In typical fashion, me and my friends went to Afflecks Palace in Manchester. For anyone who has never been to Afflecks, it is basically a huge building with a bunch of independent boutiques, vintage shops, jewellery stalls, fancy dress and everything cute and quirky you can think of. It's a mecca for the weird and wonderful.
In one of the boutiques, Huk, I found the most awesome necklaces, knitted and knotted in bright greens, pinks and yellows, adorned with other dangly bits and sparkles. I went for this knotted multi layered chain. Big statement jewellery isn't usually my thing - I like subtle pieces in silver or gold. But this caught my eye, and thought it would look amazing layered on top of a plain high neck crop or any sort of casual t-shirt for a dressed down look.
You can see why I was so drawn to it in the first place - look at the colours!
I found it interesting to find thread weaved through the chain, gave me a lot of ideas of my own for updating pieces I have lying around at home. So quirky and different!
Yesterday out in the sun I styled it with my super old grey Topshop T-shirt dress for a dressed down look.
On the day, I also picked up this super adorable plunge bra from Ann Summers. I had a fitting, as I haven't bought a new bra in forever, and found out I'm now a 36E rather than a DD! The bra is super comfy and fits me so well, and gives me a lot of extra confidence. The sales assistant, Abbey, was so helpful and made me feel so at ease in her care as she measured me up and helped me find a new bra. She was lovely!
All in all, I had a super lovely day in town with my friends pottering about doing some girly shopping!
