Hello. Its freezing. Pass me the fur.

Hey Lovelies

 

 

I am writing this from the train up from London so Ill keep it quick- one because the wifi is awful and my personal hotspot is coming and going 2. Yesterday I bought a pack of stick on nails- they are the HOUSE OF HOLLAND nails – absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE them but I cannot type. (May as well take this opportunity to thank Paul for washing my hair this morning and helping me blow my nose haha).

 

Ok so lots of you asked me about my jacket- I got it in ZARA, Oxford street. How amazing is the colour- its a very soft pale pink and is such a good piece to invest in this Winter because it will go with so much. Its £99.99- I can’t find it anywhere online but I expect it’ll be available to buy online soon. Oh also I notice the jacket only comes in a S/M. Im an 8 and bought the Small. In the mean time I am going to note down below the code on ticket in case you can preorder it in store.

 

above barcode it is : 8190/928/620

My skinny fit joggers are on sale in store for £12.99  I also bought them in an amazing dark green colour. I absolutely love these ones because they are smart looking and perfect for everyday wear with a denim jacket, leather, or as I have styled them with a faux fur coat. They could also be worn with a heel dressed up for a dinner date. Joggies and heel combos are so underrated.

 

Kicks are converse-everyone has to own a pair of high top black converse. They literally go with almost everything and can be thrown in washing machine and come out as good as new. I got mine in OFFICE.

 

Bobble hat is £7.99 in ZARA – look out for an amazing grey one also. Click HERE to check it out.

 

T-shirt new in ZARA £9.99

 

CHANEL  handbag I bought in Selfridges back in February, I was there yesterday and they had an identical one to mine except smaller in size.

Sunglasses are from @Laureensbitsandbobs – check them out they have some amazing clothing and accessories at really affordable prices.

Tulle Dress. Yes Please.

Hey Guys!!!

 

How are you? As promised I am blogging last weeks outfit I wore last Thursday to the fabulous blogger event thanks to INTU Braehead showcasing all of the up and coming A/W trends.

Ok so the tulle dress a lot of you have been asking about is from Bershka and costs £15.99!!! AMAZING statement piece to add to your wardrobe! Possibly one of my favorite buys this year to be honest and super affordable. Ive worn it here with denims and a white £2 Primark crop top for a trendy yet relaxed day time look.  Alternatively, it would also look amazing with just a leotard dress under it or a tight spaghetti strap vest dress (you get the long line vests in Primark for £3), teamed with a waist belt, heels and clutch bag for such a funky yet elegant evening look. NOTE: waist belts are making a massive comeback and I will show you how I love them styled in my next blog post.

 

The jacket is ACNE-  I literally got mine in Selfridges Xmas sale a couple years ago. Yes ACNE is super expensive however if you are a leather jacket person then you are paying for the best.  Its never lost a stud, the zips are sturdy, and the leather is still in immaculate condition after several wears so it is a lifetime investment (well, so I told my mum with a horrified expression on her face when I was buying it).

Statement blouse & My New IT Bag

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Hey Lovelies!

 

Hope your having a great week!! All the better knowing its Friday tomorrow (AND I’m going to cyprus on saturday- don’t hate me I’m sorry! ha!).  Im very excited to blog some of my new favourite pieces over there in the sunshine but for now I couldn’t not show you my recent much loved purchase. I got this incredible blouse from H&M last week for £10!!! No its not on sale…it’s literally a statement blouse for £10!

ps.  They only had size 12 and up left at the time so I took the 12 and it was fine. I find the sizing in H&M is very small made so don’t fear about going up as size or 2 if I’m being honest.

I absolutely love the trumpet shaped sleeves and this shirt is timeless, its one of these pieces you can keep in your wardrobe and bring out ten years from now, throw on with a pair of denims or leather skirt and it’ll still look on trend and chic. I love a good waistcoat and picked this up for £4 in H&M sale. Velvet is going to be HUGE this A/W so it was definitely a bargain find!!

