Hello everyone! It seems like it's been forever since i last wrote something personal~ on here! I seemed to have taken a bit of an unannounced hiatus last week, but i was starting to feel really unmotivated and a little shall we say 'blah' about my blog so i thought it would be best to just step back until i found my love for it again. I think it's very easy to be very critical of yourself and feel like what you do isn't good enough, but then i just have to remember that i was blogging silently for about 10 months before even one of you started to read it so i just need to stop worrying about what you guys want to see and just blog whatever the hell i want because well, i can, right?

Anyway, on to the outfit which I'm sure you're much more interested in. How amazing is this jumper? I'm so in love with it! Missguided have totally out done themselves on their A/W collection, it's all so perfect! They've very kindly offered one of you lovely lot a £50 voucher to spend on site. All you have to do is comment showing me what your favourite items are from the 'New in' section which will make up an A/W outfit. Giveaway will be up for one week and don't forget to leave your email in the comment so i can pass it on. I can't wait to see what you pick!

Even though it's only Monday I'm already counting down the days until Saturday, which i am now naming Vipxo day! I haven't been shopping since June, and believe me it's long over due as Leeds is so good for shopping. So i've decided to totally have a me day and treat myself. Mainly on Primark comfy socks though, they're the best! I'm also getting my hair done. This is really exciting and nerve-wracking(sp?) at the same time to be honest. It's been 3 years since i last went to an actual salon to get my hair done, I'm massively protective of it. It's not like I'm just getting it chopped either, I'm actually having quite a big change! So if you never see my face on here again, you'll know why.

So jealous of everyone at fashion week! I wish i could be there but normal life just gets in the way sometimes. But I'm loving everyone's coverage and the online shows. Hope you all have a good week whatever you're up to!

    Sandra from The Puzzle of Sandra's Life

  78. I love love love everything about this outfit!!

    My dream A/W outfit made up from the new in page consists of a rather large list but I love it anyways :)

    good luck everyone!

    Also your vipxo sounds like a much needed day of r&r, enjoy it!


  79. Great look Victoria :)
    Love the clutch

    PS: Illustration is on the way to you. Let me know when you receive it.

  80. The A/W New In items I have chosen are: - This comfy, cosy batwing jumper. A warm jumper is always a necessity in the colder months. - Paired with this pretty purple skirt. Of course this outfit would be worn with black tights and will be loving this look this A/W. - I have fallen in love with jacket. I love the new trend of leather mix jackets. The gold sleeves on this one is gorgeous and would go with every outfit. Also gold and black is perfect for A/W. - Lastly I have chosen these black heeled boots. These again would go with everything and a pair or ankle boots is vital every year. The height adds some (much needed) height and the stud detailing toughens up the cute outfit.

  81. Love that studded jumper and matching bracelet! Just bought myself one from ebay too. :)

    I love these leggings!

    would probably style it with just a basic tee (or probably jumper! This weather! )

    and these boots!
    Kyrie x

  82. Just saw your tweet about this, what an amazing giveaway! Just had a look on their website and my top picks for a autumn outfit areeeeeee -

    I love this top as embellished collars are very on trend at the moment and this burgundy colour is perfect for autumn! I think it would look amazing tucked into the jeans I have picked below :)

    I’d pick these jeans because I am obsessed with Khaki for the Autumn and you can’t go wrong with skinnies!

    I’d pop this jacket over the top to finish the outfit off. I love how it has the mix of tweet and leather – It remins me of the very popular army/leather jeackets that are everywhere at the moment

    In love with these cute little studded ankle boots – I featured some almost identical in my top picks for autumn wishlist, they are gorgeouuus!

    This shopper bag would finish my outfit off perfectly – it’s very Zara!

    I now officially want everything on their website haha!! I agree, they have totally out done themselves this season.

    Good luck everyone :)

    x x x

  83. I love the jumper its so cute! lovely colour.

    I just picked one cause i think its very important to have a dressy top so i chose the 'Arianna Stud & Mesh Panel Tee In Black' as it can be worn both day and night

  84. Katika Dogtooth Bodycon Dress and Aurore Suede Studded Slipper Shoes In Scarlet should make for a stylish statement.

  85. I'm jealous of your jumper! It's lovely, casual but the studs make it that lovely.
    I'm loving this giveaway - certainly like doing a bit of online browsing! My outfit would be:

    with these jeans:

    and these killer shoes:

    and just in case it gets a bit chilly, I'd throw this over it:



  86. Ah you look lovely Victoria - especially with the wee little grin! The hat is fab - I really want to get one for winter xx

  87. Love your outfit :)

    For the missguided comp I would pick:

    I'd tuck the front of the shirt into the shorts and leave the fringing hanging down under the jacket :)

  88. Hi hun, don't ever feel blah about your blog, it's fantastic :)

  97. You look amazing on these photo's. I totally agree, missguided have outdone themselves, so good at the moment!

    My entry for the giveaway is here..

    my email is

    P.S good luck with your hair, I'm so scared of changing mine so I can see how its nerve-wracking!

  98. I have to say before anything else. I bought this jumper off of ebay and this has been featured on both Lavish Alice AND now miss guided... its a bit odd! I got it for cheaper off of ebay!

    So warm and comfortable isn't it <3
    I love MissGuided, I've been wanting to order off of their website for ages!
    Tweed is a must have for this fall season, and boucle style jackets are a favorite for me <3
    This is a go to bag right here, fashionable, practical... what else could I want <3
    Burgundy is the it color for this season. I think it would look really good paired with that tweed jacket
    Pair them all with a good pair of jeans and you are good to go :D

  99. i couldn't possibly choose between this beauty
    or this one


  100. I love the jumper and you are gorgeous!

    My A/W outfit would be:

  101. I love that jumper, it's amazing, the colour really suits you too.

    I'm also loving this dress!


  103. Oo great giveaway :) I think I would choose a daytime outfit for the autumn days ahead:

    Red Jumper (maybe a bit bigger than usual size for an oversized look) -

    With a collar poking out the top -

    With some acid wash looking denim shorts (Wooly tights probably required!) -

    and some high top trainers as I am feeling brave and I haven't tried them but they look cool! -

    And you're blog is anything but 'blah' - it's great and I love reading it :)

  104. Love the studs and sequins! Don't but from Missguided due to their sizing but anyway I'm more bothered about your outfit pics! xo

  105. Love this outfit, the jumper is lovely and contrasts perfectly with the metallic top x

  106. My favourite outfit on you. You suit browns and golds so well. I adore the jumper and clutch!

    HannahMay xo

  113. I love your hat, it looks so warm and cute! :)

    My two favourite items from missguided right now (there's way too many to choose from) are their crop tops and their studded jumpers:


  114. What you say in this post is really appealing to me, I (also) love fashion but I think that creating a quality blog can turn a bit hard sometimes, because you have to post everyday or almost everyday if you want to get noticed, and also read a lot of critics which is not bad, but somethimes people are just too impolite. Anyway, I just love your blog, your style and what you write so keep on doing whatever makes you feel good :)
    This is my choice from , I think it would look gorgeous with black leggins + biker boots :

  115. Love that studded jumper, it looks lovely on you!

    My favourite bits from the Missguided site have to be;

    This jacket -

    Which I would wear with these trousers -

    And this shirt -

  116. I'm also a huge fan of that studded sweater, khaki looks amazing with berry tones which I'm obsessing over this A/W. My other fave pics are:

    This tweed blazer -

    Rockstar dress -

    & Geek tee -

    Spoilt for choice! <3
