You know when you see an item and it makes you go 'ERRRRRMERRRRGERRRRD IT'S SOOOOO ERRRRMERRRRRZZZIIIIINNNNG!!!'? Well, THIS.
I've had my black River Island cat bowler hat for years now and I adore it (I do believe it might've been the first one of it's kind to hit the high street) but this is a summer version and oh boy do I (strike that, WE) need it!
Straw Cat Ear Bowler Hat With Bow Trim - £32 from Dahlia - It makes me want to go boating with an owl.
I have to admit, I did gulp at the price. £32 is a lot for a hat in my opinion but I did pay close to that for my Dr Martens Aggy Deyn Bow cap sooooo I definitely see this bad boy in my future!

Hopefully you aren't bored of my festival fashion posts because Glastonbury is less than 6 weeks away and I need to sort my outfits! My friends all know that I'm quite precious when it comes to my clothing, I like everything to be perfect and I can't cope if something has a hole/mark/unintentional rip. Therefore I'm trying to take a cheap wardrobe to Glastonbury so I won't care if it gets destroyed/torn/muddy in the name of fun.
This Vanessa Hudgens-inspired aztec denim shirt is from Bliss Clothing, a super affordable online retailer we were recently introduced to. At only £10 it's cheaper than Primark and pretty darn cute and ideal for throwing over a tee/vest. Mine is a size 8 but it has a nice, loose fit so it's more like a 10. The sleeves are long (which I love) and they're just the right size for rolling up.
Shirt: c/o Bliss Clothing - Skirt: H&M - Camisole: Topshop - Belt: Topshop - Necklace: Market in Chile - Boots: c/o Steve Madden - Blue ring: Primark
Are you heading to a festival this year? Have you shopped at Bliss Clothing before?

It's no secret that I'm obsessed with Vanessa Hudgens and her beautiful bohemian style! When I win the Euromillions this Friday, I plan on moving to LA and buying her entire wardrobe. We're both huge Wildfox fans and we have a few of the same pieces (for reals), but at the moment I can't get enough of her wearing Jen's Pirate Booty.

Vanessa has such a perfect festival style. I'm off to Glastonbury 2013 next month and I'm hoping the sun will shine so I can also get my 'boho chic' on. This picture was snapped at last year's Coachella and I heart it so much. I'd definitely rock this look and a long waistcoat is #1 on my festival want list...Someone please buy me this Electra Vest!? ;)
In case you aren't familiar with the brand, designer Jen is a well-travelled, Malibu babe with an awesome personal style. She describes her style as part gypsy, part bohemian and part pirate! If I lived in cali I would make it my mission to dress like a pirate 24/7.

How amazing is this El Matador Mini Dress? When I'm an honorary cali girl, I too will wear outfits like this to buy my groceries. It's so effortless and look amazing against Vanessa's cinnamon tan.

Jen's Pirate Booty also have a few denim pieces and my favourite is this Guipil Texas Tuxedo Shirt. Denim shirts with woven patches are too cool for school and I'm taking a more affordable version to Glastonbury. This outfit has inspired me to clash prints and be a bit more adventurous. I nearly squee'd with delight when I spotted a cream lace skirt in River Island yesterday, it's so similar to Vanessa's! As much as I love the fringed bag, I think a backpack is more Glastonbury appropriate so I'm searching for the perfect one...
Are you a fan of Vanessa Hudgens? Have you heard of Jen's Pirate Booty before?

I'm a lingerie addict, have been since my mum bought me my first bra (none of that Tammy Girl printed cotton nonsense for me, I went straight for a white lace number with appliqued doves on it!) and as the years have gone by my craving for the good stuff is still with me. I love unusual and risque but well made lingerie, so finding Violet's Knickers, an online luxury boutique stocking an eclectic mix of designer lingerie, swimwear and loungewear, was a bit of a moment for me!
Each piece is handpicked by the mysterious and sophisticated Violet, and she makes sure there is something for everyone; decadence, playfulness, sensuality and femininity. So who is Violet? Check out this fun video for a glimpse of her lifestyle (I too now want to drape bow suspenders around my bedroom!) . . .
“I hope I can help you create a lingerie, swimwear and loungewear wardrobe for you so glamorous you won’t want to put your clothes on”. Violet
I've bookmarked the store in my favourites on the off chance that the boyfriend might fancy buying me a naughty surprise. And by naughty surprise I mean this Kriss Soonik Kristal Monarch Suspender Top - £90. It's totally underwear as outerwear worthy which means it's like buying two items for the price as one. I'd wear this as a top with skinnies and a lightweight slouchy cardi, or denim shorts and biker boots, it's too pretty to just keep for one set of eyes to ogle! ;)
So what else do we love? Check these bad boys out!
Another amazing piece from Kriss Soonik, the Inge Fishnet Beach Wrap - £130, is intended for the beach but it could be so much more than just a holiday cover up! I'm loving the little hood, so how about a cute layer for an everyday outfit, and obvs a saucy cover up for your fave lingerie set? Gotta love a multi tasker.
Tara and I have long swooned over the Made By Niki range, it's ridiculously luxe and gorgeous, and this Barbie Pink String Playsuit - £199, is a total stunner.
Finally, I'm lusting after my own piece of Tatu Couture since T got her paws on the body she featured last week, and this Mila Slip - £180, would be my pick for after hours. I wonder if I can convince my man that I would magically transform into Mila Kunis when I put it on? ;)
This love is serious. I could spend a fortune on this webby so please, someone please remove my purse before I do something I won't regret at all.
Violet's Knickers ladies, do it!
