My Bargain of the week

At the moment I am seriously loving all things Oxblood. (Think burgundy) which incase you have not noticed is this season's hottest hue!!! The richness of the colour is sassy, moody and luxe and I think looks best when paired back with  navy, black, grey or even head  to toe (yes, really!)

I wanted a new pair of "run around" shoes... just because.. well do I need a reason?! and as my bank balance is crying to be fed (pay day- where are you?) I knew my new "run around" purchase had to be on the VERY purse friendly side; helloo primani. So without further ado please raise your glass for this week's "my bargain of the week:

Primark, £14.99

FYI- they are very comfy!

Elbows at the ready.....

I spy with my fashion eye  a gorgeous red, hitched up dress, a HOT pair of mirror-ball leggings, must-have-now invisible wedge ankle boots, knee high boots and shoes and lots of draping and deconstructed shapes. Yes, I am talking about the look book photos of the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection, which I  must admit had me drooling over my cereal this morning!

After months of no images being released today was a good day (well yesterday thanks to Grazia mag although I only opened my mag this morning), Images from this exciting collaboration were FINALLY revealed, yay!!

I have been eagerly waiting for photos since ummmm June, when I first blogged about this fab collab for Tha-One.com here.  FYI- up until 2 days ago I was a fashion writer for Tha-one.com but now I can reveal that I am now Online Fashion Editor, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pics of my fave pieces are below, what are your favourites?

My Bargain of the week

This weeks Bargain of the week is a little Bling Bling. When I came across this necklace I found my self ooohing and aahhing and when I saw the price tag I yelled a very loud "WHAT?"  I then headed straight to the cash desk (skipping).


As a lover of  breath taking bling jewellery this necklace stood out to to me due its bling factor and the price tag (obvs).  On the same day I also bought a new "coffee table" book on Vintage fashion (from a random book shop).

I do love to wear a bit of bling, any form of bling-ness can edge up any simple outfit a la the super cool Rihanna.

I wore this bling beauty last week with a long-line logo tee, leather leggings and of course a lash of red lippy. I annoyingly didn't take a pic. I really must do so more style pics of moi so that's going to be a new little challenge. The question now is... who can I ask to take my picture??  hmm watch this space!

What do you think of this weeks "my bargain of the week"?

BAD ASS Booties

After a long day working, applying for jobs and the rest I was feeling a bit grrrr until I came across these UH-MAZING, boots that I really MUST have!!!!!!!!!!!

I am really feeling all things gold and metallic at the moment. I do have a gold vintage pair of boots but they are more of a "run around" boot, so I really do want a pair that I can rock in the evening. These BAD ASS boots have my name written ALL over them. I would wear these boots with leather leggings or burgundy velvet shorts.

I now just need to find the money so I can buy these boots as the last time I checked my bank balance I almost broke out in a sweat LOL!

The Pink Mothballs Launch Party

So last Saturday night I was kindly invited to the launch party of Pink mothballs, an exciting new app that allows girls to borrow and lend clothes with friends. I was first made aware of this app a few months ago when a friend had retweeted a tweet about the launch of this app. I can't remember the exact words but the reweet caught my eye as it mentioned something about that annoying feeling of never having anything to wear, which I SO can relate to.

I followed Pink mothballs immediately and discovered the founder behind it was a cool chick called Amanda; I went on her blog and was hooked by the concept of pink mothballs.

Like many chicas I have a ram jam wardrobe(s ) but I still ALWAYS find myself complaining to any one who will listen that I do not have anything to wear.

        My Outfit

My Outfit

I chose to wear the HOTTEST pair of baroque leggings from one of my FAVE vintage brands; The Pretty Junk, I swear, I have fallen in love with these leggings and I didn't not want to TAKE THEM OFF!!!

The rest of my outfit: Studded boots, Topshop: Rings Topshop: Bag: Oxfam, Shaggy fur jacket: Vintage, Head Chain: Celianna.com

The Launch party

The launch part took place in a nice bar in North London called Love and Liquor, the room was decorated in all things pink (right up my street), I'm talking pink balloons and pink lamp shades. On arrival guests were greeted by a lovely girl that handed out "win £200 to spend on some new garmz' card that was of course pink, a pink mothballs goody bag and a rather tasty pink cocktail.

Other treats on the night:

-Two tables full of sweets,
-Pink n mix old skool style,
- A topless guy (with a very fit body) who was rocking a "pink mothball" chain
- And my FAVOURITE  treat was the most epic cake I've ever seen.  A humongous cake that was in the form of a wardrobe.

"Ooh Hello"


Lovely Blogger Jo from The GladRags

 Amanda then gave a speech/presentation about the app, which included a humorous and engaging screening about how pink mothballs all came about. I have always admired people who have the balls to chase their  dream. Amanda is very inspiring and  Pink mothballs is such a great idea as it appeals to a wide range of age groups, more so now than ever due to dare I say it.... the  recession, we are all looking for ways to save the pennies without compromising our style obvs.

I thoroughly enjoyed the fun filled, pink event; I met lots of cool fellow bloggers and some of Amanda's friends who were super lovely. I walked away with two thoughts:

1-  How incredibly tasty the cake was
2- And wondering how long it took to make

Pink mothballs is so going to blow up, I hope Amanda is ready
