Dahlia’s Autumn/Winter 2012 Lookbook.

October 1, 2012

I am a Dahlia fanatic – we all know this, despite the fact that I’ve never actually had enough spare cash to buy anything from them yet (soon to change and, by soon, I mean in the next hour – love you, student loan). Anyway, they emailed me the other day with some beautiful images of their Autumn/Winter lookbook so I thought I’d write a post about my favourite looks of the season. The company, ran by sisters Tracey and Leigh, never fails to create gorgeous preppy but sophisticated looks – including delights like pinafores and vintage fabrics.

Passion For Fashion – Moneysupermarket.com Competition Entry Part 1.

September 19, 2012

Like most fashion/beauty bloggers, I spend my mornings trawling through Twitter looking for something that catches my eye – be that the latest RT and follow competition, more recently gorgeous Instagram snaps from LFW or big competitions: like this amazing Moneysupermarket.com addition!

So here’s my entry:

Here are a couple of pictures of my outfit that day which, may I add, I ran around New Look frantically purchasing the day before I left for London (I only found I was going about 16 hours before we set off!):

Dahlia ‘New-In’ Clothes Crush.

September 4, 2012

I have been fashion-perving on Dahlia’s beautiful clothes for a couple of  years now and, sadly, still cannot afford to purchase anything. Their gorgeously girly, yet still tailored and very Alexa Chung lines have attracted the attention of many a celebrity stylist – with the likes of ever on-trend Caroline Flack being papped in their clothes. Their New In collection does not disappoint, especially given the A/W styles coming in (my favourite time of the fashion calendar) and leather, baroque-styling and floaty blouses taking over floral dresses and sandals, finally.
