What I Wore Today: 29/04/09

The weather has been complete madness lately, so I've been wearing many 'thrown-on-at-the-last-minute' outfits due to heat/rain/cold. My theory is that the weather'll be the exact opposite of what you think it's going to be, but then it proves me wrong. D:

POF: Skoool. Excuse my dishevelled appearance, it was a long day.
Tops: Both Delias (I have a lighter blue one underneath which is super-cute..need to get better photos of that sometime :D)
Blazer: Urban Outfitters
Scarf: A Wear. Almost wore my furry scarf but it was too hot..then walking into town in the evening it was freezing >.<
Jeans: Topshop
Boots [not pictured]: Dr Martens
Jewellery: kitschtique @Etsy.com, Formulae XO, Tarina Tarantino, Miss Selfridge.

I'm planning to write another style mini-article when I have a free five minutes. I've got lots of ideas, & hope it'll be worth reading & help people out!

What I Wore Today: 23/04/09 (New Purchases! ♥)

New clothing makes me ridiculously happy! Even if I feel kinda guilty about the cost, it's always a fun experiment to wear something new, especially if it's not a style you'd normally wear.

Dress/top thing: Forever 21 (new)
Belt: Forever 21 (new)
Hoodie: Forever 21 (old)
T-shirt: Charlotte Russe
Necklaces: FormulaeXO, Forever 21 (new)
Jeans: Topshop Tall
Shoes: Harajuku Lovers (out of shot..must take picture of them! They rock)
POF: I could be the new poster child for Forever 21...

I adore the new 'dress thing', named so because I'm not sure whether it's supposed to be a top or a dress. It's kinda long and I suppose it could pass as a very short dress, but it's not very opaque & therefore might not be so great when worn as such. Though it would look very cute over a cami top and some black tailored shorts in the super-hot weather. Plus it looked pinker on the website photo, but I'm still very pleased. Am hoping I shan't snag it anytime soon.

LOVEE this belt. I bought a buckled waist belt recently but manage to misplace it before even wearing it, so this is the first time I've worn one like this. I love the chunkiness & the rock&roll style of it. Though it is a bit tight (despite being marked as a size M/L!) & hurts my back slightly from the tightness - I recently had my back adjusted so I may not wear it for a while just yet...

I bought this as an extra item in my order as I thought it was super-cute. In the site photo it looked like the pendant was painted china, but it's in a plastic bubble which makes it unusual & so pretty! The size of the rose changes when you look at it from different angles, so I think it's definitely rather unique.

Overall I'm pleased with my new purchases! I can't wait to try wearing them with different styles.

22 April 2009

My Forever 21 Order! + What I Wore Today.

Yay, it's FINALLY here! After such a long wait, I was relieved and delighted to finally receive it.

My mum picked it up from the Post Office today because there was a customs charge. Such a huge box for what I ordered!


I'm wearing my purchases tomorrow so I'll be sure to take photos & give my verdict on the lot!

The only thing that irritated me was the cumulative cost of the whole order - it was ridiculously expensive for what I received.
Cost of merch: $43.40 / £29.78
Cost of shipping: $39.95 / £27.41
Customs charge: $18.44 / £12.65
Total cost of order: $101.79 / £69.84

Wow! I don't think I'll be purchasing anything from their site again; my current account balance has gone right down after this. Maybe I'll ask for something from there as a birthday present instead? I'm a little annoyed that even though the package was very light, the shipping cost almost $40 - a package of that weight shouldn't even cost $10 to send! The package must have been stamped by their own franking machine - very sneaky indeed - as the actual cost isn't shown on the box. I think they'd get many more UK and international customers if their shipping prices were honest and reasonable.

I better get my wear out of my purchases. At least they're cute, so I should wear them lots!

This is what I wore today:

POF: Wearin' my skully skirt for the first time in forever. Anyone got any great ideas on how to wear it?
Blazer: Urban Outfitters
Scarf: Camden
Tee: The Rocket Summer gig
Necklaces (hidden) Delias / Formulaexo.com
Skirt: H&M
Tights: I used to wear these to school when we had uniforms..so I forget where they're from.
Boots: Demonia.

I was also wearing a cute skull cameo brooch from the wonderful Kitschtique at Etsy.com. She makes delightfully cute things, so go check out her shop!

Unfortunately the temperature here has suddenly rocketed, so I doubt I'll get to wear tights and jackets for a while because they're super-warm. I'll miss you, black clothes! I'll definitely wear something thinner tomorrow.

