The Comeback Post

23 Sep

Apologies all round are due as I haven’t blogged in a really long time. Technology is oh-so-fab when it works…

Anyway a major catch-up is needed! Whilst my laptop was in rehab I’ve missed London Fashion Week, a load of Miley Cyrus flavoured bullshit and the weird Kimye life-overs. BAD TIMES!  I’m back now, though, and ready to roll…

London Fashion Week Street Style [Via Cosmo]

Last Fashion Week I was all over it, loving the trends, the snaps, the blogs, the news…everything! The difference between then and now is the lack of interweb research and constant clicking on new links emerging as they were posted! SO I’ve skipped all the nitty gritty and gone straight to Cosmo for the Street Style LFW Guide. Let me tell you… I like what I see!

– Boyfriend Jeans: Forever searching for a Fashion Week-approved style that’s comfy and wage-friendly, I’m delighted to find boyfriend jeans back in the Autumn/Winter trends to keep!  I’ve found these three pairs for under £30! Which pair is your fave?

Zara Loose Fit Jeans £29.99 / Internacionale Midwash Jeans £22.49 / Punkyfish Ripped X-Boyfriend Jeans £25

– Perspex Bags: Ever filled your bag with such awesome crap that you wished everyone could see?! Well now you can coz it’s cool:

The Beckton Transparent Clutch by LYDC £22 / Large Klear Klutch £59.99 / Nasty Gal Eye Candy Satchel £31

clear clutches

– Cool Headphones: Who cares if general members of the public are staring at you with Hipster Envy?! You look awesome coz Cosmo told you so:

Beats Solo by Dr Dre £169.95/ ASOS Metallic Gold Headphones £18 / GOJI Tinchy Stryder Over-Ear Headphones £49.99

Headphones

I forgot how much blogging makes me lust after stuff I didn’t think I even needed, let alone want. It’s good to be back. Tomorrow I discuss Miley Cyrus…if you’re a fan you may not want to hear what I have to say!

Monochic

grammy

Just look at that front row. The Grammy’s was of course full to the brim with red hot sexy talent but this mono-four take things to a level of their own. Monochrome is everything right now:

It’s not just mono-attire that the fashion world is feelin’ right now; check out these beauty and accessories to match:

If I were to rock this mono-trend on a night out, whether it be for a date, dinner or partying I’d wear my favourite dress straight from my Mum’s closet! I have no idea where she got it or what for but it’s perfect! It’s almost -100 degrees outside in Britain this week with that Siberian breeze so I’ve teamed it with black ASOS Leggings and a saucy pair of stilettos I bought in a boutique in San Diego! Of course, I loved Khloé’s nails so much I got mine done the same! How would you style Monochromatic Sexiness???

Countryfile: Cooking, Kardashians & Creepy Villages

23 Nov

Having just returned from what seemed like the Village of Death, today I’m obsessing over what just happened!

Having rented a cottage for the week, Dan and I did our first ever weekly grocery shop (for those who don’t know, we still live with my Mum, who has a household system for things such as cooking and laundry…but she’s the only one involved in said system) and felt proud to only spend £8 (using a month’s worth of Tesco Clubcard coupons)!

My vision for this week: road trip, cosiness, cuddles, walkies (we took Princess along for the ride) and cooking.

Reality: We arrived in the dark, in the village of Thorndon (probably the world’s darkest village), in the rain and without a human welcoming.

The reality of our arrival sent the ladies on the trip into somewhat of a sulk; can you spot the unhappy Bichon Frise?

Obviously I didn’t take a photo of my own sulkiness because a) it wasn’t pretty and b) I was busy planning how to get the best out of this weird sitch.

I didn’t come up with much, which actually worked out for the best. Holidays with me usually include a basic plan of what I want to do (in my head it is a precisely timed schedule) but I decided to take a chill pill on this trip. Sort of…

The fact that the cottage we rented was in the front yard of the owner’s farmhouse wouldn’t have bothered me as much if they actually introduced themselves at some point during our stay. Not only did we not get a ‘hello’, we didn’t even get as much as a wave as they glared at us as they walked back and forth from work/school/dog walks, etc.

Sulk number 2 was averted with a tactical closing of the curtains. Out of sight, out of mind. Wonderful…

I learnt LOTS about myself this week, also…

1) I can cook and will (occasionally) cook! Not exactly the healthiest of meals but I managed sausages and steamed veggies (including boiled potatoes, thank you very much!), a killer Tikka Massala curry and a delish tuna and chicken pasta bake! Although entry level recipes, I’m still exceptionally proud of myself as I even managed to wash up afterwards.

2) I need pyjamas. Currently, my pyjama arrangements consist of mismatched velour tracksuits from Zax about 5 years ago, odd Primarni sets which are not warm or comfortable; or old underwear. All of which are not suitable for situations in which you are staying in someone else’s property.

I hear you asking why I suddenly care about a section of one’s wardrobe that makes up about 1% of one’s overall wardrobe space…

Enter Kourtney Kardashian:

She’s known for her cute, on-screen pyjama style and I want a piece of this matching, silky, cosy heaven. I have my heart set on 3 pyjama sets so far:

This adorbs doggy set from River Island (rather apt, too, I thought), £30:

Def pulling a Kourtney with these and opting for a huge pattern. I can’t think of anything better than multiple pink elephants! Also, for £19 at Very they are pretty much as beautiful as bargains come!

