So Wrong, It's Right?

It's been a while since I've properly blogged. I've been busy and working, however with Fashion Week coming up next month for me (and yes I don't know what I'm wearing, and yes it's going to be a last minute job) I've been browsing around the net for bits and bobs which I can add to my wishlist.
I love quirky as much as the next fashionista and those little gems which others call ridiculous. So here's my sum up of my 'so wrong, but so right wishlist' -

So Wrong, It's Right Wishlist




1 // Always had a hidden love for Kenzo, and with my current obsession with 'eyes' at the moment, this TSHIRT is a huge want for me. Just trying to get around justifying £80 for a tshirt..

2 // UNIF is one of those websites I come across one day and say to myself "why haven't I known about this before?". The site is full of holographic, funny catch lines on tees, tie dye and to die for 'all goth' two pieces and swimwear.

3 // Like Sophia Webster, Charlotte Olympia is somewhere I'd love to buy all my shoes from.. and bags, but with this student budget it's near impossible. However this clutch bag is what I have been wanting for a while, but me being a bargin hunter I was able to find a copy for £15 on Ebay!

4 // I love Celine and there style of 'ugly sandals'. ASOS have created a knock-off pair, which come in black and floral. Bit of a no brainer for me.

5 // Charlotte Olympia is still my hotspot for clutches. With my little obsession with eyes (hence the kenzo top) I feel this is something I need to just to fill that gap in my heart. har har.

6 // I'm all about wearing bright lipstick and trying new makeup, so once I heard about freckle pencils being the next big thing (and yes it has it's potential) I was pretty onboard with it. Emma Watson is one of the first stars to use this little gem, which can now be brought from Topshop!

FROSTIES PLEASE!

I love quirky. I also love 'knock-off's' and Ashish as well. So when I saw this collection hit fashion week beginning of this year I was dead excited and craving a bowl of COCO pops. Anya Hindmarch showcased her A/W collection, filled with knock off COCO pop clutch bags, 'have a nice day' print and Frosties totes. Think Moschino and ASHISH, this was a collection I was on board with.
Although I would love to own a bag from Hindmarch (preferably the 'crisp packet clutch'), I know I don't have a spare £700 lying around *sigh*. However once I heard about A/W collection being showcased on Mount Street in form of a mini-mart, I had to go!

From pacing up and down Mount, Bond and Oxford Street (going against my temptation along the way) I finally found it. Vibrant, bold and looks like something out of a movie set the store has hit on target and detail of the collection. A big visit this summer I advise to visit! Additionally, you can also buy a '99 flake', I mean what more could you want?

WANDERINGS: london

Working 7 days a week is taking it's toll, so sorry for lack of updates.
Last week, I was able to go to the private viewing of one of the many exhibitions in the streets of Bricklane, London. Called WANDERINGS, it was about bringing young, up and coming artists from around the world to show what they are passionate for and love. It was inspiring to look around with themes from fashion to travelling, to more personal ideas.

WANDERINGS took place at Rag Factory, Bricklane on 17th - 20th July.

I have my mini review here on MESS MAG. take a read.








A highlight for me was the graphic/pop art fashion illustrations by Carlotta Cerpex. Her main inspiration was herself, what she has seen, understood and passion for the art of fashion.

Tailored Paradise

Well, it's a been a little while hasn't it? I've been very busy, as I have a intern placement at LK Bennett. 7 days of a week, is slowly becoming a norm for me! However, I need to post this up, as I am advising everyone to look on Missguided's sale. There is some absolute steals on there, which could save you those pennies this summer.
Example of this? I got these tailored midi length trousers for £9.99 reduced from £19.99. Myself is trying to go for a more, laid back, classier look so this was a perfect place to start. White trousers are taking highstreet stores by storm this year, and are perfect with a printed top or even some colour blocking.
I've put mine with this River Island steal crop top which was £12.00. I originally brought this for festivals, but put with the right things, can give also classy style. Now all I need now is a white blazer..







