Dress: Miss Selfridge      Necklace: River Island      Bag: leather market in Florence

What's this? Two new posts in one week? Blaaady hell, what's got into me?!
I guess one of the good things about being home for the summer is that I have more time for things like blogging. Having said that, I'm looking forward to getting back to uni in Cardiff... there's so little to do at home!

Today me and le parents went on a trip to Media City in Salford (near Manchester) for a look around. I, rather nerdily, found this all quite exciting - there's such a buzz in the area! And it's the kind of place I'd really love to work. If only.

Right, now to the clothes. I found this aztec dress in Miss Selfridge for a mere £7 last summer, and it's one of my favourite ever sale buys. I love it. 
The tan leather bag was one of my few purchases whilst travelling around Europe - I was actually quite restrained! My friend Sophie and I found ourselves in a HUGE leather market in Florence (I'm talking streets and streets of bags, jackets, books and belts), and knew we couldn't leave before sniffing out the perfect bag. Sophie chose a birkin look-a-like, and I this tasseled saddle bag.


Shoes: Matalan

Now, I want your opinions on the shoes. I bought these wedge high-tops last summer, but hardly wore them for a while because one of my housemates said that I "couldn't pull them off". Eventually, I decided to just say "screw it" and wear them anyway - it was just one person's opinion, after all. And I had positive feedback from other friends! I know a few people who are still firmly on the "hell NO" side of the wedge high-top debate, but I rather like them. They add something a little bit different to my normally very boho wardrobe.

What are your thoughts on wedge high-tops? Like them or loathe them?
