Happy Fabulous Christmas

So the big day is almost here. With only 3 sleeps until Christmas 2013, I would like to take some time to wish all those who have read my blog and supported me along this crazy but exciting fashion journey, a very fabulous Christmas!!!

How am I spending it? With the family,eating wayyyy to much turkey, chocolate, mince pies, drinking mulled wine and the rest and dancing  around the Christmas tree. I am also having to work in between Christmas which is a shame BUT hey ho, it could be much worse.... somehow....

I am thinking of doing a sort of mini review of 2013 as this year has been one heck of a year, full of many ups but also downs but let's see.

Have a good week xx

All black everything...

Ummm, so after weeks of trying to block out that it is Christmas very soon, I am now grabbing it by the horns and embracing it. Now don't get me wrong, I love Christmas but the last few months (as other freelancers probably can relate) has been manic. As a result my blog (my fashion baby), has been a little neglected, but I am now back and ready to get my blogging on!!

So look out for more regularly blogging this week.

I wore this black ensemble on Saturday night out- cocktails and nibbles anyone?
I rarely wear black from head to toe, but recently I have been having a huge love affair with everything black!!

I snapped up this maxi, mesh panel number months ago, when H&M were having one of their 25% off (in collaboration with Grazia), so I only paid a very a debit card friendly price of £9.99 (bargain baby).

As Tis' is the season to partyyyyy, I am pretty sure this black beauty will have a few more outings.

Thoughts on the outfit?

Mafia style

Last month I assisted a very FAB stylist, on a Mafia themed fashion shoot for Style Noir magazine.

This was my first menswear shoot and I loved every second of it!  Here are one of the snaps from the shoot (courtesy of style noir magazine)

The magazine is on sale now :)

In the press: Best of Black British Bloggers

So, a few weeks ago, this happened:

Reporter from The Voice newspaper (on the phone): "Your blog has been selected as one of the Best Black British blogs"

This is a HUGE honour!!  I grew up reading The Voice and I also list my blog as one of my proudest achievements, so to be recognised is a great feeling!!

Horrifyingly Fabulous

Mwaa hahahhaaa!! So, Halloween is right round the corner and I have been invited to a Halloween party. I think I might play it safe and opt for a dress rather than an actual costume. Now don't get it twisted, I am a sucker for fancy dress but I don't think I will have the time this year (well, that's my story!)

Anyway, I am in two minds and I still have time, but for now I am having a serious SWOON fest over this dress from Misguided's 'Creep It Real' range.

and these shoes

umm .. or these 

Which I would wear with (one) of my fave MAC lipsticks.


Thoughts on the dress?

Keeping it cut out

So, last night I went for ribs, cocktails and the rest with a group of friends. We kept it local and headed to Wimbledon. As I write this post, I am still feeling super full as boy were those ribs hugeeeee!! 

As it is definitely time to dig out (or buy) lots of knitwear, I wore a checked printed jumper and teamed it with my latest crush- cut out, wet look leggings.

These leggings are from a brand called An Outfit. I snapped these up last week (blog post will be up about this event soon). With the weather the way it is at the moment, it really is all about layering. So I also wore my leather jacket and a faux fur gilet.

                                      (Excuse the scary look of my eyes in this pic) lol!
                                Jumper- Primark,  Faux fur jacket- Sugar and style 
                                  Leather jacket, Warehouse, Leggings- An Outfit, Boots, Zara, Bag, Zara


Are you a fan of my leggings?

On another note, I have my eye on a few winter coats, jumper and lots of other I-need-now pieces!

I need to write a list.

Have you started your A/W shopping yet?

Lovers In The Parking Lot

Leggings with printed smiley and sad faces, THOSE pink, shiny shorts, along with lots of other oh-so cool and colourful outfits, worn whilst busting out some serious moves in an empty store.  Solange can make just about anything look pretty fab!! If you haven't already seen it, check out the latest video from my biggest style- crush here

The track  "Lovers in the Parking Lot"  is taken from her EP (aka one of the songs that I  listen to constantly).

What do you think?

I can not get enough of this track, video and this chick!

Isabel Marant for H&M

Like all of the girls at work, I FIRMLY have November 14th marked in my diaries... (i phone, work and my Monet hardback diary) Why? the Isabel Marant for H&M collection finally lands in stores.... *scream*.

Like many I have lusted over Isabel Marant from afar (Hello, SS14 collection, shown at Paris fashion week), but my credit cards won't stretch that far.This is why this collab is so exciting as the prices are defo credit card debit card friendly!

Isabel Marant, SS14, ready to wear 

My Isabel Marant for H&M wish list (consists of a gorgeous embellished trophy jacket, leather ' I MUST have' cropped trousers and a sexy pair of sequined (?) shoes. If previous collabs are anything to go by-I predict a major fashion riot!!!!

Will you be queueing up for this collab?

Which items are on your list?

Let the shoes do the talking

Clicking my way through the Topshop website on my lunch break, I came across these BEAUTIES!!! Topshop are killing it at the moment.... well as always, right?

I am having serious new shoes cravings.....

Thoughts on  my selection is my much appreciated :) xx

Oh, keep yours eyes on the blog this week, I have lots of stuff to write about and this week I can FINALLY actually write/post the posts as I have a 'quiet' week. The last few weeks have been cray, cray!

Happy Monday!

Hello New Season

Even though I do not want to admit it, Autumn will soon be with us; I can actually smell it. I already have my
eye on a few A/W delights! Topshop have LOTS of  new season fabbo- ness that I am seriously crushing on. Unlike previous years, A/W13 is  a colouful one (Yellows and Pinks), I will be posting a sort of A/W13 guide on here next week, but for now below are a few of  my fave new season items from Toppers.
