127 Hours

So here’s the outfit I promised you the other day =) It was from Saturday evening when I went to the cinema with my family, then out for tea afterwards, and I have to say that it was one of my favourite outfits I’ve worn in a long time =D But what’s annoying is that I won’t be able to recreate it whenever I want because the skirt is via The Lovely Ones clothes swap from Charlotte of Girl Next Door Fashion. So now I’m on the lookout for a similar skirt, which is difficult because it’s vintage haha!

I felt a little bit too dressed up for the cinema in this outfit, but that’s just how I always am!! My family kept telling me I was going to fall over because we have to walk on cobbled streets to get there, but I was fine! For some reason I felt as though I was dressed how I would be if I was a teacher (which I hope one day to be!!), I’m not sure why though =D But the skirt is so flouncy and makes you want to spin all the time haha!!

Black Jumper: Primark
Grey Polo Neck: Zara
Waist Belt: Topshop
Floral Skirt: Vintage from Charlotte via The Lovely Ones 
Green Tights: Primark
Red Three Strap Heels: Melissa Anglomania – Vivienne Westwood 
So the film we went to see was 127 Hours. It was good, but very gruesome aaaahhh! I don’t want to give it away, but my mum already did before we went to see it haha! It’s a true story of a man who is out hiking in Utah near Moab (where we went a couple of years ago so it was exciting to see!) and falls into a canyon where he gets his hand stuck behind a rock and ends up being stuck there for, you guessed it, 127 hours, with only a bottle of water and barely no food. It’s a very gritty film, but an amazing story, and definitely created a lot of conversation after haha! On the way back we stopped at our local Indian for a meal, which as always was amazing, simply because I love curry!!
These shoes are one of my three favourite pairs ever! I tried on a black pair before my leavers ball in 2009 but they were too expensive especially since I had a nice dress too, so I ended up just wearing New Look heels, but I could never forget about these heels. I kept looking at them on the internet and finally came across this amazing red pair for half price, from £110 down to £65!! That’s still pretty expensive for me, but I loved them so much I had to get them! That’s the most I’ve spent on a pair of shoes, and I got my Jeffrey Campbells for the exact same price, although they were a birthday present. So all in all, I love these shoes, they’re pretty, they smell nice (the rubber is injected with a bubblegum scent!) and they’re really comfortable (even though they’re a size too small!!).

    AMAZING SHOES!! and what a great deal on them :]]
    I really, really love the way you’ve styled my skirt :]]
    It was actually from ebay, even though it’s vintage, if that makes it any easier to track down :]]

    So so so jealous of those shoes!!!! The skirt looks great on you as well!

    I’ve been debating whether I want to see 127 Hours – I’m a total wimp went it comes to gruesome stuff. I might have to now!

    Those heels are adorable – and they smell like bubblegum too? That’s awesome. I just linked over to your blog from The Lovely Ones on Facebook, so this is my first read, but your outfits are so cute!!
