Pro Nailz knuckle dusters- acrylic nails meet gold and bronze!


I love rings, I love nail varnish, I love nail art, Put them together and what do you get? Erm, knuckle dusters which painted acrylic nails as the stones. This isn’t the first strange use of nails we’ve seen, but I simply can’t make my mind up about thees, They are part of the ‘Costume Costume’ exhibition, showcased by the Opulent Projects and created by Islay Taylor, and he used precious materials such as gold plated bronze to hold the coloured nails. I like that they’re being playful and the name ‘Pro Nailz’ is cute, but I just don’t know if I’d want to wear these. perhaps they’re just too busy and if there was less going on I’d be more attracted? I am a huge knuckle duster fan so I think they might grow on me.. I just don’t know. Continue reading

Topshop goes animal crazy for A/W 2011

Normally the term ‘animal crazy’ refers to all types of prints, from fierce looking leopard, to zebra, dalmatian and even snakeskin. This season it’s all about the fluffy animals though as Topshop is dong a rather hardcore line of cuddly looking animal tops, from snuggly sweaters to tight fitting jersye shapes with prints of various animals all over them. I think the rabbit version is my favourite; what do you think? It’s definitely a step up from the traditional Christmas jumper…

Fake Nail Jewellery: Yay or Nay?

>
The girl in the picture looks rather pretty. Simple white vest, light sweeping of bronzer, large silvery looking necklace.. made up of fake nails. Yes, FAKE NAILS. Created by Cheap Monday the fake nail collection includes a selection of necklaces, bracelets and earrings all with fake acrylic nails as the main base. It’s kinda cool, and they’re all clean and unused. I’m just unsure. Don’t we have enough ways of making jewellery without using fake nails? What do you think?

You can buy these pieces at Alex and Chloe, with a necklace $58. Continue reading

Ivory and Orange Colour block coat, £29

It’s hard to think about winter when the sun is making such a welcome appearance but the Dorothy Perkins A/W 11 collection is so lovely you almost want to wear coats. they’ve gone for a seventies bohemian feel, with brightly toned dresses and coats with colour blocking and Peter Pan collars. I like how the collection is crisp and has Autumnal overtones, as full on Winter can be put off for a lot longer.

Tamaris latest shoe collection is super stylish


Tamaris is a brand that I’m not that familiar with, but the more I browse their site, the more I fall in love with their products. I was sent a get the look’ email whcih featured the above, and I can admit the shoes do have a striking similarity- for a much cheaper priecpoint. Sure there will be three subtle differences ( a pre-requistie in creating desogner clones) but I think the shoes sell on their own merit. I like the colour, the large bow and the detailing on the heel and the front.

They stock a nice combo pf pretty ballerina flats and embellished heels and there are lots of styles I have my eye on. Here are a few that stood out for me.

Check out Tamaris here.

French Kiss Vintage will have you reaching for your hair dye (and wallet)

I love the look of this  Vintage 80’s prom dress on ASOS

This 50’s prom dress is also rather divine, and the styling of the shots make the clothes look gorgeous. If only I was a six foot redhead…

The store is curated by Miss Ooh La La who has a fine eye for vintage ladies fashion with a stylish twist. I love her work- and her style- and think this lady is one to watch. Continue reading
