In keeping with the Theme

I posted a while ago that Wednesday Addams was going to be my style inspiration for autumn.

Since then i have stumbled upon quite a few pieces that she would love to wear, and the majority of these have been on Very.co.uk and from the Fearne Cotton Range. 

I have never purchased from Very.co.uk before and haven't even looked at the Fearne range, as i had in my head 14 or so would be the largest size.
 It's not - The pieces go up to a 20 which is very very impressive for a celebrity range.

These are the pieces that have made it to my (somewhat huge) wish list...






Fearne Cotton Cobweb Knit Midi Cardigan £27



Fearne Cotton Fringe Shrug £19







I think Wednesday would approve...

Window Shopping : Autumn Icon


Having recently decided that my A/W style inspiration was going to be Wednesday Addams, I decided some shopping was in order.

As pennies are tight (and my husband views things like food and petrol as more important than clothes) all I could really do was Window Shopping (is it still called that when you do it online??)

Having read about a fantastic competition to win £300 of vouchers a month for a year, on zalando.co.uk I thought I would make their site my first stop, and here is my Wednesday inspired outfit...






After finding this dress (black, grey, long, warm - PERFECT FOR AUTUMN) the rest of the outfit just fell into place....

The shoes are just amazing - everyone needs some Jeffrey Campbell shoes and glittery ones are extra special.

I would wear the cape constantly - It would add that 'Addams twist' to absolutely every outfit.

No outfit of mine is complete without a scarf, and one with insects on was the obvious choice. 

 

And here is a visual representation of me in said clothes...





(my scanner didn't pick up my orange insects on the scarf so i attempted to take a picture but to be honest that's not much better)

Its totally life like isn't it ??
( I'm sure you can tell from the picture i haven't picked up colouring pencils since art class and there is a very good reason for that)

 

Who or what is going to be your style inspiration for Autumn/Winter 2011?
Have you entered the Zalando competition - I would love to see your entries

His N Hers

As my graphic tee collection is spiralling out of control (or at least out of my wardrobe onto the floor), I have decided that I am going to change tactic's.

I'm going to buy my hubby tee's that I can BORROW...



(This would be my bad mood tee - for when I'm in a huff)








Those are the first four on my shopping list, and are all from www.streetcasuals.com ~ I'm sure he will appreciate them all.

as usual product names link back to where the product can be purchased.

Pure British Style!

I think that here in the UK we do Autumn fashion amazingly
(could be because of the pants weather it feels autumnal more than it should)

I'm still continuing to try and improve my shoe wardrobe, so here are my are Autumn/Winter picks from Sarenza.co.uk in true BRITISH style.


£269





I think these boots would look fab with these NEW LOOK coloured Jeans and the amazing HENRY HOLLAND crochet scarf

£208.25


If there is any style of shoes associated with the UK it's the BROGUE and I think the colours on these are stunning.

I could see ALEXA CHUNG in these...




£96.05




The designer speaks for it all - BRITISH FASHION ROYALTY


And then there is these.....

£197.50




I was in two minds about posting these as I know they are a love/hate item - me, I love them and really really want a pair to keep my toes warm in winter. I also think they would go brilliantly with the mustard colours that are going to be filling everyone's wardrobes imminently.

Enough said

After a disasterous shopping trip in which i was left feeling about this big (i'm doing tiny fingers), Fashion Hayleys blog on the amazing Gisela Ramirez, and her own attitude with fashion bullies could not have come at a better time.




Gisela Ramirez

This tee speaks for itself - all I need to do now is get it into my wardrobe

Everyone should go follow Hayleys and Giselas blogs for amazing fashion musings



Lydia would love Little Fille

As soon as i saw this Little Fille headband i thought of Beetle Juice.

 Soooo i came up with a look (of sorts, a look without any clothes) that Lydia Deetz would be proud of.



I think everyone should check out the shop which is like a sweet shop for those of you like me who LOVE headbands.

You should also take a trip over to the blog where the most generous giveaway is currently being held

ps: the camera is the Diana Mini from Lomography - Its sooooo pretty. I have been spending ages browsing the site, I have my fingers crossed one day that I own one.

It's beyond embarrassing

What I'm talking about is my shoes selection.....




2 work shoes + 2 fit flops (the comfiest shoe in the world) + 1 pair flats = my shoe collection

 
I practically have one type of shoe - flat,black and comfortable.
And, i don't have nearly enough pairs

I think i have a pair of trainers hiding somewhere and I also thought i had a pair of black wedges (Yay for heels) but i have no idea when i last wore them, or last saw them.

My scarf collection is coming along nicely, and I'm starting to find jewellery in the strangest of places so i obliviously have enough of that, so its onto the SHOES.

I have been on a virtual shopping trip and these are what i want to add to my collection.

A nice mix of height, colour and comfort
