MICHELLE KEEGAN FOR LIPSY PRESS DAY



MICHELLE KEEGAN FOR LIPSY

A few months ago I attended the Michelle Keegan for Lipsy press day! It was definitely a very fancy affair, held in one of the luxury hotel suites at the top of the Me Hotel in London. I have to thank the lovely PR girls at Bank Fashion for the invite! I've been to the Me Hotel a few times and it never fails to disappoint, its a great places to stop off at for some nibbles whilst at LFW as its very near Somerset House. I also love wandering around inside, its like a very posh elegant maze, which kind of reminds me of a modern day version of the Ministry of Magic department of Mysteries.

As for the collection, despite Lipsy not being the type of brand which I feel suits me (I mean lets be real here haha) saying that, all their clothes always seems to be such amazing quality, and if I was the type of girl that wore pretty cocktail dresses, I'd definitely be shopping there. All their dresses are always so flattering! Last year I acquired a black faux leather dress with embroidered front from the Lipsy Kardashian collection, it fitted me so amazingly well! In fact I have actually kept it in my clothing collection, just incase I ever have anywhere posh to go and I need a fancy dress to wear. My favourite item from this collection was the leather jacket, its soooo gorgeous *dies* the leather (I'm actually not sure if it was faux leather or not) is so thick and it has a "models off duty" feel and I think everyone wants one of those style leather jackets!!

WE CAN'T WE WONT SURRENDER


NEBULA TSHIRT: CHARITY SHOP
TARTAN SOCKS: TOPSHOP
TARTAN JACKET: CHARITY SHOP similar @ TOPSHOP/ MISSGUIDED
DIY GOLD PLATFORM BOOTS/ TRAINERS: CHARITY SHOP + DIY similar @ AMAZON

I should definitely wear this nebula top more often, its my favourite and it goes with everything. I'm just really scared I'll wear it out so I hardly ever put it on!! I think I found it in a charity shop in wales, infact I think it was the same charity shop as where I found my vintage galaxy jumper covered in killer whales, seals and I think there might be a few penguins also thrown in who are all flying happily around in outer space (this is also my favourite jumper, I will have to wear it again very soon!!) I also love this tartan jacket, however I think I'm going to sell it on depop, only because its slightly too big for me. The shoulder pads are on the inside of the lining so I can't remove them, and I feel it makes me look a bit odd and unbalanced while I'm wearing it, the print is so cool though!! Major jacket sadness!!

I AM SO ACTIVE



TIEDYE/ INK PINK PURPLE CROP TOP: *MISSGUIDED ACTIVE
RIPPED JEANS: *NELLY
SPARKLY FISHNET TIGHTS: WE LOVE COLORS
RHINESTONE TRAINERS: CHARITY SHOP

Actually (in reference to the title) I'm pretty much stationary at all times, unless of course I'm at the charity shops. I'd love to be more active though, I've noticed it helps me sleep, which is always good as I'm one of those weird people who can hardly function on anything less than nine hours of sleep. To aid me in my attempt to actually do something active (I want to start running) I jumped at the opportunity to get cute new active wear when Missguided released their activewear collection a few days ago! These crop tops are super cute, I think they go really well with normal outfits, not just 'hey I'm off to the gym' outfits. So I thought I'd pop them into a normal outfit for this particular look! I'm currently obsessed with fishnet tights underneath ripped jeans, and these sparkly ones are so cool!!

IF I TEAR YOU OPEN WIDE TAKE A LOOK INSIDE ARE YOU PRETTY



FLUFFY CARDIGAN: *MEEMEE
CROP TOP: TOPSHOP out of stock similar @ PRETTY LITTLE THING
PURPLE PLEATED SKIRT: CHARITY SHOP similar @ GLAMOROUS/ AMERICAN APPAREL
PURPLE FISHNET TIGHTS: *WE LOVE COLORS
SPARKLY GREEN SOCKS: TOPSHOP
PLATFORM BOOTS: *PUBLIC DESIRE

I am really excited about my most recent collaboration with We Love Colors, they hand dye loads of different types of hosiery and various other items, and seeing as I have a major love for socks and tights, I was totally in my element when the package arrived earlier this week! I got so many different colours and also sparkly glittery fish nets ahh!! So exciting, anyway, today I decided to wear these purple fishnets and create a very purpley look indeed, with some green mixed in, everything needs green! Also I wore this MeeMee cardigan, which is sooo warm, I didn't even need a coat. Also it matches with my hair super well and I have a feeling I will be able to wear it with lots of different clothes because its got so many different colours laced in among the lilac and purple tones!

