...aqua for awards?

 

first heard of aqua on asos a few years back and i didn't really like their collection. very structured and futuristic with loads of cut-out panels, just a bit too overworn and chavvy for my liking (HATE cut-out dresses and those dresses with see through black panels over your boobs... bork). ANYWAY, i think it was down to the way asos branded them, they used the commercial (boring) models and not the edgy fashion models (i've noticed i'm instantly drawn to clothes that are modelled on the models i like). here is an example of how asos model the fleetwood maxi. doesn't compare to the images above.

so i then came to find aqua's own store/site a few months back and their new collection is beautiful. they portray their own brand SO much better. models are perfect, website's really cute and the dresses are amazing.

SO we've been nominated for young entrepreneur of the year and best creative business at this year's win awards and i want to wear aqua! i've got two weeks to find a dress and have kind of shortlisted it to these three. the invite is black tie. let me know your fave, i need help!

evil twin.

 
SKIRT // EVIL TWIN
TOP // YAYER
RINGS // ROCK 'N ROSE
NAILS // PINK BLUSH @ MODELS OWN

haven't posted all week for two reasons; been dead busy and been wearing rubbish clothes. more mag and itv's this morning featured our little halloween pumpkin hat so the office has been a bit mental! so today i wore this lovely tobacco maxi from evil twin. i bought mine from asos but it's now sold out. i also have the ashes to ashes print which is now only £45 on asos, grrr! it sits really high on the waist (just how i like), only thing is it's completely sheer and you've gotta put your own body con skirt under it which i find pads me out a bit too much. ah well. also sporting my lovely yayer nirvana tee i posted about last weekend and some newbie rock 'n rose rings i'm a bit in love with.

nirvana tee.

 
VEST // YAYER

worked from home/the sofa today as yarm fair's currently on and we can't get to the office, nightmare. so no proper outfit post today. got this nirvana vest from yayer last week, i love it. you can also get it in pink floyd, guns n roses (i got this too) and sex pistols. i got the small and kind of wish i'd got the medium before it sold out, i'd like it to be a little more drop hole vest.

bill†mar.

TASSEL DRESS // BILL†MAR
FLORAL SHIRT // BILL†MAR
CROSS TOP // BILL†MAR
TASSEL CROP TOP // BILL†MAR

have LOVED bill†mar ever since we first launched our boutique on asos marketplace and i spotted their boutique in amongst the huge amount of talent that marketplace houses. i've had a few pieces sat in my basket for months, but i can't bring myself to purchase as they're quite pricey. everyone's got that price point in their head where they double take and actually THINK about whether or not to purchase. well, this is round about mine. abso love their range though, will treat myself soon.

you can shop their online store here or their asos marketplace boutique here.

dalmation print.

 
TROUSERS // YAYER
TOP // TOPSHOP
BOOTS // ASOS
RINGS // VIVIENNE WESTWOOD + ROCK 'N ROSE
BRACELETS // ROCK 'N ROSE
GLASSES // H&M MENS

got these amazing peg leg dalmation print trousers from yayer last week. bargainous at £15, plus there was 20% off in a mailer i got from them. they're dead comfy and super high waisted. the top's from topshop, my fave for tucking into things at the moment. it's silk(y) and feels and looks much more expensive than what it was (about £18). it's got a lovely exposed zip down the back too. comfy black wedge boots are from asos. jewellery is ours (of course), got the orla ring on (as seen on fearne cotton) and some amazing new vintage bracelets that arrived at hq this morning. they should be online this evening! glasses are from h&m mens, i've got a massive head (lol) and usually women's are too narrow!

SHOES // SENSO @ DOLL BOUTIQUE

...but they're £90. i'm umm-ing and ahh-ing over whether they're worth £90. i think they probably are. bought some litas from doll boutique a few months ago and their service was amazing!

DRESS // H&M 
CARDIGAN // H&M
DOROTHY SHOES // RIVER ISLAND 
RINGS // VIVIENNE WESTWOOD, ROCK 'N ROSE 
BRACELETS // VINTAGE, ROCK 'N ROSE

hi! first outfit post, wah. went offline shopping on saturday (horrid) as i needed something to wear to a christening on sunday (now godmother to two amazing little girls!). topshop was rubbish so had a look in the new h&m that's just opened nearby. was alright! got this amazing pleather skater dress and cardi with elbow patches. tried to tone down the dominatrix look (err, that's what my boyf said this morning anyway) with the cardi. i also picked up some amazing little dorothy slipper shoes (wanted some for ages!) at river island. turquoise stone ring is by us (these just hit the store, i LOVE them) and the black/amber ring was an 18th birthday present from my big sis, have literally not taken it off in two years.
