"Increse the Peace"

Went out for a rare drink with the boyf last night- rare due to the fact we both work in bars and do silly hours!

I got to wear my new (sort of) leopard print faux fur coat which I was pleased about!

Vintage faux fur coat: £35, eBay; Cross earring: £6 (for 2), ASOS; Letter necklace: vintage;  Belt: 50p, charity shop; Playsuit: £25, Baylis & Knight; Vintage Jane Shilton bag, £3.99, charity shop; Boots: Jeffery Campbell
I've wanted a coat like this for years but have never been lucky enough to thrift one; I finally bit the bullet and bought this one from eBay for £35 last week.

If you see a coat like this in a charity shop, buy it. Honestly, there are last year's New Look versions (which were in the sale for £20 last Jan if I recall!) going for £40+ on eBay- madness! My vintage one is a little more original so I was quite happy to fork out £35 for it.

Showing off my new Litas!
Also wearing the playsuit I mentioned in my last post. I love plain, well-fitting clothes that you can just chuck a statement coat over- I might be treading into Bet Lynch territory otherwise!

The night ended fairly weirdly. We bumped into my old manager and his friend at the pub so had a few drinks with them. After being chucked out at close, we (and a few other curious drinkers) headed over to a house opposite which was covered in fairy lights and banners and ended up going inside.

We were greeted by a load of squatters who were strewn around the house playing the guitar and scrawling on the walls. We stayed far too long for my liking- Chris was busy having a debate with one of the squatters about their rights and the fact that we pay our taxes and the rent and are getting by just fine! (Reading this over my shoulder, he says, "I was being Louis Theroux!")

The post title, "Increse the Peace", by the way is something which was penned in the Ladies at the pub, followed by "Can't spell you fucking idiot".

It perhaps was a prophecy about the events to follow...
