Lisette Loves Guest Post: Tartan

By October 25, 2013 Fashion

Today’s guest post is from the wonderful, Lisette Henry at Lisette Loves. Do you remember when she guest blogged last time? Well, she’s back again with another cute, quick and simple one! Take it away… 

lisette loves guest post styles tartan three ways

Lisette: That time of year has come once more, the layering here in the UK is well and truly underway as we hurtle into the icy months of fall. Tartan is a trend which resurfaces almost every year on the catwalks and on the highstreet, this year is no exception. A lot of my friends shy away from tartan, scared they will look like overgrown school girls or too grungey and ‘punk’. I decided that I would put together a mini lookbook, my first in fact, to show some of the ways that I wear this deliciously autumnal trend.

look one: Boyfriend Blazer – Primark, Fur Collar – H&M, Cami – Topshop, Skirt – Matalan, Shoes – Office

look two: Scarf – H&M, Oversized Breton Top – Primark, Joni Jeans – Topshop, Chunky Boots – Topshop 

look three: Biker Jacket – Ark Clothing, Dress – H&M, Shirt – New Look, Cut Out Boots – Topshop

What do y’all think?
Tolly: I think you look great Lisette! My favourite is Look One! Perfect! Simple, cute and definitely A/W appropriate! 🙂

Blogger Inspired Fashion Design Collection

By September 8, 2013 Designs, Fashion

Oh. My. WOW. I haven’t done a design collection in yonks. I know I said I would, and I’m sawwwry, okay?! But, I thought this idea would make it a good way to start a fresh? Non? Welcome in my blogger inspired fashion design collection, oh yes!

blogger inspired fashion designAll these designs have been based on the blogger’s style. I’ve looked at what they’ve worn and slightly tweaked them. I’m sorry if they are not totally extravagant, but I wanted to really make them wearable for the bloggers.

What Olivia Did:
As you may already know, I love Olivia’s style, and I wanted to sort of, change up a few of the classic pieces that she likes to wear. I’ve made a sailor style collar, but changed it up to a pink colour. I would also make it embellished but it was hard to show on the image above. The skirt is a skater style one in polka dots, I would make it a nice thick jersey style so it has a lot of shape to it.

Briar Rose: 
Again, one of my favourite style inspirations, Megan. I decided to sort of change up the style, by going all out pink, and also using a smock style dress. Megan has the perfect figure for any type of dress style! The neckline has laser cut detail with also a few embellishments around. The skirt is a low waist, and has a nice puffy underskirt. I definitely think Megan could rock this!

Lisette Loves:
You might know, that um, I have a slight obsession with this one 😉 in, a *hopefully* non creepy way. Lisette has a gorgeous fashion sense! I decided to take her away from her favourite style of the smock dress, and pop her in a shift dress. A shapeless dress is always flattering, plus denim is too? I know Lisette could accessorise this really well! I would make the dress a nice perfect blue with a slight acid wash effect.

Hey D*ck Face: 
A more recent style obsession, is the lovely lady from Hey D*ck face. Her style is quite quirky but simple, so anyone can try and take a few ideas from her outfits. I decided to do a twist on one of her most recent OOTDs. I’ve made the sweater a purple and pastel blue dip dye colour, with the Hey D*ck face logo.  I also changed up the skirt so it is a metallic texture – so cool. I love the metallic look, and I definitely think she could work it 😉

blogger inspired fashion design

I hope you enjoyed this blog post! Make sure to check out all these lovely ladies, their blogs are amazing! I think I might do another one of these collections? What do you think? Let me know in the comments?

Fashion Blogs To Follow for Inspiration

By August 9, 2013 Fashion

I feel like I am being very nice to you guys recently. The Posh Fashion Awards where you won AMAZING prizes, Advertising on my blog to get exposure, and of course my upcoming give-away which I hope you will like. To be even more nice, I decided to publish a long awaited post about some of my favourite fashion blogs. Enjoy…

bambella

Alex from Bambella Blog:
I first came across Alex’s blog on Twitter I believe, and it was when her blog was fairly new. The blog is very simple, yet is has a lot of character, and I think if you can charm your readers without doing much at all, you are on the right track. My favourite posts on Alex’s blog, are her OOTDs, because they are so fun and the photos are amazing. I have met Alex once before (hopefully for a shopping trip soon too!) and she is super duper lovely. Every time I read her blog, it makes me smile because she is so honest. Alex also has YouTube where she posts the cutest videos ever, and I hope she uploads a new one soon!

