Forever 21 Wishlist

Forever 21 Wishlist

1   |   2   |   3   |   4   |   5   |   6   |   7   |   8   |   9   |   10

I have kind of neglected the Forever 21 website as I probably haven't had a look for at least a good couple of months so today I thought I'd have a peak and I was blown away. Maybe it's my trip to London next week which is inspiring me but I have fallen in love. Too bad my bank balance won't approve if I cave and buy even half of this (even though Forever 21 is extremely well priced, I am cursed with a teenager's bank balance). Their new summer collection is so nice and I can't wait to visit their Westfield Stratford store next week!

Bur-Bur-Burgundy




Blouse - Forever 21
Skirt - c/o Glamorous
Shoes - Topshop

To be honest, I think the title of this post definitely sums up the weather the last couple of weeks. I THOUGHT IT WAS SPRING?! OH AND HI SNOW WANNA GO AWAY AND COME BACK NEXT WINTER?

So yeah, SCHOOL'S OUT FOR EASTER WAHEY! I'm going back to my hometown in Kent to catch up with my friends and stop off to have a lil nosey around London which should be fun! Warning: I have no wifi or good internet connection at my old house so there may not be so many blog posts, I'll try and schedule a few but I can't promise much sozz!

Back to the clothes part of this post! This blouse brings back happy happy memories of my 15th birthday party last July when me and some of my friends in England got the train up to Westfield Stratford and spent the day shopping. It was so much fun just shopping with your besties in probably one of the best shopping centres in the world! My bestie Emily gave me this blouse for my birthday so it reminds me of her which is cute hehe (getting all gushy ahh). So I thought the burgundy colour would go lovely with my beloved leather look skirt from Glamorous. It's just so versatile, I could wear anything with it!

Stripes, Stripes and More Stripes


Dress - Belk (America)
Jacket - Miss Selfridge
Shoes - Topshop

Oh my! Everyday is a new battle with my terrible camera. Some "friend" of mine at my old school sold me my Lumix G2 for £200. I later found out that it had a broken sensor and the guy was trying to blame me saying I dropped it?! So yeah, my lesson = learnt. NEVER BUY CAMERAS FROM PEOPLE AT SCHOOL K?

Anyway, my life is pretty boring at the moment. I'm spending my long weekend (I'm not sure if it's just people in Northern Ireland and Ireland that get St Patrick's Day off?) writing French and Spanish speaking controlled assessments and revising for a chemistry test on Wednesday. However, I've actually wrote all my French questions! Just need someone French to look over them to make sure they make sense.. Can't trust Google Translate sometimes!

Well, here I'm wearing the bargain of the century. I got this dress and a similar one with a different print for.. wait for it.. $10! That's like £3 per dress. I must admit this dress isn't the most flattering on me but if it's that cheap I think you have to buy it! You guys must be getting sick and tired of me wearing the same jacket and shoes in every outfit post.. SORRY. Seriously need to update my wardrobe a bit!

Also:

You've probably heard all the fuss with Google Reader being shut down on July 1st and I'm guessing GFC is going with it. It's pretty depressing as that's what I've used to see how my blog is progressing and it's an easy way to look at and follow other blogs so in my eyes it'll be missed. However, I wouldn't want you missing out on the awesomeness that is Olivia Likes Fashion so if you'd like to keep reading my blog regularly, please please please follow my Bloglovin' here

In Love With Yayer

Yayer

1   |   2   |   3   |   4   |   5   |   6   |   7

OK, so I've always been a fan of Yayer since I heard about them via Amy's blog but I took a sneaky peek yesterday and I've fallen head-over-heels in love. I used to be into more girly clothes but now I'm definitely more into the grungey 90's look. Definitely need to get some creepers and Joni jeans! I'm in love with Topshop and Urban Outfitters' clothes at the moment channelling the 90's vibe too! However Yayer is basically my dream pieces on a website. I would literally buy everything if I could! I love the tie-dye pieces especially the t-shirt above. Also I adore skater dresses at the moment. They're just so easy to style, throw on a biker jacket and you're good to go! 

So long story short, I strongly recommend you take a peek at Yayer's website. I can guarantee you'll fall in love!

Mum's the Word



Blouse - c/o Glamorous
Jacket - Miss Selfridge
Jeans - Topshop
Shoes - Topshop

Happy Mother's Day to all you mums out there! I don't know about you, but I've had a super cute day! Firstly, me and my mum made french toast for breakfast, and then we made some trifle (it's our favourite dessert!) And then we went into town briefly and went to Lush where they were having a Secret Garden Party! There were free cakes and people giving hand and arm massages, so my mum got a sneaky massage! Then I went and joined my friends at the Odyssey Arena before they went to see One Direction and had a sneaky Pizza Hut. Oh my, the BBQ chicken pizza and cookie dough is absolutely perfect. What a way to end a great day!

