Outfit of The Day – Saggy Sequins

IMAG0523

  • Sequin Baseball Dress – Native Rose (bought at Urban Outfitters)
  • Ripped Boyfriend Jeans – Urban Outfitters
  • DR. Martens (VERY old)

I’m completely in love with my jazzy sequin baseball dress; but it’s one of those items that’s so jazzy that once you’ve worn it on a few nights out you feel like you have to keep it under wraps for a while.. because its so memorable.  I wanted to try it out as a dressed-down daytime outfit so I can get more use out of it.  I think it looks well paired with these super baggy boyfriend jeans, and the length of the dress hides the fact that the jeans keep falling down round my arse!

My trusty Dr. Marten boots are so old, I don’t even want to think about it..  it makes me feel like a withering old lady.

(9 years old if you must know….UGH).

Aside from the fact that I feel like I’m getting eve- closer to middle age, my DM’s have served me SO well; they’ve been through many a festival and general hideous Belfast weather and they’re still going.  Not a hole in sight.  They have a lot of scuffs on the top but I think that adds to the look of them – and they’re soft as butter as I’ve worn them so much.

You can check out the boots Dr. Marten’s has to offer here.  I’m loving these:

Outfit of the Day – Galaxy Print Jacket

IMAG0271Featuring:

  • Galaxy Print Windbreaker Jacket – Pop Sick Vintage (Asos Marketplace Boutique)
  • Bobble Hat – Lazy Oaf
  • Caterpillar Boots – ASOS
  • Red lipstick- ‘Ruby Woo’ by MAC

My jacket game feels very strong!  What an amazing print 😀 – this Pop Sick Vintage windbreaker arrived in the post yesterday and I couldn’t be happier with it.  There are loads of fun hidden pockets and compartments and it’s just the right amount of over-sized.   It’s also lined so its cosy for a windbreaker, which is great for Newcastle’s blustery weather.

I hate the winter, and around this time of year I would usually say that I can’t wait to put my coats and jackets in to hibernation and break out the skimpy summer clothes..but a jacket like this changes that.  I feel so cheerful wearing it!

Throw back Thursdays – Street Style Snaps from London

A few of my snaps of the Street Style that London had to offer last year :D.  **All my own photography**

IMG_0643-2Spotted outside the Topshop show space at London Fashion Week in September.  Those trousers are SO good.  I wonder if I could do that myself? Attack a pair of jeans with a stanley knife..? Paired with a casual, loose fitting black polo neck and a pair of  white Nike blazers this look is a perfect example of sport luxe styling.

 

SAM_0937 SAM_0941 SAM_0942SAM_0945 I loveee Sinead’s bright blue roots – created using Kiko Hair Shadow, great for a temporary change – and hides root growth at the same time, win.  This would look great paired with some gel and glitter, as seen in my Glitter Hair Inspiration post.

 

SAM_0933 SAM_0936 bagCheck out the spiky leather backpack she’s wearing here

IMG_0625-2More amazing accessories  – that hat is the one!

IMG_0650-2Some great back patches & conversational prints:

Festival treats

It’s oxegen time! and if you haven’t got the full four-day camping ticket you still have some time to grab some things before you go, aswell as some treats for any other festivals still to come!

Here are some fun things I’ve found 🙂

How gorgeous is this rain poncho from irregular choice!?  I love the print.  The best part about it though, is that it packs away into a little bunny shaped bag!!  Click here to see it.

It also comes in a navy sequin print – see below:

Equally is gorgey-porgey I think.  Both £48 each at irregularchoice.com –click here

I love this stack of bracelets from ASOS, £10 –click here.  However I’ve recently learnt how to make pom poms – they’re really easy!  Below are the pom poms I made a few days ago:

In my next post I’ll show you how to make them and try to make a little bracelet out of them.  All you’ll need is some wool in the colours you want the pom poms, some cardboard (a cereal packet will do) and a pair of scissors :).

I’m a big fan of face paints for festivals – so much fun.  I bought this set last weekend in preparation for Creamfields which I’m going to in August.  It’s a bit early, I know, but I love face painting anyway so it doesn’t matter :).  A few days ago I took my little sister to see Pirates of the Caribbean, and she decided she’d like to be painted as a witch for the occasion.  A bit random, but sure why not I guess!  Here she is:

freaky deakie! –  I painted new, witchy eyes on her eyelids 😀

I love this little bandeau/shorts combo!  It’ll see you through from beach to festival: throw on over your bikini with sandals for the beach/ add a raincoat, leather fringe bag, a pair of grubby wellies and big shades for festival.  £26 from TOPSHOP – click here.

Najavo print socks – so pretty! £8 from URBAN OUTFITTERS – click here.

I was having a bit of a struggle trying to find a cheap rucksack that was big enough to fit all my festival gear in – but small enough to fit the regulations for hand luggage on my flight to liverpool for creamfields.  We didn’t book luggage on as it was working out at an extra £30 :/.  Thankfully I remembered I have this lovely rucksack I used to use as my school bag 🙂 I got mine from TK MAXX and they often have some nice jansport bags in there.

To the left is another backpack I found on the tk-maxx website – £14.99, which is really cheap compared to some of the other ones I’ve seen.  It’s a good size too.  Click here.

