DIY (AND DOUBLE, OBVIOUSLY) DENIM

27TH JULY 2015
OUTFITS
LISTENING TOO: PINK FLOYD - WAITING FOR THE WORMS ♫
Top - Forever 21, jeans - Primark, jacket - Depop, shoes - Duo, hat - Primark, socks - Primark, watch - Topshop, ring - Topman.


Remember last week when I talked all about my new obsession with DIY denim? Well here's the first installment of that phase, and boy is it a good phase indeed because this jacket is pretty rad, is it not? Pink Floyd? Obviously! I also mentioned in that post about a few finds I found on Depop, this being one of them. I scroll through on a daily basis on the attempt to find some one-off pieces, especially in the music area as my top key words on Depop seem to be 'band tees' and 'ZZ Top' - I'm trying to find a tee similar to Kate's ZZ Top shirt which she found through Depop, it needs to join my collection pronto! I'm so damn jealous.

Nevertheless I've still found a couple of gems myself including this rad denim jacket with the coolest Pink Floyd patch sewn on the back, it was all of £9 too so double win on this one! Denim is very 90's and as it's me I had to throw on a pair of the same toned denim pants, so predictable Chloe, so damn predictable. I'm such a 90's cliche but I'm head over heels for anything of that era at the moment that anything else is just going straight past me. Don't get me wrong though I still love the 60's and 70's thing but right now my true 90's kid is coming out, it's also kind of the way my dad dressed back then too but let's skip right past that...

If you're on the hunt for some customized denim then you should take to Depop, I know a lot of people have issues with it but I'm yet to find one. I've found some great stuff in among some of the not so great over priced bits and I've been happy with all of it - so far. I'm currently selling some of my old clothes over on eBay but may convert to Depop myself so if you give my page a follow then you may see some old and loved items of my own floating around on there soon!

MONTHLY MIXTAPE | JUNE 2015 ♫

22ND JUNE 2015
YOUTUBE

I finally bit the bullet and filmed a video I've thought about doing for months and months, proud moment over here! Even though I like to share my music with you guys here on my blog (have you ever noticed the 'Current Sounds' drop down menu over in the top right hand corner before?) I've thought about sharing more over on my YouTube channel by making a monthly video about my favorite music the month. I know most of us are music lovers so I hope some of you will enjoy finding new music through these videos, or maybe even sharing the love for a certain song with me. Think a beauty gurus monthly favorites video but swap that certain special foundation for a rock song, yep, that's what these videos are all about!

I'm going to post these at the end of every month even if they get barely any views (let's hope not...) because it's something I'm 100% up for doing on the regular. So, keep an eye out on my channel to hear what I've been playing non-stop throughout that particular month.

Along with a video I've also created a Spotify playlist which you can follow if you're a fellow Spotify user like me! If not then you can find all of the songs mentioned in the description box of the video itself. I'm hoping the playlist will get bigger and bigger over the months, as it currently only has these songs on it for the minute!

If you've had a listen to the song's I've mentioned then let me know what you think in the comments over here or on YouTube, whether you love or hate them! You can leave me a few songs to check out too if you like, I'm constantly looking for new music and I bet some of you have some killer songs hiding away on your iPod's.

So, I leave you with this and I hope you enjoy it. It's a little different and as much as I adore fashion and beauty videos, I want to bring my love of music to my channel and create more lifestyle posts an videos for you all. Thanks for tuning in and giving it a watch if you did and make sure to subscribe if you enjoyed!
