HOW TO DRESS LIKE A REVOLVE GIRL: NEGIN MIRSALEHI


Who doesn't love the fashion looks at Coachella? Second to the line up, wearing our best festival outfit is possibly the number 1 reason most of us want to go. This year I became totally obsessed with Revolve. Not only am I coveting every item on their website, I just love their vibe at events. They are definitely a brand I want to work with in the future.

MY TOP 10 REVOLVE PICKS

When I spotted the crochet lace dress, below, on blogger Negin Mirsalehi, left, I just couldn't get it out of my head, but the way my bank account is set up I was not about to buy it anytime soon...lol 

                                 ↓ HARVEST DRESS BY MAJORELLE FOR REVOLVE 



Cue the dupe of the century, its soooo gorgeous...

What I'm wearing:

Crochet Lace Dress - Pretty Little Thing sold out  (similar below)
White T-shirt Dress - Primark in store (similar here & here)
Yellow Sunglasses - Asos (click here)
Western Belt - Asos - (click here)
Open Toe Boots - H&M sold out (similar here) or here

I can't even begin to tell you how much I'm in love with this dress! Its actually a beach cover up so I wore a longline vest underneath to hide the transparency of it. The intricacy of the crochet lace really makes the dress feel and look like it costs considerably more than £28! 

Revolve RRP = £204.71     Pretty Little Thing = £28.00

Save = £171.71!


At the moment its sold out :( but I would say keep stalking the website because this happened to me first time round, I'm sure it will come back in stock; alternatively I have linked similar dresses below!

Hope you guys love this look just as much as I do! I'm thinking of doing a blog series where I recreate celeb/blogger looks for less. What do you guys think, is that something you would like to see, let me know in the comment section below!

UPGRADE YOUR DOUBLE DENIM LOOK

What I'm wearing:

Denim Top - Boohoo (click here)
Denim Cropped Jeans - Asos sold out (similar here & here)
Pink sunglasses - Gloss The Label (similar here)
Cross Over sandals - Dorothy Perkins sold out (similar here)

Double denim can be a tricky look to pull off but I think the key to this 80s trend is not to over think it. The denim on denim look also known as the canadian tuxedo often consists of a denim jacket paired with denim jeans. Its time to change this narrative with the off-the-shoulder denim top...you dont own one you say?...well then its time to add to your denim collection.

I cant stop wearing off-the-shoulder tops, its an addiction I cant kick. This one is from Boohoo, purchased last year, but its still up on their website on sale for £12!! I couldn't resist the wide flared sleeves and bought a size 10. It runs a little big so I'd suggest sizing down but its no biggy if you dont, I really like the way it fits.


So in love with these glasses from Gloss The Label. I feel bad and bougie.

If you didn't notice already on my instagram I am all about the off-the-shoulder look, theres something about showing off your shoulders and d├ęcolletage that has an understated appeal. Last year there were only a handful of these tops on the highstreet but this year your spoilt for choice as the market has stepped up their game and I think its time you stepped your denim game up too!

Heres a round up of some of my favourite denim off-the-shoulder tops on the highstreet all under £20! - click the photo's below to be taken straight to it!

MY JUNE FAVOURITES


Why hello there! Weren't I just writing about my May favourites the other day? I dont believe June is over, Julying....lol. Ok now that the dad joke is out the way its time to share what I've been loving last month...

1. TO PAMPER | Continuing my search for a night cream I tried out the Lancome Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Moisturising Cream my skin has been breaking out but even after the first application it really smoothed and calmed my skin without making it oily. 
Just before [applying my night cream] I love love love spraying my face with the Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist, guys seriously this smells heavenly its so light and refreshing on the skin but really provides alot of moisture. Buying the MUA Highlight Powder in Golden Scintillation was easily the best £3.00 I have spent this year. For such an inexpensive product it is so pigmented. Its so compact I can carry it in my handbag without any fuss so I can top up during the day but too be honest its not necessary because its very long lasting. I've had a lot of compliments from this highlighter and when its back in stock will be picking up the MUA Highlighter Powder in Rosewood Glimmer, a lovely rose gold highlight!


2. TO WEAR | Yellow is really having its moment right now and I got these high waisted linen trousers from Zara, unfortunately they went into the sale but you can shop similar here.
- How pretty are these sparkly heels from Next!!??? I LOVE THEM.
- I've really become a fan of Desi Perkins on Youtube, I love her video's especially her vlogs and just her whole vibe is just so cool. After watching this vlog I knew I had to have an item from her collab with Quay Australia. I bought the Sahara shades and their literally my favourite sunglasses of all time.

3. TO WATCH | Two words LOVE ISLAND. This show is absolute jokes and I'm always like "why am I watching this" but missing it is not an option, its so bad that its good! My favourite couple is Montana and Alex but my favourite person has to be Marcel he's such a sweetie. If your into trash reality tv then this show is for you and you have to follow @melissaswardrobe on IG stories and @GraceFVictory on twitter for the best commentary - Its like a live gogglebox and their hilarious!

4. TO LISTEN | I really want to share all the podcasts I'm listening to in a separate post, I listen to quite a few but this month I'm loving the 3ShotsOfTequila podcast and these three guys are full of banter. I have not made it through any of their episodes without laughing uncontrollably and it is for this reason that I tend to only listen to them at home. I have actually burst out laughing on the tube, work and while shopping! They discuss all things life, love, work and well-being from a male perspective, their content/language is more on the adult side but its well worth the listen. You can listen to them for free on soundcloud here
