As you guys may or may not know I’m Fashion & Beauty for Uni2Know mag, a student magazine based in Nottingham. Recently we had a photo shoot to do for the newest issue and I was in desperate need of some models! It’s difficult to find male models around uni because people aren’t normally keen to offer themselves up for it! My solution came from having Sunday lunch with my Uncle & Auntie, Alex & Alan who happen to be the directors of Fresh Logistics, a ‘temperature controlled courier and storage company’ which is based just down the road from us in Long Eaton. Fresh logistics work mainly for the food and pharmaceutical sectors and provide specialist bespoke services to the frozen, chilled or ambient market. They’ve also just won an award last week for Operations SME at the SHD awards which is wicked! They did me a huge favour by asking a few of their lads that work for them to help us out! Here are a few of the shots from the day, shot by Neil Kates of Keeping It Neil Photography.
Seriously, what would we do without ASOS in our lives now? They truly are life saving aren’t they? I’ve really been loving the 60s look at the moment and I’ve been after the perfect pair of loafers. I’ve been on a mission but it’s been a bit of a porridge/Goldilocks hunt for them. All the one’s I’ve been looking at in the shops have either looked too cheap, been too shiny or just haven’t fitted. There’s also the nightmare of to tassel or not to tassel! But I finally found a lovely little pair I like from ASOS. What do you think?
Just thought I’d share a little outfit I wore recently. This is a skirt I’ve had for probably about 5 years now, I dug it out the other week when I went home for Christmas and it’s a little big (cough 2 sizes) but I can tighten it up and you wouldn’t know! It’s an old Topshop number and obviously, being check/tartan it’s bang on trend now but the good thing with it being old is that I probably won’t see anyone else wearing it! What do you think?
These remind me of the classic slip-on Vans that I used to have when I was younger, the comfiest shoes ever! I’ve been seeing them a lot all over Pinterest, I know there’s some amazing Celine ones floating about in the fash world but clearly my student budget won’t stretch to those beauties. I was contemplating getting some all black Vans in this style but then my friend gave me a heads up about these lovely little ones from Topshop. As soon as I heard about them I snapped them up. I love the casual look they give
to an outfit, I can’t wait to wear them with my leather leggings and a cosy jumper! They’re furry too! Only £18 with student discount. What do you think?
Whistles is one of my favourite brands, they just seem to get it right for me every time, their clean lines and punchy prints are just gorgeous and their pieces are always cut beautifully.
But, confession, I haven’t actually bought anything from Whistles. Until now. They’re slightly out of my student price range unfortunately but a girl can dream right? Alas, the dream came true on Sunday afternoon when I spied the infamous red letters on the window of the store. S A L E. Utt-ooohhh! There goes all my un-disposable income.
Guest Post Monday again! This is a lovely little press release for Pretty Polly about their new collaboration with Virgin Atlantic, I think it’s great that they’re creating tights to support hard working legs. I didn’t realise that being on your feet all day could cause such problems. I also love these visuals, Virgin Atlantic are so glam!
So, here’s the unveiling of my amazing boots from Urban Outfitters! There was so many amazing pieces that I could have chosen but I wanted to get an investment piece that will last me ages! These Deena & Ozzy boots are gorgeous, leather and just plain amazing to go with so many things.
So the day so many Nottingham city dwellers have been waiting for happened on Thursday. Urban Outfitters in the Victoria Centre opened! Yaaaaay. And it is huge! Absolutely massive with a ghost staircase leading downstairs to even more indie and edgy goodness. I was invited along to the Press & Blogger opening in the morning, massively grateful as I didn’t really fancy fighting my way through the crowds in the evening. Here are a few sneaky snaps of the day.
Basially, I love Fran from Made in Chelsea’s style, I think she always looks wicked. So I’ve picked a few bits that I think she’d wear, she loves a floral bold print and a fedora. Pair with a leather jacket or statement blazer and you’ve got her effortless but oh so stylish look. Tres chic.
