Nothing like new additions to your jewellery collection. What makes it even more special is your friends gifting them to you and they know what you’d like!! Totally in love right now.
The ring and leather wrap-around bracelet is from Juicy Couture. Now this brand is quite controversial where some people call it “chavy” (non-english people please google the word :P) BUT!! In JC’s defence I would say I for one love most of their jewellery, may be not all of it but all the ones I’ve bought myself and I have been gifted I just LOVE them. Plus the pieces I’ve got don’t have any OTT branding on them so they’re great pieces and ones to keep! Yeah if you’re going to wear a JC tracksuit and UGG boots then I’m sorry but that would be classed as “chavy”. But you have to make sure you wear the brand the right way. FYI! you can never wear Paul’s Boutique the “right” way. That brand is “chavtastic” as it’s best! I think I’ve over done the word “chavy” in this post.
My bestie knows what works for me! 😉
If you’ve got cash to splash then you have designer options like Hermés, Chloe, Celine and Cartier etc. I have spotted the Hermés cuff bracelets quite a lot and it is on my wish list!
Check out a few I’ve spotted.
What arm candy have you been sporting lately? Do share! Till the next one xxxx
I love piling up my accessories but not to the extent of looking like I’m running away with all my jewellery! Loving the chunky bracelets and range of ethnic rings I got from my recent holiday to Pakistan! Pile it up ladies!!
A woman who’s style I really love and admire is Kate Beckinsale. She carries herself so well and I’ve hardly ever seen her in a fashion disaster. She’s such a babe and looks amazing in whatever she wears. Check her out wearing this on-trend one shoulder jumpsuit and I love this deep fuchsia colour! She accessorised it with just the right amount of accessories and minimal make up. I think I should give credit to her stylist as well who probably went through several outfit changes before deciding on this winner. A job well done! Definitely brightened up the 2012 Independent Spirit Awards.
I was just going to end this post with her looking super hot but then decided why not do a whole feature focussing on jumpsuits?! If you’re looking to copy her style this summer, then I’ve got a selection for you. You don’t need to go crazy on the printed jumpsuits, a solid colour looks just fine as it’s like a blank canvas and you can play around with chunky jewellery, accessories and shoes! O the shoes…
This one comes in 3 different colours. Hurry up and get your hands on this jumpsuit as it’s selling out fast! I love the ruffle detail and the back has a criss cross design plus the silky material gives it a very ethereal look. Click hereto get yours.
A short jumpsuit but a very cute number. If you’re petite (like moi!) and always have to go through a million shops before you find the right size or haggle someone to alter yours, then this short version is the perfect one for you. The canary yellow colour, the net sleeves and the bow (its HUGE but does not look out of place) make it a very key part of your summer wardrobe. Imagine wearing it with some flip flops, a straw hat, peppermint nails and some frappes. O how lovely dah-ling! 😛 I can ramble on but hey! if you want to buy this jumpsuit, then click here.
This red jumpsuits looks slightly more formal than the rest. The cut is very straight and structured. It would suit someone who’s going for a very sharp and less fussy look. Unlike the frills or bows, this one has a one-shoulder detail and that is all it would need. All it needs is a chunky necklace, a cocktail ring, and a clutch to finish the look. You can either play around with the red and black combo or be a bit more daring and add some multicoloured accessories to the look. It comes in two colours, choose yours here.
I really love this slinky jumpsuit by Halston Heritage. It is a great and effortless look for a night out. Fuss free and manageable. The Berry colour is just right too. To shop yours, click here. With these monotone solid colours, you can bring out the attire with your choice of accessories. I love sites like ASOS and Net-A-Porter that have everything in one place nicely categorised so you can easily choose and match your outfit. With jumpsuits like these, you need some chunky bracelets that stand out and you don’t need to pile them on like there’s no tomorrow. One or two would do.

So ladies, you don’t need any more inspiration. A word of advice: Jumpsuits can be very flattering and Unflattering at the same time so make sure the one you choose fits you well and does not cling on to all the wrong places. If it’s not for you then don’t wear or buy it! Some trends are better left alone.
Shivering my way through this ruthless cold and snow makes me wish I was standing underneath the scorching sun. But come summer time, I’d be wishing the opposite. With designers and high street brands enticing us towards their Spring Summer 2012 collections, there is plenty to choose from the sales before forking out for the full priced stuff. I can be such a “cheapster” sometimes but I just love a good bargain AND even more when I’m getting something that will see me through the whole year and beyond!
So if you are one of those women who thinks ahead and is gearing up for Summers then I have found some bargains that you would love!
Pastels, bright palettes and nudes are the rhythm of SS2012. I think colour should be part of your wardrobe throughout the year! Especially in a cold and miserable weather like right now!
Anyway enough whining about the weather and back to what I have in store for you today.
So, I have picked out random pieces from different high street brands that would fit well in your wardrobe and that are quite versatile and interchangeable with other pieces from your wardrobe.

Tomorrow, starting at 1PM, in Riverbank Plaza at Vauxhall, London, will be the Asiana Bridal Fashion Show with shows starting from 1PM onwards and loads of designers showcasing their designs.

Being one of the dressers at the show, the rehearsals today were amazing with lots of high energy and amazing people to work with. This past week has been quite busy for me. But, I will be back with all the latest in fashion in the next couple of days. Till then, enjoy this sneak peak! 😉 xx
An instant way to uplift your wardrobe or drab old t-shirts and jumpers is by getting statement necklaces that double up as collars. It has happened numerous times where I have worn such necklaces on top of plain tops/dresses/jumpers and people have mistaken them for a new outfit. HAH!
Places where I have found such treasures is ASOS, H&M, House of Fraser, TopShop and just scouring the web. A while ago I did a feature on statement necklaces and the link is as follows:
