All that glitters

Christmas is almost here! If there was ever a reason to get your party heels on, here it is. It's the season for glitter and sequins, to dress up and party with friends and family. I have put together a collection of items to get you ready to sparkle! Also, they would make for wonderful Christmas stocking fillers, to spoil the people special to you.

I have chosen the popular Matte Lip Bullet from Topshop in a deep berry colour, for a darker lip. Then, Nars Eye Paint in the radiant colour Snaked Eyes to create a fun, glamorous look. Don't forget the lashes to add some instant drama.

If you want to sparkle from head to toe, the Topshop metallic heels are the perfect option, as, are the gorgeous, silver moccasins. Every outfit needs those finishing touches to make you feel good and ready for an evening out. Above, I have picked some accessories to make you sparkle that little bit more. I especially adore the retro, triangle earrings from Oasis. 

When it comes to jewellery, I can get carried away, thinking 'the more the merrier'. But, as it's Christmas time, it's just the excuse I need! The brand, Crown and Glory, have the most wonderful collection of assorted pieces. These gem-encrusted Liberace kitty ears say it all really! Can you imagine wearing these with your LBD to a party? I can!

What is your favourite item? Have you got your party outfit ready?

girl meets boy

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

I have already spoken about my love for Autumn and the desire to have a wardrobe full of beautiful coats. So, taking a closer look at my wardrobe, it seems I have got myself into a style rut. Maybe not so much a rut, but I seem to dress in a way I know and like. At the moment, it's a very boyish look. A mixture of oversized knits and tops with tailored/slim trousers.

I am very much an admirer of fashion, When on Pinterest, I always find myself searching for style inspiration and pinning the outfits I love. Above, are some looks that reflect that casual, boyish look (I surprised myself by not using a single Alexa Chung image in this collage). The oversized coats, button down shirt and woolly hats, are all very much to my taste.

So, yesterday I spotted the perfect footwear for this post. Amie over at Credit Crunch Chic modelled a pair of beautiful monk shoes on her blog, here. These shoes are now on my Christmas wish list and look great worn with skinny jeans, very mod!

Below, I have made a Asos wishlist. I limited myself to six items, which was a hard task when you have endless options to chose from. The faux fur collar would be a great piece to add some colour and texture to any outfit. I also adore the jumper by Fred Perry - a British brand famous for its boyish charm!