What do you think of the new satchel collection from VVA?  Safe to say I’m rather in love with my new IT  bag with everything from the bottle green color, to the satchel style, large tassel detail at the front, and the chain handle with the option to change to the leather handle it also comes with. If you have never seen a VVA handbag before the lining is as beautiful as the exterior and pink in colour. It is also a very versatile handbag that allows you to remove the front tassel pouch from the bag and use it as a clutch perhaps for evening or a formal dinner when you don’t want to be humphing about your large day bag. So ideal for ladies who are always on the go that don’t want to carry around spare bags with them.

 

 

Blouse H&M

Boots- unfortunately mine sold out from OFFICE shoes, I found a similar style from NEW LOOK

LEVIS denims (vintage shops usually always have fab denim jeans- its just a case of rummaging through the right rail. Alternatively you can always find a pair of a similar style to what I have on from good old EBAY!)

Satchel-  VVA

Glasses are from an instrgram page called @thespoiledbitchclub definitely worth checking out they have loads of amazing reasonable shades.

Comic Print Denim

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Hey Hey!!

 

How are you all? I am sad. I am exactly a week home from Dubai and seriously missing the sunshine, good food and getting to act like a 5 years old asking the driver of the jeep safari to go faster as we drive over the bumps.  I have shot a few blogs recently but I lost my camera with all the images on it.  ANYWAY,  now that I have found it *panic over* I will be uploading all of my new fav purchases and can get back to blogging.

 

Im not sure about you but Im literally not ready to put away my Summer wardrobe yet, I keep thinking of ways to layer it or style it in a way in which I can get longer use out of it. Don’t get me wrong, I am excited for the AW wardrobe but just not quite so soon.  I feel like I always go wild at the start of Summer buying loads of “Summery” garments forgetting I don’t live in the Carribean but in fact one of the rainiest countries in Europe (if not rainiest?!)

 

My favorite trend this Summer which has been HUGE is strappy tops and dresses with a tshirt under it. Its been everywhere!! It not only dresses the outfit down but makes it look more quirky and understated.

 

So I bought this cute little playsuit from Mango and styled in with a cute slogan T underneath. MANGO has undoubtedly been one of my favorites shops this Summer!!! So on trend and so affordable.

THIS JACKET THOUGH?! Girls….seriously!! How sick is this jacket?! I love the comic print on the back, the shade of denim and the fact it is slightly oversized looking. It will look amazing in Winter with ripped black denims, ankle boots and a colorful knit underneath. For £50 it is an amazing statement piece to add to your wardrobe!

 

SO many of you have asked me about my choker. It is literaly a dog collar I got from the LV store in edinburgh. I am apparently a medium sized dog haha… just in case you were wondering about sizing.

 

I was in Dubai so in Typical Shak fashion I threw it on with my RIRI sliders. This would also look super cute with high top converse or even a wedge if your going out for lunch with the girls.

 

Shop this look;

 

Denim Jacket

Mango Jumpsuit

Mango T *couldnt find the exact same one as me but they have loads of super cute slogan tees that would go perfect underneath*

RIRI sliders  *Offfice shoes have been stocking them. I got mine on Puma website but for certain colors *especially the pink*  you really have to keep your eyes peeled for the relaunch of new stock. (so OFFICE, PUMA website and ASOS stock them*) . If you are not looking to spend so much then check out these identical pink sliders on MISSGUIDED for only £20!!

Shop similar style Celine bags

LV choker

Shades are old Ray Bans. For amazing shades check out the @thespoiltbitchclub on instagram.

My loop bracelet- unfortunately I can’t find online but was bought instore from Mango.

 

Have a great weekend!!!

Who wears white on a Rainy Day? ME apparently.

rsz_sjh_6337

Hey Guys!!

 

Hope you’ve all had a great week!!! I can’t believe it is August already.  Anyone else feel like Summer is flying in so fast? (wow now I sound like your 70 year old gran). Moving on, thought I would drop by to blog my all white outfit I posted on my instagram recently. Remember not all outfits I post on “insta” I blog, but almost every time I will tag the company/shop its from. Or if you get stuck just message me.

