Old Dress, New Boots




My printer has had a bit of a work out today. With uni deadlines looming, I am currently printing out my photography folio and various essays. I can not wait until uni is finished!
Today I also made the velvet skirt I was taking about making the other day, I think it looks pretty good but I will let you guys decide when I wear it on Saturday. 
I forgot I had the dress. I think I stopped wearing it as a dress dress because its very short so today I'm wearing it as a day dress with leggings which I think works a lot better. 
So dress - Joy, leggings - River Island, cardigan - Charity shop, earrings - H&M and new boots - New Look. 


Christmas Monday


 It has taken me most of the day to upload because the internet is slow.
Today I had to do a presentation on Ethical Fashion at uni and I am so glad that it's over. 
Tonight I am in Gala because myself and my flat mates are celebrating Christmas early as we all finish uni this week. We went out for a wonderful dinner and drinks and then came back and 
swapped presents - lovely. 
Today's outfit is playsuit (worn as top) - Topshop, skirt - Zara, belt - Dorothy Perkins, necklace and socks - H&M and shoes - Zara.

Procrastinating Sunday




I was meant to do a mountain of work today but instead I had a day of fun, went and bought velvet from the fabric shop, singing lessons and then went shopping with my mum. I'm planning to make a skirt for my work night out with the fabric I bought. I am now sitting down to begin writing Christmas cards. Brilliant but I have done absolutely no work for uni tomorrow. Tricky. Especially as I have a presentation to do in the afternoon...
Anyway, jumper - Dorothy Perkins, dress, hairband, necklace and boots - H&M, belt - River Island.
Hope you've had a good weekend.

Magic Gloves




Sorry for not blogging recently! I've been up to my eyeballs in work. On the plus side it has just been my pay day so I got myself these gloves. They might not look like anything special but I am in love with them. They are cashmere and they have magic fingers so that you can use your touch screen phone with them - amazing.
I've finally started feeling quite Christmassy - I've started my Christmas shopping and tonight I'm watching a Christmas film and writing the first of my Christmas cards! 
Today's outfit is also quite festive - skirt - River Island, jumper - H&M, boots - New Look, 
glasses - Oscar and Fitch and gloves - echo at Jane Davidson.

Exploding Brain



I'm not sure why blogger insists on doing crazy things to a lot of my photos but I kind of like it. Maybe blogger hates my legs!
This week I've been feeling like my brain is going to explode - I have so much on at the moment, I have to do lists coming out of my ears. 
I'm working at a fashion show tomorrow and I have absolutely no idea what to wear - please give me some ideas. 
So today - skirt - Miss Selfridge, jumper - H&M, boots - New Look, belt - River Island, hat - Accessorise and cape - Oakwood at Jane Davidson.

Castaway



I can't believe it's November. I'm sure that we had snow this time last year! It's still cold but look at this sun, its beautiful!
I headed to the beach again today to work a bit more on my fashion film which I think is almost finished so I'll show it to you soon. 
Today's outfit - top - Zara, belt - River Island, jeans - Topshop, socks - Asda and boots - New Look.

Fashion Show





Let me tell you about my very eventful weekend. On Friday, I was assistant styling on 3 photo shoots. One which will be in the Sunday Mail and used for a model agencies' Christmas card (it's top secret but it looked amazing!) and the 2nd two will be in Spectrum magazine. 
On Saturday I was working at the shop and then went on a night out. 
Sunday I was working I worked at a fashion show which was to raise money for an amazing cause. Rachel Appolinari died earlier this year of a brain tumour and now her family are raising money for the hospital which looked after her. It was a very emotional day but the show looked fantastic. Above, there is a photo of Lindsay Campbell the stylist, myself and my friend Rosie along with all the fabulous models from yesterday. Another exciting thing which happened yesterday is that my blog was featured on the Jane Davidson  website. The Scottish Fashion Bloggers council then saw this and then wrote a wee bit about me on their Facebook page which was amazing!
Today I'm wearing Bambi jumper, socks and boots - H&M, jeans - MiH at Jane Davidson, hat - ASOS, belt - River Island and the cardigan is from a charity shop. 
Hope you all had a brilliant weekend.

Crying Thursday




Today I'm sad - I didn't get to H&M in time to get any Versace goodies. Then I wanted to take photos of this Dunmore Scotland bag next to some real life cows but sadly there are not many sunlight hours in Scotland at the moment so was unable to do so. Sad sad sad. 
I'm feeling a little Scottish today wearing tweed, tartan and a highland cow. So the highland cow bag - it's incredibly practical, it can fit my sketch books, laptop and cameras all at the same time. 
Jumper, socks and boots - H&M, belt - River Island, hat - ASOS, trousers - Zara, scarf - Erdem at 
Jane Davidson and bag - Dunmore Scotland.

Long Wednesday



Work today was ridiculously long. However the day picked up when I got a solo song for my choirs Christmas concert which is happening in a couple of weeks. I'm singing 'Ain't No Mountain High' - but right now I still don't know it so am going to have to start practising now. 
Now today I'm wearing hairband - Oakwood at Jane Davidson, jumper - Tesco, skirt - H&M, belt - River Island, tights - Somewhere in France, boots - Office and bag - Dunmore Scotland.

