Outfit

Hi all. I've been rather absent in the blog world for the last couple of weeks; it feels like so long since I've spent time replying to comments and posting regularly. I've been so busy with work that I've barely had a spare moment. Fortunately I don't mind working a lot as it provides me with so many benefits and a real sense of achievement; more on that soon. But I definitely need to find the time to talk to all my friends here again soon. 

This pretty lace top is the latest addition to my wardrobe. I never expected to buy this piece when the Bella Senora Collection came out at Kitten D'Amour as I thought there would be too much material at the front for it to suit me. However, I decided to try it on a number of weeks after it came out when it came on sale and I completely changed my mind. I loved it immediately and couldn't possibly leave the store without it. It seems a little different from my other tops and it'll go with pretty much anything. It's also very comfortable and warm. So pleased I now have this top. The skirt appears to be a good match with the white base and the touches of black which tie the two pieces together. I purchased the skirt from Forever 21 awhile ago. I only have a few pieces from Forever 21; there haven't been too many items I've wanted to buy there but the ones I do have I certainly love very much. Now finally onto my shoes as they are my favourites at the moment. They are of course another gem from B.A.I.T Footwear. For the last few weeks I've worn B.A.I.T Footwear almost exclusively, alternating between three pairs. They are so comfortable and such adorably beautiful designs. I love the vintage inspiration and in particular the 40s vibe to this pair. I just found out that these shoes come in a variety of glitter shades including gold, silver, pink and blue! WOW! Blue glitter here I come...

Outfit

Hi everyone. Today I'd like to show you my current favourite piece in my wardrobe, my new coat from Kitten D'Amour. I loved this coat from the moment I saw it but I wasn't sure if I could justify purchasing it since it was rather pricey and I already have so many coats. But with the 20% off sale, and given that I couldn't get the coat out of my mind, I decided to add it to my collection. I certainly have a need for coats since I leave early for work and live far away. This coat has the added benefit of being much longer than my others so it will be nice and warm (although I do wish it was ever so slightly shorter). I love the faux fur collar. I don't like an excess of fur like with many of the other Kitten D''Amour coats but this one is just the right amount. This coat is very nice and fitted and I love the silhouette but I'm surprised but how much of a small make it is. I can't wait to wear this to and from work tomorrow. What are your most recent purchases?

Sugar Plum Aprons

Today I have another two beautiful designs to show you from Sugar Plum Aprons. After the fun of creating last week's post it was great to get the chance to do it all again. Both designs are as adorable and stunning as the last two; it's impossible to choose a favourite. It was lucky I had a cupcake dress to pair under the Cupcake Cutie apron as matching is always fun! Sugar Plum Aprons are having a sale at the moment with 25-50% off so there's no better time to head over to the online store and choose out a beauty for yourself.

Sugar Plum Aprons

Today I'd like to introduce you all to Sugar Plum Aprons, the prettiest and most incredible aprons ever. I love the adorable and vintage inspired designs, the detailing of bows, frills and ruffles, the excellent quality and the flattering silhouette. The designs add a whole new dimension to the concept of aprons; I just love how each piece resembles a beautiful dress and can easily form part of an outfit. My favourite is the Snow White inspired apron; such a sweet and creative idea. It reminds me of the Snow White inspired outfit I posted on my blog a couple of years ago here. There are so many uses for these lovely aprons including events such as dinner parties, birthday parties, kitchen teas and engagement parties. It makes me wish I'd had a Super Plum Apron when I had my kitchen tea a few years ago. There is also a children's range so women and children can buy matching sets, how adorable is that! This weekend I had so much fun getting out some kitchen equipment and taking these pictures.

Current Loves

Sportsgirl Fairisle Adventure Jumper
I usually don't shop at Sportsgirl. While I certainly do like the accessories, I've only ever owned a couple of clothing items/shoes from the store. Sportsgirl is not really consistent with my style, the sizing often runs large and the clothes seem rather overpriced in general. So this piece is somewhat different from what you’d usually expect to find on my wishlist. However, I absolutely love it. I tried it on this week at lunch time and it was so warm and cosy. I adore the printed design and it’s good quality. These types of jumpers are so tempting during the cold weather we are experiencing at the moment. I'm always drawn to a sweet 'winter' print such as this; I love my snowflake jumper, bow jumper and red, white & blue jumpers from Dotti which I purchased in previous years. I totally didn't know that this print has a name- apparently it is called fairisle. 


