28.8.14 JERSEY STYLING


I have already shown you guys this amazing jersey skirt from Primark with the attached fake sleeves. This is definitely the cheapest on the high street for just £9. It also comes in black. As the sun is still out and we are due some sunny spells still (I sound like a weather reporter) I thought I would still with the 'legs out' image and style this amazing versatile skirt with a long sleeved black crop and my old converse. 

I had totally trashed these trainers last year and they have gone all strange looking and I had to finally give in a put them in the washing machine.. well I didn't actually gave. Jack was sick of looking at them in the hall way and thought it was time he just put them in for me. 

Thank god he did... I haven't had them off since, it as though we never parted.

27.8.14 ALL BLACK WITH A HINT OF BLUE


Hi Everyone! I haven't posted an outfit post in awhile, so here it is! I'm also back with my outdoor shoots, this seems a stupid time of year to start them again as we approach Autumn, but I wanted more colour to my blog and instagram and missed having Jack with me being my little photographer and part of it all. It's also a great feeling when you take some really great pictures and my Canon was being neglected.

This particular outfit is inspired by the fast transition from Summer to Autumn/Winter elements. Even though the sun is still here to play, I wanted to show you guys how to slowly start transitioning into an Autumn inspired wardrobe and how to do it with effortless style. My two top tips include 1. Leather and 2. Light Cover-ups (The 2 L's) 

I style have on a very popular Summer stable piece, a black lace bralet, with some leather skinny trousers, a light weight black silk cover up jacket and then some statement blue boots to turn a whole black ensemble around.

14.8.14 5K INTSA | THANK YOU







Just want to say a big thank you to everyone who follows me on my instagram account over on instagram.com/glitterandgrimes

I reached 5k last week and even though that might not seem much to some people in the world of instagram, it means such a lot to me and the reason I will continue to blog and inspire my followers fashion, what they wear and what they buy.

Thanks :)

HEDONIA GIRL






The guys over at Hedonia let me pick from their amazing collection online. I chose their Scarlett Ivory dress from their 'Evening Dresses' feature. 

I chose this particular dress mainly because I loved the split zip detail at the front and also the embroidered fabric. I had been in search of the perfect ivory dress that I can style for both the day and night.

Today I have styled the dress for day time use, but it can also be worn as the perfect evening garment. As I don't tend to go out much at night, I play down all my nice dresses for a stylishly effortless look during the day time. I have on my trusted Fedora hat, some black buckled boots, a small belt round my waist, which transforms the dress from the perfect evening ensemble, to a day time hit.

Then lastly I have completed the look with my most recent purchase from Primark, a festival inspired, beaded backpack.

11.8.14 HOUSE OF JAM | CHECK MATE












House of Jam were kind enough to send me an awesome package including this oversized checked shirt dress and also some amazing blue vintage high waisted trousers, which many of you will have seen flooding my instagram pages over the last month. 

I loved both these pieces and they were just amazing quality too. I used to be obsessed with vintage clothes and raiding my local vintage shops for bargain finds became a regular occurance. So when online vintage stores wish to collaborate with Glitter and Grimes, is a great privilege, as I really appreciate great quality vintage garments. 

I have styled this oversized checked shirt with my faithful fedora hat from H&M, Primark cut out boots and a simple plaited belt round the middle nipping it in at the waist.
