Must have mini

Oh, this mini skirt by Adam is half price in the sale on the outnet.com
I love this bright canary yellow shade...........it's just gorgeous!! This skirt is a silk-chiffon mix so is very delicate and pretty.
I'd team this skirt with a basic vest top or even a classic white or black blouse tucked in to it.

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)

Only 5 days to go..............................

On the countdown to my shopping trip to London next week!
I cannot wait to soak up the christmas atmosphere down there and do some shopping.

Two of the main things I am looking for is these Current / Elliot Cargo jeans

And this classic Moschino belt
I know i'll find lots of cute things in the flagship Topshop store on Oxford Circus and can't wait to check out the Preen boutique in Notting Hill too! My mate Gillian and I will leave our heels at home as with a full shopping day planned it's comfy boots all the way for us!

Accessorizing with the Aviator trend

I 've had this aviator hat for a few years now and I love it. I got it at a trade show in Glasgow so was lucky enough to get it for £20!. People always comment on this hat when I wear it and my friends always want to borrow it as it really is super stylish and warm.

I'd love to get a vintage aviator jacket one day! I promise I will draw the line at this and not got the full hog and get the goggles too!!

This will keep my head nice and cosy whilst shopping in London next week  :-)

Beaded Collars

Last season was big on the chunky necklace, now it's the beaded collars that's hitting the stores.
I got this amazing vintage beaded collar a few years ago in America. I just love this as it really is something special and one of a kind.

If you can't find a vintage collar then Topshop currently have this cute beaded collar just in:-

Best dressed of the decade

I've just heard that Kate Moss was named as the best dressed woman of the decade by Vogue US.  I do like alot of what Kate wears as she always looks chic and cool. I especially loved when she wore the futuristic styled Balmain structured shoulder dress. It was from this point that the high street jumped on the this and we were graced with some amazing dresses, jumpers and blazers all with the on trend structured shoulders.

Here's some of my fave Kate Moss looks:-

Balmain dress

Casual chic

Embellished dress ~ love this hairstyle too!

Another of the best dressed was Blake Lively. I do love Blake's looks, especially when she plays Serena on Gossip Girl...............oh to have Serena's wardrobe!!!

Love the blazer

working the tribal trend

New Year clear-out

This New Year I am planning on holding a fashion sale / cocktail party for me and my friends. I have always been a bit of a shop-a-holic and as most of us do, have lots and lots of clothes, shoes, bags... you name it, that I have never worn! I figured it would be fun to invite the girls over, have some cocktails and have a fashion sale for all my unwanted things. It should be great fun and if I get to have a good New Year clear out and make some pennies for saving up for my wedding that will be great  :-)

Go Cargo

I really want a pair of these cargo jeans by Current Elliott. I am really into my green colours these days especially khaki shades and think these are a nice change from the blue wash jeans. I would wear these jeans with a basic white or black vest top, either a blazer or leather jacket on top and with a pair of heels or in the summer for going casual a pair of comfy sandals or flipflops!

 Current Elliott cargo jeans look good on Kim Kardashian
