GIRLS NIGHT OUT WITH ETSY UK

A day of fashion, fun & brunching with my fave gals & Etsy UK...






With the party season upon us and NYE right around the corner, I thought I would share this oh so fabulous shoot I recently did with my Blogger BAE's Abs & Megs (oh how I love these two so very, very much) and Etsy UK.

I'm still so in love with the vintage 1960's dress and Versace suede jacket I chose for our 'Girls Night Out' themed shoot AND can you believe this, it just so happens that the NYE party I'm off to has a black & gold dress code - WELL IN! ...so needless to say I'll be sporting this sparkly ensemble to see in the New Year. 

Etsy UK have the most amazing party pieces and unique handmade accessories - it's definitely my go-to destination when I want something a bit unusual, that I know no one else will be wearing.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and i'll see you in 2016!

STATEMENT FAUX FUR

Take your outfit from 0 to 100 with a statement faux fur






It's that time of year when I bring my fur coats, scarves, stoles out of storage and get all snuggly with my outfit choices - the bigger... the fluffier... the cosier - the better! Fur, to me, is like the Winter equivalent of a statement necklace - guaranteed to take your outfit to a whole new level! With the added bonus of keeping you warm and toasty during the chillier months (which I'm ALL about). 

I've been lusting after a Charlotte Simone Fur Scarf for years now, but at the moment I just can't justify spending hundreds of pounds on an accessory that I'm only likely to wear for a few months of the year. So as soon as I spotted this Topshop dupe, I had to make it mine. As you know I'm a big lover of the colour Chartreuse, so this little fluffy number is an all-round-winner for me. 

The scarf is such an oversized, statement piece, that I decided to dress it down with a monochrome (#MimeChic) jersey tee, black Jamie Jeans and the Muse Bone Heel Boot - a revamp of the ever so popular Master Boots. Simple, yet sassy.

Oh and FYI, if you digging this whole ensemble, you can shop the entire look below - just click the 'Buy the Look' button, select your sizes, hit 'buy' and as if by magic you'll be taken through to the Topshop checkout - how rad is that!! ...I've never used the word 'rad' in my life but now seems like a pretty appropriate time to use it! #GameChanger 

LEOPARD AND LEATHER

Leopard on leopard, leather, tortoiseshell & a big ole fur collar - that's my ultimate Winter ensemble right there

The second I spotted this crinkle-textured top in Toppers the other day, I knew there was absolutely no way I was leaving the shop without it - the high-neck and flared sleeves are a bit of me!

I love playing around with different textures during the colder months - adding touchy-feely fabrics to your ootd and texture-clashing is a super easy way to make Winter fashion fun!





SKINNYDIPPING

Adding an extra bit of sass to my outfit with Skinnydip

I shot this look a few weeks ago, on a girls day out with my best babes Abs and Megs. We went for a laavly brunch at Bills (standard), had a good ole catch-up and then mooched around Hoxton Square - the perfect Sunday afternoon. 

Totally felt like Cher Horowitz in this suede-on-suede combo and Zara knee high boots. With an added bit of sass thanks to my new Skinnydip London Bee Clutch Bag.

The babes at Skinnydip have featured me as their 'Blogger of the Month' - check out my Q&A over on their blog!
