gURL.comI took the "Retro Runway" quiz on
My fashion is inspired by...
the '80s

Are you always scanning countless magazines for the latest fashions? Do you like to have the trendiest clothing out there? If so, your style would fit in with the era of big hair--we're talking about the '80.Read more...

Which fashion era do you belong in?

A bit of 80's glamour...

80's glamour.. it makes me nostalgic.. but that doesn't make sense, i wasn't even alive then! having missed the 80's doesn't mean i can't love the fashion though, and while browsing online I found some very sexy, 80s-esque peep toes. Take a look;

The Heat Polka Dot peep toes are at £39.00 from Dolly Dagger.

Pair them with a little black dress and this structured, medium croco tote in a delicious candy-apple red from Nine West for $89.00 and you're ready to go!

Ok, I know I haven't posted in a while and sorry about that... but i have picked up a few things in the time being, however the pics can not be posted as the site won't let me : hopefully this will be fixed soon and I shall post the pics then, but this is what I got;

  • The Lovely belts - from Primark at £1.50 (the red one) and £3.00 (the distressed blue one) these provide a fabulous way to define that waist and create the hourglass shape you always wanted.. and without breaking the bank too - an added bonus!
  • The orange top picked up in the mid season sales in Zara at £8.00 - this vibrant hue goes well with this season's grey and what a great investment as a lot of orange has been seen on the runway for spring 08.. but of course, with a lovely, colourful, basic like this, you can't go wrong.. it will always be in fashion when paired with the right accessories.
  • Shimmer in style with this simple silver tank top with a black print on it - at just £10.00 from New look, it can be either dressed up or down for the occasion and give you that little bit of glamour in your life.
  • The pink dress has a rather rich feel to it with its subdued, muted colour and soft material with the pocket providing that extra bit of style. Worn under a black belted pea coat and with leggings (for some more sparkle, you could add metallic leggings such as the ones i posted about before) it conveys a simple, yet chic, sophisticated style.

What do you think of my buys? Have you picked up anything nice recently that you want to share? send in pics and they'll be posted.

And also, I'd like to thank people who left me a comment on my last post, I'm glad you like the blog and appreciate your comments :D

Define your waist...

I just found this lovely, brown woven square buckle belt which would nicely compliment a simple black babydoll top or dress and black heels and delicately cinch your waist creating a slimmer waistline. Such a chic effect created so effortlessly with just this one accesorie which is for £8.00 on Asos.. go ahead and buy yours now.. while i try to get some money of my sister to get mine..

..dream come true...

Remember a few posts ago when I was literally drooling over some blue shoes I'd conjured up in my mind? Well I found them online in Tammy Girls for £16.00. So today when I went there to try them on.. can you imagine my disappointment when they didn't fit well? I was sooo upset! So off I went looking for something nice to buy that would cheer me up.. a lil... when I came across the perfect blue pair in 4 Feet..

I couldn't believe my luck when they fit well and they were the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn as well! Surely there would be a catch? The price perhaps... but no! Looks like it was my lucky day today.. for they were on sale for £12.00!
The first picture shows the Tammy ones and the second shows the 4 Feet ones.. I love the little diamonte detail and ruched effect too... so cute :D

Shopping bags...

It seems as though I've got a thing for bold print dresses.. seeing as i've been eyeing quite a few lately as seen in my last post and as will be seen in this one...

Its amazing how I manage to browse in any situation and in any way - like for instance i saw a girl with a Monsoon bag and I fell in love with the dress and necklace pictured on the bag of all things... I mean really.. who does that?

Nevertheless.. here is the dress I like from Monsoon at £75.00 and the enamel butterfly necklace at a more affordable £14.00.
However, both the dress and the necklace seemed much less appealing to me form the pictures on the Monsoon website... perhaps the dress is nicely set off withthe black leggings and of course the beautiful model and the necklace looks so nice as its coupled with a slightly contracting pale green dress... What do you guys think?

One dress.. so many ways..

I love H&M's autumn collection, but most of all I love this dress (its for £24.99):

Its a sophisticated classic that can be paired with different items and worn in different ways. For example:
  • although there is a skirt int eh second picture (from H&M at £14.99), the dress can be worn with a black babydoll top to give it an entirely new look; as a skirt. And the extra layers will be keeping you warm too.
  • And how cute does the dress look beneath the lovely yellow coat (a steal at £19.99 from H&M!) with matching heels?
  • Add a touch of colour with a pair of yellow socks and make a statement with the wedges.
  • Yellow not your colour? How about wearing the dress under this grey cardigan at £34.99?
  • Look chic and stylish with the luxurious white coat (at £69.99).
  • Or failing that, you could just keep the look simple by wearing the dress as shown int he first picture with some nice cream heels and a long sleeved grey top underneath.

As you can see, the possibilities are endless and this is a dress that can see you through the whole season with the aid of a few different accessories. As you can probably tell, I'm absolutely in love with the dress.. gimme gimme gimme! And i just have to get it soon... *goes into day dream mode*
