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

Okay – so here’s a post I thought I would NEVER do. Ball-gowns, prom dresses?

Now, I’m certainly not your glitz and glam, floor length, diamanté, demure kinda gal. I wore a basic, clean cut, emerald dress from Topshop Unique to my own prom.  The thought of wearing something sparkly and encrusted with diamonds has always cringed me out and screamed ‘tacky’. However, I was forced to try something different last week.

I know what you’re thinking… why are we talking about proms in SEPTEMBER? Well, it was the last episode of my TV series and there was a prom being held at the college. As soon as I was told I had to get a prom dress I thought ‘Great, now’s the time to step out of my comfort zone and try something new!’. I mean – when would I ever get the chance to have a prom again? I wanted to have fun with it and see what it was like to be one of those girls who go dress shopping for the most outrageous dress and for it to be like a scene from ‘Say yes to the dress’.  And as it was going to be on TV – you HAVE to go all out in order for it to be noticed.

Here’s 3 dresses I found on my search to become Prom Queen. Maybe you’re reading this just for fun or even to draw inspiration for your prom next year – it’s never too early to search for the perfect dress.Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

This dress is from Cinderella’s Prom in my hometown of Brighton. This is PURE prom in my opinion but I loved the Chloe vibes it had going on.  Had a real ethereal feel to it and fitted like a glove.

The next dress is actually from respected Indian designer Rocky Star. Obviously on the more expensive side – Beyonce, and the Pussycat Dolls to name a few has worn Rocky Star pieces. I can’t imagine many people have worn these dresses to proms – more like red carpets.

I adore the deep split to this dress and encrusted waistline. Definitely a more high fashion option. 

Last up we have iconic prom label – Jovani purchased from Dress 2 Party. With a hefty price tag, prom go-ers still fail to resist these dresses and I can see why. To add to this glamorous look I had the help of amazing make up artist Laura Louise and hair stylist Steph from ZXAAR HAIR. Click their names to be directed to their sites. You may want to book them for your prom next year 😉

‘Scuse my insta-quality pics but i’m on tour and couldn’t fit the proper blogger camera in my case! Now i’m not usually a t-shirt kinda girl but I seem to be loving the slogan tees at the mo.. by the looks of my camera roll. These are a couple i’ve been rockin’ this week.. the Lionel Richie one being a clear winner in my eyes.

You can buy these exact looks at the bottom of the page! And i’ve also attached some other tee’s i’m loving.
