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!

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.

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.

Anyway, the other day I filmed a new cover for you all. It should be released shortly but I thought I’d share some pictures that were shot on the day by the talented  Callum Mills. And as this is a fashion blog – obvi I’m going to tell you where all the clothes are from that I’m wearing! P.S. I not cannot leave the house without tying a neck scarf/bandanna round my neck.

Still in sunny LA. I’m staying at friends but I spent past couple of nights in a cool art deco hotel and interestingly enough – it turns out Marilyn Monroe used to live at this exact hotel! She lived here for 3 years and there’s many iconic glamour shoots of hers that were shot here also. Thought that was pretty cool seeing as it’s such an unknown hotel.marilyn-monroe-beverly-carlton-hotel

BACK TO THE CLOTHES. Wearing my new favourite roll neck from Nobody’s Child who i’m loving right now.. I blogged about them last week too. BUT I’m pairing this roll neck with my epiiiiiic new leather piece. You all know how much I love a leather jacket… this is what dream are seriously made of. IMG_7663IMG_7667IMG_7661

This isn’t really an outfit post – this is more of an ITEM post but treat it as you like.
BeFunky_null_ZXC1.jpgBeFunky__MG_2d360.jpg A few months ago I got this gorgeous oversized suit jacket with gold buttons emblazoned down the back from Never Fully Dressed. I’ve worn it a tonne of times as it jazzes up virtually ANYTHING but just got the chance to photograph it.
