What I wore today: RETROSUPERFUTURE Lucia sunglasses

Sunglasses: RETROSUPERFUTURE // Vest: Primark // Skirt: Thrifted // Sandals: Topshop

My skirt is in desperate need of an iron but, as I had only just returned from my holiday, I wasn't too fussed and was far too keen to show off my new(ish) RETROSUPERFUTURE Lucia sunglasses! I say 'newish' because I actually bought them prior to leaving for Malaysia but actually never wore them once while away, they just felt too new and precious and I was terrified of leaving them on a bench somewhere while visually preoccupied with more exciting things, (as Jian Wei did with his beloved Wayfarers in Singapore.) So, here is their first official outing: wandering around the garden searching for signs of vegetable life amongst the slugs and brambles.

I bought the sunglasses after much deliberation and eventually obtained them from the eyewear suite in Liberty. The frames are an unusual blend of tortoiseshell and mother-of-pearl and are just so pretty. I'm so happy they are mine especially as I will have to be extremely thrifty for the rest of the summer whilst I hunt for a job in London.

I also wanted to show you my rucksack, it was a graduation gift from Jian Wei's mum and sister Maisy and it has such an adorable equestrian print on it. I love it and it is so practical for when you need your hands free: rummaging around charity shops for example.

The skirt was one of the last pieces I thrifted in Manchester and I scored it for a mere £2 in The Dead Shop aka Mr Ryan's World Famous Second Hand Shop on Oldham Street. It's real wool and a gorgeous colour though a bit of a squeeze on the waist and I managed to tear it whilst making my bed. I shall most likely be repairing it and adding it to the shop once I have all my stock in one location and am able to reopen its virtual doors. On the subject of skirts, I had rather good luck in the charity shops this morning and found the perfect high-waisted black leather skirt for £4.99. Unfortunately it's about an inch too tight on the waist and I can barely breath in it, let alone walk so she will also be making her way - along with a fuscia pink leather crop top - into the shop asap.

It's strange to be back 'home' in London, especially as the weather is so unnaturally glorious here at the moment but I'm looking forward to being in one location for a few weeks and really 'getting on' with the house. There is so much to do and I really don't know where to begin but the wardrobe seems a sensible place to start. I'm looking forward to blogging regularly and am very excited about the four rolls of film I have waiting to be developed from my adventures in Asia!

Home sweet home.
