I'm living on such sweet nothing

I can't stop listening to the new Florence and Calvin Harris song. Pretty sure I'll play it on repeat until I'm sick of it. Something in the lyrics just seems to resonate with me at the moment.

Anyway I've been a busy bee on Polyvore creating some sets of things I really, really want. I think I'm going to need to prioritise or find some much cheaper versions of the things I want.With winter creeping on us, everyone needs some warm boots so I've included some studded lovelies that should do the job. I'm also in need of some flats for work as mine have been ruined by walking through every single puddle I find. It's not big and it's not clever.

And then you have Topshop. I have a love/hate relationship with this shop and always have. You can find much cheaper versions elsewhere on the highstreet but they never seem to be quite of the same quality. Sometimes Topshop is filled with beautiful treasures, quirky pieces and the most lustworthy shoes. However, I've also been in a few times to discover items that only size 6 models can wear successfully. At the moment I'm fully embracing them and all of their offerings. The pieces below are taken from the American shop (dammit Polyvore, do a UK version please) but I'm pretty sure most of them will still be available in the UK. It's like someone asked me what my perfect outfits would consist of and then went and stocked it all in Topshop. I want to own ALL of the things below but I might have to find some cheaper versions or beg Santa for some epic presents this year.

Can anyone direct me towards a UK version of Polyvore? Or cheap versions of the clothes above? Help a damsel in distress! x

Style Crush #18: Lauren Conrad

I've always loved Lauren Conrad's style but even more so recently. Her hair has the most gorgeous colours running through it and she is always perfectly preened. Here are a few of my favourites:

How I wish I could do a fishtail plait
Belt at the waist and killer legs on show.

I want this central outfit SO much. Plus the hair please.

Leather leggings, blouse and cute bag.

This outfit on the left is gorgeous. I need to find me a similar dress.

And now for my own little imagining of her style. I've included cheaper options aswell as the pricier things (hello super expensive leather leggings)

Uh oh. My urge to shop is growing...

Cosmic love

I took a giant break from blogging at the start of summer and I've decided it's time to pick it back up again. A combination of serious blog envy, the need to plan winter outfits and spare time have contributed to me coming back. In the meantime, I used my Tumblr page as a little creative outlet and had to use bookmarks to save my favourite clothes rather than posting them here. There have been a few little tweaks to my blog - hope you like them? Even though I haven't been writing my own blog, I've still been reading all my favourites and tweeting away in the background.

So what have I been up to? Well, summer was great - I had tons of fun and found the real me again. I also agreed to go to Thailand with one of my best friends so we're currently both desperately trying to save in order to go in Summer 2013. Saving means I can't go buying lots of new things but that doesn't stop me sharing them with you! If I can't buy them then I might aswell share the love.

Gothic style and dark colours have always been something I love. It probably comes from being a little bit 'alternative' as a teenager and I just don't seem to want to let go. You can click on the link below the picture and it will take you to my Polyvore account where all of the products and prices are listed. I'm a little bit in love with the Burberry coat and Charlotte Russe shoes.

Oxblood and studs

Have you ever been to Thailand? Any tips for me? I'm getting so excited already and we haven't even begun saving properly!
