Out of all the shopping I do; be it online or in the midst of a rainy local high street (with the promise of a Marks and Spencer’s lunch forever in sight) I always seem to go back to the same familiar places. I know I can always go into Topshop and find a top that completely justifies parting with £18.00, and know that if I find my way to the connecting Miss Selfridge shop there will be something equally as lovely (perhaps this time with sequins) that will result in the same scenario. However, when it comes to clicking up excessive tabs for internet shopping, there’s always one place that’s top of my list, and that’s Olive.
As soon as I set my eyes on this kimono-meets shirt-meets sassy collar-dress (which actually reminded me of something I’d seen on the Miu Miu AW11 catwalk previously) it was love. It’s without a doubt one of the coolest things in my wardrobe, and teamed with an over sized floppy hat, buttoned up or worn like a gown- I feel like freakin’ Jessa from Girls when I wear it, which can only ever be a good thing. I also matched my lipstick to my book (which is amazing, by the way) which was certainly the most over pretentious way I’ve ever accessorized- but hey, I’m reading it and they matched.
Another thing I’ve been reading a lot of is magazines (#girlprobs), particularly Grazia. I was very kindly treated by the people at Ladbrokes to a pretty delightful mini hamper, filled with some incredibly Liv-appropriate goodies in celebration of their casino slots- with a subscription to this tip-top weekly in the bundle and some pretty cute accessories- who’d guess they’d know me so well? I am certainly kitted out for reading material, that’s for sure.
