Sequin Love

'Tis the season for a good ol' sequin and I have well and truly fallen in love with this silver Lavish Alice number.

I absolutely love the length and fit of this skirt, I've chosen to keep it casual with a slogan tee and trusty leather. It's no secret around here that I love a multi purpose item, and I can already see lots of outfit options for the Christmas party season to dress this baby up!

Blondedge


Blondedge is an online store with a really cool concept. They sell a mixture of Primark and vintage pieces. Why is that so great I hear you ask? I for one, am a big fan of Primark bargains but I certainly do not enjoy the shopping experience there. Crowds, clothes on the floor, queuing for half an hour? No thanks! Blondedge find the best pieces, like this shearling coat, and sell them online from the comfort of your couch. Win.








This is the perfect weekend outfit, I can't wait to style the shirt and coat with other items in my wardrobe!

Cricket Fashion Night Out

Liverpool designer boutique Cricket held a Fashion Night Out as part of the numerous Celebration Of Style events happening throughout the city last week.

I got to hang out with the lovely Hollie from http://www.goodgollymisshollie.co.uk/ and we enjoyed a champagne reception hosted by Matalan, one of the sponsors of Celebration Of Style, before heading into the main room for the catwalk show.

The venue was beautiful, held at the Cunard Building it was lit up and buzzing with celebs and fashion lovers alike. The FROW included Rosie Fortesque from Made In Chelsea, Chloe Green, Hollyoaks and Emmerdale stars to name just a few.

The show was incredible, the models were decked out in designers such as Givenchy, Lanvin, Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent and Victoria Beckham. Here's some pics from the evening -

Music was provided throughout the night firstly by Alexa's bro Dom Chung with a brilliant DJ set, and live performances from band Broken Men and artist Kellie-Leigh.

It was so lovely to have such a big fashion event held in Liverpool, being a proud Scouser its great to see the city being recognised by the industry and hopefully this is the start of many more events of this nature. Well done to Justine and the team from Cricket on such a glamorous evening!

Warhol

This weekend I was invited to the new and very exciting Andy Warhol exhibition at the Tate by the lovely Alison.

Art is something I've always loved and Andy Warhol's work has been up there with my favourite. The exhibition was really interesting, it was so nice to see all the different elements put together from print to video the exhibition really gave an insight to his era and work influence.

Although you're not allowed to take photographs inside the exhibition, I took a few snaps outside next to a huge Marilyn Monroe to show you my outfit for the day!

Cheeky Monki

Now, of all my A/W purchases this jumper has got to be one of my best buys! I love the colour, fit and feel of it and the first time I wore it to work at least 10 people asked where it was from! Monki is slowly becoming one of my favourite brands and I couldn't resist popping in to the shop when I was in London a few weeks ago.

Paired with some black skinny jeans and statement boots, I think this look will be one of my go-to's! I hope Monki branch out an open a few stores up north!







Also Finn decided he wanted in on my blog photos...!
