TAG: Fashion Blogger Questions

This week i decided to do something a little bot different. I found this 'fashion blogger tag' and i thought it would be a fun way to tell you about myself and my fashion habits, but also to learn more about my readers/followers! So here we go...

1. What is your favourite style to wear?
My style is really mixed. I love to grunge things up a lot, but I also like prettier girlie looks. My style is always changing depending on how I feel, and I also love experimenting with different and new looks!
2. Who is your fashion role model?
I'd probably say my mum, she has great taste! In terms of celebrities, I love Miranda Kerr for her amazing everyday looks and Amy Adams for her red carpet looks.
3. What do you always have on?
My sunglasses. I have really sensitive eyes to brightness, so I'm that weird person that will be wearing sunglasses when its raining if its bright enough...
4. What are your favourite jeans?
My favourite jeans are a black pair from Miss Selfridge. I love black jeans because you can wear them with anything!
5. What are your favourite sunglasses?
My favourite glasses were a pair I got from Aldo last year, unfortunately I stupidly left them at a restaurant. This year I bought a similar pair, which I love, to replace them from Topshop.

6. What are your favourite shoes?
My favourite shoes for the daytime are my Nike Air Force, I love trainers and I love to be comfortable when I'm running around to and from university. For the night time, my favourite shoes are my wedges from New Look, they have been with me for a long time and are so comfortable, I am going to be devastated when they finally give up on me.
7. Who influenced you to write about fashion?
Nobody in particular influenced me. I was at London Fashion Weekend a few years ago watching the runway show and just had this urge to write about it.
8 What is your favourite store?
I absolutely love Miss Selfridge, they're clothes just fit me so well and they are my go-to for jeans! I also love New Look and River Island.
9. Who is your favourite fashion person on YouTube?
I really love Sammi's channel BeautyCrush. She does a lot of beauty, but really awesome fashion lookbooks too.
10. What is your favourite fabric?
I'm not really sure. I know that I definitely hate satin.
11. Who is your favourite model?
There are loads of models I love. For starters, Kate Moss because I love her style. I also love Jordan Dunn and I think that Kendall Jenner is going to be an amazing model.
12. If you had $5,000 to spend on any one item, what would it be?
Probably a handbag. You can get such good use of of bags! I would pick a classic style probably in black so that I could wear it with everything!
13. Heels or flats?
Flats mostly. But there are some outfits that heels will just complete! 
14. What purse do you currently use?
Right now I'm swapping between 2. For a bigger bag I use a shoulder bag from New Look, which I love because of the colour blocking on it. I am also using a smaller, grey, satchel sidebag from Forever21 for when I have less things to carry around.
15. Is fashion in your blood or your jeans?
I would definitely say that fashion was in my blood! My mum and and my grandmother are both as obsessed with shopping as I am. My mum is my favourite shopping partner and I am forever stealing pieces out of her wardrobe; her shoe and bag collection are also to die for!

I tag all of my followers to answer these questions! Comment and let me know if you have done it, I'd love to read what you've said!

Inside My Sisters Wardrobe

Me and my sister Thea have always been close. We are only one year apart in age and so we grew up sharing a room and pretty much doing everything together. We have so much in common, but we are also very different in a lot of ways. One of those ways is our sense of fashion. While we appreciate a lot of the same clothes, Thea is far more adventurous with her wardrobe than I am and I absolutely love that about her, it makes buying her clothes so much fun and she always looks stand out. She loves colours and fun prints, and has a eye for cool quirky ranges, such as her obsession with Irregular Choice shoes, which she mixes with charity shop items. One of my favourite dresses she owns is a stapless Dr. Seuss print summer dress from Etsy! 
Here are some pieces from her spring/summer wardrobe:

Runway In Bloom

L-R: Giambattista Valli, Alberta Ferretti, Emporio Armani, Oscar de la Renta, Dries Van Noten, Matthew Williamson, Mary Katrantzou, Erdem

It may not be the most groundbreaking trend, but it will always be the embodiment of spring and femininity. This spring/summer season florals are back, with the runways in full bloom.  Vibrant patterns were seen on the likes of Matthew Williamson's models, whilst Marni and Dries Van Noten opted for dark florals. Oscar de la Renta displayed more artistic, paint-stroked flowers and Stella McCartney and Rebecca Taylor went floral all over in two piece suits. This year, the floral trend has been reinvented, deconstructed or reimagined so that we have seen the pattern in all shapes and sizes.

OSCARS 2014: Red Carpet Best Dressed!

It's the awards show that everyone has been waiting for, and it did not disappoint. Last night Hollywood's greatest walked the red carpet for the Academy Awards 2014. The show was excellently hosted by the hilarious Ellen Degeneres, and saw some amazing acts take to the stage including Idina Medzel, Pharrell William and Bette Midler. Last night saw some very deserving films take some awards. Mattew McConaughey for Best Actor and Jared Leto for Best Supporting Actor both for their extraordinary work in The Dallas Buyers Club. Cate Blachett looks completely taken aback as she won Best Actress for her turn in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine and Lupita Nyong'o could not hide her delight as she accepted her Best Supporting Actress award. But the award of the night, Best Picture, went to the beautiful and emotional 12 Years A Slave. Not only was it an amazing night for film, but it was quite a night for fashion! 

Here are my favourite looks:

The Ladies:
Nominee Sandra Bullock wearing Alexander McQueen | Jennifer Garner in Oscar de la Renta  | Charlize Theron wows in Christian Dior | Presenter Maria Menonous | Fashion Police's Kelly Osbourne | Nominee Amy Adams in Gucci | Kerry Washington dresses her bump in Jason Wu | Nominee Julia Roberts wearing Givenchy Couture | Naomi Watts in Calvin Klein | Anne Hathaway in Gucci 

The Gentlemen:
Joseph Gorden Levitt in Calvin Klein | Winner Jared Leto in Saint Laurent by Heidi | Nominee Bradley Cooper | The amazing Kevin Spacey

The Couples:
Olivia Wilde and her baby bump  in Valentino with fiance Jason Sudekis | Matthew McConaughey and model wife Camilla Alves | Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in an Elie Saab dress

My Top Looks:

(4) Jennifer Lawrence looks chic in simple but beautiful Christian Dior. The backwards necklace is also a nice touch.
(3) Lupita Nyong'o looked like she'd stepped out of a fairytale in this pretty Prada dress.
(2) Red carpet queen Cate Blanchett in embellished Giorgio Armarni
(1) Kate Hudson looked the epitome of old Hollywood glam in this stunning low-cut Atlier Versace gown, complete with a shoulder padded cape and beautiful woven waist detailing. The dress was matched with sexy smokey eyes and side swept curls. Gorgeous!
