Nica SS15 Blogger Takeover!

Last Wednesday, I attended the Nica Handbags SS15 press day with the rawrsome Steph of FAIIINT. I was invited to take over Nica Handbags' Twitter and Instagram pages and also got to hang out with Nica's senior designer, Nica Kim!

I interviewed Nica earlier in the year, and it was just lovely to catch up with her and find out all the gossip behind the new SS15 collection. There were some adorable new styles on display, including some super stylish mini handbags, chic clutches and lots of across body bags!

As I was given free reign over their Twitter and Instagram, I tweeted a few of my favourite handbag styles and also interviewed Nica again! She's one of the cutest and most talented people I've ever met and is so sweet and bubbly. Here are two of the questions I asked (but you can use the #NicaBTS hashtag on Twitter to read more):

The team gifted me a beautiful bag as a present for attending and I chose the Melena mini bowler bag, which I featured in my previous outfit post. There was another EPIC surprise in store for both Steph and I...Nica Kim is going to name some AW15 bags after us! Waaah!! :O I was absolutely shocked and gave Nica the biggest hug. I told her how I always get excited whenever I see Nica bags in a store, she seemed really touched and said she just loves seeing girls wearing them.

I feel completely honoured that I'm going to have a bag named after me. As there was already a Tara bag a few years ago, it's actually going to be called my most personal nickname...Which you'll find out next year! ;)

Have you heard of Nica Handbags? Which style bag is your favourite?

T - Huge thanks to the Nica team for letting me TAKE OVER! <3

The LBD Zoey Dress + Nica Melena Bag!

Christmas party season is almost upon us [insert *AIR PUNCH*]. I haven't planned any of my Xmas parties yet but boy am I excited. If you're anything like me, you've already started thinking about your outfits. I don't think you can beat a classic LBD so I have a few new ones ready to show off, the first of which is this beautiful Zooey dress from Little Black Dress!

Dress: Little Black Dress (c/o) - Bracelet: Swarovski - Heels: Rainbow Club (c/o) - Bag: Nica (c/o) 

Isn't it a beaut? This is the size 8 and it fits like an absolute glove! It was inspired by uber babe, Zooey Deschanel and is made with a rubber-coated, honeycomb mesh overlay. The pleats provide an awesome flare and as it's so figure hugging around the waist, it's extremely flattering. Guys don't know what to make of this one, so it's definitely a good conversation starter if you're looking to mingle with the office hottie at your Xmas do. A-hem.

My adorable Melena mini bag is by one of my favourite handbag brands, Nica! I was kindly gifted this bag when I attended their press day last week. Stay tuned for an upcoming blog post on my Nica Handbags takeover, I was able to catch up with Nica and get all of the gossip from the Nica bags SS15 collection!

I finished my look with some of my favourite sparkly jewels (Swarovski, I want to wear you on a daily basis) and my Vivian Rainbow Club heels. Thankfully, I didn't dye this pair myself but left it up to the professionals. Rainbow Club shoes are said to run half a size small, but I find they run pretty true to size!

Are you hunting for Christmas Party Dresses? Which style handbag is your favourite?

Daniel Wellington Classic St Andrews Lady Watch Review!

I've been trying to simplify my outfits a little lately, less peacocking if you will, with muted colourblocking and simple jeans and jacket combo's like this, but that doesn't mean a girl can't frost like Queen Elsa ;)

Last week I too was gifted a beautiful Daniel Wellington Classic St Andrews Lady watch with leather strap - squeeeee! I already own a Daniel Wellington Classic Southampton Lady watch with a preppy NATO strap and adore it, so I'm more than impressed with this upgrade, plus they are all interchangeable so I can mix it up! To the outfit! . . .

Outfit: Jacket - H&M, Top - Joules, Jeans - Wildfox, Boots - Dr Martens, Necklace (just seen) - Mi Moneda, Bracelets - Swarovski, ChloBo, Watch - c/o Daniel Wellington, Bag - Lulu Guinness, Scarf (around wrist) - Vivienne Westwood.

The elegant face is pleasantly large yet lightweight, and the eggshell white dial is simplistic and super stylish. The satisfyingly rich tan leather strap is made of strong stuff, well crafted and sets off the rose gold frame perfectly, but I added a few blue bracelet accessories to make it pop on my wrist. I LOVE to stack and the slim Daniel Wellington styles make it so easy.

Isn't it a beauty? It's exciting to watch a relatively new brand evolve to grip the fashion world, and over the past few years or so it seems like Daniel Wellington has nabbed a firm place in our hearts with the line now stocked in huge stores like Topshop, Selfridges, ASOS, John Lewis and Goldsmiths. Their timeless styles are a minimalistic alternative to the likes of Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors, whilst still capturing the pull of the ever popular rose gold. The quality is top notch, it's clear they take pride in the craftsmanship and aren't just churning them out for the short term. This brand is here to stay and you can get 15% off until the end of November with our discount code stylerawr - so get shopping! ;)

The Classic St Andrews Lady is £159, and would make an awesome Christmas gift. Toot toot!

Daniel Wellington Classic York Lady Watch Review!

Could it be any colder!? There was definitely a chill in the air last weekend so I wrapped up during my stroll along the Bristol harbourside. Grey is THE colour for Autumn/Winter '14 and I'm all over it. I definitely need some more grey knitwear in my 'drobe! I love pairing greys and pastels together, they make such a dreamy combo...Wouldn't you agree?

Last week I received a beautiful Classic York Lady watch from watch experts, Daniel Wellington. My timepiece collection is starting to rival Sam's, and I have a feeling he'll probably be stealing this one...

Daniel Wellington watches are extremely well-made and definitely worth the price tag. I picked this lovely dark brown crocodile leather strap and rose gold face, because it's so different to all my other ones! It's luxe and classic but still perfect for everyday use. I really like that their watched come with interchangeable straps. I'm considering ordering a black leather one to mix it up a bit.

My previous DW watch was from 2012 and I can confirm the presentation boxes are now much nicer! The Classic York watch arrived with a gorgeous cream and brown leather case. Very suave. Although this is classed as a female watch, the face is quite big and I would certainly say it's unisex. I'm sure my bae will be trying to snatch it out of my paws in no time.

Are you a fan of grey for A/W? Do you own a DW watch? If you're in the market for one please use our discount code for 15% off stylerawr, valid until the end of November so perfect for Christmas gifts!

T - Forever fashionably late.
