Vanilla Underground & Nostalgic Feelz

Vanilla UnderGround

I am a 26 year old Emo. 

I think for most people Emo is a life choice and not a phase that you’re mum would hope you’d of grow out of when you’d kept coming home with a newly accrued hole somewhere in your face. Sadly for my mother I never grew out of my phase, and every time I face time her she mentions my septum she loves to hate with a ‘’ah I see you’ve still got that thing in your face’’ ITS BEEN FIVE YEARS MUM LEAVE IT BE. Emo is the only thing I know. I will never not want to jump round to pop punk music and eat pizza whilst loving all things alt when it comes to fashion and hair. 

On that note, Vanilla Underground  got me right in the nostalgia feelz.
I browsed there site and it was was basically like looking into my wardrobe past, whilst browsing and choosing some pieces for my blog I had fun looking at all the stuff my old 15 year old self would drool over. I thought it would be fun to pick out pieces of that said mindset style them up and bring them into now. That itself was kind of a task and a half with all the nerdy goodness, TV shows/ Movies and band merch to choose from. 

I'll rewind it to pre-Emo and back to my rocking the single digit in age days. I freaking used to love My Little Pony, so much so I once convinced my dad on a trip to Majorca when I was about 4 to buy me a new one each day of the trip. I brought back about 12 of them, it was great trip. I had hundreds of the things, more brightly coloured then the last. Starting to get into my teens I still couldn't shake the MLP thing and with the added satanic twist this jumper would of been right up my street. Its thin enough for me to be able to wear it into the warmer Spring months and into the beginning of summer on to a winner there. 

The second thing I choose was the adorably sweet Kitty Purry Tee . Katy Perry is my guilty pleasure of mine in pop music. Added the kitty cat reference see this post again perfect for me. The whole outfit with the shorts and creepers definitely echoes my go to clothes from my teens and now i’ll be bringing it back in my mid twenties.

Love Catz And Urban Exploring

90s Grunge

YO.

So this was an accidental ‘’Outfit shoot’’ kind of like blogger off duty. James and I went to London the back end of this week for my birthday i’ve really stretched out the celebration side of it even though birthdays aren’t really my thing. It ended last night with a house party and Lord i’ve got the hang over to prove it. I’ve spent most of today sleeping it off and resenting GMT for robbing me of an hour. 

As the title suggests I love cats. It also happens to be the name of my all time fave song by The Cure and basically I can’t help walk around parenting to be a cat whilst Robert Smith does his thang. We were strolling around Bricklane on our first day in London when we accidentally found Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium. Obvs wanted a photo in front of it to show my best friend and fellow kitty enthusiast and I kind of like the results of the pictures. The outfit combination albeit isn’t something I would put together for content of my blog but again I kinda like it. Comfort is key sometimes especially when you know you’ll be walking 87540396 miles around London for the next few days.

I’ve wanted some adidas leggings for a really really long time now, three stripes and errything. Not to work out in no no, I use my Primark beasts for that, but to go about my general business. James listened as per and got me a pair for my birthday, thx bebe along with some other really lovely gifts - [did someone say Vivienne Westwood bag i’ve been eyeing up forever?]  I have noticed my style is edging more and more to Ghetto/chic/trying not to be a Chav/my old tomboy self. Note the Skull and Bones hoodie I got in the Ark sale. I loved it so much it reminded me of when I was younger and Avril Lavigne was my hero and skate clothing was basically my life, all the nostalgia. I kind of like the ‘’alternative’’ meets urban edge at the moment and this just felt like a happy mess. I can’t seem to go anywhere now a days without my Only You denim jacket from Harajuku and a red bandanna in my hair.

CARBZ

h&m Carbs t-shirt

Exhaustion has taken over so please excuse me if I make less sense then usual, i’ve had a pretty full on week off work. I could of waited until the morning to post but i’ve been itching to create something whilst I’ve been away and felt bad I haven’t posted all week. I’m also recovering from post fan girl after meeting my all time tattooing hero and spiritual lovely Grace Neutral and getting my very own hand poked Ghibli from her. She has just the most beautiful soul, I would of been more than content just being in her presence all day. I’m snuggled back in my own bed, back in Yorkshire where I belong after 3 days dannn southhhh’. London, I love ya but I can’t BE in you 24/7, as lovely as the ghetto chic hotel that we stayed in was [the grimmest] i’m glad to be back and united with my kitty cat waiting for a pizza be be delivered, BBQ base of course.

Not one to normally jump on a band wagon I couldn’t help but pick up this carbs shirt from h&m. Note CARBS not CRABS, i’m not advertising an unfortunate STD nor that i’m a huge lover of crustaceans I may add. This little lovely has popped up on my social media feeds quite a lot over the past month and basically I decided I wanted one for my very own, so when I had a little splurge on h&m’s site I swiftly added it to my virtual basket.

