An officer and a gentleman

Hey there!
Hope everyone had a nice weekend. I fully intended to start revision and serious dissertation work today but I slept in and then got a message from my Mum, asking me to go shopping (she wanted a necklace from my work) so obviously it didn't happen! Today I wore a skirt I bought yesterday in the Dorothy perkins sale, it has ruffles and a zip! I'm not the biggest fan of that shop but I do like their sales!

I wore my authentic Granny boots (bought my my Gran in a Granny-ish kind of shop) with Johnathon Aston ankle socks from tightsplease and H&M black tights. The skirt is from Dorothy Perkins and the t-shirt is Topshop, the cardigan is from H&M.
I wore my DIY cuff and studded goth cuff thing! In the sale at Dorothy Perkins I also got this coat, it's kinda Navy style and so for funsies I tried it on with my Brother's vintage sailor hat (which I love but doubt I could wear in public!). I borrowed it from him ages ago and I don't think he's getting it back anytime soon!
I'll get a better photo of it when I actually wear it out!
I thought I'd take a photo of my outerwear from yesterday (underneath wasn't so interesting, just a Primark dress!) because I never really show you my outside looks and I can assure you I am always wearing a jacket or coat - too cold not to!
I was also wearing my vintage fur scarf/shawl thing which a good friend gave me for my birthday, thanks F! I am actually in love with this thing!
The jacket was bought last year in New York, in the sale at Urban Outfitters and the socks I'm wearing are from some fetish shop on ebay!

The sailor coat is the most amazing thing ever! You must wear it with the hat though! Can you imagine getting drunk wearing that? It would be the best thing ever!

I love the coat, and your brothers hat does top it off nicely!
The other coat and the fur collar looks so sweet.

Well, both dresses in the post are actually near ankle leng, but I just double it up underneath, and sew the hem to the waist of the dress. Maybe a similar thing could be done, just by sewing the lining higher, if you get what i mean?!

I really want that DP skirt. I must go see if I can find it tomorrow! How much was it?

Fur scarves are addictive. Seriously I think that everything I put on can be improved with a fur scarf!
