SPOKEN FOR

Thursday, 11 September 2014

Sorry for the delay folks! I've been busy working at the AXParis HQ ( Having a full time job + a blog is crazzzaaay). For those of you that are AXParis Fans stayed tuned for more about the workplace as we've got loads of  events coming soon!


THE LOOK


As a lover of Fashion. I celebrate and champion Independent & up and coming brands.The Fashion Industry isn't easy (from first hand experiences) and I admire anyone who's pursuing their career/dream.

In this outfit post I'm representing Spoken For Garments Ltd. 

A Manchester Based Street Style Brand specializing in cool graphic crop tops, men's tees and metallicwear.




The designer and founder of the company is my good friend
Farah Ajmal.

I'm so proud and I can't wait to see more future pieces!


Check out more of her hot looks via the link below:









I teamed up my SpokenFor Tiger Head Crop with my Fav Cow Vintage
High Waisted Trousers.

Shop the Crop Here and check out Cow Vintage as they have an array of Gorgeous High Waisted Looks!

I accessorized my outfit with a vintage belt,scarf & jewels.

My Vintage scarf nicely complements the crop along with
my belt bringing out the black and gold colour palette whilst
my trousers nicely break it up.

My Green Chain is from the Vintage Village.
Vintage lovers I advise you to get down there!
I bagged some amazing bargains the last time I went.
 It's on every second Sunday of every month throughout the year, from 1.00 am to 4.00 pm at Stockport's Market Hall. 


I can never wear too many earrings and think my 80's bling

finishes off my Street Style Look.

I would advise you to buy vintage earrings from eBay as

they can be quite expensive in Charity & Vintage Shops (I guess I like things cheap & cheerful ;) ).

I hope you've enjoyed the read and look.

Stay Keen ;)

PAC & PLEATED

Friday, 29 August 2014





This look features my Fav Tupac T-shirt ( as you probably know I'm a HUGE fan) & Pleated Skirt.

Like my Makaveli Vintage feature it's a Street Style  Look but it has a more feminine,floaty vibe.



Statement T-shirts are a big part of my style , including in this outfit!
I nearly had a heart attack when I seen this top, the detail is amazing and I LOVE this
picture of Pac.



 I bought this top on eBay but it's originally from Urban Oufitters.


THE LOOK






The other main features of this look are my bold accessories.

My FatzK Headpiece and Fav Statement Indian Earring.

I'm obsessed with big earrings and often have ears like a Christmas Tree ( I have 
9 piercings and boxes full of vintage jewels! :D ).


My Primark  skirt  gives it a Vintage feel.
My Mum kindly purchased me this pleated piece from a charity shop and for a while I genuinely thought it WAS Vintage ( if only you could see my surprise face when I seen the label lol).

My chain vintage belt breaks up the top and skirt and my Solovair Boots finish off the Look.


Hope you like this look..links to the items are below:

Tupac 'Picture Me Rollin' T-Shirt 
(I've linked to similar tops as this piece is limited edition)

Stay Tuned For More!

STONEWASH & STUDS

Saturday, 9 August 2014

So lately I've been in love with jumpsuits. Not only  are they a quick fix to any outfit problem and
comfortable to wear, when you take it back to the 80’S with studded diamante detail and shoulder pads it easily becomes a style statement.

I own quite a few vintage jumpsuits  and a lot of them are from this era.

From bold cotton prints to stone wash embellished denim I love them.

For a more casual look I wear my brown & black erratic check printed jumpsuit

 I bagged this bargain from the The Vintage Clothing Kilo Sale 
all the vintage items are priced by the weight, starts at around £15 per kilo 
(so you get around 4-5 lightweight vintage items for £15!! Bargains !!! ;-)




And a snap of my  tie dye pink jumpsuit embellished with chunky rhinestones
 which I'm obsessed with! This is from Cow Vintage.



THE LOOK

I  also snapped this beauty from COW and I was instantly in love with it!

I think I'm drawn to vintage because it's unique , I love the attention to detail and the boldness.


I teamed up this jumpsuit with my Rare Solovair Croc Boots. 




I bought these from eBay I'm a big fan of sturdy stylish shoe brands such as Timberland, Solovair and Doc Martens. They're long lasting, practical and are also  a fashion statement.


As this style is Limited Edition they are hard to find but I do see them the odd time on eBay.


Check out their website as they have other beautiful styles Solovair.co.uk .


I hope you loved this look, stay tuned for more :) .

MAKAVELI VINTAGE

Saturday, 2 August 2014









MAKAVELI VINTAGE is a Hip hop Vintage Look mixed with a bit of
Grudge and Tie Dye.

You'll find that I'm obsessed with Printed Tees and Bold Vintage Blouses but you'll see more of that later ;).

My style isn't conventional in terms of following trends etc
as I feel that style and fashion should be creative and self expressive.

This Look captures my laid back boyish look,
love for Tupac,bold accessories and detail.

As most of my style is Vintage or Bespoke Some links
are to the items or to similar suggestions :).

Statement Head Piece- is By FatzK

A Talented Fashion & Statement Jewelry Designer.
 (She is also my Amazing Mum) 

Makaveli T-shirt- was originally a Mens T-Shirt from ebay
(which has been customized ,thanks mum :) )
 I've had this since I was 16 lol so unfortunately

I can't find a match BUT Etsy has loads of Tupac Tops 

(I've stayed away as I'll spend all my wages ) but

DO check it out the Tupac Tees are amazing.


Vintage Leather Jacket is from Cow Vintage
I'm obsessed with this Shop , if you love
vintage it's definitely the place to go.
I usually buy in store than online as I love a good
root (and for me online shopping in dangerous haha) but
the online shop has some quirky must have pieces.

As it's summer there doesn't seem to be any
leather jackets but I've put a link below
with similar looks.  
Again I've linked to Etsy  .

Distressed Ripped Jeans- are from Mango
(they're pretty old) but as ripped jeans are a hot trend
at the moment it isn't hard to find something similar.
You can get the look with these Topshop Jeans.

 Paisley Braces- were from a vintage lot Ebay has
a few beauties.

Doc Martens- you sadly don't get to see them in the
pictures but you can marvel at them here.

Hope you had a good read.
See me in new looks soon...

love
