DISCO SUCKS

This

sequin dress

is probably the most out-there piece I have in my wardrobe, and I'm not one to shy away from OTT things. Flamboyant patterns and bright coloured clothes are a heavy theme with me, but now it's time sequins made their way into my life. This number is a total disco dream, even being a firm believer that disco

does in fact suck

, I'll still be boogieing in this insane

The Ragged Priest

dress on Saturday night - with no Bee Gee's records in sight. It's the perfect party dress and I'll be milking it every weekend I have plans taking place in a bar surrounding.

I decided to make it less disco and more 90's pop by taking inspiration from The Spice Girls, because I know both Baby and Scary Spice would've worn this on stage. Keeping in theme I teamed it with the chunkiest pair of boots I own, looking back I should of took it that extra mile and sported some space buns...

I'm all kinds of in love with this dress, it's perfect for the upcoming festival season, general party occasions, OR day-to-day if you're really gonna go for it. That's one thing I love about The

Ragged Priest

, they make unique clothing for the bad-ass babes of the world who have a complete '

I don't give a fuck

' attitude about their style. So you wanna wear a sequin dress on hump day?

Go for it!

Want to tell the world how you're feeling with a naughty slogan tee?

Don't blame you!

Their new collection is something else, featuring pieces from the

classic striped tee

(with that cheeky slogan), to

leather motocross pants

. To me, they are one of the coolest brands going and always pull some seriously incredible pieces out of the bag.

My current favourites from their SS18 collection have to be the pieces featuring the python print. I'm a total sucker for animal print of any kind, so seeing that they've branched out into this for their new season product has my eyes turned to hearts. I'm also mad about the hints of yellow running through the entire collection, with their

mustard leather jacket

taking pride of place, and a pair of mega

yellow pants

to follow. The use of denim is strong in this collection too, taking boxy silhouettes and manly structures to create cool shirt dresses and over sized pants.

As I'm yet to get my hands on any of the new season drops, I wanted to share this sparkly number with you instead. I got this a while back, but hadn't had the time to shoot it. Now I've waited so long it's gone into the sale, so you can bag

this

for yourself at half the price over on The Ragged Priest. Go on,

unleash your inner Spice Girl!

PINK IF I WANNA

All hail my favourite look to date! It might be the very Kurt Cobain vibe, it could be the stupidly cute and Clueless skirt or it could even be my new dream boots making their debut - OK so it's probably all of the above, who am I even kidding. When I chose this skirt, most of my colleges told me I was mad. Not everyone thought it was as cool as me, and they definitely didn't think it was something I'd choose to wear because

OH MY GOD, CJ WEARING PINK?!

It was a shock to everyone that I'd chosen something in this colour, but little did they know that I'd be styling it in a way that

was

me and I can totally wear pink if I want to, so screw you all.

It never sits right with me when people comment negatively on things you like because it '

wouldn't suit you

', or '

you've never worn anything like that before

'. Fashion is all about trying new trends and mixing up your style whenever you please. Hell no am I going to spend my days dressing the same and never try anything new. I mean,

yeah OK

one time I did buy a pair of fluffy sliders and it turns out they really weren't my thing. I tried them out because I thought they were sassy, and I know most of us have had many outfit fails in life, but we learn from that and will swear never place a flip-flop with grey faux fur on our feet again... Trends move on quick, and those gingham pants you wore last season might not be '

in fashion

' now, but I have the mind set of if you like it, wear it, no matter how last season it is or if no one else thinks it's your thing. If you love it,

then it is you

. Just because I spend a lot of my time in a monochrome pallete, doesn't mean I don't enjoy pieces like this skirt or these sunglasses. It's time to quit judging and let people wear whatever the hell they want!

Talking of sunglasses,

ASOS

are slaying the game with their summer accessories at the moment, they even have

these ones

I'm wearing in an array of different colours (

I have all of them, someone stop me

). I'm a complete hoarder when it comes to eye wear and I'm constantly refreshing the New In page to see if they've brought out more styles. This style of frame is my favourite, and the colour is perfect for adding fun to an outfit, not that the rest of the look isn't fun enough!

Other than my sunglasses, this entire look is from Topshop. I'd say half of my outgoings from the past two months have been spent in Topshop. It doesn't help that I spend thirty eight hours a week in one of their stores, of course. I can't help myself, their new season pieces are making my heart break and my bank account hurt!

