Halloween Weekend!

Before I get into this post I just want to let everyone know that my laptop suddenly died on me two days ago! So I can't really do any posts until it's fixed because this one is ridiculously slow :(
However, until it's fixed, here are some pictures of my look from a Halloween party on Saturday! I went as Twilight's Bella (vampire version!). I will go into more detail when I can post properly!
Hope you all have an amazing Halloween, whatever you are doing!

Pre Contacts!

Recent Outfits...

Some pictures from recent nights out! I'm annoyed at myself for not getting any whole outfit shots! (But i've put a picture of the shoe underneath so you can get the idea!) 

1: TFNC London sequin dress, Balenciaga envelope clutch bag, Zara glitter sandals.
2. ASOS lace back skater dress, Chanel 2.55 Flap bag, YSL Tribute sandals.

I really love both outfits! I'm looooving the metallic, sparkly trend right now, so I loved pairing up the TFNC London dress with my Zara glitter heels for a girly, chic shimmering look! I carried a Balenciaga clutch to add some edge!
The white ASOS skater dress is one of my favourite dresses and I love being able to dress it up and down! The back of the dress is fabulous sheer lace! I paired this dress with metallic pewter YSL Tribute sandals and my Chanel 2.55 flap bag!

Wearing Burgundy

I did a post (see here) a couple of weeks ago on the current burgundy trend, and have since picked up a few gorgeous pieces! I'm now thinking of Wintery ways to style burgundy, so here's a few ideas!

First things first- makeup! I think, if you are going to use burgundy tones in your make up, it's best to keep the rest simple, as burgundy is very bold! I would personally use burgundy for my eyes and/or lips, keeping the rest really subtle!

I am in love with Kristen's shimmering, smouldering eyes here! I love how she kept the rest of her makeup neutral and subtle using very little blusher and nude lipgloss. 

I personally feel that for a gorgeous Winter look, burgundy looks fabulous against bronzes, golds and blacks! Have a lovely Monday! Lots of Love,

Christmas Wishlist 2012

It's officially that time of year again! I love the festive season, and I know as soon as the Halloween festivities start, it's time to start getting ready for Christmas! I'm lusting over sparkle and super fabulous pieces this Winter- here's my (current) wishlist ;)

I have a feeling 'Santa' has already picked up on my 'subtle' hints, so i'm ridiculously excited for Christmas! What are you wishing for this year?

Kristen's Look For Less!

Kristen Stewart has without a doubt become a style icon in recent months! Her edgy, minimal look is just so effortless, sophisticated & purely stunning! When I heard Kristen was the new face of Balenciaga, I immediately thought they've found the perfect girl to represent the brand- just like them she's bold, edgy & effortlessly sexy! 
Her recent go-to look on the red carpet has been pairing up sophisticated bodycon dresses with pointy stiletto heels, minimal jewellery & bold, but simple, make up.

Autumn Trend- Burgundy

Deep Reds are very on trend this Autumn! Shopping this week, I noticed so many people wearing gorgeous burgundy pieces- including accessories and make up! I also lusted over many of the pieces I came across in the many fabulous shops in Liverpool! I am in love with this colour, it's the perfect shade for Autumn- reminding me of a rich, warm mulled wine!
For a fabulous, warm, wintery look, i'd match deep reds with blacks, golds and browns!

Paris is my favourite place in the whole world! I love everything about the place- the beauty of the City, the architecture, the food, the people and above all, the fashion. Paris in general inspires me to make an effort to get dressed! So here are my favourite looks from my trip in late July.

1. Jones & Jones 'Poppy' DressPrada Swirl Sunglasses, Chanel 2.55 flap bag.

Get the Point!

The past few months, I couldn't help but notice a rapid rise in pointed high heels! Its safe to say the pointy high heel trend is well and truly back, and at it's height this past month especially, with my favourite celeb style icons wearing them at all the big September events, such as NY Fashion Week and the film festivals. 

1&7: Manolo Blahnik 'BB' Pointed Pumps, 2&3: Jimmy Choo 'Anouk' Pumps, 4: Proenza Schouler colourblock cap toe pumps, 5: Christian Louboutin Pigalle Spikes 120 studded leather pumps, 6: Lanvin Pointed-Toe Asymmetric Leather Pumps, 8,9,10&11: Casadei 'Blade' pointed pumps

I absolutely love really high, pointed heels! They are so timeless, classic, look amazing with anything, and give you a super sexy and sophisticated look! They can be worn with jeans, skinny pants, dresses and even for work!
I plan on buying many pairs, but i'm desperate to splurge on a pair of Christian Louboutin Pigalle heels in black patent (The 120 obviously) because I actually cannot think of a more perfect, classic, sexy shoe! For me, it's THE pointy heel.
But until I can afford the splurge, i've been looking at High Street alternatives, and quite frankly, i'm spoilt for choice! Here are some of my favourites.

1: Boutique 9 'Justine' Pumps, 2: Topshop 'Galactic' studded heels, 3: Dune 'Bernie' Leopard Pointed Heels, 4: Zara 'Mirrored Court Shoe', 5: Topshop 'Game2' pointed heels, 6: Shoemint 'Kathryn' leather pointed pumps

Some from Down Under...

