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 😉

Have ya missed me? I thought I’d do a pretty casual post for you all, something you’re able to copy yourself and easily purchase from the high street. But still keeps you looking like the top dolllla, gold hermes birkin that you are and deserve to be of course.

To make this look stand out – I embellished my basic (but still pretty cool) Flash Gordon tee with these giant gold safety pins. DIY isn’t just for men <3

How much do you love this headband? Adding a big statement headband takes your outfit from basic to Beyonce.

Nabbed this gorgeous cardi from Goldie in the sale (£25 bargain!) and added some faux fur wrist cuffs for that bit extra. AND Look how well these pants fit! Currently in love with these skin-tight metallic trousers from new season Glamorous!

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.

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.

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!
