Olivia Moschino Leather Belt

3 comments

I have this one thing that has been on my wishlist for what seems like an AGE and I have seen it on the likes of the Kardashians, Rita Ora and Irish blogger Suzanne Jackson. These people wear it with so many different outfits and it's so versatile which makes me want it even more! It's the MOSCHINO Olivia Embellished Leather Belt and what a beauty she is! It comes with a hefty price tag so unless I get an out of the blue promotion or my garden suddenly grows a money tree. I don't think i'll be purchasing it anytime soon! It could be an option for Christmas present though, or a gift to myself for graduation in the summer. Who knows?
Moschino Olivia Leather Belt
Moschino has been so over the top lately. I'm not sure if I'm a fan of the whole McDonald's-esk thing they have going on! I mean like a phone case that looks like fries? A Spongebob jumper dress? Well I'm sure it would appeal to someone out there but I'm not that brave! However, I ADORE this belt though, it's genuine leather (well, it would need to be!) and it has an in-your-face logo on the front. Yes pleaseee.
NET-A-PORTER sells this belt for £210 so is it justifiable? Well it was first seen on the catwalk in the 80's and it's still going strong. Is that enough reason?! It could be called an 'investment' that would literally do you a lifetime! I also think it would go with literally anything, I'd wear it with high waisted jeans with a top tucked in and a leather jacket over the top.  

What are your thoughts on this classic?

Blue Vanilla Black Lace Party Dress Review

Black Whistles Clutch Bag

heyyyyyyy beauts!

I am on the ball today and I *think* I now have the perfect Christmas party dress! Everybody needs one of those, right? The lovely people at Blue Vanilla sent me this Mimi lace sleeve black dress and I was so happy as I had been eyeing it up on their website, as you do. I'm not a huge fan of black and I don't wear it that often but I just love the long lace sleeves on this dress. Anything with some lace on it is a winner for me, especially at this time of year. Yay for party season!

I was surprised to find that the quality of this is actually very good, it is a great heavy material and it falls nicely, a great find at only £22. I don't know about you, but I don't like spending a heap of money on one outfit for one night out and I would be more than happy to pay closer to the £30 or even the £40 mark for a dress of this quality, and I mean that! 

To be honest, it actually reminds me of the shape of my irish dancing dress. Long fitted sleeves and swings at the bottom, fellow irish bloggers will know where I'm coming from there! I have clinched it in at the waist with my Ted Baker waist belt to give it a bit more shape but I like equally without. The great thing about plain black is that you can team it with any colour. You can be so flexible with your accessories, jewellery and shoes, so no panicking wondering what to wear with it! Size-wise I wear a size 12 on bottom and a size 10 top and this dress is a size small. It fits perfectly, this would lead me to believe that the sizing runs generous as i'd usually have to order a medium in most brands.

I purchased these Eiffel Tower tights in Primark for the bargain price of £1 but I couldn't find anything in my wardrobe that I could wear them with. I like how they lift the dress without being too over-the-top, I'm not sure if plain black tights would have had the same effect, what do you think?

So anyway rambling aside, if you have a Christmas party to attend this year I highly recommend the Blue Vanilla website. Check out their going out dresses, there are some beaut ones! Sigh... yet another online store to spend my wages on!

Are you a lover of black? Check out my black jumpsuit which would also be great for a party night! I also have been eyeing up this floral print white collar dress from Blue Vanilla for something a little more casual. Collars are my favourite thing ever and these ones have little embellishments on them. So cute!

Simple Sun-Kissed Moisture Cream Review

4 comments
Simple sun-kissed moisture cream

When I started my little blog at the beginning of the year I made a promise to myself that i'd be honest with all my reviews, whether they be good or bad. Unfortunately the Simple Sun-Kissed Moisture Cream was one of my disappointing purchases this summer and saying as I seem to review absolutely EVERYTHING I buy, I couldn't not review this. Honesty and all that! I have very pale skin and I like to try and hide this with a bit of fake tan every now and again and a bit of bronzer. Not to look totally tanned but to just take away that pale scad. 

