CROCHET CRUSH | BOOHOO CAMPAIGN

CROCHET CRUSH | BOOHOO CAMPAIGN


I love styling and BOOHOO have recently launched their Bloggers X Dress Of the Month Campaign, selecting their fave bloggers each month along with a mystery item for them to style and shoot. 

When Boohoo contacted me for a third collaboration I was up for the challenge and couldn't wait to see the secret dress!

Fashion and personal style is a form of self expression for me and I looked forward to making the product my own and adapting it to my bold street style.

arrived and I immediately had a cool 90's grudge look in mind.

THE VIBE





Fashion has no rules and instead of styling the glam BOUTIQUE DRESS in a typical party look I went for a contemporary Dark 90's vibe working the dress with Braids,Shades , FATZ K CHOKER,VINTAGE STUDDED LEATHER JACKET,VINTAGE HIGH WAISTED BELT and CHUNKY PATENT BOOTS.

I love the high neck and crochet detail on the dress and knew it would fit and add a bit of sass to a dope 90's grunge look.  

This outfit can be rocked day or night, perfect for festival season , a Hip-hop Night or drinks with the girls. 

I hope you're feeling my latest post  and feel inspired to revamp and style up this BOOHOO DRESS or your pretty  lace bodycon in an  edgy street  look. 

Shout out to BAM BERTO SNAPS for the photography.


and stay tuned for my Cool'n' Casj Summer Look.

PEACE AND LOVE

FREE SPIRIT

FREE SPIRIT




Summer is around the corner and this is a cute bold look for the season.
I literally have been dying to blog and show you guys this outfit!
I've mentioned in my previous posts that I worked at the Birmingham Clothes Show last Winter and I came across some cool Independent Brands.

YOUMEWE and ELSKER LIFE  were 2 of the brands that I immediately fell in love with.

ELSKER LIFE is a bohemian brand embracing harmony and the joy of life their sweatshirts printed with intricate designs of the Hamsa Hand,Buddhas and inspiring quotes. 

I'm a spiritual person and as soon as I spotted their stall I HAD to have one of their pieces.

YOUMEWE is by London and Johannesburg based designer Chantel Koning. I love her use of vibrant African prints ,over-sized styles and draped silhouettes.

Her garments are designed to be worn in more ways than one which I'll feature in one of my next blog posts.


THE VIBE








I  was going for a boho outfit look styling the DRAPED VIBRANT OVER-SIZED JACKET and HAMSA HAND PRINTED SWEATER with BLACK RIPPED JEANS ,LACE TIGHTS and BULLET BOOTS.


I finished off my hippy look with my STATEMENT INDIAN CHOKER and GOLD STATEMENT PENDANT .

This outfit is also perfect for festival season swapping the jeans for denim shorts worn with Doc Martens or bold colourful trainers.

I've got my eye on the FLOATING BUDDHA SWEATER  and think
 ELSKER LIFE 's sweaters are an essential.
I rock mine all the time ,it's so easy to wear and it's become a key garment in my wardrobe.

Can't wait to rock my YOUMEWE  jacket over my summer dresses.
Their vivid,fluid designs are a must have for next season and I can't wait to get my hands on their new pieces.
Check out their instagram for new looks.

Hope you're feeling my care-free vibes and stay tuned for my Summer Looks.

BRITNEY BITCH

BRITNEY BITCH


As promised in my last post SIMPLE SOUL here's my fashion look featuring T-shirt brand THROWBACK TEES.
Celebrity printed tees are a huge trend at the moment and music t-shirts have always been a big part of my wardrobe ( my chest of draws are full to the brim with cool prints and iconic figures).

I've been rocking TUPAC tops since I was 15 years old and over the past few years I've wore music gems such as the late AMY WINEHOUSE, my style crush GWEN STEFANI , LAURYN HILL and in a recent blog post AALIYAH.

In this blog post I'm repping BRITNEY SPEARS who I've always been a fan of and when I think about her it always take me back to childhood.
 I was obsessed with her 'Hit me baby one more time' video  haha and loved her tracks with Neptunes.

I recently watched a lifetime film based on her life which reinforced  my love for her.


THE LOOK












THROWBACK TEES is the sister brand of ROYAL TEES LONDON.
 I wrote about ROYAL TEES LONDON in my COLD AS ICE post.
Their t-shirt line focuses on 90's Hip-hop and Pop iconic musicians where as THROWBACK TEES is full of cool nostalgic celebrities and characters taking you way back to your 90's childhood.

I literally can't wait to wear their KENAN & KEL TEE in one of my next fashion posts.

Double denim outfits are my favourite look so I styled my BRITNEY TEE with my 80's Denim Dress which I've styled as a full length jacket and ripped denim jeans.

Accessories are a key part of an outfit and add detail and character to fashion looks.
I love bold, unique jewelry so I wore my antique filigree choker which was originally a VICTORIAN BELT (shout out to my Mum for the alteration) and FATZ K AELLA HINGED DOUBLE RING .  

I've linked to some of their cool Tees and similar items so you can recreate this vibe.






























Thank you for stopping by and stay updated with my IG feed.

SIMPLE SOUL

SIMPLE SOUL





Hey Guys sorry I've not posted in a while.
I've had so much going on at the moment and I've been dying to blog this outfit!

I love blogging and championing Independent Fashion Brands.
In this outfit post I'm rocking cutting edge Fashion Label PREY  OF LONDON and Independent brand SIMPLE SOUL CREATIONS .

THE LOOK












I've rocked PREY OF LONDON in my previous outfit posts ICY and ONE IN A MILLION I love their use of bold graphics and luxury fabrics and I'm obsessed with their GODDESS BOMBER JACKET and GODDESS PANTS .

Lucky for you guys both pieces are now on SALE ;)the 
JACKET Was £145 Now £36.25 and the PRINTED PANTS Was £90 is now £36.25!

I honestly think you should treat yourself ;).
Both garments can be mixed or matched, making a killer combo or
make a fashion statement styled with your capsule wardrobe (check out my  blog post ONE IN A MILLION  as I've also rocked my GODDESS PRINTED HAREMS in this previous look).


I consider myself an Old Soul and I adore my 'SIMPLE SOUL TEE' by  
Artist Natalie Burke.

I'm a sucker for bold graphics and I love the lip bandana print design.

Natalie is a UK based illustrator I love her unique abstract urban and spiritual artwork and I can't wait to see her Fashion Garments in the near future!

She offers a custom digital artwork service and has worked with an eclectic mix of clients including  Musicians and Fashion Labels.

I love this illustration  of me ! Her work is dope and she is super talented.



Check out her work on instagram
https://www.instagram.com/simplesoulcreations

and her website for Fashion, Online Portfolio and Inquiries.



Thanks for stopping by! 
I hope you're loving my print on print, street luxe look and check out these two dope brands.

I've got so many cool outfits to show you so stay tuned and keep your eyes peeled for my collab with THROWBACK TEES!

Peace and Love
