AGE: 17         FROM: Essex        BLOG: rogue and creep

"I would describe my style as a sombre cocktail of Lana Del Rey, Kurt Cobain and Pat Butcher... but with more insanity and less pre-mature death. My favourite place to shop is a YMCA charity shop in my town, genuine American vintage for charity shop prices, it's wicked"

dress: primark // petticoat: hell bunny // shoes: charity shop // necklace: vintage
AGE: 21       FROM: North Wales        BLOG: AllyKat's Wonderland        YOUTUBE: AllyKat1990

"I have a dibilitating chronic pain/fatigue illness. So I love getting dressed up in anything from vintage dresses to Primark tees, it brightens up my day. If Im having a bad day there is nothing better than making outfit videos and blog posts. 
I get inspiration from so many sources all around me. I love all things 50's and classic and anything alternative and slightly different. 
I have a curvy figure and love playing this up by cinching in my waist to give that classic 50's silhouette

Fashtag Lookbook • Leather & Baroque

The other week I had a shoot with Fashtag at Google, along with Lexi from fashionfilth.com (or sototallyvlog on YouTube) to each create a lookbook featuring two trends for this autumn/winter. For those of you who haven't heard of them before, Fashtag is an exciting new channel on YouTube, based in stylish Carnaby, London and when they contacted me to see if I'd like to have a shoot with them I jumped at the chance - to check out more videos from them go subscriber here!

It was a really fun day and a completely new experience working with a professional cameraman, standing in front of a green screen whilst the people of Fashtag hooked me up with a mic pack, but I loved it even though it was totally out of my comfort zone and it felt weird not being in comtrol of the filming and editing for once.

I created three looks for both leather and baroque - hope you enjoy!

Which look and/or trend is your favourite?

Ankle Boots at Office • Pick of the Week

office: dillydally black leather shoes, £65

I have always been a fan of ankle boots, but this year more then ever and I am obsessed with these black leather boots from Office (buy here) as they're simple, classic and will go with anything. Team these shoes with rolled up jeans and a camo jacket for a take on the military trend, or swap the camo jacket for an oversized jumper for a tough take on a cute and casual outfit. These ankle boots won't just be good to you this winter, they're be great all year wear - style them with floral dresses in the spring/summer!
(left) office: dillydally tapestry shoes (right) office: dillydally tan leather shoes, both £65
These ankle boots from Office are also available in an ever so trend tapestry (buy here) and a more subtle tan leather (buy here) which can all be styled very easily but keep other patterns to a minimal when wearing the tapestry shoes - I love them all, but how can I justify buying all three pairs!?

Which pair are your favourite?

Sister by Sibling SS13 • Fashion Focus

A short fashion video caught my eye the other day and I just had to share it with you; the film showcases the Sister by Sibling SS13 collection, beautifully filmed by Gabriel Gettman - featuring luxurious golds and baby pinks, beading, comfy knits and a sophisticated take on geometric and skull prints.

"It was the perfect opportunity to take Sister by Sibling's unique quirkiness out of London's East End and into the realm of global high-fashion glamour. Inspired by W London's disco-dream interiors, we've sought to channel the bold 70s energy of Halston and Studio 54, whilst staying true to Sister by Sibling's eccentric British surrealism." - Gabrial Gettman, Director 

Sister by Sibling is the womenswear line of cult East London label Sibling, whose unique approach to knitwear has made them a darling of the press and an unmissable hot-ticket at London Fashion Week. Shot in the retro-glam interiors of the W London hotel, DOPPELGÄNGER follows four ‘sisters’ dressed in Sister by Sibling's Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. Also featured in the film is a limited-edition afternoon tea, designed exclusively by Sibling for W London, and available in the hotel during London Fashion Week. Models Dahlia, Rio, Claudia and Sonya wear gold and baby pink lurex skull jacquard sweater, cardigan and knickers; gold and baby pink lurex stitch skull cardigan; knitted short-sleeve Arabesque V-neck dress with beaded neckline; knitted Arabesque shell-top with beaded trim and lurex stripe sweater. 

I hope you found this post interesting, I love the video and photographs so I just wanted to share them with you!
