an insight (with a worrying amount of words)

rebecca cohen blog

the above jumper was sent to me buy the lovely vicky of aha shake heartbreaker. it's so fluffy and perfect for keeping me warm that i wore it straight away to the fireworks display that evening. she has some amazing outfits and i'm not jealous of her bag in any way at all!
dress; urban outfitters. jumper; vintage via vicky

five hundred followers?
THANK YOU
you're all beautiful people!
i'm going shopping asap with amy to get a little something for one of you, let's see what liverpool shops have to offer...

looking back, i realise i've never really given any basic facts about myself, so maybe now's the time to have a go (:

rebecca cohen blog

i like to have something on my wrist at all times. not a watch, but things i can genuinely forget about. ribbon, string, etc. currently all i have is my brownstock wristband... it's only a matter of time before the collection builds up again.

rebecca cohen blog

i was walking down brook street the other day and got weirdly emotional seeing that the luella shop had been converted into an aspinal's of london. i miss her so much... but then i met up with friends and went to starbucks (ADDICTION) and then a restaurant for his birthday. swings and roundabouts.

rebecca cohen blog

i like to go out without a plan. it often leads to things that... well, it's safe to say that i've made mistakes, but i don't think that's a bad thing. necessarily.

rebecca cohen blog

i play up to characters quite a bit. i try and embody the better characteristics of luna lovegood, cassie ainsworth, the lisbon sisters, blair waldorf and alexa chung (to name but a few).

rebecca cohen blog

1) my wrist a couple of weeks ago.
2) luella (source)
3) mt and jm on the way to frinton.
4) tennessee thomas and alexa chung (i can't remember the source, sorry!)
5) drinking bollinger post-hot house.

sorry for the sheer amount of words... i'll be less sentimental next time, i promise. xo
