I have been so cruel to all you readers lately with my lack of blog – I have been all over the place! I haven’t actually updated you all since I went to LA.. I’m sure you’ll forgive me though when you see these efffff off incredible booties and personalised camo jacket that I’m bringing your way! 

Lets start with the jacket – the incredible people over at @icecream_and_candy (insta store) made this personalised jacket and I’m obsessed. You guys can design your name and put what ever you want on it and they will make the magic happen. There seems to be more of Disney theme going on at their store but I wanted to break it up as I’m kind of over Mickey Mouse at the mo. He’s too accessible. Not really playin’ hard to get is he? So I went for a bit of a rocker vibe with a gold, sequin eagle and I looove it.

THE SHOES! AH, the gorgeous people at 5H PR sent me over these HAVVA MUSTAFA angels!. I’ve been after them for time. They are a bottle green colour with intricate little studded stars on the toes and a killer slogan at the top. Potentially the most unique pair of shoes I’ve had the pleasure of wearing. I can’t wait to rock more of Havva Mustafa’s styles.

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.

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 😉

Following from Monday’s post here is another look including shoes from the FLAWLESS Terry De Havilland. These gorgeous goldies are from his actual couture collection online. They are the heel form of my gold wedges. Honestly the detail on these shoes are insane. I’m also wearing a jumper from Fan Club Clothing – we all know how perfect this jumper is for me. My love affair with cowboys jus’ keeps growing.

Hey babes’, I’ve had to come to terms lately with the fact that I’m only going to be able to post when I’m able to. If that makes any sense at all – haha. Everything is crazy at the moment filming a brand new TV show for a pretty big channel and filming is everyday! By the time I grab my blogging camera these days, it’s always bloooody dark outside. Anyway, I’ve found two AMAZING new brands that I love. The first being Terry De Havilland. His footwear is remarkable and tick all three of the most important boxes – UNIQUE, MAJOR HIGH QUALITY AND ACTUALLY COMFORTABLE! I’m serious. If you keep up with my instagram, I shared a photo of my TDH gold wedges that I wore in Barcelona… I walked around the city in them all day with no hassle. This shoe collection is so beautiful and each pair are so insanely individual I had to have them all!! The shoes I’m wearing in this post is Terry De Havilland’s collection with ASOS (see – even asos know!). I also discovered a brand called Fan Club Clothing. They produce really cute slogan stuff but not ya basic slogans! It’s all pretty retro (which is perfect for moi) and american themed.  Full details of this look is at the bottom of the post!maccheesemacandcheese7macandcheese8macandcheese1macandcheese6macandcheese5macandcheese4macandcheese2Shades – VOW London, Tee – Fan Club Clothing, Skirt – Topshop, Shoes – Terry De Havilland X asos, Choker – Zara.

A couple of weeks ago I did a shoot with the ever-so-on-trend, fashion brand Nobody’s Child.

For the shoot I completely styled myself in their new collection. Nobody’s Child focuses on the basic needs for everyday clothing with that fashion edge. The clothes are simple yet beautiful and made to flatter the body.

ALSO – Visit their website for the full interview and details on all the clothing I’m wearing in these shots. Click here.
