No amount of vintage dresses gives you dignity

Firstly, I need to apologise, for my slow and rubbish updating here. At the moment I'm just about managing to keep on top of work and social life here at uni but everything else (including keep my fridge stocked- woops) is falling below the radar. I love my blog and its something I don't want to become diluted by uni life and if other bloggers can keep posting through all kinds of life situations, I can too. 

I also would like to say I'm sorry this post isn't reaching you in an OOTD format. In all honesty I haven't found somewhere suitable to take photos of my outfits and I'm too much of a shrinking violet to do it in public! That being said, I did wander around campus in my pjs and a hoody earlier. I was sleepy, stressed and needed to pick up tickets from a student in a different accommodation. Clothing wasn't on my agenda.

Here are two vintage pieces I picked up in Brighton when it was very much, on my agenda!

First up is this 1960's sparkly top, which I paid a mere £18 for. Its glittery but oh so soft. The inside is like butter. I've never been more comfortable on a night out than I was when I showcased this baby. Its hand wash only, which, as a student is a bit of a hassle, but fortunately the sink in my room has been very accommodating....

 Then I picked up this 1970s scarf from a seller for a tiny fiver. Its silk and a beautiful grey lilac colour. Its covered in images of famous London sites such as Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London. As you can see from the images, it needs an iron (under a tea towel of course!) But I can't wait to wrap this around my neck on the blustery Autumn days we are transitioning into.

I hope you are all well,
