Oh I wish I was a punk rocker...

With all of the chaos of opening my boutique, my blog really took a back seat and whilst I absolutely love being in the shop and everything about it, it was so good to get out yesterday in the sunshine and shoot an outfit post again.
A lot of you will have seen these amazing floral jeans on my snapchat (sequincinders) - I got them into the boutique and I just had to keep a pair for myself. I am totally obsessed with them, especially for Summer! They can work with so many styles. from classy to funky but for this post I decided to go for a hippie vibe with an oversized sweater from Zara and some long feather earrings. The embroidered detail on the jeans screams of a swinging 60's vibe and the sweater gave the look such a laid back feel! I loved wearing this look, especially in the beautiful sunshine. It really put me in the mood for Summer! I just hope it lasts!!

Don't forget to check out my FB, Snapchat and instagram to keep up to date with more funky styles that come into the boutique!

Dreams Can Come True

Four years ago I began a fashion journey... and I had no idea where the road would lead. 
What started as a hobby has now led to a career and I could not be happier.
What began as a small blog has now grown to have a worldwide following and led me, not only to study Fashion & Textiles but to the opening of my very own boutique.
Four years ago if you had asked me where I would be in 2016, I would have had no idea that the answer would be right here, in Sequin Cinderella Boutique, but here I am and it has been the most incredibly wonderful, terrifying, nerve wrecking, exciting journey of my life.
For any of you who run your own business you will know the many risks involved but you will also know the satisfaction of seeing your dream come to life before your very eyes.
Sitting down each night, looking around at a place that I have dreamt of and realising that it is here and it is real is a very strange but fulfilling feeling. Sure... I have taken a risk but only two weeks in, I am damn glad I did.
Since I was a little girl, I dreamt of owning my own boutique. My mum had several boutiques of her own when she was my age and we both talked of doing it again one day, this time together. She raised me with fashion in my blood and it is just the most amazing feeling to see this childhood dream turn into reality.
As I write this, I will have been in business for just over two weeks and they really have been incredible. The feedback I have received has been amazing! I am in my element helping women of all ages, shapes and sizes find their perfect outfit or accessory - the only one, extreme problem that I have faced is refraining from keeping one of every item myself! (lol)

I will be forever grateful to each and every one of you who have come to visit, brought cards and gifts & wished me luck. To those who have bought pieces from the boutique, I hope they bring you as much happiness in wearing them as they did for me in choosing them.
So here, for any of you who have not seen pictures, is a little sneak peek inside
