Boohoo Fashion Resolutions

Originally posted on The Flower That Blooms:
At the beginning of January we were contacted by Boohoo and asked if we would like to collaborate on a resolutions post. Every year the majority of people make resolutions they can’t keep, so Boohoo decided to give bloggers the chance to make a resolution they’d hopefully stick to! They kindly gifted us an item each that we wouldn’t normally go for but wanted to try and style. So here are the pieces we chose, let’s hope we can stick to this resolution! Rachel: Lara High Rise Skinny Jeans I’ve always been a fan of patterned trousers but I’ve never been brave enough to buy myself a pair. This was the perfect opportunity to get myself some and try something new, finally! I love the red and black check design, they’re also high waisted which is something I like my trousers to be. I’d say the material makes them feel more like thin trousers than jeans but regardless of this I love them! I styled the trousers with a black cropped…

Thrifting Haul: Anachronistic Picnic

Originally posted on mailbox mermaid:
I have a secret daydream of living in a little house with a vast, verdant garden in an utterly nonexistent, romanticized land and era where my days spend my days poring over novels, walking through slightly-wild rosebushes, and drinking tea by an abandoned fountain in the late afternoon (and also probably eating cake and strawberries, because why not). This ridiculous, saccharine fantasy recently enveloped me while I was–of all places–lost in the middle of countless racks of color-coded clothes at the Goodwill Store. And why? Because, friends, I found the dress of my dreams: or maybe I should say that it found me? (No, I definitely found it: let’s not make this weirder than it already is.) Absolutely every detail of this dress delights me. The neckline pairs perfectly with my grandmother’s pearls (appropriately)–or, if I had one, perhaps a cameo brooch. There’s no tag or maker’s mark on this dress, and the way in which it’s stitched suggests that it was probably handmade, making it even more charming! You know what I like, though? Really nice fitted…

Little Ondine Nail Polish: An Odourless + Peelable Favourite!

Originally posted on Chronic Pain Cockney – The Little Things:
?? I always think it’s a good sign when a blogger reviews a product line for the first time then continues purchasing & using the products afterwards. I have used Little Ondine nail polishes many times since my first post & I’m wearing a newly purchased shade right now, I thought I’d take the opportunity to show it you guys 😊. ??? ? The navy blue shade is called Jubilee and the base & top is Secret. But first things first; here are the reasons I have become obsessed with this brand: The formula is totally odourless! This is a huge deal for people like me who live with Chronic Daily Migraine; most of us are sensitive to fragrances and they can actually trigger physical pain. It’s peelable. When you want to change colour you can literally peel it off, usually in one whole nail shaped piece! These polishes contain no chemicals. This isn’t usually a deal breaker for me but if a chemical free…

Accessory Obsession

Originally posted on Chique Duluxe:
Hi loves,  So, I haven’t kept up with the blog as much as I’d like to, as most of you know the boif came home from his trip in Africa to come home and celebrate my birthday (which was ever so sweet of him) so I’ve basically been living under a rock since he got home! So much has been happening! I was recently signed to an agency (FINALLY) so my schedule has been jam packed! I feel like I have so much stuff to blog about I don’t even know where to start! I’ve been wanting to do an accessories blog for quite some time, and wanted to share my favorite outfit essentials..so without further adieu! BAG  I’ve been semi obsessed with collecting purses, especially little cross body bags like the one featured. This was an UNBELIEVABLE find! I found it online on a website called Shein.com and the price? only $20. I mean really, this is a freaking steal! This makes for a perfect night-out-bag, because the size is just…

What we can learn from Kate Middleton and Amal Clooney

Originally posted on Vogue & Dreams:
There is no sense in denying it; everyone is a little obsessed with Kate Middleton and Amal Clooney. Whether you love them for their sense of style, their public image or the fact that they give you major #relationshipgoals, you can’t deny that you don’t just love them a little bit. I know that I have not hidden my admiration for both women. I feel that they are both good role models, as well as stylish. I feel that we can learn a lot from these two women, if we sit down and think of the ways in which they make our world a beautiful place – both literally and figuratively. Dress classy and simple When looking at Kate and Amal, there are similarities in their style. Both women dress very simple, yet incredibly elegant. Both woman opt for timeless looks and pieces, hence why they are highly regarded in the fashion world. Their styles are not frou-frou at all, yet they are not boring or easy to forget. They make…

NYFW Recap #4 of 4 – Raquel Allegra SS16 Presentation

Originally posted on letsgetfisico:
The last show of the week that I was able to go to was the Raquel Allegra SS16 Presentation. This presentation was located at the Industria Superstudios again, but this time in a more spacious studio. Although it was Raquel Allegra‘s first NYFW show, she presented with the quality of a seasoned-designer. Her pieces for SS16 carried a vintage theme with splashes of tie-dye prints. Almost every outfit composed of deconstructed layers and fabrics of silk and linen. The models were circled around an original-designed mandala by Briana Sophia Young, which centered the studio, and the colors of the mandala blended perfectly with the SS16 line. The bright tie-dye hues made the room feel alive and added energy to the crowd. Of attendance was actress Marisa Tomei. I was able to snap a picture of her with the star of the show, designer Raquel Allegra. Below are some pictures of the presentation! Click an image to see images in a slideshow. That wraps up my NYFW recap series! I look forward to next year’s NYFW…

Outfit of the (Yester)Day: Nancy Drew Meets the Creatures of the Deep

Originally posted on mailbox mermaid:
My everyday style ultimately alternates between two looks: old-style “girl detective” and actual mermaid. Sometimes I fawn over vintage-inspired dresses and midi skirts, while other times I show off my island origins by wearing lots of shell and pearl jewelry. (I’m always so surprised that more Mainlanders don’t wear shell earrings!) It’s very rare that these two looks intersect–but when a slightly colder morning inspired me to strike new territory by adding a navy cardigan to one of my favorite dresses, my beautiful glass jellyfish necklace seemed the perfect way of tying my various aesthetics together. After all, there’s no place on Earth that has as many mysteries as the sea! (Important note: no, that’s not a real jellyfish! It’s crafted entirely from glass by an extremely talented artist. Can you even imagine what kind of skill that must take?) This dress (made by Sunny Girl and purchased through my old favorite Modcloth!) has been one of the most versatile and long-lasting pieces I’ve ever added to my wardrobe. It’s seen me through my first day…

8 miles

Originally posted on It Started in Oxford:
We landed in London Heathrow and spent the next hour and a half on the Piccadilly line to get to Delfina’s house in Highbury & Islington. Although exhausted from our 5am start, we managed to hold a conversation with an elderly Australian couple for a whole 9 stops. I learnt that they had recently bought a house in Richmond, swapped summers between the UK and Australia, and loved my ignorance regarding illogical Australian phrases like “How you going?”. We finally got to Delfina’s, showered, and swiftly made our way to a nearby cafe called Fink’s Salt & Sweet which is everything I need in a cafe, complete with Victorian packaging vibes. The weather was cool compared to Berlin and we felt like walking, so we went towards the canal via Clissold Park. The best part was the deer, and the goats were pretty cute. There was also a greenhouse with exotic butterflies in a geodesic dome but it was closed that one day we were there. Always nice to have animals…
