WHAT I'VE BEEN UPTO.


I had a hair chop
I ordered face lace
I brought the Topshop leather top I have wanted for AGES!
I went to see Gabrielle Aplin 
I wore my Jimmy Choos
I was loving the H&M basic polo necks
I have been wearing my faux fur gilet a lot
I brought a bird print Topshop blouse
I was excited to see my gal palls, not so excited for rain.
I went to a wedding with the cutest sweet bags.


So firstly I apologise for the slight lack of posts lately! A couple of months a ago I lost my job, and this month I have lost someone I love very dearly... so I have not known if I am coming or going to be honest!
I will try to get my bum back in to gear soon, but in the meantime, you can follow my Instagram @HELEN_RAGGYDOLL

HALLOWEEN!






So I have been a terrible money manager this month & have had my hours cut, so unfortunately no halloween fun for me! But I couldn't help but notice all the cool halloweeny bits on the highstreet at the moment. It's all so much better than the cheap crappy costumes you get in the costume shops. 
HOORAY FOR THE GREAT BRITISH HIGHSTREET!
If I had my way i'd love to be rocking that skeleton onesie!


Let me know your dress up ideas!

So I thought I'd show you my new faux fur gilet from Topshop, I wasn't sure which colour to get & very nearly went for the mustard, but I decided my good friend grey was the one for me.
Theres a lot of great faux fur gilets around at the moment, & to be honest it's something that I think is kind of tacky but I cannot help but love! I picked a few of my fave highstreet options out above for you.

I also thought this would be a good opportunity to give you a little insight on my beliefs when it comes to fur etc. If you have read a few of my past posts or seen my Peta advertisement you will be aware that I feel very strongly about the use of fur, & to be brutally honest I think real fur clothes are absolutely disgusting. I went to harrods last year & my friends were touching a chinchilla coat & it made me feel pysically sick. The last thing I want to do is preach, but as this is my blog & it is an issue that I really am passionate about, I thought I would share.
I am a pescatarian, which means I only eat fish. I get the question a lot about why I feel it's ok to eat fish & not other meat. My answer is always the same; in no way do I think meat eating is wrong, I understand that is is natural, but I love food & want to enjoy food. I can't enjoy eating red meat or chicken, it's not in my instinct so I choose not to do so. I also have pet chickens & would never be able to look them in the eye again if I ate a chicken! I love my feathered gal palls!
I do wear leather, but only leather that is a biproduct. I wouldn't wear lambs leather (which means no Chanel bag for me!), or any leather that has been killed for that purpose. 

Apologies for the mini essay, but I hope it has given you a better insight into my beliefs! 

Let me know if you have any thoughts or questions, i'd always be happy to answer.

BLACK BLACK BLACK.








Boyfriend Coat - Topshop
Joni Jeans - Topshop 
 Clutch - Vero Moda
Houndstooth scarf - Zara 
Athena Boots - Topshop
Polo Neck - H&M 



As you can see, black is still my new grey. I contantly look like i'm fresh out of a funeral at the moment. 

I have chopped and changed with a few accessories in this post... but maybe thats one of the great things about our old friend black, it's so easily transitional. I've got my gold chain & clutch for evening & my favourite Zara scarf for a cosy daytime outfit.
 Also, i'm a new member of the polo neck club! H&M have got the best basic ones in for £7.99 in loads of colours (I got black & grey surpise surprise!). The website says they're mostly out of stock, but there were loads in my local shop, so i'd pop in a grab a lovely autumn barg!
 I am quite in love with my new Topshop Athena boots. Again, they're a really good day time to evening piece.

Let me know your thoughts!

(p.s, i've had a haircut)
