BuyMyWardrobe Online Launch Party

In July i interned for Buymywardrobe and this week i was lucky enough to attend their launch party for their amazing website! 
If you haven't seen it yet then go check it out! They sell gorgeous pre-loved designer clothes, shoes and handbags at affordable prices. What's not to love? 

It was such a fun night, i went with my boyfriend. It was at Vanilla on Great Titchfield Street which is a gorgeous modern club. We ate canap├ęs, sipped champagne and then moved onto the after party at Whisky Mist. 

For all the photos click here!

The Team!
Me and my boyfriend 


Dress - Oasis
However i actually found this is a charity shop for £5.99! How crazy is that? 

 Shoes - New Look £29.99

I wanted my look for this event to be quite classic and glam at the same time, so i went for this sparkly shift dress and these black boot heels, which are quite comfy and sturdy. 
I knew i had to have fairly comfy shoes to walk around london so this was a good choice! 

ALSO ... I'm going to Bestival on Thursday so i need to get organised and start packing! This is my first festival so if anyone has any tips please let me know!!!!!! 
Thank youuuu

Pretty self explanatory, these are the images inspiring my daily fashion over this month! 
The diamond trend will be big this Autumn and is already hitting the high street.

Out of sight, out of mind...

I was casually doing my weekly browse on Topshop's 'New in this week' and saw this dress on the first page. I was quite pleased when clearing out my wardrobe to come across my very similar version. 
I wore it for a night out when i was about eighteen and its been shoved at the back of my wardrobe ever since. 
Being a penniless student has made me really appreciate my old clothes, 
It just shows that we shouldn't chuck and sell everything after wearing it once because a few years down the line it feels like a brand new dress ! Out of sight out of mind ;) 

Another good tip for appreciating your old rags and creating space in your wardrobe, do a seasonal bin bag. 
Sounds very strange but its something my mum has always made me do since i was young. 
As soon as spring hits and it feels unacceptable to wear your thermals, store them in a bin bag in the loft, and grab your bag of bikinis, summer dresses and hot pants! 
When you get your old things out and have a rummage you get that 'ahh i forgot i had this' moment and find a sincere appreciation for not chucking things away and buying a whole new wardrobe. 

Current Topshop dress - £45

My dress - New look about 2 years ago
Cant remember a price about £20-£30


While clothes may not make the woman, they certainly have a strong effect on her self-confidence --- which i believe does make the woman.
