Black on White

                      Tee- Ebay // Leather Skirt - Hearts & Bows // Necklace - Primark // Gold   Cuffs - Ebay // Boots - Daisy Street*
Hey dolls, 

Happy Easter everyone :) I hope everyone has an Easter egg to get involved with today, mmm chocolate time!I am loving having the time off work - amen to bank holiday weekends! I'm also going to my friends 21st birthday tonight which I am pretty excited about. Obviously I am still having a dilemma over what to wear but, standard, always last minute! 
I thought I'd show you a recent outfit I have been wearing. I have some weird addiction with buying things off Ebay at the minute, it's far too addictive! Anyway, I got this tee and gold cuffs (which I have been meaning to buy for ages) off Ebay the other week and I was pretty impressed considering both probably came to a tenner - what more do you want?! I really need to stop wearing this skirt but it's so easy to wear and goes with pretty much everything, I just can't stop. Although, I have bought the same version in a light denim in order to convert to a summer skater skirt thang. Will post on that one soon! 

Hope everyone is having a lush weekend :)

Why can't I have it all...


Hey dolls, 

Just thought I would give you a run down of my current wish list. I'm a little concerned that it's nearly all black but I just want need all these things in my life at the moment!

1. Feline Tee (similar HERE) - Ebay
Love these statement tee's that joke with the designer originals! Plus they are fab for just throwing on with pretty much any outfit! You can tuck this tee into anything, disco pants, high waisted shorts, dungarees, skater skirt - ANYTHING.

2. Off The Shoulder Bardot LBD - Love this simple Miss Guided LBD, it's perfect for pretty much any night out and can be dressed up in so many ways! I love the off the shoulder 'bardot' look as well, very cute. 
3. Gold Chain (Similar HERE) - I have recently been buying everything off ebay when it comes to jewellery, there are so many bargains I just don't see the point in forking out for something in Topshop when you can get pretty much the same via Ebay! 
4. Homies beenie - Another Ebay lust! Love these beenies, I've always been a bit precarious as to whether I even suit them but I'd like to give this one a try. 
5. Dope 24k Logo Snapback- Karma loop is one of my new faves for fashion. I love so many things on here! Espesh the aaccessories! Only problem is that it's an American website and I haven't bought anything yet so not sure about delivery etc! 
6. Fermina Leather Heeled Sandles - I have loved these shoes ever since I saw them in zara a while back. I really like the double strap at the top on these Miss Guided ones and they are a very classic pair of shoes to have in the wardrobe :) ! 
7. Rihanna for River Island Boots - I always feel a bit hit and miss about celeb collaborations but if it's someone I love i.e. Kardashians I always end up buying something. However when I heard Rihanna was collaborating, I was super excited as I LOVE her style and would consider her as one of my favourite fashion icons. I was immediately drawn to these boots when I walked into the store and they are all I can think of when it comes to shoes at the moment - NEED! 
8. Black Almina Halterneck Bodysuit - I have actually just bought this after seeing Melissa from Pretty Little Obsessions posted this on her instagram looking lovely! I have wanted the AA one for a while but never got round to getting one, so for less than half the price I couldn't really say no to this one! 
9. Denim Skater Skirt - Again, another item I have been wanting for a while! I wear my leather skater skirt to death and I am definitely in need of a Summer version! I love light wash denim and I can't wait till this is back in stock in my size in Fashion Union so I can add this to my wardrobe! 
10. Rihanna for River Island Split Maxi - Another Rihanna want! I couldn't have a wish list without a 'split' being featured somewhere could I?! A girl obsessed. I absolutely love everything about this dress and I think it is gorgeous! It's not very summery, but the weather is hardly hitting high climates at the moment so I think I'm safe! 

Do you like anything off my wish list? What are you lusting after at the minute?

Karma Clothing | Neon Midi

Dress - Karma Clothing* // High Tops - Footlocker

Hey dolls!
Yayyy its Fridaaaaay! Hope everyone's got a lovely weekend planned! I have been super busy going backwards and forwards from home the past few weekends doing driving lessons and my new job which I LOVE (I got to meet Neyo and Tulisa - Agh!) and what not, mad busy!  I wanted to share with you a new piece to my wardrobe from the amazing Karma Clothing website. I am new to Karma Clothing but I am very happy that I am now in the know with this online company as the clothes are super on trend and at ridiculously good prices they are hard not to love! When I was browsing I literally couldn't believe my eyes when I saw how cheaply priced some of the products were. You definitely need this website in your life!

I was very kindly asked to choose something from the range and I was drawn to this midi dress straight away whilst having a browse. I absolutely love the whole tie dye style print and the neon colours - perfect for Spring/Summer, plus I can wear this now due to the long sleeves and the midi style, win-win! I would wear this dress for both through the day and for a night out (the joys of a versatile midi dress!) I have teamed this dress for through the day with an all white pair of Airforce1 Nike high tops but this would also look fab with some heels as well! I wore this for work yesterday and I got so many complements for it, this dress gets a massive thumbs up :)

Karma clothing have LOTS of midi's online at the moment so you are literally spoilt for choice! The midi I am wearing is now just £7.95!!!! Yes, you heard it right, £7.95. If that's not a bargain I don't know what is! You can get the dress HERE.Plus there are lots of other styles and patterns available at the same price so go and have a browse ;) 

Do you shop at Karma Clothing? Do you love a midi dress like me? 

