What We Wore | White Walls


I've had this white blazer from Mango for nearly a year but this was the first time I ever wore it. As much as I try, I have to admit that I am a bit of a clumsy eater! I typically have at least one stain on my clothes when I go out for dinner - see the second and fourth picture for reference. So white is a bit of a no-go area for me at dinner time! But I decided to take the risk and where the blazer to our friend Kerry's birthday dinner matched with a white cami from Matalan and Polkadot trousers from H&M. And although I tried very hard, I still made a bit of blunder...Luckily it was not on the Jacket!

What We Wore | Orange and Tartan

Coat/ASOS; Trousers/Charity Shop (Eastbourne); Top/Motel; Heels/New Look

It's been a while since Fikki and I have done any sort of outfit post. Having two very busy jobs, it's been hard to find some sort of balance. But now we are back living together, we are getting our schedules back on track somehow. 

Having transitioned into AW, I got this coat from the ASOS sample sale for £15! I usually tend to stick to black coats for winter for the sole reason of practicality. But when I saw this I thought, it can definitely work with 80% of my wardrobe. For our friend, Kerry's birthday dinner, I went for these oversized tartan trousers I picked up from a charity store for £3 with the top from Motel which I got at the start of last year. I thought the tartan might clash really badly with the orange but it ends up complimenting each other quite nicely.

Event | Joy Store Manchester Opening

Last weekend I met up with Frances of the blog francescassandra to celebrate the opening of the new Joy Store in Manchester. The new store is located on St Mary's Gate, not far from the city's M&S. With lots of stores around the country and also available online, Joy is an amazing fashion and lifestyle brand. Its odd to think that they didn't have a store in Manchester already.

The new manchester store is set over 4 levels. As you walk in you are instantly drawn to their eclectic mix of quirky and fun gifts which range from books all about pugs to stunning painted teapots. Up on the mezzanine level is the womenswear section which stocks a range of stylish brands including Joy's own Louche label. I was instantly drawn to their co-ords and just had to take one home.

The next floor down has a great selection of menswear from trendy tees to thick cosy man jumpers. Perfect for the changing weather! The basement was still being renovated but should be ready for shoppers before the christmas rush.
