Peg Leg!

In my last post I gave a little glimpse of some of my recent outfits but I figured I should probably go into a bit more detail on the Lace Trousers from I'm still waiting for one of the plus size retailers to make a pajama suit but in the mean time I'll continue my obsession with printed peg-leg trousers. These lace ones are from the So Fabulous range at Very and are an amazing fit. The waist is elasticated (yep - score!) and the fit around the leg is perfect. I prefer a skinny leg as wider leg trousers tend to make people look bigger than they actually are whereas these show off your shape perfectly. I paired these with a beautiful new gem tee from Topshop, gold flats from Evans and my Issey Miyake blazer.

Oh hi Shiny face!

Blazer: Issey Miyake
T-shirt: Topshop
Shoes: Evans
Bag: Louis Vuitton

Neon necklace: H'n'M
Pyramid necklace: Urban Outfitters

You can't really tell but I've had my hair highlighted a bit more too. It's a lot blonder in real life and I'm still getting used to it. Also, some very exciting news; I'll be in the Look magazine 'My Style File' feature on Tuesday (30th) so please do go out and grab a copy!

Statement Necklaces

Seems I've gained a few new followers so hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of blogging (again!).

I just wanted to bring to everyone's attention some of the statement pieces that have landed on I've been well and truly addicted to the beautiful statement necklaces that have been hitting the high street recently. First there was the diamante/neon number from H'n'M, then the green emerald beauty from Zara and now I'm predicting these gems to fly off the shelves too.

Accessorize is one of my fav jewellery haunts and you're bound to find a stunning piece to brighten up any autumnal outfit - just take a look below.

My favourite piece has to be the Elizabeth Regal necklace as I just love the tone of green on the stones. All the above are available from now.
