Topshop Gold Foil Velvet Leggings

I was lucky enough to snap up a pair of these beauties from Topshop last week before they sold out! At only £28.00, they are very reasonably priced and a major statement piece.

I love how they have a velvet feel and a metallic foil look. I’m saving them to wear for my Christmas day outfit but they keep catching my eye, glistening in my wardrobe whenever I open it, tempting me to wear them. They are so funky and sparkly. I must admit, its taking lots of self-control to save them for Christmas Day.

I think these are a fabulous alternative to a dress or skirt and top combination for the festive season. Despite being rather glitzy, they can also be dressed down with a chunky jumper, oversize t-shirt or tunic.

I’ll be wearing these with a cream chunky jumper and my new Christmas boots for my Christmas day outfit. What will you be wearing this Christmas?

Burberry Bliss – A/W 2013 Collection

I was amazed by the Burberry Prorsum Autumn/ Winter 2013 collection.  It’s ultra feminine and chic with lots of sleek tailoring, luxurious fabrics, and prints. Longer lengths were highlighted with an array of pencil skirts, and dresses. The colours ranged from natural shades of cream, nudes,and browns to vivacious reds, blues and black. Metallic belts featured throughout; they were worn on top of beautiful Macs, Coats, and dresses, which created a simple and tailored, yet elaborate look. Animal prints were all the rage, displayed on many garments from both the women and men’s collections. Mixing prints, and fabrics was also a key theme. I particularly loved the heart-shaped print, which we saw on a beautiful dress, blouse and skirt. Mark my words, I can guarantee the iconic heart print will be imitated by many of the high-street labels. Leather was also featured profoundly throughout the collection, with amazing leather Macs, and Skirts showcased. I absolutely adore the snake-skin red leather jacket – it’s so cool, sexy and stylish. Well done Christopher Bailey, this is so exciting!

Here’s some of my favourites from the collection!

I heart this dress, serious envy!

Alice Temperley Favourites Autumn/ Winter 2013

I love the ever lady-like, elegant look of the Alice Temperley autumn/ winter collection 2013. The skater skirts are beautiful, a fantastic cut that can be worn by everyday girls. The delicate palette of nude and warm hues is really classic, and the use of metallic and deep blues give a really glamorous feel. I love the dresses, cropped trousers, Jacquard and ornate prints. Alice Temperley is a real winner in my book for chic and refined style, which can be worn by women everywhere.
