My Style: ASOS Floral Dip-Dye Dress

Fashionista Barbie asos dress 7 My Style: ASOS Floral Dip Dye Dress %tag

Before the fashion craziness of September, my boyfriend and I always try to get away for a mini-break, so last week we headed to Wales for a spot of relaxation at a spa in Anglesey. More to come on the amazing hotel, the treatments and the island, but as I haven’t blogged an outfit post in nearly a month, so I thought I would share with you one of my favourite looks from my holibob.

This floral dip-dye smock dress is from ASOS and I bought it on a whim as it was in the sale, it still is and is only £18, I like the shape and the idea of wearing florals without being too girlie and bright. The thinking was I could wear during the summer with bright accessories and then come winter I could layer up with tights, boots and a chunky cardigan.

For dinner at the hotel one night I decided to wear this beauty paired with my bright orange heels from Marks & Spencer, I got them for a wedding last year and they are super comfortable and I love the pop of colour with the burn-out floral design of the dress. As I don’t have an orange belt, seriously the only colour I don’t own, I went with my trusty flower clasp beauty from Dorothy Perkins as this dress really needs to be nipped in a little otherwise it looks a little unflattering.

Finishing off my look I kept my jewellery simple, mainly because we were away to relax not get dressed up, so I wore my trusty Fossil watch that my mum got me for my birthday and my new favourite piece of arm candy – this cute bow bracelet from Kate Spade.

There is something about this dress that I love, and I think it works against the gorgeous backdrop of Anglesey, as it makes the pop of colours in the flowers and palm trees look even more vibrant.

Are you a fan of floral dresses and would you wear this beautiful dip-dye number?

For iPhone Lovers: The Adorable Moschino Gennarino Bear

Moschinoiphonecover For iPhone Lovers: The Adorable Moschino Gennarino Bear %tag

You may have already seen Anna Dello Russo tweet a piccie of her new iPhone case from Moschino this week but I couldn’t resist sharing the beauty that is simply known as Gennarino, the Moschino mascot bear.

Coming to Moschino boutiques in September this adorable iPhone case will set you back around $75 but come on it is so worth it – I have to admit I am loving my new HTC One X but this beauty makes the iPhone very appealing!!!

I love the brown bear with a red bow – but I am also hearing that iPhone addicts will also be able to spoil their mobiles with either a yellow bear with a blue bow or a pink bear with a green bow – I have to be honest all three sound good to me.

Can’t wait until September to give your iPhone a make-over? Why not try one of these designer beauties:

My Style: I Brightened Up My Weekend With Olivia Rubin For Dorothy Perkins

OliviaRubinMaxi3 My Style: I Brightened Up My Weekend With Olivia Rubin For Dorothy Perkins %tag

This weekend I embraced the sun, granted for most of the weekend it was a little glum but when the sun did shine I was totally dressed for the occasion in my Olivia Rubin for Dorothy Perkins printed maxi dress and peplum top.

On Saturday, the weather wasn’t amazing I am in slight denial I want it to be summer so I can wear all my pretty clothes, so I decided to do just that with this pink and white floral printed maxi dress, which is one of my favourite pieces from the Olivia Rubin for Dorothy Perkins collection.

My beautiful and uber-comfortable maxi was teamed with my adorable Kate Spade New York Armadillo, it’s first outing since I was gifted it at the Kate Spade event I went to a few weeks ago and I am totally in love with it. Finishing off my look is a Barbie pink cardigan from New Look and a stack full of bracelets from Thomas Sabo, Ernest Jones, as well as two I made and my white gold bangle that my Mum got me for my 21st birthday that I just re-discovered in my jewellery box.

Yesterday, I went for a more casual vibe for hanging out with my friends in the garden, while trying to enjoy the rare glimpses of sun. This pink sleeveless bird print top is fast becoming one of my go-to tops, I love the shape, the vibrant print, as well as the exposed back zip, which I stupidly forgot to snap!!!

With the unpredictable weather this top is perfect teamed with jeans, the ones I am wearing here I have only had a few weeks but they are my new favs and they are from Warehouse, they are a little higher in the waist than other high-street jeans and so comfortable – they make me feel and look a little slimming, which is always a good thing.

Because my top is so bright I decided to go neon with my jewellery with my pink, orange and yellow bracelets, teamed with my Thomas Sabo pink bracelet but this time with my new dragonfly charm that I got for my birthday, and finishing up with my neon pink F*** Me I’m Famous Ice-Watch.

