Asos Swing Coat (similar here)
70's Vintage Dress (similar here)
Zara Strappy shoes (similar here)
Sportgirl suede belt (similar here)
MAC 'girl about town' lipstick


Hi all! How are we bloggers and readers? Hope all is well and fine. Thank you for cheering me up from the last post, I certainly needed it, as I was having a bad few days recently.
So, as some of you know, I've been unemployed for a few weeks now, having quit my fashion job in buying of 2 years, because of horrible working conditions, being underpayed, and being over-worked. I was also promised many things to me, but after a year of waiting for it to happen, it never happened. So I left.

But now, I'm sort of stuck in this unemployed routine, because I seem to not be having any luck lately, and I was lined up to work casually at a food festival for 2 weeks, but because of bad management, the manager "forgot" to put me on the roster! But anyways.... my boyfriend is sweet to me and took me out to the city today to have lunch, shop, browse book-shops and eat macaroons. He then took my photos :)
And be-hold, I checked my email, now I have a couple of interviews lined up for next week! Wish me luck!!

So, today I wore my new Asos green coat, on top of my old vintage dress, combining old with the new. A good combination, as I added my personal touches - a belt, shoes and bright lipstick. Sometimes I wonder who owned the dress before me, and how the lady wore it before me. She must have been heart-broken to let this dress go!

Anyhoo, there is now 2 days left in my give-away! Remember to enter! Click the watch in the right-hand corner!  
And don't forget, three lucky blog winners from the give-away competition will also be featured in one of my future blog posts, with me telling the world how fantastic their blogs are :)
Enter now!!

xx Natalie

    I love how you put the dress together. The two greens really compliment each other. I also love your bright lipstick...so basically what I'm saying is I love everything about the outfit hahaha.
