Ello! How are ya? I’m still hibernating from the cold, waiting for the summer…. PLS HURRY! These images were taken back in December by the lavely Lydia Maycock but I never really got round to sharing them with you (Translation: I completely forgot I had them and they were sitting in a dusty folder all alone). But hey ho, they are now out and open to the whole wild world. Back in October, some of you Instagramers may know I went to the AllSole Live event. To those who don’t know, AllSole is an online shop with a huge range of branded shoes from Dr Martens to Michael Kors. They held an event at Red Door in Manchester for Bloggers to explore some of their favourite shoes from the AW16 collection. The event all together was so much fun with lots of prosecco, live music, nibbles and goody bags involved. I know it was a while back but I’m thinking of doing a little throw back post on the event as I have some pictures I would love to share with ya!

Hello, it’s me! How is it Monday again already wahh 😦 I had such a lovely weekend with the most amazing people! It was really lovely bumping into old friends and getting to know others that I don’t know so well. My weekend was full of dancing, singing, laughing and lots of alcohol, which I needed as I was feeling a little crappy this weekend. I’m still feeling the effects of Saturday now. Like, why do I have the hangovers of a 50 year old man? I’m still a baby, surely I should have a super human body.
Firstly i’m reallllllly sorry for like wearing this coat on most of my blog posts, I do own other coats I promise. It’s the only coat that actually keeps me warm!! and it was absolutely freezing that day. You know them coats that look all fury and cosy and you try it on and it doesn’t even keep you warm? This is why I have trust issues with coats and usually just stick with the one I know best (bit like when I choose boys, sorry) Anyway, today I’ve gone all monochrome on ya which is unusual for me as I like to have a lot of colour in my outfits and don’t tend to be all matchy matchy.
Starting with this black and white star print shirt. I got this shirt off ebay for £4! and it looks lovely right? (also matches my name hehehe) but don’t be fooled! It took at least a month to be delivered which didn’t surprise me in the slightest as it’s from China but after 10 minutes of wearing it the buttons were starting to fall off and the material is so so thin. I know things are cheaply made in China but I didn’t expect the shirt to give up on me that quick! Luckily it lasted through the shoot which was what I needed. But like I said it still looks good right? so at least there is one positive.
I styled the shirt with my black high waisted flares from ASOS which I loved and talked about on previous posts. I just love how they elongate my teeny weeny lil legs. Sticking with the monochrome theme I chose a black skinny scarf and fedora hat for accessories, black pointed suede boots a sheepskin coat. It’s so hard to tell you what I like about my outfit when it’s just black and white as I’m so used to describing the colours and details of my outfits so i’m terribly sorry if this post is a little bland BUT there is still a hint of 70’s in there which is always a YES from me! 🙂
Hiiiiii! Can I just apologies for doing a really serious resting bitch face on most of these pictures.. the sun was literally beaming into my eyes and it didn’t help being on top of a building on a very windy day. Anyway moving on, how is it Monday again already? weekends seriously need to stop flying by. I quite like my Mondays, well purely just because it’s my day off and I get to lazy around writing blog posts from my bed (currently eating toasted cheese bagels and spooning my cat)
Today’s post is really quick and simple as i’d like to show you one of my casual day to day go outfits. I have wore my vintage Levi flared jeans from COW simply because they are super comfy and are a petite size which means I don’t have to wear a big heeled shoe/boot with them. I paired them with my Primark blouse which I absolutely adore the delicate neck detail on this one and my Topshop leopard boots which I have already explained how amazing they are in one of my recent posts! To finish my look off I have added a pop of colour with this over the shoulder bag which makes me feel like Suzy Bishop from Moonrise Kingdom every time I wear it! I also added a sheepskin coat because it was a bit chillllehhh! I got this coat from a vintage stall at Leeds festival 2015, it was the last day and they was trying to get rid of all the coats and I managed to grab it for a tenner! Bloody bargain!
Hope you enjoyed me sharing my day to day outfit with you, see you on the next post!

Warming up, Brrrr!
Good afternoon ladies and gents! can we first just take a moment to appreciate how amazing this Peruvian cape/poncho is! I spotted this cape when looking in the Cow vintage sale and with words of their own ‘You can’t be unhappy in em’. I had my eyes on it from the start. I rushed over and picked it up straight away to check the price tag, £8!! it was mine. I clung onto it tightly like a baby in my arms whilst looking around the rest of the shop because no one was taking my baby! Its a gorgeous rust colour with metallic embroidery and a fringed hem line. It has a collar with a tie, 2 pockets and arm holes. I’m literally sat wearing it now whilst I type this, its keeping me warm and cosy and I feel like a super hero with powers or at least a cool as fuck hippy at Stonehenge in the 1970’s.
I have paired my cape with a 70’s style turtle neck as I thought it matched really nicely underneath the cape. This turtle neck is stripey, glittery and has 70s vibes which if you follow me on Instagram you will know that these are 3 of my favourite things! I got this off Depop and it came without a tag so i’m not sure where its actually from. However it’s super snug and I do love how it hugs my petite frame.
To finish off my look I added some black flares, a statement pointed boot and a fedora hat. These flares are amazing at elongating the legs espcecially if your a tiny 5″3 like me! The all black narrow flare gives you the illusion of a longer leg and that’s just what I needed. These are from the ASOS petite range and are a lovely stretchy viscose material.
Hope you enjoy, i’m off to save the universe in my cape!

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.

Hello Hello! I feel like I have really neglected my blog this month so I thought I would do a quick blog post featuring my new Fred Perry shirt!
I was delighted to be asked to take part in the new Fred Perry project #AnnualTraditions. I was asked to put up some of my favourite annual tradition images onto social media using the hash tags #AnnualTraditions #FPAmbassador (You can see some of my annual traditions below) Fred Perry would then use everyone’s images to create little annual tradition clips ‘Always different, Always the same’ with Vicky McClure being the voice over.
As a gift in return Fred Perry sent me one of The Lists Fred Perry polo shirts. I really love the colours on this one, the blue and maroon colours look lovely together.
My Annual Traditions
To see more annual tradition images type in the hash tags #AnnualTraditions #FPAmbassador into your preferred social media site or go to the Fred Perry’s original Instagram, Facebook and Twitter account.
Styling My Fred Perry
With my Fred Perry polo I paired my Topshop cropped kick flare jeans. These jeans are honestly one of the best pairs of jeans I have ever owned. Us girls know the struggle of finding the perfect fit jeans right? Too big on the waist, leg length too long, too baggy on the butt.. but my gosh as soon as I tried these baby’s on I knew straight away it was a match made in moto jean heaven!
I also wore my M&S faux snake skin boots, these boots were limited edition and unfortunately sold out before I could grab my hands on them! A few weeks later I saw them for sale on depop in my size.. I knew right at that moment.. it was fait.
The jeans give the outfit that ‘This is England’ skin head vibe whilst the snake skin boots give the outfit a twist of mod.
