UNIQUES ROAR


You can always count on Topshop for a killer dress, and with their Unique collection recently released, theres plenty to pick from.



Lots of leopard, chiffon, and pony skin. This collection is one of my favourites. The pieces are perfect to mix and match with basics or wear a matching set for a full on look --- Its something that you'll come back to when you need a killer outfit for a event in a years time! Pieces like this are also super limited so its nice to know that not everyone will have the same, but that also means that you need to grab them while you can!

DOROTHY PERKINS STYLE HEROES

The new season is well and truly here, so that means only one thing; its time to shop! In with all the gorgeous new jackets, layers, and colours. While the floaty dresses and denim cut offs take a well need wardrobe break till next Summer.

Teamed with Dorothy Perkins, I am taking on one of the main AW16 trends, 'Sporty Made Pretty.' Think bomber jackets with girlie embroidery, fitted maxi dresses and lots of metallic accents.

We shot three outfits to try and show you the versatility of the trend, from day time to evening, its something that can easily be transitioned by the clever change of a shoe. Also shot by the talented Victoria Metaxas it was a dreamy day with the DP team floating around sunny South Bank.

First of all lets start with the most classic essential of all, the shirt, and lets of course make it an oversized shirt. This one comes in a blue and pink stripe and I'm obsessed with both! Also I'm still crazy about styling causal items in a unique way, hence the odd tying of the shirt. I did this a couple of weeks ago with my boyfriends shirt and people went crazy for it. It was featured in magazines and blogs, with some people hating it but most saying it was brilliant. fashion is subjective so do what you like with it, whatever feels good for you will show. 

DP's jeans are also a new favourite of mine, with the straight leg being super flattering and their denim in particular having a slightly soft feeling --- super comfy! 

Finish off the first look with a killer pair of metallic heels (trainers for the day of course!)



Secondly is the fitted black dress. Taking the hem longer edges up a classic LBD style. This lenght has also become a favourite of mine recently, I just think it has a really chic vibe, even on shorter girls! Im 5'1 and I actually went for the tall version of this dress as i needed it to be more calf lenght than knee. Playing around with those proportions is a really clever way to make high-street look super expensive.

This dress is also perfect for that sporty trend as it looks great with trainers for the day but you can dress it up like I have for the evening with a glitter statement heel. Of course with the winter season coming its acceptable to start playing with metallics and glitter again! 

Finish off this girlie/sporty vibe with the jacket of the season, the bomber jacket. I love that this one is slightly softened by the delicate embroidery. Also lashings of rose gold jewellery is necessary! I'm obsessed with it, I just think that its super flattering on all skin types, and it melts into an outfit more naturally than other metals. 


The last look we went for was another slightly causal look. As I migrate to jeans most of the time it was only fair that I played around with another version, this time taking on patchwork denim. This style is once again a straight leg shape -- my favourite! The darker stripe on the leg is a nod to that sporty vibe, whilst making it very flattering on the leg. 


Keeping this look simple I've gone for the trusted grey t-shirt with a twist. Frills have been everywhere recently and its the perfect way to feminize a look. The grey suede heels also keep the look clean. Its my perfect type of dinner look, a casual outfit with that chic effortless look.

NYFW INSPO




New York fashion week is done, and although everyones running into LFW like lightening, lets take a second to appreciate the chic and simple vibe that was coming from NYC this season.

All hail the flats! Sandals, loafers, boots. It was all about flats. Shirts were also huge news again this season, keep it oversized and striped. A pattern clash with a mini skirt was also a huge trend, and of course, the 'it' bag. JW sure have concurred this season.
