QUEEN of Swag

Those that know me will know that I have mad love for Solange Knowles!! Her style is fun, fearless, quirky and always seems so effortless. She is my ultimate style icon!!

 I love what she wore to the Cavalli show in Milan. She ROCKED a yummy Roberto Cavalli Resort blazer (*dribble*) and  a pair of "WOW" Christian Louboutin sandals on the front row, as she next to the oh so cool Azealia Banks who looked quite funky in her green leopard print dress and mesh creepers.

Solange you are the QUEEN of swag!!!!

Read all about it

2 weeks ago I was interviewed by a journalist about the new trend in hiring gorgeous designer frocks at affordable prices.

The dress that I was referencing was a stunning colour block  maxi dress by Tibi. As soon as I saw this dress I was dribbling (literally), I mean just look at the back of the dress... LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This dress is from an am-azing designer hire company called Wish Want Wear

My bargain of the week is back

So after a 3 week break.... 'My bargain of the week' is back! As well as a being a massive lover of shoes, rings, faux fur and sequins I do love a nice, scrumptious hat!! 

Now I will confess that I have not always been a lover of hats. I used to admire them from a far and then walk on by but back in February when I joined a company where one of the brands were gorgeous hats, I fell in love and I am now a proud hat wearing lover. I own a few and I had been after a new hat so imagine my delight when I saw this beauty.  

I picked up this hat from H&M for a purse string friendly price of £12.99 I love how it just instantly lifts my outfit. The colour is gorge and a popular colour this season. I like that on the trim around the rim of the hat there are 2 small gold leaves.

My new hat had its first outing last Friday; it came out for dinner with me, two of my favourite girls and one of their boyfriends (who kindly took my pictures, thanks Will)

What do you think?

I need a pick me up

Can you feel that chill in the air? Autumn is definitely here, grr!!  and I for one am not happy about it. I mean to be fair I do love A/W fashion as I can rock all my faux fur jackets, coats etc but it's just the dark nights and the drop in temperature that is tough but hey ho, no point in complaining lol!

I am in need of a pick me today, pay day is still far away, I cant seem to completely shake off this cold so I am walking around with tissues (how glam!) SO after work today I am taking myself (and my pack of tissues) to Topshop to buy some rings.

Now those that know me will know that I LOVE me some rings!! the wackier the better, the larger the better. I like to wear 4 or 5 at a time. For me leaving the house with out wearing rings is like being naked and I really do feel that rings can add a edge or that fun factor to any outfit. I own so many rings BUT I haven't bought a new one in a while. I have had a peak on the toppers website and I know exactly what I am after. Below are some (and I mean some) of the rings that I have my eyes on.

You might notice that a few of the selected rings below have a theme in common.... crosses. Yes, i'm a tad obsessed with crosses at the moment.

I will let you know which rings I ended up buying later.

On the mend and back in action

Firstly sorry for the lack of blogging,  last week I caught a silly cold, grrrrr and I spent pretty much of last week going to work all drugged up on Day and Night nurse and then straight home and straight to bed. Friday I was feeling 80% better and then 'Bam' the next day I was poisoned by (god knows what I ate) so I was vomiting non stop. BUT I feel better today, I am on the mend and I am back in action. I have lots to blog about this week so keep both your eyes peeled.

I hope you have been enjoying LFW! Some of my fave shows so far have to be Matthew Williamson, Peter Pilotto, Mary Katrantzou and Topshop Unique. Oh and Ive just finished watching the Burberry show LIVE. Ha- no I didn't get a ticket (but hoping one day I will ), Grazia live and were streaming the show live on the Grazia website. It was such a fab show. Think: Cropped Trenches, cocoon jackets and short shorts (right up my street) and I just loved the finale; a spectrum of metallic trench coats.... BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

What have been your favourite shows so far?

Victoria Beckham at her best

I just love fashion week! Its like Christmas in the fashion world due to the excitement and anxiety of all the gorgeousness that we can expect to see. So far one of the shows that I am just loving is Victoria Beckham. This season I feel she has just nailed it, I love the simple but slick cuts and sharp 'new' tailoring.

What a divine collection!

Vogue Fashion's night out

Tomorrow is Vogue fashion's night out with various stores all around the UK holding exciting events in store and offering various discounts. As there is soooooooo much choice and I am not sure where to start lol! I would love to go to all the events but as this is not at all possible I have limited my choice down to Topshop, as I really want to see Delilah perform live in the Topshop window ( yes really). Miss Selfridge: as they are holding are ‘Love to Customise sequins, studs ’ shopping night and boy do I love to customise. I  also do love a bit of sparkle and studs so this is definitely right up my street. I do also want to make a dash to Aqua as their current collection is beautiful, especially the ‘City of Gold’ range. They are offering 30% off tomorrow which is ummm amaze.

Where will you be heading? x

"One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don't invest any energy in them, because I know who I am." - Michelle Obama"

 I have just come across this quote from the amazing woman; Michelle Obama. I totally agree with this quote as I will admit that this is something that I have struggled with, not so much now though but more as I was growing up. Of course, there are some days when I find myself reverting back to my old ways but I can honestly say that overall  especially over the past 12 months I do not waste much of my time focusing on any negative energy, comments etc as not only does it give me spots Lol but also because I do believe that positivity always wins! I truly like who I am as person (not in an arrogant way) though. What I mean is that I accept that I may not be everyone's cup of tea and some people might find my style and personality too 'quirky' but for every person that doesn't ‘get me’ there are many others that do. See how I see it as some people prefer Jimmy Choos, others may prefer Louboutins and thats all good.  One thing I can say is that whatever I do I always like to keep it real by staying true to myself and to me that is just fab-u-lous!!!!

 Finally to quote DVF The most important relationship in your life is the relationship you have with yourself. Because no matter what happens, you will always be with yourself.”  Diane Von Furstenberg

As the saying goes.....

A girl can dream

As we wave goodbye to summer (not that we had much of  a summer this year, grrrr) and welcome Autumn I am thinking about all the pieces that I must have in my Autumn wardrobe. Top of the list: leather trousers. I have just seen these red leather bad boy skinny trousers on Net-a-Porter. With a hefty price tag of..... £3,325 I will have to search for a cheaper but just as 'WOW' alternative. In the mean time I will continue to dribble.
