My Favourite Blog Posts of 2014…

By December 30, 2014 General

With Christmas behind us and the New Year just around the corner (2 days!), I thought I would round up some of my favourite posts of this year. One of my goals for 2014 was to really push myself with my content and would definitely say I have done that! I don’t know how amazing they have been but you guys still seem to be reading so… I’ll take that as a ‘pretty good’ 🙂 Hehe! So, if you want to flick through my archives, here is a list of my favourite blog posts from two thousand and fourteen…

Why Do I Blog?

To celebrate 2 years of blogging, I wrote a post on why exactly I blog. It was a nice reminder for me so I know why I started, and for inspiration when I’m having a bit of writers block! Read here. 

Getting Ready for Prom

I styled a few pieces for one of my favourite brands, New Look. It’s one of my favourite style posts, and you guys seemed to like it a lot too! Read here.

Fast Food Fashion

A slightly different post which I was extremely proud of. Mixing food with fashion, in a menu style format. What’s not to love? Read here.

RIP to Magazines

An opinionated post on the death of magazines. What is your opinion? Take a look and let me know. #RIPCompany 🙁 Read here.

Tennis Courts & Dr Martens

Another of my favourite style posts! Taken at an old abandoned tennis court. Very proud of Papa Posh for these awesome images! Read here.

The Vicious Circle of Fat vs Thin

A hard one to write, but worth it. Quite a few of you could relate to it and found it helpful, so I’m glad I put it out into the open air! Read here.

Chanel A/W Inspired Girl

Once again another My Style post. These were a spur of the moment batch of pictures but I really liked the out come. I hope to do more of these! Read here.

Please do let me know which blog posts have been your faves of 2014! I’d love to know in the comments 🙂 Happy New Year if we don’t speak again, I hope 2015 is filled with thousands of lovely memories.

  Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

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 🙂

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! 🙂

autumn 1

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 & 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)

my style ootd fashion blog phiney pet my style ootd fashion blog phiney pet my style ootd fashion blog phiney pet my style ootd fashion blog phiney pet

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! ^.^

my style ootd fashion blog phiney petmy style ootd fashion blog phiney pet

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!

my style ootd fashion blog phiney pet my style ootd fashion blog phiney pet

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*

my style ootd fashion blog phiney pet my style ootd fashion blog phiney pet

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 😀

Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

My Life, My Style: French Exploration

By August 18, 2014 DIY & Lifestyle, My Style

Well hello’ there ladies and gents. I decided it was time I did a bit more than just an outfit post and took some lifestyle pictures too… so do excuse the rather cheesy use of a comma in this post title… it sounds like some sort of bad ITV2 reality show! Anyway, lets get on with this… oh and wish Papa Posh a belated Happy Birthday seeing as these pictures were taken on that day!

The first place we visited was a place called Auch. We’d been there before but only in the winter so it was so weird to see it with real, actual, living people wondering around. There’s a massive cathedral, and so many tiny little streets to wonder round. The thing about France is that you pass so many random, freaky things every time, it makes it a real adventure!

Coming out of Auch we stumbled across this huge Bric-o-Brac center… full. of. junk. It would be the sort of place to go to if you wanted a really bohemian, mix match house full of random bits and bobs. I got a bit excited when I saw the clothes though, unfortunately there were no awesome bargains (darn it!), but it was fun to look around. Mama Posh and I jokingly decided which of the old arm chairs we would pick if we had to… I decided that I would go for the mustard ones, and perhaps the paisley one too. I don’t know, there’s something kind of cool about them?!

my style asos footlocker converse diy floral crown

We then found another weird place which was basically a ‘brocante’ fair (brocante basically means junk or odds and ends, just with a few more antique pieces thrown in), it had one bit which was a church full of really expensive pieces, really beautiful. I found this stunning mustard post box too… I must have a thing for mustard at the moment, it’s so pretty! To top it all off I had a Lipton Ice Tea after. It’s probably my favourite drink at the moment, it’s so refreshing! What’s yours?! Tell me in the comments… maybe I’ll discover something new to sip on!

