OUTFIT: Material Fusion


If you've ever had the (mis)fortune of visiting the Arndale Centre in Manchester, you may or may not know that tucked away at the back there's actually a market. I have to say that I tend to avoid it wherever possible, and that's no slight on the stalls because there's a lot of quality stuff at decent prices. No no, I avoid it because of the smell.

The architect/designer/planner for the Arndale truly deserves a slap to the face with a wet fish, but not just any fish, it should be one from the Arndale Market. That's right, just behind the little food court section there's a massive fishmonger's! And that loveable fishy 'aroma' travels all throughout the market.

On one particular day, boredom got the better of me. I took one last gasp of beautiful, fresh, city-centre air(!) and headed in. Whilst there I came across a gorgeous cropped black lace studded jacket priced at a reasonable £25. But as everyone else seemed to be avoiding the smell of dead fish that day, I was the only person at the stall and the shop assistant was incredibly insistent that I buy it. So much so, I managed to get my hands on it for just £15!

It definitely reminds me of something I'd expect to see in much classier, slightly less whiffier establishment like Zara. Of course, I can feel my debit card struggling to break free from my bag whenever I enter places like Zara, but it seemed perfectly happy to be chip & pinned at this stall.

So anyway, after I washed it (adding in extra Lenor!) I paired it with this champagne metallic vest that I don't recall having ever worn. I think it may have been from Topshop's Autumn/Winter range in 2011 but don't quote me on that! Either way, it was definitely time to give it an airing, coupled with my trusty black velvet shorts that I will not be falling out of love with anytime soon!

 I think this might be the first time I've blogged with my hair in a top-knot, I've been experimenting quite a bit with the hair recently to try and mix it up a bit. I really love having my hair done 'Up' at the moment and I'm constantly YouTubing tutorials for new ideas. It's almost fascinating the way the turquoise ends up in big flashes dissecting the black.

 I don't think you can ever really beat natural, flowing locks but sometimes it just looks so damn sexy when it's done up, right?
