Vendula London Bags

25 Jun

If you know me then you’ll know that I love bags and shoes; and this is a bag with shoes on it…So it’s fair to say that I love it!  I got this as a birthday present from my mum for my 21st back in March and decided that it really needed it’s own post on my blog.

Vendula London create the most wonderful, unusual bags and I really thing that everyone will find something that they’d like.  The brand was launched in 2003 and have been growing in popularity throughout the world.  All of their products are made from animal friendly faux leather too.  Other products from the brand include make-up bags, purses and ipad cases.  I love this bag so much and I always get compliments on it whenever I take I take it out and have even been told it’s like my personality but in bag form.

Vendula Bag

As you can see it has a gorgeous shoe shop design, which I love.  There are other shop design bags, but being a shoe lover this is definitely my favourite and I think my mum made a good choice!  On the back of the bag it shows a women walking her dog with lots of shopping bags (this is definitely like me!).

The inside of the bag has a cute London print lining and has multiple pockets.  I really like the multiple pockets as it makes it easier to find things and keep your phone separated from your keys.  This bag also came with another strap so as you could make it into a cross body bag but I much prefer just using the smaller handles.

So there you have it; my favourite bag!  I really think if you looking for something a little different as a present for someone (or for yourself!) then you should take a little look at their website.

Have you heard of Vendula London?  If you have what do you have any of their products and if you haven’t what do you think of them?

OOTD – Christmas

27 Dec

So this is my first post since before Christmas, so I hope everyone had a lovely time.  I really enjoyed Christmas and love giving people presents.  I feel really lucky that I got so many nice things for Christmas such as my Tassimo machine (I love coffee!), my Mark Hill Curling wand, Fall Out Boy tickets, clothes and more 🙂 I just want to say another wee thank you to everyone that gave me a present.

Anyway this was what I wore.  If you follow me on instagram then you’ll know that I bought these shoes and how much I love them.  Being a bit of small person (5ft 3), I love these shoes as they add so much height but the still manage to remain really comfy and you don’t feel like your going to topple over.

A Boot-iful Competition by Hello, Terri Lowe

29 Oct

Blogger Terri Lowe is hosting an amazing competition, (I recommend that you check out her blog anyway is awesome) where you can win either £30 or £70 to spend on Barratts shoes.

Anyone who knows me knows that I love shoes, and I was going to choose a selection of shoes up to the price of £70 but I just couldn’t decide! So instead I’ve created three categories, flats, boots and party shoes (since it’s almost Christmas).

Flats

1)  I loved these cute pink cat print shoes as there so unusual £10

2)  These bright blue flats are great for brightening up a daytime outfit £12

3) Nude coloured flats with studs, I think these would look great with skinny jeans £20

Boots

1) I think that these Rocketdog boots would go great with jeans or dresses £60

2) I love these lotus boots! There just so unusual as they lace up at the side £54

3) These shoes boots look really cute! £40.50

Party Shoes

1)  These jeweled wedge heels would make the perfect addition to any party outfit £35

2) These Truffle heels with studded detail are look awesome and are in this season hottest colour £25

3) I’m not sure what I’d wear with these Odeon heels, but I know that I love them £25

So that’s my selection of shoes, hope you like them 🙂

Passion for Fashion Competition

12 Sep

So this is the first ever blog competition that I’ve entered, so I’m hoping that it’s okay.  This post is for MoneySuper Market’s Passion For Fashion Competition, where you have to create 5 outfits for under £200.  The categories are party, outdoor, office, first date and casual wear.

Party

I choose a classic little black dress for tha party look, as I feel that you can never go wrong with that.  The dress also has lace detailing which was seen frequently on the A/W 12 catwalks.  The shoes and bag add a nice splash of colour in a sophisticated red.  There is a lot of  bead detailing in the bag, which hasn’t shown too well in the picture.  Altogether this outfit only comes to £83.98, which I feel is a great price! (I didn’t include a jacket in this outfit as most party’s will be in doors during the winter, however if you were wanting to include a jacket it would still workout at less than £200).

Outdoor

For the outdoor outfit my first thought was jeans and jumper in order to keep warm! So I chose a cute cream owl jumper from boohoo.com and skinny jeans from New Look. For the jacket I chose a classic mac style. I love the Blowfish boots from Schuh, which have a lovely furry top that I believe can also be turned up.  For accessories I added a chunky knit scarf, checked bag and umbrella (because it always rain in winter).  I chose this particular umbrella from Marks and Spencers as it has a dog head at the end, similar to the ones seen at Burberry.  Altogether this outfit comes to £198.47.

Office

I’ve never worked in an office before so I wasn’t entirely sure what to choose, so I decided to go for neutral colours.   The dress is from Topshop and has peplum detailing which will continue to be a big trend throughout A/W 12.  I decided on a bag that would be large enough to hold notebooks.  The shoes are from Stylist Pick, and only have a small heel and would therefore should be comfortable enough to wear during a full day at work.  Altogether this outfit costs £160.98.

First date

For my fist date look I decided to go for a girly look, but toughen it up a little.  The dress is in purple which is one of the seasons hottest colours.  The stud detailing on the blazer and boots help toughen up this floaty girly dress, but still make it look pretty.  To accessories I added a gorgeous snake-skin style clutch bag.  I think its can be difficult to choose a first date look and I believe that this outfit manages to look dressy without being over the top.  Altogether this outfit comes to £195.97.

Casual

And last but not least my casual outfit.  For this I decide to pair a T-shirt from moretvicar.co.uk and a tartan skirt from H! by Henry Holland @ Debenhams.  As the weather’s getting cooler I think this is best paired with a pair of thick tights and a warm jacket.  I feel that this outfit creates a casual but stand out look. Altogether this outfit comes to £191.96.

Although I have created 5 outfits, from the clothes and accessories from each category could be mixed together to create new outfits so if all were bought you could have more than 5 outfits for less that £1000!
