From The Vault

Clearing out my overwhelming image files on my Mac.. I stumbled across this little gem. How was this over three years ago?! 

Outfit prep before my Saturday jaunt.
-Bought the quilted messenger bag! (After trawling 4 Zara stores to find one in stock).

Get yours quick here.

Always Play Fur

I spent today at two of my favourite shopping haunts, Portobello Market and Brick Lane. Anyone in or around London today would have noticed the dramatic drop in temperature -my frozen nose and paralysed fingers are testament to this. 

Both haunts were peppered with fur, both real and fake, vintage and new. Whether you're pro or against it, there's a way for everyone to feel the fur effect.

I'm on the hunt for a vintage mink.. And will scour until I find the perfect one.. that I am 100% confident was ethically sourced. A couple of it's price friendly faux fur counterparts have caught my eye on the high street. They'll satisfy my need until I find 'the one'.

Bernhard Willhelm // Viral Vacuums

"I love sex and I love making love. I am clever, employed, well-read, opinionated, single and my mom constantly assures me, despite the horrendous photos, that I am irresistible. Just recently, I decided that I will not die, so it is inevitable too that I will realise my dream which is to be an ex-asshole and to be a rich contented bum."

Well Mr Willhelm, your clothes are not for me.. but I think your reasonings are fetch. Super gifs too.

Bag Boner

So I bring you this post from my bed, with a mother of an eye squint thanks to a scratched cornea. God only knows how I managed it.. but managed it I did. In a big way. 

After spending the majority of yesterday and today engulfed in a multitude of floral pillows and blankets, my eye has finally adjusted to light in 5-10 minute bouts at least. 

I've become pretty handy at navigating life/my flat/the internet with my left eye.. so it was with this beady little fellah, that I spotted this.

A little bit Chanel-y, a little bit celine-y, a little bit mine-y. 

Best of all, it's from Zara. £39.99. That's THIRTY NINE POUNDS AND NINETY NINE PENCE. As part of my birthday present, my lovely friends bought me in-store credit for my fave high street store. They know me too well. I'm all over Zara this weekend.

I can't wait to see it with two functioning eyes.

KENZO Moment

New I should have bought that bad boy when I first saw it. 
Shoulda Coulda Woulda are the last words of a Kenzo-less fool.

Blonde Ambition

As the one year birthday of my chocolate brown locks aproaches, the desire to return to my buttery blonde ways ensues. The constant battle between my vanity and the health of my hair folicles will probably continue well into the winter months.

The Boot: On Asos

I'm a sucker for a good winter boot. Especially when they start with G and end in venchy. Unfortunately, post London move and pre Christmas present buying, I can't really excuse the price tag.

Call me biased.. but Asos is most definately the place to head for trend led, price happy winter footwear. I've collected my top 10 here. The Asos Clash suede knee highs being my absolute fave! They look SO much more expensive than they are. The perfect example of a designer look for a high street price. 

Straight to the top of my Xmas list.


The Russian pack don't do it by halves.

Totally following their lead this leason.

Oh Hey

Ok dear blog. I've been neglecting you.. Sozzles. But for good reason I assure you. In the last fortnight I packed up my bags and headed for the big city. Two taxis, a bus journey and numerous sofa's later I moved into my new room in East London, which is to be my base for the next 3 months of my Editorial internship at Asos. I've learned so much in the space of two weeks. Enough buzz words to fill an Asos dictionary, and enough life lessons to fill at least half a chapter of a biography. 

I'm sure there will be a more detailed post to come... And I'll divulge the inner mechanics of the social/fashion/style/business/marketing/design hub that is Greater London House aka Asos HQ.

But for now, I am far too exhausted to write something that does it justice. 

So, here's a picture of one of my A/W must haves.. courtesy of Henry holland. 

Hello bejewelled hat. 
Be. Mine.

Vote CARDIFF as the UK's most stylish city!! #StreetFashionWeek

Last week, I, along with six other Grazia Style Spotters embarked on a whistle stop tour of our home cities to find the best of the best of the sartorially blessed for #StreetFashionWeek.

The snaps are in.. and now it's down to you to vote CARDIFF as the best dressed city!!

"Eclectic is the vibe in Cardiff, with clashing prints, kooky accessories and pops of colour. Grazia found boyish blazers, big satchels and lots of hats - Cardiff was probably the most fashion-adventurous city they saw. The cargo jacket reigns supreme in Cardiff adding that dash of grunge"  

How to vote:

You can now vote HERE!

Everyone who votes will be in with a chance of winning TONI & GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe styling product sets worth £50 and one of five £50 Warehouse vouchers!!
