Walk on the dark side…

January 25, 2015

blogs_pics_093 blogs_pics_114I was treated to this studded Valentino bracelet by the kind folks over at Harvey Nichols. I choose tan leather so it can sit along side my Radley watch and have a little arm party – I know two stacked isn’t really a party but as I don’t wear much jewelry it does for me!

As for the outfit this dip hem dress and khaki shirt combination is a firm favorite, to make it more weather appropriate I added my faux leather jacket and faux fur stole.

Lake on the common…

January 17, 2015

amy_052amy_054amy_073I love this burgundy hat but boy is it cursed, the day I brought it (with Christmas stocking filler money) I showed Dave and there was a little pull in it and ever since its gotten even more pulls – I hate it when things like this happen! I’ve now come to terms with its scruffy-ness…
I also call this my wheres Wally (or Waldo ;-) ) look, what with the combination of the beanie hat and glasses.amy_060amy_071amy_042amy_057amy_055What I’m wearing -

Modern Military…

January 14, 2015

amy_012amy_021amy_029This modern military look was inspired by a mens wear editorial I saw in a free fashion magazine I was given. The look was styled with khaki green and army shirts worn with long trench style coats and tough ankle boots. For my version of the look I went with this sheer camouflage blouse and my gold clutch bag adding in soft feminine touches. My duster coat and skinny jeans cement the outfit and as a final touch my chain ankle boots to give it that little extra somethin’ somethin’.

What’s in my bag?

January 11, 2015

whats_in_my_bag_03image-1I thought it would be fun to do an updated ‘what’s in my bag?’ post but with a twist. I’m working on a special collaboration and to help me back into the drawing swing of things I came up with this little post. Of course my new satchel had to be featured ;-) annnd yes all this fits into my bag!

Check List…

January 8, 2015


How’s the new year treating ya’ll so far? Mines going rather swell, my day job is going well and I’ve got some exciting projects lined up for the blog – which I can’t wait to finish creating and share!

About this look – I’ve been wearing this Tallulah’s Threads dress a lot lately and it’s now on sale if you’d like it too ;-) – this time I styled it with a vintage blouse underneath and with my new-to-me hat. I picked up this hat from the voucher codes swap shop back in November, and as I’m still in the obsessed stage with my new Satchel there was only one bag I was going to use, plus it goes great with the colour pallet of the outfit!amy_blog_001amy_blog_013amy_blog_008 amy_blog_019

Double Plaid…

January 3, 2015


Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Happy New Year!! I had a great time down at Dave’s parents but sadly I caught that horrid stomach bug and was out of it for two days – I was so ill I couldn’t travel back to London or go to work but I’m back in the big smoke and all is back to normal now!

We spent our New Years Eve with friends in a private pub lock-in, it was great fun and we spent New Years day recovering, doing lots of blog planning and going for a long walk. I wanted my outfit to be comfortable  and relaxed for our walk, I dug out this old vintage plaid shirt added my new blue jeans and for an extra touch I wore checked socks. The checked socks and beanie hat were cute stocking fillers from my Mother and my ever so pretty new Cambridge Satchel is from my Father. Oh how pretty it is!! I’ve wanted this bag for, oh about four years and now I have my hands on it eeek! I think it’s safe to say you’ll be seeing a lot more of it!
