It's no secret that I absolutely love online vintage store, ETTE. They're pretty bloody fantastic.

ETTE source the most desirable psychedelic garms and now they've also started sewing together an array of gorgeously garish bell bottoms to wet anyone's 70's appetite. Also, the gals behind the brand are some of the loveliest ladies in the land (freestyle rhyming, no biggy!). Their bell bottoms collection is pretty affordable, ranging from only £28-38. I just had to treat myself to this golden paisley sensational pair of flares. They have me feeling a little like Jimi Hendrix, but hey... that's not exactly a bad thing!

If you're not a fan of print clashing and I've made you vomit in your mouth a little bit with this paisley/glitter/velvet floral/tapestry concoction then I apologise tough shit. I certainly appreciate a multiple pattern indulgence from time to time, even if it breaks a few classic styling rules.

Ever since London Fashion Week where I spotted Lucia wearing these dungaree flares from Miss Selfridge I have not been able to stop thinking about them. Seriously. I mean they feed my hunger for two man-replling substances all at once: flares and overalls.

Also, please excuse the magical appearing fedora in a couple of these photos. I decided to actually expose my scalp to the world for once, but my fedora just kept creeping back in. The masses are just not ready to see the top of my head just yet. It's gotten to the point now where people tell me I look 'weird' without a hat.

I have to thank the bloody marvellous Chelsea for shooting these photos for me. I could not contain my excitement when I spotted this car up this cobbled road. I have never been so overly enthusiastic over a heap of metal in my entire life. If I could drive (I'm yet to still even apply for a provisional licence at 24 years old - whoops!), this would be the car of my dreams.

One day, one day...

O U T F I T | Suede Sister

Jacket: Vintage via Charity Shop // Jumper*: c/o Sugarhill Boutique //
Hat: ASOS // Shirt (underneath): ASOS //
Skirt: Marc Jacobs // Boots: New Look

Where’s all mah suede sistas, lemme hear ya’ll flow sistas
Hey sista, go sista, suede sista, flow sista
Hey sista, go sista, suede sista, go sista...

Yes, I did just start this blog post with altered Lady Marmalade lyrics. I don't know whether to apologise or take a big ol' bow. You decide.

So, I spent my Saturday afternoon in a rather interesting and unconventional way. Amba Hotels hosted a pre-Mother's Day bath bomb & soap making workshop for a group of devilish bloggers that included myself. Unfortunately, I can't quite say I'm a natural in the artistry of bath bomb creation as you can see from my final result here *cringe*. I think I'll stick to purchasing my bath bomb needs from Lush rather than wreaking havoc at home. Despite my atrocious attempt and complete failure, it was still a pretty good afternoon.  After all there were burgers, cake and beer on offer which equals a very happy Leigh indeed!

There's no way you could NOT be happy in this fun ice lolly knit jumper from Sugarhill Boutique. I mean having a FAB lolly and it's pals splashed across your breasts may just be the answer to curing just about any type of blues you may incur. P.M.S.? ICE LOLLY BOOBS. Boyfriend dumped you? ICE LOLLY BOOBS. Stubbed ya toe? ICE LOLLY BOOBS. Someone's eaten your secret chocolate stash? ICE LOLLY BOOBS. On second thoughts, nothing can fix that latter problem.

I managed to nab myself this Marc Jacobs A-line skirt for a cheap and cheerful £15 from the holy grail itself, Depop, which is pretty bloody fantastic, don'tcha think? The 70's suede jacket was from a charity shop ofc, as my outfit always has to contain at least one chazza shop piece.
