Blog Neglect

Hello, my poor neglected blog! I promise I haven't forgotten about you - I've just been so busy, and when I'm not busy, I'm so tired from being busy!
Work is going great, it's starting to pick up a lot now that we're half way through November - I can't believe how close to Christmas we are. Christmas plans are also up in the air until I get the December rota, at the moment it's looking like I won't be back in Glasgow which sucks, but I've promised myself it will be the only Christmas I'm not home for.
In terms of life plans, I've got quite a few things in the works and it's hard to focus especially when all I want to do on my days off is laze around with my boyfriend! However, I'm hoping on Sunday to be shooting some of my vintage stash for my soon-to-be-born online vintage shop. I'm in need of a rebrand but the name, colour scheme and style decisions are somewhat beyond me at the moment until I get a few more things ticked off my list!

I will leave you with one of my favourite Simon's Cat videos :)

Lots of Thoughts!

I know I've been pretty quiet on the blog front recently, I've been going lots of thinking about what I want to do with myself and what my next step will be. Career wise, I'm really interested in becoming a buyer or visual merchandising. Crafting/Etsy/self employment wise, I want to expand more into the vintage clothing side of things.

White Rabbit Threads already has a few vintage pieces (and I have many more to list!) and I had considering opening a second shop but I own the domain and have worked hard to spread the name on Twitter etc. Therefore I have come to the decision that my Etsy will become vintage-orientated with the handmade pieces as an additional thing.

My lovely boyfriend is going to help me reshoot the vintage pieces I already have and shoot the new ones to help with the little rebrand. I'm also in the process of sourcing some gorgeous vintage, and also thinking of specialising in dresses, shoes and bags (I'm definitely a shoe collector myself!).
I'm hoping to have all this rolled out in the next couple of weeks and I will keep the blog up to date with all the goings-ons.

For now, here's some of the pieces already available at White Rabbit Threads;

1980s Gold Jumper Dress

1980s Velvet Trousers
1980s Angora Black Jumper

I'm not currently earning a wage until my job starts in September, but that doesn't mean a girl can't dream, right?
When I'm not working on my online shop, I do tend to daydream about more clothes! The ever revolving cycle of 'I'm bored of my clothes, I'm bored of my style', which is insanely frustrating :) So I thought I would vent some of that frustration into a very pretty blog post.

This super cute feminine chiffon top from American Apparel

These mega skinny high-waisted jeans from American Apparel

Ahh so cute! This is one of those 'I need it in my life' garments.
Bunny print dress from Topshop

I've been toying with the idea of getting some more sophisticated looks in my wardrobe.
This gorgeous drape dress from Topshop is perfect.
And for those cooler summer nights, this cosy angora-mix cardi from Topshop.
A nice change from the nude-coloured shoe trend. 
These gorgeous caramel patent heels from Topshop.

I love these boots with summer dresses and ankle-length trousers!
Great leather ankle boots from ASOS.
This awesome wee briefcase from ASOS!

I'm considering starting vlogging after reading some articles about how many people blog versus how many vlog, and how big the audience for vlogging is. It's something I think I might experiment with over the next few days and see if I can stand the sound of my own voice!

Dream Wardrobe - Workwear!

Firstly, I have some super awesome news - I've got a job! From September I will be working in the Christmas Shop in Liberty's in London - amazing fun, I can't wait to start! I thought I would put together my professional wardrobe 'staple' pieces (...and clothes I want) as well as a few accessories in celebration - and also to somewhat feed my lust for shopping!

I've always wanted a Paul's Boutique 'Maisy' bag, especially the hot pink Barbie one! But I felt the grey was fun yet professional :)
I'm also going to put together a make up look as make up is another one of my passions - and something I can't wait to spend my wages on, hehe!

White Rabbit Threads Promo Video!

Check it out, folks! My awesome boyfriend helped me shoot/edit this wee promo film for my Etsy shop - isn't it so sweet? The song is 'We Are Going To Be Friends' by The White Stripes - it also heavily features in Napoleon Dynamite, I thought it was such a lovely message for my wee shop :)

I've been working away to much on the shop that I've brought my wrist injury back so I'm taking a little day off from crafting and spending it on blog work! Also, I have a couple more items to list so keep an eye out for them later on today.
