Fashion, Popular Culture & Entertainment

Recently having my own graduation ball, I found that searching for the perfect dress was hard work. So I decided to write about a few of my favourites showing what I thought were affordable and easy to purchase as a high-street buy. I wanted to gather a collection of what could be for the specific occasions that are similar such as prom/college/graduation etc.

Here is my top five:

1. // Blush Hour Tulle Dress 

 Nasty Gal //

// £137

Presented in the most mad blush, this dress can separate as a light pink bodice with a skirt as an attachment. The bodice features a sweetheart neckline and the skirt is made in floor length tulle. Perfect for prom.

2. // Ariana Grande Cutout Body Maxi Dress

Lipsy //

// £68.00

This evening wear gown is my ultimate favourite, also the one I wore to my graduation. Cutout design with a rushing detail on the waist, team up with a pair of silver high heels and clutch bag for a classic red carpet look.

Zara’s limited edition, plunges from the neckline with a glittered tint to glam up the simple style of a maxi dress. Cut out back with detailed strap-lines.

4. // Pleated Flutter Sleeve Maxi Dress

ASOS //

// £75.00

This lined body is pleated chiffon on the sleeves with a plunge neckline, open back with strap detail, nude colour is so in for this season. Grab while you can.

5. // Premium Leaf Embellished Mini Dress Blue

Misguided //

// £95.00

Embellished detailing on this dress is something I’m crushing on at the minute. Nude mesh finish and mini dress for underneath works amazingly well together, also with a discreet zip to the side for a comfortable finish. Wear with nude heels to keep those eyes on the dress.

Hope this helps with ideas if you have a certain occasion cropping up soon! Let me know in the comments what your favourites are this season, or what your favourite is from my top picks.

Fashion: Top 5: Faux Fur v Suede

Fashion, Popular Culture & Entertainment

Deadlines have been looming, copious amounts of nights in with caffeine have happened, resulting in me neglecting my poor blog and you readers.

I’ve had a lot on my plate recently, being in my third and final year definitely sucks. So I decided whilst I have the time through my Christmas break I’d show you the most incredible jackets that have hit the highstreet just in time for that perfect gift, go on treat yourself.

Here are my top five Faux Fur v Suede winter warmers:

Leopard Faux Fur Coat //

// Was £89.99 Now £59.99

 If you want to push the limits this winter a leopard print faux fur fabric with inner lining teamed with dreamy black suede ankle boots might just be the trick. Long sleeved with two sided pockets is a deal breaker, and it’s in the sale what more can you ask for?

Reclaimed Vintage Oversized Real Suede Jacket with Belt Detail //

// £165

This gorgeous reclaimed vintage masterpiece is a definite one off, oversized fit with soft touch suede, functional pockets and an asymmetric zip and adjustable pin buckle belt, this jacket would complete the perfect casual day/night look.

Jakke Charlie Wine Coat // 

// Was £99 Now £70

A soft faux fur with a hidden button on the front, completed with two front pockets at the hips for a perfect finishing touch. Faux fur just seems to be the winner for me this year and the colour of a red berry wine sums up Christmas in a jacket. 

Short Coat //

// £39.99

H&M

If a simple look is what you want why not try this camel suede short coat, 3/4 length sleeves lined with no buttons or side pockets. 70s vibes all round.

Milky Way Coat By Unreal Fur //

// £245

If you are still stuck in festival mode and want to rock the edgey look, this faux fur panel may be the one for you. Pair up with a fedora and black skinnies.

What have you been loving this month? And will you buying any of these top 5 jackets for christmas? Let me know in the comments box.

FASHION: TOP 5: BACK TO SCHOOL MUST HAVES

Fashion

Hopefully this top 5 fashion ‘must haves’ will help you prep for another fresh start either that be a new city, a new year or a new school, getting back on the education wagon is incredibly important and what’s better than a new wardrobe to start with? Turn heads and make those first impressions right.

I’ve been absolutely loving Topshop’s collection recently and it seems to be getting more fabulous each week, the sixties and seventies fashion ‘inspo’ are my favs and nothing screams smart to me more than a pair of cigarette trousers with brogues or even a stripy funnel neck with a pair of tights and dungarees.

So here’s what my top 5 picks are for that first term:

// Topshop

Inverness Checked Wool Pinafore Dress //

// £185

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 19.55.32

‘As if’… Embed a ‘Clueless’ classic Cher look. Tartan will always be an autumnal look and with a square clean, yet sharp silhouette and a hidden zip at the back, you are well on your way.

//Topshop

Suede Western Jacket //

// £135

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 19.55.59

The 70’s has made a comeback I couldn’t help but squeeze a bit of suede into my top picks. A classic front style with zipped trims to the sleeves and patch pockets, this would team up perfectly with a cosy black turtle neck and black skinnies.

// Topshop

Daisy Print Cigarette Trousers //

// £39

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 19.56.12

Think practical yet chic, these daisy print cigarette trousers are a gem to create that smart look, cut with a flattering tapered leg and an ankle grazer in length, you can’t go wrong. Oh and they’ve got side pockets, what more could a girl want.

// Topshop

PETITE Bright Floral Tunic //

// £32

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 19.53.58

Okay, this is my favourite from the list. Who said floral is dead in Autumn? This retro print will definitely make you stand out from the crowd.

// Topshop

Striped Funnel Neck Top //

// £18

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 19.56.28

If you want to create a slimming look nothing is better than stripes paired up with black dungarees. This soft knit jersey style is ultra fitted to fabricate the most perfect silhouette.

What have you been loving this month and what will you be wearing for ‘back to school’ wear? Let me know in the comments.
