Motel Rocks 'Penny Babydoll Dress' vs USC 'Miso Stripe Skater Dress' // Dupes

Hey guys, 

Okay, so who hasn't been lusting over the gorgeous Penny dress from Motel Rocks for the past few months? Anyone? Well I've wanted it for far too long but have never wanted to pay (as usual)
£45 for it. I've been searching for a few cheaper alternatives and have never found one just right until now! I have to say, if you'd much rather have a better quality dress I would probably go with the Motel Dress, but as I'm the time of person who would much rather get the look of something for a cheaper price, the USC dress is perfect for me. I love the contrasting stripes and think it's perfect for this season. I cant wait to pair it with a leather biker jacket and some boots or with some neon accessories! 
How would you style it?

Cheap High Street Summer Heels Alternatives // Ebay Gems

Hey guys! 

Spring is upon us, and summer is close behind! Maybe not here in Glasgow quite yet, but definitely in the rest of the UK - not fair. I've been lusting over so many heels recently from Topshop, Office, River Island etc and as most of them are £50+ I took it upon myself to find some cheaper alternatives for you all. I came across an amazing eBay store called 'My1stWish' they sell amazing dupes and by the pictures they look like they're pretty good quality. I absolutely love the huge heels on all of these shoes, and I reckon they'd look adorable paired with some frilly socks!

Nike Blackboard II ( Nike Airforce 1's Dupes?) // Shoe Unboxing

Hey guys,

How hot are these kicks? I'm absolutely in love with them!

So, I had been lusting after some Nike Airforce 1's for a while but I wasn't quite sure about the bulkiness of them, I don't really think I suit a chunky shoe. The soles and the velcro strap around the ankles on the Airforce's are pretty thick. I love the look of completely white high tops I just needed to find some that were perfect for me. After eyeing up the Airforces & some Reebok Classics I came across these beauties in Sports Direct, reduced to £40.00 from £60.00! I think they're a lot like the Airforce 1's just a much slimmer version.

I would say the sizing of them comes up a little big, so I would advise going down half a size. They are by far the most comfortable pair of shoes that I own, I can't wait to wear them with my midi dresses/skirts, lots of gold jewellery  and a leather biker jacket - so look out for future posts featuring these. How would you style them?!

Recent Thrift Finds // Haul


Hey guys!
It's been a while since I've done a haul of all the things I find in my local charity shops, as you all know I am trying my hardest to save money for my holiday in August so more thrifting has been on the agenda. I noticed that my previous thrifting haul had gained a fair few views and comments, and my pile of finds had been growing rapidly, so a haul it is! I've been quite lucky with my finds recently, I've managed to come across some pretty great brands, some even designer. Look out for these items in future posts as I have a few outfits planned with them. I almost feel a bit mean posting thrift hauls, because I know personally when I read other bloggers thrift hauls I tend to feel slightly envious that I'm unable to find things as good as them in my local charity shops nevertheless, I hope you enjoy!

Happy 1st Birthday!

Hey guys, 
So, I cannot believe it's been a year since I started my little blog. Safe to say I've loved each and every little post, follower, comment & view! There have been a few times where I've felt I have lacked motivation this year but then again, what blogger doesn't from time to time? There have also been times where I have had so many idea's and just not enough time to blog them all! 

So, as my 'blog birthday' wish, I wish that in the next year I can make more and more time for my blog and be able to use all the ideas I have. Also another thing I will do more of is post outfits! I alway tell myself that I will but I'm such a perfectionist and feel my photos never turn out as well as other people's OOTD's and such - maybe that's another lesson, to learn not to compare myself to others. 

Nevertheless, this next blogging year can only be better than the last - bring on the new posts! Lots of outfits,  plenty of hauls, and manny, many more eBay finds! 

Thank you!
