Golden Globes 2013 – Red Carpet Winners

16 01 2013

So, what did we make of the Golden Globes this year? From what I’ve seen there’s a lot of mixed reactions when it comes to the dresses. Some left me baffled, quite frankly. Too many deep, deep v’s and knicker high splits. Like, weren’t we all making fun on Angelina’s leg last year? And now, everyone is doing it. I do not understand! The Globes fashion has let me down, but I did manage to find a few looks that I liked.

The Top 3…..

Jennifer Lawrence

All in all, too much boob, too much leg, too much dark lipsticks and not enough good risk taking. I am eagerly awaiting the Oscars Red Carpet. Let’s see if my top three will get it right again.

What do you guys think??!

Where to look for a bargain these days?

11 10 2012

I am seriously trying to spend less money on shopping. But as you guys know, I am a shopaholic. I love it. And even when money is so tight, I manage to find ways around it. (Confessions of a shopaholic could be written about me!). I especially enjoy the buzz of finding something great. And, I love a good bargain – but I am very reluctant to sacrifice quality for cost. This month, I am undergoing a different type of shopping ban. I am staying away from my regular stores and looking at the cheaper alternatives. But will this in the long run be foolish? We shall see…..

Friends of mine use the website Boohoo.com quite often. In the past I have been unsuccessful, but I looked again and purchased the above. The wedge trainer is so popular right now. My original Ash trainers are still very dear to me, so I tried the much cheaper alternative in a more winter colour. I am hopeful they will get me through the winter. Only time will tell. The jumper satisfies my jumper / burgundy/ skull needs. Perfect for my casual weekends!

I plan on hitting up Primark this weekend to see what I can come up with. The important thing is, it might be cheap, but do I need it and is it worth it in the long run? Hopefully my plan will work and I can treat myself to something amazing when I go on my holidays in November.

*fingers crossed*

Feel free to comment and let me know where else I should be looking for a good quality bargain!





JW Anderson for Topshop

15 09 2012

There has been a lot of collaborations recently of Designer and High Street. Many of which have left me disappointed – Versace and H&M, I’m looking at you! But this most recent coming together is worth the hype. The plan is to pick up two distinct pieces from the collection but, with quilted paisley, loafers and zebra prints galore, it’s proving to be quite difficult to choose. Here’s what I have my eye on….

 

The knit, crisp white shirt and pleat skirt is a look I shall be trying to emulate. Maybe even paired with the loafers, if I should be so lucky! I adore the paisley skirt and it’s hard not to love the cute accessories too. Really, there is just so much to work with, it’s hard not to want it all! A case of *eyesbiggerthanmybelly* for sure!

What pieces are you coveting?!

Blake does it best

27 06 2012

The girl can do no wrong – Blake Lively, spotted wearing very similar outfits but looking extremely good in both! She’s been on the red carpet a lot this week due to her new movie and I love it. I love seeing her in the news. Both her casual and dressy looks are looks to be emulated. No wonder she’s the face of many a campaign. Keep the outfits coming, Blake!

And, a round of applause for those Louboutins please!

Happy Easter everyone! Hope you all treated yourselves – I’m still tucking in to the chocolate eggs! Yum!

When I was Paris recently, I kept seeing the Isabel Marant high tops. Paris girls are obsessed with this shoe and who can blame them?!! Unfortunately, my budget does not stretch that far. But I did treat myself to these and I love them!

It may be winter outside…

21 01 2012

But in my heart, its spring….. Oh how I love a good cheesy song. But seriously, the wind is blowing up a storm outside and I am dreaming of Spring and Spring fashion! Found these bad boys on ASOS this morning and it got me thinking of all the style I am dying to dive into…Once the weather improves. I’m still wearing my Zara quilted coat most days. Might not be the most stylish thing I own, but it keeps me warm! Enjoy your weekend everyone!

xoxo

See By Chloe, ASOS
