Great Pencil Skirt

Sunday, December 28th, 2008

Topshop Pencil SkirtIf you are looking to update your wardrobe for the New Year whilst saving your pennies then it may be wise to invest in items that are suitable for both work and play.

One item I have my eye on is this dogtooth pencil skirt from Topshop. For just £35 this features a really cute ruffle detailing and an exposed zip at the back.

For the office, team with a simple plain blouse or round neck slim fit Tee along with a skinny cardy and heels.

For play, capitalise on the tweed-like dogstooth qualities and quirk up with fun pieces such as a vintage blazer nipped in at the waist, a clashing print blouse or sculptural heels.


Great Towelling Robe

Azzaro Towelling RobeIf you have made any holiday plans for the year ahead or even what is left of this year then you may need to make room in your suitcase for this gorgeous felouque towelling cover-up by Azzaro!

Perfect for beach-wear or spa-wear it can simply be thrown over your swims for instant warmth or cover from the sun.

Made from cotton towelling and featuring a diamante embellishment along each sleeve, the oversized sleeves make the robe extremely comfortable whilst the belted waist keeps the items from looking frumpy.

You can pick one up from Net-a-porter for £607!

Woody Star Gazer Girl SweaterThis jumper is from the limited edition ‘Woody for Topshop’ range, by designer Zara Wood which features lots of lovely t-shirts and jumpers with a cute star gazing girl design on them.

This is perfect for throwing on round the house or popping out to the shops for forgotten Christmas treats. The grey colour means it’ll go with anything you fancy, and it’ll be baggy enough to wear over other layers. And it’s made of cotton, so no fluff on your favourite black skinnies!

The Woody Star Gazer Girl Sweater costs £30, which is fairly reasonable for a jumper, and it’s a great go to piece for the holidays.

Mui Mui Shoes

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

Miu Miu Bow Front PumpsIf you fancy treating yourself to some lovely new shoes this Christmas then look no further than these Miu Miu Bow-front pumps. As always with Miu Miu they’re the ultimate the style, quality, and just that little bit of quirkiness.

These black patent pumps have got a semi-sensible sized heel on them, so you can get away with wearing them to the office,at weekends, and in the evening as well.

The cute bow on the front and bright pink sole add something different to a plain black heel, and they’re definitely the most covetable shoe I’ve seen in a while. They’d be great for seeing you into the party season and all the way into the new year with their timeless quality.

Being Miu Miu, these babies don’t come cheap, and a pair will set you back £269, but if you do invest in a pair I can’t ever imagine wanting to take them off!

You can get them at Net A Porter now.