Christmas Coffees



I'm not sure if I'll ever take this scarf off. My blog might become a bit repetitive - ha. 
Sometimes I really enjoy work, today I enjoyed it because we all got treated to Christmas coffees from Starbucks, wonderful. 
Today I saw this beautiful orange knitted hat but unfortunately I have absolutely no money until pay day so sadly had to leave it in the shop. As soon as pay comes around I'm going to treat myself to the hat and then commence my Christmas shopping!
So this outfit consists of, dress - Dorothy Perkins, cardigan - M&S, boots - River Island, bag - H&M, 
hat - Primark, scarf - Erdem and I've borrowed the gloves from my mum and am not sure where they are from.

Short Suit



Hola. I tried making my fashion film today, it's not going well. I definitely will never be a film maker. 
Now this week is very exciting for a number of reasons. Firstly - Versace in H&M = AMAZING. Secondly (it's a bit geeky and uncool) - Breaking Dawn comes out in the cinema and I might be hitting the midnight showing. Then I also have a photo shoot for the Spectrum and a fashion show to look forward to. 
Tonight I am going to stare at Jonny Depp's face in the Rum Diaries.
So today I'm wearing, shorts - River Island, jumper - Tesco, belt - Dorothy Perkins, jacket - New Look, clutch - Accessories, earrings - H&M, shoes - Urban Outfitters and scarf - Erdem.

Erdem Scarf




This is my beautiful new Erdem scarf which I won in a competition at work yesterday at work. Erdem has been one of my favourite designers for a long time and I am always lusting after his clothes, but unfortunately I can't afford any of them. So, as you can imagine I haven't stop smiling since I got this beauty. It comes straight from his pre Spring/Summer '12 collection. Yes, you heard right S/S stuff is already hitting the shop floor before we've even had winter. Mental. 
This morning I went to the beach to do more work on my fashion film. Once again it was absolutely freezing but I really enjoy going to the beach whatever the weather. Beige suede shoes are not a good call for sad though. 
So with my beautiful scarf I am wearing, skirt - Zara, jumper - Primark, belt - Dorothy Perking and 
shoes - Urban Outfitters.

Top - charity shop, shorts and boots - New Look.
Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend!

Ms Bradshaw


 


So today I'm channeling Carrie Bradshaw. I'm also feeling like a proper grown up in this outfit. I wore this for work today and was roasting hot while I was running up and down ladders putting up the Christmas decorations. CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS! Madness. 
Poppy for today.
Jumper and shirt - H&M, jeans - J Brand at Jane Davidson, bag - Chanel and boots - River Island.

Mmmm Sexy Photo



So in the 2nd photo I was pretending to be a whale for some reason. Good.
I think I've mentioned this before, every year my family stages a scene for our family Christmas card. The final product arrived today and I could not be more excited. So excited in fact that I have already given one out!! I will definitely show you a picture of it nearer Christmas. I still can't believe that Christmas is just around the corner, I feel like this year has flown in. 
Now today I'm wearing...top - Next, shorts - Primark, boots - River Island, hairband - Accessorise and necklace and earrings - H&M.

Glitter




Tonight I'm teaching Zumba for the first time in a few months and I'm really excited! 
Today I put on my outfit - orange jeans - Zara, belt, shirt and boots River Island and necklace and earrings - H&M. But it just didn't feel sparkly enough so I added in this disco ball hat which is also from River Island. 
Please leave your comments because I love reading them.

Winter is Coming






Today my plans did not go to plan. I wanted to go to yoga but didn't. I also wanted to start filming my fashion film but that didn't work out either. So all in all a very unproductive day. 
Although in the midst of all this un-productivity I did manage to find my perfect little black dress. I need  one for work fashion shows etc. I can't believe I've never had one before but I've always found it so difficult to find one. The one I bought is not only perfect but was also super cheap! I'll do a post of it sometime soon.
It's starting to get really cold now, but I braved bare legs for perhaps the last time. Today's outfit - skirt - charity shop, jumper - somewhere in Florida, socks and necklace - H&M, boots - New Look, belt - Dorothy Perkins and coat - Next.

Scotland on Sunday








Today I was wearing a skirt with this outfit but I must have eaten too much because the elastic in the waist burst. So I hope you enjoy the photos with the newly improved outfit. 
Yesterday, a job I worked on a few weeks ago was published in the Scotland on Sunday newspaper. On the front page of the article they credited me as the photographer, which is a mistake. As you can imagine, the actual photographer was not happy. I think that the shoot came out beautifully and I am so pleased with it. I was also credited as the assistant stylist which is really exciting! Please let me know what you think of the photos.
So today's outfit, playsuit - River Island, cardigan - Anthropology, belt - Dorothy Perkins, necklace - H&M, boots - New Look and I can't remember where the socks are from. 
Please leave your comments because I love reading them.
