Wildfox Couture Outfit Wishlist



Hey gorgeous people,
so today I was have been having a relaxing day because it's the first day of EASTER BREAK ! and I thought as I have just watched my fav film of all time CLUELESS!! and Wildfox did a great job of replicating the films iconic scenes. I thought why not do a Wildfox outfit wishlist. So here it is lovelies.

Such a cute and  a clueless-like outfit, I love it from the cute shorts to the lovely sheer socks .

This is mega cute and so me, I love the school girl inspired skirt with a 90's inspired top.


This definitely alot more wearable and quite casual but still cute. And I'm sure you spot a trend happening, yes I love skirts.
Isn't this just a fashionable way to be sporty, I mean if you wear this outfit, no-one will be calling you a tomboy, thats for sure.
Ah ha finally an outfit with trousers, your thinking. I liked this it's kinda boho because of the high waisted ness but smart, cool and casual which I like in clothes and has cats, which is a print I haven't worn yet (I have worn horses and birds).

So okay, I know I'm not being really helpful, if you want to get the looks as I haven't put the prices but I will link the website, if you haven't heard of them, even though I think most people have. I hope you guys have a great day.

5 Broken Camera's by Emad Burat & Guy Davadi

Hello lovelies,
so today I had the opportunity to go and watch the Oscar nominated film '5 broken Cameras'. Now to prior watching this film, I never thought it would affect me, as much as it did. This film is amazing, it's touching, truthful and even could be called a bildungsroman, as it follows not only the Palestine's ongoing war, but also the life of the protagonist Emad Burat's youngest son Gibreel. I will link the IMDB profile of the film here. I can't explain to you guys how much this film inspired and made me want to help people even more than I do already, as it is such great eye opener. I was also privileged to actually meet the director/protagonist character himself ! Emad Burat as I went with my A-level media class. This film has actually made me re-think whether to do Fashion Journalism at LCF(that has been my dream for so long) to maybe just do Journalism as I have always wanted to be the voice of the people and to broadcast the truth . My apologies for not doing an ootd today but as I was dressed pretty casual, it wouldn't be very interesting and also I wouldn't want to take the focus away from this film.

I know this post is a little different to what I usually do, but I thought it would be fun to mix up a little.
I hope you lovelies have a lovely evening.
Lizzie.

Mix And Match - OOTD

Hello gorgeous people,
So England has been really cold and frosty lately and even in some parts snowy ! So this is why I decided to dress super casual and layer up. The reason for title is because It didn't plan to wear all these pieces together It just kinda happened last minute.



So this was my outwear look, I love how blue the coat comes out on camera, and I just thought it was cute how the cream from my jumper just peeks out a little, like a little arm cuff (I think thats the word haha). And look how beautiful my mothers pashmina is that I borrowed today, just so gorgeous but I maybe biased as I love gold coloured things and patterned scarfs.


So this is my outfit today, it was casual but colourful. I am wearing an ASOS jumper (borrowed from my sister), a mustard Next top, my black leggings that you have all seen before and my brown boots. It's a very mis matched outfit I know, but I think it kinda works. I would love for you to comment below as I answer every comment or tweet me and follow me on Bloglovin .

Thanks you reading lovelies.

Quick Review: One Man, Two Guvnors !!

                       

Hello beauties,
So yesterday I had an opportunity to go and watch the play 'One Man, Two Guvnors' at the Theatre Royal in Haymarket, and it was AMAZING ! I couldn't stop laughing it was so funny. The reason I attended the play is because I'm studying english literature and we are doing 'One Man, Two Guvnors' for our exam. Now I have to say, I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it, because I already knew the text really well & I thought I would end up criticising it more than enjoying it. But it was absolute amazing, Rufus Hound played the harlequin / protagonist of the play Francis, which I think he got spot on. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who might want to go but if your thinking about it, definitely GO ! I'm sorry I didn't take any pictures of my outfit as I forgot but I dressed really casual as it was really cold/ & it later on snowed. 
I hope you enjoyed my quick review.

