Let It Go!

Recently, I've been able to catch a couple of films, and although I've enjoyed all of them, the one that I have just been obsessed with (along with the rest of the world!) is the latest Disney film, Frozen.
The plotline was not what I expected. It was so much more than your typical Disney movie where the girl meets her Prince Charming and lives happily ever after. The theme of 'love' is strongly streamed  throughut the film, however it is the bond and love that sisters share that is what's really touching about this film. Along with all the hints of humour scattered through it as well, it really is a film for all to enjoy, and that will warm anyone's heart in this cold weather. 
As well as the great story line, the animation is stunning and all the snow and ice scenes just breathtaking.
And then, there's Elsa. Who is sassy-as-heck! And I have completely hair envy over! 
Not only is she beautiful, but she also have a beautiful dress to match, just look at the gown glisten!
The soundtrack to this film is pretty epic as well, and if you've not been living under a rock, you would've heard all the hype around the main song 'Let it Go' 

Don't think there was ever a more inspirational and uplifting song in a cartoon!

Have you seen Frozen yet? What did you think of it?

Hope you're all well,

It's Britney, Bitch!

Britney Jean Spears. The Princess of Pop and the idol of my childhood. She has just started her residency at the Hard Rock in Vegas, and ladies & gentlemen...she's back!
When I was growing up, I used to have her CD on full blast and prance around the living room with an invisible headset-microphone, and pretend I was the pop princess herself.

After a life and career of highs and lows, there is no doubt that she is still the same fierce blonde beauty she was when I was younger.
Seeing photo upon photo of the show on social media, and watching clips of the extravaganza on repeat, all I can think is how much I wish I was there to see it in person!

The set looks amazing, with everything from a faux circus scene to an exotic spinning tree. The dance sequences are on-point and mesmorising, and have Britney working her toned lil' tushy off. And the costumes- just the perfect combination of Britney and Vegas.

Britney has always had amazing costumes on her tours. If you're going to see Britney live, you know you're in for a theatrical treat.

Throughout her carear, her videos have included outfits that have become so iconic even to this day, and that is one of the greatest testaments of a great popstar in my books.
A few of my personal favourites include her sexy and sultry look, complete with snake for 'Slave 4 U'...
...the timeless schoolgirl unifrom and skintight PVC red catsuit from 'Baby One More Time' and 'Opps I Did It Again'...
and of course, this sparkly and seductive masterpiece from 'Toxic'...
When I saw Britney's latest video as well, my 11-year-old self couldn't contain the excitment when I saw she was wearing all this lingerie with gold rings and body-con like pieces. I recognised it immediately and knew it was from Bordelle, who I had the privledge to intern for, and the fact there was some form of slight link between me and the idol from my childhood, was enough to make me jump for joy!
I loved all the attire fro her 'Circus' era, it was so playful and sassy, and now for her Vegas residency, it seems that sassy Britney is ready to play again, and I for one can't wait for the party.

Completely Clueless

When I was about 15, I had a Paul's Boutique bag (yes, one of those) and I absolutely loved that pink purse in all it's plastic goodness. And whenever I used to carry it, hanging off the nook in my arm, my brother used to exclaim, "Oh look! Here comes clueless!"

Being a wannabe punk and a immersed in the world if all things emo before, I found this such a slap in the face, but the more I've watched Clueless during the years as I've grown up, the more I love the outfits in it and feel nostalgic about the fashion.
Everything from the neat headbands and knee-high socks, to a shirt in every colour to match every outfit.
I've been loving all the dreamy and soft texture of feathers and fluff that been making an appearnce in the shops and in my wardrobe recently, and Cher is definitely the poster girl for this.
My favourite outfit throughout the whole film though, is this sheer little number, which when I saw it, I paused immediately and rumamged around my room to see how I could recreate my own version at home. I lvoe everything from the longline, pleated, sheer shirt, worn over a argyle skirt, and topped off with a fluffy, sleeveless jumper.
The wardeobe of the Clueless class has not been ignored though, as relaed, luxury brand Wildfox tapped into the film and created it's own little Clueless clan for it's latest campaign.
Although previously being offended by my brother's on-going joke and comparison with the girls in the film, watching back now, I realise now that that girl Cher speaks a lot of truth!

At this moment in 2014, I'm revising furiously for exams and reading endlessly for essays to hand-in. I'm losing my mind slightly as I've always been one who enjoys the company of others and social contact, but while everyone (including myself!) is stressed with work, it's hard to lie-back and just have fun and natter.

How is your 2014 going? Are you going to be reminiscing and dressing from the 90s anytime soon?

Hope you're all well,

Perky & Pink

I must have been a very good girl this year, as Santa had a this pretty, pink piece all wrapped up and waiting for my underneath the Christmas tree.
coat: River Island, dress: Marks & Spencers, shoes: River Island
This coat, as my brother so lovingly put it, looks like it's straight out of the film Clueless, as much as I act like I'm from it...

I love how smart it is, with it's black faux fur collar, yet is still colourful and fun with it's vibrant and pastel pink shade. The perfect combination!
Kicking off the new year in a smart and sophisticated manner, I wore this Wintery, little white number under it, complete with lace and a black ribbon belt. 
With my hair braided and clipped back, I was ready to meet up with 2014!
I can't wait to keep throwing on this bright little number while the weather's still pretty chilly. I've got to say, I'm quite looking forward Winter to pass over and Spring to come along soon...I miss the warm sunshine!

Hope you're all well,
