SHOP STYLE | MUST HAVE – ASOS OBI BELT DRESS

Coquette_3903

Sometimes a dress comes along and you find yourself wondering where it’s been all your life. This obi belt dress from ASOS is one such dress. Although it pains me to share the secret, I think you all deserve it…

Sleeves, just below the knee, as little or as much cleavage as you fancy, classic black, printed or show-stopping geranium (they call it red), self-wrapping/tying (so you can let it out a bit after one too many cinnamon rolls), smart enough for a wedding, casual enough for Sunday lunch at the pub… need I go on? It’s a true wardrobe staple and if you don’t buy one in every colour I shall think you a simpleton.

SHOP STYLE | JOIE DAY DREAMING LOAFERS

Joie Day dreaming loafersIf these almond-toe loafers from Joie aren’t autumn perfection, then I don’t know what is. Throw them on with skinny jeans and a fine cashmere knit or crisp white shirt and you’re good to go. They have just a little something of the Sloane Ranger about them, but in my eyes that makes them all the more covetable. We all want to channel our inner Duchess now and then (we just don’t always admit it!)

NOTES ON STYLE // FLOWERS IN HER HAIR

Wether channeling her inner Lana de Ray, throwing on a cheesecloth dress and dancing barefoot in a meadow, or walking down the aisle towards her beloved, there’s something so enchanting about a girl with flowers in her hair…

So how about paying an homage to spring? You never know, it might help coax it along!

SHOP STYLE | GETTING INTIMATE

OK, confession time. I’m not proud to admit this, but in the interests of full disclosure, I’m gonna lay all my lacy cards on the table – I once ‘darned’ a bra. It wasn’t an expensive bra (M&S of course), it wasn’t particularly beautiful (a plain, black lace) and it possessed no magical qualities (no ‘invisibility cloak’ style lingerie in this house). So why did I take to it with my needle and thread like it was the last bra in the world? Because I LOVED it. I loved how comfortable it was, I loved the shape it gave me, I loved how it was smooth enough to go undetected, but lacy enough to be pretty, and, most tellingly, I loved how it made me feel. I just couldn’t let it go.

Lingerie is pretty powerful suff people, in fact some of it is so powerful it should only be used by trained professionals. It can reduce grown men to gibbering wrecks, make a sex-kitten from the mousiest of subjects, and turn heads with the way it makes you walk…

SHOP STYLE | STATEMENT NECKLACES

It may have been around for a while, but this is one trend that shows no sign of going anywhere soon. Much to my delight!! Statement necklaces are an easy win, you can wear them with pretty much ANYTHING, they can turn the mundane into the marvellous!! And best of all, there are some pretty fantastic ones to be had for less than you might think…

SHOP STYLE // BUY NOW, WEAR FALL 2013

First things first, I’m not saying you should buy these beauties and then let them languish at the back of your wardrobe for 6 months (this isn’t a blog for crazy people). What I AM saying, is that you can buy these pieces now, and get a head start on the trends that have been popping up all over the catwalks this last few weeks…

Camouflage is one of many nineties trends that’s making a come back later this year, and I for one can’t wait, I’m such a nineties kid! I’ll be snapping up a pari of  the Camo Kitten heels from Zara, to wear with my skinnies and parka.
