top: ASOS
skirt: Topshop
rings: both Topshop

Nice early post tonight since these photos only took about 3 hours to get semi-right just noticed the collar is sitting funny though so not happy. Sorry I haven't posted in a while and if you missed me, I've been moving my room about and haven't been able to find a suitable wall space for outfit photos until now! Finally got my lights to shine in the right direction, got so frustrated trying to do it. I have one of those weird lights with four bulbs that you can point wherever you want. Useless information I'm sure, but never mind.

I tried my hands at a fishtail plait for what seems like the millionth time last night and finally succeeded. My hair is such an awkward length and it's so ridiculously thick that I found it nearly impossible till I saw this tutorial. I really recommend it if you can't get the hang of it like me, not sure why I failed at copying every other video and that's the only one that really helped me! I really want to get some extensions to make it super long and pretty, but I probably won't..

In case you're wondering what the title means, it's the name of a mythical creature similar to a mermaid, but with two tails. I discovered the term when I researched Starbucks' logo history a couple of years ago for a branding project! Lots of fun (I'm not even being sarcastic).

Day off tomorrow, hopefully I can get some uni work done, I'm so stressed out it hurts.

  1. You know I am exactly the same with fishtail braids, I just can't get it right! So I'm hoping this video is pure genius and clicks with my brain too! I like this outfit, it's a shame the top is annoying material, I always end up wear a strap top under tops like that, so it sorts the bra showing, and gappy problem :)

  7. Love the top but can totally see what you mean about the material - M&S do magical tshirt bras that will change your life in many ways!
    Fishtail plait (i always think that looks like it's spelt wrong?!) looks fab too, times like this I wish I had long hair!

  8. I wish I had the luxury to shop all the time like you! Guess I'll just live vicariously through you. I like that I can see that long bump in your wall. You're rocking this look, Emma!

  9. I love your top =) The colour of it is so nice, and of course the peter pan collar is lovely! I have a light like that too but I just can't get them to point right, plus I burn my hand everytime I try to move them haha!
    That fishtail plait tutorial looks like a good one, I'm definitely going to try again, I haven't got the hang of it quite yet but I'm planning on using my sister's hair which is longer and less layered =D

  12. regarding the starbucks logo history, i'm also doing the same for my graphic design essay!
    i'm so chuffed, and they've recently changed their logo this year so i've got lots to talk about - considering alottttt of people don't like it.

    :) your hair is wonderful by the way!

  14. You look adorable in that top! I love it!

  15. Lovely outfit and hair :) you can get those invisible bras, they're just normal but are made of funny material and have scalloped edges so it doesn't show. I got one from la senza before. xo.

  16. I like the top on you but i'm with you on how annoying the flimsy thin matrial is! I have a couple of tops like it and they really wind me up because I hate tshirt bras :/

    cute shoes. and I love the rings! going to have a browse on topshop now xx

  17. Your hair has turned out brilliantly :) I also love your top, all peter pan collars look dodgy on me (they mange to get tucked in or stick up and make me look manic) so yours looks rather good x

    ReplyDelete
  18. Seems like you really got the hang of the whole fishtail plait thing - it turned out so well! It's always a bit of a debacle when I try to do one on my hair and invariably ends up with a big matted mess at the back of my hair and/or me in a really bad mood...maybe I'll watch the tutorial and try again!!

  21. Love the hair, great job. That outfit is lovely, too, can't get enough of peter pan collars. x

  22. need to check out that tutorial, i literally cannot get the hang of fishtail braids, although it might just be me being special. m&s do good tshirt bra's, you could try out one of theres? (although they aren't the prettiest haha) the colour of the top is lush xx

  23. Love the top but I agree with you on how flimsy the material looks! I'm beginning to think invisible bras don't exist!

    Your fishtail plait is lovely too, I can't wait until my hair grows long enough to plait! xx

  24. I love the collar of the top! I find it really difficult to do fishtail plaits, I just end up giving up!
