Choked……

Choker: Made by ME!, Top: Topshop, Bracelets: Random, Belt: Vintage Skirt: Vintage, Boots: Vintage, Cardi: Mums

Just sporting my new choker! It looked cool with the top I already had on when I made it the other day so I wore it with it again today!! I know its weird me wearing a crop top in January but it was quite warm this morning. ‘The sun was shining, the weather was sweet.’ And I did have a cardi with me anyway so I can kind of justify it. The thing is I love the idea of wearing crop tops with high waisted things and to just have a teeny weeny bit of belly showing (no more than 1 or 2 cms) and once I get an idea in my head I have to wear it there and then I can not wait around for it to be a more suitable season……..

I love this skirt too I found it for £2 in Oxfam the other day along with lots of other treasures I have yet to reveal. It was actually ankle length but I cut it shortish! It was too stiff to be ankle length I think. Ankle lengths need to flow you know. I do already have a black pleated skirt but its about 700000 years old and has tiny holes and all sorts of other things wrong with it poor fella…….

  21. What I like about this outfit is how you've looped over the end of your belt. Might seem weird, but it's a tiny thing that makes the outfit 5X cooler.
