Fashionista Friday: Conna Walker

After starting out as an eBay seller at the age of 17, Conna Walker has since built a brand that is worn by celebrities to red carpet events, has stores globally and millions of customers who vary from your average young woman to Beyoncé. 

Not only is Conna an inspiriational woman who has achieved so much at such a young age, she is a fashionista. Without her personal style as guidance, House of CB wouldn’t be the popular brand it is today. 

This Fashionista Friday is dedicated to a woman that Molicia has looked up to since she first discovered House of CB and its feminine, figure-hugging clothing. Conna Walker is a girl who has it all. 

Did I mention how influential her style is? Maybe I did. Maybe you need to see some examples…

The Best Instagram Fashion Accounts 

Whenever some quick inspiration is needed, Instagram is the first place I go to. There are infinite numbers of accounts that offer inspo as well as affordable ways to get the look. I’ve put together a list of the best Instagram fashion accounts to follow. Here it is…

@micahgianneli

  

  

Model and blogger Micah Gianneli posts OOTD content daily. I love the fact that some days her look is casual and others she could be mistaken for someone attending a red carpet event. 

BONUS: She always tags the places she gets her clothes from in the photos! 

@badlydrawnmodels


 

It’s great to scroll down your feed and see something unique and fun. As the name clearly states, it’s an account of models… Drawn very badly. 

@thecurvyfashionista_
  

Not just your average celebrity street style account. @thecurveyfashionista_ makes gorgeous edits and is always one of the first to post the latest trends. 

@manieredevoir
  

The official account of a UK online retailer that offers editorials that every street style blogger could be inspired by. For every girl’s darker side. 

@houseofcb
  

Another online retailer that offers editorials that are vogue-worthy. This account is the complete opposite to the previous one on the list as the clothes are perfect for your girly side. 

@sydneyfashionblogger
  

This fashion account is like looking at a feed of your dream life. I’ve been a loyal follower for a couple of years and I am always inspired by @sydneyfashionblogger’s style and the quality of her photos. She’s the type of woman that makes you want to seriously up your game.

@thefashionbybel


   

More famous for being a worldwide beauty vlogging phenomenon, Carli Bybel’s fashion account is due serious credit. Another person that tags the shops that sell the clothes she wears (yasssss), you can get the look. Everything she wears is also super affordable. 


@laurenpopey


  

‘The Only Way Is Essex’ star Lauren Pope is a serious style crush. She often posts photos of her outfits and again, they’re usually from places where the majority of us shop. 

For tonnes of selfies and a peak into my life, follow my Instagram: @mollsdickinson, I might even follow you back 😉

Steal The Look! Runway vs Highstreet

There are certain things that don’t just capture my eye for a second. There are certain things that ignite a strong desire and stay with me until I get them. 

When I saw the runway photos from the Moschino SS15 show, I was in awe of the pink leather skirt. I have remained so ever since. I had to get it one way or another…

Last month was the first time I’d been paid from my new job, so I trailed all my favourite sites like Topshop, Missguided, River Island etc and didn’t find anything that particularly stood out to me. So I visited House of CB and scrolled through the entire website until I went to the skirts section. Then, I fell in love again…

A blush pink leather skirt appeared on my screen and if life was a film, ‘Hallelujah’ would’ve been the background song. I’d lusted for the Moschino skirt for a year and I’d finally found the perfect solution. For £69 how could I resist?

Top – Topshop, Skirt – House of CB, Shoes – Lipsy, Clutch – New Look ✨

   
The skirt is of beautiful quality; it looks and feels more expensive than it is. 

LESSON: Never give up searching! Life has a funny way of giving you exactly what you want.
