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!

Lightening up the January blues

Hello alllll, hope you’re well. I’m currently hiding away in my favourite cafe (probs not the best place to hide haha) writing up some blog posts for you. I’m having one of them days where any socialising, communicating and talking is a no from me. I’ve got my builders brew, the tunes are on and I’m all by myself and pretty content about it, all I need now is a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign and my cat . January has been so cold and there’s no sign of warmer weather anytime soon. To be honest, all I can think about is that chicken broth waiting for me at home mmmm!

Hello you, hope you’re braving this cold weather! I hate the cold. It gives my skin and lips so much grief that I’m literally slapping moisturiser and lip balm on all day. I’m not enjoying photo shoots in this weather either, a Rudolf runny nose is not a good look and not being able to move my fingers is a pain in the backside too. Anyway, rant about the cold over… I’ve had a really good week this week! I’ve been really productive, got everything that I’ve been putting off for ages done and applied for uni. Yep, I’ve decided that I’m going back but to study a different course and this time I’m staying in my home town Manchester, BECAUSE IT’S THE BEST. Everything about Manchester I love! the people, the cafes, the music scene and even sometimes, just sometimes I love the weather. Manchester wouldn’t be Manchester without the rain and when the tiniest bit of sun comes out we really appreciate it by taking our tops off and wearing little dresses to soak up as much sun as we can before it disappears again.

New Year, just a little different me.

Hello strangers! sorry that I disappeared for a while. Today’s post is going to be a pretty delayed new years post and a pretty long one so grab a cuppa! I started the new year with a nasty cold and on top of that a hangover (new year, same old me lol). I’ve also been building my own website for something exciting which I’ll talk about later. So yeah, they are some of the reasons to why I’ve been missing lately. Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely new year and well done to those who are sticking to new years resolutions, even if it is only the 8th of January. To those who are having the January blues and don’t really have any resolutions, not to worry!! It’s quite normal for some people to feel down in the dumps and hopeless when it comes to a new year.

Hello little Christmas sprouts! Hope you all enjoyed the last couple of days spent with the family and boozing a lil too much. If your tummies aren’t looking like a pregnant women’s, did you even celebrate Christmas? I’m currently eating the last bit of ice cream left over from Christmas, I just can’t stop! 

I can’t tell if I was trying to resemble a bit of Harry Potter here with the mustard and purple combo and those round glasses or if I was embracing my inner geek? Definitely the geek. I’m gonna let you in on a little secret here… YES I DO SOMETIMES STAY IN ON A WEEKEND TO SIT AND PLAY ON MY NINTENDO DS GAMES WITH MY CAT BESIDE ME AND YES I DO LOVE TO DO CROSSWORDS! Phew, glad to get that off my chest. We can’t always make the effort to look cool and spend money on gigs, cigarettes and booze! At 21 years of age, I’m pretty content with searching Ebay for new DS games and I’m really not sorry if I’ve let you down.

If you’re a trend follower of Gucci, you will know that they brought back the geek chic trend. Huge pussy bows, vibrant colours, big framed glasses and prints that your grandma would have probably had on her curtains back in the 70’s. What I love about the geek trend is that you can express your personality with it as much as you want. You can wear your favourite hat, dress, shoes, blouse, and socks all at once! Plus in the end, youre going to end up watching that popular girl you hate fall to her knees in tears because her boyfriend (the fittest boy in college) has chosen to take you to the prom instead. GO GEEKS!

Elllooooo, I can’t believe its Christmas next week arhhhhhh! It goes by so quick. Before we know it, it will be festival season again! *impatiently waits* Don’t get me wrong I love the whole festive spirit malarkey, Christmas markets, and all cosy fairy lights but I feel like I should try to appreciate this time of the year more. A lot of our family don’t get in contact as much since my Mum and Nanna passed, they were the only women who kept the family together!! Christmas to me just seems like another day in the life of Starr Clare and just another (but tastier) Sunday dinner with my Dad, Brother and Sister. Christmas is about spending time with all our loved ones and celebrating so I think maybe next year I need to step up my game and invite the whole Clare clan round to my house!