burkatron

Caroline from Burkatron:
I found Caroline’s blog through Instagram, and instantly fell in love. Her blog has a great mixture of content, from nail art to OOTDs to weekly favourites. The pictures are extremely clear and her fashion sense is so crisp and ‘swishy'(?!). I love the fact that even though Caroline does get sent things for review, you don’t feel like it is heavily based on reviews etc, which now-a-days is a very common thing. Caroline also does great DIYs so if you want a new crafty blog to read, this is the one for you.

wish wish wish

Carrie from Wish Wish Wish:
I’m not quite sure how I found Carrie’s blog… I think maybe my sister recommended it, anyway, it doesn’t matter because I love it. The thing I really love is the pure mix of photography. They may not seem different, but I feel like each picture has a different character to them. I love Carrie’s simple tutorials, her travel guides, and just generally the whole feel of the blog. Every time she wears something, I feel like throwing it into my Christmas wish list. She’s bad for people like me with 0 pennies at the moment, but I seriously cannot resist peaking onto her blog everyday to see the new content. Also, she works at ASOS. Well-jell! (Oh dear… I never use that word…)

what olivia did

Olivia from What Olivia Did:
I think every blogger and their pets are inspired by Olivia’s graceful fashion sense. It’s so whimsical and retro, but she makes it look like anyone could work what she wears. Not only does Olivia do amazing OOTDs, she also does lifestyle posts, including a guide to the best burgers, oh yes, and her trip to Glastonbury this year, which I loved. Just like Carrie, I wish I had Olivia’s wardrobe. She is just so lovely, and I am proud to say that she follows me on Twitter. #fangirl

the girl in the lens

Natasha from Girl in The Lens:
Natasha’s blog is a recent find for me, but oh my, it’s a gooden. Her style is effortless and chic, yet simple and cute (wow, a lot of descriptive words there). The photography on Natasha’s blog is amazing, and I hope one day I am as skilled as her at editing etc. Her blog has a mix of posts including trend posts, posts on models, and of course the obligatory OOTD. I really do love her blog.

lisette loves

Lisette from Lisette Loves:
Where do I start. Hm. Let’s just start with the fact that I LOVE LISETTE. I probably sound like a creep, in fact I do, but I don’t care. I remember first stumbling across her blog and thinking it was sort of average, and leaving it to the back of my mind, then one day when I asked for links to face masks recipes, and her’s popped up, I did re-think, and decide that actually I truly love Lisette’s blog. Again, like Alex’s blog, it is very simple yet it has so much character to it. I talk to Lisette quite a lot on Twitter and she seems like the most loveliest person ever. And to put the cherry on top (of the milkshake she is drinking), Lisette also has YouTube which makes me love her even more. Lisette recently guest blogged for me, make sure to check it out on my main blog page.

wedding dreams

Stephanie & Sam from A Wedding Dream:
As you can probably tell, Stephanie & Sam are getting married! Steph from Stephanie Dreams started the blog to collect all the ideas and memories in one place to share with the world and people like me who love gorgeous photography. On ‘A Wedding Dream’ you can find inspiration for weddings and also Steph & Sam’s engagement party pictures which are utterly adorable. If any of you can remember, I actually interviewed Stephanie absolutely yonks ago, here, so if you want to know more about her then head back to that old post!

Here are a few other blogs I absolutely adore: The Briar Rose Blog//The Life of A Fashion Nerd//Sarah Loves//Love Taza

I definitely think you should all go out and check out these amazing blogs. You may just find a gem which picks your fancy! Make sure to tell me your favourite blogs in the comments below!

Lisette’s DIY Simple Gold Tube Necklace

By August 5, 2013 DIY & Lifestyle, Fashion

Hello everyone! Today’s guest post is by Lisette from Lisette Loves (one of my all time fave bloggers)! She’s put together a cute and simple DIY, so enjoy!

tolly1tollydiy2tolly5

Lisette: I spotted some gold tube necklaces and bracelets on various blogs, but I can’t seem to find them anywhere so I had a go at making my own. All you need is dried macaroni, gold marker pen, embroidery thread, and a toothpick.

Step 1: Colour the macaroni with the marker.
Step 2: String the macaroni onto the thread. (You can use a toothpick to help)
Step 3: Create a loop on one end of the string.
Step 4: Tie the other end of the string to the macaroni to create a pasta-toggle.

