Monday. Yes!

What d’ya think of my new trainers? I actually bought these a few weeks ago but you’ve been seeing so much footwear from me (especially trainers, which have become a bit of a guilty pleasure for me) that I thought I’d give you a break. Considerate, that’s me! Lol. Anyways, how fresh are these?! I frigging love them. When I bought them, I was on my way to meet some old friends for dinner. When I looked into the shop display as I walked past Office in central London, these beauts were just sat there casually, smiling at me, waiting someone to show them a little love. I tried to ignore them and carry on walking but when I got a little further down the road I just had to turn around. I tried them on and they just hugged my feet and stuck to them, a little like glue would. Funnily enough when I got to the restaurant about 20 minutes later with my new purchase, I found out that all 5 of my friends were running late. Divine intervention perhaps?! :) I’m looking forward to summer just so I can wear these all.damn.day. Woop!

Have a good day peeps!

IMG_5066So, these are the new trainers that everyone seems to be caving into. It’s funny because they aren’t actually new. No, not at all: they were actually all the rage when I was in secondary school, a whole 10 years ago…! But then, as always, the trend disappeared and like clockwise came around again.

They are a little usual in the sense that they aren’t the ‘cutest’ pair of trainers. But hey, what is ‘cute’? And comfort-wise, my oh my! I love them; they’re my new go-to pair when I’m on the run. They are quirky, unusual and admittedly, I do enjoy wearing things that aren’t considered particularly pretty or conventional and convincing people otherwise.

Nike Dunk Sky Hi’s

Nike Hi Dunk Black Women FashionWhen the idea of trainers with heels first popped up last year, I was totally against it. Everything about it just sounded wrong. I’m eating my words now though because I’m seriously lusting over these bad boys. Ideally I’d get them in white: they’d be perfect as a transitional S/S piece. Problem though? But I just can’t seem to find them anywhere. These black ones are okay so I may settle for these. If anyone knows where they have the white ones in stock though, you know what to do…! :)

Trend Alert – Oversize Me.

Most girls I know are pretty scared of sporting oversized items and I don’t exactly find this shocking. So I’m pretty sure that like me you’re feeling a little thankfully for the rise of the oversize this fall.

If I had to chose three words that best illustrated what ‘oversized fashion’ is all about, I’d chose big, bold and bossy. To help maintain that trendy look this fall, I really do suggest that this is the one trend you don’t ignore! For one, it’s really comfortable, looks fierce and, bonus,it’ll keep you warm.We’re not just talking about clothes here to; ‘oversize’ is taking over scarfs, jewellry and bags too.

Choosing the right items to pair your oversize garments will help accentuate your look. A word of advice; always think opposite. Oversize trousers & fitted top. Oversized top & either a pencil skirt or tailored trousers (ankle trousers too!). You get the idea. Remember, what you want to do is compliment the other section. Now go on, try something new today.

Items, from left to right,

Mohair Oversized Wool Jumper – Mango; Anna Dello Russo Bracelet – H&M; Contrast Sleeves Masculine Coat – Mango; Anna Dello Russo Earrings – H&M; Palazzo Pants – Ministry of Retail; D-Frame Acetate Sunglasses -Michael Kors; Oversized Clutch With Bow – Miss Selfridge; Women’s Tulle Skirt – Rundholz; Tall Oversized Blossom Tee – Topshop; Oversized Spot Tights – Pamela Mann; Blue Oversized Shirt – MiH; Anna Dello Russo Leather Boot – H&M; Sparkle Jewel Long Pendant – Accessorize;  Montpellier – Kurt Geiger

As a short girl myself I rarely wear flats, although as I become older I start seeing the appeal of being comfortable over wearing sexy sky-scraping heels. There is quite nothing like slipping into some flats half through a night out. Here is a small selection of evening flats, with a touch of glamour that will do a job of looking good just as well as heels.
