Best Brights for Spring 2011

The Spring 2011 collections are already hitting the online stores. After the coldest winter this year, I am ready for the sunshine to arrive and have started my search for some key spring/summer capsule pieces that will see me through the warm summer months ahead.

I'm currently loving these bright pieces:-

This Herve Leger jacquard bandage dress is just gorgeous! Let this fruit punch coloured dress do all the talking by teaming it with classic black accessories as above.
I have a wedding to go to in the summer time and I am looking for a dress like this one. I would need to win the lottery to get this Herve Ledger dress so will keep my eye out in Topshop or Reiss who I'm sure will bring out similar designs to this but at a fraction of the price!

These YSL bright blue suede pumps are currently in the sale. These will look great with a simple black dress or will add in a nice pop of glamourous colour to your old faithful  jeans.

How cute is this Balenciaga clutch bag! This bag is actually pretty big in size so it will fit loads in it. This clutch bag is from Balenciaga's new Spring summer range...............I love the style of this bag although I personally would choose another colour. I will just have to wait and see what other colours Balenciaga release this clutch in shortly!!

Net-a-Porter sale

The sale has just started today. Log on quick and see what designer bargains you can get! 
The Current/Elliott skinny cargo jeans I got the other week are now in the sale! I think that the perfect pair of jeans are so hard to find these days, and as I loved these jeans on me I ordered another pair of the combat green shade and also a pair of the classic black ones too (they are half price in the sale after all)!! I am a believer of if you find a pair of jeans that fit you well and you love them on,then get a few pairs! 
These combat style jeans look great on a night out dressed up with some heels and in the summertime with a pair of gladiator sandals too.

A happy Christmas day!

I can't beleive that Christmas day has been and gone already! After all the weeks of build up and preparing for it, it's over in a flash!!
I had the best day, spending it with my family and friends. Christmas dinner was a major success and everyone got lots of amazing gifts so fun was had by all!

I got the most amazing gifts this year, my main gift was my gorgeous green Sony Vaio laptop (which I have been glued too since I got it)!I & my stylish Marc Jacobs laptop case to put it in!! I also got a Balenciaga perfume set, Chanel perfume and the amazing Chanel Khaki nail polish (cannot wait to wear it). I also got some Alexander Wang pocket tank tops (bring on the summer weather) and my Moshino belt I was after and best of all, my Fiancee got me the gold BIBA earrings I fell in love with in the shop the other week. Just goes to show.......................they do sometimes listen!!

I was really bad this christmas and over-treated myself to loads of nice new dresses and Jeans too! That's me all shopped out for a long while now! 

My Moschino Belt

My BIBA earrings

 Wore these earrings on christmas day and everyone loved them! 

Chanel Khaki nail polish
  This limited edition AW2010 shade is a gorgeous muddy green tone which will look amazing over the winter months and also in the summer months too when teamed with bright summer clothese.

Beautiful in BIBA

The iconic fashion brand BIBA was big back in the 1930's so it's no surprise that when it launched again exclusively for House of Frasers, that's its on everyone's most wanted list.

I have fallen for these gorgeous gold-plated logo drop earrings that were released for Autumn/Winter 2010. I've been looking out for a nice pair of gold earrings and these are just gorgeous and so iconic. I do however, think I will wait until the January sales start to see if these are reduced then treat myself to them.

Stylish living

Our dining table and chairs arrived yesterday and we love them! Our dining room is a small room so we decided to go this gorgeous modern round shaped high gloss white table from Dwell. For the chairs, we decided to go for these contrasting black retro-circle chairs (also from Dwell). These chairs not only look amazing, they are really comfy too!

Adding a finishing touch and a 'pop' of colour against the white gloss table, I think our large green vase (£5.99 from Ikea) and the pink roses look gorgeous!

New Season Givenchy bags

I'm loving Givenchy's new season's bags. I really like this 'elme' bag as it reminds me of the classic Hermes birkin bag however at around £869 there is a massive price difference from the Birkin.

The not so good shopping trip...........

Well, after weeks of being super excited about going to London for a shopping trip, I came home with nothing :-(
We arrived in London around 2 hours later than scheduled due to the snow then everthing I wanted was either out of stock or not available in my size, very frustrating.
At least my mate Gillian did well on her first shopping trip to London and got her very first Alexander McQueen scarf along with some cute shoe boots from Kurt Geiger, a vintage dress and cardigan and two cute tops from Topshop..... she did very well indeed.

As if it was bad enough not being able to get a single thing I wanted, we got on the wrong train on the way back to the airport and ended up outside Essex................... the totally opposite way from the airport we were trying to get too!! Luckily we managed to get a taxi to the airport just making our flight, otherwise we would still be sitting in London airport now!

I am sooo dissapointed about the trip although chuffed to bits that Gillian did well and got loads of gorgeous things and it was fun taking her to Notting Hill and around all the Londons gems.

Fear not, fellow fashionistas, all is not lost as I have now just ordered the Alexander Wang dress I was looking for and the Current Elliott cargo jeans from Net-a-porter so they should arrive with me in a few days time,Yippeaa.

I was also after the classic Moschino belt however when we were in the Moschino boutique just off Bond Street they told us that they were sold out of the black with gold lettering belt and only had the silver lettering belt available...........hmmm, I actually never knew it came in the silver too. I tried the belt with the silver lettering on and it was gorgeous on although I want to wait and try and get the gold lettering belt as I think for me its the more classic belt like my old one I had years ago. They do have the belt available to order on the Moschino online store however I am unsure if its the silver or gold belt (doesn't state what colour it is and from the online pics it's too hard to tell). A very helpful customer service advisor from the online store is going to get back to me to confirm the colour of the belt online so if it is the gold I'll try to order it fast before it goes out of stock again.

Internet shopping saves the day!!!!

Take a Peek inside my walk-in closet.......................

Like most girls I have far too many clothes, handbags, shoes....... the list goes on!
When my fiancee and I bought our first house together we turned the smallest bedroom into a walk-in closet for me. This of course, is for me the, best place in the house!! In here I have all my dresses hanging along with my good jeans and Sass and Bide leggings. I also have most of my shoes in here and was lucky that the room originally had a built in storage cupboard which I have made into my accessories closet where my bags, jewellery etc is. 

A peek inside my walk-in closet:-

Inside my accessories closet I have 6 shelves full of accessories. I decided to line the shelves with the left over fashion wallpaper......think it looks great! :-


I have to say that all of my jeans, tops, t-shirts, tanks are hanging in the main bedroom where I also have more shoes and accessories!! I think if we win the lottery I would need a full-sized room to hold all of my clothes and accessories together in. My ideal closet would be like Maria Carey's one (as pictured below)
