My wardrobe is like a game of Jenger. I have at least 2-3 pieces of clothing teetering on each lonely hanger. And that's when i tend to forget things I own or even recently purchased.

This weekend I had a mini clear out which I've sworn to do every so many months. That's when i came across my trusty leather pleated skirt from Warehouse. I bought it for New Years Eve last year and haven't had much wear out of it due to the fact its been playing hide & seek in my wardrobe. 
The leather skirt is probably a key item in most fashion forward wardrobes. Its a great Autumn/Winter piece which can be dressed up with statement jewellery and shoes boots or dressed down with a casual loose jumper and simple accessories. 

I paired it with my ultimate favorite Marc By Marc Jacobs rose gold watch and my burgundy bat wing jumper which is also from Warehouse, its a loose fit with fitted sleeves. I always find it to be the perfect jumper that i can throw on over a body con skirt for a more casual look or tuck it in with a cinched in waist skirt. The jumper shoulders are so detailed if you were going more for a casual look you probably wouldn't need a necklace as it slightly takes the attention away.

Winter Fur! Ive been looking for an Autumn/Winter jacket for a while now, trying to pick out a style that'll suit near enough everything in my wardrobe and honestly.....the trusty leather biker just kept cropping up.
 I bought this jacket from River Island, and i have to admit i wasn't always the biggest fan of faux fur but this coat completely changed my mind on the animalistic cozy fluff of a collar. The fit is pretty perfect and the fur is detachable so big tick for versatility!

Ive mentioned previously that maxi/midi skirts are taking over a big chunk of my wardrobe this season and i had to get my hands on this army khaki pleated skirt from MissGuided. Most of skirts are plain and this skirt is a great piece for adding texture as well as being very flattering with its paper bag waist.

The alphabet skeleton graphic t-shirt is a favorite of mine at the minute. I bought it from Zara a while back and I've definitely got my moneys worth of wear out of it. Only recently have i fallen dangerously in love with Zara's TRF section, they have some great unique pieces and designer lookalikes. The bag is another purchase from Zara and is such a great bag for everyday or even going out at night as it isn't too big or bulky and still has enough room to shove the usual crap in!

Skulls, Crosses, Peace signs, statement necklaces and metallic touches, Claire's Accessories has stepped up its game and they kindly sent a package filled with just a few exciting pieces from their large jewellery collection. But this was only after I had taken a trip to the shop to pick up my usual essentials and ended up buying a hoard of skull, cross and turquoise stone jewellery which i tweeted about.

Claire's Accessories is probably know to most of us as the teenage hangout we all use to go to grab our rebel wearing school accessories or quirky stationary years ago and i have to admit I've never thought different until i had a proper look around and realized how much its change and if you like "grown up".

A lot of the jewellery are seasonal must haves and trend setters like popular detailing of spikes, skulls, flowers, peace signs, turquoise, crosses and tribal patterned pieces. They've covered it all from girlie to grunge with some unique pieces in between like the bow bracelet in a rosy gold colour.

I was surprised when i'd received the package of how much stuff they'd actually sent me, not to mention that a lot of the piece where what i had been eyeing up in the shop already. A couple of my favourite pieces are the turquoise stone peace chain and the spike and skull earrings not the mention the statement nude flower necklace, this was actually the first piece i wore with a white polka dot top, its a plain style top so this necklace added detail and attention.

I'm always one for changing my style so the fact they sent me a mixture of "pretty" and "hippie" and "grunge" is pretty darn great to go with my ever changing wardrobe!
