Peter Pan

This week has been one of my busiest weeks in a really long time. So much stuff going on at work, and exciting things are happening! I have neglected my blog this week - but loved taking short breaks to read up on everyone's blogs. Hope that you're all having a great week! Exciting news : you know that YSL ring in my last post? Well, after weeks/months of drooling over this lovely peice, I have decided that I will no longer dream about it but make a way for it to be on my finger...which is why I started my YSL ring piggy bank! Money so far? $64.00...we have a way to go, but it will happen!!

Today I was inspired by none other than Peter Pan. I love what Peter Pan and Robin Hood wear, and I try to make my own version. So I imagine this is what Peter Pan would wear if he was female. True? True! And these tights are amaaazing...I just got them sent to me by the lovely shop We Love Colors - they spoil me too much! They have such amazing tights though - so if you have never heard of We Love Colors head over to their shop!

This is going to be a very short post but I hope that you are all doing wonderful. I have looked at my clogs for the past few days sitting on my floor just WAITING to be worn, so I promise I wont make you wait much longer to see them - tomorrow it will happen! Ta ta for now. x

  4. Ah yes, cotton on, thanks to you I have a lovely little piece of them in my closet.
    I wanted to respond to your comment and feel like I never did, you know the post where I was ranting about pants? Well, the ones I was wearing were the AA high waist skinny jeans with the ankle zipper. However, if you're a shorty like me, which I do believe you are, I had to chop of the bottom part where the zipper started and make them an ankle length. I found mine at Beacon's closet though so maybe they do come in different lengths?? I dunno. they do fit nicely though and are pretty darn soft. so yeah, there's your answer. sorry for the delay!

    I absolutely love welovecolors tights, don;t you find them super soft? and they're true opaque which is so hard to find!

  5. Thanks so much for that Mel!! Ah, good to know. I just ordered some high waisted ones from Urban Outfitters, but I have lusting over the AA ones. I want the yellow ones. Good thing for us shorties that we can just cut em off! And yes, I am in love with we love colors!! x

  9. Female Peter Pan? What a great inspiration! I think you completely nailed it. Green tights ought to be more mainstream. I love them on you. The brown shoes are perfect. :)

  20. Just stumbled on your blog - SO GLAD I DID. You look fantastic. I was thinking "Woah, it reminds me of Peter Pan."

    And, lo and behold, you say it was inspired by Peter Pan.

    By the way, SUPER jealous you can 1) rock green tights, 2) wear tights - weather's crazy hot here.
