Being a proper lady of the 1950's - Fashion Week

Good Morning to you all, and let me take you back to the 1950's!!!! I am ever so excited for you to see this blog post as I am absolutely in love with the finished look I created. 

Firstly, and the most predominant aspect of the look, the suit. This is an original suit worn in the 1950's; and was once worn by a lady attending her Univeristy interview - sheek! I adore this suit so so much, I have worn the jacket with more contemporary items before and it always looks smashing! It is very fitted, and is pulled in right at the waistline, giving you a very definitive feminine figure! Hurray! If you ever find yourself in a position to purchase a vintage suit, do it - you won't regret it! 

The shoes and hat I am wearing have featured in my blog before. The shoes are from Mifani Shoes and I absolutely love their range of shoes, you ought to check out their brand yourselves! My hat is from Asos and again, head over to Asos because they have a gorgeous selection of fedora and floppy hats! Lastly, the gloves I am wearing were given to me as a gift and so I am not sure where they are from; however, leather gloves are perfect for winter and I would 100% recommend River Island or Asos for leather gloves as from what I have seen whilst browsing, they have some real treasures! 

Anyway, I hope you liked today's 1950's special and are inspired to get suited and booted because you cannot go wrong! 

See you tomorrow!

Winter Coat Styling & The Most Important Aspects Of Life.

Evening everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far and are keeping warm and cosy in this awfully miserable British weather. I also expect that you have seen the John Lewis Christmas Advert for this year, or else you're a slight scrooge and complete disappointment. Watch it here before you continue to read this blog post, if you haven't already indulged in the festivity because it is wildlife-filled and exceeds the word cute.

American politics aside, I am hopeful that you have all had a great week working hard, and are being rewarded with a relaxing weekend so far. There's nothing quite like a chilled out weekend after a busy week. Lush.

This week I thought I would go all guns blazing with a wintery blog post, as I have been desperately waiting to start wearing this gorgeous coat. Although, I'll be wearing from now until probably April before we see sunshine agai…

October 21st 2016. An evening of reflection.

So, picture this: A slightly sleep deprived student perched on the step of the backdoor, coffee to hand. The sweet sound of Nick Mulvey's album First Mind complimenting the silence of an empty house. A cold, crisp evening in midst October and a wandering mind. I decided to write this post as an expression of reflection and contentment, a diversion from the usual materialistic posts on fashion items and styling attempts.

I would firstly just like to apologise for not posting in a few weeks, but as you may or may not know, I have just began my university adventure and despite the fact I have only been here three weeks, I feel as though its already been a lifetime of experiences and lessons learned.

First day of uni
University has honestly been the most insane journey so far: the almost sleepless nights; extreme consumption of alcohol and trying to find my way around university and the town I now call home. I have enjoyed every hungover moment and I simply feel like I needed …

In less than a month I am tooting off to Spain for the festival Benicassim with George and some friends, so the next couple of posts are going to be pretty central to outfits relating to festival attire and what I've been wearing during my trip. So, this is the last 'normal' outfit I will be posting for a few weeks, yet to be honest, this is still relatively holiday appropriate. Hope you enjoy.

sorry about the awful brow

The focal point of this post is evidently this insane shirt by ASOS. When I first came across this shirt on the ASOS website, I absolutely fell in love with the back detailing of it, and also the sketchiness(?) that the print provides. I was also really digging the orange and pink vibes, alongside all the other colours proudly displayed on this piece. However, I must say when it arrived by the lovely DPD that knows me very well now (lol) it really didn't loo…
