fifty

Going on holiday soon? Well, whilst you have your Fifty Shades of Grey packed in your handbag, let’s not forget summer’s must-have essential – a pair of shades to protect those peeps of yours! And who needs one pair, when The Live Scene has fifty of them at your disposal?

Even though we only have one month of summer left (boo!), we still need a pair of sunglasses to see us through the remainder of August (get what I did there?) Here, I have found a range of shades – from designer to high street, from £1 to £200 – there is a pair to suit everyone’s needs!

My favourites have to be the two pairs of Karen Walker shades, as well as the classic Chanel-inspired half tint sunglasses, as seen on the likes of style icons Mary-Kate Olsen and Nicole Richie. You can get these designer dupes from eBay for only $9.99!

Sunglasses are not only a summer fashion essential, but they also protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays from the sun. These blue Arnette Agent sunglasses are perfect if you want to have a cool down by the pool, whilst at the same time protecting your peepers! Whilst some shades may look fun – who can forget Paris Hilton’s and Kanye West’s trademark ‘raver’ sunglasses – you have got to remember that unless you want crow’s feet or eye damage – and trust me, who wants that? You’ve got to care for those beautiful eyes of yours! And with these fifty shades at your disposal, you can look good and feel fine at the same time!

It has been yet another busy week in the fashion cupboard, with more returns, calling PRs and all of us attending photoshoots. I attended the High Street Hottest shoot on Wednesday, and I have to say that I really enjoyed it! It was such a nice relaxing day away from the office (or should I say cupboard?), and all I had to do was steam the clothes and dress the model. It was an insightful day on how photoshoots work, and I was so happy that I had the opportunity to be a part of it! I was talking to the person who runs the studio we shot the photoshoot in, and it made me think that after university next year I want to spend the summer living and working aboard – with France, Italy and Spain being potential places – now all I need to do is save up and work!

Next year’s summer plans aside, this four day weekend is going to consist of catching up on sleep and celebrating Ali’s birthday on Tuesday, which should be fun – I think a trip to Nandos and the cinema is on the cards! I hope you all have a great weekend wherever you are, and look out for my week in photos post tomorrow!

Here is a little feature about some of the outfits I have worn in the past week!

Enjoy!

OUTFIT ONE

I wore this outfit for a night out. And yes, I do practically live in shorts & tights!

Blouse – Topshop

Elephant Necklace – Republic

High Waisted Shorts – Primark

Tights – Primark

Boots – New Look

OUTFIT TWO

This outfit is a bit different to what I would usually wear. I wanted to wear this dress but I didn’t want my arms on show (I am developing a serious case of bingo wings do to my current craving for chocolate!) So I decided to place this dress on top of my Topshop blouse (in the above outfit). I felt sort of smart although I look like a 12-year-old but oh well, I’ll be a stylish 12-year-old!

Blouse (Worn underneath Dress) – Topshop

Dress – River Island

Necklace – Sour Cherry

Tights – Primark

Boots (not pictured) – Vintage

OUTFIT THREE

I went to Liverpool for the day, and I was dying to wear my new French Connection striped tunic! It was a warm day, so I decided to complete my outfit with  my cropped blazer from River Island and my gold moustache ring from Topshop. Et voila!

Cropped Blazer – River Island

Navy Stripy Top – French Connection

Necklace – Sour Cherry

Moustache Ring – Topshop

OUTFIT FOUR

And finally, I had my first day as a Republic sales assistant yesterday. So I decided to go for a casual look and sport my new vintage Levi’s from Urban Oufitters! It was a good first day – I spent most of it doing delivery, but my feet didn’t half ache after my shift!

‘I Love Chaos’ Vest – Republic

Job Lanyard – Republic

Ripped Denim Levi’s – Vintage

Tights – Primark

Tights – Primark
