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 think this is the post everybody has been waiting for on ‘It’s Thursday Tho?’.  Am I right?

The day HAS ARRIVED – I have my very OWN collection available to buy on www.betsybluefashion.com

This is NOT merch. These are genuine items that I have designed with every type of girl in mind. You don’t have to be a fan of mine to purchase these clothes. These are designed for EVERYONE. The theme of the line is cowboy/western inspired. There are tracksuits with guns ‘n’ roses graphics, lace t-shirt dresses with edgy prints, mesh bodysuits, lace up party dresses and jumpsuits, star print gym wear, star print dresses, lace bardot tops and cool AF cut out tee’s with slogans such as ‘A Cowboy Stole My Heart’. There’s also HANDBAGS with the cutest cowboy boot charms! _t5c1045_v2

A LOT of hard work has been put into this collection; with my filming schedule it was hard but I was determined to release before Christmas. So there’s no excuse to not treat yourselves to some gorgeous outfits for all the Christmas festivities and parties that approach. Or even whack some of the items on your Christmas lists or buy for your friends and family! They are guaranteed to adore. Each package comes with a custom postcard.

Here are some photos of the LINE!

We shot the edgy campaign shoot on a real LIFE Western village outside London (FUN FACT: Johnny Depp filmed ‘Finding Neverland’ there!). A massive shoutout to our incredible hair and makeup team Charlie Wilkinson and Abby Rose and Tomo Kembery on the camera!_t5c0897_t5c1137_v2_t5c1195_t5c1267_t5c0742Follow the brand new instagram page for my brand at: @betsybluefashion

    So I just wanted to talk about a campaign I was recently introduced. The campaign called ‘I Can Never Be Too Much’ is for design house Georg Jensen and stars five strong females who have defied conventions and risen to the tops of their industries. A completely different approach to design brand advertising – it’s so revitalising to see a campaign video with a serious message as opposed pouts and poses.

    I think this Georg Jensen campaign is particularly significant  at this moment in time – with the current news such as Donald Trump’s presidential reign and the on-going fight for equal wages as well as many other problems us women face all over the world due to simply being stereotyped not as ‘able’ as men. Which is completely false obviously. susannebier_2

    Whilst researching into this campaign I also found out some interesting facts that you guys might want to take in:

    • Women are TOTALLY underrepresented in Parliament and Government – although 2016 is the record number for women in UK government, still only 29% are women.  Pretty poor for a ‘record number’. 
    • Women on average comprise about 30% of the workforce at the world’s largest tech companies, including Google, Microsoft, Twitter and Facebook.
    • Women are far more likely to be the victims of human trafficking – a HUGE 80% are girls. 
    • Female soldiers face rape and harassment – between one fifth and one half of female veterans were sexually harassed while on active duty, and women are more likely to leave with PTSD from rape than from actual fighting
    • Women overall are at a greater risk of rape and domestic violence – In fact, women between the ages of 15 and 44 are at a greater risk of experiencing rape or domestic violence than cancer, car accidents, war or malaria, according to the World Bank. And as much as 70% of women worldwide experience violence during their life.

    Lets RAISE these percentages of women in the workplace, reduce the percentages of rape, trafficking and abuse (altogether – it’s just as abominable for a man to go through that) and start making the world more aware that men and women are EQUAL and just as ABLE as each other. Let’s make more campaigns like Georg Jensen’s viral and show everyone these incredible women doing these ‘usually’ stereotyped ‘man-orientated’ jobs. These strong woman have showed that you can defy conventions and rise to the top of your game!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I have been waiting SO long to give you all this post! Here’s the story – my lovely friend ( and coolest person ever) AND mega successful stylist Vix Adams had her bag hand-painted with this insane, wacky, Miley design (haha). It was love at first sight and I needed my Louis bag painted ASAP. I’d been having visions of cowboy illustrations (WAY BEFORE THE JEREMY SCOTT MOSCHINO SHOW MAY I ADD) and knew that’s what I wanted on there. Anyway, Vix hooked me up with the miraculously talented Charlie Sman who painted the incredible design on to my beloved Louis Vuitton bag. AND I HAVE NO REGRETS! This is her website where you can check out her many talents and illustrations. http://charliesman.com – if you want a cool print on a leather jacket, an illustration on your trainers or a special design you want on your handbag then get in touch with her! With Charlie’s quirky ideas and incredibly talented hand – she will paint anything on anything for you! I’ve attached photos of her other work as well as my bag!

    These are just a couple of Charlie’s illustrations – my favourite is Anna Wintour, I NEED it in my home!

    Not only are Charlie’s illustrations to-die-for but her home is also SO KITSCH chic! I just had to take some snaps.

    So if you follow me on the old Instagram I’m sure you’ll know how much I LOVE the HOOK LDN sunglasses. The heavens opened and the sun beamed through when these sunglasses came into my life – which is pretty much an oxymoron seeing as they’re meant to keep the sun out of your eyes. But whatever, they’re great.

    Lets hope I don’t leave any of these chic frames on the District line.

    edit-0805

    The amazing team who created this brand initially come from the music industry. They were inspired by pop culture ultimately bringing their love of music and fashion together to create these sleek/edgy frames. Perfect for ‘It’s Thursday Tho?’ !!!

    edit-0792edit-0775

    The frames are sold online (click here) and in Harvey Nichols at a pretty decent price. FENDI lookin’ with a Michael Kor’s price. What more could you wish for?edit-0683edit-0598edit-0609 These white sunnies are called ‘Clique White Marble’

    So here’s a little shopping tip for all you fashionistas. I love sharing a good old shopping secret with you all! On Sunday I took a trip to Rokit vintage store in Brick Lane for a little shopping spree! Londons flooded with vintage stores but theres only actually a selected few worth going to that isn’t just full of junk – Rokit being one of them. They have locations spread all over London but Brick Lane is actually blessed with two stores on the same street. Here’s a sneak peak of what to expect inside the store and what I bought! I looooove it!
