Oriental Brilliance...


Kimonos from: Topshop £55, Miss Selfridge £55, River Island £40, Zara £49.99

I don't seem to have been doing these type of posts much recently!! Oh well!!
I may be tempted to say that kimonos are my favourite trend of this season!! They are colourful, quirky and a brilliant way to express your personality!! I love all four above!! My favourite might be the  white Zara one.. But I don't know really!!!
There's no rules about what to style them either!! All brilliant brilliant pieces!!

Neon Accessories

All things bright and beautiful!! What a brilliant quote from a hymn I have just there!! Some people say it looks cheap.... Do it right though and I think it looks more chic that cheap!!! Rather marvelous I think.... So here's my top 5 neon accessories!!

5. This laser cut clutch bag from New Look is a steal for £9.99!! I love how practical it is, how it doesn't break the bank and the fact that the laser cut edge makes it a simple way to give a practical piece a high fashion edge.

4. These pretty but rock chick hair clips are in Topshop for just £2.50!! They instantly jazz up and add an edge to any outfit and I think they are rather wonderful, especially considering that they are on sale!!

3. Live like you are at a festival ever day with beautiful neon bracelets like this one from Urban Outfitters!! I love the colour!!! Sooo summery isn't it???? It's £8.00 too!!

2. I absolutely love these House of Holland long socks!! They are bright and eye-catching and I really love them!! Especially when they are on sale for £5.50!!!! They are exclusive to

1. Not so surprisingly, my favourite neon accessory would have to be a neon satchel!!!! You can get them for all sorts of prices and sizes and I think they are just the best!! I would recommend you go for a Cambridge Satchel Company or a Zatchel satchel if you really want to treat yourself!!

Do any fellow satchel owner read my blog?? Where is your satchel from??

A Fashion Dilemma

 "So I'm going to a christening and a fancy birthday party! I want an outfit (preferably a dress or a skirt and top combination) which I can wear on both occasions. Don't really want to spent more than £100 but if it's wearable and what I've already got I will spend more!"
OK!! So I asked a bunch of friends if they had any fashion dilemmas I could help solve and this was the first reply!!!!
SO!! Two trend immediately sprung to mind for these two family friendly but obviously still fashion friendly events!! I would go for monochrome minimal or bright florals!!!!
Monochrome minimal first,

Dress with pintucks

Alright, so this outfit is £89 in total!!! The dress is from Cos for £59!! I think it is great because you have loads of options with it and it is very structured and wearable whilst being still very pretty!! The jacket is from River Island and is £30!! I just think it's the kind of item you cannot possibly go wrong with and would add a lot to the dress!! The oversized style is also very flattering and is lovely to just wear all the time!!!!!!!!! When it comes to shoes, a court shoe would look good, in a block colour!! You can either stick to the monochrome and go for black or white shoes or wear super colourful bright shoes!!!

Yellow Floral Pleat Calf Skirt

This next look is more pretty pretty and is very girly!! In total The outfit is £105 but it includes shoes a skirt and a shirt so I think it's pretty good value!! The blue top is from asos and is £25!! Blue florals are seriously having a moment and I think this is a great example which goes extremely well with these lovely pink studded brogues from Kurt Geiger which are actually on sale for £39!! They are a lovely candy colour and the studs give them a rock edge!! And finally, last but not least,the beautiful lemon skirt from Topshop which is just marvelous!!! I mean yes, £48 but it's so pretty right!!!

Oh and anybody have a fashion dilemma or want a follower on gfc?? Leave a comment!!!

Killer heels- like mash potato and gravy

I apologize for all the strange foodie references but I think that some of them are quite correct!! So how are killer heels like mash and gravy?? It's simple really!! I love the idea of having at least one pair of shoes in my wardrobe that should be classed as killer!!!!!!!!!!
poisonberry, pink by Kurt Geiger LondonFrom: Kurt Geiger
Price: (reduced to) £99
Killer because: They are a loovely bright eye catching colour and are a decent height too without looking tarty!! 4.5 inches if you were wondering( also known as 11cms!) 

From: Office
Killer because: They are for one huuuge!! They are really practical at the same time though and great for dancing in and stuff because they have a wedge! The black is also wearable with lots of different colours!!! 5.5 inches for you stats fans!!! 14cms!!!

From: Miss Selfridge
Price: £65
Killer because: Do I even have to say? I mean look at them!! Completely stunning!!! Possibly my favourite?? I dunno!! same hieght as the ones above!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So where's your killer heel from?? Are you lucky enough to own a pair of Louboutins?? Jealous if you are!!

Alesha Dixon at the Britains got talent launch

I think Alesha Dixon's outfit for the launch of Britain's got talent was bang on!! It was pretty it was seasonal and the shoes went well with the floral shirt dress!! But how can you get something like that on the high street?? I had a look on H+M but to no avail! Then I had a look at Topshop and found a dress that in many ways didn't look the same, but had a similar feel and style!! It's £65! And the shoes?? Well I went for a suede pair from Office for £55!! If they're a bit too high for what you're after then Office has plenty of nude heels without the platform!!!!!!!!!!!! So there you have it! Alesha Dixon's whole outfit for £110... Think how much she must have paid... Whoosh.