What I Wore: Stripey Top (Saint James), Denim Camo Skirt (ASOS), Silver Belt (Unknown), Sunglasses (Topshop), Sunflower Floral Crown (DIY) & Leopard Converse Hi-Tops (Footlocker)

So let’s get down to business… the outfit kinda’ business! I know this outfit is kind of similar to my last outfit but who cares… we were travelling quite a bit and clothes are meant to be worn more than once, non? This outfit is pretty simple, a little french if you want to say that, with nautical stripes and a denim skirt! I haven’t worn this skirt in forever, and it’s about time I did seeing as it’s getting on the short side now. I’m not sure what else to say about this outfit… it’s kind of self explanatory in my opinion 🙂

But on second thoughts there is always time to explain the details! Let’s talk about my new floral crown for example! I picked up some more false flowers from a jumble sale for about three euros fifty after some haggling, but my brother says the white peonies look like onions and now I’m self conscious that they do. Do they?! If they do, let’s just comfort my little soul and say the sunflowers definitely look like sunflowers! It’s my first DIY elastic floral crown and after 2 burnt fingers I’d definitely say I’ll stick to alice band ones…! Another cheeky OOTD with my Converse. I do love them, very very much.

Well that’s it folks. I’ll leave you with this picture where I look really disheveled from sitting in the car most of the day. I’m also half smiling due to the fact people were walking past and I was trying to take a nice picture without looking really stupidly vain… ah well, c’est la vie! If you do like this kind of post, do let me know in the comments and I shall try and do some more when I can. Speak soooooon!

Sisterly Style: Balloon, Baby & Blue Hues*

By August 3, 2014 My Style

After my last post’s excitment, I have another super lovely post, and it features somebody who looks a tiny weeny bit like me… and a baby! Zazzy, a personalised jewellery brand asked me to try out their service and to celebrate International Best Friend Day (today!) at the same time, so I’ve wrangled in my sister for a double OOTD!

What bracelet would you design for your BFF… or sister?! Leave a comment…
sisterly style zazzy jewellery songs silliness and such

sisterly style zazzy jewellery songs silliness and such

First let’s do a little introduction to my sister… her name is Saskia, and is also a blogger (at Songs, Silliness & Such), she’s erm… 12 years older than me and definitely counts as a BFF. Saskia is the mummy of little Diggory, my (pretty much) 10 month year old nephew (see his cuteness below). Zazzy asked us both to design bracelets for each other, and we are both obsessed! They’re brilliant quality and are perfect seeing as we are both pretty slim… adjustable bracelets are the best! I find it funny how we both went for gold… read on for why we chose the different symbols!

sisterly style zazzy jewellery songs silliness and such

sisterly style zazzy jewellery songs silliness and such

sisterly style zazzy jewellery songs silliness and such

sisterly style zazzy jewellery songs silliness and such

What I Wore: Crochet Top (Jumble Sale), Noah Noah Tulle Skirts £7.99 (Oxfam), Floral Crown (DIY), Jelly Sandals (Supermarket), Slogan Elastic Bracelets (Claire’s)*, Lip Necklace (ASOS) & Symbol Bracelet (Designed by Saskia @ Zazzy)*

I like the colour blue, and I like green, and I also think purple compliments them both very well, so this outfit seemed just right. Saskia kindly bought her and I matching lip necklaces, and seeing as my bracelet is matching purple, my DIY floral crown tied it all in. I love this little crochet crop top as it’s sort of bohemian, yet it looks funky and bright. My tulle skirts make another appearance of course, and some how feel a bit Hawaiian in this outfit?!

