First off, how striking is this woman? I love the colour of her hair so much, the platinum blonde sheen instantly reminded me of Khaleesi from Game of Thrones (I’ve recently started watching the series and it’s safe to say I am completely hooked!)
Most of the pieces she was wearing were vintage and so finding close enough alternatives for some of them was pretty hard but I did my best. Recently I’ve been on Ebay a lot (losing at bidding wars mostly) and have noticed how much great stuff there is on it – especially vintage clothing sold abroad from America! (Fingers crossed I win on my most recent bidding war for an amazing pair of printed palazzo pants from the late 70’s!)
Also I thought I’d share a look that I styled recently for a concert with you all 🙂

This look was 100% inspired by Abel Tesfaye’s music (The Weeknd<3). I put it together in the hope of standing out from the rest of the crowd and maybe catching his eye when he peered out at the masses of fans at the O2 Arena the Tuesday before last. I’m pretty sure the only reason I failed to do so was because the guy closest to the barriers I was behind was too tall and blocked me from view half of the time. But I’m sure that he did see me and we shared a few smiles and wonderful moments, that Tuesday I also realised I was more of an avid fan girl that I originally thought (oops)
I did love my whole outfit though, it was edgier that most of what I usually wear and I couldn’t help but feel overwhelmingly confident and hood worthy in it all. That day I felt that I had undeniable (dare I say it? Yes I do) ‘swag’.
Hope everyone has a good week
These are some of my favourite things. Don’t you love them?
The Marc Jacobs watch has been on my wishlist for a few weeks now and I hardly ever wear or want to purchase a watch! The rings are a given, it’s the one jewellery piece I can actually wear for long periods of time without getting too fidgety. However the faux leather jogging pants although a definite coveted item ensues a bout of hilarity for me everytime I bring them up. I think that they may forever remind me of the Kanye West interview with Zane Lowe which Jimmy Kimmel made a pardoy of using children.
I swear that comment was not random! In the original interview, Kanye rants about how he presented the idea of leather jogging pants to Fendi years ago and got rejected; “Me and Virgil [Abloh] are in Rome, giving designs to Fendi, over and over, and getting our designs knocked down … [We] brought the leather jogging pants six years ago to Fendi, and they said ‘no.’ How many motherf***ers you done seen with a leather jogging pants?”
I do love that man, not so much for his music but for the priceless and scandalous statements he makes almost daily.
The tartan crop top and fur gilet had a love affair in my mind and when paired them with the Jeffrey Campbell Scully platforms, VOGUE beanie and smiley face backpack created a formidable edgy synery for me that I couldn’t help but want to see materialised. Rimmel’s line of Kate Moss lipsticks has also had me transfixed as a fan for almost a year now and I own two of the darker red shades (Numbers 01 and 10) with intentions to get more in the future. Overall I could say that I’ve owned four but I lost the other two earlier in the year (I have terrible track with beauty items) but I did replace them which is saying much for their overall appeal. I love this line especially because of how creamy and long lasting the lipsticks are, usually the main problem for me with wearing anything other than a light lipgloss is that the products dry out my lips but BUT THAT NOT A PROBLEM WITH THIS LINE!
Honestly try them out and see for yourself 🙂
Have a good weekend everyone! Bjs**
