Suede Culottes

I think a congratulation's is in order as this is the second time I have rocked a pair of culottes, and quite proudly may I say. I managed to get some blog shots of the grand suede-culotte unveiling so I can share with you all. Aren't I good.

Now onto the good stuff...are you sitting down? I warn you, you should be because I am about to tell you how much these bad-boy suede culottes were.  Ready?  
They were £5. Yes, you heard right they really were £5.  

As you can imagine I nearly passed out in the sale section of my local H&M when I saw them. Helloooo cheap outfit for London Fashion Week! What do you think, suitable attire?

#OOTD - Notting Hill Carnival

My first ever carnival consisted of a prosceco breakfast, gin and tonic lunch and a vodka, lime and lemonade dinner. Needless to say, today I am seriously suffering. Aside from ALL the alcohol and from what my memory is allowing me to remember, yesterday was a very good day spent with some awesome people so thank you for having me Notting Hill, even if you are bloody miles away from my East London abode.  
Waking up this morning to the Uber receipt email was pretty horrific to say the least.

Anyway whats money when you enjoyed yourself, right? 
No, that didn't make me feel ANY better. F you Uber and your bloody surcharge and F me for accepting it and also, F you vodka for making me act like I am balling when my bank balance certainly does not reflect that...
Rant Over.

I bought this dress from Boohoo for a mere £12, as it was such a steal I was super surprised at how nice the fabric was and have now decided I need it a variety of colours.  Well I would like to own it in a variety of colours but last nights uber ride quickly put a stop to that dream.

Right, I am off to sell my life on Depop, eat some form of shit food for dinner (most likely from Iceland - again, cheers Uber) and chill out before hitting up another mad week at work!

Another week another wishlist, however this is one with a difference...

Today brings my all-time ultimate lust list - do you see a pattern? 
Yep, they are all black, all rather classic and all rather expensive (bar the Pandora ring) so no chance of owning any of them any time soon...a girl can dream though right?

Monday Musing - Suede

Some Monday morning inspo for you all - lusting over my new favourite fabric - suede. 

I didn't own a single item of suede up until last week when I went and bought a suede coat AND suede culottes, it then decided to reach 30 degrees in London, which I can assure you is definitely not suede weather.

OOTD: Grey Shades

Dull shades for a dull day; however, it was warm so warranted my legs and arms out!? 
Oh, weather you are causing me some major outfit confusion at the moment.

I rocked this Prey Of London dress last week when I attended my friends birthday BBQ, the oversized, shapeless fit of the dress is not only right up my street but also perfect to cover the food baby I was about to grow, as I was at a BBQ quite renowned for it's delectable spread of the finest chargrilled food.  

It goes something like this... the food appears, I become an unsociable pig, act like I haven't eaten for a week (quite untrue I can assure you), pile my plate sky high with burgers, rolls & potato salad and then, once scoffed I am able to become human again.
Basically, BBQ buffet = my favourite way to eat.  

Enough about food (something I never say) and back to the dress, have you guys ever heard of Prey Of London?  No? Well, me neither.  It was a lovely surprise when they got in touch as the brand ethos is so a 'bit of me'.  They are an online boutique founded in Shoreditch inspired by London, street style and the spirit of the night they mix vintage rock references with a street couture swagger - hellooooo!

Styled with layered necklaces from Happiness Boutique and my lace-up lovelies from Public Desire I was ready to hover around the buffet and eat my weight in burgers.

My favourite blog reads

Yo, and Happy Friday bloggy internet friends, how are we all?  
I am nearing the end of my week off and oh my, how productive it's been on the old blog front; has anyone noticed my 3 posts this week *ahem - pats self on back* 

I did have a couple of outfits to shoot, but the weather has been a right arse this week and mega restricted me on this one fashun-blawgginggg requirement. God damn you rain. Anyway, keep a look out as I've got lots of outfit treats coming right up for you all. Suede culottes from H&M yesterday for a FIVER - say no more.

So, as the weather has interrupted my schedule (that makes me sound a lot more organised than I am) I thought about getting a 'fave reads' post up.  

I spend an unhealthy part of my time reading blogs and perusing Insta for my next dose of outfit inspo so why not share my favourite witty fashionistas with you lovely lot!

Vintage Florals

This week has been one hell of a restful week, so much so I actually keep referring to it as something similar to a Yoga Retreat.

Catching up with friends and family and hitting up my old fave charity shop's has been bloody wonderful but I am now craving the hecticness of London, the tube (who have thought it) and good god, what I would do for a Pornstar Martini. 
Booze free for 1 week now - achievement #YogaRetreat.

As I mentioned I have been visiting a few of the local charity shops and stumbled across some absolute gems; it was like they were waiting for me to come home, rescue them and take them back to London to flaunt about. Exactly what I am going to do - hello vintage get-up for LFW!

This skirt was one of the pieces I spotted, and for a mere £4 who cares if summer is over, I was having it. Styled with all black, leather and my Superstars it looks like something you could pick up in Urban Outfitters - don't you think?

What to wear to a christening

I headed home last weekend to attend my friend's little boys christening, it was the most perfectly sunny day to be all hauled up in a cute village church with my old school friends celebrating such a lovely occasion! 

Naturally, prior to the event I had the usual thoughts of 'what am I going to wear' running through my head and as per, Asos stepped in to help.  

I love this red pleated A-line skirt as these days body con isn't really my bag (might be if I attended the gym, however) and teamed it with my fave off-the-shoulder top resulting somehow in what looks like a Spanish Latina cast-off fresh out of Mask of Zorro.

Monday Musing - My Style Icons


How and what makes you feel inspired? 

I am experiencing a little bit of a style identity crisis - no idea why, maybe as my 29th birthday is on the horizon (what the actual F) I am questioning whether it's appropriate to rock a scrunchie and a crop top anymore?  Actually, the crop top is a major no-no these days seeing as that washboard stomach is a mere memory.  Anyway, I am feeling like a style transformation might be on the cards, nothing crazy as I'll always hold a torch for leopard print - just something a little more 'grown-up'.

In my times of style needs who do I look to... the almighty inspiration destination Pinterest of course!

I typed away searching my all time fave style icons, those go-to babes who have inspired me for years and who will definitely continue to. Don't worry I am not about to embark on a complete life/style overhaul, just update what I am already working with.  

Ferne and Jaime are still firm faves of mine, as you can see in the last style icon post I lovingly featured them alongside Sienna and SJP.  So in today's post, I have decided to inject some inspo from major babes Pandora and Ashley, whose blogs/Instas I have been following/liking/stalking/obsessing over *ahem* for the last couple of years.

Basically this combination is my ultimate inspo and if I could just take a smidgen of their style and sass and add it into my own swag then boom, I got my style identity with that little sprinkle of grown-up-ness! #30nextyearandwhat
