                    Well, I’m not sure what to say right now, which is hardly surprising seeing as I haven’t blogged in over a year but I’m glad to be back to it. Honest! I’ve missed being able to write on this platform, although reasons as to why I took such a long hiatus are slightly unclear even to myself, I’ve got to say, it was needed. I’ve just started my second year at university so I’ve been taking advantage of the large campus space (time between my lectures) to shoot outfit posts for y’all, so, yes the buildings you see coming up in my posts from time to time are part of my university but hey, girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!

I think my favourite aspect of this outfit overall is how much colour is interwoven into the structuring of it, from previous posts you know I’ve always more or less been about the monochrome and minimalism but recently I’ve been having a strangely sensual love affair with colour – my favourite colour at the moment is pink so you know this is true! The backpack in the post is the best thing I’ve bought in months. Months! And it was on sale too! (£10 bargain yo)

I believe that one of the things that made this ensemble so fun to shoot (asides from having my friend Charlotte be my photographer hehe) was how comfortable it was. I’ve never really been an advocate for the winter time, the thought of my days getting shorter and colder makes me want to get into bed and pull the duvet over my head but, but, but I’m really digging my wardrobe this year so that may just change. This knit (which was the most perfect camel colour) is the warmest and most comfortable piece of knitwear I’ve ever owned, it’s not scratchy as knitwear can sometimes be and its just the right level of thickness to keep you warm but not too warm especially when the weathers as partial as it is in London. The denim jacket I could fangirl about due to having been on the look for the perfect one for over a year, so when came across it last month in Bershka, I knew it was my ride or die. Love at first sight sort of moment.

All in all, I love this outfit with its little splashes of compact colour – especially the pink backpack (I had to mention it again, I just had too) oh and the boots – which have always been a staple piece of my wardrobe are slightly higher than usual too haha. ALWAYS a bonus!

I’m really going to try to keep the posting as regular as possible so love me again and see ya soon



Sequinned Bowties and Leather Leggings

I’ve always had a thing for bow ties. At first my attention pivoted towards the men that wore them, in year 12 I had the biggest crush on this guy for no reason other than the fact that he wore one and he wore it well. Now, however my interest in them has spiked even more so because I realised two things; 1) They are not a male only accessory and 2) Because I feel confident enough to wear them.

The oversized white shirt is a basic need and I urge all women to get one (this one in particular if you can before it runs out of stock!) I had a very different concept in mind when I bought the leather leggings; they were mainly to be paired with baggy sweatshirts and heeled boots but I couldn’t help and try to pair it with the white shirt because as simple as the two items are on their own, together they look, well… really nice. The heels I’m wearing are from New Look and God almighty must have created them because they are literally the most comfortable pair I have ever owned! I’ve worn these for ten hour shifts at a time and still no blisters and no complaints at all!

The overall look is quite simple and yet it’s classy enough to be worn out, a bit of a gender bender with the outfit being very male oriented -albeit not the leggings so much and the latter do help to bring a more feminine touch to the ensemble.

The bow tie is as you may have guessed by now, my favourite part of the outfit and was the statement accessory that tied the entire ensemble together.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Plaid and Leather

Alternative Beige TrousersAsos (All you have to do to recreate the look in the photo is roll up the pant legs!)

Plaid Long Shirt Dress – I managed to find an almost exact match at YesStyle! A shorter version is however available at UNIQLO if that’s more preferable

Boots – Also found these beautiful boots on Ebay!  Definitely grabbing myself a pair as soon as I can!


I shot this couples photo at the Fashionstyleologer fashion book launch and just came across it now. Absolutely loved this woman’s style so decided to make it my next post as it is still technically street style fashion.

I’m not a big fan of wearing leather bralet’s during the day but I liked how it was considerably tamed down by the beige trousers and plaid dress shirt. A very casual and cool look 🙂

Similar Statement Necklace Ebay , Asos and Topshop


I thought this look was effortlessly chic. The exclusion of pattern and print on the garments was made up for by the intricate floral design statement necklace and striped headscarf. This look just exudes an air of sophistication. Over all, very well put together.


Lovely Lace


Dress – Either Asos if you’d like the dress to be pure white or Hurleys/Fantasia Boutique for the same peach white colouring of the dress in the picture.

Similar white Lace coatYesStyle or AliExpress – The latter coat can double as both a dress and/or a coat.

Shoes – Exact match at Missguided!

I hadn’t ever thought about combining white lace together in one outfit before I saw this woman. She truly was able to pull it off and had such a sweet look about her!

Adore peach white lace dress underneath the coat, a slight throw off from the rest of the pure white colour scheme but it worked beautifully.

Earlier this year there was an influx of white in Spring collections. Broderie , brocade, lacework, you name it.

This trend has seemingly leaked into Autumn/Winter collections and the Moncler Gamme Rouge collection Autumn/Winter 2013 at Paris Fashion Week is a prime example!

Perhaps a little over the top for some people and none can attest that it was beautifully executed.


The ethereal white colour scheme, the glittering crystals, mirror panels and snowflake detail on the winter gear brings the White Witch Queen of Narnia to mind almost instantly (for those that have either read the books or seen the movie anyway).

Overall it created a grandiose imagery of seductively beautiful, well dressed, icy hearted winter fairies.

White is often thought to be semantically linked with purity, innocence and most of all the season of winter.

What other way would there have been to bring out all of these elements other than to parade statuesque ice maidens down a catwalk dressed in the colour that ties it all together?

I’m going to take my own advice through the apparent ardour I have for this particular collection and invest in a beautiful white winter coat now.

London Fashion Week is also officially over!

It was great, it was good, it was inspiring, it was awe-spiring and we must sadly say goodbye to it until next year.

I wasn’t able to go to any shows this year but definitely will in 2014!

London Fashion Weekend however starts tomorrow and is on until the 22nd *Claps hands excitedly*

If you’re interested in buying tickets to the events which will be held at Somerset house, this link will direct you where to go.

Hope you’ve all had a lovely London Fashion Week and are looking forward to the next as much as I am!
