My Favourite Things

Cosmic T-shirt Dress - Your Eyes Lie
Antlers Pendant - Tatty Devine
Vans Authentics Chrome - Office

I am in love with this cosmic t shirt! I am a complete geek and fascinated by space & time, so this t shirt is perfect for someone like me! Next payday I'm going to treat myself to the dress. Your Eyes Lie do some amazing printed tees and stock some really unusual pieces of jewellery including a dinosaur necklace I'm rather desperate for! Tatty Devine is another company that stocks fantastic jewellery like the antlers pendant. We sell Tatty Devine at my work so everyday I look at that necklace, waiting for payday so I can finally treat myself! Tatty Devine also do a dinosaur necklace, and I am very fortunate to have the gold version of it. It contains over 50 perspex pieces to make a whole t rex skeleton and every time I wear it I get so many compliments. I can't recommend Tatty Devine enough with their quirky pieces! 
Finally the chrome Vans - yellow isn't the colour I would normally wear (it clashes with my hair!) but this shade such a nice warm colour. As I previously mentioned I am a massive Vans fan, authentics are the comfiest trainers in the world! They really accommodate for my wide feet! I have been desperate for this shade of authentics for months now but sadly I cannot find any in my size. My mum probably sees this as a good thing though as I own far too many pairs!

I hope everyone is having a nice week and looking forward to the weekend! Lots of shops are doing their mid-season sales so I'm going to look for some bargains!

Chilly Days

Quilted jacket - Vintage
Faux fur collar - ASOS
T-shirt dress - Lazy Oaf
Head scarf - Vintage
Chain necklace - Topshop
Trainers - Vans

As you can see in the last photo I have a very old worn out pair of tights on! The joys of having a floordrobe you can never find the new tights you've just bought!
I know it can be very boring to talk about the weather but I am so happy it's finally starting to cool down! I really don't like hot weather, I love it when it's cold and you can wear chunky cardigans, hoodies and a big warm coat. Winter is by far my favourite season because most important Christmas(!) and how cold it gets. I love it when it shows, when you can see your own breath, when you've walked home in the freezing temperatures and come into a warm house, then have a nice warm bath! I am already getting stupidly excited over Christmas, planning my Christmas outfits and looking out for more Christmas jumpers and cardigans! I still can't decide when is an acceptable date to start wearing my novelty Christmas items!
The jacket I'm wearing is a vintage one I found on ebay and love! It has a subtle leopard print trim and goes so well with the faux fur collar I've pinned on. I love customising my clothes and adding little extras to them! I've also added black lace laces to my Vans instant of having the standard plain black ones. My Lazy Oaf t-shirt dress is one of my favourite items, the print on it is amazing and it's easy to dress it up and down.
I hope everyone is enjoying the cool weather as much as me!

An Introduction

Hello everyone! My name is Victoria, or Dickie as my friends call me. The nickname is entirely innocent - my little sister could never pronounce my name when she was young and called me Dicktoria, and during a night of Facebook rape my name on it was changed to Dickie and the name was born! Since then everyone started calling me Dickie with variations including Dickface, Dickiedodo etc. I'm 21 (although I look about 12!) and have just moved back home to Bath after finishing my degree in Forensic Science. I am a complete geek when it comes to Maths and Science! At the moment I'm working in a lovely shop to keep me going whilst I decide what to do in life and I'm really enjoying not having to worry about revision or assignments!
I'm going to use this blog to post my outfits and show clothes that I customise. I really hope you enjoy it!
With the ever-changing weather I wore this today :)
Excuse the greasy hair I'd been at work all day running up and down stairs!

Grinning like a loon on the trampoline!

My beautiful Nikes!

Denim shirt - Renewal @ Urban Outfitters
Green jumper - Ebay
Camel shorts - Topshop
Lace trim socks - ASOS
Nike blazers - Office
Owl double pendant necklace - Vintage

I love my wolf jumper so much! It was one of those items that as soon as you see on ebay you know you have to have it! On ebay it was modelled with a shirt underneath so I used this idea to jazz it up. As you will soon notice I am a massive fan of trainers with my favourites being Nike blazers and Vans authentics. I used to work in Office where I took full advantage of the discount and now have a huge collection! My favourite trainers are my Liberty of London Nikes, they've done some stunning collaborations.
At the moment I am being conned by my 10 year old sister into paying her £3.50 a week to take my photos, so hopefully the quality of them will improve as she gets better with my camera! She insisted on taking pictures of me jumping on the trampoline which proved to be incredibly unflattering!
I hope you enjoyed the post!
