We made it! We survived the most depressing month of the year. I might not have done too well on the old resolutions (does one bath cut short by a screaming baby count as self-care?) but there’s still 11 months … Continue reading
It’s been the first full week (ok, I’m part-time but still) back at work since Christmas and I’ve been bleddy knackered. The commute means I’m ready for bed come 8pm on a Wednesday so I don’t really get much done … Continue reading
Holy shitballs, have you seen the new Kate Spade dinosaur bags?! My fave is the T-Rex (also available as an iPhone case – has anyone started the campaign for Android cases yet?). I’ve long been a fan (but sadly not … Continue reading
When you’re going out in a little black dress or skinnies and a nice top, and you want a little something-something to jazz up your outfit a bit, look no further than this gorgeous clutch bag from Accessorize. It’s £49.00 … Continue reading
Yeah, I know I posted one about six weeks ago but my gosh New Look are killing it with their summer stock! And it’s not just about the long baggy vest tops and midi skirts – there are hellah cute … Continue reading
Just when you think Kate Spade can’t do any better she creates the most amazing winter accessory. This polar bear clutch is jaw-droppingly incredible thing of beauty. Unfortunately it’s a whopping £358.00.
I love a quirky handbag (Kate Spade is the queen of this) but I’ve found something a bit more bank balance friendly. Plus it’s proper film geek-esque. Check out this popcorn bag from eBay – it’s only £14.24!
As a mum, my go-to bag is the changing bag. I take it everywhere because I’m never without the baby. Except on the odd afternoon when my mum babysits and we head out for lunch and to the cinema on … Continue reading
Ah, Kate Spade! I love you and your quirky bags. If you have a healthier bank balance than me, you might wanna get your hands on this incredible £330 bag. Not that you would be able to fit much in … Continue reading
I was a very happy girl the other day to receive the rather fabulous offer of reviewing a selection of party wear from JD Williams – and I got to pick the pieces myself! After a couple of minutes browsing the website, which, to be honest, I hadn’t paid much attention to before, I created a pretty long shortlist of items before whittling it down to these three items: a Joe Browns dress (I do love me some Joe Browns!) teamed with a gold bag and stud detail tights (actually a pack of two) for a bit of sparkle.
Now, if you’re a regular reader of the blog, you’ll know I’m not one for ‘outfit of the day’ posts – I’d rather be behind the camera than in front of it. So I dragged the boyfriend down to the beach for a mini photoshoot – you can’t go wrong with a beautiful Cornish backdrop to complement the rather lovely clothes!
I have to be honest about a couple of things that are hiding in the photos, however… The zip is one of those fiddly ones which will only do up when it’s not on you – I promise it’s the right size (there was plenty of room) but there was a bit of a gaping hole hiding under the cardigan. If I had bought this dress myself I would have asked for an exchange as I don’t have the patience for those things! Also, the tights are a size 12-16 but felt like they were made for someone a foot shorter. I’m a size 12-14 but those things were a bugger to actually get up on my waist and once they got there they just kept falling down – it’s a good thing the dress is a great length! After the shoot I ditched the tights and walked around St Ives bare legged for the rest of the afternoon.
The fit of the dress itself is perfection. I love skater dresses and it’s the perfect length to show a bit of leg without too much over the knee. And the tights are the perfect thickness for wandering the streets in between cocktails in the evening.
Thanks, JD Williams! I’ll definitely be checking you out next time my fingers start itching for some online shopping. Oh, it’s Pay Day tomorrow!
