I love a good fashion hybrid – black florals are my fave!

fashion hybrid

I’ve always loved the use of juxtaposition in fashion; well it extends a little further than fashion, hence the name of the blog.  However, the fashion hybrid mix of high/low (runway/high street), smart/casual (blazer, tee, jeans, heels), or hard/soft (leather/chiffon); in this case it’s bodycon and oversized, and a little bit of day/night action with the neckpiece.

Over the past few years, it’s something that’s become more mainstream as more and more celebs have got into the whole sports wear/street chic style and the masses follow suit.



Rose gold is my favourite metal, and is fast becoming my favourite neutral!

Three-colour Russian wedding bands (I used to work in a jewellers when I was younger) made me think I hated rose gold; yet I’ve always loved shiny new pennies. I think I just hated the rings. Anyhoo, rose gold is my absolute fave! Even when I would wear gold costume jewellery and it would turn copper before it went black? Love!!! LOL

Rosy neutrals are fast becoming a wardrobe fave too. Wait let’s not jump the gun, I mean nothing will ever take over my obsession with all things BLACK; but grey might have to budge over for a minute!



Pre-fall is my favourite season, all the layer-able and interchangeable collections.  It’s not just the clothes I love though, I also love pre-fall perfumes!


Let me tell you about some great pre-fall perfumes as we’re fast approaching that mild time of the year, where it’s neither hot nor cold.  A time where a lighter, summer fragrance is not so effective, yet a deeper fragrance would be a little too heavy for this time of year.



As you will probably have picked up from my last three fashion haul videos, I’m kinda obsessed with H&M Trend!

Perusing the site just now I came across some really cute pieces that I not only want in my closet, but I also want to share with you.

See all my picks and info after the jump!



Another fashion haul + try on video! I’m getting the hang of these now, this one is all about the neutrals.

I enjoy filming and editing these fashion haul videos so much, in case you couldn’t tell. My neutrals include denim, khaki, navy, beige, grey, and blush pink. Truth be told all three of my haul videos so far are neutrals, but there was just too many things to fit in one fashion haul + try on video! This video features purchases from H&M, ASOS, Zara, and The Outnet.
