I love you through sparks and shining dragons

Dress: Pussycat @ New Look. Bag: Matalan. Boots: Truffle. Hat: H&M Kids.

I always told myself I wasn't going to join the Allegra crew, thinking that by not being cool would make me cool. But when I eyed up the velvet beauts in Topshop, I began to think again. So why did I not purchase them I hear you wonder? I am not a poor student, yet I just couldn't afford the price tag that came with it, especially with the question "I'm just not sure how much I'd wear them".
But then, on a wonderful shopping trip in Leicester avec Mama Mcfred yesterday, I found these, just tucked away, in one of those little shops you'd normally dismiss! I tried them on, I just wanted to be cool. And I HAD to have them. Why so different you ask again? The extremely fantastic price tag of £15! And If I don't wear them all day everyday then SO be it! But for now.. I LOVE THEM!
Plus the bonus of buying these, means today I have had a right old food day! A lovely lunch with my GORGEOUS friends Jessicat and Juicy Lucie in the best farm shop going! Followed by a sexual dinner date with my other beautiful friend Carly
I love food too much. And my beautiful friends... This week is definitely becoming a favourite.

  1. Looking good Katy! Beaut outfit and those boots are to die for. I missed out on the Allegra hype as I am skint pretty much forever but those don't break the bank and look more than convincing as an expensive alternative. Have a lovely time with your friends, you must tell us all about your lovely food choices, yes please. xxx

  25. This is such a gorgeous outfit. It's so casual yet really pretty. I love the fact that you found them so barganilious. I know for me sometimes the price is so crazy I can't actually bring myself to justify it. Bargain goodies of things you want are totally the best!

  26. No way did you get those shoes for £15! They're rad. And who doesn't like food? The question is, food or friends...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yep, what a bargain hey? And they're super comfy too! THAT is a tricky question, friends. no food. no friends. x
