Well it looks like I'm back to the good old red, white and blue combo, oops! Seriously, if you weren't here this summer, check it out, I think they were the only colours I wore! I'm still dressing from my overnight bag at Mother's so there's a bit of a mish mash going on, plus I wanted an excuse to wear these new tights from eBay - I don't really do coloured tights but when I do, they might as well be bright!

Not sure I've ever shared my watch on here...it's a fab silver Dunder Mifflin man's watch, I got it on eBay for the grand sum of $0.99 - then paid $12 postage and £5 to get it fitted to my wee wrists... there's a bargain in there somewhere!
My hair is still bothering me, so I've started rolling it back at the front for something different! Only problem is it's rather thick, so it takes about 10 kirby grips to hold it in place, faff...
So remember the other day when Mother went shopping and I skived off to work? Well I did actually get as far as TK Maxx since I was returning some jeans, and Mother got all annoying and decided to buy me something in place of them, so I came out with a couple of bargains!
Hush Puppies brogues, original price £65, my price £15! I've heard folk raving about this brand but I kinda associate them with um...old lady shoes... until I slipped these on my feet - so comfy! Can't wait to wear them.
And I also fell a bit in love with this Clements Ribeiro jumper, original price £130 (!!!), my price £24.99, yeah! It's a rather lovely, simple style that still manages to indulge my love of stripes - this may be coming out on Christmas day!
In other news, I went to Dorothy Perkins last week and inquired about the whereabouts of their Tall range - and the sales assistant told me it was no longer being sold in stores. Cue me going into a huff and emailing them last night - can't wait to hear what brilliant excuse they come up with! New Look actually told me the same story, but I tend to avoid shopping there so I'm still deciding whether to bother them too or let them get on with it... Am I going overboard, or is it unfair that many stores cater to petite and overweight customers but not tall ones? Even Topshop has reduced their tall range to a single rail in my closest store, what's going on?!
Well this will likely be my last pre Christmas post, I'm back to work tomorrow - 11 hour shift on Christmas eve, argh! But I get to finish at 9pm instead of 11pm, woop de bloody do.... If last year is anything to go by I'll be in the absolute worst mood and you won't want me destroying your Christmas spirit anyway, so I'll wish you a festive goodness now and go away for a few days... Merry Christmas everyone!
