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?

Everything you see minus shoes are Goldie – even the jumper I cropped is from their previous season coincidentally! I also got this deliiiiicious trench coat…

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!

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.

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.

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!

A common problem ladies always face in winter is HOW to look chic when you just want to wrap up in 1000 layers! There would have to be a VERY good excuse to catch me wearing a skirt in this weather. But I seemed to make an outfit work today that I was proud of AND kept the chills away – the ingredients to keep me warm simply included leather on leather. Yesterday morning I woke up to my favourite package – a HUGE package from Goldie London! As most of you know – I adore their brand, their clothing is sleek, on-trend and actually made really well – the quality of the clothing is faultless. Anyway, the package included a fair bit of leather items… which created this…new7

So, everything I’m wearing in this outfit post comes separately – I’m not sure if the garments were actually made to work together but I decided to take a risk and make a VERY leather outfit including a leather shirt AND leather overalls – and it really WORKS. Also, when you want to wear a co-ordinating block colour – for instance ‘all black’, you need to commit to it (this means NO other colours at all… not even jewellery in my opinion) and expect to stand out.

Tip:  A beanie ‘boys’ up and makes any outfit instantly casual. And keeps you warm of course.

One fact about me – I LOVE pyjamas. I’m always on the hunt for cute pjs, especially in winter when I’m practically living in loungewear. I waste so much money on different style pyjamas, I have 3 drawers full!  So I thought I would do a post on all the pjs I’m loving from Missguided that recently released their sleepwear and the cutest loungewear brand called South Beach.

This is dressing gown is life! It’s super lightweight but SO SOFT with lace features. Definitely a more delicate addition to my fluffy dressing gown collection. edit1edit3

 

Berryyyyy nice….edit4This berry coloured, satin, crop PJ set is to die for. Looks V expensive and is very flattering. For the more ‘chic’ nightwear. I would even wear this out – no lie. In summer though…obvs.

Baby BLUE Laceedit11Featuring Arrow! I ADORE this PJ set. Baby blue – my favourite colour of course and it’s SO soft. The flowers are a felt material and the rest of the design is mesh so it’s a pretty couture PJ set. This is from South Beach! Click this link to purchase – here.

Seeing stars!edit9My favourite of the bunch! STARS AND SATIN. This shirt and PJ set is so amazing. Again – I would wear the shirt out. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Featuring some (much loved) ears from Johnny Loves Rosie.

edit12These are SOOO cosy. I love gimicky slippers – you an never have enough and these literally feel like your feet are walking on clouds. From South Beach – they also do some bunny slippers that I really want!  Click here to purchase

I feel as though I begin almost every post trying to justify myself as to why I’m late with my posts! Excuse me or hate me for it – I’ve finally finished radio tour, signing tour AND headline tour! HOORAY and BOO (as I had such a good ol’ time). As I finished headline tour the night before London Fashion Week began I made a sensible decision to just completely eliminate myself and become invisible from this season’s fashion events … which include all the shows and parties of course. Call me crazy if you want. Fashion week is just A LOT of effort. With at least 3 shows a day and all the madness in between; you need dayyyyys of outfit planning, transport planning, makeup planning… the list goes on. You can’t do Fashion Week half hearted. However – I didn’t slip out of the fashion fiasco that easy. Of course I had to attend the Sorapol show. I made allowance for this one show as my dear friend Daniel Lismore is the creative director and founder of the flamboyant brand – and because the shows are always simply incredible. This current show definitely did not disappoint. I’ve attached pictures straight from the #FROW of the SS16 Sorapol show.betsy-blue-english-lfw-s-s-2016-sorapol-catwalk-show-arrivals-london-september-2015_3

Lets all appreciate my gorgeous, hand crafted Sorapol jacket that I teamed with my own personal vintage skirt (courtesy of a 13 year old Betsy-Blue). Oh .. and my favourite Gucci platforms.
