I've been getting a lot of positive comments about my hair, which both pleases and perplexes me. I think of my hair as a big pile of mess. It's naturally very curly, and is really difficult to look nice and sleek when worn down, even after straightening. I guess one positive of curly hair is that its very thick, so I am able to pile it all on my head and get lots of volume going on, which you guys seem to love!'s outfit was based around a new ring of mine. It's pretty obvious that aside from black, green is my favourite colour. This ring is from the 1920/30's and feaures a beautiful chrysoprase stone, with surrounding marcasite accents. I'm absolutely in love with it, the green is pretty mesmerizing in real life. Many thanks to Gina on Ruby Lane for giving me a wonderful ring (and service). I also have a cute new bag with an ornate silver frame. It's such a good size, really fills out, but the bag itself isn't ridiculously large (unlike the Lulu Guinness couture handbag it reminds me of).

Shoes (Pied a Terre), vintage bag, blazer (Topshop), vintage skirt, vest (Warehouse)

I tried to get a good shot of my earrings, but they kept swinging about damn them! This is the best I could do