I might of gone totally OTT with this look, it's definitely a case of fan girling as it's pretty obvious I enjoy Kurt Cobain, but I am honestly head-over-heels in love with every piece in this outfit, no matter how much I might look like a number one Nirvana fan.

MODERN ROMANCE | FAN CLUB CLOTHING

Last year I came across

Fan Club

, a brand that speaks to me on so many levels. As a brand they produce apparel for the '

muse makers and heart breakers

' of the world. Creating slogan jerseys with retro lyrics and feminist writings. Every time I wear one of my pieces from them, my Dad gets giddy and tells me all about the song related to it, like I didn't already know Bob Dylan sang '

Just Like a Woman

', or that '

Rumors

' is a very well known Fleetwood Mac song... I'm always here for a brand that uses music within their clothes, so Fan Club are slowly becoming my go-to for statement tops.

Not only are they acing their clothing, but they've been branching out into accessories which I'll be sharing with you all in the upcoming week - wait for it,

it's a knockout!

As a brand they are doing everything right, I'm waiting patiently for new product to be released and I can't wait to see how far they go. With all the cool girls of Instagram wearing their stuff, they are sure to go all the way to the top!

It only seemed fitting that I pair my

Modern Romance

sweat with a pair of leopard flares, because that's what anyone would do in the era of that band, at least that's what I would of done because

long live the 80's

. I don't necessarily think this sweat is a reference on the band, but I like to think it is. Either way it's a super cute piece and reminds me of something

Bella Freud

would create.

These

pants though, are the new loves of my life. It's not like I needed any more flares in my wardrobe, but when I see a beautiful pair of patterned trousers I have to snap them up right away, these ones were no exception. Leopard print and slogan tee's are the way to my heart, so this outfit could not be more me if it tried.

I've got so many radical pieces from

Fan Club

to share with you, and I know by the end of these blog posts you'll have bagged yourself at least one of their perfect tee's. What's even cooler about this brand (

not that it can actually get much cooler if it tried

) is that they are run and owned by women, something I always look out for when discovering new names on the block. You'll be hearing me chat a lot about them in my new content, so I'll leave some things undiscovered for now.

ALMOST FAMOUS

Wearing rainbow stripes is a serious trend right now, and while I've always been into striped clothing, only in the recent years have I expressed my brighter side in the way that I dress. I always say that I only ever wore black, light black and sometimes grey (a very dark shade of grey might I add) and it's true, you'd never of seen me wearing an outfit this bright six years ago -

although

you'd definitely of seen me in these Dr Martens

. But, six years ago I was a different person who only ever cared about the grunge phase I was in, now I'm older and into the idea of actually wearing these colours. I've got to say that wearing an entire look made up of only the deepest shade of black doesn't quite thrill me the way it used to.

I've seen numerous versions of rainbow tops, but this one stood out for me the most. Maybe it's the '

Almost Famous

' text on the front that swung me? Is it a reference to iconic 00's film of that name, or is it a dig at the people who think they are something they're not? It's an up-in-the-air debate right now and either way I love it. 

The Ragged Priest

always pull through on unique pieces like this, pieces that no other brand is making, by creating items that are original and totally un-seen before. It's a brand I always look out for and have enjoyed for years. They really fit in to the '

cool, edgy girl on instagram

' vibe that is everywhere at the moment, and not a look I turn my nose up at (

because I wish I was that cool girl on Instagram

). Pairing it with my knee length

Dr Martens

was a good choice, wearing it with no tights in January was not. The sun setting just in time for taking these photographs makes it look far warmer than it was, and wearing these sunglasses helped a lot too. The trick is to think you're somewhere sunny and the goosebumps will eventually disappear, and it's totally worth the freezing cold temperature when you've got some killer garms to shoot in!

