Gatsby







Out of Print sweater / Topshop collared top / Zara coat / American Apparel skirt / Office boots / Prada bag

Literature was one of my favourite subjects in high school and I remember writing many essays on The Great Gatsby and really enjoying studying the novel. A new film remake will come out this year and I must say I'm really looking forward to it and seeing how it compares to the 1974 version. It was a pretty cold day so as usual I layered a collared top underneath this fleece sweater and paired it with a velvet skirt (I have these in a few colours as I find them to be super warm and also the heavier material means that they don't tend to blow up in the wind). My hair's faded into this strange green colour as I've been too lazy to re-dye it because it's been so chilly (my excuse), coloured hair can seem like so much maintenance sometimes but I'm not too fussed about it to be honest, I'll get on it when I feel like it.

    1. I keep passing AA stores but I can't remember where I've seen them all, for sure there's one stand alone store on Oxford St, a section in Selfridges, and one in Westfield mall though. Haha I was so tempted to get a photo on the lion too but it was swarmed by kids.
