A lace story

Lace is big news at the moment! The now famous red lace dress seen on the Erdem catwalk sparked off an influx of lace dresses in the stores.

Cartoon capers!

Sometimes, I like to inject an element of fun or 'kookiness' into my outfits - today I felt like a bit of comic relief! Here's my favourite 'Wonder Woman' t-shirt worn with a swirly skirt.
T-shirt from Primark and skirt from H&M.

The comeback... Seventies reborn!

Hi all. After a long long time away, I'm happy to report that I'm back on the blogging scene!
This time I have no excuses as to why there's been a long drought of my 'bloginess' (new word!). So I will just continue as if there's been no break and will be posting hopefully some interesting articles in the coming days, weeks and months etc. In the meantime here's a little something for you to ponder. As the autumn\winter months are fast approaching and the fashion weeks are taking place as I speak and the stores are now stocking their interpretation of trends this autumn\winter, what will we be wearing? I'm definitely loving the 70's trends, the return of deep autumn colours (mustard's, reds, teals and browns), I can't wait to start planning ahead. I have already purchased a few key items that I will be putting towards my 70's look and will be posting images as soon as I can. One of my favourite high end designs - Gucci had a 70s influence in their Fall 2011\2012 catwalk show. I love the long flowing maxi dresses worn with exuberant coloured fur coats!

I had been eagerly waiting for my new leather biker jacket which I bought from ASOS Curve. I've never owned a leather jacket and as it was on sale at an unbelievable price, it was the perfect opportunity for me to get one! As soon as it arrived I had a small dilema...what do I wear it with? So, while it took me several days to decide what look would go with the jacket, it stayed hung up in my wardrobe! I'm a little bit crazy and insecure with outfits I put together that sometimes it takes a little time for me to have the confidence to wear it...crazy I know! Anyway the look I eventually put together came about in a sort of random way. I woke up one morning deciding that the jacket had to be worn that day and out of the blue, the look came together!

Handbags and gladrags!

Today, I decided I would have a 'spring-clean'. The sun was out and it felt like a good time to tidy-up the ever expanding wardrobe. Little did I realise what I was letting myself in for! Four hours later, the wardrobe had been reorganised. The only problem was the pile of handbags I had on my bed! Handbags and shoes are one of my shopping weaknesses. With every outfit, I almost always have to have a handbag to go with it. The end result is a huge collection of bags! I will have to consider downsizing my collection as I literally have no room for them. I suppose I will have to give them away to friends\family?
You can see just a small collection of my favourites below.
