Someday or Today: Camel Dresses

Have been drooling over this Chloe leather dress for quite a wee bit at work. Bang on trend with the minimalistic look that Spring/ Summer is set for….however, let’s be honest if I had that amount of cash to splash on a dress I wouldn’t of just taken advantage of the 4 Pot Noodles for £2 offer at ASDA now would I? So to feed my lust for this dress I think I will have to buy this gorge camel dress from ASOS, only £45 and it would look amaze teamed with some sky scraper heels and a boxy clutch.

Favourite Fashion Moments….sequins

So, I have sooo many photos stored up in my laptop and have decided what better way to use them than to start featuring them on my blog. Everyone has that moment when they look back on their favorite outfits from the past (just me?) and an outfit isn’t just an outfit to me, it is a memory…of, say, a fabulous night out or a hilarious drunken time.
Getting the ball rolling on this section of my blog are my old faithful sequin hotpants… a steal from Topshop for £16, I think I worked these to the max…I always feel soooo Lady Gaga Bad Romance in them and refuse to throw them out – there will be a occassion in 2011 for them…I swear!

Trends…and the men that hate them!

If GaGa's wearing it...I must also

So it has recently dawned on me that the majority of trends that us girlies simply j’adore – men absolutely cannot stand! I came to the realization after contemplating on whether to wear my geek glasses the other day (I decided against them in the end…they looked appalling with my headband) after putting them on whilst gazing in the mirror with consideration my boyf broke it to me that he hates them with a vengeance “They aren’t even prescription, what is the point in wearing them?”. Truth is I don’t know why I wear them, my sight is pretty average but like most trends, if they are being sold in the shops and every other girl is wearing them – imma buy them!

And geek glasses aren’t the only accessory that men don’t understand….the harem pant epidemic of ’09 and its revival in 2010 did not go down well with the male population – “it looks like a nappy” and “why is your crotch so baggy?” were among the loving observations of these misunderstood trousers and let’s not even get started on jeggings…..

Well, my message to men is yes we women may occasionally (Okay, all the friggen time) wear things that you cannot comprehend in your minds but in a world of Spring/Summers and Autumn/Winters, in this season and out the next it is virtually impossible to know what is ridiculous and what actually looks reasonable. Rest assured we may wear silly things some times but come next season we will be thinking what the hell where we thinking ( acid wash jeans, anyone? )

….mind you, come the next season we will probably find something even more ridiculous to wear – Don’t hate the player hate the game!

Floral Fancy

Decided to debut my floral headband this weekend. Felt a bit like a bridesmaid in it but still love it…only £2 from Primark so a bit of a steal! I teamed it with my trusty Primark camel cape, biker boots and Topshop cropped London tee. Continuing the floral look I decided to wear my new River Island midi skirt with a studded belt stolen from my sister’s cupboard (muhahaha).
Hope you like the look! I just hope I don’t wear this headband out as I know I want to rock it throughout Spring and Summer…very flower power and I just love anything that gives me a hippy chic look!

Sunday Summary… 23/01/11

This weekend I….ate way more than what I usually should eat. Had my beautiful friend Megan visit me for the weekend [check her out on twitter @NotoriousMEG_ ] Drank way more cider than I usually should drink. Shed a small tear over how expensive alcohol is in London ( I come from a land of quadruple vodkas and free shots! ) Decided to embrace geek chic . Danced with krishas in the street Hare Krishna!!! Learned how to use the hob in my flat after living here 3 weeks . Went for a ride in a Tuk Tuk. Drove a Tuk Tuk . Discovered some cute bargains in Primark – a floral headband which will be my summer essential!! Tried to knock on No 10 Downing Street…got told by armed guards that we wern’t allowed. Got Lost. Enjoyed a Pizza Hut, Fajitas and a Chinese. Tried my first pot noodle whilst watching my OC boxsets in a hungovered state. Got crunk to old favourites such as Golddigger and new favourites like Traktor. Met David Tennant – well someone who looked freakishly like him!! Embraced Henry VIII outside the Tower of London. Hugged a Gherkin. Went to Buckingham Palace. Made up too many funny sayings with Megan and had a beautiful weekend!!

Bring on next weekend x

Jared Leto loves knitted animal hats too


Ok, so you all know how much I kind of like this guy called Jared Leto?? We’ve met in person twice and I have been to 9 of his gigs – I think it’s getting serious.
Anywho, I have blogged in the past of my love for crazy knitted animal hats and it appears that Mr Leto has a shared taste in them….Gawd, we are practically married.

……a girl can dream x
