That Is One GORGEOUS Pair Of Shoes!

So I was just lazily surfing on the Internet, checking out new clothing items and what not, as you do, and I suddenly saw an advert for Grey City shoes. Now I've never heard of this brand before so I decided to check them out, and OH EM GEE! Their shoes are so gorgeous!

(Grey City - Blaire)
 
Grey City's designs reflect their mantra of designing shoes for women who refuse to conform to the ordinary.
 
The over the top heel and platform size will definitely make you stand out, and if that doesn't, the cross cut out mst certainly will!
 
I absolutely love the Blaire shoe, so it's, of course, making its way onto my wish list!

Luxe Sportswear - Varsity Jackets


We've seen luxe sportswear pass by our trend radars a couple of times over the years, but I've always chosen to ignore it. I'm hardly the kind of people who follows exact trends anyway, but I never got the point of this one. I mean, tracksuit bottoms are for exercising or lounging round the house, right?
 
WRONG! This time around, I've noticed that many companies have upped their game and I've been seeing so many gorgeous varsity jackets! I know I want to get one, but there are loads, so I thought I'd share them all with you :)


Image 1 of ASOS Varsity Sweat Jacket With Leather Sleeves





Of course I went to ASOS first, and I'm so glad I did. This is your classic varsity jacket, very plain and simple, however, it has leather sleeves! Which makes me love it even more, and kind of makes it stand out in the never ending sea of sportswear! Haha.
 
You can pair with a faux leather skirt, like in the picture, or pair with jeans for an everyday, laid back look. Of course, a gorgeous pair of wedge high tops will complete the look.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Next up, we have this varsity jacket from Boohoo. The chenille letter adds some much needed detail and the navy colour will go with anything!
 
I like this jacket in particular as it has a hood; I know what you're thinking, what's so great about a hood? But varsity jackets almost aways just have a collar, so the hood adds some dimension and fullness; And will keep you hair dry in the rain! LOL
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
For those of you who don't like the completely laid back look, then this varsity jacket from River Island is definitely for you.
 
The colour is sleek and stylish, and the style and cut are a lot more professional looking.
 
Perfect for that luxe sportswear look on a night out!

Monday Fashion Favourites xo

Hey everyone!
 
I hope you all had a great weekend.
This is a list of my top fashion favourites this Monday, hope you enjoy!


 
 
 
We all know metallic is a huge trend for this season, so when I saw this jacket I fell in love! I have an almost 'edgy' style, so biker type jackets always appeal to me.
 
 
I've also never been the kind of person who would really lean towards metallic clothes as I think it's quite easy for it to look tacky. However, I take back my words for this jacket, the garment looks very stylish and the pale colour means it's perfect for everyday wear.
 
 
You'll turn heads.. but for all the right reasons!
 
 






Now I thought I'd include a bodycon skirt as it is the perfect go to item for Summer. You can pair with a crop top and a pair of buckled boots for a laid back day look, or add a sheer blouse and heels to hit the town.

If you're not confident the form fitting material isn't every girls best friend, so stick with the darker colours to help slip down any subtle lumps and bumps.

Paisley Jacquard Playsuit



 
 
 
For those of you a little more daring, we have this paisley jacquard playsuit from Topshop. The tailoring is high quality and the raised neckline gives that original design flare. The colour is beautiful and will look great for a Summer evening out.
 
Style with a pair of nude heels to elongate those legs, a nude clutch, a belt to cinch in the waist, and some gold bangles to complete the look.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


 
 
 
We all love a graphic tee, so of course I had to include this! With the open armholes, crew neck, raw edges and roomy fit this top just screams to me laid back fashion. This is the perfect go to item, with the plain colour and subtle graphics you can pair this with anything for a great look.
 
Personally I'd style this top with a high waisted, distressed pair of denim shorts, a lace bandeau, casual sandals and some over sized sunglasses for that perfect look.
(Wildest Heart Muscle Tank)












Now that the weather is getting warmer, it's the perfect opportunity to bust out the leggings again!
I lived the whole of last summer in my leggings; I'm not fond of getting my legs out, but sometimes it's just too hot to wear trousers, so leggings are the perfect middle ground.

They appeal even more to me now that I have found these Black Milk leggings, the print is quite bold but beautiful. Although these also have a few different colours mixed into the print, I can see them going perfectly with anything!

But if this print isn't for you, go visit the Black Milk website to check out all the other amazing designs they sell.
(Call of Napoleon Leggings)

T-Mobile bashing and stylish iPhone 5 cases!

