He walked down a busy street staring solely at his feet clutching pictures of past lovers at his side.

Ghost jumper: £56, J.W. Anderson x Topshop. Silky collar tee: £18, American Apparel. Leather skirt: £8, Oxfam. Two-tone flats: 50p, Russell and Bromley, via ebay. Brown frame bag: £3, vintage. Ghost ring: Greggs!

Remember when I said I wouldn't buy anything using the extra student discounts in town? Surprise surprise, it didn't happen. The J. W. Anderson for Topshop collection launched a while ago and, for those who aren't aware, this is deemed by the fashion industry to be a Pretty Big Deal. Based around basics, the capsule collection promotes high fashion for those with smaller budgets. In my opinion, £70 for a jumper isn't cheap, but with 20% off I convinced myself that it would be just about acceptable to add this little number to my jumper collection. And it has a bloody ghost on it - who could resist? It's nearing the end of October, which signals my favourite holiday - hallowe'en. Among other reasons (which I will, inevitably,  arrange in a bullet-point list at some point), I look forward to this autumnal event due to Greggs pulling out all the stops and making fairy cakes with free rings. I may not be their intended audience, but I ensure I get at least one every year; please tell me I'm not the only one who does this?

Ignoring baked goods, however painful it may be, life has been b u s y. But the best part, without doubt, is seeing my little blog featured on The Tab's frontpage! Speaking to Rachel (my interviewer) is what convinced me to get involved, but I'd love it if you clicked the image below and read what I have to say about scouse style and student shopping

Wintertime winds blow cold the season, fallen in love, I'm hoping to be.

Ralph 5132 Sunglasses: c/o Sunglasses Shop. Fuchsia silk top: 75p, East via charity shop. Floral print trousers: £13, H+M. Two-tone black flats: 50p, Russell and Bromley via ebay. Multi-coloured bag: gift, Marks and Spencer. Denim jacket: £63, NW3 by Hobbs.

Liverpool doesn't seem to understand seasons; one minute you're wearing a cardigan, tights, and some unintentionally nineties inspired grunge hair (i.e. slicked down with the rain), then you wake up the next morning to discover weather like this. You don't need to take an Open University course in Understanding the Weather (I know someone who has) to realise that the jumpers can stay inside for a day or two more, and head for something a little more summery instead. I, personally, am not one to spend a lot of money on sunglasses, feeling that I spend more than enough on contact lenses and my "seeing specs" to make up for it, and instead choose to raid charity shops until I find ones that my friends roll their eyes at. However, when Sunglasses Shop - the designer sunglasses retailer based just down the A127 from me - got in contact, I thought that maybe it was about time I looked after my peepers a little bit more than I had done previously. In all honesty, I cannot fault them: they fit my face (however silly it sounds, it's quite difficult to find a pair that don't make me look like an insect), are a flattering colour, and I like the subtle cat-eye shape. They also earn bonus points for turning up really quickly, which is handy for those who are rather impatient.

I'm still library blogging (sigh), between readingreadingreading for my dissertation, going to the gym (!), and undertaking a fair amount of projects in the hope that I may end up doing something productive when I graduate next summer. One thing that I'm rather happy to say is I'm now officially the fashion co-editor of The Tab Liverpool, so expect to hear plenty from me over there for the next few months.

Third year: come at me.

Burgundy Georgia blouse: c/o Lovestruck. Leather skirt: £15, Topshop. Black chelsea boots: £60, Topshop. Leather colour-block bag: gift, Marks and Spencer.

You know it's Autumn when the tones of your clothes match the colour of the leaves... perhaps. Lovestruck sent over this beautiful burgundy blouse last week, and I've been imagining wearing it whilst kicking up crunchy leaves in Sefton Park, before realising that I have a mild case of Fresher's Flu(TM), and the only thing I'll be doing for the next few days will be drinking tea under my duvet.

Liverpool has been doing its best to put a dampener on things by raining excessively for the past fortnight, but I shan't let it rain on my parade (yes, I like puns), and find myself wandering between Cuthbert's, Leaf, and the many student events that stores are putting on to entice those who have just received the loan windfall in their bank accounts. I'm going to be relatively good and try to just buy Christmas presents, but when have I ever been able to resist a lipstick
