The Party Dress Wishlist!

Party Dress Wishlist

Christmas is really racing towards us and that means that they’ll be plenty of parties to go to. That also means that you’ll need a show stopper of a dress so I thought I would gather a few of my favourites from Asos to show you.

1. Ivyrevel Velvet Dress with Cross Over Detail 

Textures are big this season, especially velvet so my first choice is this gorgeous velvet cross over detail dress. It also has a leopard print in this beautiful deep peacock green colour. It’s such an interesting dress and even though there’s a  lot going on, it really works. It’ll go great with a pair of black heels or boots.

2. Asos Sequin Cami Wrap Midi Dress

Next up is this bright blue sequinned midi dress, it’s really pretty. This festive period is the time to be wearing sequins and this will be the talk of the party. It’s a little daring with the V – neck cross over and skirt split but team it with silver or black accessories to let the dress do the talking.

3. Asos Floral Sparkle Embellished Tulle Mini Dress

This is the dress that I think of when someone says of festive parties – with the tulle skirt and the embellishment, you can never be over the top. Team this dress with black accessories and a red lippie to be the best dressed of the night.

4. Paper Dolls One shoulder Crochet Lace Dress

You can’t go wrong with a red dress for this time of year and this lace crochet one is right on trend. It’s bright so you’ll really stand out. The one shouldered style is really starting to come back in too. Wear this with simple black or silver accessories, hair up and a statement earring and you can’t go wrong.

5. Asos Corset Waist Detail Midi Dress

A LBD is one of the best things to wear at a party at any time of year. I’ve chosen this one as it’s a little quirky and different with the T-shirt style but it still creates the most amazing silhouette with that waist line and midi skirt. Pop a statement shoe on and add a bright lip to bring this look together.

6. Little Mistress All Over Ombre Sequin Mini Bodycon Dress 

One of my favourite styles of dress is the sequinned body-con. You can dress them up with a high heel, a bright lip and wavy hair or dress it down with a flat shoe or boot, hair up and a nude lip . It’s simple yet sophisticated and it’s something you can keep on coming back to.

Will you be buying and of these dresses or have you got one of them ready to bring out for a fun evening out on the town? Let me know in the comments below.

The Wednesday Going Out Wishlist!

Going Out Wishlist

I am loving winter party wear at the moment and with a few on the horizon, I thought I would gather my favourite bits together to show you.

1. AX Paris Plum Lace Midi Dress

First up is the Plum coloured lace midi dress from AX Paris. It’s perfect for those Christmas parties and maybe even just a night out on the town. Teamed with a black pair of heels, bag and jacket it will have everyone complimenting you.

2. River Island Silver and Pink Sequinned blazer

This time of year sequins can do no wrong and the two toned blazer from River Island is a corker.Wear it with something plain like a pair of jeans and heels and it’ll be the main feature of your outfit. You’ll be remembered!

3. Topshop Lips Printed Frill Blouse

I have this Lip print frill blouse in a few different designs and this one recently caught my eye when I was in the shop. The print is ultra cute and the style of shirt is easy to throw on with some jeans, a skirt or a pair of trousers. It’ll be great in the day time but also for those evenings when you have to run off to a date.

4. Next Navy Pleated Midi Skirt

One of the most recent trends that keeps on coming around year after year is the pleated midi. This navy pleated skirt from Next is ultra cool, with a great texture, weight and colour. It will go great with a knit and boots for work or some heels and a camisole for the evening. This is a look that I’ll be checking out!

5. Vila Asymmetric knit

Lastly I’ve chosen this gorgeous white Vila Asymmetric knit. It’s a little different with the ribbing and style but it will keep you warm in this colder weather. It will go really well with a skirt or just a plain pair of jeans and heels for an evening out at the pub with some friends. White is such a wintery colour too.

Wednesday Wishlist!

wednesday-wishlist

 

Wishlist Wednesday is a little late this week but I have so many lovely things to show you, lets get straight into it.

1. Mac liptensity lipstick – Mulling Spices

First up is this fab Liptensity Lipsticks from Mac. It’s a beautiful deep red from the new range that came out at the end of last year. Mulling Spices is great for this time of the year. The lips itself has a fab colour pay off but melts to the lips like a lip balm so it will keep your lips nourished in this colder weather.

2. New Look – Navy Cable Knit Cardigain

I really love a good cardigan to layer over t-shirts and short sleeves dresses. It’s a great way to give some longevity to your Autumn wardrobe. This thick Cable knit from New Look is perfect and will look amazing with a multitude of outfits. It also comes in a number of different colours too.

3. Hush – Short Parka

I’m loving this gorgeous little black Parka from Hush. I seriously want everything from this shop. It’s an expensive one but the quality is amazing and you know it will last. This jacket looks seriously warm with the faux fur lining the full jacket which is just what you need in this weather. It will go with everything and the style is up to date and so in season right now too.

4. Missoma – Starlight half star studs

I’m in love with these Starlight half star studs from Missoma Jewellery from this company at the moment is well sort after and I can see why.  These earrings are such a statement but one that you could get away with wearing every day. You are sure to get everyone talking about them!

