The Comeback Post

23 Sep

Apologies all round are due as I haven’t blogged in a really long time. Technology is oh-so-fab when it works…

Anyway a major catch-up is needed! Whilst my laptop was in rehab I’ve missed London Fashion Week, a load of Miley Cyrus flavoured bullshit and the weird Kimye life-overs. BAD TIMES!  I’m back now, though, and ready to roll…

London Fashion Week Street Style [Via Cosmo]

Last Fashion Week I was all over it, loving the trends, the snaps, the blogs, the news…everything! The difference between then and now is the lack of interweb research and constant clicking on new links emerging as they were posted! SO I’ve skipped all the nitty gritty and gone straight to Cosmo for the Street Style LFW Guide. Let me tell you… I like what I see!

– Boyfriend Jeans: Forever searching for a Fashion Week-approved style that’s comfy and wage-friendly, I’m delighted to find boyfriend jeans back in the Autumn/Winter trends to keep!  I’ve found these three pairs for under £30! Which pair is your fave?

Zara Loose Fit Jeans £29.99 / Internacionale Midwash Jeans £22.49 / Punkyfish Ripped X-Boyfriend Jeans £25

– Perspex Bags: Ever filled your bag with such awesome crap that you wished everyone could see?! Well now you can coz it’s cool:

The Beckton Transparent Clutch by LYDC £22 / Large Klear Klutch £59.99 / Nasty Gal Eye Candy Satchel £31

clear clutches

– Cool Headphones: Who cares if general members of the public are staring at you with Hipster Envy?! You look awesome coz Cosmo told you so:

Beats Solo by Dr Dre £169.95/ ASOS Metallic Gold Headphones £18 / GOJI Tinchy Stryder Over-Ear Headphones £49.99

Headphones

I forgot how much blogging makes me lust after stuff I didn’t think I even needed, let alone want. It’s good to be back. Tomorrow I discuss Miley Cyrus…if you’re a fan you may not want to hear what I have to say!

Kourtney Kardashian: Fashion Profile

11 Jul

Kourtney Kardashian has recently been awarded ‘Fashion Icon’ status from the Fashion Bloggers of the Twittersphere and it’s clear to see why. Her style overhaul since having her babies, Mason Dash and Penelope Scotland, has a touch of boho mixed with tailored luxe.

One of my all-time favourite Kourtney looks is this summery ensemble:

Shopping around on Stylight I have managed to find an up-to-date version of this look! Check it out, I would DIE if I could shop this whole look:

kk 1

Hugo Boss Tunic

Odd Molly Shorts

Jeffrey Campbell High Heeled Sandals

Dolce & Gabbana Purse

Nina Ricci Glasses

Marc Jacobs Cuff

What a designer overload! But what a dream outfit! Stylight is my new obsession – it has everything you wish you had that you’ve seen on your fave celebs and then shows you where to get it! Knowing how much it all is may give you goosebumps at first but at least you know how much to save up! Plus, if you’re in no position to be having a gander at £800 purses then don’t fret – there are more promising brands on there too, such as AX Paris, TFNC and Vero Moda.

So, do what I just did…stare lovingly at the Fendi bag and Prada Glasses then shop at AX Paris! All shopping fixes are fixed!

Just look at that front row. The Grammy’s was of course full to the brim with red hot sexy talent but this mono-four take things to a level of their own. Monochrome is everything right now:

If I were to rock this mono-trend on a night out, whether it be for a date, dinner or partying I’d wear my favourite dress straight from my Mum’s closet! I have no idea where she got it or what for but it’s perfect! It’s almost -100 degrees outside in Britain this week with that Siberian breeze so I’ve teamed it with black ASOS Leggings and a saucy pair of stilettos I bought in a boutique in San Diego! Of course, I loved Khloé’s nails so much I got mine done the same! How would you style Monochromatic Sexiness???

Kinga Sektas – Handmade Jewellery Review

18 Feb

Handmade jewellery has always had the unique ability to turn your outfit into something less factory made and more for you.

This week I discovered the amazing service that comes with ordering from online boutique Kinga Sektas.

The variety on the website is enough to send you into jewellery overload but once you note the prices, the excitement kicks in. With pieces from as little as £3.50 I didn’t really know where to start; I just knew I needed some earrings.

Recently writing an article for Britain’s No1 Handmade Jewellery magazine about how Kinga Sektas uses only cruelty-free feathers in her materials got me extremely intrigued in such products. Opting for the Hot Pink & Yellow Flamingo Feather Earrings, I checked-out.

In the space of 24 hours of ordering I had received a welcome e-mail from the boutique, a confirmation and invoice, a thank you note and a very exciting Valentine’s Gift message. Not only did Kinga (owner and jewellery creator at Kinga Sektas Boutique) dispatch what I chose and paid for she also sent me the Alicia Sequin Earrings.

