I Want it Wednesday – Reiss Women’s Jillie Navy Faux Fur Jacket

Reiss Women's Jillie Navy Faux Fur Jacket

source: Reiss 

Just the one item this week, as it’s a knockout. I’ve been searching for a blue faux fur jacket or coat ever since seeing one in the Topshop AW11 party collection. I love the ombre striped effect on this Reiss jacket, which is pretty standard but seems elevated with the coloured faux fur, almost neon. I think the blue would look amazing against black leather trousers and a low-neck white tank top. Not really sure how I’d feel about pairing it with more colourful offerings though. Even though colour blocking is pretty trendy right now, I think it might be a bit too much.

Ps. Sorry for the late post, I was just so busy yesterday and forgot!

Outfit: Love is in the Air

jumper: Illustrated People, skirt: Topshop, coat: Zara, boots: Schuh, bag: French Connection, headband: Accessorize, scarf: French Connection

A bit of a cute look here, as it was mine and Callum’s 7th anniversary, and if you can’t dress cutely on your anniversary then when can you? We went to Cheltenham for a night to celebrate, and driving there and back through all this lovely countryside was really nice, so we stopped off at a few places to take some pictures and soak up the green.

I love this little Topshop skirt with love hearts on it. It’s really girly though so I always wear it with things like this military-style coat, bootsquilted bag, oversized jumper and heavy-duty scarf. We bought the panda headband in Cheltenham as I was looking for a headband to keep my ears warm and Callum seems to think anything panda-related looks cute on me!

I Want it Wednesday – Fringe Boots

B Brian Atwood Pembra BootsSam Edelman Louie BootsChristian Louboutin Rom Boots

I’ve really got into fringing on clothes lately. I always thought it was a bit shabby looking and a danger hazard (those frayed ends could so get caught on stuff) but after getting this Nasty Gal top I’ve been turned around. So next on my fringe list are boots. They add a little cowboy edge to any outfit and are great for summer too with denim pieces.

I’m in love with the B Brian Atwood Pembra boots. The block heel is really cool and the almost purple-tinted colour is just beautiful. The Sam Edelman Louie boots are also a great piece as they’re so versatile and the low heel makes them super wearable. Plus, they’re a great price – unlike the Christian Louboutin Rom boots, which are way out of my monetary league. But they’re so gorgeous and I love their boho charm, so maybe they’re one to save up for. It’ll only take a few years after all …

Looking at these photos there seems to be a schoolgirl vibe going on … maybe it’s the long socks, blazer and backpack combo! But that wasn’t intentional, promise 😉 I just really wanted to take these new Nasty Gal shorts on an outing and since it was too cold to go barelegged I put on these socks and layered up with two jackets. I’m a major cold wus but this outfit kept me nice and warm.

I found finding shoes to go with long socks  really difficult! Settled on these pink plimsoles as they match the shorts. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what shoes to wear with them?

I Want it Wednesday – Deadly Ponies Mr Safari Hobo Bag

I’ve been on the hunt for a slouchy, fur-trimmed bag and think I may have found it in this Deadly Ponies beauty.  I am in love with the detailing and how it all comes together so effortlessly. This bag is pretty trans-seasonal too – it would be great in winter with leather trousers and jumpers and then in summer with little shorts and fringed tops.

Dirty Pretty Things Lingerie

Dirty Pretty ThingsDirty Pretty ThingsDirty Pretty Things

A while ago I won a competition over at Freak Deluxe for £100 to spend on Dirty Pretty Things lingerie. Sadly they had stock issues and so the prize changed to a bra and pants set of their own choice sent over to me (grumble grumble, I really wanted this beauty), but luckily the set they sent me was perfect in both style and fit. I love the little skull and cross bones, as I’m totally all-out Comic-Con crazy when it comes to the Japanese anime One Piece (I have a t-shirt to wear when I watch the show and sign and dance along to the theme-tune … ahem), so now I can channel my favourite pirates whilst being sexy at the same time. Yes!

I Want it Wednesday – Nasty Gal Oversized Jumpers

Nothing is more sexy than a girl in an oversized jumper, her hair thrown carelessly around her face and perhaps a hint of shoulder and cleavage showing. Nasty Gal is the bomb for this look. I love their styling, it’s the best for an online retailer I’ve seen, and I gotta try those gorgeous berry lips.
