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…

HtCC – Wet Weather Necessities

If your Twitter time line is anything like mine, this week, all you’ll have read is “OMG ITS RAINING AGAIN” or “LOL LOL LOL HOW CAN WE STILL BE IN A DROUGHT LOOK AT THE RAIN” (Don’t understand how we can be in the wettest drought? This article from Channel 4 explains it).

I’ve actually been quite happy about the rain – I bought these short wellies from Primark a month or so ago, but the weather hasn’t been completely horrible to justify wearing them without people giving you a bit of side eye. Whatev, my feet are dry. They remind me of these Mel booties, although I prefer the Primark bow. When the weather was starting to turn horrible a week or so ago, I looked at the broken brolly I was using and quickly placed an order with Amazon for a new one. Thanks to my Prime account, it was delivered the next day – I bought this Susino umbrella* for about £12, and I love it because I like clear umbrellas, its not a dome shape (so I can share with other people!) and it has a button to automatically open. That was exciting when I was 8 and had a little red umbrella, and its not gotten any less exciting as I’ve gotten older.

I’ve blogged before about raincoats, but I thought I’d share some cute wellies and umbrellas, because lets face it, we live in the UK, you need a decent umbrella at the very least.

The Prettiest Dress

Most of the time when I get newsletter emails, I open, look, archive. But then I opened one from Ted Baker.

Just look at it. This dress.* I need this dress, now. I’m even willing to over look that the sizing on Ted Baker is “different” and be happy that I’d be a size 4/5. (Doesn’t that sound worse somehow than a 14/16?)

If this dress could somehow find its way to my wardrobe, I’d be entirely grateful. Ta x
