This Weeks Must Have…. Crochet!

I am loving Crochet at the moment, it is perfect for Summer, Festivals and it can be dressed up or down. It is also a great way to add a feminine touch to your outfit, if you pick the right piece you could end up adding a sexy twist.
This Crochet Skirt is stunning! It perfect for all occasions and I love it paired with a printed cropped top.
Massimo Rebecchi featured Crochet in his Spring Summer 2012 collection, they styled it with bright colours and clashing prints and it looks great! Let’s go and get our Crochet on!
 

I shall be wearing mine oversized, white, in vest top silhouette, with frayed vintage denim shorts and bright wedge block coloured sandals. All topped off with a Summer tan! Fingers crossed.

This Weeks Must Have……. Friendship Bracelet

Ahh the hours I spent as a kid making my own friendship bracelets, I would sit patiently knotting different coloured threads together so I could wear and give to my friends, I often gave them out at primary school when it was one of my friends birthdays. The brighter the better I always thought and I didn’t really mind what the pattern was, and I find myself still going with this ethos. I am currently the proud owner of 3 friendship bracalets, even though techincally i bought them so theres no friendship involved. I am not the only one bring back the 90’s fashion accessory of choice they are in shops everywhere! So if you don’t have the time/patiences to make your own here are my favs.
1. A lavish treat for your wrist these beautiful bracelets don’t come cheap at £59, but they are very pretty and the packaging is just as stunning as the bracelets themselves.

2. At the opposite end of the price spectrum we have a purse friendly £2 friendship bracelet from Topshop, with £1 going directly to Breast Cancer. Amazing cause and beautiful bracelet.
3. For the more mature friendship bracelet this is perfect. The colour is great and I love things that are delciate with my a inital on, it is also only £6, bargain. Availble from Urban Outfitters.
5. If you are wanting to make your own though you can pick up the thread from any habidashery or art store and just start knotting or plaiting. Have fun.
