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!

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!

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…

The Most Stylish Wedding Gown Ever?

17 Sep

Even though I had to google her name to find out who she is and what she actually does, Mary Charteris is stealing fashion headlines all over the world this week as she marries in what most are calling the most stylish wedding gown ever.

Created by Pam Hogg the gown was worn in front of equally-as-eccentric guests such as Lilly Allen, Florence Welch and Jaime Winstone as Lady Charteris wed rocker Robbie Furze.

Since I wasn’t invited to London Fashion Week (*cries*) and I am a telephonist earning not a lot (*cries more*) I have decided to see how close to this dare-to-bare trend I can get by shopping on the high street.

It turns out there is an option for all personalities, shapes and ages:

Real extroverts, go-getters and all-round non-carers can opt for this saucy Made By Niki bodice (£113 from Asos):

Back to reality and for the more normal of the population, American Apparel do this gorgeous little bodysuit for £40:

Crazy Camden-based shop Cyberdog are known for their outrageous attention-grabbing club clothes so I thought they’d have something appropriate! This ‘Melt Dress’ is £65

Cyberdog also do these awesome suspender socks (£35) which can be your Pam Hogg-inspired statement piece if you’re not wanting to go down the nude route:

Ann Summers’ Clubwear clothing collection have a few inspired little numbers.

This sheer body is £30 and is the average person’s version of Lady Charteris’ wedding bodice:

& this dress (£40, finished to perfection with gloves and stockings) is not only daring but also brings the futuristic edge back into the trend:

Last but not least we have a sheer shirt which you can wear with or without a bra (depending on how dedicated to ol’ Pammy you are)!! This one is £18 from Pop Couture:

Excuse me now, I have some shopping to do! What is your favourite piece?
