Holiday

I am off on holiday tomorrow, hence the fact I have been so rubbish posting this week! I have had a hard time trying to fit my clothes in the suitcase we are taking...you see in my own little way I was trying to save the planet and save some money by sharing a suitcase with my lovely boyfriend...only I forgot that, well I am ME so I packed too much, had to re-pack twice then finally gave up and stayed with the one outfit a day thing! oh hard times!

So the suitcase is so full we have to bring less Swiss Chocolate back with us, which upsets me no end! and I had to really think about what clothes would keep me warm, hence the picture of this lovely coat by Paul Smith. I was trying to pack for warmth, style and all round elegance...and ended up with warm warm and warm, so I ticked one box anyway!
I did however pack my mac and my biker boots as well as the cutest little hat to keep my ears warm!

As I am away for a nice long weekend (back Monday night) I wont be posting on here for a little while, I am not sure I will make it on here till Wednesday maybe even Thursday because I will have eaten so much chocolate I wont be able to drag myself to my computer!

If your looking for some stylish heaven to take your mind off the fact you wont be getting you fashion fix from me for a week, then head over to my sister Gemma's blog Style Sparkle for that gap you need to fill!

Thank you

see you soon......Tschüss!

Sonia Rykiel



So what if I like a nice sparkly jacket, so do most of us if we admit it! according to my boyfriend this 'game show host' jacket is not very fetching in the fash stakes!

Well I have to disagree...look at those sparkles, how can anyone turn them down???

sequined blazer £945...love it!

Stella McCartney



As I am ALWAYS cold...no really I am! This is the perfect way to stay warm, the thicker the better and if your worried about it making you look like a massive bear...cinch in the waist with a belt but in my opinion a thin one! not the one pictured, unless you have an extremely long body, don't go there!

Tufted Wool Coat £4,765

Maternity Wear

I love the fact that Topshop and many other High Street stores are having their finger on the fashion button for maternity wear too.
The last thing you want to do as a pregnant lady, is put on a dress that makes you look like a boat! really when was flattery pushed aside for the bump!

Embrace your new found curves and get yourself this little sparkly number from Topshop for £45.00 ready for that Christmas party everyone is probably already talking about!!!

High Street Alternative


These Thomas Wylde leather boots are great for your winter style wardrobe....not only do I have a pair very similar! you can bag yourself a pair for a fraction of the price, from Next!

You will see a few posts on here about boots, I seem to have a strong love for them at the moment, I think it is because it's already freezing outside and I like to be warm yet stylish. These hit the right spot!

The Coatigan


Well ladies, it's that time of year again. Falling temperatures (and leaves) signify that we must accept that any hope of a Summer is gone. It's also the time that many of us come to realise that the power-shouldered jackets we've been sporting of late, just won't cut it for the harsh weather of winter.

There are lots of fabulous coat options around already, but if you don't feel quite ready to don your winter coat just yet, there is an alternative.

The coatigan - a cardigan that can be worn as a coat (yes, I did make it up! You heard it here first). Although you may have been using cardigans as an Autumn in-between for a while, this year you'll have lots of options for cardigans that are designed to look like a coat.

The above image is in fact a coat that is designed to look like a cardigan, (knitted silk coat by Rocha £2435). It's all about comfort and warmth this season, although if you team your coatigan with some peep-toe boots and you've evened out practicality and style.

Until next time, keep warm and be stylish.
