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!”

Generic christmas present post

January 4, 2011

I know I know please don’t remind me that everybody on god’s green earth that has a blog does a ‘christmas present’ post.. but it is a lot of fun and I’m suuure you’d like to see all my lovely new things and maybe be inspired a little??? I’ll take that as a yes!
So although the wonderfully stressful christmas is over and its time to get back to the old 9-5 (thank god!), I’ve now come back to uni and have been sadly separating my presents from their ‘christmas pile’ (everybody does that right?) and been looking over them happily as santa really did show his appreciation for my hard work this year!

Due to the fact I can’t contain my excitement anymore I will reveal that Santa did send me yet more Barbour items as I am officially obsessed!! This year I received the waxed cotton beadnell jacket in a red (which is a very different colour for the current climate of Barbour fashion) with a camel coloured tartan interior and it is absolutely B-E-A-UTIFUL!!

But so soon after I received this amazing gift that santa excelled himself and gave me the matching camel tartan tote bag to go with it, which is going to be so handy at uni as it has a laptop holder inside as well as being an adorable bag!
So not only am I going to be looking cute and toasty at uni but I’m also extremely geeked up and organised with my new bag! Win win!!

I also received a Bedcrumb makeup bag from my cousins boutique vainglorious full of makeup extras, make up brushes from topshop and some wolford ‘hero’ tights as seen on Cheryl Tweedy which I think due to the price tag I will be saving for a special night out :s

I then received lots of christmas money which I spent some of on 2 Topshop jumpers, a headscarf from oasis and an amazing all saints scarf below..

…and last but by definitely no means least my lovely engraved silver ring I received from my boyfriend making me shed quite a few tears on christmas day…

I’m really happy with all my new things as you can imagine and must now get back to my uni portfolio and work just as hard to ensure I receive more nice things next year :)
