It's my birthday tomorrow! Gaaaaah, I've been dreading it all week and suddenly I'm soo excited! "It's the big 1-8 mate!"
Onto other news... I've been oh so very good and I haven't been clothes shopping in over a month so I've saved up all my pennies to go on a 'lil old spree in topshop (I'm helplessly addicted to that place - I swear if I was rich I'd have a mini topshop store in my closet)...
These are my current "topshop must-haves" - I've already acquired the first two which I'm super pleased about. I went to go visit the baseball jacket 4 times before the petite version came out but I'm soo glad I waited because the petite jacket fits soo much better. Oh and the dress is a little masterpiece... the sequin flowers around the neckline reminded me of the current season Miu Miu dress embellishments (but obviously not reaching that same level of perfection) so I do believe after a few wears the sequins will starts to disperse and disappear but I don't really mind because the dress itself is still undoubtedly fabulous. It's a shift style with a sheer top layer, which makes an amazing bell shape when I spin really fast. I feel just a little magical when I wear it, so it's the perfect thing to wear to my birthday meal tomorrow night.
The cream cable knit jumper is oh-so cosy, but for £48 I think it's pretty steep so I'm gona hunt for a vintage one instead *fingers crossed*. The velvet leggings are really nice too, but I could only find the red version in store so I'm gona have to go check again soon.
I'm sure you all wana hear about my shopoholic-ism... I swear I could re adapt Alice in Wonderland and call it 'Spence in Spendsville' - a less successful, heavily clothes related ripoff of the classic tale, ivolving; adventure (wandering through new realms of fashion), love (of the clothes of course... and the attractive Topman shop assistant ;) and not over looking the endless series of death defying stunts (such as squeezing into a dress two sizes too small for me and bargaining an extra 10% off from the scary lady behind the till).
Personally I think it could be a best seller... maybe?

This is what I wore today; sorry for the bad quality but due to the weather (and general laziness) I couldn't get any better shots. And yeah you guessed it, I'm in a changing room, but it was a spur of the moment idea and I do honestly already own the clothes I'm wearing, aha.
The bowler hat (folder over to look like a 20's style cloche hat) is from H&M, stripey cardigan from Topshop, lace crop top from New Look, and the skirt was thrifted.
Arghhh, I still can't believe I'm turning eighteen tomorrow! :O
(p.s. you're utterly amazing is you read all that - like the Snoopy to my Charlie Brown ;) x x x
