Sunny Sunny Sunny

Finally starting to feel like summer! 
Today, I'm wearing a familiar skirt which you've probably seen before, a striped top (Charity), navy clog heels (Primark), brown satchel (Vintage) and a brown belt which I think is from a (Car boot sale)...must have been a while since I'd bought it! 

My brother kindly took these photographs, but we kind of got carried away with taking ridiculous photos of ourselves. So I had to really search for a decent photograph to show off the outfit and this is what came out haha... tell me what you think xx

A Maxi Dress and Round Sun Glasses

So, I went to London yesterday to have a look in the new Forever 21..why didn't we think of having one here earlier?!
I managed to get an aztec maxi dress for only £19.75 and an Emerald ring for £3.45
I then went to Camden and got some round sun glasses (I'm selling another a larger size on my eBay so have a look!).. I'll definitely be wearing these to Reading festival this year!

Even though I haven't been blogging for long, your comments have been lovely so I hope your liking the looks! :)

It will be Fall soon..

FALL this year is going to be insanely beautiful with this years trends! 
So this summer was about the 70s? Well this autumn is about the 60's and 40's glamour.. 
Oh and my favorite..Jewel tones such as emeralds, rubies and sapphires. Mmmmm, should be good :)

David Emanuel, The Green Skirt

The Emanuel's of course are known for making Diana's dress.. but what else did they make. 
Well they made this skirt :)
Not too long ago, my Auntie gave me this 80's vintage Emanuel skirt which is pure silk with a netting and lace under skirt which is beautiful!
Unfortunately I've never had the chance to wear it and probably never will unless I happen to go to a some sort of ball or something haha. 
So i'm selling it on eBay! But I thought I should let you have a look at it too! 

If your interested in buying, let me know! Or just go straight to the page on eBay..

Camden Town

Happy Friday everyone!
So, yesterday I took a trip to London with my brother, Daniel.
We were meant to just go and see a show (The Complete Works of Williams Shakespeare (Abridged) and I don't think I've ever laughed so much.. you can see it at the New Red Lion Theatre for £10! 
But we took a detour to Camden, one my favourite places in London and I helped my brother shop for his girlfriend whilst I did a little shopping for myself :) 
I thought that this would be a good opportunity to show a green and maroon floral  vintage dress which was brought from a charity shop for only £2!  ....
A Silly Face and Camden Lock

Cream and Black Bag (Next 29.99)

Shoes; ASOS (£29.99)
 Rings! If you haven't been to Camden market, they have lots of tribal shops and this one had really nice gold rings..I brought one too but it's already left my finger green! Nail polish is needed!

This was the pattern of the dress, pretty right? and then I wore a black and gold belt (H&M 5.99)

This was a random post, but I thought I'll let you know what's going on atm! 
Tell me what you think and follow :)

Sleeping Beauty; Katy Perry

I love this woman for her style, music and just about everything else she does BUT now she's the new face for GHD hair products!
The shoot was done a while ago but I still wanted to do a post about it.. it basically consists of hairstyles and clothing through the eras of the 50's, 70's and 80's. 
I've found some similar items so you can try and recreate the look yourself!

'Sleeping Beauty woke up in the fifties, when locks were as glamorous as the frocks'

She looks fabulous here with short 50s curled hair and pink chiffon prom dress, I've found 3 similar dress which can be brought from Miss Selfridge and Rokit for affordable prices (click on the caption to take you to the website for purchasing)


Coral Pleated Dress                        1950's Pale Pink Prom Dress                      Pink Ballet Dress

'Sleeping Beauty woke up in the boho seventies, when parties were wild but hair was relaxed'

I might do another hair tutorial for this look! But going back to the style, high knee boots are in the autumn so have a look! 
                    Suede Knee High Wedge Boots                                               

 'Sleeping Beauty woke up in the eighties, when New Wave was big but the hair was bigger'

And the last look! It's quite striking and over the top but bright colours are popular this summer so there's no harm trying?

Tell me what you think, drop in a message! Lovexxx
