Faux Suede Skirt - New Look | T-shirt - Primark | Belt - Vintage | Fedora - H&M | Flatforms - hiddenfashion.com | Fishnet Socks - Primark | Sunnies - Primark | Bag - Primark | Necklace - George @ Asda

For starters, how fab is this skirt?! It wasn't a bad price actually, £14.99. I'm only saying that because it's the cheapest I've been able to buy in my size even though it's a size 8 and it comes up like a circle skirt on me which I hate so I have to pull it up into a high waisted skirt with my vintage belt which was a great find in a charity shop. There were literally NO size 6's in this skirt which I was a bit sad about but I was determined to make this skirt look good and fit me right. So folding it in a way at the back so that it looked like it was designed like that was how I made it look better without having to part with it and take it back. I'm not going to take it back as knowing me I won't be able to get it in my size till it's out of season...And I want it throughout AW15.

Keeping the retro feeling going, with a fedora and cat eye shades for a feminine hint. Also adding a slight hint of grunge/gothicness with fish net socks which were only 50p in Primark - also bought them in white. I thought they added a different touch to my feet with my sandals and as I don't like to dress like anyone else I thought this look would be awesome put together. Also adding a snakeskin print bag from Primark which would you believe was only £6?! It looks a lot more expensive to me, I thought it would of been part of Primark's Limited Edition range which is more pricey but when I looked at the price tag (which I always do first before I buy anything) it only said £6 and it was straight in my basket for that price!

As for where the picture with the graffiti background was taken was at Fargo Village in Coventry. It holds a coffee shop, Vintage Market (which I was mostly interested in), art shop (including marvel, anime and all that geeky stuff I'm into except anime which I'm really not a fan of - just my opinion), book shop and a few different type of clothes shops. There's even a shop that holds them smelly stick things that I can never remember the name of. While I was there with my best friend, we were definitely dressed the part, me in my 70's retro gear and my best friend in her 50's get up which made her look fabulous and showed off her beautiful curves. We were even complimented by a lovely woman on what we were both wearing while looking round the vintage market. I also bought a retro floral 1970's roll neck top which you can see here. Expect Confetti Crowd vibes mixed with my personal style on that post.

After our stroll around Fargo Village we walked down to the ice cream parlour for a lovely ice cream sundae - which was extremely filling but delicious. As you can see by the pictures above the ice cream was very well presented. The price of the sundae I had was about £5.25 but it was lush I have to say and I seriously recommend the place - Lickety Lick is the name of the place located on Far Gosford Street in Coventry City Centre.

As for the rest of the pictures, we took them down a cobble stone street next to Coventry Cathedral if anyone was wondering.

  2. Love this look, I too have that same problem with skirts sometimes and have to belt them to make them high-waisted but a good belt can do wonders for an outfit too I've found!x
