Trendsetter Tuesday: Jade Thirlwall

If you know me (and the chances are if you have been directed here from Facebook or Tumblr you will) you will know how much I LOVE the Little Mix girls. And their style. so the first Mixer girlie I chose, was the adorable 20 year-old Geordie. That narrowed it down to two girls from that band then. Great.

But I’m talking about Miss Jade Thirlwall, renowned for her big hair bows and khaki parka that the girls have threatened to burn.

In the earlier days I can’t say I enjoyed her style all too much, I found it all a little childish and, quite frankly, strange. But I still found the odd outfit that I could see myself wearing. Although, this year has shown Jade completely change her style arround. Now sporting girly dresses, jumpsuits and heeled sandals, Jade has found her mature side and has started to dress for her age.

Here are just a few of my favourite Jade outfits.

I think it’s safe to say that Jade’s new look is truly flawless (and she’s looking smokin’ whilst doing so).

Stay tuned in the next coming weeks for the other three Little Mix girls who are set to make a TT appearance.

Which LM girl’s style is your favourite?

Trendsetter Tuesday: Mollie King

Where do I start with Mollie King? I have adored her style for this past year (and to be honest, I think I love virtually everything I have seen her wear in the past X amount of years). I love her elegance, both as a person and style-wise, she’s so feminine and well put together. She is simply darling.

If you don’t know her from a fashion standpoint then, you can find her singing in the British female pop-group, The Saturdays.

This a small collation of images I put together on Polyvore. As you can see, Mollie likes to wear dresses, shorts and skirt quite a lot, showing over her endless legs and show off her petite figure. But she can literally pull off anything she wears.

Her airport style never fails to amaze me, it is casual enough without losing her beauty and style, and she still looks like a million dollars.

I personally love this and I’m desperate to re-create this!

article-2464107-18CA0BD100000578-257_634x1076The thing I love and apprecite about this outfit is how mature it is, whilst being slightly edgier for the Saturday’s singer. The colours are not a mixture that it usually seen on here but she manages to work it like she does everything else. Simply stunning.

dabf130217312799c668fd72cc606794Mollie-King-at-Jean-Pierre-BraganzaFrom all of the outfits and images I have seen of Mollie, I have to admit that this outfit from this years London Fashion Week A/W is my favourite. I adore the mixture of grey and white with the shoe colour pop. This season I really adore white, grey, black and lime green. It’s simply divine.

If I strive to be like anyone (once I stop looking like a fifteen year old), it would have to be Mollie King.

What are your favourite Mollie outfits?

Check back soon for an Oasis post of Mollie’s collaboration with the brand called ‘Loved by Mollie’.

Trendsetter Tuesday: Caroline Flack

Say you what you want about Ms Flack, just don’t say anything negative about her to me. Why? I really adore her. And her style. She may have become notorious for her younger-than-most track record of boyfriends, but her style proves that she’s one foxy lady, and truth be told, why wouldn’t the young guys be after her?

I don’t remember the exact point when or the outfit that enticed me, but it happened somewhere along the way and I’m positively hooked. One thing that excites me about her is the lack of trousers we see her in, on the street (now now) and at media induced events. I’m sure her mother told her to flaunt what she has, and gorgeous pins are definitely one of her assets.

Caroline doesn’t just turn up to events looking the bee’s knees, but she looks fabulous in her wellies at a festival and in her wedges walking down the road.

Below are some of my favourite outfits I have found from the 34 year old Londoner.

Her event outfits are gorgeous, a little bit cheeky but tremendously sophisticated. I think she hits the right side of classy.

Trendsetter Tuesday: Julie Sarinana (Sincerely, Jules)

This weeks trendsetter comes in the form of Julie Sarinana (after an elusive game of ‘ibble obble chocolate bobble‘ in Photography class), more commonly known in the fashion and blogisphere as Sincerely, Jules.

I remember back in 2011 when I started to frequent Instagram again, I found Jules’ account, and despite having no clue who she was, I proceeded to follow her for her pretty posts and fashion ideas. It was only earlier this year that I realised she was a well known style blogger. It would appear that I’ve always been clued in, eh?

What I adore about Julie’s style is how divinely flawless it is, she can work the most casual look in a way I haven’t seen before. She rocks a leather dress and Nike trainers for pete’s sake!

Since starting this blog, I have started to stalk follow other bloggers very closely to see how their style varies and I feel that Jules is a great example of someone with a mixed style.

The last image shows Jules wearing the white Zara skort which I actually adore so much. That was a major style blogger craze over this past summer and Jules was actually one of the reasons I purchased said skort but in the black colour as it was a versatile piece to dress up or dress down. I haven’t found anything yet that it doesnt go with.

Her style is so diverse but cute and quirky, she seems to be able to make anything and everything work. I’m truly envious of her but look up to her all the same.

Stop by next week for my next favourite trendsetter.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on whose style you love.

Welcome to the world of Choies.

I’m sure at this stage you’ll know, especially if you follow my tumblr blog, that I spend many a night trailing the depths of Polyvore to find the right items to express a kind of style I adore. Often it can take hours of page turning and category searching until I have found enough pieces to create a sufficiently adequate outfit that I’d be confident to post.

However, a couple of days ago I spotted a jumper I simply adored. Thankfully Polyvore are informative and helpful enough to have the brand website in the information box that shows when you hover over an item. That website was Choies. I won’t lie and say I was a frequent visitor of that website, because I wasn’t. I’d never heard of it.

