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

Polka Dots

Polka Dots, to me, have always been a little bit naff and a lot of bleeehhhh. I’ve always thought they look cheap and just screamed desperately “oh my god, please look at me- I am retro, I am.”. Untill recently that is. When I saw this photo :

And suddenly the penny just dropped. They are gorgeous, glamorous, timeless, and thanks to Stella McCartney back at the start of the summer, fashionable too. So with my new found discovery that Polka Dots weren’t half as cringey as I had once assumed, I scooped up the first pair of Polka Dot tights I came into contact with.

Luminous

Summer may be over (sob sob 😥 ) but I still have my brilliant staycation to look forward too. What better way to bring some of the fading fluorescent sun into the fleeting moments of cornwall, and make the most of the bright things on offer in store before they get whisked and tucked away for winter!
