The Leather Look

So I already completely crush on Rosie Huntington- Whiteley’s at the best of times, yet this woman in leather is unbelievable. Obviously I don’t have washboard abs nor legs up to my eyeballs but that doesn’t mean that I can’t jump on the leather wagon, right? Rosie however (we’re on a first name basis) can wear anything she damn well pleases, wobbly bits and price are no issue for her I’m sure of it. So I’ve searched high and low for some gorgeous pieces that are stylish and comfortable, on both purse and body for us “Average Joes”, no offence…

Throwback Thursday

It’s Thursday! So a perfect excuse for a fashion throwback, and this week we are heading back to the 90’s. From double denim to dungarees, the decade blessed us with many fashion  faux pas & phenomenons, but nothing quite as fantastic as tartan being on point.

I have always adored a good plaid. Who knows if it’s my distant Scottish roots or the nostalgia of my first school uniform, a little red kilt (I will find a photo for everyones amusement), but to this day I’m still completely in love with the idea of it. There’s no better time of year than to pull off a cute tartan skirt (summer and spring you would only look silly, and winters a wee too nippy to have those pins out). Here’s some must haves I plan on snapping up.

Clueless” fashion

1. Scarf In Grey Tartan Check, £16, ASOS | 2. Tartan Asymmetric Zip Mini Skirt, £25, £12, River Island | 3. Mamie Boyfriend Tartan Shirt, £25, Missguided | 4. Plaid dress, £35, Mango | 5. Tartan Print Hair Bow, £6, ASOS | 6. Jill Tartan Tailored Blazer, £35, Missguided | 7. Tube Trousers in Tartan Check, £28, ASOS | 8. Checked wool mini skirt, £330, McQ Alexander McQueen (okay so it’s a tad pricey but it is SO cute. It can also be justified as an “investment” as tartan is timeless…right?)

P.s. As co-ords are back in why not go all out and match those checks up top to bottom. There’s no judging here.

Now where’s that Clueless DVD…