POWER TO PLAYBOY

When some people think of

Playboy

they think of pornography, cheap, dirty pornography. But, I'm a firm believer it's a magazine that embraces woman and their bodies. Granted, it's risque and can be seedy at times but whats wrong with the way we decide capture the naked body anyway?! Whether it's full nude or not - it's art, it's daring and it's cool. Some of my favorite ladies have graced the covers of their magazine, looking flawless and doing it for girl power. It gets a lot of stick but for me it's a powerful publication that I stand by. We need to forget about the men behind it and look at all of the amazing work and imagery these woman have created by showcasing their powerful bodies and not giving a fuck. I've looked up to these ladies for years and always adored their courage and confidence, these include models like

Ashley Smith

,

Zippora Seven

and

Taylor LaShae

to name a few. I aspire to be like these powerful individuals and seeing them achieve a goal like this is inspiring and great for my personal self confidence. Another strong reason to enjoy Playboy is the care free mentality towards models and their size, by using incredible '

plus size

' women like the unreal

Molly Constable

. We read fashion magazines and view the photo spreads within them, but nudity isn't there, females are covered and the chance of seeing a plus size model is unlikely. Times are changing and we need to move with it, freeing a nipple or exploring peoples unique beauty needs to become the norm and not something we turn our noses up at.

Playboy is that publication for me

.

People spend their lives being shocked and disgusted about the way we choose to display our bodies, whether it's through the power of social media or even the way we dress. Wearing a crop top or a pair of shorts just that bit too short can make people tut and sigh, but why do we care so much about what others think? I use my platforms as a way to embrace my body and I spend most of my time on these sites commenting with love about these images that showcase the beauty of these people. I'm pro nudity in any form, be it through art or through lifestyle. I don't turn my nose at a photo on Instagram that shows too much boob, or feel ashamed when I see a nipple. We need to take away the blur and not care about those who find our bodies so damn offencive.

You know what the sad thing is? This outfit might be deemed as '

too sexy

' because I'm broadcasting Playboy and I choose to wear a pair of tight leather trousers. But my care level is at zero and I'm expressing myself and my opinions though the power of fashion. We have these tools around us and the clothing to help us become the people we are. I'll often wear a motif tee with a powerful expression on, and I'm forever wearing the same leather jacket that is covered in badges that promote LGBT and peace. This is who I am and I want to share it with the world, not hide it because I'm afraid of what others might think of me.

If you are passionate about something and want to shout about it, then do it! We have a voice that is made to be expressive, so don't hide and think about all these things you could do but won't because of the fear of judgement. Your opinions might be different to mine, and

that's OK too

. The beauty of the human race is our difference in personalities so express it with true pride!

LEARNING TO LET GO

I've had many friends in life, those who I still consider to be close to, and those who have slipped right through the net of life. The ones you think about when you see a Facebook post telling the world they're newly engaged or moved in with their partner, to which you make the effort to congratulate them by having a light catch-up - don't roll your eyes at me,

I KNOW

you've done this before! It sounds savage, being so honest about it, but I think I've finally become a person that doesn't want to hold on to old '

friendships

', because what's the point when you've moved on and so have they? I think you get to a certain age and it suddenly hits you, '

who are my true friends?

', you start to eliminate the people you no longer want to spend your free time with and focus on the ones you do. When you become an adult you don't have a lot of time for socializing like you did in school, it's a whole different ball game now.

In school you'd spend five days a week with 20 or more pupils, learning everything about them and who they are, then forming special connections with a selected handful. You were able to hang out after school, walk home together and play GTA non-stop until mum said it was dinner time. Now, I find it hard to switch on my XBOX for anything but catch-up TV in the background of a working situation,

on my own

. You'd be able to have fun

all day

on the weekends and be nothing but totally free, I'd head to the beach with a few of my friends, sitting in the sand dunes for hours listening to The Killers on repeat until it was finally time to get fish and chips, drag that on for a bit and wait for a call from my mum to tell me dinners at 7pm, not what I wanted after stuffing my gullet full on fried goods. But that was my early teenage years, nearly total freedom and no adult responsibilities. Friendship isn't an adult job, it's something we cherish and adore, but when you out grow your teens you start to wonder if you'll ever keep in touch with the people you had these memories with, or if they'd forget all about you once they'd moved off to new places. This was me, picture the scene... Just out of college, not wanting to spend another minute of my time studying, but watching all of my friends apply for University, getting in and leaving me on my own. It was a lonely time but one that certainly grew me as a person.

What else was there to do but think?