Saskia on Tolly’s bracelet: Ever since Tolly was just a baby we’ve had a very close relationship, with many conversations ending in tears of laughter (or hideous snorts). I choose symbols that would reflect this with the term ‘LOL’ and a cute smiley, and picked the purple chord to go with her blog header (because I know her blog is so important to her). Typically Tolly has said she’s going to use this bracelet as her sarcasm stamp – so don’t get on the wrong side of her or she’ll be holding up wrist for a swift ‘LOL’ ie – you’re not funny. Unfortuantely I think I’ve already been on the receiving end of one… Still love you though, and my bracelet too! 

sisterly style zazzy jewellery songs silliness and such

What Saskia Wore: Blue Maxi Dress (Boohoo), Necklaces (Rings & Tings)*, River Island Multi Friendship Bracelet, Spotty Flats (TKMaxx) & Symbol Bracelet (Designed by Tolly @ Zazzy) What Diggory Wore: Soldier Romper (Boots)

At one stage I feel like mine and Saskia’s styles were quite similar…. we both went through a stage of loving aztec prints (I think we did…), but now our styles are completely different. Saskia loves simple pieces with pops of colour, as well as things which are super comfortable, so it’s quite a strong contrast. Although she doesn’t think it, she does have an eye for cute things, for example her spotty shoes she bought from our TKMaxx browse… I love them! They’re super cute, and seeing as they are monochrome, they go with most of her wardrobe. It is a simple outfit, but I like it! Pastel coloured cuteness. Speaking of cuteness, look. at. Diggory! He’s the cheekiest little monkey. I like his outfit too!

Tolly on Saskia’s bracelet: Just like what Saskia mentioned, we do enjoy a good laugh, so I thought it would be nice for her bracelet to feature lots of smiles and happiness. I think it will be a nice reminder when she’s down (*cough* missing me of course) to just keep smiling. The star was another cute little symbol 🙂 I chose blue because Saskia seems to wear the colour quite often so it will match most of her outfits.

I really enjoyed doing this little outfit post with Saskia! If you want to see more of her make sure to check out her blog and Twitter. Pssst, have you seen my big news? I’m releasing my first collection… say what?! Speak soon!

(This post is not sponsored. Zazzy kindly sent me and Saskia a bracelet to style up, so I decided to do a nice little post featuring them. Read my full PR disclaimer here.) Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

My Style: A La Plage… To The Beach*

By July 22, 2014 My Style

The other week we popped along to one of my favourite beaches, which is actually a quarry made into an adventure beach, and it’s really quite fun! I wanted to take some snaps of a summery outfit I popped together featuring a few new pieces to my wardrobe, and I hope you like this My Style post as much as I do! A la plage…. 

What do you like to wear to the beach? Let me know in the comments…my style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pommy style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pommy style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pommy style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pomWhat I Wore: Blue Daisy Kimono £18.00 – Now £12.00 (Kylie – M&Co.)*, Striped Top (St. James), Denim Shorts (Jumble Sale), Leopard Converse Hi-Tops €19.99 (Footlocker) & Pom Pom Headband £3.50 (ASOS)

Going to the beach for me is one of the hardest places to dress for. You don’t want to wear too much, or too little, but then you also don’t want to dress completely different to how you usually do… so for this trip, I went for casual, bright and of course a clash of prints. My shorts and top are both comfortable and practical for slipping in and out off, and my new kimono (finally!) is the best cover up, ever. I’m not really sure how this outfit works so well, but it just kinda’ does. I think just putting touches of each colour here and there will make it all tie in, even if the prints are all completely different and a little bit bold.

my style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pom my style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pom my style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pomYou may have noticed in previous posts that I have been dying for a kimono, so when M&Co introduced me to their Kylie range, I went straight for them, and I’m so glad I picked this one! The print is awesome, and it’s the perfect flowy-ness. It’s a lot better quality than I would have thought, and seems pretty versatile even with the bold daisy print. My floral/random crown collection featured this little pom-pom number and the yellow perfectly matches my beautiful new shoes…

my style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pom my style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pom my style m&co footlocker asos kimono pom pomA couple of days before we headed to the beach, we visited Montpellier near the coast, and one of the shops I happened to pop into was Footlocker. The massive sale was on, and I happened to notice a pair of bright yellow leopard print Converses on the side… expecting them to still be over €30 or €40, I was absolutely stunned to see ‘€19.99 from €74.99’ (less than £16) on the price tag. Mama Posh kindly treated me to them and I am so happy! My first ever pair of Converse, and boy they are gorgeous! Although they are bright, the yellow is the perfect mustard shade which means they are a touch more versatile… what do you think?!

