Zara In-store Favourites..

Ages since i've posted, heres some great pieces from Zaras latest Spring/Summer collection available in stores now. 
My favourites below will include women's wear. 
..........................................................................

Leather Acessories 

This Croc-leather detailed bag was my favourite find for the day, with a woven chain through the edge of the front flap, i love this bag and its mainly because its so Chanel inspired (Boy bag) 
                        
This electric/petrol blue leather tote is also one of my favourite finds.. i love this colour and throughout Zara's women's collection you will see they have continued to introduce it into their clothing. This tote bag is also available in black and charcoal grey which is great for those looking for a standard everyday bag great for work.


Whilst shopping with my friend becky we also noticed the citrus lemon 'NON-STOP SUMMER' clutch bag which is great for chilled days out or even events like summer BBQ's you could also dress it up and accessorise it with a bright summer outfit for an evening out to dinner or party. 
     ..........................................................................
Clothing 

Not the best photograph or quality however i'm sure most of you have seen this BIG STATEMENT lemon yellow coat which has great zip and pocket detail and soft trim round neck.

This coat was not my favourite however it made my favourites post as i found another Chanel inspired piece.


THIS DRESS, i love this print and although it may be bold for some i think this would look great with a simple white fitted jacket/blazer and some orange heels. 


As you will know if you read through previous posts i love lime green and the love for that colour is still there which is why my attention was attached to this jacket as well as the amazing print that goes along with it. 

Stripes are hard to work but this jacket was so refreshing it reminded me of a FAB Lolly. This jacket would look great with a simple black or white vest top and some white fitted trouser with black or red heels which would be great for evenings out.

Print/ Material / Colour 



So looking at these three images these are my favourite colours all put into different pieces as you can see i;m loving the pale sky blue as well as lime & mint green followed by melon ball orange.

The pattern on the items around really do show great detail and when in person looks so much better and adds more of an effect.

When matching big prints with soft/bright colours it really helps create a beautiful summer outfit and i fell that the pale/sky blue long maxi skirt would work really well with not only the long cotton palm leaf top but also other products like a simple white vest tucked in for more casual events.

For more chilly summer nights the jacket on the left with the green/purple & blue detail would look great with a very neutral outfit bringing the attention to the top half of the body.



Just a brief, small post.

TEA BAGS? .. NO.. TEAPODS


Its well known that brits are known for their love of everything TEA! I am completely guilty, i have so much love for standard english breakfast tea its untrue and i can confirm i have consumed up to 15 cups in one day. #CRAY

I am now trying to widen my taste-buds and allow them to indulge in different flavours & textures whether it be food or drink. (Olives & Prawns are a NO NO!) 


When receiving information about BistroTea and their innovative Tea pod i was very intrigued as it was involving green tea which i have tried plenty of times in the past an i just haven't been able to enjoy it so i had some samples sent to me via post. The day they arrived was a great day as i also received an order that i had placed with ASOS which is always a positive package... but back to TEA.

I was sent to Tea pods which i was very grateful for one was standard Green Tea with ginger, and the other was a Honey Herb Tea. They were both amazing the honey tea was nice and sweet and easy to drink and actually has helped me with my sore throat that i've had this past week, today i went for the green tea and i LOVED it.. i think the hint of ginger made the experience more enjoyable for me. 

The pods are really easy to use and as a student was great as you don't need a spoon the pod acts as a spoon and you can stir whilst infusing more flavour into your tea. You basically just pour the hot water from the kettle over the pod and stir and leave for 5minutes to ensure your tea has the best flavour. 

The pods are in a foil like material and are preserved in a paper pouch which keeps the flavour and contents inside securely and also is ideal for traveling and taking them on the go whether to work, education or day to day runs. 




Overall i am extremely happy with this product and for those of you who cant get into green tea or any other herbal tea then i really do suggest either purchasing some pods or enter the competition below with the chance to win a years supply! 


By clicking the link below you can obtain 15% off your purchase online when buying the pods or other products which would be a great gift for mothers day!

Mulberry ... #Mulberrylove

As of yet i haven't had the LFW experience which would be amazing.. however i wouldn't have been able to make it over this weekend.  This does not stop me browsing the brands collections when i have time and Mulberry is looking amazing!!

For those who may have not seen some of the collection look below..



I think Cara Delevigne is a GREAT face for Mulberry as she is a British model and Mulberry is a British brand which works very well but also i think in my personal opinion that this is Cara's prime time and over the past year or so has really been in the spotlight for her work more than any other! 
She also shows the collection really well and i think the innocent look that is being portrayed above is very warming.



So here are some of the new pieces to join Mulberry's standard collection as they always have their standard Bayswater & Piccadilly handbags. 

My favourite newbies has to be the bayswater style rucksack in the petrol blue and the quilted leather, and also the camouflage leather rucksack & across body bag. 


Overall impressive collection featuring a lot of practical looks and camouflage print! BUT i am not a fan of the off pink studded bags which are shown above, sorry to say it but i think they look fairly cheap!

Rich Kids Of Beverly Hills! #birkinlove

Just a quick post, one that has never actually been done before.

TV/ REALITY SHOW REVEIW/ OPINION!


THE #RICHKIDSOFBEVERLYHILLS 

Is officially my NEW, FAVOURITE.. reality show. Not only is it set in one of my most dreamed about areas but its also based on Money, Fashion, Travel & Social Media and most of all #HASHTAGS... all of my favourite things.


