Three Cheers For Pompoms

Three Cheers For Pompoms

OK, so technically I’m not talking about cheerleading fashion, but I couldn’t resist the reference as today’s blog is all about my latest obsession with pompoms. These fluffy little cuties are having a moment right now, you can find them on shoes, handbags, gorgeous maxi dresses and tops, as well as on jewellery, and I seriously can’t get enough. 

So when I’m obsessed, literally all the pompoms on Asos are in my saved items, I have to share my obsession with you guys. I think top of my purchase list has to be these beautifully, fun and slightly crazy pompom sandals from Asos, not only does it have the fluffy factor x3 but they also have holographic detailing, and a low heel, which means I will probably wear them all the time.

Shopping: My Sale Picks For A Great Winter Coat

Shopping: My Sale Picks For A Great Winter Coat

I’m a coat hoarder, I love wrapping up warm and as a result my wardrobe has become packed filled with coats of all varieties – from my new fav, the Next pink check beauty **which FYI is in the sale at £35** that has a Clueless vibe about it, to a Paddington Bear duffle that is the just so cosy teamed with a chunky jumper, and even the most unflattering puffa jacket that once upon a time I thought were cool, which now I realise were never cool and still can’t seem to part with.

Boohoo Wrap Up Dinner

AW11 Press Day: Boohoo.com – 60s Pop Meets 70s Country Girl

For me I love the idea of online shopping, and don’t get me wrong I do buy online, but only once I have checked out the real thing or trust the source, if you know what I mean. I think it is because there is so much choice in terms of websites, and then pages and pages of products on the sites, you can, and I have literally lost a days work scouting through all the new arrivals. Which is why I was so glad to have the chance to check out Boohoo.com’s autumn/winter collection at its recent press day, as it was nice to see what trends they are bringing to the site.

I think Boohoo have taken all the popular trends for autumn/winter: there were flashes of the 60s with block colour, shift dresses, cute collars and boxy separates; and 70s with a country girl vibe of bohemian long layers *yes the maxi is still going strong*, chunky knits and prints in soft tones, as well as the shaggy faux fur coats in a mixture of colours.

As well as a very cool Luxe Grunge collection, filled with black and animal print for a rock ‘n’ roll look of maxi skirts, oversized separates, sheer fabrics and funky knits. I loved this faux leather shift, with its textured panels and exposed zip detailing to the back.

One of my favourite pieces had to be this red blouse with cut-out panels and lace detailing to the back, my only worry about wearing this though is it is probably a little too cropped to the front. But paired with skinny black jeans this would be a hot look.

What did surprise me about the collection was the accessories, the footwear is filled with cute loafers, chunky boats and healed brogues, I particularly like the tan and black ones with lace tassels, and at such reasonable prices.

The bags also offer a great choice with very ladylike clasp handbags, and if you like a designer copy then you will love this very cute tiny version of the Celine tote.