Question: How has the sudden (but welcomed) hot weather affected the way you dress?

16 April 2009

What I Wore: 16/04/09

Did my driving theory test today..& I passed! Wore new top & scarf which I bought yesterday, both of which I'm super-happy with.

Had to lean back slightly as my boots are kinda big. (I'm not that chubby)


POF: Wearin' new stuff.
Top: Urban Outfitters..hardly ever buy anything full price from them since they're usually a bit of a rip off, but the cut of this top made me happy. It's super-long at the back and shorter at the front. It's hard to see how awesome it is from this photo, but I'll definitely wear it again soon & take a better picture.
T-shirt: Pac Sun
Scarf: A|Wear - £3 in the sale :D
Necklace: Delias
Belt: Some hippy store
Jeans: Primark
Boots: Demonia. Made it kind of hard to leave the test center "quietly", as the buckles jingle like Santa's sleigh.

I'm ridiculously happy at passing my theory test - only the hard part left to finish!

Style Survey.

In the spirit of Bank Holiday Monday, I feel a fun & relaxing quiz is in order!

It would be excellent if anyone reading this would comment with their responses or post a new entry in your own blog to fill it in (don't be shy!), to see people's different approaches to and opinions of their own personal style.

I'll start with my answers:

1. Latest fashion purchase?
Black Primark shorts from Ebay. They haven't arrived yet, but they were wonderfully cheap. I was thinking of finding some gorgeous patterned tights in an L size to go with them - Topshop's tights are divine at the moment, shame they're all one size!

2. Item in your wardrobe you've owned the longest?
A Pikachu t-shirt my cousin bought years ago. Still fits! ♥ It's kinda thin & short to wear in public, but it's awesome for pyjamas.

3. Where is the furthest away from home you've ever bought an item of clothing? & What did you get?
In person? Anything I've bought in the US so far. If you want to be super-accurate, probably a t-shirt from New Smyrna Beach.

4. One particular brand that takes up the most space in your wardrobe?
Not sure on this one. Hmm, possibly Delias or H&M, I have so many pieces from both. Long sleeve thermals from Delias are the best thing ever invented. Hooray for waffle knit!

5. And your least favourite brand?
Apologies for being unoriginal, but probably Uggs, more specifically their footwear. If they were about 90% cheaper and looked vaguely cute, I might have considered wearing them as slippers. Though they're huge, hideous, overpriced things on the feet of people across the world - how did this happen?! And they're not even practical - real snow would wreck them. [/rant] I could go on forever!

6. Worst personal fashion 'faux-pas'?
Wearing boy clothes when I was 12/13ish - boy hoodies, boy shoes, boy JEANS even! There are photos out there somewhere. *shudder*

7. Favourite colour to wear?
Aqua, blue or black. Black is mainly from band tees (I NEED to learn to sew them into pretty fitted tops!) and blue just looks better on me than most colours.

8. What are your shopping strategies? How do you go about looking for new pieces for your wardrobe?
Personally I find this ridiculously difficult! I normally have specific stores in mind when going out and make sure I look at everything in there. I try to pinpoint particular items that go with my own personal aesthetic and try anything on before I buy it. Though this is difficult in crowded stores (Primark!), when it's simply a case of grabbing something and hurriedly attempting to pay for it to avoid the masses of people.
The most nightmarish situation is shopping in a small town, as I often feel that the day is wasted if I haven't bought something, and end up buying items I don't genuinely like just to feel I've done something useful.

9. If you were a fashion stereotype, what would you be, based on the majority of your wardrobe?
Emo or punk, definitely. I'm constantly told that I look like a smoker, though I'm not sure if that's my clothing or simply some kind of vibe I emit. I have a fetish for the traditional punk stuff, like vintage leather jackets, plaid and Dr Martens. One day I want an authentic crusty (not literally of course!) punk leather jacket, with patches and all.

10. 4 items you really want right now (clothing/look-wise)?
- A real Miu Miu bag
- The Frye boots I'm intent on owning
- A blue suede biker jacket from Topshop
- Long divine hair!

