Good afternoon Crohnies!
Haven’t I got a treat for you today, I’ve been talking to the lovely people over at UK Unsigned Hype (@ukunsignedhype), an online store that sells artists apparel innovated by @duaneflames Artist/Writer/Producer/ creator of UK unsigned Hype and I have to say I am in LOVE with their products and by the looks of it so are the boys of the X Factor! Here’s Luke Friend in one of their hats
After looking through their store I have to say my personal favourite is their varsity jacket (£34.99) in grey buy it here team it with a black hoodie underneath for a very cool way to stay warm this winter!
Another gem on the site is the Hope bobble beanie (£14.99) in maroon, the Pom Pom on the top is adorable and a must have for winter buy it here
And finally I came across the don’t label me sweater (£24.99) in black, wear it with a red skater skirt and some thick black tights for a stylish way to stay warm! The jumper is perfect because as much as I joke and call you all my Crohnies you don’t want to be labeled because of an illness, scar or burn which I feel makes the jumper perfect as a feature on crohnieclothing! buy it here
Good evening Crohnies! Hope you’re all well and starting to get in the festive spirit, as you know it’s time for all the Christmas nights out and I took it upon myself to test drive a dress on my night out last night!
The Tina Tartan and PU Skater Dress (£25.00) is from Boohoo.com and is the epitome of great night out wear! The chiffon top of the dress is a red and black tartan and it has a high neckline perfect for any chest scars and also the pattern on the chiffon hides any scars or burns underneath. Teamed with the leather look high waisted skirt which is a slightly longer length than any of the other skater skirts/dresses I’ve saw recently!
I teamed the dress with a statement necklace, bracelets and ballet flats but if you want to be super warm/ hide any leg scars etc. I would team it with a pair of opaque tights and some cute heeled ankle boots!
If you want to check the dress out, here’s the link! http://www.boohoo.com/restofworld/clothing/dresses/icat/dresses/new-in/tina-tartan-and-pu-skater-dress/invt/azz38209
Finally here’s a quick snap of the dress in action, definitely a 10/10 buy!
Looking to get the first steps into becoming a fully fledged business by getting some T shirts printed to see how they sell, got a few designs in the making, only issue is I know nothing about the whole thing so if any of you know any way of being able to help I’d greatly appreciate it, please get in touch!
Here at CrohnieClothingHQ we’re daft for the Ylvis song What Does The Fox Say, so to show our love we thought why not buy ALL the fox related goodies and this is my pick of the bunch! The Asos A Wear Fox Print Jumper (£38.00) is a very soft wool blend, so no worries about the dreaded itchy jumper and is in a gorgeous shade of grey with the sleeves and the rusty coloured fox so you’ll be comfortable and sure to stand out! It has a high neckline to hide any chest scars/burns and looks gorgeous layered with a red tartan skirt, some opaque tights and your killer winter boots! The jumper is also quite fitted but if youd rather it to be able to layer or to hide any lumps and bumps, buy it a size up, it’s available up to size 16!

Well Crohnies haven’t I got some fantastic news for you, we were at the Herald Scottish Digital Business Awards on Wednesday and … WE WON!! Never thought for a minute we’d win anything but it’s the best surprise ever especially for such early days!
I’d Like to thank each and every one of you for taking the time out of your day to stay up to date on what’s happening and we definitely couldn’t have won without your support! Thank you all so much!
Here’s some photos of the night!
Brrr! The leaves are changing and there’s a chill in the air, this can only mean one thing autumn is in full swing and that means my favourite time of the year my Crohnies… HALLOWEEN!
Many a year have I had issues with finding the balance between a cool costume that is quite girly while not too showy yet still covers my own scars and I think this year I’ve cracked it… Miss Beetlejuice! I’ve found it’s perfect because firstly you’ll have a wig which is perfect since some of us have thinner hair plus dying/spraying your hair is a bit too much effort for one night! Next you can use make up that would use some prosthetic scars, even better if you have one or two of your own! Then the dress itself is very well made, it’s a brand new outfit for 2013 and it is the most professional looking costume I’ve saw on a budget! The only accessories I’ve added are a petticoat/tutu to make the skirt even fuller (you can even make your own with some netting and elastic for pennies!) and some super thick tights to hide my newly acquired scar on my leg and thrown on my old favourite military style boots to complete the look! Click the link to buy it online, even better if you’re lucky enough to find it on eBay or Amazon for even cheaper!
Happy (early) Halloween!!
Well good afternoon my Crohnies! Sorry this is my first post in a whole but I have to say it’s all been going a bit crazy over here at CrohnieClothingHQ! Here’s a quick run down of the last weeks activities…
Well as you can see from the picture, I’ve been in hospital, I had a manifestation of Crohns Disease on some skin on my leg that I had to get removed last Monday which I wasn’t expecting… then while in a haze of painkillers and dressing changes I found out that CrohnieClothing has been shortlisted for a Herald Scottish Digital Business Award in the student category which is brand new this year and I’ll be heading to an awards ceremony on the 23rd of October so wish us luck!!
I also received an email this morning from Halogen Communications who do publicity for the college and they are interested in talking to me about a feature on CrohnieClothing for some local newspapers, wow, everything is happening so fast!
This is the point I’d like to apologise for not having a new post up yet but as you can tell it’s all a bit hectic, I’m hoping to have a post on winter jumpers and coats up tonight or tomorrow morning, I hope you’ll all check it out.
And finally I’d just like to thank you all so much for supporting CrohnieClothing and myself since the beginning, without a doubt I wouldn’t be here without all your help and input, it means so much and I really am blessed to be in such a special position right now!
THANK YOU ALL!
Good Afternoon my Crohnies, I have a rather different post for you today… instead of buying to hide something you are uncomfortable with, this is to prevent you getting any kind of nasty bug or illness! I for one am ridiculously guilty of wearing inappropriate footwear (admit it, you’ve wore those flats that went with your outfit even though there was 6 inches of snow outside! … well maybe you haven’t but I have!)
I have done my usual trawling of the high street, online and by watching the catwalk and I have to say I am utterly in love with these Traditional Brogue Boots (Loake for Topshop £190). They’re more pricey than my usual posts but I have been promised that these boots are investment and will be sure to see you through many winters to come and end the days of soggy socks and cold feet!
For more affordable footwear, I’d recommend Office, Schuh and New Look who have fantastic options, I for one am also trying to stop myself buying yet another pair of biker boots from New Look!
