Leandra Medine of Man Repeller for Zara

9 May

I love te Man Repeller blog and am especially enjoying these fun pics of Leandra Medine wearing Zara around NYC. 


Dying to get my hands on those flared trousers!




Spring Knitwear 

10 Mar

It’s all about the contrasting, Missoni-esque  details with this gorgeous Zara knit. 




Zara Evening Wear. Want it all.

23 Nov

It was a very cold day in Liverpool today and so I layered up to stop the chill.


Black jeans are my current fav and this pair were really cheap from Primark, they’re a great fit. These Vans shoes are pretty much the only leopard print you’ll find in my wardrobe as I tend to stay away from this over-done pattern on clothing.
I have had this Zara coat for ages now but it’s such a classic colour and shape that it always fits my outfits. The big H&M is great for shopping days, I’m in love with my grey Zara jumper and the denim shirt adds a little contrast and was from Primark.

Garance Doré for Zara

17 Nov

The New York Times called her ‘the guardian of all style’, she is a photographer, an illustrator, blogger, genius and an idol of mine. In 2011 she illustrated a special edition cover of Elle magazine and I won a copy, I was in love.

IMG_1978.JPG One of my other fashion loves is Zara, I’m constantly getting carried away when presented with such a focused, stylish, sleek store on the high street. So many outfits, so little time!
Put Garance Doré and Zara in the same sentence and you’ve already got my avid attention before I even see the photographs.
I was shopping in Zara Liverpool (buying gold shoes and grey knitwear) when I saw the lovely, fun, ever so stylish pictures of Garance blown up to epic proportions on a wall sized screen.







Go and check out what I’m all a fussing about at the constant source of inspiration that is GaranceDoré.fr and if you want to buy something gorgeous to wear don’t forget zara.com.

Black & Gold

16 Nov

These are a few of my favourite things
New and old
All in the theme of
Black & Gold

As it is November and we’re all in need of a small boost I thought I’d show you some of the things that are helping to brighten my gloomy days.

IMG_1900.JPGNew shoes are always guaranteed to bring a smile to my face, this lovely pair from Zara were £39.99 and in my opinion are very Christmas party worthy.

IMG_1901.JPG Of course there had to be a perfume in this list and I adore this one by Dolce & Gabbana and if I smell like the beautiful Scarlet Johansson perhaps I’ll find a French man to marry!

IMG_1902.JPG This wedding favour sits with my perfumes and I see it everyday, it’s a lovely reminder of my best friends amazing day and a subtle hint to be like a strong lioness.

IMG_1903.JPG I love this chic little pencil case from H&M, I keep my essential pencils and pens in it for off-the-cuff drawing as its compact enough to fit in my handbag.

IMG_1904.JPG This small ceramic and gold trinket box is where I keep matches for lighting candles, it’s prettier to look at than a match box.

IMG_1905.JPG You may have seen this watch on my OOTD posts because I wear it every day. It’s by Anglo-Swedish partnership Larsson & Jennings and was a gift to myself at the end of a bad year, it’s a very beautiful watch and reminds me that independence is so important, even if you’re in a partnership.

IMG_1906.JPG I’ve had this wrist cuff for years, so long I can’t remember where I bought it. It’s only a costume piece but has a very transformative effect when paired with a simple grey tee or black dress.

IMG_1907.JPG This new tee from H&M is great with high waisted skinny jeans and I love the graphic logo encased in super shiny shimmery gold.


Outfit of the day

11 Nov

I don’t like Mondays, that’s an understatement really but the point is they’re bad! Really bad! I find myself searching, when I should be on my way to work already, for something happy to wear that will make me feel better about the day that marks the beginning of the working week.
So my Monday outfit consisted of a beautifully soft, warm, Zara turtleneck sweater and a New Look pencil skirt with a vibrant floral print.


Worn with black tights and a pair of H&M boots with a chunky heel and tough zip.

I did a cat-eye flick and a pink lip colour, Mac ‘Hip ‘N’ Happy’ lip pencil.
