OOTN: Catfish and the Bottlemen Gig ♥

   

This weekend, I attended one of my favourite band's gigs. I went to see indie rock band, Catfish and the Bottlemen, with my best friend and two of her uni friends in Birmingham. The gig itself was incredible. However, I thought I'd share with you what I wore on that evening, in order to offer you with some inspo and ideas.

Hey everyone! Here's a little link to my first youtube video! I'm new to it all, but discovering something I enjoy doing has helped me a lot recently, and I'd be grateful if anyone, who would like to, shared this passion of mine with me! If liquid eyeliner is something you struggle to get right, then have a little look at my quick video on how I do my everyday eyeliner...

Metallics SS15: My Top 5 Topshop Picks ♥

My most recent post was on the SS15 trend of metallics, and whilst online shopping I discovered that Topshop have some gorgeous pieces that fit this trend very well. As its nearly the end of the month and pay day is fast approaching, I figured some of you lovelies might be interested in seeing some of my favourite pieces to get some ideas and inspiration.

 P.s. apologies to your bank balances...♥

♥ Metallic Crinkle Cami - £22 


 

First up is this beautiful Topshop 'Metallic Crinkle Cami'. The gorgeous light blue colour of this top adds a subtle hint of colour to any wardrobe - perfect if you're a bit worried about wearing bright colours. It's shimmery crinkle overlay is stunning and absolutely perfect for the summer weather. The top has a pretty, high neckline and is slightly cropped - this adds interest to an otherwise fairly simple item of clothing and will look flattering on most people. This top costs £22 and in my opinion, is far too pretty to leave in store.

High Shine Metallics SS15 ♥

High shine metallics and metal colours have recently been hitting up the SS15 catwalks. Metallics can come in many forms, from highly reflective to more subtle metal-like tones, yet all will add a touch of glamour and boldness to any outfit. I personally would suggest that this trend is more applicable to an evening look, however by all means don't be shy to wear it during the day if you're feeling brave enough. As seen in examples below, the likes of Markus Lupfer and Richard Nicoll have been using the trend of shimmer and shine as a dominant part of their SS15 collections.

Hyper Florals ♥

Another trend set to strive in SS15 is hyper florals. Although florals in spring is usually given some criticism - the Devil Wears Prada quote springs to mind. Well, this year is set to bring the spring florals back in and it intends to be just groundbreaking.

With bold, vibrant colours, and large patterns being encouraged, this trend has lit up recent catwalks. The likes of Stella McCartney, Kenzo, and Leonard have all featured bold florals on the SS15 catwalks this year.

Master the Monochrome ♥

As seen at various fashion shows across the globe, monochrome is yet again set to become a highly popular trend of SS15. The timeless combination of black and white masters the look of sophisticated fashion. This trend has been fully supported on the catwalks this year by designers such as Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham, Carolina Herrera, Ralph Lauren, and many more.

London Fashion Weekend AW15 ♥


   This year I was lucky enough to attend Vodafone London Fashion Weekend at Somerset House, London. For those of you that are unsure of what this event is, LFW is run every year and it is a fantastic opportunity for designers and brands to showcase their work. As an attendee you can not only expect expert style advice and insider knowledge about the upcoming fashion trends, but also pop-up shops, designer shopping, catwalk shows, and hair and beauty talks by industry experts. As a silver ticket holder for the event, I had entry to the event, access to a catwalk show, and a designer tote bag filled with goodies from LFW sponsors. The designer tote bag was designed by well known British brand Pringle of Scotland, who are also celebrating their 200 year anniversary of being in the fashion industry next year. The bag itself was filled with items such as a Maybelline mascara, a gorgeous Essie nail polish, Label M sea salt spray, and more. After collecting my bag, I had the opportunity to browse around the pop-up shops, from brands such as Swatch, Sunglass Hut, Ukelele, and many more. However, the highlight of the day for me definitely had to be THE CATWALK.
