Oriental

132
(Jumpsuit: c/o in love with fashion, shoes & hat: Zara, Jacket: Jumble Sale)

How gorgeous is this jumpsuit?! I fell in love with the print as soon as I saw it. I can’t get enough of oriental prints at the moment, just as well I’m going to thailand, I can add to my collection! You can also get a 20% off discount if you buy this jumpsuit by quoting ‘FASHIONRUSH’ hurray!
It’s officially a week until I jet off exploring the world and I have only 1 scheduled post ready. Hmm… I’m going to try to take as many photos as I can this week but its stressing me out so much, I really want to keep my blog going whilst I’m away but its a lot of work. I’m going to be changing my blog when I come back anyway so expect very exciting things to come. I have to keep quiet for now but expect big changes from march. I really hope you will all still be interested in my blog when I come back!
big love x

So on Thursday night, the lovely Amy got me a plus 1 invite to the motel blogger party (bit upset I wasn’t invited in the first place seeing as I wear motel aaaallll the time) and boy was it fun! I met Amy early and we went for a little late lunch before the party and then went and got ready in costa round the corner, we were sat there with our drinks and make up all over the table (classy bloggers thats us!) and then headed to the party. We arrived at Professor Greens club Ink and were taken to the top floor where the motel party was being held, we drank a lot of champagne cocktails and gawped at the incredible glitzy new collection. Lucky for us the first 30 bloggers to get there got to choose an item of the new collection to be sent to us, you’ll have to wait and see what I got because I don’t even know myself as we had to leave a 1st choice, 2nd choice and a 3rd choice. Overall it was a really amazing night, got to see all my favourite bloggers and party with one of my favourite brands. Thank you motel!
The night didn’t finish there for me, after the event I went to stay with my friend Grace, we went for a little walk and I spotted my all time favorite djs bondax, we got a couple of photos and they very kindly they invited us to the redbull studios after party at corsica studios so we jumped in a cab with them and went raving with them! They also invited us to their gig the next day which they were doing with flume and oh my goodness it was incredible, I’ve been a fan for flume for a while but never seen anyone so good live. So all in all I've had the best couple of days ever. I can’t wait to move to London. It’s full of adventure.

Who Ya Gonna Call?

(Top: eBay, Skirt: Primark, Boots: Topshop, Jacket: Charity Shop, Bag: Zara)

I wore this outfit after halloween and thought it worked very well. Fuck da ghosts!
I was working from 4 am till 7 pm on halloween day and got home and just couldn’t be bothered to go out. I’ve spent every year trick or treating and I was really looking forward to going out and partying as a zombie but I felt too much like a literal zombie so I gave halloween a miss. Theres always next year right? and the next year, and the next year…
So quick update, its officially 3 weeks till I jet off to Thailand with my best friend. I’ll be gone for 3 months but don’t worry i’ve already got a few sceduled blog posts ready to go, i’m trying to get enough so theres a blog post each week. I’ve worked so hard on my blog and i’m not going to stop whilst I’m away. Hopefully ill find a little internet caff in thailand and ill update you all with my travels stories and maybe a couple of outfits but to be honest my plan is to get out the hippy trousers and live in a bikini so I don’t know how well outfit posts are going to go down. Can’t believe its only 3 weeks till I go. Beyond excited.

Kooples

(Jacket: The Kooples, Necklace: Primark, Dress: Ebay, Boots: Zara, Sunnies: Asos)

Okay, so let me start on this jacket. The jacket. Some of you may know that I was lucky enough to go to beautiful Paris for my 18th birthday (thank you mama fashion rush) and of course we shopped till we dropped but mainly we went to the vintage shops which were similar to UK charity shop prices so everything was more or less £5/£10 so I ended up buying a lot for very little money. So one day after a big vintage stroll we came across a little kooples store and after seeing campaign after campaign in all the magazines I thought I would pop in and see what the fuss was about, completely understanding that there was no way I could afford anything. So I spotted this jacket at the corner of the shop and was drawn to it. It was the perfect biker jacket. Suede, silver hardware, ribbed details on the shoulders. Yeah, perfect. However the dream quickly disappeared when I found out the jacket of my dreams was £550. So I sadly walked out of the shop and wiped the memories of the beautiful jacket from my mind. But of course I couldn’t stop thinking about how much better my life would be if I owned the jacket. The next day was the day we were leaving Paris. With an hour till we had to leave our hotel we went to a local shopping centre to buy another suitcase (mum bought too many hats: I believe in total we brought back 10 new hats) and as we walked in we saw another kooples store so I quickly rushed in just to see if they had the jacket and I don’t know thought I should torture myself even more. I found the jacket, my size, half price. HALF PRICE. I died. I turned to my mum and was like this is fate. And the rest is history really…

Your Essential Guide To Autumn/Winter High Street Boots

BOOTSGUIDE_edited-1

OFFICE: 1,2,3,4
TOPSHOP: 1,2,3,4,5
ASOS: 1,2,3,4

So I searched and searched the internet to find you the hottest a/w winter boots I could find and voila I found lots and lots of perfect boots. If you are still searching for the perfect pair, here you have a nice bundle to choose from! I have covered all prices ranging from £40 to £150 eek but I am a firm believer of spending a little bit extra on winter boots because c’mon they have to last you all winter and still look chic come summer (of course I wear boots in summer, doesn’t everyone?). I pretty much wear boots all year round so choosing a pair that is going to last is essential. My winter boots from last year are beyond knackered so I have treated myself to two pairs this year because why the hell not.
Let me know which ones you are lusting over, I’m pretty much obsessed with all of these and would love to buy all of them but unfortunately I do not have £1142 to spend on a gorgeous shoe collection (yes I just added them all up) but one can dream right?

