Hi! I’m Ally. Personal style and fashion blogger from Leeds. I’m all about mixing designer fashion labels with high street labels. You’ll see lots from Vivienne Westwood, H&M, Gucci, Zara, Dior, Zadig & Voltaire, COS and more on this blog.
This space of mine was previously a luxury lifestyle blog…but I’ve moved it more towards fashion these days. Style is my main squeeze, it’s my passion, so it made sense to focus more on it.
What on earth is a ‘Luxury Blogger’?!
‘Luxury’ because there’s plenty of designer labels and fine dining…but there’s also a lot of high street and fast food! Gotta have that balance!
I find it hard to classify myself I guess as a luxury blogger because I think it’s actually just middle-class. It’s all relative, isn’t it? What some others might view as luxury, I see as normal…what I view as luxury, others view as normal.
Maybe it’s better to class me as a ‘blogger with expensive tastes’?!
I blog because I’m over-sharer. If I posted all this stuff on Facebook my friends would quickly get bored, so I figure this is a good outlet for my ramblings. Some of you seem to like it…and even read it, so I’ve kept going. I’ve been doing it for a few years now and fit it in when I can around my full time job. It can be challenging, but I do love it.
I’ve been interested in style and fashion since my teen years. I’d go to a small shop in York (where I lived at the time) and would love browsing through the rails of designer clothes. My first purchase was a ridiculous top by Versace. I hardly wore it because I was so afraid of getting it damaged, but I loved it. These days, my lusts cover everything from clothing, shoes and bags. My style has evolved over the years, but my addiction to shopping has not. Occasionally I try to curb it, but mostly I think it’s a good excuse to have a fashion blog!
Blogging in Leeds
Leeds has been my home town for over 14 years. I’m proud to be a Yorkshire girl and many of my ‘eating out’ blog posts focus on restaurants in the Leeds area.
There are some amazing lifestyle/food/fashion bloggers here in Leeds and actually across the whole of the UK. I’m continually inspired by them. You can check out just a few of my favourites here: Blogs I Love
Hope you enjoy this fashion blog as much as I enjoy chattering on about things I like! Tell me if you want to see more of anything in particular.
