Autumn fashion will forever be my favourite purely because of my love of coats and jackets at this time of year. Teddy bear coats have been extremely popular this season and they are available in pretty much everywhere. I thought I would spend a bit this time and invest in a winter coat that I fell in love with instantly when Topshop shared the coat over on their Twitter account.     This coat retails at £79 which is a reasonable price to pay for a lined, faux fur jacket however with the handy use of 20% student discount I got this gorgeous statement piece for around £63. The coat also comes in cream as well as this gorgeous dusky pink.     I have paired this jacket with some bargain items in my wardrobe. Primark has released some high-waisted jeans pretty much identical to the Topshop ones except they… View Post

London Fashion Week has been and gone and I am still obsessing over my favourite street style looks from the week. The array of colours shown throughout the week was incredible and I loved the diversity that every fashion week brings. Cords are in at the moment and I am totally loving this red and hot pink combination. High-waisted flared trousers are my go-to at the moment they can be styled up with boots/heels or dressed down with a pair of trainers of slip on pumps. Red has also been a very popular and on trend colour this season which I am loving but yet to venture into. I love the simplicity of the red polo neck knit top as it can be worn with some many other components.     The trench coat is a classic jacket which will never go out of fashion. It is so versatile and… View Post

Autumn is in full swing and I have picked up so many lovely pieces this year for my autumn/winter wardrobe. Mustard yellow has been a very popular and ‘on-trend’ colour this year and it hasn’t stopped moving through the seasons. I picked up this lattice back, chunky knit mustard yellow jumper from Newlook. This jumper comes in 5 different colours and I have to say I want it in every single one! The lattice back, ribbed knit jumper is only £19.99 which is a very reasonable price for a winter knit jumper. I love it!     Another item I picked up from Newlook this year is this tan suedette a-line skirt and it screams Autumn. This skirt is perfect for wearing with a chunky knit jumper or a top and jacket. It can be worn in so many way and is definitely a staple item for everyone’s autumnal wardrobe.… View Post

Yellow is the hottest colour going right now and I absolutely love it! I recently had a trip to London where I purchased a gorgeous yellow cross body bag from Stradivarius which I am totally in love with as it’s a simple and cute way of adding a touch of colour to every outfit. I also purchased this sweatshirt and faux leather skirt from Missguided which are to die for. This cropped sweatshirt is perfect as it’s so cosy to wear but looks super stylish with this skirt. I’m also so in love with this skirt which will only cost you £10 if you order it using my name ‘Alex Rooke’ at checkout as you can get £5 off your order by entering my name now on the Missguided website.   The bag is a typical mustard yellow however the skirt is a lot brighter and more orange in certain… View Post

A couple of weeks ago I was browsing on Depop when I came across my dream Zara trousers, they were out of stock on the website and I was not prepared to pay over £60 (which was the re-sale value) either. I was heartbroken. But initiative kicked in and had a little search on the interweb and found these dupes on EBay for £18.99. I was pleasantly surprised on the amount of dupes there actually was on there. With anything on EBay I like to check out that the company is actually legitimate but it had plenty of good reviews and 3 days delivery was included in the price with 30 days return policy so I thought it was worth a shot.  Admittedly I was still quite disheartened as I wasn’t sure whether they were going to be like the original Zara trousers that I had fallen in love with… View Post
