I'M BAAAAACK! :P
I apologise for my lack of blogging decorum. Just had to get it out.
Remember how I told everyone I was broke because I spent so much on ASOS? Well, I didn't lie. And to celebrate my lack of money and re-emergence from the study cave, this post is all about the old favourites you thought were out of fashion and wanted to throw out.
Which brings me to rule #1: NEVER CHUCK OUT ANY PAST HG ITEMS. Because after a year or so, the trend is forgotten and you can bring your ex-HG item back into fashion. For example,I snagged this skirt at a sale LAST YEAR at the peak of the electric blue trend. I recently pulled it back out and wore this through the whole tribal/aztec obsession and the baroque print craze. People would ask me where I got that tribal/baroque print skirt from and I'd smile sheepishly at them and tell them I forgot because I didn't want to get caught for being such a cheapo.
Okay you can stop giving me weird looks now.
So point is, things will always somehow come back into fashion in one way or another. You can then use this to your advantage: people can't buy the same thing as you and copy you because buying a similar piece would involve time travel. And who can actually time travel? (except unicorns because they are awesome)
I paired this with a simple black top to counter the complicated patterns on the skirt, and a pair of brown wedges to match the browns and golds on the pattern. Also brought out my horse LaPalette bag that has been in my HG collection since I got it. I love the design because it's so clever and different and I LOVE horses. Plus the sizing is perfect for all my stuff and the colour matches almost everything. I saw it in Korea while on holiday and despite my overweight luggage, I bought it and lugged it home. To complete the look, I added a simple necklace so everything doesn't look too bottom heavy.

Holidays are here and its about a week before I fly back home and there is so much packing to do. like, HOW THE HELL DID I ACCUMULATE ALL THIS SHIT?
On another note, here's a letter I penned to my bed:
I'm sorry I cheated you out of our quality time to spend it with exams. I was going through a masochistic phase where I'd almost kill myself trying to remember things and then sit in a hall for a straight three hours trying to remember everything. I'm sorry it reduced our quality time from 8 to only 4 hours per day. I'm over it now. I promise not to have any more affairs because I understand you're the only one for me. I love you. Please take me back.
with all my love,
HAPPY SUMMER HOLIDAYS AND MUCH UNICORN LOVE,
