Señora Con Clase












First things first, let it be known that I am writing this in a fit of rage as seconds after I finished typing this post blogger decided to have bitch fit and delete half of what I had just spent the last hour of my life writing, so THANK YOU BLOGGER! ‘Hmph’ *deep exhale*

This post will now consist from this point on of me trying to remember what I wrote while frowning uncontrollably at the screen…

I’ve decided to try something new, generally I like to insert my text in bite size pieces between photos so to kind of force feed you my innermost thoughts, you know, kind of like a mother trying to get her toddler to eat some bizarrely flavoured pot of blended mush by making engine noises and saying “here comes the aeroplane!” (I’ve just been food shopping and seen broccoli, pea and apple flavour baby food, I mean seriously WTH? NO amount of embarrassing parent role-play would get ME to eat THAT!)

I just thought it would be more appealing than a big block of text, that would more often than not just consist of me ranting and raving about how excited I am about my new buys; for a clear example of how over excited I can get see my previous blog post ‘ Be a Little more Rebellious’.
(…OR of course how much I HATE blogger sometimes when it DELETES EVERYTHING!!!)

However, I feel like my blog would be a lot more visually appealing if the photos ran more fluidly and I had the text at the bottom...so yeah, I guess you can say this post is a bit of an experiment, you guys better not  get lazy and just stop reading my posts and start only scrolling through the photos! (Wow, there are way too many childhood references in this so far, I think I had better stop now...)

Right, so with all the weird metaphors out of the way, (well for the most part lets hope) on to the clothes. In case you thought I go for lunch looking like this everyday, well, I'm sorry to disappoint but I'm generally not this ladylike! (Chuck Taylors are my dress down uniform most days). I'm also sorry for my overuse of brackets, I just keep having too many pointless side thoughts that I feel I need to include today.

I wore this getup to a 'business meeting' and that's all I'm prepared to say on that front, I don't want to jinx myself! If anything comes of it I'll make sure you're all the first to know, don't you worry!

Side panel dresses and even trousers in the form of tuxedo pants, have been a 'thing' for ages now and I don't think they'll cease being a 'thing' for a while to come. I mean, they're quite literally a woman's dream, anything that makes you look slimmer and more shapely than you really are HAS to be good doesn't it!? The trend... sorry, 'magical illusion' has been re-invented this Pre-Fall by the likes of Dior no less. I paired my nude, black panel body-con dress with my favourite black crossbar heels from Zara and obviously NO outfit would be complete without my beloved Cambridge Satchel and Ray-Ban Erika's. What I really love about this dress is the cool leather inserts on the shoulders that give the otherwise minimalistic dress a bit of an edge.

As for accessories, I wanted to keep it  simple and sophisticated and so wore my Swarovski pendant and borrowed my mum's beautiful ring that I felt complimented my necklace well. Make-up wise I didn't go too overboard, then again I rarely do...I wore Clinique Blemish Control foundation, Mac Studio Finish concealer, a variation of eyeshadows (most of which were Mac), Rimmel Extra Super Lash mascara in brown\black and a Rimmel lippy that's so old I can't even make out what shade it is!

Anyway, I've actually rather exhausted myself writing this, I'm absolutely bloody barmy aren't I!? I seriously think the freedom from Law school has made me that little bit more potty! For more of my perpetual weirdness check back soon!

(Oh, did you enjoy the big wall of text or would you prefer I reverted back to playing a game of 'here comes the aeroplane'? - Let me know!)

Be a Little More Rebellious

Blending music and fashion into a potent formula of clothing that allows one to express their individuality is Allsaints mission statement and that is something which certainly permeates through their design decisions, the decision behind this 'Storm' vest was an especially great one...I mean, have you ever seen a more tremendous piece of clothing!?




Okay, so I know I've probably said that countless times in previous blog posts but if I ever say it again, I'M LYING, my future self IS LYING. Despite it weighing more than the contents of my daily handbag, (which is feat in itself, believe me) I felt like a rebellious rock princess while wearing it. Many of you may be thinking 'princess' and 'rock' are an impossible combination and that I should have used the cliche 'chic' to describe the aura this top creates, BUT HONESTLY the juxtaposition of these two unlikely things describe perfectly just how this top made me feel. Distressed glamour at it's finest. I could come up with these all day, but I won't cause I have a blog post to write, obvs!



Oh and the shoes, THE shoes. Where do I start!? They are obviously the most fabulous shoes to have ever graced my feet. And yes, I can say that without being a hypocrite because I said the top was the most tremendous 'piece of clothing', in the singular form and shoes come in pairs, so, yeah. LEAVE ME ALONE. I know I'm going a bit overboard with this post but these items just make me so happy, they are just SO ME.



My dearest friend Craig bought me these shoes for my birthday waaaay back in December but I didn't get around to wearing them for absolutely ages! I ended up donning them to another friends 21st birthday party mid way through my final year law exams this May,when I should have been revising... hence the title of this post! (It also explains why this blog post is SOOO late! But I clearly wasn't THAT rebellious as GUESS WHAT!? I passed all my exams and will be graduating from Law School next week!)
