New in

Here are the three items of clothing I bought over winter break.


Navy silk shirt from Seed, which I scored for half off. I'd been looking for a navy or white silk button up for quite a while, and being on sale this was pretty affordable. I don't usually look into Seed, everything is a bit too grown up and pricey for me, so it was lucky I did! I haven't worn it out yet because it's too pretty to wear a jacket with (also because I'm afraid of spilling something on it).


Calf length skirt from Topshop online (and the bottom half of the silk shirt). I don't usually like jersey skirts but I really wanted a midi skater skirt and this had lots of good reviews. I love it, it makes me feel so elegant (I just typed "elefant" which is more fitting for me, I think).


New Chelsea boots also from Topshop, because I have finally come to accept that the pair I already have are too small (after two years of trying to "break them in"). I was so in love with these, but I wore them for the first time tonight and one of the heels fell off. Clean off! I didn't realise at first so I had to retrace my steps until I saw the missing heel lying there forlornly, and then I had to pick it up off the ground on the busiest part of George St on a Saturday night. I was so embarassed. So yeah, I have sent a snippy email to customer services about getting a refund.

  8. Oh god, that sounds like a nightmare! Good thing your heels weren't very high, or that could've been an even worse situation... Anyway, I'm loving the other things you bought! That silk shirt seems so soft and luxurious :)

  10. Love the look of that blouse, and the skirt! You got some nice things, shame about the shoes though xx

  11. aww that's such a shame about your boots! :( hopefully if you decide to get a replacement topshop pair they're better quality or if not hopefully you find some other better ones soon. i feel like anything jersey just clings in all the wrong places for me so i avoid it as much as i can but every now and then if the garment is well made it really works. i love midi skirts at that length, they do just feel a bit more elegant (or elefant haha) than your average skater skirt.

  12. Awww that's unfortunate about your boots.
    One of my heels broke off in the city, on a night of Vivid.
    I was so embarrassed stumbling around in huge crowds with a flat shoe and a high heel.

    Good luck with Customer Service!

  13. Oh the. blouse. I am so in love! Great deal :) The boots remind me of a pair I used to know, it was too small at first but then somehow I made it work, unfortunately that pair died of fatal dead when I went field drinking in them. TOO MUCH MUD TO HANDLE.

  14. IT FELL OFF!? Ok, wtf... I had some bad quality in Topshop shoes before (but it's always so tempting to just buy them still) but this is something I've never heard before.

    The skirt + blouse are sooooooo nice tho, you seem eleGant !! I can't really pull of midi things, they make my bottom look like one of an elefant :p (or it feels like it)

  18. I've just spent the better half of the past hour going through your blog and absolutely love all your food adventures, especially the teas and scones post! What I really wanted to say was that I love the silk shirt, navy silk on sale is a definite win!

  27. You have a really peculiar way to dress yourself. You choose some simple pieces, but together they get a special touch. I really like the glow and tone of the shirt, and skirt too - lovely. Good friday, xx. The Remembrall

  28. I love your sense of style. They look basic, but combine together it oozes class.

    The shirt really is lovely. Need to get my hands onto a silk shirt.

  29. If there's anything that brings me comfort in this world, it's the fact that you will always find a way to incorporate the color navy in your life.

  34. oh my gosh, I've never had a heel fall off but that sounds horrible! haha. Is your blog name a reference to Harry Potter, or is that a happy coincidence? because if it was on purpose, you're probably my new favorite person.

  36. I have a similar pair of chelsea boots from topshop that lasted me nearly two years of wearing non stop (still going strong) so hopefully it's just one faulty pair. They are beautiful! They actually make me want to buy new ones now :) xx

  43. The silk blouse and the skirt are very pretty. It's a very sophisticated, elegant look. That's really ridiculous about the shoes though. I hope you'll get a refund!
