I've relocated!

Hi everyone! Just to let you all know, I've relocated to start a blog with my friend called Our London Wardrobe. It's going to be all about fashion in the city and we would love your support!

Just click here to go check it out! (we follow back!)


Along the Cote D'Azur

 Imma let you in on a secret. I've worn this exact outfit twice in three days *insert your own sounds of shocked horror*. However, I hold my hands up in defeat. I may have brought several what-i-think-are-fashionable outfits with me but when you're walking around all day, comfort trumps all.

Vintage Ralph Lauren Jumper
Primark Skirt
Primark Trainers
Hermes Bag

Parisian Casual

 My uniform for casual comfort is:
a) black jeans
b) trainers
c) white t-shirt
d) mild attempts at accessorising
Spent the day wandering along the Champs Elysees in my trainers and jeans. Living in London it is more arduous seeing my friends in Cornwall than getting to Paris and yet the trip is seldom made. Having said that, this is my upteenth time here in Paris. However something has changed since my last visit as a 14 year old. Now, I have discovered my burning desire to join the clan of Parisian, beret-wearing, crepe-eating, chic, charming French girls. To assuage this hunger I have made my wallet unhappy by running wild in French vintage boutiques *slap on the wrist considering I am a student with little to no money*
Despite all the beautiful French pieces I bought during my trip (haul coming soon), the macaroons from L'Aduree were the highlight of the trip. Yes, I am aware, I really need to do something to suppress this inner foodie.

Seeing Double: Yves Saint Laurent/ Zara

Despite my too-large-it's-ridiculous collection of leather jackets/bombers/ trenches (yes, I have a leather trench), I have come to the realisation that enough will never be enough for a shopaholic/hoarder like myself.

In my spare time (i.e time that should be spent studying) I like to browse the Harrods website-as you do. Soon enough I found myself swooning/ salivating/ almost-crying-with-longing over this YSL leather jacket.

Cue the jacket!

This beauty comes with the hefty price tag of £2,950. In other words- 'f*cking hell!'

You can imagine how my heart skipped a beat when browsing Zara  I came across this......

Prepare yourselves:

How could I not bring her home?

There are several things I love about this jacket:

  1. Made from the softest, butteriest lambskin I have ever felt. I swear, this leather is better quality than my Armani jacket that sure as hell cost a lot more. 
  2. The detail on this piece is beautiful and subtle, giving it a much more expensive feel. I would definitely assume this was designer if I saw a girl wearing it on the street.
  3. It is very light- an essential when it comes to jackets for me. I am very slight and petite and generally find it very uncomfortable to wear heavy jackets for more than an hour or so. 
  4. Finally, it only set me back £149.99! ( seems like alot but for leather of this quality I was very happy to hand over my card)

All in all, this girl is very happy !

Floral Bomb

Zara Jacket
UniQlo Tee
Vintage Shorts
Chanel Bag
Heel from Korean Market
Tiger Sunglasses

This jacket was made for summer. And since the English weather is borderline pathetic most of the year, I had to pounce on the opportunity to wear it here in Korea. You would think it is difficult to style but it's quite the opposite as it would look great colour blocked with any of the colours on the jacket. 

Simple Stripes

I am slapping myself on the wrist with a scornful look upon my face for my appalling lack of posts these past few months. I would offer the usual sheepish explanation that I have been thoroughly preoccupied avec mes éxamens etc but I will spare you the boredom. Incidentally, I am on my summer holidays thus, have plenty of time to devote to my lovely readers. Currently I am in Korea, with my mum and this is what I wore on my second day here.

Shirt: Primark
Skirt: Korean Market
Belt: Sportmax, MaxMara
Shoes: Korean Market

The Ear Cuff.

Now, I am not edgy/rocker chic etc by any standards, but these I couldn't pass up. Yes, as predicted my boyfriend/parents hate them but they have no clue, right?
