AXL MEETS KEITH

11TH MARCH 2015
OUTFITS
LISTENING TO: GUNS N' ROSES - ESTRANGED ♫
Tee - Forever 21, shirt - M&S, leather jacket - Primark, jeans - Primark, booties - Topshop, bag - Topshop, bandanna - Claire's Accessories, rings - Bloody Mary Metal, necklace - Topman (similar).


I can't tell if rocking the Axl Rose bandana is a good look or a bad one. Perhaps the fact I have a center parting doesn't help, I'm just glad I'm no longer blonde else it could of been a whole different story. I felt like a mix between him and a love of mine, Mr Keith Richards. Not two of the worst people in the world I could of ended up channeling so I'm going to say it was an OK look to go for?

I was about to put my hat over my bandana like I usually do, but before I got the chance I heard a little voice coming from behind asking to see what it looked like without it (that was Dan helping me out when getting dressed this morning). I wasn't 100% sure if I could pull it off but being the 'why not' type that I am, I left the house with it on, although I did kind of want to get my air guitar out and start running about my imaginary stage like the pair of them all day!

Once I got over my desire to be a rock star I went with it and got out all things leopard and denim just to be that extra bit 90's. I teamed my Primark ripped knee jeans with a denim shirt for layering and added my leopard print Topshop mini bag and one of my all time favorite pair of booties. To top it all off, a leather jacket of course.

COLOUR, FOR A CHANGE

4TH MARTH 2015
OUTFITS
LISTENING TO: ALEXI MURDOCH - BLUE MIND ♫
Dress - F&F @ Tesco, shirt - Motel, jacket - M&S, boots - Next, rings - Accessorize.


I had to pinch myself while editing these photographs due to how much colour I'm wearing, I'm still in a total shock now. I can't get over it, especially at this time of year and to be honest I rarely wear red as it is! It was a very beautiful sunny day though so I think the sun is to blame, it clearly made me feel a little too jolly and messed with my head. Have no fear, I'm back in a full black attire as we speak, but hopefully not for long!

This pretty little number was found at the back of a rail in Tesco's clothing section, yep that's right, Tesco. I wore it with a classic Motel Stella shirt underneath to add a collar, oh how Alexa Chung of me I know. This dress has a bit of a retro feel to it so I teamed it with some thigh high boots (not only for retro-factor but to cover my cold legs) and my mothers denim jacket, we can't have retro vibes going on if something isn't borrowed from the parents closet now can we?

I've really missed wearing dresses with winter and have seemed to collect quite a few in the sale over the past few months so I'm actually really looking forward to sporting them in the upcoming, more warmer months. I've noticed I've grown out of wearing tights with dresses lately, in fact I don't think I've come face to face with a pair in the past year. I used to live in floaty dresses and 60 denier tights but now I just want to save my dresses for the warmer seasons, maybe I've grown up and realized mother was right all along, I will freeze if I wear above the knees dresses in December!

B.I.G PRINTS

16TH FEBRUARY 2015
OUTFITS
LISTENING TO : THE NOTORIOUS B.I.G - SKY'S THE LIMIT (EXPLICIT) ♫
T-shirt - Forever 21, jacket - New Look, jeans - Primark, booties - Marks and Spencer, belt - Primark, necklace - Topman, watch - Topshop (similar), rings - Accessorize


If you've seen my 'Current Sounds' section (which you can find at the navigation bar at the top of this page) then you'll know already that i'm an avid hip-hop fan, Biggie Smalls being my top choice. I've always enjoyed that sweet 90's sound, super mellow, super chill and a little bit naughty. As we know by now another love of mine is ridiculous t-shirts, and obviously this one is a little bit mad! Little pictures of Biggies face from the iconic The Final Chapter album is pretty hilarious, so thank you Forever 21 for making this brilliant t-shirt which kind of reminds me of Eleven Paris as they're notorious (no pun intended) for their eye-catching and rather ridiculous all over prints.

I feel like my coat is a fitting choice, as the 90's hip-hop scene wasn't shy of a few fur coats here and there. P-Diddy was the ultimate fur king and still is, did you see his outfit at the Kanye West x Adidas Originals NYFW show? That fur collar was something else.

I've added a little more pattern by wearing a thin leopard print belt to the mix and kept the rest of my outfit toned down with a simple pair of black skinny jeans and everyday black booties, which if you haven't gathered I literally wear daily. I'm really obsessed with wearing basic jeans and boots and having a more 'out there' top half at the moment, mainly because these jeans are a security blanket of mine. I've pretty much worn black jeans all winter and i'm going to have to cave in and stock up on more to save my moaning every time I spill something down this pair. I think the fact they're black makes me feel a little more comfortable as I can accidentally spill tea down them and no one will notice, which is a twice a day occurrence for clumsy ol' me as it was only yesterday that I split half a cup over myself and my boyfriends bed sheets, oopsie. Another reason why I need to stock up I feel!

ROCK TEES AND ANIMAL PRINT

29TH JANUARY 2015
OUTFITS
LISTENING TO: PINK FLOYD - US AND THEM ♫
Tee - thrifted, jacket - Primark, jeans - Primark, boots - New Look, rings - Bloody Mary Metal.


I'm actually stunned that this is the first time this season I've worn one of my (faux) fur jackets, what?! This must be a record or something, last year, hell every year I've worn them to absolute death! Maybe that's the reason I haven't gone for them this season but hey ho, at least this one has gotten some use!

I think band tees almost have to be worn with some form or animal print, leather or just plain black, especially those of a 'rock' genre. So I opted to ditch the leather jacket and smother my tee in all the faux fur goodness that is this mad jacket. Y'all probably know by now that I'm a sucker for animal print, I recently bought some cow print slip ons which have proudly made top ranking of 'Ugliest Shoe', but I sometimes think the tackier the better and I personally love them. Animal print be it leopard, zebra, snake or croc can either be done really, really well or totally awful and it certainly requires a specific taste. But in my personal opinion, this jacket is really quite cool. Not only that but it's the warmest item of clothing that has even been placed onto my upper body, it's so warm and cosy with it's big collar and over-sized charm.

I've opted for my trusty and very skinny, skinny jeans and my also very trusty chelsea boots. This is the kind of outfit I wear more than I should but mixing it up with a different coat such as a vintage denim jacket, or swapping my boots for a pair of brogues changes it up and makes me feel better about wearing this combo for 3 days straight. TMI? Probably.
