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!

Folk love

I used to feel jealous of the great clothes boys bought from Folk. I always thought they did great clothing, which is chic and wearable, but always with a tiny fun twist. Quite frankly, I was a little jealous, I wanted the girl version.
I think the whole of East London did a shout of joy when it was announced Folk were going to do their first ever womenswear collection.
I have been into the East London shop a few times, and I now have my heart set on this dress. I love the dusty pink, the subtle Peter pan collar, the vintage styling, the pockets. I think it’s lovely. So pretty, so wearable, it also really simple and fun. It could be styled up so many different ways and be worn hundreds of times! I love!

Product review – Neal’s Yard Remedies Geranium & orange hand wash

Yesterday I popped into Waitrose to get a bit of shopping, one of the things I needed was hand wash. I didn’t intend to, but I couldn’t help myself from buying Neal’s Yard Remedies Geranium and Orange hand wash. It just smelt so good in the bottle; I really wanted to take it home!
Neal’s Yard is an independent British company making wonderful organic products which smell amazing and are great for your skin.
I chose this scent because it reminds me of a spa I love called The Grove in North London. It has a pump, so it only gives you as much as you need when you are washing your hands. It doesn’t foam because it doesn’t contain chemicals, but it does wash your hands and makes them feel dreamy!
I’m guessing this product will last a fairly good amount of time, it was a bit of an extravagance, but oh wow, do I enjoy using it!
I always feel like a good hand wash lasts loads longer than a good shower gel, but they cost the same amount, so it’s a good extravagance!

Today I’m wearing

Today is a lazy Sunday, I walked down to the local shops and bought some things from the deli to munch on for lunch and dinner. I didn’t feel like getting dressed up much, nor matching my clothes! So today I’m wearing a navy blue vintage dress with double breasted buttons down the front. I’m wearing it with a vintage Aquascutum coat, again double breasted.
I teamed it with a necklace I love by Sägen, which I bought from Anthropologie ages ago. I love this necklace, it’s a small circle of a vintage plate which has been cut out of the plate and set into Stirling silver. Each necklace is different by them and each one is hand made in Sweden. I really love it, it’s really special and unusual. I also love the pop of orange!

I am wearing a little more orange today, in the form of these bright orange shoes from Atika’s shoe store of Marrakech. If you are going to Marrakech you must pop in, their shoes are amazingly well made! My bag doesn’t really go, with the orange and navy look I have going on today, as it’s a bright orange and black scarf print 80s bag. But it fits my shopping in and it’s quite fun! It’s amazing what you can find at a charity shop, this bag cost £2!

Product review- The Righteous Butter

Soap and Glory are a British beauty company who make great priced, great products is fun retro packaging.
This Righteous Body Butter is delicious. I really love, love, love the way it smells, it is so delicious.
As a moisturiser this product is lovely. It applies really nicely, it spreads over your skin really easily and it really does make your skin feel soft and smooth and the scent is lovely and really enjoyable. It works really effectively on my dry parts; elbows, knees and thighs. It’s a lovely product and it’s a great price. It also looks lovely in your bathroom! Highly recommended!
Go forth and enjoy!

Classic jewels!

I’m obsessed with scarves, I adore them! This season is very exciting for me as there’s a lot of classic scarf prints around, but not just on scarves, they have found their way onto other things too!
This Versace dress is so scarf-like and I love it! It’s so classic Versace, it’s brilliant! It’s from Net-a-porter.com and it’s brilliant!
Ps-my styling advice would be to wear it with a crown on your head, much like the one in the print! Brilliant!
