Another suit!


JACKET: Primark, £10 (sale)
TROUSERS: Primark, £5 (sale)
JUMPER: Topshop, £12 (sale)
BAG: Cambridge Satchel, gift
SHOES: Dr Martens x Agyness Deyn, £135

Sorry for the suuuuuper close up photo, I wanted to show you my new favourite glasses! I've always loved the geeky style glasses Gok Wan has worn, so when his range for Specsavers came out, I knew I wanted some (I even used to fake eye tests just so I could wear glasses!) This is the outfit I wore last Friday when I went into London for an exciting interview for an internship. I say interview, it was more of just a chat and a cup of tea! We have to take up a work placement next semester at uni, and I have found the PERFECT place for me. Fingers crossed I get it, or it's going to be one hell of a panic to find somewhere else in time! *prays*

I think this is my new favourite suit! I found it in Primark sale last week and DIED! I wanted it ages ago but didn't wanna pay £40+ for it since it is just Primark. But I managed to snap it up for £15 and i'm soooo happy! Although, Primark sizing is really weird - i'm usually a size 8/10 but the size 10 trousers are HUGE on me, and the size 8 jacket is TINY on me, it's like a size 6. Whereas in Topshop, I can barely fit into a size 10! It's ridiculous, I wish all shops would follow some kind of sizing guidelines so you can buy something and know it's gonna fit you, without trying it on. Grrr. Rant over!

Anyway, I kinda felt like I was walking round London in my pyjamas. One man on the underground even shouted "nice onesie". I cringed but at least I looked cuter than him right?

My work deadline is Thursday at 10am - so I must dash, got to whip up some trousers today and about 100 other things.

  1. You always suit everything you post, I am so shocked that it was from Primark and even better in the sale! I also agree that the sizing in Primark is shocking haha you can never have two items the same size even if the labels are the same! Loved the post as always:) xxxxxx
