Hello my lovelies, so again I am sorry it's been long time no see however I am back with a bang (aka a little competition) today which I hope you will all enjoy. Some of you may remember a styling post I did last year (again featuring all black...it's habit) for FashionChick showing what I would wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week. The prize? A chance to be flown to Amsterdam for two days jam packed with fashion surprises and goodies! Sounds perfect right, my thoughts exactly. 

Now if you want to be in with a chance to win this trip of a lifetime you will have to be super speedy as today is the cut off day (well done Vic) however don't let that deter you as all you have to do is tell/show Fashion Chick what you would wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week and 'why all eyes will be on you during your Amsterdam Adventure'. Click this link for more information and good luck (open me).

So what would I wear? Well that is simple in true stonesgotstyle fashion I would wear black...and a lot of it. Now yes I hear your cries of but it's summer Vickie how about a bit of colour so I have answered your pleas with a well placed (if I do say so myself) pop of orange to complete the sports luxe vibe of this look.

Now as most of you may know ASHISH have just collaborated with Topshop to create a fierce spring/summer collection and as soon as my little pupils set eyes on the stunner that is this censored mesh tee I just knew that would be the piece I centred my outfit on. This is how sports luxe became the key trend within my look. I am loving the relaxed cut of the tee juxtaposed with the unexpectedness of the glittery censorship crosses. To keep with the sports luxe vibe I decided to go with this summers staple shoe (also the comfiest perfect for running from show to show) the mule in this metallic silver and to protect my modesty I decided on a extremely relaxed sports style crop, no one wants a nip slip with all those camera's around! 

I did have to remind myself at this point that I was off to Amsterdam Fashion week and not to Tesco for some milk so out came this ultra chic and tough leather look A line skirt I've been seeing everyone in recently. Let's just all admire it's simple beauty. Accessorise with lots of chunky Gothic silver rings and some oh so stylish cat eye sunglasses for a rock and roll meet sports luxe lovechild clash and of course add a pop of colour (another big SS4 trend) with a simple orange clutch and matching oh so on style orange lip and bobs your uncle, fanny's your aunt and your look in almost...almost complete. 

But of course you can't just have the perfect outfit, oh no you have to contemplate that morning, just got out of bed...I've been travelling mane! All of those slightly worrying elements considered I just had to go for THE classic sleek ponytail, you don't have to worry about your hair sticking in your face for those Fashion Week snaps and to me it just finishes off this sports luxe outfit perfectly. Simple throw on some statement earrings for intrigue and your ready to go. 

I hope you all enjoyed this look, let me know what trends you've been loving this spring/summer in the comments below & don't forget too leave me a link if you decide to bust out a last minute entry!

The White Jean

Hello my little butternut squashes...

The White Mom Jean

Sequin Halter Crop- This is a Love Song
White Mom Jeans- Own The Runway
Purple Lipstick in shade Psychedelic- Etsy
Holographic Diamond Bag- Motel Rocks
Blue faux Leather Jacket- Zara
Holographic Cleated Mules- Daisy Street

Right guys, so let me just say that I am so sorry for the lateness of this post, if you follow me on Twitter (@stonesgotstyle)then you may have seen that unfortunately I've been having a few health issues that have prevented me from posting as regularly. I am really sorry about this fact as this is what I LOVE to do & I love to connect with you guys. Hopefully this should be sorted soon and I can get back to schedule (I know right as if I've ever had a schedule...let's just pretend shall we). 
Admin aside, today I wanted to bring you another spring/summer styling post featuring an item I have a love/hate relationship with. However do any of you ever do this? Kinda hate an item, swear never to EVER wear it then get sweept along with the fashion blogging world into kinda needing it? No...just me then! Well that is a pretty accurate story of what has happened here. White jeans you see have always been (and apparently always will be) a summer wardrobe essential (those and white linen trousers which you will ACTUALLY legit never ever see me in). Now I've always had a thing about white jeans, they were OK on other people but for me it was always a bit of a dare I say it...tacky trend.

I dunno bare with me here, I mean come on I'm a girl that lives in all black and a leopard never changed it's spots (that easily). I also happen to be a serial spiller...also sorry to bring it up but erm hello periods! You know that no matter how much you plan sometimes those little buggers just come creeping up on you and erm white jeans?

However this year something amazing has happened what with the arrival of my all time favourite style of denim hitting the big time...mom jeans.  You see some how white mom jeans don't freak me out so much. Maybe it's the lose fit, maybe it's the synced in waist but the whole idea of a distressed white mom jean has suddenly become 'chic' to me and is literally all I can think about purchasing!

So to cut a long winded if not slightly disturbing story short, today I thought I would ease myself back into the blogging world with how I'd style white mom jeans the Marmite of the summer fashion world. p.s I happen to friggin love marmite!
Until Next Time

Within You- Abetwix

Happy Bank Holiday Weekend!

Graphic Print Tee c/o- Abetwix
Lace Detail Shorts- Miss Selfridge
Vintage 90s Cardigan- Urban Outfitters
Boots- Depop
Lipstick-  Topshop shade Ruthless
Today I am finally back with a super exciting OOTD for you all. Now recently I was introduced to the brand Abetwix who hand paint and design amazing graphic t-shirts & jumpers. Abetwix is a relatively new brand sold via Asos Marketplace which offers (in their own words) "striking prints and specially selected vintage (pieces), its about mixing it all up for a really unique look". Now you know I'm a girl that's all about backing those beautifully unique independent businesses, we've got to support each other here guys. So I was extremely happy to receive this geometric triangle t-shirt to style for you all.

I love the unique pattern created by the interlocking triangles so I wanted to keep the focus on this motif. Clearly that meant sticking to my favourite colour's...black, black and more black. I love how the print of the t-shirt allows for it to be tucked into high waited items so of course I went for my usual five million pairs of tights and high waisted Miss Selfridge shorts combo. I then threw on this (much neglected) vintage 'Grandad' jumper from Urban Outfitters yonks ago before deciding I preferred it wrapped around my waist in an effortless (if not well thought of) 90s style.  The entire outfit then felt a little flat & lacking my usual vampy style...so I reached for these super high platform boots I purchased via Depop (click here to check out my page) before finishing it all off with a half updo and dark purple lip.

Now I can safely say that these designs are not only unique but also blooming good quality I would definitely recommend. 

So what do you all think? I certainly hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know how you style a graphic tee in the comments below.

Until next time
