Totally DISTRESSED Out!

Hey Loves!

Hope you all are full of love and happiness in abundance… and then some! How are you? How are things? Let me know what’s good with ya! 🙂

So, let’s be honest! The ‘distressed’ look (clothes with holes, rips, and bleach as a starter) has been around forever. I know dear old Kanye West likes to think he is the inventor of all things but we know better! The idea of rocking worn out clothes or ones that look like they have been in a fight, with a bear, is not a new concept for real. That is the thing with ‘trends’ they just keep on coming back round and round! My 80’s babies know what I mean. If FAME (I wanna live forever) was life, then you had off the shoulder shirts and leggings with holes and the whole shebang. I love the revival of it all but I don’t love the extortionate prices some stores are charging to get the look. Why pay when you can do it yourself.

What is even better is that when you distress your own clothes you can:

  • create your own unique pieces
  • upstyle (see what I did there) some of those items in your wardrobe that have not seen the light of day for a while
  • you DO NOT need to be a seamstress…I am no professional!
  • save some money

This look is for anyone and there is no age limit on fashion as I say. I am not sure my Daddy would approve of me walking around with holes in my leggings! So raid your closet, your Daddy’s, Momma’s, Boyfriend, Girlfriend or WHOEVER! It is time to get totally distressed out! Below I have used 5 pieces from my wardrobe that I no longer wear. I have not taken the time to be neat or precise and have only used scissors or my hands! So let’s get ripping!!!!!

Sorry the colour is slightly off due to the lighting and flash.

Leggings!

Either fold in half or down the middle invisible seam line and then cut lines as wide as you want. I skipped the knee on one pair and only did my calf and thigh area and then went all the way down on the other! Simples!

Sweater!

The cold shoulder is the rage so just cut around the collar all the way to the back tag so you can have the choker effect which is also big in the game right now. Two looks in one! Boom! Boom! Shake! Shake the room!

You can also take an old hoodie and just cut the hood off for the ultimate nod to the 80’s style icons…think Flashdance (if you don’t know these movies…google them, please)!

T-Shirts!

Whether you want small detail or big in your face style, this is what you make it. Think about adding a gorgeous bralette that will peek through for added effect!

 

Beauty Holder Tips!

  • Don’t try to be too precise with cutting lines. It is no fun that way and will drive you crazy.
  • Take it up a notch and add lace, ribbons and bleach/ dye it up if you have the time
  • Cut or rip where you want. You do not have to imitate anyone else. This is all about your style
  • ROCK it with confidence and PRIDE. This is your handy work.  You will probably get asked where did you get your top from and enjoy letting everyone know it is an original, darling!
  • Now this is not going to be for everyone but it is fashion and therefore it is fun! Well to me it is!

Hope you enjoyed this post! I may make a video for my channel on how I jazz up some of my other pieces, so make sure you’re subscribed. There will be a new video this weekend so stay tuned. Link below!

My Favourite Looks of 2015!

Hey Loves!

I know we are full swing into 2016 and Fashion Week in NYC but I wanted to take a little look back and appreciate some of my favourite looks of 2015!

If you are a regular to my blog then you know that 2015 was a big year for me with regards to fitness and health. I have always enjoyed fashion but comfort was the overriding factor in the early stages when I was a lot less confident. Jeans and sweaters were my wardrobe staples. Can you spot when I started to become more adventurous?

Some of the outfits have been featured in #CopMyCloset and for those that haven’t if you’re interested in anything I am rocking, get in touch!

Hope you enjoyed a little look back of my non-apologetic fashion choices of last year! I’m on a whole new level in 2016!

Don’t forget you can find all my social links in the contact me section at the top of the page!

#CopMyCloset | Birthday Chic (for cheap)! £$€

Hey Everyone!

Hope this blog meets you all in the best of health and happiness. I know it’s been a while. Got a couple of posts out this week to hopefully make up for it!

My #CopMyCloset posts have been getting a great response. Thank you! For reading them, for sharing them and even more so just for taking the time to embrace this feature.

I am still currently on a lifestyle change working on my fitness and much more. Some of that struggle means having to get clothes that fit. That can be expensive and I have some tips on that in a future blog! It seems like I am always out celebrating a birthday and this outfit is from another such happy occasion. This was on a budget though and I was pretty pleased with my finds!

I asked earlier on my Facebook page if anyone could guess the cost of this look (without the shoes). It was under £20 and the breakdown below.

                                           full length DM  Lizzy and DM

BodySuit: PrettyLittleThing £7 | Wide Leg Striped Pants: Primark £7 | Shoes: River Island (about 8 years old) £45 approx | Lace Bralet: Boux Avenue £26

Both the PLT and Primark items were sale bargains… LOVE! The bodysuits come up big so I would suggest getting a smaller size than your normal. It is a wrap bodysuit with no clasps or hooks so be mindful of this when ordering. Shucks, be mindful when wearing as those toilet breaks are no joke! It also is very revealing in the front so I chose a bralet as opposed to just a bra for the right amount of sexy that I could manage (covers eyes).  I purchased this when I was a fuller size. Due to the wide leg of the pant you may want to try smaller. There is a slight stretch but this is very slight and Primark trousers are known to run smaller.

Happy Birthday to the beautiful Elizabeth! We hope you enjoyed your birthday surprise. It was a great night and loads of fun. Shouts to Lils, Ray Ray Milz, Delrose and Amanda! What happens in Camden… stays there!

I hope you enjoyed this post. I’m sorry they are few and far between but I am working on getting back to regular posting soon!

Have a lovely week loves!

Besos 💋
