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 have gone aboooove and beyond to get you honey’s a blog post. I’ve been really busy working *cough* .. and drinking cocktails and frying my buns in the sun… aaaand eating a load of Easter eggs. Anyway, short and sweet look book shot by my girl Georgia Petrou on film. I pimped out my baker-boy hat with my fave 80’s YSL brooch, slung a monochrome jacket (by my new boutique store find – AOC Edit) over a Carhartt dungarees and thew on on some dirty air forces. But I think it works. I’ll let the people decide.

So this outfit post was werrrrked around my chic new, boyfriend shirt from House of Sunny. The most perrrfect lemon yellow for spring. I wanted to keep it all black underneath to avoid distraction from the shirt. Of course the classic Chanel suspenders came out along with a lace body and split, jersey flares. In my opinion – jersey flares look best with trainers – don’t be afraid! Shop the look at the end of the post xo

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!

Are we still allowed to say Happy New Year? Whatevr. I’m saying it.

January for me has been momentous in many ways. Hence the lack of blog. I’m also a year older so celebrations have been keeping me busy. One celebration I’m actually blogging about now. My oldest and bestest friend Holly treated me a belated birthday treat, taking me for cream tea at ‘Forest’ above Selfridges and then to the HAIR exhibition at Somerset House. IMG_0216

I was in HEAVEN. The HAIR exhibition featured a mock up Chanel runway, endless issues of Vogue and deep insight into fashion shows over the years.

…We then had a very chic and relaxing stay at the K-West hotel & spa in Shepherds Bush. The K-West used to be a recording studio once upon a time and keeps to it’s ‘funky’ roots with a sassy design and modern features. Not to mention we had the best night sleep we’ve had in a while…

1. Bathroom at K West

We were given the huge Embassy suite for our stay (bed as big as your goals) – but my favourite part was the spa. The spa at the K-West actually has a SNOW paradise. So cool (literally).  It’s the only place in the UK to cater for the ‘hot/cold therapy’ alternating between steam and ice environments.

1. Snow Paradise - K Spa

How brill is that?! Admittedly I only lasted a minute in the snow room as I’m a huge wimp but trés exhilarating for sureThe other spa features included a huge hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam room, and chill out cabins. Whata dream.

FACT: Winter is super great for chic, long coats and furry jackets but NOT great for all our cute tops and crops. 

So I got sent this lace, camisole from Goldie and whilst I absolutely loved it – it had me thinking ‘how can I show this off without having to drown it in a huge coat?’. Then I thought – ‘Ugh, I wish my furry roll neck jumper was cropped so i could sling it over the top to keep warm but still see the cute top’ … bingggggggo. LETS CUT THE JUMPER! And here were our results.. cute right?

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.
