Fred Flare 2012 Wish List

Now I love being British and don’t usually envy the Americans..BUT the one thing they have that we don’t have in the UK and I am super jealous of is that they have FRED FLARE

I love kitschy, cute, fun products and Fred Flare is pretty much my dream shop, it really reminds of LOGON/ CITY SUPER in Hong Kong, but alas the only thing that comes close to it in the UK is the home department in Urban Outfitters! 

It’s a shame their international delivery charges are so high otherwise I’d be ordering s*** loads off there constantly! Here’s my current wish list…

PERIWINKLE OSTRICH PURSE

Image

or handbag as I would call it! I adore it, I love the colour as it’s bright and bold, but not too in your face and what makes it is the gold chain! …ah Chanel dreamy…

Anna Dello Russo H&M

H&M is genius for collaborating with THE queen of fashion ANNA DELLO RUSSO. For those who don’t know Anna is an Italian style icon who works for Vogue and well she’s pretty much everything I want to be when I’m older! 

She’s got the look, the style and she’s just so IT!

Image

I adore the turquoise suitcases she’s got and they’re available as part of her H&M collaborations. 

Her upcoming collection will have plenty of Gold and Turquoise all over pieces of jewellery and accessories ranging from bags and shoes to necklaces and bracelets!  So stylish and so Italian! 

Here are some are the promo pics …. eek!

Image

LOVE THIS BRACELET!!

Image

This gold bootie is to die for!

Image

Turquoise – CHECK!

Gold – CHECK! 

Uber-cool sunglasses – CHECK ALL OVER THAT!!

Image

I want the suitcase!

Image

 

One word: CLUTCH!

There are so many great pieces I’m having a hard time narrowing down which ones I want! Sadly as I don’t live in London, which is where most of the pieces will be sold in store – it’s not available in Leeds 😦 I’m going to have to try my luck online come 4th October! 

I had 100% success online when the H&M Lanvin collection came out a few years ago when pretty much everybody else couldn’t even log on so hopefully I’ll have the same luck this time round too! 

Image

Wah how to decide?! 

Image

Is it greedy to want every single piece?!

Sadly my bank account won’t let me buy every single piece! But here’s my top picks (i.e. what I’m going to buy!)

Image

Image

These sunglasses are PHENOMENAL! I MUST MUST MUST MUST MUST HAVE!

 Image

Just Gold melting away…

Image

J’adore…..

Image

Image

…and the bracelets just to give my wrists some gold candy! 

I’m so excited for the collection to launch, it’s bringing back memories of the lovely Lanvin collection which I think was one of the best designer collaborators H&M have had! 

Long Live Anna!!

AQUABYAQUA Louise Midi Dress

I am totally crushing hard on AQUA COUTURE’s A/W City of Gold collection and there are so many pieces from it that I want! I’ve got a mini wish list in my head already, but I bought one of the dresses that I saw in the lookbook that I just fell in love with! 

It was 100% my style; I loved the bold colour, the shape and the massive peplum frill around the waist! Plus it was a more classier dress length which now that I’m getting older is more suitable for me!

The only dilemma I had was picking which summer shade I wanted; tangerine orange or deep pink! 

In the end I went for the pink as I just loved the shade and pink is my favourite colour too! Usually with Aqua’s dresses I tend to stick to the classic black or white colours, but recently I’ve been loving the bright shades (SULPHUR SPRING!!) so thought I would branch out more into their colour palette! 

Here it is on the website… P.S. I really LOVE the belt! So Egyptian ..

Image

Sadly I’m not 5ft9, in fact I’m barely 5ft so I was a bit worried about how long the dress would be on me, but it fits fine! I got a size 8 in the end as I couldn’t get the 6 past my hips! 

Image

Yeah the bottom bit got creased quite easily and this dress is actually unbelievably hard to fold as the peplum frill doesn’t bend, but you can’t deny the dress is a beauty…

Image

The frill is massive and no matter how you sit down, it does not lose it’s shape at all!

Image

Image

Image

You can see from the picture that the colour really stands out as well as the design and that’s what I love about this dress! 

I really can’t wait for the rest of my Aqua wish list to become available on their website! Another season.. another bunch of winning dresses and skirts! 

Browns Restaurant – Leeds

I have always walked past Browns as it’s in the Light in Leeds, but after all these years it’s been there I’ve never been in until now!

TBH for ages I though it was the hotel restaurant which is probably why I’ve never been! But had a look at the menu with my sister and one dish stood out to both of us and we wanted it: Lobster Tagliatelle.

Mmm it sounded delish! I love lobster, I love cream sauce, I love pasta, therefore PERFECTION! So we went inside and the decor is really 1920’s! We got a window seat and it was nice and bright with loads of large plants inside and brown chairs around it was just really 1920’s, but it really went with the theme of restaurant!

The service was good if a bit slow, but that may have been because they were busy! The waiter we had was good though and he got my fussy order (no greens) right first time too so I was more than happy…

Image

It was really yummy and creamy! Surprisingly there was actual quite a lot of lobster pieces underneath the pasta so you do get quite a lot in the dish. The sauce was a bit more creamy cheesy then white winey and I’ll admit it was quite a heavy meal and I couldn’t finish it, but I did enjoy it and would definitely get it again and actually I would definitely go back to Brown’s to eat again! 

We ordered a portion of fries too.. 

Image

Looking at the rest of the menu a lot of their dishes are meat dishes and I don’t tend to go for meat dish in restaurants as I prefer pasta, but they sounded nice…

Wouldn’t say it’s the BEST place in Leeds for food, but definitely worth a visit at least once and the atmosphere and decoration gives it a great warm feel! 

H&M Pearl Jewelled Gems Necklace

I got my hands on the highly coveted amazing H&M necklace that basically sold out before it even went on sale!

Just looking at it, it’s not hard to see why it’s so popular…

Image

It looks fantastic on and really gives any plain top or shirt a real pop..

Image

There’s so much going on around the neck it’d be almost impossible to miss!

I love the pearls, the gold chain, the gems and the black rope, in fact I love it full stop.

Image

Image

It’s such a statement piece and I’m so happy with it I’ve actually been looking at some other necklaces now similar to this that I could get! I found this one which I really like..http://www.galibardy.com/amber-necklace-b-389-p.asp so I may purchase this too! But for now I’ve got my H&M one to keep my outfits blinging!

Kandee Shoes Rotella Heels

Finally Kandee’s Skinnie Bitch collection has landed! I for one had to resist the serious temptation to go all out and buy all the items I wanted and I’m going to spread out my purchases over a few months instead!

Now tough decision here: which Skinnie Bitch would I get first?!

A) Dyna – black super high booties 

B) Rotella – black lower court heels that would be more practical

C) Naranja – these orange bad boys are to die for!

D) Dolce – pink clutch bag utterly juicy

So there was my dilemma and in the end I decided to go for practical over want! (Although watch this space I’m bound to buy all these and more anyway!)

My Rotella’s arrived….

Image

I absolutely love the new bespoke gold tipped python print..it just gives it that extra gloss over..

The A/W Kandee’s now come in limited edition black boxes with new black drawstrings bags..

Image

 

Image

The gold just gives it that arghh I can’t describe it..

Image

Love the new heel height, a lot more practical and comfortable..

Image

Shiny gold sole.. makes me not want to wear them as I don’t want to ruin them..

Image

Gold tipped fish scales..

Image

Image

 

Image

I was a little bit worried when I tried them on as they seemed a little bit big, but actually when walking around in them they didn’t slip off one bit! I’m in love…

Image

Next time…Dyna…I’m coming for you ….
