Come As You Are.

In these photos I really feel like I'm channelling the 90's grunge look. Dark florals, biker boots and slouchy cuts and cross necklaces. You're probably thinking 'what is she talking about?' But I just get that vibe from it. Today I went to this great place in Wigan (Yes, Wigan) called Bygone Times. It's the best shop ever if you love snooping. It's in a massive old mill, and it's filled to the brim with bricka brack, great vintage jewelry and clothing and furniture. It's said to be haunted, well as an old mill, a lot of people would have been injured, or killed there so it's not hard to believe really. A lot of children ghosts apparently. Anyway, I picked up some great little bits for my blog swap, I hope she likes them! I have to send it tomorrow.

I wore this loose fitted dress, it's a tiny bit short in the middle but I wore a black slip underneath to cover my modesty. As the weather has turned for the worst, yet again, I wore thick black tights and my boots. This dress is really flattering, it hugs my boobs and waist, and flares out over my tummy and hips. And the hippy-esque sleeves are lovely too. The colours make it more suitable for winter, but I reckon I could accessorise it for summer and festivals.
Here's the cross necklace and chunky ring, and you can see the dark floral pattern a little bit better on this photo too. I love the dark colours. 

In other news, if you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen the new puppy, it's not ours its my Aunties. But it's the cutest thing ever, and it has wonky eyes, which make it even more adorable!!
