It's a Winter Wonderland

on Sunday, 07 November 2010. Posted in Shopping, Fashion

I love the new collection from Nicole Richie's Winter Kate brand. The collection is infused with Richie’s signature style and was inspired by peacocks and other birds and features wraps and camis in antique lace, cute prints on kimonos and waistcoats and outerwear.

She really is making this season a Winter Wonderland!

I particularly favour her printed kimonos and jackets, they add a vibrant burst of colour to any outfit and during the miserable weather they remind me of the bright warmth of a summer’s day. The butter jasmine silk velvet jacket is especially gorgeous; it’s only available from my-wardrobe.com and would be a great alternative to a dull black cardigan. There is also a purple version for those of you who feel a little more comfortable in darker shades.

To See, or Not to See...

on Wednesday, 03 November 2010. Posted in Shopping, Fashion

Alongside writing my own blog, one of my favourite pastimes is reading other people’s blogs. My ‘it’ blog of the moment is MyFashDiary.com, written by the ever-so-stylish Tala Samman. This is a girl who was born with style-icon DNA, her mother Lina Samman is the face of Nina Ricci in the Middle East, so it’s clear she knows what she’s talking about.

I was browsing during lunch yesterday and spotted her post featuring her outfit picks from theOutnet’s party pieces collection. I was instantly drawn to the gold See by Chloe skirt she was wearing in one of her outfit photos. A couple of clicks later I arrived on theOutnet.com, not concerned with spending loads of money as there is no way they would have it in my size... but of course they did... eeekk

From Deepa with Love

on Tuesday, 02 November 2010. Posted in Shopping, Fashion

My latest style crush is focused on the gorgeously exotic headbands designed by Deepa Gurnani. Favoured by celebrities like Cheryl Cole, Katherine Heigl and Paris Hilton (I’m not sure if that’s positive or not?!), they help add that little bit of glamour to even the most mundane outfit.

I’m currently the proud owner of two of her headbands, but I’m dreaming of owning more... lots more.

I justified my first purchase as a ‘treat for my honeymoon’ and to be fair I wore it all the time. It added some sparkle to my daytime beach outfits and helped me combat my tresses (my hair + severe humidity = disaster!) during the evening.

My New Bib Necklace

on Thursday, 28 October 2010. Posted in Shopping, Fashion

Before I start this post, I think I should just comment on how hard it is to take a photo of yourself using a phone. This isn't something I've tried to do before, but I wanted a photo of me wearing my new bib necklace and as I discovered it's really hard to get a picture that doesn't have the phone in the way. So I'll apologise in advance for the poor quality of these pics, I clearly need to practice doing this a bit!

Anyway... my new necklace has arrived and I love it. It's unlike me to choose a statement necklace, but I'm really glad I did and now I'm just thinking of occasions I can wear it. Housewarming on Sat perhaps?!

High Street Hits

on Saturday, 23 October 2010. Posted in Shopping, Fashion

Since the weather was truly abysmal today, I made the decision not to venture out of the house and decided instead to replace my regular browse round the high street shops with a browse round the web.

There were two items on my hit list; firstly I wanted to get a great piece of knitwear (either a jumper or cardy) to wear with my skinny jeans. Something comfy, but stylish enough to wear outside of the house – a category in which most of my current jumpers sadly don’t belong. Second on my list was a statement bib necklace. I love the new pieces from Mimbo and I can see several potential Christmas present requests from their new collection. But for today I’m sticking with high street stores and, more importantly, high street prices!
