Found: Wolf & Moon

Before I share this lovely find, I just wanted to thank you all for your good wishes on Friday and over the weekend for our move… I’ll write more soon, but it went so well and we are very settled already and happy our new home – I cant believe we’re in and it’s ours! 🙂

You guys might have noticed me mentioning budget finds recently. Today’s find isn’t strightly budget, but it’s a great update for your wardrobe and not a bank breaker either. I love geometric deisgns and these organically inspired pieces made of wood and perspex from Wolf & Moon give a nod to nature for autumn with a colourful update. The earrings pictured are £22-35 and the other pieces from £22-50. I also love that they’re not mass produced or readily available – its lovely having something that not everyone has! Check out the whole collection (and previous collections) at Wolf & Moon.

Spotted: Fossil SS13

You all probably appreciate my penchant for brights by now and so it’s not a surprise that I wandered into Fossil recently attracted by the multitude of bright coloured accessories they stock. In the past Fossil brought to mind chunky brown leather bags which were great quality but lacking directional style. Recently they have really upped their game keeping shapes more streamlined, styles less clunky and the colour and prints spot on bright.

All items available instore and online from
What started with an obsession with the friendship bracelets (my sister bought me the top one shown here for my birthday,) lead to a lust for this arrow print blue and green wallet and the realisation that the brown leather saddle bag (all shown above) has the potential to be a real classic wardrobe staple. If you haven’t already you really should check out the jewellery, with scores of sparkly and enamelled quirky charms perfect for adding to a chain or bracelet, and how cute is that big spot bag?!

Do you love Fossil?


PS! It’s a two post day readers!

Found: Cecily

I am a real sucker when it comes to jewellery, and recently I’ve had a real penchant for dainty delicate pieces with a bit of an edge. So when a press release dropped into my inbox about the launch of Cecily London, a new London based jewellery brand by two sisters, Tess and Libby, I had to share the designs with you.

I’m always looking for jewellery that feels current and on trend but doesn’t look cheap and Cecily London seems to capture that spirit instantly, having the ‘fun appeal of costume jewellery with the class and longevity of fine jewellery.’

Made with a mix of silver, bone, horn and gold plate, the range spans delicate silver bead string chains with rose gold plate skulls to statement pendants all with a spiritual twist.

I’m loving the Rosa Skull for every day and Native Tribe necklace for a fierce touch.

Animal Magic

The trend for animal accessories isn’t a new one but I’m not tiring of it and the nods to our various furry friends seem to just be getting better and better. For some reason Autumn (and Spring) seem particularly appropriate times of year for this style of accessory and I was so tempted by so many of the items in Accessorize recently that I felt they deserved a post all of their own.

*All items from Accessorize

There really is something for everyone with discrete tiny owl stud earrings and diamonte details to larger feathered pendants and chandelier earrings. Here’s a selection of my favourites to update your October accessories.


Put a ring on it…

There’s a particular trend I’ve been seeing a lot of that I have just fallen in love with lately, super thin gold rings. I think I first saw it on Charley over at London Bride (super stylish lady that she is!) and slowly slowly, they’re cropping up everywhere. Whether it’s a few of them stacked on one finger, the thinnest band on every finger, twisted or embellished with cute cut outs, I just think they’re super cute.

After deciding I needed some in my life, I thought I’d round up some options for you whether it’s a quick fashion fix or you want to splurge.

Florence’s Fantasy Gift List…

Before we move onto something serious this afternoon (and totally at odds with this tongue in cheek collection of lust-worthy and shamelessly material must-haves,) I thought it would be fun to put together a no holds barred, money-no-object list of ‘I wants’ and then I’d like to hear yours.

It’s always lovely to be treated to something you couldn’t normally splurge on, or perhaps treat yourself to something for a special occasion, but as my father-in-law says (and I don’t always necessarily agree with,) ‘the fun’s in the looking’, and boy did I have fun creating this list 😉

Feast your eyes ladies 🙂

  • The penguin hardback classics are popping up everywhere with their quirky cloth bound covers but it’s the The F Scott Fitzgerald collection I’m lusting after, with the deco foil designs in metallic shades to glam up my book case.
  • Monica Vinader is a recent obsession of mine, particularly the faceted slices of semi-precious stones she uses for lobe candy – (from Astley Clarke.)
  • It wouldn’t be a Christmas list without a design classic and for my new office, how about this corian and walnut desk from The Conran Shop. Its stylish lines would surely provoke constant inspiration?
  • I’m already thinking of spring and pastels will be a big trend, so have a finger party with a stack of candy coloured bands and nuggets of pretty stones from Astley Clarke, made with the Stacking ring creator. (Spend over £100 on stacking rings and get a £25 gift – Enter RING25 at the checkout.)
  • There’s nothing more luxurious than shearling and this jacket is super soft, a stylish shade and insanely warm. Liora Mid-grey shearling jacket, Reiss.
  • For the (techy) love of my life, this beautiful iPad sleeve by Mulberry. Only the best for my baby 😉
  • To make life with Florence Finds even easier, a Macbook Pro would be a practical but stylish addition to my stocking please Santa, for swift on-the-move editing and lots of Skype face time conversations with everyone from Gemma, to Laura in Canada and my sister in Birmingham.
  • And the Red onion haircalf quilted Bayswater. Need I say more? A steal at £1,924.

Just to humour me, and because I know no-body wants to be in work anymore, drop a comment into the box below and leave me your fantasy festive wish list for some fun on the countdown to the holidays 🙂


Spotted: A DIY necklace

Good afternoon readers!

Today I’m sharing a DIY that I gave a little peek to you all of in my monthly round up last week. It’s a project I found over on Glitter Guide – one of my favourite daily reads and just had to get me some of.

I’m a huge fan of a statement necklace, but I have to admit that often when I try them on I feel like they really take over, or are wearing me rather than the other way round. Perhaps the well spaced chain or the clear crystals makes this one easier to wear but I love it!

I do have to confess however, I am a bad bad DIY-er and actually asked my Mum to make this for me. It’s a super easy DIY and I could have done it without much effort. (so don’t be put off!) Not only was I a bit time strapped but my Mum makes jewellery all the time, so it was much easier and she scoped out the best place to find the parts you will need 😉

I always find half the battle with DIY projects like this (particularly from the US,) is that it’s difficult to track down the component parts so I thought I’d include links to what my Mum used to re-create it.

PJ Minerals is the shop she uses (in Ainsdale, Southport, if you happen to be local!) but it has an online store which all the links above are for, and where you can also find the clasps, links and tools to make the necklace – Bead Sales.

I think all in all she estimated it cost about £4 to make, and I think it would make a fantastic gift for your friends this Christmas.

You can find the whole DIY crystal drop necklace tutorial over on Glitter Guide.

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?
