Today I’m wearing

Today I’m wearing a bright orange pair or shoes I got from the amazing Attika shoe shop of Marrakech (34 Rue de la Liberté, Guéliz. If you ever take a holiday to Marrakech you must go here, beautiful shoes, super chic, super cheap! I spent £40 per pair and they are made like shoes worth about £250! Amazing!

I’m also wearing a vintage handmade Liberty print dress which was an amazing charity shop find! It’s so pretty, so beautifully made and cost a snip at £3! It’s just lovely!

I am also wearing one of my current favourite necklaces, my peg necklace by Katie Mullally.I bought this a while ago, but since then I have found out that it is now sold on My Flash Trash, which is pretty cool!

I love finding special things, and this outfit features a few lucky finds which I love wearing!

Minnie Mouse Project at London Fashion Week

Minnie Mouse has been a busy lady this season inspiring a whole host of designers, from Giles to Hillier, from Piers to Nicoll. This is one hell of an exhibition! After is has been on show at LFW, it will be auctioned off on eBay, I’m not going to lie… I’m interested!

This exhibition was so good, I just loved it! Everything was displayed in red and white polka dot cabinets, every designer was photographed with a Minnie Mouse in the corner of the studio. Everyone had a different take on their muse, and they had all taken her iconography to a different place. Here are my photos… If you are at London Fashion Week pop along and see this. It is really lovely! When you go to reception to get your pass, it is just in the corridor on the left.

The circus has come to town!

I recently popped into the shop Fee Fee La Fou in Dalston, London. For those who don’t know, Dalston is super hip and Fee Fee La Fou is super fun!

So what is it?! Oh it’s just your average Circus themed boutique! This shop is so much fun and it is so fabulous! Inside and outside it is painted a multitude of colours, and it sells everything from art to jewellery, to handbags to light fittings! Basically if it’s circus themed and super fun, it could be there! There is a grab-machine with teddies inside, there is a carousel horse in the corner, a ceiling high spiral slide, chandeliers with toys bursting out!

So what can you buy? Everything! From the bowler hat lamp shade to the art on the walls, the jewellery in the cabinets and the ring master greetings cards! Even the furniture, it’s all fabulous and circus themed and it’s all for sale!

Fee Fee La Fou is located on:
6 Bradbury street,
Dalston,
London.
N16 8JN

From Dalston Kingsland it is just a stones throw. If you are in the area, or in London, you really must pop in! There are so many great things to buy and it’s really fun and not like any other shop I can think of!

Blush me up! Frankly scarlet by Mac

I love a bright red blusher! I love pale skin and red blusher cheeks. I like that doll effect, slightly 80s, slightly Halloween, slightly Lolita, maybe like a vintage puppet. I think it looks cool!

I have known girls to put red lipstick on their cheeks and rub it into foundation to create the effect. Only problem with that is it can give you bad spots on your cheeks as its just so bad for your skin, especially on a night out, where you may not wash it off well enough that night: it’s just not a good idea. But it is really hard to find a bright red blusher. If they seem red in the pot they won’t be as strong on your cheeks. Or they may have a horrid shimmer you just don’t want.

When I found out MAC did a bright red blusher I has to rush off to buy it, I doubted it would be as good as I wanted. But I have to try it! So the look is either right on the apples of your cheek like a vintage doll on flawless pale skin, and big eye make up. Or you can rock it 80s style with it high, at the back of your cheekbones.
I applied foundation and got my brush out. I put a healthy amount on the brush and whacked it on my cheeks. I have to be honest, this stuff is crazy strong and I looked mental. This blusher is the bright red, Matt effect I have been wanting for years. But it is super strong, so if you want red cheeks, this is totally for you, but do apply very, very, very lightly and build it up. It is super strong and dense, which is brilliant. But not for the heavy handed!

I love this blusher, my mum hates it, but I think it’s super cool! I love the colour, I love the density. I like it super light for every day, and I like it applied more densely in the evening. It’s just cool! It’s the blusher I always wanted! However, this blusher is not for everyone, so maybe try it in the store rather than buy it online and do apply super lightly and build up.

It costs £17.50 and can be bought in the MAC stores or on the MAC website. the shade is Frankly Scarlet!
Enjoy!
