(Hairpiece: C/O Crown & Glory, Top: C/O Oh My Love, Jeans: American Apparel, Shoes: Topshop, Lipstick: Kate Moss for Rimmel Shade 107)

If I'm ever going to feel sassy, or ever near to Del-Rey standards (sitting in a towel turban and oversized pyjamas I am feeling far from it), I can recommend a recipe of off the shoulder American Apparel (or something similar), combined with a big flower-adorned barnet and a slick of ladylike lipstick. Usually a sartorial wallflower when it comes to head wear; having entered a hat phase this Autumn I was delighted to rediscover this beautiful burgundy headband I've had since summer which now seems absolutely perfect for the season, and something I can't wait to wear more- nothing like adding a bit of Pre-Raphaelite elegance to a pretty casual outfit right? Crown and Glory do it pretty darn well. I was also caught channelling another burgundy coordinated outfit-shocker! Saying that I do love this rose appliqué top, it certainly takes the slouchy top to a more glamorous level, which I certainly can't complain about.

Anyway, how have you all been? I've had a busy music filled week/end and saw three of my favourite artists; Haim (3 super babes), Spector and Tribes- which was additionally for War Child- good music and even better causes = always a winner. I've also been thinking about anything I could do better/change on my blog. I'd love to hear if you have any suggestions to what I could add/remove etc! Answers on a postcard!

    As for your blog, don't change anything! I love it a huge amount.
    Maybe some music posts would be a good idea? I'd love to hear some of the bands you listen to, as from what I can gather our tastes are more similar. I also really loved the posts on the live music photography you did. :)

  46. I love your hair and make up. beautiful!
    I've been re-jigging my blog lately too... it's hard to know what to change! I like less outfit posts but they are always so popular that i feel like no one else feels that way... but I guess people can tell whether you're being genuine or not so I don't do outfit posts because it feels weird to me. But I love looking at others!