11. Any last words?
I should quit procrastinating and do some revision...

11 April 2009

What I Wore Today: 11/04/09

POF: Going out to eat w/ family. Posh dinners are boring, as I never like anything on the menu. Raw salmon is foul. D; So I might as well wear something I like if the day's gonna be boring!
Blazer: Primark
T-shirt: Bleeding Star
Necklaces: Formulaexo.com, Delias, Topshop
Belt: Lowlife
Jeans: H&M

Excuse my messy room, I literally dumped out my suitcase onto the floor when I got home last night. I travelled for 3 hours via public transport (in the rain!) to go to a gig with my b/f. It ended up being cancelled. So I wasn't too happy, & therefore felt much too drained to organise my stuff.

Though I did manage to fall in love with this perfume.
SO GOOD. I bought a 5ml bottle on Ebay which should arrive soon. I tried it a couple days ago, it's amazing. A completely sexy, sophisticated & expensive aroma which isn't overpowering, just like you'd expect from Vivienne Westwood. Plus the bottle will look pretty on my dresser.

It's ALWAYS good to wear expensive perfume, as it nearly always smells divine, & the smell won't make you gag after several hours.

Hope everyone gets to do something fun for Easter! ♥

10 Favourite Thrifty Beauty Buys! Save Money By Shopping Smart

In times of desperation and economic crisis, money is all-important. Everyone worries about not having enough of it, some more than others, and it can buy us wonderful things like clothes, CDs and pretty jewellery. Saving money has become an extremely vital issue lately, and there's so many creative methods you can do to save a little extra yourself.

One HUGE way in which many people waste money is through buying stacks of makeup and cosmetics, much of which is unused. According to recent studies, the average woman spends over £750 on cosmetics every year - this includes hair products, makeup and body treatments. Sounds about right, hmm? Are you spending £20 on an item when you could have a similar (or even better) result for a fraction of the price? How many unopened or barely used bottles, tubs and pots of the stuff are filling up your drawers? Imagine how many pairs of shoes £750 could buy! (this always helps me to visualise large amounts of money!) Why do we purchase this unneccessary excess of sweet-scented, sticky, gooey goodness, and how does it end up there? We all do it, it happens. But do not feel guilty! I have compiled a list of hints, tips and my top favourite super-cheap and wonderful cosmetic items to help you lighten your makeup bag and not your wallet.

1. Photobucket
Name: The almighty Vaseline!
Why it rocks: Truly the item of a hundred and one uses. (Talking of which, have you read this humorous review yet?
Vaseline beats any moisturiser or lip balm. Rub it all over your lips before falling asleep and wake up the next morning to luscious softness. Sore nose? No problem! Same goes for your nostrils, especially useful during the season of colds and runny noses. I could go on forever, seriously.
Buy it here: Practically any drugstore or supermarket, almost anywhere in the world. So convenient!
Price: Usually between 90p-£1 for a small tin like the one pictured, depending on where you buy it from.

2. Photobucket
Name: VO5 Silky Smooth Miracle Mist
Why it rocks: Who else worships their hair straighteners but hates fried hair from the heat damage? Truthfully, the only way to 100% prevent fried ends is to boycott the heated appliances and give your poor hair a rest. However if you're a true devotee to the holy GHDs, you'll need a trusty heat defence spray that will loyally stick by your side and never let you down, no matter how hot things get. The Miracle Mist is a prime candidate for this - it is easy to manipulate, does what it promises and can be picked up at a bargain price. I have used many horrible products in the past that claim to defend the hair from heat, but ended up leaving me disappointed, my ends more fried than ever. However this spray will defend your poker straight locks like a valiant hero and keep them in beautiful condition. I use it every day and it hasn't let me down.
Buy it here: Larger Boots stores will stock it. Or buy online from Chemist Direct. Though there is slightly different packaging in different countries, so read the packaging to ensure you're buying the right product!
Price: £3.15 for a 150ml spritz bottle. Or save 6p and buy from the above link! Every little counts, right?

3. Photobucket
Name: Ulta Eye Shadow
Why it rocks: High quality, excellent choice (99 colours! Think of the possibilities!) and there is always a great offer on them, such as 3 for $10, or the current 2 for $7 (buy one get one free..I'm there!). This makes them ridiculously cheap, as well as being great additions to your eye shadow collection. I love experimenting with the more unusual shades and use them as much as my more expensive Urban Decay and MAC shadow. Currently I have around 6 colours, but will shortly return for more.
Buy it here: Shipping is only available to the US - American sweethearts buy it here from Ulta's online store. UK and worldwide darlings, make the Ulta store it a must visit on your next transatlantic shopping spree.
Price: Currently $7 each; however the latest discount lets you pick up 2 for this price! Hooray!

