Wings Will Always be my Weakness

Today's been a lazy day doing my favourite things and spending lots of time by myself. The best thing about my outfit today are my new shoes! They are Topshop Unique and picked them up in the Sale for £40 (originally £110! ...I know, bargain!) I love a metallic heel at the moment and wings will always be my weakness. The dress is brand new too from River Island - it comes in tons of colours is is only £30 which isn't bad for the amount of material you get. I added the body chain to give it some shape and reduce the potential tent situation - the back is really nice too - it kind of sits like a halter. Also have the latest Primark bag which every 2nd person in London is also sporting. It's just £12 I couldn't resist the studs....

 Today I'm Wearing: 
Cardigan - Mango
Body chain - Urban Outfitters
Studded Bag - Primark

Shoes - Topshop Unique
Spike bracelet - Dorothy Perkins
Watch - Casio

Having a Ball

Today I'm wearing: mint embellished  prom dress from Warehouse and and Topshop flatform plimsolls and wet look leggings.

 I did have a leather jacket to grunge up this look for today but its boiling and its taken me by surprise. The dress was in the sale a few years ago from Warehouse which I planned on wearing to the Summer Ball at uni in final year -  but never ended up going. I can't remember ever going to a single Summer Ball! Luckily I was too lazy to sell this on eBay, and the fact that I'm a concrete hoarder has allowed me to fall in love with this dress all over again. It's a bitch to wash but Fashion Over Function hey!

It's been just over a year since I began this blog! What an amazing year =D Everything has changed and although I'm not 100% where I want to be yet, I'm battling through.....

This time 5 years ago I was gearing myself up to move abroad to France;
This time 3 years ago, I was a graduate in biology and heading for Fashion.
This time last year I was leaving a great job in a fashion buying office to chase my styling dream...

And the last 12 months have been amazing from being the runner up in the styling competition with to right up until last month where my styling can be seen on the Italian Vogue website! I'm still working three jobs, 7 days a week and feeling like a fashion nobody and often it feels deflating and stagnant. But I still get whispers of hope that one day I can earn a living doing what I love most.
Well, 366 days given the leap year :/. My bad.

I've made another video! They're not getting any easier but this one is shorter and marginally less painful. Hopefully you'll find it interesting....

For the Love of Red

Oh dear, I have shopped a lot lately... it's kind of embarrassing. However I have had my eye on this dress for ages now and last week it went in the sale online at ASOS and I just had to get it. It's so floaty and easy and bright! One problem is that it creases like crazy. Yesterday afternoon I had lunch on Marylebone High street and when I stood up there were creases all my crotch and midriff! Not a great look - but who cares its red! The dress costs just £16.50 and it also comes in green... :)
 Today I'm wearing: ASOS shirt dress, Portobello Market bag, and Irregular Choice Shoes
