Grey Marl Dress

This outfit wasn't anything really special, just a midi dress with matching heels, personally I hate midi dress, not on other people just on myself because I don't like how they particularly look on me, but I think I actually really liked the outcome of this outfit. I think if you looking for a effortless date outfit a simple body fitting dress (not too flashy) with plain colour matching heels would do the trick, because no one wants to look like they tried too hard, but you still look good.

God Bless

I thought I would do a quick post on my new faves, I mean who said you cant wear shades in the winter like the sky is blinding white over here in the UK. But anyways forget those hyped up Dior shades because these mui mui shade are everything right now. The edge and unusual shape is amazing, its one of those things that you need to be confidence in your style to rock and your face, like I couldn't wear these if my eyebrows weren't done lol. In addition are these buff Tom Ford cat eye shades, I just love the colour and gold rim around the glass and in the middle it really gives it this 90's high fashion feel. I cant wait to style these, so keep updated!

God Bless

My Experience at HM Balmain Oxford Street East

So from my last post you probably gathered that I went to the HM Balmain collaboration on the 5th of November. Actually correction *4th of November, Yes, I was one of the few people that travelled to Oxford Street the day before and waited over night for the release. I arrived at 9pm in the night thinking that my two friends and I would be the only ones there, the only ones crazy enough to wait 12 hours to go shopping, but I was so wrong. When we first got to Oxford street we went to the main H&M opposite the underground station and we were shocked to see the line had already began trailing around the block, we immediately got in line and I counted that we were the 71st to 73rd people in the line, which was disappointing and not good enough. So I persuaded my friend to follow me to Oxford street east to check how the queue was down there. I will be honest it is sooooo much better to go Oxford street east, I mean the blogs weren't lying when they said it was way less busy, I talking us moving from number 70 to being in the top 20! It was amazing and really a testimony. However on the down side they do not stock the full collection so its important to check if they have the items you want, which we did and so we decided to stay there.

It was such a long night! At first it wasn't to bad time was going past and it wasn't that cold (but I was wearing leggings, jeans, a tshirt, three jumpers, a coat and a cape with my uggs, two pairs of socks and a beanie) so I was pretty warm lol. It wasn't till 3am that it started getting bitterly cold and it rained and we didn't even have an umbrella. There were a couple of fights and complications because people were trying to jump the queue and frankly I didn't get any sleep, so I was pretty much screwed cause I had a full day of lesson the same day. But skipping straight to the finally hour, due people jumping the queue I went from 18th place to 24th which meant I was in the second group to get into the store because they had a group system (20 people at a time). But again by Gods grace I made it into the first group, because I was able to make friends with the people in the queue and they let me go forward which was amazing. So initially I was happy till I realised I would be the last of the first lot to get into the store which really is worse because everyone would have gotten the stuff before me and they stated that they don't restock. Im talking FOUR COATS one in each size, so any of those 19 people could gotten everything.

But its ALL A LIE, the stocks where amazing the moment they run out of a item they ran to the stock room and brought the exact item you wished for, I was able to get everything I want plus a couple of stuff for my friends and truly it was worth it. Just the feeling of achievement and satisfaction was enough for me. Would I do it again? NO, unless I loved the designer as much as Balmain.
So everything worked out well, except from the fact that I grabbed my self size 4 heels even though I'm a size 6....What can I say I was under pressure I had 10 minutes to shop an amazing collection.

But we Thank God!

H&M Balmain - Eight Must Haves!

So basically most of you know that the H&M Balmain collaboration is only a matter of days away and I'm super excited! So I have decided to narrow down my top must have from the collection.

1. The pearl embellished blazer
If you don't know the collection I am sure you've seen that magnificent blazer around on social media. Its a classic open chest retro shoulder style blazer. It is monochrome which means it can be worn with one million an one things which is amazing and even Olivier said that it was his favourite piece from the entire collection.

2. The black and gold sandals
Oh my God dont get my started with these, just simply looking at them should justify the purchase I mean they bring the fierce to sandal heels (not trying to be cheesy) but for real they have robe detailing which is classic Balmain and gold ring embellishment that bring that luxury feeling. 

3. Black and Gold embellished dress.

This is so classic balmain, the embossed detail, gold hemming and quilted diamond pattern will scream Balmain where ever you go!
I personally think this is my favourite dress of the collection because I like dark things like you can never go wrong with black.

However I do think it would incomplete with out one of the signature belts to really give that small waist hour glass illusion. Which bring me onto the next must have.
4. Gold and Silver metal belt.
Most people say gold and silver don't go together but Olivier just knocked that rule, I mean it goes to say in the right design they really compliment each other.

I think the best things about these belts is the wearable flexibilty, like you can wear with blazers, dresses of any colour or pattern to stand out. You could even go for a minimal palette and wear a basic dress and use this belt as a statement piece.

5. Waistcoat with satin lapels
I love the simplicity of this blazer, you could dress up with a dress, skirt or matching sorts with a pair of heeled sandals of boats. Or you could dress it down with casual trousers with a shirt, the diversity is real!
6. Green Sequin Dress
I think this is probably the most affordable dress in the collection, and I would defiantly say its a good buy. The fit and neck cut is to die for and the sequin detail is just beautiful, from the images I would assume that the pattern is generated by different shades of green and different directions of the sequin placement. Personally it wouldn't suit my body type but I would say if you have a smaller bust you should go for it!

7. Thigh high black boot
Okay so these boots I think would suit anyone, tall or short. They are slick, black and sexy and would give any outfit character. They also have the Louboutin classic red sole, which you probably can see in this picture. In terms of the shoes I would say they are so worth it, however if your looking for something that screams Balmain then you better of buying the sandal heels.

8. Green Fur Coat
 This coat is defiantly one of my favourite pieces from the entire collection. The colour of the fur is just amazing, when I say I have been looking for the perfect coloured fur coat since last winter I am not joking, and something told me to wait to this season and God just blessed me with this beauty. It dark so it can be diversely worn and it comes with a detachable belt which again make the style varies according to the outfit.

Well I'm done, those are my top favourite pieces from the collection. I am so ready for this release and if you know me I will camp outside to make sure I am the first in that shop. I mean people are homeless everyday, so what one night? But on a serious not be sure to catch me at the release on Oxford Street on the 5th of November (at the front of the queue). 

God Bless and happy shopping :)
