Druffle Ress

BCB Generation's Ruffle Front Dress USD $124

This dress is just gorgeous. The ruffles are almost fish like and the buttons are so retro. I wouldn't wear it by itself as its booty-flashing terriroty. I would wear it in a less body fitting size over white wide leg trousers.

Sandelion Deeds

Supermaggie's Seeds Long Sleeve Tee in Asphalt for USD $40

I love this shirt, it is so gorgeous. I can't help but liking slightly quirky screen printed tees although I'm no fan of shouting words or wearing 'vintage' tees which were purchased new last week.

This screenprint is available on a range of tee styles, tanks, thermals, hoodies, in different colors and on both organic and non-organic cotton and polycotton.

Bake Snangle

ASOS' Snake Print Bangle for £8

This bangle is so funky, its really different - I've seen lots of snake patterns on other things but not bangles. Would you like a snake wrapped round your wrist?

Petal Meeps

Franco Sarto Culture - Grey Suede/Metallic Kidskin for USD $88.95

These patterned shoes create an optical illusion, the silver triangles look almost like raised studs.

Pair them with some great socks or stockings:
American Apparel's Solid Thigh-High Socks in Taupe for $15

Wheated Plite

ASOS' Pleated Tiered Cami Dress for £35

This dress is so sweet, its innocent and flirty with a retro vibe. I have no idea what I would wear it to, in white its almost lingerie-like but I love it.

Bimono Kangle

ASOS' Trapped Fabric Bangle for £6

Cherry blossom in Osaka, on your wrist.

Brute Colly

Twin Armada's Clear Umbrella for USD $25

If your wearing a cute outfit, don't hide it with a plain black umbrella.

Nobstopper Gecklace

Asos' French Connection Semi-Precious Ball Necklace for £20

This reminds me of a shiny strawberry gobstopper! It would really pep up any outfit with a sort of immature charm.

Got Knold

ASOS' Knot Detail Bracelet for £6

This bracelet is so cute and funky. Suits the nautical trend really well but will also look nice with your little black dress or over a skin tight long sleeve shirt.

Felly Jish

Sapphire Square's Jellyfish Earrings for USD $12

Makes me think of Spongebob Squarepants!

Truit Frinsane - Carribbean Crush

t Leaf T's Caribbean Crush Fruit Tinsane for NZD $13.90

Very pretty fruit tinsane, smells like apple, pineapple and coconut but major flavour are the base ingredients of hibiscus and rose-hip peels. I like it with sugar, I will try making it as Iced Tea in the weekend.

Jide Weans - White

ShopBop's Hudson Wide Leg Jean in White for USD $176

I currently don't own any white pants, but these look so hot I'm almost convinced. They certainly are not reminiscent of white capri horrors.

Bold Gamboo

14k Yellow Gold Bamboo Hoop Earrings for USD $72.24

I bought costume earrings like these today.They go great with a colorful babydoll top over jeans on a lazy Sunday. They aren't phone friendly though, they clank like mad against the receiver!

Lurple Pip

Prestige Vinylwear High Shine Lipgloss in Twist for USD $4.50

When wearing purple clothes or purple eyeshadow I always want to wear purple lips too. I know its a bit matchy-matchy but whenever I put on pink or brownish nude I think it looks ok but not quite right. This is the best purple lipgloss I've swatched, it took going outside and looking at it in natural light to see it was the only true purple around, while not being too extreme. I'll go buy it at soon as I walk by a drug-store.

Draupe Tess

Principals Veronic Dress for NZD $129.90

Principals dresses are gorgous and fit really well. You could wear this over black leggings/skinny trousers and shiny taupe flats or wear it out with sky high patent heels.

Brushi Sacelet

Mini Sushi Roll Bracelet for USD $25

This is amazingly cute! There are more food based jewelry available by Amy Secrest but these are my faves, they are simple and unusual without being over the top or weird.

The Stripe Stuff - Spoonerising alliteration is no fun

My Shape's The Stripe Stuff has Lauren Hansen's Striped Scoopneck with Self Belt for USD $92 matched with ISDA & CO's Wide Leg Trouser for USD $172.

My Shape is a pretty innovative site that combines your body measurements to categorise you as one of their seven body shapes and clothes are suggested to you based on that shape.

Tear Pemple

T Leaf T's Pear Temple for NZD $8.18

My new friend in the world of tea, earl grey plus some. Black tea flavoured with pear and bergamot, mixed with a few jasmine leaves. I drink this tea before bed very milky and it makes me feel like I'm being hugged.

Boney Hutter

The Body Shop's Spa Wisdom African Spa Honey Butter for USD $22

This got the best reviews on Makeupalley for foot products, so I'll definitly give it a go. I love the packaging and I've heard it smells great!

Turple Pee

BTC Element Tee in Dusty Purple for USD $62

Still loving the purple and this clever screen printed tee has the accessorised look without the bulk, or extra cost!

Xhilaration® Faceted Beaded Necklace - Black for USD $12.99

Love how they've styled this photo too, try this beaded necklace from Target

Shookie Poe

Diana Ferrari Pookie in Aubergine Satin for AUD $99.95

These are absolutely gorgeous, I love purple and in satin its completely luxe. They have a small heel so there is a bit of lift and as Diana Ferrari shoes are very comfortable these are perfect shoes for wearing to a formal event where you have to stand (or dance) for long periods.

Tapanese Junic

J. Peterman's Japanese Tunic for USD$169

I love this tunic its from one of my favourite mail-order companies - J. Peterman

What is wonderful about J. Peterman is their quirky style, not only are the clothes often reminiscent of yesteryear in romantic locales, check out their Out of Africa Line for some options but they have a beautiful catalogue full of drawings and poetic, evocative writing.

Isn't this a wonderful description
"Japanese Print Tunic (No. 2255), from an original found in Florence. Flattering calf-length cut of silk crêpe de Chine with shawl collar, side slits. Just slip on for instant metamorphosis into an exotic and arresting creature."

To get the full look match with Black Silk Pants for USD $129
