My Sunday Best!!!

I may just put these on and NEVER take them off… EVER!!!

These are featured on Look website, you can get yours from River Island!!!

The Finer Things in Life…

Had a fabulous week this week, I was delighted to have been one of the lucky few invited to the Hurlingham club Concours D’Elegance event, anyone who is anyone knows about this exclusive soiree, which brings together some of the world’s most exclusive brands for a grand three day event in celebration of everything that epitomises luxury… translation: designed for me!!!

It was a day filled with fine dining, champagne, vintage cars and fashion… aaahhh tis’ the life!!! Check out a couple of snaps I took from the event.

Outside of the venue, set in the lovely Richmond.

I always considered myself a vintage Ferrai kind of gal!

Aside from the glorious food, jewelry exhibitions, fashion show’s, and yacht tours, there was also a racing car thrown into the mix!!!

‘Pins out’ was a must for the summers day event too! This weekend promises to be an eventful one… I’m already excited for next year’s event!!! 🙂

The ‘Perfect’ Bicycle!

If you haven’t realised by now that a bicycle has been firmly cemented as a MUST HAVE accessory for summer 2011, then seriously where have you been?? 😉

Raleigh, have created a classic line full of vintage inspired bicycles. The classic bikes are nostalgic, stylish with traditional British design, and I for one think they’re tres chic!! Does anyone else have a slight urge to jump into a floral midi frock, buy some flowers and a baguete to pop into your basket, and go for a little bike ride??!! !!** cough**!! just me then?? I decided to put together some a la mode bike accessories for all you lovely cyclists.

These little pouches from POKA come in a range of colours to coordinate with you outfit… GENIUS!

It’s all in the detail with this chain cover, from POKA!! 🙂

Ok, ok, so I know this little treat may not be to everybody’s taste but you gotta admit it is definitely quirked out, if not a tad eccentric… maybe… just a little!!!

If you fancy taking part in a ladies only cycling event in the wonderous british countryside then why not sign up to Cycletta, and find out what’s on 🙂

Happy Cycling

Maxi Dresses Galore!

Is anyone else as excited as I am over the potential scorcher of a weekend coming up??? **!!Happy Shimmy!!** There are still a whole heap of gorgeous maxi’s to get your hands on, if your wardrobe isn’t teaming with them already!!! The thing I personally love about maxi’s is they’re easy, comfortable, glamourous and ultra feminine!

I think this piece is pretty classic, it’s simple, bright and a staple in the wonderful world of maxi dresses! Oh and not to mention an absolute bargain at £19.99 from Prodigy Red.

We all know that florals are still a big look this summer, the delicate print on this dress is an instant winner for me!!! Yet, another bargain.. (thank me later ;)!) from Select Fashion!!

For a more dressed up look this piece is perfect from Aqua by Aqua, it’s sultry,sexy, and perfect day/evening cross over material!!!

I’m loving Aqua by Aqua at the moment and this is another dress from their absolutely stunning collection!!! Oooohhh and the bright orange just pops!!!

Don’t forget to snoop our gorgeous collection of Maxi’s 🙂 at ClosetBox.

This season has saw the revival of the midi-maxi dress, and I adore this piece for a fresh take on the traditional cut!!! xx

Happy Shopping Peeps! x

Copy Cat Caggie!!!!

No more TOWIE, or Made in Chelsea, and now Geordie Shore is officially over too…! **!!SAD FACE!!**

Whether you admit to watching them or not, these shows are absolute guilty pleasure T.V gold dust!  And lets face it, if TOWIE is the fish and chips of the TV world,  Made In Chelsea, is the equivalent to a delicate caviar canapé! In the first episode of Made in Chelsea Mark-Francis stated that “High street fashion is never allowed under any circumstance…EVER” so I was shocked when I discovered these pics of Caggie who has ‘swagger jacked’ TOWIEs Lydia’s style… **!!GASP!!** I wonder what the Chelsea set will have to say about this!!!!????

Caggie 22, pictured above. I fell in love with the stilleto’s, big hair and over the top styles from the TOWIE cast, and the fine tailoring exhibited by the Chelsea set 🙂

Lydia seen last week, walking her little trotter, **!!aaww sweet!!** donning the laughing cow ensemble! You can’t go wrong with some shorts and a basic T-shirt, for a dressed down casual summer look… shop our ClostBox T-shirt collection here 🙂

Sorry Caggie, Lydia rocked it better on this occasion!!! 🙂 What do you guys think??!! Is it all about high st or high end fashion? Orrrrr is it all the same thing??!!!!

 

An Ode to the Beehive…!

Over the weekend the music world lost an immense talent!  Amy Winehouse passed away at the young age of 27, we’ve all read the tributes and blasted our Frank and Back to Black albums, now its time to take a look at Amy the fashion icon. Amy’s trademark beehive hair and flicked eyeliner have been reworked on countless celebs and catwalk runways! After a sombre weekend, what better way to celebrate the life of an  indisputable fashion inspiration than to observe the looks that she inspired.

Just a small snippet of how Amy has Inspired different looks in the world of high fashion!!! I think we can safely say the beehive has made a revival… Thanks Amy, for the big eyeliner, the even bigger hair and your soulful sounds!

Sunday Best!!!
