Day and Night : Tropical print playsuit - transparent crop top


Denim Shirt : Charity shop
Playsuit : Primark
Belt : Moschino via charity shop
Backpack : Primark
Sunny G's : Primark
Trainers : Nike 
Earrings : Topshop and Paks
Bindi : ebay



 What is it with the heat in London at the moment? It feels like Barbados! I thought I'd dress appropriately in as little as possible. I borrowed this cute tropical print playsuit off my sister, I love it, reminds me of those vintage Hawaiian shirts in playsuit form. I HATE my upper arms as well so I threw on this oversize denim shirt I cut the sleeves off over the top and HEY PRESTO flabby arms are gone :) !





Jacket : Vintage Nike via Ebay
Top : DIY from tights
Disco Pants |: American Apparel 
Heels : H&M
Necklace : Peacocks

I went out the other night, my lovely boyfriend took some pictures of me after I got ready, taken with a phone camera sorryyy! I'm seriously clutching at straws at the moment, making a top out of tights a la goth. Skint as hell. And I'm SO glad I got another chance to wear my H&M neon heels, those bad boys were so worth the £24.99!! So all in all I was actually going for the 90's - hoochie mama - could be a member of some forgotten R&B girl group look, success? I think so :)

Now I've joined the 21'st century in the phone department I now have Instagram , my username is Frankiegd , let me know your username and I'll follow yours?

Been a pretty productive week in terms of finding stuff I'm dying to buy and can't afford as well... may as well share a bit of the torture with you guys :D




  1. Studded clutch : £8  SelectHERE - SO CHEAP and so similar to the Topshop and Zara ones, for a fraction of the price GIMME!!
  2. Gold toe cap heels : £16 Matalan HERE - Only £16 need I say more?
  3. Samsung Galaxy case : £4.29 Ebay HERE - Just bought this cutie for my new phone, love the bright colours.
  4. Backpack : £30 River Island HERE - You may have noticed I'm loving backpacks at the moment!
  5. Leather sleeve jacket : £60 LavishAlice HERE - I missed the boat on the Zara version but I would happily settle for this one, I want a denim one with leather sleeves too.
  6. Galaxy Swimsuit : £35 Topshop HERE - I hate to say it but so much cheaper than BlackMilk, it has to be done, sorry sharkies :/
  7. Unif Hellbounds : £175 Urban Outfitters HERE - Still need these in my life, pretty steep but I want to be taller than everybody else SO BAD.
  8. Midi Dress : £32 Topshop HERE - I love a good Midi, animal print is still high on my list of fucking awesomeness and this would look great with my camo jacket.
  9. Fire opal Ring : £8 Dixi HERE - I LOVE opals and this ring is beautiful, when I get paid...

nearly Christmas I guess...

East London Style Bible, Moschino Bumbag and a weekend to remember

I wasn't going to blog today on account of being very bored with nothing interesting to say and all my pics coming out ugly (really should be revising meh -_-) , but then I cam across this article on Vice that tickled me. SERIOUSLY this book needs it's name changed from Worst Fashions: What we shouldn't have worn but did to Mystic Meg/Gandalf I Can Tell The Future East London Style Bible. I think the majority of us (I know I am) are offenders according to this book : 
(Via Vice)

I'm literally sat here at my desk pissing myself laughing, the irony is ridiculous! If you saw my last post you'll probably know I bought a shell suit jacket last week.... oh and this came for me today.

~BUMBAG~

This weekend my friend Emilie came back to London and it was WONKY. We went to The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington for the joint first birthday of Getddownordie and Daruma Vision. From what I remember it was pretty good, although there is a hazy memory of a bouncer shining a light in my eyes and a random helping me outside,  missed the cake fight :( . If he had just let me sleep in the corner I would have been fine eventually..to get the jist of how crazy it was you should probably watch this video :


Then we went to Love Fever with Wolf+Lamb on Sunday afternoon, got the dirtiest looks from the grannies on the bus swigging gin from a  J├Ągermeister  bottle at 4 in the afternoon. Needless to say we had a really good time, this is what I wore:
Top: Primark cut into a crop top , Trousers: American apparel, Socks: Primark, Boots: Dr martens, Necklace: Peacocks.