I was mostly drawn to the red rings on the sleeve and the ever so subtle lower neck line then your average tee. I did feel like It was mist definitely catering to my 90s side I love love love.  *Obligatory must grumble about h&m sizes when posting about h&m* No seriously this is getting stupid now, Like I get smalls in my tops because no boobz and they fit me just fine no problem. I got this in a small and its just that bit too small, yet I picked up an adorable cactus tee in the same haul in a XS ANS ITS TOO BIG. What gives h&m? Please listen to the masses and please please for the love of the fashion Gods please sort your sizing out. Ridic sizing issues aside I do love the punchy font that holds reminder to why I can’t rid of these muffin tops still. No bother, i’ve got some protein world on the way and i’ve restarted my #BBG again so i’ll be ripped in no time. LOL. 

 *Mental note* Chuck the creepers Jess, they’re looking a bit worse for wear especially after stomping around London for 3 days in them, you’ve got the blister to prove it.

LYDC Punxxxx Stylin’

Anna Smith Tartan Co Ord

I’m sorry, you may as well curl up with a cuppa, i’ve got a lot to cover in this. I haven’t done my usual rambling in a long time and I feel like I’m gonna prattle on before we get down to the clothes. 

Firstly I finally sorted out my hair and made it all raspberry. Last week my hair had turned an odd green colour on the ends probably old dye coming though form some sort of hair fiasco that seems a good idea at the time and I decided to get my DIY on and attempt some sort of ombre. Voila ends no more green. Who needs to spend x amount at your hair dressers when you can do some experimentation with coloured dyes and get your work pal to drunkenly trim your micro fringe. Ahem. . . .

Secondly, I can’t quite believe its my last day as a 25 year old. I find birthdays are weird. My family lives all over, my mum being in New Zealand and well my birthday just feels odd. [Get your violins out] That and i’m terrified I’m edging ever so slightly closer to 30 when I still feel like a 16 year old. However I am spending this year with James and his family in Cheshire which is lovely. I on the frequent do get mistaken as a 19 year old 20 at a much so theres that I guess. 

Lastly, I FREAKING GOT A NEW JOB. And a good one, and in a role I want to do. Still with the same company but i’m now a marketing assistant and I start the first day I get back from my time off work. i’m so excited and can’t quite believe i’ll finally be one of those people in a ob they want to do ^_^

So the clothes yeah. . . .

Last Weekend Chloe from LYDC shared the exciting news that they would be adding clothing from Lispy to their site and sent out a few pieces for a little sneak preview thang. I literally feel Chloe stepped into my brain, knew what I would love and picked out the most perfect outfit for me. Tartan and Mesh are my aesthetic as I like to *TRY* and channel a little punk into my outfits where ever possible. This Co-Ord however is from the Anna Smith range which is unfortunately not on the site but definitely pandas to my more ‘alternative’ side. I love the mesh detailing which ties into the co ord perfectly and literally fits like a dream, hiding the bits i’m not so much of a fan of [i’m looking at you muffin top] whilst still being able to show off a little bit of flesh around the middle.

Personal Style: I Left My Heart In Tokyo




Ok, I may not be coping with the savage break up from Tokyo very well. Its been 4 months since I left my meant to be home so i’ve decided seeing as I can’t BE in Tokyo, i’m going to WEAR Tokyo. Same thing right? Well thats what I told myself as I browsed the Forever 21’s website and added these 2 items swiftly to my bag.

The top with all its mesh goodness with the sports band trim that I just love at the moment, I’ve wanted for a very long time and just never got round to buying. I decided to do so one drizzly weekend day to cheer myself up -yup i’m that guy. I couldnt leave behind the Tokyo text leggings as that would just be mean. So back the shirt. I’ve done the whole sheer thing in shirts but this is mega like you can see errythang see through that I have to make sure i’ve got a super cute bralett on. Its cool though as I have a vast collection to choose from. 

In a bid to not ruin the theme of stuff i’ve meant to get round to buying and finally did. I discovered a few weeks ago I had some dollar I didn’t know about in my PayPal and decided to grab this bag from Lamoda that I have been eyeing up for quite sometime with it. Its similar to the ones UNIF have been putting out and well basically £14.99 is a much more affordable price to £100+ I went against everything Jess and got it in white which is usually a huge mistake cos I like to spill stuff, especially if the thing i’m spilling on is white. Lets see how long it keeps its crips whiteness. P.s look the cute hardware motif. I much prefer my new white bag to these eye bags I can’t seem to shift. ALL THE SLEEP PLZZ.


















How would you of styled these pieces, anything you’ve been meaning to buy?
