“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." - Coco Chanel

White Boyfriend Blazer

I love how a classic white blazer and heavy jewellery can transform a look. Today i woke up and just grabbed the nearest clothes to hand knowing the garage guy would be coming any minute to collect my car. Not really the most inspired look and on the whole a bit scruffy.


Vest – Warehouse, Jeans – New Look

What you can’t see is the top is a bit missshapen and holey and probably past its best but you know people pay good money for that worn, lived-in look, just take a look at Kate Moss.

I was just having a rummage in the wardrobe when the white blazer caught my eye and hey presto!



Blazer – Zara





Necklace – Miss Selfridge, Rings – Asos, Accessorize, Topshop and Jwlry

I wanted to create a polyvore set of this look but it’s far too slow on my laptop and I’m too impatient so i’ll leave  you with one from Golestaneh.

I love how she adds black accent pieces for a gothic evening look above and a classic white tee for a relaxed daytime look below.

I just love her style and her penchant for Zara, obligatory Michael Kors watch and Chanel 2.25. You can check out her blog here, it’s fab and she’s recently opened a store in Cologne, fingers crossed she’ll bring her style to the UK soon.

Sorry guys that I’ve been AWOL recently but in my absence i turned 25 and with it came a quarter-life crisis. You may have heard Jameela Jamil tweeting about this and I definitely can feel where she’s coming from. Hitting the big 2-5 milestone was not a celebration for me, instead it only served to highlight how little i have achieved in my life. Depressed, doesn’t even come close! When i graduated 4 years ago i envisioned my future to look bright (to quote the Orange ads), living it up in London town, climbing the career ladder, saving up for a deposit, making new friends. Instead i moved back home, took a temporary job to clear the overdraft and 4 years down the line i'm still where i started - where did it all go wrong? I worked pretty damn hard through school to get good grades not to mention the hard (and very competitive) slog of a journalism degree resulting in a 2:1 and i was expecting great opportunities to come my way. Disillusioned much?

Ok, i know the only way I'm going to get a better future is to go out there and grab it, but the future has been looking bleak for such a long time. Honestly i don’t really know what my options are for the future but maybe i'll be investing a little money in the Euromillions to fulfil my dreams.

In other news, you may have noticed i’ve changed the name of the blog, i haven’t been keen on the old one for ages, i think i was so keen to start blogging i didn’t really think it through. Hopefully The Fashion File will stick, but what’s annoying me is the URL, i may just have to start again from scratch or go back to the previous name, either way I'll keep you updated.

You will be pleased to know I didn’t stop spending whilst I've been offline, well i needed to cheer myself up somehow! So expect more outfit and recent purchases posts.

I’ll leave you with a few words from Bob Marley…

Don’t worry about a thing, ‘cause every little thing gonna be alright…..
