Can never have too many..

A girl can never have too many shoes.  Sometimes when making that vital purchase, sensibility often takes over, and the 'safe' bet is purchased.  By safe I mean the shoe that will match most outfits.  Ever thought about buying a shoe that matches nothing?   How about the shoe being the show piece of the outfit?  A stand out item that generates attention.  A plain outfit, combined with a vibrant coloured shoe.  Or, if you are feeling brave, a wild outfit with an even wilder shoe?  Be judged positively by your footwear.

What's in the wallet?

When buying a wallet or purse, choose carefully.  Your money holder speaks volumes at the cash desk, and it can often be seen as a status symbol.  If a Louis Vuitton is out of your price range, choose something brand less, but stylish.  Plain leather looks sleek, whereas cute prints show character of personality.

Urban Outfitters have a great selection of wallets and purses.  See my hot picks below.

Plain wallet £16.00
Print satchel wallet £14.00

If you fancy blowing your budget, invest in a Vivienne Westwood creation; status symbol with a flamoboyant print.

I heart slogans

Slogan T Shirts are perfect for making a statement.  They can be a controversial way of demonstrating your point of view.  They can also communicate fun or sarcastic opinions.  The type of slogan expresses the personality of the wearer, so choose your slogan wisely.


Slogan T shirts have a versatility in style.  They can be worn with jeans or leggings for the casual look.  However, team it up with a blazer, and it automatically appears more sophisticated.

Vest £13.99
Blazer £68.00

The Militarian

The military look portrays confidence and charge.  The bold army print demonstrates a force not to be reckoned with.  Similarly, the military boot can appear to be domineering.

However, to wear key military inspired pieces with a more feminine approach, gives the essence of tenacity.  The military boot, teamed up with a flowery dress, is a festival essential.  Not only do they provide comfort together, but they also give the traditional 'girly' look an edge.  Similarly, the military jacket, worn with a fitted dress or tapered trousers, portrays a fearless woman, who is not afraid to show her independence.

The harem

Trending at the moment is the harem pant.  For those that don't know, the harem are baggy trousers that taper at the ankle.  They can be found in many varieties, plain, jersey, silk, sequinned, and even as a short.  They prove to be a comfy alternative to the legging, and can be worn both casually and smart.

The offer is vast on the high street at the moment, with retailers Topshop and River Island commercialising the style.  A popular option is the printed harem pant, worn in the day with a baggy T shirt, or at night with a fitted top and accessorized with a gold necklace.

Get the look here:

Harem pant available at Topshop £28

Frilled vest top available at River Island £24.99

The harem may not be to everybody's taste, but it is a winner for me.  What do you think?
