Cashmere Camaro

Sweater by the Textile Rebels on ASOS // Dress underneath from Missguided // Boots are See By Chloe from Farfetch // Chanel J12 Watch 

I've been dying to wear this sweater since I ordered a few things from ASOS a few weeks ago and as Nia, (@NiaSays1) Fran (@Theonlymisslove) & I decided to go out for drinks to one of our all time favourite places called Momo's, I finally had somewhere to wear it and a chance to dress it up a little whilst keeping it caj/smart and appropriate for cocktails with friends.

I absolutely love the sweater firstly because it has a Camaro SS on it!! But it's also really warm as it's a cashmere and wool blend and the silk panel on the front looks really nice against the grey. The sky on the silk panel also has a city skyline in it which is subtle but cooooooool!

I paired it with this super duper afforadble dress that is a staple piece in my wardrobe and has been since I got it from and not only does it look fab on it's own because it's really simple, but it's also great to layer under things because the skirt section of the dress is so nice.

I wore my fave 'caj/smart' booties from See by Chloe that I got off on sale and I paired it with, YES you guessed it... My All Saints leather jacket! Haha.

Got an exciting week ahead, lots of fun stuff to vlog and on thursday I'm off to Amsterdam for a few days with Fran and my little bro, SO CHUFFED! What are you guys upto this week? xo

The Knit Pencil skirt

Sweater & shoes from Topshop // Skirt from Zara // Leather jacket from All Saints // Hermes Kelly bag 

Firstly, apologies for the slightly washed out photos, my camera was on a funny setting and I failed to notice... DOH! Anyhoooooo...

Maxi skirts & dresses only recently became something I deemed winter appropriate as I just never really thought about how versatile they could be and how they could be styled with items that would add warmth, so why not wear them in the winter?

Well anyway, I don't really have any real 'winter' skirts as most of mine are either really girly, summery or have a big slit down the side which doesn't make it ideal to conquer the cold (even with tights it's a pain as the skirt can stick to the tights) so when I was in Westfield a few days ago I came across this particular soft grey maxi skirt whilst cheekily wondering around Zara and it was a mere £19.99 from their Trafaluc line which to me is more than reasonable and it falls just in between being fitted and loose so it works with tights underneath too. CHA-CHING. I had to have it, so I bought it and I am so glad I did because it is incredibly comfortable and surprisingly warm, all round fab purchase ey!!

I paired it with a relatively newly purchased faveee cropped jumper of mine from Topshop that I didn't notice is from their 'Petite' section (OOPS) but hey it still fits and it's this lovely pastel pink. I wore my All Saints leather jacket (again) with these comfy 90's chunky heeled trainers/boots, also from Topshop! What are you guys loving wearing this winter? ✌ xo

Off the Shoulder

Top from ASOS // Camo trousers from Zara // Hermes belt // Isabel Marant sneaker wedges 

I have been wanting to get my hands on one of these 90's inspired off the shoulder tops for a while now so when I noticed that they were being sold on ASOS & there were some other goodies I wanted to get, I decided to pop it in ye olde basket and get it - and I'm glad I did!

I wore it recently with my fave (and only) pair of camouflage cargo pants that I purchased a while ago from Zara which are unfortunately a teensy bit too big and are in need of a belt so I went with my trusty Hermes belt which happens to be one of like 2 belt I own that aren't waist belts! I also wore my most prized sneaker wedges, my white perforated Marant's with my quilted All Saints leather jacket which isn't pictured above but can be seen in some other recent 'What I wore' posts from yours truly :) It wasn't as cold in the photos as it is at the moment... brrrrr! Hope you're all well ✌ xo

The Chequered Coat

Coat: Autograph by Marks & Spencer

Winter is upon us here in London which means it's time to whip out our coats from storage or invest in a new winter coat to keep us cozy through these chilly few months (or most of the year if you live in England).

