As we transition into autumn it is a perfect time to mix up your wardrobe and add some new pieces. I have made a video on my outfit plans for autumn which will be going live this evening but I thought I’d create a blog post to go alongside it with some shoppable versions of the outfits I refer to.

Wine And Burgundy

As we move into the autumnal season colours like wine and burgundy begin to make up a large part of our wardrobe; inspired partly by the colours of nature changing around us into deep shades of red and orange. I love this colour and think it looks flattering on everybody, whatever skin tone or hair colour you have. It’s my go to colour for autumn as it always manages to look so classy and beautiful. I’ve collected together some of my favourite wine and burgundy coloured pieces that I’ve seen online and in store which I think are perfect for the autumn/winter season. As always, all of the pieces are shoppable, just click on the links!

What’s In My Bag

Handbags seem to be literal tardises most of the time and I seem to be able to do a Mary Poppins and bring half my life around with me in my bag. Such random things end up being in my bag but I thought I’d share what I have in my bag on a regular basis.


My phone

Of course one of the most obvious things I keep in my bag is my phone – at the minute I have an iPhone 6 and I keep it with me practically at all times. I keep it in a handy middle pocket of my bag which is perfect size for my phone! Just in case it dies on me I also tend to keep a portable charger in my bag. Mine is from Poundland and honestly you don’t need to fork out on really expensive ones because this one works just fine, it’s a pretty purple colour as well!


Purse 

Another essential in my bag is my purse which I carry with me everytime I go out which has all my money, membership cards and gift cards in. Of course it’s pink and white, what other colours would it be?!


Makeup top ups

I always carry round a few pieces to top up my makeup with throughout the day including Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and of course a lipstick and lip balm. I love the Nivea Rosé for lip balm and of course MAC Velvet Teddy for lipstick.


Travel size perfume

For me, travel size perfume is a must have as I like to stay smelling nice all throughout the day. This travel sized one from AVON is perfect as it’s small enough to fit in my handbag!


Pocket sized mirror

Another essential is a pocket mirror for checking makeup and hair on the go and this beautiful Disney one is so cute.

Other things I keep in my bag include my epi-pen and allergy medication, my makeup bag and other helpful things such as plasters and hair grips.

Designer Shoes Wishlist

Designer shoes are a real treat for most people and throughout my life I hope to treat myself to these beauties. In my opinion these are the prettiest designer shoes out there which if I had millions of pounds I’d be snapping up in a instant.

Chanel shoes are a must have on any designer shoe wishlist as they’re all so beautiful and classy. I actually have a dupe of these shoes (here) because they’re such a lovely style but I wish I could own the real thing! These pink and white ones are stunning and would fit my wardrobe perfectly.

Chloe shoes are so beautiful and these Mike Pumps are no exception. The fact that they’re pink and decorated with bows makes them even better! If I could find a dupe for these I’d buy them in a heartbeat.

These Michael Kors Carey boots are so smart and beautiful for autumn/winter, I’m in love. Heeled ankle boots are so gorgeous and can be paired with so many things that having these in my wardrobe would be perfect.

That makes up my top three designer shoes which I’d be spending the money on if I had the chance. What’s your dream designer shoe? Tell me in the comments below!

Fashion Police – Size Zero Models

Earlier this year I wrote an extended essay for school all about size zero models and their impact on other models and the wider world. When I was writing it I researched into lots of former models who were pushing for more representation on the runway and better health checks within the modelling community to prevent sick, mentally ill and incredibly young models from walking in the shows.

Finally, finally, some designers have taken notice and made amends to their modelling requirements. French groups LVMH and Kering, which own some of the largest designer names out there, such as Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, have been the first of their kind to implement rules to this extent with their models.

The new rules state that female models cannot be below a UK size 6, male models cannot be below a UK size XXS, all models must provide a doctors note stating they are healthy and fit to model, all models must be over 16 if being used for adult clothing and those between 16 and 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone if travelling abroad. These rules should encourage a bigger representation of curvier women and plus sized models on the catwalk as well as older models too. Of course, it also ensures that all the people within the modelling community are safe and less likely to develop eating disorders as the need to be stick thin to be a model should slowly fade away.

It should be interesting to see a fashion week where not every show is completely made up of size zero models, like they have been for many years. I hope that this act by LVMH and Kering inspires other big fashion houses to do the same so eventually all catwalks will be more diverse and accepting of every size.

Chanel On A Budget

1D3C733C-7D9C-4461-8465-8CD6F73D4571

Coco Chanel has always been one of my biggest style icons, ever since I researched her timeless fashion aged 8 for a primary school project. Since then my love for her classy style has grown and grown and I really admire her work in freeing women from the confines of pre WWI fashion.

Unfortunately, as an average teenage girl, I cannot afford any actual Chanel products. That’s where the idea to take Chanel’s iconic style and recreate it on a budget began, for those fashionistas working with small amounts of money, do not fear, you too can have access to Chanel’s gorgeous fashion sense.

It would make sense, when recreating such well known fashion, to turn to dupes. My favourite dupe website has to be SheIn.com, it’s great not only for affordable dupes of high end fashion but also for original pieces.

This gorgeous tweed dress with pussybow detail is clearly Chanel inspired from the simplistic black and white colour scheme to the use of tweed which Chanel used for her iconic Chanel Suit. The mini dress length represents how Chanel liberated women from the excesses of ballgowns and it creates a chic look.

I paired the dress with these Chanel inspired shoes; the black toe cap takes inspiration from Chanel’s collection and classic style. These are an easily wearable height and the ankle strap means that you can tighten them to fit your feet comfortably.
