High Street Haul August 2016

High Street Haul August 2016

My most popular blogs and vlogs are my high street fashion hauls. You all seem to love the items I buy from Zara so this haul is dedicated to my fellow Zara adorers. I recently had a test shoot with the talented photographer Vaughan Treyvellan. A test shoot is basically an opportunity for a model to update their portfolio with images that are there to help them get booked on the next job or simply get the model called into a casting in the first place. I have been working on shoots and filming a lot lately which has meant that my portfolio is predominately jobbing photos, which are great but are obviously there to promote the product rather than me, myself.
When a model has a test shoot booked in they need to take along a load of clothes to shoot in. I love this opportunity. I get to embrace my inner stylist inspired by my interview with Clare Frith. I go into any shop I like and treat it as my dream wardrobe. I pick up absolutely everything and anything that takes my fancy and buy it all!! No lie!! I then stuff it all in a suitcase and head to my photoshoot. The hard part is trying not to hurt your bank balance by keeping every single item that you buy. Below you will see a few of the items that I did end up keeping.


I adore this jacket as it has a touch of smart Chanel-esque vibe to it but is also a bit of a statement at the same time The jacket is super tactile and you will simply have to fondle the embroidered flowers that are loosely attached. Considering the amount of work that has gone into making this jacket I would say it is a complete bargain.

This coat makes me incredibly happy and actually a bit giddy about Christmas. Under this coat I’m imagining a short black dress, black high heels and pearl earrings for my Christmas theatre trip. This coat will immediately dress up any outfit.

Calvin Klein have gone crazy for social media campaigns lately and it seems everyone and their mum are obsessing over their Calvin’s like it’s the 90s all over again. This “outfit” would be perfect for a night in with Netflix. …that reminds me I have an epic Netflix Picks list for you currently being lined up.

This t’shirt is made for jumping with joy. I have worn this t’shirt a couple of times and am constantly asked where I bought it from. You would never believe it was a cheapy tee from H&M…go and buy one before they run out.
