Jacket: Thrift, Top: Zara, Jeans: Topshop, Boots: Thift, Clutch: H&M

So I have decided to rename my Blog "Substance", I hope you like it- after alot of humming I thought this was the right one!
This look is almost completely thrifted- I found this jacket in a charity shop by my house and I am a little bit in love with it- I kinda feel like a pimp when I wear it, bling bling!
I really want a neon dress... H&M have such a lovely Trend range instore at the moment I feel like if I go there today I may be dangerous!!!!
 Oh Well...

Everybodys Beautiful & Full of It...

Top: H&M, Boots: Topshop, Pants: Topshop, Earrings: Miss Selfridge

Heres a little look I wore yesterday- Sooooo comfy- I got this top from H&M years ago and you could pretty much live in it. I am ashamed to say that the ear expanders are fake,,,, I did attempt to expand my ear lobe a few years ago and this ended badly... so thanks to Miss Selfridge I can keep pretending to be cool!!!
I am about to raid some thrift stores near my house right now- wish me luck!!!

Here are a few looks I have tried over the last week- hoepfully I will have more time to blog as I am working from home more now- I wear the top from the first look so much its insane but its the comfiest fit like ever... I mangaged to score alot of the other items from thrift stores which is always the best feeling. I have been wanting to try double denim for so long now I have just been trying to find the right shirt- I picked this up in my local SHELTER for £2 so I donated a bin bag full of threads as the guy loved Newcastle United....

So I was super stoked that Richard Nicoll has been announced that he is working alongside Topshop again to do a Bridal collection...
I have no no no no plans to get married or anything but looking at these classic photographs makes me super excited to see this collection will be like...

I have so many looks to share with you guys- will keep you posted!
I got a great Marni bargains in town yesterday from H&M- will get them up ASAP none of which were my true size but it was one of them "BREATH IN" moments- I can not help myself.
I am having a dilema also- I am thinking about changing the name of my "empire"- my filofax weighs more and more everyday with all the random words I write in it...
You will have to let me know your thoughts when I get settled on a choice!!!

Cupid de Locke...

Wow... can not get over this heatwave!!- everyone is dressed so summery and its lovely! I was too scared not to wear tights as I have been a victim of the UK weather changes so many times...
I love this dress through its a DIY job- i think it was a plus size dress from a thrift store which was far too long- so with a bit of tape and thread you  have a fishtail hem...
Hope you like

Underwater Love...

Hey guys- I am sat watching the Jeremy Kyle show and it never fails to amaze me!?
Who would of thought so many women would be rocking the oversized dirty polo shirt?!
This is what I wore yesterday- had the loveliest day like ever- involved one of my dearest friends and several starbucks stops! As well as the film "Hobo with a Shotgun" NOT for the faint hearted!!! I am still not speaking to him for this!

I bought this jumper from H&M Trend- I love the colour so much!
The necklace is something that I stalked for a lonng time- I have a little "Cupid Obsession" requires a good strong neck though!
I purchased the leather shorts also- I am yet to try them on so hoping they look OK!!!

Hope you are all enjoying this sunshine!

This is my Church...

Hey guys- I wore this today...this skirt is one of my favourite ever things in my wardrobe! it is by a brand called "whereareyounow" I got it from afab little boutique back in Newcastle called SKIRT check out their site...

I have been shopping with my gran today- sounds bizarre but she is the best shopping partner in the world the only 70 year old I know that still appreciated Topshop as much as me!

The below pics are of the new Chanel campaign with Alice Delall- its been getting some mixed reviews as its grunging Chanel up a bit but I think she looks pretty hot- even though I am sure the hairgrips in the last pic are each worth more than my car...
