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.

London’s Very Own Merge

Merge LDN. Producing British Tailored Street wear (otherwise known as BTS), this brand was founded by former ‘TOWIE’ star Tom Kilbey. With a vision to make “multifaced artistic illustration” the brand uses the creativity of both musicians & photographers to personally produce their items of clothing. Below you I have taken a screenshot of what Merge means to founder Tom Kilbey:

When Merge LDN was launched, the idea in mind was to provide men’s wear that has individuality & that tells a story. The brand’s first collection was designed & created in their London offices after personally selecting & sourcing the fabrics that are used in their pieces. Merge produces a variety of items such as jackets, t-shirts, tops & shorts. Below you can find two of the brand’s items that I love!
MLDN Alfred Sweater MLDN Tuntill Jacket

I love the class & sophisticated looks that are projected by Merge’s items of clothing so so much! The ‘Alfred’ sweater is a stylish piece that has a subtle quirkiness to it. My favourite part of this jumper is the unique touch made by adding the Merge LDN not only to the chest but also all over the sleeves. The colour scheme of the jumper adds to its versatility making it an even better item to add to your wardrobe! Costing only £79.00 this item is a bargain! If you would like to find out more about this item, please click here.

The ‘Tunthill’ jacket is simple yet stylish. Its versatility & timeless look make it even more appealing! Using the navy colour adds to that the sophisticated style of the jacket, which has worked really well! The price of this jacket is £210.00 & if you’d like to find out more about this piece, please click here.

Are you a Friend Or Faux?

Hello again everyone! In this post, I am going to be writing about the fab brand ‘Friend Or Faux’ & as always, if you haven’t heard of them you are missing out!

The brand hails from the United Kingdom & focusses on “fashion ideals and cutting edge creativity”. I absolutely love their use of prints whether they are photographs or illustrated!

I would now like to show you some of my favourite items that I feel give a true sense of the brand’s originality:

FOF White Furs T-ShirtFOF Feline Sweater

(Copyright of the above images belongs to Friend Or Faux)

 As you can see, both are unique & creative items of clothing with eye-catching prints on them. The t-shirt is clever as it is subliminally saying “Faux fur” by printing the faux over the leopard fur print. I think this subtlety is part of what makes the brand one of a kind! To top off the brilliance of this t-shirt, it is in the sale currently on over at Friend Or Faux’s website! Regardless of whether it is in the sale or not, this item is a versatile gem costing only £15.00! If you would like to find out more about the t-shirt, please click here.
Looking at the sweatshirt’s print, you can almost feel the sensuality & the sexual chemistry these women share! The photograph also suggests that the two women are embracing their inner feline predator (the leopard skin covering them). This sweatshirt is stylish, attention grabbing & versatile! It too is one of the items in the sale & can be bought for only £25.00! If you would like find out more about this sweatshirt, please click here.
I’m hoping that this post is tempting you to buy some brilliant items of clothing over at www.friendorfaux.co.uk & if you would like to see the items in the sale, please click here.

A Printastic Purchase!

Sharing is caring right? Well I feel I should share with you a gem I bought yesterday:

TOPMAN Grey Leopard Print T-Shirt

(Copyright of the above photo belongs to Topman)

This t-shirt is from Topman & costs only £18.00 (bargain)! I love the dark grey colour with the leopard print as I feel it gives the look a new edge. I also love the fact that men wear leopard print as well as women nowadays! The t-shirt looks even edgier due to the denim wash exposing the different tones in the print.

In terms of what to wear with the t-shirt, you could try off white skinny jeans & a pair of grey boots? Also, if you would like to find out more about the t-shirt, please click here.

I was planning to keep this post short & sweet, so shall leave you to check out the links!

Ciao for now! 🙂

Welcome to the Cuckoo’s Nest

Ok, so I’d like to introduce you all to a brilliant clothing brand called “Cuckoo’s Nest”. If you haven’t heard of them before, you are missing out big time! Cuckoo’s Nest makes the following products: T-Shirts, sweatshirts, shirts, jeans vests, skinny cords, jackets, hoodies, polos, woman’s tees, shorts & accessories which all look great!

The company gives a fresh, fun & bright look to clothing & I personally love all the items made by them! Without further ado, I would like to show you examples of the fab products created by Cuckoo’s Nest:

Cuckoo's Nest Birds of Paradise Cuckoo's Nest Buisness Man

(Copyright of the above photos belongs to Cuckoo’s Nest)

Even though I did just say that I love all of Cuckoo’s Nest products, the two above are my favourites! I LOVE the burst of colour on the t-shirt as it is so fun & interesting to look at! On the site, it informs you that the t-shirt has “Personally-illustrated graphic detailing all over” which I think makes it unique & even more appealing! The intricate detail of the illustrated graphics captures the true beauty of nature & shows the item’s high level of quality! The t-shirt costs £29.99 & if you wanted to know even more about it, please click here.

I picked the sweatshirt because I love the eye-catching hand illustrated graphic that is on the front of it. The fact that the sweatshirt doesn’t look too busy is one of the other reasons that I love it. As with the first product written about above, my favourite part of the products are the fine details on the illustrated graphics. The sweatshirt costs £55.00 & if you wanted to know more about it, please click here.

For now this is all from me, but if you would like to see more of the products made by Cuckoo’s Nest, please click here

River Island Green Camo Print Crew Neck Sweatshirt River Island Pink Belted Skater Skirt

The skater skirt looks great, catches eyes with the bright colour & again is versatile! The item looks young & fun without looking garish. Originally £25.00, the price has been cut down to £10.00!

Next Black Split Sleeve Top Next Denim Shirt

(Copyright of the above photos belong to Next)

The female’s tunic is brilliant for various reasons. It looks delicate & elegant & can be dressed up or dressed down (gotta love versatility)! The sale has brought this item down from £55.00 to £25.00!

The male’s shirt is again brilliant for various reasons. The brown on the collar means that you can brown as well as blue into your outfit (if you wanted to colour co-ordinate)! Originally £38.00 this shirt now costs only £11.00!

Topman’s Sale Treasures

Welcome to part three of five on the current sales going on! As you can see from the title, this post is on Topman’s sale. It is most definitely one that shouldn’t be missed as you will be getting 70% off (bargain right)!! Below you can find an outfit I’ve made after looking through the items in the items:

Topman Geek Nay & White T-Shirt  Topman Light Wash Ripped Stretch Skinny JeansTopman Ibiza Navy Canvas Espidrilles

(Copyright of the above photos belong to Topman)

The stripe pattern on the t-shirt is simple & fun but looks stylish at the same time. The geek print on the t-shirt also adds to the t-shirt’s appeal. The 70% sale reduces this gem from £18.00 to £5.00!

I couldn’t pick any other trousers than denim jeans of course (major denim lover over here)! The light wash gives them an aged look which adds another trend into the outfit making it even more stylish! Originally £38.00, these jeans now cost £12.00!

I thought two things when picking the shoes. The first was that the shoes should be suitable for the season. The second consideration was that the colours of the shoes tied in with the other items in the outfit (good ol’ colour coordination). When I saw these espadrilles I knew instantly that they were perfect for the ensemble as not only do they have the same colour scheme as the other items, but also the same patterns! Also, they are perfect for summer! This pair of espadrilles have gone from £12.00 to £6.00!
