Just call me Cruella De Vil in my dalmatian print get-up. 

Here's a whole host of textures for you to feast your eyes upon: suede, faux fur and quilted metallic. I was originally going to title this blog post 'Space Cowboy' which I think is still rather fitting for this outfit. But, as I've had a whole lot of SEO waffle rammed down my throat recently I'm opting for more boring post titles. Sorry guys, but I need me those brownie points from Google!

This blue suede, button down skirt was a bargain buy from Beyond Retro at their Cheshire Street store. For those of you that don't know, they actually have an outlet section there with up to 70% off all year round. This little skirt cost me just £12 and is exactly what I was coveting. Annoyingly it doesn't sit quite right at the waist due to the elasticated waistband, but I really cannot complain for the price.

What do you think of mixing textures within an outfit?

R E V I E W | JewelStreet Bracelet


Now, I'm a fussy so and so when it comes to jewellery.  I haven't even got set rules to what I would wear and wouldn't wear; I just know what I like and what I don't like. When JewelStreet contacted me to review a piece from their website I was expecting to trawl through pages of jewellery to find something I like. This was not the case as I drew up quite a large wish list.

JewelStreet plays host to a number of carefully selected, independent jewellery designers and boutiques. The choice is phenomenal as pricing ranges from as little as £20 up into thousands. It is essentially an online jewellery marketplace for sellers to showcase their products under one platform. It's definitely worth checking out whether you're looking to buy or you're a jewellery designers yourself looking to sell.

I decided to opt for this beautiful assorted, pearl bracelet by Bish Bosh Becca. I was drawn to the enchanting colours of the freshwater pearls and quartz stones. It's a piece that is perfectly in line with my own personal style and I've been reaching for it to add to my outfits almost every day.

What are your thoughts on JewelStreet and their selection?

It's no secret that I absolutely love online vintage store, ETTE. They're pretty bloody fantastic.

ETTE source the most desirable psychedelic garms and now they've also started sewing together an array of gorgeously garish bell bottoms to wet anyone's 70's appetite. Also, the gals behind the brand are some of the loveliest ladies in the land (freestyle rhyming, no biggy!). Their bell bottoms collection is pretty affordable, ranging from only £28-38. I just had to treat myself to this golden paisley sensational pair of flares. They have me feeling a little like Jimi Hendrix, but hey... that's not exactly a bad thing!

If you're not a fan of print clashing and I've made you vomit in your mouth a little bit with this paisley/glitter/velvet floral/tapestry concoction then I apologise tough shit. I certainly appreciate a multiple pattern indulgence from time to time, even if it breaks a few classic styling rules.
