My Style: An Unconventional Prom Outfit with Boohoo*

By March 25, 2015 My Style

So, as I mentioned a couple of posts ago, I’ve teamed up with Boohoo on a little prom outfit! Last year I worked with New Look, so it’s been really interesting to compare the two sites and what they have to offer. I’ve definitely noticed a difference which is why this is more of an ‘uncoventional’ prom outfit idea… but then, I’m pretty much always unconventional…

WHAT I WORE: Shaggy Faux Fur Jacket £20.00 (Boohoo)* // Magenta Prom Dress £18.00 (Boohoo)* // Metallic Temporary Tattoos £4.00 (Boohoo)* // Floral Necklace (Boohoo)* // Zebra Top (Jumble Sale) // Eye Clutch (Sunita Mukhi)* // White High Heels (New Look)*

Obviously (well to most people anyway), the dress is the most important part to a prom outfit. In my opinion, you could wear a jumpsuit, a top and trouser combo, anything you like, but a dress sometimes looks good too. This dress really jumped out at me for the colour and the shape. It’s actually an off-the-shoulder dress but due to me being a tiny little thing, it’s more like an… ‘off-the-elbow’ dress. I managed to save it and still make it look half prom like with my nifty zebra roll neck top. I honestly love that top.

I also honestly love this jacket. I have to be honest with you, it isn’t the best quality, but I think the texture is very unusual. Along with this prom dress, I’ve been loving wearing it with 70s style denim and chunky platform heels. It’s the perfect day-to-night piece, don’t you think? I think for a prom too, it’s a great cover up for those chilly nights.

For accessories, I decided to top the look off with a chunky necklace (which I actually, really, really love) and a cute, sparkly clutch. The necklace is a sort of raindrop style, dark transparent grey with a dark chunky chain… something I’d usually avoid but actually looks kinda’ funky on. Oh and the shoes you ask? Well they’re actually from last year’s prom post but I still love em’. I did however get some other Boohoo shoes which you can see styled up in this DIY blog post.

You may noticed throughout this post that I have put some snazzy geometric overlays on my images… well, well, well. These are actually in fact metallic temporary tattoos! How cool? You can see them on me above. I’m so obsessed. It’s such a cool idea and adds that tiny detail extra. It’s all a great way to avoid wearing heavy jewellery and bracelets that fall off whilst you dance the night away. They really are quite shiny and I definitely need to purchase some more. SO. COOL.

What do you think of my prom outfit? What are you wearing for your prom? I’d love to know in the comments!

So you are probably first of all wondering, who on earth are Mooi en Lief? Well, they’re a dutch wellington boot brand! They’re main belief is that everybody is different, and that’s what they want to incorporate with their products. It’s one of the main reasons why I’m so happy I get to work with them, they have just the same mindset as me 🙂 Plus, just because wellies are practical, doesn’t mean they have to be boring, right? They’ve also recently introduced ‘Style Kits‘ into their range, which are super cool, but I’ll talk about them a little later.

Mooi en Lief sent me a pair of their Black Buckle wellies and they’re actually pretty cool. I love the laces at the back, they kind of remind me of the Chanel A/W 14′ collection… not sure why, but oh well! I took these pictures on New Year’s Eve when it was absolutely freezing and it’s safe to say that they kept my feet toasty and warm… they also did today when I went outside and sledged! YES! SNOW. We have snow and I am very happy about that, can you tell?!

My Style: Super Khaki, Super Crazy*

By January 7, 2015 My Style

YAY! The first outfit post of the year, and a slightly ‘not so Tolly’ outfit. I’ve been feeling a lot of different vibes at the moment, so if somebody were to ask me, “How do you define your style?”, the answer would most probably be… ‘I have absolutely no idea.’ But hey, that’s the fun of being my age right? ‘Finding out who you are’ and all that stuff. Anyway, if you want to know what on earth I’m talking about, scroll on down… (P.S Can we note that all my pictures are in focus?! It’s all down to Phillis.)

