For my first 'Mint, Skint, Payday' post I went for the shearling jacket. I saw the Acne one on Pinterest first, cried a bit over it, and then made it my business to track down some cheaper alternatives.
 I haven't blogged properly in a long time, moving to another country and having all the distractions/stress of trying to settle in I completely lost my shopping mojo. I honestly did not give two shits about fashion, the shops here are alright but there is no real 'high street' like in the UK, and since I don't have a lot of money I really missed my Primark (yeah i'll admit it, no shame here)

HOWEVER, I then remembered where I was from... England, West Yorkshire, and what are Yorkshire people good at? yep.. being cheap as fuck! So whilst I may not be raking in the cash right now, my fashion boner is back and I'm getting back in the stores and online and I will be sure to share my new bargains. 

Oh, and the jackets you can find here..

If anyone has any requests for a particular item on a  'Mint.Skint.Payday' post please let me know, 'cause I have a bit of a talent for finding stuff if it exists even in the deepest darkest corners of the internet.

coat:zara//jeans:h&m//trainers:nike roshe

Just a quick one, finally winter is setting in and I get to wear my favorite mannish coat from Zara. This jacket is awesome for smartening up an everyday casual look, great if you usually dress like a bit of a scruff like me. All the usual high-street big hitters are stocking manly coats this fall, H&M is my personal favorite especially for those of us on a bit of a winter wardrobe budget.

Don't Fall

I hate summer fashion. When it's too hot I dress for comfort, so after 3 months of denim shorts, tanks and sneakers (which I never thought I would get sick of) I am actually buzzing that the weather is starting to turn nasty and this is the kind of transitional outfit I will be looking forward to wearing.

The Details

Here's a little inspiration before the weekend, the styling in this video blows my mind, filmed in Langa Cape town, South Africa. Styled by Ty Hunter. Perfection!

Eye candy for Monday, let's get inspired for the week ahead.


So, just discovered that Zara online does ship within Canada. And I'm losing my shit over these heels ($83)

Got this nail polish from the new Revlon neon collection, it comes with a white polish on one end of the bottle so you pop that on first then its suppose to make the colour on top really stand out... I didn't bother with the white, too impatient, but I like how the orange came out after two coats. 



Its late, I'm bored and tired but here are some things I have been pondering about lately (style-wise): hats into June, nike wedges, all white outfits and piercing my ears a whole lotta times.

I'm a big time jewellery fiend, I would also make a pretty epic magpie and since I'm such a cheap bastard I managed to hunt down all of this which cost under $30. Chunky gold chain and rings came from Forever21 and the earrings from Aldo Accessories.  I have tiny tiny stupid fingers so I always look for adjustable rings, but I find H&M and Forever21 usually fit me, also another tip for my fellow scrawny pawed friends is to use toe rings and ear cuffs as above knuckle rings!

Fucking very cool look-book, lackluster collection. IMO. But please tell me if you think I'm missing something here. Still love Stampd La forever though.

 Topshop Joni Jeans//Brandy Melville T//Aldo Sunglasses//Converse High Tops

Had another mooch about the shops in Vancouver on Tuesday and my cousin took me to this cute little store called Brandy Melville, I say little but apparently not- a quick glance at the Instagram and 90,000+ Facebook likes tells me this store is a pretty big deal this side of the pond. Have any of my British followers heard of it before? Anyway, its pretty cool and I fell in love with all of their super soft slogan tees. I decided to treat myself to the top above as it was only $18. Now I know what you're thinking, 'why the fuck did she buy it in baby size??' well no actually a lot of the tees come in one size only which I guess says a lot about the customer demographic (young/skinny?) I'm off to Vegas next week for a few days and thought this would look cool over a bikini, but for the sake of an outfit post I tried it on with my high waisted Joni jeans from Topshop and it just about borderlines appropriate for a 25 year old.

necklace: H&M 
shorts: Primark//bag:Alexander Wang//tee:Topshop//trainers:River Island
top to bottom:ASOS//Ebay//H&M//ASOS
vest & shoes:Zara//shorts:Urban Outfitters//bag:H&M

Since outfit posts have kind of had to go out the window for the moment (I'm too preoccupied trying to sort my life out to dress decently) I'll have to bore you with this nonsense... So I'm a little bit besotted with this whole outfit grid thing. I love the instagram @outfitgrid, its all menswear which I'm obsessed with because they have the BEST accessories. But I think the girls oughta play too, so that's what I'm attempting here. Its also a great way to put outfits together, so when the weather turns nice and I'm ready to get out of my sweatpants/slippers/jeans/trainers rotation I shall be wearing both these get ups. 

I also wanted to show you my new neck candy! I'm back on statement necklaces since they are a great way to dress up a boring outfit e.g- tshirts and jeans (my staples!) The ID chain from Ebay, which is the closest to the Celine version can be found by searching 'chunky ID chain' which will bring up tonnes of tasty results to choose from. Mine is actually plastic which I was kinda pissed about when it arrived but it means it won't tarnish.
