Change Of A Dress with Miss Selfridge

Change Of A Dress With Miss Selfridge - Glasgowfashiongirl

With the festive period almost here Miss Selfridge have launched their City Style Dress Hub. They have teamed up with four bloggers from four different UK cities to talk style and tips for partying in their city.

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love my city. When Miss Selfridge asked me to come to London to talk Glasgow style and partying in my city I jumped at the chance. I mean who would say no to dressing up in beautiful clothes, dancing to Beyonce all while talking about how amazing Glasgow is and how much we like to party.

What I'm Wearing - Topshop Swing Coat* // H&M Hat* //H&M Gloves*

Winter is my homeboy! I rejoice when the stores start to clear out the summer range and winter clothes start to appear. Winter really is my favourite season clothes wise. Faux fur, cosy knits, boots, glitter and sequins - oh winter clothes you know the way to this girl's heart!

If there is one thing you really need to invest in for winter it is a coat. Whether you love faux fur or shearling, a parka or a dustcoat the St. Enoch Centre has got winter wrapped up for you. With retailers such as Dorothy Perkins, H&M, Miss Selfridge, Topshop and loads more all under one roof. You will be spoiled for choice.

I was looking for the perfect winter coat that would keep me warm but still look stylish - kooky but cosy. After trying on what felt like 100 coats, and loving them all, I finally settled on this leopard print beauty from the Topshop concession in Debenhams. Isn't she a beauty?! I feel like we were meant to be. I left her there on the Saturday and went back on the Sunday and she had waited for me. Destiny!

You can't wear a beautiful coat like this alone, oh no. She needed some equally adorable accessories. A visit to H&M resulted in this adorable fluffy hat and the cutest gloves ever! Winter come at me - I am ready for you!!!

Are you ready for winter? If not get down to the St. Enoch Centre now. Happy shopping!



Post in collaboration with the St. Enoch Centre but all words and pictures are my own. Special thanks to the St. Enoch Centre for letting me pick out my winter coat and accessories.

What I'm Wearing - Primark Mickey Mouse Shirt // Topshop Tank Top //Vintage Beads //Primark Sunglasses // American Apparel Leggings //Adidas Pharrell Williams Superstar Trainers

So you will have noticed these aren't my usual blog style photographs. While I didn't want to share all my holiday photographs from our recent trip to Disneyland (a girl needs to keep somethings private ya know) I couldn't resist sharing some pictures from our first day as it was so amazing and I actually got to meet some Disney characters. Anyone who wants to tell me they are just people in costumes please leave my blog now.........

So my day one outfit - yes it's that Mickey Mouse shirt again. Come on, you didn't expect me to visit Disneyland and not wear the shirt! This outfit is quite basic and not very colourful for me, but sometimes comfort comes before fashion, especially when you are spending the day walking around a theme park. I felt the shirt and Minnie Mouse ears were enough so played it safe with the top and leggings. But when you add those magical Minnie Mouse ears any outfit becomes amazing right?! I could quite easily wear them everyday. Damn I wish I was popular and could make it a new craze......

With regards to Disneyland - it was amazing! I would recommend it for anyone, any age! I can't thank Jimmy enough for taking me on such a fantastic holiday! And thanks to him for all my photographs - he didn't complain once about waiting around to take pictures of me with the characters. Although, after 2 and a half hours of waiting to meet Minnie Mouse I think he was close to complaining haha! 

I will no doubt share more photographs from our trip over on my Instagram page but here is a little snippet of me hanging with more characters. Look how excited Minnie is to meet me..........

What I'm Wearing: Vintage Jacket //Primark Sunglasses // Primark T-shirt // Topshop Necklace //Monki Trousers // Primark Trainers //Love Moschino Bag.

Is there any better feeling than when you find an amazing vintage piece of clothing, in your size, and perfect condition for an absolute bargain price?! I doubt it! When this bright pink 80's dotty jacket popped up on my Depop for the bargain price of £10 I couldn't resist. Yes I know I didn't need another vintage jacket but how could I not buy this beauty?! 

Buying vintage clothes has been my favourite way of shopping recently - I am just not feeling the high street stores just now and I am already dreading all the dark colours for Autumn/Winter. Although these are my favourite seasons I wish the high street would realise we still like bright colours in Autumn/Winter!

But enough about Autumn/Winter....... A beautiful sunny day in Glasgow was the perfect excuse to finally get round to wearing some of my new clothes (I say 'some' as my wardrobe is full of new things - whoops). I bought these Monki trousers last month in their sale and they matched perfectly with the jacket. Perfectly as in the perfect pattern clash. The Primark trainers are the perfect alternative to the Adidas Stan Smith trainer - comfier and cheaper too. A little plain white t-shirt, chunky Topshop necklace, big sunglasses and cute little bag and I was all set for a day out in sunny Glasgow. 

I would love to hear your vintage store recommendations - let me know in the comments. Have a fantastic week and here is hoping the sun stays shining.

Until next time - love, peace and sparkles.....
Love

Outfit Of The Day - Monki Style













What I'm wearing - Monki Skirt // Vintage Denim Jacket // New Look White Shirt // Adidas Trainers // Primark Sunglasses // Bonnie Bling Brooch 

Is there anything better than finding a new clothing store that you absolutely fall in love with?! I stumbled across Monki while down in London last month and fell in love with everything. Unfortunately the London store is the only UK store, but fear not - Monki is also available online and via ASOS.


I visited the store just as the Lynnie Zulu collection dropped and picked up a few pieces from the collection, as well as a few other bits (goodbye all my money!). And of course, since I came home from London, the online store has been my go to place for clothes (goodbye even more money!).

One of the Lynnie Zulu for Monki pieces I picked up in London was this skirt. I love clothes that look vintage but aren't vintage - vintage style without the vintage smell. I am trying to veer away from wearing jeans so much so this skirt was a perfect addition to my wardrobe. And even more so because I can wear it with my favourite footwear - trainers! I added a simple white cotton shirt, black beads and my vintage Levi denim jacket with Bonnie Bling 'Peely Wally' brooch to complete the outfit.

Well of course my outfit wasn't complete - hello Spongebob! I am not normally a fan of matching outfits but I couldn't resist my shoes and bag matching on this occasion. I love how worried Spongebob looks in these pictures - maybe the matching trainers were too much for him haha!

Expect to see a lot of Monki pieces on the blog in the coming months, and yes I may have another order on the way to me as I write this - sorry bank account! Oh and p.s - this skirt along with many other amazing pieces are now in the Monki sale. Happy shopping!

Until next time........


Love, peace and sparkles

What I'm Wearing - Shirt - Primark // Dree Jean - Topshop // Boots - Marks and Spencer // Sunglasses - Primark

Oh Mickey you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind! Hey Mickey! Hey Mickey! So how bloody adorable is this Mickey Mouse shirt?! As soon as I spotted it in Primark in Newcastle I knew I had to have it. I love the vintage look it has to it and it is a great way to rock grown-up Disney. Lets be honest you can't go wrong with a denim shirt. 

As versatile as denim is, double denim kinda scares me a bit. Is it just me that thinks Justin and Britney circa 2001 when they think of double denim? Aww man I loved them as a couple - the double denim outfits not so much. Anyway, I decided to give it a bash doubling up the shirt with my new favourite jeans from Topshop - the Dree style. I really hope Topshop do these in other colours as they are amazing and fit me so well! I added my bargain red boots to add a little pop of colour and voila! Double denim wasn't as scary as expected. In fact I may do it again.......

Are there any trends you have been avoiding?

Until next time - lots of love, peace and sparkles!
