rookie of the year


top: motel (dress worn as top)*
belt: primark
rings: market stall, jwlry, forever 21
nails: models own lilac dream, pink plush & bloobloo & models own wah pen *

Not been at the top of my game today, Once again got that throat infection that I tend to get every few months (long time followers would know! Its one of those things you get once and seem to always come back!) Just hoping it doesn't turn into laryngitis again! Wore one of my favourite Motel dresses as a top paired with my American Apparel skirt. You can still see my curated Motel Shop & use my Motel discount code "LLYMLRS" for 15% off. Obviously this one has sold out as I was sent it last year but I'm sure there is something similar.

The Look Show shortlisted bloggers have been announced today which you can see here. I'm so excited about Look show and potentially meeting those who eventually win! I'm gonna be there again this year, and its shaping up to be a good'un! I've been starting to plan my LFW time as I'm doing something completely overwhelming on the 16th September, I cant say what I'm doing yet, but its completely out of my comfort zone! LFW doesn't really interest me half as much as it should because I'm obviously not the ~high fashion~ type, I love the meeting people and going to all the other exciting things in the city during that time. Its always a bit of a buzz!

  9. The colours are wonderful, instantly jump out at you. I get throat infections a hell of a lot every few months too, I have some horrible times at work with it as it always develops into one of those coughs that never seems to stop once you've started! Hope it clears up for you though!

    I should do more things that get me out of my comfort zone, enjoy yourself!

  38. I love it when people wear dresses as tops because it's a great way to get use out of an item! I can never seem to get my head around it though haha. It would be lovely to potentionally meet you! I hope your throat gets better, try putting honey in a hot drink? I've heard warm ribina and honey is good for soar throats.
