MY EBAY BASKET

Hellooo,

Few of my recent eBay purchases to share with you! I've noticed they're all pretty 90's themed! Definitely on the hunt for a job now as the leftover uni funds are running out fast. 

1. I've made one basically exactly the same as this and it's really simple, but if you're lazy you can buy this from eBay for only less than a fiver! Buy here

2. Cute summer staple and for £2.50 with free postage you can't go wrong! Comes in black, pink and white, buy here

3. I was on the hunt for the heeled clear juju's for ages and then found these on eBay. They're sold out everywhere so are definitely worth getting on eBay, came quickly too!

4. Cute Wildfox stars sweater dupe for only £8.99. Buy here

5. I love scrunchies at the moment - so 90's! These cute velvet ones are only a quid each and come in a variety of colours :)

6. This mesh netted crop is perfect for layering and adding a 90's twist to outfits. They're being sold in Topshop for over £20, but this one's only £7.99

Have you found any good eBay deals recently? I don't know about you but I love eBay bargain posts!

Romwe have an amazing sale starting soon so don't forget to check it out!

YELLOW GOTH

Heyyy,

For the last 2 weeks i've been having so many problems with my domain ownership, it needs to be renewed but google won't let me log in to the apps thing. GRR so annoying so may just have to change my blog name... I don't really know how many problems this will cause me it's just so annoying. I hope I don't just lose my whole blog when the domain expires? EEK. Does anyone know much about this?

I'm absolutely loving yellow at the moment - it's definitely my  favorite colour of the season. I saw this dress in Topshop Oxford Circus the other day and loved the simple shape and 90's style thin straps. I'm never really a girly girl so toughened it up with my Warehouse leather jacket (which I haven't taken off since I got it), handmade choker and the trusty Jeffrey Campbell Coltranes which I don't think I will ever ever ever get bored of.

I'm trying to plan a day/night outfit for Field Day this Saturday, are any of you going? Come say hiiiiii :D







Dress - Topshop £18 // Leather Jacket - c/o Warehouse // Belt - Topshop £12 // Boots - Jeffrey Campbell Coltranes £120ish // Frilly socks - eBay £2 // Choker - Handmade

Sorry about the paleness - i've kinda decided to ditch the tanned look and embrace my inner ghost.

POSTCARDS FROM SHOREDITCH!

Yoo,

I recently went on a shoot with Warehouse and took part in a project they're doing at the moment called 'Postcards in Shoreditch'. It involves them collaborating with different bloggers wearing Warehouse in quirky locations in the amazing and fashionable East of London.

I met up with Rhian from the Warehouse team the day before the shoot at the Oxford Circus Warehouse store and I got the pleasure of being able to pick any four items to make up an outfit to shoot and then keep. There were so many amazingly cute things now the summer has(not) arrived so I was spoilt for choice. Firstly I saw this beautiful collarless leather jacket with quilted panelling and knew I had to wear it! I then saw these high waisted acid wash skinny jeans and this leather top and thought I would go all biker chic and double up the leather. I especially love the leather top as it has a pretty chiffon detailed back giving a contrast between femininity and biker style! Lastly I added a bit of colour with this red studded slouchy bag, which I haven't actually stopped wearing since i've had it - it's such a handy size!





I would just like to say a massive thank you to everyone at Warehouse and especially Rhian for being so welcoming!

WISHLIST


1. I've had my 'eye' on this top from Tee and Cake for a while. (Get it? pa ha ha ha) I love all things dinosaur related and when I spotted this in the Oxford Circus Topshop the other day at £23 I knew I had to get it. The Tee and Cake section is absolutely amazing at the moment so it's definitely worth checking out the whole collection!

2. Again, Tee and Cake I LOVE this top, it has a really cute back aswell. As soon as I have a job all these goodies are mine :D This top is only £20, not too bad I didn't think.