Noticing from my blogs what a huge fan of the Kardashian’s I am, she remembered a customer who came to her before and asked for a set of earrings to be made just like the ones Kim wore in the Kardashian Kristmas Kard last year!

kim

Less than 48 hours after my order was placed I was signing for my shiny package. The postman is getting used to my wonderful deliveries that come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and colours!

Opening the parcel, I realised what a perfect gift this would make for someone, too. Inside was a branded box with lush hot pink wrapping paper, finished with a hot pink ribbon and gold certified sticker. Not too shabby for Shelby!

So inside were my two pairs of earrings, of course. From the pictures of the Alicia earrings I thought they’d be quite heavy on the lobe but they actually only weigh 12g and I actually forgot I was wearing them after a while. My pet hate with long dangling earrings in the winter is that they get cold and then make you jump out of your skin when they touch your neck! That, you will happy to know, doesn’t happen with these as they are entirely made out of sequins. I wore them on Valentine’s Day with my hair down but I’d also wear them with my hair in a tight bun to make more of a statement on a night out.

These are available in silver, cream and pink as well as black so can pretty much be an option for any outfit and most occassions; the Swarovski element make them that bit more for special events.

The flamingo feather earrings are just as light, just as gentle but add much more drama to your outfit! If you’re looking for an ice-breaker piece, or a pair of earrings that get converation started, I would opt for these! The first thing that anyone mentions when I wear them are, “Nice earrings!” To which I gladly respond with something about geuine flamingo feathers, etc. You get the point.

I was worried when I bought them though. What would I wear them with? I know Tulisa, Andrea Gomez and Gwyneth Paltrow are a fan of pink feathers:

c

But I am neither rich nor famous so nobody cares if I’m inadvertently seeking attention through my earrings! So I wore a very black outfit with them and let them dance their own salsa, so to speak:

b

To sum up on the product and services avaialable at Kinga Sektas:

1) Quick, generous and pleasing dispatch service

2) Exceedingly good value for money

3) Very, very moreish products…

Top 5 Winter Trends For This Year’s Party Season

19 Dec

In two weeks, Christmas and New Years will be over and done with. In those two weeks, imagine how many parties, get togethers, dinners, lunches and soirees you’re going to need to attend!?

Judging by the shivering, happy ladies I serve every Saturday night at work (in a warm yet boring and very sober taxi office) this year everyone’s making more of an effort than just whacking on your average LBD.

So, what are the top trends for this year’s partay season?!

1) Party Shorts

party shorts

They’ve been celebrity favourites all year but sexy short shorts are back with a vengeance. If you, like me, are wondering how to tackle a Great British December evening in a pair of such grotesquely short shorts then have no fear! Whack on a pair (or three) of 100 denier tights and wear a plain blazer for extra warmth. Here are my top 3 party shorts available online or on the high street:

pty shorts

(LtoR)

Motel for TopShop Harlequin Shorts £39

River Island Pink Sequin Knicker Shorts £12 / £30

Forever 21 Purple High-Waisted Shorts £16.75

2) Brocade

There’s always a tricky signature pattern to every season and at the moment it’s Brocade. I find it one of the hardest patterns to make sexy as it is such a tailored style BUT once you get it right you look like a style genius, just like Kim & Kate:

Here are my top 3 Brocade picks:

Lipsy for ASOS Brocade Prom Dress £21

Marks & Spencer Brocade Print Jacket £44

Miss Real for New Look Gold Brocade Dress £27.99

3) Dainty Details

From lace to sequins, mesh to embellishments this season it’s all about touching up your outfit with something beautifully delicate. You can bling up your whole outfit, like Jennifer Connelly, or add a subtle touch up, like Nicole Richie:

Here are my 6 top picks for delicate detailing – 3 for over-the-top bling-ups and 3 for subtle hints of sparkle:

Little Mistress Navy Sequinned Dress £75

ASOS Embellished Wedges £60

Lipsy Embellished Leggings £22.50

embellished

ASOS Embellished Stone Collar £18

Matalan Embellished Clutch Bag £14

Patterned Lace Tights at My Tights £8

4) Coloured Kissers

From Khloe Kardashian and her sister Kendall Jenner stateside to our very own Azaelia Banks; purple lipstick is spending a lot of time in the spotlight and is a flattering shade for most skin tones:

Get the look:

Elf Cosmetic Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Bark £1.50

Avon Plump Pout Lipstick £7.50

Barry M Lip Paint #156 £4.50

Dior Addict Lipstick in Insoumise £24

L’Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Lip Tint £8.50

5) Morning-After Christmas Jumpers

Wine-induced headaches and copious amounts of nausea will feel 100% comfier if you’re grinning and bearing it all in a cute Christmas jumper favoured also by Fearne Cotton, Maria Fowler and Nicole Scherzinger:

See it as a hangover-cure investment! Here are my top 3:

Next Penguin Sweater £32

River Island Ski Print Jumper Dress £40

ASOS Christmas Jumper £26.50

So that’s the top 5 trends of Christmas/New Years 2012!
