The Bloggers Bookmark #7

October 30, 2012

Well JULY can you believe was the last time this feature was on the blog.. So I thought I’d bring it back (hopefully as a more regular read) ..and boy are there some things to blow all those treats out the water this Halloween and get santa’s sleigh bells a-ringing!..

1) Beaded Peter Pan Collar Light-Purple Dress: £32.89: Romwe
From a curiosity of Romwe starting from the following of strutt you may or may not have noticed the baroque dress I bought recently snapped on my twitter as to try out their service of course.. which I love (although the sizes were a little confusing) so this purple christmasy number could be on my hit list if it’s not taken up as a christmas present.
This dress is everything a fashion fiend wants with a fitted embellished top half, A-line skirt, slightly quirky palette and overall layerable features to create several styles.

2) Elise dress: £35: Monki
Yes yes another dress. Not to everyone’s taste I will add but for an interchangeable slouchy desk dressed damsel to a bloodied and cat eared Wednesday night halloqueen, this one will come in handy for those last-minute party gatecrashes.

3) Skull cameo necklace: £18: Madison Honey Vintage
Little behind on the old Alexa Chung skull cameo trend really aren’t I? but I’d thought I’d bring it back in for all those below-the-collar shirt days this winter as its one to smash the rock chick trend.. plus the hallo vibe.

4) Jameela Galaxy Tunic: £15: Missguided
Ignore that this is another dress.. and more on the fact that its.. well.. a little silly for winter? But I really love this one. Its got the perfect amount of dress up and dress down capabilities as our monki friend from above.. but also could be a possible skirt if covered with a slouchy grey jumper and covering those fleshy areas.

5) Cupcake Pom Beanie: £12: ASOS
Cold weather (although all-weather for me) coincides with wearing hats and what better way than to sweeten up those more urban or neutral palette trends than to prance around like a cute little cupcake! It’s sure to make me weak with a “Can I have this as a stocking filler this christmas!? Pretty pretty please with a cherry on top!”

The Bloggers Bookmarks #6

July 27, 2012

Wow, its been a while since I did a bloggers bookmark!.. With all the lovely things I’ve been collating for myself on top of work currently.. I’ve found it hard to find the time to shrink it all down to a bitesize piece! So hopefully this little lot depicts where I’m at right now with my current styling and trends, I know it’s a little sale central.. but where isn’t!

1) SERENA DRESS: Sale! £20: Goldie via Topshop
Running wild with 50’s retro, plaid is a real late 50’s print and is a fresher summer joy for anyone trying to get away from the darker tartan prints that really depict winter. This little Goldie dress in the sale on the Topshop website is a real cheap modern treat for cracking those 50’s and white trends this season, and yes.. the belt is included!

2) Deirdre Shoe: Sale! £47: Dr.Martens
The next two items were obviously adored in direction towards wearing with the Serena dress.. and the other dress shown here by ASOS which I have now purchased.. can you see why? I am obviously (like most bloggers) a lover of mainly 80’s, 60’s and 50’s dress and are probably the best of the era’s were closest to now and ones where vintage stuff is easy to come across (I do like 40’s but it’s always really hard to find) people who search for vintage will know where I’m coming from. In conjunction with these eras Dr.Martens are a fashionistas best friend and these have the perfect amount of femininity without tearing away the unique masculine heart of a Dr.Marten shoe, a perfect amount of testosterone for my style to bring that Serena dress down a few pretty pegs.

3) 11″ Leather Black Croco Satchel: Sale! £63: Dr.Martens
And yes.. along with the Deirdre shoe I couldn’t help but look at the rest of the Dr.Marten’s sale… and nose at my favourite of the satchels which I’ve mentioned before on my blog, dreaming about how good that whole outfit would look!.. Anyone love me enough to get me these 3 numbers?

4) Pencil Dress In Gingham: Sale! £14: ASOS
Moving on.. or rather a-long.. with another dress that would go SO well with the 2 DM items.. this ASOS sale gingham number is a super Grease/Betty Boop hit (Approved by Betty Boop herself!).. At first I thought as I’m quite curvy and its white it may attack me in all the wrong places.. But it’s actually such a nice piece and although will need nude coloured undies its lilac 50’s pride will sit well in my current wardrobe. Can’t wait to wear it!

5) Perfume Bottle Pendant: Sale! £7.50: Gogo Philip
I always love the alternative long necklaces Gogo Philips creates and this is so lovely, a perfect extra bit of layering to put with ‘that’ gingham number.. and this ones with nearly £10 off!

So now you’re all up to date.. enjoy the sales! And remember to check back next week for a few more fashion articles I’ve got up my sleeve.. along with the usual Pic & Tunes!
