Unfortunately or my bank balance, Zara seems to manage to nail their footwear designs every single season without fail.... I'm thinking these dreamy numbers for this traumatic transition from our short lived  English Summer to our Baltic Winter. those lace ups would be incredible with a pair of chunky grey marl socks.

Go and treat yourself to some feet treats....easy on the eye and on the toes.

My current favourite headwear... my red fedora from River Island that lifts my essentially all black wardrobe.

Apologies for the crappy phone photos, I'll have a more photographically pleasing post up soon.

 (Links of london hidden gems at Manchester House)

So this post is a bit different for me, but here goes. I'm a bit of a recluse in the blogging world and don't really attend many blogging events. Don't ask me why... I'm definitely not too busy as 99.8% of my spare time is spent watching Netflix in bed, preferably with some form of biscuit in hand. But last week I was lucky enough to be invited for dinner with the guys at links of london to celebrate Manchester's hidden gems and this wasn't really something I could turn down. Obviously I jumped at the chance (especially as us Northern birds don't always have the time or the funds to travel to London for events) and I was so happy that I finally got to eat at Manchester House as I've been wanting to go for ages!

The food, the bar and the people were all completely amazing ( I took a particular shine to the bathroom as you can see, where I even found myself swooning over the soap dish... A SOAP DISH PEOPLE)  and it made me so happy to hear about places in my hometown that I've never even been to! If you live in manchester or if you fancy a trip, make sure you go to the places on the hidden gems map! Katie hand picked these all herself (hey Katie) and she's totally nailed it in my opinion. The Links hidden gems are some of my all time faves and contribute to why I love Manchester so much!

I also received a mini friendship bracelet that hasn't been off my wrist since and will definitely be coming on holiday with me to Croatia in the next few weeks (yep I'm going away again!)

Anyways, I think I'm going to be posting lots more than just outfit posts and include things that I do day to day from now on, just to keep Fashion-fade nice and eclectic as I always intended it to be!

Peace, love and dolphins.

Lots of Love,

So once again, I went MIA but I'm back with a distinct lack of hair (WAHH) and an all new looking fashion fade for you all.

Apart from being out of the country for about a month, I kind of fell out of love with blogging but I have a new improved layout and post style coming that feels so much more natural and a bit more "me" so fingers crossed you like it too!

I'll be posting lots more of my inspirations and general musings instead of just photos of the outfits I occasionally decide to share.... although, outfits are still kinda my thang so don't you worry.

Lots of love lovelies,

I've missed you all
