My Style

I totally stole this off Sophy's blog "Beauty but Better" which can be found here. Check her out, she's lovely and has amazing style.

How would you describe your style?
Now this is a hard one, I have no idea what my style so I'm just gonna throw some random words that come into my head that I think to describe my style. Indie, Grunge, Girly, Dark.
I like wearing dark colours but I love adding a pop of colour, currently I'm loving neon colours. I also love the grunge look.

Who inspires your style?
My mum, she is the most stylish women I know. Even when she's lounging about she still looks fabulous. Think Pasty in Ab Fab.
But if we're talking Celebrities I would have to say, Scarlett Johansson, Rachel Bilson and Sienna Miller. They think they all have great style off the red carpet and I love the way they style them-self.

What are your "wardrobe" staples?
I have quite a few so here is my list; a good pair of skinny blue Jeans, denim shorts, sheer white blouse, black t-shirt, maxi shirt, black ballet pumps, nude heels and LBD (little Black Dress)

What's the most expensive item in your "wardrobe"?
Aquascutum Mac(I got a good price on it, though), it's a timeless piece that will never go out of fashion. Also slightly cheaper than a Burberry Mac.

What's your most wanted item?
I have always wanted a Chanel 2.55 bag, it's a classic that will NEVER go out of style. One day I will own one.

Favourite designer?
Chanel, Fendi, Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood.

How much do you spend on clothes?
Far too much. I'm currently trying a new thing if I get rid of an item of clothing (either it's broken or I'm selling it) I'm allowed to buy something new to replace it. I take extremely good care of my clothes, which makes them last a very long time. I have some T-Shirts that are nearly 17 years old. Ekkk.

Where do you shop?
H&M is my favourite shop, I seem to find something in there every time I go in there. Great basics and fantastic knitwear. I like Zara for my trends as I think they get them bang on. I also shop in Primark, River Island and Topshop sale, but a lot of my shopping I do online (eBay, blog sales) and charity shops.

Favourite fragrance?
DKNY Women by DKNY
Boudoir by Vivienne Westwood
Cinema by YSL

What's your favourite way to do your hair?
In a high bun, or a natural kink.

What is your go-to outfit when you have no idea what to wear?
Black tights, denim shorts and a white shirt. Add some jewellery and red lippy. Surprisingly it works every time.

One fashion trend you wish would come back and stay?
The Mod trend, I'm a massive fan of the 60s and love the mod (lifestyle) trend. My mum was a Mod when she was younger and I love the clothes she wore back then. Shame she didn't keep any of them. I love the makeup, the dress and especially the Vespas! One day I will get one.

What's the most prized possession in your "wardrobe"?
My Jeffrey Campbell Litas and my Fred Perry Harrington that I got for a great price on eBay.

My JC Lita's
What advice would you give to someone who is fashion conscious?
Take small steps, if you like a trend then try something small from that trend. A good way to start is with accessories. And never be afraid to be yourself.
