Photobucket

I got these trousers in Topshop the other day whilst birthday shopping for my brother, in the Topman section of course, they were in the sale and considerably above my usual £5.00 per item charity shop kind of budget but occasionally there comes an item which is worth pushing the boundaries for.

These are great because they fit like a charm and have butterflies all over meaning both the childish and grown up vibe are catered for. Every so often I feel a slight desire to spend a lot of money at Topshop, I never do but when I do go in on that rare day the ease of just walking around and picking up things which are designed to go together easily with no thought required does appeal to me. Charity shops require a lot more patience and imagination seeing the potential of dresses miles too long and several sizes too big. I'm kind of against the Topshop clone aesthetic, some girls can get away with wearing head to toe Topshop and look completely individual however I think I look like a zombie with no creative integrity in tact, but sometimes, just sometimes, I think how nice it would be to indulge in Topshop..

Love those. Childish yet grownup vibes are the best.

I love this. I feel the same... right down to the £5 charity shop budget.

I was very amused to read through the post! You're hilarious. Oh, and do I indulge in the same musings? Oh yes. All the time. It's gotten out of hand actually. But do NOT give in to Topshop etc... however tempting it might be! And I know it is...
I love your blog. I shall be back ;)
