Lucy Clutch Bag – BANK Fashion – Marc B
I apologise if I’m scaring you with that glare, I really didn’t meant to come off that unapproachable (blame it on the lack of sleep!)
Recently, BANK Fashion launched Marc B on their online site and sought out to collaborate with different bloggers on a ‘What’s in your bag’ sort of theme. Well guys, here you have it. This is what was in my Marc B Lucy Clutch bag – which I think is gorgeous – Burgundy always was one of my favourite colours!
Barry M Smoking Hot Makeup Palette – Dark as my soul x Yum!
Kate Moss 107 (One of the best shades of red I have ever come across!)
Mac DIVA – Perfection.
Rimmel Scandalous Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner (Can’t leave the house without it)
White Apple Earphones
I have to confess. I’ve never really been a clutch bag kind of girl but I honestly do love this Marc B clutch, it’s so practical and minimalist in terms of it’s design and detail and yet undeniably stylish at the same time. Just my kind of man, I mean bag* (There could be a pun involved there). I chose to keep the colour scheme of this look as dark as I could with varying minimalist monochrome detail – you could say I was inspired to do so. The only pops of colour allowed were the Lucy Clutch Bag and my lipstick whose shade perfectly matched that of the clutch (Lord love me some Diva!) Alternatively I also picked out my gold choker to offset the gold detail on the zips of the clutch. What can I say? When I set out with styling an outfit, I really do pay attention to every little detail.
Hope you all dig this little outfit and have had a good start to the week!
Coat – Cyberdog
Leggings – ASDA?!
Shoes – Buffalo
So yesterday, whilst I was on my way to an interview for one of the universities I’d applied to – an interview I thought I was going to be late for- I came across this eclectic shock of colour and visual appeasement. I knew I had no time to spare but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to photograph such a look!
Can you believe those leggings are from ASDA? Can you? I couldn’t when I first heard so! The shoes are amazing though, I always knew Buffalo platforms would make a comeback, I just wasn’t sure when. This whole ensemble gave off a modernist vibe, fitting enough as Cyberdog is known for their far into the future designs which have been known to shock quite a few (and by that I mean a lot) people. Their cutting edge style and inherent funkiness have tided many, who find the vast majority of what’s in the high street stores to be boring, over to being their faithful consorts. Truth be told, I quite like it and think that it will blow up as a trend in the next few years. Only time will tell!
Asides from that, I did make it to my interview on time! Ten minutes early to be exact and it went incredibly well. My interviewer turned out to have an aunt who was the New York Vogue’s editor in the 1950’s and a mother who collected countless pieces by the late and ever so missed Yves Saint Laurent. We talked about fashion the whole time with no mention of literature whatsoever (applying for an English degree!) and she stated that it was a good interview that I should be proud of and that she was sure I would be offered a place at the university. I was thrilled!
Also expect new post coming your way this weekend featuring a piece from the Kardashian Collection for Lipsy! The dress just arrived in the mail today and it is gorgeous! Looking forward to sharing the look I have planned with you all :]
Have a great day everyone!
