A Cute Dress & Fishnets

| DRESS: TOPSHOP | JACKET: TOPSHOP | TIGHTS: EBAY BOOTS: MISS SELFRIDGE 
Heya! It's me again. I know I've been terrible and haven't posted in forever but I'm here posting this outfit because after wearing this very outfit at work and having a couple of the girls say 'you need to blog this outfit' I think you should take it that as a hint to post about it! So if you've been following me for a while you would most likely know that I don't really do the whole 'girly girl' kinder thing when it comes to my outfit builds. I enjoy making outfits my own by jazzing them up with a chunky boot and a leather jacket (in this case) or even throwing on a oversized hoodie or denim jacket. I've noticed the whole ruffle, frill and lace layering and bibs style is coming in and being showcased everywhere at the moment but being a girl with a big chest and not so girly I wasn't completely sold on the idea of investing in this trend until the other day when going into my local Topshop and I laid my eyes on this dress. Not even going to lie I walked around that store for about half hour holding the dress trying to decide if I needed it or not while also trying to figure out what the hell I would wear it with to make it my own. With some convincing from one of my friends I took the dive and bought the damn dress, plus many other things... Topshop is a dangerous place to be with payday around the corner plus having staff discount, things just happen to slip into your shopping basket. Shit happens as some say.So with that all being said I made this dress my own by pairing it with my leather jacket which I picked up from Topshop in Oxford Circus about a month ago and I can't lie, doing this almost made me miss my train back to Cardiff because I got too distracted and engrossed with their sale. Oopies but was totally worth it though, just look at how wonderful it is! Another trend that I'm completely inlove with is fishnet tights! it's a thang and I'm enjoying it as I feel like I can show off my slutty side but in a sly way LOL JK but I can't lie I've been wearing them at lease twice a week even though we really haven't had the weather to do so, but you've got to live life on the edge a little specially when it comes to fashion! Then at last I've got my Miss Selfridge boots on, yup you've read right these bad boys are from Miss Selfridge it took me a little off guard too. I've been on a hunt for a while looking for the perfect boot that can be worn all year around and I truly believe these are them, I adore that they have the cut outsides ready for summer but I can also show off my slutty ankles in my fishnet tights this season, hehe. I've also noticed that metal hardwear and buckles on boots is also a big thing this season. Also I would like to add these boots are super comfy I highly recommend them to anyone thats looking for a good pair of boots, plus their only £49 at the moment.
I finished the overall look with a red lip and a neutral eye as I didn't want too much to draw away from the dress detailing. I would love to know how you would personally style this dress to make it your own.
Much Love, Charlotte

Pink Gamer.

 | SWEATSHIRT: PRIMARK | SKIRT: TOPSHOP | TRAINERS: STAN SMITHS ADIDAS | BAG: VIVIENNE WESTWOOD |

HEY!
So if you've been following me for a while you know that I'm a bit of a gamer.... to the point I have a playstation tattoo, yes you read that right but that story is for another day! So moving right a long with that new bit of information for ya this sweatshirt purchase makes sense. Well kinder. Let me explain this purchase to you.
So on top of me being a bit of a geek and love playing Call of Duty I've also noticed recently that printed sweatshirts are everywhere this Autumn/Winter. I've seen them on catwalks, on bloggers and oh course on the high street. I've been expanding my Autumn/Winter wardrobe and been looking at buying some key on trend pieces, specially a printed sweatshirt but I didn't want to purchase any old sweatshirt I wanted something that screamed at me and this one just did that! I picked this bad boy up at my local Primark in the men's department for just £12. My favourite thing about this sweatshirt is that it as print going up the sleeve which is the main thing about this current trend that we're seeing everywhere.

With the rest of my outfit I wanted to create that girly casual twist that's still on trend at the moment so by doing this I added my wonderful pink pleated skirt and with my Stan Smiths. I wanted an extra pop of colour so I paired my Vivienne Westwood bag, I love the clash of pink and red together plus I felt this dash of colour tied this outfit up nicely.

What is your on trend staple piece for this Autumn/Winter?
Much Love

THE LOAFER

So I know I can't be the only person that has seen the Gucci loafers?
Well I saw my first pair on Sammi Jefcoate's Instagram (@sammijefcoate) and I soon became obsessed. She has been rocking a pair of slip on silver Gucci loafers since the start of summer and I just know I needed a pair in my life until I saw that they are selling for around £400+! So you know me, I had to get online and do my typical searching for a dupe, an affordable dupe!