Ever since Lily (LLYMLRS) posted a certain outfit on her blog/instagram – my memory is terrible, I can’t remember what she was wearing or where it was put up – I have been in love with not only pleated midi skirts but also, khaki. I’ve always been a colour girl, and I still am at heart, but for some reason I am drawn to this mushy green colour that should look repulsive, but somehow, looks absolutely fabulous! It goes along with the new ‘army/utility’ trend, with all the dungarees and cute baggy blouses… which I love! So mix that with my new found love of midi skirts (especially pleated ones), and you’re onto a winner!

I picked up this sparkly number on ASOS, and I love it! It’s definitely a lot more green in real life, so take that into account if you fancy the look of it!

Another thing I picked up from ASOS, was this super cute (see what I did there) crop top! I didn’t actually know it was a crop top, but I like it none the less. I’m a big fan of the racer back style, and also a huge fan of all thinks sparkly, so it was a no brainer! I can’t wait to style it up in the summer! I think with baggy jumpers, it’s always nice to have a sneaky bit of something else popping through, so it was a good excuse to pop it underneath! Speaking of baggy jumpers, I got this pink one as a Christmas present (thanks Father Christmas Mama Posh!) and although it’s not something I would personally pick out, I like the texture and it goes perfectly well with this whole khaki thing.

Last but not least… accessories! I paired a few pieces of jewelry which I have had tucked away, and they worked wonderfully. The ear cuff was my first ever ASOS purchase (I think it was £2.50… I had to buy something back then), and although it seems my family despise of it, I rather like it! I’m becoming more open to mixing metal tones ya’ see! And as for the ring, goodness know’s where it’s from! I have an inkling it’s an old Primark piece, but I could be wrong. My feet are of course covered by my magnificent pair of Dr Martens which are the most beautiful things I own! *heart eyes emoji*

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town…

By December 4, 2014 My Style

He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake! He knows if you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake! Oh… hello there 🙂 I won’t bore you with a whole rendition of that Christmassy tune, but I will bore you (or maybe not) with a Christmassy set of photos! Christmas is literally just around the corner… like just over 2 weeks right?! How crazy. I decided to get a little bit festive and start getting my wrapping done now, before it all gets a bit hectic. How excited am I for Christmas? I’m pretty darn excited.

In the ‘Posh’ family, we’ve never really had a Christmas jumper tradition, but I am definitely a lover of the cosy, and cheesy feeling that they bring. This year I’m sporting a cute pastel blue number from New Look, which I am in love with. It’s super warm and soft, and definitely fits in with my adoration for all things pastel and kawaii. The Santa face also looks kinda’ retro, which I think adds to the classic feel of a Christmas sweater. I also love the sequins… it’s got me rather excited to wake up on Christmas Day and slip it on just in time for opening my stocking. Cute, huh?

New Look Christmas Jumper Santa Claus ~ THE PRESENTS ~

I know some people genuinely hate this part of Christmas Day, but I am SO excited for it… and that’s seeing people open my presents! It’s such a nice feeling seeing their plain faces change to huge great big grins when they see what’s inside the lovely wrapping. Obviously presents are quite hard to buy if you don’t have a list or have any clue as to what the receiver might like, but either way, most people are lovely enough to appreciate even a piece of coal 😉 But… if you do need any inspiration, make sure to check out my gift guide here!

Another gift which would be perfect is a pair of Heat Holders. I’ve always been a fan, and they kindly sent another pair to add to my collection but due to a little photography crisis I had for this post, I couldn’t fit them in, but please do check them out if you have a set of cold toes!

New Look Christmas Jumper Santa Claus~ THE TRADITIONS ~

I think one of the most common questions asked when it comes to Christmas is, ‘What are your traditions?’. For my family, it’s waking up earlier than usual, grabbing our stockings (lovingly placed on the ends of our beds during the night… yes, I am 14 and my siblings are almost all 20…), and racing to our parents room to open them up. It’s always been something I’ve been excited for, because we all truly love Christmas. Not for the presents, but for being altogether. I’m also starting to appreciate that more and more as my siblings get older, as soon it will just be me on the end of Mama & Papa Posh’s bed… oh dear, don’t get the water works starting! 

