checkmate







//Blazer- River Island/ Polo neck- Mango/ Trousers- Topshop/ Boots- New Look//

Hi Guys! I wore this yesterday to go for lunch with my Mam and Auntie. I got a lovely vegetarian option with spinach and feta and all that jazz. I think sometimes even if you're a meat eater it's a good idea to go veggie. I guess we shouldn't go for meat every single day!
Anyway, I bought this blazer/ jacket over the summer and it's been a really great cover up for the cooler days. I'm a fan of the oversize silhouette and think the check adds interest to an otherwise plain outfit. It's one of those things I was unsure about but am really glad I bought. I realise the rest of my outfit is a bit boring but you can't put the effort in every single day, right? 
Have a great day! Eleanor xxx

sugar skulls






I've been messing around with the face paints I bought yesterday and have had a go at a half sugar skull look. The creme white I bought for the base (Grimas) has come out ok. Unfortunately the Halloween Horror palette I had planned to draw the details with was such bad quality and just slid off my face. Instead I've used a mixture of MAC and Bourjois eyeshadows and pencil liner to create the skull design. I'm going to try something a bit more precise when my new Bobbi Brown liner brush arrives this week. Hope you're having a fun evening too. 
Much Love xxx

Hey Lovelies! I found this old denim jacket in a bag at my mother's house. I had actually planned to give it to charity but when I found it I was so pleased I forgot to. It's three sizes too big for me so you can imagine how small it was designed to be- I don't think it would have even buttoned up in my size. As it's very much Autumn now I'm trying to wear my DMs more often. I feel quite grungey (and cool) for once in this outfit. I'm also really pleased that these photos are semi- ok as it was so incredibly blowy yesterday! 
Anyway, hope you're having a lovely day, let me know any thoughts? 
Love Eleanor xxx

oversize


^ the leaves started falling on my head at this point (I'm not just pouting!) ^





// Coat- Topshop (old)/ Shirt- New Look/ Jeans- F&F/ Brogues- John Lewis/ Hat- Boohoo//

Hey Lovelies! Yesterday I went for a walk in Jesmond Dene, it was the perfect opportunity for a little Autumnal themed outfit post. I'm so happy with how bright these photos have turned out. Unfortunately as Chris is away my little brother has been doing my photos and well he hates it... Maybe you can tell?? 
I bought these brogues for work but I wanted to do something completely different with them for a casual option. They completely clash with my boyfriend jeans/ oversized coat which I think is really cool. I do look like I've just thrown this outfit together which I'm not sure about! The thing I like about blogging is you get the chance to really experiment with what you're wearing and can look back to see what does or doesn't work. 
I hope you're having a lovely day. Much Love xxx

Halloween goth make up





Hey Guys! I'm in a really Autumny Halloweeny mood today so I've gone for the first of a few Halloween make up looks! I've gone for a generic purple goth look, it could work with a witch/cat/pixie costume or whatever you wish really. I haven't used any blush or bronzer at all with this look. The only contour product I've gone for is a really white concealer across my cheek and brow bones to give that really dead look. My eyes were done using my MAC A passionate quest quad palette. I absolutely love this palette, the shades are just perfect for Autumn too. I've also used a bit of this on top of my lipstick to brighten it up a little. I've got Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 04 on my lips which is blended into black eyeliner in the corners. I didn't own a black lip liner- surprisingly! My lashes are Eyelure 156s but they were a really really old pair so I've thrown them out now. They're a really good set for an alternate look though! I'm going to try and get into town tomorrow and purchase some face paints and special effects stuff to do something a little more gory- woohoo! I've had my hair done today, gone a little ombre. Let me know what you think! 
Love Eleanor xxx

Inspiration Alexander Wang Spring/ Summer 2015












//Images from Dazed and Confused and Style//

Hello Lovelies! Right I know that I'm a little late posting this and all that stuff but I am massively in love with Alexander Wang's S/S 15 collection. I mean who doesn't want the perfect ratio of sports inspired pieces and ultra modern tailoring? It's right up my street. I'd just like to take a moment to appreciate his menswear collection too-   I can't get over how much I love their boots. If you're wondering why I always have menswear in my inspirational posts I will tell you.... 1. I work with menswear so I'm 'supposed' to think: "oh what would I wear if I was a man..." 2. I feel that it gives you a better understanding of fashion to take a look at what's going on for both sexes and 3. I don't know if you've noticed but I sort of like dressing like a boy.

Anyway I'm off to Newcastle tomorrow for a whole week Woohoo!

Have a great evening/ day...Much love xxx

blue jeans











// Top- F&F/ Dungarees- River Island (old) / Shoes- Primark// 

Hey Guys! It's Friday! I'm off home on Sunday morning for a whole week and am feeling very very pleased about that.
I wore this outfit a few days back, inspired by some street style I saw in Vogue- possibly? I'm always looking out for inspiration and it was pretty cool that this all came together. I bought this top from F&F at Tesco for a stupidly low price but it's one of those items that is just incredibly versatile. I never usually shop at supermarkets for clothing so this was a pleasant surprise! I do have trouble styling my dungarees/ overalls for Autumn but I think I've done alright, keeping it simple. 
Hope you guys are looking forward to the weekend too! Eleanor xxx
