Leopard print, polka dots...and a scorbster

Gosh, this week just got away with me - it's nearly the end of the week already and I've not really posted anything. Luckily, I went out to dinner last night and remembered to take photos before I left so here, at least, is an outfit post for you all. I was going to wear a dress but I really wasn't in the mood so I thought I'd try something a little different with my leopard print pants and see how a sheer polka dot blouse would look. I don't usually do ruffly blouses but mum bought this and didn't want it anymore; I'm glad I took it off of her hands as I ended up completely loving this outfit.

I finally got to wear the necklace that I won from Hannah which was exciting. Both Hannah and I were calling it a lobster but others said it was a scorpion. After a lot of discussion on twitter I decided that it's a scorbster (thanks Amie!) which is a mix between a scorpion and a lobster; an insect/crustacean hybrid (thanks Claire!). I've completely made up my mind that this is what it is, now, (true to my rather stubborn fashion, I'm probably not going to be open to any further interpretation now that I've made my mind up. Oops.) and I'm very happy with my scorbster. You can read what lead me to the hybrid conclusion on Tumblr.

A scorbster is an amphibious creature; it has the tasty flesh of a lobster that so many non-allergic carnivores desire but the deadly sting of the stingiest scorpion (hidden stealthily in its fan-like lobster tail). So it goes about it’s life relatively un-harassed by predators in such a way as an insect/crustacea hybrid is wont to do. 

I'm not usually one for necklaces at all but I am very much in love with this one!

Oh, and I forgot to say that I've updated my 'About Me' page so it's a bit more filled out.

  1. I love the combo spots and leopard print. I wouldn't have thought the two prints would work together but it looks really good! x

  2. omg I love the description of the scorbster! And it's such a pretty scorbster too. :)
    I nearly bought a pair of leopard print pants similar to these a few weeks ago purely because of your last outfit photos with them. Now I really wish I had bought them. I'm totally digging the pattern mixing.
