clashing

FRONT ROW SHOP SHIRT* // MOTEL JACKET* // TOPSHOP 'JONI' JEANS // H&M BOOTS // ACCESSORIZE NECKLACE
When I spotted this furry leopard print bomber on the Motel site, I knew it had to be mine. It's so warm, so nineties, so easy to wear, and is a little more subtle than some of the crazy fur coats that you can find on the high-street whilst still nodding to the trend. I love the way it looks clashed with other prints, and this monochrome shirt is another fab find from Front Row Shop - you can have a look at how I styled one of their fluffy jumpers in this post. The site is full of unique staple pieces that you can't find anywhere else, and they're currently having a 50% off Black Friday event where you can grab some serious bargains! Also, back to Motel, I went to their event last week at Pro Green's club in Leicester Square and it was so much fun. Thank you Fabienne for the invite! As always it was great to meet up with some of my favourite bloggers and make the most of the free cocktails. Motel always know how to throw a great party! Also, if you haven't checked out their party collection yet, make sure you do so ASAP - there are sequinned, metallic and PVC pieces in abundance, and it is to die. Please excuse me while I add the entire 'new in' section to my Christmas wishlist.

it takes two

PRIMARK JUMPER // TOPSHOP SKIRT (SALE) // MISSGUIDED CARDIGAN* // H&M BOOTS // TOPSHOP NECKLACE // ACCESSORIZE STUDDED BRACELET
A bit of knitwear overload in the eyes of some in today's post perhaps, however to be honest I don't think this is possible as we collide head on with winter, and I attempt to insulate myself with the assistance of as many fluffy items of clothing as possible (see further examples here and here). I do become a bit of a knitwear fanatic as soon as the cold weather hits but lets face it, who doesn't love a cosy jumper or two, or three, or so many that you can no longer count them on two hands? This Primark gem is the latest addition to my growing collection of fluffy jumpers, and is one of my favourites. However I've also got a big soft spot for this mammoth Missguided loop-knit cardigan, which is indescribably warm. Missguided have really come up trumps with their knitwear this season, and I'm currently eyeing up this shearling bad boy which also comes in black, as well as these badass boots (so not knitwear I know, but worth a mention all the same).

New Look Winter Wishes Charity Ball

MY OUTFIT: WAREHOUSE DRESS // TOPSHOP SOCKS // ACCESSORIZE NECKLACE // NEW LOOK CLUTCH* // EBAY HEELS // PRIMARK COAT
JULIA'S OUTFIT: TOPSHOP SKIRT // PRIMARK TOP // ASOS NECKLACE // TOPSHOP JACKET // PRIMARK CLUTCH // NEW LOOK HEELS
So last Wednesday night, myself and my friend Julia were lucky enough to attend the New Look Winter Wishes Charity Ball. I quite literally couldn't believe that I'd actually been invited - it was by far one of the biggest, snazziest, most exclusive events that I've yet attended! We ate a delicious three course meal, enjoyed performances from Flawless and The Saturdays (genuinely knew all the lyrics, how sad), drank copious amounts of champagne and wine, and took full advantage of the photo booth! The highlight of the night for me was definitely having my outfit complimented in the toilets by Ashley from Made in Chelsea (classy), and I was also so excited to meet Tanya Burr - she is so beautiful! But of course the event was held in order to raise money for charity, and it was amazing to see so many people donating unbelievable amounts during the auction - one man actually bid £20,000. I'm still in shock. Needless to say it was a great night; it was fab to meet some fellow bloggers and get dolled up, and I'd like to thank Rhian for the invite! You're the best.

P.S Sorry for the terrible iPhone photos!

TOPSHOP JEANS // CHOIES COAT* // MOTEL JUMPER* // MONKI BOOTS via ASOS // NEW LOOK CLUTCH // ACCESSORIZE NECKLACE
Fluffy jumper number two today! My fluffy knitwear collection has expanded rapidly since this post featuring this Front Row Shop beauty, which has unfortunately led to a simultaneous increase in the quantity of hand-washing that needs to be done - a small price to pay for such great knitwear if you ask me! This Motel number is uber soft, and the slight crop, light grey knit and high neck make it feel so nineties, which can never be a bad thing. I also love my new Choies coat which smartens up everything and is surprisingly cosy (I got an M, so get an L if you want it more oversized!), and also those Monki boots that sold out so fast on ASOS a week or two ago! I'm so chuffed that I got my hands on them, and look forward to wearing them to death in the coming weeks.
