Holaaaa! I am loving my new (very polite) tee from Adolescent Clothing. If you want to spread a message – wear it on a t-shirt. Simple.

I’m also sporting my most favourite item EVER. My new bag from Vlieger and Vandam – a Dutch brand who I’ve known about for years. Their bags are ME to a T – beautifully made to the highest quality and edgy as hell. I can’t believe I’ve only just got my hands on this tote but it is never going to leave my arm.

Link to purchase the outfit are at the bottom of the page!

I have gone aboooove and beyond to get you honey’s a blog post. I’ve been really busy working *cough* .. and drinking cocktails and frying my buns in the sun… aaaand eating a load of Easter eggs. Anyway, short and sweet look book shot by my girl Georgia Petrou on film. I pimped out my baker-boy hat with my fave 80’s YSL brooch, slung a monochrome jacket (by my new boutique store find – AOC Edit) over a Carhartt dungarees and thew on on some dirty air forces. But I think it works. I’ll let the people decide.

So this outfit post was werrrrked around my chic new, boyfriend shirt from House of Sunny. The most perrrfect lemon yellow for spring. I wanted to keep it all black underneath to avoid distraction from the shirt. Of course the classic Chanel suspenders came out along with a lace body and split, jersey flares. In my opinion – jersey flares look best with trainers – don’t be afraid! Shop the look at the end of the post xo

Today was officially the first day of the year where I could go out without a jacket and not freeze to death. And guess what? I WORE A JACKET. But it’s okay because this jacket is my statement piece of the month and its totally fab. Fur, denim and studs… what more could’a lady want?

I know some may shy away double denim, cringe at double denim and some would rather sacrifice themselves to a pack of komodo dragons than wear double denim. But I like it – so here’s a whole blog post on me wearing double denim. And of course a cute Guess tee, some Simmi.com (sizzling’) shoes and an oversized choker!

Are we still allowed to say Happy New Year? Whatevr. I’m saying it.

January for me has been momentous in many ways. Hence the lack of blog. I’m also a year older so celebrations have been keeping me busy. One celebration I’m actually blogging about now. My oldest and bestest friend Holly treated me a belated birthday treat, taking me for cream tea at ‘Forest’ above Selfridges and then to the HAIR exhibition at Somerset House. IMG_0216

I was in HEAVEN. The HAIR exhibition featured a mock up Chanel runway, endless issues of Vogue and deep insight into fashion shows over the years.

…We then had a very chic and relaxing stay at the K-West hotel & spa in Shepherds Bush. The K-West used to be a recording studio once upon a time and keeps to it’s ‘funky’ roots with a sassy design and modern features. Not to mention we had the best night sleep we’ve had in a while…

1. Bathroom at K West

We were given the huge Embassy suite for our stay (bed as big as your goals) – but my favourite part was the spa. The spa at the K-West actually has a SNOW paradise. So cool (literally).  It’s the only place in the UK to cater for the ‘hot/cold therapy’ alternating between steam and ice environments.

1. Snow Paradise - K Spa

How brill is that?! Admittedly I only lasted a minute in the snow room as I’m a huge wimp but trés exhilarating for sureThe other spa features included a huge hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam room, and chill out cabins. Whata dream.

I think this is the post everybody has been waiting for on ‘It’s Thursday Tho?’.  Am I right?

The day HAS ARRIVED – I have my very OWN collection available to buy on www.betsybluefashion.com

This is NOT merch. These are genuine items that I have designed with every type of girl in mind. You don’t have to be a fan of mine to purchase these clothes. These are designed for EVERYONE. The theme of the line is cowboy/western inspired. There are tracksuits with guns ‘n’ roses graphics, lace t-shirt dresses with edgy prints, mesh bodysuits, lace up party dresses and jumpsuits, star print gym wear, star print dresses, lace bardot tops and cool AF cut out tee’s with slogans such as ‘A Cowboy Stole My Heart’. There’s also HANDBAGS with the cutest cowboy boot charms! _t5c1045_v2

A LOT of hard work has been put into this collection; with my filming schedule it was hard but I was determined to release before Christmas. So there’s no excuse to not treat yourselves to some gorgeous outfits for all the Christmas festivities and parties that approach. Or even whack some of the items on your Christmas lists or buy for your friends and family! They are guaranteed to adore. Each package comes with a custom postcard.

