I'm a Nasty Gal!

See what I did there with the title? I'm totally linking it with the previous post ;p
Due to having to cancel going to my friend's birthday party last night and snowboarding today with my boyfriend because I have to grade papers I'm decidedly fed up and pissed off! To remedy this I did some sale shopping and some non-sale shopping at Nasty Gal. Here's what I bought.

Draped Across Dress - Camel
Norwick Chain Boot

I've wanted some over the knee boots for ages and even more so after I made this post here. So I'm very happy I've found these ones. I love the chains and metal toes as they add something a bit different and the colour is gorge. And the dress and ring were total impulse buys, haha! In this post here I'm wearing my sweater and shield ring from Nasty Gal. It's one of my new favourite online shops (I'm a latecomer I know!).
Which is your favourite of my new purchases? I can't wait for my parcel to arrive!

Are you a Nasty Gal?

Nasty Gal has some fab new things for sale and I'm having to stop myself from buying everything I want, haha! Here's a roundup of (quite a) few of my favourite things.

Hello! I'm taking a break from a very big pile of marking I currently have so I thought I'd show you what I wore to our friends wedding in Texas. I wore the same dress, necklace and shoes to mine and Tom's 1 year anniversary dinner last August but didn't get any good pictures.

How gorgeous is my friends wedding dress btw? It was just as gorgeous from the back as well.
Right, back to the work! Have a good night/day guys.

Zara dress; H&M jacket, cardigan and necklace; Max Mara shoes; Target shades.

I heart Vivienne!

I am soooooooooooooo unbelievably busy at the moment so here's a small post to show you what my fabulous boyfriend got me (as a total surprise) for Christmas.

Vivienne Westwood Diamante Heart Ring Red

My very own Vivienne Westwood ring! I love that it's a heart too as the finger I wear it on has a heart tattoo so it's all matchy matchy in a slightly sad way, haha! Isn't it gorgeous?! OK, well it's midnight here and after a full night of marking I still have work left to do before I get up at 7 for work so I must off! Have a good day / night and hopefully I won't be so busy soon (yeh right).

My New Favourite Outfit

When I was in Texas I put together the following outfit. Since then I've worn it sooooo many times! I think my boyfriend's getting a bit bored of seeing me in it! These pictures were taken in the garden of Guenther House waiting for our table. It's a fab place to have brunch. I had some AMAZING breakfast tacos. Anyway, if I'm not putting up any outfit posts it's because I'm living in this!

Leopard dress from H&M; cropped sweater from nastygal; leggings (to keep me warm) from Dorothy Perkins; aviator jacket from H&M; JC Lita boots; belt from American Apparel; bracelets from street vendor (aka cute child) in Cambodia; shades from Target.

Happy New Year!

Hey guys. Sorry I've been AWOL. I was on holiday for 3 weeks.
My boyfriend and I went to Texas for our friends wedding. I love Texas! We went to San Antonio where they have the gorgeous River Walk and such good food! Then I went home, well up to Scotland actually, for Christmas with the family but got caught up in all the flight delays, but that's another story! Then I went down to London for New Years to see my boyfriend and do a job interview test thingy. So as you can see I've been meccha busy!

I just got back into Japan yesterday evening and the boyfriend gets back this evening so it's a day of food shopping, washing and tidying for me, oh joy!

So instead of loading all my holiday pics in one go, here's my Lanvin loves H&M dress I got. I wore it out to a birthday party just before we left for Texas and I love it! Although the width is maybe not best for Japan....kept getting squished in the street and in the bar, haha!

Lanvin loves H&M dress, H&M aviator jacket, American Apparel scarf, JC Lita boots.
