Warm Christmas

Another quick outfit post, as i've been wrapping up very warm (although it's actually been a mild christmas), i'm always cold!
This fur collar I love, it's so warm (not real fur) and you can attach it to any coat, Lovely. Can't beat a plaid flannel shirt around christmas, remind me of skiing. Anyway, I do hope you all have a lovely christmas and a happy new year, looking forward to seeing everyone's christmas outfits!

Magazine Research! Please Help!

Hello everyone!

For my final major project I am creating a contributors magazine for young creatives. Exciting stuff :)

I'll have a blog up and running for it soon, would be great to have your support,
Thanks in advance!

Animal Elements

Hi from my new uni room.
I haven't done an outfit post in a while, so heres a quick one for now, what I wore to uni on thursday.
Animal Elements have been a big part of my winter wardrobe this year. Leather jacket I wear almost everyday, and my new snake skin dress and fur collar add to my 'animal collection' of clothing. Hope you like!

I just had to share with you my BEST BUY this season. My high-waisted levi studded shorts. As they're an ebay buy, I wasn't sure what I was going to get through the post! But they're perfect. The studs feature on the right side and both back pockets. Heres the link for those of you that are interested, they have them in loads of different washes and colours, and they're a great investment piece as you can wear them whatever the weather.

High Shine


I made a promise to post some of my new buys today. So here we are! These photographs are just a couple of my recent buys. All quite shiny and soft fabrics for those of you with girly tastes, however, all versatile pieces that I LOVE mixing into the androgynous trend. All found in shops I don't usually venture into either which was a pleasant surprise also. I hope you like them, plenty more to come!

(apologies for the bad quality photos, the lighting in my uni room is absolutely awful)

Sleeveless dip hem shirt, with pearl studded collar, £35, Republic.

High shine metallic scallop tee, £25, River Island.

This is my new favourite nail varnish and a definite part of my A/W wardrobe. It's H&M own brand polish, and for £2.99 it's great quality! They do a range of colours, however this metallic black fits in perfectly with my on the go life at the moment (doesn't chip!).

Tough Cookie


Long time no post! As in my previous post, i've been manic with uni work!
I finally managed to buy a card reader, so tomorrow I will get snappy and take pictures of all the lovely things i've brought over the past couple of months. (I've had my student loan so I went a bit mad!) So new posts very soon :)
Today, however, I managed to man up and finally get my nose pierced after debating for months now. Im a wimp. I don't like needles. So I made it a big deal. And it didn't hurt that much! Ha. Apologies for the awful picture quality, and awkward pose. It's going to take getting used to! What do you think?

Back from Portobello

Long time no post I know... I can't explain how manic my life is right now. My final year at uni second week back and i've already got three projects due in in two weeks. I knew my degree year was going to be hard but this is unreal! I'm not complaining though I do love being busy.

Along with my dissertation i've got to do a project on an area of london (to put it simply) and I chose Portobello Road. It's beautiful. Full of vintage and antiques I could spend all day admiring all the treasures. If you've never been just GO.
I've got some new purchases recently as well, although i'm broke (look at my bank statements, It's official!) So I will post these when I get a spare milli second and a new card reader... In the mean time I hope you like some of my images of Portobello for my project. If anyone knows anything interesting to go and see around there - please let me know :)

Much Love H xox

She's a killer.

Shirt, Skirt and Necklace all H&M.

The outfit I wore tuesday night. So in love with my new skirt. I'd definitely wear it during the day with tights and loafers or chelsea boots, with an oversized jumper tucked in. I think the statement necklace and the open back brings a femininity to buttoned up shirt, which you'll probably see in many posts this fall/winter season! Now just to decide what to wear to the pub tonight... Have a nice evening all!

Monochrome Jewels

Shirt and Jeans, Topshop. Shoes, Carvela. Bag, Marc B.

As I shared my exciting saturday night antics with you, I thought I might aswell post what I wore, as i'd spoken about it. In the previous post I was originally going to wear a gold necklace and my leopard loafers. However I swapped the loafers for my Carvela's, as i'm only short I need every extra inch I can get, and they're not too over the top. I went with my jewelled bib necklace, and coral lips to add a bit of colour. My leather jacket and snake skin bag finished off the outfit.
It was an eventful night, and yes we all got very merry!

More for A/W

I know this isn't my first A/W wardrobe wish list post, but honestly, it's never ending. I'm thinking versatile items to make up my winter wardrobe, mixing autumn fabrics, leather and wool, with metallic pieces. Baggy jumpers layered with contrasting hugging trousers in wine colours will be my everyday staple, (think 'throw on'). Finished off with that statement collar necklace, which I am obsessed with at the moment. And of course, it wouldn't be A/W 2011 outfit without the classic chelsea boot.
Student loan... where are you?

Cracked Tiles

Cracked Tiles - Saturday Night Outfit.

