The Sequin Dress

Dress - c/o Pretty Little Thing (here)
Coat - Zara
Shoes - c/o Boohoo (here)

And so it returns, the essentially 'vintage' Zara fur coat that i've had since my extremely early teens. Despite the totally ripped up lining, there's something about it that I just can't part with, and I just love the way it finishes off a winter party outfit. 
Whilst growing Pretty Little Thing's website, I noticed they had some serious sparkle going on this season, and I couldn't resist the 60's fit of this dress. There's something so Edie Sedgwick about it - or maybe that's just me, but I love it even still! For me, fur and sequins are the ultimate NYE look - it's the best of both worlds, cosiness and glamour!

The Sequin Cami part 2

Cami - c/o Pretty Little Thing (here)
Roll neck - c/o Primark
Jeans - c/o Urban Outfitters (here)
Shoes - River Island (here)

I've never been much of a layering person, but this sequin cami from my previous post was the perfect excuse for a time to start and this cute little roll neck from Primark is so perfect for the job. 
I do love getting dressed up, but when it's cold outside it's so easy to prefer not to leave the house and freeze in the name of fashion, which is where a bit of casual and sparkly layering is our saviour - the best of both worlds!

The Sequin Cami part 1

Sequin cami - c/o Pretty Little Thing (here)
Culottes - Boohoo
Bag - Reiss (here)
Shoes - Heelberry (here)

Every year until now i've steered well clear of sequins, but this year I found myself craving them in my December wardrobe and this sequin cami is one of the nicest things I currently own. As soon as I put it on I was like 'ok, i'm gonna wear this on christmas eve and boxing day and new years eve and all events that follow...' Turns out i'm a sucker for some sparkles after all! 
But, me being me (not the girliest of girls) pairing with culottes was a more suitable option to 'tone it down' a tad... And fluffy shoes, 'cause you know who can resist fluffy shoes....

The Pretty Little Thing xmas jumper edit

Jumper 1 (here)
Jumper 2 (here)
Jumper 3 (here)

Yep, debuting my cat whispering skills on my blog.... I'm clearly a woman of many talents.... (If you have no sense of humour that was a joke JSYK haha)
Christmas is like a week and a half away and i'm officially the most festive person in London now i've been kitted out by Pretty Little Thing with these super cosy christmas jumpers! It's the one time of year I will sacrifice my usually stylish ways and opt for comfort instead, because after all, Christmas is too short to take too seriously!

Flossy's Christmas Shoot

You're probably aware by now if you read regularly that 2 of my closest friends are Annabel of Adorned in Monochrome and Jess of Copper Garden. We're that perfect trio of blonde, brunette and red head.... Kind of like the Powerpuff Girls of blogging....
Anyway, since we all work together often and have each other's backs with our blogs and stuff, the guys from Flossy's thought it would be cool to get us 3 together for a little festive themed shoot which we headed over the Southbank christmas market for - and we had so much fun. 
We drank mulled wine while we trekked through the market (I ate a lot of fudge....) before we discovered a merry-go-round, which being the inner-children that we are, we couldn't resist but to jump onto... for photos sake of course.... 
We always have such a great time with Sophie, so of course working with Flossy's is always a pleasure - not to mention how ridiculously comfy the plimsolls are... I now have 3 pairs and counting - you can guarantee a pair to always be in my bag or on my feet!

Primark S/S15 Preview

Last week, press day season continued with the wonderful Primark press day and as always with Primark lately (particularly this year) I was definitely pleasantly surprised. My view has definitely changed on the brand in the last 2 years and quality and styles available has improved so much from what I remember them to be. Their S/S15 range has so much to offer, from brights, to pastels, to optic whites to fancy footwear - they definitely have us covered for the new season, particularly with festival style, but what i'm looking forward to the most? 100% the shoes!
