Remember a while ago I was talking about trying to find a good pair of shoes that would be comfortable, support my feet and go with my style?
Well, I didn’t have to go to Italy to have them hand made my fairies!!
I did however, go to Russell and Bromley, which was my Mother’s go to place when I was growing up, and found them.
They were on sale (so good for my wallet!) and even though they’re a loafer and not a laced shoe, they do have a decent amount of support, and they go with (nearly) all of my clothes!

Ohhkkayy first ootd in a while! Apologies for the bad lighting -the weather is pretty on and off here and it wasn’t a very bright day! This is what I wore to the Rahat Fateh Ali Khan concert last night ^.^
Dress- I got from Zara, I can’t remember if I got it online or in store but I was so happy when I saw it, because I LOVE the look of this material. It is slightly big but I don’t have the time to learn how to take it in at the moment! It will happen though!!!
Jeans- ok, I really don’t like the process of buying jeans, they’re always slightly too small or big. Ugh. I’ve seen the jeans that Kristen Stewart wears and I love the fit, so I did some searching and found they’re the 7 For All Mankind second skin skinny jeans. I’ve been wanting them for over a year now but can’t justify spending £198 on one pair of jeans!! From the minute I knew we were going to Florida this year, I found an outlet and pretty much hoped I’d find my size! When we went to the store not only did I find the jeans in my size, but every pair of jeans were $99, yay ^.^ !! Now $99 is still a lot of money, but to be honest I thought they’d be priced at $160-ish so I was pleasantly surprised. I saw this pair in the photo and fell in LOVE! So I treated myself to both pairs because I hadn’t actually bought too much at that point. And I mean, look at them they’re just so beautiful and detailed and ugh! I just love them!
Shoes- New Look
Necklace- Zara (but I bought from Ebay)
Nails- Barry M

Hey guys hope you’re all well :). Ok so Ive been neglecting the blog a lot past couple(?) months- I am aware, but its because ive been travelling here and there over June up until now.
So for the most part of June I was in Africa. You saw a couple of the photos I posted earlier..if you follow me on instagram (@blncnoir) you’d have seen more frequent updates. I feel like it would be easier to vlog this but I’ll carry on like this for now. I went there to work for a small construction company because it was so hard to find jobs here. Lo and behold i got offered a job the friday before I flewout to Zambia! I took it and thats why I only spent a month out there- the plan was to spend 6months at least in order to get some work experience. And then a week ago i came out to Florida (where I am atm) for my cousins wedding. I return to the UK end of next week so will be posting outfits again once Im back into a routine. Btw the shopping here is awesome the sales assistants are lovely and really helpful. I went to the outlets as well as the mall and found some great bargains.
The weather had been good in London before I left so I got to wear my skirts and dresses that I’d bought. Which is a rarity because I usually only wear trousers! I’m venturing out!! I didnt however, take any photos lol so I’ll probably do a recap post or something.
If theres anything you guys would like me to cover get in touch but otherwise keep safe and I will post on my return!
Yo the Zara sale is pretty legit dawg.
Driving through Solwezi..
Hey Guys! Want to know why I haven’t been posting regularly? Weeelll….its because I’m in Africa!!! I have been here for a week now and am on a one month internship out here with a construction company. There’s not much to my outfits here as there is so much dust it’s pretty much a case of wearing stuff you don’t mind ruining! Once I am back I will plan a few posts on packing etc and what to take for the flight etc but for now I may post some scenery photographs for your viewing pleasure :)
Take care guys,
found the right shade of turquoise!! Shame it’s sh*t qual. had to do three coats to get an even colour. lol. It’s Barry M if anyone is wondering. Usually I’m really happy with their colours. Ah well..
This whole outfit apart from the cardigan was bought in 2005 and it’s all from GUESS. The cardigan is from MANGO sale. Rings were Topshop and H&M.
Remember I said I wanted to cut my hair really short but was waiting for my cousin’s wedding to be over before I did it? Well, i did it.
Lol so I tried out hair chalk. Flipping hell. This is how I did it. Beware your hands and any clothing will get dirty and the chalk colour doesn’t wash out of clothing! First time my hair was damp, and the colour didn’t come out so then I read the instructions and realised your hair has to be wet, see fifth photo, and tried again. Damaged the crap outta my hair!
