Spring/Summer 2014 Style

Whenever I am looking for some new outfit ideas on a store's website, I also look at similarities between items to see what is in at the moment. And I have found a couple trends and the cutest pieces of S/S 14.

Kimono's:

Instead of a cover-up, swap it for a kimono. Fringed or floral, tribal or tassels, there are so many options to choose from. Personally I prefer the florally ones as they are most similar to the original kimono styles.
Here are some picks:

Houndstooth:

A stylish pattern and monochrome, this trend is 2 in 1. If it's small, it can give your outfit a preppy edge, but if it's large it can make you style a little more grungy.
Here are some picks:

Daisies:

This flower can be cartoon or not and the dot of yellow just makes you feel happy.
Here are some picks:

So there are three trends for this summer and spring. Hope you enjoyed.

16 Fashion Questions Tag

I feel like I now post twice a day, one on how I am feeling and one random post. Well today's randoom post is a tag, which you can probably tell from the title. So let's get into it:

1.I love to shop for my clothes at...
-New Look
-H and M (As of recently)
-Topshop
-Hollister
I know, pretty generic answers for a teen but those are truly the shops I buy my clothes from.

2. Store you like to visit but usually don't buy from...
Primark. I always go when there is nothing that I like but never go when there is. It's a shame since the prices are so cheap.

3.Last accessory you bought...
A bag from accessorize, I spoke about it in my 'Oh dear, Another update' post. I love the lilac for spring.

4.Do you own something you've never worn? What?
Nothing that I have bought myself. I have some hand me downs that don't fit me. And a top that I made at school in Textiles. I don't have the money to buy items that I feel so-so on.
(Ten minutes later, I realised that I own some leg warmers that I have never worn in 4 years).

5. I put a lot of thought into what I wear, throw my clothes on quickly or just like to be comfortable...
A mix of them all really. Most of my clothes aren't extremely stylish except for some items that I have bought within the last year. Most of them are just the basics or garments that I bought when I thought being fashionable was based on the brands you wear (e.g. Hollister, Jack Wills (which are just comfortable items, smothered in branding)) instead of the items you purchase. Basically, since I do not own many stylish clothes I find it hard to put thought into what I'd wear.

6. If I could, I would wear ______ every day...
Honestly, leggings. That is what I wear every time I get back from school because they are comfy and can be stylish.

7.My closet is mostly full of...
Hollister. I don't grow fast so I still fit into the items that I wore a couple years a go, which was ALL Hollister. Ever Christmas or Birthday I'd get at least one item from Hollister. So it has collected over the years.

8. Most comfortable item of clothing I own is my ...
Onesie. It is from New Look and is covered head to toe in fushcia hearts.

9. What hat would you never, ever wear?
The hats that the guards of all the royal buildings in London wear. They are around 20 inches tall and you cannot see out of them.

10. What's your style?
I have lots of different tastes. But I love Parisian fashion and the cute Tokyo styles. It is a mixture.

11. Favourite T-Shirt...
My bright green comfy Hollister one that my parents bought for me in New York. It is only because it is thin and floppy (I hate being restricted in clothing).

12. Favourite Dress...
I just had a clear out and all my dresses went as they no longer fit me. But again I had a strapless green one from Hollister with a bow at the front and dark pink flowers all over it.

13. Favourite sweater...
My cream cable knit jumper from New Look. It is extremely warm and looks great in Autumn.

14. Favourite shoes...
My chocolate Uggs which I have lasted in for around 3-4 years now, with fastly growing feet.

15. Favourite bag...
Probably my new accesorize bag again. But apart from that my Paul's Boutique Sacha Satchel (search it up on google). They discontinued it but it was the least chavvy seeing as it was PB. I have the tan and navy one and I got it for my birthday last year.

16. Favourite Earrings...
I actually do not have my ears pierced because I am a pussy. So I am going to have to leave that one unanswered.

Well that was the 16 Fashion Questions Tag. I hope you enjoyed it and feel free to leave your answers in the comments. Bye for now.

Walk in Wardrobe and Purple Hair

If you read my last post, then you know that lately I have been crushing over designer items. Well that has rolled over onto just clothes and closets. I have been watching closet tours back to back and window shopping on the internet. The thing is, I live in London where there is hardly any space in one room, let alone for a walk in closet. I also don't have enough clothes for my 35 inch cupboard style wardrobe, only half of it is full.

