Fatty Vacation

I don't think I've ever mentioned it here on le blog before but I work part-time in Fat Face.
A clothes shop with a difference where the focus is on living life outside the boundaries of 9-5 and embracing the adventures that come your way.
Bearing that in mind, we, as a crew came together before a night out to find out the surprise our manager (and I) had in store for us.
Each crew member was styled in the new high summer lines that had just launched and making use of our oh-so-awesome props and backdrops we had a mini photoshoot in the basement.
Blue-steel on and here were just some of the results!
It was so fun and there are plenty more where that came from!

Entitled 'Fatty Vacation!'

Nailing it!

I found myself drooling at the mouth whilst pouring over this months issue of ELLE UK.
It had nothing to do with the semi-naked, oh-so-fine Mr. Beckham on the from cover either!
Page after page were covetable manicures. Nail art at it's finest.
I love experimenting with different crazy colours and nail trends but for some reason it seemed so much more apparent in this issue that any other previous.
It set me off, lusting (yet again) for some whacky, creative nail art and below are just a few of my favourites.
Now to choose one...

A trend that I am loving more and more is that of STUDS. And from what I can see, those shiny, spiky, pyramidal objects of metal are going to be around for a while.
My first indulgence was back in September or so when I purchased a pair of black suede studded loafers here and I still wear the heck out of them.
Without rocking out like a total 90s heavy metal kid, I like to keep my studs simple and minimal whereby adding texture and an edginess to my generally feminine sense of style.
The quirkiness is in the detail and the creativity inspired by studding is endless...believe it or not I am here studs in hand ready to embellish a trusty denim jacket that's needs revamping!
And yes, I am heavily considering DIYing my converse as demonstrated above!

How do you guys feel about studding? Yay or Nay?

The Girl in the Pink Dress

Chillin' in the graveyard with my two brothers

The big boi on his big day!

Heads up, this post was due exactly a week ago but due to unforeseen technical difficulties, that didn't exactly happen.
But ALAS, an outfit post!
Last weekend marked my little brothers becoming 'an adult member of the Church' by making his confirmation.
A great excuse to dress up and a nice eh...morning for the occasion too.
As with all family occasions as such, photos are a necessity so I snapped a few for le blog.

My dress is Topshop and I absolutely love it! The colour is a popping bubblegum pink and is so comfortable that I am seriously considering purchasing it in this other colour.
I nipped it in at the waist with this belt I have had for years but I love it's vintage look.
The jacket is quite definitely a staple in my summer wardrobe and what's an outfit without a bit of floral eh? Lots of gold accessories and voila!

Hope you like!

Dress - Topshop
Jacket - River Island
Belt - Asos
Shoes - Penneys
