Superga Silvers

:: DIY Distressed Tee - Primark ::

When you want to look cool in your leather overall's but then the English weather weirdly creeps up to 20 degrees and your legs start sticking to the inside of your trousers. Shit happens. This is the post I promised you all before I went all MIA with issues, tissues and a last minute trip to Barcelona ( check out my Instagram here for some snaps )  . Barcelona is the coolest city, seriously. Weird bars with Barbie's head stuck on the entrance, heels attached to the ceiling, seats made of our half pipes & so much street art that I was in my element. Jealous to all you lot living over there . We walked 31,0000 steps one day ( thankyou iPhone pedometer ) & I have never been more thankful for a comfortable shoe!

Speaking of hoof-wear, check out these metallic beasts! They just add a kick to any blah blah black outfit which I usually need.

The current kicks are metallic, because for too long have your eyes dazzled others when your feet could be doing the talking.
Outfit coming soon !

#AllInTheJeans Love My Knits


My 3rd & final way to wear these Esther jeans I went for a bit of posh. Like me but scrubbed up a bit, I look so clean it almost concerning. This would be for those of you who like to be a lady but also warm & snuggley. Feel free to swap the heels for fluffy slippers .
Also, if anyone knows how to do the 'hair tuck' without ending up with multiple dreadlocks please let me know, because any day now I am just going to let it all go and either end up with an undercut or an actually bush on my head. 

Thankyou to Miss Selfridge for having faith in my styling ability to bring you 3 Ways to Wear this cool as hell jeans. Which look was your favourite ?

#AllInTheJeans Denim on Denim


Carrying on from my previously styling post - I went all hospital scrub-chic in some double denim gettup. 
The dress is actually sized up by 3 sizes - I find playing with sizes to get the fit required so much more fulfilling. This way it skims the hips, and can add some much needed proportions. The fluffy bag was needed to stop it looking like I was about to perform some sort of surgical procedure but who gives a hoot when it is THE most comfortable outfit to ever encase your body.

#Allinthejeans The Shirt


The chicks at Miss Selfridge have just launched their #Allintheirjeans campaign this month , with a brand new range of jeans & a denim hub. They were kind enough to invite me along for a Personal Shopping sesh & to pick some pieces to style up one of fits 3 different ways. My personal shopper Lucy was an absolute babe & it was more like a catch up with an old friend than an uncomfortable, clinical shuffle around a shop. She got my brief, lots of black, slouchy, oversized with an irrational feel of overly exposed flesh, candy pastels & gingham.
I went for the Esther jean, a slim boyfriend with enough rips to keep me content. They are comfortable enough for work, can be dressed up or down and have that ' I don't give a hoot' feel to them.
This is my first styled look, easy going with a half tucked shirt. Belted and accessorised simply. Almost masculine . But then what are boyfriend jeans for ?

A few new favourites all in one go - and proof that Sale shopping really can pay off. This Monki dress was only 17.50 on ASOS and fits like a dream. The perfectly slouchy silhouette with a formal streak and a deep V neckline. Then come these caged heels - only 13.00 from New Look and when they look a hell of a lot more expensive you know you are onto a winner. 
Add some unkempt hair, a furry side kick and a men's Daniel Wellington and they may just be the cutest look - undone formality at its best.

Adidas Originals

The fine folk over in the Adidas Originals dept are dining daily on steak at the moment surely - what with the old logo's having a comeback. Back in the day I was all about Ellesse with a real kick of Adidas popper pants. My Mam wouldn't allow me to move into Kappa territory, and looking back, rightly so. 
However, after seeing a stampede of Stan Smith's where-ever I wander, I decided to kick off in some Puma's. Because now I can afford all those 90's sports names I so coveted when I was a penniless 15 year old. Pairing this combo with this delicate lace slip from Free People. It will be perfectly lightweight and all Bohemian for in the Summer months but for now it adds a little bit of delicate raunch to an outfit.
Yes,  'delicate raunch' is the new black.

Motel Rocks Stella


:: Motel Rocks Stella Shirt Dress - c/o Motel ::
:: Zip Biker Leather Trousers - Zara ::
:: Leopard Print Heels - Missguided ::
:: Daniel Wellington Sheffield Watch - c/o Daniel Wellington ::
:: Studded Leather Satchel - c/o Dr Martens ::

It has taken me a while to bust out these leathers due to the fact that they are low rise. And surely I cannot be alone in finding myself in cave man wonder at how one can get through the day without a waistband that sits neatly and comfortably under the bust. That is squatting out of the question without a rather unattractive 'hitch up' afterwards.

Hope you all had an awesome weekend - we made a duvet den in the bedroom & ate too much food whilst watching too much bad TV. Its what Valentines day is about - avoiding overly priced restaurants, not bounding yourself in bodycon & lying in crumbs.
