In The Fringe

Who says you need to be festival bound to wear a cocktail of crochet and fringing?!  I spotted this incredible top on a member of Topshop staff in the Oxford Street branch last week and dragged my friend Charlotte off in search of it.  It’s pretty pricey (£65) for something that is essentially made of holes but it does have leather patches all over it which have clearly bumped up the price.  It’s got great movement in the long fringe trim and is light enough for hot summer days so all round a perfect summer staple!

The Unconventional

Well I launched my first YouTube Lookbook yesterday so I hope you’re all enjoying that.  I know there’s plenty of you that enjoy my outfit posts so here’s another one from the video.  I love the neon popsof colour on this Dorothy Perkins skirt, it’s a more fun, less conventional way to rock a floral print this season.

Floral Re-Mix

Exciting day today as I’m heading off to go and shoot my alternative version of the Christmas Lookbook with River Island.  It does feel slightly odd that I’ll be donning faux fur, sequins and all number of Autumn/Winter outfits when it’s 30 degrees outside, but hey, it’s Christmas in July as we bloggers know it.  
Today’s outfit is yet another from the floral Lookbook that I’ve shot and just demonstrates how much I love mixing prints.  Florals and animal print do actually compliment each other and obviously (despite the temperature) I will always add a touch of leather!

Flourish

Today’s post a little later than usual but I’ve spent the afternoon filming a ‘Lookbook’ for YouTube.  The theme will be florals for summer and this outfit will be included.  As normal my outfit posts will go up every weekday but then I plan on doing a round-up of these outfits in the form of a YouTube video Lookbook.  This will be my first one just to trial and see how it goes as I do get requests to do video lookbooks quite often.  I plan on uploading the finished edit of the video next week around Wednesday time so please do head over to my current YouTube channel, as bare as it is right now, to subscribe and catch my video when it goes live 🙂

So Fancy

I have some amazing news today!  I was nominated for an ASOS Fashion Finder Award a few weeks back and yesterday I found out that I won!!!  The award I was up for was for ‘Working the Trends’ and I’m so honored to be selected as the winner as I do love my trends 🙂  Check out the other award winners and runners-up here on the Fashion Finder website.  This is my first award as a blogger and after almost 6 years of blogging it really is a pleasure to receive.  I’m not all about awards, I love to see tweets, emails, comments etc from you  guys hearing that you enjoy my blog and that makes all the hard work worth while…but this is a welcome treat for me 🙂

21st Century Marilyn

Hello Monday, I’m glad to see you, I’ve had a pretty action packed weekend!  On Saturday I was sent to the East Coat Live Festival in Ipswich courtesy of F+F Clothing and BlinkBox Music.  Some of you might have seen the odd picture on Instagram but I wasn’t able to upload as much as I wanted because there was zero 4G signal there.  Why is that when you go to a big event like that, and even at Fashion Week, the main area becomes a huge mobile signal black hole?!  Tres annoying!  Anyway I’ll be doing a full post on all those shenanigans tomorrow.  In the mean time I’ll leave you with today’s outfit which is exactly what the titles says, a 21st century Marilyn.

The Summer Mix

I‘m very much a blazer, tee, jeans kinda girl and so his is my summer twist on my essential style.  Swapping those jeans for this season’s must-have, culottes.  These culottes (Forever 21) are shorter than most on the high street at the moment and that’s why I like them, they’re different.  They can be worn super high waisted and I just love the mint floral print…especially with a tan 🙂
