Motel rocks.

As I mentioned, I went to a Motel Rocks event on Thursday.
I arranged to meet up with the oh so charming Sophie, owner or Crown & Glory. We had such a lovely natter & was so nice to speak to her properly. I already am a huge fan of the brand (as you all know from previous posts!) but actualy getting to know the girl behind the company made me fall in love even more. You can tell it's something she is so so passionate about, and she even gifted me with a gorgeous crown on the day! Don't worry, it will for sure be making many many appearances over the summer ;-)

We popped on over to the motel event and it was very hot! Gorgeous day but very hot room! It was okay though as there were lots of cocktails and things to drink and lots of nibbles - the event was really well put together!

I saw lots of bloggers including Hannah, Michelle, Kim, Steffani, Becca (of course!), Rosie, Eloise, Shabna, Melissa Nia, stylesecretsx & Imogen. I'm sorry if I forget to mention people - it's not that I forgot who you were, I'm just awful with names! I finally met Olivia from What Olivia Did after following her blog from the beginning. She is ridiculously down to earth and so easy to get along with! I definitely hope I get to see her at another event soon!

I finally met Shirley, who is one of my favourite bloggers ever! I was very much a fangirl and felt super nervous haha, and even more so when she told me she actually reads my blog and loves it! & yes, she is just as gorgeous, if not more gorgeous, in the flesh! *super jealous*

I also got to meet long time crush Lydia, who I have to say is literally the most gorgeous person I have ever seen. We had a good chat about her amazing ombre hair, and I have deicded to get one! Hers looks amazing, and although I don't think I can pull it off anywhere near as good as she does, it just makes me want to have a change! Lydia is literally hilarious and so down to earth, not just a (super ridiculously) pretty face ;-)

I also got to meet Selina who works for Motel - and we wore the same print! Luckily hers was in dress form and mine was a playsuit - great minds think alike ;-)

Deep in conversation.. obviously ;-)

I didn't take that many photos & I'm realy sorry - but I actually really enjoyed the night and it flew by! I didn't have that much time to take pictures, between the chatting and catching up with lots of bloggers!

We got a lovely Motel goody bag & it was such a well put together event. I was so so impressed, and so flattered to be invited, so thankyou very much the guys at Motel & Selina!

Cat eyes.

Sunday was yet again another sunny day in Sheffield!
Sundays are definitely my favourite day of the week. We didn't hit up the carboot as the clocks had gone forward (boo for losing an hour of the day) so we were super shattered and fell asleep at like 4am! But on a better note, it was super sunny (yay for clocks going forward and being sunny at 6pm!) & of course I had to rock my shorts!

Cat sunglasses, ebay - £5.99
Floral orange sheer vest, c/o Glamorousuk
Vintage high waisted Levi shorts, ebay - £25
Tan faux jeffrey campbell litas, c/o soyoushoes

My mum shrunk these in the wash and I was actually devastated. They went from fitting quite comfortably, to now being a very snug fit. I actually think now they fit better! But they do that whole 'riding up your bum' thing which I cannot stand! Cue lots of pulling and tugging whilst walking haha.

These sunglasses also make me look like a little bit of a pretentious fashion blogger - But I love them! My friends did laugh at them as I do like *slightly* like an alien, but I genuinely love them so much!

Hope you got to enjoy the sun at the weekend if you had any! :-)

I saw on the news that it was going to be super sunny this weekend, but when I looked out the window today it was a little .. meh. However, it soon changed, and turned into being quite a sunny day & I was so happy to be able to wear this gorgeous Goldie London dress out and about for the first time. I actualy fell in love with the brand after seeing them mentioned on the gorgeous Carries blog, and wasover the moon when this slouchy dress came in the post!

Its ridiculously comfy and laid back, and I am now happily sat on my bed on my laptop in the dress and some slippers ;-)

Hope you all have a nice Saturday night :-)

Hello gorgeous gorgeous people! hope you're all well?

I popped down to London yesterday for a little event at LOOK HQ, it was really lovely to see a few familiary faces and a few new ones too!
I decided to wear one of my favourite dresses at the moment by Glamorousuk(who else of course!?) & teamed it with a lovely bib style jewelled necklace my mum bought me for christmas. I think it's primark, but I'm not 100% sure, as she bought it from a charity shop!

