This doesn't come easy, but I have sinned. At least, in the sartorial sense.
For some time now, I've had Uggs playing on my mind - yes, you read right, Uggs.
The biggest faux pas of all faux pars in the fashion world. The Crocs of the boot world.
I try to suppress the thoughts, but they seem to come harder.

It all started when I imagined that I'd seen a pair of Uggs embellished with what looked like pieces of costume jewellery, or gems. Does anyone else ever do that? Imagine outfits or items in your mind that you swear you've seen on your favourite blogger, or inside a window of a high street retailer, only to realise you've unconsciously designed it yourself? I do that often. Well, sort of.
Turns out that what I'd actually seen, was a pair of embellished Crocs. I'd clapped eyes on Christopher Kane's SS17 Croc collab, developed a distorted memory of what I'd actually seen, added two and two together and made nine. Unconsciously.

I guess my only explanation for that is that Crocs and Uggs have been tarnished with the same brush. Slapped with the ugly stick. The taboo shoe. A footwear felony. Any nostalgia of my teenage Ugg wearing days, and the warmth they brought will be instantly slam dunked back where it belongs. Deep into my subconscious.

Now this article is edited. The irony is that after writing it, and saving it into my bottomless pit of drafts, I later discovered that these gem encrusted boots do exist. They actually do, in the form of a collaboration with Jeremy Scott and Ugg. Am I insane? Did I confabulate these outrageously ugly-but-also-kind of amazing boots? Or did I absentmindedly scroll through my Instagram feed pre-morning Coffee, and forget I'd ever saw them? I'm not sure. Memory is a funny thing. That aside, let's get back to my internalised guilt and shame about slowly liking Uggs again.

I'm trying to fight it. And I will not cave. But let's just say if Vogue posts an article tomorrow along the lines of "Bella Hadid, makes the case for the worst boots on earth", I may accidentally buy some. You know, for the sake of Fashion.

It's funny. In my opinion, most trainers that are like the "it" item to own, and pretty damn ugly.
But it's all subjective isn't it. All it takes is promotion from the right "influencer", and suddenly it's the right type of ugly. Whatever that means.

Stranger Things

First off, can I just add - please ignore the absolute state of this blog. The layout has gone weird, and everything's just accumulated a tonne of cobwebs over the past year. I'm gradually starting to fix it.

I know I'm late to the party, but that's the whole point. Topshop (Oxford Circus) really turned the place "Upside Down", to promote the release of Stranger Things 2, along with a small line of merch', which was actually very wearable - and a bit too wearable it seems, as the whole thing bloody sold out fast. Trying to find myself that grey jumper (you definitely know which one I mean) was like trying to bloody find Will Byers. 

Praise the eBay Gods. I knew it'd find something similar in seconds. Instead of forking out £32 for a jumper that I'll probably be wearing to bed soon, I paid £11.99! As much as I love Stranger Things, and I'm probably going to milk this jumper dry, it's fast fashion. A micro trend. I'll be sick of it in a few months. 

I take a size UK10-12 so the seller suggested I opt for a medium, and it fits perfectly..but in a slightly "boyfriend"/oversized way. Jumper here. Bag is from Mango (sold out) but similar here


I've never been a fan of Mean Girls to be fair, but let's be pretentious and say that yeah, on Wednesdays we do wear pink (even though it's Thursday.) It's not often that you can successfully mix feeling "glamorous" yet comfortable at the same. Two words, I never thought I'd see in the same sentence and yet here we are, a see-through metallic blouse, and what literally feels like PJ pants. I wore this outfit way back on my birthday, which was perfect for lounging around a restaurant booth stuffing my face with Mediterranean food for three hours. Unfortunately, this blouse is now unavailable in pink (it was a sale find), but they do still stock mint and silver alternatives.


This post was originally my 'Top 5', but I just couldn't narrow it down, and I'm sure you can see why. I'm a sucker for boots in all shapes and sizes, and no Autumn is complete without a new pair..or five. All boots are linked. 


When your knees look like a head from a 3D baby scan..uncanny.
So yeah this post has nothing to do with The Clash, as in the actual band, sorry. But if like most of the world you've been watching Stranger Things, you may currently have 'Should I Stay Or Should I Go' playing on loop inside your head. What I'm really referring to is the fact that I decided to pair a pink leopard print PJ blouse with a mustard pleather skirt - a combo that I never thought I'd wear, or see and yet here we are. Surprisingly, I think they go together like a house on fire. I guess that could also be taken the wrong way as a house on fire is never a good thing. Anyway, like it or lump it, I think this awful clash actually looks pretty great, and it's an outfit I'll certainly be repeating in the foreseeable future.
You have have noticed the gold boots..These are still available here at Topshop. Unfortunately they seem to be the most un-photogenic pair of shoes I've ever owned, but IRL they look amazing, and they're super comfy. 

Are you guilty of any questionable outfit clashes? 


This week, the beginning of Autumn technically commenced - although not really in my books, it's still hot, I'm still wearing sandals, and I'm yet to put my sausage toes away anytime soon. Regardless, the cold British weather will soon be in the post, so I think it's time we take a look at what Primark has got to offer this Autumn/Winter, and let me tell you..they are yet to disappoint. Expect embroidery galore, puffer jackets, and an influx of fabulous textures and sequins.

If you've been into Primark recently you may have also noticed the launch of their new Ps Pro collection emulating cheaper alternatives of the Beauty Blenders and Artis makeup brushes. You can now find products to suit your every need including contour kits, eyeshadow palettes..the whole shebang. It was a little hard to photograph the makeup at the press day, as it was pretty packed, and I felt like an annoying tourist, but have a look next time you pop into your local branch. To this day I still swear by their Velvet Matte Lip Crayon in the shade 'Natural'. It's an exact dupe for MACs ever popular 'Honey Love', and since discovering this pencil, I needn't bother replacing it. 
What are your favourite pieces? As per usual, I'm not so patiently waiting on the faux furs. 

Lovely to see Dauby again of Dymps and Dimes.  She also shot this outfit for me which you can find here
