Wonderland…

Hey boo!

So this past week I discovered the Wonderland Shop that they have in London (for those of you who don’t know Wonderland is a fashion magazine).

From the outside it looked like a mermaid “wonderland” and that’s why it caught my eye, once we got inside it had a very cool laid back vibe and every inch of that place is just aesthetically pleasing, from magazine covered changing rooms, to photography studio lights on the white walls.

And obviously you can’t go to a store like that without leaving with something and I am the last person to come up with an excuse why not to spend money or to turn down a fashion magazine… EVER!!!

I’m keeping my looks very stripped back and keeping them to their bare essentials, this look is very simple but with the addition of the jewelry and of course the hair, it gives you a little something to look at, this is a simple yet striking look, proving that you don’t always have to do the most!

Monochromatic simplicity…

So I recently cut my hair! In a slightly different way than I’m used to, I’m enjoying being a bit more daring and it has given me a new sort of confidence, I feel more comfortable making big decisions and being ambitious, its funny how much power a little hair cut can have!

Since I’ve been focused on my Instagram and making sure its looking right, I’ve extended that to myself (hence the haircut) I’ve decided that no matter what you won’t find me half way dressed or ill represented, I want to treat each individual day like its fashion week! I slay all day err day!

This is quite a simple one but I feel with the new hair less definitely is more, even though I’m literally only wearing one color (black), the outfit is well put together and I look sharp yet comfortable and casual!

Re-starting the monochrome theme…

Hey guys!

I know it’s been a while but I am planning on getting back to this blog on a weekly basis!! I have recently learnt (once more) that I really can’t handle not having things to do, and I only work well when working under pressure or when I’m doing 3 projects at once!

So even though this may sound a bit mundane I have started to focus on my Instagram again! With fashion week coming up in less than a month I really need to make sure it accurately represents me as a person and honestly it was looking neglected and messy!

So the easiest way to clean your feed up and organize it is to strip it back! I try to have some pictures that are close up and others that are more distant and have more empty space in them, but the most important factor is that they all follow the same color scheme.

Every picture I post has an element of black or white, the reason for doing this is because no matter what I post as long as I have at least one of the colors in the picture, it will match the rest, because the worst thing is when you take amazing pictures but when you add it to your feed it looks messy and not as great!

Here are a few examples of what I’ve posted!!

Fashion week…

So obviously I went to fashion week in September!! But I only went for two days (Saturday & Sunday) but it was suuuppperrr fun! Met a lot of amazing people and got to just slay the day away for the weekend.

For the first day I decided to keep it quite monochrome and simple, but I still wanted to make a statement so I wore a mesh white top and a wide brimmed fedora, just to tszuj things up a bit.

Jacket: Rokit Vintage (+ personalised)   Jeans: H&M

For the second day I wanted to dial it back since the first day was quite a strong “I have arrived” look I wanted to soften it and do light colours to contrast the previous day!

So I decided to just wear some distressed jeans, a white t-shirt and this denim jacket that me and my friend personalised (she done the embroidery) it was something really chill, but once people noticed the back of the jacket they loved it!

Overall it was a fun experience and I’m very happy that I went, I am hoping I can visit them with more frequency and make some more fashion friends!!

London Fashion Week is on its way…

So as many of you may know by now, London Fashion Week is literally this weekend!!

And with this knowledge brings exciting opportunities and days out!

I did attend the event for the first time last year, and it was nothing how I thought it would be, not even in the slightest, I thought it would be glamorous and peaceful, but once I arrived what I was met with was complete chaos, people running in front of cars to get a picture, everyone screaming and running around.

But even though things seemed ‘messy’ the people and the fashion were completely out of this world! And this is what inspired me to start my Instagram and my blog!

I loved how shameless and powerful everyone was just by being themselves and owning it, this is what I hope to emulate in my day to day life, making every corridor or sidewalk my own personal runway!

I’m planning to attend again this year, and this time I am prepared to dress OVER HONEY!! Hahahah this year, I have arrived TO SLAY BITCH!

Little sneak peak!

Hope to see you there!! Xo

Outfit of the day: Pokémon Go…

As I’m sure you guys know by now Pokémon Go has taken over the world! And now even I have been dragged into it thanks to my friend Chantelle so like every other normal teenage human being we planned our whole day around it, and went on the hunt for some Pokémon!

I have had this denim jacket for quite a while, as you may know from previous posts but because I felt like I already wore it every possible way I could, I decided to give it some character and personalize it slightly! I decided to add some iron-on patches to give it some attitude and sass.

A colour that I really enjoy to pair with denim is red, I feel the complement each other well and make for a nice bright casual look!
