Zara Werid Power Top
Ah guys, theres so much stuff I want to address in this post but I literally don't have a clue where
 to start so please excuse the flirting from topic to topic as its gonna be one of those kinda posts where everything's kinda everywhere. . . .

To begin 

Theres something undeniably joyous about snagging an absolute bargain - I guess it makes up for all the times where I've just bought something and it goes in the sale for a fraction of the price, heart dropping, we've all been there. 

I've always been a little bit weird, my ideas, how I am, what I like, what I do, how I present myself, everything is just a little bit weird. As I've mentioned a thousand times before, in the past I've been a little scared to show it. After fully embracing the weird, I am 100% more comfortable in my own skin, I love embracing all things weird and wonderful and I fully encourage everyone else to do the same - to bring out their own bit of weird.

So obviously at the weekend when I saw this shirt I had to buy it cos:

1) It has ''weird power" across the front and is all kinds of wonderful

2) It was a freaking steal in the Zara sale [£3.99] which made me ecstatic as we've all established I like to keep to my Yorkshire roots and I'm a bit of a tight arse. . . . I also managed to pick up some more last minute January sale things from there that I can't wait to show you. 

3) It's got really really long sleeves, like stupidly over long sleeves that I'm kinda digging NGL

4) Its like trio striped shirt of wonder that was defiantly made with me in mind
For now I styled it with my new wardrobe baes - my Missguided mega shredded jeans. I never thought I would ever describe a pair of jeans as one as my current faves, perhaps my jeans phobia is slowly but surely leaving, who knows?

Now the photos, cool right? They were taken by my very talented friend Jess, it was her fabulous idea to have a play with coloured smoke bombs, I particularly like that in some I look like I'm summoning the Dark Lord. Sytherin 4 lyf, that and I felt very much like I was recreating Paramore's Now music video, where Hayley's running though a battle field and there's all this crazy coloured smoke. Hayley obsession will never ever die. If any bloggers in the York/Leeds area are looking for a photographer, get in touch with Jess at Jessicamaeheadley@gmail.com

Question: Will my love for metallics ever die?

Alternative Fashion Blogger

 Answer: In short no.

So story time, a fair few months back, like I'm talking before I had to wear five thousand layers to surface from my house [srsly summer I miss you] I spent the day in York with my blogger pal Bry. We wandered, we shopped, ate at Bills [their halloumi and hummus burger is bomb AF btw] and found ourselves in Topshop. I have a love hate relationship with Topshop, love the clothes, hate the prices. I fell madly in love with this metallic leopard print skirt but was literally outraged at the £34 price tag. lol no thanks. Don't get me wrong , I mean its pretty but Yano just not £34 pretty. Knowing it would be ridic to spend such an obscene amount on one skirt, I reluctantly left it in the shop with a sigh. 

It's just I couldn't get the damn thing outta my head. Christmas rolled round basically meaning all my spare cash was going on gifts and I couldn't possibly be used for £34 skirts I didn't need hashtag not stoked wah wah. 
First world.
 I guess my waiting around paid off as I managed to snag the skirt of my dreams new, from eBay and the best part, for a FIVER. Hitting the order confirmation button, I felt smug AF that I had the skirt I'd been obsessing over in my possession, high five for being a tight arse.

Now the sweater, oh my guys! This has been my go to thing in my wardrobe I find myself reaching for more and more as the lining is arguably the softest thing ever, I have literally worn this thing to death since James very kindly gave it to me for Christmas. Now the outfit combination was a bit of an accident, I was heading off to the hairdressers and needed something comfy to wear as it was gonna be a longggg dayyy, I grabbed the jumper but as my skirt was freshly delivered 30 mins before I left the house, I did that thing where you want to wear all the new things at once cos new and shiny [literally] The skirt and sweater didn't end up being as meh together as I thought it would be, nor it a combination I would have thought to put together intentionally. Sometimes accidental outfits are a good thang.

Why Staying Stylish in the Winter is always a struggle but a challange I'll glady accept.