Ps. I would also be SUPER grateful if you would nominate my blog for best newcomer - fashion award, only if you enjoy my blog of course :) ! HERE.

Come on Barbie, lets go party.

Midi Dress- Manchester Boutique
Shoes - Bordello via Ebay

Hey Dolls! 

Hope everyone is having a good week. Mine has been pretty stressful, you know where you just have one of them weeks where everything goes wrong and it's one big massive stress, yeah well that. Anyway, on a plus I had a fun day yesterday as well as it being super productive as I was working on a shoot for the fashion website of the company I work for and it was lots of fun. They have just had a massive website make-over that you can see HERE if you fancy a look. 

Back to the dress 8) I picked up this Barbie print midi dress the other week when I decided to have one of those dangerous after work 'window shopping' sessions. Never happens - I will always end up spending money. However, this wasn't so bad as it was about £10 which yet again is a major bargain! I used to love all the Barbie stuff in Miss Selfridge and when I saw this midi dress I thought 'aww that's cute', gotta love a midi! So I grabbed the last one in my size from some random boutique shop in Manchester. The first time I wore this dress I grunged it up a bit with an army jacket and flat black studded boots for through the day, but I decided to show you how I would wear it up for a night out. Usually I'm not sure I would go this girly but seeing as it's Barbie, I thought I'd go all out with the Barbie shoes as well! Some might say it looks a bit tacky, but I kinda like it. I'm not sure where you can get this dress other than where I got mine but they have some pretty much the same super cheap HERE and  HERE from Karma Clothing and also the crop top HERE from OMG Fashion.
 Nearly Friday! Yay! What do you think of the Barbie dresses?

My Summer Winner | American Apparel

Tank Dress - American Apparel // Snapback - Footlocker // Airforce 1's - Footlocker // Tan Wedges - Manchester Boutique // Gold hoops - Topshop // Watch - Michael Kors

Hey Dolls,

Hope everyone has had a lush weekend! I have been seeing a fair amount of hungover status's today so I'm guessing yes haha. I have had a fairly sober weekend and went to see about my new part time job last night at Manchester night club Bijou. I'm fairly skint at the moment so the extra cash will be very much appreciated! I also was very happy to be reunited with my fave MAC lippie that I got through so quick (please me) and I got to bag myself a free one with the empty product swap, yayy! This weekend - so far so good!

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, beauty, fashion & lifestyle blogger Carly, posted a dress from American Apparel via Twitter and I fell in love with this perfect Summer/holiday dress. I soon forgot about it though, that was until I was having a browse round town after work one night and ended up in American Apparel window shopping, well apparently. I saw that they had the dress in stock and couldn't resist a little try on. As soon as I put it on I fell into Summer wardrobe mode and I immediately thought I need this dress. I think it is fab for holidays and summer and can be dressed up or down. Me being me ended up buying this dress in yellow AND red, as I just couldn't decide but now I have decided I need it in white too. However, I am going to try a DIY for a white one as this is a basic dress and I think £32 is quite expensive to be blowing on three dresses all the same ha. Especially if I am moaning about being skint 8) This dress is available in TEN colours so there are lots of lush ones to choose from. I have photographed how I would wear this dress for through the day to night, I also think this dress would look fab with a body chain worn back to front so the detail is on the back. You can get this dress HERE and also on ASOS, but I don't think they have the full colour range on ASOS for some reason.

Have you bought anything from AA recently? Have you started impulse buying your Summer wardrobes yet?

Miss Guided | Maxi Split

Hey dolls,

Can't believe it's Friday already! This week has flown in and I'm not complaining. I've had a pretty busy week as per usual and I'm on a spending ban WAH. Need to save my pennies for holidays ! Anyway, before my spending ban I made the most of it and bought a few pieces, including a gorgeous dress from American Apparel which I will post sometime this week! 
So I thought I would share with you my latest purchase from Miss Guided. If you read my blog regularly, you will know that I have some unknown obsession with a high side split. I don't know why I love it so much but I do and my wardrobe is slowly becoming split central for spring/summer! I really like wearing baby pink and nude colours so I was immediately drawn to this dress when I was having a little browse of the new in section last week. It also comes in a gorgeous mint colour as well, which I have been lusting after ever since I received this one. I am definitely getting too excited for summer clothes. I love all the pastel colours and I much prefer summer clothes shopping than winter fo sho.
I have bought a black maxi split dress from Miss guided before and the reason why I keep going back is due to the length of this dress. As I am pretty tall (about 5"7/8) getting a maxi dress is always a pain as if I want to go on a night out and wear heels I cant be bothered with some half mast dress or skirt. This Miss Guided dress is perfect for me as it is quite long and I can wear with or without heels and it still looks okay!You can get this dress HERE and it is just £17.99 which I think is a bargain! 

Have you bought anything off Miss Guided recently?