Also, I really want to dye my hair this summer. I have never dyed my hair before because my hair colour naturally darkens, I was born blonde and 14 years later, I have a medium brown tone. Also because a lot of my friends say that they like my hair colour. I didn't think that I could dye my hair for a few years since my school has a strict uniform policy which includes having unnatural hair colours. But last year, a girl in my class dyed her hair pink and blue for the summer, and I never had the idea to do that just for the summer, but I may do that this year since I have always wanted to dye my hair (if you have seen my pinterest then you can find my Hair Colour Bucket List. The link is on the right hand side). If I do, it will be semi-permanent because we only have 6 weeks summer in the UK and it is likely to be a purple or pink shade because I like the idea of them the most. What do you think?

In other news, I was in the charity shop today with my mum, and I found Poison Study (By Maria V. Snyder) in the book section. And I bought for only TWENTY FIVE PENCE! I know right.

Anyway, that was a random post... See you later

My Desire for Designer

Lately, I feel like I have been wanting what I can't afford. From Louboutin to Kate Spade, Michael Kors to Chanel. I am now obsessed with designer bags and shoes so much so that I am considering buying a knock off, or several.

So, I decided to write a post on designer items and fakes and all that jazz that comes with it.

Do I own any designer items? No. Unless you consider Paul's Boutique designer then no. I own a fake Louis Vuitton scarf, my mum bought a fake in two colours and chose which she preferred (I got the other one, but it is still gorgeous). I have nothing against fakes. I do know that for the designer it isn't too good, and that the quality can be awful, but if you desperately want your hands on that item, but could never ever afford it, I understand. But of course I prefer the real thing.

I think that I first got into designer items when I was around 11, young I know. My mum's friend was over, and she showed me her Pinterest page. It had images of her stunning Vera Wang wedding dress, her brand new Christian Louboutins and the actual Louis Vuitton scarf that I have a knock-off of. That was it, I found youtube videos of closet tours from people such as Jennifer Stano (Trophy Wife) and Paris Hilton (Do I need to explain who she is?). I didn't notice when someone was carrying a designer bag unless it was Chanel back then, but now it is a whole different story. I hadn't realised that my mum own three Mulberrys. Three? She also has two Longchamps (Okay, I am a little jealous, she doesn't even use one of them????). I have also started to notice when a girl at school has a designer bag, I even noticed one of my old best friend's carrying a Chanel (I kinda even hoped that it wasn't authentic).

So this was clearly going to happen. But only recently I have become obsessive over designer. I regularly go on the store's site to see what they have and how I can save up (Although I never will...) and I have watched many videos of 'Louboutin Collection' or 'Designer Bag Collection' hoping that one day, that could be me.

Most of you may think that this is unhealthy for a 14 year old (Yep I am only 14 and I wish that I own a Chanel bag) and that I could be leading myself into a materialistic lifestyle. But I am thankful for the things that I already own, I buy all my clothes myself (my parents only pay for my food and essentials, like toothpaste, electricity and underwear etc.) and if my parents ever do buy me things, it is only ever on my birthday or christmas. I see it as inspiration to motivate me to do well in the future and work hard at school, which I believe is a positive rather than a negative.

What are you desperate to have?

Oh Dear, Another Update

Clearly I haven't posted a substantial post here for a while. Oh well.
Last week my cat died. So I haven't really been here, on my other blog (mollymoonburn.blogspot.com) or on my youtube channel. I feel as if I am now recovering and I feel like I need to give some TLC to one of my little parts of the internet.

The other day I went shopping, and I bought myself about three items, so I felt like sharing them with you. First of all, I bought myself a new bag. It is from Accessorize and it is the Georgia winged handheld bag (I believe) in Lilac. I got it for £32 and it was the last one in the shop in that colour so I was super chuffed with myself for that. There are three other colours too, Navy, Green and Coral. I absolutely adore it as it has the wings (I have obviously been crushing over the Michael Kors Selma again...) and the lilac shade is perfect for spring. Also, if it was the last one then it must have been popular.

I also bought myself a pair of sunglasses from New Look since I broke my last pair on holiday because I had found out that zalfie was actually real (true story). I knew that I didn't want the generic aviators or ray-ban style as I always go for them, so instead I went for something a little more stylish. They were just £4.99 and are UV protected. I love that the round frames aren't too 70s as they have the mink toned frames that give them a cat eye effect.

I also rebought my all time favourite concealer, Collection Lasting Perfection in 1 Fair. If you have not heard of this concealer then I have no idea what to say. As it is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING for it's price (which I think is £4.59, but do not count me on that).

Except for some gifts that I bought for friends, that is my complete haul. For me it was quite large compared to the amount I usually buy. But I think that is all.
