Those great whites they have big teeth, hope they bite you.


Before I took these photos I had shall we say maybe a 'minor breakdown' one that occurred again just this weekend. Whereby I realised my wardrobe is FULL off black clothes.
I packed for my boyfriends this weekend and every piece was either black or white. Luckily I've started to be more drawn to actual colours. I think I am always trying to slowly add pieces into my wardrobe that make a break between the black but with Spring on the way really I'm going to try; not even just buying new pieces but customising old pieces to bring them to life shall we say, in colour form. 
I love pieces that add slight accents or are more of neutral colour to black like the top here. This outfit I actually wore to London fashion festival (read my post here) I loved it so much I wanted to snap some photos of it for 'me' blog. 
 The outfit ties nicely together of all the things im really loving at the moment, mesh, silver (which has tbf been a firm favourite for a long time) and dusky purple collided with this whole grunge feel.

 The shoes, shall we talk about the shoes?? I've bloody adored these for ages (since Christmas to be exact) I just haven't really had the opportunity to show them off since then, or the occasion to to be honest! I have a big deal with that wearing clothes for the first time on an outing but anyway more on that another time. 

 Okay lastly I'll touch on the mesh, I love this whole deal with mesh and I buying this dress for LFWFESTIVAL I knew that it wouldn't be the only time, this piece is so versatile to just throw over the top of anything really just to play up to that layering trend.

London Fashion Week Festival


This is a delayed post I apologise, sorting it out I realised that it happened 2 weeks ago?! 
I've been really busy, and this week has been a little crazy. So thats why it got pushed back so much. 
Anyway 2 weeks ago I went to London Fashion Week Festival. It was the first time I went so I didn't really know what to expect. This year it had moved to a new location (previously being at Somerset House) I was a little upset to have not visited there but this venue (in no comparison to the first as you know this was my first time)
 The venue was extremly cool, very urban but also clean and keeping to that luxury feel. Even down to the food I called it 'blogger food' I mean avocado on toast? You can't get more blogger-y than that.

The event in all was mainly based around shopping which was surprising! I expected more talks and showcases an exhibition type feel. 
We did book to go to a show I say we because I went with the lovely Heath Chambers from 100 Ways to 30 as so nice to finally meet her after a long time of chatting, we had a such a laugh on the day and something I really love is hanging about with a blogger, taking photos of everything and of each other  because thats just what we do, so its really nice to hang around with someone like minded. 

The catwalk show we chose was Trend, as on the day we wasn't too sure on the designer. 
Trend was a combination of designer pieces placed into trend categories. Florals frills and cold shoulder. All hosted by Laura Jackson which was a lovely surprise, having watched her on the brits after party a couple of days before. 
The trends were beautiful too so dainty and elegant. I've hugely brought into the frilled trend already. And started building my wardrobe up for spring nicely! 

I discovered on the day so many cool pieces, brands and exciting bits! but 2 brands in particular caught my eye on the day so I just HAD to talk about their pieces and take a million and one photos, not all included in the post (obvs) otherwise you'd never return to my blog again. 

The first: Sarah Baily I could spot the metallic colours and leopard print pieces a mile off, I was like a hawk. So coming round to the stand I couldn't wait to ask to take photos, because honestly I wanted ev-er-y-thing. And honestly the pieces looked so familiar little did I know after going on Instagram a few days later they were worn by the beauts Confetti Crowd. The combination of colours and patterns was just so up my street I can't even explain! Oh and stars did I mention she had a star pieces too! 
Honestly the loveliest lady and so interesting to hear she just stumbled into Accessories! Make sure you check out her website because honestly it just has all the life!

And next, Florence Bridge. And she was just awesome (did I just say awesome) because she had pink hair and was yet another designer just so lovely to chat to! 
Straightaway her bags caught my eye she told me they were called 'The Ice Cube bag' I have to say I was even more thrilled to see she sells triangle versions of those too, which are equally so very cool. 
The bag which you'll see pictured below I loved the whole idea of, I mean to start off with it was metallic silver so need I say more but I also loved the fact you could wear it any way and clip lots of accessories onto it, like pom poms or such basically anywhere and everywhere you like on the bag. 
Her clothing is also massively worth a look, the pieces are gorgeous!! I wanted to squeal quite a bit when I seen her super fluffy fur coats honestly they looked so cosy!  www.florencebridge.com


And last but not least I put together a mini LFWfestival video which is sort of a short blog/mini montage of the day if you fancy watching that its down below! Enjoy! 

That is all from me for now, i'll be back next week with an outfit post! 
Until next time take care!

Her lips are the sweetest like honey and milk | Outfit Post

Me and Jay took these photos a few weeks ago now on a trip into town. 10 seconds from the last photo being taken the heavens opened and it tipped it down, now if thats not luck then I don't know what is.