Good Morning you lot! I thought I would write-up a little morning blog post for you whilst I’m chilling with a cuppa. So, we all know the second Alexa Chung collection came out not so long ago and I thought I would treat myself this time around. I bought two lovely pieces from the collection, one being this shirt and The Lovell Blouse which I’ll be doing a post on also! The Albion shirt was the one that caught my eye first. The Oriental print is seen everywhere this season and I can’t resist those satin blossom prints, oh so dreamy. I really like the classiness of Oriental prints and I think they can look very elegant when worn correctly.

Hey kittens, hope all is well! I’ve been running around all day and I’ve finally had a chance to sit down so I thought I would do a quick post for ya whilst I drink my cuppa!

So, these shots are by the lovely Elle check out some of her work here. We had a hugeeeee stroll around Manchester taking some shots until our little legs were hurting. It was a lovely day and the sun was shining so I can’t complain really. This dress is a vintage dress I bought from COW a few years back and I still wear it to death today. Its a lovely patterned silk with a huge collar (always a fave). The dress has a really feminine feel so I decided to add some masculine to the outfit by pairing it with a biker jacket and these beautifulllllllll boots that were sent to me by CAT Footwear and ohhhh I am just a little bit in love. They are suede AND leather so I get the best of both worlds and they also have a western/punk vibe to them. They are super comfy to walk in almost like memory foam and they haven’t even rubbed my feet yet!! These will definitely be on my feet this Autumn and right through to winter fo sure!

P.s I can’t forget the earrings! how pretty are they? Bonjouk Designs have amazing and unique jewelry from all over Turkey and they stock up on lots of lovely new items every Sunday so go check them out! You can also get 10% off using my code ‘starr10’

That’s it for today! Enjoy

Iyaaaaaa. Hope y’all good. Last Sunday I went to Leeds Fezzie so I thought I would show you some little snaps I took. Some pretty some not so pretty!! Oh my god, the mud. I’ve never seen anything like it! These pictures are definitely sugar coated. It was past my ankles at one point and me being me didn’t even put wellies on! My poor little Dr Martens are currently still in my back garden caked in mud! Anyhow, this didn’t stop us from having a good time! and how pretty do the flares look! We had a great time getting stuck in the mud, eating cheesy chips and watching our favourite bands even if it did feel like we were on a army training course at times haha! The Jack Rocks This Feeling tent was definitely the highlight of the festival and I said the same thing about it at YNOT Festival. It has new and upcoming bands playing right through the day into the night, the friendliest vibe and you can treat yourself to a cheeky JD and coke or 10 (JD honey and lemonade for me, cheers!)

Into The Office Or Not?

Bonjour! how are ya? I’m currently enjoying a cup of tea in my favourite cafe listening to my favourite tunezzzz so I thought I’d do a little blog post for ya. Today’s post is a kind of casual/work outfit! something that’s suitable for the office but also for days out. I’m gonna break the rules and start with the best first. The blouse. This Victorian style blouse is absolutely stunning and was kindly sent to me from Judas Clothing along side some other beautiful blouses. Pair this blouse with some tailored pants or midi skirt and your ready for the office OR with jeans or a mini A line skirt for some Françoise Hardy 60’s vibes. I like to mix and match so I decided to pair mine with some basic fray hem kick flare jeans, a smart blazer and a pointed shoe. The way I have styled it gives you the opportunity to be able to wear it to the office, a day out or even a date. The cropped kick flares are from Primark and are only £7! I repeat, £7!! They are a lovely thick denim and fit really nicely. They also look way more expensive than Primark which is a bonus! The tweed blazer, I think its tweed.. ( I should know this) I found in a vintage shop called ‘Ryan Vintage’ which has sadly closed down now waaahhh 😦 If your a vintage lover from Manchester you will know which one I mean! The shoes are another gem from Primark which I have already featured in a previous post about where I had a magpie moment and could not resist getting them at such a cheap price! Even if they do slice my feet open but if you want to wear pretty shoes then ya gotta deal with the pain eh? To finish off my look I wore these cool little Ray-Ban glasses which are actually my photographers (cheers Akash haha)

So that is it for today! I’m off because i’m craving a KFC Oreo Krushem!!!!
