RED ALERT | 26.2.16



You couldn't tell from this outfit but I don't actually like the colour red, it's probably my least favourite colour which is why I'm always going to and from this jacket. I've had it for years now and the idea of a bad ass red leather jacket has always made my heart sing but sometimes I look at it hanging on my rail and think, 'is that seriously ugly or can I pull this off?'. Most of the time I don't care if I can pull something off or not but this isn't the most subtle jacket in existence so it does take some balls to don it and as if the colour wasn't enough the studs and cropped length add to the ballsiness even more to make it a seriously out there piece.

At the moment I'm on the love end of the spectrum and have all sorts of strong feelings for the jacket. I'm thinking it's because it goes so well with a standard Breton t-shirt or this red, white and blue number from American Apparel as well as my dozens of Stones shirts. It also makes a change from my every day black leather which I'm trying to wean myself off of as I'm starting to think my outfits are getting a bit standard and lazy. What says non-standard more than a crimson red jacket and boots to match? Go hard or go home! In this instance I probably went too hard and should of left the booties at home because boy, that is a lot of red especially for someone who hates that colour. Great, am I now back to hating it? I just can't make my mind up.

A FEW OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS | 19.10.15



No, this isn't a favourites post it's just an outfit that I'm loving from head-to-toe! I'm so feeling the neck scarf trend at the moment, not that it needed to become a trend for me to enjoy it. I've always been a wearer of scarves, I often wear one tied loosely round instead of tight like this but either way I'm all for it. I do remember my friend Ash telling me I looked like I was in a cult though, I guess wearing a Dre shirt doesn't help now either. I am forever expanding my bandanna collection at the risk of looking like a gang member.

Another current love of mine are these boots which were an amazing second-hand find, how old fashioned (in a good way) are these? They were at the ridiculous price of £3 too, absolute steal! They look rad with a pair of tight black jeans and remind me of the 'sock' boots I've seen around recently. No idea what I'm on about? Check out these shoes from Topshop to see what on earth I'm referring too. Cool right? Totally laid-back and comfy! These ones are a little special with the added patient leather grid detailing covering the outside which adds quite a quirky touch and makes them even more old-school and have you seen that heel? Totally something grandma Carpenter would don.

It obviously goes without saying that black jeans and leather jackets are two of my favourite things also.

PS. It wasn't intentional for me to have one pant leg rolled up and the other down, that's not some kind of look I rock on a daily basis, I was experimenting and completely forgot about it which is hilarious but so annoying. If you didn't notice then I'm an idiot for pointing it out but just in case you did and are sat thinking WTF then there you have it, I'm just that forgetful.

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...

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.
