Fatshion Faceoff: Crazy legwear

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Hi lovelies,

Wednesday is here again, and I’m sure you know it’s Fatshion Faceoff time! If you’re new to the blog, please see here what Fatshion Faceoff is about :). This week’s challenge item was chosen by me and I chose crazy/patterned legwear.

I have wanted to do this item for ages. I have LOADS of crazy leggings that I never seem to wear, and I really wanted to do this post. These are basically the craziest leggings I own, haha, leopard print, flowers, yellow, pink, blue, green, black… They are also sheer. So insane that I LOVE them :D.







Leggings: 20, Primark (awesome leopard and cosmic leggings at New Look Inspire) | Biker jacket: 20, Primark (similar at Simply Be) | Top: 30/32, Avenue (similar at New Look Inspire) | Boots: Primark (similar at Style369) | Scarf: H&M (similar at New Look) | Lippy: MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj

I totally have to start wearing mine more.. they make otherwise simple outfits amazing! Have you got crazy leggings or tights?

Now let’s go see what kind of crazy or patterned legwear the other FF ladies are wearing, I’m sure they look fabulous as always! …And I wonder if Dani is wearing these same ones ;)

OOTD: Proper fashion blogger

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello my lovely readers,

Sorry for the silly name for this outfit.. it all starts with the top bun. It seems to be the hairstyle of choice for ‘proper’ fashion bloggers, and I tried it for the first time ever. I even added this amazing spiked hair comb in it to complete the look ;). I do like it a lot, but I don’t see myself having my hair like this every day. (Ok, the main reason is that I can’t see myself waking up 15 mins earlier to do this in the morning.. yes, I hate mornings.)

I wore this outfit on Thursday, when I went to Clothing at Tesco AW12 event with the lovely Becky and Caroline. (Thanks for sneaking to the side streets with me and snapping these pics Becky <3!) I wanted to wear this Lovedrobe dress (review here), and decided to wear it with a denim jacket to make the look more casual for work.


Denim jacket: 1X, Forever 21+ (PU sleeved jacket at Dorothy Perkins, denim jacket at Simply Be) | Dress: 20, Lovedrobe at One Stop Plus* (similar at New Look Inspire) | Belt: 1, Target – swapped with Dani (similar at One Stop Plus) | Leggings: 20, Primark (similar at ASOS) | Shoes: Primark – thrifted (similar at Evans/Style369) | Hair comb: ASOS | Bag: Primark (similar by Bertie) | Lippy: Maybelline Pink Punch Baby Lips lipbalm- gift from Dani (similar shade lipstick by NARS) | Nail polish: Gold by Giles at New Look (similar shade by Models Own) | Glasses: LensWay (similar)

Double Vision: Metallics

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello lovelies,

Sorry I haven’t been around much in here (or in Twitter for that matter).. work has been completely manic lately, gotta love the Christmas season in advertising, we are all working and working and working. I also have a few events coming up (well one has gone already), and I will post about those on a later time. …OH, and exciting news! I have bought myself a new camera! I’m so happy that I won’t have to rely on my flatmate’s camera anymore, and I can take pics when and where I want. So I hope to bring you more variety in where I take my pics soon :)

Anyway, to the post itself.. after last week’s break it’s time for a Double Vision again. In this challenge my amazing friend Dani and I are choosing a theme, item, movie character.. whatever we come up with basically, and style those our own way and post at the same time, more about the challenge here. I got us both these metallic pleather skirts, and we decided to base the theme around them and other metallics.

I teamed the skirt with sheer Forever 21+ shirt, gorgeous sparkly boots and a layered necklace, and finished with my favourite coral lippy.


Shirt: 2X, Forever 21+ (similar at New Look Inspire) | Skirt: 20, Primark (didn’t find similar, but.. skater skirt at ASOS or sequin skirt at New Look Inspire for skater or sparkly look) | Leggings: 20, Primark (similar at ASOS) | Boots: Evans/Style 369 | Necklace: Forever 21 (similar at ASOS) | Glasses: LensWay (similar at Select Specs) | Lippy: Accessorize, Coral Crush With Love (similar MAC lippy)

Have you ventured the metallics-trend? I do like this shine and sparkle for this Autumn, it makes the darkness of the weather a bit brighter :). Dani is doing this in the sunny Texas though, so let’s go to DIY Fatshion to see what she wore in this challenge!

Fatshion Faceoff: Floral dress

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello my lovely readers,

Once again it’s Wednesday and I’m sure you know it’s Fatshion Faceoff time! If you’re new to the blog, please see here what Fatshion Faceoff is about :). This week’s challenge item was chosen by Mhairi, and she chose a floral dress.

I’ve had this dress for ages (well it feels like ages, but really it’s been like 6 months, haha), and it’s been on the blog already. Dani had the same dress on in the bodycon challenge a few weeks ago and she reminded me of this dress’s existence and I thought it goes well with this Autumn’s trends. I added my new amazing glittery boots and the parka you already saw a few posts ago. I really love this outfit myself, it’s both glam and relaxed at the same time.


Dress: 20, New Look Inspire (similar at Simply Be) | Parka: 24, Clothing at Tesco (similar at ASOS) | Boots: Evans | Bag: Primark (similar by Bertie) | Glasses: LensWay (similar at Select Specs) | Lippy: Natural Collection Moisture Shine in Pink Mallow – available in Boots (similar by MAC – shade Saint Germain)

Do you like wearing floral dresses? I love these darker ones this Autumn <3!

Now let’s go see what kind of dresses the other FF ladies are wearing, I’m sure they look fabulous as always!