So there we have it! I hope you liked this post as much as I did writing it 🙂 Just to leave you on an exciting note… one of my upcoming posts *fingers crossed* will be an exciting announcement 😀 I’m literally buzzing just thinking of it! Eeee!

My Style: Wearing Pink On A Wednesday*

By July 2, 2014 My Style

Sorry for the very un-original title of this My Style post, but it’s Wednesday and I’m wearing pink so, it was kind of obligatory… duh. I like this outfit and I hope you do too 🙂 Sorry about the weird blue glow… darn you white balance!  Make sure to leave a comment telling me how you would wear pink on a Wednesday!

pink 12my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirtspink 1my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirtsWhat I Wore: No Photos Please T-Shirt £14.99 (Lush T-Shirts)*, Pink Dress (Marks & Spencer), Denim Shorts (Jumble Sale), Barbie Socks £2.50 (Primark), Jelly Shoes (Supermarket) & Floral Ear Headband £3.50 (River Island at ASOS)

I never knew I was a pink kinda’ person, but turns out, I really am. I had to wear my pink taffeta dress because I own no pink skirts… very tempted to make it into a skirt actually, seeing as it’s about 7 years old – no. joke. I love the contrast of the pastel and bright pink though, and the slogan top makes such an awesome statement. Plus, it’s kinda’ ironic, seeing as I’m a fashion blogger and all… lol.  What d’ya think? Too much pink, or just right? I’m thinking the latter, but not sure the French around here would agree.. I changed the dress for some trousers when I went out *hides behind curtains*

my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirts my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirts my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirtsWhen I was in the UK recently, I tried on this super cute headband in River Island, knowing that it was also on ASOS, so when I saw it for half the price in the ASOS sale, I bought it immediately. It’s adorable! I thought I would prefer the multi-coloured one, but I’m so glad I picked the pink! I also love the gold band… it makes it look a lot more expensive than it was! It’s also a great headband which can be worn with a topknot as it’s just small enough, which is very handy in these warmer months! Oh and FYI, the pool is up and running, and most days I take a dip! Fun, fun, fun!

my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirts my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirtsAs I mentioned earlier, this dress is kinda’ on the small side which means my denim shorts have to be worn underneath! I’m a big fan of denim at the moment, and these are again… adorable! I love the little trim and how it pokes out underneath the skirt… cute-ness! Speaking of denim… I really want a denim/acid-wash style drop arm vest with a high neck… anyone know of where to get one? Thanks if you do suggest anywhere!

my style pink on wednesday mean girls outfit lush t-shirtsAnd finally… shoes! I wore my new Barbie socks (featured in my new haul, watch it here!with my jelly shoes, and I quite like the combo! Due to Primark’s bad packaging, when I pulled the label off the socks, it pulled a thread with it meaning there is now a hole on the bottom. Not very nice! I like them nonetheless though, and it just adds that little bit more pink to the outfit!

