hat - Topshop boots - Boohoo watch - mk
this is the outfit I wore yesterday for a visit day to the University of Manchester. If you follow me on instagram then you'll probably know that this top only arrived the day before but I was just so excited to own it I had to wear it asap.
I was trawling through asos marketplace last week and spotted this beauty. I've made a pledge to myself to start investing more in my clothes, so instead of just shopping in primark (don't worry I still love your bargains primarni ;) I'm trying to buy better quality, unique, vintage pieces that I won't get bored of or rip in a few months. this blouse definitely meets that criteria; I actually can't believe its from the 80s and in such immaculate condition, the annie girls clearly did an excellent job at restoring it as it's better than brand new!
when I first laid eyes on what I now call 'my new love', I knew I had to have it! it goes with so many things! I've styled it quite simply with just my disco pants, but I can also easily wear it with light wash jeans, shorts, skirts, and because it hasn't got a collar I can even wear it as a blazer over dresses in the summer. if you can't tell already I'm extremely happy with my new purchase and will probably be wearing it a little too much in the future ;) I'll also definitely be purchasing more items from Annie & the Mannequins as I've literally fell in love with all their clothes, they're amazing quality and the girls provide an excellent service; my top only took one day to arrive after it had been dispatched! I highly recommend you check out their website, their asos marketplace account (which has a wider collection) and their blog (which I perved at the other day and looked at a years worth of posts because I loved all their outfit ideas so much!)
You'll be glad to know that I'm now going to shut up rambling on and love you and leave you all. hope you all have a good week!
