Meet Our Spotlight
No matter what the season '90s grunge always makes a catwalk appearance, from dark florals and dungaree's in spring to tartan and leather in autumn. This A/W'13 is no exception, with grunge styling hotly one of the key looks to be seen in. Rejoice then for grunge-girls at heart, like this week's Spotlight Robyn Mayday. A long-time fan of black-on-black, checks and her much loved Dr Marten boots, we can't help but want to jump into her closet for a rummage. Read on and we're sure you'll agree.
I'm absolutely obsessed with monochrome and am constantly wearing black. But I like to mix textures and prints to make my outfits more exciting. This season I'm loving tartan, so I went with this plaid print skirt and added a knitted jumper for warmth! Cut-out boots are the fashion blogger shoe; show me any form of cut-out boot and I’ll be after it! The studs on these add a bit of detailing and the cap stops the outfit from looking too preppy.

Monki Cat Print Blouse: Printed shirts are ideal to pair with skinny jeans. This cat print number from Monki is simply brilliant and has cute stud detailing on the collar.
Missguided Monochrome Shorts: More monochrome - I told you I’m obsessed! I love Missguided for on-trend key pieces at a super affordable prices and these shorts are no exception.
ASOS Fluffy Crop Jumper: I recently bought a fluffy jumper and it’s so heavenly to wear. It’s also available in green, perfect for this season as emerald is set to be a huge trend.

Q & A:
What new season trends will you be investing in this A/W’13?
I'm already onto the oversized coat trend and I grabbed an oversized bomber a few weeks back. I recently bought a bright red dress, as it’s a key A/W'13 colour. After thinking it’d look ridiculous on me, I actually quite like it! Maybe I’ll venture away from my all-black looks a bit more often...
Fave fashion reads?
I read a mix of blogs as it means I get a feel for loads of different styles. Tasha from So On Trend has a really individual style and amazing hair! Amy from The Little Magpie always puts together incredible outfits. Amy from Amy Valentinex wears the most awesome clothes, whilst Leanne from Thunder and Threads always looks on point!
What key piece could you not live without?
Boots of any kind! Even in the summer I wear boots; from Dr Martens to ankle boots – I love them. At the moment I'm wearing cut out boots, but I'm sure I’ll be donning my Docs as it gets colder. Boots are just so comfortable and make outfits look less girly in an instant.
How would your friends describe your style?
I usually dress very casually and tend to opt for grungy colours, especially in autumn. But I'm trying to add some bright pieces to my wardrobe. My old house mate would say I had an unhealthy obsession with cat print, hence the Monki blouse in my favourites!