I had to pop into M&S to buy some thermals for Fabio & my brother and I came across this gorgeous white and black chequered coat and I couldn't resist! It's like no other coat I own in that firstly it's white and that is a mahoosive benefit for me as I own three small dogs, two of which happen to be white and shed like it's in fashion so having a coat that won't get covered in dog hair (or at least not obviously as it's white) so I'm very pleased! It's also extremely versatile which I'm not sure if you noticed but I like versatile items of clothing it seems! :P

It also has a zip fastening which I much prefer to button fasterning and it has leather trim along the collar as well as being made out of Italian fabric... how fancy eh! Anyhoo, I hope you're all well :) ✌ xo

Time for a change

Jacket from River Island / Leather high waisted trousers and white tank top from Topshop / Wedges by Ann Demeulemeester / Yankees Baseball Jersey from Urban Outfitters / Chain from See Jewelry / Hermes Kelly Bag 

After a very long time (like 7 years!) of not having dyed my hair with the intention to grow it long and strong, I decided that my hair is at a length I am happy with and is in good enough condition for me to lighten it a tad!

I have wanted to do something different to my hair for a while now because let's face it, having long brown hair can be kind of boring and loads of cool styles and colours have come and gone like Ombre & dip dye etc... so I did some research as I didn't wanna go for ombre and I found Balayage thanks to Nia who suggested I have a look at what it looks like.

So, this past friday I popped into the Andrew Barton salon in Covent Garden where one of my bestest friends Marlon is a resident hair stylist and he treated me to ammonia free bleach & tint and we put some caramel strands through my hair to give it a bit of body and 'depth', and I really love it! It's a nice change for winter as opposed to going lighter for the summer and I'm really chuffed with the outcome :) Apologies for the not so clear photos but if you'd like to see my hair a little better then stay tuned as I'll be uploading a 'Get ready with me' video that I filmed post-dying my hair.

I decided to wear my new FAVE baseball jersey from Urban Outfitters with Topshop's faux leather version of the American Apparel disco pants and my comfiest wedges that I just can't get enough of ^.^

Well, that's it for today guys but I wanted to let you know about a giveaway I'm hosting on my Youtube Channel as a thank you to those of you who watch my videos and are subscribed to my channel as I am less than 100 subbies away from ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND! EEK! So if you find yourself interested in entering my giveaway in the hopes of winning a Selfridges goodie box, then have a peep at my video below for the rules and get entering as there is only a week left!! GOOD LUCK :D xo

Hello Yellow

Top by Kenzo / Trousers from Topshop / Chanel ballet flats / Jacket from River Island / Chain from See Jewelry  

Another day, another pair of trousers that I adore! I popped into topshop a few weeks ago in search of some trousers to wear through the cold months to follow as I appear to only own black jeans, blue jeans or some eccentric patterned palazzo pants that are really not winter friendly - so I don't know if you guys have noticed but topshop do this thing where they layer clothes on the same rail. What I mean is when new stock comes in they just pop it in front of their older stock and so what looks like a full rail of their new trousers/tops/etc actually has 4 or 5 different colours, patterns and styles hidden behind them! SO when I was digging through the rails of trousers I came across these babies! I instantly adored them as their so bright but are also versatile and the texture is slightly thick so they're on the warmer side :) I'm a size 8 and they only had a 10 so I got them because I refused to leave the store without them and although they are a little looser fitting and I believe they're meant to sit on the waist a little higher, I still love 'em!

Fab & I found ourselves wondering through Westfield the other day to kill time whilst waiting to go to the movies and we popped into River Island where I found the awesome "Acne'esque" faux shearling jacket I'm pictured wearing above and the sneaky bugger wondered off whilst I was browsing and paid for it! Haha he knows I would of wrestled him for it otherwise... what a cutie patootie eh! Hope you're all well! ✌ xo

Quilted Leather

Trousers & shoes from Topshop / T by Alexander Wang polo neck / Chanel classic jumbo bag / All Saint leather jacket

Aloha! I popped to Camden with Louka (@Thatcrazykidpea) last saturday after I attended a graduates job fair with her and this is what I wore! I've been really into fitted printed trousers - they're super duper versatile and are really comfy & in my opinion are going to be a type of trouser I'll probably be wearing a lot of this winter based on how many different pairs I've accumulated!

