Kendall Jenner: Can we take her seriously?

Kendall has been trying to get herself into High Fashion for a few years and finally got her big break in the Gucci Campaign. But is her face way too recognisable to be taken seriously in the fashion industry? Some people may say so as her association with the "Kardashian Clan" brings down her reputation massively, even if the outrageous antics aren't hers. The reality show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" follows their EVERY MOVE and share everything from their family feuds to some of their most private moments. Being on a reality show practically means you are going to be hate by 70% of the female population especially the younger audience, which makes companies much less keen to use her in their campaigns. 

Of recent, her potential love life has been in the most spotlight, being linked to the likes of teen hearthrobs, Harry Styles, Justin Bieber and Ashton Irwin, causing a little bit of a stir. I'll give her credit though,she is absolutely stunning and does have an amazing face for fashion as she knows how to take a stunning photo. She has said before in countless interviews that she tries to shy away from her reality TV show and just focus on her career, she wants to be known and 'Kendall Jenner: The Model' rather than 'Kendall Jenner: The sister of the girl that makes millions for no privacy'. I must say it will pretty hard to shake off the latter name but maybe the fashion industry should give her a try. She will not the next Cara Delevinge but surely she create waves in the business. 

                         What do you think? Do you take her seriously as a model?

Hi guys I know I've been lacking in a lot of content for a few months now. 

School got on top of me and I kind of had to aside my baby to study. HOWEVER, I'M BACK NOW! And ready for action. I feel like as of I might make a few changes as to the content I post and I may be adding some new things which I haven't decided on yet. I hope everyone and anyone that views this blog would like to join me on a journey. A journey of self discovery? A journey to maturity? A journey to better shoes? I have no idea. But all I know is that I've started this journey and I want everyone to join me on it. 

I want to begin to start making my stamp on the world. Right now. 

                                                              Love you guys. Z.x

Wish List: Has It Really Come To That Time Of Year?

I haven't written for a while because I have been so busy but I'm back with my MASSIVE wish list this week! I'm super excited as I plan on shopping for all (well at least as far as my pay check can get me) these items for the oncoming winter months and I just had to share them! 

I'm starting off with this amazing leather and cotton long line biker jacket from none other than As much as I have expressed my slight love ( maybe obsession I don't know), this is an ABSOLUTE MUST and it is actually in very low stock right now and I am hanging on PRAYING that 1 jacket will be there waiting for me like a little baby should. (I'm already calling it my baby and it's not even mine yet, somebody help me). 

I love this jacket because it is rock chic with a sophisticated vibe to it, which means I can use this jacket to dress up but also dress down if I'm in very formal wear which I think is perfect. It's something I could wear with anything which is great as it would be one less thing to worry about when deciding what to wear I'm the morning! Thank God it is navy blue, I get to steer away from the typical black theme which we all seem to fall into when it comes to the colder months, no matter how hard we try, it just happens. It is now £57.00 instead of £95.00, so it now ticks all the boxes because who can really resist a sale item? Definately not me that's for sure. Ŷ

ASOS provides me with the second and third thing on my wish list right now: TIGHTS! If I'm being very honest I used to think that tights were just a way to keep warm so I never thought of them as anything major. Now  have realised that they can be used as art on  your legs! Why not?! You are going to be covering those perfect set of legs and you have to draw attention to them somehow!You keeping warm AND showing off a bit of individuality and you can always find tights for a bargain! These are £8 each and one has a leopard print which I have a slight obsession with right now. Then there is the New York skyline tights are perfect because I am IN LOVE with New York, and I think I'm going to be stocking up on a lot of these and so should all of you! Do you have a favorite pair of tights right now? Have you bought your statement jacket for this winter? 

Style yourself, believe in yourself and love yourself. Z.x

It consumes all my time and all my money but I regret NOTHING! Whenever I've had those down days, I would get onto this website and I would feel so much better, *cough* shopaholic in the making *cough*. It doesn't help that there is new arrivals practically everyday so I've always got something new to admire, but I just can't help it! Although a lot of their clothing is not very purse friendly, I still can't help but put a couple of items on my basket. The apparel is all about taking a classic piece and messing it up without ruining the main principle of the item and I LOVE it! I've got a thing for taking a normal outfit and making it different and less mainstream, so when I discovered ASOS, it was like my world had finally come together. It has more of a grungy feel to it which I've only just begun trying out which I have been loving! Did I mention the ASOS Marketplace?! You can get one of a kind pieces for a BARGAIN! If you haven't been on there you should, its INSANE the clothes people have lying around in their homes! 

So of course as my little tradition I have going right now, I have made a little outfit! The difference today is that today every item here is all form one source and that it is of course ASOS! It is a 'night out with the girls' look with my favorite two things right now: beanies and triangles! My favorites are the beautiful neon yellow heels and the triangle earrings because 1)neon brights are my favorite brights and 2) they are both in triangular shapes (did I mention I like triangles?) 

Message today? Nothing that I haven't said before but expect me to be saying this a lot. Don't be afraid to step out of the box! If you shop in the right places and you just set your mind to it, you will find and build the confidence to! And anyway, who wants to be mainstream anymore? 

What are your favorite piece/s from the outfit? Do you shop at ASOS? If you don't, are you going to now? Because I believe you should! 

WARNING: I take no responsibility for your new addiction ;)

Can I be Forever 21 please?


Forever 21. I mean who doesn't want be forever 21? (Actually I can't say anything because I'm not even 20 yet, but let's just go with it). Forever 21 has become one of my all time favourite retailers in a VERY short space of time. It is a relatively new shop, taking the world by storm with its modern yet unique style pieces. There is not a single person who does not know Forever 21 and is loved by fashionistas everywhere, even if they don't particularly wear their clothing. The reason why everyone loves Forever 21 so much is because while the clothing can be very simple and basic, they aren't scared to bring styles straight from the catwalk and teach everyone how to wear it, even the less confident. It is where I shopped first when I finally decided to break out and have my own and it's great because it makes simple fashion trends a little different and I love that. 


This is my favourite new arrival at the moment, a Leopard print faux fur beanie! (£7.99 at the moment) 
I love it because a lot of people have taken to wearing beanies but they all the same mainly black with the words either 'obey' or 'love' and I find those so basic! So why not stand out wearing all black with a cute little leopard beanie on top, maybe a pleated skirt with a leather jack pet or a varsity jacket! Add a bit of edge and it is a great attention grabber! 

What would you wear this with? Do you shop in Forever 21? What's your favourite new arrival?

Celebrity Style Day 6: Jennifer Lawrence

'May the odds be in your favor' 

Jennifer Lawrence, famously known for her roles in Silver Lining and the Hunger Games Trilogy, she is everywhere at the moment.  You would never see her in the papers for doing bad 'diva-ish' things but more for how much of a great role model she is. Jennifer never takes advantage of her riches and she has always kept herself grounded. If you saw her walking past you in the street, you probably wouldn't  recognize her. THAT is just how simplistic she is. You wouldn't necessarily find her in the next Mulberry creation but in New Look and Topshop pieces (that she isn't afraid to say she found on sale). She never dresses up unless she HAS to and I think that is why she is so loved. Lots of celebrities say they are down to earth, but Jennifer doesn't have to say it,she just is. Her style is so easily copy-able and its a great place to start if you are looking for a more subtle style. She loves wearing the monochrome trend with maybe a splash of color and ALWAYS a pair of heels, and below is my take on her style and how I would would wear it.  

Dress - Topshop, Jacket - H&M , Heels -, Socks - Topshop, Bangles - Accessorize, Chain - Primark, Ring - and Earrings -

I love this outfit because it could be dressy, but it could also be quite casual as the heels aren't very high and the denim jacket adds a bit of edge. The two finger ring is my favorite piece as they are very trendy right now and the diamante bow is very blingy and girly which describes me perfectly. 

'Even when I was a teenager, I never considered failure.' 

Jennifer has so much confidence in herself which is so inspiring, and I leaving you with a short message today. You should always just believe in yourself. I say this quite a lot but it is true. If you can dream about what you want, then it must be reachable. Take all those risks and chances, What have you got to lose?

Celebrity Style Day 5: Iggy Azalea

'Let's work'

I have 2 more days left of my Celebrity Style Series and day 5 is inspired by the gorgeous Amethyst Amelia Kelly. Or as you are most likely to know her, Iggy Azalea. She is someone that I can never stop staring at because she has seriously beautiful face, and don't even get me started on her body. She has a perfect figure and whatever she wears just looks so glamorous! Though I should add she's a Wilhelmina Model. Makes sense? Of course it does. She definitely dresses like a model considering that she is a rapper, originally from Australia but now based in the US. She is a versatile dresser as she doesn't have a particular kind of style, I think she's one of those people who picks up and wears something if its pretty, which can have its advantages and disadvantages. Advantage: You could wear practically wear anything and everything; Disadvantage: THERE IS SO MUCH TO CHOOSE FROM H O W DO YOU PICK WHAT TO WEAR?! However, she has modern take on style, so her style isn't something you haven't seen before, but what makes her stand out is her iconic platinum blonde (very long) hair. I have never been a hair and makeup person but if it wasn't for her hair and her stand out facial features she wouldn't be very memorable. 

(First Outfit) Jacket from House Of Fraser, top from, jeans from John Lewis, Blazer heels from Harrods, Bag from H&M, Earrings from EBay. (Second Outfit) Pinafore from, top from Selfridges, Shoes from Debenhams, Socks from Forever 21, Bag from EBay, Earrings and Necklace set from

I found trying to find an outfit for Iggy, the hardest so far because she changes up her style quite a lot so I went for a casual but a little dressy look because it is the only way you can sum up the way she dresses. I picked a pinafore because she is quite girly and she would probably wear with a pair of dressy heels, but I dressed it down a little by adding a pair of socks and a backpack so it would be easily transitional from an afternoon shopping and a lunch date, to evening wear by just changing socks and the bag. By far, my favorite item is the tartan jeans, tartan is completely taking over for the Autumn/Winter season trends (I will do a post on how to dress with Tartan really soon; so watch this space!). Iggy is also today my inspiration for the message of the day. She has always said she wants to take the way society thinks she should be and turn it upside down. I think she has kept to that as you wouldn't have expected her to be rapper because stereo typically she would be a bubblegum pop singer with pig tails and the most famous boyfriend on the planet. So what i'm saying to you today is don't fit into your stereo type. Try to stand out. Just because you like to wear the color black does not make you a goth. Being pale faced with blue eyes does not mean you have to be a girly girl. Be who you want to be. Step out of your stereo type otherwise you will get stuck with it and you know that's not really you. If you want to start being who you want to be, there is no better time than NOW. Anyway, weirder people are better people!

What's your favorite item from the inspiration outfits? What's your stereotype? Are you anything like your stereotype? I know I'm definitely not like mine!  What do you/will you do to step out of your stereotype?