5. Silk Fred – Black Faux Suede Over the Knee Boots

Over the knee boots are a trend that comes back every year. I never thought I would ever suit something like this but personal styles changes and allows for new things all the time. Over the knee boots can be tacky but I’ve found that the heel shape is key to this and these boots from Silkfred are lovely and actually a really great dupe for the Weitzman boots too.

6. Hush – Sintra Shirt

Like I said earlier I really do love everything from Hush so my second choice for this wish list is this ultra cool mini lightning bolt print Sintra shirt. It’s great quality so it’s going to look great for a long time both tucked in or left untucked, and also is great for layering too. It’s that investment piece you can rely on. I’m also a huge Bowie fan so it has a double meaning for his fans too.

Are you loving the products in this wish list? Do you have any of these products or do you have your eye on one or two of them ? Let me know in the comments below or over on my Twitter.

September Favourites 2017

The weather is starting to get colder and I’ve been loving plenty of transitional pieces in September so I thought I would share a few of my favourites with you this month.

IMG_1516

First up is a fashion favourite, a gorgeous pair of pearlescent Superga trainers. I was given these by my lovely husband for our wedding anniversary in September and I’ve been wearing them every since. They go with everything and look so stylish and I mustn’t for get to tell you how comfy these trainers are. They needed no wearing in and I’ve walked so far in them already. I’m thinking of going back to get the black leather ones with the white sole soon too. I think they’ve started an obsession.

IMG_1517

Next up is a book, I Heart Forever by Lindsay Kelk. I’m a big fan of all of her books especially the I Heart Series that follows Angela and her friends so when the most recent instalment was released in September I hot footed it down to my nearest shop to get it. I do love delving into the world of books especially when it’s cold, wet and windy and I read this within just a few days. It’s a great read and it has a real cliff hanger at the end of the book too so go and have a read.

IMG_1525

Next up is a mascara that I was ultra keen to try out. It’s the Paradise Extatic mascara by L’oreal. It has beautiful matte and shiny rose old packaging which looks expensive. I love the brush size and shape as it gets to all of those hard to reach eye lashes but still maintaining the ease of use. The formulation of the mascara is great too and it gives amazing length while combing through and separating the lashes.

IMG_1528

The Pixi 24K Eye Elixir is a recent purchase and it’s one that I loved straight away.  It’s a great multi tasking product as it has plenty of anti- aging properties that will help with freshening the eyes and the roller ball itself that you can also pop in the fridge for a ice cold treat for the eyes. I feel so awake after using it and it’s ultra delicate too.

IMG_1531

Bobbi Brown have recently brought out the Crushed Lip Colours and I’m loving using these fab colours in the past month. The one that I went for the most is the colour Bare – it’s a lovely darker nude that really looks great at this time of year. The product itself feels like a lip balm but has a deep colour pay off and they aren’t drying either. Perfect!

IMG_1533

IMG_1534

Last up is this Candle from Tiptree at Wilkin and Sons. This company is really close to where I live and they’re normally known for their yummy marmalades and jams but they’ve also branched out into making other products too. We’ve tried the diffuser in the Lemon Curd Scent and it was amazing – it smells just like freshly baked lemon meringue pie. The smell makes my mouth water every time I get a whiff so I thought I should pick up the candle too. They’re organically made and naturally sourced which is a bonus. They also have tiny versions of these so that you can sample a few so if you spot them anywhere do go and have a sniff.

Wednesday Autumn Wishlist!

Wednesday Autumn Wishlist

Wednesday Autumnal Wishlist!

Autumn is that transitional time of year when the lighter layers and the boots come out and it’s one of my favourite times of year. I mean who doesn’t love Halloween and Fireworks night. I thought I would gather together a few of my favourite bits in the shops right now to show you.

Chanel – City Lights Palette

First up is this beautiful Limited Edition Chanel City Lights Palette . Four pretty Autumnal colours, there’s a natural pink to illuminate, an auburn toned brown, a grey toned brown both to blend over the eye and a deep brown to add depth. They’re all different textures matte, satin, iridescent and metallic. They make for a really gorgeous look and it’s one that everyone should go and test out.

Mint Velvet – Rose Gold Metallic Ombre Knit

I must really be really loving this metallic trend because this is the second item in this Wishlist. This Rose Gold Metallic Ombre Knit from Mint Velvet is a really pretty colour with a fab warm knit. I’m loving the ribbed effect as the style really reminds me of a Victoria Beckham jumper that has been all over Instagram. It’s also in the sale so I might just rush out and buy it now.

H and M – Monkey Patterned Skirt

I love my basics but occasionally I love a beautiful item to change up my wardrobe a little and this gorgeous monkey patterned skirt from H and M is that item. It’s super neutral and would be fab with a neutral jumper and heels or boots. I love it!

New Look – Black Floral Print Pocket Front Midi Shirt Dress

At this time of year I love wearing tea dresses and shirt dresses with a little warm jacket or a jumper. This gorgeous black floral print pocket front midi shirt dress from New Look is a perfect dress to do that with. It would be so pretty with a high sock boot, which is so on trend right now.

