Halloween Idea

Thursday, 29 October 2015

Halloween is upon us everyone.

And I can truly say that I love this holiday, as it's an excuse for fancy dress. I'm currently in my mid twenties, so the opportunities for fancy dress are few and far between. So you forget how silly and fun it can be to get stuck in.

Something I don't enjoy is spending lots and lots of money on one costume that will only been worn once and then put in the cupboard to be forgotten about.


If you are going to any fancy dress events or parties, have a look in your wardrobe and see what you have. You never know where inspiration may strike!

I found this old purple suit that I bought a few years ago, which reminded me of the late Heath Ledger's portrayal of the joker (The Dark Knight is a fabulous film, btw!).

All I needed was a green tie (sourced on eBay for £1) and some face paint (Pound shop). Then you just have to throw all the elements together. 

And ta-daaa!

I have a few other halloween events to go to and just through looking at what I already have, I'm able to create some amazing costumes and spend hardly a penny.

Wherever you end up this Halloween.. Have fun!

Stepping into a/w.

Tuesday, 20 October 2015
High street.

Oh, the quest for the perfect a/w boot. 
It's time to pack away those sandals girls, but don't be sad as the boots currently on the market are a delight. The choice is incredible and I'm finding it hard to choose just one!
So i've put together a selection of a few of my favourite current pieces..

The high street is where you can find a myriad of different styles and prints for affordable prices.  Patent, croc, lace-up, leopard, snake, fringing and more, it's all there on the high street.  

Now, when I'm going for super high quality, I look nothing further than Jones Bookmaker. 
Slightly pricier than a few of the high street pieces, but these are more of an investment and will last you longer than a season.
If you're looking for something classic, something that will suit any outfit and something that will last   you for years to come.. Well, then look no further.

You may also notice that I am a sucker for their suede pieces. So dreamy!

Have you bought your a/w boots yet?