Luxury pyjamas seem to me a little bit pointless…unless they look like this. These Wildfox PJs are from ASOS and will cost £100… buuuttttt… they make you look and feel super trendy. WIN! Where’s my credit card??

Moving on…

3) I learnt that country villages are possibly some of the creepiest places to live in the world. Our humble abode was situated in the quaint little village of Thorndon, in the rolling countryside of Suffolk. Nearest towns are Eye and Debenham, both of which boast a nice church and a co-op. Not much else around unless you trek over 20 miles to Ipswich or Norwich.

No street lighting after dark (which means after about half past 3 in the afternoon at this time of the year) meant that taking the dog for her after dinner poop was unimaginably chilling and the fact that there are no pavements adds a touch of danger to the proceedings. Not that we needed to go far, nothing to do and nothing to see.

4) Lastly, I learnt that Helen Flanagan annoys the living crap out of me, Hugo Taylor is a legend and Ashley Roberts is not only delicious sans make-up, she should also WIN this year’s I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!

Quick-fire reasons for the above statement:

“I LOVE SNAKES! Oh, it’s coming towards me… oh…OH! I’M A CELEBRITY GET ME OUT OF HERE NOW!!” – Fake-ass Helen failing yet another trial.

“I’d like to produce films, get into television… and I’d actually like to own my own Formula 1 team *cheeky smug side smile*” – Hugo after taking career advice from Rosemary Shrager, of all people!

“We can work on that!” – Ashley after teaching Rosemary Shrager the Pussycat Dolls’ ‘Don’t Cha’ dance, forever creating one of the funniest moments of this year’s series so far

“Who used my CLEAN towel? Where’d my clean towel go??” – Ashley outing Helen as the selfish thief she really is…

Right after she earned 8 meals for camp in her bushtucker trial! Also, Ashley is extremely FIT 🙂

Soooo, in conclusion, this week I’ve learnt some stuff. Not exactly huge life lessons but I suppose learning to cook counts as a big one. Also, one does need pyjamas.

That was my week!

Until next time… PEACE!

Steal Khloe’s X Factor Style

1 Nov

After confirming Mario Lopez and Khloé Kardashian as the new hosts of the US version of the X Factor, the world’s media went crazy for all things KoKo!

‘Khloé Kardashian – Hot Or Not?’

‘Kardashian Facing Backlash For Hosting TALENT Competition’

‘Khloé vs Britney – The New X Factor Style Showdown!’

& so the headlines went on…

But HOORAY… Khloé’s X Factor debut has finally aired and the jury is no longer out on this one! Using her usual quick wit and cute, flirtatious charm, she was a much-needed ratings-boosting SMASH!

Aside from pushing the judges and oozing self-confidence, Khloé also won brownie points in the style stakes; power dressing in a tight-fitting pencil skirt and sheer, detailed blouse, tough-cookie KoKo even brushed off Simon’s playful air-conditioning joke as her left nipple popped through to make it’s own TV debut! Later in the evening Khloé tweeted, “I think I had a little nip action earlier LOL”

Khloe’s outfit had quite the impact on her first day so I thought I needed a similar get-up in my wardrobe, just in case I’m in need of a ‘This-Is-My-Time-To-Shine-Outfit’! Perusing what’s on offer at the moment, here’s my UK high-street version of KoKo’s X Factor ensemble:

This Lace Back Blouse in Plum Crush – Lipsy – £38

Teamed with this bargain of a skirt from Krisp – £20

Completing the look with some Kardashian-Style Shoe Porn like these heeled bad-boys from River Island (currently on sale at Asos.com) – £35

Bag this little outfit and dress to impress just like Khloé!

The Most Stylish Wedding Gown Ever?

17 Sep

Even though I had to google her name to find out who she is and what she actually does, Mary Charteris is stealing fashion headlines all over the world this week as she marries in what most are calling the most stylish wedding gown ever.

Created by Pam Hogg the gown was worn in front of equally-as-eccentric guests such as Lilly Allen, Florence Welch and Jaime Winstone as Lady Charteris wed rocker Robbie Furze.

Since I wasn’t invited to London Fashion Week (*cries*) and I am a telephonist earning not a lot (*cries more*) I have decided to see how close to this dare-to-bare trend I can get by shopping on the high street.

It turns out there is an option for all personalities, shapes and ages:

Real extroverts, go-getters and all-round non-carers can opt for this saucy Made By Niki bodice (£113 from Asos):

Back to reality and for the more normal of the population, American Apparel do this gorgeous little bodysuit for £40:

Crazy Camden-based shop Cyberdog are known for their outrageous attention-grabbing club clothes so I thought they’d have something appropriate! This ‘Melt Dress’ is £65

Cyberdog also do these awesome suspender socks (£35) which can be your Pam Hogg-inspired statement piece if you’re not wanting to go down the nude route:

Ann Summers’ Clubwear clothing collection have a few inspired little numbers.

This sheer body is £30 and is the average person’s version of Lady Charteris’ wedding bodice:

& this dress (£40, finished to perfection with gloves and stockings) is not only daring but also brings the futuristic edge back into the trend:

Last but not least we have a sheer shirt which you can wear with or without a bra (depending on how dedicated to ol’ Pammy you are)!! This one is £18 from Pop Couture:

Excuse me now, I have some shopping to do! What is your favourite piece?
