Matching up

I've been in need of some well earned retail therapy but the best i could do was go window! (Don't worry mom and dad, im not out splurging). Anyway, i got carried away and starting matching up clothes and accessories and i've created three fabulous looks!

The first look is my take on casual friday. Some people really take it too far and either overdress and turn up tarty or just arrive looking like they are in their PJs! This look is casual but still smart and very appropriate for work. The cream ruffle blouse, dark skinny flared jeans, flower bangle and waistcoat are all from miss selfridge. The gorgeous bag is Dior by John Galliano and brightens up the outfit. The courts are from Kurt Geiger...a bit too high for me but its virtual right?!

Next up is this sexy Plait kimono dress also from miss selfridge. I would pair it with jeans for daytime and its a great way to keep warm depending on which climes you live in. The Faux snake skin oversized bag is great when you're on the move...laptops, water bottles, umbrella and whatever else you wanna log around with you. Its got designer looks but its actually from warehouse and costs £40. The brown slingbacks are from Carvela.

This look is perfect for a party or a date since valentine's day is coming up :-) . I Love this teal slinky backless dress from warehouse and i've paired it with Jimmy Choo open toe sandals...very glam! This fun patterned clutch is from Dune and i think it goes nicely with the dress. The gold necklace is by Swarovski and works well with the plunging neckline of the the crystals and the large moonlight stone in the bottom circle. I couldnt resist adding that butterfly leather waist belt, i dont know if it necessarily goes with the dress but i just want to covet it! It actually reminds me off something you might find at Tigertem...the whole butterfly element.

I dunno...what do you think?

Great outfits!

And you're right that belt is soooo Tiger Tem isn't it. Love it. We had some similar ones in but our belts always fly out so quickly. And you know last year we started a new clutch shape that looks a lot like the last one too.

I think I like the last one the best. Love that shade of green/teal. I think the belt does work, I don't like it when things are all matchy matchy, a little contrast always takes it up a notch. Fine line between contrast and a colour riot though. But that's what I love about fashion...the variety.
