If you are ever after something unique to brighten up your work clothes or simply want to add a touch of whimsy to your wardrobe, then do pop over to Etsy to see the handiwork of the very talented Emma Morgenthaler of Fairytale Collars. I just adore her creations. From mermaids, to pizzas, she does quirky perfectly! I’ve picked a couple of her gorge collars and a funky little pin that I really should be sporting as a bonefide red lipstick wearer.
There seems to be a wealth of squirrely goodies popping up in fashion and interiors and I for one love it! Our little woodland friends make for cute jewellery and quirky textile prints – here are a few little treats to tempt you – though you might simply want to squirrel them away for keepsakes!
Above is the rather formidable ceramic ring box by Jonathan Adler (my new interior crush). Buy it at Heals for £149
Ok so it’s not strictly a squirrel but oh I do like it! Silk Purse Sows Ear over on Etsy sells these rather lovely vintage acorn charm necklaces for £14 each.
Or how about this rather swish vintage-stamp inspired cushion? Made by Touch Wood Design, it’s one of a series of limited edition makes. I loves it! £68.
Forget crystal and glass or boring old brass. Change your knobs and inject a touch of the woodland to your cupboards and drawers. This beauty is £6 from Anthropologie. Must…buy…
Adieu for now…
How pretty is this dress? I have the perfect red shoes to go with it too – though with this miserable summer, God knows when I would be able to wear it!
It comes from Prodigy Red and costs a very respectable £19! I spotted it on the fabulous MyStreetChic.com (I was responsible for the hair and make-up for their summer fashion shoot) but if you haven’t checked them out before – get over there! They seem to unearth such great items. Love them!
You can always rely on a pair of pretty red shoes to lift the spirits on a Wednesday morning – and aren’t these just peachy? These Chia Mihara Osmo sandals (yes, really!) cost £225 and I found them on a rather nifty little online vintage-inspired boutique called Ruby Plum. Choc full with gorgeous dresses, knits and bags, the only problem is deciding what to keep in my basket!
I have had my eye on this Marianne bag (£130) for some time and may have to start dropping some p-r-e-t-t-y heavy hints soon to the other half. Surely I deserve it?!?!!
As a Bristol based journalist and blogger, I must give a well deserved nod to one of the best up and coming blogs on the fashion circuit: Bristol Fashionista – not only is it sharp, witty and on the nail when it comes to fashion know-how, it is THE place to go to get a good dose of style, Bristol fashion.
If you are local to the Bris, or even if you’re not, check ee out.
