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

– 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

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

13 Mar

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???

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?
