Staples












Top, Topshop 
Leather Skirt, h&m
Sandals, Forever 21
Necklace, h&m
Clutch, Zara


Just a little fact of the day about myself... I'm not one for being sensible with shopping, For example, buying things I don't really need/and or lacking versatility. I usually just grab things that catch my eye. I often get drawn in by patterns and bright colours, so last week i decided I needed to turn myself into a savvy shopper and buy some items that can be mix and matched.

Now this does not have to be boring! Its all about putting the right accessories and turning it into something completely unique. The iconic example for this post has to be the one and only Kate Moss. She really does nail understated style.. Her Kate Moss for Topshop collection really reflected her style well. There were lots of statement pieces like feather boleros, embellished dresses and trophy jackets, mixed with staples such as black skinnies, loose t shirts and vests. All the key ingredients for the perfect day to day wardrobe. ( and of course partying weekends )






So with a little inspiration from Moss and a trip to westfields, I treated myself to a few staple pieces I knew would have a place in my wardrobe for a long time.
I have never really gone for stripes, but i really liked the fit of this cropped style and of course the comfy bagginess.

and yes. my shiny clutch is back yet again!!! that's what you call recycling fashion eh?

Summertime Sadness



















Now that Summer has come to an end we are drawing close to October (boo), it gives me the perfect excuse to pull out the Fur Gilet. I must say, although I will miss the sun, I do love winter clothing. Fur is one of my favorite things to wear. Its cosy, warm and great to just throw on over to pop out. Now this one with no sleeves is perfect for slowy edging into the trend, to avoid looking OTT when it is still fairly mild out. You know... those kind of cardigan day temperatures?
Fur can make you look and FEEL very bulky, so its best to avoid wearing a huge woolly jumper underneath!. Especially after Christmas time... do not want to end up looking like you have gained more pounds then you already have! Ha. So here I teamed it with a loose tea dress in a light and airy fabric.

I cannot stop wearing these cut out boots at the moment. They go with just about everything in my wardrobe, and look amazing with cute ankle socks! Fishnet ones look very cool too. They are very chunky indeed and take a while to get used to especially when you are petite like myself! but never the less I still adore them! My dear old mother on the other hand is not so keen, her first reaction was "hooker boots" Thanks mum!
But anything Grunge/90s is a great purchase in my opinion.

This holographic clutch has been worn to death over the past few months. I'm sure people are getting sick of seeing me with it! but I truly have got my moneys worth. Its so versatile, easy to hold, and very roomy for all my bits and bobs on nights out. I love how it makes a statement and looks great with anything from an LBD to jeans and a T-Shirt. It even got mistaken as an Ipad case the other night.

Dusty Pink

Out of all the trends for Autumn/Winter 13, my ABSOLUTE favorite has to be the gorgeous shade of dusty pink. A little bit 60s, a little bit barbie - its just great. This marshmallow shade looks amazing when combined with camel and pale grey. It also suits any skin colour, so its versatility earns some brownie points too!
I love how some designers showcased the pink on over sized cocoon coats and masculine tailoring. Creating the perfect combo, to cleverly avoid becoming too girly. Celine, Topshop Unique, Rochas all gave us a taste of this pretty shade. I will definitely be purchasing some form of clothing in this colour, I already have my eye on a coat and skirt ! This trend will brighten up the winter shopping spree, a change from classic black and grey. I have also been admiring some high street online websites, which have been pairing the pink with leather leggings and chunky boots.

I have been searching online for a while and I must say the pink coats seem very difficult to get hold of! Marks and Spencer had the most PERFECT style/shade, but unfortunately it was limited edition and sold out within days .... :(
However, I managed to find a stunning pink coat from hobbs in a Cherry Pink and a Silver Topshop shift dress, which I will be swooning over until payday !!