Blue waterfall dress, c/o Glamorousuk
Primark(?) bib jewel necklace, gift
Faux zara tan leather shopper tote, ebay - £18
ASOS bitten platforms, gift
Faux YSL arty ring, ebay - £1.99

You regular readers (or occasional) will have noticed a change of scenery - these were taken at my boyfriends house! I have to say - the backdrop is a million times better than mine!

I also got to wear my favoroute shoesies, the ASOS Tan bitten platforms. They are just too beautiful for words!

It was fairly warm in London so I didn't feel too silly in my dress, but I did get a few funny looks in the train station as to why I was so dressed up haha, I was also tottering around trying to find Becca to meetup beforehand.

Here are a few instagram shots of the event -

Wheres wally Faberge egg in Kings cross St Pancras, Becca and I in the toilets hehe, Red velvet cupcakes at LOOK HQ, Our fancy Mcdonalds lunch, Us in NewLook, Lovely Cupcakes from an expensive Cafe in the station, Gorgeous view from London Bridge, Becca, me and Shore & Shope

It was so lovely to see everyone & thankyou very much to LOOK for inviting me down - they have some really exciting things coming up and it's always lovely to pop down to London for the day and spend time with my good friend Becca of course :-)
I'll be in London (again!) next Thursday, doing my interning and doing lots of shop realted stuff. Busy busy busy again! I also updated the ebay shop with a few things HERE if you want to take a look :-)
Happy Thursday!

#01 March Wishlist

I used to do wishlists once a week - but admitedly I'm not a big shopper of new and high street things - I'm such a second hand shopper it's insane! So It's going to be a new monthly installment of things I've been lusting after instead!
I took outfit photos today and they turned out poop - nothing worst :-( I'm off to the look event tomorrow so an outfit post should be up Thursday at the latest. Sorry folks!

1. Asos Ablaze Floral Wedge - You guys know I'm a shoe person, and more importantly *killer wedges*. They are so beautiful, and are definitely number one on my wishlist right now! I'm unsure of what I would even wear them with but they would just look so pretty sat on my shoe shelf ;-)

2. Yves Saint Laurent Purple Lipstick - I'm after a dark purple lipstick, just need to find the right one! I like this YSL one, but not the pricetag. Any recommendations for cheapish lipstick brands? I like reallt moistirising ones as I have fairly dry lips!

3. Layer 'Aten' Necklace - I want a necklace like this to layer on top of a casual white tee and skinny jeans in summer - when it's too chilly for shorts of course!

4. Missguided 'Blair' Contrast Blouse - Wowwee missguided, always has something that I want and this blouse is so so so pretty. can just imagine it with leather leggings and oversized sunnies, just need the sun now (oh and the blouse, hehe)

5. Mellor Ware Jug - Mellor Ware is a brand that I only know of really because of my boyfriends parents. His mum owns some of the jugs,mugs, tea towels and artwork (shes a big fan!) and they are so quaint and pretty.

Hope you are all well!
What are you lusting after this month?!

Minty Fresh.

I love the mint colour right now, it fits really well with all the pastels knocking about - can't wait to rock it even more now the sun is becoming more frequent! This one is another Glamorousuk beaut, it's really sheer and light.

Mint sheer pastel blouse, c/o Glamorousuk
Black pleated faux leather skirt, H&M - £19.99
Finsk pink wedges, Gift
Black DIY studded clutch, gift (studs, ebay)
Turquoise stone ring, Primark - £2

I'm becoming busier & busier as the days go on! Aswell as my internship at FOLKSY, I'm off to London on wednesday for the Look event, which I'm super duper excited about! I love going down to London and seeing all my favourite bloggers! I'm not sure what to wear, I'm thinking THIS OUTFIT, but I'm always unsure as the weather is so unpredictable right now. The dress is another Glamorousuk (you can tell they're my favourite at the moment, right?) and I'm desperate to wear it! I'll also be at the Motel event coming up at the end of the month - let me know if I'll see any of you :-)

I have lots of outfits to show you guys & I'm sorry I've lacked recently! I'm trying to post once every two days, and sometimes it's just not possible with my schedule - but I'm definitely a 'frequent' blogger I would say, and I'm getting better!
I've also been hitting up the carboot circuit which means I can start stocking my ebay shop more & more, along with getting some handmade collars into a big cartel shop (which I am ridiculously excited about!) If you haven't seen any of my collars, take a little sneak peek on my instagram , username : shewearsfashion !

