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!”

Trend & Save

August 11, 2012

So it’s finally the weekend.. And the above post of skittles vodka is going to be one of my experiment this weekend for my night out soon! I’m not a huge drinker but since one of my good friends from Art College and my best mates are in our home town again I though I’d celebrate.. its been too long :( But now on to the post..

1) Gold-tone cameo ring: £185: Alexander McQueen via Net-A-Porter
2) Skull Sovereign Ring: £6: ASOS

I searched absolutely high and low for a copy cat to this Alexander McQueen cameo because it is to DIE for! I’ve always loved gun metal on gold and have the House Of Harlow Triquetra ring in my collection which I love as it’s the perfect tone of metals to add texture to any monochrome outfit and this McQ is another on trend example.
Now I know the ASOS version is nowhere near a dupe but I could not find a single decent version anywhere.. I partly think I was blinded by the beauty of the McQ so finding something better was a little difficult.. Well that’s what in going with anyway.

Enjoy the weekend!

Bits and Bobs

August 14, 2010

After a couple of weeks I’ve finally had the time to sit down and show you a few bits of either vintage pieces that I’ve been given by family or things that I have bought recently that I love a lot <3

Starting in the bottom left hand corner moving clockwise:
1. A vintage sterling silver flower brooch
2. Dior ‘Les Parfums’ perfume set including Dior’s Dolce Vita, J’adore, Hypnotic Poison, Dior Addict 2 and Miss Dior Cherie around £50
3. Givenchy’s Phenomen’eyes Mascara, £19.50 from Debenhams
4. A vintage cameo necklace
5. A vintage sterling silver rose pendant
6. Victorian vintage copy heart watch, £30 by Past Times
7. Vintage crocodile skin 1960’s/1970’s purse/bag
8. The matching brooch to my vintage sterling silver rose pendant (number 5)
9. Off white Maddox shoe with brass buckles, £30 and currently half price in the sale at Topshop
10. Vintage 1980’s Tapestry print weekend bag bought on Ebay for £27

I love all these little vintage pieces that I’ve either been given or bought and I think they are so much better price and look wise than some of the copies that are out at the moment on the high street for double the price. For example this Tapestry bag at a shocking £40 from Topshop

Also although the price for the Dior Miniatures was quite steep they’re great for travelling purposes which I’ve used them for a couple of times, but also they are so cute to look at due to the size of them when they’re sitting together in a set. Look at the size of my miniature Miss Dior Cherie next to my thumb! (excuse the nail)

Is there anything you’ve bought or been given recently that your proud of?