 
Alternative Fashion Blogger

I don't know about you but I'm so done with the cold and feeling cold and being cold -you get the picture. Like legit I swear I haven't felt warm for about 6 months, I mourn summer every time winter rolls around. In short summer = happy Jess

Last weekend I was particularly done with winter and wanted to pretend Howden hadn't turned into the Artic just for a little while so I rehashed a Spring fave of mine to bring a bit of colour and help the illusion along a bit. This pink pastel jacket is my most thing I brought back from my trip to Tokyo in October 2015. It embodies everything I love in a piece of clothing and has the hilarious ''Is it or is it not a bathroom mat attached to the back'' vibe. Super Kawaii desu.

As mentioned in my last post I have formed a strong love for the tour tee trend [oh alliteration] that seems to be EVERYWHERE and thanks to Christmas I have a nice little stock pile of them in different variants. This one however is in the form of a t-shirt dress. Perfect for when you're having a particular bout of ''CBA'' but wanna look bomb as fuck with minimal effort. [Me basically the entirety of winter. . . . ] Plus I love the gurney vibes when paired with the clompiest boots in my wardrobe [Hey River Island Baes sorry I've been neglecting you] and an oversized jacket. Shame I only lasted this shoot for my blog before I went home to retrieve more layers. Winter 1 Jess 0.

See Through the Storm, Very Apt for me Right Now Albeit a Tad Dramatic

Misguided Graphic t-shirt Shredded Jeans

lol. Guess who's hit their first bloggers block of 2017? Aye, it's me already. I am a restless creative. I am always always on the go and I can never just sit still. Even on lazy days, if I'm not doing anything like writing/filming/shooting my minds turning turning turning, thinking up ideas/content anything, so a rest is kinda out f the questions. Rather than help it would just drive me crazy. So here I am trying to shift this block. What did that guy in like "Starwars or LOTR or some shit say? ''This too shall pass" That could be completely wrong, it could be neither film but anyway I hope it does and soon. 

I am totally totally digging the 80s/90s aesthetic of the ridiculously shredded jeans and fishnet tights combo - so Tumblr it hurts. I have wanted [like I have probably professed for many many other  items in my wardrobe in the past] a pair of ultra shredded jeans for forever and a day and I could never find the ''ones'' Until  I downloaded the Missguided app. [Don't do it, it's dangerous cos there's always a banging sale and you get notifications to your phone about 75% off like wtf] having a browse on my train ride to work I found them, and at £8.70 bar-GAIN, they're were also in my size so it's totally fate right? 

Confession time, I may or may not be wearing head to toe Missguided, I think I have a bit of a problem and I'm totally blaming the app. As well as digging the aforementioned combo, I'm all heart eyes for graphic fake tour tees. The tackier the better. I have gathered quite the collection thanks to Christmas and I'm in love. This one has a rly deep plunge line that I would normally shy away from as #scary but I thought YOLO to it and bought it. Yes, I did just use YOLO in 2017. Teamed with a cute lacy bralette I think this could also be a new fave combo of mine. 

I'm also really happy I took the plunge and decided to go pastel, I'm freaking lovin' being one step closer to a real-life anime character, just need hair that touches the floor and a pair of cat ears, one can dream eh?

Why These Satin Culottes Are my Fave Thing in my Wardrobe, but the Hardest Thing to Style.

Primark Culottes

I literally have no idea what this outfit is and if I'm quite honest, I have no idea what half of these pictures are. All I know is I had a hella fun doing this. 

BASICALLY, when Jim and I were doing the very last bit of our Christmas shopping, I saw these split leg culottes whilst in the cue at Primark. Some sap had done the ''abandoned half of your Primark stash last minute'' whilst waiting to pay silly silly and I was baffled at how someone could leave such a wicked item of clothing. Ah well, they're mine now.

See I have this thing for buying dumb clothes, like if its ridic/tacky/a little bit gross, something inside me tells me I've gots to have it. Burgandy satin split culottes? ok den. 

TBF they are pretty glorious when I have them on and they make me feel like I'm and extra in Aladin, especially paired with this Missguided chain crop thang. Now I wouldn't ordinarily have worn it with another crop underneath it but its cold out and I thought the extra layer might have given me some more warmth [so totally wrong] 

And seeing as I was going for full on ridic outfit ensemble apparently, I thought my Vans that literally look like slippers would finish it off perfectly. cos yano, why the f*ck not. 

I do rly rly love them, and they are literally one of my fave things in my wardrobe, I just wish I had an occasion to wear them cos they don't exactly scream every day?

I'll see what I can do.
