You can't choose what stays and what fades away

Okay, so I promised I'd stop going on about Florence a few posts back after my stalkerish praise of her performance at Leeds festival, but that doesn't stop me wearing a tee with her face on it does it?! 
It seemed like every bloomin' girl at the festival had one of these on, which normally would put me off buying but I figured the likelihood of walking past 50 girls wearing it on the high street in Leeds would be a lot less than it is when you're in a field full of people there with the sole purpose of seeing the lady on the t-shirt. 

top: bought at Leeds festival like a true groupie (I'm guessing they're on Flo's website though), dress (worn underneath) Topshop, boots: River Island, watch and necklace: Urban Outfitters

Also should probably mention my new specs to you since they're right there on my face... I've had to put up with being a specky four eyes since the age of three, and although I normally wear contacts quite merrily, something possessed me to rejoin the land of geek-chic and buy a pair of Wayfarers. Plus, they look pretty damn cool on other people. That said, I'm not fully decided on whether or not I think they suit me (or are even the right prescription... I'm experiencing a lot of optical express rubbish service related anger at the moment but that's a whole other story that I won't bore you with!). 

Oh and Pud Pud the owl doorstop says hello. 


  1. Aw I love Florence, such a brilliant talent!

  4. I was actually just thinking…did she always wear glasses?!?!!?lol. You really suit them, i don't meant to sound weird but i often wish i needed to wear glasses, i did once by a clear lensed pair, but since everyone i know round here knows i don't need glasses, i sold them lol.
