Let's Bring on 2014

Rather than reminisce on 2013 and show you various photos of the past year, I want to focus on what's to come. So here is a new outfit with my jumpsuit which I haven't shown on here yet. It is such an effortless item that can be worn in many ways. Here I paired it with pointed stilettos and an oversized clutch as well as my slouchy trench coat which has been one of my favourite items this year. 
All that's left is for me to wish you a very happy new year. Let's bring on 2014, I have a feeling it could be a good year...

Winter Wonderland

Yesterday my family and I made our annual visit up to london to visit the Winter Wonderland and see the christmas lights. We usually visit before christmas but we just didn't get the chance this year. I had a very cosy outfit on with a fur lined coat and boots, perfect as it was rather cold and we always end up walking a long way. Just a couple of photos from our day out my favourite things being the beautifully colourful sweets and treats in the market and all the twinkly lights. 

TOPSHOP coat, jeans and boots, M&S jumper, MUSE handbag and VINTAGE sunglasses.

Styled With Glamour Wears... Christmas Party Outfit

Ahh it is finally the christmas holidays, it has been a busy few weeks so a break is just what I need right now. Christmas time means christmas party's and this is what I wore to my school christmas party. I didn't want anything too fussy but also something with a bit of wow so I decided on this dress as it has a classic shape but also a beautiful metallic finish. Silver jewelry and leather accessories finished the look. I also used my oversized slouchy clutch which I made the other day but I will do a post on the bag soon. 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, christmas is nearly here now...

I am wearing ASOS dress, NEW LOOK shoes, TOPSHOP earrings, DOROTHY PERKINS rings and bag made by me.

Styled With Glamour Wears... The Basics

Bit of a back to basics sort of outfit: trench coat, leather jacket, white t-shirt and ripped jeans. All finished with stilettos and a tiny clutch. Just what a cold tuesday needs, although if I am totally honest I did have boots on and a huge bag for school but these look so much better. It really is starting to get cold now so the layers are returning hence the two jackets today, I have decided as much as I hate winter and being freezing most of the time I do enjoy playing with layering.
Hope your having a lovely week

Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore!

(Picture from Somerset House website)
Its been so long since my last post, damn dark evenings stopping me from being able to take outfit pictures when I get home from school. So not an outfit post but the Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore! exhibition. Last Thursday I went up to the Central Saint Martins open day so rather than waste the rest of the day in London I went to the exhibition at Somerset House. If I'm honest I wasn't overly familiar with Isabella Blow before the exhibition but I so wish I had been she seemed like an amazing lady. And a truly unique lady as well, I cannot think of someone who supports and encourages upcoming designers like she did with Alexander McQueen and Phillip Treacy. The exhibition as well as telling the story of her career showed the story of McQueen and Treacy and how she helped them grow and emerge as successful designers, featuring plenty of their beautiful designs including garments from the collection they designed together in her memory along side a constant loop of the whole collection show. It was such a good exhibition I really suggest going to see it if you get the chance.

Styled With Glamour Wears... The Knitted Jumper

Another knitted creation my amazing gran created for me. I have so much respect for knitting as a skill, to be able to create all these different patterns and designs out of a simple ball of wool is amazing, I think it is about time I picked up the knitting needles for myself again. We based the design on a zara jumper I had seen which featured the beautiful stitch that makes up the front of this jumper. And a plus is because it is knitted in aran it is so so warm. Paired with my peg leg trousers which smarten the look and are a nice change from jeans. I thought I might just briefly mention my hair, I had a few inches off to even out the length and get rid of my layers creating the blunt finish I wanted. 
Thanks for reading.

I am wearing Jumper knitted by my gran, ASOS trousers and NEW LOOK heels.

Styled With Glamour wears... The Beanie

Happy Sunday, hope you've had a good weekend. I have had quite a quiet one but as I wasn't working today I went down to the seaside for a change of scenery. Wearing black jeans and leather jacket this is a go to outfit mixing in grey and pink, two of my favourite colours. The temperature is certainly dropping here though so the beanie hat had to make an appearance, keeping me nice and warm while matching my bag perfectly.
There are a few more photos here than I would usually post but we used my uncle's Canon camera so the pictures came out so much better and we finally managed to achieve the blurred background effect I have wanted for so long. I think it is time to save up for a new camera. What do you think of the photos?

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! 
Carving pumpkins is a tradition in my household since my sister and I were little so this is our creation this year. Firey eyes and jagged mouth is a bit different to my cat design last year but also much more scary. It also helps attract waves of kids to our front door so we are well stocked with candy and I just hope there will be some left over!
Being a really dull rainy day today, my sis and I decided to do a spot of baking. If I'm honest I am a bit of a fail in the kitchen but I am starting to enjoy the odd bit of baking so we made these Smarties brownies which actually turned out really well! We used a BBC recipe which was adapted quite a bit as we didn't have some of the right ingredients. Not quite halloween themed but they taste good.
Enjoy your halloween night x

Styled With Glamour Wears... Pointed Stilettos

All black look that I wore out for dinner on Saturday night wearing my new heels. I am still tottering around in these shoes, not quite used to the stiletto yet but I just love the elegance of a skinny heel so I will keep going till I can walk without the feeling of falling over in them! 
Events have occurred today that have made me feel really thankful for what I have got and reminded me that life is short, so I just want to say thank you for reading and live life to the full.

Styled With Glamour Wears... The Split Midi

As the title suggests this look is about the split midi, the splits on this skirt are rather large which make it maybe not school appropriate but I hate to just save clothing for special occasions so an oversized jumper and boots make it more wearable even if I had to hold the skirt slits shut when wandering round school as it tended to reveal both legs in the wind.
In recent times the midi skirt has completely over taken the maxi, shops are full of midis in full and tight forms and I was thinking about why the midi can be seen as better than the maxi. Personally I prefer the midi, I think they have a greater wearability than the maxi and have a much more stylish quality to them. They also come in a much larger range of styles meaning they can be worn by everyone, adding heels means those who are shorter can wear them, a tight style flatters curvy figures and an a line shape suits wider hips. Anyway enough with the midi I must get back to my homework, do you prefer the midi or maxi?

Wrap Dress and Slip Ons

I never thought I would be the kind of girl to wear these slip on trainer shoes but here I am, I love that this blog has helped me try out new looks and ideas. Another fab thing is this dress which I bought the other day, I must confess I can be a bit of an impulse buyer but I was sensible and waited a few days before buying this. I have a theory that if you see something and you continue to think about it after you've seen it about how to wear it with other things in your wardrobe then its a good purchase. So I am afraid you might see this dress a lot over the winter. Here with a casual spin of leather and flats but I am thinking it will be great with heels as well as a winters coat and boots. 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
