Save Spend Splurge…Floral Explosion

1. SAVE: New Look’s Sunburst Floral Balconette Bra £9.59 In sizes: 32B-36DD.New Look’s lingerie collection is definately one to watch. While components and fit is slightly compromised to meet the bargain price, the prints and designs are surprising. This particular bra gives a fairly standard fit, but the print and general finish looks really high end, definitely a bargain worth snapping up.

2. SPEND: Gossard’s Wildflower Plunge Bra  £29 In sizes 30A-38G. This is a bra that really has to be tried on to appreciate, but I’ll try my best. The fit is just incredible. It manages to boost your breasts into a perfect plump clevage, whilst still feeling completely and utterly supported. The print used is an exclusive hand painted, French artwork from 27/06/39! The fabrics are the sleekest satin and details such as the gold rings and sliders, gold hook and eye and delicate red organza bow make this feel like a bra that has come straight out of Paris. I always wear it if ever I want to feel completely encased and supported, and also a little bit special.

3.SPLURGE: Agent Provocateurs Ashleen Padded Bra £110 In sizes 32A-36E. True to A.P’s reputable quality, this bra will give you one of the best shapes ever. With a perfect plump apple shaped clevage teamed with the gorgeous, fashionable and daring combination of deep purple floral and hot pink. It is a set to evoke all the feminine charms inside of you. Worth every penny.

In the Spotlight…Agent Provocateur

When I saw the New A.P Collection, there was one piece that caught my attention straight away….

The decadent Thora Dress … I literally fell in love. It pulls on all the right strings for me- hourglass, buttons, three qualter sleeves, red silk, secretary-esque, and unashamedly, undoubtedly, brazenly feminine. So before I’d barely even set foot in Harrods this week I was rushing to try it on for size and see if it lived up to my expectations….

Beach Bunny Loungewear

So today Beach Bunny launched their new Loungwear Range here

It really does scream Beach Bunny all over, they follow in the footsteps of Victoria Secrets when it comes to redefining tacky. Some of their swimsuits I do, quite frankly, find appallingly trashy. And others I can barely contain myself from booking a flight to L.A and spending all my life savings in store. (admittedly that wouldn’t be all too much me being a student and Beach Bunny being around £150 per tiny little laced bikini )

But I LOVE the print they have used. I think its gorgeous, its like a new candy bright leopard-print and floral futuristic hybrid. It really works. And as I say some pieces may be questionable, I think it’d be hard not to look and feel sexy just lounging around in most of these pieces. Can’t wait till they follow in V.S’s footsteps and come to England!!!!!

Absolutely perfect 🙂 x

Save Spend Splurge- Understated Elegance

Save :  £26  La Sezna CLAUDETTE SILK CREAM, Available in Sizes 32A-38E

I am honestly surprised to like a La Senza bra as much as I do this one. Elegant, classic and chic it hasn’t skimped on trims to meet the low price. And while there is no lace applique- it would make a brilliant T-Shirt bra. Available up to a 38E which is promising, also.

Spend : £53 Rosy Vintage Champagne Bra  Available in Sizes 32A-36D

A Blend of contemporary smooth molded cups with vintage styling and colours, this really is a delicious bra. I adore the jade version as well!

Splurge : £399 Carine Gilson Available in Sizes 32A-36D

One of the most delicate and stunning bras I have ever held. It really is like holding a treasure in your hands, completely lined in sumptuous silk satin, its so fragile, like holding history in your hands and yet gives such fantastic shape. It feels like golden butter on your skin, and so well made without a single detail over looked. Well, you’d be pretty pissed off if there was for £399, I suppose!

Don’t let the world change your smile- let your smile change the world.

Today was the perfect day to run errands and go for a girly lunch in town, all sunny and breezy. I had some stuff to grab for work, (stationary goods ready for a big presentation looming up, not that I’m complaining- there is something so endlessly satisfying about shopping for stationary ha!), along with lots and lots of boards to get ready. I was in an irritatingly good mood so I I popped on my Gossard Dotty bra. Which I wasn’t draw to at first, but after having seen it again and again I kept thinking how cute and soft it looked. Once I tried it on it really didnt disappoint, plus is gives amazing shape- without any padding in ! The bow in the centrefront as well is a really nice touch as its unique and quite honestly makes the bra ! The mint is also really vibrant and sweet, so to make the most of it I matched it with a pink lace leotard I made last year.

I also got caught up in the horror of the london riots. I dont want to add my two cents on the internet, as I have out ranted myslef in real life already 🙂 but I do have this to share:

I’m heading to London tomorrow to get ready for a big trend talk at work, so I will see the devastation even closer.