This outfit I picked up in a little mini Zara Haul I did a few weeks ago, I saw it in the shop first but it had a little lipstick mark on the neck so I took one look at the queue and thought better of it. A few days later I was browsing on the website and spotted it again for 5.99.
I'm massively into layering at the moment much like I mentioned in my outfit post, so this dress was perfect little addition to my wardrobe. 
The t-shirt I'm wearing underneath came with it, but what I love is that it detaches so you can pretty much layer up underneath anything you like. 
A black midi dress, is something I've been after in my wardrobe for a while- call me basic, but they are so easy to style! 

Last Friday I went to London Fashion Week Festival so I'll have a post on that! Along with possibly some outfit photos so make sure you look out for that! Until next time, take care!

My picks from LFW: Illustrated


I love to talk about London Fashion Week, its one of the Fashion weeks that I feel I connect with most. If you're an avid follower of my blog you'll know that I talk about every season at LFW just because you know, I wanna.
 I always pull my favourite collections together and pick pieces I've loved on the catwalk and talk about them. 
Well that is what I'm going to do/ have done. Yet this time with a little twist. 
You may remember a few months now was it? I did a 'Series' shall we call it called 'Inspired by Bloggers' and chose my favourites for that season and illustrated them? Well that's exactly what I've done for this one so it has a little twist on it. Illustrating though I'm not massively amazing at it, I love to do. I think I've found through school and university I finally found 'my style' and I just think its nice to do. Along with collating and sort of collaging this all together. So without further a do, enjoy! I really hope you do! 

 The first one I have to talk about is Henry Holland as he is ultimately one of my favourite designers and has been for many many years. I felt like this collection was toned down in a way for HOH it wasn't as colourful or loud as usually expected. But for me this is probably 'one of' my favourite collections he's produced. It still has this element of HOH in it, its fun, its cheeky and a little bit naughty shall I say? Down to the slogans, which can I say I love! - I kinda need that Bitches hoodie! The whole feel to the collection is very cowboy-esque it has a real western feel to it from the flared trousers which I NEED, man those flares.. to the stars and fringing which I will never say no to. I can't really say its one of my favourite styles to lust after but I love the classic HOH vibe its been given. With toned down colours and popping prints this was a collection I very much enjoyed seeing.

I watched Topshop Unique on the live feed on Instagram the day it was on, Sunday I think? And immediately showed my admiration for all the mustard tones I could see coming out onto the catwalk. Then when the Orange fur Coat came down the catwalk I was like 'OMG' YES
This whole collection had a flash of nostalgia it was very throwback 70's/ 90's sort of vibe. I completely fell in love with the graphic printed sweaters as this is something I've been wearing a lot of lately. Then mixed with ditsy prints and deck chair stripes is a real mix of seasons which is a real ode to the British weather which I think designers often play up to. It gives the option to layer up which I think is really nice.

I've said this time and and time again every year I look forward to seeing what Preen bring to the table because it is always new and so fresh; I feel like whenever they bring a new collection out I've never really seen anything like it before. 
What they seem to be doing SO well at the moment is teaming this real ladylike, feminine feel to the outfits yet still roughing it up and giving it a real edge. Which is what Preen always go for with their collection.
Ruffles were big in this show, they made a lot of the pieces a real statement, the layering and the whole overall silhouette to the shape worked so well. One of my favourite bits about the collection was the little details the little words on the models earrings and around the belts. One of those details that really brought the collection together and fit really nicely with their last collection. I have to admit too that I'm really warming round to gingham. (I went a bit crazy on the trend maybe a year ago, and hated the return) but now once that's out my system its really growing on me and I love the punk vibe it has about it here.

I don't actually think I've ever spoke about Versus Versace before which is quite surprising because I have a real love for Versace. This collection caught my eye when looking at the collections for LFW more than likely because the whole collection is ultimately black and that is basically what my whole wardrobe contains right now so straightaway I loved the colouring. The collection was followed by more (still dark) but coloured hues such as warm Burgundy's, flashes of pink and cobalt blue which are actually 2 of my favourite colours right now! amongst the black which really made the pieces stand out. I loved this collection down to the detailing with the branded chokers around the neck and the big details, the sporty sexy vibe and the real high drama strong look to the collection. 
My favourite pieces from this collection have to be the jacket with the blue pockets below and the fluffy black jumper paired with the choker.

I've always had a little place in my heart for Burberry and again like Versace this isn't usually a collection I pick out. I actually seen Gok Wan tweet about it and thought oh I'll check it out see what its all about and was pleased I did. This collection is SO classic, so true to British Fashion Industry. The textures, the detail and the layering was completely on point. I loved the over sized cuffs and the lace being layer over the stripes, and the stripes oh the stripes. I couldn't say no really could I?? 
My favourite piece was the black lace dress layered over the stripes (below) that piece you'll definitely see me rocking into A\W next year. Alongside that I really loved the ruffles and big details on the blouses so very feminine and they made a real statement.
