Check on check











Scarf - c/o Oasap (here)
Dress - c/o Chiara Fashion (here)


I don't know what normal people do on their birthdays, but here I am on my 22nd, sitting under the duvet scoffing an entire box of Quality Street and blogging today's outfit.... But it's not a successful birthday without a great outfit, right? 
Chiara Fashion sent me this gorgeous dress a while ago now (which is now on sale for £8 and for that price, surprisingly great quality!) and today is finally a perfect reason to wear it. For the sake of Monday i've dressed it down with a scarf and some cute little boots for a more pub friendly look since tonight, me and all of my friends are heading to The Faraday (an eclectic little pub in Epsom, Surrey with the most amazing American-diner-esque menu where me and my friends mainly hang out) for their Retro Gaming night which is basically a nerd-paradise where you can play the Nintendo and Sega mega drive all accompanied by a beer! So, on that note, i'm off to go and be 22! Ciao!

#MyDorothyMoment













Boots - c/o Dorothy Perkins
Skirt - c/o Warehouse (here)
Jumper - c/o Oasap (here)
Bag - Topshop (here)



So, i'm officially a proud owner of a pair of over-the-knee boot, something i've been pining over since they 'came back' last A/W... The lovely chaps at Dorothy Perkins sent over these boots as part of their #MyDorothyMoment / #DPShoeSelfie campaign and competition, and since there's nothing I love more than shoes, I just couldn't say no! (i'm not gonna lie, my shoe rack could though, the weekly collapsing tells me it's done with life...) 
#MyDorothyMoment is actually quite an eventful one as it's my birthday weekend (hello, 22!) - and being perfectly versatile, these boots makes the cut for the entire 3-day-event involving seeing Mockingjay Part 1 (thanks to my wonderful friend Annabel!), Winter Wonderland, and many bottles of prosecco! 

#DPShoeSelfie competition

As part of the campaign, Dorothy Perkins are giving one lucky entrant the chance to win a years supply of shoes - and all you have to do is upload a 'From Where I Stand' style shoe selfie in your DP shoes and hashtag #MyDorothyMoment and #DPShoeSelfie

#LAStyleOff









Jacket - Primark
City shorts - c/o Lavish Alice (here)
Top - Topshop
Bag - & Other Stories

Last month, Lavish Alice started a #LAStyleOff blogger comp, where you were to compile a wish list, and their 5 faves would be sent a mystery item to style up for the next 'phase' of the competition. I was one of the lucky five, and the wonderful team sent me these gorgeous 'city' shorts, which now have a very firm spot in my A/W wardrobe. I love anything remotely tailored, so I happily accepted the challenge, and even added a splash of colour to my gradually-turned monochrome palette recently!

Shooting with Motel Rocks

So today's post is a little photo heavy, but for good reason! Last month I did a shoot with Motel Rocks shot by Lucy, who you probably already know as the fabulous Lulu Trixabelle
It was such a great day, and I was nothing but chuffed to be working with one of my favourite brands and getting to wear the amazing Gabby dress - which I have to one day invest in! *swoons* 
Anyway, we shot around Great Portland street (by where Motel are based) and just did a few street style-like snaps in some super cool pieces from this season, as well as stopping for a cheeky cuppa and nibbling some blueberry cake (which was delicious) - and here is the outcome! Hope you enjoy!

After Hours












Dress - c/o Boohoo (here)
Bag - Celine
Shoes - Heelberry (here)


Fluff. It's everywhere and my god it's hard to resist. And it's even harder to resist as a double serving - matching my shoes to my dress? How could I not? 
All of my wish lists this season are cram-packed with fur items, and my obsession extends to me even having left over fabric from my most recent piece for A/W15 for scarves and bags which you can see (and buy) in the next fortnight (have a guess what colour it is.... *cough* pink *cough*

The turtle neck phase










Dress - c/o AX Paris (here)
Hat - Boohoo (here)
Boots - Missguided
 Bag - H&M (here)
Coat - c/o Boohoo (here)

Yep. Winter is officially here and my annual knitwear obsession has begun, starting with this knitted turtle neck dress from AX Paris accompanied by the first appearance of tights this season! Brrrr! 
Knitted dresses are at the top of my shopping list for this season right now, i'm such a creature of comfort and nothing can possibly beat throw-on essentials, especially when you're a busy-bee. 
Speaking of being a busy-bee, this week has been exceptionally so. I finally bought (/spent every last penny) my final fabrics for the first garment of my FMP at uni (if you haven't already seen me babble on about it, i'm in my 3rd year of fashion design) and i'm so excited to see the results and maybe even share them here - maybe you'll get a cheeky peek once it's all back from production next month! Eeeek!
