The AC/AG jeans dress

Okay, okay. So this isn't THE AC/AG jeans dress, but how do you expect a poor student such as myself to be able to afford the original? Since the collection was launched, I have been lusting after so many of the pieces from it, as well as the high street versions. I especially loved the button up denim shirt dress, and tried on the Miss Selfridge version in York in January. However, I was unsure of which size to get so decided to go back to my local store with someone to help me, but they didn't stock it near me anywhere! Eventually, I snapped this one up on Depop and was close to tears when the seller said she could do it for £15 including postage....

Initially, I was planning on taking these photos outside but my damn hat kept blowing away! After last year, when this same hat blew away under a moving car, I have been very afraid of wearing floppy hats in blustery weather. Trying to find a pretty background indoors resulted in me having to move my desk and everything on it, to be able to take photos of myself in front of my gallery wall. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter then you may have noticed the absence of my fringe..... I was going to grow it out until I got serious hair envy over Samantha Maria and now I can't decide whether or not to keep it! I have had my faux fur coat for nearly a year, but haven't managed to shoot photos of it yet! It was a Christmas present from my Aunt and Uncle, although I got it in February as we rarely see them. I had wanted a faux fur coat for ages, and looked for one in the Christmas sales, but they had all sold out in my size. Mine makes me feel very Kate Moss and is so warm, for when the weather is cold and miserable. It also looks so stylish with jeans and an oversized jumper, or dressed up for the evening with a dress or skirt!

I adore my leopard print beret. I have had it for a few years but have recently rediscovered it and had forgotten how much I love wearing it! I get really cold ears around this time of year, so hats are definitely essential to me. The trend of big, oversized scarves is also amazing. I got mine from H&M in September, and loved the softness and pattern of it. However, I only realized once I got home that it has 'Kyoto' on it in huge letters, oops. I don't think this is noticeable when it is worn, and I love how large it is- it really keeps you snuggly and warm in the cold weather! The Topshop coat is my new A/W coat for this year, and it I love the simplistic shape of it and the contrasting colour detailing under the collar and cuffs. It feels very Alexa Chung and Parisian, and is really good quality. Soon, however, I think I may have to break out my faux fur jacket permanently as it is getting rather chilly in the North East of England!
