I've had a disappointingly boring one this year; I spent the majority of it sitting in freezing uni buildings reading Walter Scott.
I did however have an English Lit tutorial this morning, in which we were talking about Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (very aptly timed in my opinion). My tutor had suggested the week before to question while reading whether the monster was in fact real or not, and it's safe to say I was pretty creeped out after finishing reading it last night. I absolutely love Gothic fiction and all things dark and mysterious so I'm pretty sad not to have any more plans to celebrate today.
However, it was also my nineteenth birthday a couple of weeks ago, and so in the spirit of all that is macabre I treated myself to a pair of the most fantastically witchy shoes from Zara.
(Apologies for the rather rubbish online store image - I don't actually have the shoes at home at the moment so will upload some proper photos once I do!)
Aren't they amazing though?! Properly, unabashedly pointy and wonderful. I gave them a test-run at work last week and they gained me a lot of kind compliments, however they did (understandably) start pinching my feet after a few hours. I can't wait to incorporate them into my next outfit post, which will hopefully be another collaboration with Louise from Love from Lou Lou! We've been trying to arrange something for months but sadly we've been busy bees and just not had the chance.
Last but not least, I've composed yet another Wish List to tantalize my (and your, hopefully) sartorial tastebuds, enjoy! Forever wishing my student budget stretched that little bit further...
Look at this Topshop pea coat, just LOOK. It's PERFECT.
I've been loving roll neck tops recently, and this one from Zara is beautiful.
Incidentally, I've also been looking (in vain) for the perfect pair of checked trousers. I'll keep you posted...
This Topshop skirt is just full of snakey, asymmetrical loveliness. Want.
This Forever 21 perspex clutch I spotted while I was last in Glasgow, and I really wish I had bought it! I just think it's amazingly cool and unusual, if completely impractical. All of the ones in the store were a little scratched so I thought £20 was a little steep for that... But now it's gone from the website! (Hence no link and rubbish image). Sad Emily.
Have an amazing weekend! x
