Faux Mongolian Coat/Jumper/Shoes- Urban Outfitters, Leather trousers- Topshop & DIY, Rucksack- ASOS 




First of all, can you believe what happened to my shoe?! I only bought them last week from Urban Outfitters for £10 in the sale and this was the second time I wore them and they decided to break whilst at Uni today which was slightly embarassing. No wonder they were so damn cheap.

I recently saw some leather trousers on Wasteland with slits in the knees which I really wanted but to save the money thought I could customise some I already have by cutting them myself. All I did was turn them inside out, put them on and drew with white pencil where I wanted the slits then cut them out whilst inside out and voilá! 

Sooo happy to tell you all that I have an internship ready for April at LOOK magazine for four weeks which I am extremely excited for :) Just hunting for another one for the rest of the work placement period which is another four weeks!

  11. I love the coat! I've heard so many mixed reviews about Urban Outfitters, it doesn't matter how much you paid for them, even at £10 they should last more than two wears! You should take them back!

  13. Buy Shoe Glue (I think it's online, probably on Amazon) and fill in the sole and let it dry overnight. Your gorgeous shoes will be back in business in no time.
