Louder. Faster. Stronger. Better.

Is anyone else listening to the DJ Fresh track Louder? A lot....?

Shirt, H&M DE
Jeans, American Eagle
Shoes, Primark
Bag, Nica
On to business. Today I'm feeling the 70's again. It seems to be a common occurrence with these jeans- probably because I'm so used to only ever wearing straight cut jeans. But the shirt, the flare of the jeans and my Alicia bag are all drawing my thoughts to the decade that produced ABBA, Space Hoppers, Record Players and the Ford Cortina.

I also can't work out if I like this outfit or not. The shirt was purchased from H&M in Leipzig about 18-20 months ago and I'm about 10kg lighter than at the time, so it doesn't really fit that well, and the jeans are obscenely low waisted. But something about it is easy, comfy and kind of natural.

 Some accessories for you, because you know how much I love them. As part of my jewellery clear out last week I re-discovered this beautiful Spanish ring. I bought it on a holiday 5+ years ago along with another which I'll show you another time and because they're a bit tarnished they got shoved in a drawer and forgotten about. But tarnished or not I love this ring and the other that came from the shop because I've never seen anything quite like it anywhere else. There's something oddly nautical about this one, I just can't work out what it is....

A note about my watch, it is a mens watch. I find the ladies section a bit dainty and delicate for my blunt trauma personality, chunky wrists and general clumsiness. I love and have loved the simplicity and weight of mens watches for several years after being given one that someone thought I'd like. Whilst androgynous and unisex clothing seems to have really taken off, I think a lot of women who are looking for something a bit different or a bit heavier often dismiss mens accessories as too... well... manly. The truth is, that there are lots of amazing pieces out there that do not scream *ICOULDN'TFINDALADIESVERSIONIAMAGIRLIPROMISE* and will set you apart from the masses.

I'd better get back to it, I write this whilst waiting for the floor to dry having just mopped it and with a zillion things to do before Saturday because I'm off to London. My interview is on Monday and potentially another lined up on the Tuesday. I've had a frantic ordering session from ASOS with a 20% off code I had through my e-mail and making use of their next day delivery and from Clothing at Tesco thanks to a 20% off code that the lovely Gem has posted today (along with several others I might add). Here's hoping there's something interview-suitable in there somewhere.

So until I get back... and I do have something very special planned for you all when I get back. Hasta pronto.