Anyone here got a mobile plan with T-Mobile? If you have then you'll understand this little rant.. YET AGAIN T-Mobile have raised their prices again! Now when I signed up for my iPhone 4S plan, I figured that the price I was signing up to pay, would actually stay my contract price. But no, nothing is ever that simple. T-Mobile have now raised my price plan yet again, it's raised almost £2 a month since it first started. Now I know £2 doesn't sound like a lot, but come on, money is money!

Anyways, this was the last straw and I've been thinking about just paying off my remaining contract length with them and getting out quickly before they can try pulling anything else, and this will also give me a chance to upgrade to the iPhone 5. So of course, the nerd that I am, I started looking into price plans and what not, then I decided that if I get it, I'm of course going to have a beautiful case to go with it.

Now in normal shops, good looking iPhone 5 cases are hard to come by, so I went to good old trusty etsy.com where I found some amazing ones!

Here's just a few of my favourites, and let me know which one I should get, and which ones are your favourite!


 
Punk style full street rock style tip rivets iPhone Cases iPhone 4 case ,iPhone 4s cases iPhone 5 Case sj86
http://www.etsy.com/shop/newcase £12.73

So I couldn't resist putting this case in my number one position. I absolutely love anything with spikes on, and my god, this case definitely has enough!
 
Although maybe not the most practical phone case ever, it will definitely stand out and give your outfit that perfect grunge detail. A phone case is after all a great accessory.
 
The shop, Newcase, on Etsy, hand make each of these cases, along with many other beautiful designs, so they will also be perfect for a gift to any tech savvy fashionista!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Baby Blue iPhone 5 Case,  Polka Dot iPhone 5 cover
I also found this totally cute polka dot case from pearlreef on Etsy. This bright coloured polka dot print is so in trend for Spring and Summer this year, so make sure your phone is looking it's best!
 
The gloss shine really makes the colours pop and the durable plastic material means you don't have to worry about accidents.
So grab one now at http://goo.gl/YVUjq for only £10.05
 
 
 
 
 
 

 



 
Now for you lovers of all things weird, this ouija board phone case is definitely for you!

This is totally different from anything I've seen before and will the perfect conversation starter, and why not,in your spare time, contact some wandering spirits.

CaseFrog sell a variety of stylish cases, so visit http://goo.gl/g009Q and grab yours for only £7.47

Okay, I am totally in love with this case from SunnySeason. I'm usually not a floral kind of girl, but the studs, in the shape of a cross, give that grunge edge without it being too in your face. Perfect for everyday use!

Also the floral print is absolutely perfect for Spring and will keep your phone looking fresh and fashionable.

At only £8.04, you just have to check them out, http://goo.gl/fcDMh
 
 
Last, but definitely not least, we have another gorgeous phone case. The hot pink is perfect for Spring, and the damask pattern will never grow old!

I especially love the use of shades in this case, it makes the colour a lot more subtle, but will still make the perfect accessory.

Vassap have a ton of totally awesome phone cases, you can grab this one for £12.70, or go check out the others at http://goo.gl/1Ou6W

Statement jewellery.

Hey everyone!

I've always been the kind of person who dresses a lot in black, or plain colours, and rely a lot on my accessories to do the talking. So over the years I have developed a lot of love for statement pieces of jewellery, especially large rings.

I've created a list of my favourite statement pieces right now from, www.folkster.com, www.asos.com and www.regalrose.co.uk. These websites are definitely in my top 5 places to shop, so go and check them out!

I'm in love with Folkster!

Hey everyone!

For years now I have been totally obsessed with Jeffrey Campbell shoes, I have gradually been building up my collection and love love love the original style of them all. Unfortunately over here in the UK the newer shoes out are hard to come by.  So of course, when I was on www.folkster.com I literally DIED with happiness at seeing these.



Now, this style of shoe are the ones that I've had on my wish list for a while now, and they finally got them in at www.office.co.uk, so of course straight away I wanted to buy them! But I'm glad I waited, I adore anything with spikes on.. so to have my favourite Jeffrey Campbell shoes, with spikes on the back was totally amazing! At £157.42 they're something I can't just grab straight away :( but I'm definitely saving up, and getting these as quick as possible!

All go over to www.folkster.com to check out the rest of their Jeffrey Campbell stock, and the rest of their amazing stuff.

13 Personal Questions.

Hey everyone!
So again, as I'm fairly new into blogging I thought I'd do another get to know me tag, but with a bit more personal questions. This was actually a tag I found on YouTube, but hey ho, why not do it over here.
1. What do you order at Starbucks?
I've never actually been to Starbucks, so I can't tell you what I'd order! Someone want to take me? Haha.

