Hey boys and girls, how’s it going? I’ve recently been getting back into making videos for my YouTube channel so yes, I’ve been multitasking like crazy. Feel free to check out my channel whenever you’re waiting for a new post but right now stay right here as I’m bringing you a new look!

Right let’s just start with the jeans because I’m dying to talk about them. They’re technically not a jean because of the material but they are the Topshop fit that I adore. They are Jamie jeans, the best style of jean that Topshop do. If you know, then you know. If you don’t know, NOW you know!!! They are like a coated jean but more extreme. The material is vinyl which gives them this glossy plastic look which I absolutely love. Although they are an effort to get on these chicken legs of mine, they are well worth the struggle. Really they are the best thing for me as I am also a messy eater so if I do spill anything on my lap I can just simply wipe it off. It’s a win win situation! Overall they exude a very Rock ‘n’ roll/S&M aesthetic and that’s exactly what I was going for for today’s look.

To keep this outfit edgey I paired the bottoms with and black branded hoodie. Slayer is printed on the hoodie and although I’m not a big listener of the band I was more interested in the actual look of the hoodie. I fell in love with the flames and knew immediately they would be the perfect match for these jeans. Although I’m wearing black on black the shiny effect of the jeans against these vibrant orange and yellow flames create the ultimate contrast of textures and gives a real sense of movement. You can never have too much black so on top of that I threw on my black faux teddy bear coat and accessorized with more black.

Moral of the story is that even with all black everything, you can still play with textures to bring life to an outfit.

Hey guys, what’s new? Just another day for you too then? As we all know Valentines day is today and even though I’m partnered I don’t really celebrate this so called “special” day. I honestly don’t see what’s the point when you have 24/7 365 days a year to make the one you love happy. Anyways moving on, whether you’re all lovey dovey in love or forever alone here’s a new look to feast your eyes upon that involves just another ordinary day. Once again I’m channeling my inner cowboy. Before we begin let me just add that I recently found a new BIGGER and BOLDER hat that would have been perfect for this look. I wish I could have shot it with this outfit but to redo the shoot would mean discarding these great images (mainly because they are of me). Although it makes me sad that I found true love in hat form after this shoot, the show must go on!

Let’s start things off with these jeans. As you all know I like my black skinny jeans but these baby’s bring something new to the table. With their cool lace-up lattice detail they bring that extra edge whether it be rock ‘n’ roll or cowboy couture.

With these jeans I’ve tucked in a white vest with this long sleeved shirt on top. I love cacti so much that it only made sense to wear them too! Obviously not the real things but you know what I mean. There’s a good way and a bad way to make a printed shirt and clearly this one has ticked all the right boxes. These quirky print shirts can always go badly with the outcome of them looking tacky and cheap but the use of subtle colours, fabric and great imagery the overall look of this shirt and its quality is far from that.

Lets move on to these boots. These boots were made for walking, better yet stomping all over the competition. These black leather harness boots are now one of my favourite shoes to wear. Not only are they comfortable, they make a great accessory especially with the ring on the harness. I’m like a magpie when it comes to shiny things! With the boots being leather it made sense to wear more leather which is where this double buckle leather belt and faux leather jacket come in overall creating another western inspired look. What do you think?

I hope you like it and until next time, have a good week and expect loads of Valentines day posts!

Hey guys, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a good lead in to the new year. Hopefully I’m not the only one when I say that I wasn’t in the spirit this year so I’m going to skip straight past any festive posts and give you a look that I’ve been meaning to post for quite some time now.  I’m sure you guys have noticed that I haven’t been posting much lately mainly down to the fact that I have been dealing with the most difficult time in my life. Due to that I decided to take a break but I am back now so here goes.

To start off the new year here’s one last look from 2016. New year, old me! To help welcome the New Year I have acquired the help from a good friend and fellow blogger Priya from Priya Renoo Designs. As we both work together and have lives outside of work its very rare that we are both free the same day. Even though we do work together we never have time to catch up so I guess this day was a blessing in disguise.

Obviously we planned ahead and decided to take a trip somewhere new and went to Kyoto Garden in Holland Park. This Japanese memorial garden inspired us to create looks influenced by Far Eastern culture which is in trend at the moment. For My look I used a lot of basic representations of Japanese traits. As you can see I’ve used a few embroidered pieces in this look. Let’s start with the jacket typically known as a souvenir jacket or ‘sukajan’. Originating in post-WWII Japan, these jackets were commissioned by American soldiers to commemorate their time overseas  which included vibrant, elaborate hand-crafted designs, mixing both Eastern and Western themes. Japanese/chinese dragons, tigers, koi, cherry blossoms and military iconography, making them a great fashion collab. This satin souvenir jacket from Zara has the traditional Japanese waves with a koi fish swimming up stream embroidered on the back. In order to not dim down the jacket, I have paired it with a plain white vest and a black and white mix crinkle shirt. Now, I don’t usually wear blue jeans but these straight leg jeans from Topshop had me sold. Everything from shape, denim colour and the finer details like the shredding and the embroidered birds just drew me in. These little subtle details just tied in with the jacket and completed the look. A great location for a great look.

Make sure you see the full details of Priya’s look and head over to her blog.
