Look of the moment

cont. on from look of the week!
Loving this combination of rock chic leather jacket, bright coloured dress, skinny belt, two toned tie up heels and if I'm right, a black Hermès Birkin.

The look recreated: 1. Tracy Reese dress 2.Topshop Long Sleeve 3. Oasis Fur collar coat 4. Aldo shoes 5. Fendi Large leather tote ( on sale! much cheaper than the Birkin at least!) 6. Urban Outfitters Patent Belt

The same look but adjusted for the evening: 1. Topshop Leather Swing Jacket 2. Vanessa Bruno Athé dress 3. Alexis Bittar earrings 4. French Connection Sequin Belt to sparkle up the outfit! 5. Chloé leather clutch 6. Dune black patent boots

How about this rock chic look for the New Year's Eve party?

Since I've got some exams to do in 2 weeks - lots of revising to do :( , I won't be posting as frequent as before, it'll probably be every other day :)

All these beautiful dresses

are on sale! Can you believe it? I'm so excited about the sales this year, January is the month where my bank balance is at its lowest! So many bargains so little time ;)

I love the delicate embroideries on this gorgeous Marchesa black and white cocktail dress...

and how elegant is this Chloé gown, the yellow silk is so romantic and I can so imagine it on the red carpet!


Also loving this chic dress by Fendi, the silk is so lush and I love the cute bow belt touch!
don't forget this Moschino's strapless cocktail dress, the ruffled bustier and a flash of crimson at the waist is so elegant and adds a dash of colour!

Merry Christmas!

This is probably going to be my last post before Christmas so I just wanted to say a Merry Christmas to everyone! Hope you will all have a wonderful time!

I wish this every year and nothing is changed, I still wish it could snow around Christmas, doesn't look like it's going to happen since today was like 10C!

Also loving these indoor evening wreaths at the moment!

I went to the new shopping centre in a nearby city today (Cabot Circus in Bristol), it was a successful and not so sucessful trip. It was a huge success as I have been looking for a new coat for ages and I bought two today! ( used a gift card for one of them so I ended up with two coats while really only paid for one!)

It wasn't so successful in the way of the main point of going shopping today was to buy my boyfriend a present, I bought everyone else's 3 weeks ago and Jeremy so far has no presents, not even a card! Guys are just so hard to buy, especially J has very specific tastes & while DVDs and books are always welcome, he gets all that from his family. So the hunt goes on, wish me luck as I'm heading into town centre tomorrow to keep searching!

What did you buy for your hubby/boyfriend or guys in your family this Christmas? Any ideas are most welcome!

Last Minute Gift Ideas

or more correctly "Things I would LOVE to Find In My Stocking!"
Chloe Eau de Parfum Gift Set - Ok, this might not fit in a stocking but I just LOVE how elegant and retro the bottles are!

Mulberry heart shaped keyrings - it takes me ages everytime to find my keys in my bag so hopefully with a big keyring I would be able to find them more easily! The fact they're so pretty helps too ;)


Gucci heart-shaped coin purse - A lot more afforable than many other Gucci items, aren't they just the sweetest thing?

Lulu Guinness Zig Zag Print Mini Frame Purse - Vintage with a little twist?
Anya Hindmarch Lloyd key pouch - I just LOVE the colour & its simple design!

Realistically what are the changes of me getting these gorgeous items? None, but a girl can dream ;)

Vintage Friday: Disco Light!

Well, not really a disco light but this gorgeous Patricia Urquiola Caboche suspension light's look is pure 1970s decadence! Imagine how good your New Year's Party would look with this hanging off your living room ceiling?

Happy Weekend everyone! Christmas is so close now!

This Works!

I love the simple, clean packaging of the beauty brand This Works, with an equally direct message as it's brand name too. I have some of their products on my list to Santa this year and really hope I get one so I could try them out!




and how cute is this little cracker! A perfect stocking filler!

I love these cute vintage pillows at Hudson with their pastel colours and the white linen. Vintage Feed bags are cut and reworked to make these unique toss pillows. Don't them look so calm & cosy, perfect for sleeping off a cold!
