Fashion Tag

 Loved doing this tag!  If you decide to do it too, let me know :)

What are your favourite stores to shop for clothes?
I like the usual suspects! I go to New Look, H&M, Topshop, River Island, ASOS, Bank & Republic (RIP) for my clothes.  There are some shops I'd love to try but can't really afford it atm.  I keep telling myself that when I have a proper scientist job I'll go mental and go to all the shops I like.  I'd love to be a regular at Vivienne Westwood and one-off shops.

What are your favourite stores to shop for accessories?
I love going online for my accessories! Well, for jewellery anyway.  I love Primark too!  They are so cheap its hard to say no.  I'm a big scarf person, and I'll buy them from anywhere as long as they are pretty!

What are your favourite stores to shop for shoes?
I have a few! I love Frasers when I'm spending a lot because their selection is unrivaled.   Dorothy Perkins do amazing boots, they last for ages.  And of course, Primark!  I'm much more of a boot person than a shoe person and I tend to stick to the same brands because I know I'll like them.   Schuh do a great selection of boots and shoes too.  I also love a shop called Hell Fire, it does amazing rock / punk shoes and I can't get enough of them.

What are your favourite trends at the moment?
I try not to buy into trends!  If I like something, then I like it.  If I don't like it, I won't wear it to blindly follow fashion.  I tend to stick to dark clothing, blacks or greys with the occasional splash of colour.  I also love things to be studded or ripped, but I liked it years before it became cool haha!

What are some fashion trends you loathe?
Hahaha oh sooo many. I bloody hate black waist coats on girls, with jeans etc.  Why?  Why?!  I also hate most white clothing.   I'm sorry, I just do.  I hate anything brown more than I hate white things. Also, not sorry.  And all these girls wearing beanies that stick up about 10 inches from the top of their heads.... can you not?

Are you a jewellery person? Which do you prefer: bracelets, earrings, rings or necklaces?
I love jewellery!  About 95% of it is silver as I'm not a massive gold fan.  I love long, loose necklaces but dont wear them every day.  I always wear at least one bracelet every day though, I adore charm bracelets. They are just sooo pretty.

Name a few items at the top of your fashion wish list of the moment.
I want a black pair of Doc Martins and some new studded biker boots from River Island. And a bag or two ;) And my Uggs have seen better days...

Most expensive item you own in your wardrobe?
My Tag Heuer watch, which was a gift from my dad for my 20th birthday.  Then my Jimmy Choos, which were a 21st birthday present from my dad.  I'd love a designer handbag.   I have a Jimmy Choo for H&M bag but I'd like a proper Jimmy Choo one... or a Chanel one.

How much do you typically spend on fashion? (Are you a huge splurgier or a thrifty shopper?)
I am a mix :) I have both expensive things and cheap things in my wardrobe.

List 5 wardrobe essentials that you feel every girl should possess.
Biker Boots, black skinny jeans, a leather biker jacket, a little black dress and a black Mac jacket. Can I have 6? Everyone needs fabulous black high heels too.
Hahaha just realized thats a lot of black in there!

What is your favourite season, in terms of fashion?
I love Autumn / Winter. I'm not one for flashing a lot of flesh and I love layers / scarves / boots so those seasons suit me best.

What would you say your style is typically like?
I would say its 'rocky' but not as much as I'd like it to be.  I think being at uni all day and in labs where my clothing is so restricted (no shoes, exposed flesh etc) has dampened my fashion spirits.   This time next year it'll all be different, just you wait n see.

What is your go-to outfit for lazy/comfy/casual days when you just feel like throwing something on?
Leggings and a hoodie.  Or a tracksuit.  Ultimate comfort.

Do you have any influential style icons?
Kat Von D and Kelly Osbourne! Total babes.

What is your favourite nail-polish at the moment, or just some nail-polish colours/brands you love?
I love black polish the best (are you surprised) and I don't mind what brand because they are all rubbish! Every black I've ever tried chips so fast.

What is your favourite fragrance?
Givenchy Very Irresistable and Noa.  Beautiful smells.  I also love Chanel no5, I Love Love by Moshino, Cerutti 1881, Georgio Armani She and Black XS.  I love wee inexpensive brands too, like Paris, Britney and Jordan.
