I've been looking for a perfect pair of black stilletos for ages and just when I was giving up hope for something a bit different, I found this pair from Hobbs Unlimited. Not going to lie, Hobbs isn't exactly shop I normally swing by but after seeing this pair on their website, I did swing by and also fell in love with an amazing black dress and seriously killer over the knee boots...I'll be definetely stopping by again soon. Only shows that sometimes things we look for are in the most unexpected places.

I'm so loving the whole 70's revival, the bow tie blouses, floppy hats (yet to purchase one...already on save on ASOS ;), flared jeans and most of all - the platform shoes! So Charlie's Angels...
Majorly gutted I have not listened to my mum back in the day and donated whole of her passed down hippy flower-power wardrobe to charity shop.
Lessons learnt -always listen to you parents and don't ever throw anything away, otherwise Starsky and Hutch police will be on their way...or even worst, Kojak will come and get you...or shave you.

I didn't actually forget about these Marc by Marc Jacobs shoes (shockingly!) I bought back in July in NYC.
But sometimes it's nice to hold off these nice little things, until you wake up and the first thing on your mind is just that thing...and then it just makes your day just this little bit special.
...OK b*llocks, I completely forgot I had them until I was looking for another pair of shoes and had to move the MbMJ box to find them.

One thing I like about Autumn is that occasionally you get a nice warm day, when you can still wear your summer shorts but also can get some boots out and a nice furry gilet, throw it all together and not look like a freak.
Shame that day in UK is like Christmas, happens only once a year.

Everyone has their daily morning routines, I've got two.
First one is pre-work - wake up, spend few minutes figuring out what day it is, swearing after realising it's still a weekday, go for a run, shower, brekkie, hit public transport.
Second one : upon arrival at work -switch on PC and first check of the day is Topshop website "new arrivals" (dear Employer, I would like to reassure you that Inbox gets checked straight after...ASOS, Whistles, US Weekly...). Anyways, I've had my eye on this shaggy number from Topshop's Bavaria range ever since i saw AW look book back in the non existing summer and this morning, there it was, down to the last couple slightly too big sizes but better get it then regret it (another one of my shopping motto's).
One thing I have been dwelling on though is the fact that I have been to Bavaria and must say, haven't seen many that stylish Bavarians out there...
Good beer though.
