Couldn't resist an April Fools related title.

OOTD / LOTD / WIW etc.. haven't seen one of these in a while.
Jumper: H&M, Dress: Primark.
Haa I don;t look too fresh I was tired. And I used the flash FASHIONBLOGCRIME. Left it too late in the day dint I. Not a big deal.

Being back in Newcastle means primark is on my proverbial doorstep soooo lotsa cheap clothes for meee. That place is impressing me much right now and I am not usually a fan of S/S. Man have the prices creeped up doe. You cannit really complain about paying fifteen quid for a dress doe, can you really? So I won't.

I need some new blogs to read #FF me..

whistle for a hottie.

Chung of course.

Celebrating the hundreth year anniversary of Italian sportswear brand Superga, Alexa joins in the celebrations as the chosen face and feet of the new ad campaign. And why? To increase the brand's presence in the UK and who better to represent the UK's fashion scene than the one and only. Fair play.

Remember this? Was all in aid of this baby..

Could she get any lusher? Nahhh.

The brand has sixty stockists in the UK, specialising in vulcanised pumps and include Manchester's Oi Polloi and Rift Shoes, Chiswick, West London. These are going on the wish list.

Slightly off-topic but all important nontheless; A big up to The MIDWEEK MIXTAPE massive. Representin'. The comedic duo, Ger and Vinay provide your weekly fix of musical musings and general, geuninely laughable banter, every Wednesday 4 - 5pm. Radio One eat yo heart out.

Tune in now. QUICK. GO. Its the last chance for a while.

Yay for YAYER.

A bit of an online shop spotlight. I give you YAYER..
You may or may not be familiar with YAYER but I am going to tell you anyway. This bespoke brand first appeared on my radar when 'internet sensation', llymlrs, blogged about it, earlier in the month. And as all well-informed fashion blog wannabes know; if Lily Melrose is telling you this stuff then its probably something worth knowing about. With a personal penchant for knits and out of pure curiosity, I too, jumped aboard the bandwagon. YAYER has fast become a little guilty pleasure of mine. Not that thats a bad thing.

'Covetable vintage pieces and on-trend modern styles.' - YAYER.CO.UK  
The online store offers exactly that. Something old or something new, each piece hand-picked and highly covetable in unique, desirable designs. Exclusively online, it offers a quintessentially British alternative to asos and the like.

The eclectic mix of vintage and cutting-edge, contemporary designs is YAYER's best asset, I believe. Personally, I am a massive fan of their printed garments, they have the S/S trends down to a tee; seventies palazzo pants to sheer, fringed and maxi tops. It goes without saying that you'll struggle to find copycats of these one-off pieces on the high street.

Essentially, everything and anything. I challenge you to not be able to pick out at least five lust-have items. My favourites of the moment include..
 L-R: Acid Alphabet Silk Dress, Prairie Gold Silk Shirt, Tribal Over Print Cardigan,Poppy Skies Dress
Unfortunately for me but fortunately for my bank balance all but the first one are sold out. That simple fact alone speaks volumes of the brand.
 L-R: Tribal Print Bodycon, Mini Leather Backpack, Wine Drape Cardigan (SOLD OUT), Coco Rose Playsuit

Go see what all the fuss is about..

spring forward.

Quite literally. The clocks went FORWARD, not back last night / today.
Got me thinking and hoping that the next few months will look along these sort of lines.
