From The Archive: 2013

With magazine placements on the side, 2013 was the last year I juggled blogging as a side gig. Things get a bit girlier in the style department too, with a lorra love for the sixties and a 'hive!


Project Take 10: Warehouse Denim & ASOS Fashion Finder


(Hat: Topshop, Jacket: C/O Miss Selfridge, Top: Zara, Jeans: C/O Warehouse, Boots: Old (but similar below on ASOS)

If there’s one thing my wardrobe oozes more than anything (apart from a slightly excessive range of collared dresses) it’s denim. I have a pair of jeans for pretty much every day of the week (skinny, flared, paisley- you name it), denim shirts, button up skirts, jackets- and now a blossoming collection of pinafore dresses and dungarees. It’s the perfect base to build every good outfit upon- and if I’m ever in doubt- it’s jean time.

So, this month, the Take 10 ladies and I teamed up with the lovely ladies at ASOS Fashion Finder, and the equally cool Warehouse people in order to promote their exciting new denim range. Yes, yes indeed- this was the perfect opportunity to push my denim comfort boundaries. Having recently branched into the land of flares; who’d have thunk acid wash and ripped denim could be next on my agenda. Don’t get me wrong- until I tried these Warehouse bad boys- ripped jeans scared me. I can’t rock the ‘ripped-jeans-baseball-tee-and-Zara-heels-off-duty-look’ and I certainly don’t have the level of ‘tude (yes, I said ‘tude) ripped jean ambassadors Taylor Momsen and Salt/and or Pepa ooze. However, teamed with my safe choice of embroidered jacket and matching blouse, cowboy Fedora and simple gold jewellery- I think I may even take them out for another spin in the near future.

Additionally the other ladies did an incredible job, and each styled a different item in their own way- to check out their looks click here, and do check out their blogs below- you won’t be disappointed.