(This is not a sponsored post. I was kindly gifted a New Look Christmas jumper, but all opinions are 100% honest. The mention of Heat Holders was just a little thank you for them sending me a pair my way… I just couldn’t fit them in photo form! Read my full disclaimer here.) Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

My Style: Chanel A/W 14 Girl Inspired

By November 26, 2014 My Style

When I think tweed, I think Chanel. But when I think pink tweed, I think Chanel A/W 14. There was something so magical about the A/W collection… it was full of texture but in a new, fun and modern way which I don’t think has ever been pulled off quite as well. Not only did I like the clothes, I also loved the whole aesthetic, and this is what today’s post is about. Double tweed, fun poses… and a floppy mop on the top of my head. It was fun to do and edit, so you better like it too… Let me know what you think of this post and if I should re-create any other designer looks!

WHAT I WORE: Tweed Jacket (Jumble Sale) // Tweed Dress (Zara Kids – Very old!) // Zebra Top (Jumble Sale) // Spotty Skirt (Peacocks)* // Looney Tunes Socks (Primark) // Jelly Shoes (Supermarket)

Surprisingly enough, a lot of this outfit was incredibly cheap. In fact, I reckon you could fool some non-fashion lover that the dress and jacket are really Chanel… possibly. I picked up the jacket from a jumble sale, and haven’t worn it enough due to the fact it has that slight oversized feel to it. Looking at it now though, I should definitely wear it more often! It has that really nice, chic shape to it.The dress has been in my wardrobe for possibly half my life (yikes)! Mama Posh treated me to a Zara outfit once and only finally have I started to appreciate this dress’ (top now really…) beauty. I added the skirt for an added bit of length, and voila! Is it a convincing faux-Chanel? I would say so…?

Without sounding vain and blowing my own trumpet, I actually really like the way this outfit comes together. It’s just the little touches that look so cute together. I mean, who can say no to £1.50 Looney Tune socks?! The texture brings out the more mature side of my style, but the colour and mixed prints adds that fun pop. Sometimes using a collection or lookbook for inspiration can really help. I’ve been on a bit of an outfit choosing low, but this has definitely invigorated that eye for something special in me. Also… I can’t resist and excuse to wear a floppy bun on the top of my head… ‘It’s like the Chanel A/W 14 hair…’ is what I’ll say…!

 One last thing… there is actually a give-away up on my Facebook page! You can check it out here and a win cute A/W cape! Pretty awesome 🙂 Good Luck! Also, also, if you ever see on Twitter the link, ‘tdpf.co’, this is officially my new short link! It won’t take you anywhere unless it’s linked to a post… it’s basically my own version of ‘bit.ly’… just FYI!

My Style: A Glamorous Accessory…*

By November 12, 2014 My Style

YAY! It’s time for another OOTD! You guys just love these posts, so I’m glad I get to post them! I’m quite happy with these pictures again which is a good thing, but the even better thing is the fact that very soon I will have my hands on a new lens! So exciting 🙂 You guys give me the opportunity to improve my photography, and I’m so grateful. If you’re wondering, I’ve purchased the 35mm lens (I currently use a 50mm), and I couldn’t be more happy! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this post…

WHAT I WORE: Teddy Textured Jumper (Glamorous)* // Grey Structured Skirt (Glamorous)* // Metallic Dr Martens (Mastershoe My-Shu)* // Black Floppy Hat (ASOS) // Gold & White Necklace (Claire’s)* // CASIO Sheen ‘SHE-3030GL-5AUER’ Watch (Casio)*


Ever since this skirt and jumper combo slipped through the door, I have been obsessed. They’re both very autumnal, but they are so versatile and I can see myself wearing them all the way through the year. The jumper is this weird fuzzy, teddy bear material, which I think adds an awesome layer of texture and dimension to the outfit. The skirt has actually been on my radar for a while… I am in love with structured skirts, so when I saw this, I snapped it right up! The lining is actually a deep burgundy red colour, and looks awesome when it sneakily flashes in the wind (how can I right that without it sounding weird?!). I knew straight away what I was going to wear it with, and I think I nailed it (can I say that?)… and yes, I know… I’m wearing navy and black in the same outfit… somebody call the fashion police!

