The Sole Women’s Collab

I’m so excited to write about my collaboration with The Sole Women’s; a social media platform which finds the best trainer releases online and shows you where to buy them. They originated from The Sole Supplier – the hugely popular men’s version of The Sole Women’s.

When they asked me if I wanted to do a shoot with them, showcasing both my style and their’s to create a Style Guide for the launch of their new site, I couldn’t wait. It was a sick chance, for myself, to connect with a platform I had followed for a long time (not to mention create some new and exciting content – something I love to do!)

I was asked to bring a few of my own clothing items to the shoot, which demonstrated my own style. These pieces would be mixed with the team’s take on how best to style the trainers which we were creating a style guide for – The Nike M2K Tekno’s in Black.

If you wanna see how we styled the Nike M2K’s and read my interview, finding out a bit about my experience on blogging, being a fashion student and owning a small business, please check out the link below!

Stüssy: Monochrome & Stripes

Here’s how I styled my one of my newest additions to my wardrobe: the Stüssy monochrome striped long sleeve, originally bought from ASOS but I think it’s sold out now!

I paired this with some black corduroy kick flares from Urban Outfitters, Black Nike socks and Black Old Skool Vans!

Grey Camo

Repping some grey camo in the basement. Co-ord is from Missguided but sold out in most sizes a lot of the time. I reeeeally liked the grey and red so if you can get your hands on it – do!

Pictures taken by Dan Pipe at DJ Haus x Mele x DJ BORING House Party, hosted by Defected Records – with my boys at The Mannequin Collective’s crib.

Exploring The Saatchi Gallery in my 80s Red Bomber

This faux leather red bomber is soo dank. I’m loving the 80s vibe the jacket emits, paired with the retro, oversized black oval sunglasses. Both items from ASOS by the way! I matched this piece with an all black outfit because, as you can probably tell, I love a pop of colour. This outfit works particularly well – in my opinion – because the red jacket really appears to be the statement piece in this fit. The colour appears more vibrant amongst the black, but white would work well too.

I got a size 8 because, although the bomber is oversized anyway, I wanted it particularly big! Jess Woodley is a huge style inspiration of mine, and she pulls off a huge vintage black leather bomber so well.

A Pop of Colour

Hellooooo – here are photos of my most recent purchases from Urban Outfitters, matched with (finally) a new tee from Stussy’s SS17 new stuff. I tucked the tee in to the high-waisted mini skirt and threw on some fishnets to finish off the look.

There was a yellow denim skirt from Topshop which I had my eye on for ages, but they never had my size in stock, so I found this lime-coloured skirt, with a cute white stitch, which I ended up loving even more – so I had to buy it! (there’s me trying to justify purchases with white stitching… okurrrr b)

I had also been searching for a red mini backpack for ages, and I couldn’t find one apart from a vintage one which was selling on Depop. However, I was reluctant to buy it because I was determined to try it on with an outfit before buying, when I came across this one from Urban Outfitters. Dickies is such a good quality brand and very affordable – I love it eeee.

Defected Store Collaboration

I’ve teamed up with Defected Store – the clothing/merchandise line for Defected Records – to bring you guys some of their clothes, accessories and albums. When they kindly asked me to pick out some garms and items, these are the ones which stood out the most…

I chose the men’s items, purely because I prefer an oversized fit. However, there is also the choice to buy women’s if you prefer a smaller fit! You can see I have tucked in my sweatshirt and tshirts; although you don’t need to do this. I just thought it looked most flattering with mom jeans and cigarette pants.
