That Monki Jacket

Happy New Year! I hope 2018 kicked off splendidly for everyone. 

I know what you are thinking. Jennifer did you need another jacket? Didn't your wardrobe collapse only a few months ago due the weight of the jackets you already own? And the answer is YES! I did need it and I have repaired the wardrobe silly - it shouldn't collapse again for a while.

This is my winter 2017 sale bargain. £37.50! Worth every penny and more. My beloved Monki never fail to produce the goods. Yes I know everyone and their granny has been rocking this jacket but that didn't put me off. If only it hadn't been £95 to start with it then I would have possessed it long before now. But hey - I love a bargain, so I am so happy I waited.

If anyone else is looking for a bargain - these boots are now down to £3 in Primark.

I wore this outfit on the 1st January when Jimmy and I went a little walk about Glasgow city centre - which was unusually busy for new years day. It was freezing! Probably not the best day for fishnets and jeans with missing panels - but you know - fashion and all that. Thankfully my new jacket kept me warm up top. A special hello to the cutest little bag ever! Who needs a Gucci bag when you can have a Hello Kitty bag!

And since this is my first blog post of 2018 I should share my only new year resolution - stop buying so many clothes for the sake of it. I have just cleared out 11 bags of clothes for the charity shop and have a suitcase full of items to sell. No one needs that amount of clothes. From now on I will only buy pieces I really love and need. And for the moment - I definitely don't need any more jackets!

Let's see how long before I break this resolution eh!


Until next time

When Did We Stop Being Nice In Real Life?


A few years, whilst visiting New York, I remember being really surprised at how many compliments I received on a huge, orange shaggy jacket that I was wearing. Staff in stores and people in the street were stopping me to compliment it. I was surprised, but I also loved it.

Fast forward a few years into the world of social media and we think nothing of giving strangers we have never met in real life compliments on how they look and what they are wearing - but how many of you are actually doing it in real life? I imagine, for most people, if someone came up to you and said you looked amazing or asked where something was from you would be a little taken a back. Why would someone randomly tell someone they look amazing? Yet we constantly post pictures on social media for strangers to tell us/ask us the same things. So why aren't more people doing it in real life? When did we stop being nice in real life?

I grew up in a generation that didn't have social media (thank god!). Anytime I saw someone wearing something I loved I had to approach them and ask where they got it from or I would never know. There were no clothes tagged on instagram back then. This meant I grew up never being shy about asking people about their outfits, as well as telling them they look amazing/their look is everything/they are killing it. 

I am all about giving that confidence boost. You never know how much that little comment could change that person's whole day.  I am also all about receiving that confidence boost. If you love something I am wearing or just think I look fabulous in general please tell me. Who doesn't want to hear that?

There has been so much negativity recently regarding Instagram and the drop in interaction. So maybe it is about time we started sharing all that love we like to share on social media in real life. Maybe it is time to take it back 'old school' and compliment people in real life!

Please take the time to stop that person you see everyday, normally admiring their look from afar, to tell them they always look great. Tell someone with amazing hair that they have amazing hair. You love their lipstick? Ask them where it's from. I can assure you not only will you make that persons day, but it will also put a more positive spin on your day. And everyone needs a bit of positivity in their life right now.

Until next time
Jennifer xoxo

You Can Never Have Enough Coats and Jackets

Glasgowfashiongirl - Pink Fur

Oh hello autumn/winter! I wasn't expecting to see you so quickly, but here we are! It is almost the end of October, how did that happen? October to December are my favourite months of the year. October brings us the cold, dark nights followed by Halloween. November brings my birthday and December, of course, brings Santa. Sorry folks, you cannot moan about the C word anymore - it is almost here!

October to December are also my favourite times of the year for shopping. Well, let's be honest, I shop all year round - but I live for winter clothes. I struggle with how to dress in summer (my least favourite season) and would much rather be wrapped up than showing skin. Autumn/winter is when I get to invest in my favourite items of clothing - coats and jackets. Who cares if your wardrobe is already collapsing under the weight of the ones you own! Who cares if you own so many you have had to store some in two other cupboards - you can never have enough.

UPDATE: In the process of writing this my coat/jacket section of my wardrobe did in fact collapse and break! Spooky!!!

As soon as I spotted this little Barbie pink fur coat on ASOS she had to be mine. Unfortunately my bank balanced disagreed and she sat in my wish list for a few weeks, going in and out of stock in my size. Never far from my thoughts, but alas, never in stock. Then, like fate, one suddenly appeared in stock and just like that she was mine. Don't you just love a happy ending!

Jimmy and I took a drive up to Loch Lomond and of course I wanted to wear my new coat. Typical, even though the forecast said sun, it rained! And even more typical, when we started to drive home the sun came out! Welcome to Scotland eh? Fur coats and rain are not the best combination, but the colour looked amazing against the dreich weather. Don't you agree? And luckily I didn't get too wet.

I would love to know what you have invested in for the autumn/winter season?

Until next time

I Heart Escada

What I'm wearing - Vintage Escada Jacket // Monki Polo // Zara Jeans // Vans // Vivienne Westwood Bag

Sometimes when I write blog posts I have important things I want to say. Sometimes when I write blog posts I just want to say look at my outfit. Today is all about the look at my outfit post.

Let's all take a moment to appreciate my vintage Escada jacket......... Need some more time? Probably! It is the babe of all babe vintage jackets. I had my eye on this for so long and dreamed of owning it one day - and now I do. Never give up on your dreams folks!

So where did I choose to go and show off my little vintage treasure? Skegness of course! Who doesn't love a day by the seaside eating fish and chips, lots of Cherry Cola and ice-cream. Our wee trip to Skegness also gave Jimmy the chance to take some photographs (of me) on his swanky new camera. He is getting good isn't he?! My posing not so much.

So prepare to soon be bored senseless seeing me in this jacket over the next few months. And if anyone sees the green version for sale - holla at me! It needs to join my vintage jacket collection!

Until next time - lots of love xoxo