I thought I’d whack in a mini review in this post because I’ve always been intrigued by Glamorous. A while back they emailed me asking if I’d be interested in working with them, and it was a bit of a hassle, but finally (I mean like 4 or 5 months later), I’m here now, and I’m pleasantly surprised! My items arrived ship sharp with free delivery, which is pretty darn awesome! They both came packaged well and fit perfectly, so I would have to say I would definitely recommend looking into them, even after the hassle I had with them previously. I like to be honest on this little old blog, so there you go!

Let’s talk accessories though… a while back I was sent a bunch of goodies from the Claire’s Katy Perry PRISM collection, and to be quite honest I have only really gotten round to wearing the pieces now! I knew that as soon as my beautiful new watch arrived (more on that later), that I would be wearing this necklace non-stop! The colours match perfectly, even though the watch is actually rose gold (I know… ROSE GOLD). I think it’s the little touches that really make an outfit come together, and this outfit is full of them! Oh and look at my gorgeous Dr Martens making another appearance… jeez, I love these shoes SO much! They’re just perfect and fit my style so well at the moment. Cannot rate them enough! Don’t forget my  floppy hat too! I’m so glad I purchased it, as it’s been the best thing as the weather’s got cooler, love love love!

And finally, we have the main star of the show… my gorgeous watch from Casio Sheen! I’ve never actually been that much of watch wearer, but after receiving this, I think I maybe converted. I think one of the main reasons is because I am very slim, I have to reach for the teen/tween style ones which are just a bit too young for me, and not really up my street, because they tend to fit a bit better. I was worried this wouldn’t fit, but to my surprise, it actually fits like a glove! It has a different clasp than usual, but it makes wearing it a whole lot more comfortable. Although it is a bit of a pricey piece, it truly has made me fall in love with the whole ‘arm candy’ thing. It’s just right, it’s not too showy, or too simple, and the rose gold just tops it all off.

Are you a watch person? Have you tried out Glamorous? Let me know in the comments! I love hearing your thoughts 🙂

~ HAPPY HALLOWEEN ~

*Evil cackle* A bit too freaky for ya? I had quite a lot of fun doing this little shoot… although cutting up a teddy was a little sad! I don’t know about you but there is something rather spooky about old dolls… they look at you in this way that seeps right through you and makes anybody (even the toughest of the toughest people) do a bit of a scared-y cat dance. I took a lot of inspiration from fashion editorials for this shoot, whether it be for the make-up or the actual shots. I wanted it to look like a spooky tea party… a bed covered in teddies, spiders in tea cups and shadow-y lighting, and of course the creepy doll, and I’m so happy with the outcome!

The make-up was mainly eyeliner and 2 shades of eye-shadow (pink and white), and was rather easy to do, so if you’re still in need of a last minute (like, girl, you better start getting ready now) costume, then this is probably a safe bet. I wore a rather girly white dress and blue tutu, a giant hair bow (courtesy of the wonderful Georgie at Beauxoxo) and added cracks to my face and neck for an even spookier effect.

huge thank you to the lovely people who made this shoot come together perfectly! I must say that the make-up I recieved from CutECOsmetics was amazing quality and I will certainly be using them again and again. The bow that I mentioned earlier was made by Georgie (thank you!) and the ring was from the quirky and fabulous Punky Pins! Also another huge thank you to Papa Posh for taking these pictures, you did a rather good job! Hair, make-up, photo editing etc etc, was all done by moi! 

