Hi, long time no see.
Sorry about that, but anyway have you been watching Girl Boss on Netflix? It’s a loose story telling of the rise of Nasty Gal and I love it. The clothes are heaven and it’s really a captivating story. In true Girl Boss ( Sophia) spirit, myself and a few of my gal pals from university went charity shop hopping. The first shop we stumbled upon was a British Red Cross and I sniffed out this gorgeous tan leather peacoat within the first few seconds. I flung it on and twirled in front of the mirror then twirled to the cash desk and it was all mine, for £5. £5!!
The photos of this look were taken in the water fountains at Southampton’s new Watermark. I was getting splatted by all the water, hence the face pulling.
I controversially style the peacoat with black and I love the look. My trusted black boots that make my legs look miles long and my most precious mini dress. (It’s the dress I met my boy friend in and I wear it every anniversary) To tie in the tan a little more I dug out my ‘seen better days’ Dooney and Bourke bumble bee barrel bag. I think it got water damaged years ago so the black leather has gone grey but it’s mine and I could never replace it. To finish (the cherry on top) are my fan earrings, given to me by a family friend.

Thanks for reading, see you soon
Another instalment of what I’ve been up to in the world of blogging before I created thecurlyahairedgirl.org.uk. If you’re new you may not know this but I’ve been blogging since I was 15 and have had some great opportunities come my way, I thought I’d share them with you.
In 2012 I was fortunate enough to attend Clothes Show live as part of their press team, which was amazing. This was the first time I had ever been to anything like this and was blown away by everything. I saw work shops, celebrity brands, cat walks music, stands and so much more. I found some great brands that I still love today.
I was fascinated by the university catwalks more then the huge show. Being able to see new and emerging designers showcase their ideas was a true source of inspiration, and exciting to see.
Can you believe that I still have the dress I wore that day? I wore it on my birthday here.

I celebrated my 22nd birthday with my lovely sister and great friend Hangqing, by going to Wagamama, it’s definitely one of my favourite places to eat. I try and order something different every time.
It’s clear that the ramen went to our heads! We headed off to Sprinkles for an ice cream coma, but no one should ever have to see those photos.
