Holaaaa! I am loving my new (very polite) tee from Adolescent Clothing. If you want to spread a message – wear it on a t-shirt. Simple.

I’m also sporting my most favourite item EVER. My new bag from Vlieger and Vandam – a Dutch brand who I’ve known about for years. Their bags are ME to a T – beautifully made to the highest quality and edgy as hell. I can’t believe I’ve only just got my hands on this tote but it is never going to leave my arm.

Link to purchase the outfit are at the bottom of the page!

Hey babes’, I’ve had to come to terms lately with the fact that I’m only going to be able to post when I’m able to. If that makes any sense at all – haha. Everything is crazy at the moment filming a brand new TV show for a pretty big channel and filming is everyday! By the time I grab my blogging camera these days, it’s always bloooody dark outside. Anyway, I’ve found two AMAZING new brands that I love. The first being Terry De Havilland. His footwear is remarkable and tick all three of the most important boxes – UNIQUE, MAJOR HIGH QUALITY AND ACTUALLY COMFORTABLE! I’m serious. If you keep up with my instagram, I shared a photo of my TDH gold wedges that I wore in Barcelona… I walked around the city in them all day with no hassle. This shoe collection is so beautiful and each pair are so insanely individual I had to have them all!! The shoes I’m wearing in this post is Terry De Havilland’s collection with ASOS (see – even asos know!). I also discovered a brand called Fan Club Clothing. They produce really cute slogan stuff but not ya basic slogans! It’s all pretty retro (which is perfect for moi) and american themed.  Full details of this look is at the bottom of the post!maccheesemacandcheese7macandcheese8macandcheese1macandcheese6macandcheese5macandcheese4macandcheese2Shades – VOW London, Tee – Fan Club Clothing, Skirt – Topshop, Shoes – Terry De Havilland X asos, Choker – Zara.

On Friday I had the best post imaginable. Three absolutely amazing Skinny Dip bags from their new Western theme collection. We all know how much I wanna’ be a cowgirl so these bags are absolutely perfect in helping me along my way haha. I styled three different outfits based around the bags with all the info below!

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.

First of all I’d just like to say a massive thanks to one of my fans Emelene Kennedy for the cutest artwork of me in some of the outfits featured on this site and my instagram (@betsy_oty). You are truly talented!

photoMoving on – this is a post I’ve always wanted to do! I wanted to share with you some items in my wardrobe that I treasure.  I had a lot of fun doing a personal photo-shoot with these lovely pieces – they were great models! (haha)reupload3reup4Moschino Biker Bag

fave14fave15This jacket is particular special to me as I actually hand painted and embellished it with studs and glitter.

fave20fave19My beloved Chanel Boy Bag – I spent years saving up for this and finally purchased on my 18th birthday.

fave10fave11I found these vintage ‘TWINS’ boxer shorts in a vintage factory in West London and I CANNOT to wear them one day. I think they deserve a stage appearance. 

fave13fave12This is probably top of my favourite clothing items ever owned. I searched high and low for one of these for years and finally brought it from a private seller. I love it so much that I wore it for my first music video with Only The Young for our debut single ‘I Do’. 

fave16fave17Jeffrey Campbell lace up shoes. A firm favourite for years. Have had many appearances including my judges houses TV appearance.

With radio tour, signing tour and release over with; last week was all about having some fun (whilst working still of course). We started the week in Ireland performing at the prestigious Rose Of Tralee festival, had some TV and radio in between and ended it at the Bad Education Premiere and backstage at V Festival!

Here’s some snaps from The Bad Education Premiere

Me and Parisa were lovingly invited to spend the day at V-Festival with Pretty Little Thing… and of course, we also spent the day in their rad clothes too. I picked this snake print scuba skirt, brown, suede shirt and paired it with killer accessories and hair and makeup by Charlie Wilkinson and Kristina Theodoris. We spent the day backstage sipping on cocktails at the Mahiki bar, chatting to the cute James Bay and stuffing our faces with hotdogs whilst watching the awesome acts. As much as we adore performing – it was so chill to relax at a music festival and enjoy the other acts!

Ahead of our debut single ‘I Do’ which is now released August 7th (due to delays at Calais resulting in our CD’S unable to get to anyone!!! BAH) – we performed on ITV’s Lorraine. For you international readers that’s the UK equivalent of Good Morning America etc etc… Click here to watch the interview

Obviously I had to wear something supaa cool but with no time to scour for outfits at the moment as we are so busy I raided Beyond Retro. And boy I’m happy I did!! I found this incredible Moschino-esque, thick, bomber jacket with (my fave) gold embroidery and bliiiiiing.  I’m pretty sure it’s couture. I WISHHH it had a label in it so I knew where it was from! I also found two insane party gowns which i’m sure you’ll see me in pretty soon and my new favourite cow(girl) belt pictured here. Beyond Retro is very hit and miss… you either walk out completely empty handed or empty walletED. This time was the latter. Lets not forget my badass, calf length heels either from Public Desire. I now have a whole wardrobe devoted to Public Desire and I can’t wait to show you all their styles. You will be shoe crushin’ for sure. Links for the rest of the outfit are featured at the bottom of the page.IMG_5937 IMG_5943IMG_5946IMG_5968IMG_5971IMG_5984IMG_5987IMG_5990

The boots are called ‘Sage Caged Calf Length Heels’ < click to purchase

I’m particularly happy about this blog post because for the first time in about 4 months.. I’m not wearing my ripped jeans! My friends will be thanking the heavens when they see this post – I probably smell really bad… I mean, those jeans are worn pretty much every day. What’s made me even happier is that I’ve found a pair of ‘Mom Jeans’ that actually suit my figure. Being a little on the short side – it’s hard to pull off baggy jeans as they can make you look like you’re drowning in a sea of denim. These are super flattering though and come with a cute belt – how generous of River Island! My only  nay with these jeans is that they’re lacking a bit of ‘rip’… I know, I’m obsessed… *inserts monkey covering eye emoji* .. *gets scissors out*.

This white bustier/structured bralet kinda thang was bought to wear under a sheer dress but it actually looks pretty nice as a simple crop top with jeans – to spice it up a bit I put a black lace bralet underneath and a silver body chain over the top.
