Leopard Printed Statement

18 Jul

When it comes to coats and jackets I am extremely picky. In fact, in the last four years I have only bought three. I have wide shoulders, big hips and even bigger thighs ha! Anything that doesn’t nip me in at the waist makes me look a bigger than I am. Coats need fabric that is durable and waterproof(to a decent extent).

This trench is from Topshop….I call it my ‘summer coat’. Warm when necessary and cooler when I need insurance against British weather. It’s almost a mustard colour, which compliment my skin-tone pretty well….almost a ‘black’ nude ha! These shoes are the love of my LIFE! I lost one….(don’t ask how) but I’ve been re-united. Elegant and risky all at the same time. Boom…

Trench Coat: Topshop/ Black Pencil Dress: Asos/ Leopard Print Shoe’s: Nine West/ Bag: Asos

I owe a massive thank you to a good friend of mine who seems to get dragged into taking all my photo’s! We havn’t settled on a name for her enterprise, but when we do I’ll let you all know about her. Love you!


The Wedding Spotlight’s On…..Beautiful Bridesmaids Gifts Day Five

22 Jun

We’ve reached the end of my countdown for the bridesmaids gifts…boo-hoo! I’ve had a great time researching this. In my day job I often advice people about bridemaid’s gifts, so it was great for me to look at what’s widely available.I can’t help thinking that bridesmaids are very lucky girls ha!

I’ve saved one of the best for last. This gift is completely universal but is( as all the others before were), a GREAT photo prop. I also believe this is a pretty unique idea that will be rise in popularity!

Custom orders available from SilkAndMore at Etsy _ Sets of Six start from £137

The Spotlight’s on….Sika Designs

1 Jun

I love print, patterns and colour. But I have a special love for Dutch Wax prints, they remind me of all things West African. African inspired fashion is booming at the moment, everyone from Burberry to Kurt Geiger seems to want a piece of the action! When I see a designer taking fabrics I like and creating something beautiful I’ve got to celebrate….whilst getting my card out! Sika Designs is my latest discovery and I can’t wait to treat myself. The only problem is…..how in the world do I pick ONE item….let the battle commence…

Prices start from £49 and are available from their online shop here!
