Dress - Topshop (old) / Bag - Accessorize / Boots - Topshop / Bracelets - Ebay and h&m

This dress is ridiculously old, but you know you can always style the same kinda outfit the same anyways :) I was going through my wardrobe as it definitely needs sorting out, i have so much in there its a joke, a lot of it is years old too and there is no chance of me wearing any of the pieces or fitting in to them!!!

This is my favouriteeee bag ever! My dad brought it me about 3 years ago but accessorize always have beaded embroidered little bags like this perfect for slouching over your shoulder to give a pop to any outfit! Its also in good shape still, which is surprising because i bulk it out stupidly when I'm getting ready at a friends. I have been home this weekend, again, planning things for my paps birthday and shopping again, brought some super black shoes from River Island in the sale. And i'm a size 4 so i get all the good picks.. (i fit in to a size 3 in the pair i brought....) It's been noticed that my feet are shrinking over the years, anyway its Monday tomorrow i know how you all feel.

Night lovers.. E x

Ok so recently i was accepted to join the Motel Rocks Street Team, which I'm absolutely chuffed about (yay)! So it comes to say that I will be crushing over them so much more than i already do secretly in my little office at home! I have had an amazing package through the door.. The Lilah Jumpsuit in Blue.. Gah dying! So perfect! This is available here

Trousers - Charity Shop and Reworked / Top - Charity Shop / Necklace - My Own

A pair of white trousers in my opinion should be a staple in any girls wardrobe, just like a LBD or a pair of smashing black boots (but i know we all have those anyway) I picked these tailored pants up from a charity shop in a size 16 and just hand stitched them in at the front to create this pleated look... would you have ever known!? There's a better photo of me in them below from Manchester Vogue Fashion Night Out. Yet again, the top is also from a charity shop. Silver, Gold and Holographic seem to be a key trend this season that not many people are aware of, and when i saw this top and noticed it was paisley print too.. well i had to get it for £3.. who wouldn't. My choker is genuinely a pair of tights cut up and rolled in to a strange with a vintage pendant on it! Shabbang. 
I have had a weekend at home this week with the family, as i was a very lucky girl and got put off work! Never happens by the way! My paps treated me to a beautiful new leather bag which will be featured soon and i also picked myself up some amazing silver heels from Topshop. I've been shopper happy.. too much!

Gillet - h&m / Trousers - Charity Shop / Boots - Topshop / Bag - TKMaxx

Obviously i had to wear my sky scraper platform boots, it proved a little difficult going up and down the escalators in Selfridges all night, but i managed! 

Dress - Asos / Shoes - Ebay / Bag - Mango

Coat - Topshop / Jumper -h&m / Skirt - Zara / Bag - Asos

So we were wondering around and obviously wanted a drink, so why not hop on the free whiskey band wagon, On the rocks please!

With my girls at the free bar, this photo was taken from the super nice Emily Sheffield, Deputy Editor of British Vogue who stopped us for a photo... this made my night! We did get photographs taken for street style projects too, so we were all happy girlies.

Popcorn machines, hot dog machines and endless amounts of chocolate flavoured lager, Selfridges was littered with all sorts of goodies for the fashion night out. We jumped straight on the candy floss man, obviously, to get a sweet treat before having a look around at everything that was happening. Starting with Radio 1's Jameela Jamil doing an amazing dj set up on the 3rd floor, and finished with standing outside dancing around to the ice cream van shaped DJ booth. We unfortunately missed the amazing Made In Chelsea cast at Harvey Nicholls which we were absolutely gutted about, especially meeting the cheeky Jamie Laing. But on the plus side we got free champagne and there were lots of fun things going on around the store! 

I won't babble on about it too much as most of you have probably heard copious amounts about it, but i would definitely recommend going next year if you missed it this year, especially now its moved to Manchester! YAY!

Coat - River Island / Joggers - Missguided / Shoes - Topshop (old) / Jumper - Primark / 
Necklace - Topshop

Kanye West sports them so why can't us girls ehy?! These beauty's are a killer statement with any top jacket blazer etc. When i got my student loan these are the first item i purchased, but can you blame me? I saw a few snaps of them at LFW a few weeks ago and fell completely in love, just right for those lazy days where you want to look good, but maybe just want to put something comfy on too. These jogger pants actually go really well styled with holographic strappy sandal heels which can be brought from boohoo, and a silk cami top which are pretty much available everywhere! (An outfit of mine from a few nights ago).

 I was after a new coat for a while, one that would serve me right in the cold but that was also light weight. River Island have done the perfect combination in this tailored white, slightly masculine line version. The zips and lapels give it that biker chick edge too. It's a pain to keep clean but it is worth the sacrifice when something looks this good with any outfit. Grab yours here! 

I wish i could wear this outfit everywhere, even on holiday, but that would be silly. Speaking of holidays, I am in the process of looking for somewhere nice to go. However having a birthday on boxing day proves difficult to get time off from anything, yawn! Now i'm off to my friends after a long day at work, completing a street style interview for university and blogging.. to eat as much pizza, drink as much wine, and watch as many awesome films as we can! 
Happy Evenings guys

I'm on a mission to get somewhere new to shoot my blog, as the cellar is proving quite boring to me now, I'd love to know what you think!!

Fur Gillet - Charity Shop / Skirt - H&M / Shirt - Topshop / Boots - H&M / Necklaces - Made

I apologise for my mullet style hair do in these photos, it was completely unintentional and I've only just noticed my business at the front, party at the back doo! Being as it is getting a tad chilly and gillets are a must have this season, as soon as i spotted this on the rail in my local charity shop i pounced on it, i didn't even look at the price... not that i had to in a charity shop but hey! And this little treasure was just £2.95!!! *Gasp* It kinda does go with everything too, when i am venturing out to uni or work, it works well over my leather jacket, as does my black gillet. This is the perfect skirt too, being mesh its not too warm and doesn't make you shiver your knickers off when your outside either! My boyfriend had some old crystals knocking around so i cut some velvet necklace rope and threaded it on, now i have my favourite ever piece of jewellery!!

Also, who started off this horrible flu that's being passed around!? I have fell latest victim and its no fun struggling to even breathe through a nostril! But ... there's always time for a blog post!!!

I'm currently in the process of planning an outfit for Vogues Fashion Night Out in Manchester this Thursday, and I am completely gutted that the perfect pink pvc skirt from Topshop has sold out... isn't everyone? My bank account might have to take a little hit tonight on ebay.
