Back to the 90s

This is one of those random posts when you get a little inspired by pop culture from the past. After spending summer watching the early seasons of shows from the 90s - Friends and Sex and the City, I thought I would reel back in time and roleplay the fashion of that decade. Aside from the crop tops, crazy patterned shirts and neon, rock-chic really set trend in the late 90s. So I decided to try the look..

Ultramarine Summer

Back after a while...but since we're still in the midst of summer I thought I'd experiment with my New York buys and go bold with it.
I always love playing with prints although I like putting it with a contrasting color that stands out so it looks a little out of the ordinary :)

Pulse and it's Amazing Jewellery!

For those of you who are not aware, which I assume will be most, Pulse is an annual Home, Gift and Fashion Accessorises Trade Show in Earls Court. I was actually there promoting a mobile app developer called Poqstudio but I did get a chance to take a look around...
Here's all the wonderful things I found that I loved! The thing about these trade shows is that the items sold are so unique and different...not your ordinary high street stuff....they are often handmade and one of a kind and I love it! I even bought a few things they were selling at the end of the day :)

Diamonds are Forever

In honour of the Diamond Jubliee Weekend that just passed, I decided to make a summer come back with an elegant and themed outfit. This elegant dress I bought in New York is chic, pretty and salutes British fashion and patriotism in a subtle way. Ironic I know, since most of the pieces are not from British brands or designers but a girl can only try... I hope you all like it, please comment and tell me what you think.

Dress- Macys
Blazer- H&M
Necklace- Topshop 
Shoes- Accesorize
Bag- Topshop

This look is kinda Taylor Swift inspired with the whole fairy-tale theme to it. I've always loved a little sparkle and girli-ness and mixed with creamy colours and ever-green surroundings, it re-creates a pretty disney-like picture.

Haul of America/ Shopping Tips for USA

Okay so I lied. I didn't just go to New York...I also went to Jacksonville to visit some family (as I do quite often). For those of you who don't know (which is most of you I'm guessing) that's in Florida. You'd think if I was going to New York, why on earth would I bother shopping in a town you haven't heard of in Florida? Florida happens to have some of the best Outlet malls in the states, not to mention having huge shopping centers where you don't have to deal with the crowds of 5th Avenue or Macy's.
 Let me let you in on a few little shopping tips for the US;
  • ALWAYS go to Outlet malls, if you are near one, where you can find discounted designers (sometimes extremely discounted) that New York department stores otherwise sell to you at full price telling you it's in season and trendy. And then they give you a **huge** 10% off, making you feel really chuffed for finding a good bargain when actually you've just been conned for a being a tourist.  
  • Check LOCAL shopping malls for bargains and deals first, then go check out the city fashion. I've found in the US, any day remotely significant of something to celebrate is used as an excuse to capitalize on consumerism..So take advantage of that and look for the 40% off 'One day events' *realistically this happens once every week*.
  • If you're staying with family or friends, ask them if they receive any coupons (Cheap, I know but the fact of the matter is; it can save you a LOT). 
  • It's true, american small town fashion can be plain jane and nothing special but you can find really cool stuff in smaller stores that sound less heard of..and don't be scared to buy and experiment with things that are bit outdated or crazy...especially if it's coming at a bargain price
I've saved hundreds of dollars like this over my numerous years of shopping in the USA and I hope they are useful for you too!
Here's all the stuff I bought this time round in Jacksonville and some of it in New York :)
 I mainly bought dresses this time and my main B-day present from the parents :D

From Urban Outiftters; casual yet dressy; doesn't show it's full prettyness until you put it on :)

From Urban Outfitters; edgy and cool; Can be styled in many ways to look dress, girly, edgy or chic

From Urban Outfitters; one word; Rihanna.

From New York & Company **co-incidence**; stylish and workwear-y

Forever21: Bohemian I just need to figure out what to wear it with...

And from New York's Macy's; **I bought all three dresses for $70 that's what I call SALE SHOPPING!!**

BCBGeneration; To add a pop of colour to my summer wardrobe (notice the cute peep-cut at the back shown by my Empire State pamplet LOL)

This one is my experimental summer dress so I can play with funky patterns :) I loved the double strappies

Racheal Roy; loove this dress...looks soo chic with the sequins and very in-season for summer..(although this is a bad pic) out for an outfit post with this dress


Thank you mummy and daddy :)

Hope you enjoyed the Haul and Tips! Stay Tuned!

The Golden Girl

It's a been a while, I know but I'm back again! Just got back from a trip to New York and YES! I did do some shopping!! Haul Blog (my first one ever!) to come soon on my US shopping! :)

In the meantime, here's a new outfit post....This outfit is inspired by the Pastels and Shimmer cloth trends this Spring/Summer. It's always nice to find something that's shimmery and wearable during the day...of course you can dress it up as much as you like which is exactly what I did with those 3-inch heels! I added the green and gold belt for a bold pop of colour!
Hope you like and comment :)