My parents tell me it gets harder, your best friends form new lives, get married, have a baby and then you only ever see them for the celebration of a new life in

their

life, another person to take them away from you. It all sounds incredibly selfish and very doom and gloom, but it's the cold hard truth. You grow up, learn to let go and live your life as is, with a close knit group of friends while the rest is history. It's funny how we think our school friends will be best friends forever, we look towards the future and imagine living together, holidaying in a hot country and being each others Maid of Honor. That was all I wanted when I was fifteen, but now it's a very distant memory. We all grow up and most importantly,

we change

, more often then we think. I've grown to love change and enjoy new possibilities when they arrive, this included friendship. The past year I've made some great new friends, and I hope these stick. I'm 24 this year and I want to make all the time in the world for the best friends I have today, and learn to say goodbye the ones that have left my life for good. I'm embracing the new and not spending too much time thinking about the old, as I think reflecting on the past can be dangerous. That's not to say I regret or don't miss my old pals, I very much do. But it's also nice to remember those times for what they are and leave it at that.

I'm a dreamer

, I often go into a world of my own and think about my life all those years ago, while looking forward to new beginnings. New friends come and they go, but I'll be embracing every one that comes my way and treasuring it for what it is, whether it's here for the long run or the short. I think it's good to enjoy it and if it loses it spark, that's OK too, it's still a memory.

I've said farewell to 'BFF'S' and made new ones, and I don't regret anything because some people just aren't for me. Life throws obstacles at you and situations don't work out the way you think they will. Over the New Year period a lot of people were talking about making a conscious effort to get rid of toxic people, the ones that put you down and don't make your life enjoyable. This is a good way of thinking, who need's a bad friend in their life when they have others anyway? And if not, will be sure to make some a long the way. It's best not to get caught up in these things and think about yourself, because if there is one thing I've learnt in my (

almost

) 24 years of life, it's that we need to focus on ourselves more often. We don't need negativity surrounding us when life is hard as is, it's all about making it  as much as a positive experience as humanly possible.

I love everyone in my life right now, and I'm so excited to meet new people and see what the rest of my young adult life has in store for me. Now's the time when I'll be meeting the most inspiring and incredible people, and I couldn't be more ready for it. I've released my sadness about losing touch with old friends and keep reminding myself that the best is still yet to come...

BURN YOUR BRA

I've been lucky enough to work with some brands that I really love recently, I'm so stoked to be able to create content with people and brands I adore. Making images and styling is my favourite thing to do, so being able to do this on the regular is quite special to me, you could say that I'm currently on cloud 9 about it. To celebrate this I've taken a trip down nostalgia lane and gone totally retro for a series of images I'll be sharing for the next couple of weeks,

and

as I'm quite proud of them I will undoubtedly be plastering them everywhere... To help with this I've teamed up with

Waiste Vintage

, who supplied me with all of the throw-back pieces I could dream of. The whole thing was a trip back to the seventies (

I obviously wasn't around in this era, but having a mother who lives for it and endless icons from said time, I think I know a little bit about it?

) and they might just be my favourite shoots to date, what with it being my all time favourite era I just had to take it to the extreme and go full on with it! Prepare for my blog to take a trip back to the time of psychedelic prints, statement accessories and of course a little bit of the '

burn the bra

' movement with this first post. Yeah, I'm embracing these phenomenal tan lines BTW...

When I think of the seventies I think of making statements and being loud and proud with everything from feminism to clothing, so I wanted to mix both with this outfit. I've nailed it with the

perfect slogan t-shirt

from

Nasty Gal

that was made to be worn with a seriously retro get-up. Of course, women did not actually burn their bra's in the late sixties and early seventies, but the myth of it all made for a powerful slogan for journalists and critic's, which later become great for printing onto clothing. Woman simply put their undies in the bin for a protest on the modern day beauty culture of valuing women for their looks, rather than their true being. It was a revolutionary act and put weight on unrealistic beauty expectations and standards. So to me, this piece needed to be worn for my throw-back shoot as it was a huge political movement from the era and one I stand with, it also makes for a pretty cute shirt too...

To help with making a statement I've got these beautiful flower power trousers from

Waiste Vintage

that have totally stolen my heart. They would be perfect for warm summers but also far too perfect to be kept away in winter. I braved it with these and forgot about sweet warmth for a while by embracing them for what they are, a pretty pair of kick flare linens -

my body is shivering just thinking about how freezing it was shooting these! 