SABO SKIRT !





So I absolutely love Sabo skirt, I have known of the brand for a while and I have always been in love with the clothes, even though I have purchased anything from them yet. Their clothes are just so beautiful and summery and I bet when you go on their site, you will find something that you will love. The site is run by two lovely girls Thessy and Yiota and after going to look at their clothes, you should go check out their blog as they have an amazing style and usually self-advertise their clothes. So if your stuck on how to wear a certain piece or you just need style inspiration than I definitely recommend going on their blog. Here are just a few pieces I love.









Thank you for reading lovelies.

Have You Seen My Student Job Articles ?




So early on this year I felt really inspired to just get writing and I knew I wasn't too ready to start my own blog just yet, so I was on the hunt for magazines or sites where I could be a writer and around this time I found The Student Job sites. I was so lucky as when I first found this website, it had a bulletining about being a student writer, so of course I jumped at the chance and I was lucky enough to actually be chosen. I have written two articles so far and I will leave the link here. I would love for you to read it and tweet me what you think.

I hope you enjoy my articles.

Shabby Chic


 

                   



Hello lovelies,
So today me and my lovely friend Faiza went for one of our daily walk in our local park and because it was  sunny we thought why not take some pictures; now let me not fool you guys it was freezing today but because I hadn't done a post in a while I thought I would brave the cold. Today I wore my pink blazer from Primark, white polo neck from Zara, chunky necklace I borrowed from my sister, black leggings from Topshop and my brown boots that were given to me by my mum. When leaving the park we spotted these cute little houses and I had to get a photo of it. The last picture is just so pretty and If I wasn't there I would think it was taken on a lake but no its just the lovely view of a pond !

I hope you enjoyed this post :)

All Work And No Play

Hola Amigos,
So I feel like I have neglected my blog recently but its only because the coursework load is getting alot heavier nowdays and it seems like I have gotten into a vicious cycle of waking up going college,coming home, having a nap, waking up doing work till late and waking up the next morning mega tired. But anyways this is what I wore on Wednesday 7th March .


My cardigan is from New Look, Shirts from H&M, Navy trousers are from Dorothy Perkins and just my black platform shoes also from H&M.

H & M latest catalogue

Hey fashionistas,

So a couple of days ago, I received via post the new H&M catalogue and because I instantly really liked some of the new products I thought I would do a blog post on them. Here are just some things that caught my eye when I was flicking through the catalogue / browsing on their site. So lets gets started.



 

 

1. Black &White patterned trousers-£12.99    2. Blue & White dotted trousers-£14.99   
3. Blue textured dress-£24.99     4. Black dress with tiger print-£12.99    5.Multi-colour maxi skirt-£19.99
6. Pink skirt with lace -£19.99     7. Gold earrings-£4.99     8. Brown ankle boots-£24.99   
 9. Red bowler hat-£7.99   10. Army green jacket with grey sleeves-£29.99 

I know theses pieces are very random but I really liked them all. Something that I noticed when flicking through the catalogue is that prints are definitely still in! And thats why I had to included these patterned trousers and the gorgeous maxi skirt that reminded me a lot of something Gillian Zinser aka 'Ivy Sullivan' from 90210. I love things with tigers or lions as I am a Leo, so of course I would love this black dress with a tiger on it. I choose this light pink skirt because I thought it was really cute and it reminded me of a skirt that Georgina Clare wore in one of her posts. The gold earrings reminded me of 'The Great Gatsby' and something that would be sold on 'Jewel Mint'  so I was really surprised that it was sold for only £4.99. Theses brown boots reminded me of a close friend on mine, who has really good taste. Also these boots could be a good investment, as it would go with literally everything as it is brown and quite subtle. When I saw this hat I automatically thought of Amy and I thought it was just a really pretty colour. 

Thank you so much for reading :)
