Underwear as Outerwear Trend - Part 1 - My favourites

Hello guys! So today I have something that's a little different instead of my usual outfit posts, today I want to talk lingerie. Lingerie can be very intimate and personal, but the trend 'underwear as outerwear', was a daring fashion revolution that changed attitudes of our 'bedroom-only' garments. Women's sexuality has often been shamed or forbidden in the media and society, but in 2015 this trend is becoming really popular and changing attitudes about women's fashion. 

So for part 1 of this post I have some inspirations for you guys and some pieces from my favourite brands! Stay tuned for the second part of this post which will be an outfit I styled incorporating this trend.


Adore Me Lingerie

I absolutely love this brand as they have a perfect collection of lacey feminine lingerie pieces that can be worn both inside and outside of the bedroom when styled appropriately. And if lace isn't your thing, they have a huge range of products and sizes that are guaranteed to suite whatever style you prefer! The best part is they're always updating this page with our latest designs and newest collections!

Monki


After purchasing a lace bralet from Monki I instantly fell in love. Their pieces are so beautiful and comfortable and they send some adorable stickers with my purchase!


Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2015 Collection


I have fallen completely head over heels for Dolce & Gabbana's Spring/Summer collection this year as they show exactly how to rule this trend in a sophisticated way.

OOTD - Tribal

Hello everyone! So exams are over and I am now finally free from school! Yes this means I have a lot of posts lined up for you guys! 

Today I thought I'd share an outfit inspired by the tribal trend and Native American culture which is so perfect for summer and really making a comeback this year. All you need is an embroidered loose blouse, layered simple jewellery, and a few cornrows (which I have become obsessed with recently!)


Enjoy!

OOTD - Fringing

Hello everyone! Today I have a new outfit post for you incorporating two items that I have purchased recently, after falling in love with them at first sight they have now become essentials in my wardrobe! 

So I have been craving a pair of thigh high boots for such a long time and when I found the perfect pair of boots, I almost cried when I saw they were sold out! Yet I was rather smug when I found out that when they came back in stock, coincidentally there was a 25% discount code of everything online! Thus leading me to sharing a vital shopaholic tip with you, always sign up to the email registry with your favorite brands and remember when the key sales are (usually after a season eg. January sales, pre-summer sales).

My second fortuitous find was this gorgeous vintage fringe suede jacket and wait until you hear the price...£15!! I myself stood in awe for at least 5 minutes at such a bargain, which I purchased at a market in Stratford Upon-Avon, which brings me to my second tip - never underestimate a market stall!

For makeup I decided to go smokey with a lot of contour for a deserty vibe, for hair loose waves which were from cornrowing my hair the night before and a couple of different sized braids with random sections.

Enjoy!
