It’s A Wrap or is it a Poncho?

Browsing through the Zara website, I found this lovely go to item, and now I’m totally in love with this poncho/wrap.  I love the earthy colours; you can do a lot with this, throw it on over a pair of skinny jeans and a chunky turtle neck, add a pair of Minnetonka knee-high fringe boots, and you’re off to the races! At $49.90, the price isn’t bad either.

Available here.

Stylish Shaggy Wear…

October is really and truly here!  This morning it was 35 degrees, but thank goodness it got up to 55.  I’m more of a summer 90 degrees person myself, but I don’t mind this part of autumn, where the air is crisp and the sun is shining brightly.  October is layering month and if you’re looking for something funky to dress up those jeans and your heels, this shaggy cardigan jacket is a must have.

I bought this shaggy jacket a couple of months ago for exactly this time of year, lightweight, stylish but warm and cozy at the same time. I love it because it has a 70’s vibe to it and I love clothing from that era. I purchased this one from eBay where I buy a lot of my things, because I’m sure to find unusual and quirky items, which makes me stand out from the crowd.  I’ve had so many compliments on this jacket, I’m thinking of buying another in black!

Available here.

Tradesy!

I only heard about this resale site just this morning.  Since I’ve been out of the blogging loop for a while, I’m not even sure when it came into existence, well I’m glad I know now!! What is Tradesy you ask? Tradesy makes resale fast, simple and stylish; request a shipping kit, snap a few photos, Tradesy will enhance your image to make it look stunning, name a price (or they’ll suggest one if you need help) then use the pre-addressed shipping kit to send your items to them.  Once sold, items arrive in a Net-a-Porter worthy box to their excited new owner.

Tradesy takes 9% of the proceeds, and the rest is yours.  As a buyer, there’s also a money back guarantee, if your new items aren’t up to par!  You can also buy pre-loved and new clothing and accessories from Zara to Chanel to Hermes, just type in your desired brand name and the world is your oyster.

Tradesy seems to have a pretty large inventory for you to choose from.  If you’re looking for a new way to sell that Chloe Marnie bag, that’s been sitting on your eBay site forever, and hasn’t sold, Tradesy just might be the way to move it.

Happy shopping Darlings!

Too Late Marimekko…

Banana Republic & Marimekko Polka Dot Dress #bananarepublic #shopping, banana republic, Banana Republic & Marimekko, Marimekko Well guess who overslept and woke up at a 7:00 a.m. to try to snag that gorgeous Marimekko skirt from Banana Republic, only to find out that the sale was open to card holders (which I’m one) 2 days early, and that it was the first item to go!!!!  This is what happens when you have too many things going on at the same time!! I need an assistant… Stat!

I was able to snag the strapless dress, which if I like it, will become my Saturday running errands dress.  For all of you who were able to grab the skirt… Congrats!!  I do have several skirts in the same style as the Marimekko skirt, so I’m not too crushed about it.  Apparently it’s also in stores, but I really don’t have time to run around looking for it.

Will Spring Ever Get Here?

In Daily Musings on May 8, 2013 at 10:39 am

Summer White

Well Darlings, Spring  has left us once again; it has been a rainy and dreary 3 days here in Washington, DC, the sun has once again disappeared.  Apparently this is the 2nd coldest Spring on record, and right now this spring is heading towards being the coldest.  It was slighter warmer this time in 1975! It makes me wonder what this summer is going to be like… Will there be one?

The above image was found on Pinterest; I thought she looked so elegant, with her white dress and nude shoes… very summer.  I also think the perforated snake-skin Piccadilly wedge by Belstaff {love the wood panel} below, would also be gorgeous with this dress.  Hopefully we’ll all be wearing our spring/summer niceties very soon; if this weather ever changes!

Happy Wednesday, Have yourselves a beautiful day!

Monday Musings!

A Monday Muse

Happy Monday Luvvies! Isn’t time flying! Already it’s the first week of May; very soon, we’re going to blink and it’ll be Memorial weekend, are you ready?  It’s the Spring bank holiday in the UK, so the family back home have the day off {lucky them!}.  I hope you had a fabulous weekend.

My weekend was spent donating clothing and thrifting.  It was time to clean out my closets, and get rid of things I know I’ll never ever wear again; remember one woman’s cast offs is another women’s treasure.  It takes me a really long time to donate my clothes, because I’ve donated items in the past, and then a year later, gone to look for that particular item to style it a certain way, because I was inspired by something I saw in a magazine, only to realize I no longer have it!  I did pick up a few goodies, of which, I did not have time to take photos of; I’ll try to post something for you soon.  I’m truly addicted to vintage shopping, at least I know, no one else will be wearing what I’ve bought!

Wishing you a fantastic week, see you soon!

A Gorgeous Wednesday…

In Daily Musings on May 1, 2013 at 5:19 pm

Evy Shoes

Hi darlings, it’s an absolutely beautiful day, with an amazingly blue sky, and not a cloud to be found.   After 3 days of dark heavy clouds and the pitter patter of rain, it was a relief to wake up this morning, to see sunlight streaming through my living room.  I have a small crystal ball hanging in the window, so I was welcomed to a glorious rainbow spectrum, swirling around the room… Lovely!

The photo above, of the  Zara shoes, I mentioned in last week’s post, “Zara Spring Things” was taken by the lovely Evy, who is one of my favourite Instagram friends, and also a very new blogger over at FashionistaOver40.  Evy has the most amazing and elegant style, with a fashion stylist eye for detail, and is also a true shopaholic like myself.  Please take some time to stop by her blog, and show her some blogger love.

We’re half way to the weekend, and the weather is supposed to hold up between now and then, we’ll see!  Wishing you the most Fabulous Wednesday.

TopShop Does It Again!

In Daily Musings on April 29, 2013 at 12:04 pm

Top Shop Jacket

Happy Monday Luvvies! After a glorious sun filled Saturday, we steadily went down hill from there. Today is cloudy and rainy, but nevertheless, it’s an amazing Monday.  My sister scored this gorgeous Asian inspired jacket at TopShop last week.  Nothing beats the original TopShop flagship store in Oxford Street, London.

I remember going to TopShop as a teenager many moons ago, using my well-earned pocket-money to buy the latest trends.  Even now, TopShop is always on my radar when I go back home to London, because I’m sure to find a few pieces of unusual clothing/accessories to bring back.  What I love about TopShop is they do not repeat anything, once it’s gone, it’s gone!

I’ve visited TopShop in NYC , but in my opinion, they’ve been unable to replicate the vibe of the Oxford Street store.  Beautiful clothes though.

I’d love to wish you the most Fabulous and Productive week, see you soon
