"In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different".. Coco Chanel. I shall live and die by this quote. Be who you want to be, not who someone wants you to be, it honestly is the difference between being happy and not. I aim to blog about fashion and all that surrounds it.

Hand me the fringing, flares and bad ass chic.. This girl is BACK!

For anyone that know's me will know life is good right now. For a multitude of reason's which I shall restrain myself from rambling on about for the next few minutes of writing this.

This is time to continue in a way that I feel is finally right to be back here and writing. I didn't want to be blogging half heartedly and using this as an emotional crutch for the last few months, hence the absence. But life is good......

70s. This is it. I think I have finally found my calling in my fashion life. Like, I literally should have been born 50 years ago to have made optimum use of round two of this proper sassy decade. Okay, that sounds very lusty BUT have you SEEEEN some of whats going on right now?!


The cross over of textures, print and cuts is just - ughhh - to die for. There is literally something to suit everyone with the sort of things you are seeing on the high street at the moment.

Key obsessions:
§ Fringing
§ Flares
§ Lace up knee highs

I'm pretty sure I'll be sharing some of my pieces with you very soon if you haven't already seen bits on my insta! (bpdowdell)

Let's leave the interior decor well alone and not look back that far...

Right, let's do this.

Merry Christmas/Happy New Year/ Sorry..

All of the above are needing to be said due to my lack of attention and commitment over the last few months.  I have one excuse if you'll take it - leaving Uni messed with my procrastination and routine shopping/lusting/blogging. Sorry.

It's so easy to sit down and tap away, I aim to come back and somehow up the blog entries again 'cos I do miss ya's/speaking to myself! 

So.. Yeah, Uni's done with.. Last time I wrote was GFW I believe. I got nominated in the final 10 for the photographic award - obviously didn't win, got a few interviews before leaving Uni, got an offer the last day at Northbrook. Accepted. Achieved a 2.1 in my course (kinda bummed out a bit). I've officially graduated and since July I have been a Visual Merchandiser for Next, working independently in my 'own' store - Lakeside, Thurrock.

Along with all of that, I've shopped what feels like a thousand more items, chopped all my hair off, reconnected with old friends, moved back home and generally plodding along in a good direction. So, it only seems fitting that I return to the blog-esphere too! So, if you'll have me. I. Am. Back.


 I'll be back😉

 promise 😘
