Vogue Fashion’s Night Out MCR 2013

Global Fashion Event Vogue Fashion’s Night Out headed to Manchester for the first time this year, and after getting caught up in the thrills and spills of such a stylish evening, I can tell you it definitely delivered! Mixing style and shopping with an array of discounts, DJs, freebies, and fashion shows, this night was every fashionista’s paradise.

Having attended University in the city for four years, Manchester is my second favourite city after London, so experiencing the vibe of such a landmark fashion event there was exciting. Although temptations were high, I managed to keep my purchases down to just the following Brian Lichtenberg-esque RAD t-shirt from River Island…

I’m still longing after the Rihanna for RI Collection (particularly this beauty), but I’ve got my fingers crossed for a Rih Rih x RI-themed Christmas haul this year.

I’d definitely recommend checking out Vogue’s next instalment of their famous Fashion’s Night Out. Thanks to Vogue x MCR for a night of fashionable fun!

Polyvore Galore

The pull of Polyvore remains too tempting to resist, particularly when I can play around to create dream outfits like these…

African print x Monochrome x Gold

Tomboy Glamour

This is one site that I’m 100% certain will never lose its appeal!

Take a closer look at my favourite styles in my setswish list.

Beauty & Fashion PR Dissertation

I’ve recently completed and handed in my dissertation as part of my Masters in International Public Relations, something I’ve been constantly working on for the past 4-5 months. Reaching the end of my Maters PR studies and the end of my student life (finally!) feels amazing. With 7 months of full-time Internships already completed alongside my University studies, I feel 100% ready to enter the world of work.

Given my interests in Beauty and Fashion, it seemed only right to use these as the basis of my PR dissertation. Having already worked in Beauty PR, and having also experienced the Editorial side of the industry during my Internship at Now Magazine, exploring media relations between journalists and PR practitioners within these two industries was the ideal topic for me.

Interviewing a range of fashion and beauty journalists and PR practitioners in London was something I greatly enjoyed and found incredibly insightful. Although 15,000 words may sound like a lot, when it’s based around a topic you’re both passionate about and aspire to work in, it definitely helps!

I’ve enjoyed learning a great deal from studying for my Masters in International PR, and pairing this academic background with my extensive Internship experience means I can’t wait to apply all of my acquired PR and Marketing knowledge to the real world of work!

Polyvore: Monochrome & Gold

Polyvore really is my favourite site for playing stylist whilst creating fashion wish lists at the same time. It’s so addictive, I’m hooked! I’ve just spent a fun half hour creating the following Monochrome & Gold set…

Brian Lichtenberg X Karl Lagerfeld X Kurt Geiger x Jennifer Fisher X DKNY X Marc Jacobs X Giuseppe Zanotti

I love the clean, crisp, understated look of monochrome. Throw in some staple statement gold jewellery and this is a dream outfit!

Fashion Queen: Anna Dello Russo

Ever since I first discovered Vogue Japan Editor Anna Dello Russo, she’s been right up there as one of my ultimate fashion icons and inspirations. When it comes to style, this fashionista is the definition of fearlessness, individuality, and fun.

After much research into ADR’s wonderland of a wardrobe (research… fun?), I’ve picked out 5 of my favourite looks from this fashion master. From Versace to Peter Pilotto, with some padlock earrings thrown in… choosing an overall favourite was tough! Due to my definite obsession with Givenchy and Verscae prints and bright, bold bomber jackets, the below head-to-toe Givenchy look is hands down my favourite… BEAUTIFUL bomber alert!

This outfit if perfect.

Jewellery Blogging: Thomas Nayler

I have a definite jewellery obsession… accessorising is serious fun! So when I finally received my belated graduation nameplate necklace, I decided to grab the chance of getting some more fashion blogging and social media experience too.

Before starting writing for littleblackdress.co.uk, I was originally going to do PR for Thomas Nayler Jewellery. In the end I decided that for now I’d like to work in fashion writing full time, and work on a jewellery brand’s blog and social media in my spare time.

I can honestly say I’ve worn my nameplate necklace designed by Thomas Nayler almost every single day since I got it, and it’s fast become my favourite piece of jewellery. Since my most recent blog post for thomasnaylerjewellery.wordpress.com, I’m now badly craving a Lana-esque double finger ring too. Watch this space!

After connecting the brand to Polyvore, I created the below Celeb Summer Style Steal: Lana Del Rey set, featuring a Thomas Nayler personalised double finger ring and nameplate necklace.
