Friday Inspiration

Who doesn't love a good old mood board for a bit of inspo?! With Valentines Day approaching, I thought I'd be influenced by lingerie and seduction. Check out my Pinterest and Tumblr to see more of my favourite photographs and inspirations.

High Shine Heaven

Scrolling through my Instagram feed and now I am stuck in a shoe situation! A bit out of the norm for me in terms of choice, but how amaze are these metallic platforms from ASOS! The problem is I only just treated myself to a couple of sale items from Topshop and H&M. (I deserved a reward for my hard labour and stress due to my last uni project!) 

However, my dissertation is due in next Friday?

Lusts of the Week

Chunky Block High Heels £49.99 - Ebay
Textures Gingham Shell Top £34 & Crinkle Gingham Peg Trousers - Topshop

Tapestry Crossbody Bag £25 - Topshop

Embossed Croc Leather Duffle Bag £60 - Topshop

Kylie Kaleidoscope Print Peg Trousers £18 & Top £15 - BooHoo

I have been wanting to add a co-ordinate to my drobe for yonks now. There are so many that I like but my sensibility is staying strong and with holding the funds. Im constantly procrastinating on every clothing website possible, this lust list could be a whole lot longer believe me. The black crocodile duffle bag I saw before Christmas and it is still available to tempt my eyes! As for the platform shoes I want a Stella McCartney original pair so bad, but maybe these will do?!

Sixties Gal

Gillet - H&M / Dress - Vera Moda / Top - Urban Outfitters / Bag - Zara / Brogues - Kurt Geiger

So the stress of third year uni is killing me. Everyone's body deals with stress in different ways and mine decides to produce a never ending series of spots, severely itchy dry eyes and eczema. Therefore the last week has meant I felt exactly how I looked. However, I woke up this morning determined to try and feel better about life, and after moisturising my face this morning five trillion times, I put make-up on for the first time in a week. 

My outfit today was a quick decision, and ended up looking for sixties, with my gillet and shift dress. I think an underlying influence from my dissertation on David Bailey is effecting my life in more ways than one.

Back to the Hard Grafting

Dress - H&M / Boots - Office / Necklace - Topshop / Earrings - H Samuels / 
Ring - (shop in Northampton)

First day back at Uni after my lovely time at home during the Christmas break. I'm a home baby, so had a little cry not wanting to return to the dreaded likes of Worthing. It's not the living away from home that gets me, it's the stress of uni life and work. We have a ridiculous amount of deadlines all put one after the other within the space of less than a month. Thanks Northbrook once again. 
Right, moan over. Lets move onto more positive talk. For Christmas and my birthday I got some beauts new pieces that I am still behind on blogging about. My brother got me this ring for my birthday and these silver hoops for xmas, bless his cottons! I have decided I want both my hands covered in rings, so this new addition was perfect. I loved how it was in keeping with my other two, plain silver with a texture to it. As for the hoop earrings, I literally have one pair of nice silver studs and all the others can't be worn for more than a day before making your ears green, so I was despo in need of some new variations. 
Originally, I asked my auntie for that amaze green crocodile clutch bag I blogged about in my recent wishlist. But of course, two days after my auntie ordered it, she receives an email telling her it was out of stock!! I was so annoyed but had to get on the hunt for a new pressie. With nothing really popping out to me within the price range, I half heartedly picked out this black jumper dress from H&M. I have to admit I thought it was just a jumper, but I loved the fact that it was long enough to wear as a dress. It's a great casual piece that you can just throw on with ease and not too much worry.

Gillet - H&M / Leather Jacket - Zara / Beaded Top - Topshop / Necklace - a birthday present / Leggings - H&M / Boots - H&M

I have been wanting this furry gillet since I first laid eyes on it, which seems so long ago. I was strong and prohibited myself from buying it, but it kept on playing on my mind for so long. When I finally thought fuck the popo and went to purchase the beaut it was gone! Devastated I tried to get over the heartache.  Christmas day came. I hadn't wanted anything in particular and didn't know what to expect. A few presents in, I tore back the paper and saw the glimpse of shaggy black fur. I was singing and dancing all day. Mother and Father I salute you.