I also got my ickle paws on this AMAZING T by Alexander Wang turtle/polo neck sweater from and I am absa-fricking-lutely adoring it and know I am also going to be wearing the shabang out of it in through the winter. What are your winter staples? Also check out my Camden vlog below!  xo

Portabello Road

Dress by Maison Martin Margiela / Agyness Deyn for Doc Marten boots / Alexander McQueen Scarf / Chanel bag  & sunnies

Last Saturday Nia & I popped to Portabello market in Ladbroke Grove here in London to have a looksie through the market which is always fun (but sooo crowded on a saturday) and I wanted to get a few bits & bobs for our place which is currently being renovated.

I bagged a new mirror for our bedroom, which has been long overdue as the one we have in there at the moment is broken at the bottom and wrestling on a shard lol not ideal. I got this really loves white wood baroque framed mirror to replace it for a mere £125! Bargain if you ask me. I also got a few other goodies which I will be featuring in an upcoming haul video so keep an eye out for that.

I got the chance to wear my new Margiela dress that I got recently from TK Maxx that I am obsessed with, its so comfortable and although it looks really odd off as it's cut a funny way, it sits amazingly and is made of a lovely soft material that is pretty warm and ideal for colder days here in London.

I wore my fave docs by Agy Deyn and some tights as it's gotten pretty chilly, and I've been living in these Chanel sunglasses my mum gave me years ago for christmas. If you care to see the vlog of our antics on 'bello road then have a watch of my vlog down below! Much lovee ✌ xo

The Perfect Wedge

Fabio had a night off from work recently so we decided to go to Westfield to a restaurant we go to now and again called Meat & wine co and if you are a meat eater (which I am not but my husband is) then you'll enjoy their steaks. It's a little pricy but the food is tasty and the cocktails are nice - although I will say if your a pescetarian like me or a vegetarian/vegan then the options are very minimal.

I wore a recent purchase from Zara which is this black knit long sleeved midi dress and you unfortunately can't tell in the photographs but there are hidden little specs of glitter in the dress which is really subtle but adds a cute touch. I paired it with my trusty leather H&M gilet which you'll be seeing a little less of now that the weather has turned to sh*t and its cooooold! I wore it with my smallest Alma Vernis bag in a pearly off white and my new faaaaavourite wedges from Ann Demeulemeester, that have to be the comfiest wedges since my Aldo wedges which are extremely similar passed away. (RIP)

These babies are far from the same price bracket as my Aldo wedges were but they are totes mahotes worth it if you care for my opinion as they are beyond comfortable, a great versatile height of 4 1/2 inches which makes the the perfect day to night shoes and I can shop in them! WOOP! I also massively adore the square wedge :D haha aaaanyway...

 Dress from Zara 
Leather gilet from H&M

I hope you're all fantabulous! ✌ xo

Bad a$$ boots

Topshop Tee / H&M Gilet / Mango jeans / Charlotte Olympia boots / Hermes Constance bag

Aloha! The other night my brother, Nia, Fabio & I all decided to go to Benihana in Chelsea for dinner... If you're wondering what Benihana is, it's a Hibachi restaurant which basically means the food is cooked then & there infront of you, on your table by a Hibachi chef. The food is out of this world at about £35 each, you get A LOT of food.

