HtCC: Ted Baker AW12

Ted Baker* is one of those stores that I always walk past in Quakers Friars but never really go into. After seeing the new lookbook, I think that might have to change. My favourite piece in the new collection has to be the Wrenn jacket, in black rather than the light green (Light green isn’t really a colour I would wear!) I love the shape of the jacket, and it looks like it would suit being dressed up for work as much as it could be dressed down with jeans and a t-shirt.


I’m also a big fan of Ted Baker’s accessories – especially the glittery shoes and clutch bag. The collar necklace in the bottom left is so pretty (although I’d rather have it in silver – I just don’t wear gold) and the iPad case at the top right means my iPad could be more fashionable than me (its not difficult)

Oh, and would you look at that…its pay day! I think I hear Cabot Circus calling my name…

Ring My Bell

I headed to Primark after work last week (a dangerous situation – Primark is right by my bus stop) and found myself in the jewellery section. I picked up the above rings for £2 each (except my favourite, the bug was just £1)

I’m hopeless at accessorising. Its pretty obvious from my outfit posts that I just don’t think about it. I buy bundles of jewellery like this, wear them once and then forget about them. I really need to get better at both wearing make up and wearing jewellery!

How can I get better at accessorising?!

 

(p.s. my giveaway is still open until Friday!)

HtCC: Collared

I love detachable collars. They can change the look of an outfit easily and are quite cheap (compared to buying a new outfit, anyway!). Heres a few I’ve spotted that I think I could wear.

This “antique embellished collar” from Topshop* (£32) was part of their online exclusives, but unfortunately its currently sold out.

I love this Gemma Lister Peter Pan collar* – unlike most of the other collars here, this looks like its more solid so wouldn’t lose its shape. Its also only £31.50 on ASOS* at the moment.

From Urban Outfitters, this crochet collar necklace* (£28) is much softer looking.

If you prefer something a bit more unique, this collar from Loulou Loves You (£45) is gorgeous, and handmade (so you’re unlikely to see someone else seeing the same thing)

Etsy always has so much choice, but my favourite was this studded Peter Pan collar from Girl Can’t Talk (£35) – so different to the other collars above!

If none of these take your fancy, then you can always have a go at doing it yourself – Lucy posted a tutorial about how she decorated some cotton collars or if you can crochet (unlike me!), theres a cute collar pattern here.
