Nine Lives













Jacket - Nine Lives
Top - Nine Lives
Trousers - Primark
Boots - ebay

Nine Lives is one of those cool brands. You know the ones that are understated but make a statement, that look like you've made an effort but only take a minute to throw on. 
So naturally, when you're asked to test out a super cool brand, you can hardly refuse. 
The t shirt is a lovely and soft simple piece. Something to easily dress down with jeans and leather jacket or up with a skirt and heels. One of those staples that I'm always in need of, especially when the quality is this good.
My heart however, truly belongs to this jacket. I feel like I'm waiting for my motorbike riding boyfriend outside a dimly lit motel, ready to drive off into the sunset singing aerosmith. The patchwork and embroidery is just the right amount of detail, to make that simple outfit underneath look instantly badass. 
If you're in search of a rock&roll statement t shirt or jacket, I highly recommend a click through Nine Lives, especially as the festive season is just around the corner.
Merry Christmas to me.

Which piece would you wear?

Boohoo; dress of the month




dress - Boohoo
boots - New Look
hat - Missguided
bag - vintage

I'm a complete advocate of trying new things. Food, places and music genre. Clothes though, I tend to stick to what I know.
But when I was contacted by Boohoo to style up a dress I hadn't picked, I was intrigued. The idea of trying something new seemed really appealing and I was actually pleasantly surprised by the outcome.
It's part of their Dress of the Month campaign ft. new bloggers and new outfits each month. Trying something new has made me think a little differently about picking outfits a little out of my comfort zone.
Inspiration for this outfit comes from my summer dreams of road-tripping around America, shielding my eyes from the sun and spending evenings in smoky bars and watching the sky. 
I'm looking forward to a browse and seeing where abouts another outfit will take me (hopefully there'll be sun.)

Would you let someone else pick an outfit for you?

Fashion fades StyleWe is forever





jumper - StyleWe
jeans - Zara
coat - H&M
bag - vintage




jacket - StyleWe
trousers & top - Primark
boots - Lightinthebox

Remember when I got that skirt? That was all courtesy of a little website called StyleWe, or more accurately, a little slice of fashion heaven. An Aladdin's cave of designers with an absolutely huge range of styles. 
So obviously, when they offered to collaborate, I couldn't wait to dive in and pick out some pretty pieces.

This jumper very quickly became a staple within my wardrobe. So simple, but that little pop of green on the back adds just enough to make it a really interesting piece. I'm really enjoying little touches of colour in my desaturated wardrobe to give outfits that much needed lift.

Oh my word, I cannot get enough of this jacket. I spotted a velvet blazer in Primark when I was hunting for Halloween attire last week and so have been ahem, crushing on velvet ever since. This jacket is one of those throw-it-over-your-most-boring-outfit-and-make-it-instantly-amazing pieces. A true statement gem and it's black so I obviously am infatuated.

Would you wear either of these pieces?