4. Photobucket
Name: Superdrug Extra Gentle Apple De-Tangling Spray
Why it rocks: It makes coarse, tangled hair and knotted hair extensions a thing of the distant past. It doesn't matter that it's for kids, it works just as well on adults without spending ridiculous amounts of money on expensive conditioning sprays. A wonderful extra bonus: it will make your hair smell like deliciously juicy apples. I used to use it on my old hair extensions, as they tangled ridiculously easy. This stuff made them smell of fruity goodness as well as leaving them soft and smooth.
Buy it here: Superdrug. Unfortunately it's not online, hence the tiny picture (only one I could find!)
Price: 99p! Pay with £1 and throw the change into a wishing fountain for good luck.

5. Photobucket
Name: Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes
Why it rocks: Stubborn eyeliner and mascara smudges will never stain your pillowcases again. One of the worst things about wearing makeup is having to take the whole lot off at the end of the day. Eye-burning mascara cleanser and skin-drying foundation remover are not the most pleasant thing to slather onto your delicate skin every night, so do your face a favour and use these super-gentle cleansing wipes instead. They are wonderful for eradicating even the most stubborn black eyeliner and waterproof mascara. I don't think I could live without them. There are several variations, including age-resisting and exfoliating, but personally I think the original ones are the best.
Buy it here: Most supermarkets and drugstores, including Tesco and Waitrose. Though Boots seem to be rather cheap too.
Price: £2.93 from link above, anywhere around £3 from anywhere else. There are 25 wipes in a pack, so that's a mere 12p per day to remove every bit of makeup. Your skin will love you for it, I promise.

6. Photobucket
Name: Maybelline Full 'N' Soft Mascara
Why it rocks: Why throw away money on expensive mascara when you can have beautiful, full, clump-free lashes for a fraction of the price? I know I sound like a mascara advert, but it's true! Since discovering this several months ago, I swear I haven't used anything else. I'm often skeptical about cheap makeup but this is the real thing. It'll make your lashes look natural, full and soft (does exactly what the name implies) without spidery clumps or flakes. I don't think I'll be using anything else for a long time either.
Buy it here: For some reason I can't find it in the usual high street stores - maybe it's only available in the largest branches? If you can't find it, don't bother buying any other Maybelline mascara, as the rest just don't match up to this. Get it cheapest on Yu Yu Beaute. Or Ebay it! Always check feedback and buy from a trusted seller.
Price: £3.25 from the above link, possibly cheaper from Ebay retailers.

Name: Body Shop Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick
Why it rocks: It's my favourite flavoured lip balm ever. It'll make your lips pillowy soft and smelling of delicious creamy chocolate - is there any better flavour?! It's not foul and cheap-smelling like many other chocolatey lip balms, this is the closest you'll get to real chocolate cosmetics. And who wouldn't want to kiss a girl whose lips taste of cocoa butter?
Buy it here: The Body Shop.
Price: £3.90. I know, not as cheap as many other lip balms, but definitely worth the price!

Name: Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets
Why it rocks: No more oily skin! The first time you try these, they are truly like pocket-sized miracles. I got hooked on these when the chinese students at my school let me borrow some they'd brought back from Hong Kong, and I simply had to get my own. You can see all the excess oil it removes on the wipe - very cool in an odd sort of way! Try them for yourself and take them everywhere, you'll adore them. I can't believe they don't sell them in the UK - I always knew English people were crazy.
Buy them here: A reputable seller on Ebay. Buying in bulk works out cheapest, though buy a single pack if you've never tried them.
Price: Ebay bulk buying works out at approximately £1.5o each.

9. Photobucket
Name: Johnson's Baby Powder
Why it rocks: Babies smell awesome! It has that gorgeous fresh baby smell to it - light, fresh and heavenly. Just like Vaseline, baby powder is a product of many uses. It is the best dry shampoo I've used - sprinkle a few touches onto your hands, rub it vigourously through your hair and say goodbye for greasy roots for the day. Of course, you should wash your hair frequently as usual, but it's a lifesaver when your hair is unusually greasy one morning, or you've forgotten to wash it the night before. Also great for its intended use, as your skin will be sweet-smelling and silky soft.
Buy it here: Boots has great 100g mini containers of it - perfect for handbags and travelling. Just remember to twist the top closed before throwing it into your suitcase!
Price: 97p for the small 100g; £1.69 for the mighty 500g.