I shall speak to you soon! I have some exciting things in the pipeline, which I should be able to tell you about soon! The only hint I can give is that it will be the 2nd time in which one of my goals for 2014 will be coming true! Eeep! 🙂 Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

My Style: Getting Ready for The New Look Prom*

By June 7, 2014 My Style

Hello! Yes, I am still very much alive. I’ve been super busy this week and am having to cram taking blog pictures into one (extremely beautiful, hot and sunny) day before I’m back off home to the UK again! I got asked a while back by New Look if I wanted to style some pieces from their new New Look Prom range as part of their new campaign, so obviously… I said yes! By the way… I did an article on teen blogging for Issue 4 of Blogosphere Magazine if you want to take a look… 😉

Beauty // What I Wore: Telescopic Mascara (L’Oreal), Silver Eyeliner (Rimmel Scandal-Eyes), Lipgloss in Rosy Dawn (Burt’s Bees)*, Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom (Burt’s Bees)*, Perfume (Britney Spears), Lemon Cuticle Butter (Burt’s Bees)*, Snow Me White Nail Polish (Sinful Colours) & A Roll In The Hague Nail Polish (OPI)

I don’t wear a lot of make-up… I skip any sort of foundation or BB cream, I just go with a tiny bit of mascara and something on my lips… I received some lovely bits from Burt’s Bees, and have been testing out their new lip colour range. The tinted lip balm is like melted butter on your lips… it’s so silky and soft! The lip gloss is pretty darn good too! The packaging is lovely and it isn’t sticky! A win win really 🙂 The colour of both products are so nude, but give off a really girly and simple look! Love, love, love!

For my nails I went with a white Sinful Colours polish and it only cost me £1.99! It stays for ages and doesn’t chip that much like other polishes. The colour is very opaque and for the price, I definitely recommend it! I went for orange on my toes and I think it looks very summery!

Fashion // What I Wore: Printed Dress (Primark), Pastel Petticoat Tutu (M&S), Embellished Mesh Shell Top (Jumble Sale), Clear Orange Clutch £9.99 (New Look)* &  White Strap Peeptoe Heels £19.99 (New Look)*

When I received my gorgeous accessories from New Look I felt like Olivia Purvis (she’s gorgeous). I have never owned such a grown-up pair of heels and these are gorgeous! They’re actually surprisingly comfortable (…until I attempt wearing them for a long period of time…), and look so sophisticated. Let’s not get started on the clutch… it’s soooo funk-ay! I love how it’s clear yet it still has the section to hide things away… super practical if you ask me! I knew straight away what I had to pair them with and of course my classic Primark dress made an appearance!

Too make the dress a little bit more ‘prom like’, I added on top my bargain mesh shell top and my M&S pastel tutu for va-va-voom underneath the skirt of the dress. The colours all match really nicely and makes the outfit more laid-back and fun for such an occasion. I was also sent a lovely embellished belt which is sooo pretty, it just didn’t fit in with this outfit perfectly. You can have a look at here if you like!

What do you think when you think of a Prom outfit? I just think my style! I love colour and embellishments just make it even more fun. This outfit is also very practical as you can move and swish all you like. Get on that dance floor baby! Ooh, we must mention my hair! I decided to curl it, but last night I plaited it and it just made it a ton easier to do! I love messy beachy waves, it suits me the best! I haven’t curled my hair in ages… it takes forever and I’m never usually happy with it, but this result was quite satisfactory! Hooray! Also… do you like the way I have edited these pictures? I found a tutorial about using gradients with curves and I like it! Oui or non?

I am very self-conscious about my feet… without the wonder’s of Photoshop they would look horrid… trust me… but some how this nail polish and shoe combo cheers them up a bit! They look more lady like and not so ‘ew’ from winter, which is a win. The strap on the toes distracts them and my feet actually look presentable… sort of.. just take away the fact they look wonky… yup okay my feet are weird and I can’t hide the fact.

So that’s what I would wear to prom if I were going! What would you wear? Make sure you let me know in the comments! As I mentioned at the beginning, I’m away this coming week so please don’t expect a post for a while… sorry! I will be back, I promise 🙂 See you soon girls and guys!

