I’m not a fashion blogger per se, but I do enjoy fashion. From time to time I share things I’ve recently worn, wishlists, etc. Mostly charity shop items, but some new pieces too. Want to work with me on a post? Email me!

modcloth dress love

fashion by

as a lady who loves dresses, modcloth is a perfect place for me. although i have no £’s to spend, i often browse through their site to see what dresses i could be wearing. for me, the main pull of their shop is the styles they have on offer. they have a keen eye on a vintage aesthetic, so if you too are the sort of person who is into vintage/retro stylin’, particularly of the 50’s and 60’s era, you must definitely have a look around at the very least. (they do also have actual vintage pieces, but you will need to sign up to see those.) as well as lovely dresses, they have shoes, accessories and home stuff too, but i want to focus on dresses.

aqua by aqua

fashion by

i recently came across a fashion brand called aqua by aqua and some of their items immediately caught my attention, so i just had to share. i love their bold, graphic and minimal style with a colourful but restricted colour palette. i’m a huge fan of patterns and print in fashion so these two pieces below definitely appeal to me in that way. i also like that everything in their collection is nice and fitting. i really like clothes that are well tailored and compliment a figure, as well as the sleek hair and make-up.

more bits and pieces.

following on from this post about my favourite bits and pieces, here’s some more photos i took of some of my favourite accessories (aside from brooches of course); rings and flowers for my hair. is there an actual name for these?

i’ve worn a flower in my hair for years now, and my head feels empty without one. i used to have a beautiful white one that looked like a real flower, but i lost it, which i’m still kind of upset about as i’ll probably never find one the same. i would love a few that look more life like, but they’re obviously out of my price range at the moment. if i don’t wear flowers, i wear my peacock headband, but i don’t have a photo of that. i always seem to get a lot of compliments when i’m wearing it too, so that’s kind of a bonus.

bits and pieces.

for a while i’ve wanted to do a photo post with some of my favourite little things, but for some reason i never got round to it. so, as it was sunny today i took some photos! actually i took quite a lot, so i’m saving the others for another post so i can spread them out a bit.

it’s weird how you can look at things in real life or photos and even if you like them, or they’re visually appealing to you they essentially they mean nothing to you. but for the owner there’s often great sentimental meaning, and that is something that doesn’t transfer across. yet at the same time, if you buy something instead of being given it, initially it often has no meaning, but over time you get used to seeing it ..or something happens and you associate that object with that moment or memory.
