Shut Uuuuuup! I’m going mad for Minnie’s Boutique

23 Oct

The weight loss has meant that I cannot wait to go shopping and buy a ton of new stuff! This week I splashed out on a new trench coat, a faux fur gillet and some riding boots that I love a little bit too much. I’ve been writing some stuff for my university magazine on the topic of changing body shape and who I’m going to be looking up to for style inspiration. And as much as I want to say I’m going to channel the Kate Moss look with fedoras and skinny jeans, there’s a girl inside me shouting to realise my inner Essex.

You heard! I want sparkly dresses, high heels and false tan. I want Paul’s Botique, Minnie’s Boutique and, er, Whoeverelse’s Boutique. I want to wear Lydia’s vintage style for day and then work a one-shoulder jade coloured dress for a night out at Nottingham’s equivilant of Sugar Hut. With Essex Fashion Week coming up, who knows which pieces I’m going to be eyeing up to add to my wardrobe in a few months time. In the mean time, here are my top five picks from Billie and Sam’s Minnie’s Boutique.

Pleated dress, £32.99

Deery Me playsuit, £54

Arabel dress, £300

My Spot blouse, £36

Viva Glam ring, £81


Wanna be my Batman?

26 Jul

With the new Batman flick being filmed just round the corner from me (I sadly didn’t spot the beautiful Ms. Hathaway), I’ve taked an interest to all things, er, batty! Truffle Shuffle, the online shop for retro inspired clothing, stock this cute Batgirl vest top which will be perfect with shorts and sandals for summer sight seeing and jeans and a blazer when it gets a little cooler.

Batgirl vest from Truffle Shuffle comes in at £24.99 and is available in sizes S-XL.

8 Apr

If you haven’t heard of Jarlo then you’re certainly missing out! The brand specialises in edgy, colourful and feminine looks with a rocky edge. The S/S’10 collection is a mix between romantic film stars and super cool rock chicks and the result is something quite spectacular.

Created in 2008 by designer Carly Hallahan, Jarlo will quickly become your new one-stop-shop for fashion. Collections such as “Some Like it Hot” will delight those who love florals just as much as I do and the “Lolita” collection is sure to wow everyone who loves a pretty frill or two.

One of my favourite items from the collection is the Grace dress featured. It’s so multifunctional and can be worn for dates, summer picnics and it’s perfect for summer weddings! Snap yours up now for £60.
