I HAVE MY OWN T-SHIRT

I only went and designed my own t-shirt didn't I! I had an exciting day of designing down at the Brand Attic HQ last month along with a bunch of other lovely bloggers and have been eagerly waiting for it to be put into production ever since and, well, here it is! I went for a very simple design because, you know me, I'm a simple guy. After toying with the idea of doing a 'bears, beets, battlestar galactica' design, I ended up going for a very simple bison head in black and white (AKA my favourite 'colours'). It wasn't all smooth sailing though, I haven't drawn in years and was out of practise, so my poor bison's nose originally ended up looking very much like a vagina. The trials and tribulations of being a designer, eh.

Anyway, the BA team sassed it all up for me and put it together and it is now live and for sale over on the site! It's price at £18 which, although I am biased (bisoned?), I genuinely think is really well priced. It's great quality, very soft and hangs nicely, and, well, the design is absolutely GREAT. Just kidding about the last part. I tied mine up because I have a mild crop top obsession, but it's actually quite long, so I've taken a photo below to show you the real length. The sleeves sit just kind of mid-upper arm too, I rolled mine up because that's how I... roll.

Anyway, I very much hope you like it? Am I excited to have my own t-shirt in production...?

LOOK THREE
The Little Magpie Topshop Trousers

Helloooo! Welcome to Part II of my Toppers new term post. If you missed the first one explaining what I'm up to then, fret not, you can find it here. Today's post features, as promised, looks three and four. The Trouser Looks. The first one is pretty colourful for me, I'm not going to lie, but something about these pink trousers spoke to my heart. Initially I bought them in the cerise pink colour I've linked above but then wimped out and settled for this little salmon pair as a compromise. The blouse I absolutely love; the fit's perfect and it's the kind of thing I've been after that I can  chuck on with skinny jeans on a lazy day (remember that one as term goes on, students). Plus, we all saw from my last post how much I love a bit of leopard print. And what else do we spy sneaking its way in again? That's right, the embellished bag! The cheeky little monkey.

LOOK FOUR

For my second outfit i'm back in my safe place: high waisted trousers and a dark palette. I wish I could show you just how good the little tank is because it's just the best quality ever. It's in a really warm wool-y material, hangs very well and sits at a pretty bargainous £32 (-£3.20 if you take into account student discount - that's important). I've tied it under in a couple as I very much enjoy a slightly cropped top with high waisted trousers. Plus I'm a huge harlot. And hello bag again, well done on making it into all four outfits.

So, the best thing about all these outfits I've picked (1-4) is that they're interchangeable. The three tops can be mixed and matched with any of the bottoms (the leopard print shirt with yesterday's leopard print shirt is particularly good, as is the cream ruffle blouse with the khaki trousers) so you've got your own little student capsule wardrobe, huzzah! 

I hope you liked these posts, let me know what your wee favie of the four outfits was! I shall leave you with my favourite photo of the set...

New Term x Topshop

LOOK 1 The Little Magpie Topshop New Term Collection

So, today's post is in celebration of everything new term. Believe me, I was in my absolute element putting it together; these are all thing I would have worn as a student meself (at the beginning of term when I still cared about what I looked like - towards the end I was more bean-stained tops and jeans I picked off the floor). The best part is, EVERY SINGLE THING IM WEARING IS UNDER £50. Ok, no, I'm lying.. The jacket is £55. But when you take into account the fact that students get 10% off all year round then it almost counts. Do you see why I had no money in uni? I've put together four outfits and I've tried to pick things that mix and match easily, because as a student the last thing you want is to be blowing all your dolla on something you'll never wear again.

Shop Look One

Today's post focuses on two of the four outfits, or the animal outfits as I like to call them. So. Much. Leopard. Print. The first one features my favourite dress I've come across in a long time; the ruffles, the print, the length, the sleeves. Just beautiful. I've styled it for A/W, but if you're lucky enough to go to school or uni somewhere where it's still sunny then it looks lovely with some bare leggles and a wee pair of pumps or ankle boots. I also teamed it with this little winner of a bag, which I'd definitely have thought what was designer if, you know, I hadn't bought it in Topshop. Obviously for uni a big rucksack or tote is best, but this one's good for days when you don't have big books to lug around (or when you want to feel extra sassy and take a baby bag for purse, make-up etc as well as your rucksack).

The second outfit is leopardy again, featuring this little midi-mini skirt (which also comes in a paler leopard print) and has a big beautiful buckle on, which I popped on with THE BEST SHIRT EVER. Sorry, I didn't mean to shout there. It's got the ruffles, which you know I love, but it's quite tailored in the sleeves and body so doesn't leave you looking like Shakespeare reincarnated. I popped it with this little bag again (oh, you'll be seeing a lot more of that) and this little leather look-biker, which comes complete with burgundy fur collar. Wonderful innit? The jacket's great too if you're a school-y, because the only freedom you really get with the uniform is outerwear isn't it? So you can make a statement to let people know that you are, in fact, a sassy bitch.

And there we have it, two looks for the price of one! Stay tuned tomorrow for looks three and four!