I chose to make mine with brightly coloured threads and layer them up together but you could string them onto a thin chain or fully string the necklace to create a more solid effect.

I hope you enjoyed my guest blog! If you’d like to check out my blog, click the links below!

Recent Purchases: Jumble Sales, IKEA & ASOS

By April 8, 2013 DIY & Lifestyle, Fashion, My Style

Bonjourno! I hope you are well young soul! (Read this phrase again, in an Irish accent) It is that time again where I have want to show you what I have bought recently. Most of it is from Jumble Sales (Vide Greniers) but there are 1 or 2 other things in their too! All of the things I have bought recently have either been fashion related or just super cute, so here goes! A few other things I have bought recently will be in a post like this next week too!

recent1 recent2Scarf – €0.50: Since watching Ingrid (missglamorazzi on YouTube) and Fleur (FleurDeForce on YouTube), I have fallen in love with summer scarves! This one is super soft, and has really cute colours on which match my new Keds, and it was only 50 cents, which is like… 45p?
Keds – £37.50: My new pair are b.eaut.i.ful. I have grown out of my navy blue pair, and ASOS saved me by selling me these blue floral ones for half the price than Schuh, or the Keds site.
Clear Bowl – €1.99: I use this little gem to hold my hair clips and ties. It’s from IKEA and is really simple, and has cute doily detailing on it, I blame Lisette Henry for blogging about a similar one, I seriously have fallen in love with cute bowls and plates!
China Models – €1.00 and FREE!: Ever since I bought a similar rabbit head (NOT a real one), I have kept my eyes open. I use the blue man to hold any dainty necklaces around it’s neck, and then the rabbit, I keep on my desk, which was free! 🙂 They are super cute, and add character to my room! Aw…
Floppy Hat – €2.00: I am blaming another blogger *cough cough* Megan McInn, as she simply looks gorgeous when wearing one, so I decided to try one out myself. There are plenty on eBay, but this one was there and then, and only cost me 2 euros. BARGAIN!
Style Feed: My mum got me this as an early birthday present. It’s similar to my book ‘The Style Diaries’ as it features loads of bloggers which are well established, but some you may not of heard of. In this book, the blogs are picked out by Susie Bubble, and I found out some interesting stuff. I’m not saying it’s bad, but I do prefer ‘The Style Diaries’ as it has more blogs, and more unique ones, but either are good!
Daisy Purse – €0.20: OMG. I am so glad I got this. It cost me 20 CENTS?! There were a few others, but this one caught my eye the most, as daisies are really big this season. It is also sort of ‘Marc Jacob-esque’, I think and it will look great for summer. It’s a sort of plastic material, but that means it is waterproof, and will be good for keeping my sunglasses in.

recent3 recent4Kenzo Jungle Trousers: I bought these in this massive sports hall in a small village, where there were rows and rows of clothes. A lady selling these, asked what size I was and I didn’t really like the pattern, but I was asked to try them on. They fitted like a dream, and were comfortable. They looked nice and were Kenzo, so they were in my bag, with in a matter of seconds. €3.00 and they will look great with a t-shirt I bought at the same place (Sorry, it was still drying so I couldn’t take a picture, but it’s got an elephant on it!)
Yellow Floral Skirt: My mum picked me up this. I think it’s really cute, and will look great with a frilly blouse, and my new House of Holland socks (Darn, forgot to photograph them!). I have a pink one similar, but I love the colour yellow, so this is even better!
H Morgan Demin Jacket – €0.50: I haven’t owned a Denim Jacket for ages. The last one I had was when I was about 6 (The one here.) and I finally found one! It’s a little bit too short, but will be a nice ‘cropped’ size for summer. I will be wearing this A LOT. Plus, it was under a euro.. soo… I’m a happy chicken 🙂
Black and White Trainers – €5.00: Oops. I may have bought another pair of shoes… These are quite unusual actually, as they are converse style, but have a pointed toe, and are also shiny. I thought I’d get them for a bit of a change up, you know, try a new style and all!
Dr Martens 1460s Black Shimmer Boots – €30.00: YUP! If you don’t know already (Somebody obviously didn’t read my last post…) I now own a pair of Dr Martens! Yes, these babies slipped onto my feet yesterday and I love them! My dream was to get a black pair, but I couldn’t really say no, as these are my size and very cheap. They are sort of grey-ish, green-ish black metallic colour which I have decided, I LOVE! Seriously cannot wait to wear these. Don’t think I will be in a hurry though, it’s chucking it down 🙁
