Black Rats & Picasso

Oh about a million years ago, I tweeted about going to visit the Picasso exhibit. I was totally underwhelmed, my 4 year old neice does scribbles too! But I had a great day, I took in loads of culture and acted like a complete and utter tourist in Trafalgar Square. In a hot outfit…so it doesn’t matter how stupid I was acting 😉 Whilst being unemployed, I rediscovered the wonders of eBay, I have no idea why I ever stopped eBaying it’s a treasure trove of loveliness!! The entire outfit I’m wearing is eBayed, from head to toe. Apart from the jacket and bag…!

Shoes – Asos on eBay
Leggings – Faux Black Rats on eBay
Tee – Topshop on eBay
Jacket- River Island
Bag – Thrifed Louis Vuitton!

    Loving the tee and that jacket! I spend faaar too much time on eBay, it is fantastic when you’re broke lol. And oooh, my university is literally down the road from there!! Haha, and yeah Picasso always gets those comments. When he was younger (like 14) he would draw SO realistically it looked like he was tracing a photograph! In his older age, as he was going blind and bed bound, he would have his assistants stick coloured paper on the canvas where he wanted.

    Great ebay outfit! I think most people do prefer Picasso’s earlier works, because you can actually tell what he’s painting. But I guess it’s very subjective. Still, it looks like you had a nice day! 🙂
