The Co-ord. An item which has been top of my wish list ever since I first laid my eyes on the ever-so matching two-sets. Although the high street (and inter web.) seems to be full of them lately, for me I've never come across a design or style that's been quite right. That is until I spotted this one on boohoo.com. Described as a dose of 70's psychedelia with bright print to match. In addition to being at a price that works out £10 a piece *score*. I was sold. Paired down with a few accessories. It is fast becoming an item which I wished I owned more of. Though I'm sure it will be appearing in "halves" in upcoming outfit posts, fairly soon.

Sometimes there are those pieces which seem to get "lost" amongst the "hustle and bustle" of ones' wardrobe. Never quite knowing when they will see the light of day again. It's a funny thing really. Once a item which you were in love with and therefore wearing at every occasion possible. To becoming one that's merely forgotten-or a new addition to the 'floor-drobe'.
Whilst rummaging through the archives (aka my wardrobe!) I came across this lace number, which was first seen on my blog a while back. It almost nostalgic to look back at that very first blog post (without that infamous hat) and how significant this dress has become. But also to see how both styles (and hair colours) have changed and shifted since then.  That's one of the reasons why I love blogging, as it becomes a "snapshot" of that particular moment in time. One which lasts forever (or until the internet is no more). Yet being one to look forward in life (hardly ever at the past), it thrills me to see what future snapshots will be captured on this humble ol' blog.

The Kimono. It probably comes as no surprise but this humble piece of clothing is one which I've been particularly fond of, as of late. So when my auntie picked up this number (the family are somewhat aware of this obsession, in its floral, fringing glory. It has become one of those statement pieces which instantly adds that special something to a simple looking outfit. Paired with these "be-dazzled" sandals - a duty free Zara purchase. I'm a magpie at heart, and sometimes there's nothing wrong with adding a 'bit of bling' to ones' wardrobe. Even if it is through a pair of shoes.
