Vintage Store Hunter Day 1: Gone Retro

4 Comments »

In one of my recent posts, I mentioned my vintage store hunt was beginning to take place, and now that my GCSE exams are finally over (YAY!), so it meant that my friend and I decided to head over to a store close straight after school and began raiding the rails for about 2 hours. The shop keepers were absolutely friendly and were really close in convincing me to buy a fabulous pair of leather platform heels for just £30 ! But I only ended up buying 2 rings (which I will show you in my first ever haul coming up soon!). The store has a very cool vibe with authentic vintage pieces that the store owners personalise and tie dye. It was amazing! This is now my official go-to vintage pieces store. Check out the facebook page which they frequently update.

Here are few pictures I took on the day ...

Shoe, Shoes, and More shoes: Deichmann Shore Store

No Comments »

Hello Everyone!

On Wednesday, I decided to head over to the city center to have a look at a couple of shops and do a little bit of window shopping. So I popped into my favourite shoe store Deichmann to have a look at what they were offering. To my suprise, nearly everything I saw was on sale or just simply fabulous, so managed to get a few pics of the most commonly worn shoes this season. 
Sorry about the quality (blackberry's are rubbish), I should be getting an iphone or sorting out the battery for my camera, so keep a look out. 













Be sure to visit the nearest store to check out some really great shoes for such a cheap price.

Only £29.99

2012 Summer Essentials and Trends

No Comments »

Recently, I went to the shopping centre with a couple of friends, and we had a little look inside some of the shops. The one thing I noticed that was consistently appearing on the racks were amazing new shapes of the peplum dresses and tops, electric blue chiffon dresses, and long maxi dresses. I decided to put together a few images of this seasons essentials and must haves. I will also be showing you ways in which you can style these pieces and create many fabulous looks. 

 



The first look was my interpretation of how to style a really classy Peplum dress from (New Look) which I recently saw on the online store. I paired it with these classic pair of black heels that can transform any look form geek-to-chic! Since I went with the more simple, classic night look, I paired it with simple jewellery as I think the neckline needs to avoid big statement jewellery, but don't be afraid to experiment with pieces. 

 
I decided to go with a paired down down daytime look with this amazing shade of blur chiffon dress with a frizzy cut in the front. Wedges are always a nice way to pair this dress with, without looking tacky. But, you do have to be careful with what colour you choose (I'm even not too sure about this colour), but remember, fashion is about experimenting and adjusting key trends to suit your personal style. 
Look 1: Dress, Shoes, Bag; all New Look, 
Ring, Bracelet and Earrings;all Topshop 
Look 2: Dress, Wedges, and Bag; all New Look
Necklace, Bracelet, Bangle, and Earrings; all Topshop 

I hope this was useful.
