American flags and an unlikely style icon - Style post!

Hey Guys,

Jacket - Select 
Jumper - Fashion Union
Jeans - Tk Maxx (brand Kill City)
Boots - Deichman 

I love this outfit and have been wearing it loads this winter to college.If you follow me on twitter @afashionoddity you must know by now when it comes to All Time Low (comment if you love them too, also comment if you have no idea who they are) I turn into one of those annoying fangirls. Just over two weeks ago I finally after about 6 years of waiting got to see them live in Cardiff on their first UK arena tour with my other favourite band You me at six (best night of my life) so ATLs music photographer Adam Elmakias is insane I mean....

Just wow!!

So during the week they were all in the UK for the tour all over Adam's twitter were amazing photos for the shows and backstage and this one of Alex Gaskarth broke the fandom. We all fell in love with those Docs and I need that leather jackets. So I was discussing with some fellow fans how we are taking style inspiration from a band front-man and then I remember this is not the first time. If you are at all familiar with ATL I'm sure you will recognise these jeans he practically lives in (he wore them the whole of wrapped in 2012 I think)

Everyone wanted a pair and luckily I found something similar one day last year in my Tk-Maxx (or Tj Maxx in the US) for only a tenner so they not be an exact dupe but of course I got them. 

So long story short I Charlotte Anstee a fashion lover, future fashion student (hopefully) takes fashion inspiration from Alex Gaskarth somehow!

Do you have any weird fashion inspirations let me know in the comments. (The 14 year old obsessive fangirl in me is imagining if Alex or Adam read this....not even sorry) 

Hope you enjoyed this slightly different outfit post. 

Love Charlotte

Zuzka rose petal cleansing milk - Beauty post!

Hey Guys,

Sorry for the lack of posts recently. 

I was so excited to try out this cleansing milk from Zuzka*. It's a rose scented creamy product. It's recommended to be rubbed all over the face with make-up on then you can wipe it off with a hot cloth or damp cotton pads. I use it with cotton pads as that's what works best for me. I find the product so soft, it really has a high end feel to it. I also really love the pump, it doesn't give too much product and it is much more effective than a pot which leads to sticky fingers when trying to get product out. However in terms of taking make up off you really do have to blend it in and you sometimes have to use a separate eye make-up remover. The brand Zuzka isn't one I had heard of until recently but they are a natural company which is something I always want to support. This product is from their botanical's range which is great for acne and mature skins. This product works for all skin types I'd say. I do think the full product is pricey however this 30ml size has lasted me two weeks of daily use and I don't think I'm near to emptying it (it's hard to tell how much is left to pump out) so I think the full 150ml product would last a long time, very much an investment product for your skincare routine. 

So far I am really enjoying this product and I am loving adding more natural beauty products to my collection. 

Love Charlotte

Clash of the patterns - Style post!

Hey Guys,

Scarf - Accessorize  (same scarf but only available in different colours now)
Jumper - Zara kids (old)
Jeans - Next (old)
Coat - New Look  (old) 
Wellies* - Evercreatures 

How beautiful is this scarf, I got this recently in the January sales as I have been looking for one for ages. The pink and blue are two of my favourite shades and I think its a nice change from all the tartan scarf's. Now wellies not usually seen on fashion blogs. But I love them for walks (personally think they look better than trainers or hiking boots) and festivals. Most people know how much I love the baroque pattern so I am in love with these wellies and the blue and white colours will carry them through all year as they are quite nautical too. However wellies aren't always the comfiest things but these however it literally feels like you're walking on jelly, the sole is so soft and comfy.
I love this outfit as I feel so warm without looking like an Eskimo. 
If you have been on a Fashion Oddity before you might notice something new, I got a new web design. I went for a minimalistic look so I hope you like I just hope I can still show some personality with it. Please let me know what you think. 


Love Charlotte
