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.

Autumn Colour Palettes

FASHION

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.

Saying goodbye to Summer

Summer is over and I definitely have the blues! Although Manchester is being kind and gifting us with that extra little bit of sunshine lately! I’m definitely a summer gal at heart but I can say I’m excited for big coats and layers. I’ll miss the pale denims, florals, flowing dresses and the occasional ugly sandal but it’s time to say goodbye and put them to the back of my wardrobe for next year. This summer has been a good’n! Festival season is always a winner because you get to sit in a field drinking beers and watching your favourite bands with your favourite people. I have also had amazing opportunities collaborating with brands and to watch my blog and followers grow so much in a short amount of time means a lot to me.

So, this is probably the last summery outfit you will see on my blog until the sunshine greets us with it’s presence again. Let’s start with the culottes. Culottes were massive this summer and they came in a variety of different styles from metallic pleats to light wash denim. These babies are originally from Zara but I found them on Everythingfivepounds.com for well, 5 pounds! I was so happy with this bargain as they are a good quality denim and they fit like a glove (I clearly haven’t used an iron again lolol) Pale denim goes very well with floral prints so I decided to pair them with a yellow floral high neck top which will also look cute under a mustard or brown Pinafore for Autumn/Winter!

Jacket – Boohoo | Top – Primark | Culottes – Zara | Bag – Primark | Shoes – New Look

 The rust suede tassel jacket goes so well against the yellow florals. However, I have had the jacket for a while now and it’s definitely been worn to death. The tassels are a little tangled and matted so I think it’s time to ditch it and upgrade for a much warmer one for the winter. The bag I absolutely love! The suede patchwork gives you them 70’s feels and the colours will take me right through to Autumn too (p.s it’s a Primark bargain so grab it before it’s gone!). To finish off my look I wore a pair of white pumps because white shoes go with any summer outfit right?

Jacket – Vintage | Jeans – Mango | Top – Handmade by me. Fabric from http://www.abakhan.co.uk/ | Boots – Topshop (similar here) | Bolo Tie – Mobs and Monsters

Good morning and happy Wednesday! It’s been a little bit hectic lately with moving to uni and all that malarkey but I had a little free time this morning so I thought I would spend it writing on my blog for you lot.

This is a shoot I did last week with one of my favourite people to work with, Akash! Share some love and go check out his work. Ok, so I went for a Western vibe outfit because I wanted to show off this amazing vintage denim tassel jacket I purchased a few weeks ago. How amazeeeeeeeeee is it?! I feel like I should be in one of those old school cowboy films… just waiting for my cowboy boyfriend to come along and pick me up and whisk me away through the desert on his horse whilst chewing a piece of straw… ha! keep dreaming Starr. This jacket would work great for festival wear or for chilli nights out on the town. It’s the BEST jacket to dance in because the tassels move with your body and make prancing around a whole lotttttaaaa fun! To update the outfit and give it a modern touch I paired it with my fave velvet leopard boots and a little hand made top by me! Because star print and denim? We can’t go wrong there. To complete the look I wore my bolo tie (which I only just found out that you are suppose to wear it with a shirt like a tie! hence the name, durrrrrrr!) to stick with the western vibes.

Hope you enjoyed today’s post, i’m off to find me a cowboy lover!

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

All about the Beret

Oh hey! How are ya? I feel like there should be an Eiffel Tower behind me but nope just rainy manc! and March why are you so cold? This always happens doesn’t it? We pray to wake up to snow and Christmas day but we are given nothing but rain or the odd bit of sun! Then February and March come and BAM! snow everywhere!! Like seriously c’mon March I’m ready for spring now.. I’m sick of wearing the same old jumper and jeans combo.

Todays outfit is.. well, a little red.. I’ve been obsessed with red lately and I love how it stands out against the duller shades and gives you that pop of colour. The cord jacket I found in a charity shop, its about 3 sizes big but I had to get it because I instantly fell in love ❤ Also I kinda like to wear my coats/jackets oversized. I teamed it with a red lip and beret. I love this beret, at first I went for the black one and had a good stare in the mirror for 10 minutes (ok maybe not that long) but then I decided to give the red beret a try as I wanted to experiment rather than wearing the usual plain black hats AND I’m so glad I did! It’s such a cute little number and adds that little bit of French girl look to any outfit.

The faux snake skin bag I’ve only worn around twice as I only bought it for a festival because I needed a smallish kind of bag to carry my things around. However when I got home I neglected her for a while as I didn’t think she matched with most of my outfits but now she’s back! I don’t know how long for… but at least she’s back. I really need to stop referring items as people.