I know I LIVE in my Disco Pants but really having spent £70 on them I am desperate to get my moneys worth out of them and the go with everything.
Also, for ages ow I have wanted to post a look with my rainbow cardie I thrifted a while back. This is what I wore to watch City beat Man U at the pub:
Cardie: Charity Shop, Dress: H&M, 

Despite one of my friends insisting it's horrid,  I wear it LOADS, it's lovely and warm and bright. It reminds me of my grandma ( I hope she is reading this now she got an i Pad for her birthday... or maybe not sorry Mam). 

I've been thinking I need to change up my hair, I straighten it everyday and it's just looking sad, I can't afford another Brazilian Blowout so I was thinking of doing something like this:



Whatcha think? 

Sadly, I probably won't be posting for some time because I can't stop watching Bleak House and losing my train of thought and should be revising :( 
Love

Styling a goddess, bit of Boy London and a road trip to Newcastle

Last weekend was the best weekend ever! My friend Hanna Hillier called me up and asked if I could style a  photo shoot for her with this AMAZING model Daniela Braga. Daniela was phenomenal, beautiful, lovely and  she has an amazing back catalogue of work; she did Paris fashion week, New York AND she shot a campaign for Givenchy a couple of weeks before the shoot we did!! I was so nervous but I'm really chuffed as the shots actually made it on to the next website. Here are a few of my favourites:




I love how she is wearing my Nikes in thee last shot :)
Despite the language barrier (she is Brazilian) we got along really well, she was so down to earth and probably the most gorgeous person I have ever seen in the flesh.

Then on Sunday I went shopping to Topshop with my dad and his lovely girlfriend, tried on half the shop and got an insane amount of new clothes which I will no doubt be sharing with you in due course. This is what I wore on that little excursion:

Top : Gina Tricot, Jeans : Topshop, Shoes : Underground (My little sister's)

This weekend the much exalted student loan came in - my quality of life has gone  through the roof as a result. First thing I did was purchase this beater (as my boyfriend would call it) from Boy London:


I've been wanting one for ages and I like to think one day my future child will thank me for it. By the way, that is now how I'm justifying my clothing and accessories binging. My mum hasn't really got any of her clothes from the 80's and 90's left due to moving country etc. I am always so jealous of my friends amazing vintage wardrobes courtesy of their mothers, so buying copious  amounts of interesting clothes is my way of helping out my future daughter with hers. 
The beater should be at my house by the time I get back from Newcastle, YEAH BUDDY!!!!

At the moment I'm all the way up in Newcastle for my friends Gabby's boyfriends house night Nocturnal Playground, also I'm told in Newcastle they sell triples behind the bar WTF?? I think tonight might be very messy.




We experienced the delights of  Newcastle today at the Metro Centre, I didn't really buy anything because I literally don't need any more clothes after this weekend but it all right, not as god as Westfield London though mind. This is what I wore during the day:


Top/dress : Topshop , Leggings : Black Milk , Boots : Dr Martens , Earrings : Miss Selfridge

 I apologise for the weird facial expression, I should really start putting a paper bag over my face haha!

This is what I'm wearing tonight when we go out:
Bodysuit : Miss selfridge , Disco Pants : American apparel , Boots : Jeffrey Campbell

I am absolutely DREADING the coach back to London tomorrow afternoon, seven hours in hungover hell, hopefully it will be empty so I can spread out over a couple of seats. Wish me luck

Easter, Bristol, hangovers and DIY : Safety-pin cross T


The past week has been the best I have had in ages, although it has rendered me completely skint.. no I mean dirt poor. I got to go home to Bristol for the first time since January (seems like eternity), got to attend my first Shapes, was pretty good and
best of all it's a night put on by some of my nearest and dearest friends. Loads of amazing people 

Above : Me and Anne Marie drunking it up - Check out her nails SO GOOD!



Despite being of questionable sobriety all night I managed to catch lots of what was going on , I especially enjoyed Pardon my French and of course the Lovely Fuz, threw a lot of SHAPES  Definately check this night out if you are in the West Country soon, the Actual DJ Jazzy Jeff is heading up the next night look here.

jazzy

YES THE ACTUAL JAZZY JEFF


But now I'm back in London and back to work, which may I add is going terribly. Being a shot girl is so hard, I'm not pushy enough for sales, the kind of people who tend  go to the clubs I work in are vile, I really don't like men or the women who are bitchy to me because they think I'm hitting on their scum-bag boyfriends GET A LIFE! The things I do for money hmmmm... 
Sorry rant over. 