Okay, so first things first (amaryllis) I don't actually think this made any difference to my skin, I know it takes a few days to build a tanning product up but after 3 days or so there still wasn't any great colour on my face! Maybe it works for other people, maybe it was just my skin but it just didn't do anything for me unfortunately.
Secondly, I know any tanning products don't smell overly nice but this one was especially bad, possibly because it was on my face I could smell it constantly. I also got paranoid that other people around me could also smell it!
Thirdly, it is very greasy, and I would have oily-ish skin so it didn't help matters that way. It just made my face look wet and it didn't particularly soak in. This really surprised me because I am a HUGE fan of Simple products. I use everything from their face wipes to toner so I purchased this thinking it would be brilliant like all the rest of their products. It just wasn't the case for me.

So I think it's safe to say that this isn't a product that I will be repurchasing. I don't want to totally put you off though, I'm just stating my opinion and at £4.99 it's not expensive, so you can always try it and if you don't like it then it's no biggie. Like I said, maybe it's just my skin type.

On the other hand, here are mini reviews of the Simple products I love in my Holiday Skincare essentials post!

Autumn Wishlist '14

2 comments
Hi! I'm mydogblog09 from mylifethroughtheeyesoftheweb.wordpress.com, doing my first guest post in what seems like forever! so, erm, enjoy!
Autumn Wishlist



Sticking with the Autumn theme over on this week, I thought I would share some of my wish list items with you all. Getting straight into it, I love Yankee Candles, always have and always will, and who doesn't want a candle which sums up the seasons in a scent? As mentioned in my 'Autumn Outfits' post I'm obsessed with plaid shirts and distressed jeans at the moment. They look effortlessly casual yet thrown together and on trend. It's a winning combination is it not? Fragrance-wise, I'm loving the new Marc Jacobs scent: Daisy Dream, I've tried both the other Daisy perfumes and can't wait to get my hands on this one! At £50 a bottle it may be while yet though... These boots are the same, but I cannot stress enough how much of an obsession I have had with the Doc Marten boots, They go with pretty much anything, comfy and will keep my feet warm(ish) in Winter. The only thing holding me back is the £100+ price tag and my empty purse. There are two makeup products I've heard people raving about and would love to try, the Too Faced Better than sex mascara, I really don't like the name to be honest, but so many blogs have said they love this mascara that I would like to try it out at some point, it's supposed to be similar to Benefit's They're Real mascara (my all-time favourite) from what I can tell, if anyone knows let me know! Finally, on my wish list is the Naked palette from Urban Decay, a classic and with such gorgeous neutral colours, it's perfectly understandable, right? 

 What's on your wish list this season? I would love to know, comment or tweet me. Thank you so much to The Fashion Six for letting me guest post, I had a 'break from blogging' (almost a year, so quite an extended break), so its great to be interacting on other blogs again.

DressKode Low Rise Indigo jeans Review

DressKode Low Rise Indigo Jeans Review
DressKode Low Rise Indigo Jeans Review

Hello beauts! Today I have these DressKode Low Waist Indigo Jeans to show you. The lovely people at DressKode sent me these and I am very impressed with them. You know how it is, you can search high and low for the perfect pair of skinny jeans for ages and with no luck at the end of it. I love skinny jeans that are skinny from top to bottom as I have quite skinny ankles. They certainly look better fitted at the bottom rather than all baggy!

Another thing that I like about these is the colour. I'm not a fan of light coloured jeans, I don't even wear them in summer! My favourite denim shade is a very dark navy just like these. I'm not sure why, I suppose once you get into a habit then it sticks with you!

The only reservation I have about these DressKode skinny jeans is that they are low waist. I am used to high waisted jeans as I love tucking my shirt into them, however, it's good to have a change every now and again. Some people love high waisted, others prefer low rise, it's personal preference really!

I've had a snoop around the DressKode website and there are a few things that have took my eye. In particular the dresses! It's that time of year when everyone is beginning to think about their Christmas party dress and for an outfit that you are going to wear once, you don't want to put a huge amount of money into it! DressKode is highly affordable, here are some of my favourite picks for a Christmas party, just click on the images to go to the website.
