Dungaree dress oh yeah

Urban Outfitters in America has brought back this vintage dungaree dress from Calvin Klein, but it isn't available in the UK and I want it so much! It's officially called 'Urban Renewal Cutoff Overall Dress' and costs $49.00 (roughly £30.89) and I'm in love with it. I'm thinking of wearing it on lazy summer days, with a bright tie-dye shirt underneath and a scrunchie in my hair, real 90s like.

Trending: Straight, Full Fringes

Full frontal fringes (bangs for your forehead) have been making a full-blown comeback into mainstream fashion. These bring back feelings of the 60s (and you know I love all things vintage/old-school) and they can be the best accessory for some vintage outfits. Mainly, they frame oval faces better, but some heart, diamond and long-shaped faced people can pull it off, it's all about how you style it.

This is good for people who have the face for it, but some people need to re-think their decisions in hair care because they look a hot mess. Seriously, these fringes take forever to grow out and you might have to do what my best friend Rosie did in year 9 and clip your fringe back with a bobby pin.

Here a some pictures cos I know how much you love those:

Do you prefer "fashion victim" or "ensembly challenged"?

Okay, so I'm super stocked because the insanly expensive shop Wildfox has brought out this totally radical collection for S/S13. It's genius and completely inspired by the greatest 90's film of all time - Clueless. I, like basically every other girl, fell in love with Josh and wanted to be Cher, especially with her endless supply of clothes and cash, and also her still ahead of the times fashion-conscious computer program that picked her outfits.

Anyway, this collection is full of nostalgic clothes that give a modern twist on classical nineties stuff and makes me want to break out the video tapes and grab some scrunchies and chilax.

So basically they're totally bringing back Clueless fashion.
I know, right!

Also they have some clothes with direct quotes from the movie, like a totally bodacious jumper that says "As if" and a tee with "Totally bogus" on it. I'm in love.

So obviously, I'm super excited for this to come our and am praying that it will be released in the UK asap!! I really hate paying extra to get clothes shipped over here :(

The whole lookbook -

And just if you thought this style wasn't on trend (which would totally make you, like, blind), here's an example of Cher's fashion being way ahead.

Okay, so I have seen these everywhere. And i mean, literally everytime I go out of my house I can see someone wearing these. Initially, I was like "I don't want them because everyone has them" and I was going to ignore how goo they looked and how vintage (I love everything vintage). But then I was having an 80s movie night and I fell in love with that fashion era again and I am desperate to own a pair.

So here are the shoes I am just about to order:

These shoes are amazing. They're from Nike and cost £70, which is okay, as shoes go (plus there was free delivery).

I know Santa's already gone, but could he come back and buy me these?

Just gaze at them.

Looking Glass: Zoella


So I was bored and looking up fashion hauls on youtube (I don't know why, but i love watching them) and I found this youtuber called zoella280390. I watched a couple of her videos and now i'm officially in love with her (...slash her brother who is so hot and funny in the video I saw of him). Also another point for Zoella is that she's English and always says the prices in her haul video which is so useful it's not even funny.

Anyway, I think the way she does her videos is really cute and friendly - which is hard to convey when talking to a camera - and she shops where I shop (except I shop loooads at Topshop and Urban Outfitters, and I think she wouldn't go to Urbans because it is crazy expensive). She presents everything really clearly and doesn't just stick to the same old stuff from each store (and she also does make-up tutorials and random vlogs, which are actually really fun to watch). I guess it's an asumption that you have to like her style to like her videos, but I'm pretty sure I'd still like them even if they weren't my thing.

So check her out:

That's it from me. I'll be coming back with some christmasy stuff soon, so don't worry!! I leave you with this quote that's been stuck in my head all day, so I thought I'd share, "she's fabulous, but she's evil."

Trending: Skater Skirts

Okay, so I know this is a bit late in the game, but I've been seeing these everywhere so I had to post something abut them. So...
Making a comeback from trying to get out there back in 2007, the skater skirt has finally become one of Winter's essentials. Inspired by the ever popular figure skater dress, this skirt is being seen in every fashion store and on every online clothes shop. Wear these with winter-think tights or pretty much anything, these skirts will class up any outfit (or with the leather one, twist sexy and classy at the same time).

"When choosing a skater skirt, I would recommend either a solid color, or a subtle print such as a soft floral or lace. The shape of the skirt itself draws attention to the wearer and a very loud print could be too much." -Elite Magazine

keep it classy bbecakes xoxo
