Ten of the Best: Printed Trousers


New York Fashion Week SS13 Catwalk Show Report

Rebecca Minkoff, Clements Ribeiro and House of Holland SS13

One set of items that are always on my wish list at the moment are printed trousers. When it’s too cold to wear shorts and skirts you can’t help but wear jeans all the time, especially when you’re on a students budget (like me!), but gosh don’t jeans become boring after a while. why not add a splash of colour into your wardrobe with a pair of Aztec or Floral print trousers or go classy in monochrome with a black and white pair.

A How-To Guide: Staying Fashionable on a Budget




One of the things that makes us girls unhappy is never finding the clothes we love at affordable prices. It’s something we always struggle to find, so to help I have made a guide on how to stay fashionable on a budget. After reading this guide it will be possible after all!

Think Before You Buy

Before you make a purchase think about what you are buying. Do you really need it? You could wait a week before making a purchase and if it’s still on your mind then go ahead and buy it, if not then you probably don’t need it as much as you originally thought you did. Also it’s all too easy to buy an item of clothing just because it’s in a sale, so make sure you really like it and ask yourself whether you would consider buying it if it was selling at its full price. It’s a good idea not to be cruel to yourself as well. If you know that you can’t afford an item don’t try it on. It might be fun but you’re going to feel even sadder if it suits you perfectly and you just can’t afford it.

Sky Ferreira models for Forever 21


One of my modelling and musical favourites is now fronting Forever 21’s festival collection. Sky Ferreira is both a Model and Singer and will be performing at Coachella this year so the festival style is ideal for her to advertise at the moment. The photo shoot and the film (see below) were both shot at the Saguara Hotel in Palm Springs.  The Californian style is perfect for summer with pretty boho items and bright colours included in the collection.

Stream Peace’s brand new album ‘In Love’


‘In Love’ is the brilliant debut album from the English indie rock band Peace. This album has been on my wishlist ever since I first heard the gorgeous ‘California Daze’ and I’m not at all disappointed with it. Now I’ve got to resist not listening to it again before I buy it! The album will be released in the UK on the 25th of March. Pre-order it on Itunes or on the official site. But for now take a listen to the whole album at NME.

Your New favourite Artist: Melody’s Echo Chamber

When I think of Melody’s Echo Chamber I always get thoughts of a hazy summers day. Melody’s eponymous debut album, which was created together with Kevin Parker (Tame Impala) is a perfect piece of dream pop. But unlike other artists under that genre, it isn’t a boring album were all the songs sound all too similar. Melody’s Echo Chamber is something completely different. The album is hypnotic but also catchy in some instances with it’s fusion of psych-rock and sunshine pop. A perfect combination I think. It certainly is one of my favourite albums to come out of 2012.
Check out some songs below;

Brand New Video: AlunaGeorge - Attracting Flies

Attracting flies is the brand new single from English duo AlunaGeorge. The music video was directed by Emili Nava and shows a modern and quite gritty take on the old fairytales we all know and love. I’m super excited to see how this charts after the success of their last single White Noise, a collaboration with electronic duo Disclosure.
Check out the video below;


Get the Cutest Spring Dresses from Ruche

When I first saw this collection I thought I had fallen in love a little bit. I think Ruche is seriously one of the best stores for gorgeous dresses just like Modcloth. These dresses are perfect for both formal and casual occasions, especially if your going to be a wedding guest (by wearing these dresses you’ll certainty be in the running for the best dressed guest!). The prices are also pretty reasonable too! Hurrah. Finally, an amazing store were you can buy the items from without ending up with no money left at the end of the day. 
Here’s some of my favourite items;

Label Love: Alice Temperley at John Lewis

Whilst flicking through magazines I always seem to come across an advert advertising the British designer’s gorgeous Somerset range. Every single Alice Temperley advert I’ve seen has caught my eye with the beautiful patterning and delicate lace, perfectly capturing the essence of spring and summer.
After becoming one of the fastest selling brands in John Lewis’s history with her Autumn/Winter 2012 range (probably due to the fact she designed a dress for Kate Middleton!), I can guarantee that this year’s Spring/Summer items will be a sell out, so be quick to grab a piece of her collection.

In love with Love label: The best of


I've never really taken much notice of before as I really hate buying clothes online, but I think I might make an exception this time, as this spring there is a whole collection of gorgeous clothing on the online department store.

After looking at my picks you might just decide that you ‘need’ these lovely items in your life too! After all the prices are super reasonable.

A Styled and Wired Update: I’m back…


As you may have noticed it’s been rather quiet around the Styled and Wired blog lately. Don't worry I didn’t forget about you lovely followers and my love of all things fashionable and musical is still strong, it’s just my laptop was broken for a whole month. Apart from not being able to feed my music hunger with my daily rummage through YouTube or being able to blog, it’s been pretty nice not being on here everyday.  But anyway, I’m back now and ready to blog my arse off! : )

So what happened when I was away?

One of my style icons Cara Delevingne seems to be absolutely everywhere now. Hooray for faves becoming famous! Serious face, life and eyebrow envy going on here.

AlunaGeorge (who I previously blogged about before) got a number two single with the fabulous ‘White Noise’. They teamed up with Disclosure for this track which has constantly been on repeat. So soooo good. Check it out below;


Is it just me or did you think the Brits were ridiculously boring this year? Come on guys, bring back the rock star attitude. We need you! I was waiting in anticipation for one of the One Direction guys to make a drunken mishap, but they didn’t.

Move over Gangham Style, the Harlem Shake is the new dance craze now! Oh god.

Rihanna released her collection for River Island. Fashionable yet affordable. Great.

Also some important award ceremonies happened, but enough about the past. I want to write about all things new and awesome now. Yey

Ps. You can visit my tumblr page. I’ll be updating it a lot now.
