Tie Dye in Edinburgh

I’m starting my masters in Edinburgh this September, and so I spent this weekend hunting for somewhere to live! I’m so excited to live in a city that I love, and looking at flats (and decorating them in my mind) is one of my favourite activities. Luckily the weather was pretty warm whilst we were there, so I got to break out my bare legs and a very summery crop top! This top actually belonged to me when I was around eleven. A lot of my clothes from year 6 and 7 still fit me, not because I’m small now but because I did all my growing at a very young age. I was a tall eleven year old! I cut the bottom half off this top, and ta-da, it became a new crop top! Who says hoarding clothes doesn’t have it’s benefits? I bought this kimono from Rokit in Brick Lane a while back. I think it used to be a bed coat, but it’s more fun as an outside coat. When wearing this at uni, one of my friends asked me with genuine puzzlement “why are you dressed up as a witch today?” because wearing a cape that billows in the wind is fun, that’s why!

I’m wearing one of the skirts that I made a couple of months ago. Although one of the easiest to make, it’s among my favourite things that I’ve made because it’s so easy to wear, but the pu leather is unusual at the same time. I can’t wait to go back up to Scotland, I’m hoping to be there for the Fringe festival. I went briefly in 2010 and it was a lot of fun!

Black And White And Prints All Over

I feel very much like a “blogger” in this outfit. I’m not sure why, I think it might be the floppy hat and heeled Chelsea boots combination. It’s not often that I dress in monochrome, but I think the two different prints make my outfit interesting enough! I actually bought these dungarees from Lavish Alice in the January sales, but they tore in a couple of places literally ten minutes after I put them on. They had sold out online, so I decided that I would fix them rather than returning them and I’ve only just got around to it! I love the leopard face print, I think it’s so cute! I’m also wearing pink lipstick to stop these outfits from being too grey 🙂

Can you see that there’s only a little bit of blonde left at the end of my hair? It’s taken me three years to grow out my bleached hair and it feels so much healthier, but I’m itching for a change! If I do my MSc this year then it might be my last chance to have rainbow hair before I have to look respectable and employable and such. I also don’t want to damage my hair again, after all these years of restraint, and I can’t afford to have it done professionally. Oh, life’s decision are hard!
