Funny story, What I’m wearing underneath this jumper is actually a collared shirt, as in a shirt with a collar that you are meant to see in the above photos. Except, me being me, I forgot to fold the collar over so it looks like a cute collarless shirt. Though I still kind of like the look if I’m honest… Moral of the story: Mistakes can sometimes be good. Who knew I could turn an OOTD post into one with such a deep meaning. Certainly not me. Also, fun fact, I straightened my hair in this because lots of you said you liked it in yesterday’s YouTube video. Yep, that’s right, we do take your comments on board – And oh boy do the lovely ones make me smile! -G,x

JACKET- CAMDEN/ SHIRT-AMERICAN APPAREL
It’s 2017, a year that I have decided to dedicate partly on saving for a deposit on a flat, I’m not sure how far I will get, because I’m self-employed and therefore income is pretty irregular- but I’m going to try my hardest, and that’s what matters right? Anyway saving or not, it felt right to talk about a purchase for a new year that won’t cost a lot and will last a long time, because we’re all looking for those in our fashionista lives.
It’s a jacket that cost me £25 in Camden and jacket of which has lasted a solid 8 years – My Military jacket of course. If you’ve been a solid follower of mine on most of my socials you’re probably pretty familiar with this jacket. But If you’re not then I am here to express my love for this beauty and tell you that 2017 is the year for you to invest into some timeless Army/Military wear too.
It’s not that I’m gaining commission on it (I genuinely can’t cause I bought it from a vintage stool) it’s just that I’ve spent enough money on clothing to know what is a timeless piece and what is not. I mean even if you only make purchases that fit in with the trends, Army comes in every year so you’ve even got that covered.

Bit of a random blog post, I’ll give you that. But I felt the sudden urge to express my love. And one of my other New Year resolutions was to create and write what I wanted, rather than what I thought would do well and so here you are!

Now if you’re looking for a jacket alike mine, I can’t send to you to a specific shop but vintage shops are usually the place to look, ebay or even one of my favourites… Rokit!

So that’s it from me, what’s your favourite piece of timeless clothing? Let me know as I’m always looking for a new item to love!  -G,x

Expensive Taste Syndrome.


I have a bit of an obsession when it comes to reading haul style blogposts; I love finding new designers, I’m very nosey and I love exploring someone else’s style.

So, I was going to do one for you, I mean it makes sense seeing as I read them all the time (literally), but I kind of have this problem where practically everything I love is way too expensive for me to buy- I like to call this ‘Expensive Taste Syndrome’.
Basically instead of buying the items, I’ve come up with the items I would by if I had an unlimited money tree. Think of this as an internet style window shop, laid out for you in a cute little blogpost.
I genuinely found this so fun and I might actually make this into a monthly thing- If you like it that is, (so please do let me know by commenting below). Above are the items that I love right now, below that are the cute little links and please let me know what your dream items are? 🙂 -G,x
