One from the Vault…

Fish and Chips, the new black

So continuing my fave fashion moments I have just unearthed this beauty. Some may look at it and think faux pas but I can’t beat a bit of tartan (I was born in Scotland cha’know). This was taken on a voyage to Blackpool one weekend with the boyf in ’06 (crikey, that was a hella long time ago!) . I have an addiction to anything with a skull print – one day I WILL afford an Alexander McQueen skull scarf, but until then this old NewLook scarf will be my saviour….now where did I last see it? :/

Leopard print and Aviator chic

Had one of those “why don’t I ever have anything to wear” moments the other day so hit up The Trafford Centre and got some new threads.

NewLook is awesome at the moment, I bought leopard print harems for £22.00 – absolute bargain! Naturally, I had to debut them on a night on the town.

 

I teamed the pants with my £12 Primark lace-up heels, Asos bangles and a trusty basic black tee from Topshop – Wardrobe Essential 101 – and the necklace is actually a Bando from Accessorize.

Also, as it is starting to get a wee chilly out, I simply had to work my sold out H&M Aviator jacket.

Hope you like the look! New looks coming soon and video content once I can get my video camera hooked up to my laptop.

Take a hike

As the seasons change so do our footwear choices.

The gladiator sandals are now hidden away waiting for Summer to hit once more and it is time to bust out the old Winter favourite – the Boot.

After months of the Biker boot being a fashion fave, a new unlikely boot style is now in vogue –  the hiking boot.

Before I lose you and you think I want you to take a trip down to Millets, I can reassure you this boot is damn fabulous and is already all over the high street.

With fierce heels and laced-up studs, these boots certainly won’t fare well on any fells but the shearling trim is a nod to the aviator trend without having to invest in a pricey flying jacket.

New Look summer sale: Best picks

With every sale therein lies a dilemma: what items can I purchase which will be wearable for seasons to come and not just an impulse buy for now?

To help you with this trauma I have selected the best bits of New Look’s fabulous 50% off sale which will take you through to Autumn/ Winter 2010.

Spotty Paris Crop Top

Crop tops have been the creme of the high street for Spring/ Summer 2010 but once the sun has gone don’t banish your crops to the back of your wardrobe. This £5 crop reduced from £12 can be worn with a longer top underneath for a sport luxe feel or work it with a high-waisted skirt with just an inch of midriff showing for a sexy yet sophisticated look.

 Cork Platform

These cork platforms are half price at £15 reduced from £30. They are extra leg lengthening so would be ideal with tailored city shorts. For Autumn work with 3/4 harem pants for a more casual look.

Peacock Feather Necklace

This peacock feather necklace is a steal at £5 reduced from £15. Over the summer months contrast with tribal patterns and once winter hits this necklace will provide a dash of colour to your favourite LBD.

Happy sale hunting