I often create outfits on polyvore with items that I own so I can go back to them when i'm lacking in outfit inspiration.. This one I created will probably be my outfit for tonight. I'm going to a variety music night with the family... Yes I know, it sounds VERY exciting... (I hope you sensed the sarcasm) The problem is it'll be full of pensioners and the dress code is casual. CASUAL. For a saturday night? Doesn't matter anywho as ill be getting sloshed. I'll swap the heels for a leopard loafers and hope my statement chain doesn't give one of the older birds a heart attack.
Wish me a fun evening!

Dress and necklace, Topshop. Shoes, Office.

See, I have so many 'day time' clothes it's ridiculous. My staple evening outfit is a dress and killer heels, but im starting to find inspiration from other blogs and asos fashion finder on how I can incorporate my casual clothes into an evening outfit. But for now i'm loving my orange skater topshop dress, which is a huge colour jump from the blacks and neutrals of my wardrobe. And as in the last couple of posts, my chunky gold necklace. It really is my staple piece at the moment. Further evening outfit posts to come...

Dressing in the dark.

My attempt at something different... This was my outfit from monday (I think) when I went to work in the office. The reason i've posted it today is because ill probably be wearing something similar today. Swapping my Parka for my tailored black blazer for a smarter look.
Tonight I might be going out for drinks for a friends birthday - god knows what ill wear. Evening outfit posts probably coming soon. I need some night time inspiration!

Double Take

Behind the awkward pose, classy label showing and nostral making an appearance is my outfit for the day. Simple stripe dress, of which I cannot remember the last time I wore it, but it was an easy thrown on for a day infront of the laptop. Tumblr, blog and asos fashion finder updates make up my day along with endless cups of tea and pesto pasta for lunch.
Not one of my most exciting posts...

Over Board

It's now autumn but i'm making the most of the sunshine today.
I really want to get my nose pierced but i'm not sure if it'll suit me... I don't want to look like a chav and I have the pain threshold of a two year old child, but I think they look so pretty. I'm so bad at making decisions...
Off to work!

This is what boredom does...

Happy Monday! This is what boredom does... I was supposed to start my summer project for uni but i'm procrastinating (as the above image shows). I need to find some motivation and drive from somewhere. But for now I think ill just watch housewives of new york and look at endless pictures of stylish people on tumblr and style.com. Walk to dog and look oh so glamorous with my coral lipstick picking up dog shit.
Cup of tea first.

Coral Studs

I've always been a huge fan of the coral lips that grace the runways almost every season. (Although they're usually featured on big pouts, rather than skinny lips as the likes of mine) But still I wear it. I have many, but this one is my favourite - Barry M 147. Yum. Today I wear a cotton and mesh batwing top, with shoulder detailing. Off to get my favourite pair of platforms re-heeled. Cafe De Paris tonight.

Black, Gold and Leopard Print.

So I got my leopard print 'Madisons' from topshop. And they're even more amazing in real life. They're really going to pull my winter wardrobe together. I also brought two plain tops from zara. One black silk and cotton with gold zip detailing, and one beige cotton t-shirt which are perfect 'throw ons' for those colder days.
The ring is a belated 21st birthday present from both grandparents and my parents. I saw it in a vintage jewellers in our local town, I fell in love with it instantly. It's 18 carat gold and an oval cut sapphire that appears to be black. I'm so happy with it, I really wanted something simple and not from a generic highstreet store. This bad boy is never leaving my finger!

Perfect Camera Bag

I'm in love. I found this camera bag on one of the blog's that I follow '5 inch and up'. I'ts perfect in everyway, from the sleek metal chain to the beatiful neutral colour that would match my wardrobe and everything in it. I need this beauty in my life. Probably don't have the budget for it though!

Sunset Kicks

This is when I become a geek with my camera. I'm obsessed with taking photos of the sunset. it drives my boyfriend crazy. He's like 'it's just another sunset, they're all the same' But thats why I love them. Because they're not all the same. Rant over. I just love sunsets.

Take Me Out.

Another look from the confides of my bedroom. I'm loving denim shirts at the moment. I've never been a massive fan of double denim, especially on 50 year old european men, but the black jeans ground this look I think... I added a chiffon bow to the neck to give this androgynous style outfit a soft accent along with the bright pink lipstick. I'd definitely wear this outfit out, and put on my black loafers and leather jacket for the day. All it needs to complete it is a pair of raybans. Next investment?

Wish List

 Current Wish list. 
I'm loving these wine red jeans from topshop - I have then in black and they are the most comfortable things ever! (and im not a jeans fan at all).  The leopard print loafers, Topshop, would look amazing with these for uni.
Also had my eye on the Mark Jacobs watch - however it's £179 and I don't have that kind of money to be spending on a watch, so these vintage style watches that you get in a pair for £35 from ASOS.com are looking like the most likely option.
Lastly i've always been a shirt/blouse kind of girl, although the above shirts are two completely different styles, you can never have too many. I'm looking for a white fitted piece and a dip hemmed shirt also. Both would look amazing also with the wine skinny jeans and a leather jacket.