The whole thing was worth the hours of goose-bumps afterwards, as I think me and my partner in creative crime (

that's you, Harry

) did good considering the zero degree temperatures and sudden down pours of rain. No matter what the weather I wanted these images to come across like they've been shot in the Californian sun.

The entire theme of these upcoming shoots means so much to me, I'm practically bursting I'm that excited to share them all with you.

So

, even though it's basically Baltic outside, I'm going to be sending us to warmer climes and chilled out scenes for the next few weeks,

enjoy!

HOUSE OF HEARTS BY SISTER JANE | PART TWO

It's time for my last instalment of my collaboration with

Sister Jane

, and I think I may of

unintentionally

saved the best till last? It's up for debate as my last two posts we're both quite something,

if I do say so myself!

It might seem funny to see me in such a feminine dress, I don't think I've ever debuted anything like this on my blog before, but that's not to say I'm not into it. In fact, after wearing this frilly number I'm now on the hunt for dresses similar that I can add to my wardrobe. I've always loved a ruffle, I even went on about my love of them in my

last post for Ghospell

,

so I'll try not to go on too much in this post, but that might be difficult because

HELLO

, look at this beautiful frilly dress of dreams!

DRESS -

SISTER JANE*

| SOCKS - TOPSHOP | SHOES - PRIMARK

Let me introduce you to the

Sour Cherry Tiered Dress

. This piece may be considered a little kid's dream dolls dress, I can imagine a toddler wanting to play dress up and ram raid their mothers make-up draw, their is a child-like feel to it which makes it even more beautiful to me. It's not often someone would have the courage to wear a dress like this, which is the main reason why I love it. It has a couture feel to it, an almost fancy dress element that makes it all the more magical. It's rare you see garments like this, but when you do you remember your youth and how fun it is to get dressed up and have fun with fashion again. It definitely took me out of my comfort zone, and that's my favourite thing about styling, if something makes me feel daring and confident then it's a winner for me. Challenging our style is so important, and I'm so glad I challenged mine with this look!

There are two big reasons as to why I was drawn to this dress, the first being the colour. My favourite trend and colour combo this season is certainly red and pink, which is quite bizarre as these used to be two colours I wouldn't often wear, let alone together! I always told myself I looked terrible in red, classing it as my least favourite colour, I even longed to be able to look good in red lipstick but told myself I could never pull it off. Now I've gotten over myself and realised I can wear what I want and not actually give a damn about what other people think, or more to the point how I tell myself I think I look when I actually look OK. It's a daring combo and I've seen many people turn their noses up at it, but I'm obsessed and will be mixing these two colours all through winter to bring a little vibrancy to my life.

The second reason being the style, it takes huge reference on designers like Gucci and Miu Miu with the shape and of course the glorious frills. It's a very British design and throws back to the Victorian era or style, where sheer overlaying and ruffled detailing where huge. I wanted to keep with the inspiration of designers like these and pair it with my new thing,

socks and heels

. For my first post with Sister Jane I teamed the

House of Hearts

suit with glitter socks and chunky heels, and this dress just had to be worn with them too but this time I swapped the grey glitter with pink. If you're going to wear a dress like this you've got to go all the way and style it daringly. I'm so in love with the entirety of this look, and now I've embraced what it feels like to wear a dress of this calibre, I'll definitely be buying pieces like it more often. It's without a doubt a show stopper and perfect for dinner dates and evening events, or of course everyday wear if you're feeling confident. I guarantee the feeling of self love and confidence come included in this dress, trust me when I say you'll be spinning around and dancing your way through the day once you've got this on, I certainly was (

but then when am I not?

).

A NEW ERA OF SPORTSWEAR

It's 2017 and a new era of sportswear has arrived,

and it's not just for the gym

... This season we've got new trends like heritage checks, bold colours and winter florals to name a few, but one trend I've seen all through the year is sportswear, I'm talking fashion-basics with a sport luxe feel. To me this is less of a trend and more of a new era of fashion, with people who have always worn sports brands being given the tools to make it more street-style friendly. You don't need a gym membership to be entitled to wear a pair of leggings these days, just team them with heeled boots and a trench coat and you'll be

so on trend!

I wanted to put this to the test and style a piece so it fit in to my usual outfit of choice, as that's what this whole sports luxe trend is after all -

making it stylish and street friendly!

