I Wore This! 25/06/14

Hello!

Today I’m bringing you a super cool outfit post from Wednesday!

I’ve been toying with the idea of doing outfit posts again, part of me always feels something of a phony, as I don’t really see myself as all that stylish, but I do enjoy putting fun little looks together, and it was always nice to document those looks previously!

Here is what I wore on Wednesday!

You may all notice that I now have a fringe, and that the rest of my hair is ridiculously long, oh and that the ends are green… basically it’s super different, but I love it like this more than any other hairstyle I have had! It was done by the amazing Rachel at the Leeds branch of Philips Hair Academy, and I can’t recommend her enough!

Onto the outfit! I love this one as it makes me feel like a super cute slime princess!

My dungaree dress and scrunchie were both from the shop I manage in Leeds, Pop Boutique. The dress was £18 and the scrunchie was £3.50, both absolute bargains!

My T-Shirt was from a Topshop sale, about a year ago, but you could always opt for something like this from Etsy seller Killer Condo, and use any of the hundreds of ombre clothing dye tutorials on Youtube for the desired effect! The gist of it is, mix up a tub of dye, dip your garment in from the bottom, and hold it in the dye in sections, moving up the shirt. This will mean the dye is more concentrated at the bottom, as that section will have been in the longest. (okay, so I totally didn’t explain that very well!)

My leggings are trusty H&M. I did used to opt for Primark leggings, as they are dirt cheap. But with a reduced price comes reduced quality. quite often the Primark leggings just looked semi transparent, and that really isn’t the look I am going for.

I must admit, however, that my shoes and socks are from Primark. The shoes were £8, which is a good job because they are the stupidest purchase I have ever made. I don’t know when I ever thought I would be able to keep white canvas shoes clean.

Finally, my jewellery is just stuff that I have had forever. The collar has been around since I was about 15! I know for a fact that these collars can be bought in any good heavy metal/goth type shops for about a fiver. My long necklace just has a simple fake gem on it (which I’ve just realised you can’t see!), and I found this similar one from Etsy seller Hanging By A Thread, for just over £16!

Thanks for checking out my outfit post! I’ll post more from now on, and if you have any questions for me, feel free to ask in the comments below!

Style Swoon! Spotted Shopping – Jo and Ayse

So a few days ago I was lucky enough to spot TWO lovely ladies whose styles I absolutely ADORED, they came into the shop I manage, one straight after the other!

The cool kids know where to shop…

Here’s Jo!

Jo was actually putting some gig posters up in the fitting rooms downstairs. I totally fell in love with her hat, which is from Mishka (probably something to do with my obsession for eyeballs!), her 80’s tee and camo jacket is the perfect grungy look (I wish I could pull it off!) and the addition of cute frilly socks is the icing on the cake!

Meet Ayse!

Ayse was just browsing, but I interrupted her to ask if she minded me taking her picture. I especially admired her amazing hair! The cute collar and crew combo is a firm favourite of mine, and the big bow really ties everything together. Keeping the pants neutral means the focus is on her key pieces, the jumper and studded collar.. and of course, her amazing hair!

 

If you know of anyone whose style I would swoon over, please let me know in the comments!
