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.

1: Asos Midi Bodycon Dress with Embroidered Mesh, 2: Topshop Sparkly Lurex Bodycon Dress, 3: Asos Midi Bodycon in Glitter Print, 4: Dior Vernis Nail Polish, 5: Melissa Odabash Short Crystal Set Hoop Necklace, 6: Sam Edelman 'Danielle' Pointed Heels, 7: Shoemint 'Kathryn' Pointed Pumps, 8: Yves Saint Laurent Le Rouge Pur Couture, 9: Dr Hauschka Eyeshadow, 10: Max Factor Lash Extension Effect Mascara, 11: Rimmel Soft Kohl Eyeliner Pencil

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!

1: Zara Guipure Top, 2: Office Serpent peeptoe court in Wine, 3: YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick - No. 12 'Forbidden Burgundy', 4: Topshop Bordeaux Leigh Jeans, 5: Versus Paneled leather pants, 6: Karl Lagerfeld 'Kadie' knitted sweater, 7: Carine Roitfeld for Mac Nail Polish in 'Underfire Red' 8. Alexander McQueen Pleated Leather Dress

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
