Art at my fingertips

I'm sure that if you follow me on Instagram, you have seen my recent nail art pictures. I love nail art, I think it is such an easy way to dress up your fingers, even more so for me as I don't tend to wear that much jewellery.

So I thought I would share with you some of the nail designs I've done over the last couple of months.

Very Belated Christmas

I feel awful, the last time I wrote on here was November (bad blogger)!

It's very very belated seeing as we're now in February BUT I'm going to show you all what lovely gifts I got for Christmas. It's mainly going to be picture overload so I apologise in advance!

If you follow me on Instagram (@elizabethalicedavey) I'm sure you've seen some of my recent nail pictures. I'll share those with you in my next post!

Anyway here are the belated pictures of my wonderful Chrimbo prezzies!

(I apologise for the bad lighting ..)

happy leopard

Before I even begin this belated post,I'd like to explain my new domain name. I felt that 'vintage' being in the name was no longer appropriate as I'm not as big of a charity/vintage shopper as I once was. I thought I'd go for something a bit more 'me' and given that this is the name my mum likes to call me as a unique take on my real name 'elizabeth' I thought, why not.

I decided to wear this long sleeve fleck top that I purchased from Primark a while back. It fits so well and is very easy to wear. It has a long draped back so can be worn with quite alot and makes you feel covered in all the right areas, and it was a complete bargain at around £6! I often wear dark colours as for me they are my 'go to' safe colours and are a nice contrast against my pale skin. It seemed to go well with my disco pants by Minimum. From what I've seen, there has been alot of rivalry recently with disco pants and debates over which brand has the best fit. For me personally, these are a pretty good fit (regardless that these are the first disco pants I've tried) as they're high waisted, very long for a tall person like myself and also very tapered on the leg which I hear some disco pants aren't.
The socks are my current favourites as they stand out nicely with a plain outfit, Happy Socks are pretty awesome! These seemed to tie in nicely with my all time favourite YMC shoes that I also wore in my previous post.

which way is up?

It's not very often that I attempt nail art for the simple fact that I'm no good at it! However, yesterday I gave it a shot. My nail inspiration was Zooey Deschanel and her 'Tuxedo' nails. I posted a picture on them on instagram last night (@morningmondayvintage) but there they are again!

If you follow me on instagram, I'm sure you will have seen that we have just recently got a kitten and he has been named 'Mr.Nogart' (don't ask!) the cutest little pain in the arse ever and I'm a bit obsessed with him, bound to be a crazy cat lady of some kind when I'm old!

My newest love are these dunagrees I got for a beautiful price of £4 from a chairty shop! Perfect fit and so easy to dress. Also teamed with my dress that was featured here that I tucked in as a blouse. The shoes shown below are a new purchase from the absolutely beautiful brand YMC , I think these shoes retailed at £160 (don't quote me on that) and I got them for a wonderful price of around £35 off ebay!