That's not to say that if you wear head-to-toe gym gear you're not fashionable, but I certainly wouldn't be dressed that way, I wouldn't even attend a gym (

guilty

)! It would be rather handy to already be dressed for the treadmill after you've spent the day shopping, it'd surely save on washing!

See

, there are many perks to the trend already!

I've taken this

black

NICCE

womens hoodie

for a spin, not a brand I have worn before but then again the entire concept of this outfit is new to me. The hoodie itself is the perfect item to help me on my way to nailing this trend, it's sleek, an easy colour to work with and comfy -

plain and simple.

I wanted something in black so I could layer it all through winter and match it with my many pairs of leather trousers, it's the most perfect colour to match my already dark wardrobe. Instead of doing the obvious and wearing it with jeans and trainers, I wanted to take it a couple of steps further and make it boarder on grunge, because that's my signature style and with this trend you don't have to change your look to make it work.

I need to be honest though and tell you one of the main reasons I wanted to give this look a go, and it's

not

because I knew it would be the comfiest thing I have ever worn... Honestly, it's because I saw a photoset of Alexa Chung where she was wearing a PVC trench coat and a zip-up hoodie underneath. It was a serious look that I needed to re-create somehow. Instead of quite literally copying every aspect of it, I ditched the PVC coat (

because my Black Friday purchase hasn't been delivered yet

) and wore a pair of shiny trousers instead. Without blowing my own trumpet, it's an outfit I'm very much into, it holds an effortlessly cool vibe and all jokes a side, the comfort level is quite high.

All in all I'm now fully converted and will be purchasing sweatshirts from here on out. I believe this '

trend

' will be around for the long run, it's a model off duty vibe and will definitely be seen on the next run of Fashion Week,

you heard it here first!

NICCE

has a wide variety of contemporary streetwear including some really

chic pastel sweatshirts

and

unisex hoodies

, so you could buy your other half one for Christmas and then wear it yourself (

you're welcome

). Not only have they smashed the outwear, but they've got some very cool

WINTER PARADISE BY GHOSPELL

My

last post

featured

Sister Jane

, and this time it's all about their

sister

brand,

Ghospell

. When I went to the

Siser Jane

store I thought I'd only be greeted by rails of floaty dresses and patterned suits (

their staple product

), fact is I also got shown the new collection from

Ghospell

,

it was a total treat!

So, instead of picking a select handful of purely Sister Jane, I decided to try on some pieces from them as well. Turns out this one ended up coming home with me, or to the cabin shall I say. I'm a sucker for a frill, and this rusty orange shade is the most perfect colour for autumn, so I couldn't resist. A perfect piece to shoot in the warmth of our cabin we acquired of the night! So here it is, part two of my collaboration with the dream team that is Sister Jane and Ghospell...

SHIRT -

GHOSPELL

* | TROUSERS -

TOPSHOP

Ghospell

recently launched their latest collection,

Winter Paradise

, which is filled with rustic hues, winter florals and of course a ruffle or two. Ruffles are huge this season, and perfect for any man or woman wanting to feel a bit Bowie circa 1970's. As the bohemian ruffles made me feel like it was an ode to Bowie, I wanted to team it with some trousers that I know he would of enjoyed. Say hello to my sequin flares of dreams that were made to be worn with  girlie frill! 

This outfit borders on rock and roll with the sequins and flamboyant blouse, I could image rock stars like Alex Turner picking the shirt and Mick Jagger selecting the trousers, it's a bold mix and match outfit, but for me it totally works. If I was a front man this would be my stage outfit, but sadly every time I've picked up an instrument I've failed miserably, and boy have I tried! I'll stick to wearing this combo off stage and keep singing into my hairbrush in private, something I do all too often.

These flares are going to be my winter party piece. They're so easy to style because they do all the talking for you. Wear them with a basic t-shirt and your outfits pretty much made. I bought mine from

Topshop

, but since picking them up I've seen brands like

Missguided

and

Pretty Little Thing

jump on the hype. I think our Insta feeds will be filled with sequin OOTD's from here until January 1st and I'm excited about it! I can't wait to take these babies for a spin on the town, maybe I'll head to a karaoke bar and live my dream of wearing the ultimate front man attire on an actual stage with an actual real life microphone and not my Tangle Teaser. Maybe, but probably not...

Stay tuned for my next photo set which features even more

Sister Jane

and even more ruffle!
