Upstaged Vintage In Leeds Photo Shoot Pictures

So a while ago I did a review on a shop I really loved in Leeds called Upstaged Vintage, the shop has clothes from decades past and stocks some really unique and colourful items.
In return for my review on their shop the owner asked me if I would like to have some complimentary photo’s done as a thank you and also to go on their shop website, I of course agreed happily! So on Friday just before I came home I went and had them done, I chose three outfits and these were the pictures – very happy with them! 🙂

My Outfit Of The Day – First Day Back At Home

Today was my first day being back at home, I must admit it was super nice to wake up in my double bed in my house and feel at home! I haven’t been home for about 4 months now as I have been away at University in Leeds as you would’ve known if you’re a constant follower of mine! 🙂 I’ve missed being at home and missed seeing my family, but I thought to mark the occasion of me being back at home I will write a little post about my outfit of the day today!

Me and my parents went to town and just went to Costa to grab a coffee and catch up so today I wore:

  • My blue skinny jeans
  • My tan boots
  • My leather black jacket
  • A mustard dark brown fitted jumper with cute shoulder buttons!
  • My new handbag – which is beautiful 🙂

It was super sunny today so the picture is a little bright, but that’s my overall outfit of the day for a casual day out 🙂

Hope you all are having a lovely day!

The Frow – Black Leather With White Leather Sleeves Top Review*

So happily a while ago I asked ‘The Frow’ a pretty online upcoming clothing store to do a promotional exchange and I got a very happy email back saying they would love to, much to my excitement! The online store caught my attention because it had clothes which were different to other online shops, not just the generic stuff you get but they had some really beautiful and different pieces in different styles and I thought that was pretty awesome.

After I received the item in the post I excitedly unwrapped it and immediately tried it on, it fitted wonderfully and I was happy with the outcome. It fits just perfectly to accentuate my figure and the clash of black and white makes the top stand out! It goes great with jeans or leather leggings as well and would look amazing with some accessories like chunky bracelets or necklaces! 

I would recommend checking out their online store here: http://www.thefrontrowonline.co.uk/
Make sure you check out their twitter page as well! https://twitter.com/TheFrow1

Once again a big thank you to ‘The Frow’ for this wonderful promotional exchange! 🙂

New Weekly Blogger Interviews – Blogger Denise Earley

Name: Denise Earley

Location: Galway, Ireland

Age: 27

What three things do you blog about most: My blog is a mish mash of the things I love, but my most frequent posts are; outfit posts, beauty reviews of highstreet products and celeb style posts.

Name three words to describe your blog: Oh this is a hard one! Laid Back, Eclectic, Fun.

 When did you first start blogging: I started blogging in 2011, but didn’t really blog for a lot of 2012 because I kind of lost my blogging mojo! I started again in February this year and I love it more than ever and feeling so inspired.

 Why did you begin to blog: I stumbled across Lily Melrose’s blog (llymlrs.com) one day on the interweb and thought it was such a great way of showcasing your own personal style! I was looking for a new hobby at the time and decided I’d give it a go!

 What’s one blogging tip that you would share with other potential bloggers: Be yourself and write about the things you love. Don’t feel pressure to be like other bloggers and write about/review the exact same stuff as them. If you write about the things that interest you, in your own way, people will take notice and appreciate it much more.

 Do you see yourself still blogging in three/five years time: I’m a “take it a day at a time” kinda gal as you don’t know what’s around the corner. But I would like to think I’ll still be blogging in the future as it has become a big part of my life. I’m not sure I’d still be blogging about the exact same things in 5 years time, but who knows!

 What’s one of the best things about being a blogger: Definitely the people you get to interact with! There are so many lovely people I’ve talked to that I would never have the opportunity to chat to if it wasn’t for blogging 🙂

Has blogging helped you significantly in any other way: It has made me challenge myself style wise and I’m not afraid to try new things. I put more thought into what I’m wearing now and how I style it. It’s helped me find bargain beauty products, thanks to all the amazing beauty bloggers out there. It has also put a significant dent in my bank balance 😉

I’d like to thank Denise for taking part and for her lovely answers! 🙂

Style Icon: Emma Stone

We know her from films such as Easy A, The Amazing Spider Man and Superbad but she isn’t just famous for her acting abilities, this actress is also famous as a style icon as well! Emma Stone has on countless occasions appeared on the front and in those glossy magazines we love so much making a debut as a style icon for females worldwide. So I thought as she is one of my favourite actresses I would do a little style icon collaboration post on her wardrobe! Enjoy 🙂

Image

Emma has a bright and colourful wardrobe that is not limited to anything, her style choices represent her personality in many ways and you can see that her generally happy demeanor is aired through her style choices of vibrant pieces with a range of colours and styles.

