RAWR. IM THE BKM. (BIG KNIT MONSTER).


This is potentially the cosiest thing I own to date.
Big monter knit dress.
Rawr.
Note : I wore this last night, if you followed my twitter, you'd know I was sick today.]

I've been home sick today. After 3 weeks of avoiding the cold my whole family has, It caught me. I've been in bed all day, so these obviously aren't from today. It's getting colder, so I thought it was time to bring out the big knits, except, it's not quite chilly enough for some bit knit tights. Despite Harriet Quick's recent article in Vogue about ditching tights for winter, I will still wear my black tights proudly. After all, as soon as people remember just how cold (the type that chills you to the bone, see last outfit post for plan to move the UK to the equator) it get's here in England, and how whimsical and creative some tights can be, tights will be everywhere. 
I have no issue with claiming to be a Total Tights Tiger.
When it get's cold enough, of course.
So now I'm a TTT and a BKM. 





 Knit dress/ jumper/ monster - Good question, I have no clue.
Socks - Topshop
Wedges - Sonia Rykiel pour H&M


I've also seen a few items I quite fancy, what do you guys think of them? Gogo's or Nogo's?


^ Topshop


^ River Island


^ Nastygal


I'm particularly loving that jacket from River Island, with some black skinnies and a plain white tee.
what's you guys a'thinkin' ? Gogo or Nogo?
I love that phrase.


And a big knit monster hug for all my new followers.

  38. God, I wish I'd had your sense of style when I was 14. I wish I had your sense of style now!! That sounds completely patronising haha.
    I love the big knit, i need more chunky knits, im always chilly and yours looks so cosy.
    I cant believe that jacket is river island, whats going on?! it looks really expensive and nothing like what they usually stock. definitely a gogo! (i love that too!) I think i might try and get one of them myself x
