True Love, Lost

Please help!

I’ve fallen in love, with a skirt.

I’ve been on the hunt for a while for the perfect, leather, but not really leather skirt. Real leather is a bit out of my price range you see. I wanted one that was very plain, so would go with everything, no zips, or studs. Pleather can often end up looking fake, so I wanted one that didn’t scream ‘I’m not real!’

After much searching, I found the perfect skirt. H&M came through for me and ticked all the boxes, and for only £14.99!

But alas, I’m not the only girl who has been lusting after the perfect leather skirt, and it’s sold out everywhere, and I mean everywhere. Sad but true, I’ve become slightly obsessed with finding it, checking both of the H&M’s in Leeds around once a week, but no luck! I’ve not wanted an item of clothing so badly for a long time.

So please, if you’re lucky enough find the perfect pleather skirt in your size, grab it, and never let it go!

People say we Monki around

Since opening its first UK shop in London last year Monki is a brand that’s become a firm favorite within the UK fashion blogger world. In fact it was LLYMLRS aka Lily Melrose, and Beauty Crush’s Sammi, who first brought their simple but oh-so cool designs to my attention. Monki is a sister brand to the well-established cheap Monday, and describes itself as a ‘combination of the more simple minimalistic Scandinavian fashion sense and a more expressive street style’.  Although they have some colourful pieces, the line is made up mainly of moody blacks, whites and greys, which is perfect for a grungey, winter look. Their simple pieces, often oversized, scream out to be layered-which is always a key trend for autumn/winter, and practical as the weather begins to pack in too! The only downfall is they currently only have one UK shop on Carnaby Street, which is a long way from Leeds, but that’s why internet shopping exists right? Their website is wonderful, each item has a thoughtful description, to me little things like that take a brand from good to great.

Here are some bits from their site which I’m sure will make it onto your payday wish list…

Skirt £30, Scarf £15, Jacket £50, Boots £35, Oversized Jumper £20
