Winning Outfit

Waking up today I had ridiculous butterflies in my stomach, unable to eat I kept thinking oh my God what do I wear to my interview. As with any interview you need to wear something that shows you are professional, friendly, helpful and will leave a lasting impression on your hopefully future employer, a lot to ask from one outfit but I found my winning outfit a bright blue high-collared, frill layered, flattering dress. 

I always seem to feel super confident in this dress and it's my go-to outfit when I feel like I have nothing to wear in my wardrobe, it's girlie without being too over the top and the bright colour brings a smile to my face, the polka dots are an extra touch that instead of making the dress look childish and adolescent brings a new layer to the whole outfit making it fun without being childish. This dress is from primark and although I'm unable to tell you the price it will definitley be less than £15. I teamed this with my nude brogues and a dark blue cardigan. 

I will tell you later in the week if I managed to get the job.

This is no Faux Pas

D&G 2010 Alpine Inspired Runway Show

D&G, rocked the runway with some huge yeti boots for this winter, however if like me you feel that walking down to your local shops in a pair of those babies, would be a stones throw away from complete ridicule and insanity and would prefer to keep the yeti boots for a week away to the Alps (if you can afford it you lucky so and so). Then these high street versions are for you with simple fur trim here and there they defeat the impracticality of trying to keep a yeti boot clean and not to mention dry in Britain's up and down weather. 

Matalan £24, keep your feet nice and toasty while also staying on trend with the fur trim, lace up boot and buckle, the chunky heel means more comfort for you and adds you just a little height. 

New look £30, not the traditional looking fur boot, but for some reason these remind me of a chic white Christmas, to me they look expensive almost Chanel like, though that is just a personal opinion, if the white are too in your face new look also have a black version for those wanting to keep it more simple. 

New Look £29.99, a bigger heel then the previous, adding just that little bit more height. With buckle and a fur trim working down the front of the boot these shoes look classically winter but also will carry you into the next year.

£39.99 from River Island, with the lace up front I always seem to associate with winter, (due to films such as a Christmas carol,) and the chunky heel these are not only fashionable but easy to wear. 

Wedge boot with a fur trim these are one of my favourite pairs featured, £44.99 from River Island, the wedge means they are easy to walk in and give you all the height you need to make those legs look fabulous, the fur is there but not obnoxiously so and the lace up front is all I need to want to make these all mine, unfortunately with bills and rent coming up I'm unable to afford them however if you have the spare cash in your back pocket snap these up quick!

Topshop £36, for those girls who prefer flats but still want to be ridiculously on trend, these will look great with some thick tights and a long woolly jumper. 

I am fortunate to actually own these beautiful boots thanks to an over-generous boyfriend and his knack of knowing exactly what I like, these are £40 from Topshop and from experience are damned easy to walk in, keep your feet nice and toasty and just look absolutely fab, I wore mine with a white lace dress and a leather jacket to rock the look up a bit. 

The most expensive at £95 from Topshop, these have the fur trim, chunky heel, lace up front and a hiker style sole, meaning they are about as on trend as you can be at this moment in time, I feel however that these are a passing trend and without the fur wouldn't be quite as beautiful, so it's a good job topshop designed these with the fur trim, unsure about whether these will be in "fashion" for a long time, but on the right person they can be worn again and again and again because of the chunky look of the shoe. 

Okay I know in no way is this shoe fur in anyway but I thought they were too beautiful not to be featured, £74.99 for River Island, these are just the pair of shoes to jazz up a simple dress or gorgeous pair of skinnies.

Faux Fur

You may have been living under a rock for the past few weeks to not hear that fur is making a massive impact on the fashion scene right now, if you are one of these people living under a rock, come out from there and let me tell you wrap up warm in a fur coat this winter, now as fashion-eco-environment whatever friendly we all aspire to be we know as a collective that real fur is out and only faux will do, and if you still believe real is the best then take a leaf out of Karl Lagerfeld's book, who up until recently only used real fur for Chanel saying, " Technical advances are so perfect you can hardly tell fake fur from the real thing. Fake is not chic- we have got a new Chanel tweed to stop copies- but fake fur is."

If you can afford a Chanel fur coat then go ahead and buy it, however I aim to give you the best of the high-street.

Boohoo £35 to buy go on the boohoo website where they do have a wide selection of fur coats to choose from this one if my favourite from their collection. It looks all gothic vamp to me I can imagine a creature of the night wearing this beaut with some bright red lippy and some stacked platforms, all done in a very classy way obviously.

£40 Dorothy Perkins, I thought this was a different alternative to the classic long fur coat, this coat are for those who want to be in trend but don't want to step too far out their comfort zone.

£175 from Boutique by Jaeger, slightly more expensive then some featured here but worth all the money with the owl like print which is something different to the average fur coat.

£85 from Miss Selfridge who also have a wide variety of different fur coats, this one reminds me of a chic polar bear you know the ones that wear wedge boots and cute patterned tights?

£31.99 from new look currently in the sale so snap it up quick, this is the classic leopard print coat, reserved for the fashionista's of today and NOT the Pat Butcher's of yesterday. 

Those are my favourites of the moment, though knowing me my mind will be changed by next week, I suggest grabbing one of these quick, or popping into your nearest newlook, dorothy perkins or miss selfridges and seeing for yourself the range of coats they have on offer at the moment.

Glitter Saves The Day

Hello my names Naomi,
I am currently an ex film student having just dropped out of my current university course to study something I'm more passionate about, I'm looking into fashion journalism and although it may not be seen as the most appropriate degree or the most serious, I want to do something that I enjoy, something I'm passionate about and something I can see my self doing.
This blog will be about fashion as well as other little tit-bits of my life and general this that and the other. Hopefully people will enjoy reading this as much as I am going to enjoy writing it.
