Pardon the Hype

Or don't. In fact hyping on would be amazing, please! I picked up this oversized sequinned tee from a shop called Republic for a tenner.... I don't normally shop there as I only know the branch up north but there's always a bargainous treasure tucked away and I even spotted my beloved Vila military jacket for £25! I bought mine from for £60.... My pink bow hasn't really left my head for about 3 weeks and it doesn't look to be going anywhere - I've got a feeling my spring wardrobe is going to be dominated by  all things fluorescent this year. Sorry for the manky face today - that's  the mix of me trying 'to connect with the camera' and being hideously exhausted. But busy is always good, even at the expense of my face!

Today I'm Wearing:
Lumo bow - Forever21
Necklace - H&M
White Shirt - H&M
Hype tee - Republic
boots - Jeffrey Campbell

Till Hell Freezes Over

I've just booked my holiday for hot North Africa for later on this year and decided I was ready for sunshine and summer dresses. Then I woke up to this... :( Bent on wearing heels and summery clothes anyway I've layered up and added my wool hat. I will not let the weather beat me today! 
Today I'm wearing:
Pink Bow - Forever21 (saftey pinned onto my hat)
Dress - Urban Outfitters
Shirt - H&M
Boots - Jeffrey Campbells

DIY Veil Beanie

Ever I since I saw Bryan Boy wear the veil beanie on ANTM I have been obsessed! It's a mega celeb/blogger favourite and being a mental band wagon jumper albeit rather tardy - here's how I updated my bobble hat. 

All you need to do is cut about 50-70cm of veiling (depending on how big your head is...) and sew into place. This is literally the simplest 10 second bit of customizing I've ever done and it's completely updated my hat. I got the veil netting from eBay - here's the link.
P.S. Those are not my real eyes.

Google+ Hangout with Glamour and

If you didn't already know Glamour Magazine created an exclusive collection for! The collection has a timeless appeal with a bit of Glamour's signature pink thrown in there in the form of a cute tutu (my favourite!) . It adds a bit of fun to the range and I literally can't wait to see what's to come next out of the collaboration. They've magically managed to include all the wardrobe staples and made it accessible and attractive to many different women. So if you haven't done so already, check out the collection - Jo Elvin herself gives a video for each item in the collection!

For the launch of the collection I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Google+ Hangout with Glamour, and some really influential fashion bloggers! YES I was star-stricken. Being in a virtual room with Frassy, StyleSuzi, Fashionista Barbie and the Fashion Team at Glamour including Jo Elvin, the editor was a dream. The bloggers got a chance to exclusively interview the Glamour team which included Jo Elvin, Charlotte Anne Fidler (creative and fashion director) and Emer Dewar (Editor and Large) and we chatted about the vision of the collection, the inspiration and we explored how this wonderful collaboration arose. 

Here's the YouTube vid of the Hangout!

I've also been sporting my new Glamour collection pieces a lot since they joined my wardrobe and will be doing a post about the different ways to wear the tutu!

Today I'm Wearing the Tutu!
