Party wear with Farfetch

So the other day I was contacted by Farfetch about entering a competition with them, all  I had to do was plan my perfect designer party outfit. I mean – it’s hardly a task when it’s something I pretty much do all of the time anyway! I’m quite a simple dresser and generally prefer to go for things with an interesting cut or texture rather than bright, more showy items! So I’ve gone for a black, white and gold outfit with plenty of different textures. I had far too much fun doing this! Please can I have the outfit now? If you feel like treating yourself I’ve added the links below:

Feeling Festive in Red

Let me start this post by saying red is definitely not a colour that I would consider as being my colour. When I chose this jacket from Shein I was expecting a burgundy coat with cream fur as photographed here. I have to be honest here and admit that when I opened the package I was more than a little disappointed that it didn’t quite match up to the photographs on the internet. As a lover of neutrals I definitely would not have chosen a red coat! Anyway, pushing this minor issue to the side, I’m actually pleasantly surprised with how well the photographs came out to show that, actually, is a red coat really the worst thing in the world? Obviously if it was the same price as my Zara one I would have been outraged but it wasn’t, it wasn’t even half, it was a fraction of the price! The sort of price that, who cares if you only wear it once?      To be honest, looking at these photo’s I’m thinking I look good, and yes, I will be wearing it again! So it’s not what I was expecting, hey ho, build a bridge and get over it! It’s super warm and cosy and it’s also pretty perfect for this time of year! I mean, what colour is more festive than red? For this look I decided to keep it pretty simple, with such a loud coat I thought I better play down the rest of the outfit and let the coat do the talking!   What do you think to my red coat? Is it making you’re eyes hurt or are you thinking like me, it’s pretty festive and when did a little red coat ever do any harm? Let me know what you think!

How to shop using Instagram

I remember when I was younger (yesterday) wishing that everything I liked on Instagram would just appear in my wardrobe and be mine. Well people, I’m here with a very important message – it can! kind of. Last week I was accepted on to the Reward Style programme, it’s basically an affiliate site which as I explained before means if you buy something that you’ve seen on my blog, I get a small percentage of the sale – everyones a winner. They also have an app, well not so much an app as a programme? which works with instagram, now this is where it gets interesting. How it works is that you follow their instagram account @liketoknowit and register at www.liketoknow.it and it literally does what it says on the tin, you like to know it, what I’m wearing that is. Put simply, I share a photograph, you like it, you then get an email with direct links to the product’s I’m wearing sent straight to you’re inbox. You can literally like a picture and buy what’s featured within minutes. This could be dangerous! You never have to ask where something’s from again! Once you sign up you’ll start to realise just how many people are signed up to this and how amazing it can be! You can thank me later!

Feeling Girly with Gemporia

I was pleasently surprised earlier this month when one of the girls over at Gemporia got in contact with me about a possible collaboration. I know what you’re thinking, where’s the gems then? Well despite the name, they do have a wide range of jewellery, not just gems. I chose this lovely little silver beaded bracelet. I love the infinity sign and thought it was so pretty and delicate. When I got the parcel and opened it my Mum said it was the women’s empowerment sign, no Mum it’s the infinity sign. Obviously then as any normal person does I went on google to look up the meaning of the infinity sign – she was right, it symbolises eternity, empowerment and everlasting love with some companies using it as a symbol of women’s empowerment. Knowing the meaning behind it makes me love it even more!My new pearl colour correcting pearls from Avon came on the same day as the bracelet so naturally I did a pretty girly shoot, I couldn’t resist having a play around with them! I’ve actually been using them for a few days now and I’m not 100% sure on what I’m supposed to do so any help and guidance you might have would be gratefully received! At the moment I’ve been dusting them over my foundation before I use my bronzer, I’m guessing they’re meant to help with keeping the make up on all day like a loose powder, also helping to get rid of red patches and give a more even complexion? Well that’s what I’m hoping they do anyway!  I love how pretty and delicate it is! It looks so pretty laid out with my new marble case from Madotta. Get ready to see a lot more of this, it’s my new favourite thing so I’m getting it in wherever I can!

Double Denim Loving

Can we just take a minute to appreciate my hair in this photo? I think it’s my favourite photo of me ever for the pure fact that my hair looks like a genuine mane of golden, thick lusciousness. I only really discovered double denim a few months ago, I guess it happened the day I found the perfect denim shirt seen as my standard uniform is jeans, naturally double denim became my thing. I love how it looks with the crochet top underneath, it breaks it up a bit. It also gives me the opportunity to wear this beautiful Nana Judy top which I thought would have to be put to the back of my wardrobe till Spring, everyones a winner. I love this shot so much, I would say it’s probably one of my favourites since me and Alex first started taking photos for my blog together. There’s something about the angle and the way the door frames the picture that I just love! These photos were taken in a half hour slot between it chucking it down and pouring with rain so it was actually a pretty speedy shoot! I’m not gonna lie, I did worry about looking like a cowboy in these boots – not that looking like a cowboy is necessarily a bad thing? maybe it is? Sorry if you’re a cowboy and you’re reading this – no offence. I got these from Public Desire because I was instantly drawn to the shiny toe caps. I have a genuine problem when it comes to buying black ankle boots, I’ve got far more than I would like to admit and the differences are not all too obvious.  *Watch :  Abbott Lyon ( use code SINEADAL25 for £25 off your order and free worldwide shipping until 13th November)My phone is generally surgically attached to my hand, I don’t feel bad about it now that I’ve got the most beautiful phone case in the world. Literally a bloggers dream, a pastel marble phone case, Madotta have struck gold and it’s the perfect accessory – it goes with every outfit! Watch out for my claw hand!!! I don’t know if you can see it here (or below) but I’m wearing one of the beautiful bras from my sisters lingerie line Elcy Clothing. Bras like that are meant to be seen, when you’re wearing a crochet top you can’t go putting you’re comfy bra on you need something pretty and lacy! What do you think to this look? I’d love to hear you’re thoughts! I tell you what else I’d love! For you to head on over to Bloglovin’ and give me a cheeky follow, only if you like my blog of course!
