Saturday Night at the Movies


Bah, I'm getting so behind with my blogging, stupid life is always in the way.

This was an outfit I wore to the cinema two weekends ago. I like to get a little bit dressed up even if it's just to go to the pictures as I'm normally pretty scruffy; feel like I should make an effort for the long-suffering boyfriend every now and again!

I wore my trusty thrifted silk bomber jacket. I wasn't sure about it at the time, but anticipating luxe bomber jackets to be big come S/S'13 (not that I'm usually one to follow trends too rigidly) I thought I'd get it and worst case scenario, I'd sell it once into the season.

I'm actually embarrassed that I even contemplated putting it down- absolutely love it now!

Also wearing the first pair of jeans I've bought in a LONG time. I held off on buying a nice pair, telling myself there was no point in spending the money if I was going to shift my third year uni weight and er, guess what? That never happened! These are from a random brand in Urban Outfitters and were £20 in the sale.

Also gave the Jeffrey Campbell Brooklyn's their first proper airing (only £40 in the Office January sale).

Necklace- vintage

The new JCs are pretty comfy to walk in but definitely feel a bit strange with the cut-out wedge.

In case you're interested, I watched Django, the new Quentin Tarantino film and it was SO good. Genuinely the best film I've seen in quite a while, really recommend going to see it if you get chance.

Have you seen any good films recently?

My Perfect London Fashion Week Outfit with Motel Rocks


I'm not usually one to want to partake in blogger competitions but when I heard about Motel Rocks' chance to attend London Fashion Week, I did a little shriek at my computer screen.

Motel is a brand I truly love and have done for a number of years; coupled with the fact that as a fashion-obsessed Journalism graduate, reporting from LFW would be an absolute dream.

So without further a-do, here's my perfect LFW outfit, with some key pieces from Motel:

My Perfect LFW Front Row Outfit with Motel Rocks

I've chosen some great items from Motel. The Foxy (perfect down to the name- aha!) white faux leather jacket with studs down the shoulders has a really cool modern aesthetic and is the perfect throw-on piece for spring. I also picked the Lara crop polo top which is covered with a digital camo print to add a bit of edge and the Star Textured Skinny Pant in black as I'm a big fan of anything high-waisted! Add to this my Jeffrey Campbell Lana boots (which my boyfriend bought me for my birthday from Motel last year), a trusty bowler hat and some silver jewellery, including an awesome cross bracelet by Rock 'N Rose.

I'm sure I'm not alone in desperately wanting to go to LFW- what would you wear if you were?
