Sometimes you just have to..



Every once in a while we all make a seemingly crazy, expensive purchase that makes us giddily happy, and after my 18th birthday that's exactly what I did. I bought the Alexander Mcqueen Silk Skull Scarf a few weeks ago and I adore it! McQueen is one of my favourite couture designers and it's so sad that he's not here any more. His gorgeous skull images are what caught my eye and for the longest time I've been lusting over his scarfs, knowing it would give me so much joy to say I own a piece of McQueen.

As you can imagine, it took me weeks to decide on which colour to go for but after pouring over the website again and again I decided upon the black version with flesh pink skulls. It's slightly more unusual than the Ivory and Black scarf (I would have loved this but couldn't justify spending the money on such an impractical colour!) but nonetheless it goes with so many clothes from my wardrobe!

I've been dying to do an OOTD to show you all but I've always been rushing out so haven't had time. I did however manage one quick photo before my camera died the other day (when it was hot in October, remember?!) so that will have to do for now. Here is the scarf in all its glory!



A better OOTD will follow I promise, I just wanted to give you all an idea of what it looks like on!

    @Gem- I got it from www.alexandermcqueen.co.uk, you can also buy them from Selfridges and at www.net-a-porter.com but they don't seem to have as many colour choices xx
