Northern Quarter








Dress- Charity shop- £4.99
Fan earrings- Mum's
Boots (Vagabond Dioons)- Ebay- £69.99


As I've alluded to innumerable times in my latest posts, I'm currently based in Manchester doing an internship at a PR agency. This provided me with the perfect opportunity to meet up with my blogging babe Georgie, and after an obligatory iced latte, we wandered through the Northern Quarter in search of a suitably edgy location for our photoshoots. 

In defense of a relatively straightforward outfit ensemble, I haven't brought a great deal of clothes along with me. Sometimes it's nice to keep things simple, though. I'm a fan of the mixture of pinks, purples and gold in this 60s vibe dress, and once again I've opted for flared, witchy sleeves. I finished off the look with some Chinese fan earrings because a nod to the Orient never hurts.

You may or may not have realised that I'm missing about seven inches of hair. I must admit that if friends and family haven't commented on the cut within the first five minutes of seeing me, I've been like 'SERIOUSLY, GUYS. THIS IS SUCH A BIG DEAL. NOTICE ALREADY'. I achieved this look in a slightly unconventional way: by grabbing a pair of kitchen scissors and cutting it off in two chops. I feel like the risky move worked out for the best, though, as I've ended up with healthier-looking hair at no extra cost. And that surely means I deserve to buy more clothes with the money I've saved?

Yes, that's what I thought.
