The Mirror Sunglasses

I got mirrored circle sunglasses this weekend from Portabello Market for a bargainous 5 quid (Topshop had them for 20!). I can't wait to wear them probably with my black chiffon dress and polka dot platform trainers and hair buns. Yes that is the look. 

Here is a sneak peek, photo to follow...

Recycling Old Clothes # 1

Headband - Miss Selfridge circa 2007, Lipstick - Mac Ruby Woo

Dress- Boohoo, cuff - H&M circa 2009

Wore these old clothes of mines out in Clapham on Saturday. After a very tight few months, I've resorted to recycling a lot of my old Uni clothes and have found some right wee gems. 

Being sustainable and creating new outfits = happy me.

Carey Mulligan - US Vogue

I adore these images of Carey Mulligan in US Vogue. To celebrate the release of "Great Gatsby", one of my favourite novels of all time, Mulligan appears in the new edition draped in diamonds, oozing flapper girl style and class. I love these artistic images, and even better seeing the Brit actress in various Miu Miu, Chanel and Alexander McQueen pieces. I am now so excited for the release I may pee my pants with excitment...

Summer 2013 Aspirations

Super happy the sun is rearing its big head this week, LDN Town is positively tropical and I am LOVING IT...

Primark sunglasses (old), River Island neckpiece (old), Primark 90s top and buns (Mel B's)
Lately I've been taking style inspiration from the Spice Girls circa 1998 and donned these buns, 90s crop top and platform trainers for a walk along Regent's Canal yesterday, from Angel to Camden. I love London Summers. 

On another note, I am also loving Crown and Glory headpieces at the moment. The online boutique offers a range of hair accessories from over sized bows to small, quirky accessories ideal for a Spring/Summer wedding to floral crowns. I own two crowns now, the dark red and pastel combo (thanks to one of my best friends for my birthday, see below) and intend on purchasing the cobalt blue for my summer adventures. Cobalt isn't a colour I wear to often but I'm keen to trial soon! 

Get in on this little gem before it gets too popular.