Before I go, can I just express my love for my new sunglasses? They are incredibly.. sassy! £16 from Topshop.

INTERVIEW WITH JONATHAN DANIEL PRYCE

While I've been away and working for my little side placements, which I am enjoying incredibly, alongside my other opportunities I was given the chance to interview Street Style Blogger Johnathon Pryce @ www.garconjoe.com. Myself being a huge of fan of street style photography, I could not wait to hear what he has to say. Additonally, he also help create the project 100beards, and with my love of beards (and Ricki Hall) this is something I was dying to hear about!

Read my interview here at FATHERDUCK LONDON.

Insta-June

It's been a busy month June, I've completed my first year at University, which was successful, and I am home for summer. With that I'm back at my job, bagged myself a PR intern-ship at this outstanding brand called FATHERDUCK, which I start mid-july, and I've picked up a few bits and bobs on the way. However it's only beginning of summer, who knows what instore next for me? Here's what I've been up to this month;


ISEEDAISY is growing, and if you don't know this is my own litte side hobby I have. Home-made sunglasses anyone?



I was lucky enough to grab tickets for AM at Finsbury Park. I know this was late may, but deserves a part in my Insta-June. It was incredible night, and I'm even more excited to be seeing them again in August.



If you are taking a trip to sunny Nottingham one day, then make sure you visit HOPKINSONS, by the trainstation. It's 3 floors of Vintage heaven, including a cute little tea shop. With massive bargains and one offs (even decor) you have no excuse. 


With my HOPSKINSONS experience, I left with a mini tea set for £3.50. I have a slight obsession with tea-party themes at the moment. 


Kicking off festival season for me, I was able to get a ticket for Parklife, the big dance festival in Manchester. Fabulous weekend with a few appearances of Snoop Dogg, Bastille and Foals.



I have given in and finally got a pair of sliders. *gospel sings*. From seing them all over LCM week, and in Givenchy, I have been wearing my pair more and more. A big must have for this summer everyone!




ISEEDAISY has been successful, with many styles in demand! (including this pair). So I created a batch of these. What do you guys think for Reading festival eh?



Home sweet home. Home bed > University Bed, oh you have been missed.

Topshop Glow Mousse / My Verdict?

Incase not many people know, and me being a employee for the brand, I know for  fact Topshop make-up is extremely underrated. Many of our consumers instore chose not to splash out on the lines, however I can quote they are a top investment to your makeup bag. Created by the makers of MAC and Chanel make-up, Topshop make-up not only keeps colours up to date with trends, but also has little exciting bits and bobs for when going out or adding a bit of shimmer to your look.

Today's purchase was Topshop Glow mousse. I've been wanting to try it for ages, so finally getting it, I was urging to put it on. I chose to go with the line Gleam, a bronze tone. I chose this colour purple for my brown hair, as I'm always putting on brown blusher to create more of a sun-kissed look to my face. This colour fits perfectly with my daily outfits, and perfect just to turn a dull mascara  to a little spark to your eyes. trying it out, I noticed this can be used for CHEEKS, not just eyes girls. Putting it on was easy, with a light touch of the mousse with my finger i was able to get enough to cover my eyelid. Starting from the inner part of my eyes to the outside of my eyelids, I created a fading affect with simple strokes.

This was effective, and not a lie, I've been adding this to my morning routine for the past week! However, beware as I found after a while the mousse can fade, clumping into the folds of my eyelid. This can not be a good look, so my advice is to pop a little bronze eyeshadow over the top to keep it fresh. Another downside I must put out, is it can be a little greasy, so make sure clean hands and clean hands after use is a must, or you're going to be seeing glitter everywhere!

ALSO! Don't follow me ad just use these for your eyes, it is for cheeks to, which it works much better for!

Anyway that's my little make-up 'review' shall I say? Want this? Grab it online and in store @ Topshop for £9.00!






enjoy! xx