Kitten D'Amour Bella Senora Dress
I've been waiting for the release of this dress after seeing it initially many month ago. It's so perfect..and so pink! The detailing, black & pink contrast, floral inspiration and fit & flare design is all totally my style. I tried it on the other day. It was much longer than I anticipated. I don't usually wear anything below knee length. However, this is so long that it is pretty much ballerina length and I actually think that is very pretty and vintage looking. It's way more expensive that I expected but I do have store credit with Kitten D'Amour so maybe I'll end up acquiring it. It wouldn't be particularly versatile as, despite me being overly dressed up for all occasions, this one would have to be reserved for special events. 

Bella Senora Lace Top (Fuschia)
After having not purchased anything from the last couple of Kitten D'Amour collections, the store is now back on my radar. I'm sure that's partially to do with the fact that the current collection is centered around hot pink. I adore the lace detailing and the bow design. I also love the quality and very fitted structure of tops from Kitten D'Amour. It's very similar to the lace tops from the 'Girl Cray' collection which I purchased late last year and have been my favourite tops ever (green here and red here).

B.A.I.T Footwear Gloria Lace Flats
I have these shoes in red (pictured here and here) and they are my favourite shoes I have ever owned. They are perfect and I can't speak highly enough of them. I adore the lace up inspiration, the vintage vibe and the classy dual colour combination. They go with absolutely everything. I know I'll get so much use from the black pair, as I have with the red pair, that I believe it's worth owning both versions. 

I love Review cardigans; I have them in a couple of different colours but would be so happy to own more colours of the rainbow. I'm very fussy about the quality of cardigans so I usually buy only Review and Alannah Hill; these particular ones are good quality. I often like to customise these cardigans with sparkles, embellishment, buttons and sequins. They are a great basis for a DIY. I especially want the mustard shaded cardigan because I've wanted a mustard piece for years but haven't been able to find the right one. This cardigan is certainly the right one as it's very beautiful. I also adore the pretty shade of pink here. Surprisingly I don't actually have too many pink cardigans so it would be great to add this one to my collection. I'm waiting for them to come on sale because these cardigans often do eventually. 

I recently noticed these adorable flats on both the .B.A.I.T Footwear website and Modcloth; I'm not sure if they are  a new style. They are the sweetest ever and remind me of shoes I used to wear as a small child especially because of the cut outs. This style also comes in both white and black, in addition to this red patent version. I can't decide which pair I like the most. 


What's on your wishlist at the moment?

Outfit

As I mentioned in my post here, I had the best weekend ever when my sister came to stay over recently. I wished it didn't end so quickly. Well...the good news is that we enjoyed that weekend so much that we decided to do it again on the weekend that just passed. I was so happy when I found out! We went shopping again, enjoyed some drinks and watched Netflix! Two weekends in a row was amazing. I wouldn't have coped so well with my husband being away for the past couple of weeks if I didn't have these fun weekends with my sister. My husband will be back next Sunday morning. I was worried about being lonely while he was away but so far I've been incredibly busy and haven't had a spare moment to feel lonely. It was also Mother's Day yesterday. I had a lovely time with the family including my kitty cat Juliette Princess Miracle. We made sushi which turned out well and had the tastiest lunch ever with all our favourites. 

This is one of my favourite skirts ever; I don't see too many skirts like this. The rainbow and polka dot design is totally my style. I've had it for a couple of years now and I posted it on my blog previously here. It's extremely fun because it can obviously be paired with pretty much any colour top. I could make so many outfits involving this piece. The cardigan is also a favourite as the lace is very pretty and the piece is versatile. I also have the blue version of this cardigan and I was able to acquire it for 75% off the original retail price. What a great find. I've been getting a lot of use from my umbrella which I received for my birthday (video here) in the last month as the weather has been crazy and much more rainy than usual. It's much more elegant than most umbrellas and really forms part of an outfit. It's also great quality; in the wild weather in Sydney a couple of weeks ago, everyone else's umbrellas were turning inside out and mine stood the test of the weather and remained perfectly in shape- always a bonus. The ba g is my namesake piece; I bought it because it is called the 'Imogen Bag.'
