Current Wishlist: & Other Stories Shoes

I have two high street weaknesses: COS + & Other Stories. It's not wonder both are under Sweden-based Hennes & Mauritz (H&M). & Other Stories Shoes are a mixture of classic, chic and unique. They also have a large array of nice Nike designs for tomboys like me. 

I'm absolutely drooling over these shoes! The double strap leather pumps remind me of Valentinos'. 

Get Wraparound Strap Sandals (here), Flat Satin Sandals (here) + Double Strap Leather Pumps (here).

Long Live Peplums

You'll be seeing a lot of this D.I.Y Pompom Purse, it seems!
Every now and again a fashion craze comes about that somehow becomes a fashion staple. I remember buying this Peplum Blouse two years ago from ASOS, thinking it was a trendy piece that I could only wear for that season. Low and behold several seasons later, peplums are somehow still in fashion rotation!

I've gained a couple of pounds over the last year, and peplum blouses help to hide that extra bulge. Thank God for my PT though, I soon won't be needing Peplums to hide anything... in the meantime: Love Live Peplums! I hope you had a fabulous Easter Weekend! I certainly did. 6 weeks closer to my wedding and doing last minute changes here and there, God certainly is GOOD!

Here are a couple of Peplum blouses and skirts that I love at the moment:

Construction Days

The weather in Edinburgh has been amazing lately. It may not be as warm as I'd like; however, the sunshine is just what I need. I love The City Center in Edinburgh with it's great scenery and bubbly vibes. With the Trams coming up soon, I know it will be even more busy + accessible. Like Nice, France in the Summer!

You know you have a little room in your closet, for a clutch that speaks louder than your other bags? Make room and welcome this new clutch with open arms!

Yellow Brick Lane

Hello everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I spent Saturday Morning, going through my clothing and accessories to let go of items I can no longer fit, never wore or was an impulse buy (I'll put some items online God willing by the weekend). I also packed away winter clothing, my wardrobe looks soooo much better! It's safe to say Spring is here!!! Today's weather is so beautiful!!
Outfit Details:
Vintage Jacket like this (here)
Gap Skinny Trousers
Mac Lipstick (here)
ZFSowho Bangles (here)
Christian Louboutin Pigalles 85 (Sold Out) Similar (here) + (here)
Vintage Salvatore Shoulder Bag similar (here) + (here)

I bought this Vintage Peplum Brocade Jacket about two years ago at a Vintage Sale in Leeds. It was love at first sight. I paid £18.00, and it was an impulse buy; however, it's an item I will probably never get rid of. I've gained a couple of pounds since then so it fits a bit tight but in two months or so it will be just perfect again! Gosh, how I miss being 24 and eating whatever I wanted and not gaining weight. Here comes the 30's!!!