As i live in the UK we are 1 episode behind the US.. HOWEVER! i am that addicted i had to catch-up online and see what happened in CABO! And the drama still continues into the next episode. 

So as soon as i saw that Morgan & Dorothy were Instagram lovers i followed them instantly and my guilty pleasure is liking every single photo they post! Whether it be Twitter or Instagram! 

Dorothy is my favourite and i love how she is always accompanied by a Hermes Birkin.. thats just ideal! However i LOVE Morgan as she is just so outspoken and says the most funny & random things which always make sense i love it. Also the fact she loves Louboutins and her blog is called BOOBS & LOUBS she is just a total winner. 
( I was also so happy she received her green Olive Givenchy bag)

P.S I ALSO WISH I COULD DRINK AS MUCH TEQUILA AS THIS LOT DOES. 

The cast is outstanding and i'm sure will continue to grow. Maybe i should move to BH and work my way into the show? 



EJ is another favourite of mine who was also followed on Instagram instantly and i also love every single photo!!! As do i love his turquoise Birkin handbag above. 

I just wish i  could experience their JET SET lifestyle. 
I dont think ALL of them realise how lucky they ACTUALLY are. 
( but i'm sure they are grateful)

Selfridges&Co Menswear Favourites

S E L F R I D G E S & CO  

I am really enjoying posting up my favourites from various designers & companies from their online websites as it means that i can not only enjoy finding my favourites but its also an excuse to be online shopping (when i have money)

So as you have probably guessed i have had a good browse through the menswear collections that are showcased on their website, the good thing about the website is it shows everything thats located in every store for those who are not located to the Oxford St store as this store tends to have the majority.

MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA

Maison Martin Margiela is a brand that i have never really looked at but since today and having a browse on the Selfridges website i am well and truly sold and inspired. This amazingly structured and cut jacket has really caught my eye and i love how it has the two shades of grey and paired with a white shirt and dark trousers.. i love the style of the short cut collar and how the body of the jacket is cropped. 


 

Moving on from the jacket i have found yet ANOTHER lime green/ yellow jumper, this is also by Maison Martin Margiela i love the colour of this jumper as those who have read my previous posts this week you know i'm a lover for lime! unfortunately one thing i would love to change about this thin jumper is the elbow pads that come with it, if it wasn't for those i would be all for it but for now its just the colour thats pleasing me.


K  E  N  Z  O

On to KENZO, this brand is really starting to catch my attention with their KENZO jumpers already being on my wish list for 2014... preferably in the dark/sky blue. This shirt is right up my street, i love how its a dark subtle navy shirt with the eye catching white and blue stripes, although the price maybe a little high this shirt would be great for nights out in town or a delicious meal... the stripes are a great excuse for those who don't like tucking their shirts in.
 

JUMPERS .. i've already explained how important jumpers have been to me in 2013! They are just super easy to work with and just match them up with a pair of trousers and your good to go. This jumper isn't exactly the one i want HOWEVER it is still stunning, i wouldn't mind having all of their jumpers but unfortunately the bank wont allow it! I love the detail placed inside the letters of the logo, simple yet stunning..
 
Ive also already explained if you follow my blog that i have booked a holiday for the summer and its vital that you do start looking for holiday clothes as soon as possible because before you know it , its all been sold out and the winter stuff is being put in place! Kenzo t-shirts are also my new love and i'm definitely going to be looking at buying a few for my Holiday!


MCQ ALEXANDER MCQUEEN



 

Yes i love jumpers, the style to this McQueen jumper is exquisite the detail to me makes it look like it has lace for each individual section, personally i probably couldn't pull this huge print off but i would try and i would match it up with white trousers as it is above.. but this had to be in my favourites as the print makes it an all round winner!

 



Accessories are always needed and one possible look for this belt i would took the McQueen jumper into a pair of black skinny fit trousers and have it roughly tucked and then i would wear this beautiful Python McQueen belt and i would fold up the end of the trousers and wear it with the detailed McQueen loafers below.

 

So if you have read the section above you may either agree with the outfit style, you may not but that is personally what i would do and i think it would look ideal and add a great edge to the look. These skull printed shoes are also in my favourites as its very similar detail to the jumper above! They have a great style and i love how the skill is placed within all the detail and makes it a more simple effect.

 

This McQueen jumper is in my favourites for once again the ATTENTION TO DETAIL, thats what i'm all about, fashion isn't just fashion without the art and the concept behind it.

I have no words for this jumper other than utterly AMAZE.



Giuseppe Zanotti

 

Im not a HUGE fan of Giuseppe's but i love the detail they include into their shoes and i wouldn't mind a pear, but these Python shoes are just delicious.. with the standard side zips and gold plaque velcro bands i just love how the Python skin is complimented by the chrome zips, shine of the plaque's and the black laces, OVERALL THUMBS UP.



MARC BY MARC JACOBS




LASTLY, for me this is my overall favourite that is in menswear, thats just my opinion. I most certainly   LOVE this creation. I think its more to the fact i'm loving jumpers this Leopard collection by Marc Jacobs is really doing it for me and the fact i can have shorts to match makes it an all in one!!! This outfit would be great for travelling and the run up to winter before it gets too hot and you'd have to remove the jumper. For a total of £350 its a pretty expensive look but I'm so determined to work for it!
