Friday Frock O’clock

This week, I bring you the first of many party dresses. It’s time to start thinking about office parties, Christmas Parties, New Year’s Eve and even Christmas weddings. You can absolutely never ever go wrong with an all over sequinned dress and this one from MANGO has my favourite style of boat neck, cap (slightly on the fierce side) sleeves and a rather lovely belt too.


Sequin velvet dress – MANGO £79

It reminds me of Gwyntheths kick ass red carpet come-back when promoting Iron Man and if we can all look that good, well, then I’ll consider my job done 😉

Happy weekend readers,

Love,

What to Wear: Everyday Sparkle…

Just recently, with so much going on, I’ve not had time to go out and sparkle in public, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to put the glitz on and give myself a bit of a mental boost. I might not want to put on my finest top for lounging around in, but when I spied this sequin front top from Marks and Spencer (Indigo collection) I knew it was perfect for relaxing whilst still feeling a little bit special.



Top, Marks and Spencer // Trousers, H&M (also seen here and here) // Toes, Essie Lapiz of Luxury

Of course, no matter what I do, I can never really get any peace and quiet with my two cats around, I’m lucky if they don’t literally walk across the keyboard but I just can’t stay steely against their purring advances.

I’m pretty sure this top is going to be in heavy rotation in the coming months as winter approaches. I can see it with everything from a maxi skirt to shorts and it’s dangerously comfy.

Gets yours for £45 from Marks and Spencer

Friday Frock O’clock: The NYE Edition

It’s that time again – whatever your feelings about New Year’s Eve, it’s fast approaching and that often means a what-to-wear dilemma. So this week’s Friday frock, is not a frock. Gasp!

I thought this week I would share New Year’s eve outfit (if we can blag a table somewhere, as we have left things somewhat later than usual…) and I’ve had my eye on this Ted Baker jumpsuit for a while.


Jumpsuit: Ted Baker £100, Clutch: Ted Baker £99, Bow heels: Ted Baker £67, Earrings: £260 Astley Clarke

As it’s not just any night, (do I sound like an M&S advert?) and this isn’t just any frock, I thought I’d go the whole hog and create the whole outfit. Not usually one for putting a whole look together in one shop (no-one wants to look like the mannequin in the window after all) I did however fall hard for the rose gold tinted bow peep toes, that would glam up any outfit from here on in. That and the (note the theme) rose gold envelope clutch add a suitably sparkly touch on the accessories front. With a neckline like this, I’d always opt for some fabulous chandelier earrings and these by Miguel Ases from Astley Clarke would do nicely. I like that they tone but don’t match and sparkle without being gaudy.

Now Cinderella just needs a ball to go to!

I hope you all have a wonderful night tomorrow and if you haven’t already shared in this morning’s post, do leave a comment and let me know what you’ll be doing, and of course, what you’ll be wearing.

See you in 2012!

The Fash Flash – Party Accessories

Erm, Hello!

That’s what you’ll all be thinking when you clap your eyes on the fanciest heels and standout bags in today’s Fash Flash. I was loving putting them together!

Lets get straight on down to it. You’ll see I’ve grouped my top picks by trend today, to make it easier for you to take the ideas away, even if the exact item you want isn’t here. Enjoy!

There seem to be about a million pairs of shoes I could buy just now, but there are some really strong trends that I’ve grouped together here, including a small offering of flats for those of you who just can’t bear the pain of a heel for an all-nighter or are endowed with glamazonian height. 😉

The Shoe Boots: Sheer zebra stripe boot, Topshop, Frill boot – Zara and Simba V-throat shoe boots – Topshop.
The Metallics: Multi-colour glitter heels – Carvela, Garbo Deco Piped Sandal (Emerald green) – Reiss and Showcase Double Platform Peeptoes (Bronze metallic) – Topshop.
The Statement Heel: Saturn Gold heel peeptoes – Reiss, Taupe suede heels with studs, Sam Edleman at My-Wardrobe.com and Strut Metal heel platform shoes (blue velvet) – Topshop.
Party Flats: Glitter pump – Marks & Spencer. Pale pink sparkle ballet flat and silver snake skin flat with ankle strap, both Zara.

Christmas Party Bags

I am a self confessed perfectionist when it comes to bags – they are my ‘thing’. Therefore I either buy cheap throw away high street fashion or splurge on super expensive keep-forever pieces. That said, I’d take a couple of these high street offerings over a more expensive one, particularly the puma clutch. Make yours a hard case box bag, massive envelope for statement style, or a shimmering accent to a block colour dress.

Box Bags: Reiss octagonal ‘Comet’ clutch bag, Velvet Frame clutch bag – Topshop and Snake hardcase Puma clutch bag – Accessorize.
Glitter Bags:Jane at the Disco cross body bag, Marc by Marc Jacobs at My-Wardrobe.com. Gold Sequinned wallet and Aztec Sequin wallet – Zara.
Oversized Envelopes: Contrast piping clutch – Accessorize,
Humbug clutch (green zip front) Kurt Geiger and Pink Suede envelope clutch – Accessorize.

Did I not tell you you would love them?

Share your pleasure at the pretty ladies 😉

Love,
Rebecca

The Fash Flash… Glitter Girl

It’s no secret, I’m a huge fan of glitter. Sequins, beading or lurex, I love adding a bit of glitter to every day style.

This season, there has been a huge trend to include sparkle into everyday outfits and that suits me just fine. I’m a particular fan of the trend when paired with super casual items like a chunky knit or jeans and there’s plenty of ways to accessorise with sparkle too if you like to keep it subtle.

So this week’s Fash Flash, in time for your Christmas lists and parties, is the glitter edition. I’m going to have a seriously hard time not spending a fortune after putting this one together!

So, are you a glitter girl?

Love,
Rebecca
