ZIGGY PLAYED GUITAR

Has anyone been in Primark (aka Primarni) recently, I went in last week to buy some new pyjamas (I got the cutest pair of cherry printed jammies) and I have to say they have some amazing printed tanks in store. I had to go for this David Bowie number as a few of my uni friends went through a phase of calling me Ziggy, thanks to my hairstyle of the time. Plus I am a little bit of a rock chick at heart - just a little bit 'neater' around the edges!

I love all the loose fitting tanks that are popular at the moment, not only are they comfortable, but they disguise a giant food baby, which I had last night after stuffing myself with curry for my Dad's birthday meal out...(the fact that I had to unbutton my jeans was also well hidden). Everyone had a great time laughing at my Grandad's stories - he has to be one of the funniest me alive, even the waiter seemed quite taken with him!

Well anyway, here is what I wore...

Tee and Jeans, Primark
Clutch and Rings, H&M
Shoes, New Look
Beaded Collar, Vintage
Necklace, Punky Pins



Barry M Mint Green and Gold Foil Effect Nail Paints

I love that I got to wear my vintage 1940's collar for the first time, it really is a thing of beauty, I cant help but think what the original owner would think of the way I wore it, compared to her own personal style - she would probably think I was mad.

Do  you guys like to mix vintage gems with your contemporary wardrobe? I would love to see some inspiration and examples so link me up!

  6. That's so fab. I love Bowie anyway. I had so many 1990's band t-shirts, they'd be worth loads now. I used to go to see all the grunge and indie bands.

    I don't have much vintage stuff to mix it up, well, not nearly as much as I'd like.
