Call Me Picture Perfect

Palm prints and really any tropical-esque prints have been all over the catwalks and highstreet for SS14. I adore this crop top from Warehouse, it's a really wearable way of wearing the print in the toned down shades of navy and cream. A bit of candy pink lips and some gold studs and I'll be ready to embrace the sunshine! x

Call Me Flow

I went vintage shopping with my amazing friends the weekend before last. Geraint of His Name Is Fashion and Sinead of Hackney Rose. We went to the East End Thrift Store's £1 jumble sale, and boy did I find some amazing pieces. You will definitely see me sporting my fabulous finds soon. 

As the weather was glorious I wore my amazing white slip dress from Forever 21. It has beautiful lace detailing on the front and around the sides and is such a comfortable piece. I literally felt like I was wearing a nightie, but to stop it looking like I was I paired my dress with a studded leather jacket and biker boots. x

Call Me Darling

A couple of weeks back I was off work battling an awful cold. I'm one of those people who can't sit still for very long, so being at home for 3 days I was going pretty insane; I mean how many episodes of Criminal Minds can I actually watch in one day?! I decided to spend my time a bit more creatively and spent a lovely amount of time on my sewing machine.

I have a ridiculous amount of fabric at home and I found this amazing two-tone fabric and knew I had to do something with it. I've been in love with Midi Skirts (obsessed is probably more appropriate) and decided this would be my little project. I opted for a double layer full skirt with pleat detail around the waist band to give the skirt some movement. 
(pinning my pleats in the pic above)

When I finally was able to wear the skirt I thought monochromatic florals would add a bit of interest contrasted with little hits of gold hardware on my studded clutch, shoes and belt. x

Call Me Hint

Maybe life is better looking through Rose-Tinted Glasses, I know mine would be if I was looking out of these dream worthy Mink Pink sunglasses. I love monochrome themed looks that have a hit of colour thrown in, but I always find that my percentage of black in the looks I normally wear is much higher. This Spring/Summer I will definitely be getting more white in my wardrobe and in key statement pieces like a coat and accessories. I adore this Trager Delaney white wool coat (how amazing is the detail on the shoulder?) and the ASOS white sandals. x

Call Me Guilty

A little outfit post just before going to my cousins birthday party last weekend. It was so hard trying to find something to wear and  it was the end of a long shopping trip when I saw this exquisitely bright pink floral printed skirt from Topshop, it completely stole my heart and I knew I had to get it for the party. Not only is the print gorgeous, the skirt is structured amazingly and the fabric has beautiful quilted detail. I decided to keep the top basic with a plain black cami and for shoes, I picked out the grey hues in the florals and decided on these amazing stone grey strappy sandals from New Look for a steal at £19.99! (New Look's footwear are absolutely killing it this season) As I kept the feminine feel flowing with a lace clutch I added a tough looking leather jacket, a long black formal coat did work with the outfit but I'm a sucker for leather and studs. 

The skirt itself is quite a statement piece and is quite formal in structure and shape and so it's perfect for events. I do think it's quite versatile so I can't wait to style it for a day friendly look! x

Call Me Turn

I went out for dinner with my family and opted for a tonal pastel pink outfit with hits of black. I got this light pink sequinned crop top from Topshop in the sale for a bargain of £15. I love how the boyish boxy shape contrasts with the ultra feminine candy pink sequins. I hope everyone had a marvellous weekend. x

Call Me Limitless

Maybe my favourites for this week are a bit optimistic seeing as apparently we'll be getting snow in London soon. Oh well, hopefully in the near future I can look to get (and wear) some of my own white lace pants; these Givenchy ones are totally to die for and definitely on my wishlist. I thought about basics with a twist to accompany such a statement piece, so I thought of a candy coloured shirt, strappy nude Saint Laurent's and a navy leather jacket Danny Zuko would be jealous of. For a little added femininity don the nails with Barry M Silk Nail Paint and Oasis' gorgeous Limited Edition jewellery.