Oh My Love

So I was going to do a post on a guide to autumn/winter boots but then I remembered I really needed to get this post up. The lovely people at Oh My Love sent me this dress in June or somewhere along those lines and I hadn't put it up on the blog due to the whole camera situation, I’m sure you guys know about it by now.
Anywho, how fit is this dress?! The material is so nice and feels really expensive. It is also a life saver for small boobies as even though it doesn’t enhance them, the shape of it makes you look all curvy and boobish. Boobish. We will go with that.
Its the perfect dress for a night out on the town with your girls. Kinda like the new LBD.. LWD? I don’t know, i’m not down with all this fashion lingo.
Happy nearly weekend groovers

We All Love Zara, Right?

Waddup homies, it was so lovely receiving loads of comments from my last post, forgot how nice you guys are. Seriously love knowing what you have to say and I want to be best friends with every one of you. Can we make that happen? Maybe?
So about a week ago I went to London to see the lovely Camilla, we went for lunch at wahaca and then did a spot of shopping in Zara and I am fully blaming her for the fact that I spent £120 in there. I fell in love with this jumpsuit, like seriously in love. I’m a big fan of the whole tartan trend but I'm not so much of a fan of loud tartan so when I saw this I thought the subtleness of it was so cool. I want to wear it everyday for the rest of my life. Its super dooper comfy and I think it looks so put together and sophisticated. I like sophisticated at the moment, I think sophisticated is the new 18 year old me. Most of the time.

Big up my lovely friend Cathy for lending me her camera so I am able to blog, literally feels like forever since I’ve had an actual outfit post up. I went into Primark the other day for the first time in a about 6 months and I was pleasantly surprised by how much amazing stuff they had. How cool is this pleather skirt? I think it was £10 and I think it looks so expensive. The other day I spent £120 in zara and only bought two things so going into primark and buying about 4/5 items and it coming to just over £30 was so brilliant. Next time you pass primark, might be worth poping in and seeing what gems you can find.

Woah its been a long time. I am very very sorry for being the worlds shittest blogger. As you probably know (I have ranted on about it a gazillion times) my camera is broken and now being fixed (FINALLY) but its going to take 3 weeks. I have asked my lovely friend Cathy if I can borrow her camera now and again and she said yes so hopefully I will at least have 1 outfit post a week. I’m sorry for the delay I just haven’t felt up for blogging recently. But anyhoo i’m back, did ya miss me?
So yes, london fashion week. It was amazing per usual. It was 2 weeks ago now so to be honest a lot of it has drifted from my mind. I met up with the super lovely Amy and hung around with loads of other bloggers going to shows and hanging out in the amazing new look refuel room which is basically heaven in a room. There were smoothies, food, make up artists, hair people, a photobooth. Yeah, so, heaven. The weather was really shitty but we all ignored that and enjoyed the day regardless. After all the shows, Amy and I met up with the coolest twins in london shope and shore and went to nandos. Nom nom. Overall it was a really lovely day and I really can’'t wait for next season!

Autumn Lusts

Black set: jacket, boots, jumpsuit, hat, earrings
White: rings, boots, coat, jeans, bag, lipstick, top

Why hello there lovely people that read my blog (still find it strange that people actually read my blog and I’m not just writing to myself, so yes hello there) Blogging seems to have taken the back seat in my life at the moment and I promise it will be back up to scratch once my camera is fixed (sent it off today) previously I was using my stepdads camera and he thought it would be an ace idea to exchange his very normal nice lens to a super zoom bird watching lens, which means if I even attempted to take photos of my outfit I would have to stand so far away that I would probably end up in the next town along. Not even joking, the lens is that big. So in the meantime you will just have to put up with wish lists like this one and whatever else I can rustle up, please let me know what you would like to see on the blog (other than outfit posts obvs) because I want to mix it up a bit and make my blog a super blog not just a standard blog if you get me?
Lots of love x

(Jacket: Missguided, Top: Vintage from Paris, Shorts: Jumble Sale, Shoes: new look)

Hey dudes, sorry its been so long (again), I remember saying that I will update at least twice a week in summer and so far I have not stuck to that promise at all. I somehow end up really busy when I want to blog and just never get round to it. Enough about that, how have you guys been? I received my a level results today and I didn’t do too badly (aka I passed everything) but I wont gloat about what I go blah di blah, if any of you guys also got your a level results through today I hope you did fabulously and got what you wanted.
I’m off out tonight and debating over heels and trainers, I like to go crazy on the dance floor when I’m out so I usually opt for trainers, why not?

These photos were taken shortly after arriving in Paris and I’m sure you can tell, I was so frikin happy.
It’s such a beautiful, charismatic city. I couldn't wish to be anywhere more perfect.
One of the best holidays. I really really want to go back. Now would be nice.

P.S: I vlogged every day in paris so check out my youtube: youtube.com/fashionrushh for daily vlogs. Day 1 is currently uploading!
