Nike x Confetti Crowd Campaign

Hey guys! I have some megaaa exciting news in today's blog post. As you may know, I am part of a new blogger girl gang called Confetti Crowd with some of my favourite colourful babes. We only launched a few months ago and have had so many fun collaborations already but last week we shot our first HUGE campaign with the sport gods NIKE. Now I'm not much of a sporty spice but even I know this is pretty maje! Nike asked us to shoot their Look of the City collection, a footwear and t-shirt collection which are linked to Paris, London, Shanghai, Milan, Tokyo and New York. My trainers and matching tee represent Tokyo! 

I was quite nervous because it's such a big campaign and a little out of my comfort zone, being that I don't normally wear sporty stuff outside of the gym but I love how we've sassed it all up and loveeee all the girl power vibes right here! Also, how amazing are our colourful/glittery/pimped out hair braids by Keash braids?! 

Anyways, I hope you enjoy our Nike lookbook and if you fancy any of the items in the images I've linked to them under each of my individual looks <3

London Fashion Week AW15: My Outfits


Jacket: Charity Shop
Top: Charity Shop originally ASOS
Boots: Vintage & Customised
Bag: Smoke & Mirrors London




Top: Motel Rocks
Socks: H&M
Shoes: ASOS


I've just got back from a crazy few days at London Fashion Week and I've never been so grateful to see my cats before in my life. It was so cute spending time with my Confetti Crowd ladies every day but Fashion Week is so tiring and I hardly even go to many shows so I don't have much justification for being a zombie lol :/ February LFW is never as good as September because of the weather and this season was overall pretty weird.

Anyway I didn't take many outfit photos for some reason so I've just bunged them into one post! Hope you like them <3 I will be posting the few street style pics I took on Sassy World tomorrow so keep an eye out here.

Shirt: Vintage
Jacket: Charity Shop
Boots: H&M




Hey gals, happy valentines boxing day! Please excuse my scruffy boots, I've worn them nearly every day since I got them and it's about time I put them to rest but how bloody hard is it to find some sassy shoes around here?!

How amazing is my vintage Betty Barclay shirt? I love how crazy and detailed the prints were back in the day, you can't seem to find them quite like this nowadays. Which is exactly why my heart belongs to vintage <3

Is anyone heading to LFW this week?

Hat: River Island
Sunglasses: Vintage
Boots: ASOS
Bag: Smoke & Mirrors London







If you're a long term follower you will know my love for the 70s and this dreamy maxi faux fur coat is the perfect 70s glam rock addition to my wardrobe. Whenever I wear it, older ladies stop me in the street to say how much they love it <3 

Today I am channeling my inner sassy 70s cowgirl/Tigerlilly and teamed the coat with this amazing cow girl printed vintage maxi dress from We are Cow. My hat is completely bent because my cat keeps sleeping in it but it won't stop me from wearing it because I love it so damn much. I need more colourful hats like this in my life, anyone seen any around?

January Wishlist

Clockwise:








Whenever I feel guilty about not doing regular outfit posts I think the solution is to post a Wishlist LOL so here are all my current covets. 

I am DYING over my own wishlist, how amazing are all of these super sassy and fun pieces?! Ichiban clothing is a new brand on ASOS and they have the cutest pieces and are all pretty affordable. Poppy Lissiman & Discount Universe are my two favourite Australian brands and I am currently attempting to save up to buy a couple of pieces from them both! 

So for some reason I'm a bit obsessed with cloud print at the moment and I came across that cloudy fluffy coat on Dolls Kill this morning and had mini heart palpatitations- SO cute <3

Trousers: Vintage
Bag: Smoke & Mirrors London
Boots: H&M




Hey guys! I can't believe it's been nearly a month since my last post :/ No valid excuses really I just haven't really been feeling myself since crimbo after over indulging and now hardly any of my clothes fit me anymore haha.

Anyway, I had a crazy day yesterday hanging with Confetti Crowd, shooting new blog posts and meeting with brands. We were lucky enough to be invited in to Blitz London (cute vintage store in Brick Lane) to pick a couple of pieces and this amazing rain mac was one of my choices. It just so happens to go perfectly with the colours in my Louis Feraud trousers! And of course I had to clash prints with this gorgeous Moschino pink leopard cardi from We are Cow <3

Meadham Kirchhoff Inspired DIY Shoes

Jacket: Love Label
Sunglasses: Vintage
T-shirt: Clio Peppiatt
Jeans: ASOS
Bag & Earrings: eBay
Socks: H&M
Shoes: Irregular Choice & DIY




As you can probably tell by today's outfit post I am currently obsessing over anything and everything pink <3 It's like the older I get the more I want to dress like a toddler! There's so much I could talk about with this outfit but I'm gonna get straight to the point- THE SHOES. So I've been in love with the Meadham Kirchhoff x Nicholas Kirkwood shoe collection since they graced the catwalk a couple of years ago. But let's face it, a self employed girl running a fairly new business is never gonna be able to afford those bad boys! I do feel a bit bad about being a copycat but I just love them so damn much.

I've been really flattered that people have actually asked me to make them some shoes like these but if I'm totally honest it's a bit of a bodge job when you look up close hahaha.  So I thought I would just quickly run over how I did it incase anyone else wanted to try the DIY for themselves. I apologise that I don't have any visuals for this DIY but I literally only made them quickly for a lookbook.

I had an advantage because I already had my Irregular Choice Toffee Splatter platforms that were already rocking the MK vibes so I only had to make a few customisations. I did however originally start working on a pair of plain flatforms so I can talk you through how to rework some flatforms instead.

You need:

  • Lots of glitter in whatever colour(s) you like- also preferably quite a thick grain of glitter.
  • Craft glue (bought from Fabric Land)
  • Bowl for mixing glue and glitter
  • Paintbrush
  • Ruffle trim (bought this one from Fabric Land)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Marabou or faux fur pom poms (bought the marabou from a cheapy £1 shop)
  • A pair of shoes you don't mind experimenting on!


So the most time consuming part of the DIY is the glitter side of it which is why I gave up on the flatforms and just customised my IC platforms instead as I didn't have much time. You need to do several layers of glitter and let them dry in between. First, cover the bottoms of the shoes and anywhere else you don't want to get glittery with masking tape. Then mix up a concoction of glitter and craft glue in a bowl and then paint the flatforms until it's all completely covered. The glue will be white whilst it's wet but will be completely clear once dry. 

Once the glitter is dry, apply another coat and keep repeating this until you're happy with the thickness of glitter. Seal the final coat with just plain craft glue to stop glitter from falling off as much.

The next step for me was to apply the ruffle trim and this was really easy. All you need is a hot glue gun and glue sticks. I started at the back of the shoe then worked my way around gradually glueing the ruffle trim all the way around the shoe then finishing it where I started at the back of the shoe.

The final touch of the shoe is the fluffy pom poms. Mine are literally just marabou trims just wrapped around the shoe with no actual fastening as I wanted to wear them with and without but you could secure yours with a hot glue gun :D VOILA! 

I hope this mini tutorial made sense without any pics, let me know if you try it :)