10. Photobucket
Name: A Crash Course In Skincare Fresh Face Mask
Why it rocks: Take advantage of Lush's most generous freebie offer and choose this delightfully fresh & natural mask as your reward for returning your black pots. I have tried several of their fresh face masks and this is my favourite by far. One pot gives you 6-8 masks of yummy avocado, lemon and yoghurt mixture to make your skin soft, glowing and touchable. It's perfect for sensitive skin, won't dry out your face or make a mess of the bathroom.
Buy it here: Lush
Price: £6.31, or free upon the return of 5 clean black pots.

There is so much more I'd like to add to this list, though I think 10 is a good number for now! I may post a sequel to this if anyone finds it useful.

Some more helpful economising tips:
- Buy your favourite products in bulk lots & larger sizes! Is there a particular shampoo, vitamin or other cosmetic product you use frequently and would benefit from if you bought a larger size? You can save several pounds by buying hair products such as Catwalk conditioners (my favourite!) in duos or mega bottles. I always buy a larger salon size to save money and packaging. Keep a look out for similar deals at your local hair salon, or from a reputable Ebay retailer such as Unwind Me, who have amazing deals on salon brands when bought in bulk.

- Sign up for a store card from your favourite cosmetic stores. If you're a frequent shopper at Boots, signing up for a points card is free and can earn you tons of wonderful freebies. It's the most generous points card in the UK, letting you build up a personal store of points to spend on any products instore which your heart desires. This is an excellent way to save money on your everyday necessities, or spoil yourself with perfumes and extravagant body lotions. I have a similar card from Ulta which works similarly, just a shame that it's so far away. We all deserve it, don't we?

- Don't be afraid to ask for free samples. If you're pondering spending your hard-earned cash on an expensive body scrub, at least make sure you truly like it first! There's nothing worse than blowing money on a product, coming home and finding out you hate it. Stores such as Lush and The Body Shop have lovely employees who will gladly bestow an array of free samples and yummy smells upon you. Everything is labelled and given in generous portions, so you can experiment with it properly and find out whether it's worth your cash.

- Sell new and lightly used products on Ebay. There's nothing worse than receiving stinky perfume or soaps from a 'loving relative' every Christmas: the ones who forget your name and buy you something awful that you could truly do without. "No, Auntie Vera..I REALLY don't want another Barbie fragrance!". Instead of finding its home in the depths of your dresser, maybe it could be passed on to someone else who would enjoy it. If you're an Ebay addict, it's a great opportunity to gain back some money on your shopping mistakes and let others benefit from your beauty faux-pas. However when selling used cosmetics on Ebay, think to yourself, "Would I want to receive a similar product in this condition?" Always be completely honest about the item, its condition, why it's used and how it's been used (to avoid germs!). Being 100% honest about anything you sell is vital!

So after this mammoth entry, here are some questions:

How much do you reckon you spend on cosmetics each year?
Favourite thrifty beauty buys?
What are your favourite cosmetic stores for great value products? Lush is mine! I could literally live there - the factory is only 30 minutes away, so it's not exactly impossible...
Best money saving techniques when it comes to cosmetics?

What an entry! Probably the biggest I've done so far: I figure it's a result of procrastination from holiday homework. I'd love to hear comments, tips - any feedback would be wonderful.

Summer! ♥

The days are getting longer, the weather's getting warmer, the ice cream van is outside school almost every day now. This can only mean one thing...Summer!

Question: What do YOU wear for summer?

Personally, I've never really worn anything seasonal or suitable for warmer weather before. When I used to go to Florida to see my family every year, it was clear to other people which one of us didn't live there! Normally I'd just wear t-shirts and jeans, despite the heat. Plus my parents have weird issues about leg shaving, so I never show my legs for fear of terrifying young children.

Despite before, I really want to get some pretty summery clothes this year which I can actually wear! I don't want to be the sulky goth child sitting under an umbrella at the beach while everyone else is enjoying themselves. I love pretty skirts and bermuda shorts (though they've never caught on much in the UK..why?!) but usually layer them somehow instead of wearing them by themselves. Though in summer it's too hot to wear tights and long socks, and so it's necessary to start wearing cool, seasonal, pretty things!

There's some gorgeous new styles in the stores this season - a great excuse to restock your winter wardrobes with fun and fabulous items.

