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!

I Wore This! London Adventure 21/01/13

Image

Posing in my room at the wonderful Hoxton Hotel!

Me and boyfriend like to take a trip down to London roughly once a month, it’s a great way for us to spend time together as he works super hard! 

I like to take the opportunity to dress up a little and this time I wore this amazing vintage dress from Pop Boutique. Underneath it I had about a million layers of thermal t-shirts, tights and leggings! My boots are also vintage but sadly died a death in the snow! (If anyone know where I can get some exactly like it please let me know!!)

My necklace is by Tatty Devine and was bought on another London trip from their Covent Garden shop!

I wore my new green Illamasqua eyeshadows and some bright red Illamasqua lippy! (I LOVE Illamasqua)

I had to wrap up warm today people, it’s COLD out.. in case you didn’t notice! I wore my cute red vintage dress from Pop over a long sleeve bodycon dress, high waisted black jeans and some super comfy vintage boots! 

The glasses you see in this picture are my new ones from Spex in the City! Boyfriend bought me them for Christmas! They are by a company called Jensen and were limited edition. I’ll be doing a post on my love of specs soon so keep reading!

I’ve decided to have a look on the internets to see if I can find similar items to my outfit pieces, as I feel bad when everything is vintage!

Pop Boutique made a pretty sweet dress for their own line which looks pretty similar to the vintage one I wore today! Take a peek..

Office do these cute knee highs that have a slight 60’s go-go vibe!

Buy them here! They’re in the sale for £30!!

 

I’ll leave it at that for tonight! Tomorrow I’ll be trawling Etsy for my pick of the most recent Cute, so it’s adieu until then!
