Crazy about Cagecity!

I've recently found out about the gem that is Cagecity. The styling and photography throughout is top notch. On the website they showcase their great brands Eviltwin, Minkpink, Stylestalker and Finders Keepers. Finders Keepers founded in 2009 and is loved all over New Zealand, Australia and now the UK. If your looking for items with sexy cut outs, mesh details and out there pattern be sure to check out Finders Keepers. Stylestalker was founded in 2008 by fashion lovers Sue-Ann San and Rachel Zeilic. The brand creates simple yet effective pieces easily with cut out details and block colours. Brought to life in 2005, Minkpink  is an Australian brand known for its vintage inspired pieces with some modern twists. Eviltwin is the sister brand of Minkpink the collection is inspired by grunge and punk. This can be seen throughout with faded colours, tie dye looking materials & studded details. But, don't forget to check out the selection of clothes on Handmade and Vintage. Handmade are created by up aspiring designers and are one off exclusives. 

Here are just a few of my favourites off the website;
The printed feather neckline adds lovely detail to the simple black and white t shirt - Handmade: £26 // These black studded shorts will go with anything (even as part of an evening outfit teamed with heels and a nice shirt - Eviltwin: £65 // I'm love with this paisley print shirt which put with a black skater skirt or denim shorts would be perfect! - Minkpink: £40

The cut outs at the waist of this dress add some lovely, delicate detail whilst showing a cheeky bit of skin, great for nights out! - Finders Keepers: £85 // The bold black and silver pattern is sure to get you lots of attention - Stylestalker: £95 // I need this denim pinafore dress it would definitely go with my scalloped shirt or even my spotted blouse. I also love the idea of teaming it with a pair of Doc Martens! Oh and not to forget it's a great price too - Clothes: £22

I can't wait to see more from Cagecity and it's brands. I need to get a weekend job so I can buy, buy, buy.

Festival fashion

cotton circle broderie shell top-Topshop-£28 / petite bleach hot pants-Topshop-£28 / perforated leather backpack-Topshop-£75 Pink Floyd jersey dress-H&M-£15 MOTO bleach long leg dungarees-Topshop-£55 ink jet stripe crop top-Topshop-£16 clean biker jacket-Topshop-£55 eyelash metal arm sunglasses-Topshop-£18

Unfortunately, I'm not going to any festivals this summer due to lack of funds but, if I was I'd wear things like the products above. 

I'd wear the yellow broderie top with the bleach hot pants and knee high socks so my wellies don't rub. I really like the outfit as it looks quite sixties like. I think the dungarees would look great with the stripey crop top keeping it laid back, footwear wise I'd wear converses (only if it's not muddy, which chances are it will be). The leather back pack is very pricey but, I'm just showing it as an example, something like this would be perfect as it looks good and will fit everything you need for a day full of festival frolics. The Pink Floyd jersey dress is great to just quickly sling on and rush out of your tent in, obviously with your wellies. Finally, the sunglasses are great for making a statement.

What are your favourite festival styles?


Trying to get into blogger so any advice from people reading this would be very helpful. Any advice as to how to get my blog seen more, how to get followers and how to create more interest in what I'm post.
