Made Well.

So in my eternal hunt for some decent sweaters and cardigans I came across this brand Madewell. A high street store stateside they have some super cute knitwear all for great price points, most being under $100.00. Only problem is they don't ship to the UK. I can only find them on Shopbop who do ship to the UK but they don't have the entire range... Some of my best picks below. If all else fails I will have to ask my uncle to send them for me. 
Jumpers for original. Lol.

Sequins = Happy happy girl

As you all know I have a huge thing for sequins! Day sequins, night sequins, sequins dressed up and sequins dressed down. I love the way sequins used to make me feel so grown up and somehow now remind me of childhood. I love the way the sun reflects on them and the way you can make light dance on any surface. I love the way sequins look at night and for some reason black sequins at night remind me of running by the Arc D' Triomph after a candle lit meal in Paris.(I did that - in sequins) Sequins will turn anyones head in the night. Just like a magic trick they light you up :)
Here I have collated a collection of sequins new and old. Things I like and things I love! And how some of my favourite celebs wear them!I
would post my Christmas party dress (floor length sequins) but it is top secret!!!

Have great day and enjoy the inspiration... xoxo

Whistle while you work.....and play

I am a HUGE whistles fan, I love the style (if not a tad pricey)
I love the way they have a great selection of casual wear, work wear, and evening wear every season. You would be surprised how many high street shops don't! Take for example Topshop Oxford Circus (Shop of mass torture) I was in there the other day, and I don't know if I am slowly falling out of the Topshop target customer but in the 2hrs I was in there I couldn't find any party wear at all!!! well not my sort of party wear anyway or even work wear for that matter and while I am at it I couldn't even find a flaming decent jumper. (Do I sound like a granny yet?? lol)
I have a lot of work wear and casual bits from Whistles it works great for me!
Party frocks still a tad too much averaging at around £250.00 + (Although I did buy an amazing dress for my fashion twins wedding in Seville and it was PERFECT - dress and wedding!!)
Loving the latest drop at are my picks
P.S I want those shoes.....AMAZING!!!!!!!!
