Just another day at the office.....





This is one of H&M Brighton's employees on the left, working very hard bringing the stores lovely clothes to fashion zombies like us. I'm glad to see H&M have chosen a very fashionable lady. Her brown super skinny cargo pants and flexible black leather look plimsolls show off her petite pins. And her loose fitting lemon yellow logo t-shirt  is very vibrant and cheerful for the summer, but is equally relevant for the autumnal months. Finally, her geeky specs and punky boy crop finish off this generally casual but smart look off for a good days work. 7/10.  Now the other H&M employee on the right is very different. Now she works at the other H&M store in Brighton (I still do not understand why there are two stores, though I am not complaining)-and her magenta hair makes her stand out for sure, along with her matching shade of lipstick, navy jumper, cream lace skirt and lemon yellow tights. The outfit has the potential to be too much, but navy and cream go very nicely together, and it seems she has managed to almost separate each part of her outfit into different sections, giving you a surprise as you discover each colour. The look has a very 80's feel to it-but it has a 60's mod twist with the tights and a nautical effect with the cream and navy. 7/10 for this vibrant lady. 

Wondering around in New Look....

...and I see this girl, wearing a plain black pencil skirt, black tights, and black ankle boots. She was also fashioning a cream sleeveless floral blouse with a pointed collar, and a simple brown cardigan. Now this outfit was nice, I thought, but it wasn't anything special. It did not make me say 'Wow' or 'Woah', it was just very safe, like a part time job uniform or something a primary school teacher might tend to wear. I liked the flowers on the blouse, but the black bottom half dulled the outfit down for me. I would have teamed the blouse with a pair of light jeans, or maybe a cream/brown pleated skirt and brogues. But otherwise, I would give this 5/10. 

Another one...

Bonjour Mes Amis!  Here is une autre personne who's outfit I found inspiring and fascinating! Now this girl I met outside of Topshop, I instantly noticed her boy crop, rounded sunglasses and red lipstick combo. She teamed that with a very summery cream translucent blouse, floaty floral shorts, black tights and brown leather-looking brogues. She looked like she was heading to a festival, and her cool and calm personality shone through with this outfit. It reminded me of the hippy days in the 60's and 70's, where silk and chiffon was all everyone wore, and shades we small and round to fit petite frames and boyish pixie cuts. 10/10 pour moi!!
Au Revoir!

I'm back!!!!

I know it has been a while fashion lovers, but I have been a very busy girl! I have been preparing for University, and today I have been in Brighton to snap some fashionable people. Check it out!!
This lady I found in Marks and Spencer, and the first thing that caught my eye  about her was her amazing hair! She was blonde, with blue and purple tips. She had also matched her outfit colour to her hair, which I thought was very artistic and clever. The cool colours suggest she wants to stand out with colour but not be to outrageous in reds or pinks. Her navy trench reminds me of a 1940's romantic movie in the rain, and is very juxtaposed to her very punky hair and summery sandals. The bracelet around her ankle suggests an element of unique personality in her style, which she wanted to portray in a subtle way. A 8/10 for me!!

Chelsea

This is my sister in my mum's Old School Chic t-shirt from H&M and cream trousers, and her favourite boots ever.  She looks very casual yet chic, and very cute with her cheeky grin :) 

Me off on my hols....

I'm wearing a newly purchased outfit (another now favourite of mine!)  The shorts, top and scarf are surprisingly from Primark! Now Primark is definitely changing in terms of audience and USP, it is becoming more socially acceptable, I feel, to purchase items from the very cheap store because of the likes of celebrities from Essex, for example Stacey Soloman, who has admitted to buying her underwear from the place. (Something we have in common :)) Furthermore, the shop is coming away from cheap'n'cheerful and is heading in a more fashion savvy area, something I find very exciting! (me and my family call it 'Primarni' to sound less cheap xD) . Finally, my shoes are from New Look, a my favourite high street retailer for shoes! And my necklace from Next. I'm very much into neutral, earthy tones at the moment, I feel they are acceptable both for my skin tone and hair colour, plus they are fabulous for the summer! Will be back for more fashion lovelies!! x x x

My nails after a bit of tlc......

My lovely nails finished :)
One of the pedicure chairs, with built in spa
 and massaging chair, aaaahhh!  x)


Hand and foot dryers, wish
I had one of these at home!

The main counter, loved the oriental
 wallpaper!!
.....I went to a nail bar called 'The Nail Fairy' in my local town, and acrylic tips were added to my already fairly long nails. I found the whole experience quite strange- not only because the nail technician was male (he didn't engage in much conversation; probably because he was Asian and didn't speak much English). Also, the equipment and the actual process was very odd- he whizzed through it quite quickly and the acrylic liquid smelled peculiar.  Overall, my day was quite relaxing, I had a nice time shopping afterwards (Can't complain ;))  Peace out!!! xx

Ma lil' sis!!!

She is a 'chip off the old block!!' Here she is in Next (the same one that I was in) wearing a lovely ballet-style skirt from Primark, a plain black vest top and shrug, a black patent belt and some Nike high tops. The trainers give her quite feminine-looking outfit a sport-luxe edge. I have taught her well!!! 
More later fashion zombies!!!!
Love you all!!

Me in my favourite outfit at the moment

This is me in Next (Next sale!!) wearing my favourite top (a Barbie T-Shirt from Uniqulo.com) and my favourite skirt (Pleated and nude- £15 from New Look- Bargain!). Plus a weaved wooden bag and a pair of nude pointed flats (like pixie shoes-so cute) Both from Primark (The life of a student ey?) Altogether they portray a certain understated glamour that I love the look of at the moment. I felt so feminine walking along the gorgeous North Harbour (where I live) with my skirt blowing around me like I was on a runway (paha!)

Well...this is me, straight up :)

Hi there fashion nerds!
This is me at my friends party! I am wearing a navy and white horizontally striped shirt from Sainsburys, (Ahoy!) and my favourite high-waisted dark skinny jeans that finish at the ankle, (Though you wouldn't be able to tell). I am also wearing a pair of flat ballet shoes from Matalan, with a studded strap around the ankle. I feel the outfit as a whole has a very nautical feel to it, with a bit of a rock-chick edge because of the studs on the ballet shoes. I am looking forward to posting another picture of me and my extensive collection of clothes! Bon Voyage!
