Summer Wishlist - DKO X ZAFUL

So with summer basically here and my bank account saying very little after completing my second year of university, I decided I would put together a little wishlist in collaboration with Zaful who kindly reached out to me.  I think by now everyone and their mum has heard of or watched a Zaful haul/review on youtube, mainly focusing on swimwear but me being my ever divergent self had to bring you guys something different...

I decided to put together two looks that I would most likely wear on holiday, smart casual vibes that can easily be dressed up or down for the occasion. As my 20th birthday is fast approaching and I'll be spending it in Paris; of course I had to throw in a few luxury items that I'm lusting over right now and hope to get whilst out there.

As you guys will know from my last post, I'm all ruffles at the moment and had to incorporate that into my looks. Look one, is very summer-esque  and the lace up detail adds a little something different to your standard denim shorts. As I'm hoping to get the Gucci marmont matelasse I decided to colour coordinate my bag, shoes and shades and add a simple chain to bring attention back to my collar bone which is one of my favorite features.

Whilst look 2 is more chilled with trainers instead of heels and a simple white crop shirt and lace up skirt. I can already picture myself outside the Eiffel tower doing what tourists do in this fit. I have seen this skirt on a number of websites and always said I wanted to get it so why not now? I added a simple choker and of course a statement Gucci Dionysus to add a little edge.

Oh and can you guess Gucci is one of my favourite luxury brands?

Lace x Frills - A playful fit

Welcome back guys. I'm back with another outfit that I think I can almost class as controversial. It definitely won't be every girl's cup of tea, especially if you're a trend following type. But I just love it..

I've been really loving the concept of layering which a lot of my pending posts will feature. I originally bought the black dress which I showed on it's own in my last post but thought that I could potentially jazz it up... so when I saw this amazing bodysuit I knew it was a match made in heaven. Just looked at the sleeve detailing. Guys I can't.

I was skeptical about buying this bodysuit as a matter of fact. It's a misguided piece like majority of my wardrobe but I wasn't sure what the quality would be like. The fit itself is perfect because I got it from the tall section when there was a cheeky 35% off. Alone it's cute but the lace detail against the white is just so everything.

Then the jeans. You lot know I love a bargain so when I typed in "flared jeans" on google and I saw these for £14 I clicked soooo fast. I also got them in a blue denim and I think they are just a cute pair of ankle grazers with a twist. They just remind me of summer. I can picture myself in a cute ass crop top and the the blue version of these jeans with a mule or platform heel. Like I said, they won't be for everyone so I styled them with heels and vans to give you two of many ways they can be worn. My boyfriend hates them and as I type this out I'm actually laughing at his reaction when I first showed him. But to each their own, I love them.

As for the belt I wanted a statement piece so I paired the look with my Sonia Rykiel belt which has become my fave designer accessory....until I get my hands on the Gucci gucci marmont belt that is :)

Valentines Lookbook

Happy Valentines day loves. I'm back with some more looks that I thought would be perfect for valentines or a dressy night out in general and thought the best way to kill two birds with one stone was to dip my foot into the large pond that is youtube while serving looks as well...

Look 1

Nightwear, Satin and lingerie as daywear is slowly becoming a trend that I am living for right now. The pyjama tops especially or all things satin in general I love and so when I saw this cute night gown I thought making a lookbook was a perfect excuse to buy into that trend. Along with the highly popular fishnet trend. I would normally pair these with ripped denim or a black leather mini skirt for an edgy look but for the purpose of the lookbook I wore as is.

Look 2

I absolutely loved this jumpsuit I think white is so flattering on darker skin tones. This look is perfect for nights out. The classic all white outfit is so easy to accessorise as well. I completed the look with my holographic  heels and minimal diamante choker.

Look 3

Look 3 may actually be a favourite of mine. It's a playful frill playsuit in cherry red with adjustable straps that allow you to be as modest as you'd like. It's definitely not for everyone but I love the brand, the texture and how it accentuates my legs. Staying on trend, I matched it with a chunky/corset vibe belt and a gold encrusted choker from River Island and large hoop earrings for that extra glam night out feel.

Look 4/5 

I initially brought this dress as a layering piece to wear shirts and tops underneath because the detailing on this dress is to die. Again, it suits the nightwear as daywear trend with a lot of girls making it acceptable to wear a satin slip dress on a night out. So I decided to do my own rendition pairing it with over the knee boots and a matching bomber. Giving me street style luxe vibes. This definitely won't be the last  you see of either of these items....

As for the perspex heels. Can we just take a second. How cute are these? They are minimal which is perfect because it means they go with everything and most importantly they are super comfortable and only £16 #Bargin

Loose ends

I'm back boo's and I'm excited. Of course I had to start off the year with some fire pictures for the gram and my blog. I was defo feeling myself. I'm loving the lace up jeans trend right now I honestly feel I can live in these jeans. They make a boring outfit so damn sassy  I just can't. I did say I would stay away from Joni jeans and I've been on the hunt ever since....

I'm very particular when it comes to finding jeans that fit right. I have long skinny legs and so the jeans also need to be long and extra skinny. I can't be dealing with all that baggy, bootcut type mess that's not cute. I heard a lot about fashion nova jeans- how they make your bum look, how high waisted they are etc and after Kylie Jenner posted a picture in their dark high waisted ones...Every other haul on youtube I watched for like 3 weeks straight contained Fashion Nova jeans.

I purchased the same ones as my soul sister Kylie and these 'Bandit jeans'... (the other pair will be reviewed in a separate post to come) but these babies I just love. The quality is insane!! They are thick actual denim which I was praying for. They are longgg as in I could fold them up and still rock this look which I find with most online retailers like missguided or asos is a problem. Unless you buy from the tall section 99.9% of the time you'll have jack ups. I'm not here for it.

I did find though that Fashion Nova shipping is pricey. $12 to be exact so if you aren't buying more than one thing it isn't really worth it. But these jeans were defo worth it. I also loved the fact I could still wear underwear with these as the lace up effect on the side only reaches a certain point.

Last but not least, can we talk about this bodysuit? I previously blogged in a pink one from primark (link here) but they released new colours in black and I think Khaki so of course I had to pick up both because they are such staples and for such a good price.. girl why not?
