Jumper: vintage//Blouse: vintage//Necklace: Forever 21

I'm back from France after spending an enjoyable (nearly) week there, although we didn't really do much.. there was a curry night with the neighbours, and a Vodka sampling night which didn't end well, and of course a trip to Emmaus (thrift warehouse), where we didn't have much time to look around but I still managed to find four blouses and a mohair cardi for all of €10- I love these sorts of places where everything is priced the same (all blouses were €2, all dresses €3 etc.) My mum found some Doc Martens for €3 and I'm pretty jealous even though they're not really my style (that was her excuse anyway, as she already has two pairs..).
This is one of my favourite blouses- love the pointy collar, and weird amorous swans. And there couldn't be a post about France without featuring the kitties!

  6. That collar is so cute! It's like a subtle reminder of Miu Miu's lovely collection based on cats, collars and quirky prints. *sigh* You always dress so quaintly ♥
    I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and I'm glad you enjoyed your time in France. The scenery is (as always) quite beautiful.
