It's Neck Season

I guess the title gives it away. Autumn is now in full swing and the keeping warm trends are thriving. This season, it's about dressing up your neck, from heavy knitted turtle necks, to even knotted chokers. Being a big fan of high necks and choker jewellery I was way ahead into purchasing a blouse to fit in perfectly with my autumn wardrobe. With low cut front and attachable ribbon to drape around your neck, this is the perfect top to layer with a heavy coat and some warm, hot heavy boots.

Aim of this season is to bring the 70's S/S trend further into the winter warm wardrobe, and owning either a jumper or blouse, box shape and heavy with full design and detailing around your neck, you are well on your way.

Whole outfit is available now instore at Topshop online & instore.

The fur you need this season

This is by far my most favourite winter season in a while. MOVE ASIDE GLITTER FOR CHRISTMAS, it's now more fur the better. From you long length 1940 luxury styles, to the innovative colour blocking colour, there is now a fur coat to cater any style.

My current wishlist is every style of fur to fit with every outfit. From Topshop to Whistles, this is where you need to be looking for your extra layer this winter.

Fur-Real AW15 Edit




Way to wear these? Simple. The 70's trend stormed the high street and catwalk this year over the spring and summer months. Pair the fur with some flares, or just a more casual look of skinny jeans and a tee.

Let's hope this trend takes us right til spring, until then, I'm off to buy my wishlist.

So I finally got it. After a few weeks, of 'out-of-stock' haunting my every visit to ASOS, I finally got the beloved coat. With the street style trend of clashing textures, colours, and heavy fur it was a must-have purchase!
 If you're lucky enough to find your size you can purchase it here!

I styled the coat to work with the digital-70's girl look. With Ragged Priest storming the high street (especially with the Lazy Oaf collab), I brought this cute tee from the new store URSA MINOR APPAREL in Hockley, Nottingham. Finished with the S/S 15 Topshop knitted flares, Ironically warm for the cold season ahead.

Oakland 20/10/15

Autumn is around the corner, so the jumpers, neutral toned florals and my dr martens are creeping back into my wardrobe. Topshop this season has blown be away with their Winter Garden AW15 trend. With the warm tones, and earthly colours, this has to be your one stop this season. 

Recently, I've been breaking into my monochrome/greyscale obsession, lifting my outfits with toned down colours. This floral skirt is the perfect wind-down to simple pair of boots, leather jacket and a plain black/white/grey top. With the discrete pattern, it's not too overwhelming to layer up an add to motif tee's and even detailed textures.

Jumper / Topshop / £26 - grab it here!
Boots / Dr Martens / £140

Ragged Priest & Lazy Oaf - A Dream Come True

So it's finally happened. Two of my favourite niche brands have come together to create the ultimate collection which came out last week!

Think 'Total Mess', crazy pop art graphics and badges, SH*T HAPPENS and a bit of weird and wonderful. The collection is for those 'no fashion boundaries' lovers, who also lie to get nostalgic and look lke they stepped out a wacky cartoon.

The whole collection is the exciting take on street style fashion, where at this day and age you are more likely to get noticed with you have a bright pink pom pom on your head and an outfit that channels the rainbow.

My favourite pieces? I can't decide. However, with my wardrobe getting a bit of a sort out for the new season, to liven up my winter gloom, the collection's jeans ARE A MUST.

cat knees anyone?

It's the clothing with attiude, sprinkled with vibrant colours and the ultimate Tumblr Hipster vibe. 
Additionally, the collection includes gems of 'badass' jackets and holographic fabrics (of course!).

Both brands have heavy influences of rebellion and looking different, while also channelling there inner Jeremy Scott and Henry Holland mixed the social media meme sub-culture. Other motifs to the collection include sequined unicorns and pizzas, mixed with fabrics of Fur, Mesh, Leather and a hell lot of glitter.

So if you are feeling a bit quirky this autumn season, like me, take a peek at the collection here, available to by now while stocks last!

Flares for Days

Summer is at it's closing month (sad), and it's gone too quick! However, this also means the AW15 trends are creeping in. I am just as excited, for the Fall timewarp of 1970 fashion. Flares, turtle necks, and heavy boots. The MUST NEEDS to look extra groovy for these last months of the year.

Before the whole of summer ends, I grabbed myself a pair of legging flares, available at TOPSHOP for £28. With the stripe vertical pattern, gives myself the illsioin of extra long legs, which for any 5 ft 7's out there, it's perfect. I finished the outfit the Topshop Jersey shoulder layered tee, black heel boots and the beloved fluffy clutch from the winter season, soon coming back to stores.

TOPSHOP: Sunglasses £16 / Lipstick BOARDROOM £8 / Glow Highlighter £12

Never thought I'd see the day when I would be wanting more pairs of flares. Can we work with any plain jersey, this is an essential for the months ahead.
