A £10 Oufit & Box Of Hair Dye Later

So, I have a bit of a huge announcement to make. I am not longer ginger! Yes! you heard it! I have ditched the "mary street porter" do (yes my sister told me I looked like her) for a Louise Brooks-esque do. I am now rocking black hair. please let me know what you think!

Funny story, I was in need of a major hair dying session as my dark brown roots had slowly started to takeover the upper section of my hair that even my nieces pointed out that I had "orange, brown & black hair" cheers.

I had a debate in my own mind as to how I would go about dying my hair. Should I dye it the same or go for something new. I came to the conclusion that I would either go black or ginger. After countless conversations with my boyfriend and sister who were not very helpful to say the least, I still had no clue as to what to do. So I pulled out a trusty ten pence piece and flipped it. Heads Ginger, Tails Black. Black it is.

I think that dying my hair black has made me look a little like a female Ryan Jarman which I suppose isn't all bad because Alex has a huge man crush on him so I think this has only made him fancy me more.

On another note I went Shopping (again) to the brilliant shop that is cow. All I can say is that me and a rail full of 2 for £10 clothes is pretty lethal!

What I Am Wearing
Belt-New Look-£4.99
Various bracelets-New Look
Doc Martens-£40-Love is not the word

How can you not buy an outfit that cost you £10 (barring the new doc martens, which I hope you have all noted!) I am a sucker for cheap clothes that are too beautiful for words.

The rip in the tights is not intentional. These tights were actually quite expensive as far as tights go, and after wearing them once and laddering them I was pretty pissed off and now refuse to not wear them so I will be rocking the ripped tights look for a while, regardless to the fact my mother-in-law to be called me a tramp.

I have still not shown you my clothes I brought on the shopping spree with dear betti, so I think its safe to say that I should definitely go on a shopping ban and show you all the clothes you are yet to discover that are buried in the mess that is my wardrobe. My bank balance would certainly appreciate this. I know that my clothes are cheap but it doesn't make any difference if you just buy three times as much stuff.

On another not my dear cousin from the lovely world of Weymouth is here to stay for the week! We have influenced her to start her own blog and she did her first blog post today! Give her a bit of support and pop over to her page! show us how lovely us blogging bunch are ;) CLICK ME!

      thanks for the comments love! x

  3. I'm such a COW fan myself, too! Love this look and I would steal those Docs off your feet if I could! SO. GORGEOUS.

    1. Cow is just amazing! A shop that's different every time you visit! and I always manage to find a few gems!

      There is no way that i would ever let you steal the Docs from off my feet. Although i wouldn't blame you for trying as they are the best things ever.

      thanks love!

    -Sunny <3

    1. aw! Thanks so much!

      Thanks for the follow and the comment love, means a lot! <3

  6. You got the shoes! Outstanding! And I love the black hair, don't go back to ginge just yet - get a mental haircut to match instead. Preferably a bowl-cut a la Ryan J. Everyone should model themselves after him. He's a legend. Did I tell you about the time I met him when I visited?? It was so embarrassing.

    Ha! Charming mother-in-law! Personally, I think looking like a tramp is only a good thing. Peace symbol tights were not made to be worn pristine anyhow.


  7. Love your outfit! Nice shoes.

    1. Thanks dear! I am in love with these shoes! :) <3
