AW16 Trend Series – Grunge Spirit

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

This is the second part of my AW16 trend series and this time I’m talking you through ‘Grunge Spirit’. I had so much fun styling this look; I think it’s partly due to me reverting back to my emo days 😉

This trend incorporates everything 90’s, chokers, tartan, leopard print, brooches and layering. I wanted to give a girly edge to my look but you could also style it with ripped jeans, a rock band tee and leather jacket. I have linked some other alternatives below. My inspiration off the catwalk for this trend was from Burberry, Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham and Prada.

Hi Everyone!

So my blog hit one year old on 23rd September and I can’t believe it, it’s gone so quickly!

When I started my blog, I wanted to inspire both disabled and able bodied people to be who they want to be and to style themselves in anyway they want. I had never let my disability get in the way of my love of fashion and beauty and I wanted to show other disabled people that their disability didn’t need to stop them from standing out in their own unique way.

Honestly a year down the line, when I look back, I thought I’d have more than a thousand instagram followers and hundreds of views on my blog each day; but it doesn’t work like that.. I’ve learnt that I will get nowhere without hard work and determination and that if I continue to do this, then it will pay off eventually!

I enjoy what I do so much, I love writing my blog even though some days after work I just want to chill and do nothing! But my passion is fashion and beauty and I’m so pleased that I have this platform to share it with everyone!

Hi Everyone!

I have been lusting after some leopard print boots for such a long time and as you all probably know by now as I mention it so often, I have super fat feet which makes finding shoes and boots near impossible!! I ordered these on the off chance that they’d fit with not very high hopes, but to my amazement I had a cinderella moment and they went on perfectly!

I couldn’t wait to style them and I loved the contrast of the bright red in this dress with the leopard print and to complete the outfit I added this black floppy hat with a necktie to give the whole look a boho feel.
