Topshop ALBA boots

Proud owner of these beauty’s managed to get hold of them even though they’re sold out everywhere. Managed to get them down Roman Road Market for half the retail price of £50 what a stroke of luck 🙂

I actually brought pair for my mum too but unfortunately she finds them uncomfortable (whereas I find them super comfortable) so im selling them on my Ebay shop. Started the bidding at £25 which is what I paid can’t say fairer then that. They’re a size 6 EU39.

I hope I find a new home for them…

Ahhhh if only I had £1,075.00 in the bank this beauty would be MINE!

MIA in Versace

4 Jul

Check out MIA looking fierce in Versace at Donatella Versace’s return to The Ritz, Paris during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. I’m a huge fan of MIA and an even bigger fan of this look she looks gorge it’s nice to see her glammed up (although she does do dressed down very well too) I love the white and gold jacket and the bright red lips really give this look a fun 80s inspired twist.

It would appear that MIA and Donatella have a mutual admiration, MIA was spotted front row at Versaces fall 2011 presentation and the also collaborated for this shoot in W Magazine

MIA’s style is defo not for the faint hearted, and is a BIG fashion marmite. I personally love her, what do you guys think is MIA a fashion fave or a fashion fail?

Crown Jewels

2 Jul

Here are some pretty jewels I found in Freedom at Outfit. The best thing about these beauties that they were all half price in the sales #winning. Topshop always do the best Jewellery sales I love scouring through them during sale season.

Jeffery Campbell studded Litas

These have been about for a while and I love them. Unfortunately I am an epic size 7 foot and I tried them on in Office and made my feet look like big ole boats. Ahhh the perils of being a larger footed lady 😦

You can get a hold of these beauties in selected office stores and retailing at £145 they also doing them on the Dolls Boutique website (although they’re often sold out)

Do any of you own a pair of Litas? How would you style them?

Oh Pat!

29 Jun

One of my biggest style icons is Pat Butcher. I was gutted when they (cruelly) killed her off!  Pat’s love of Leopard print , Big Earrings and well groomed hair and make up are definitely things that are important in my own personal style, I think every girl needs a bit of what I call Pat Butcher Swag. Here are some of my favourite Pat Butcher looks.

Here’s my version of Pat Butcher Swag which I wore to Hackney Weekender, this Bomber Jacket was just £25 at my local Beyond Retro…

What’s your favourite Pat Butcher Look? Mine is 100% the leopard print coat! 🙂

On my travels

10 Jun

Hi Guys welcome to my first Blog Post! I thought I’d start by showing you some of my latest purchases.

The title of this Blogpost is somewhat ironic as the furthest I actually travelled was to see my grandad in Bristol ( with a pit stop in Swindon) but I did manage to pick up some cool bits the best part being all of them were reduced or on sale. More pictures to follow with me actually wearing these items on my actual summer adventures but that’s another blog post 😉
