New Arrival / Fashion Fix: Christopher Kane for Topshop

In animal, bag, christopher kane, fashion fix, leather, new arrival, topshop on September 26, 2009 at 11:36 pm

I am actually in love with this dress!
So the Christopher Kane collection was probably Topshops most hotly anticipated this year
(sorry Kate Moss!)
and of course I had to get my small piece of the action

The collection consisted of his signature photographic animal face prints (this time crocodile)
quite a bit of lace, body con, and jersey, and a whole lotta eyelets

I only managed to get my sticky mitts on the crocodile dress
But I would have had the t-shirt too


I am still lusting after the large leather eyelet bag too (above)

and would probably give my right arm for one of these dresses from his main line:

sigh, oh well!

Hello lovers,
Ive been a bit tardy with my What I Wores this week
So I though I’d do one long post…. again!

Beginning of the week:
Black lace insert top: Topshop
Plain white t-shirt underneath: New Look (probably!)
Leopard print geometric necklace: Asos, a couple of years ago about £2
Bog Standard Jeans: New Look
Cute Brown Buckle Shoes: Blowfish (in the sale at office)
Black Biker Bag: Angel Jackson

At some point in the middle of the week:
Cameo Necklace: Tarina Tarantino
Denim Pinafore Dress: New look (sale)
Galaxy print waterfall cardigan: ASOS (love it, so comfy and versatile)
Black Bleach Leggings : New Look
Black Biker Bag: Angel Jackson
Studded Worker Boots: Asos

I love these boots, uber comfy and practical, and I just love the stud detailing
Had a bit of trouble getting them
first of all they were too big, and when I got the right size they had a stud missing
but asos were really good at sorting it all out for me


Today:
Floral Playsuit: Topshop (sale £20)
Purple/Blue Leopard print cardigan: H&M (kinda tinkywinky coloured)
Stirrup leggings: Topshop (my absolute fave, have two pairs)
Quilted leather Hello Kitty Bag: Victoria Couture (sale on spoiledbrat.com reduced from £150!)
Italian Blue Leather Flat Slingbacks: My Work (sale £9.99 from £59.99)

I think its been quite a good week of outfits if I do say so myself

What Milly Wore: Trying out new clothes!

In angel jackson, ash, bag, converse, handbag, leather, lumberjack shirt, river island, tkmaxx, topshop, what milly wore on September 6, 2009 at 10:05 pm

This is Sundays what I wore post
Fancied trying out some of my new bits and pieces,
this is kinda my worker boots outfit,
without the worker boots!

Yellow and black lumberjack shirt: H&M (lovely, cosy and lined)
Aztec print t-shirt: Topshop (sale)
Bleached skinny jeans: River Island ( have an amazing studded skull on the pocket)
Leather Converse style hi-tops: Ash (worth £125, bought from tkmaxx for £25)
Biker Bag: Angel Jackson (£180)

Ahh couldn’t wait to use this bag,
you may notice it is the exact bag from my blog header!
I’ve been lusting after it for ages
you may also notice from a couple of posts back that I already own it in black
but the black one was second hand off eBay
So it wasn’t quite the same as buying a brand new designer bag for real!

Saved up for a little while,
found there was 30% off on their website!
Just couldn’t resist,
Also got my mum to order me another Angel Jackson bag for my birthday!
(its ages away but couldn’t miss the 30% off)
And I got a free wallet worth £100

Might have to do a dedicated Angel Jackson post soon!

These are my new leather Hi-tops by ASH
I’ve loved their trainers for ages,
but always thought they were a bit overpriced,
When I found these in tkmaxx, I couldnt believe it!
They only had size 4, and I’m a 4.5 so usually end up with a 5
so I wasn’t hopefull, but I tried them on, and they fitted perfectly!

I was so excited I bought two more pairs, satin low tops in red and in yellow!
Not sure whether to crystal them, keep them or sell them yet!

Last but not least
Here is a picture of my foot next to the boys!
it made me chuckle, I’m a 4.5 and he’s an 11!
Im 5ft2 and he’s 6ft!

yay little and large!

night night!

Fashion Fix: Worker Boot Trend

In ASOS, beanie, boots, fashion fix, office, river island, trend, worker boots on September 4, 2009 at 7:13 am
worker boot trend

Hi Guys!

I’m tres excited about the worker boot trend!
The pair in the picture are from ASOS called Clive
I bought them but when they arrived they were too big!
So I have sent them back, and have ordered the smaller size.
I really hope they fit me, because they are AMAZING

TBF there are loads of worker boots around this season,
Office and River Island have good selections
But I just love the studs on the ASOS boot
It’s two trends in one!

If the size 4 in the asos boot doesn’t fit,
I will probably get the ones from office called Marlon,
I tried them on and they are super comfy

I will be wearing them with, beanie hats, Lumberjack shirts (also a massive trend this season, i got mine from H&M) Skinny jeans to tuck in, and a slouchy cardie over the top

Bring on the Autumn!
