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.

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…

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 😉

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!

Click the products to be instantly directed to the site to purchase. These are my genuine everyday products – I feel as though a lot of blogging sites cheat their readers by solely advertising products that they’ve been paid to. I would always want to be honest with you guys and hope these products can be a part of your life. ALSO, just a heads up – A lot of these products are discounted at the moment so grab them whilst you can!

Another part of my beauty regime is my Beauty Box from ‘Look Fantastic’. Every month they send out a box of products worth £65. My last one was the ‘Jet Setter’ box and it’s so useful as you can find out what beauty products actually suit you without splashing out a load of cash on wasted items that end up not working with your skin type. It’s also very exciting when it comes in the post as you never know what’s going to be in the box!11140463-2144392532120434
