Feather Clutches

How cute are these little fur balls?! Pat on the back Miss S, you’ve done me proud! Don’t you think they are reminiscent of Little Liffner bags? At a fraction of the price though. Perfect! I’ve just ordered the black one online but I want them both. I’ve always been against buying the same thing in multiple colours. I doubt I’ll be able to resist these though… Dilemma!

Zara’s Look Book – December 2012

Could they have got it any more right? Im loving the monochrome theme that Zara have incorporated into this Decembers look-book. They have quite a few standout pieces, but I can really imagine myself wearing these ones below. Check out the shoes! How cute are they?!

We love… Joan Smalls

There is nothing more that I love than a girl who can pull off statement pants. Oh yes, she is Joan Smalls, a Puerto Rican model. Self described as having a bit of a bipolar personal style, Joan can rock pretty much anything. One day she is a vixen dressed in all black, the next she is a vision of elegance. Here are our favourite looks!

Maison Martin Margiela X H&M

I’m loving the collaborative work H&M have been doing with designers as of late. Here’s a little insight into their latest collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela. Pieces with personality. Hmm…!

Trend Alert – Oversize Me.

Most girls I know are pretty scared of sporting oversized items and I don’t exactly find this shocking. So I’m pretty sure that like me you’re feeling a little thankfully for the rise of the oversize this fall.

If I had to chose three words that best illustrated what ‘oversized fashion’ is all about, I’d chose big, bold and bossy. To help maintain that trendy look this fall, I really do suggest that this is the one trend you don’t ignore! For one, it’s really comfortable, looks fierce and, bonus,it’ll keep you warm.We’re not just talking about clothes here to; ‘oversize’ is taking over scarfs, jewellry and bags too.

Choosing the right items to pair your oversize garments will help accentuate your look. A word of advice; always think opposite. Oversize trousers & fitted top. Oversized top & either a pencil skirt or tailored trousers (ankle trousers too!). You get the idea. Remember, what you want to do is compliment the other section. Now go on, try something new today.
