As easy as A,B,C

With A-Level results being out last week, my social media pages have been over flowing with people who are going to uni or congratulating friends and siblings who have. I have also been asked countless times how uni is, what the course is like and what to take when the big move happens.

My uni life didn't get off to the best of starts, I knew I wanted to do fashion but had no real idea that there were (what seemed liked) millions of different types of fashion course. After deferring a year due purely being too scared to go, I decided to study International Fashion Marketing at Manchester Met. Boy oh boy was that a mistake to make. Obviously this is my own personal opinion and experience and does eventually have a happy ending..but the day came to move to halls (I had never actually been inside the halls and didn't actually listen at the open day) I just had an idea that I was going to be Manchesters Carrie Bradshaw *rolls eyes* So my parents moved all my stuff and left me happ…

Urban Outfitters must haves!

Now normally as much as I love Urban Outfitters I never really buy anything from there. Probably because I don't actually live near one and feel that I am far from cool enough to wear anything from there. BUT this season I could have cried with happiness when I walked into UO in Belfast. With an obsession for pinafores and anything with cute collars I was in heaven! UO have really stepped up their game this season stocking the shelves with combinations of 60's inspired dresses and pinafores and peter pan collared tops. Alongside being able to purchase biker leather jackets to team with the girly dresses it is the perfect combination. On top of all of that the fact that the dresses are all swing or shift they are the most flattering fit! Perfect. Teamed with chelsea boots or brogues and a killer satchel this season is set to be a cute one with Urban Outfitters! xoxo

Denim obsession

Image
Denim has taken over the fashion world at the moment. With the huge trend of dungarees that have hit the high street this summer it's hard not to be the owner of at least one denim piece. BUT if you were to take a step into my over flowing wardrobe you will see a flurry of denim dresses. Pinafores, shift dresses, swing dresses, with collars and without, printed and plain. I am well and truly OBSESSED with them.

It's one of those things where you find "The dress" the one that you wish you could wear everyday if it wasn't gross and against all girls style rules. So when I went into Topshop in Cardiff at the weekend I tried to drive myself away from the new seasons denim...I got an outfit (which did actually include a denim skirt) but of course 12 hours later it was back in the shop and was swapped with a collared denim dress. This one was polka dot...one of the only styles I don't have.

So I thought I would take a look at some of the most stylish celebs rocking…
