BooHoo Blogger Challenge

To celebrate making it into the top 10 fashion money saving websites, the folks at fashionvouchers have set a blogger challenge and I've decided to take them up on it. The challenge is to find the best outfit for £50 or under from, and if you win, you will get £50 Boohoo vouchers.

This challenge was quite exciting for me because i don't think I've ever shopped at Bohoo and it was interesting to see that they have quite a lot of fashionable and on trend items at ridiculously affordable prices.

In putting my outfit together, i didn't just want to pick out stuff that i thought would win, i wanted things that in reality, if i did have that amount to spend, i could actually see myself wearing and buying.

Cardigan : £25 (key Autumn Piece)
Knitted Dip Back Hem top : £12 (still warm enough to show a bit of skin)
Panel Body Con Skirt : £6
Darcy Nail Ring : £5

Total Entry spend : £48

The Peplum Craze

It seems like every corner i turn, i see peplum, it is a key trend this season and i absolutely love it. It is a piece that literally everyone can wear for any occassion, and it is flattering for both curvy and slim ladies.

One of the things i love the most about peplum is it's versatility, the flow between formal to casual, exaggerated to a 'touch of pep', sexy to sohpisticated, with peplum you can do anything and go anywhere.

Here is how I've worn my peplum bits in the past and a few peplum pieces available from high street stores and online.

Are you guys sold on peplum? does it have the yay or nay factor for you?

A/W Pick : Statement Necklaces

If there is a key item that should be part of everyone's A/W wardrobe this season, it is statement jewellery, and in this post i have decided to focus on necklaces.

I love jewellery and nothing takes an outfit to the next level like a statement necklace. If your having one of those days like i usually do, where I can't find anything to wear in my wardrobe but  all black or neutral colours, a bold or bright coloured neck piece will instantly transform your look from drab to fab.

Here are few pieces i have picked out that i love, best of all from an affordability standpoint, there is something for everyone out there, from high street to designer, so you don't have to break the bank to get the trend.

Currently i have my eyes on a few pieces from MAWI, they make absolutely fabulous pieces, but for now my cravings can be satisfied with anyone of the pieces below which are all gorgeous.

Zoe Jordan SS13

This collection for me is effortlessly chic, dressed up but dressed down. Increasingly, I am seeing ladies opting to dress down their looks by putting on a facecap and just generally looking stylish without looking like too much effort has gone into the look.

Zoe's SS13 collection is bold, sexy and trendy, i can definately see celebrities, fashionistas and everyday ladies wearing this collection next year.

 Celebrities and Fashionistas turned out in force to support Zoe's new collection, FROW snaps below
