OOTD: The Vintage Jumper

Around 4ish, I was at the train station, sitting next a lady and she suddenly turned round towards me and said 'I love your jumper, where is it from?' I instantly started to laugh because I bought it for about 80p at East End Thrift store, the BEST vintage sale ever! If any of you are ever in London you absolutely must try to go to their fill a bag sale where you can stuff as many clothes into a bag as possible for £10 or £20 depending on size. 

The lady said she loved my whole outfit which made me so happy that I couldn't stop smiling for my whole train journey. 

I bought my skirt from New Look but it was in the sale quite a while ago so probably isn't available anymore. I love this skirt and have been wearing it so often recently because it's so versatile. My beloved Birkenstocks are from Topshop and are only £25! They're super comfy and come in black and white so pretty much go with any outfit.

Lots of love,

Summer Inspiration: Colour

Red means danger.
Black is slimming.
Men shouldn't wear pink.
These are all generalisations about colours and are definitely not true. Colour is key to what we wear and why we wear it; in summer, I like to wet bright, bold, 'happy' colour. So for now it's out with blacks and greys and hello to fuchsia, aqua and lilac. This months inspiration is all about colour!

Lots of love,

Not including designer brands, if I could only wear clothes from one shop for the entirety of my life, I would have to choose Zara. Their clothes are perfectly classic but always have a really cool twist. At the moment they have a sale on which is perfect cause it's my birthday next week which means money money money!

So if you're looking for some awesome summer bargains, I'd definitely check out Zara!
Lots of love,

How to Dress Well on a Small Budget

1. Have lots of basic clothing pieces which are easy to mix and match with almost anything and are suitable for all seasons e.g neutral (black, white, grey) coloured tshirts, lots of jeans and trainers. To make this plain clothes a little more interesting pair them with bold prints and statement pieces of clothing. 

2. Charity shops are the best place to find cheap clothes and if you look hard enough you will always find some amazing buys. Although I've never found anything designer (cry) my friend bought a Calvin Klein coat for £20! Vintage shops are also amazing but can often be expensive; if you live in London Google East End Thrift Store. There you can buy clothes for £1 each or fill a bag for £10 or £20 depending on the size. Although the clothes do smell a bit after a few washes they're good as new ;p

3. If you're not into wearing previously owned clothes, then another way to save money to know when the sales are on. Online shops such as Asos will nearly always have sale section where you can buy your favourite brand's clothes for less. If you happen to live in a city there are nearly always sample sales going on. To find them I usually search them on twitter or Instagram. 

4. Diy is the most fun way to give your old clothes a makeover. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube or diy blogs such as P.S I Made It. Customizing your own clothes is a brilliant way to turn something you hate into your new favourite piece of clothing. 

5. I've never actually won a giveaway competition but I always enter because I might get lucky one day. Loads of blogs host giveaways on a regular basis but so do lots of clothing brands so follow your favourite shops on their social media sites to keep up to date with any competitions they may hold. 

6. One of the easiest ways to make a fairly dull outfit more interesting is to accessorize. When buying jewellery I like to invest in lots of statement necklaces, earrings and rings as it is a simple way to boost an outfit. 

Hopefully this helped some of you :)
Lots of love,