Finishing off my look are my Chanel sunglasses, I do love these beauties mainly for the cool chain-arm, but they are a little loose so I am afraid that I am going to damage them, and comfort rules with this outfit so only my bright pink Keds would do.

Beauty: Kate Spade New York Launches Nail Polish

AW12KateSpade1 Beauty: Kate Spade New York Launches Nail Polish %tag

As well as falling in love with Kate Spade New York’s straw bags I was also drawn to the brand’s first nail polish collection inspired by Australian artist Florence Broadhurst. Once again the brand has created the varnishes alongside beauty expert Poppy King, who help with the label’s lipstick line, Supercalifraglipstick, and they work perfectly with the brand’s preppy style.

This limited edition travel set hits Kate Spade NY stores and online this month and comes in a gorgeous summer palette of yellow, blue, orange and pink. As you all know I am a lover of nail varnishes especially of the pink variety, and I love the ‘Watermelon Fingers’ shade, or to you and I that is the flirty watermelon pink shade in the set.

As well as great beachy bright shades perfect for summer, I love that each one is named after Florence Broadhurst’s iconic patterns, so the pale blue is ‘Sea Foam Swirls’, the hot orange is ‘Solar Orange’, and my second favourite the sunny yellow is called ‘Yellow Cockatoo’.

For miniatures they are a little pricey at £25 a set, but if like me you are hoarder of great shades and love a limited edition they these are the perfect addictions to your collection.

Bag Loving: No One Does Wicker Like Kate Spade

AW12KateSpade7 Bag Loving: No One Does Wicker Like Kate Spade %tag

Ever since I found Kate Spade Barbie on eBay I have been obsessed with the brand, in particularly its gorgeous wicker bags, which my Barbie is carrying, and last week I dropped by the Starworks press day and I fell in love with so many pieces.

What I love is the combination of the structured wicker with the colourful leather accents, I love the clutch version, but I really want the Little Nadine in white below, how adorable is this sweet satchel with its leather and chain strap. Now all I need now is a garden party to carry it to!!

As well as the gorgeous bags being on display, select pieces from the autumn/winter 2012 collection were showcased, full of Pan-Am and Mad Men ladylike styling. I just love that large bow detailing on this red coat, and these gorgeous gold button shoes with a block and stiletto heel.

My Barbie: Lastest Addition – Kate Spade New York

katespadebarbie6 My Barbie: Lastest Addition   Kate Spade New York %tag

A few weeks, possible months *time really is getting away from me*, I picked up my biggest bargain on eBay when I bought this amazing Kate Spade New York Barbie. I am a regularly on eBay when it comes to hunting down fashionable Barbie’s but never do I win them at great prices, never do they arrive looking as immaculate as this, and never have I been so excited to receive one, I seriously love her.

I think the reason I got so excited has to be because I love Kate Spade. I have obsessed a lot about her amazing bags, and after visiting the new London store I have to admit that I am saving up for one, I do quite like this gorgeous Night Owl bag or how about a quirky book clutch I love this Romeo & Juliet one.

Kate Spade is a fun brand and her beautiful Barbie is just as playful and she completely reflects the brand’s signature style. I am loving the three-quarter length belted coat in a bold pink and green pattern, teamed with a gorgeous wicker basket bag, chic sunglasses, a beaded necklace and a perfect up-do!

The best bit though has to be the cute white doggie, which is modelled on Kate’s own dog, that she is carry in her Kate Spade tote bag – love the green leather piping.

As well as a Barbie doll the collectible item comes with a certificate and a cute booklet on Kate Spade, and the box comes adorned with a gorgeous illustration on the back. I just LOVE it.

Bag Loving: Kate Spade Royal Plantation Elephant

210766 10150293331878986 10737653985 9572938 5899317 o 500x747 Bag Loving: Kate Spade Royal Plantation Elephant %tag

Among the many things I collect, Barbie’s, cute stationery, Hard Rock Cafe bears, and badges, I also have a shelf full of elephants. So when I saw this cute wicker elephant basket from Kate Spade I was actually giddy with excitement.

The Royal Plantation Elephant Basket isn’t cheap at $325, but come on how delightful is it???

This beauty opens at the top, has a woven safari print lining, leather shoulder straps, and an interior zip pocket so you could use it as a bag. However, I think I would prefer to use it as a flower basket or just another addition to my elephant collection. I also love the Kate Spade New York embossed gold charm.

Simply, this is one cute bag/basket/ornament, please delete as appropriate.