What are you wearing for Halloween? Let me know in the comments! Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

My Style: A Little Transitional Outfit for Autumn*

By October 9, 2014 My Style

Well hello there my friend! I’m back with another outfit! Excuse the different editing of these images (if you can tell…) but I’m deciding on what works best for me so you might see different styles in the next few My Style posts. Speaking of different styles… this outfit is quite a different style for me! It’s quite a transitional one… not much colour, but I like it nonetheless and I hope you do too! 🙂

What I Wore: Fluffy Faux Feather Jacket (Matalan), Lace Hem Breton Top (Johnnie B – Sold Out)*, Mom Jeans (Jumble Sale), Cat Ear Bowler Hat (Claire’s)* & Blue Folk Print Hi-Tops £15.99 (New Look)*

I told you it was a slightly different outfit than usual! Where the heck has the colour gone?! I think sometimes it is refreshing to change it up though, especially since I basically wear colour 9 til’ 5. Claire’s sent me this adorable cat ear bowler hat (which I believe is from the new Katy Perry collection), and I new straight away I had to whack out my old Matalan jacket… which wasn’t quite as ‘cropped’ when I first got it… if you know what I mean 😉 It was also another reason to brave wearing black/grey with navy… it worked out alright in the end!

How cute is the hat though?! My brother doesn’t like it, and to be honest I never knew it would suit me, but it’s definitely won me over. The ears add that cuteness, and the grey/black shade adds that touch of sophistication. I wear it on the back of my head and swoop my hair back into miniature curtains and I love it! The colour also compliments not only my skin tone, but also my hair colour… what do you think of it? Ooh, and let’s not forget the cute little Breton top that I chose from Johnnie B. You can never have too many striped tops! It’s a slightly wider fit than I would usually go for, but it looks really casual of jeans or a flowy skirt. The lace adds a really nice touch too, especially layered over tulle.

Let’s talk shoes! I’ve had these for a while now from New Look, and they are super duper comfy! I always tend to wear these with jeans because they look awesome with them. The paisley print is such a nice touch too.

Ahh Autumn, I’m glad you are back! Although it means it’s time for thick tights and cold noses (and toes!), it also means it’s nearly Christmas… and then nearly 2015! I think this outfit has made me realise that I need to take this season to rediscover some gems in my wardrobe and perhaps replace them with a few new items. Are you feeling the same? Tell me!

Before you go though, I have some news! I can finally say that Tolly Dolly Posh Fashion is getting a re-design! Eeee! 😀 I’m going to be launching it on the 25th October 2014. That means my site will probably be down for maintenance on the 24th, but do not fear, it’s for the good! I am SO excited now… it’s all coming together so so well! It’s going to be a big change but I hope you like it! The countdown begins… Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

My Style: Tennis Court & Dr Martens*

By September 24, 2014 My Style

Eeeee! I am so excited to share these pictures with you! Yesterday we found an old abandoned tennis court (it was at the top of a weird path at the top of a hill), and my outfit seemed to fit the setting really well and it came out with a really cool urban/grunge vibe. I’m really inspired by fashion editorials and the way they are done at the moment so sorry for the photo spam! I really hope you like these as much as I do! 😀 If you want to see where everything is from etc, scroll through the pictures to the end…

What I Wore: Cool Kids Club Sweatshirt (ASOS), White Star Print Blouse (Jumble Sale), Pleated Skirt (H&M Girls), Socks (FOX) & Dr Marten Pascal Mirror Shift Suede Boots (Mastershoe-MyShu)*

Dah-dah! I’m just SO pleased with how the photos came out! I don’t care if that sounds vain, but it’s just exciting when something comes together, especially when it’s spontaneous! I also absolutely love this outfit too, it’s quite autumnal I suppose, but it feels right now that the leaves are changing. You might recognise this jumper from my LFW outfit ideas… I finally caved in and purchased it after I found a 20% off code, hooray! I adore it.

