Fatshion Faceoff: Boots

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

Hello lovelies,

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 Mouna, and she chose boots.

I don’t know if my boots count as cheating, since I decided to wear ankle boots. I got these from Avenue when I went to New York in March, they were on sale for like $15, so obviously I had to get them! And this coat then.. OH MY GOOOOOD. My flatmate found this gem from a thrift store… Genuine leather Anna Scholz White Label coat. FOR £35! I just love finds like that, and I love my flatmate for always looking for things for me too <3!

Ankle boots: Avenue (similar at Simply Be) | Coat: 3, Anna Scholz – thrifted (similar shape but woolen at Marisota, PU sleeved coat at Simply Be) | Dress: 24, Matalan (similar at ASOS, similar at AX Paris) | Belt: XL, Dorothy Perkins (similar at One Stop Plus) | Headband: Accessorize (similar at Forever 21) | Tights: We Love Colors via the amazing Caroline <3 | Clutch: Accessorize (similar at New Look) | Glasses: LensWay (similar at Select Specs)

I seriously love this coat and I can’t believe my luck. Anna’s designs are amazing, but sadly way out of my reach because of the prices.. so thankfully some weird person (because who would want to get rid of this?!?) had given this to charity shop. Anyway, this should be about BOOTS.. sorry, haha. Click ahead to check out my fabulous ladies and see what kind of boots they are wearing.

OOTD: Back to work

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

Went back to work yesterday, and I need a holiday already. Our room has the worst desks, and my shoulder started aching again :(. They’re supposed to bring us new ones in mid-April.. That can’t come soon enough!! But otherwise it was nice to be at work, my colleagues are lovely :)!

Ok, to the outfit then. I went to some shops on Sunday (cos apparently I didn’t shop enough in NYC..) and I picked up these crazy leggings in New Look for £6! The biggest surprise is that they’re 18 in regular sizes, but the waist bit is very roomy. I have never had any pants/leggings/tights like these, so wearing them was definitely out of my comfort zone. In the end I liked them a lot, and like my flatmate said, somehow they looked more like pants than leggings.

Cape: 1, Ann Harvey (similar) | Scarf: Lindex (similar) | Bag: Gap (similar)

Top: 30/32, Avenue (similar) | Lacy vest: 16/18, Primark (similar) | Leggings: 18, New Look | Shoes: 7, Primark – thrifted (similar)

Glasses: LensWay | Earrings: Gemstone Orchid

I’m happy that blogging has encouraged me to try different things, and I actually put some of my old (pre-blogging) fave dresses to a pile that’s going to charity. I don’t feel that they’re “me” anymore, they’re way too safe. Yay for change!

Hope you’re wearing something out of your comfort zone every once in a while too, you might end up liking it :)!


Fatshion Faceoff: Leopard skirt

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

I’m writing this post in a Starbucks near our hotel in NYC. The pics were taken in London though.. since I thought I would have time to write this before this. My last few days in London were completely busy mess, so I didn’t have the time. So I had to take my laptop with me and schedule the post for Wednesday. Had to do this cos I’m SO EXCITED about Fatshion Faceoff this week. We have three new girls in our group, each one presenting different continent and have their own amazing styles. Dani of DIY Fatshion and I are very, very happy about them wanting to be a part of this challenge.. so yes, huge excitement this week :)!

This week’s item was chosen by Dani, and she chose… A leopard skirt! I bought one from New Look sale (it actually was in the same package than last week’s FF item, haha), and I have been wondering how to wear it. I added the oversized top that I bought from Avenue on my last NYC trip in November, crazy owl-earrings I got from, a hat from New Look and awesome red lippy. The earrings are completely out of my comfort zone, but this is exactly what Dani and I wanted to start Fatsion Faceoff for, to try different stuff and push our comfort zones!

I like this look myself, and I wore it to work on Friday and got compliments.. especially for the earrings.. the things I was unsure about the most :D! The skirt is lovely, but actually I feel it’s too big for me :(. I love those tight bodycons, dunno why, and this skirt isn’t tight enough. It might shrink in the wash though.. first time I hope that it will happen :D

Skirt: 26, New Look Inspire | Top: 30/32, Avenue (similar) | Vest: 16, Primark (similar) | Leggings: 16/18, Primark | Shoes: 7, Primark – thrifted (similar) | Earrings: | Hat: New Look

So, that was my Fatshion Faceoff outfit for this week. Now go check out how the other FF girls styled their leopard skirts… I know I will go!