3. This floral yellow dress is so cute, I love the casual cut and think it would look amazing with my coltranes and a leather jacket. It's only £18 too! You can buy here

4. I am absolutely lusting over the Buffalo version of these I saw in Oxford Circus the other day but I am definitely not willing to pay £100+ for them so when Lydia found these on ebay for under £30 I got a bit too excited. I still can't decide if I could pull them off though, I LOVE them, but i'm pretty tall at 5'9 without heels so i'm not sure if i'm too tall for them :(

5. OK so these Lanvin earrings are the one purchase that is way out of my budget at £495 and will be purchased 'if i win the lottery' but how beautiful are they? I love the tutti frutti colours.

6. I've been trying to hunt these babies down for ages and looked in every single shop but they have sold out for now, grrr. I will definitely own these soon! I already have the mint ones but love the clear chunky heel on these. Can be purchased from Topshop when in stock at £26!

What's your favorite item? Do you love Tee and Cake as much as me?

BAD MOON BELL BOTTOMS

Hellooo,

It's been quite an exciting week for me so far, I'm back in London now so have been really busy shopping and casually meandering around doing mah thanggg. I was shopping in Carnaby on Monday and i've always loved Monki but I went in the other day and literally fell in love with every product. I love their unusual cuts and fabrics, they need to open more stores! I'm sooo skint at the moment so only allowed myself to buy this cute yellow sweater and a cheeky earring! Other than shopping, I was on shoot with Warehouse on Monday/Tuesday which was really fun, i'll be doing a detailed post on that towards the end of the week showing you the end shots. 

I'm a massive fan of Thriftette and when they kindly sent me these bell bottoms I fell in love, I definitely think these could make it on the short list for festival outfits this summer! I can't wait to get on my craziest tassley ensembles and drink loads of cider yay! 

You know when you take loads of photos and hate your face in every single one, yeaaaaah. Blogger problems! Anyway I can't really dye my hair anymore otherwise i'll have none left so kinda hating on life right now, it's all rooty and dead and horrible, eughhh so disgusting.









Lace bell bottoms - c/o Thriftette //  Leather Jacket - c/o Warehouse  //  Bag - c/o Warehouse // Shoes - Jeffrey Campbell -£120ish via Karmaloop // Sweater - Monki £20 // Earring - Monki £6 // Tube skirt - H&M - £4

Do you guys love the lace bell bottoms as much as me? What will you be wearing to festivals this summer?

NEON AND NIKE

Heyy,

Summer is hereeeee, yay, sort of! It's a happy day for me, as of tomorrow I am free of full time education YAYUSSS. So good, no more dissertations, no more essays, no more exams. Woo. But now what to do? hmm...

I went on a little shopping trip yesterday (I may do a little haul post) and picked up this crop top from H&M. I'm addicted to buying crop tops at the moment as they are summery and great to throw on underneath dungarees, with mom jeans, or high waisted skirts. Especially love this one as it's neon! at £3.99 a bit of a barg :D  I've been looking for a cute rucksack for a while now and managed to pick this rucksack up for only £9 from Primark yesterday. I can never be bothered to carry handbags around in the summer when it's hot so this is perfect especially for festivals. 

I no longer have my picture taker Lexie anymore as we have been evicted from our flat *sobs* so i'm looking for a decent tripod, do any of you have any suggestions?








Skirt dungarees - Topshop £35ish / Crop top - H&M £3.99 / Belt - Topshop £6 / Nikes - £70ish / Chain - River Island - £12

90S STYLING

Hey guyssss

As part of a uni assignment I organised, photographed and styled a shoot. I've taken a couple of images from each look to show you guys an idea of what the final results look like.

The theme was all things 90's but I split into three sub categories. Firstly the look '90's space age'. Think Grimes (Claire Boucher), holographic prints and lots of plastic! The second look is named 'global mash up' and incorporates looks from other cultures but yet keeping to the 90's theme. A strong influence for this was a 90's Gwen Stefani! Thirdly 'sportwear'. Think Sporty Spice, crop tops and scrunchies!

I was really happy with the end shots and think the girls look so beautiful!










What do you think of the styling? Is there anything different you would of done?
