Ti penso ogni giorno

Dress*- CHICWISH / Belt- TOPSHOP / Necklace -HM / Earrings- RIVER ISLAND / Heels*- FASHION UNION 

Hey guys, back with another Sicilian Dream like photos. I found this little location near my house, they have painted the walls white and its taken away that old ruined building look to it. Which is a shame because it was a beautiful, they are probably planning on extending the shop, so this area won't be around for long. That's why I've taken photos here today, but in front of the rubbly bits which makes it look more effective with the dress. I can honestly say I love Chicwish for Vintage Lacey dresses unfortunately this one has sold out, but there are many more pretty ones left here.  The arms were a bit baggy on me but I think that is how its meant to be. It reminds me of the dress Kate wore for the 'Dolce' perfume ad here. It was a beautiful afternoon, the golden hour, where the sun is luke warm and sparkles through the trees. I matched the dress with these super high heel platforms from Fashion Union. Which are fabulous but for my little skinny legs, hard work to walk in. They are really high and I couldn't wear them on a night out but they look great in photos and make your legs look long. The belt looks similar to the Dolce & Gabbana catwalk version, although this is a headband, it was far too big to be a headband it kept falling off. So I managed to squeeze it on and stretch it to fit around my waist. It was in the Topshop sale which is a bargain considering if I wanted a D&G one it would be over £100. Anyway have a great week!!

Lots of love,

Dress*- OASAP / Sunglasses*- ROMWE / Belt- PRIMARK / Earrings*- OASAP / Necklace- HM / Sandals- NEW LOOK 

Heya guys sorry this post is a bit late I've gone away for the weekend to do some photography jobs. I found this old building in my hometown and knew straight away it would be a perfect setting for this Italian style dress.  I paired it with some blue cross earrings which are from OASAP and are nice and light to wear. I've bought some earrings recently and they pull on my little lobes and I feel like they are going to rip. Whether these are cheaply made or not the weight of them makes them favourable for an everyday wear outfit. The material of the dress is my favourite its quite structured and stays in shape through the breeze. As a Lady one is always quite conscious of her skirt being blown up and undergarments on full view but I felt secure in this. It's a basic shape for all body types and very flattering to the female figure. I'm forever on the hunt for the perfect gladiator sandals to match my Sicilian themed outfits, if you find any let me know!

Anyway this day was rather lovely as I met a local photographer who gave me his business card, spoke to two ladies that wanted me to photograph events for them. I'm starting to get that motivation for work now and I'm finally gaining some self respect and learning to stay focussed and not get distracted by that dumb boy, even if he smells good that you just want to jump on him and eat him. Anyways have a great weekend!
Lots of love,

Hey everyone, back again and this time to show you girlies the most dreamiest fashion boutique ever, well probably not ever, but from what I have discovered last night. Whilst in my sleepy state of tiredness, thanks to Etail bloggers network I found Darccy. A wonderful boutique filled with cute vintage fashion pieces, its everything I love about fashion, the intricate detailing, floral embroidery, lacing, pearl and beaded embellishment. Definitely pieces fit for a Princess or a Victorian doll, I want to buy it all please.

Lots of love,

Tea for Two

Hey everyone, my brother and I were kindly invited for tea for two at Usk Garden Centre. It was such a cute surprise and just what I needed on a summer afternoon. I've always loved tiered cake stands filled with scrumptious treats, that look too good to eat. This little platter was served with petite sandwiches without crusts, which was lovely to eat, not too filling. Some were of ham and others cheese and the plate was laced with tomatoes and cucumbers, which looked very appetising. I enjoyed the quantity of this afternoon tea. When you reach that time of day where your peckish for something light and yet filling I think this is just what is needed, only for £9.95. There were four tiny deserts to share equally between my brother and I. Of course had the Strawberry and Cream Meringue and the Chocolate Brownie, which was so gooey and moist yummy!  The floral crockery is my favourite thing about this Cafe, its Bone China and the Tea, for some reason tastes beautiful. We bought the same tea bags to try and home but it's some how not the same. Anyway it was a lovely afternoon thanks to Usk Garden Centre and I shall be going there again soon.

Floral Crown- DIY / Necklace- PRIMARK / Lace off the shoulder top- TOPSHOP / Tulle Skirt*- CHICWISH / Purse- RIVER ISLAND / Ballet Pumps- PRIMARK / Bow Belt- PRIMARK / Bracelets- PRIMARK / 

Hey guys, this outfit isn't so much Dolce Gabbana inspired but rather a very country magical fairy style instead. This has to be my favourite of all time, dressing up in big tulle skirts that blows in the breeze, this one is from, of course my favourite boutique, Chicwish. I feel like a ballerina as well. Whilst picking fresh flowers around the Village I put wore them as a floral crown, I need more of them in my life, real or fake, flower crowns are the best accessory for Summer. I recently got this pink purse from River Island after years of having a floral Cath Kidston one. I've got to say its marvellous for cards, coins and notes.

Lots of love,

1.Coin Headband- TOPSHOP /2. Floral Ruffle Top- OASAP  / 3. Gold Coin Necklace- NEW LOOK / 4. Mint Bag- OASAP / 5. Polka Dot Shorts- OASAP / 6.White Sandals- NEWLOOK 

Hey girls and guys, here is a quick outfit wish list I put together inspired by the new Spring/Summer, 'Dolce' Fragrance by Dolce Gabbana that you have probably already guessed I'm infatuated with. I spotted this floral ruffle off the shoulder top on OASAP and knew I wanted to make an outfit from it, I matched it with some polka dot shorts inspired by this runway outfit here. The clash of the polka dot print and floral works so well together, how did I not think of this before.

Fiore Bianco

Dress*- CHICWISH / Belt- PRIMARK / Necklace- H&M / Earrings- RIVER ISLAND / Sandals- NEW LOOK 

Hey guys, I like how I am on a summer blogger roll right now, posting almost everyday. Well need to beat that ultimate 17 posts in June 2012, that was a golden year of blogger. I was so dedicated that I didn't even think twice about taking photos, oh its too nice to take photos, or I'm too tired, I just woke up and would shoot everyday. Anyway this dress I got about a month ago from Chicwish, unluckily it has sold out now, perhaps my fault for taken ages to post it. But when I take photos I always love my photos to look almost like mini editorials, you can probably see I pay attention to the foreground and how it has to match my outfit and theme to the style. These photos were taken in my other neighbours garden,  they have a lovely arch way with benches and terracotta vases and large pots, which I think looks foreign, almost like I'm in Italy right? I can dream on... Even though I haven't travelled very far outside of Wales, I bring cultures and countries here and try to experience the best I can with music and similar foods. This dress has superb fit and I am loving white dresses at the moment, they portray purity, elegance and beauty. Also they are very flattering to all skin colours. Hope you guys are enjoying this beautiful sunshine.

Lots of love,
