Like A Prayer

Flowery Bow - Primark, Sunnies - Primark, Leopard Print Tee - Charity Shop, Necklace - Dorothy Perkins, Purple Trousers - George @ Asda, Ballet Flats - Primark.

Sunday is now officaly #flashbacksunday on What Chantal Wore Today due to the fact I only ever wear PJs on Sundays because i'm lazy and unsociable like that. 

I rather like this outfit - I have these trousers in green as well but I never know what to wear them with but when the sun comes back out (eventually) I will probably find inspiration from the light and team them up with everything and anything in my wardrobe from paisley blouses through to nautical stripes.

Paradise City

Lucha Mask - Vince McMahon Jr, Blingy Necklace - Primark, Lace Dress - Internacionale, Pokemon Skirt - The Happy Shack. 

This one time I flew over to Florida and tried out for WWE and Vince was like all like WHOAH you're a tough little 'un, here you can be my new female lucha but then I couldn't get a visa so it never happened but I did get to keep the mask - that's my story and i'm sticking to it.

In other news, I love my Pokemon skirt more then ANYTHING - Togepi is my number one favourite Pokemon, he's just so darn cute!

I wish I could find old-school fabric like this in the charity shop and make my own skirts but it's near enough impossible - charity shops are the worst now.

That's Entertainment

Cowgirl Shirt - Matalan, Jeans - Topshop, Shoes - Topshop, Little Unicorn - Toys R Us.

For a family who aren't actually cowboys/cowgirls we (dad and I) own 15 pairs of cowboy boots between us - we are just that cool and want to be Texans that bad.

I did almost wear my purple cowgirl boots with this outfit then realised that would be a bit OTT - I tell a lie, it's only because I couldn't find them underneath all my other shoes or I TOTES would have worn them.

I Wanna Rock

Panda T - TK Maxx, Pink Sweats - Matalan, Penguin Socks - Primark.

Don't worry I didn't go to work like this today nor was it one of those "We can't think of any other sponsor activity because we have no creativity so wear your PJs to work today." 

Today the office went and I did pilates and this was my workout wear but it's totes fug so Kara promised she would take me workout wear sometime this week so I actually look fo' real and not like some big kid!

Sweet Child O' Mine

Fake Glasses - Primark, Cardi - Bank, Marvel Tee - TK Maxx, Jeans - Topshop, Fringed Boots - Internacionale. 

Another flashback outfit (I'm still ill and in my PJs) - taken around 2009 when I was still at university and taking pictures of the various looks of Chantal for a project (i'll upload more throughout the next few months.)

Few notes: 

A) This was when I used to wear glasses thinking it was cool as f**k and not knowing that four years later I would be wearing glasses every day as I can barely see the screen after a few hours.

B) I threaded each single bit of fringe with a bead on those boots - it took bloody ages!

C) I still own those Topshop jeans but I NEVER wear them as they are too normal for my liking - but i'm up for any reccs :).

Necklace and Bracelet - Felike Van Der Leest, LBD - Primark, Studded Belt - Charity Shop, Studded ShoesJeffrey Campbell eBay. 

As you can tell by my hair of a million different colours (WTF is happening with my roots) this wasn't taken today - but the picture I did take today was HORRIBLE as i'm deathly ill so ya'll can take a gander at this picture from the archives instead. 

This was taken for a campaign ran by mima called #wearmima where members of the public could pick a piece of jewellery created by an artist and then do a haul vlog on why they chose that piece which was then uploaded on to The Space by BBC.

You can see the video here - - it was #shamazing to do and I hope there's more like this in the future being the true little fashionista that I am.

I'm too ill and tired to take a picture of what i'm wearing today (sweats & oversized jumper) so thought I would show you one of my favourite outfits of all time.

This was for my BFFs Cowboy and Indians 21st - I wouldn't wear this whole get-up IRL actually I would - I love it so much. 

I'm always the one who turns up in the best outfit when it comes to fancy dress parties. I always want to look like i'm genuine rather then well a slut - Harriet Potter would never wear this!

I've had this body chain for aaaages now (It was only £1) but I have never had any idea at all what to wear it with (since everything I own has a patten on it) but now i've finally found the perfect outfit for it - YAY. 

Although because of what I'm like I won't be wearing this outfit for another three months now - oh well, it can be a seasonal piece.
