#My Style My Dress

December 1, 2015

I was challenged by HOF to style a dress in my own way, along with some other fashion bloggers – we all got the same grey dress and a secret accessory. My secret accessory was this super cute grey floppy brim fedora hat from Dorothy Perkins (my trade mark hat must be a real thing now ;-) )

I got to thinking up a couple ways to style this dress – as it’s a total blank canvas of a grey swing dress I thought about layering something underneath or over, and as it’s pretty much winter now I went with the layering over option. I added my favorite cropped fluffy jumper (an old Topshop goodie) adding in this vintage leopard print scarf and my camel car coat. I love camel and grey together, they are a perfect colour pairing in my eyes! This floppy brim fedora adds the perfect finishing touch to my outfit.
How would you style a basic grey dress? #mystylemydress A fun hash-tag for ya’ll to use ;-)

What’s in my bag #2

November 29, 2015


I’m loving this little bag I recently got from Warehouse – honestly I’ve used it everyday since it became mine, obsessed much?! I don’t usually opt for small bags on a daily bases, mainly because you can’t get much more than the essentials. However, recently I’ve been enjoying the freedom of having a small bag and not needing to carry my ipad around for work means I can opt for the smaller bag daily. I guess this is an updated “what essentials are in my bag” post.

In my bag we have my Vivienne Westwood purse, my iphone in it’s pretty casehut case, my snazzy new compact foundation, the all important lippie and lip balm, hand cream, oyster card (can’t get fair without that!), ipod to listen to some music while on the move.

Jord Wood Watches

November 22, 2015

His & Hers –

Dave and I have teamed up with Jord, to share with you their amazing wooden watches. These watches are so unique and beautiful, I picked the Fieldcrest and Dave opted for the 94A, we both picked them in dark sandalwood, honestly we didn’t mean to get matchy matchy on ya’ll.
These watches get a lot of attention when wearing them, I guess the unique factor of a wooden watch is something to talk about – I’ve had people asking me about my watch while on the tube and if you’ve ever been to London, you know people don’t talk to each other on the tube!! These watches make the perfect finishing touch to any outfit, why not take a look at there selection here? With the holiday’s creeping ever closer, it would make the perfect gift for someone special or even a little present to yourself ;-)
For Dave’s look, he went dapper for ya’ll, donning his crisp white granddad collared shirt, dark camel blazer (again, we didn’t mean to coordinate, honestly) skinny chinos and desert boots. I really love how Dave’s outfit came together, I feel the deep camel blazer off sets the watch beautiful. 
jord_0001jord_002jord_042jord_035For my look I’m wearing my new vintage dress, adding my camel coat for a classic look.  I wanted simple accessories to let the watch do the talking, I opting for this burgundy clutch bag and new vintage loafers.jord_010What I’m wearing –

Walking With Dinosaurs

November 18, 2015

amy_crystal_palace_058 amy_crystal_palace_006amy_crystal_palace_018 Last week Dave and I went for a walk in Crystal Palace and went on the hunt for dinosaurs! It was a rare mid week day off for us both and took full advantage of this, it was made even better by the lovely autumnal weather. This was our first visit to Crystal Palace park, it’s a such a surreal place, wandering around the lake and you stumble upon different dinosaurs. Coco also had a blast walking around and exploring this new park and meeting lots of cute pups along the way.
I wore some favorite classics, this camel coat is now a year old but still going strong, so glad Dave pointed it out to me last year! This tartan dress from the lovelies over at Tallulah’s Threads is a firm favorite and gets lots of complements each wear :-) then my navy satchel and loafers completed the look.

Retro Denim

November 14, 2015


I gave ya’ll a sneaky look at this denim dress in my video post but here it is in all it’s glory! I’m really pleased with the bits I picked up at Rokit Vintage, they work great combined together and can see them blending perfectly into my wardrobe individually.


I shortened the dress and made it into a midi length instead of the maxi length it came – maxi’s just doesn’t suit me and my hips one bit. As I’m still diggin’ the 70’s retro vibe this outfit is giving me all of these feels, from the silhouette of the dress, the neckerchief and ankle boots all conger up a romantic 70’s nostalgia to me. I feel this dress will see me through AW and right into SS16! I can just picture wearing it with sandals in tan leather and with a straw fedora!

My Christmas Wish List

November 12, 2015


Heres a little post filled with thing I’m wishing I could afford to buy, some of the more affordable things may make their way into my wardrobe as treats to myself this autumn, but the bigger items are on my Christmas wish list!
It feels crazy talking about Christmas in November but as I work in retail, I’m actually late to the party (I know it’s cray cray, right!?). For the last two weeks it’s been all about installing Christmas windows, decorating trees and wrapping fake presents – by the time I wrap my gifts I’ll be a pro!
As family and friends are asking me what I’d like I thought I’d create my dream Christmas wish list and generally autumn wants… Like last year I will come up with a couple of gift guide for you as it was so popular last time, but for now what items are on you’re Christmas wish list?


wishlist_07Benefit – life of the party is the perfect stocking fill gift, it has all the essentials any girl could want!

wishlist_08The cutest key ring I’ve ever seen, I love a bit of Lulu Guinness (my Mother brought me an umbrella for my birthday and I love it!). Also my lipstick of choice is Chanel, it’s defiantly treat lipstick but a well worth it treat – I’d happily forgo buying a new dress for this lipstick!wishlist_09This ridiculously cute coin purse from Whistles would make the perfect stocking filler!
wishlist_05This coat is such a beaut, I just can’t get over how much I’d love to own it!wishlist_04Alas that coat is a little (ALOT) outta my price range so to jazz up existing coats I’m loving this scarf.

wishlist_06Another item I’m really lusting after is baseball meets 70’s style t-shirts like this one from Urban.


I’m currently loving and lusting after these little brogue style ankle boots  and I also think these velvet booties would be great for the party seasons.

Now onto the party season and this furry bag is to die for – heart eyes all over this!


This velvet swing dress has a gothic meets 70’s vibe and I am digging it!



This midi dress could see me through the party season and into spring summer, it’s oh so pretty!

I better had stop before I get carried away and my bank account gets drained! If any friends or family are reading, feel free to purchase any of these as my Christmas present ;-) I will be sharing more gift guides for the holiday season soon!
