ASOS Iridescent Sparkle & Kevin Bacon OOTD

F*king love the embellishment on this jewel tone ASOS Iridescent Sparkle crop-top. So many gems. 
A kaleidoscope of colours when the light dazzles against it, and a pretty neat way of glittering up an everyday ootd of ripped denim, laced-up boot and camel coat. Didn't love the leers, stares or general rudeness of the "great" British public when we were out shooting this look. Totally killed my buzz. I'm talking old man leering, woman in parka staring and staring and not even having the decency to look away once she'd stared in horror at me for a good few minutes (felt like hours).  Definitely going to invest in a "Rude To Stare" placard; I mean, come on, a glance and a few looks are okay, but staring me down for shooting pictures? Get the fuck outta here! Gets on my glitzy tits tbh. Haven't people seen cameras before? Are we not over the Millennium? Dude! 

Talking of dudes; Kevin Bacon. Skinnydip London even named this jazzy, shimmery, slice of bacon bag after his legacy. There's something about KB that makes you want to like, laugh and love at the same time. Am I right? Not just cos he mentioned Hollyoaks in that EE advert, promise. So of course, I went to everyone's favourite fashion blogger food aisle and bought me some of the best kind of bacon, which should go nicely alongside my cartons of juice and milk. Quite a kitchen of quirk! 

Makes me so happy you guys are loving soinspo's new make-over! Thank you once again for being such a lifeline of support, love and kindness. It couldn't mean anymore to me if it tried. I'm already filled with tons of topics I hope to run with. One being a monthly mention of a few heroes, inspirations and icons of mine. What do ya reckon to that? I'm all about sharing spirited souls! 

What do you make of this jazz-jewelled OOTD?
Have you shopped at ASOS/SkinnyDip lately?


  1. Such a beautiful outfit! That crop top is just sparkly perfection and the bag makes for the perfect accompaniment! x

  2. I feel the same when I shoot in public; stares areokay, but glares and leers, get outta town. I think the outfit is awesome, by the way. That crop top is such a good way to spice up any ol' outfit.

  3. haha "gets on my glitzy tits" same. i think i need to integrate that phrase into my everyday conversations. anyway, this top is way cool. i love all the colors that reflect off the embellishments

  4. Just look at the jewels on that top! I'm in love with this whole outfit! I cannot stand when people stop and stare but saying that you are brave having your photos taken in public :D it's something that I'm still scared of. I remember when i took a few photos for Yazzy's Corner out in "public" and i found the quietest place just up the road from my house! lol

  9. sparkle sparkling, love your top. It's so unique and eye-catching (: x

  10. Amazing top! I love it so much. There's just something about sparkle at this time of year, right? And it never ceases to amaze me how rude some people can be. OK, so not everyone gets or even knows about the blogging thing, so a curious glance you can understand. But full on staring? Come on! Absolutely love your new template and can't wait for whatever new content you choose to put out! x

  14. Ah! This embellished top is so gorgeous! I saw it on your Instagram and instantly fell in love with its over-the-top glitz :) It's a pity people were so adamant on staring at you, though next time.. just remember you're most likely 10 million times more fabulous than they are Sophie ;)

    Have a lovely week!

  15. You look beautiful, as usual, I absolutely love the clutch!

  16. Oh my god Sophie this top is all kinds of beautiful! I love it so much! You should definitely get one of those placards, people like that are the main reason I never venture outside my garden to take pictures, although they were probably just wondering which famous supermodel you were cos you looked so good ;) xx

  17. Finally making my way to your blog, sweetie. I remember this killer top from your Insta hon! What a fab piece, I am speechless!
    Also, how 20th century is it of people to stare when someone is taking photos or having a photo shoot?! It is such a common thing now! If I saw you taking pics though (but I wouldn't know who you are) I would totally come up and say you have a killer top and what is the photo shoot for. And then I would follow you - not home obvi, on social media haha :D Hope you get my weird humour, babe. Don't mind anyone, keep doing what you do ;)

  18. SOPHIEEE!! First of all I am loving the new blog layout- it's so sparkly and iridescent- it totally sums you up :) This is my fave outfit ever of yours, I know i've said on Twitter and Insta (cos i'm a creepy, stalker, fan girl!), but this top is INCREDIBLE! Like you said, the embellishment is so multi-faceted and its totally an injection of happiness!

    As for the British public (grrrr)- ignore those rude nob-heads. They were probably angry because you are a sparkly, injection of sunshine and they are rainy and miserable! I've had people stare too- it's so rude.

    This Kevin Bacon bag is so cool- a bag made of bacon that is actually called Kevin Bacon? What more could you need :P

  19. The different colours and patterns of light thrown against walls and ceilings by your Asos Iridescent Sparkle Top must be beautiful when the light strikes it. How rude of the older man and woman to stare at you. A more appropriate gaze might have been an appreciative look at where the thrown light was landing.
    I love the look.

  20. Ah that jeweled top is soooo amazing! Love it! And it adds so much to the outfit. Haha why do people stare so much?? People pretty much ignore me when I'm taking pics. You need to come to AZ and people won't stare! :D We're all a little crazy here.
    When I was in London I skipped down the street with Jason...just because I was happy or something I don't know, and everyone stared at us like we were crazy. Haha it made me laugh! :D :D

    The Bacon bag is so cute! Loves it!


  21. I love the top - thanks for leaving your link. Lovely post. KARA :)

  22. That's the prettiest top ever! I guess people probably look because they don't know about blogging but also, how do you know they're weren't looking because you're bloody stunning? Not everyone walks around in awesome outfits like this y'know! x