I bought this glitter palette from URBAN OUTFITTERS yesterday – perfect for adding a bit of  glam.  It’s in the sale for £4!  Click here.  Below is some glittery eye makeup inspiration.

I don’t really like the shape of the glitter around this models eyes, I think it’s too panda-like.  But the idea of the grungy glittery eye is cool and really easy to do.  Also it will look better as it smudges :).  This image is from the Vena Cava A/W 2011 catwalk.

How fun is this mohawk hat from RIVER ISLAND!? perfect if your feeling a bit chilly/having a hair crisis.  It also comes in black. £24.99 – click here.  They also have a very girly indian headdress for £29.99:

pretty, isn’t it :)?  Click here.

These Bitching and Junkfood shorts are amazing, but I still thing £60 for a pair of shorts is a bit much :/ – check out my previous post on their launch at URBAN OUTFITTERS last month here.  and click here to see the shorts.

Poi (seen above) are super fun – I’m bringing mine to creamfields.  See them below:

I got mine from Barcelona – but you can buy them from the internet if you’re interested.  Here’s a youtube video of some basic poi spinning :).

That’s all for today folks – hope you enjoyed it + if you have any questions just post on my facebook page!

Barcelona: What I’m packing

This is my last post before I jet off to Barca my dears (I have to wake up at 4 in the morning to get the flight…:( )

A sneaky peek into what’s going in my suitcase!

Hi suitcase:

Aztec print bikini, £28, URBAN OUTFITTERS.  I love the zip at the front and the removable straps for maximum tanning.  Click here.

Me no likey burny.  P20 only needs one application a day and lets you tan while staying protected.  You can get this from any chemist type place but I got mine from Superdrug for £12.95: Click here.

Cutie pop, daisy top.  £28, URBAN OUTFITTERS.  Click here.

‘You Rebel’ tinted moisturiser from BENEFIT (with SPF 15 yay!).  Click here.

Click here £6.99, NEWLOOK.

As seen in my previous lookbook post – click.  £30, URBAN OUTFITTERS.

My signature scent, nom nom.  click here

lovellly playsuit from PULL AND BEAR, £19.99 (bargain I think!).  Unfortunately P&B don’t display any of their products on their website (ehh sort it out guys) so you’ll have to just use your li’l legs and walk to their store in Victoria Square to see it!

Best bronzer ever! Doesn’t have any of that nasty shimmery, sparkly crap in it.  Just like tan in a powder form.  £23.50 from BENEFIT.  click here.

bangles, £5, CLAIRES ACCESORIES.  Click here

I can’t resist buying organiser type things – these are little mini bottles/tubs that you buy empty and then you can decant just enough of your various beauty products into them to last you the holiday.  Such a space saver!  I bought the bottles from semi-chem for 99p and the tubs from superdrug for around £1.20.

Inside the tubs/botts I’ve put:  Radox shower gel – African sanctuary, Pantene pro-v repair and protect shampoo and conditioner and Aveeno moisturising cream (this is formulated to help eczema prone skin, which I don’t have.  I find it really good as a general moisturiser).

Reading on holidays is one of my favourite things ever ever.  Can’t wait to get stuck into these, all from http://www.waterstones.com.

Crochet top, as seen in my previous post ‘The crochet comeback’.  Probably gonna stick to wearing this at nighttime though, I’d rather not have a crochet print tan line.

yumyum, beach towel from H&M.  £6.99.  Click here.

Orange grandad top, TOPSHOP, £18.  Click here.

The all important epilator – for de-fuzzing!  If you can handle a wee bit of pain definitely invest in one of these,  they keep your legs smooth for waaay longer than shaving and they don’t remove skin cells like waxing does.   I’ve also noticed that it weakens the hairs over time so they grow back really thin.  A winner all around!  I got mine from boots ages ago but here’s a similar one: Click £49.99.

My sunnies, £4.99 from NEWLOOK.  Click.

Bandeau, £12 URBAN OUTFITTERS.  Click here.  Choose your underwear wisely for going on holiday, you won’t want to wear anything that digs in if you get a bit of sunburn.  These bandeau’s are great and come in frilly, printed styles as well (check out my first lookbook post to see my leopard print one).

Tribal hairband, £6 from CLAIRES ACCESORIES.  I do not want a fringe-tan-line.

Trusty birkenstocks! As seen in previous lookbook post: click.

Im wearing this ASOS skirt on the flight (with my banana shorts under it so I can quickly whip it off as soon as I step off the plane! – check out my previous lookbook post to see my banana shorts.)  I’m sorry to tell you this skirt is now out of stock – boohoo!

Finally we mustn’t forget:

A.K.A. hangover cure.

So guys, that is my suitcase!  Hope you enjoyed it :).  I’ll try to do a post or two from Barca but don’t be too annoyed if I don’t get the time cause I’ll have lots of posts when I come back :D.

Love you all, see you in a week!

Menswear – Festivals

I feel as though I’ve been neglecting the menswear side of things! In this post I wanted to look at Festival style for boys.

Obviously there are different types of festival (e.g. oxegen/planet love) which require a totally different fashion etiquite.  For this post I wanted to look at boys style for a rock/indie festival.  I’ve hunted around and comprised an outfit + accessories in 10 items; enjoy!