Please excuse the messy drowned rat hair I seem to sporting in all of these pics. Might I add the sun was shining through my bedroom window as I picked this outfit that day. Needless to say by the time I actually arrived in Glasgow city centre it was pouring. Gotta love that unpredictable Scottish weather…NOT!

I broke up this white day time look with black accessories to create what appears to be a somewhat monochrome look. Like I’ve said in previous blogs, I’m not an overly ‘matchy matchy’ person so I like to add in a little touch of colour when I can.

I bought my blouse in the Zara sale so doubt it is still available to buy. However, many of you girls have one of those low scoop blouses in the wardrobe, this style of drape top has been so popular this year- I remember wearing a nude one with a similar black lace bra at Crimbo time. I have tagged a similar style of top at bottom of page to create this look.

The jeans are All Saints and I actually added the rips in myself with a pair of scissors and cut the hem off the bottom to create a ragged edge. I have been doing this a lot with my jeans recently.

The bandana is so popular just now, Its such a cute little investment piece and loads of shops are selling different colors. If you don’t fancy wearing it in your hair or around your neck as I have done then even just tie it to a strap on your handbag like a bag accessory. Goodbye Pom Poms- HELLO bandanas.

***(Typical Shak tip- A lot of my drape blouses I wear back to front. You may have noticed I absolutely love backless tops/dresses so try turning your top around and create a backless blouse instead. Perhaps throw on a long chain necklace and wear it down your back)

 

Jeans; All Saints

Boots; Mine are no longer on website but Mango have a nicer really similar pair on MANGO website

Bag; CHANEL

Bandana; Primark (Claires Accessories sell loads of nice colours) or alternatively check this one out on ASOS

Blouse; similar style from  BOOHOO or PLT

Bralet; HNM

Glasses; Chanel , Selfridges (if you are looking for cool shades for a fraction of the price check out my ones I posted on instagram from @Laureensbitsandbobs or @Jewelboutique)

Chain necklace; ROX, Argyle Arcade

Its Not Always Got To Be Fancy.

OHHHH how I’ve missed you all *bring it in, bring it in*

 

Ill make this a quickie as its Fri-YAYYYY and I don’t want to keep you all from your usual Friday festivities *pass the cocktails*.

 

So has anyone else had a little fall out with ZARA for literally bleeding their wallets dry during the current Summer Sale?…Didnt think it was just me.  So I touched up on metallics in my last BLOG and where to find some really sick metallic wide leg trousers I found in American Apparel. Well, safe to say my metallic love expanded when I found this little pleated gold number hanging on the sale rail with my name on it. For just £12.99 I knew it was a must have. YES it is fancy, chic and quite a statement garment, and yes, you probably would initially pair it with a pair of strappy sandals and a crop top on a night out but in Typical Shak fashion I transformed it into a casual/funky day time look.

I opted for my Alexander Wang ankle boots, a Metallica band tee and denim jacket. A black leather jacket would go great with a light coloured tee or white shirt underneath also but I prefer denim as it has a more daytime casual vibe.

 

Skirt- ZARA

Boots- shop similar styles HERE

jacket- MISSGUIDED (comes in white)

hat- MANGO (its on sale for £10- LOVE)

Bag- Mini Celine

Glasses- (@Jewellboutique on instagram)

Band Tees- okay so I got mine on vintage rail in Topshop but you’ll find loads on ebay. Also I found this fab website that are really reasonable that sell super cool ones called GRINDSTORE.

 

Have an amazing weekend!!!

Shak is Back- 3 Fav Summer Styles.

rsz_1icee

Hey Guys…oh how I’ve missed you all.

 

Im so sorry I haven’t written a blog since my last double denim post, I have been on holiday. Having arrived home from Florida on the Thursday I had one day to pack until my next adventure on the Friday to London and then onto Milan for a few days. So I am finally now just getting the opportunity sit down at my laptop and fill all of you lovely people in about my travels.

I must admit I dont really have much to blog in terms of clothing in Florida as 4 out of 7 of my days consisted of profusely  sweating my socks off around theme parks (lovely vision Shak thanks for that) and the other days catching up with my lovely family who live over there were spent wearing really loose fit light weight garments.  The theme parks are incredible- definitely check out Sea World it gets the least amount of hype but the roller coasters and penguins are a definite ‘can’t miss’!!

That was my first time there and I can’t stress enough if you are going this summer- avoid all items heavy or denim. I found myself in trainers, vests and TOPSHOP runner shorts most of the trip. Not to mention the shopping outlets are heavenly so as much room in the case as possible will help a lot! Oh and buy an umbrella- I thought we had it bad here in Scotland with the rain, over there when it pours it POURS! So don’t even think about straightening your hair in the mornings- pre-mentally accept you will not so much have a bad hair day but more of a bad hair week. Ha!

 

FYI- Any outfit posts I have worn in the evenings for example like my cute backless shirt or swimwear looks etc can be found on my instagram account and I always tag the company I got them from so you know exactly where to find them if you wish to purchase. I can’t blog every look but I like to post my ‘OOTD’ styles every other day on my social media account. (‘OOTD’ by the way stands for outfit of the day, its one of these cringe things us bloggers like to use and hashtag for all those who may not know the phrase) @emilyshak is my instagram account.

 

Soooo… whats your thoughts on metallic clothing? Its something I feel people find a bit risky or perhaps something they’d only wanna wear to a party. Well, I purchased these insane gold metallic loose fit trousers from American Apparel in Florida and styled them in a quirky day time look/street style. Fear not they are available to purchase- I have linked them below to buy and they are on sale for £13!!!!!! Don’t say I’m not good to you…

So I teamed these statement trousers with a classic white GUCCI bomber jacket and Puma trainers from OFFICE SHOES and LV backpack. It was a super comfy, almost sporty chic meets glam kinda style and I thought it went together really well. Of course, these trousers can also be worn with a leotard and heel for a party or occasion but I think its important to always remember that outfits can be dressed down and still look cool. A strappy going out dress can be thrown on with a denim shirt over it and pair of converse for a stylish summer day time look.

These trousers are on sale for £13  from American Apparel (I actually bought all 3 colours as they are a total bargain)

If they are a bit too out there for you but you want a similar style (click HERE) I came across these amazing more neutral gold metallic wide leg trousers on BOOHOO sale for £15.

 

My next fav outfit a lot of you asked about was my OOTD that I wore to the Capital Summertime Ball. I found these silky culottes in H&M last month for £40 and fell in love…so much so I ended up changing my top and wearing them a couple days later in Milan. My bralet and ripped denim jacket made for the perfect “festival inspired” look along with my OFFICE sandals I pulled out the cupboard from last year and LV bumbag. Luckily I have sourced an identical pair of sandals from OFFICE.

Oh and my diamond bindi (£1)  I tried so hard to rock along with my straw hat (£5) and sunglasses (£1) were from Primark. That is some seriously cool bargain accessorising for £7 if I may say so myself. This takes me onto my final look from Milan…

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

chanel(dress- old BOOHOO slip dress- they have  similar on styles on ASOS, Converse kicks from OFFICE, £5 Primark hat)

SO many of you commented on my hat. It is NOT a Chanel hat!! I bought the brooch in Selfridges Chanel store, Manchester, 2 years ago and wanted to wear it. My dress had a satin feel and kept snagging on the fabric when I tried to pin it on so I pinned it onto my £5 Primark hat. I love it!! It doesn’t need to be Chanel, I’m sure your grannies or your mums have cool brooches lying around in old jewellery boxes, pin it on a hat to add a little more glam.

 

Hope you enjoyed my blog, I have some really cool looks coming to my blog in the upcoming weeks and stay tuned to my social media accounts for all of my other collaborations. Not to mention I will be updating and focussing a lot more on my lifestyle and beauty section on the blog. If there is anything you would like me to focus on, any fashion themed looks to try out etc please let me know.  I appreciate all of your feedback…

Attention All Shoeaholics!

rsz_img_3533

Heyyyy Guys!!

 

I am writing this from Florida, currently tucked up in bed exhausted having just packed my case two days early simply to see how much more I can fit into my case…Result= shopping it is again tomorrow. Note to all potential Florida goers this Summer…Pack nothing- the shops here are insane!

 

Oh and apologies I have been a little delayed writing this blog…my recent commitments have involved chasing Mickey and Minnie around Disney land and practising my vocals for the Frozen singalong shows.

IMG_3523

IMG_3516

IMG_3534

 

So I was fortunate enough to be contacted recently by an online website called Shoeaholics  who sell discounted shoes (and accessories)…not just any old shoes… I’m talking Kurt Keiger, Carvela, Sabrina and loads more all at a fraction of the price in the high street stores. I came across these beaut Miss Kg nude/orange faux suede colour block heels.

Im not usually ‘matchy match’ person as you know but the shoes went so well with the bag that I thought it made the perfect combination. When you have a “killer combo” as id call it (statement shoes & bag)… I think its best to keep the outfit minimal to keep all focus on the accessories. Double denim is an all time simplistic, easy to wear favourite of mine and instead of opting for my usual skinny fit jeans, I chose to wear my flayers. I don’t care what you say there is nothing wrong with a good old pair of flayers and they look really good with a large turn up at the bottom. (tip- I love a turned up flayer with a flat birkenstock sandal in the Summer!!)

 

 

The denims are old school TOPSHOP but you can shop similar styles here.

shirt – LEVIS

heels- MISS KG from Shoeaholics

necklace (missguided)

bag- Anya Hindmarch

***I have mentioned this in a previous blog but the stickers you can get from Skinnydip are an amazing way to freshen up an old bag you may be bored of or if you are simply looking to create your very own Anya Hindmarch style bag at a much more affordable price.***

Sunnies- H&M £6.99

Belt- Louis Vuitton (Looooove this belt at the moment because it is actually reversible so you are getting two colours for the price of one)

Glasgow Style Mile Shopping Festival

rsz_img_3465

Hey Hey everybody!!

 

Happy Friday! This is a more special blog than usual as there is something very exciting happening next week in Glasgow city centre and I am going to tell you all about it. If you read my blog Spring In My Step back in February you would of read about my love for shopping in Glasgow and about the several high street and high end stores Glasgow has to offer. It is no wonder Glasgow has gained its boastful reputation as being  the best shopping destination in the UK outside of London. With over 1500 stores to “shop till you drop” in, this officially makes Glasgow a dreamy shopping destination for the shameless shopaholics like myself. Not to mention the several shopping centres such as Buchanan Galleries, St Enoch Cente, Princes Square and Argyle Arcade.

 

The festival is running from the 25th-30th May and if you find yourself at the bottom of Buchanan St be sure to pop into the  Festival Hub which will be situated there to offer advice and info on whats on. Over the five days you will gain an insight and valuable information from the experts themselves in categories such as Beauty, Fashion and Lifestyle/Home where they will be demonstrating live masterclasses and styling sessions.

 

TIP- Keep yours eyes an ears open for exclusive discounts and promotions from restaurants and shops partaking in this weeks upcoming Style Mile event!!!

 

So to get everyone in the Summer mode…and…given that festival season is just around the corner, I decided to style my very own favourite festival inspired look.

 

IMG_3476

IMG_3470

IMG_3463

IMG_3467

 

IMG_3488

IMG_3500

So truthfully this look wasn’t hard to achieve given that the high street shops are filled with amazing festival themed pieces with everything from tassels, faux suede jackets, hippy chic styles, lace floaty tops and embroidered dresses… On the plus side, thanks to Buchanan galleries everything I needed was under the one roof so didn’t have to branch out far to get everything. Buchanan Galleries has over 80 stores and with their own car park as well and food court, it makes for a very enjoyable and convenient shopping experience. (Check out Buchanan Galleries website to read all about what they have in store for the upcoming Style Mile event)

I wanted a look that was comfortable and trendy and one which I could wear again and style in a different way. After all, there is nothing I hate more than wearing something once and never being able to wear it again.

I matched my off the shoulder top with a fabulous black choker… (very Coachella of me!!).  The denim jacket is a must have- I don’t think I even own a pair of jeans without rips so when I saw this ripped denim jacket it was love at first sight. There is actually a COACHELLA brand H&M have got in store just now offering the funkiest festival season clothing at a really affordable price.

I LOVE these shorts…I will definitely wear them on a night out with a heel and off the shoulder jumper top. As for just now I simply dressed them down with statement TOPSHOP sandals.

Obviously the sun is shining and the white crop top seemed a perfect match at the time. But lets be honest, festivals in the UK can often turn into a rainy mudslide so don’t be afraid to layer to keep warm, these shorts would be fab with an oversized jumper, doc martens and denim jacket on top. Why not check out the badges in Topshop just now and customise you denim jacket?! (just a thought)

ACCESSORIES ARE KEY

Okay so if you browse through the magazines or think festivals, I always admire the floral headbands, tassel handbags, bumbags, rings, chokers, statement jewellery pieces and funky shades. Accessories are vital when creating a festival styled look of your own.

I went to town and got a statement choker and packet of rings to wear on each finger, along with an oversized silver button design hat and my backpack.

 

(CLICK on links to be directed to items to buy as seen on me)

Metallic shorts  £30 & Hat £20  (both from MANGO- I got mine in Buchanan Street- the staff could not be any more hands on and helpful and can order your size in if they don’t have it)

Caged Sandals TOPSHOP £52

The COACHELLA range is online however the denim jacket I got in store and I cannot seem to find on line.  However they have several other denim jackets online if you want a browse click here.

Off the shoulder Top, Pack of rings £5.99  & Sunglasses £6.99 ; ALL H&M £20

Backpack- LV (Edinburgh store)

 

Thankyou for dropping by as always,

If you do make it into Glasgow next week I hope you enjoy the festivities and grab yourself a bargain or two…or 50!!! Most of all- Have Fun!!

 

love always,

Shak x

Denim Dress and Metallic Boots

rsz_img_3422

Hey Hey Hey

How are you all? I just noticed it seems like I’m on a denim blogging mission just now with all the denim I’ve been posting lately but I can assure you this is the last denim post for a little while (till next week probs). I just couldn’t resist showing you my recent collaboration with QUIZ.  The weather has been so freakin’ good recently I have lots of new cute Summer inspired outfits to show you coming to the blog in the forthcoming weeks (Knowing my luck Ive probably just jinxed myself and it will start snowing next week and ill go back to blogging my fav Primark thermal looks ha NOOO!!)

 

Anyway, I am IN love with this lil mini denim dress. And to make it somewhat more appealing- ITS ON SALE for 20 bucks.

I love the light shade of denim…and this dress is so Season friendly. By that I mean you could literally wear it as I have on a sunny day with bare legs and ankle boots or dressed more causal with a pair of converse (and frilly ankle socks ovbs).  Then come Winter, it would look SUPER cute with a polo neck underneath, tights and over the knee boots. Whats even better is its down from £30 to £19.99- BARGAIN!!

SO if you read my last blog you will have seen my super cute metallic slipper shoes (which I never have off- purely because metallic silver goes with almost everything) so when I saw these silver boots I thought I need these. As they are more formal they go amazing with denims and being tall already the block heel isn’t too high so they make a great daytime or evening boot.

This outfit literally would go with almost any bag however recently I have a strong love for backpacks. This is my newest baby but I have linked a a couple of backpacks I absolutely love  below (just click on link and it will direct you).

Grey suede/leather backpack  £35

Mango white leather backpack £40

 

Where to Buy

QUIZ dress (I’m wearing a size 8)

Metallic ankle boots £75

backpack – LV store, Edinburgh

arm bracelets- How cute are these?! SO IDEAL for TITP/festivals…or just dressing up for a beer garden on a sunny day like I did! I got them from ASOS (some of the different styles they have are amazing- you will love)

Thanks for dropping by,

Enjoy the sunshine (if your stuck in work this week…then im sorry forget I said that)

love always,
