Sometimes I wonder if I even have a style or if I just dress based on my mood. I'm not even sure how much I like this outfit anymore, but it's always fun experimenting, right? The leather-look backpack is a recent purchase, along with the tights and sparkly black nail polish (all from topshop). I haven't had a backpack for absolutely ages, and now I remember why - it's near impossible finding things at short notice and I'm always on edge that I'm an easy target for passing pickpockets. There's also the bizarre flashback I get from simply hearing the word 'backpack' - in my first year of secondary school I was known for sporting a giant backpack that made me look like a teenage mutant ninja turtle - and as cool as that sounds, it wasn't. But backpacks do have their benefits or course; they hold a surprising amount of stuff and they come with nifty little zip pockets (which come in so handy, especially when they don't work -_-) But the thing I really like about this backpack is the crackled leatherette texture; I find it gives off a slightly aged / distressed edge that I can't help but love. I know it's probably not to every one's taste but my mind's reeling now with all sorts of quirky styling ideas...
