The Mulberry bag is my ultimate. The kind of bag I desperately want, but can’t really justify spending the amount of money I would normally spend on a holiday or at least 3 months rent (and my rent is cheap!). I can dream though.
A bit belated, but here is my top 10 picks for this week.
Have you seen anything nice this weekend? I had a bit of a Primark binge today (more on that another time!).
I had a lovely chilled New Year’s Eve this year. Just hung out with the bf and our friend playing board games and Just Dance, watching the live Kasabian concert and eating mexican food. Even popped some Bucks Fizz at midnight (£2.29 in Sainsburys – bargain!) Here is what I wore:
Dress: H&M – love this dress, it fits me perfectly!
Necklace: Etsy – can’t remember the exact shop
Belt: River Island (christmas present!)
Tights: Primark I think?
I did wear shoes – just took these pics before I put them on. They were my black suede lace up wedges from New Look.
Did everyone have a good Christmas? I did! Here is what I wore Christmas Day.
I miss having a full length mirror. Wish this one would fit in my room back in Manchester.
50p – Bargain!
Dress: New Look
Shoes: New Look (random fact – they are called Past. I used to work on the shoe department up until a couple of months ago!)
Nails: Models Own – Juicy Jules
I love the print on this dress! And the sparklyness of my nail varnish appeals to my magpie within. I definitely recommend it – just be sure to give it at least a couple of coats. The necklace I originally saw on Charlene from Dainty Dresses. As soon as I saw it I had to have it.
What did you wear?
“A couple falls in love and agrees to meet in six months at the Empire State Building – but will it happen?” IMDB.
An affair to remember, a tragic love story starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. I can’t believe I hadn’t seen this film up until a couple of years ago. I watched it again recently after buying it on dvd. It never fails to make me cry.
So since I love watching old films and looking at the different fashions. I have decided to do a feature on my favourite outfits from this film and find the modern alternatives. Here it goes:
I love Kerr’s evening wear in this film. Lots of gorgeous drapery, ball gowns, diamonds and fur stoles. Shame I don’t really have a need for this type of clothing. Le sigh.
Her coat looks so warm. It would have to be if you were dancing with Cary Grant out on the deck of a boat!
This Topshop coat has the essence of Kerr’s coat, only with a nipped in waist and a bow at the neck which makes it perfect in my eyes!
The closest I could find to a peal bracelet but I think these are pretty cool.
I think this is my favourite outfit in the film. Just so cute and pretty – ideal for the setting.
Blue shirt: Miss Selfridge, Sold out – was featured in Look magazine
Just a modern twist on old classics. Should I do another? What film should I do next?
