Accessorising with socks is one of my favourite satorical tricks, of sorts. I feel like socks are massively under-appreciated and I take it as a personal mission to bring light to the possibilities of the cosy footwear. I’m looking forward to rocking thigh highs this winter and expect to see some boldly printed numbers peeping out of my boots on the daily.
I picked this donut printed pair in the men’s section at Primark because brilliance knows no boundaries. They came in a 5 pack with other food-themed socks and my excitement levels hit an all time high.

As a vegan I don’t get many opportunities to indulge in donuts but thankfully there are a fair few ways to incorporate the circular sweet treat into your get up.

So, super important question: what socks are you wearing today?
It’s happening. Here in London it’s officially coat weather time. I’ve been layering like a boss but, man, it’s getting frosty! I grabbed this slouchy blazer style coat in Primark the other day and I’m every bit smitten. The print clashing addict in me is excited to style this number. Winter coats are usually block colours, typically black, but that’s no fun! It’s cosy, long (yay extra warmth), a little bit Heathers, and looks beyond rad with this pink stole I nabbed too!
All signs are pointing to a happy winter together for this coat and I! Oh, and at $30 it was total steal compared to the many non-vegan friendly, hefty price tagged ones out there.
Yeah, every outfit needs to be completed with a Barbie shoe necklace, ammirite?!
Damn, is anyone else excited to bust out beanies and scarfs. I know I’ll be sobbing with frostbite into them but jeeze, everyone looks so cute in beanies!
As a long-time Barbie obsessive, I’m a big fan of injecting the odd explicit reference to my main gal in outfits. Heck, I’m known for making jewellery with her limbs, shoes, and facial features! There’s just something about that gal. Who knows if I’m even being ironic anymore.
I picked this denim shirt up at the East End thrift store the other Saturday and since then it’s become a solid part of my identity. Anything that adds a touch of grunge to an outfit, or has the ability to down play a bold Barbie printed body con dress is a must-have.

Ahh we never really grow up, right? Remember those weird plastic Barbie shoes you’d play in when you were a kid and it was still acceptable? Well this is the Grown Up Serious Adult version.
Look, I just don’t do monochrome. Sure, I’ll go black and white but you’d better make sure I’m surrounded by colour! That’s what is so freaking great about all the alleyways around East London – they’re like pockets of colour.
This is my sister’s dress (again). I can do black and white, I swear. I just have to make everything else super colourful to balance it out.
Oh, and I’m always partial to a good pink lip! It’s a great way to add colour to your get up in a really simple and not too garish way. But then again, I like garish.

Ahh, let’s just appreciate London for a minute shall we? It’s getting chilly but it’s still the biggest babe. There are still a billion things to do, see, and eat. Life is good.
