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! Direct link to purchase the entire outfit at the bottom.Pic Jointer

Admittedly the choker and jeans are both sold out but I’ve found a similar choker I LOVE and a similar selection of jeans. CLICK the pic to buy!

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

LOVE a novelty bag and this bag is certainly that with a high fashion edge – and guess who loves it just as much as me? VOGUE! 1020-1

I saw this amazing Pingu collaboration with Rodnik and knew I had to grab one straight away. Luckily Nicole Levy PR had one on hand to PING over. Pardon the pun.

Lets face it – we all love Pingu. And we all love PVC.. this jacket is from H&M’s new collection and is so affordable! PVC is just all that more noticeable than leather. Cami – Pull&Bear, jeans – vintage, choker – La Nuit London, Shoes – Ego.

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 😉

Happy Saturday! After a long seven months of full-on filming, I have finally wrapped my series. Theres been laughs, tears and a hell of a lot of drama but it’s all over for now and my blog will finally be back in action. This means more outfit posts than ever!

In between the madness of wrapping up my series, I managed to enjoy just a little bit of fashion week! I was invited to the insane Julien Macdonald show to start off my shows and it did naaaat disappoint.collageimg_5394

With Hailey Baldwin opening and closing the show it was set to be sassy from the word go. Here were some of my favourite looks.

I attended some amazing other shows but we would be here all day with the photos and comments on how much I loved everything from the zippers on the jackets to the lining of the shoes. I quite frankly appreciate everything when it comes to fashion week. Here are some of my favourite looks from my LFW wardrobe.

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.

Sorry my posting has been a bit wishy washy! Everything will be on track on Thursday. Hallelujah! Theres just too much going on at the moment! ahhhhh.

So here’s a post that has been due for a loooooong time. CHOKERS. I admittedly have way too many. They just make every outfit look great right? These are a selected few from my bundle at home. I think a choker wardrobe sounds like a plan.

Anyway, every choker is still available in store. I’m so sick of saying ‘choker’……

One thing I don’t like to do is post the same outfits on my blog as I do on my instagram. I like to keep it all fresh and interesting for you guys. Also – no one wants an essay long caption that takes up half their timeline when scrolling through instagram. That’s what my blog is for – an essay letting you all know the exact details of where my outfit is from. This week i’ve been feeling pretty sassy and have been running around the capital going to lots of events. Here are my looks from the past week as well as where you can purchase!

This snazzy little outfit was worn to the Braid Bar X Illustrated People event. A pretty cool event at the Illustrated People headquartres – girls were getting their hair braided, printing tees and of course eating the most delicious cupcakes from Conscious Cook. I’m wearing a sequined two piece jacket and crop set available to purchase in the links below. On top of this I’ve worn my most fave jacket by brand Karizma London where you can purchase from WE KOKO. Paired with new Topshop jeans and my Skinny Dip clutch!

dress1This outfit was for a private event I attended. Hair and makeup as always by the impeccable Kristina Theodoris at the HD salon and Charlie Wilkinson. This was a very special dress as it is from the Jessica Choay exclusive collection. It is completely stunning and feels like a dream on me. I paired the jacket with a DIY choker, Chanel necklace, classic biker jacket and KILLER heels from Public Desire. 

RAFG7033This outfit was my SAILOR inspired look that I rocked to the Designer Car Boot event at Brewer Street CP. The shirt is from new online store Unique 21. It sells great stuff so definitely keep an eye out on their website! My rose gold anchor necklace is one of my favourite things ever. It is by designer Katie Mullally Silver and I am obsessed!sailor

During my visit to the new Smashbox studios where my face was BEAT by the most amazing makeup – I took full advantage of the amazing camera lights and took a few pics! You definitely need to check out the studios – you can get all your makeup done and all you have to do is buy £30 worth of makeup in return. Make sure you tell them who recommended you 😉 My choker is again – the incredible Jessica Choay, my top from Boohoo, my fur gillet from a designer concession on the Oxford St. Topshop and belt from Beyond Retro.

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.
