Burberry’s Inner Animal

Hello Everyone! I’m back with another post about the iconic brand that is Burberry!

A major feature of the Autumn/Winter 2013 collection is animal print! Used on clothes, shoes, bags the prints give Burberry a new look & new sophistication! Below you can find a collage I’ve made of my favourite male & female accessories from the collection.

The chocolate & toffee colours of the ‘Animal Print Calfskin Sandals’ enable you to wear them at work (without being told they’re inappropriate), wear them when out, wear them whenever you want to! The 4.5 inch heels add to the shoes’ sassiness! If you would like to know more about the shoes, please click here.

There are eight different variations of ‘The Little Crush’ to choose from & the one we can see (below the peep toes) is my personal favourite out of them. This particular ‘Little Crush’ is studded with animal print & the signature ‘Burberry Check’. The bag adds a fierce touch to any outfit it is teamed with & will draw in lots of attention! If you would like to know more about this wonderful accessory, please click here.

Golden glamour & print power are what make the ‘Animal Print Calfskin Cuff’ a fabulous accessory! I love the fact this cuff has a snap-hinge meaning it isn’t difficult to put on or take off! The white & black add to the cuff’s versatility enabling you to wear it with the majority of outfits! Looking to find out more about it? If you are, please click here.

The next two accessories are from men’s part of the Prorsum print collection. Continuing with our clockwise flow, let’s discuss ‘The Boston’. Available in four different variations, I have chosen to show to you ‘The Boston In Spotted Animal Print’. With the detachable shoulder strap, the bag can be worn in two different ways. The bag’s design was inspired by vintage luggage & has hand painted edges that give a finish to the bag. If this bag has caught your eye & you would like to know more, please click here.

Last but by no means least, we have the ‘Animal Print Calfskin Gloves’. Made of super-soft leather, these gloves have a comfy cashmere lining. A metal press stud (to fasten the gloves) tops the design off perfectly! Want to know more? Please click here.

Victoria’s Vision

She’s done it again! Today, Victoria Beckham unveiled yet another set of amazing items! This time the accessories were part of her eyewear collection. The six pairs of glasses are available in black, amber tortoiseshell, taupe & topaz colours & look absolutely stunning! When speaking to Vogue, Beckham had the following to say “I need to wear glasses and had never been able to find a pair that suited me perfectly so I created my own range of optical frames.”

Handmade in Italy out of the finest materials, Victoria also said that she is “so pleased to be able to offer them online for the first time this season.” Below you can see the woman herself sporting her personal favourites (the Heavy Square).

As you can all see, the whole collection is simply beautiful! They embody VB’s sophisticated look & would look great with a variety of outfits! As soon as I saw the photo of Victoria wearing the ‘Heavy Square’ I fell in love! They look fab & instantly became my favourites!
The glasses look great in both of the colours, I honestly cannot fault them! The precise angles, the structure, just everything about them is visually appealing!
I shall leave you to oogle over the above photos, but before I do that, I have supplied the links & prices of the glasses!
Bye for now!

Holy Hotttshit!

If any of you reading this are accessory lovers, please keep reading! I have come across a website that is a jewellery gold mine! It goes by the name of ‘Hotttshit.com’ & the title definitely doesn’t lie! Before we look at the products, I’ll give you a brief background on the site.

Hotttshit.com was created out of experience, expertise & a passion for creating a business by Justin & Willie in 2012. Willie runs a product design company & Justin studied art & architecture. The two bonded over their business experiences & their interest in starting a new venture together.

Without further ado, I present to you my favourite pieces of jewellery from the pair’s site:

HOTTTSHIT.COM Fox Bangle HOTTTSHIT.COM Evil Eye Ring

The reason the fox bangle is one of my favourites is because it isn’t in your face, but has subtle charm. It is a delicate looking piece but could add a great touch to most outfits both casual & formal! The bangle is a bargain costing only $17.00! It can be bought from the site by clicking here.

A slightly more quirky item, this ring is funky & stands out in comparison to other pieces of jewellery! Again, I feel that this accessory is something that could be worn with both a casual & formal outfit! You’d be wrong to pass up on this item as it only costs $9.00! If you would like to purchase this wonder, please click here.

I absolute love the items that are on the site & the above accessories provide us with a taste of how unique the products really are! If reading this post has given you an interest in the site, please click here.

For now, that’s all from me!

Kitsy Lane’s Uptown Angel

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well!

Thanks to twitter, I recently found out about the wonderful ‘Uptown Angel Boutique’! Powered by ‘Kitsy Lane’, the lovely Nellie Corean is able to run her own online boutique selling jewellery & various other fashion accessories. If at this point, you are still wondering what Kitsy Lane is, this should help:

Each week, Nellie sends out an email, to all those who have signed up to the website, letting you know about sales that are being held on the site & to give you a taste of what can be found on Uptown Angel Boutique, I have picked out some items that are my favourites:

Uptown Angel Boutique Martina NecklaceUptown Angel Boutique Livi Scarlet Bangle

I love the simplicity of the necklace as it isn’t in your face & would add a dainty touch to most looks. Purely because of the ship related charms on the necklace, I would team this accessory with a blue & white outfit to give a sailor-esque look. This item was originally priced $58 but now costs only $52! If you would like to find out more about this item, please click here.

I love the subtlety of the bangle despite the its bold, red colour. Like with the necklace, this bangle adds a dainty touch to most looks & would be best teamed with a blue & white outfit. This accessory was formerly $28 & now only costs $22! If you would like to find out more about this item, please click here.

With that, this concludes the post, but if you like what you see & would like to see more of what is in the ‘Flash Sale’, please click here.
