Firetrap Sale at Brandalley

I have expressed my love for Brandalley before, but if you’re not familiar with the website, it organises flash sales and it’s a great place to find designer items at a lower price.

Brandalley is currently hosting a Firetrap sale, including a range of great dresses, most of them now around £20. Hurry though as the Firetrap sale ends this Sunday 23rd October. (Remember you will need to sign up before being able to access the sales or any of the links in this post)

My two favourites:

Firetrap Grunge Black Red Stripe Midi Jersey Dress

This dress is perfect if you’re looking to work the current grunge revival trend. I have ordered this one and will be teaming it with a black leather jacket and black leather biker boots.

Firetrap Black Embellished Ethnic Halterneck Maxi Dress

This dress is so effortlessly stylish it hurts. The way it drapes around the model’s frame is perfection and the embellishment at the neckline gives it just a little bit of edge that makes all the difference. Now, the weather might be a little too chilly to wear this dress right now, but it won’t go out of style and you’ll be wearing it all summer.

July Challenge of the Month – Look 3

Cute Feminine Casual Summer Look by Clothes, Clothes, Clothes! Challenge of the Month

There is a lot going on with this pair of shorts – big pockets, turned up hems, stripes, and a big bow! – so I chose to go for simple pieces to compliment it. There was also the issue of it being described as Mint Ticking Bow Stripe Shorts on the Miss Selfridge website – surely “mint” means green, but they look pretty grey to me! So just to be on the safe side, I chose a colour palette that would flatter either colour.

I started by adding a simple white vest but to keep things interesting, chose one with some subtle embellishment – the macrame detailing teamed with the braided straps of the gladiator sandals help create a bit of a relaxed bohemian feel, and so I decided to push it a little further by adding accessories that clearly take their inspiration from India. The result is a cute, feminine, casual summer look that will look great against a tan.

No Shortage of Cuteness

Shorts, Hotpants and High-Waisted Shorts by Miss Selfridge

Please excuse the terrible pun, but I couldn’t help myself after all the ooh-ing and aah-ing sounds I made looking at Miss Selfridges’ excellent range of shorts.  There’s a little bit of everything from denim hotpants to retro high-waisted shorts in a wide range of colours and prints – animal, polka dots, flowers, stripes. And lots and lots of bows! So whether you want to rock a retro pin-up look or tap into nautical, utility or rock chick trends, I’d recommend you take a look at the following little numbers.

Sexy Nautical Dress by Modcloth

Wowza! is the first word that came to my mind when I came across this dress on ModCloth. This figure-hugging little number is incredibly sexy on top of being absolutely adorable. If you dream to be a retro pin-up, this is definitely the dress for you, but hurry up; the dress has already sold out once.
