Buy It: ‘I’m Kind Of A Big Deal On My Blog’ T-Shirt

Next blog t shirt Buy It: Im Kind Of A Big Deal On My Blog T Shirt %tag

Yesterday I went shopping with The Apartment at Next, they kindly let me snag a few goodies for London Fashion Week, and I stumbled across this beauty of a t-shirt.

There have been a lot of blog related slogan t-shirts done in the past, do you remember Man Repeller wearing American Apparel’s ‘All Blogs Post The Same Stuff’? Well I think I have found the beauty of a t-shirt that every blogger needs to wear this London Fashion Week from Next - ‘I’m Kind Of A Big Deal On My Blog’ - and the best bit it is only £16, yep it is a bargain.

Not only a bargain it is super fun and comes in two colours – navy or ecru, and trust me you will be surprised with how great it feels and I just love the mirrored foil print detailing.

This isn’t the only great slogan t-shirt that Next has to offer fashionistas looking for a cute addition to their LFW wardrobe – I also love their sequinned ‘Fashion’ tee with chiffon panels and the camouflaged ‘Hey’ grey T-shirt.

Wardrobe Essentials: Iris & Ink SS14 Collection

IRIS INK SS14 Wardrobe Essentials: Iris & Ink SS14 Collection %tag

I am a lover of high quality basics, they fill in the gaps of any woman’s wardrobe, and The Outnet’s in-house label, Iris & Ink is one of favourites to pick up a great jumper, shirt and leather skirt. It is basically a line filled with wardrobe essentials and for spring/summer 2014 the collection has exploded and is its biggest ever, which is good news for every woman out there.

Everything in the collection is an investment piece from the leather staples such as the pleated skirt to the fashion-forward items like the suede shirt dress that will jazz up anyone’s day, to the essential cashmere jumpers that literally come in every shade of the rainbow to the beautifully tailored trousers and shirts. I am crushing over the whole collection.

The prices are around the high-end high street end, think Whistles, Reiss and Karen Millen, but there are some bargains to be had in the collection as well – I think the straight-leg pants with black piping for £95 is a great addition to any wardrobe, as is the leopard print sweater for £110, and the semi-sheer washed-silk shirt for £98 can be dressed up or down.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a wardrobe filled with gorgeous cashmere sweaters, white shirts, leather skirts and stripy tops.

Are you a fan of The Outnet’s Iris & Ink label?

Shopping: Orla Kiely x Clarks Now Online

Orla kiely clarks 2 Shopping: Orla Kiely x Clarks Now Online %tag

The gorgeously retro Orla Kiely x Clarks collection is now available online and all you really need to decide is whether you are a Matilda, Milly, Maggie, Mary or a Marianne – as each pair from the spring/summer 2014 collection is amazing.

From closed-toe Mary Janes to wedges and vintage-inspired slingbacks, each pair of shoes from this fabulous collection will brighten up your wardrobe and you will be willing summer to come along. My favourites have to be the navy and cream version of the Marianne, which could be easily worn with tights until the weather gets better, and the red Milly slingback Mary Janes flats.

Prices range from £90 for the flats to £120 for the platforms – but seriously who can resist the glossiness of this collection.

Label Loving: Untitled & Co – Statement Sweatshirts

youngmoney Label Loving: Untitled & Co   Statement Sweatshirts %tag

I am a lover of statement sweatshirts – because what’s not to love. They can be easily be paired with near enough anything – from leather skirts to boyfriend jeans, maxi skirts, denim shorts and even with wide leg trousers – sweatshirts really are a versatile addition to any wardrobe.

Whether you are after dressing up or going casual there is a sweatshirt out there for you, there are lots of plain styles that add a subtle sporty edge, but for me it is all about the statement pieces – whether that’s Markus Lupfer’s glittery lips, Simeon Farrar’s adorable animals, Zoe Karssen‘s slogans, or the Kenzo embroidered tiger head.

I have lots of various designs in my wardrobe, but there is always room for more, and currently I totally crushing on Untitled&Co, a label founded by former model Cameron Wilson and fashion student Chloe Sam-Mcgrath. I just love how they mix nostalgic images with humorous slogans, my favourites being ‘Young Money’ pasted across an image of the original 90120 cast, one of my ultimate teenage loves, as well as ‘You Can’t Sit With Us’ from The Craft and even Clueless gets immortalised with a ‘No New Friends’ sweatshirt.

These beauties along with ‘Flawless’ emblazoned across 90′s supermodels, ‘Woke Up Like This’ across Marilyn Monroe’s face, and ‘Haters’ slogan motif across an image of Disney’s The Little Mermaid - are exclusive to Browns for £65 and I literally want them all!!!

Here are some of my favourite statement sweatshirts that are on my wishlist:

Monochrome Magic: Topshop Unique Resort Collection

topshop resort 2 Monochrome Magic: Topshop Unique Resort Collection %tag

Monochrome is by far one of my favourite trends and I am so pleased that season, after season it comes back in one form or another. For resort 2014, Topshop Unique has given the black and white colour palette a refresh with hints of mint and textured materials such as raffia and bonded satin and I love the modern feel of the clean lines and graphic prints.

The capsule line is only 15-pieces but wow I want them all – especially this graphic checkerboard raffia two piece above – wow, wow, wow – how cool is that, probably a bit too cool for me to pull off but I love it all the same.

The collection also has softer pieces with gorgeous Bamboo printed silk dresses, mint green tees and tapered trousers. Plus each piece has been made in Britain – seriously what’s not to love!!!

Are you a fan of Topshop Unique’s first resort collection?
