Dress*: Somedays Lovin’ via OUT & ABOUT
Boyfriend Coat: Primark
Baker Boy Hat: can’t remember >.< ebay?
Crescent Moon Ring: Empty Casket
Crystal Pendants: Empty Casket

I have had this hat for goodness know how long now & I wear it literally all the time so I am pretty hocked that this is it’s debut on my blog. Liam always calls me George (R R Martin) or Patrick (Stump) whenever I wear it (good job he likes both those people ;)) & I do feel like a lost member of the Village People when I wear it sometimes but you know what, I don’t even care, I still love it! ^_^

Anyway, enough about my hat, how amazing is my dress?! It’s by Somedays Lovin’ & I can safely say they are a new favourite brand. Seriously guys, they are way up there with MinkPink & Evil Twin! You all know I love a good smock/swing dress & this one is so on point! The material hangs perfectly & I love the cut out back! Thank you so much Out & About & Somdays Lovin’. Also SL are on ASOS here>>link

I dreamt about you nearly every night this week…

Leather Jacket: ASOS
Paisley Smock Dress: H&M
Leather ‘o’ choker: ebay (direct link here>link)
Moon & Star Ring*: DIXI

I really haven’t been in the mood at all to take any outfit photos this weekend as I am ill, which is SUPER annoying as I never get poorly, so it’s a pretty good job that I had these photos from the other week left over :)

You are all probably getting super fucking sick of my leather jacket aren’t you? Ahh well, you’ll just have to put up with it because it’s my favourite & I’ll wear it with all my damn outfits if I want to… the leather chokers will also be sticking around, I love them, they update any outfit & are just damn cool, I also bought two more this weekend for the bargainous price of £4, which you can check out on my instagram if you wanna ;) (@effiesmakeupbox)

The dress was another good find, it’s from H&M, I bought it a couple of weeks ago now, I’m guessing it’s new(ish) stock as it was still full price (£12.99…bargain?!) anyway, I fell in love with the paisley yin yang print & the shape of it is perfect, it reminds me a lot of my Mink Pink smock dresses. It’s so great for just chucking on when you don’t know what to wear.

Right, I’m going to go & pack for work tomorrow, make up brush washing, here I come! ;)

ps: yes, I am still obsessed with THAT Arctic Monkeys song <3

Never Fully Dressed

IMG_3734IMG_3799IMG_3765IMG_3755delilah dust hamsaIMG_3816
Shirt Dress*: Never Fully Dressed
Sunflower Floral Crown: DIY
Long Pendant Necklaces: Empty Casket
Gold Hamsa Necklaces*: Delilah Dust

Apologies for the super bleached out photos, we only realised after we had shot these that the ISO was on way higher than usual >.< Ooops. But you know what, I quite like it, it’s a nice change :)

This shirt dress is my new absolute favourite! I just know I am going to wear it to death! Just look at the waffle cut out middle for goodness sake, it’s perfect! The guys at Never Fully Dressed sent it to me last week & honestly guys, I love it & I love their whole site, they are a hidden treasure & you need to go & check them out, especially if you are fond of the boho look like myself. I literally need everything that is on their site, in my wardrobe. & I have my beady eye on the white/cream version of this shirt too, it’s just too perfect! Thank you so much NFD!

I have been meaning to photograph these Delilah Dust necklaces for what seems like an absolute age. They are perfect & Delilah Dust is one of the most awesome jewellery shops I have encountered on the web. Antonia makes & sells some outstandingly beautiful pieces at amazing prices which makes her the bomb in my books! Check out Delilah Dust here>link.

Leather Jacket: ASOS
Top: Primark
Jeans: Topshop

I have to admit, that I have been a bit of a blogging grump lately & to be honest, I think I need to snap myself out of it asap! This was going to be a ranty kind of post but I have decided against it as I really don’t need that kind of negativity here, I need to stop caring about things too much…

Anyway, I love this outfit. I’ve been looking for a new pair of jeans for a while now as I am sick & tired of wearing skinny jeans. I have come to the conclusion that they really don’t do anything for my figure, they accentuate the one part of my body that I loath (oh hello huge hips & short legs >.<) so I have decided that from now on, skinny jeans are a no go until I get a bit of body confidence back…

PS this jacket is the best thing in the world & I love it!

Also, I really want to start doing my ootd outtakes posts again, would that be something you guys would be interested in or do you perffer the srs blggr posts? ;) You can see previous ones here> 1, 2, 3, 4.

You call me Lavender, You call me Sunshine…

Palm print shirt: Motel
Denim zip skirt: Motel
Pleather jacket: Daisy Street (ps there is 30% off everything at the mo ;) )
Bitch face: all mine babaaay!

Gosh, I have a bit of chronic bitch face going on today don’t I? I’m not miserable, promise, I do however feel like I have swallowed a kitchen knife & a handful of rusty nails so that would probably explain my not so impressed looking face…

I have been wanting an alternative to my Levi 501’s for a while now as everybody & their Mum wears them, especially around this time of year *‘like, OMG, it’s totes festival season guys, like, I totally, like am soooo indie & into bands, like where are my denim shorts & crop tops, I need to like dress like, totes boho chic with my expensivo wellies, yah yah…’’* UGH >.< plz stop… anyway back to the skirt, it has replaced my denim shorts & I’m loving it. You can’t beat a bit of asymmetric & exposed zip. Motel, you have NAILED IT once again!

As for the shirt, well, I think the shirt speaks for itself, don’t you  think?!

Oh yeah & I’m guessing you all have bloglovin’ now as GFC is supposedly dying tomorrow (RIP) Soooo as my blog is actually works on there now (after months & months of trying tot sort the damn thing out >.<) you can follow me on bloglovin’ here>link

Felt Fedora Hat: Topshop
Breton Top: H&M
Black Skort: ZARA

I FINALLY FOUND IT! The infamous Zara skort! & it’s just a amazing in real life as it is on the web! Does this make me a ‘proper’ fashion blogger now, ya know, cos everyone & their dog has one?! ahahahaha (‘: It fits a little on the large side but it’s nothing I can’t live with. Other than that, this outfit is pretty ‘plain Jane’ but sometimes the least fussy outfits are the best, don’t you think?