Anyhoo, I decided to wear my new Charlotte Olympia boots as I had yet to break them in and they are the kind of thing I'd like to pair with some jeans and a tee to give it a pop of fun, so I did just that! They are really comfy and could be worn out dancing too, just need to find the perfect LBD! ✌ xo

Saturday daydreaming

Shirt from Romwe 
Jeans from Zara
 See by Chloe boots 
Hermes Kelly bag 
  Leather jacket by Antonio Berardi

Hey homies! This edition of 'what I wore' dates back to this past Saturday which was pretty chilled during the day, as are most day really unless I'm working or in town but in the evening Nia & I made plans to have dinner & drinks at the glamorous TGI fridays as it's our guilty pleasure now and again. Fabio unfortunately couldn't make it as he had to work but we were joined by my little bro Leo and my friend Fran which was really nice as I don't think we've ever eaten out just the four of us... anyway the food was yummy which isn't always the case haha (that's another story).

After a very satisfying meal, my brother went home and Fran, Nia & I decided to go clubbing in our favourite again not so glamorous spot once in a while known as Penthouse in Leicester Square. We were opting for DSTRKT but the queue was mahoosive and as we were dressed a little more on the casual side, we wanted somewhere to go where we weren't too fussed about how we looked :P how did you guys spend your weekend? Hope you had a good'n! xo

Pretty in Pink

Sweater by Topshop Petite / Skirt from BCBG Maxazria / Boots from See By Chloe / Chanel Bag 

I popped into town today to get some more goodies to pop into the boxes that I will be giving away via my Youtube channel as a big thank you for (almost) 100,000 subscribers and it happened to be pretty warm out considering it's the end of September but hey, no complaints here!

I got a chance to finally break in my new See by Chloe boots that I talked about a few blog posts ago and yes, I ended up with blisters haha but it was predicted! And hey, I had to break 'em in so...

I also got to wear this new blush pink crop sweater from Topshop that is such a lovely colour, especially against some black & white and my favourite fedora that I nabbed at Harrods in Heathrow Terminal 5 haha as you do. We ended the day with some bubble tea and a hefty shop at the heaven that is Whole foods market ^.^ What's keeping you guys busy? Hope you're well! xo

Sequin collar & all

Top from ASOS / Faux Leather trousers from Topshop / Chanel flats & bag /
Skull ring from Adhoc / Eye ring from Bergdorfs NYC / Spike ring from Intermix / Cross ring from Greece

It seems my days consist mostly of errand running haha glamorous, right? Off to do what I had to do and I chose to wore this really cute top that my mom recently gifted to me from ASOS and my new topshop faux leather trousers which I absolutely LOVE. For £32, they fit really well and are high waisted so double whammy - and they don't look faux - triple whammy!

I also took a snap of my favourite rings up close which a lot of you may have already seen a hell of a lot of if you watch my youtube videos haha I've bought them all seperately over the years and around the world and they've made this mini stackable collection that I never cease to wear as it just works! And I really like how they all kind of tie in with each other :) Hope you guys are all well! xo

Maxi Rediscovered

Knit maxi from Topshop a long time ago / Alexander McQueen Scarf / H&M leather gilet / Chanel bag & shoes

Aloha! A few days ago I wore this outfit out pick up my little bro from the airport and I then popped into Hammersmith to check out the latest stock in my favourite TK Maxx store and I managed to bag an amazingly warm winter coat, a pair of salmon/nude cigarette trousers from pucci with a black stripe down either side of the leg - so amazing! And I also got a Margiela shirt dress contraption which is really soft and nice for winter :P

Anyhoo, I wore this knit maxi dress that I've had for a few years and was actually selling in the garage sale that I had a few years ago but rediscovered and thought it was pretty perfect for the winter time haha I paired it with this gorgeous camo mcqueen scarf my sister got me for christmas last year and my new fave ballet flats from Chanel. Not much of a crazy day so comfy and casual was the way! Hope you guys are all fab! Am I the only one not that excited about autmun/winter? xo

Mad Metallic

Topshop Tank / H&M Trousers / Zara Blazer / Chanel Bag & loafers / ASOS Necklace

On Tuesday I didn't do much in the daytime apart from play GTA with Louka, but in the evening we popped to Westfield with Fabio after work and we did some shopping and then we went to see Insidous 2 in the cinema which I have to say I actually quite enjoyed! I won't get too much into the story, but I think like a lot of horror movies nowadays, it doesn't really make any sense but it's jumpy so hey, it's entertaining. I wanted to wear something comfy so I could not only sit comfortable which may I add I didn't I was so on edge and had pins and needles in my ass cheeks from sitting in such a rigid position but so that I could also indulge in cinema food haha nachos and popcorn baby! Can't forget the blue slushy that is soooo good but SO bad for you clearly as it is in fact the same colour as my handbag in the photos above! Oh dear. Have you guys seen insidious 2? Thoughts?

