So yesterday I was having one of “Those Days”. My fringewouldn’t sit right, I was late for School, I got the worst test results I’ve ever had back, I walked into a tree when I was talking to someone, you know – one of those days where nothing went right. But when I came home, my delivery from Modcloth had come!

 I was very excited as for years I have been window shopping on their site. But the other day I saw some stuff I liked on sale and I had more money than usual as I worked the four days after New Year’s, and I caved in.  My friend requested pictures of what I bought, and being overexcited by it, I’ve decided to do a whole blog post. They're all no longer available so I wont be able to put links. 

(The moment you’ve been waiting for… You have no Idea Modcloth)

The first thing I noticed was how adorable the box was. I mean look at it, it’s dotty! I’ve kept the box and am planning to keep something in it, maybe my crocheting yarn. 

(It has words inside)

(Tape even has their logo on it!)

So enough about the box.

(It’s so cute!)

I bought three things from Modcloth, the first was this dress.

I’m pretty late to the whole galaxy print trend and I thought that this dress was a cute mix of cute tea dresses with galaxy print.

Next of I got this novelty lama print jumper.

(it’s so weird, I love it!)

If you haven’t noticed by now, I’ve kind of got a jumper problem. I counted all the jumpers I own the other day and I have 17. To be fair, I practically live in them and I don’t have any novelty print ones, so this was a good buy.

The last thing I got was this plaid coat

(It defiantly doesn't go with that dress)

I only own one winter coat which I just consistently wear so I thought it would be a good idea to get a new one. It has a very early 60’s feel to it – a wee bit like the style in Call the Midwife right now – and I’m a sucker for plaid and tartan
The dress was $27 (£17), the jumper was $21 (£13) and the coat was $30 (£19). The postage was a killer – $33.40 (£21) – but otherwise it wasn’t too dear and expected when it’s from America

Today I'm listening to:

This is going to look bad as I'm putting up a Primark Haul post/video on Thursday. I promise I’m not a haul blog; I’m just excited by Modcloth!


  1. bad fringe days are the worst! suffered from one today too...

    HOWEVER THAT DRESS. I'm in love. supergorgeous! looks great on ya. x

    1. Its amazing, i saw it and thought "I want!". I was what started my buying spree

  2. Love all these items!
    The dress looks great on you :)

  3. That coat is absolutely perfect! And the galaxy dress actually looks like it has lights shining on it. I did a double-take. Modcloth is so awesome!

  4. The print on the dress is simply gorgeous and the sweater is beyond cute. Hahaha I completely understand your sweater addiction, they are so comfy and so easy to style :)

    1. They are basically what I wear everyday!

  5. OMG, all the items are cute, good purchases! it is true that delivery expenses are high, but Modcloth is so adorable...
    Bad fringe is everyday problem, hehe, I cut it myself, have you tried? :-)

    1. Once, it ended up slopping the wrong way...

  6. I have way too many sweaters too. Like a box full and it doesn't stay very cold where I live for that long. I don't think you can ever have too many though! I'm loving your galaxy print dress too. My sister actually has that one!

Raccoons and Ringlets

After we went swimming the other day, I just let my hair dry naturally. This produced what has been dubbed as my “triangle hair”. My hair usually curls tighter when I leave it, but I’ve been straightening it a lot more often and it seems to have melted my hair or something because the last couple of times it was just straight frizz. The lighting is terrible in all these pictures so if I look a little red that’s why. The jumper I'm wearing is from the men’s section. I find that guy’s jumpers are a lot warmer and the neck-line is so high, you don’t need a scarf. In Primark specifically, the men’s jumpers seem to be less itchy and wash a lot better as they don’t shrink as badly. The styles are usually very similar to the woman’s and they seem to be in more muted colours which is something I particularly like.      I'm wearing: Jumper from Primark (they are  usually  £6 but I managed to get mine at the start of summer for £3.)

Writers block

So I haven’t posted in the last couple of weeks. I had everything ready for posting back however many Thursdays ago it was that I was supposed to post this except for the text. I had no idea what to write for it. I am the first to admit that I'm not very good at writing for this anyway. I’ve never been very good with non-fiction writing. It doesn’t come very easily to me and nothing interesting enough to write about ever happens to me. But ever since people I know in real life started reading this, I feel as though I should be better at this; and my technique for things I don’t think I'm very good at yet, put them off until last minute. One thing with not blogging as frequently as I promised is that even though I have had my hair short for over a month but I haven’t put any pictures up on here. I really like it; I'm even considering cutting it even shorter. I also want to dye it. I’ve never dyed all my hair a different colour; I had it dip-dyed r

M7974 at Ardoch Roman Fort

Last Autumn, I got a swatch of this lovely Atelier Brunette Viscose Crepe . At the time I was looking for a lining to a jacket (that I’m still working on) but it didn’t quite fit the bill. I absolutely loved the fabric though, so I kept the swatch. I had put off getting more to make a full garment because I didn’t trust myself to make something nice enough from it. At the time, I probably only sewed once a week for about 3 hours and the things I made were full of mistakes and dumb fabric choices. I’m going to stick some of these up on my blog at some point but even though I was proud of the fact I could make then, I didn’t really enjoy wearing the clothes enough to justify investing in nice fabric. Another issue was that I couldn’t decide on what to make from the fabric. I was jumping between a blouse or a wrap dress but none of my ideas felt perfect. I really liked the M7974 but I had it in my head that I only wanted to make view C in a light weight linen like fabric and
