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 😉

Took my favourite new tee on a little outing to the city the other day. This T-Shirt so easy to just throw on over leggings paired with trainers but also looks like you made some effort with the hard-to-miss sequin asssss! I’m in love with it. I also spiced up this outfit with some hair studs and a choker made from recycled ribbon.

Summer is approaching .. (well actually… Spring comes first – but lets just skip that part (even though i do love the easter bunny) and let’s pretend that the sun is on it’s way!). Summer for me represents one prominent thing in fashion… prints. What print is gonna be the big one this year? I’ve started early!

Love this matching set. I’ve always been a fan of matchy pieces and this comes with a difference! The long, split, skirt and loose, tie up crop top is sexy yet cool. Super boho and perfect for a holiday/festival! I’d buy this now and keep it in your closet until the sun shows it’s face – this style won’t be available for long! Even if you wanted to wear it now, you could definitely pull it off with some cowboy boots, an ovesized denim jacket and a trilby hat.

Purchase here…

This cloud playsuit may look like some funky lingerie/PJ set but it is indeed outerwear. And I think it is ADORABLE. SO unique and could definitely see myself wearing this with some boho jewellery, a long coat/jacket and a cool hat like the style above. Has a very festival vibe to it. I cannot WAIT to wear this!

It’s not often that you see me without my studded leather jacket, or my silver calf-length booties. Or even my Chanel suspenders. But sometimes you gotta chill out… and when I got sent the ‘Good For Nothing’ womens collection, that’s exactly what I did. And I still felt pretty fashion forward at the same time. Of course, I still added my own touches – such as my retro beret and signature neck tie. GFN clothing is all about the comfort – as well as looking pretty cool at the same time. Sticking with the neutral black, grey and white palette – the collection oozes modern, chilled-wear and a lil bit of British heritage. We like that!GFNwithouthairgfn8gfn2“Gate Keeper Cropped Sweat”

‘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.

I’m sorry i’ve been so distant in our relationship guys.. it’s not you .. its me. With all the craziness of the video being released, then being hacked and deleted (click for more info), then the stress of it being hacked and deleted, working out what to do – whilst doing gigs, and my laptop suddenly breaking there’s just been no time to blog this outfit that i put together for y’all and wore on Blue Peter last week. Click to watch our video here

This is definitely one of my favourite performance outfits yet – so cutesy but boy’d up a bit with my cropped leather and white creepers. Buy this EXACT outfit at the bottom of the post!!!!!! chanelruk8chanelruk7chanelruk4chanelruk5chanelruk3chanelruk2chanelruk1chanelruk
