LAZY OAF | SUMMER 2014








Lazy Oaf has completely blown my mind with their new Summer 2014 Lookbook. It is a pastel fantasy and 'every gothic girly, pastel loving, statement making, quirky nuts' idea of perfection. So maybe I just described myself in a few words. 

The 'Bits N Pieces' Backpack is my favourite bag for this Summe time and I will get my hands on their UGLY T-shirt and ROSE FOR THE LADY Skirt.

PRIMARK'S PENCIL PERFECT


Necklace - Primark
T-shirt - River Island
Pencil Skirt - Primark
Shoes - Missguided
Lipstick - MAC

As many of you may know already... I have fallen in love with this £10 white pencil skirt from Primark. It's the perfect fit and I have so many outfit ideas to wear it with through the Spring. I will also be wearing it for my boyfriend's birthday this weekend, so keep an eye out. I also have on my Missguided shoes and a vintage grey band tee. The top has hints of red/orange, so I have on my favourite bright orange MAC lipstick add more colour.



This necklace is also from Primark, another favourite. This item was just £8 and an amazing jewellery statement piece to add to your collection. I recently wore it to a very important occasion, hoping it's credibility in cheap silver, would reward me for my efforts in fashion ;)

I really hope you love the outfit as much as I do, it's had some great attention on instagram! So for more outfit posts and bargain buys, follow my blog and also my instagram here

VOLLEYBALL | 1989


I love my new baseball tee and I'm also introducing my new sliders. I couldn't pick between the white and black sandals and that sounds crazy considering they were just £4 each. I should have easily bought the two but I have so many pairs of black shoes, I decided to stick to this amazing white pair for the same price I pay for my noodles.

WASTED HEROES | WHITE EYE




WASTED HEROES has hit!!!

Glitter and Grimes has teamed up with local fashion/graphic design brand Wasted Heroes. They hooked me up with the most amazing t-shirts and with my chosen designs on the front. I even got to help make these t-shirts and visit their amazing studio in the heart of Liverpool. I will be doing an Exclusive behind the scenes look into the Wasted Heroes brand and how they make all their unique garments.

Here I have on their White Eye T-shirt | Click here to by this product! I knew I wanted to do an all white outfit post, incorporating my new DIY Ripped jeans and new white sandals from Primark. This Wasted Heroes tee is unisex and I love my t-shirts quite baggy, so it's the perfect fit. The quality is really great too, using such soft fabrics.

My jeans are from Primark for just £10 and my sandals were only £8, also from Primark. Many of you loved the pictures on my instagram of these sandals, oh and they also come in black. They have a lovely small bronze buckle on the side too and I felt they looked great with my all white skinny jeans.

If you want to see how I made these ripped jeans myself, go to my previous post: www.glitterandgrimes.com/2014/04/diy-ripped-jeans-glitterandgrimes.html

Check out the Wasted Heroes website here for more amazing t-shirts, sweaters, vests and even accessories. My tee in the picture is ready to buy in all sizes for just £24.99!

DIY RIPPED JEANS | GLITTERANDGRIMES









This is very different type of post to my usual outfit ones. I have decided to show you guys how to make your own ripped jeans at home. I have been debating for ages about getting myself a pair of white ripped jeans this Spring but didn't want to pay high street prices when I know I could be more creative and easily make them myself at home. 

I had been contemplating buying the white ones off ASOS for £32 or the ones in Topshop for £44. Still feeling them prices were both too expensive, I decided to head to Primark in search of their skinny jeans section, see the quality, the prices and if they actually had any in my size. The last few times I had been to Primark, all the white ones had gone but this time I luckily got them in my size. The white ones currently seem to be the most popular colour and I believe that's because everyone has the same idea as me. Primark's white skinny leg jeans are just £10 and they are exactly like the Topshop Leigh jeans, if not softer and more comfier. They are are absolute steal and I think many people are clicking onto the fact that actually buying your jeans from Primark make no difference to way you look, just the weight of your wallet.

I have used these mini pictures and descriptions using the 'PicLab' app (one of my faves) to show you exactly how I made my new ripped jeans. Scissors and a pencil will more than likely be lying around your house somewhere, so these jeans were a massive saving of around £30!!!
