Detachable Fur and Big Bows


|| Coat - French Connection || Bow* - Dawson D Rose || Bag - Fiorelli ||
|| Boots - Missguided ||

So I'm absolutely loving this cute little bow collar! Paisley has always been a love of mine, I haven't actually worn paisley in a while though it seems to have gone off the radar a little! I thought the green would look lovely against my maroon coat - contrast colours and all that. The fur collar and bottom of this coat are actually detachable which is a really handy feature. I have to say though, even though you cant see the length here as I am sitting down, if I were to zip the fur off the bottom it would be quite a funny length! My trusty Fliorelli bag I feel looks great with my coat too, I decided to then add my amazing over the knee boots from Missguided. I swear I can wear them with any outfit and they transform the look completely! These boots have also just come back in stock after selling out really fast!

Covent Garden



|| Coat - French Connection || Dress - Great Plains || Boots - H&M ||
|| Bag - Primark || Earrings and Ring - Market ||

If you live in London and haven't been to Covent Garden to witness its Christmas spirit yet, you really need to get down there. It is probably one of my favourite places to go in London, and with it being all christmassy at the moment, it is even cuter. These photos were taken by the my fellow blogger and new bff Shivon from shivonmakeupbiz.com who is not only the loveliest person ever, but is SO talented at makeup - like seriously. We had a lovely girly day shopping! We knew we would be taking outfit piccies so it was a bit of a let down when it didn't stop raining! Luckily, we found a little bit of shelter in front of this amazingly photogenic door. I got this lovely faux leather dress from a sample sale at work, it is a Great Plains number and I can't stop wearing it! The coat I am wearing is a French Connection one and is now my favourite coat ever. I decided to wear it with all black as I love the contrast. I also need to mention the jewelry I am wearing, I purchased the earrings and ring from an arts and crafts fair on Brick Lane and they are now my favourite things ever in the world. I will have to update this post when I find out what the name of the brand was called because everything on the stall was so beautiful!

Pink And Grey Hues



|| Jumper - French Connection (similar here) || Skirt - French Connection (similar here) ||
|| Bag - French Connection (similar here) ||
 || Shoes - Jeffrey Campbell || Earrings - Charity Shop (similar here) ||

As explained in an earlier post, I literally went crazy at a few sample sales at French Connection. The description above proves just that! Being the cheapo that we all know I am, all of the bargains  too cheap to say no! Anyone who knows me will know that I love baby pink (did you see my hair?) It is literally my favourite colour in the world and the combination of baby pink and grey is something that I love even more! Now that my hair has (finally) faded back to a blonde-ish colour, I can finally wear pink again without the fear of looking too obsessed! For this look I though my trusty grey heels would look lovely with my pink jumper and bag, I then pulled the look together with this sheer(ish) black skirt and extremely old feather earrings. Sample sale items aren't always in store yet so that is why you can see a lot of other options on my outfit line up!

White Lace


|| Lacy dress - Market || Bandeau top - Peacocks || Skirt - Miss Selfridge || 
|| Boots - H&M || Bag - Primark ||

When I first picked this up it felt a little bit like I'd be wearing a wedding dress, but styled right it can be transformed! It didn't come with an under dress and to be honest, it would be quite hard to find one that had the right neckline. I thought that black would look lovely underneath as you would see it quite clearly under the dress which gives a nice contrast. This, once again, makes my outfit  monochrome one which I obviously absolutely love!

Supermarket Chic - George Dresses Wishlist


I have always loved a good bargain, and as you may know, I love anything sparkly even more. Lovely little dresses like the ones you can see above are perfect for the upcoming season and they come with a price tag that doesn't even compare to the likes of more expensive stores on the high street!
These are six of my favourite dresses from George at the moment. You can find their whole range of dresses here.

The first dress on my wishlist was the dress that caught my eye the first. It looks totally expensive because of its satin like fabric and the tailoring. At £16, this dress is the perfect 'quick I have nothing to wear let me buy something sassy yet cheap because I can't afford to break the bank if I am going out tonight, but I can't go out tonight it I have nothing to wear' kind of dress. 
This dress is the perfect all season dress. It can take you through the festive season with its sparkle, yet the colour is perfect for summer too! Who doesn't like pastels?
Sequins sequins sequins! I love how this dress isn't just covered top to bottom in sequins, it is actually covered in a cracked paint kind of pattern which is really cool. 
This is such a 'me' dress. It's pink, it's lacy, its pink and its lacy. It is a little more expensive than the others but totally worth it I reckon!
Okay, so this dress is 1920's style, it is pink and it is embellished with sequins. Is there any more I need to say?
This dress is 100% Christmas in a nutshell - The ultimate Christmas dress! I don't know about you but I wanna rock around the Christmas tree in this little number!
