A HOMAGE TO THE KINGS FOR LONDON FASHION WEEKEND | 28.9.15


On Friday I took a trip to the capital for London Fashion Weekend, the part of fashion week that's a little more toned down and tame - basically a celebration that all the not as cool people can enjoy, I'm talking about purely myself here. I'm yet to experience LFW but hey, there's always next year am I right?! Experiencing just a little part of it was great fun though, seeing designers collections and a catwalk show along with dozens of stylish people was seriously inspiring. But I'll save that for my next post, for now it's all about the OOTD I wore for such occasion.

Dress - Missguided (similar), belt - Missguided, shoes - eBay (Asos originally), denim jacket - Depop, ring - Bloody Mary Metal.


I wanted to dress true to my style with an outfit that really reflects 'me', so rocking some gear majorly inspired by the rock 'n' roll era, that Harry Styles lad and the one and only YSL is what this chicks all about, it was sort of an homage to the greats if you will. I am and forever will be obsessed with Yves Saint Laurent and the S/S collection that we saw a few months back was so inspiring for me. I always think of velvet, stars, glitter and the rock genre when YSL comes to mind so this outfit was majorly taken from that.

On the subject of Styles and YSL - two things that go marvellously in the same sentence, these boots are my version of the many pairs of boots and trainers that Saint Laurent has come out with, the metallic gold boots that Harry wears are my all time favourite shoe that I long to own, seriously just give me all the glitter and metallic boots please! My not as fancy but still pretty bad ass booties are an Asos special that I won on eBay for £3.60 including postage, yep you did read that correctly it wasn't your mind playing tricks on you because you're tired after a long day at work, honest! I feel so sorry for the lady who sold me these because they originally retail at £45 so I am very sorry lovely lady on eBay but you have made me very happy if it makes you feel any better?

I think if I was made into a cartoon character that wore the same clothes every episode (why so cartoons never change clothes by the way?), this would be my outfit. It reflects me and my style perfectly.

FAIRIES WEAR BOOTS | 21.9.15



I've seen so much 90's goodness going around at the moment with all the LFW madness surfacing, the Le Kilt show being my favorite so far but maybe I'll do a little round up from my couch in the next week or so because I'm not cool enough to witness it fully by going to the shows and actually photographing them myself, embarrassingly. I am heading to a cheeky little day next Friday though with my pal Kristina from Creepers and Cupcakes so I will be cool for 9 short hours I guess...

Top - eBay, skirt - Primark, jacket - thrifted, boots - Dr Martens, socks - Topman, sunglasses - my mothers


I've been wanting to wear this mad vinyl skirt for years, quite literally! I've had it hidden away in my draw and I completely forgot about it until recently when my shiny leather needs needed to be filled. I purchased it so long ago at Primark for a measly pound in the clearance section and like I said, haven't gotten any use out of it until now. I wanted something different to wear with my band t-shirts instead of my usual spray-on skinnies and saw the patient orange shining in the corner when I had my revelation, this will be worn and will look bad-ass! It's a pretty out there piece so I plan on wearing it completely casual for the most part, unless I'm feeling particularly darish of course.

Remember just then when I said I was loving the 90's thing going on at the moment? Well I brought some of that to this OOTD with my over-sized denim jacket and Dr Marten boots with visible sports socks for added Le Kilt vibes.

LOVE RIDE | 10.9.15


I finally, finally got myself a Harley Davidson tee and it's an amazing one at that. You'll learn to know that I do have a motor bike obsession, much like I do with pattern shirts and ankle boots, I'm obsessed! This stems from my father being obsessed himself, thanks Dad for sharing the love and passing that one down. As much as I want a classic Harley top with the logo on I couldn't help but go for this one instead as it's super subtle but still so rad. It's a one of a kind piece that I'll wear over and over again and treasure forever. I found it hidden away in the dark corners of eBay along with a couple of other items, just wait until you see what other bits I've picked up second hand because I think you'll be mighty jealous my friends.

Top - eBay, jeans - Primark, boots - Shellys London, hat - Forever 21, belt - Primark, bag - Primark, jewelry - vintage & Bloody Mary Metal

There's a fair bit of newness to this outfit including my hat which I purchased at Forever 21 - my favorite place! I love Forever 21, especially when they come out with great pieces like this. Whenever I want anything new I head straight to there and check out what they've got to offer first and they always deliver. Hello, this hat is proof enough!?

As for my boots, oh boy do these boots make my heart flutter. How can they not when they're covered in blue glitter and buckles AND zips? Amazing!