Anyway, so I'm wearing my gorgeous blouse from Glamorous (sadly it's sold out boo hoo). It's a boyfriend cut so it looks great worn baggy over skinny jeans! I threw over my biker jacket and I was ready to go! However it was like the arctic outside, and it was actually snowing when I left the house! Snow in March?! Where did spring go?! The weather seriously needs to warm up pronto so I can start wearing some gorge neon pieces for Spring!

Passion For Fashion (Competition)

I saw Olivia do this competition by MoneySupermarket.com and it looked so good that I had to enter! Basically you have to put together 3 looks, one for casual, party and holiday wear that come to under £200 for each look. Then email the link to your blogpost to them! Here's the link to learn more about it! 

Untitled #22

Jeans - Topshop (£36)
Trainers - Foot Locker (£73)
Shirt - Topshop (£45)
TOTAL = £154


I've always kind of dreamt of this cool Shoreditch outfit and I just thought it'd be perfect to share with you guys here! I'm in love with Nike Air Max, after walking around Westfield Stratford, you see so many people wearing them and you can't help but love them! I love how they add a pop of colour to the black jeans and white shirt. Also how can you not love the Joni jeans?!

Untitled #23


TOTAL = £73.50

I'm surprised that this outfit is so cheap, especially as most of it is from Topshop! I'm loving midi dresses at the moment and with the black and white stripes, it's so monochrome BOO YEAH! Also these wedges are gorgeous and only £35 in the sale! Finally I thought I wouldn't over accessorise to distract from the cut-out detailing so I made it simple with some dangly earrings!

Untitled #24

Shorts - Urban Outfitters (£32)
Ear Cuffs - Topshop (£7.50)
Sandals - Aldo (£35)
Top - Topshop (£22)
TOTAL = £96.50

I actually really really love this outfit! It's kind of inspired by all the outfits I see on my Tumblr dashboard. However I'm not as tall, skinny, toned and sunkissed as Tumblr girls but lets just pretend that I am! I would definitely have to be wearing my hair up in a high bun just to go with the summery-ness of it (when I was in Florida I had my hair up in a bun everyday!)

Monochrome Madness




Blouse - c/o Glamorous
Skirt - c/o Glamorous
Shoes - Topshop

When I got the chance to pick a few things from Glamorous I jumped at the chanced and naturally picked this gorgeous monochrome outfit. I've always loved monochrome and now it's on trend for spring/summer, I have more of a reason to be buying black and white items! I've been urgently needing a leather-look skater skirt like this for ages and I'm so happy I've finally got this one! It's great quality and the material isn't as tough and rigid as you'd expect but not too flimsy which is great! Also this oversized blouse, it's perfect with this skirt! This blouse would also be great just worn oversized with black skinny jeans! Overall, I'm so impressed with Glamorous' service and I'd definitely buy something from them in the future, and if you haven't visited their website then you seriously need to take a look!

Me Likey Peplums




Top - Kohls
Jeans - Topshop
Shoes - Topshop

Please excuse my dodgy eyes in this photo, I look scarily awake even though I took this photo at like 5pm.. My eyes either look half asleep or wide awake THERE'S NO INBETWEEN AHH. OK rant over about my dodgy facial expressions!

I got this gorgeous grey and black striped peplum top (you can't really see the stripes in this rubbish photo, my camera has a broken sensor so the photos are poop and I'm planning on convincing my mum and dad to buy me a Nikon D3100 hehe) in Kohls when I was in Florida a few weeks ago. I normally never look in the sales because the non-sale items just look so much more appealing but the sales are so good in America that you can't really say no! So I was looking in Kohls and I found this gorge peplum, and it was only about $10 (£6!) so I just had to get it. You CANNOT have too many peplums, no seriously I bought like 6 while I was out there... if they go out of fashion I'll cry. Also you might see that I'm wearing my vectras AGAIN! You can probably see that the sole is coming off on one side but I refuse to stop wearing them because they're the comfiest pair of shoes I own! Might have to invest in a new pair but Topshop have changed the style and they're not as nice as before *cries* 

Also:

You can get 10% off at Kohls using the promo code BLOGS10 from March 10th through May 10th.

March Wishlist

Untitled #21

1   |   2   |   3   |   4

I haven't done a wishlist for a while but I thought I'd start making it a monthly feature just so I have more to wish for!

Firstly, I'm seriously lusting over the Topshop Joni jeans! I've been loving the American Apparel Easy Jean and I never thought I'd say that Topshop is the cheap alternative for once! Also I'm a bit sceptical over buying things from AA because I know lots of people have had bad experiences with them. Too bad their clothing is gorgeous. I fell in love with these gorgeous wedges from Missguided. These would be so nice if I could actually walk in heels but anyway, they're nice to look at! I've been lusting over these wedges in the window of River Island all week. They're so nice, but I probably would never wear them. These and the Missguided wedges would go so well with a midi pencil skirt! Lastly, I love this neon jumper from Glamorous! I love jumpers because they're my go-to piece of clothing to just throw over skinny jeans. Also, neon is so on trend for Spring/Summer!
