She Bop


“Hey I’ve been thinking of a new sensation,
I’m pickin’ up on good vibrations...”

This post’s TUNE comes from Cyndi Lauper.  Ah, the first album I ever owned, and how I loved it, and how I still do!  I suppose I’m quite lucky in the respect that my first ever album was such a cool one (or at least I think so anyway, but then again I’m biased), because it’s one of those things you will never forget.  Cyndi Lauper, the woman with the yellow hair, punk queen and all round talented singer is one of my personal favourites, all her songs are amazing but this one in particular is my favourite.

You can watch the video to this song here, and you can find Cyndi’s website here.

She bop, she bop...  






Top: HandM (old)
Skirt: Internacionale (£4.00, sale)
Belt: Primark (old)
Necklace:: Topshop (old)
Tights: Primark (£2.50)
Shoes: New Look (old)
Coat: Primark (£20.00, sale)
Scarf: Dorothy Perkins (old)
Satchel: Camden Market (old)

This is my granny chic look...

So remember my trousers that I had in a sale in Internacionale where it was buy one get one half price (No?  well I don't expect you to remember everything so you can have a look at that post here), well these were one of my other little bargain pick ups.  This skirt was just £4.00 in the end, what a bargain!

I love this look, it's very old lady inspired, gran would be proud!  Have you heard that Thrift Shop song?  If you haven't you shoul, you have indeed been missing out!  Well, I think I could definitely sing along to that in this outfit, although I want to replace it with my grandma's clothes, otherwise it just gets a bit odd.

I don't half talk a lot of sh*t aye...


On a totally different note, this weekend I met up with some old uni friends who I have not seen in years (literally).  It's strange how with some people you can not see each other for ages but then fall back into easy conversation straight away.  It was so good catching up with each other, and it's mad me realise I need to be a bit more proactive in meeting up with friends and also maybe in getting to know new people...

Cheerio,

  18. Hey!

    I found few spare minutes to look at your blog, as you advised me on my post and I have no regrets.
    I love your retro style, and songs you listen. I also love Cindy's songs, but maybe True Colors would be something that better suits my ears :)

    I have started a little giveaway on my blog, if you wish to participate? You can see details here:
