J x PIXIE KNITWEAR!

Pixie Knitwear was one of the first brands that we featured in an outfit post when we started blogging, their fun knits are super warm and stylish and we love them still! I recently got my paws on the gorgeous Chunky Cable Sweater, which is now £35 in the sale! This chunky, cropped cable knit sweater is the ideal cover up for spring; heavy enough to be that final layer, but the open sections in the sleeves still let you show a little skin, or flash another top from underneath. I have been literally throwing it over all kinds of tees and tanks over the last week or so and it's chilled, laid back look just looks cool with anything! It's fast becoming a wardrobe staple :)





Available in S (UK8-10), M (UK10-12) and L (UK12-14), it's definitely true to size, I have the L and it's more than comfortable whatever I put under it!

With 50% off everything online, there's never been a better time to stock up on Pixie knits, head to the store NOW, please!

J - caaaaaaaable guuuuuuuuy!

Wildfox Astrology Fox - Aquarius = Simply Irresistable!

It's no secret that we adore Wildfox Couture, so when we were given the opp to be part of the Wildfox Astrology Fox gang, we literally squealed!


Wildfox's Heart of Gold range of tees are dedicated to the 12 signs of the zodiac, with each tee rocking a fun slogan that represents the sign's personality. As an Aquarius, I am apparently 'Simply Irresistable', as if we didn't know already ;)


Wildfox Couture Aquarius Simply Irresistable tee, £65.

I took my inspiration from this iconic Rolling Stone Britney cover (look how adorably dark blonde her hair is!), because she has always been simply irresistable in our eyes, we worship her!


I laid a few tees out from my WF collection to lie on, grabbed a couple of toys and a ringpop and set to work pouting. Simply Irresistable? I hope!





Okay, so that last one is a little naughty, but no-one said irresistable couldn't be saucy right? ;) The tee itself is everything you love about Wildfox; oversized but sexy AS, soft and yummy, and of course - super cool.

Check out all 12 tees here and let us know if your starsign motto suits you!

J - Such a wild fox.

Tara HEARTS Pixie!

The weather this week in the UK has been absolutely wonderful! This weekend I've been off enjoying the sunshine while wearing my new FAVOURITE wardrobe piece...the Bow All In One from Pixie!


We've been HUGE Pixie fans for well over a year now, they have the most incredible knitwear collection. Pixie has even been spotted on celebs such as Mischa Barton, Katie Price and Fearne Cotton!

This bodysuit was perfect for my stroll along the Bristol Docks, it's made of a soft fine cotton gauge with Lycra, so it stopped me feeling chilly but kept me looking cute!


I paired this gorgeous bodysuit with my yummy Victoria's Secret PINK Blazer, H&M Jeans, Kookai bag & Topshop Ballet Pumps! How very nautical of me ;)

Uh-oh! While browsing their website for more goodies, I've just noticed that they have a mega Mid-season 50% off SALE. Hide my plastic!


You can now buy the Bow All In One for a bargain £25, instead of £50- Wowza!

So what do you think, are you a fan of my bodysuit? I just adore the bow detailing & it's sooo soft as well. Super Kawaii!

Pixie is all about gorgeous, fun, great quality, sexy knitwear. We're totally in love with it. Are you!? T HEARTS Pixie XoX

P.S Be sure to follow Pixie on Twitter & Facebook for all the latest news! ;)

New Shakuhachi at My Catwalk! LOVE.

I love Shakuhachi! It's sooo pretty, feminine yet still super edgy. Check out these new arrivals at My Catwalk that I'm currently LUSTING over:


Macrame Fringe Hooded Jacket (Pre-order) -£196.

Eeeeeeeeek! J LOOK AWAY. It's velvet, it's fringed & it has a hood. Ohmygosh. Yes, we NEED!



Alligator Up Down Dress
(Pre-order)- £123.

This is just so aussie ;) We love to embrace our inner animal & this print is gorgeous! It has a great loose fit which is just perfect for the summer.


Panelled Lace Chiffon Long Tee Dress (Pre-order)- £184.

Well hello there! Super boho & super hot. If you're only going to buy one maxi dress this summer, then this should be it. It's absolutely beautiful & is guaranteed to make everybody stop and stare. Work it girl!


Panelled Lace Chiffon Tee (Pre-order)- £110.

The tee version of the above maxi! I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to simply rock a pretty brassiere under this, but it's sooo lovely & delicate. I also want.



Bandage Off Shoulder Dress
(Pre-order)- £147.

Va va voom! This burnt orange is so hawt, I adore the ruching & how figure hugging it is. One for the town me thinks! ;)


Heavy Metal Bell Sleeve Dress (Pre-order)- £196.

Made for the dance floor. Is there such a thing as too much embellishment? I think not. Love the oversized bell sleeves & this has to be the hottest LBD I've seen for a while!

So there you have it. MMM...What piece is your favourite? Or do you just want one of each like me? ;) T 4 Shakuhachi! XoX

Round Em' Up!

I'm having an antsy 'might as well throw my credit card INTO the lappy' moment, so, as therapy, I'm going to TALK about what I want to buy, instead of just buying it.

These, I covet badly. And I haven't coveted a pair of sweats since L.A.M.B. went leo in SP08. Wildfox Couture Royal Wings Pants, $129 from Karmaloop. Siiiiigh.


Yellow is fast becoming my favourite SS11 colour, and these denim shorts are legit. I suspect I could do a dye job myself but at £32, these aren't too shabby!
Renewal Yellow Levis, £32, Urban Outfitters.


It's no secret that T & I are adopted Charley's Angels, and the hot denim brand continues to blow me away with the Charley 5.0 Cold Shoulder shirt, £130 from The Raw Denim Bar.


Let me hear you say this shit is bananas B.A.N.A.N.A.S! Banana pendant, £5.40 at Accessorize! Seriously, how adorable? I'm totally picking this up when I'm in town next!


I think out of all of them, I'll end up with the necklace. I know I can be a good, good gurl. I hope *puts cc back in purse...*

J - if I was a rich girl...

Things That Make You Go Mmmmm.....

We want to be on this. That is all. Well that's not all actually, because I can't stop talking about it, it's so awesome. Creepy awesome. But perfect for dark & twisty T & J :)

Obey Bone Finger Ring, $32 at Giant Peach.

What's In J's Incredibly Small Bag?

My current fave bag is a L.A.M.B. crossbody, tiny really, which explains why I usually carry a carefully folded cotton tote in there, but I adore it. It fits in with most outfits perfectly, and I love the security a body hugging crossbody provides.

You'd be surprised what I can get in this bad boy but I don't use public transport so I rarely need to carry around anything other than a chick's necessities. Books, magazines, iPod's etc never see the insides of any of my bags. I carry the bare essentials. And my essentials are.....


The obligatory folded cotton tote, in this case, a much loved and manhandled Wildfox Couture Love Potion one.

Keys - both house and car. Please note the photo keychain of my angst ridden yet ever loving boyfriend Mr Cullen.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 - my baby whom without I could not harass T all day, everyday.

MAC Viva Glam 2 Lady Gaga lipglass AND lipstick, because I switch between glossy and matte all day.

Trusty Harajuku Lovers notebook and fun Hello Kitty multi-coloured pen.

Tyre valve caps - ummm....?

Eylure false eyelash glue - because when you don't have it with you, you inevitably end up with your lashes on your cheek.

And cards, which of course get zipped up in the inner pocket. I save my purse for my bigger bags.




And some gratuitous close ups of this spawn of Gwen.




Et voila! Like me, my bag's life doesn't have much room for error, but unlike me, he does have his own personal assistant should he become overloaded. Life is good for my Lambie. Siiiigh!

J - the raddest queen of them all.

United Nude=Shoe Art!

Launched in 2003, United Nude products are about clear concepts, elegance and innovation. Sold worldwide & loved by fashionistas across the globe, it's time to share the awesomeness that is United Nude...

My top picks
Abstract- €280

Errr...Wow!? These are absolutely amazing...Definitely a conversation starter & perfect for the summer ;)


Cup Hi Top- €255

I can totally see J in these! A sculptured heel piece which literally 'cups' the heel of a classic shoe and also acts as a backpiece. Love. Haiku- €220

Available with a camel & pale blue strap, this shoe was named after the form of poetry because of it's succinct and beauty.

My FAVOURITES are the following two pairs from the Iris van Herpen X United Nude collection:


EEEEEEEEEK! Each pair is hand made with the highest grade Italian kid leather. This pair costs €850 and comes in all black, off white & nude.


WOWZA. They also come in black and are so affordable *a-hem* at €995. How gaga-licious!? I want to own a pair just so I can put them on a shelf and stare at them.

So what do you think, are you totally digging the shoe art!? They're like little pieces of architecture & I for one can't wait to see what they design next!
SO hawt. T XoX

Be sure to stalk United Nude on twitter & like them on Facebook too!

Counting Down The Days Til Summer...Oh JOIE!

JOIE are getting us in the mood for summer! We can't wait until we're golden brown, licking ice lollies & most importantly, wearing delicious summer clothes...



How cute is this print!? I absolutely NEED the Garden Party Floral India Tank ($178) & the Garden Party Floral Masha Top ($198) is super sweet as well (if tanks aren't your thing).


The Border Floral Gloria Tunic ($208) looks so versatile! It can be worn over a bikini/with shorts in the day & then glam'd up with jeans/heels for cocktails later! Also, if you're a bit maxi mad (like me) then check out the Border Floral Romitette Dress ($358), gorgeous much!?

It's no shocker that the line is inspired by Southern California. SO relaxed yet super stylish.



The Border Floral Alanna Tunic ($248) is definitely my favourite piece although the A La Plage St. Maartin Paisley Bahamas Dress ($198) is a close second! They are just so pretty & perfect for the summer! I want to be on a hot exotic beach already.

So what do you Rawrers think, which piece is your favourite & are you also ready for summer!?

T needs some JOIE (French for Joy) in her life ;) XoX

Tribal Print Lovin'

Tribal prints make me excited. Not only are they super edgy & look totally badass, they remind me that I'll soon be travelling the world again before I know it ;) Here are some of my favourite pieces which I NEED asap:

Warehouse


Tribal Scarf Print Cutout Shoulder Top, £55- Warehouse.
Tribal Scarf Print Maxi Dress, £80.00- Warehouse.

I absolutely love both of these. I've been stalking the top for quite a while now and believe me when I say that both pieces look even more beautiful in person! EEK.

MinkPink

Mink Pink Inca Shoulder Bodysuit, £44.99- Spoiled Brat.

I'm still rather body suit obsessed & this one ticks all the right boxes. The print is bold & the shoulders are padded. Talk about designed to make a statement!!

Stolen Girlfriends Club




Spike Dress in Digital Aztec Print, £295- ASOS.
Anja Tribal Shorts, £235- ASOS.

Stolen Girlfriends Club can do no wrong. I loooove the structure of the spike dress! I wish I had this kind of pocket money to play with though...

Sass & Bide


Habits Of Love Dress, £147- My Catwalk.

Sort of tribal...A-hem. This deserves to be in here just because it's amazing!? I love the print & the contrast silk panel gives it that WOW factor.

American Apparel



Printed High-Waist Skirt, £26
- American Apparel.
Afrika Printed Headband, £3.50- American Apparel.

Check out the above AA skirt being worn as a dress! Who doesn't love that so many of AA's pieces can be worn in multiple ways!? If you aren't brave enough to wear such bold prints, how about accessorising with this cute headband instead? ;)

So what are your opinions on this trend!? Do you have any favourite pieces?

I can't wait for it to be summer already because I want to be covered in tribal prints! T XoX
