France Photo Diary


Just before i went away i got a new camera from my mum for my birthday (which isn't actually till october so it's an early one).  It's just a small, digital camera by Samsung but i'm impressed with all the functions it has and got carried away using the built in fish eye lens.  I'm missing the pool already.

Wish Want Wear*




1 - Hat - Zara
2 - Dress - Wish Want Wear*
3 - Jewellery - Vintage, H&M, Forever 21

How amazing is this dress?!  I will let you in on a little secret, it's by Temperley and costs far more than i could ever afford.  So how did i get my hands on it?  Enter Wish Want Wear - a website that allows you to rent your fave designer dresses at a fraction of the price.   The guys at WWW actually sent me this dress free of charge to trial out their innovative shopping concept.  Now i'm really not a social butterfly who goes to events all the time or goes out clubbing so i wasn't sure if there would be much i would be drawn to on the website.  But there is actually a great selection of all types of dresses, from casual to ball gowns.  Plus, there's loads of designer brands to choose from.  As well as dresses they also hire out bags and accessories which is a great add on for a full blown designer outfit.  You can also choose how long you would like to hire your items for and book upto three months in advance.  And when you've finished with your event you simply drop your dress off at the post office for free.  Getting the runway look was never so easy.

096




1 - Waistcoat - Vintage @ ETTE
2 - Dress - Topshop
3 - Bag - Vintage @ ETTE
4 - Sunglasses - Topshop
5 - Sandals - Topshop

Another one of my holiday outfits.  I bought this dress just before we went away as i just don't own any dresses (apart from black dresses that i wear to formal things).  It was £18 from Topshop and i am so in love with it.  It's just a simple tiered short dress made from jersey so it is so easy to throw on you can style it so many ways so i think it is an absolute bargain.  You may notice that i'm wearing the same shoes, bag and sunglasses in these posts but you can thank luggage limits for that.  Although i really don't have a problem with wearing items again and again in blog posts because that is how i live.  And to show anything otherwise would be a lie.  I recently read Lydia's blog post about outfit repeating and she pretty much sums it up.

1 - Hat - Zara
2 - Top - Forever 21
3 - Shirt - Flea market
4 - Sandals - Topshop
5 - Bag - Vintage @ ETTE
6 - Sunglasses - Topshop

I've just returned from ten days in France sourcing new vintage goodies for ETTE.  It has been an exhausting time and i'm so tired now but it was worth it.  Man, did me and Lucie get some good shit for you guys!  So i'm currently lying in bed and re-watching The Wolf of Wall Street as i have been reading the book whilst away and just needed to see the film again.  Plus, i never really need an excuse to watch Leo.  But i must say that the book is really good and definitely worth a read.

1 - Sunglasses - Forever 21
2 - Top - Lucie's hand me down
3 - Shorts - One Teaspoon
4 - Sandals - Topshop
5 - Jewellery - Vintage, H&M, Primark

Sun, sun, sunnnnnnn!  It has been so amazing the past couple of days and i'm loving it.  Mainly because it means i get to live in shorts and these sandals.  My boyfriend calls this my 'Daisy Duke' outfit but i was going for more of a rock and roll, hillbilly cowgirl vibe.  I honestly wish i lived in the deep south of America.  My hair has been really pissing me off recently as i just never do anything with it, but i really want to do things with it.  I just feel i don't suit anything well because of my huge round head.  So today i tried something new.  Wait for it.........half up/half down!  Really not adventurous but baby steps, i guess.  Does anyone else suffer with this round head/shit hair situation?!

093 + OOTD Video




1 - Playsuit - Missguided
2 - Bag - Nasty Gal
3 - Boots - Vintage from flea market
4 - Sunglasses - Borrowed from Lucie
5 - Jewellery - H&M, Vintage

Lucie and i decided to take today 'off' work - although this job doesn't have an off switch - as we read it was going to be the hottest day of the year so far.  We went up to Heaton Park which is round the corner from where we live and took some photos alongside some videoing.  This playsuit was bought in the Missguided sale for £11.99!  I honestly don't know how it ended up in the sale but i guess some people don't see how amazing it is.  Lucie actually showed me the playsuit and straight away i said lets buy them.  So now we both have something else matching in our wardrobes.  We really should just share clothes.  Anyway, i also made a quick OOTD video so give it a watch and let me know what you think.  And please go and subscribe to my channel as it would make my day!
