Monday Must have: The outfit saver top.

There are a few things that I think everybody needs in their wardrobe. Items you will come back to time after time and save you from any sartorial dilemma. A great go-everywhere dress would be one of them, a pair of killer animal print heels and a black leather jacket but right up there on the list is a special white top.

I bought this one before my honeymoon and have worn it countless times since. It’s simple with just enough detail to elevate it slightly from a plain shell top and works equally well with a pair of jeans, as a statement skirt.

The reason it’s a wardrobe saver however is that it rescues so many other items that might otherwise never see the light of day. Being neutral it can be worn with any colour, and always works with those new printed trousers, or that bright skirt that you don’t have anything else to go with. Even better, if you have an interview, throw on a jacket and it looks polished too.

Having been on the look out for a replacement for a while, I spotted this one in Topshop a few weeks back and snapped it up. At a mere £40, the beading looks Jenny Packham worthy and the back detail is interesting without being overtly sexy. The only problem I had was finding a bra to work with it, and I ended up going for a multiway from M&S that worn strapless, had an adaptor that wound the back strap around my waist under the cutout back.

This one doesn’t work that well tucked in, hence me leaving it out, (because of the cut out,) but I wasn’t going to leave it there just for that reason. It’s going to be a real wardrobe workhorse and I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of it here. 😉

Have you got a favourite top that you wear again and again?

*Unfortunately this top is no longer available online, but if you happen to be pregnant – the maternity version is still around and a good investment I think to take you right through to the Christmas season, if you have that long to go!

Monday Must-have: The Embellished Clutch

Take it from me, this mornings Must-have is practically an essential. It looks about 5x as expensive as it actually is and is the kind of thing you will have for a very long time, I hesitate to say, maybe even forever.

In my opinion, you need only 2 evening bags in your wardrobe. A great black one that has a little detail to make it stand out but will basically go with anything, whatever the season or style. The other is a fabulous statement bag that will dress up any outfit, go with everything because it is so versatile and have everyone asking you where you got it. This is that bag.



All bags, Accessorize

The pansy bag is of course the object of my lust today, but when I found it I was so stunned by the rest of the selection at Accessorize I had to include more. The bags in there are incredible right now, the embroidery, the beading the gemstones, just out of this world. And the prices are equally astounding. If for whatever reason you want to detract from your outfit or yourself but have events to go to, then this is your answer. You’ll always fit your bag 🙂

Friday Frock O’clock

Todays dress is an event dress for sure, but it’s also the kind of dress that people lust after and wish they could simply lounge around the house in because it is so darn glamorous. I imagine Annabel would wear it to one of her events, or perhaps the Any Other Woman team, after all it is in team colours. Myself, if there had been a second Love My Dress Soiree, as there was this time last year, I would be wearing this…


Peach embellished maxi dress- £150 dorothyperkins.com

The online store image doesn’t do her justice but oh my, look at the gorgeous press image. Just bohemian enough for summer and perfect for a wedding or fabulous party. Anybody thirty soon? Please buy it and rock it with a beaded clutch and some killer keels… or flats for that matter and an Ibiza/summer fields floral circlet headband.

You’re welcome readers.

Love,