My Style: Blue Blue Pretty Pleats*

By May 4, 2014 My Style

Before I start this new My Style OOTD, I would just like to say how happy I am with my blog right now. I feel very excited about the content I am pushing out and what I have to come. The only thing I would say is that I would love if you guys could give some more feedback! I’d love to know if you enjoy my recent posts as much as I do! It would mean a lot. Thank you guys! Love you all 🙂 Exciting news too… I just purchased some soft box lights for YouTube and taking other kinds of images *gulps* 😀

my style ootd fashion blog sugarhill boutique rings and tings my style ootd fashion blog sugarhill boutique rings and tings my style ootd fashion blog sugarhill boutique rings and tings What I Wore: Pretty Pleat Blouse (Sugarhill Boutique)*, Pastel Blue Petticoat Tutu £20.00 (Marks & Spencer), SOLDIER Heels (ASOS), Squared Round Sunglasses (Topshop – Sold Out), Gold Camera Necklace (Gift – Don’t know where from!) & Wingspan Bird Ring £5.50 (Rings & Tings)*

As soon as this gorgeous (and sheer – the reason for the vest…) blouse from Sugarhill Boutique arrived, I knew I had to pair it with a light blue skirt. Originally I was going to opt for my ASOS pleated midi skirt, but it was a bit crinkled and I was in a hurry, so I threw on my tutu instead, and I am glad I did! To be honest, this outfit is slightly out of my comfort zone in a way… it’s very floaty but I think the way I accessorised it, makes it more me and a bit more funk-ay! The blouse isn’t just how it seems though… it has other secrets which I will mention later on 😉 Ooh ooh, I’m wearing my hair how I used to ages and ages ago! I went through a phase of wearing it like this every single day and I’m falling back in love with it!

It’s beautiful! I didn’t even realise it was pleated on the back until I took it out the packet. I think it just makes it even more amazing. It looks like a normal sheer blouse from the front (with a cute little heart pocket and matching top button), but then BOOM! A pleated back! As you’ll probably know from the amount of times I have said, I’m on a blouse high, and this is such a gorgeous addition. It could be worn in so many different ways, even more casually as the back really does most of the talking. I think when the weather perks up a bit more (saying that, it was beautiful today), I will have to invest in a bandeau because my vest really doesn’t make it look particularly amazing… 😉 Unfortunately I cannot wear a ‘sex-ay’ bra because um…. yup… *cries with laughter*

Let’s talk accessories shall we? My beautiful sister (who I can now officially ‘plug’ because she has her own blog – baby/mummy related) got me this little gold necklace a while back as a present, and I think it is so cute because it has a little camera on (i.e a refrence to my blawg), and it looks adorable with the gold heart button! This outfit was probably one of the first times I have mixed jewellery colours too! I’ve always thought that gold and silver would look funny together, but I think my ring actually compliments the whole look!

I ordered these awesome (and now sold out) Topshop sunglasses along with two other things (haul coming soon!), after a wish I wished for (ha) got actioned on Crowdwish! If you don’t know what I am talking about, Crowdwish is a site where you can post wishes/vote for wishes, and the ones which get the most votes, will be actioned! I’ve so far got a £30 Topshop voucher, and one of my own personal wishes actioned! Pretty cool huh? You can literally wish for anything as long as you think other people will vote for it too… so don’t go wishing for your brother’s girlfriend’s aunty’s granddad’s godmother to be able to fly… I wish you good luck on that one! 😉 The sunglasses remind me of the Jeremy Scott wing ones, so I’m really chuffed that I ordered them!

The other day I slipped on my lovely ASOS SOLDIER heels to find out that I no longer fit in them… so I thought. I then realised that I had left the innersoles in them! *slaps forehead* I’ve been wearing them non-stop this past week, and I simply adore them. ASOS shoes are looking good at the moment! I believe these are no longer available, but if you’re wondering just in-case, they’re really comfortable and the chunkiness will toughen up any outfit! Oh and can we admire those gorgeous flowers? Such a beautiful array of colours!

That’s it for me folks! See ya’ soooooon! Only 5 days until the Company Magazine Style Blogger Awards shortlist comes around… let’s all keep our fingers crossed that TDPFashion makes it for the 2nd year in a row *crosses fingers, toes and any other ‘crossable’ body part* 😉
