Hello babes! I've been trying to look at my fashion in a different way. Instead of thinking of everything in a fast-fashion-everything-new-is-wonderful way I'm reminding myself how many old faves I have and how glorious it is to wear things I want to wear, rather than feeling the pressure to be Mrs Bloggy McBloggerface at all times. I always feel bad if I show off old stuff on this blog, which is ridiculous because none of us are Kardashian rich (as far as I know!) Let's dispense with this obsession for new shit, yeah? Of course new things are nice an' all, but so is being able to afford your rent. 😀 So yes, I need to get rid of this blogger mentality I carry around with me and stop apologising for 'everything old' posts. So with a proud flourish and some jazz hands I say - everything in this post is old, especially the bag, which I've had since the late 90s/early 2000s.

If this bag could talk I'd be in a world of trouble. It's been to numerous gigs and festivals with me and I've even thrown up on it, for shame! (Don't worry, it's been washed since then!) It's just the right size to put my phone, purse, lippie and mirror in. It's such an ice breaker wherever I go.

These photos were taken at glorious Batemans, which was Rudyard Kipling's home. It's a little spot of heaven in the East Sussex countryside and I'll be sharing some more photos of the scenery another day.

I'd been doing so well at the not-buying thing but it's all gone to pot as I'm going on holiday soon and I got holiday panic buying fever. Does anyone else do that or is it just me?! I have LOADS of plans to customise clothes I've already got and I'm going to be doing how-tos as well. I cleared off my kitchen table today so I would have the room to do show you how I customise t-shirts and so on. Keep 'em peeled, and thanks for reading.

  2. The bag is so cute!! Love it! ;-)
    And yes, I have the holiday panic buying fever too. So I'm looking all the clothes that I have and trying to fix what I need or what I don't need.
    I'm so happy that I'm not alone with this...*lol*

    I love the tee with the skirt and I'm looking to the AL. They have such great clothes. ;-)
    Thank you for this inspiration!

    Hugs,
    Emmi

    1. Thank you Emmi. I've bought a lot of things in the last couple of weeks. I'm awful at panic buying. But once I'm back from holiday I've got to be a good girl again as we need to save for a mortgage deposit. Then I'll get stuck into customising things so they feel new. Big hugs! <3

    1. Aww, Bagpuss jammies sound awesome! I wish there was more Bagpuss stuff. I never really watched it much as a child, but I fell in love as an adult. :) I also have a talking Bagpuss alarm clock, and a couple of stuffed toys. Big hugs Rosie! xxx
