Instagram has become a much more viable way for me to snap outfits whilst on the move. Hence why this space has become so baron. Although posting shots taken for Insta here is often thought of as a cop-out, it is my space here so fuck it. 
Here are some details of late:


TOPMAN - Who Wore It Better ?

Myself & Andy were challenged by Topman to style up a pair of their jeans each in a mini-style off.

Ever since the days of Uni when skinny jeans hit with such ferocity , I became familiar with men shopping in the Topshop denim section to get the skinniest of the skinny fits. It became quite normal.
I, too , was no stranger to grabbing a vest from Topman ( hello drop arm-hole ) , or a piece of jewellery or two (the pieces always seemed more raw and rustic that the shiny Topshop pieces) - so why I have never thought of buying some jeans from there, I don't know.

Any-ho . I styled mine up all 70's tailoring. Think Alison Mosshart on her way to jury service. A longline blouse with cheeky deep V, a classic long neck scarf & the standard fur. Because now I have these bad boys, a bog-standard clutch bag seems just that. Bog-standard.

p.s my camera cannot deal with all black - which is ironic as its pretty much all I can deal with.

Andy channeled his best 'Sheffield boy moved to Manchester' vibe with a polo, check lined Fred Perry parka & some woven kicks. A privately educated Liam Gallagher to my Allison Mosshart.

So who styled their denims best ?

:: Rust Suede Dress - Primark ::

Hello rust! How have I overlooked you for so long? The blonde, the pale skin, it goes so well. I feel like an extra from Almost Famous. Fuck it, I feel like Penny Lane. And Primark, you little devil for producing something so cute - I can eat & eat and this dress will never punish me. My clutch is full of snacks.

White mesh with exposed seems a la Calvin Klein SS14 & an oversized leather slip may not seem like obvious Summerwear but... no, you would be right . It stuck to me in places I didn't think possible. But the clean lines are so pretty !

:: Faux Fur Clutch Bag - ASOS Sale £15::

I decided to pull my AW15 accessories shop forward. Which works out well - see the rain soaked leaves blown across the streets ? Yep, that's a British Summer for you . 
The bold red hat, snakeskin detailed boots & oversized faux fur clutch are all complimentary to one another & despite being bold pieces alone, are not overwhelming when worn with a timeless piece, such as this slip.
Regal Rose decided to upgrade my witch-like fingers & give me a good reason to parade them, with these stackable goodies. Add a new foundation , biker jacket & hint of real ( faux ) tan & this is pretty much Summer for me. Accessories not in Black, are the new black. Hell yeah. 


Solace Anna Jumpsuit

:: Basic White T-shirt - Primark ::
:: Arm Cuff - H&M ::

A hybrid between a martial arts uniform & office wear, but with much more leg room and some serious cleavage if worn alone - this bad boy is my latest obsession.