Here is the sweater I am hoping to purchase soon! (x)

After stumbling upon this website, I began searching the categories and clothes to find a few items I quite fancied and was pleasantly surprised to adore quite a substantial amount of cute clothes.

Instantly, I was drawn to the header ‘BLOGGER WANTED’, and curiosity took hold of me, forcing me to click the link. I was surprised to find the Fashion Programme which can give bloggers the opportunity to receive Choies items in exchange for promotion on their blogs. I thought the idea was truly superb so I took a few moments to sign up.

I really recommend you guys doing the same, it’s most definitely worth applying to see if anything comes of it.

I also took few minutes to compile a couple of sets of items I really liked from their webstore.

 Overall, I really enjoyed finding out about Choies and I hope to buy from there in the future.

CHOIES

October Shopping Haul

I figured now was a good a time as any to do a small write up on the things I purchased this month. Mostly because I really don’t think my bank account would appreciate me spending for the rest of the month. Well the 4 days we have left. November will be a completely different story.

I think most of this months items were sale bargains, and I’ve come to realise that in the past 6 months or so, I’ve become a sale junkie and am starting to repel paying full price for anything again. I really need to get over that.

There are a few other things I treated myself to this month but I either posted them in my FNO post or I’m too lazy to dig them out so that totally does not count. I guess this post counts for the past 2 weeks then.

ImageImageImage

I’ve totally been itching to embrace the tartan for this season but I just haven’t been able to find anything that I actually wanted to spend my money on (aside from those Topshop shorts that I fell in love with and cried about 10 litres of tears over because they did not fit my body type). I love the detail of the button connecting the straps to the bib and the rounded edges of the shorts. They do need altering slightly but overall I love them.

SALE: G21 @ Asda – £7

ImageImage

I LOVE LOVE LOVE playsuits, when my mum pointed this out online, I fell in love. The plain black material works so perfectly with the segment of colour framing the neck. It hits the current season with the playsuit being teamed with tartan. I literally cannot fault it and it looks so slimming on, hanging perfectly.

SALE: G21 @ Asda – £7

I thought this was so divine the moment I saw it, and for once Primark didn’t let me down. The ‘Burberry’ print is shoved down your throat in nearly every store you enter right now but I genuinely love it. It’s cute and girly but the colour can switch up the personality of your outfit and I simply adore it. The length is perfect on me, the back of the waistband is elasticated and the front it button down.

SALE: Primark – £5

ImageImage

Last month I bought a black and white spotted shirt from H&M but I wasn’t overly comfortable with the size (even though I bought a size smaller and it was still too big) and the material was really poor because it creased so so easily. However I went to the new Matalan store in Liverpool and found this cute shirt. It worked out the same price as the H&M one but the material is much better and I love it.

Matalan – £12

ImageImage

HOORAY FOR TOPSHOP’S MID SEASON SALE! I’ve been lusting after this jumpsuit for months now but I just didn’t fancy paying £38 for it. So when I saw it in the sale for £20, I had to add it to my basket. I was dubious about it, I thought it would cling all wrong and be too long (I was right there) and I thought it would look awful, but I had to try it regardless. When it arrived and I tried it, I was in love. I rolled the ankles up a little and realised that it was actually so flattering on me, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I picked a winner there.

SALE: Topshop – £20

ImageImage

Oh my days. I fell unbearably in love with these shoes a couple of months back when my good friend Carre (TheCarreConcept) wore them in an OOTD picture. However, I could absolutely not warrant the £62 price tag when I saw them as a pair of shoes that would barely be worn. Honestly, I nearly cried when I spied them in the SALE section on TS’s website. I’m glad to say that with these shoes, and that jumpsuit above, I have found my birthday outfit.

SALE: Topshop – £35

Image

Normally I find store sales really stressful but Topshop’s excited me more than anything. I thought this little print crop top was so cute and it can be paired with so many things as well as being dressed up or dress down. I cannot wait to wear it.

SALE: Topshop – £5

ImageImage

Back in August, I contemplated buying these after wanting a new pair of jeans so bad. But like most things, I was unsure whether I liked them on me enough to pay the full ticket price, alas the sale was kind to me once again and I nabbed these jeans for half price! I love them, I love how casual and comfortable they are but also how chic and funky they can be. That darker denim side stripe is perfect.

SALE: Topshop – £20

ImageImage

Lastly, I thought it was time to treat myself to some new lipstick’s. After crying over LUSH’s ‘Drive’ purple lipstick, I decided a bold colour was the way forward for me. I’ve never been one for lipstick but it seems this year I have found my love for it and buying these was a good choice, much like the Topshop one I purchased at FNO.

I’ve been wanting to try out something from the Little Mix make-up range that they have done for Superdrug, a Collection collaboration and I had heard so many raving reviews on the Perrie lipstick, I had to buy it myself. Verdict? I BLOODY LOVE IT. Absolutely adore that colour. I also bought a gorgeous shade from Collection own range, however it looked more purple on my hand and more pink on my lips but I’m not complaining too much there.

Both: Superdrug – £2.99 each

So that’s my haul for this month, check back at the end of November to see what I purchased throughout the month and on my birthday trip to London. Let me see the bright lights!

Peace and love
