Technicolour Bat Girl

Another post room. I was actually planning to start photographing (and filming ooo) something a little more exciting for my blog. I'm trying to make you excited here, really I am. But then I was cursed by the common cold which has not relieved it's grip on me yet, so apart from trips to and from university I've been in virtual hibernation, or in today's speak, tucked up under a duvet looking very non style blogger, watching BBC Iplayer. But something will be coming soon and fingers crossed that it won't be mediocre, or sound better in my head.

Today's outfit is very Rookie.If you don't know what that it, it is a teenage online magazine with imagery consisting of Bats, Pastels and Flowercrowns. I absolutely love Rookie for its honest look at teenage subjects such as Virginity and menstruation, as well as its wonderful tutorials on how to look like everyone from Clara Bow to Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice. I cringe now when I think back to the teenage magazines I read when I was actually a urm...teenager. Funnily enough my awful attempts at coquettish staring and syncing up of our school timetables as suggested by my favourite publications (I kid you not) never did help me date my 'crush.'

This Bat Jumper from Sheinside is a direct Dupe of the JW Anderson for Topshop one adorned by Alexa Chung and everyone who had a mere £70 to hand. Now it's going for hundreds of Ebay, but this was just £15 (with discount)!

These are my newest buy. I decided to splurge my birthday money on a pair of Dr Martens, as I've always wanted them. After looking through the website I decided that the boots weren't for me, and that the shoe style would probably be more sutiable for day to day wear. I fell in love with the recent Liberty collection that they did, but at £120 it was completely outside my typical budget. I found these, however, on Coggles, for just over £50. I can imagine wearing them with my more standard black Peter Pan Collar dresses to jazz them up a bit. They're also going to be really great for Spring.

Thanks for reading! Belphoebe x
