With Christmas and party season approaching, now is the perfect time to stock up on party dresses! I’ve picked out a few of my favourties by Little Mistress, available now on Littlewoods.
One item of clothing I’ve been on the lookout for recently is a good pair of leather (faux or otherwise) trousers. I already have one fab pair from Missguided which have a really cool crocodile-skin effect, but I wanted something plainer to add to my collection and this pair from AX Paris are perfect! They’re not matte but aren’t too shiny, and also aren’t movement restricting-ly tight. The also have some nice detail on the knee, a non-leather strip on the inner leg and are faux leather so are vegi and vegan friendly. I think I will be getting a lot of wear out of them this winter, but here I paired them with another new piece from Choies – this very Alexander Wang-esque (I think so anyway!) textured jumper. I rolled the bottom cuff under here as the length sat awkwardly with the trousers, but I like that this jumper actually fits me rather than being cropped or oversized like most of my others. My adorable Choies Marc By Marc Jacobs-esque flats made an appearance too as it was a dry day.
I also wore my AMAZING new Primark coat which I’ve lived in since I finally got my hands on it after seeing it online months ago. It’s so fab I’m almost tempted to go back and buy another in case it bobbles easily… hm. At £32 it is a steal compared to pretty much every other high street alternative; all hail Primark!
I’m giving away this fabulously colourful ‘Barbee’ floral jewelled skater dress from Prodigy Red. I only have one dress to give away, and it is a size 8. Size 8 is now sold out online, so this is the perfect opportunity to get your hands on one!

I was recently invited to participate in a blogger style-off by online store Yumi Direct, and here is what I came up with! I chose to style this really simple textured fit & flare dress, because I love the classic shape and length and I think that the subtle textured print is a really nice touch. I’ve also found that it translates really well into business-wear with a fitted black blazer and court shoes!
As far as the style-off goes, I would really appreciate it if you could vote for me by liking my image on the Yumi Facebook page! Please comment if you do, I would love to return the favour by taking a look at your blog, or voting for you in any competitions you have entered.
Here, I wore it with this adorable fluffy ‘Fun Fur Jacket’ from Pussycat London, which is a bargain on sale at £22, and super cute patent loafers from Primark with Topshop white pop socks. It is a bit schoolgirl but I really love the combination of pop socks and heels at the moment. What do you think? Don’t forget to vote 🙂
As you might be able to tell, this is an outfit I wore a couple of weeks ago, whilst it was still somewhat warm – I’m currently freezing and haven’t quite worked out how to use the heating in my flat… . I couldn’t resist sharing it though, this coat is just amazing! I love the colours and especially the tailored style; it is another Zara-esque bargain at £24 from SheInside, and I’m hoping to still get plenty of wear out of it throughout winter too (layers are everything!!). Here I wore it over this super pretty Missguided dress, which I wore in my Missguided blogger edit but have also worn a bunch of times since. I love wearing it with a few different interesting necklaces, which I’m finally starting to build up a decent collection of. I especially love my obsidian pendant by IndigoMoon – you can currently order similar pendants and other one-of-a-kind jewels from the lovely Sarah on the IndigoMoon Facebook page.
Last night Vogue brought its famous Fashion’s Night Out to my city – how exciting! From Selfridges to Spinningfields to the Arndale, a variety of shops, brands and boutiques held special events into the evening, celebrating everything fashion.
I didn’t quite know what to expect from FNO as I had never ventured down to the one in London, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was super busy almost everywhere as was to be expected, but there were plenty of fab things to see and do which were worth braving the crowds for.
I started off at BooHoo‘s fashion bus, which they had stationed just off Market Street. BooHoo had their sparkling upcoming Boutique collection on show (which will be available for general purchase at the end of this month), as well as make-overs, cute pink BooHoo cars and a cool Instagram activity.
Harvey Nichols was hot on Selfridges’ heels as usual, with masses of fun things to see and do. Pic n Mix, Pin The Pony on Karl, exciting talks from a variety of influential people in the world of fashion (I caught a bit of Sophia Webster’s interview, she’s so adorable!), and some more famous faces including Proudlock and Jamie from Made In Chelsea. Despite feeling sort of bad for them both being mobbed by fans whenever they surfaced from backstage, I couldn’t resist a selfie with Proudlock! :’)
I also ate a cute tiny hotdog…
What good is a winter wardrobe which doesn’t feature a bit (or a lot) of tartan? I found these trousers in Primark a few weeks ago (in their formal section along with a matching blazer which I didn’t quite have the guts to buy to complete the tartan suit, although I am somewhat regretting that decision now!). I love the dark colours and lack of red, I think that avoiding red tartan trousers altogether is the easiest way of sidestepping looking like you’ve bought a “Punk” costume for Halloween (that’s not to say that some people can’t rock them though). These are very subtle and easy to wear, and the shape is really great too!
Here I paired them with a mesh paneled top from Choies, amazing new imitation suede and sheepskin biker jacket from H&M. The jacket was a bargain £30 because I used a 25% discount code from an H&M email (I would definitely recommend signing up to their mailing list!), but even at full price (£39.99) it is definitely affordable and makes a nice change from the usual leather biker.