The top (which is actually a dress) is a really lovely ribbed knit which I tuck into skirts or jeans to wear as a top instead. It has long sleeves with a slight high neck and its supaaaa comfy! With the knit I wore my favourite pair of jeans, The cropped kick flare! They really don’t look like kick flares here because I forgot to iron them before I left the house as you can tell, oops. (Thanks Dad for not telling me I had creased pants!!) These jeans are the best fit I’ve had in a while. Not too big on the waist, not too long on the leg and not too baggy on the bum! a common problem for me when trying to find the perfect jeans because I’m a teeny 5’3 with a 24 inch waist. I still convince myself that I’m going to grow taller but lets be realistic, that’s not going to happen now 😦 To finish my look I wore a printed scarf and suede, black pointy boots which seem to be appearing on every blog post lately!

Hat – Ebay/ Skinny scarf – Boohoo/ Shirt – Ebay/ Flares – ASOS/ Boots – Boohoo/Coat – Vintage

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! 🙂

Enjoy

Hey guyssssss! How are ya? I’m still in a food coma from eating excessive amounts of ice cream when I got in last night whilst watching Bridget Jones’s Diary.. On my own.. This was my first valentines in a while that I had spent by myself *cries* – joking! who needs boys when I’ve got myself? #gurlpower It’s a good job I love my own company a little bit too much. However I did go for a meal in the evening with a lovely friend of mine which was really sweet but to those who spent the day with lovers I hope your day was filled with love and happiness!

ANYWAYYYY moving on from the soppy stuff, today’s post is all about Boohoo because lately it’s seriously winning my heart. Boohoo has upped their game massively the past year or so. I found myself steering away from Boohoo in the past as it used to be full of body con dresses and tacky heels (sorry boohoo) but it just wasn’t my style! Oh but now its full of treasures at amazing prices! They have sooo many seventies style clothes that I’ve had to stop myself actually going onto the website because my bank balance goes to £0.00 in minutes AND they even have free delivery after 9pm! Boohoo I love you and Happy Valentines from me ❤

Ok so a few weeks ago I ended up spending most of my evening on Boohoo sifting through the sales, I had found so many bargains that I just couldn’t resist. I have decided to show you an outfit that I put together with some of the pieces I had bought.

Taa daaaaa! minus the bag and coat I got this outfit for around £25, how amazing!? Thank god for sales. Starting with my absolute favourite piece of this outfit, the jumper! I was so lucky as there was only a few left and with only a medium size, so I decided to take a risk for this gem and buy it anyway and it fits perfectly! This jumper just screams the 70’s in my face, the colour and pattern remind me of a 70’s curtain that my Nan probably would of had in her living room back in the 70’s. I love how it can be worn as a T shirt for cooler days or layered underneath for the colder days, basically it’s not too thin or too thick! What I also love about this jumper is that it goes with mostly everything!! wear it with a mini or midi skirt, a pinafore,  skinny/mom/loose fit/flared/cropped jeans (basically any style of jeans) or even throw on a pair of dungarees on top. Then you are a 70’s style queen ready to go without the effort!

I paired my jumper with some brown petite corduroy flares. I got these for £10 which is an amazing bargain and they do look lovely but when they arrived I saw that the cord wasn’t as stiff and as textured as I wanted it to be and after trying them on I was even more disappointed. The fit was terrible. Partly it was my fault for thinking I was Kate Moss and ordering a size UK 4 but then I did order the next size up (UK 6) which is my usual size and I still wasn’t happy with the fit. As you can see on the pictures the leg is a bit too short and they are also a little too tight around my thighs so the material started to gather and crease. So if you do decide to buy these flares I recommend you buy the next size up. Apart from the fit they are a really gorgeous pair of trousers and i’ll definitely be keeping them. You can buy these flares over at my Depop

Boots boots boots! my collection of pointy heeled boots is getting a bit out of hand now. I already had a pair of black pointy boots so why did I need another? BECAUSE THEY ARE SUEDE! (and cheap) that’s why. Suede, pointy, black and heeled? now that’s my thang. Because they are black you can literally wear these boots with anything and they are super comfy! I’s a big thumbs up from me Boohoo 🙂

I added the sheepskin coat and bag because I thought they matched really nicely with the 70’s vibes. For accessories I wore a gorgeous bohemian necklace from Mobs and Monsters, you can find their shop here. They kindly enough sent me some goodies to model and I am so happy with them! I feel i’m in dreamy bohemian necklace heaven every time I wear them.

Feeling Festive

FASHION

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.

76138111312

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.