I ordered these from Forever 21:

I can imagine it layered with tights, skinny jeans, t-shirts or on its own. Plus the colours are gorgeous.

I need a high waisted belt, no question. This one is slightly punk-ish and plain without being too dull, I adore it.

Pretty. :D

Because of astronomical (& unfair!) international shipping costs, I wanted these as well:

Another pretty dress, I love the colours of this.

Vests rock. Double breasted things are awesome. Therefore this vest/waistcoat must be mine.

If these are still around by my birthday, I'm definitely asking for them. Though if I'd have had these too, after shipping would've been added, I'd have had to pay over $150! And that's even without possible tax. I know many US clothing companies are being kind to us foreigners by offering international shipping, but it should be based on weight and size of the order rather than price. They are putting off many potential customers by putting up their shipping rates to ridiculous prices just to post a couple of dresses or tops, which is completely unnecessary.
Though some places are still making excuses, refusing to post anything outside of their own states. We've gotta be grateful for the companies that make the efforts, I suppose.

Back on topic: what are some of your favourite trends in the stores for this summer?
Mine are:

- Layered/ruffled dip dyed clothing.

From M&S. My nan offered to buy this as part of her frequent marksandspencer.com shopping spree - I didn't know whether I wanted it at first, but I may have to take her up on that!
Primark also have some pretty dip dyed long tops in different styles and colours.

- Colourful boho. I must namedrop Primark again, as I feel it is yet again necessary. It's not the ugly brown, stringy, beaded, old lady boho look of several years ago, it's fresh and new in an array of rainbow colours with some gorgeous swirly prints & sexy details. Some of Primark's newest tops and dresses have some exquisite summery prints with silvery details, reminiscent of that old boho look except not as hideous.

- Plaid! Plaid works around the clock - wooly double breasted coats, hobo bags, jackets and dresses all look wonderful in the classic plaid design. Just don't go over the top.

So these are my questions:
What do YOU wear in the summer?
Favourite (or least favourite) summer trends this year?
Any amazing summer finds already?

No outfit pictures today, as I'm wearing simple jeans & a Paramore tour tee ready for cleaning out my bunny's hutch. I don't mind - he appreciates it!

What I Wore: 2/4/09

Bit of a late post but I've been super-busy lately, what with my college interview & getting ready for the boyfriend's birthday. Very excited. :D

I'm off school for 2 weeks now, can't wait!

This is what I wore Friday:

Jacket: Primark
T-shirt: Pac-Sun
Necklaces: Formulaexo.com (they have such wonderful jewellery!) & Delias
Skirt: Urban Outfitters (yay for ultra-cheap goodies in the sales)
Boots: RTBU white engineer boots RIP. ='[ The entire sole came off the morning this was taken! I've learnt from my mistakes though, I wore them way too much. Might be getting some Veronica Frye boots instead for everyday wear, & buy some different white ones from Sweet Chili Lolita. But not wear them quite so vigorously.

1 April 2009

What I Wore Today - 31/3 + 1/4/09

A double post today, as my enthusiasm for wardrobe detox yesterday turned into an entire article! School has been very busy indeed, though tomorrow is my last day before Easter (yay!) with a college interview on Friday - exciting stuff!

POF: Getting hair trimmed & hiking to skool for lessons.
Hair: My very fabulous hair stylist! I'm trying to grow it an extra 3-4", so the dead ends need trimming frequently.
Jacket: Kate Moss @ Topshop. £35 in the sale from £70+! It looks ugly on the hanger, but I adore wearing it, as it has a subtle leopard print all over & is cut differently from the other blazers I have.
T-shirt: Pac-Sun
Necklaces: Tarina Tarantino & Delias
Jeans: Topshop
Boots: Doc Marten (James & James). Though still painful after wearing them often for a month - anyone have any tips on breaking them in?

POF: Comfortable & bright for hardcore English Lit revision on a (mostly) free day at skl.
Scarf: Smelly scarf man stall at Camden
Hoodie: Urban Outfitters US several years ago
T-shirt: Delias
Jeans: H&M
Boots (not pictured): RTBU. I try not to wear them inside, as they're kinda dirty & falling apart! Yesterday (when I wore them), a metal bar fell out from between the sole and the upper part..no idea where that came from. So strange!

I would love to have a tripod and a remote for my camera, but not sure whether they come for my humble Panasonic Lumix. Maybe when I'm rich & have money for a sexy Nikon D90?
