Von Scharfenberg and Lady Vintage Damask Dress!

After *briefly* being without a photo editing software, I am back in action! A few weekends ago I wore this gorgeous 50's style frock from Lady Vintage. I'd definitely describe my personal style as eclectic... One day I'll wake up wanting to dress like Kate Middleton, and the next I'm channelling my inner Vanessa Hudgens. 

I felt extremely fun and feminine in this little number, mostly thanks to my beautiful new accessories. I'm constantly getting distracted by my engagement ring, it's so sparkly! The other ring making me happy at the moment is this Art Deco Marcasite and Onyx Ring from fine jewellery experts, Von Scharfenberg.

I have a bit of a thing for Art Deco style pieces, they make me think of the Great Gatsby film (my second fave film of 2013, after Walter Mitty) which I adore. I'm genuinely crazy about the entire Vintage Marcasite collection, if you want to buy someone an incredible Christmas gift, check out the Von Scharfenberg website. The prices are really reasonable for such wonderful pieces! They even stock my favourite watch brand, Olivia Burton. NOM.

I don't own many vintage-esque dresses but I should probably invest in more because they have such a flattering cut! This Damask Swing Dress is a size 8 and fits like a dream. I'd say it runs on the small side because it fits me like a glove and I usually have room up top in a size 8 dress.

Are you a fan of Art Deco jewellery pieces? Do you own any 50's style dresses?

#OOTD - Madam Rage Jumper Dress!

Sound the cold weather klaxon, here come the knitted dresses! My newest one is this beaut Madam Rage Grey Longline Jumper, priced at just £28, which I'm wearing rather racily as a dress teamed with the best trend continuation from last year, the over knee boots. To the outfit! . . .

Outfit: Jumper dress - c/o Madam Rage, Leather Jacket - Pull & Bear, Scarf - Becksondergaard, Boots - Betty Jackson at Debenhams, Bag - Grafea.

I LOVE this dress. It's a slinky fine knit, feeling more like a yummy brushed cotton, and the colours are amazing. This was my first outing in it, but literally 2 days later I had it on again for work and I got so many compliments from peeps who are so used to me wearing boring old black trousers! There's a visible zipper on the back which is a nice little touch, and the sleeves are full length. This is a size 12 and I'd say it was true to size, if not a little generous to be honest which is always a good thing when you can teeter on 12-14 at times!

As soon as I saw the vibrant teal and orange in the leopard print I knew that it was begging to be paired with my fave bold Becksondergaard scarf and neon Grafea bag. These are two colours that I wouldn't normally put together but they work so well?! Hurrah!

I do enjoy cold weather dressing. Layering up like this is my fashion life, and it always helps to not be sweltering with super thick knits under your leathers and scarves, so fine knits like this dress are perfect for batting around in the winter :)

How are you finding the transition into AW14?

In The Box - Muru Talisman Diamond Swallow Gold Vermeil Necklace!

So you may have seen that we were rather generously gifted by Muru last week, with Tara wearing the Muru Talisman Rose Gold Feather Necklace in her outfit post, but I thought I'd do a boxed post with my Muru Talisman Gold Vermeil Diamond Swallow Necklace (£70) seeing as Christmas is looming and it might be an idea to check out how bits are actually boxed for gifting purposes?

The white box with regal purple plush inner looks classy and a bit swish, perfect for gift giving, but the contents are the star! You get a sweet little message card, detailing the meaning of your chosen Talisman. The Swallow is the Talisman for Freedom, recognised for it's swiftness of flight and free spirit. Totz me. I was always regarded as a key player in the 400m relay.

Isn't she a beauty? Delicate but solid. I chose classic yellow gold because I've been heavily investing in rose gold lately, and I rarely wear silver, so this was my swallow of choice.

I think anyone would be over the moon opening a Muru piece, especially if you were able to match the Talisman to something that was special to them. Are they looking for love? Try a bow, heart or hummingbird. Are they feeling down lately? Try a feather or acorn. Are they about to embark on an adventure? Maybe gift them with an elephant or anchor. There really is something for everyone, with prices starting at just £28 for earrings. Check out the Muru Talisman Lookbook and get inspired :)
