NEW BEGINNINGS


Having been bleached blonde for just over a year and a bit, I recently decided to shake things up a little and make the change from bleach blonde to ginger! I went for a deep, dark ginger that almost looks auburn when in the dark, but when caught in the right light, the orange shines through. The colour to be exact was 06/34… I don’t know exactly what that means but there you have it!

Prior to this LookBook, I had a clear vision in my head before meeting up with the hugely talented Sophia Carey and I knew that I wanted this whole LookBook to best reflect my own personal style! We shot 3 different looks and I would love to know which one is your favourite…

Late last year I had a meeting with the lovely PR from Pretty Green who had very kindly gifted me two items from their ‘Black Label’ which I absolutely love and personifies the whole rock n roll vibe which feels slick and tailored with a flamboyant twist. I decided to feature these 2 items for this LookBook as I have worn these pretty much to death over the past couple of months!

Out of the 3 different looks, which is your favourite and why? Are there any items of clothing you have your eye on? If so, which!? I would love to hear your thoughts on this and do click the ‘like’ button below!

BOOHOOMAN: WINTER LOOKBOOK


I think it’s safe to say that here in England the weather is cold. Very cold.

I had been contacted by boohooMAN where I was able to select a jacket and a pair of skinny jeans! I have collected a lot of jackets and coats over the years and I tend to steer more towards statement coats which do all of the talking but decided to opt for something a little different this time…

I came across this denim jacket in a creamy/white colour with a Shearling lined collar and I went for this as I liked how casual it was but the added touch of the collar gave it that little extra something! For the jeans I went for a dark grey with some simple rips at the knees which given this weather wasn’t exactly the smartest idea, however, they are incredibly comfortable to wear and look great in being able to dress things up, and dress things down!

For this lookbook, I revisited an old location which had a strong, urban vibe which I felt best suited this particular look. I met up with my trusty photographer, Matt McCormick who has helped create many of my lookbooks and once again I am extremely pleased with the results!

I hope you all enjoy this lookbook as much as we did creating it! What do you think to the jacket and jeans that I selected? Are you a fan of the images? Have you shopped with boohooMAN before? If so, what did you purchase? Let me know your thoughts below as I would love to hear from you and don’t forget to click the ‘like’ button!

Also, with it being Black Friday today, the items chosen both have deals on them with over 30% off! So, what are you waiting for?

THE IDLE MAN LOOKBOOK


I had been contacted by The Idle Man with regards to selecting a few key items from their latest A/W ‘18 Collection! What I love about the brand is the simplicity of their clothing and how versatile each piece can be. I love Autumn and Winter, predominantly due to the clothing! I find that it is much more fun to dress up in the colder weather with sweaters, coats and different accessories to layer up, so shooting this LookBook was a lot of fun for me.

I had a wide variety of clothing to choose from and ended up choosing:

For this LookBook I wanted something a little darker compared to my previous shoots and I met up with the incredible Tom Hall in Northern Quarter in Manchester! We trailed around the streets for a good hour or so taking these photos and I couldn’t be more happier with the results. I hope you enjoy the images as much as we did taking them, and I would love to hear your thoughts on this so don’t forget to click the ‘like’ button below and leave me a comment!

BUCKING GOOD SHOES BY GOODWIN SMITH


I had been contacted by Goodwin Smith to select my very own pair to style for a LookBook.

As a fan of loafers, I selected their Liberty Tan loafers as I felt these were closest to my style as they looked slick and could match with anything! What I particularly liked about the loafers were the fringe and tassel detailing on them and felt comfortable to wear. These loafers are now in the sale reduced from £130 to £59.99! They also come in the colour ‘Jade Green’ and are Limited Edition so be sure to snap these up whilst you can.

Myself and Matt McCormick wandered around Leeds and took these images which I am very pleased with given how dull and wet the weather was! I do hope you like the images, and I would love to know your thoughts down below!

Have you shopped with Goodwin Smith before? If so, what did you buy? Do you like the Liberty Tan loafers I selected? Let me know!

BOOHOOMAN 'LOVE IS LOVE' COLLECTION 2018


With Pride Season well and truly upon us, it was an absolute pleasure to have been approached by boohooMAN to showcase a few pieces from their Pride Collection! Having been to Gay Pride in Leeds a couple of years ago, I remember the whole experience of it all to be nothing but just pure fun! In 2018 it is important, and always will be to celebrate Pride and to make our voices be heard.

For this shoot, I selected their 'Love Is Important' t-shirt, their 'Pride Printed' sweater, and to complete the look, their 'Love Is Love' cap! All items are gender-free and 10% of the profits will be divided between the Terrence Higgins Trust and The Rainbow Fund.

I met up with the photographer; Milly, for the first time and I wanted to go to a location that was minimal and fuss-free so to speak to allow the clothes to speak for themselves. I am beyond happy with these photographs, and I really hope you all like these images too!

PRETTY GREEN LOOKBOOK


I had first heard of Pretty Green by Liam Gallagher as the brand was founded by him in 2009. Pretty Green is very much a nod to the 90's with clothes that strongly represent both the mod and Rock'N'Roll era. When I had been approached to create a LookBook for the brand I was both honoured and chuffed, especially to represent Leeds!

I love the Rock'N'Roll look/vibes so when I was given the opportunity to choose some key items, I chose those that stayed true to my style and I also wanted to choose some pieces that I wouldn't necessarily have thought of wearing before such as the crisp white jeans alongside the Baker Boy cap!

Myself and Matt McCormick found a field adorned in yellow flowers and I felt this was the perfect location to tie in the Summer theme with the brand. I also selected a few pieces from the Katie Eary x Pretty Green Collection and had a lot of fun shooting this LookBook! I do hope you like the images and I would love to hear your thoughts on what you think to them. 

Have you shopped with Pretty Green before? If so, what have you bought? Have you viewed their latest collections? Have you been into their Leeds Boutique? Do let me know your thoughts below and don't forget to click the 'like' button!

THE POWER OF THE SUIT - MOSS BROS


For the upcoming S/S '18 season, I had been gifted a suit of my choice from Moss Bros! Following on from the shoot I partnered up with them last Winter, it was a great feeling to have been approached by them again. 

I have never really been a 'suit' person, instead, I would perhaps wear a blazer on its own with a pair of jeans or some suit trousers with a biker jacket to add a twist, so it was rather new and fresh to me to wear a full 3 piece suit but it's safe to say I definitely felt more sophisticated and strong! 

I chose the Skinny Fit Khaki Suit which now comes with a Free Shirt & Tie of your choice! I chose this Suit as I felt the colour was different to anything I own myself and I felt that it was a fresh choice in time for S/S! Myself and Matt McCormick went to Granary Wharf in Leeds and found a run down area to contrast against the sharp, strong suit. I am very happy with the images, and I hope you all like the images too!
