It’s a frocktastic friday

I wear dresses just about everyday, I prefer wearing them over any other item of clothing I own. I find now I’m a busy working mum, a dress, novelty brooch and a fabulous pair of shoes (generally heels) is an easy outfit to put together while i’m wrestling to get the kids out the door to school and me to work in the morning. A -line and swing dresses are my go to style because I bottom heavy and small waisted and they suit me best while accentuating my good bits and hiding my wobbly bits.  I’m also a sucker for a novelty print, so the day dress from Victory parade (made by Limb) ticks all the boxes for me.  Stylish, flattering and a little bit quirky, the perfect dress.  I love the variety of animal prints they have in this dress, from dalmatians, bears, cows, zebras, pandas and foxes.

Shoe of the week

Well those very clever people at Irregular choice have done it again, releasing a range of fabulous shoes with flamingo heels. That’s right the heel is a flamingo and it is swoon worthy!  These are my favourite pair at the moment:

But i’m also in love with these too:

For Christmas my darling sister gave me a fashion fund money box, which was the cutest idea and I have been adding to it every week, but i’m going to have to have to seriously start savings to fund my shoe addiction! Or maybe it would be cheaper to just get therapy, although that wouldn’t be as much fun as a pair of flamingo heels

It’s a frocktastic friday

I love 1940’s styling, so I was besotted when I spotted this gorgeous dress from Hell Bunny courtesy of Unique vintage. Now I work as a consultant and I do alot of sales visits and present at seminars, so i’m always looking for clothes that are professional but still kinda quirky, like me. So I thought this grey plaid dress with it’s faux tie collar and swing a line skirt would be just perfect for work. I find that if I dress up and feel good about  how I look and what i’m wearing it makes me feel confident in my work. qTv86u0VlI_Hell_Bunny_1940s_Style_Grey_Glen_Plaid_Lady_Hay_Swing_Dress

A flamboyance of flamingos

This post is inspired by a recent article on Apartment therapy, a homage of sorts to acknowledge the passing of Donald Featherstone, the creator of the pink plastic flamingo. Apartment therapy featured DIY flamingo inspired projects. My favourite being the taxidermy flamingo, the flamingo sprinkler and the flamingo table piece, fabulous!

So I thought I would feature some of my favourite flamingo buys at the moment. I love the flamngo print hepburn dress from Lady V London, it’s just so pretty! The print is also available in a wide variety of styles.

I’m partial to novelty print, I think it’s a fantastic way to bring uniqueness, humour and personality to an outfit. I  am loving this cowboy inspired print from Emily and fin. The dress checks all the boxes for me, a-line, cinched at the waist, flattering length and then it has the most fabulous print!

Shoe of the week

One of my favourite milliners is www.frolleinvonsofa.com. She has the most delightful collection of whimsical and dreamy hats and fascinators which i’ve previously featured on the blog. I was so excited to discover she also stocks shoes, and my favourite are the LooLoo shoe. A black patent shoe featuring a bright bunch of balloons, is there anything more joy inspiring then a bunch of balloons? I think I would have to constantly admire my feet while I was wearing these shoes!

Have a fabulous week everyone,
