OMG Lust-have!!

HOW nice are these shoes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A new addition to the blog, called Lust-have, where if I come across something particulary spectacular, they will have a short post dedicated entierly to them. Today its these A.M.A.Z.I.N.G Louisa sandal by Kurt Keiger

Now I am not one to get excited over shoes, (usually the fact I cant walk in most of the ones I like, doesn't help lol ) but these are worth getting giddy over. I mean c'mon!

And if the flats are not for you, they have their sister in shoehood, which is in heel form.....

Miss Selfridge

There has been alot of hype rescently over Miss Selfridge. Especially after Jessica Lowndes from 90210, wore a embellished Miss Selfridge jacket to a rescent event.

Not to mention More! Magazine is doing a competition where, a person wins a Miss Selfridge outift everyday.

Aaaand I just so happen to love Miss Selfridge, I thought it would be nice to do a feature on the top High Street shop.....

Miss Selfridge has had alot of inspiration from the 40s & 50s recently, I have put together some outfits using entirely Miss Selfridge clothes, this is how i got on......

I absolutely adore this look, and it's probably my favourite. It so chic and sophisticated, and is extremely feminine. All the colours blend and compliment eachother, because of their pearly hues.

This look has the whole girly cowgirl look going on, and is really chilled out and relaxed. The lace socks give a really cute edge to the brogues, and the bangles with the writing over them, really add character.

Hey check me out mixing different florals, I've been seriously scared to do this guys, but I've overcome the fear!!...I'm so proud lol :) Aaaanyway, like the above look I have mixed florals, which is bang on trend. I read in one of magazines not to mix more than two, but hey who says there's rules to fashion!?

This is my designer look-a-like outfit. These two pics are from D&G's Spring/Summer Collection. And this Miss Selfridge number is a mix of the two dresses, I have styled it as close to the pictures as I could given the resources. Pssst....look more florals! ;) its out of control, but oh well they make me happy :)

This look is like a more versatile outfit Katy Perry would wear. It is 50s inspired, and I think the kitsch, kooky earrings do just the job (Kitsch= another trend we've ticked)

This outfit is Breakfast at Tiffianys inspired. I found a black version of the earlier top, and paired it with a spotty skirt for a more mordern, kooky feel. I thought flats gave it a chic spin. You can wear it with heels (I'd recommend black heels with a scalloped edge) but I really think you shoudl stick with these shoes, the velvet, the detail, ohh they're so lush. You can't replace shoes like these - I'm just saying!

Last but certainly not least, the more I look at it the more I think this outfit works. It has now also become one of my favourites. Oh, how I wish I had lots of money, I would have so much fun shopping. This works because all the pieces have warm tones running through them, this is an outfit you could wear anywhere. Concert, date, shopping, cinema, it does it all :)

I hope I have showed how great Miss Selfridge is, and maybe even persuaded you to check it out. I hope you enjoyed my post, and tell your friends!
Until next time
