Character Style Inspiration - Zayday Williams (Scream Queens)

Images of Keke Palmer via

As promised (so very long ago!) today's style post is all about another of Scream Queens sassy leading ladies; Zayday Williams. In contrast to the Chanel's luxe look and BFF Grace's preppy style, Zayday's wardrobe has a definite late 90's/early 00's vibe. In a recent interview actress Keke Palmer credited Brandy Norwood's Moesha as an inspiration behind her character's look which features lots of pattern, colour and texture.

Zayday's wardrobe is full of playful pieces including lots of crop tops, high waisted trousers/culottes, bomber jackets and statement jewellery. Similarly to Grace, Zayday also loves to rock a good hat, like the fluffy pom pom adorned beret pictured above, as well as a whole range of other amazing hair accessories.

Shop the look: Cropped Wide-leg Trousers, River Island £38 | Denim Dress, Dorothy Perkins £17.60 | Leopard Print Pumps, Net-A-Porter £615 | Beret, Eugenia Kim $203 (approx. £140) | Jacquard Crop Top, River Island £15 | Quilted Jacket, H&M (sold out) | Belly Bar, River Island £6 | Ankle Boots, Topshop (sold out) | Collar Necklace, Lane Crawford £60 | Check Trousers, Jules B (sold out) | Bib Necklace, Very Exclusive £81 | Tartan Tee, House Of Holland (sold out) | Leather Shorts, The Outnet (sold out) | Leopard Print Belt, La Redoute £26 | Faux Fur Clutch, Very Honey $46 (approx. £32) | Tartan Jumper, Motel (sold out) | Ear Jackets, Forever 21 (sold out) | Twist Front Crop Top, Topshop (sold out) | Denim Shorts, Stylebop £165

Watching, Reading Listening #4

the lying game series


TV-wise the majority of January was spent re-watching all four seasons of one of my favourite shows Hart Of Dixie. I recently added the third and fourth DVD boxsets to my collection, so it seemed like the perfect time to revisit the series as a whole - keep your eyes peeled for a Hart Of Dixie 'Pilot To Finale Project' feature sometime soon! Aside from this I have of course been amongst the masses of Netflix users who have been glued to their latest documentary series Making A Murderer, a fascinating and terrifying real-life tale.

When it comes to YouTube I've been all about the panels and roundtables in recent months, from Comic-Con to Paleyfest I've been catching up on old and new, featuring the people behind some of my favourite TV shows including Gilmore Girls, Pretty Little Liars, Once Upon A Time and The Big Bang Theory.

I also took a trip to the cinema a couple of weeks ago to see The 5th Wave, the big screen adaptation of Rick Yancey's post-apocalyptic YA novel. I actually read an advanced copy of the novel which I reviewed here back in 2013, and even stated at the time that I thought it would be well-suited to a cinematic adaptation, so naturally I was keen to see how it turned out. Although I had heard of bad reviews I was pleasantly surprised to find that myself and my friends (who hadn't read the novel) all genuinely enjoyed the film.


I kicked off the year by finishing reading/re-reading The Lying Game series penned by Sara Shepard, the lady behind Pretty Little Liars. The YA mystery series consists of six novels and you can find out more in my latest Blogger's Bookshelf post!

I'm currently switching between unique dystopian novel The Bees (Laline Paull, 2014) and non-fiction title What If? (Randall Munroe, 2014) which explores scientific answers to hypothetical questions.


As usual I've been back on the podcasts; no surprise there! Over the past month or so I've been listening to other fans thoughts and theories on the latest Pretty Little Liars episodes (via both Afterbuzz TV & Bustle), as well as catching up with Invisibilia and of course the second season of Serial. I'm also really pleased that another of my favourites, The Black Tapes Podcast, returned with the beginning of it's second season this month and can't wait to find out where the dark and mysterious story will go next. 

What have you been watching, reading & listening to lately?
