Another foray into the exciting world of unexpected pairings. Today, a stripy racer back tank and a silky draped skirt, topped off with a mens belt for good measure. I almost slipped a nipple in this shot, I've got to watch my poses if I want to keep this blog wholesome ;)

  • Skirt : River Island
  • Shoes : Topshop
  • Belt & Bracelet : Vintage

Mad Men

I went to a Mad Men party on Sunday and was faced with the conundrum of last minute 60's attire. Can you believe that my hoard like vintage collection contained nothing Mad Men-esque? Turns out I veer more towards the hippy end of the 60's and secretarial chic has alluded me. So, with only minutes to spare before my dear friend Megan picked me up, I threw this together.... a somewhat boho version of those oh so Mad Men.

Unexpected Pairings

I worked on a shoot yesterday that was all about separates. Now, I'm a separates kind of girl, there's so much potential to be creative the more garments you wear. I tend to fail miserably at mixing prints but pairing unexpected textures or pieces together, that I can do.

  • Sweater & Shorts : H&M
  • Shoes : Topshop

And the winner is....

Names went into a hat and one came out... JULIE!
Congratulations lady! Email me or leave a comment with your email address asap.
Thank you to everyone who entered and welcome to all my new followers! That's one thing I love about this blogging malarky; the camaraderie we create with a bunch of people we've never even met before. I love your comments and emails so don't be a stranger!

The other winner this week is H&M. The new Fashion Square store opened last night and I made out like a bandit, so please forgive the upcoming inundation of H&M outfit posts. This skirt is so clingy that you can't eat for a week prior to wearing it. I've been sucking in all day and am likely to pass out soon. On that note I'm off to do some crunches.

  • Skirt : H&M
  • T-shirt : Nordstrom
  • Necklace & Scarf : Vintage

Hot Stuff

It's an insane, dehumanizing 116 degrees this week. There are no fashion choices beyond my imperfect birthday suit that are even remotely alluring to me. And let's be honest, far too much of my vintage filled closet is made of sweat inducing, cheap-o,  man-made fabrics. So I blame the thermometer for my inappropriate work outfits and arse grazing fashion choices. Really, it can't be helped.

  • Tank : River Island
  • Skirt : Forever21
  • Belt & Scarf : Vintage
  • Shoes : Jessica Simpson
By the way, that painting behind me is by my sister and you can find similar pieces on her Etsy.

I'm about to head off on a bohemian themed shoot and I was inspired to don my vintage Missoni. Can you believe I found this at Goodwill??!!!

Summer Hair

My hair is probably the longest it's been in my adult life. I'm still getting to grips with styling it and I regularly have to dispose with the fancy shenanigans it takes to make it beautiful due to lack of time (that damn extra-cup-of-coffee-whilst-watching-Fresh-Prince-re-runs always makes me late to work)! So my new-to-me head scarf look is a real life saver on the mornings when I just have to have that extra jolt of caffeine and watch Carlton dance like a maniac.

  • Scarf & Blouse : Vintage
  • Shorts : H&M
  • Belt & Shoes : Zara
  • Earrings : Nana's

Elizabeth & James Giveaway

I'm feeling so relaxed after my long weekend at the beach that I thought it only right to share some of the peace and love with my readers. I can't take you to the sandy stretches but I can give you the opportunity to expand your closet, and that's almost better right?!

Shopbop has given me $100 gift certificate to give away to one lucky reader! You can spend it on whatever you like but may I make a recommendation? Shopbop carries tons of lovely Elizabeth & James, one of my favorite lines (seriously, those Olsen's can do no wrong in my book).

Now, if I had one hundred lovely smackeroos I'd invest in some Elizabeth & James clothes like this beautiful deconstructed corset.

Or perhaps I'd have to shop the Elizabeth & James sale to expand my shoe collection with these beauties.

On the other hand, or on this hand, one of the Elizabeth & James rings would look gorgeous.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment letting me know that you've become a follower of my blog. If you're already a follower that's fine too, just let me know in a comment that you already follow and I'll include you in the drawing.  You have a whole 2 weeks to make this happen so go on and click that little 'follow' button or Bloglovin icon, it's that easy. I'll draw a winner on July 21st.

And if you don't win, be sure to check out the Shopbop discount codes, maybe something you love is right within your reach!

Good Luck!

Holy Amazing Jewelry Batman!

I've just discovered ManiaMania jewelry and I'm in love. Their pieces are so chunky and space-age in that 70's way, it's right up my alley. Not to mention the look book is outrageously sexy. Friends take heed; my birthday's coming up ;)