Phew! Super busy, but I hope you guys still stay with me!
Have an amazing weekend dolls!

I really wish I wore these shoes more, they’re actually so comfy and really make a statement in every outfit!

Finsk pink wedges, gift
Knitted jumper, carboot - £1
Necklace, c/o Tentative Decisions
Black DIY studded clutch, gift (studs, ebay)
Leather leggings, gift

I decided to do a little DIY on my clutch bag that James bought me for Christmas by adding studs onto it from ebay. I think it looks pretty good, even though it was quite a rushed job!
I had my kindof ‘induction’ day at my internship today which was really lovely, and it’s all really exciting and new for me! I also went to a carboot on Sunday (did you see how sunny it was!?) and it was rammed, when usually its pretty dead! Got a few good bargains including the jumper I’m wearing, and will do like a mini haul of a few of the things I got soon :-)
Just a quickie post! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

Taste the rainbow.

I am so sorry it's been so long since I last posted!

I absolutely LOVE this rainbow jumper from Apricot Clothing - It's something that I don't think would look out of place in topshop etc, but hasn't got the ridiculous pricetage/ Suffice to say I haven't taken it off since it came in the post!

Rainbow knit jumper, c/o Apricot clothing
Faux leather skirt, H&M - £19.99
Gold collar necklace, Primark - £1 (sale)
Faux Jeffrey Campbell Litas, c/o soyoushoes
Black leather large handbag, charity shop - £5
Ring, Primark - £2

Everyone is loving 'faux leather skater' skirts, & James got me this one for Christmas recently. I saw it instore and knew it would sell out quickly - & they only had a few sizes left! I picked up a size10, which admitedly is on the larger side on me, but nothing that a belt won't fix ;)

I'm so sorry for not posting so much recently, I've been feeling quite poorly and just haven't had much time either. I have some really exciting news aswell. I am super excited and feel super lucky that I will be interning at FOLKSY as a PR & Marketing intern for around 2 months. If anyone has any ideas as to what I could do as part of my role or what you'd like to see, please let me know :-) I'm really plesed I've been given this opportunity and I'll keep you all posted!

Hope you're all having a fabby weekend!

Hot right now.

Hello gorgeous people!
How SUNNY was it today? I'm getting evermore excited that the suns poking its head out and I actually wore my sunglasses today - yes, SUNGLASSES.

In February I was really lucky to be invited down to London to the event - and I had such a lovely time!

I got to munch on these really lovely falaffel things, and the brownies and cupcakes (pictured!) and then me and Becca from fashion train got a whole bag of woolworths sweeties. My boyfriend was super pleased with his little present of a whole bag of sweets haha!

I also got to see the lovely Jen, Lily, Sophie, Kim, Sharmin (sorry if I missed people out it was such a long time ago!) & of course Becca - one of my bestest friends in the blogging world. I don't know whether it is because we are both young bloggers or we're both from Sheffield (wooo northern girls forever!) but we speak pretty much everyday & just want to say how lovely it is to have a friend liek her in the blogging world - which can get quite overwhelming at times!

Me and the gorgeous Becca - bet you can tell I am 5ft in these photos hehe she had to crouch down and I'm wearing wedges!

I was then lucky enough to take away 2 of my items of chocie from their S/S collection! I decided to be brave, and choce some bright orange chinos and shoes (obviously!) in a bright colour with a nice wooden effect block wedge. I haven't had a chance to wear the ensemble I had in my head because it's been so dreary. but I wore this today to run a few errands, visit my bank, post a few items & have a general sit around and watch tv. Its really comfy & the shoes are easy to walk in.

Vintage rayban esque sunglasses, carboot - 50p

The sunglasses are my favourite - 50p from a carboot! I'm a bit funny with which sunglasses shape suits my face - I have a pretty non existant forehead and a round face, but I feel like these sunglasses suit me pretty well! And they're proper vintage too - always a plus!

I'mm off to Manchester this weekend to live it up Uni style with my amazing friends Alicia & Megan - Wish me luck! Haven't really 'been out' in ages - espeically not with a bunch of uni students haha!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend and I will post on Monday!
