Move over, Alexa

My style gets pretty confused when I come home. The neon wardrobe got left behind in London, so I'm back in my wardrobe of old, that of peter pan collars and a colour palette that doesn't ever veer far from black and navy hues. I've even gone as far as to cosplay Alexa Chung, the most beautiful woman in the world and the person I desperately emulated for most of my teenage years, with a uniform of brogues, poorly applied eyeliner (I don't have a steady hand) and granny chic jumpers and dresses. Also, let's not forget my rather shoddy fake Alexa Mulberry! Things have changed a little since then, namely my pink hair, but I'm still giving it a bloody good shot here, because my love for Alexa will never die. These snaps were kindly taken by Emily (with some help from my glamorous personal assistant Bekky).  photo barbour4_zpsf4ed2aff.jpg

This Barbour was 10p. TEN ENGLISH PENCE. I can't take the credit for finding it, as my mum is the undisputed expert of finding a bargain and would wrestle your nan to the ground or raid anybody's bin in search of a thrifty treasure. I've always wanted one, but the cheapest I could ever find them sold for in London was about £50, so this is probably the find of the CENTURY.  It fits like a charm and is super cosy. Alongside it I'm wearing a dress that I'm pretty sure my sister wore years ago for a production of Peter Pan, and that still manages to look flattering on me despite overdoing it on the chocolate this year. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to shoot some pheasants and possibly some poor people.

  8. Obsessed with your hair! I'm hoping to do something cool with mine some time before winter break ends, but time is a'tickin'! And woww, can your mom teach us her ways? My parents bought be three Barbour coats straight from the store before this school year started. It's my freshman year of college, so they needed to send their first college-bound kid off with anything she might need for any situation :P (including three Barbour coats in different weights for the different degrees of weather I guess haha) It was pricey, but Barbour is a pretty reliable brand, so I'm telling myself that it was a good investment! Can't beat a 10p Barbour coat though... Go you!! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