In the first photo we have Emma Stone wearing a bright flamingo pink outfit which oozes playful yet sophisticated vibes, in the next photo we have Emma modelling a kingfisher blue item of clothing these bright colours show that she is not afraid to be bold and won’t stick to just plain colours such as beige or grey. In the last two photo’s she is wearing a red embellished cocktail dress and black heels and in the other a floral dress, both of which accentuate her figure and complexion. Good choices!

OOTD for the summer sunshine

So today has been very warm here in England and very sunny for a change so I decided to take a chance and leave my coat at home crossed my fingers it wouldn’t rain and went out in a polka dot dress! This is a dress I got a few years back and it still fits which is great, it’s black with beige polka dots and cute little brass buttons at the front.
I actually brought this dress from Primark for around about £3 a couple summers ago so for £3 it’s lasted me a good while which is always great if something lasts for ages after you brought it! You can pretty much wear it with anything, but today as I was in a rush I went for black tights and cardigan – Not very bright but a good outfit all the same. If I had more time it probably would’ve been brighter and bolder but when your in a rush it’s hard to choose things that match as well as colour co-ordination! Hope you all enjoy 🙂

My Third OOTD Post Ever

So this is my third outfit of the day post I have ever written, slowly but surely I am getting better and bit more confident with doing these so that’s a plus! But today I was meeting my family as they came to visit so I decided to wear some of my favourite items of clothing. Without further ado I present my third outfit of the day post ever 🙂

Image

A round about a year ago on Valentines day my partner brought me some brown skinny jeans from ASOS which I love because I think they are a really lovely shade of brown and go with pretty much anything. They are super comfy and look so nice and accentuate curves which is good, I also decided to wear my black formal fitted shirt from TU by Gok Wan which I love because it fits so nicely and I like the way that it is fitted as well and looks so formal but cute too! Sorry about the picture it was a really windy day and by the time I got home I looked awful but still wanted to share with you guys 🙂

My Second OOTD Post Ever…

Okay so I am still getting used to doing OOTD (Outift of the day) posts as I am still very shy but It’s alright, when Summer kicks in a bit more I will start to take some photo’s outside which would look better I guess than indoors, but still I thought I would share with you guys my outfit that I wore today 🙂 

Image

I wore a plain black vest because it goes which literally every single item of clothing possible and some grey ultra skinny jeans from TU that I got ages ago in a sale for £6. Everyone on here knows I love blazers so today I teamed my vest and jeans with a black,red and white blazer that I got a while back from a random shop, I love this blazer because unlike other blazers it isn’t restricting and instead it is quite stretchy and elasticated which is a bonus for maximum comfort.

The weather today was sunny however still rather cold which is why I thought this was a great combination, plus the blazer can be buttoned up or unbuttoned and the sleeves can be rolled up if it got hotter. (Which it didn’t!)

Anyway hope you enjoyed my second OOTD post 🙂 Like/subscribe/follow!

My First OOTD (Outfit Of The Day) Post!

Okay so my partner brought me this Warehouse blazer and I love it so I thought I would do an Outfit Of The Day for everybody to see how I wore it today! This is my very first Outfit Of The Day post and I am hoping it will be the first of many to come if it receives good views 🙂

So why do I love my blazer so much? Well… My blazer is a lovely shade of beige with some light brown stripes on it, I love it because it’s such a beautiful colour and can be matched with nearly everything! But today I chose to wear a plain black vest and blue skinny jeans so I looked casual with a hint of formal. I really am a big fan of blazers as I love to look and feel professional and quite classy but I also think they’re great because you can wear them with almost anything even casual attire, so a blazer is always on the top of my favourite pieces of clothing list. In my wardrobe I have tons of blazers but this is my new found favourite, it’s soft and warm and fitted which make it perfect in my eyes at least!

What else I love about blazers is that you can wear it in many different ways and still look great, sleeves rolled up or rolled down, buttoned up or unbuttoned – you name it it’ll work 🙂
So this is how I went to University today and I felt happy with the outfit I chose, I didn’t really use many accessories as I always wear quite a few bracelets anyway and I have a special necklace on which I keep on 24-7. But never the less I love accessories especially if they are cute, unique, big or bold! 🙂

Anyway hope you liked my first OOTD post :)!
