Cosy Knit!!

Necklace: Gift (As much bling as I get)
Jumper: Free People
Necklace: A Gift
Shoes: The Dress Agency

I got this jumper last month as a belated birthday present (love getting a late pressie makes it last longer) from my cousins from the US. It's from Free People, my new favourite shop since my trip to the states in summer this year! I've had good wear out of it already! Definitely one of my favourites in my wardrobe this winter!! Hope you are all in the christmas spirit!!

Palazzo Pants: Gok for TU
Peace Necklace: Urban Outfitters
Top: H&M
Shoes: DP (Below: Can't actually see them)

Block Shoes: Dorothy Perkins

Ok, so being a poor student I have zero money in the bank but somehow I think I am richer than I am, alot richer. I cannot stop buying clothes, shoes, accessories (you get the picture), and I have christmas presents to buy. eek! Anyway I bought these shoes online a few weeks ago, and I had forgotten about them! It was pretty exciting when they did arrive! They're from Dorothy Perkins, where I haven't bought shoes from before but I love these!  slightly different for me which is good, and higher, so when I go out with my girlfriends in these I wont just come up to their hips! I think I'm going to get a lot of wear out of these bad boys!! In the pics I'm wearing them with my Palazzo pants I got from Gok Wan's collection at Sainsburys! Got bit of a 70's look going on with these pants and I love the colour of them, and the shoes are perfect with them which you cant really see in the pictures!

January 2012

Front Cover: Chloe pleated silk
satin dress.
Marchesa Embroidered chiffon dress
Well it isn't January 2012 yet, but I did receive my monthly subscription to vogue and wow! Florence Welch (I may have a slight girl crush)! The front woman of the amazing Florence and the Machine is on the front cover and it certainly is one to start the year! I would love to have a rake through her wardrobe!! Throughout the shoot, the talented Mario Testino captures her wearing beautiful gowns by, Marchesa, Lanvin, Alexander McQueen, Jenny Packham and a beautiful vintage dress from Vintage Modes, Grays Antique Market.  I haven't yet read through it all but I think once I finish uni for the xmas festivities, I'll curl up on the sofa and have good read! Make sure you all get your copy!!!

All For Me!

Top: Cos
Collar: Cos

This top is awesome, it is so comfy and versatile, as you can dress it up or down! The collar is really sweet and can make a simple dress look a bit more exciting! Cos is a high street store who describe themselves as,

"high end design and good quality at an affordable price," 
pretty much describes my ideal shop! 

Knitted, Faux Fur Coat: Zara
This coat has been my saving grace since the winter weather has hit, and it looks very chic with my long leather gloves (if I do say so myself)! I do love wrapping up for winter! 

Deena & Ozzy leo shoes: Urban Outfitters 

I was in Glasgow the other week with my mum, granny and sister to get some xmas shopping done! However I had some birthday money left over from October,  which was burning a hole in my wallet as you can imagine! Therefore I bought more belated birthday prezzies for myself rather than getting much needed xmas prezzie for my nearest and dearest, ooops! So here are a couple of item I purchased!! I've been looking for a pair of flats that I can wear with trousers and with tights. Whilst having a good rake in Urban Outfitters I came across these leopard beauties, they are so comfy! 

Hope you've had a lovely Monday!

Another Collaboration!

With the excitement of the H&M Versace collaboration now fading, H&M have announced yet another collaboration but this time with the luxurious Marni.  The collection is said to come out March 8th 2012 , so by the time xmas is over with, Marni will be at our finger tips before we know it! Marni's designs for H&M will include there signature tribal fabrics which I love (so very excited about that!) and there will be pieces that will be great for layering!! From the sneak peeks there appears to be a playful element to it!
Well I'm counting down the days till March 8th, lets just hope they will sell it in the Aberdeen store this time!

The Dress Agency

Sweater : Escada
Skirt : See by Chloe
Necklace : Jewels

My mum owns The Dress Agency, in Aberdeen. A dress agency is for those who are not familiar with the concept, sells pre- owned designer or high end of the high street clothing. Not only can you grab yourself a bargain, but you can take those unwanted impulse buys, and The Dress Agency will sell the garment on your behalf. So as you can imagine I am in my element, and get some gorgeous quality, different clothing that with its original price tag I would not be able to afford being a student! The skirt is See by Chloé and the sweater is Escada and surprise, surprise both are from the shop. The skirt came in and I had to have it as in summer I wore it with a silk tank and now it's getting chillier this knit is lovely and cosy! So if you happen to be in Aberdeen pop in and grab yourself a bargain!

Halloween/ 21st Party

I just thought I would give you all a laugh with my costume for my 21st Halloween party I had two weekends ago! Maybe I should get a perm and go from blonde to red?

New Purchase

Black Top : H&M
Skull Scarf : Alexander  McQueen
Faux Leather Trousers : H&M
Leopard Chelsea Boots : Dune

Hello everyone sorry it's been a long time since my last post, I've just been crazy busy!!  
The other week I was down in Glasgow and spotted these amazing chelsea boots from Dune. I can fully justify this purchase (which makes a change) of £95 as it was my 21st last month and had cash burning a hole in my wallet. They are surprisingly comfy so can be worn during the day as well as hitting a dance floor or two. I've teamed them up with a few other recent purchases from H&M, the faux leather trousers are super comfy as they have a strip of stretchy material down the sides. I love these trousers because I can never find trouser/ jeans to fit me so I'm so delighted that I may buy another  back up pair just incase. And finally my lovely McQueen skull scarf was a gift for my 21st from my girlfriends, it just goes with everything, if only I could afford to buy one in every colour!

Something New

I'm new to the world of blogging, and I have to admit I have found it a bit daunting getting my first post typed up as I was feeling that I'm simply just not cool enough, ha ha. So, cool enough or not, here it is.
As I sit wrapped up in my beloved Slanket on yet another miserable, cold, rainy day in Aberdeen I think to myself what it is I want to say about a subject I think about everyday… Fashion! 
Fashion is so diverse and has so many areas to be covered and discussed, that I will tend to blab in my blog about anything and everything I feel fashion is. 

It's been a long time coming but there we have it, my very first post, on my very first blog! I hope you all enjoy it and you will be hearing from me very soon!
