Finally it's Friday, yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Now as you may have noticed I've been a bit temperamental with blogging, so I've decided to change my ways, i.e drafted posts from the weekend. Anyhow, the lovely Luxury Clutches, sent me this gorgeous satin diamante weave clutch bag. The quality is absolutely beautiful- I feel a bit like a 1950's movie star walking around with it *slyly flicks hair, like a 1950's movie star*. Crystals have been a key trend over the last few months and still are. So the clutch pairs perfectly with heaps of accessories, and also garments. Think of metallics, whilst the shape complements AW11 AND SS12 oriental prints. So where better to take the photos than a graveyard? Now it may sound like a bit of weird juxtaposition, well to be honest that was the whole point! Shimmering crystals and satin, against rough and distressed gravestones. Fabulous. There are so many styling options with just anything, including the clutch. So why not go the full mile, and check out their other clutches, such as a completely diamante covered clutch? Think of all the kitsch looks you could create, in class!
Jacket- Miss Selfridge, Bouse-Charity shop, harems- Motel ( haven't warn them in ages! Reminded me of the oriental print trend), Scarf- 'hand-me-down', bag-belongs to my mum!, socks-Topshop, shoes-The Nature Shop
I have been wrapped up in bed the last few days- and if being ill isn't enough torture, I've had to revise for a maths exam at the same time. School at the moment is chaotic, and so has effected the way I currently dress. Now I may begin to sound a bit pretentious, but sadly it's the truth. I've taken on a more hippy dippy and relaxed vibes when styling outfits, to contrast against the busy school life. Though luckily for me The Nature Shop, sent me these cute shoes---totally work with the relaxed vibes. Now, I couldn't help but think of Comme Des Garcons and Yohji Yamamoto when they arrived. Not only that, Miu Miu's sparkled shoe collection, contains similar styled trainers. So trainers at the moment are becoming quite the trend. Pop-culture too favours trainers at the moment, with high school vibes and trends referenced through many blogs and magazines. And as if you couldn't get any more trendier, the shoes are eco friendly! All the products are nature inspired , and 10% profit goes to charitable donations to the World Wildlife Fund, donations to kids charities (Heart Children and Canteen) and carbon credits purchased to achieve their carboNZero certification. There are a range of products to choose from:clothing, loafers, boots to sandals etc etc. Plus the brands to choose from are fabulous, they sell a large range of women's winter boots, including brands such as Keen, Teva, Merrell, Chaco, and Timberland. I'd say winter boots are a definite must have in Novemeber chills. So just to tempt you a bit more into buying a pair of shoes, there is FREE next day shipping! So what you waiting for? Simply take a look, you'd be untrendy not to.
Raw, kitsch and full of bling- Versace for H&M. Sounds perfect. I have been eagerly anticipating the collection for God knows how long, and finally we're in the month of the launch date (!!!!!). The collections consists of greek, oriental and harajuku inspired cuts, styles and prints. Whilst it still remains sophisticated yet quirky. Whether your looking for a black dress or the full Donatella shebang, it's there. Not only that, it's a fabulous investment, oriental prints were all over the SS12 catwalk (e.g Stall McCartney). However, I must admit the prices are still a bit steap-£99.99 for a dress. Anyhow, Starting to sound a bit too much like a sales person here, and currently falling asleep whilst typing. I've even managed to spill BLACK paint over my final art piece. Literally, I cannot stress how busy I have been with school..work,work, work! (Sorry for the badly written post, in a a bit of a stressy and exhausted state). So for now have a great week! Izzy xo