INSTA UPDATE DEC/JAN

BLEACH LONDON ROSE/ WASHED UP MERMAID
Unfortunately these cute little scrunchie packs have now gone out of stock (the scrunchies were kinda the main reason why I bought them) but I am really excited to try the colours out too, I've heard mixed reviews about Bleach London so we shall see how it goes!

ROCKING HORSE SHOES - EBAY
CHILLI PRINT SOCKS - TOPSHOP (out of stock) similar @ NEWLOOK
I bought these cute little rocking horse shoes a few years ago off ebay, unfortunately they're a bit too small for me and also the buckle snapped off, I got them from a wholesaler so I don't think they were particularly good quality. Originally designed by Vivienne Westwood, rocking horse shoes are super popular in various forms of Lolita fashion, mine definitely look fake when you see real RHS, maybe one day I'll own a real pair!!


SPARKLY VELVET TIEDYE DRESS - AMERICAN APPAREL
I absolutely adore this dress, I really wanted to buy it and now its reduced to $26, I'm soo tempted!!! I'm rarely the sort of person that wears dresses, usually I prefer separates, but this is too nice to miss out on, it combines my two favourite things, sparkly things and velvet!



MOM JEANS: TOPSHOP
POM POM TRIM: EBAY
I actually bought these jeans in a charity shop, and the pom poms were from a market that I stumbled upon a few minutes later (it was a magical moment of pom pom-jean DIYing revelations) but I found pretty much the same pair of jeans from Topshop and also I found lots of Pom Poms on Ebay, I would recommend buying three meters to cover both legs and then you'll have a little bit extra just incase of any mistakes! I stiched mine on by hand, its such a nice relaxing thing to do whilst watching the tv! I think these jeans would look adorable with all pink pom poms or lilac ahh!!


PASTEL FAUX FUR COAT: RIVER ISLAND out of stock similar @ BOOHOO
VINTAGE ANTICHRIST SUPERSTAR BAND TSHIRT: URBAN OUTFITTERS URBAN RENEWAL VINTAGE
SKIRT: WEARECOW VINTAGE LACOSTE (PLEATED SKIRT/ SKATER SKIRT)
WHITE THIGH HIGH BOOTS: EBAY
On the 5th of January it was Marilyn Mansons birthday and I thought I'd post a celebratory Happy Birthday photo!


MOLLY SET: *AGENT PROVOATEUR
I got this absolutely amazing set from Agent Provocateur a while back, I went for the Molly set as I thought it was the quirkiest and most unusual, green isn't a colour one would usually associate with Lingerie, however, I think it works amazingly well in this set, its so elegant! Green is also my favourite colour, so I kind of had to have it! Ive actually just visited the AP website and noticed they're having a 75% off sale which is kinda crazy, I am so very tempted to get the Pheonix Bra because its sooo pretty and rainbow-y! And just think, its coming up to Valentines day, such a perfect time to have a Lingerie sale! I would also totally agree with anyone who popped these fluffy heels into their basket to wear every day of their life ever!

CROP TOP: OH MY LOVE
JEANS: CHARITY SHOP similar @ TOPSHOP
This crop top from Oh My Love is super cute, its actually normally a little less fitted than in this photo, I actually clipped it at the back to make it super fitted, I'm tempted to do it permanently on the sewing machine as I think it looks super good. I've tried to find these temporary tattoos online but I can't find them anywhere! They were originally from the Foot Asylum press team, I shall have to ask them where they found them!
