Currently Loving #2 ♥ Pastels


Burberry S/S 2014

I’ve always been a huge devotee if pastel colours, whether it’s wallpaper or a pair of shoes! I remember going into Debenhams when I was younger, and you know how they have their bridal & bridesmaids collections, well when I went in there they were ALL muted violets, blues and greens…absolutely divine!

Surprisingly, I’ve always kept my fair distance way from pastels, because according to my horoscope (superstations are my religion, like really) they make me look washed out. I have since learned the attitude of who cares, from that day “hypothetically speaking of course” I’ve allowed myself to indulge in all things pastel!

The catwalk photo is from the English Rose collection from Burberry Spring Summer 2014 (Can't wait till , if you were wondering! I love looking at catwalk photos and when I go to University (crosses fingers) I will be going to London’s Fashion Week, but until then I guess I’ll have to settle for Birmingham’s alternative! Any who, these are some of my pastel goodies that I currently love:

I Fancy Fanny Crowns

Let’s get our facts straight –Sequin dresses look trashy, sorry but no way would you catch me dead in one of those! However, when I was snooping the interwebs of Fanny Crowns I came across this beauty; The Original Sweetheart [true to its name]. There is just something about this dress that I find so captivating, it could be to do with the fact it’s 100% handmade, it just makes it that little bit more special. I don’t know handmade things just feel ‘wholesome’ and worth it –think I may have a problem?  

I will continue to wear boots and flatforms until I’m 6ft under, however I had to compromise with this dress because if your going for it, you might as well go for it right? So I chose to pair it with these pretty little booties from Shellys London. The white of the boots will create a nice contrast with the royal blue colour. I cannot leave the house without wearing my Steven Madden Faux Fur coat, so I doubt you’d be surprised by the fact I paired it with a white vision of the coat from Miss Selfridges.   

If you live in a, lets say “cooler” place like I do, and you’re worried about your legs getting to cold and dropping off, you could always piece this number with a pair of Primark cost tights and bobs your uncle.
  

This dress excites me, I could type away for ages about it and restyle and style again –I should really get a hobby, shouldn’t I? Wrapping things up now though; if you would like it for yourself you can pick it up here or you can have a nose around their site to find the perfect dress for you –because trust me they will have it! Once you have found a dress, style it and you can enter this competition and you never know I could end up on your front door step…one day!

The Nails ♥ bloody Maria

Ring Thrifted //  Bracelet Vintage, eBay

Lately I haven’t had the luxury of getting the time to sit down and spend hours painting my nails, but I got them shaped the other day and I couldn’t bare going around with visible nail stubs.

I finally picked up a dotting tool, a few weeks back so I thought I’d try it out, looks awfully shabby…but I thought I share with you what my nails look like short.  

Recent Blog Discoveries

I absolutely love finding new blogs to add to my current craze list, and I love it even more when the blogs I find are new to the scene, I don’t know –there’s something refreshingly raw and familiar about a new ‘blogger’ just getting started. Anyway, before this into turns into a creep fest, today I’m going to be sharing with you new discoveries to my subscription list –both new and old bloggers!

The girl that rightfully holds the credits to this blog is called Vicky; from my point of view her blog is quite inspirational in the terms of fashion –I don’t know what is, but when I flick through to a new outfit post of hers I get about 50 ideas in my head. I truly and utterly love her blog!

Bemuze is a fashion based blog, ran by a lovely girl called Tara; when I say her style is immaculate –I do mean she looks amazing all the time! Her blog is yet another that inspires me in my own outfits and artwork! She hasn't actually posted in a while, but watch that space! On the plus side, it gives you a chance to get though all her old blog posts! 
These are my two current recent discoveries, as I said I absolutely lobe both their styles and blogs! So, if we have pretty similar style, you might you love these cherubs are much as I do…
Hope you are having a beautiful day!

A Girl Can Dream Whistlist #1


One  // Two // Three -On and on Bronze // Four // Five // Six // Seven (alt) // Eight - Blizzard, Jade Stone // Nine

Quite a jam packed wish list for today’s post, I’m pretty sure I haven’t done one before, so hopefully this goes to plan.

001. I seen these shoes whilst browsing Forever21 looking for a pair of white combat boots, which I found here, but was pleasantly surprised these popped up! They are absolutely beautiful.

002. I’m pretty sure I discovered this purse whilst I was stalking Amy Valentine, which is a common hobby of mine. It seems to be more readily available for people who live in the states, but the link I’ve got ships to the UK.

003. I know I’m so late on the bandwagon, but I didn’t really wear eye shadows to tough until about 4 months or so ago! These have brilliant reviews, seem handy and are a reasonable price I’d say.

004. When I went to the airport back in November (mentioned in this post) they had loads of mini perfume counters, and I got the chance to have a whiff of Marc Jacobs Daisy –It wasn’t the first time I’d heard of it, it’s been raved about loads, it just want enticing enough for me to go out an try some! Honestly though, it’s one of the best things I’ve even smelt, you really must give it a sniff.

005. Everyone knows I’m a sucker for Jeffery Campbell’s (Need Evidence), I don’t own a pair to my name, but god dam *forgive me, father* they are beautiful. I wasn’t really into the Coltrane when it first risen to YouTube/Blogger stardom as everyone had it and I thought it would go out of trend but, I actually can’t keep my eyes off of them.

006. She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up –Every time I heard or read coconut, that phase instinctively light blubs. I really like the smell of coconut, I think I mention it every time I do a fragrance review, despite the fact they hardly ever contain coconut.

007. I just need a standard black beanie, I only have silly colours…like Ombre pink, Neon Yellows and Dappy hats *Yes, I know*. This one pretty cute and its black! Win, win I’d say.

008. Models own have a fantastic range, of both colours and textures, of nail polishes! I really must try some one day, plus I need a top coat…so I may have to delve.

That’s all folks for today, I’m not sure about the format of this post, it’s to much like my Sunday Summary’s! Maybe the next one will have its own identity if I end up doing one. Let me know what you’d put on you’re whist list if you had one? And would you recommend any of the Models own Polishes?
