I love me a bit of dogstooth - so much so that I nearly went to work in this cute-as-a-button dress from the ever wonderful Niamh's Boutique with my dogstooth jacket, tights and hairband but then looked in mirror and thought it was a bit OTT - NEXT TIME THOUGH.

Cherry Pie

Snood: Stole from Mother-in-Law, Leather Jacket: H&M, Lion Vest: Christoper Kane Primark, Jeans: Topshop, Studded Slippers: Primark.

Not a very special outfit at all today - just something comfy to chill in at the boyfriends - normally I would spend the day in a Marvel top and DC bottoms (i'm controversial like that) but I thought HEY NEW YEAR NEW ME and other crap like that so decided to get a bit pretty rather then being a slob. 



Welcome to 'What Chantal Wore Today' in this blog I shall be chronicling what I wear everyday throughout 2013 so in 15 years time when I have my boy child (Thor Hogan Axl Rose Lauper-Plews) I can be all like "Look what your mum used to wear in her 20s!"

Now just a few notes before we start:
1) I'm a REALLY BAD photographer so no pretentious artsy street-style pictures over here.
2) All post titles will be whatever song i'm listening to ATM - expect A LOT of November Rain, November Rain 1, November Rain 2 etc.
3) I have a bong eye and a veiny face so don't laugh at it - I will probs cover my face up with a picture of Jennifer Lawrence because I love her like that.
4) Expect to see me in PJs and a WWE top 2 days in a row - i'm v.lazy on my days off.
5) If I was in The Warriors my gang would be called The Stud Sisters.

Peace, Love and Rock & Roll.
