Hair Glitz..

It was pretty miserable weather when i took these photos, but i guess it usually encourages me to dress more brightly! since your clothes are always a mood altering factor i love clashing colours and attempting to add a bit of sparkle to a overcast day!

I adore this silk dress (borrowed from the VV Shop), it has such a 30's vibe to it! but as much as i love it i can iron and steam it till the cows come home and then i will sit on the couch and it will crumple straight away..darn it! so please excuse the rumpled look i tried my hardest..i really did! I couldn't wait to show you these Hobbs blue suede shoes! (i mean every girl needs blue suede shoes..right?) i am wearing them for my Auntie's wedding this weekend (slightly panicking about what to wear)

Ive also taken to wearing necklaces in my hair! (Don't think im crazy) it actually is quite cute if you get the right length to hang and it adds a little girlie sparkle. Cute right?

Well this week is pretty busy im helping with a few last minute details for my Aunties wedding on Saturday and since its a 4 day week (because the Queen is in town) im lucky to have a bit of prep time to add new pieces into the shop! (speaking of, if you adore this dress it is up for sale in the shop HERE) have a wonderful day XX

Sunkissed...

Happy Friday! i cant believe how fast the week has gone, its been a blur of coffee, hemming and trying...trying to drag myself out of bed to do some exercise (which never really happened) its so nice that the sun is out now, but it just makes me think about my super white legs being exposed all the more! (not that i mind being super white)

I adore this dress, Its another Asos purchase i couldn't help myself i loved the cut and when it arrived i was more delighted that it fit like a glove!! I know i have curves and ive always embraced them! i think dresses like these flatter my curves a little better and not make me feel like ive got way too much junk in my trunk..And this colour is also my all time fav!

Keeping It Casual...

What on earth!!! an outfit without heels...even though it would be nice to think i swan around all day in heels, do my washing in peep toes and bake cakes in stilettos unfortunately i don't! the fact that im super tall means trotting around the house in them makes me look a little weird if im not heading out anywhere and on weekends its nice to slip on your comfy shoes and give your toes a rest..I took theses pics over the weekend when we had some sun...now its raining again! whats with these random weather changes!

I also received my Bon Look glasses in the mail last week..Huzzah!!!!!! i may have had an unhealthy obsession with wanting glasses (just for fashion purposes i might ad) and i wanted a good sturdy frame that i wasn't going to sit on and break. The boy has a little giggle every time he sees me in them (im noting it as a jealousy giggle) i may not be smarter...but i look it haha!

I had an awesome weekend delivering presents for my niece she turned the big 8, watched the entire season 4 of Dexter in one sitting ( i don't even think i blinked the whole way through) and met up for breakfast with my girlies who just got home from travelling Europe i literally sat in awe listening to their stories! darn it...i want a paris adventure!
And to top off the weekend (as if i haven't gushed about it enough) i was featured on Grazia.It i still cant get used to seeing my photos up and about on the web! pretty humbling.

Well i hope your all having a good week! I baked a batch of Red Velvet Cupcakes last night..eating another one wont hurt right? im eating them in portions so i don't feel so guilty.. (hey..works for me!)
