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.

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

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being invited to view the Arcadia AW collections.  Arcadia run Topshop, Topman, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Wallis, to name a few. I was obviously particularly excited to sneak a preview of the Topshop collection and I was NOT disappointed – however, Miss Selfridge delivered an incredible collection and Dorothy Perkins particularly surprised me. The only bad news is that we have to wait for aaaaages until these incred designs hit the stores!

TOPSHOPIMG_1784topshopIMG_1789IMG_1788Alot of the pieces from Topshop’s AW collection seems to theme around ‘pretty punk’. Grungy but still feminine and a LOT of pink. I absolutely love the sheer jumper with the bra underneath and all the writing over the pieces. I have always loved painted text on clothing.
IMG_1799topshop1Every now and then, Topshop release a KILLER pair of leather trousers. GRAB them whilst they are there otherwise you will definitely regret it.
topshop3I am absolutely loving the Carrie Bradshaw style shirt with the bralette over the top! Also another big trend that I’m seeing is the casual hoodie underneath a structured trench coat.
IMG_1808IMG_1809Massive vintage vibes! RED LEATHER, high waisted trousers with 70’s style belts… oh my.
IMG_1807IMG_1802IMG_1797So the dress above and below are definitely going to be in my wardrobe as soon as I can get my hands on them. I am absolutely in LOVE.
IMG_1810IMG_1814Fur bomber jacket… NEXT LEVELS. 
IMG_1813IMG_1815And finally, I’m going to end the Topshop collection with this period style dress. I have not stopped thinking about it since it first caught my eye. It is so elegant and the choker absolutely makes it.

miss selfridgearcadia1Miss Selfridge has certainly delivered. With a clear theme of either floral or B&W chic the items are creative and drop dead gorrrrgeous. P.S. I NEED THE BEIGE SANDALS BELOW. 
missselfridgemissselfridge2missselfridge1IMG_1749This coat absolutely screams 90’s/early 2000’s Miss Selfridge… I’m pretty certain they stocked this coat back then as it’s very familiar, maybe my mum had it or something… but I need it.
missselfridge5Love the cropped element of this leopard print fur coat!
IMG_1742Get in my wardrobe!!!!
arcadiamissselfridge3IMG_1772These shoes are also my favourite from the day.. the shirts below I’m absolutely loving too. CHIC AF.

dpIMG_1765Dorothy Perkins has COMPLETELY upped their game. With a whole new team of designers, I predict a whole new audience purchasing their clothes including myself. These Miu Miu inspired shoes stole the show from their collection and so did their other booties. IMG_1767IMG_1769Following Fendi’s lead – DP has also done a range of handbags with collectable/different style straps.

The past week has been MEGA hence no blog post last week (I’m so sorry it will NEVER happen again!!). This post shall definitely make up for it!

smudge4In my break during filming the other day I found this awesummm little vintage shop and ultimately found this JEM of a jacket. It might just be my favourite thing in my wardrobe at present. I paired it with a sheer leotard, a DIY choker and my new FURRY Stan Smith’s.  Links to items/similar options at the bottom!
smudge6smudge5smudgesmudge9smudge11smudge8IMG_2037As this jacket is a one-of-a-kindddd kinda thang I’ve linked a similar badge style jacket that’s available to order now.

So here’s a treat for ya! Whilst revamping ‘ItsThursdayTho?’ I wanted to add some unique pages that no other blogs provided. After some deep thinking, I came up with ‘Thursday Babes’ – a place where you could check out my friends/people you wouldn’t neccesarily know that also provide fashion inspiration. And of course, I know you all like a bit of eye candy. This page also showcases my tragic photography skills – but it is a nice change to be behind the camera. So my first Thursday Babe feature is none other than my best friend Joseph Barnes. Here he is in all his glory werrrking the classic Burberry trench coat in a not-so-classic maroon colour.

josephblog1josephblog4josephblog2josephblogJoseph is 21 and studying musical theatre in London. He loves Taylor Swift and his usual day to day wardrobe is pretty much all black errrrrything. But most importantly, above everythng- he knows the whole Regina George monologue from Mean Girls by heart. Please note this is not a dating website – although it’s beginning to sound like one. Haha.

milan1So, for my 19th birthday the opportunity arose to visit Milan for a weekend fuelled with partying, pizza, fashion and the Vivienne Westwood AW15 show. I mean.. I couldn’t possibly say no. Haha. Pretty much all my favourite things in one place.

In ode of the truck load of blog photos i’ve cultivated over this weekend, I will be posting tonight, tomorrow and of course Thursday (whilst hectically catching up with celeb Big Brother that I missed – team Katie or Perez?). Keep posted bunniesssss.
