instagram no.1

Wearing a pretty little peplum. Getting ready for a night out. I found a gold olympic post box! My baby lulu. My best friends and I. Cheeky visit to Victoria's Secret. My new tartan scarf. Being healthy with my favourite meal. I met Oliver Proudlock!

Thought I'd join in with the Instagram hype and do one each week. Hope you enjoy :)

Mad for Tartan

If you’re an internet shopping addict (like me) then read on and feel my pain.

I’m loving the tartan trend at the moment and therefore should have known it was a dangerous idea when I typed in the vague description ‘tartan’ into the ASOS search box. However, I refrained, to an extent, and kept my eye on a beautiful ‘Glamorous’ skater dress. £28 wasn’t going to do too much harm so away I went and added it to my bag. In the time it took me to admire and proceed to checkout it SOLD OUT. 

Let’s just all take a minute to empathize….

When I see something I like I can be pretty persistent – every time I had a chance I frantically refreshed the page. The hard work paid off because FINALLY my size was available. And five days later it arrived. 

Dress - Asos
Jacket - River Island
Boots - Topshop
Bracelets - Pandora, Links of London, Mulberry
Rings - Accessorize
Necklace was a gift

I fell in love with the tartan skater style dress since Rihanna wore an Alexander McQueen beauty on The X Factor last year. 

I love the double layering on the skirt – makes it a little more flirty.

Paired with a River Island leather jacket and some badboy stud boots.

I really love this outfit – such a perfect casual-chic outfit for day and all it would need is some chunky gold jewellery and heels to glam it up. 

I'd love to hear what you guys think :)

Chunky Chain

Large, loud and gold. If I were to sum up my preferred choice in jewellery, this would be it. Don't get me wrong, I love all jewellery, but I feel like chunky gold numbers glam up an outfit in seconds.

This is my go-to piece of jewellery at the moment. I bought it from Topshop specifically to go with a black crop tee and a textured skater skirt. There's a hint of 'gangster' which gives it a little more edge. What do you guys think?!

*I've decided I want to do a short blog post each week featuring an item of clothing or an accessory which I am loving. It could be anything from a ring to a scarf or even a statement top.*

The New Girl

The blank page I am currently staring at is just as disconcerting as everyone says; not to mention how grosely intimidating it is. I can’t be too put off however, as this blank page will become increasingly familiar to me as I keep an online journal of what I like to call fashion.

Here is a synopsis of me. My name is Molly. I am a Leo, which makes me the baby of any school year. Gold jewellery is an obsession of mine, along with the stunningly beautiful Audrey Hepburn. I live in the countryside but desperately dream of living in The City. Black is timeless and therefore is my favourite colour. I collect Vogue magazine every month and am beginning to worry the desk where they are displayed will collapse in a couple of months - I should sort that.  I love listening to accents. I also love listening to dubstep (don’t judge me). Laddered tights are the bane of my life. I tend to get carried away at eBay auctions.

Fashion is interesting. It’s a subject that is incredibly prevalent yet no matter how much content there is, it will never be an industry which is saturated. Why? Because there is too much creativity involved! British Vogue has been published since 1916 and I can personally guarantee there has not been one issue that has lacked brilliance (although I can also personally guarantee I have not read them all!)
