Olivia Pope Inspired Style | LOOKBOOK

October 10 2014

Hello everyone! I’m currently on holiday (Lagos, Nigeria), but I pre-filmed and edited this video for you. I’m a huge fan of Scandal and Olivia Pope’s style so I thought it’d be fun to do a Lookbook inspired by her. I hope you enjoy it. Which look is your favourite? I’m thinking of turning this into a series, what do you think? I could do a couple other on-screen sirens? Thinking it’d be fun, and i’ll get to experiment with my style a little…even try more colour, textures, patterns etc! Hope you enjoy the video, and be sure to click… Read More »

How To Be Organized (8 Tips)

September 24 2014

Hey there loves. I uploaded a video on my channel all about Organisation*, and thought to get a post up too. Might I add, this also gave me an excuse to arrange my little bits and take a neat photo! Ha! So, organisation takes time, but when you form a habit of it, life becomes a little easier. Here are some tips I hope you find useful, and please feel free to share yours in the comments too. 1. Organise your space. This helps you know what you have. Get rid of things you don’t use and give the things you… Read More »

In Transition

August 31 2014

ZARA Coat | TOPSHOP Jeans | ASOS Tee | CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Heels Funny how just a couple of days ago I was seriously considering buying a portable air conditioner, as my fan was no longer doing it for me, but now, I’ve found myself in my garage looking through my autumn/winter stash hoping to find my favourite jumpers and sweaters. The weather is cooling down! The temptation to put away all summer clothes and begin to don all autumn clothes has crept in, and with the stores already geared up for the season ahead, it’s hard not to get excited…… Read More »

A few favourite things… and a Hello!

August 25 2014

Pssst! Notice anything different?? A brand new Blog Design! Woohoo! I am so excited to bring you the new Shirley’s Wardrobe. In the last months I’ve been working on making a few changes here and there, to be able to express my creativity more fluidly. Shirley’s Wardrobe as you all know has been part of my life for a very long time, and it has evolved so much since the first day it begun. It started off as an offshoot to my YouTube Channel, where I’d share little snippets of my life, photo diaries and such. Today it is recognised… Read More »

Sometimes Phone Pics…

August 6 2014

I love that I can achieve such great shots with my little old iPhone! As much as I love to carry around my big DSLR, sometimes it’s more practical to have my phone on hand to capture those instant moments for my instagram and other social media. As I write this post, I’m sitting on my floor, in a pair of paint cladded leggings and tee! …I’ve been painting! Planned extensions and redecorations underway of my home, as well as a new home office. As you can imagine I’ve been running helter-skelter trying to find bits and pieces to fit… Read More »

TOPSHOP Jeans / H&M Crop Top / ZARA Shirt (Similar Here) & Purse / RIVER ISLAND Heels I’ve always liked that whole “tie my shirt round my waist” look. It takes me back to late 90s/early 00s when I would do this with literally every shirt or jacket I had and I would hop about happily in my trainers! Ahh the kid days! Today I’ve gone for a more grown up version, paired a check shirt with an all white ensemble, my go to minimal heels, and a pop of red with my purse (serving as a clutch). I love… Read More »

Back to Business

July 17 2014

ASOS Mac / AMERICAN APPAREL Dress / RIVER ISLAND Heels / ZARA Bag It feels good to finally be posting again after my long break from the internet world. I also recently had a life detox and talked about it in this video, check it out when you get the chance. Lots happening behind the scenes and I’m very excited to bring fresh new content on the blog and YouTube channel, so keep your eyes peeled. This outfit was from last week. It was a cooler day for summer so I kept it simple with an LBD and Mac… perfect… Read More »

L.A. Photo Diary

July 17 2014

The last time I posted was right before I jetted off to LA, and boy that was a WHILE ago. If you follow me on Instagram or my Vlog Channel you’d have seen little peaks here and there into my trip, which was awesome. I spent the most part of it resting and just basking in the sun we get so little of here in Britain. I also took the liberty to slow down a little on vlogging/blogging after my week of YouTube events and networking. Shopping in Hollywood was amazing, beach days out in Malibu were relaxing and I… Read More »

New Bikini

May 29 2014

H&M Bikini & Sunglasses / BARRY M Grapefruit Polish / MAC All Fired Up Lippy / TOPSHOP Sandals “I have too many black, white and grey clothes.” Said by me, NEVER. I love my signature palette to death, and I didn’t hesitate to extend it to my beach/pool wardrobe! Haha! I loveeee the chevron details, and the bottoms are high waisted…giving some of that 50′s glamour, I’m so down with that!But don’t worry, I also picked up some bright and beautiful colours too, which I’ll be sharing on the blog soon! I feel like I’ll have an excuse to step… Read More »

Feline in Suburbia

May 15 2014

TOPSHOP Leather Skirt / H&M Crop Top / ZARA Blazer / KURT GEIGER Heels / ZARA Bag / RIVER ISLAND Accessories Cat Eye (behind the shades!), check. Leather, check. Leopard print, check, check, check! Today I felt like a Feline in Suburbia! I actually dreamt about these shoes last night, and I woke up with the itch to don them today. What is it about leopard print that makes us girls go ‘ooooo’?! I thought it would be the perfect little accent to this leather skirt and crop number. This white blazer just set off the dark hues nicely. I… Read More »
