Lookbook | Chictopia
Accessories/top/shoes: Primark | Trousers: ASOS

The top and hat are both recent purchases of mine and altogether cost £5.50. A bargain some might say. I’ve never worn hats, never thought I had the face* for it but I’m pretty happy with this one, but I can’t deny the fact I’m still lusting (somewhat obsessively) over a 1970s inspired floppy hat! Paying £20+ is however not even an option so I’ll keep on wishing about having the perfect 70s wardrobe.

I went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter the other day and words can not describe how emotional it was. I mean at one point I wanted to sob uncontrollably and scream ‘’NOOOO THIS CANNOT BE IT’’ but alas, I resisted the urge and carried on trying not to have a breakdown in the middle of the cinema. Over the top? Yes. But Harry Potter has been in my life since I was 11, it’s hard to say goodbye to an old friend. I could go on about how much it missed out, how it didn’t do the book justice etc but I’m too sad at the fact it’s all over. It was visually beautiful though, the production team deserves every penny this film makes. I'm going a little Tumblr crazy with HP reblogs, and i've just been balling my eyes out at video i've just posted. Honestly, i'm a mess.

Now that we have the Internet I can’t help but want to spend money, I don’t know what it is but I just want everything right now, which is a horrendous thing to do considering I don’t have a job and I’m ridiculously skint. I’m on the hunt for a graduation outfit though (I’ve allowed myself that one spend) and I think I’ve decided to keep it plain with a simple black dress. Now I’ve got to find the perfect* one, which will probably a mission in itself. So far I’ve found this little number but I think for the time being I’ll keep on looking. The inner chav in me has wanted to be released ever since I saw these blingtastic shoes. I can’t even explain how much I want them. Ok I can, A LOT!

Looks like you all love a good sale considering you’ve been snapping up the last of my shop items. I would have liked to have sent all your goodies today but the envelopes I ordered haven’t arrived yet! I under estimated just how much you would want. For those who are still after a bargain, you can still get 50% off with the code ‘MUSTGO’ (not available for add space though!) I’ve found some absolute beauties I want to re stock with, but it’s going to break the bank at over £120! Now I’ve got to flip a coin with the whole ‘Do i? Don’t i?!’ in mind.

For all you beauty lovers out there, I’ve found an amazing new website (well, new to me) and it’s based in the UK which is amazing because you can buy all the Coastal Scents palettes (the one I have in my giveaway) of course they’re under a different name but they’re the same and so much cheaper, like a crazy amount cheaper.

So now I’m waiting to the rain to stop pouring so I can walk to the shop and pick up some goodies for this afternoons showing of HP1 and then behind the magic. Told you, I’m not ready to let go yet.



  1. I love your top.
    I went to see Harry Potter yesterday and totally agree about how beautiful it was, I really want to see it again to appreciate it more.