I wore my all time fave loafers and a really fun bag I got about 4 years ago from Harrods with my mum and I also remember there was a hot pink metallic one too! Cray. Glad I went with blue - It's a pop of colour to any white/grey/black outfit and I have recently rediscovered it in my wardrobe and I love it!

OOH! I also wanted to mention that I am selling everything that was for sale in our garage sale that we hosted a year ago, as well as some other goodies from my closet on my Depop account! Depop? What is that, you say? Well, it's this really cool app now available in the app store where you can sell your clothes via paypal in an instagram-like format - My username is FashionFilth - make sure you follow me to stay up to date on what I'm selling :)  Hope you're all dandy! xo

Leather Fauxveralls

Top by Brandy Melville / Fauxveralls by Topshop / Heels by Vince / Bag by Chanel / Knit Bomber by Missoni

 Hello! Woop Woop to the weekend being here as I spent my saturday evening having dinner and cocktails accompanied by Shisha with my girlies at one of our fave spots in London off Regent street called Momo's.

I'd been lusting over some leather overall/dungarees or 'fauxveralls' as I like to call them as the leather is in fact faux, and when I saw Erika Bowes from found a pair in Topshop I naturally went online and ordered them haha and I have to say I absofuckinglutely adore them! They fit wonderfully and are really comfortable! You guys are going to be seeing a lot more of them this winter hehe :P Below is a pic of them from the Topshop Website so you can see a little better :)

I paired the look with one of my fave knitted crop from Brandy Melville in Amsterdam and my favourite strappy heels from Vince. It's getting kind of nippy here in London and I'm finally getting to wear my Missoni knitted bomber jacket from TK Maxx, yay! I wanted to add a pop of colour to this outfit so I decided to use my metallic blue Chanel bag that I've had for a few years now but love more and more every time I get to use it. Anyhooo, I hope you had/are having a bomb weekend! xo

Rainy day errands

Topshop tee / Zara trousers & Blazer / H&M Gilet / Vintage Chanel scarf / Agy Deyn for Doc Marten boots / Hermes Belt

Helloo! Yesterday was yet another rainy day here in London and I'm guessing it's only just the beginning, but a little rain isn't enough to put my errands on hold so off I went with my trusty docs on my feet to conquer all puddles. I also added the vintage scarf my grandma gave me for a bit of colour, something about khaki and burgundy that I love! I also decided to leave my handbag at home as it was just easier to have nothing to carry. Not much of an eventful day apart from that as the weather really doesn't leave room to get up to much outside so I had as cosy dinner with some friends at home :) Hopefully I'll have more interesting things to share with future outfit posts! But in the meantime, I hope you guys are liking these posts and as always, that you're all well!  xo

Get your knits out!

Sweater from ShopWasteland / Jeans from Mango / Sneaker wedges by Isabel Marant / Fluffy cardigan & Leather gilet both from H&M / Chanel Classic flap bag in Large

Aloha! Another outfit post today, and it seems that time to get your knitwear out of the back of your wardrobe has come about again! So, naturally I did just that as I would prefer not to freeze my ass off haha an it looked a little something like what you see above! Love the daisy sweater, and pretty much anything with daisies on it (Because I have a dog named Daisy lol) and it also happens to be extremely soft :) I paired it with some comfy jeans and my favourite sneaker wedges! My fluffy cardi from H&M added some extra warmth and off out I went to run some errands, walk the dogs - living dangerously really. Hope you're all well! xo
