70's vintage

Coat- Vintage
Turtle neck - Thrifted 
Boots- Topshop 


So I've decided to go for a more vintage vibe with this look today. I stumbled across this really cool 70s style long leather coat at this vintage fair in Spitalfields market. As soon as I tried it on I knew I had to have it. And the fact that it was brought from NewYork made me love it even more. It fits like a glove and adds a bit of class and sophistication to any outfit.
As my top and bottoms were't  that cohesive I decided to tie the whole outfit together with my red heeled Topshop boots.

Rainbow winter

 Who's says you have to look like a fashion nun during winter. Theres nothing wrong with wearing black and white every once in awhile, but its nice to add a little colour in your life. Especially when I'm feeling the winter blues. Something like a statement jacket or coat can make all the difference to your look. When I stumbled across this one it instantly caught my eye. It looked so unique nothing I've ever seen before, there was no way I could leave it behind.


Coat- selling one on my Depop 

Turtle Neck- Topshop

Skirt- Thrifted- Miss Selfridge

Boots- River Island

Rings/Copper age

Ive really been loving theses rings that I purchased recently. I stumbled across them in a little market in Kingston. There so beautifully crafted with such detailing I just couldn't leave them behind.  Each handmade with copper, there designed to fit every sized finger with its adjustable ring band. Which is ideal for me as I sadly inherited large knuckles; (*thanks mum) and never can seem to find rings that fit. Their also reasonably priced at £5 a piece, I think there a great buy as gifts or for oneself without breaking the bank.
I've always liked rings but just ended up buying  the cheap silver plated rings from various retail stores that always made my fingers go green after a while. But with theses, I can ensure that will never happen again. I've had them a little over a month now and wear them on a daily basis with no worry of green fingers.  If you live in the London area you can find Copper Age in Camden where they sell not only rings but all sorts of different jewellery from bracelets, bangles, earrings and necklaces too.

Denim and more denim

Denim shirt - Calvin Klein

You can't go wrong with bit of double denim in your life every once on awhile. I think its a nice way to look put together without really trying. I've just thrown on my Calvin Klein denim shirt and a pair of River Island skinnies. And to add bit of hight and sophistication to the look I'm wearing theres red heeled leather boots from Topshop, which I'm totally in love with.

Emerald Green

 Hey guys, it been a long time since my last post. 

I've had a lot going on recently, so I'm off to uni now and since were transitioning into autumn and winter I've been out and about shopping. while shopping I stumbled across this beautiful emerald green indian kurta shirt from the mens section in the charity shop. I thought the colour was gorgeous and would look lovely against my skin tone. It was only £1 can you believe it. Its a really cool twist on a shirt dress. As it was from the mens section it was really big, so all I did was add a belt to cinch in my waist and finish the look.
For my shoes I decided to style my new boots from River Island which I love. There so classic and give a outfit such a polished look. Defiantly gonna be one of my shoe favs for the coming months.

Turtle neck top - Ebay
Button down skirt - Calvin Klein/ Charity shop
Boots - Deichmann  

Hey guys 

long time no post, anyway I'm gonna try be as frequent with my post as possible.
So I've had this Gap coat since the beginning of the year and only ever wore it once. I have to admit i was more tempted to buy it because it was only £2, I couldn't resist. i was tired of seeing it just sitting there in my wardrobe so I decided to re vamp it. I've been loving the whole 70s shearling coat trend that I've been seeing everywhere. So I thought why not give it a go myself.  I have a video up on my channel of the transformation, just click the link below.

Retro rebel

Hey guys, long time no post .

Been a very busy theses last couple of months, but coming at ya with another thrifted look. Came across this really cool shoulder pad blazer in traid and just had to get it. It just screams 80s/90s. I really like the colours and pattern of it and how unique it looks. And it really reminds me of something out of the fresh prince of bel-air, that aunt val would wear or something. Definitely a statement piece for anyones wardrobe.

 I wanted to share with you guys another one of my DIYS.
I've been seeing two pieces everywhere this summer so I decided to make one myself.  I recently went on holiday, which meant buying some summer outfits. So to keep the cost down I decided to use the resources I had at home. I stubbled across this dashiki looking dress and thought it would look create as a two piece. I was shocked how much I got out of this one garment. 

What do you guys think ?
