Retail Therapy

Today I bought the following....

From American Apparel:

From Urban Outfitters:

From eBay:

All in all, quite a good shop? I tried to pick pieces which are easily transferable and can be mixed with different items to give them a bit of extra 'wear' life. I guess I'm sick of buying clothes which are only worn once because they go with absolutely nothing in my wardrobe. Wouldn't have killed me to have gone with more Spring/Summer-esque pieces though, practically everything I purchased is black!

Hanna Beth


I've always lusted after Hanna Beth's locks. And her drastic new hair cut is making me want to shave the side of my head again.

I'm now seriously thinking of dying my hair back to dark brown. Although I wanted to go down the grey-blonde route. And then there's that auburn colour I've always liked. Hmmm far too many choices!

Chloe Sevigny + Elle + Rankin = Quite A Treat

I had my April issue of UK Elle delivered this week and I loved everything about it, in particular the cover shot of Chloe Sevigny. I think she's a great role model for unconventional beauty and she always takes the latest trends and adapts them to her own style in a way which makes it seem as if the entire outfit was designed specifically with her in mind. Her wardrobe for the shoot consists of pieces from Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu (adore the cat print!), Prada, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Louise Goldin and Donna Karan. So basically Chloe Sevigny has been paid to be photographed by the prestigious Rankin for an Elle cover, and gets to wear a dream wardrobe of all my favourite designers in the process. Plus her perfect pins are on full display in every picture. Umm jealous much?

Can Clogs Be Chic?

So according to the likes of Chanel and Louis Vuitton we are all going to be sporting a clog or two this Spring. As much as I love (actually more like worship) the creative genius of Karl Lagerfeld I have to admit that I was pretty skeptical about this. The sight of these clogs automatically flashed my mind back to badly dressed hippy mums waiting at the school gates, further convincing me that there is no flattering way to wear these shoes. However after seeing Alexa Chung and MK Olsen sporting a pair I'm beginning to see how the clog can be wearable and chic off the catwalk. In fact, I'm actually starting to want a pair to team with pretty floral dresses and grey marl tights!

The high street has been quick to adapt to this trend, but Kurt Geiger has produced my personal favourites so far. Wearable and high quality but without the Chanel price tag!

And according to Topshop's blog these beauties will be coming into store very soon!

Oh Orelia

Everyone loves accessories. They transform any outfit from day-to-night, casual-to-chic and can take that Alexander Wang inspired sport luxe outfit right into the ultra-glam luxe zone.

I myself am all about vintage accessories, I love their daintiness and girliness however their fragility is something which I'm not so fond of. Far too many pieces have crumbled apart in my hands and left me longing for something unique, vintage and girly that came without the second-hand experience. I've never been able to fill that gap in my life.....until Orelia stepped in!

Orelia provides hand-made vintage inspired pieces but with a modern twist. From gorgeous pastel feather headpieces to tougher gold chain bracelets there's something for every girl and every outfit. And with the likes of Grazia and Elle flying the Orelia flag this is sure to be a brand we'll all be seeing more of!

Here are a few of my favourite pieces:

Available now on-line and as a concession within Topshop at the Liverpool, Oxford Circus and Newcastle stores!
