Buy British, literally!

Today is the start of a flash sale on Cocosa, and it’s a really good one! Vivienne Westwood scarves, I think we all know I love a good scarf, but this one is really cool and a nice reference to the wonderful patriotic summer we have had in London this year! Made of wool and silk and 55% off the retail price… This is Great (Britain)

Winter warmers from Sibling

It’s getting chilly and I need my winter warmers. Why dig out last years when you can treat yourself to new ones? I love these pieces by Sibling available from Hervia, the hat is too cute with the pom-poms! Surely the pom-poms will keep you warm and cosy, if you don’t feel it, you will look it at least!

I also adore these really fun gloves, ‘love’ and ‘hate’, part rock n roll, part fashion. Very cool!

I’m a sucker for accessories that match clothing, and I love the idea of wearing this jumper dress with the pom-pom hat! What a cute cute cute outfit!
I love these winter warmers!

Bastyan love

About ten years ago I found a dress I absolutely adored. It was black with a v-neck and beads and crystals and a cameo all stitched around the neck. I thought it looks so beautiful and so special I just had to have it. It reminded me of a vintage couture dress, I bought it and I bought the matching cardigan. I still have them both, they are beautiful items of clothing.
Ten years has gone by and now and the design due Press & Bastyan no longer exists, but Tonia Bastyan still designs under her own name. Her clothes are beautiful, well-made and so special, they still have a vintage vibe and I love her designs.

This week Cocosa have a Bastyan flash sale on, up to 41% off. How exciting, there are some amazing items in the sale, some stunning black dresses with amazing details of crystals, frills, fringing, lace… I love! Here are my faves!

It’s not a game! It’s my handbag!

This bag could be mistaken for a giant piece of a domino set, but actually it’s a beautiful and slightly quirky handbag!
Made by the amazing Charlotte Olympia this domino clutch is just so special, I couldn’t help but dedicate another blog to the brand.
All I can say is I love love love!

Today I’m wearing

Today I’m wearing a vintage dress I bought from a Paris flea market, it cost just a few euros, I obviously didn’t try it on, but it’s huge and I wear it big, and it’s so comfortable. I fell in love with the big vintage collar and rose in the middle.

There’s a small owl brooch pinned on the dress. He’s almost camouflaged, as the dress doesn’t need much jewellery, so I figured he would be a subtle little friend for the day! I got him from a charity shop for about 50p, he’s made of wood and I’m guessing he’s from the 70s.

I’m wearing another pair of Atika shoes today, they are suede and so comfortable. Perfect for walking all day in!

Last night I painted my nails, with Models Own, I used Betty Blue with Dancing queen over the top, which I am totally loving! Especially with the red bow ring!