Office – Logan Point Chelsea Boots

Lastly I’ve chosen these Logan Point Chelsea Boots from Office . I live in a heeled chelsea boot in the Autumn. They’re so flattering on the legs, and they really do go with everything. You could wear these with a dress and tights or with a pair of jeans and the wide heel is also great if it gets a little frosty too. This particular pair are also currently in the sale. Bargain!

What items have you been picking up now the weather has got a little colder, and will you be picking up any of these items? Let me know in the comments below or on twitter.

Dr Martens Chelmsford Shop Opening

I love when there’s a new shop opening, I was invited down to Chelmsford for the opening of the brand new Dr Martens shop on Bond Street and the celebrations did not disappoint. People flocked to the shop with queues seeping into the town centre, to see the new products and the local band that were performing. With influences such as The Clash and The Streets, Ratboy had the crowd both inside and outside the shop working up a storm. People bounced, chanted and sung along with them as they enjoyed not one but two sets due to how many people there were.

There was cool art work and Dr Martens products also all around the shop for people to enjoy and I picked out a few of my favourite pieces.  First up are these gorgeous Magdalena Aunt Sally boots, they’ll go with anything as they’re so versatile. They’ll work fabulously with a dress and cardi for the Autumn and for the Winter they’ll go great with jeans and a warm jumper.

I love these Vonda boots – with the iconic Dr Martens flat boot and red embroidered roses, this stunner will make any outfit. They’re a stand out boot, and ones that you’ll want to bring out year after year. The Tassel Brando Leather Saddle bag is a roomy bag with a card holder slot inside. It’s a beautiful colour with an over the shoulder strap and is one that will get many people talking too.

Anniversary Wish List!

Anniversary Wishlist

I’m off to Berlin next week with my husband as it’s our wedding anniversary – three years, how did that even happen. The weather is getting colder so I’ve put together a few things that might be nice to wear for this special trip away.

1. First up is this gorgeous red and black skirt from H and M, it’s the star style of skirt for the season and the print of this one is so pretty. It will go perfectly with a black t-shirt or an all in one and a leather jacket.

2. Next up is this gorgeous long sleeve black and white spot dress from New Look. In the Autumn I live in these dresses with heels and a cute cardigan or jacket. This one is perfect for walking around the city, and exploring, teamed with some trainers.

3. Next up is this gorgeous Ted Baker dress. I love the Kyoto Gardens pattern and the style, it’s so effortless to wear. Teamed with a pair of heels and a pale jacket it’s perfect for a wedding but teamed with cardi or a leather jacket and some heels. This outfit is perfect for an anniversary meal.

4. I saw someone wearing a beautiful and unique pair of Converse on the train the other day. I spend most of my time running errands, and walking a lot of miles especially when exploring a new city like Berlin so this black leather pair of Converse with white soles seemed perfect. They’ll go with everything.

5. Debenhams shoe hall is full of amazing designer dupes. I love these Faith lace up boots particularly as they’re really fab dupes for the Gucci heels that are everywhere right now. They’ll go with skirts and jeans and see you right through Winter too. Bonus!

6. Finally I’ve been looking for a red bag for the last few months that would go with my wardrobe and I think this might be the one. As I’ve said before red is going to be big this season, so this Belsize bag from Hobbs with it’s cross strap and its smaller size will be great for travelling as well as every day use.

A beautiful Autumn WishList!

Autumn Wishlist

I love a good wish list and I’ve put together one with lots of products for Autumn. Fresh colours, lots of textures but also fun stylish pieces. Keep reading if you want to know more.

1. First up is this gorgeous black dress bodycon with polo neck, it’s a gorgeous yet simple number that would be equally stylish with a jacket and Converse, thigh high flat boots or heels. A perfect basic for Autumn!

2. Red is going to be really big this season and these bright red Asos tailored, high waisted balloon tapered trousers are perfect for showing off this trend. Such a beautiful colour. Keep it simple with a plain camisole and jacket.

3. Everyone needs something cute in their wardrobe and this Asos cat t-shirt is super cute! A t-shirt is perfect for lounging around the house but will look amazing teamed with a mini skirt, leather jacket and heels.

4. I’ve been on the hunt for a quirky yet classic little bag and this Karl Lagerfeld Ikonic shoulder bag  seems right up my street. Karl Lagerfeld bags are bold, different but somehow they always stay classic and on trend to the end. I love the size, and shape. It will really make every outfit pop.

5. You can never beat a fab pair of pjs to cheer you up when you’re down and to make you feel ultra pampered. These ASOS Space Tee and leggings combo are perfect!

6. The shearling jacket has been huge this past year and the trend shows no signs of disappearing. I found this Boohoo contrast aviator style jacket . It’s super cool and will keep you toasty warm too. I might be jumping to buy this one before it sells out.

7. Last but by no means least are these swish Pretty Little Thing pearl embellished jeans. I love this trend as it’s so delicate and bold. It’s a statement design that only a few people can get away with. Have you tried them?