I also adore my new Dr Martens… they’re SHINY! They’re beautiful. They’re the kind of iridescent metallic that looks different at every angle, I’m actually obsessed and can’t stop looking at them all the time. I highly recommend visiting the Mastershoe-MyShu website also, because they have a fabulous range of shoes, and loads of brands… plus they are super lovely, supportive people too. May I add that the socks I am wearing are the best kind of socks for Dr Martens, ever. They’re not too thick or too thin, just perfect!

What do you think of this outfit and this kind of post? Did you like the pictures? Let me know in a comment below, I love to know your thoughts! 🙂

Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

My Style & Inspiration with Phiney Pet*

By September 6, 2014 My Style

Helloooo! Long time no blog. Sorry for the slight delay in posting, I’ve actually been quite busy and some of the posts which I was meant to post just weren’t coming across 100% tip-top, but I have one finally! Another apology for the fact that my recent OOTD/My Style posts have been so close together… I won’t be posting one for a while due to LFW, so I thought I would give you twice as much in one go! Today though, I have an outfit post with a bit twist. I’m doing a little thing with Phiney Pet and I hope you enjoy… (Inspiration images via Tumblr)

Frida, Denim & Embroidery (Tolly) // Circles, Monochrome & Summer (Phiney Pet)

Just as an introduction for those of you who don’t know of Phiney, she is an upcoming designer who I found through Style Bubble (Susie Lau’s blog). Phiney mainly paints clothing which I think is really cool and unique. One of my favourite things she has done was her SS 14′ jacket. It was so intricate and detailed, I loved it! For the first stage of our little ‘collab’ we put together some ideas for the box clutch via some images from Tumblr. I’ve been loving denim recently and I think badges and embroidery all mix in really well, especially with a summery vibe. I’m all about bright colours also so it’s basically the perfect mix for me. Flowers are a huge inspiration for me too, so of course Frida Khalo had to be mixed in! Phiney said that she accidentally used images which all involved circles, and it came out quite well! I gave Phiney some other ideas like including fruit and palm trees and the result is pretty cute! ^.^

What I Wore: Denim Jacket (Jumble Sale), Spotty Dungarees (ASOS), Pom Pom Headband (ASOS), Black Shimmer Dr Martens (Jumble Sale), Badges £3.00 each (Phiney Pet)* & Custom Lunch Box Clutch (Phiney Pet)*

I admit it, this outfit is pretty simple, but sometimes comfort is key. Although it is simple, it’s perfect for this kind of year as it isn’t too warm and isn’t too cold. It’s great for the transition between summer and autumn. Due to spots and denim being involved in our inspiration images, I obviously had to wear my jacket and favourite dungarees. They’re too cute! Phiney (Josephine really) also gave me a keyring which I knew immediately would suit my pom pom headband, so the outfit came together quite quickly. I also had on this super cute little crochet crop top but I completely forgot to photograph it. Grrrr!

To be quite honest the clutch wasn’t quite was I was expecting in terms of size and style, but I actually kind of like it’s quirky charm. Even if I don’t get to wear it out that often, it will always be a reminder of finding new upcoming designers like Phiney. I love the little pineapple and the spots and everything painted basically. It’s just so cute! I think on holiday it would look adorable with all your beach essentials inside… aww, now I really want to go to the beach and sun bathe… *sighs*

Finally lets talk about the little details. Josephine also really kindly slipped in some of her super cute badges, they’re adorable and I especially love the pastel ones. They give an added girly-ness to my denim jacket, which I also love. It’s a little bit cropped (aka. too small) but I’ve got a lot of wear out of it which is always good. Speaking of wearing, I haven’t worn my Docs in ages, especially this pair. I definitely need to get some more boot socks for these bad boys. I will not have blisters for winter!

Thank you so much to Phiney Pet for joining me in this post, I hope that lots of you (my lovely readers) will have a nose on Phiney’s site… it’s super cute, so I totally recommend that you do. I cannot wait to see your SS 15′ collection PP! Did you like the clutch Phiney painted? Let me know in a comment! Speak soon 😀