Here are some photos of the LINE!

We shot the edgy campaign shoot on a real LIFE Western village outside London (FUN FACT: Johnny Depp filmed ‘Finding Neverland’ there!). A massive shoutout to our incredible hair and makeup team Charlie Wilkinson and Abby Rose and Tomo Kembery on the camera!_t5c0897_t5c1137_v2_t5c1195_t5c1267_t5c0742Follow the brand new instagram page for my brand at: @betsybluefashion

As many of you may know – I have been an ‘Evelina’ friend for about 2 years now. The Evelina is the children’s hospital in St Thomas’ Hospital, Westminster who treat children with all kinds of health conditions. It’s the UK’s leading hospital for paediatric heart services. The hospital treats children of all ages; from babies in the womb through to young adulthood. I absolutely love visiting the children and have tried to visit as often as I can – many children have been at the Evelina undergoing treatment for a while and it makes such a difference to their day to have a new face play with them, make them smile and even just talk to them. img_7539 It’s so rewarding. I also participate in fundraising ideas for the hospital. One of which (The Evelina London Sample Sale) is taking place on Friday!

The Evelina London sample sale consists of clothes donated by leading women’s fashion brand ‘Warehouse’. Every penny goes towards improving care for sick children at the Evelina London. Clothes are sample stock and sold at just £5 per item, meaning that shoppers can purchase a new winter wardrobe at a right bargain!

I was lucky enough to take the first peek through the items and take some photos to show you guys! I’ve photographed some of my favourite bits and my gosh – there is a lot! From thick winter coats to glitzy party dresses, you will be getting the best deal in town whilst supporting a great cause. If you like what you see from my photographs, then pop down to the Evelina on Friday and get your hands on some of these gorgeous garments. And of course – there’s bundles more than what’s pictured on here..! Every item sold will go towards improving care for sick children.. from life saving research and the latest medical equipment, to the little things that help make a stay in hospital less scary for young patients.

Friday 11th November, 10:30am – 2:30pm. Atrium, Evelina London Children’s Hospital, Westminster Bridge Road, London, SE1 7EH.  img_7586Coat and hat from the sample sale…love!img_7587img_7588img_7583Love this gold detail dress!img_7590img_7596img_7595img_7597img_7600img_7592img_7601…And I ADORE this drop-back, grey,chiffon maxi dress! Perfect for the christmas season.

With love from me and baby BB! My gorgeous little friend I met on my latest visit ximg_7557

FACT: Winter is super great for chic, long coats and furry jackets but NOT great for all our cute tops and crops. 

So I got sent this lace, camisole from Goldie and whilst I absolutely loved it – it had me thinking ‘how can I show this off without having to drown it in a huge coat?’. Then I thought – ‘Ugh, I wish my furry roll neck jumper was cropped so i could sling it over the top to keep warm but still see the cute top’ … bingggggggo. LETS CUT THE JUMPER! And here were our results.. cute right?

Tottttaaaallly crushing on this new brand I found on Instagram called iamkoko based in LA. They sent me two incredible pieces that they source from vintage stores and customise. One being this Guns ‘N’ Roses tee and the other being the most dreamiest Playboy t-shirt you’ve ever seen. I’m a sucker for some vintage Playboy and it certainly made me happy seeing that little surprise. Expect a blog post on that tee soooon! They also sent over some super cool chokers including this denim one. So dreaaammy. I based my outfit around the tee and accessorised with my incredible Duposh bag, my trusty oversized cardigan from glamorous and my knee highs! My Duposh bag is definitely one of my favourite accessories this season. Made in Amsterdam, they are blinged up to the max in the most classy and sophisticated way. Who wouldn’t want a bag with crystal FANGS? Vampire chic or what!Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset
