o is for outfit, pattern clash

everybody has seen the new pattern clash trend.
today by pure chance i thought i should try it out.
i was wearing one of my favourite patterned jerseys today, i went to visit someone before work and they gave me a blazer over which i had been drooling for ages!
another awesome birthday gift!
it's a beautiful tapestry style handmade blazer.
it was freezing at work so i popped this bad boy on.
needless to say some people think i look stupid, but somehow i thought it looks cool. 
would you do the pattern clash trend?

m is for monday, vintage

after my busy weekend, i like to keep it simple today.
having overslept meant i just threw on something very quickly!
i'm a bit tired and i have loads of stuff to do.
my staple for winter, oversized jerseys, tights and boots!
what is not to love?
easy, quick and stylish.
having statement jerseys means you have an instant awesome outfit.
you just need to accessories it with some cute jewelry.
i just threw on a crown necklace, my trusty omega watch and some diamond studs.
understated yet awesome. 

s is for street style, customer

this is one of my lovely customers Alice.
always a pleasure to see her, and man is this lady stylish.
she just always looks amazing, no matter what she is wearing.
Friday night at the Night Market, she wore a Vintage Lover Jersey which she picked up at the Toffie Pop Festival.
Thanks for always being so sweet and awesome whenever i see you.
keep rocking your awesome looks Alice!

s is for street style, tote

friday night was the Vintage Winter Night Market.
it was fun, different, but quiet cold!
i enjoyed myself, met some awesome new people and took some sneaky street style pics.
if you ever see me creeping around with my phone then i'm probably taking a pic.
just ignore me, it means you have something i love and want to share with the world.
i think it's a cool compliment, and i like having you guys and girls just being yourselves not striking poses.
more natural and just you, that's what makes you so special!

i saw a girl with this awesome tote!
it's the cutest thing ever.
if i see one i'm so buying it!
good buy, stylish lady!

a while back i saw this guy at the ymewk night market with this t-shirt, it was hilarious, but oh so true!
i had to get a pic, he was nice enough to stand still for me.
how many people  have you met that look nothing like their beautifuly photoshopped online pics?