I had THE most awesome time in Australia, but I will not forget the 4 days we spent in Singapore on the way there! The culture is incredible, the weather, people, food and SHOPPING! OMG Orchard Road- Abercrombie & Fitch, Prada, Miu Miu, Chanel... all on one road! 

Here are some pictures from my trip! (Click to enlarge)

At the pool in Singapore Novotel- Clarke Quay

Being Traditional! Eating at a food market, in the middle of the road!

Amazing food!

Our first stop in Australia was Sydney
Even though it was their winter, I couldn't resist Bondi beach, 
I think the Australians thought I was insane!

Running into the waves :)

After drying off!

Sydney is just stunning!

Sydney Harbour Bridge!

Our next stop was the Gold Coast, warmer winter weather! It's literally surfer's paradise!

Then we headed up to Tropical North Queensland (Hooray hot weather!) 
I can't even describe how beautiful the beaches and rainforests are. View from my hotel room at the 

Crocodile in the rainforest! 

I loved walking along those beaches, I love that life!

The Great Barrier Reef!

I went to a family wedding up in Cairns, it was just perfect!

I took over a thousand pictures while I was away and I can't wait to share more of them, there's just so many! I had an amazing time, and I can't wait to go back! 

New Makeup!

Just trying out some new makeup for a party on Friday night, It looks so much heavier on the camera than in the mirror though- weird!

New York Fashion Week 09/2012- Leather, Leather, Leather...

Leather made frequent appearances on the runways at the latest New York Fashion Week. From all leather dresses by the likes of Calvin Klein & Alexander Wang to pretty leather skirts and panelling by Jason Wu & Mandy Coon- just to name a few! I'm really excited that the leather trend is still going strong for S/S 2013, a leather panel on a delicate dress instantly gives it a sexier, edgier look so i'm dying to work this trend into my wardrobe! 

Personally I love subtle leather looks, like a leather skirt with a pretty top to make it edgier but not over the top! Just because its more appropriate for everyday life! A simple dress with a leather trim or collar detail could be worn to work, or out in the day, but can be dressed up for the night! so here are some of my favourites!

1. Miss Selfridge Leather Printed Maxi Dress 2. J Brand Dyan Sweatshirt Dress 3.Zara Quilted Leather Skirt 4. TrouvĂ© Faux Leather Bib Top 5. Sanctuary Faux Leather Shift Dress 6. Sister Jane Tweed Skater Dress with Faux Leather Collar and Studs

I love the Miss Selfridge dress, it's perfect for a girly night out! And the Sanctuary leather shift dress would be great for a date night!

Look for Less!

I'm in love with the 'Bubble' necklace from J Crew, it's perfect for bringing an outfit to life instantaneously and can be worn both day & night!

However at £125 a pop, I felt it was a little steep for costume jewellery! So needing this necklace in my life, I went on a little hunt, knowing that a faithful High Street brand would supply me this look for much less, and I was right!
New Look have an identical necklace for £8.99!!!! That saves £116 to spend on necklaces in other colours, or a new pair of heels... ;)

Save at New Look
Splurge at J.Crew

4. Converse: Schuh 5. Playsuit: Motel @ Topshop

Early Autumn Styles...

Once September comes, the leaves seem to automatically fall on cue, and you start to anticipate the colder weather. And while shopping for gorgeous new knitwear, jeans and other wintery delights are ever so important, take advantage of the warmer autumn weather of September!
Probably one of my favourite months as I love the blend of warmth with the odd crisp chill! It's the inbetween of Summer & Winter- ie: the best of both! Remember to mix it up a little and keep a mix of both in your outfit choices!

For a night out, keep it simple but show some skin! Bare legs and arms with minimal jewellery is a great look for Autumn! Paired up with ankle boots and a fur jacket to keep you warm!

Dress £42- Topshop
Booties £95- River Island
Necklace £125- J Crew

Have fun shopping all the new A/W collections- just remember the colder seasons are not just about cable-knit sweaters and Ugg boots!

Falling in Love with Fall Fashion!

I cannot believe how long its been since I have posted anything! So much has happened since my last post 7 months ago-
I had my final deadlines and exams, I travelled around Australia, I graduated university with a Law degree(!!!!), I turned 21, and I visited my favourite place in the world, ever, Paris!
Inbetween all of that important stuff though, I shopped, shopped, shopped!
I will do some posts on Australia and all the goodies I bought for my trip, but right now i'm OBSESSED with Autumn styles.

Autumn fashion is my absolute favourite! I love Autumn, I love the colours and the smells, I love that its almost Christmas (Lol!) and I just love layering up in gorgeous coats, scarves, boots and anything warm & wintery!

I actually have a favourite scent for Autumn, at first I actually didn't like it so much, but it's just so beautiful and warm- I'm in love!
Karl Lagerfeld's 'Sun, Moon & Stars' will get you so inspired for Autumn buying it's insane. As soon as I smell it I want to raid Topshop for a knitted jumper and boots, and take a walk in the falling leaves in the park! It's a gorgeous blend of Orange, Vanilla, Musk, Sandalwood and other exotic smells- so do give it a try and see if it inspires you! (Purchase Here).

Free People Order

So I posted a big list of goodies I bought in January here, but i've not posted pics of them all yet! My order from Free People consisted of the 'Jenoah' floppy hat in Taupe, and an FP One blouse :)
They are both super fab, i'm very pleased!
