Your Spring-Season Needs: #2 SNOOPY X RODNIK

To carry on my spring season needs, I feel the 2014 motif trend needs to be relived. With Nostalgia still on top for being a social trend, carrying on through to AW15 (did you see AGI & SAM menswear collection?) my spring essentials turns to those childhood memories.

Recently, from Urban Outfitters I purchased SNOOPY X RODNIK backpack, reduced to £20 from £75. SNOOPY X RODNIK collection was released end of 2014, filled with Snoopy co-ords, bags, hats and accessories. The label is known for bringing child hood memories and illustrations to the street. With inspirations from Moschino with the throw back to barbie, seems like bringing back childhood toys and tv shows to fashion is trickling down dramatically.

Since getting the backpack on such a good deal, it has literally became my most favourite thing in my wardrobe, turning any simple outfit to a vibrant, individual style. With fitting around the motif and nostalgic vibe, the backpack is ideal for those daytime needs, fitting almost all my essentials in it! Dream!

But with such a statement piece, how do you wear it?

Your Spring-Season Needs: #1

I've been gathering together some big needs for your wardrobe this spring. Starting with my beloved floral headband, it's an absolute steal and is ideal for those grunge floral look and the perfect addition for the festival vibes. 

Reduced from £20 to £5 at TOPSHOP, it has to be one of my best buys yet this year. Made by FREEDOM jewellry, grab yourself one at any TOPSHOP store. (sadly due to sale reductions it's now been taken off online).

Spring is around the corner

Its getting close to spring, which means my florals are coming back (I know, ground breaking). I've had the  pleasure to style my outfit today around my new GEMPORIA gift, the Teardrop White Topaz Bracelet.

With silver always being my key choice of jewellery, I was really excited to get my hands on some gold and see what I'm able to work with. I chose to go down the route of a more subtle outfit, with a bit of an explosion of colour for the beginning of spring. Topped with a heavy black jacket, to keep myself warm and comfortable. The bracelets finished the outfit completely. With delicate detail, it was perfect match with the skirts print.

Its Dark and Mysterious for AW15 @ JWH

On behalf of Mess Magazine I was able to attend Jamie Wei Huang's AW15 collection. She blew me away last season with a range of light pastel colours, range of rough textures and chunky shoes. However with the turn of the Fall season, she has took a dramatic change.

Gothic, sadistic and brutal was my sudden thoughts as soon as the collection started. With a constant soundtrack of Rammentien being played as the models stormed down the runway it clearly shown that Huang had took every aspect into mind when creating a dark atmosphere.

Every garment was something I'd love to add my little dark side to my wardrobe. Tough leathers, buckles and dark tones kept the doom mood flowing, with a mix of tailored jackets and puffy shapes. A spread out palette of maroons, navy's, blacks and greys was ideal for the AW coming season, and was a complete contrast to her SS15. It wasn't all doom and gloom, as pale pinks and whites were also included into the collection. Sweat look hair and drowned faces of the models also topped the garments, bringing together the full goth outfit.

My key highlights of the collection was the fur detail. This added warmth to the collection and gave Huang that individual touch. Block shape and chunky backpacks is still a growing trend, which is also shown as well in the collection.

Gothic vibes has been seen all throughout the season of AW15. With menswear also jumping on the trend and other big brands such as Alexander Wang, it's no doubt the dark side of your wardrobe is going to make an appearance later this year.

#LFW Diaries: Outfit 2 please!

Day 1 was exceptional. I had so much fun! By the end of it, I was already eager to get day 2 on the way.

I went for a more grungy, motif today. It's black, on black, with a surprisingly bit of colour and my true love, the Ronkin Snoopy backpack.
I even brought out my TOPSHOP X GLOW flashing trainers, however with the sun shining bright, so the flashing lights weren't as effective as I wanted.

This overall outfit I feel is ideal for those city day outs (especially for London) and is ideal for that transition from Winter to Spring.

Dress / Cheap Monday - £50
Bag / Ronkin x Snoopy - £75
Fur Cover / Newlook - £29.99
Leather Jacket / Topshop / - £52
Hat / Ebay / £10
Lipstick / WICKED Topshop / £8
