Outfit post: Sweet Little Devil at Stockport hat museum

I decided I wanted to try mobile posting just so that I can post more often. I don’t often have the chance to take great pictures of my outfits, but I would like them all preserved somewhere so I thought I’d give this a go!

It’s funny, in Japan I think this type of mobile blogging is quite popular but it seems like you have to have very staged and produced photos in the West. Interesting little difference.

I visited Stockport hat museum with some friends and wore this darkly sweet outfit.

Outfit Post: An Ode to Teenage Me

There is something very aggressively teenage about provocative slogan t-shirts. Examples of why I’ll never be taken seriously as an adult from my own collection include;

  • A tight, black t-shirt which states “PARENTAL GUIDANCE. EXPLICIT CONTENT”
  • A jumper with “BITCH 01” emblazoned across the front
  • Another jumper which I cover up when there’s children around that just says “SUCK A FUCK” outright.

I can’t explain what compels me to purchase such things, but I’ve gone and done it again.

Gluten Free Food in Liverpool: American Pizza Slice

I’ve mentioned more than once on this blog (I think) that I’m gluten intolerant. I’ve wanted to share all my favourite places to eat and what I make of new GF offerings for a while, but never actually sat down and done it…until today! I’ve also wanted to write down a comparison of all the store bought gluten free breads I’ve ever had but it doesn’t really fit the glamourous fashion thing I’m trying to do here, but I will do it eventually though because you need to know how I feel about bread! For my birthday (July 3rd so talk about late-blogging) I decided to get dressed up and hit the town – but every good party girl needs to eat and American Pizza Slice just released a new gluten free pizza so I thought I’d try it out. Here’s how I overdressed for pizza:

Outfit Post: Enjoying Tropical England…

I haven’t really felt like blogging much in post-brexit vote England, the rainy weather pretty much reflects my mood on the whole thing – even though my outfit is the exact opposite. I know I don’t look what people consider to be “foreign” whatever that is, but my family are immigrants who came here in 91/92 to flee a war in our home country. For a long time I have been very proud to be a citizen of this country but at the moment I am bit anxious, a bit unsure as to whether I feel safe and who in the streets would tell me to leave if they knew where I was born. I’m very lucky to have the privilege that I do in being white and having an English accent, so I try and use these traits to speak for people who cannot speak for themselves in this country and this language and who have been and will be scapegoated and picked on in this country in the future. I feel lucky to live in Liverpool which is such an accepting and friendly place. I am trying to be positive and hopeful and remain outspoken on issues which affect other people who come to this country as refugees and immigrants such as myself but for now please just have patience and let me heal  and please enjoy these photos of a lovely day at the Tate Liverpool.

Outfit Post: Late Light Night

I know light night was 2 weeks ago but I forgot to write about what an amazing night I had. Which is all the more reason to write about it, but when you’re having a really good time its really easy to forget to make a post about it.

I actually wore lolita for the night! It was a fun night out after work with my boyfriend and I wanted to look nice. I tried on a few different outfits in the morning and I just didn’t want to wear any of them. I had this cute, summery gingham outfit on with Vivienne Westwood 3 strap heels and my Dr Marten’s Heart Shaped bag. (Also my work is super cool with my fashion sense, but obviously I don’t wear my more outlandish outfits to client meetings)

Outfit Post:”It’s like a Grease look but in 2016″ – A nice lady at my hairsalon

My obsession with this Sonia Rykiel jumper will never end. Sorry about the phone camera selfie collage but I was spending the day with my mother and having a lovely time and I took these in about 5 minutes while she went to the bathroom!! Desperate, but this overall look was too good to miss.

Loving the amount of pink in my life at the moment to be honest.
