ImageI went and saw Beyoncé at the O2 a couple of weeks ago. As ever, she was magnificent. Truly awe-inspiring. A glorious, gorgeous reminder that everything I do is actually a little bit crap. Lol :-p

I wore:

– Splotchy dress from ASOS

– Sequinned jacket – Topshop

-Black tights and booties – M&S

(Excuse the posey posing, I took these after the show, when I might have been a little tipsy…)

– The What would Beyoncé do?! badge was a freebie at a comedy show of the same name last year. (V funny!)

– BCBGeneration make-your-own bracelet

-Teardrop ring – Mikey (I miss Mikey, does it still exist?!)

– Mahoosive earrings – I bought these when Crazy in Love came out (HOW was that 11 years ago?!), as she had a similar pair in the video. I don’t remember where I got them from, I just remember scouring the internet for them (this was long before I had a computer of my own and before internet shopping was a thing that I did) because I simply had to have them. I wore them every time I went anywhere for years! I still love them, actually. And they are not as monstrously heavy as one might imagine. (I mean, they’re not feathers but I have worse!)

I never really realised how much of a fashion influence Beyoncé is/has been on me until I wrote this post, but this is what I wore at the weekend, inspired by her in the video for XO (seriously obsessed with her white tank/jeans/all-the-gold look!):

???????????????????????????

(Rad T-Shirt from Express in NY, jeans from Monsoon, gold necklaces and earrings are mostly vintage and/or gifts)

And here I am, over a decade ago, embarrassing myself whilst channelling her other Crazy in Love outfit at a fancy dress party:

B-TBT B2

Only our mothers can tell us apart…

…but I’m feeling twenty twooo-oooooo!

On Sunday night, I went to see Taylor Swift at the O2 arena with one of my best friends. I kind of had an inkling that I wasn’t the target demographic (I’m 27) on account of a.) it’s Taylor Swift and 90% of her songs contain the word “cheerleader” and b.) the O2 had sent me an email a couple of days before informing me that while flags with flagpoles are not permitted, banners with fairy lights are.

*Styletterie falls to knees in relief*

After we finished laughing over the ridiculous notion that anyone, let alone a bunch of 13 year olds, would put enough effort into a banner as to actually festoon it with lights, my friend and I decided to go all out and reclaim our youth by dressing up as everyone’s favourite country cutie and singing our hearts out without shame. Alcopops may also have been invloved.

This is what I wore:

Image

-Frilly floral dress, Monsoon

-Floral denim shirt, Zara

-Cowboy boots, my sister’s from New Mexico, although she reliably informs me that R.Soles is a good (but expensive!) place to buy cowboy boots in London

-Extremely uncomfortable, barely visible gold fishnet tights, Accessorize

-Hearty earrings, one of my favourite pairs, Rachel Roy at Macy’s from when I went to NYC in 2011.

-BCBGeneration bracelet (again!), I can’t tell you how much losery fun I have deciding what to write on it everyday!

I really need a hobby.