Anyway because of my lack of work I have had to reinvent stuff I already have 
like this American Apparel tank DIY with safety pins:


safety pin cross

Pretty self explanatory really, so easy and I LOVE it. Also cracking out the purple lipstick lately has have a great reaction, in the above photo, I'm wearing Revlon - Va Va Violet.

revlon

But anyway today I went to the doctors and decided to dress up seeing as I haven't emerged from my room for 24 hours after Fabric the other night. I don't even know half of what went on, all I 
know is Christian , If you are out there HEEEY MAAAN! 
I love how the tie dye came out in these shorts, pastels are sick ! I wore the oversized sheer shirt to offset the tightness of the shorts/ attempting some kind of volume like the current trend (I naturally gravitate to tight clothes), I did spend the whole day pulling these out of my bum - however I still looked good n'est-ce pas?



Where Is It From ?

Shirt : H&M 
Shorts : Charity Shop £2.50 DIY cut and dyed
Boots : Dr Martens
Cross Necklace: Topshop
 Quartz chain necklace : Borrowed from Anne Marie , thanks man :) 

As I insist every year, I only received Kinder Easter Eggs thanks to my lovely father.
Why isn't everything made of Kinder?
Hope you had a lovely Easter

DIY Tie Dye shorts, crop top and everything else I've recently aquired


Had a pretty hectic couple of weeks had a dyslexia screening (I am seriously challenged in the spelling/writing area), been ill, had MANY uni deadlines, but now I'm free for a bit YAY!! 

 So for the last couple of months I've been dying to get tie dying a bunch of stuff, my dad bought me a bunch of Dylon hand dyes but  hadn't got round to actually dying anything.
Soooo.... after a hungover wonder around Waitrose my house mate Ailbhe beseeched  me to get on with it yesterday and these are the results:






 The results were great! My  favourite is the crop top, I can't wait to wear it, styled with some black cut off Levis, denim  jacket, Dr Martens and my circular sunny G's.
It was so easy.

I used this tutorial but used multiple colours.
The colours I  used in Dylon hand dyes were:

Tropical green
Flamingo Pink 
Ocean Blue
Intense Violet

 All are available in my favourite art shop in Hoxton but are cheap with free postage here on eBay , they have 24 colours I WANT THEM ALL. I also just ought LOADS of studs from eBay, going to stud up my vtg denim jacket and the tie dyed shorts. But in the meantime I NEED TO TIE DYE EVERYTHING I OWN.

I said  I would put up a photo of my new rainbow jumper I got from a charity shop on Roman Road so here you go :


How cool is that !

I also got :


Aztec holey crop top from Topshop


'Smile' belt bought by my lovely boyfriend from ASOS

I apologise for the slight shittyness of this post, I am VERY hungover from a night at The Alibi last night 
These photos pretty much sum it up:




I have no idea who that man is, but he loved the shoes.
I also just remembered I had a dream I was playing football in the street with my friends, as you do, then when the ball went behind the bin and lo and behold I found a pair of ISABEL MARANT WEDGE TRAINERS!!!! Woke up feeling a little disappointed not gonna lie..

I'm going to go watch hunger games 
Have a lovely Saturday :)

Bashmore, Cable, Acton, Library, DONE.


I went to the library and sat there in the silent section on facebook to my friend sitting across from me. How she got 1400 words done I don't know, I read four powerpoint slides.... in my AA Disco 
Pants that's all that matters :)
Where's it from? :

Tank top : Topshop
Trousers : American Apparel Disco Pants
Boots : Dr Marten ten hole
Necklace : Topshop (borrowed)
Earrings : Primark (I know you can't see them sorry)

I had the craziest weekend ever , you don't even want to know what happened. Went to see Julio Bashmore, then to Cable and THEN I ended up in Acton with Emily and Rob and a bunch of people we had never met in our lives (legends) till Monday afternoon. I am seriously in need of some kind of mental treatment for my shopping addiction, it gets worse EVERY DAY. Considering some tartan Jeffrey Campbell Litas, but not sure if they have had their day, I LOVE TARTAN THOUGH!

Not sure ignoring my deadlines and reading a million great blogs is the best way to spend my time but there you go :) Here's a few of my favourites:









Gonna finish watching Alien and go to bed
