Fatshion Faceoff: Boots

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello lovelies,

It’s Wednesday and I’m sure you know it’s Fatshion Faceoff time! If you’re new to the blog, please see here what Fatshion Faceoff is about :). This week’s challenge item was chosen by Mouna, and she chose boots.

I don’t know if my boots count as cheating, since I decided to wear ankle boots. I got these from Avenue when I went to New York in March, they were on sale for like $15, so obviously I had to get them! And this coat then.. OH MY GOOOOOD. My flatmate found this gem from a thrift store… Genuine leather Anna Scholz White Label coat. FOR £35! I just love finds like that, and I love my flatmate for always looking for things for me too <3!

Ankle boots: Avenue (similar at Simply Be) | Coat: 3, Anna Scholz – thrifted (similar shape but woolen at Marisota, PU sleeved coat at Simply Be) | Dress: 24, Matalan (similar at ASOS, similar at AX Paris) | Belt: XL, Dorothy Perkins (similar at One Stop Plus) | Headband: Accessorize (similar at Forever 21) | Tights: We Love Colors via the amazing Caroline <3 | Clutch: Accessorize (similar at New Look) | Glasses: LensWay (similar at Select Specs)

I seriously love this coat and I can’t believe my luck. Anna’s designs are amazing, but sadly way out of my reach because of the prices.. so thankfully some weird person (because who would want to get rid of this?!?) had given this to charity shop. Anyway, this should be about BOOTS.. sorry, haha. Click ahead to check out my fabulous ladies and see what kind of boots they are wearing.

OOTD: Autumn comfy

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello my lovelies,

This week seems to be another CRAZY one at work, so can’t do all the posts that I wanted to.. this girl needs her sleep too :/. But I wanted to share this OOTD with you. I’m wearing my new parka from Clothing at Tesco, which was a total bargain at £30. I saw it at Toni’s blog first, and since she looked totally great in it, I had to order it too. I also took advice from her post when she said that she sized up so that she could wear lots of layers underneath.. so yeah, I got a 24 too. I have wanted a parka so that I could wear it with heels, been obsessive about it actually, so now I am! The shorts are actually a playsuit, and I bought the top from Molly‘s blogsale.

Parka: 24, Clothing at Tesco (similar, similar) | Top: 18-20, Lane Bryant via Molly (similar) | Playsuit (worn as shorts): 26, ASOS Curve (longer shorts) | Bag: Primark (similar) | Shoeboots: Evans (similar) | Glasses: LensWay (similar)

Have you worn heels with more casual stuff like sweatshirts and parkas? Do you like that look?


Double Vision: Sequin collar

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey my lovelies,

It’s Sunday, so that means it’s time for a Double Vision post again. In this challenge my amazing friend Dani and I are choosing a theme, item, movie character.. whatever we come up with basically, and style those our own way and post at the same time, more about the challenge here. We kind of chose this week’s challenge together, since I bought these awesome sequin collars for both of us, and Dani said that we should wear them this week.

I wore the collar with my beloved ASOS puffball skirt and my new Dorothy Perkins jumper. I love the PU-details in the sleeves, and this jumper will surely be one of my faves this winter. I also went to my flatmate’s purse collection and borrowed this patent clutch, since it goes well with the shoes. Haha, I love living with two other girls.. I mean they are waaaaaaay smaller than me, but I can still borrow their accessories ;).

Collar: Matalan (similar) | Jumper: 22, Dorothy Perkins | Skirt: 22, ASOS (didn’t find a puffball, but this one would look great too) | Leggins: 20, Primark | Heels: Evans (similar) | Clutch: Next (similar) | Headband: George at ASDA (similar) | Glasses: LensWay (similar) | Lippy: Accessorize, Coral Crush With Love

I love these fashion collars, they can make any outfit look different, in this case more glam. Have you worn them? What type is your favourite? I wonder what Dani did with hers.. let’s go to DIY Fatshion to see!


OOTN: Sequins & Lace

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Hey my lovelies,

I got exciting parcel last week which had some amazing goodies from Matalan. I have been waiting for these items since I saw them at their press day in July, and now I finally had them in my possession! I’ve been happy to see that Matalan has brought more glam stuff to their Rogers & Rogers collection, like the amazing shirt you’ve seen in my posts lately.. and these pretties.

Sequin jacket: 24, Matalan | Dress: 24, Matalan – sold out online, still available in store (similar) | Shoes: borrowed from flatmate (similar) | Headband: Forever 21 | Lippy: Accessorize, Coral Crush With Love

I’m in love with these, seriously, I need a party to go to! Both the dress and the jacket are a bit too big for me, but it isn’t that noticeable, right? So that just means that the items are true to size, since I’m usually 22. I can’t believe that the jacket’s retail price is £25, since it doesn’t look cheap at all! The dress costs £28, which is a steal as well. Both of them look and feel much more luxurious than what their price tags suggest, I’m totally impressed :). My only negative thought is that the belt in the dress is intact, and that you can only tighten it one way (one strand on each side), since I’d love to wear this dress with other belts too. This fact definitely doesn’t stop me from loving this dress though, no way. Both of these items are available in sizes 18-30, so be sure to check out your nearest store!

The dress & jacket were gifted to me by Matalan for a review, but the comments and opinions are entirely my own.
