Hello! I’m a 23 year old fashion inspired student from Grimsby, hoping to take my degree onto professional feature writing as a career.
I spend most of my free time trawling charity and vintage shops for fashion bargains – although I can’t say that all of my fashion choices have been a success!
I also have a love for travel, photography and music.
I joined the gym around a month ago, and although I don’t go as often as I should – a quick gym session gets me motivated for the rest of the day.
I have a current work experience placement which also keeps me busy. I am involved in writing for Sync City magazine, based in Sheffield.
My style: I’d say 75% of my wardrobe is made up of different coloured printed dresses.
Mostly florals- a fashion statement that never seems to die out. I have a few lace LBD’s (or little Black Dresses!) that seem to come out of my bulging closet more often than anything else – they seem to fit any occasion that I can’t find an outfit for.
I also love little blouses with Peter Pan collars – I have so many of these! They go perfectly under a jumper paired with a little skirt.
My favourite shops are Topshop, Urban Outfitters, Ark, Cow, and ASOS Marketplace for my vintage buys. I also pop into all charity shops when I see them.
On a night out: I usually go for something I feel comfortable in – but then dress it up with statement heels and jewellery.
Most worn item: My black Urban Outfitters boots – I don’t have a huge range of shoes, so I wear the same one’s over and over. They get worn out in no time! Also, my Topshop coat has got so worn out that I refuse to wear it – the only problem is, I can’t find a replacement coat I like.
Favourite items: My navy ‘Madame Butterfly’ playsuit. I got it for £10 in Leeds 4 years ago and it’s still one of my favourite pieces. It has polka dots, it has lace, it’s flattering and it makes me feel good!
My style icon: It’s a toss up between Zooey Deschanel and Alexa Chung. They both have individual style, but never have the over-done look. ( Fake tan, etc.)
Zooey always looks clean, her make up always looks fresh and she wears such cute little chic clothes.
Alexa always has a certain glamour about her, but always maintains a sassy ‘just rolled out of bed’ style. If only it was that easy to look so good.
Favourite hair/beauty product: For my hair – L’anza Healing Smooth Straightening Balm is brilliant and smells beautiful. My favourite beauty product is my pink Blusher by BareMinerals, or Pore Professional by Benefit.
