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

Have ya missed me? I thought I’d do a pretty casual post for you all, something you’re able to copy yourself and easily purchase from the high street. But still keeps you looking like the top dolllla, gold hermes birkin that you are and deserve to be of course.

To make this look stand out – I embellished my basic (but still pretty cool) Flash Gordon tee with these giant gold safety pins. DIY isn’t just for men <3

How much do you love this headband? Adding a big statement headband takes your outfit from basic to Beyonce.

Nabbed this gorgeous cardi from Goldie in the sale (£25 bargain!) and added some faux fur wrist cuffs for that bit extra. AND Look how well these pants fit! Currently in love with these skin-tight metallic trousers from new season Glamorous!

Happy BLOG day! AND a Happy Birthday to my boyfriend who turned 21 on Sunday. To celebrate, we checked into the immaculate Park Plaza Hotel in Westminster followed by a truck load’a food and a suave dinner overlooking the thames. The best part about checking into a hotel room is that nerve wracking/exciting moment when you slot your keycard in and open the door to the COMPLETE unknown. The excitement for what your room is going to look like is overwhelming. Having checked into about 300 hotels in the past couple of years together – the novelty never seems to ware off! Luckily we opened our room door to the chicest room with the most spectacular view of THE Big Ben himself and was only a matter of minute before there was a knock at the door with a big chocolate (Matilda style) cake, macaroons and a plateful of goodies. Hospitality at it’s finest. Here is my little photo journal of our stay. No comments necessary – just simplicity and chicness.

It’s not often that you see me without my studded leather jacket, or my silver calf-length booties. Or even my Chanel suspenders. But sometimes you gotta chill out… and when I got sent the ‘Good For Nothing’ womens collection, that’s exactly what I did. And I still felt pretty fashion forward at the same time. Of course, I still added my own touches – such as my retro beret and signature neck tie. GFN clothing is all about the comfort – as well as looking pretty cool at the same time. Sticking with the neutral black, grey and white palette – the collection oozes modern, chilled-wear and a lil bit of British heritage. We like that!GFNwithouthairgfn8gfn2“Gate Keeper Cropped Sweat”

I wanted to post something with a difference – something I felt was a little more personal. Whilst sorting through my old laptop, I came across hundreds of old photographs. Some hilarious, some embarassing and some surprisingly cute. It made me realise just how much changes in such a short space of time. I haven’t been on this planet for particularly long but in that time my appearance and style has varied. Even from one year to the next – it’s shocked me how much I’ve changed.  I’m sure you guys have the same reaction when you look back at old photos… Like, WHY did anyone let me go out the house looking like that?! haha. I would love to see some throwbacks from you guys, tweet them to me! And just so everyone’s clear, It’s super hard to find exact year after year photo but the photos are in age order obviously!

Enjoy xo

First of all I’d just like to say a massive thanks to one of my fans Emelene Kennedy for the cutest artwork of me in some of the outfits featured on this site and my instagram (@betsy_oty). You are truly talented!

photoMoving on – this is a post I’ve always wanted to do! I wanted to share with you some items in my wardrobe that I treasure.  I had a lot of fun doing a personal photo-shoot with these lovely pieces – they were great models! (haha)reupload3reup4Moschino Biker Bag

fave14fave15This jacket is particular special to me as I actually hand painted and embellished it with studs and glitter.

fave20fave19My beloved Chanel Boy Bag – I spent years saving up for this and finally purchased on my 18th birthday.

fave10fave11I found these vintage ‘TWINS’ boxer shorts in a vintage factory in West London and I CANNOT to wear them one day. I think they deserve a stage appearance. 

fave13fave12This is probably top of my favourite clothing items ever owned. I searched high and low for one of these for years and finally brought it from a private seller. I love it so much that I wore it for my first music video with Only The Young for our debut single ‘I Do’. 

fave16fave17Jeffrey Campbell lace up shoes. A firm favourite for years. Have had many appearances including my judges houses TV appearance.

Ahead of our debut single ‘I Do’ which is now released August 7th (due to delays at Calais resulting in our CD’S unable to get to anyone!!! BAH) – we performed on ITV’s Lorraine. For you international readers that’s the UK equivalent of Good Morning America etc etc… Click here to watch the interview

Obviously I had to wear something supaa cool but with no time to scour for outfits at the moment as we are so busy I raided Beyond Retro. And boy I’m happy I did!! I found this incredible Moschino-esque, thick, bomber jacket with (my fave) gold embroidery and bliiiiiing.  I’m pretty sure it’s couture. I WISHHH it had a label in it so I knew where it was from! I also found two insane party gowns which i’m sure you’ll see me in pretty soon and my new favourite cow(girl) belt pictured here. Beyond Retro is very hit and miss… you either walk out completely empty handed or empty walletED. This time was the latter. Lets not forget my badass, calf length heels either from Public Desire. I now have a whole wardrobe devoted to Public Desire and I can’t wait to show you all their styles. You will be shoe crushin’ for sure. Links for the rest of the outfit are featured at the bottom of the page.IMG_5937 IMG_5943IMG_5946IMG_5968IMG_5971IMG_5984IMG_5987IMG_5990

The boots are called ‘Sage Caged Calf Length Heels’ < click to purchase
