One of a Kind

8 Jun

Whilst browsing for style inspiration earlier, I came across a picture of, um, an Olsen and whilst originally glancing at it quickly as just a rather plain casual outfit, I did a double-take and realised that, in fact, I liked it very much. The way in which the sparkly evening bag is pared with a very casual slouchy outfit makes me very happy indeed makes it look effortless and quirky at the same time. And whilst I despise white sunglasses (so have substituted with tortoiseshell) this. on the whole, is a look that I could live in for a long time. Plus, with my recent bag downsizing agenda, this is a perfect solution.

Summer Staples

31 May

Ever since I have started buying my own bags, they seem to have got bigger and bigger every time I purchase a new one so I find myself now, at the grand old age of 21, hauling around half of my life on my right shoulder, and suffering the backpain for it! So, I have decided to begin my bag downsizing and what a better way to start than with this elegant Whistles satchel-style bag and these  summery accesories to match.

1. Aubrey Messenger Bag, £185. Whistles.

2. Camille Classic Metal Arm Sunglasses, £80. Whistles.

3. Sports Watch in White, £15. Oasis.

4. Mother of Pearl and Bead Trim Stetson, £20. Accesorize.

Showy Owl

25 May

In the spirit of putting off my studies for a few minutes longer, I began browsing the internet for owly goodies. I love owls and I think they translate extremely well into arty designs – be it a brooch, or a cushion or THIS SPECTACULAR SPARKLY OWL CLUTCH! When it popped up on my screen, my eyes widened, I leaned forwards on the edge of my seat and then, I looked at the price tag. £3,395. Ouch. It genuinely hurt.

So, until I find myself an extremely highly paid job or a winning lottery ticket or a magic lamp, I shall have to satisfy my Bejewelled Owl cravings with these, still rather special, earrings from TopShop.

1. Owl Crystal Embedded Clutch, Judith Leiber. £3,995.

2. Enamel Owl Stud Pack, Topshop. £6.
