I got this term ‘core aesthetic’ stuck in my head and couldn’t remember why or where I’d gotten it from. Then I remembered it had something to do with letting Pinterest find your specific look. I typed ‘Chrissie core aesthetic’.
Here’s what it came up with for me…
Alternative and urban things like neon signs, a skull, tough but feminine style, a little bit of bling and even a bee – the symbol of Manchester.
Pinterest has well got me sussed!
I’d love to know what you get and if you agree?
Wether you want to be casual or glam, velvet is easier to wear than you think!

Cage City is an online boutique which sells one off handmade items (so you know your style is truly unique), vintage pieces and different collections such as Minkpink and Eviltwin as well as their own fashion. Prices can be a steep but the style of clothes are basically what I would design if I wasn’t scared of sowing machines. Think alternate style like 90’s grunge, rock-chick and street style, with some wonderfully kinky details – which all add up to make one kick-ass collection!
I’ve bought the Astronomy tee and I’m so excited, I can’t wait to style different outfits around it!
What would you style it with?
I call these collages Style-Boards which I’ve been creating since last year. I recently started to put them in my scrapbook (the endearingly jumbled kind like my Mum saved her recipes and knitting patterns in , not the trendily templated and stickered variety) but friends said they were too nice to hide away. I’ve decided from now I’m going to display them on my wardrobe doors for everyday fash-spiration instead. Here they are newest first:
