After interning for Hayley Scanlan for around 5 weeks, I found out I got the job I had been interviewed for at Harvey Nichols!!! Can you imagine my excitement!! Unfortunately this meant cutting my internship short but I had a great time working with Hayley. This weekend is Hayley's pop up shop event held at Gallery 48 in Dundee to give you the chance to buy her fabulous new pieces before the shop takes a break for the month of July. I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch night of the pop up last night and the place was (obviously) bursting with fashionable faces and well dressed guys and girls. I also purchased a G&T which was presented in a glass the size of my head :)
The above pics of me were taking the day after because I completely forgot on the night but this is what I wore! I of course sported my H.S. snakeskin biker skirt and a new Saint Laurent bag which I *may* have purchased from Harvey Nichols with my staff discount - ITS A REALLY GOOD DISCOUNT DO NOT JUDGE ME FOR BEING WEAK. Also, I can justify (ha) this purchase as I teamed it with this ridiculously affordable pair of platforms from Public Desire. I purchased these boots due to my extreme love for Vetements and extreme lack of money to afford Vetements. Public Desire has in fact (almost) ripped off the entire Vetements shoe collection... But 0 guilt from me because I am not fishing out £1000 for a pair of shoes I can barely walk in, amiright? Full links and outfits deets at the end of this post!
Unfortunately I didn't get many good quality pics from the night but here is a pic of me n Hayley and my giant G&T. If you are in Dundee over the weekend or can make it through - I highly suggest heading to Gallery 48 for a good look/shop of this amazing collection.
Top - ZARA
Necklace - Are You Am I
Skirt - H.S. by Hayley Scanlan
Bag - Saint Laurent
Rings - The Great Frog
Boots - Public Desire
**side note: DO NOT purchase anything from the Hayley Scanlan website throughout July as it is closed! Also, I paid nowhere near as much as £950 for the YSL bag due to the Harvey Nichols sale and staff discount. I tried to find the match for this bag somewhere else but this is the closest I got!

Recently, I was lucky enough to be contacted by lingerie website Yandy and told to pick out a few of my favourite pieces in exchange for some Pinterest action promoting their gorgeous new range of bras. It's always exciting when brands get in touch with proposals like this and of course I took the opportunity to indulge in more fishnet items... On top of a few really cute dresses, I also got this J Valentine light up coat (I would have photographed it in action but this is super hard to do when you're not a photographer and have no idea how to work your DSLR to the best of it's abilities...). I am currently awaiting an invitation to a rave to really put this awesome ensemble to use but for now I have been teaming this adorable cropped coat with high waisted skirts and jeans.
A fishnet dress is a totally wearable piece in my opinion and I was worried this one might come up a little short but it was the complete opposite. This baby can stretch down to your knees and, believe it or not, it is super comfy. The lil tube dress I'm wearing under it is just $5(!!!!!) and feels as though it's almost made of swimsuit material. Great quality for the price.. plus it sits perfectly underneath the fishnet number. Both come in different colours so don't let the neon pink put you off.
The masses of pieces available on Yandy can be daunting but it is worth having a browse, plus the shoes are to die for... A lot of pieces aren't for the faint hearted but I would highly recommend it for affordable undies and uber cool fishnet tops. More blog posts to come on my delicious goodies but for now, here are some more of my favourite pieces -
J Valentine sequin mesh pants (um, OMG)
Feathery marabou heels (it would be rude not to..)