2. One thing in your closet you cannot live without?
Skinny jeans. Mainly black.. I totally live in these, their perfect to pair with anything.

3. What’s one thing most people probably don’t know about you?
I always sleep with my childhood toy, a stuffed Puffalump elephant. Do you remember these from the 90's?! 

4. Name one thing you want to do before you die?
Visit New York, that's my goal.

5. What’s one food you cannot live without?
Poptarts! They are so delicious, I just wish here in the UK we had the amazing flavours that they do in the US!

6. What quote/phrase do you live by?
“I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”  This is a quote from Alice in Wonderland, which is possibly my favourite film and story of all time! I love this quote just because it means that we are forever learning and growing as a person, so there's no point going back.

7. What’s your most listened to song on itunes?
Lonely Hearts Club - Marina and the Diamonds. However I am so obsessed with music, that this often changes.

8. What kind of style would you define yourself as having?
A mismatch. I really don't label my style at all, I probably wear clothes that originate from all different styles, I just wear whatever I like! Though if I had to.. Maybe a little grunge, or Nu Goth I guess.

9. Favourite number?
15. No idea why.

10. Two Hobbies?
Reading and writing? Haha.

11. Two Pet Peeves?
People who whistle along to songs.. there's really nothing wrong with this, it just grates on my nerves
and.. People who feel the need to speak REALLY loudly in public, and most of the time this person will be sitting behind you on a bus or something so you end up having a horrible headache.

12. Guilty Pleasures?
Chocolate definitely, I know I shouldn't eat so much because it's so bad for me, but it tastes so good!
Also pyjama days.. you've always go to have those.

Live your life in RAINBOW BRIGHTS.


Hey everyone!

This season, we're all about the bright beautiful colours, the bolder the better. So I'm going to get right down to business and show you my favourite rainbow bright items of the week!
Enjoy..

GREEN

inlovewithfashion.com £32
To start off our rainbow of many colours we have this gorgeous apple green dress from inlovewithfashion.com. This dress has a gorgeous cowl neckline and delicate straps in the back which makes this a perfect summer dress! The cut of the dress means it sits perfectly on the waist so this will definitely be a flattering fit on anyone.

Tone down the colour with a black cropped leather jacket and black Chelsea boots. This will add that rocker chick vibe, and the cropped jacket will also help to exaggerate that pulled in waist.

In my books this is the PERFECT summer dress.








BLUE
Topshop £30
Next up we have every fashionistas must have.. disco pants! We've seen these a lot this past season, but we're not getting rid of them any time soon, they're also perfect for those of us trying to cover up our winter white legs!

Not just for the 80's anymore, these bright treggings from Topshop will add that bold detail to any outfit. Pair with a cute black crop top, a pair of chunky heeled boots and over sized sunglasses for a completely gorgeous summer time look.












PURPLE
Image 3 of Rock 'n' Rose Penelope Oversized Purple Floral Crown Head Band



Now for those of you who find wearing bold colours a bit daunting, I've chosen something a little more subtle. This gorgeous flower crown from ASOS features roses in a gorgeous dusty purple, a pop of colour within an outfit is all you need to stand out.

This rose crown is so dainty and feminine that paired with a lace skirt and leather jacket can make for the perfect rock princess look.

So grab this perfect accessory now for that Lana Del Rey style.




ASOS £36


PINK

We all know shoes are a girls best friend, so why settle for second best. These pink Dr. Martens from Office are the perfect accessory. The colour is adorable, perfect for Summer and the style will never go out, Dr. Martens are a shoe for life.
Even better, this particular style, has a rubber upper, so they double as wellys! Though a lot more stylish than wellys I've seen. So these are absolutely perfect for the unpredictable Spring weather. In England, there's always rain..






Office £75

ORANGE
The Cambridge Satchel Company £115 - £125



Okay, I admit, I am a total bag addict, so I knew I had to include this in my rainbow brights list when I saw it. The Cambridge Satchel Company is the place to go if you're looking for a stylish, well made, gorgeous satchel. The quality is amazing and you can basically get them in any colour your heart desires.
I personally love the fluoro collection as the neon colour of this bag will make any dull outfit pop and as this satchel comes in sizes from 11" to 14" there is the perfect one for everyone!





YELLOW



Last but not least we have this cute yellow dip hem top from River Island. With it's over sized fit and dip hem this is the perfect fashionable throw on for an every day look.
This top will be the perfect staple item to any one's wardrobe, just throw this on with a pair of skinny jeans and converse and you'll still look stylish, even on your laid back days.
River Island £18
