Hello, It’s me! I had been a little behind on my blog lately but I’m back with lots of new ideas and content to share with ya! So, today is all about cleaning out that wardrobe and letting go of those jeans you’ve probably had since being 18 years old. Little exaggeration? uh no, you’d be surprised how many of us keep useless items of clothing for so many years. Being a fashion blogger with no actual ‘personal style’ means my wardrobe can get a little out of hand sometimes, my rail was ready to collapse last week but my dad came to save the day just in time. I have no more room on my rail whatsoever, so a lot of my clothes get put in a spare room now which my dad is NOT happy about. He’s always confused to why I have so many clothes and why I cling on to things I never actually wear no more. I’ve always been emotionally attached to clothes, is that weird? probably. I find it so hard to get rid of clothes when they have made amazing memories with me, been to places with me, made me look sassy when going through breakups, helped me experiment with style and most important of all, covered up my naked body. Its kind of like a baby’s blanket.
Ello, hope you all had a fab Halloween! Who’s eating the left over trick or treaters sweets because I am definitely am haha. Todays post is a little collaboration post with Nobody’s Child. Nobody’s Child is London based brand that has the latest trends at affordable prices. I had never heard of this brand before until they contacted me about sending me some goodies and I’m so glad they did! When I went onto the website I instantly fell in love, there was too many beautiful things to pick from. I had to send the links of different items back to them so they could help me choose oops! On the website you can find anything from metallic playsuits to velvet dresses, floral culottes to star print blouses and satin camis to a plain grey T. You want it they’ve got it.
Two of the pieces I got my hands on were this black mini pinafore and roll neck top which the colours are so lovely on! They both go really well together as styled on the website. The coloured roll neck gives the all back outfit a pop of colour and cosiness but still leaves the black pinafore to do the talking.

To keep the outfit’s simplicity I threw on some tights, mini bag and those good ol’ Dr Martens!
See you on next one
Hey! Hope October is treating you well. I’m definitely feeling the cold here in Huddersfield, I’ve already got the sheepskin and scarf out. My favourite thing about Autumn (AFTER HALLOWEEN OF COURSE!) is the colour palette it brings. The rusty oranges, golden yellows and brick browns give our layered outfits that dreamy Autumn feel.
For this outfit I decided to stick with the orange and brown tones, wearing a burnt orange suede pinny with a cream polka blouse underneath to separate the oranges because we all know the full on dorito wouldn’t be a good look. The CAT boots I featured in a previous post, these babies haven’t been off my feet! They are so so comfy and literally go with anything! I’ve been slipping them on with jeans, mini and midi dresses/skirts and even with culottes.

The bag I managed to grab off Depop as soon as I lay my eyes on it. I fell in love with that rusty orange and mock croc combo so I couldn’t resist. I didn’t realise how big the bag actually was until the postman delivered it. I was expecting a standard size shoulder bag but oh no. Or maybe
the bag isn’t so big but I make it look huge by being so tiny! who knows? Anyhow, it will be a handy bag for when it comes to taking books to uni.
To finish off the look I threw on my leopard coat which is always a favourite every year for autumn/winter and my trusty baker boy hat for those windy bad hair days.
Hiiiii friends, strangers, lovers and animals! It’s nice to be back after having a little break from Instagram and blogging. Sometimes we get trapped into this circle of always trying to please people and feeling like we have to upload everything that’s happening in our lives (I’m guilty for this since I’ve become a blogger) but I can tell you I have never felt more refreshed after taking a 5 day break from social media. Last weekend I went to a festival with some lovely friends and I didn’t have any signal on my phone to check my Emails, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and YouTube! That’s a hella lot of checking! But I was glad. Not being able to check my phone made me appreciate the present moment, something I haven’t done for a while. I was enjoying sitting around in the campsite without having my head stuck in my phone and being able to watch bands without filming the whole bloody gig! I returned home feeling a lot more positive and I still didn’t feel like I had to check social media straight away, I was just happy to see my dad AND my cat of course! However, there’s always a downside isn’t there? I’ve only gone and brought a chest infection back with me so whilst I’m bed bound not able to do anything else, I thought I would share these lovely shots with you taken by Arthur Yushi. You can check out some of his amazing work here.
This dress!! I fell in love as soon as I lay my eyes on it. I was sifting through depop looking at 60s mini dresses and I was so happy I found this vintage gem. It fits perfect and I can’t get enough of that contrast panel! Dreamy dreamy dreamy. You know when you have that one dress that your scared to wear because it’s so pretty? That was my situation with this dress. It was actually stuck in my wardrobe for at least a year and I kept saying to myself that I would save it for a special occasion. Anyway, that special occasion never happened so I thought I would do a little outfit shoot with it on! Yes, I’ve cropped the shoes out because I forgot to bring the right pair of shoes with me which meant I had to wear the ones that I already had on and they didn’t match with the dress but hey ho, the dress does all the talking!
Hope you enjoyed this post!
Fluff, Lace and Suede
Hello little Christmas fairies! Still in a food coma from eating too many sprouts and celebrations? I am. I hope you had a very merry Christmas as much as I did and that Santa brought you everything you wished for and more!
This weekend I went out to celebrate Christmas with my friends so I thought I would share with you what I wore.
THE COAT! how pretty and fluffy is it!? and for £10 in the Primark sale I just fell in love with it even more. Apart from getting stuff you would never imagine stuck in this coat and creating little fur balls this coat is worth the ten pounds! I got so many compliments at weekend some lovely and some a little bit strange.. ”I think I saw you on the top of my Christmas tree” and ”You look like a sheep, but in a good way!” This coat will give your party look that little boost of sassiness and make you feel a million dollars even if its Primark and costs only ten English pounds, I REPEAT £10! Grab it while its still there because like they say, you don’t know what you’ve got until its gone!
With my coat I wore a white lace mini from H&M. I bought this dress last year for a special gig I went to and its been left in my wardrobe ever since, so I thought I would take it out to revive the party with plenty of red stripe and all night groovin. I love the sleeve details and the low cut back on this dress and it also gives off some boho vibes.
My suede boots are from Primark and were also £10! Primark you are winning my heart lately.. the boots are a really lovely faux suede material and have a circle block heel. The only downside of these boots is that I would of liked them to come over the knee rather than just below but I do like how the boots completed my outfit and gave it some 70’s lovin.
