Okay, I’m not a rockstar. Although I did always expect I’d turn out to be one! But sadly, I’m just a girl in a (faux) leather jacket who sings emo tunes from 2005 like it’s current. Thank god this Vendula London Music Box Bag makes me look a bit cooler!
Recently I find I’m becoming more and more casual in my style. I still love set hair, petticoats and heels, but I really need to give my hair a rest at the moment. So when I’m not beating my hair into curled submission, I think the rest of my style follows.
I’ve also been suffering quite severely with my mental health the last two months, and curling my hair and making an effort can be difficult. Does anyone else find this when they’re dealing with a less-than-ideal mental state? Regardless of whether its depression, or exhaustion or just a bad day, it really knocks me out to the point that getting out of bed is hard enough.
Anyone have tips on dealing with it?
Anyway. It’s not exactly jeans-and-t-shirt casual, and will be overdressed for some people, but this is definitely my casual! Melody Casual, if you will, haha!
I’ve mentioned before how much I love this jacket, and it’s still the best £10 I’ve spent in Primark. A little punk rock, a little cutesy, and the perfect place to display all my pins! There’s a mix of cheap eBay finds, some pins picked up when travelling in China and Japan, and an amazing Game of Thrones one from Pin Game!
I also purchased a little group of cute and body-positive pins from Punky Pins back in September when I was at Autumn Fair. They serve as a great reminder to be looking after myself, which is something I’ve been finding hard to do lately.
Vendula London’s Music Box Grab Bag (and matching Coin Purse) is the perfect addition to my Shop Front Collection, and also the newly-branded Melody Casual! Mixing a record shop and punk elements with black and multicoloured glitter for a girly edge, it’s such an eye-catching design. It dresses up any outfit, but also looks at home in a less-flashy style outfit.
It’s a winner for me!
