Handbags At Dawn


I'm not really a "handbag" kind of girl. Give me a pair of shoes any day!! However, as I've just changed job into more of a "city" environment, I decided I should get myself a smart leather handbag.....although it does have some gold on it just for a bit of jazz!!


There is nothing like the smell of leather!!

I need your advice!

At the end of May I will be attending a friends wedding in the beautiful city of Split, Croatia. The ceremony is going to be held in the Sveti Duje Cathedral.

Beautiful isn't it?! I am very excited as I have never been to Croatia before. Already I am thinking about what I want to wear! I did see a beautiful dress today in Ted Baker but it was white.....don't think I could wear that to a wedding!

I'm not really a glitzy person (so no prom style dresses please!). I prefer clothes that are cut well and are simple. I think accessories can do the glitzy talking for me. For some reason, I really want to wear a nude pair of heels?!! I don't know why I have this in my head. So I think a bright colour block dress will do!

£79.90 Mango, available on Asos
(I love the simplicity of this dress and the colour! The open back detail is the best part....so subtle)
£110.00 Diesel available on Asos
£89.99 Zara (do you think black is too "heavy" for a wedding?)
£59.99 River Island (I saw these today on my lunch break. I love the thin silver heel)



If you guys have any suggestions, I'm all ears!!!

Well hello there stranger

Hi all. It's been a while since my last blog. My mind has been elsewhere unfortunately. I haven't been very happy in my job.....so I've left and I'm starting a new job on Monday! I don't think I'll breath a sigh of relief until I get my foot in the door. I'm a total worrier! One of the perks of my new job, is that I'll be getting paid more. So already I'm looking at things I want to buy......naughty I know!!! The sun is shining outside, which is getting me excited for Summer. So here are a few bits I have my eye on.....
Miss Selfridge £38.00
Miss Selfridge £45.00
Topshop £50.00
Topshop £95.00
H&M £24.99
H&M £14.99

Camden

Camden, a place where you can eat, shop and rave. Camden is one of my favourite spots in London, yes it does get a lot of tourists, but if you ignore all those people, there are treasures to be found and talented people selling their wares. I think the key to a good market is diversity and Camden definitely has that!
Take Cyberdog for example. This place is Mecca for anyone who loves to rave...hardcore!If you want want PVC, fluorescent clothes and masks, this is the place to go. You cannot miss it, as the beats blare throughout the market!
Boots galore. I love the look of second hand leather boots as the leather has that lovely worn in look.

Apologies for the photos, I took them on my phone! There are so many gems to be found in some of the stores, I was so tempted by the blue top with the silver sequins.....

How cool are the old Varsity jackets?!
I need some of this china! I do love a good cup of tea (I'm Irish, what else do you expect!), and what better way to enjoy your tea than out of some beautiful dainty cups!

Somethin' old Somethin' new

I received my goodies from ASOS the other day, kind of hid them from the boyfriend.....I'll slowly show them to him over the coming weeks/months so he doesn't freak out!! Don't get me wrong, I buy everything with my own money, but I end up in my overdraft A LOT.....so he frowns at me sometimes :o)
I'm getting quite into shirts these days. I love the button detail on the shoulder.....
Kinda gives the shirt a military feel.
I wasn't too sure if I was going to like this dress, but it's so beautiful on! This picture doesn't really do the dress justice as you can't see how the different layers drape. Well it looks like this on (except I don't look like this model!!!)
I think this is my favourite buy by far.
This dress is quite simple. I do love an over sized/slub style dress. Hides your belly after you've had a huge Sunday roast!!!
The zip detail on the shoulders gives this simple dress a bit of "oomph".

Matt black spike earrings.


This is my something "old". Got this leather bag in Gran Canaria about 10 years ago (that makes me feel old). The strap broke a couple of years ago and I just got it fixed the other day. I really love this bag, for some reason it makes me think of the 70's and music festivals! I'm going to start using this bag a lot more in Spring/Summer. Speaking of which, received the H&M Spring season magazine through my letter box today. Damn you H&M.....now I've got plans for my next pay cheque!



Ooh leopard print maxi dress, yesssss please and thank you!

I must confess, I have a crush on these two ladies. They are both quite different, but they both have great individual style.
Rihanna and Emma Watson.....!



Do you rate these ladies?!
