Studded Jumper and Animal Print Skirt


Summer is officially over and the cold weather has already made an appearance so it's time to get out your A/W wardrobe. Don't know if you've noticed but everything is studded this season including this jumper I bought from Warehouse (students get 20% off at the moment). This jumper is so versatile, you can wear it with pretty much anything. I would put it with wet look / leather leggings but I just don't own that sort of body to pull it off! Instead I have opted for an animal print skirt with black tights. I used to be a hater of animal print, like a major hater. It just reminded me of a tacky Cruella De Vill but now it's steadily growing on me. Before you know it I'll be wearing zebra print trousers......I really hope this doesn't happen.

As if the studs weren't 'bling' enough I decided to wear a gold necklace just to give it a hint of colour. 

Hope you are all planning you're A/W wardrobes!!

Yours always,

It's a long way to Tipperary.....

Hey Y'all!

I'm so sorry that it's been so long since my last post, there is no excuse! But (here comes the "excuse") I have been a very busy girl working and helping my family organise my cousin's 21st birthday party. 

She had a lovely 1940/1950s theme tea party in her garden where all her family and friends sat down to two seatings of plenty of tea, cake and sandwiches. My auntie hired a lovely woman to do our hair in the 1940s style (I believe she has a shop in Cirencester called SheuniqueVintage, she also has a Facebook page) with all the curls and quiffs! I'm awful at doing my hair so I was very excited for a professional to do it!
As she did our hair out in the sun we listened to Glenn Miller and drank Pimms to get into the spirit. The first set of guests arrived and the champagne was popped open as they took their seats for a very fun and very civilised (if I do say so myself) tea party. After they finished their tea my great auntie (Jacqueline "Jackie" Sansum, she is an opera singer) sang "Scarlet Ribbons" to a very happy crowd. You must look up the song on the internet it's one of my favourites that she sings. 

As for the fashion, well everyone went all out and really got stuck into the theme! Plenty of florals, wrap dresses, peplum dresses, red lips and head wraps. I went for a wrap dress and vintage cream gloves which was bought as a present from a 1940s event. Even my Dad got stuck in and dressed as Renee from "Allo Allo" (if you don't know this TV show, shame on you!) ! I have realised that my family sound completely bonkers but isn't everyones'! 

As the sun went down the champagne carried on flowing and Glenn Miller continued to blast out of the speakers to accompany the happy and slightly drunken dancers. It was definitely a party to remember. 

Yours always,

Ps. I thought I would stick with the theme and show the photos in black and white but some just simply looked better in their natural colours.There are also more photos on Twitter @TheOnlyMissP

So pleased with my hair!

All clothing is either vintage or old I'm afraid !

Uni Survival Tips - Fresherrrrrrrrrr!!

Hey Y'all ! 

Considering this is Results Day and you are all hopefully proud and happy (if you're not its not the end of the world and there is always another way around it) being a fresher survivor I thought I would do a university  for all you new freshers !!!

- Be prepared to be very tired for the first couple of weeks, you're body will be pushed to the limits with all the parties that you'll be going to!
- Everyone is scared just like you, so don't be afraid to get talking to each other. Talk to everyone!
-Get one of your flat mates and go round your halls and knock on EVERYONE'S door. Be friendly and invite people to go out :)
-Bring a board game !! You will bond over how silly you look on a twister board hahaha
-If your flatmates aren't your cuppa tea, go to another flat and chill out there. It may be awkward at first but it'll soon get comfortable.
-If you have friends from home going to the same uni try not to hang out too much at first you need to socialise with new people in order to feel fully at home.
-On your first day stay in the kitchen or prop your door open, try not to hide away.
-Pace your money! You won't have you're loan yet, you only get it when you enroll into University.
- Have fancy dress clothes, you'll be wearing them more than you're actual going out clothes- Primark will be your best friend!
- Girls, speaking from experience don't wear massive heels in freshers week , you will regret it!!
- Try not to see or visit you're love ones for at least 2-3 weeks. It'll be harder to say goodbye the second time so you need time to fully realise that you live away from them.
-Join in every drinking game possible (if you drink)!! Alcohol brings people together ;)
-Get Berocca!! You will be tired under the weather and just plain hungover! I remember waking up on the Friday morning of Freshers Week, hungover , sore head and the reddest eyes you have ever seen. Wasn't my most beautiful moment.....
-And finally literally JUST HAVE FUN, throw yourself into Uni wholeheartedly, if you don't enjoy it straight away trust me you will love it soon enough. When Christmas comes along you won't want to come home!!

Congratulations once again to everyone!!

Yours always,

Olympics 2012 Special!

Hey Y'all!

I know I did a post not that long ago but I had to share with you my experience of going to the London Olympics! 

I had the privilege of attending the Canoe and Kayak Sprint Finals at Eton Dorney with my lovely sister to support our amazing athletes (I think you'll agree with that statement). The atmosphere was electric and all the gamemakers were extremely friendly and still managed to have sense of humour even when it was raining and early in the morning. The only bad bit about the day was that I had to get up at 430am (ouch, I know) but it was still worth it to be a part of something that will probably not happen again in my lifetime. 
Team GB may not have won any medals this morning but they should be proud none the less! 

Hope you are enjoying the last week of the games and make sure you tell me what you've been watching and  what you think of Team GB, either on here or on Twitter - @TheOnlyMissP !

Yours always,

Miss P x

Holiday Wear

Hey Y'all!!

I'm back from my hols and finally have access to my beloved laptop so I can do a much overdue blog post! I thought I would just keep it simple and show you what I wore in Lanzarote. 
Everything on holiday should be simple so I kept my outfits pretty standard, focusing on cut instead of print. However I did have one dress with a cool print (first photo) which was really cute and had a really cool cut out back (I'm afraid I didn't get a picture).  
My favorite piece of clothing that I took was my statement necklaces. One you have already seen from my Neon post and two new ones. They make everything look so much better and just little bit more classy. I recommend everyone invest in one especially if you are going on holiday!
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer as much as I have and, of course, enjoying the Olympics!!
Your's always,

Miss P x
