Guest Post from my
Leopard Print advertiser

Hello, lovely readers of Good Golly Miss Hollie!
Allow me to introduce myself...
My name is Katie and I'm 22 years old. I'm a recent graduate of Nottingham Trent University where I studied Fashion Marketing and Branding. My fashion and lifestyle blog ( has been going since 2010 where I passionately write about trends, marketing, advertising and social media.

Today I'm guest posting on Good Golly Miss Hollie as Hollie has kindly allowed me to be her Leopard Print Advertiser for the next 30 days.

The subject of my post is going to be my personal style.
 So, without further ado...
Everybody has a personal style. Whether you're style-savvy, passionate about all things fashion and keen to dress in the latest trends, or more of a laid-back individual, who'd rather dress to suit their own taste and disregard seasonal advances - everyone has their own distinctive look. 

Personal style is the way we build outfits, the mood and feel of our wardrobe and, most importantly of all, the way we wear what we wear.

Some people are more visually able and know what pieces will look good together. Others... Sadly not. The amount of times that I have come across an outfit that physically hurts my eyes, even when I'm just popping down to my local corner shop, is unbelievable!

The other day I saw someone in HEAD TO TOE leopard print. If this wasn't bad enough, she had leopard print in the traditional brown, black and beige colour scheme on her top half - and leopard print in a PINK, PURPLE AND BLACK colour scheme on her bottom half. NO! 

Just... No.

Now, don't get me wrong, I love leopard print as much as Hollie does
(I'd have to be to agree to being the Leopard Print Advertiser) but everything in moderation, please!

Anyway, I've been trying to come up with a short phrase that sums up my personal style. Here's the few that made the short-list:

1. Girly with a hint of grunge.

2. When grunge meets glam.

3. Girly grunge.

4. Glamorous grunge.

I decided that number two is the most appropriate; allow me to explain!

At Uni, my style used to be so laid-back (out of laziness, if I'm honest). I love my rock music so I started going to Rock City on a regular basis, getting involved with an alternative crowd, and my style, as a result, evolved to include hints of grunge

I wore a lot of black, and darker colours in general, and my chocolate brown Doc Marten-style boots had to be included in almost every outfit!

But I also loved florals and pretty, girly looks:


Towards the end of Uni, when nights out were few and far between because of the workload, I used to really enjoy getting dressed up and making more of an effort with what I wore. As I grew older, my style adapted again. 

I still have my grungy days, and I still have my glamorous days... But, most of the time, I'm a mixture of the two. Hence, my personal style: when grunge meets glam.

I have to say, I'm one of those people who tries to keep up to the latest trends. I love using fashion as an extension of my personality. 

Another thing that I love about fashion is its ability to be ahead of time. For instance, there are garments that are currently being sold on the high street which encapsulate S/S 13, meaning that us fashionistas can buy into the trends early and set an example for the other fashion followers out there.

The other week I bought a dress that showcased the following aspects of S/S 13 trends: 60's, flower power, stripes and pastels. 


This outfit demonstrates my personal style nicely! The grunge aspects of the outfit are the studded belt, the black tights and the leather jacket. The glam aspects are the dress, the curled hair, prominent make-up, sequinned heeled shoes and sequinned jewellery.

I predict that my style will change and evolve in the years to come, like it has done in the past. But, for now, I'm happy with my look. I'd like to think it's a little bit unique, different and individualistic!
