Two outfits one night

*Blazer - Miss Rebel // Lace crop top- Topshop //
Leggings - ASOS // Shoes -Newlook
*Top - Miss Rebel // Skirt - Topshop // Sandals - Newlook
Hello you wonderful people, I am back with another blog post featuring MISSREBEL!
Todays blog post is a little different because I need your help. I have a party/ gathering (quite casual nothing too posh) which I have been invited to and I am unsure of what outfit to wear.

I was recently asked to pick and review two items from the lovely online retailer Miss Rebel.I have never purchased anything from there before so I thought it was perfect since I could give a first time buyer review. Miss Rebel sell cheap but high quality clothing to women including a plus size range. 

Here is the first outfit...

The first outfit is a simple t-shirt paired with a leather textured skirt from Topshop, I opted for a skirt because I don't want to let go of the lovely weather just yet. I'm not quite ready yet. 

I decided to choose this t-shirt because I firstly love how its looks like a simple top, but not too plain and boring. I love how it is baggy and is long enough for me to wear tucked in and out of different clothes. I have seen a lot of tops definitely with similar quotes to this one, but they were in jumpers or just didn't quite take my fancy. I can definitely see myself getting a lot of usage out of this and it may become one of my favourite tops to wear. I don't own many t-shirts (mainly jumpers) because I am normally always cold, but as it is a very light fabric it can pretty much be worn for a lazy day or a casual going out day. I also love the addition of the pink box detail around the word 'FASHION' it really makes it stand out and add a bit of colour to the top.

The second outfit...

This outfit is completely different to the first outfit, which is more summery.

This outfit is made up of a very funky graffiti print blazer from Miss Rebel, a cute lace crop top from Topshop, some leggings with mesh detailing and leather from ASOS and some black boots from Newlook. 

Let’s start with the blazer, something which I wouldn't normally buy, because it’s quite wacky and a little out of my comfort zone. In my previous blog post I based it on stepping out of my comfort zone, which is why I decided to choose this item. I’d love to be one of those people who really love to experiment and change up there style, but sadly I have never really given it a major thought. I decided to pair this blazer with a lace crop top which again is out of my comfort zone, since I very rarely wear them (due to the weather) and then some leggings with a very cool mesh detailing. 

I was pleasantly surprised at how light the jacket was, normally blazers (for me anyway) are a bit heavy, but this wasn't. I love how colourful the blazer is making an all black outfit stand out and inject some serious colour into the outfit. Before I decided to choose to wear the blazer I was slightly worried about how dull the outfit looked, since the majority of my clothes are black and not very colourful,I figured this was a great way to add a bit of 'life' to the outfit, especially as the detailing on the blazer is so beautiful.

The only downside of this blazer is that I will probably not get much wear out of it sadly.

I am very happy with the quality and prices of these items of clothing and will definitely be buying clothes from them in the future. You can purchase the fashion blogger tee or the graffiti print blazer now or anything else from MissRebel just visit and for 10% off enter BAM10 at the checkout.

flower crown

Top - Topshop // Skirt - Topshop // Sandals- Newlook // Flower headband - Newlook

Hey there lovelies! I would firstly like to apologise for the lack of blog posts I’ve been super busy doing overtime at work and I have also been struggling to think of what to blog about.

I am determined to spend more time on my blog especially my outfit blog posts and I know the camera quality hasn’t been the best quality, but with my new toy (camera) and a mum who thinks she’s a professional photographer I have now ventured out of my bedroom (which according to the rents I spend too much time in) and will now be going to different places in my local area. I took baby steps today and went out into my back garden. Since the weather was nice it was a good opportunity. I am still learning how to pose naturally and feel comfortable sorry in advance for some awkward footwork and for the annoying string coming out of the side of my top in some of the pictures.

Putting this introductory aside let’s discuss the outfit…

Last week was my 18th and also payday!! So for my birthday I decided to treat myself to a couple of clothing items.

Of course Topshop was defiantly on the list, I wasn’t originally going to buy this black chiffon bardot bandeau top but after heading upstairs and finding this cute white midi skirt and discussing with my mum what it could go with I found myself back downstairs and purchasing these twp items!

I love the floaty materials of both the skirt and the top. The skirt is nice and light and blows nicely in the breeze and I thought the top looked kinda festivally? I really like this look as it is very summery and cool in the breeze.

After being unsuccessful for finding sandals in Newlook I went home and onto the Newlook website where I found these cute black double strap sandals from the teens section!! YAY bargain! These sandals are super comfy and snazzy which you could either dress down or up.

I then completed the look with a Newlook flower headpiece, a Pandora charm bracelet and Pandora earrings that I got for my birthday.

I had so much fun having this mini photo shoot and will definitely be having more blog posts similar to this one.

What are your thoughts on this outfit?

Clueless inspired outift

Shoes- New Look
Top- New Look
Skirt- New Look
Socks- Primark
Necklace- Topshop
Bring on the extremely awkward selfie photos...  They say life starts at the end of your comfort zone, so I thought it was time that I did my first outfit inspired blog post. As you can tell I'm not the most photogenic, posey person in the world but I figured the more I do these posts the better I will get right? So here goes...

So I went to my friends 18th birthday party at the weekend and obviously I took that as an excuses to buy a new outfit, like who wouldn't? So off me and my sister went into town. I originally wanted to get a maxi skirt because of the fact that I hate my legs but after walking into New Look and seeing this cute checkered pattern skirt I just couldn't resist. 

It was then a struggle to find a top that I liked and thought I would wear again and after seeing this top in a couple of colours I opted for the yellow because me and my sister both agreed it complimented the skirt quite nicely and it looked a bit 'edgy'.

It wasn't until I got home that I realised how similar the style was to the Clueless film..  and I've always loved the fashion in that film so I was more than chuffed with the fact that I had a Clueless inspired outfit!

I then finished off the outfit with a necklace I borrowed from my sister. Unfortunately you cannot see the necklace clearly in the pictures so here it is..

Whats your favourite shop at the moment? I'm currently loving Miss Selfridge

Whats in my makeup bag?

I'm one of those people who doesn't wear lots of makeup on a daily basis. However if i'm going out somewhere I do like to make more of an effort.

Shopping instead of coursework?

First stop...Boots 

Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Rockin' Curves from Boots (£6.99): Now whenever I am looking for another mascara I like to try out a new one each time, this is always a big disaster as I never know what one to go for. I decided to opt for this mascara because it was on a special offer for £4.99 instead of its original price. I like this brush as it created curves with its curvy wand, although it does get clumpy which could put me off purchasing it again.
I'd give it a 7/10 for price and the curvy brush

I wanted to show you what it looks like on, and this is the best picture I could produce with great detail...

My slightly creepy eyes
Second stop... Topshop

Socks with a frilly top from Topshop (3 for £8 or £3.50 each): I have literally been eyeing these up for ages but I never actually considered buying them, never the less yesterday I eventually did and I do not regret it. It was such a hard decision choosing between all of the different styles and patterns, however in the end I decided to opt for the plain ones because I thought i'd be able to wear them with more things.
I'd give these an 8/10 because they are so snug and cute!!

Final destination... Staples

Headphones from Staples (£5 each): I go through headphones like there is no tomorrow so when I went to Staples to fall in love with all the stationary they own I remembered once again I need some new headphones and I originally picked up a pair for £11.99 and my mum noticed these headphones for £5 each so I thought why not? They are surprisingly comfy, although with my track record they may not last long. Good job I brought two pairs, right?
I'd give them a 7/10 for price and practicality 

Have you brought anything recently?
