I hope you all had a fantastic easter weekend !The weather was surprisingly warm so instead of cleaning up my semi-abandoned garden I decided to escape from the traditional Easter duties, packed my bag with five chocolate bunnies and my tireless camera and headed to one of my favourite locations to shoot a few looks for you. In today's post I want to introduce my readers to an online company that sell stunning statement jewellery - http://www.adorn-accessories.co.uk. These guys offer a fantastic selection of bracelets, ring, earrings and neckless which will appeal to the pickiest fashionista. When I received this beautiful statement necklace  called Peppermint Party I knew straightaway that this chunky masterpiece would hold pride of place in my jewellery collection. I styled my look so that my new neckless would stand out - my glamorous green "Chanel "style jacket from Zara in combination with sun and leaves helped highlight the beauty of it resulting in a magic explosion of green! An ideal addition to the jacket is my holographic lips clutch by Henry Holland. It reminds me of Lulu Guinness iconic lips clutches but looks more funky. My limited edition Manchester Vogue Night Out  t-shirt is from Harvey Nichols, you must have noticed from my previous posts my obsession with tee's with slogans. Oh, and the heels.. These ones I got in Zara Madrid on sale for 10 euro ! Yep, 10 euro! Zara in Spain is a mecca for the local fashionistas, the product range is much wider there while the prices are cheaper, so unfair lol!
I'm starting a " fashion detox" after the #MCRFW weekend (you can check my dairy  HERE ) so see you my lovely readers next week in my next post!

This is MFW Part 2,  you can catch up with the first one HERE . Day 2 and my fashion adventure continues! Saturday was a full house and everyone could not wait for the show to start, the night where online high street and indie fashion were destined to share the catwalk promised to be hot. The first collection was presented by Sofia Dourvari, one of my favourite designers. I was blown away by her gorgeous leather pieces and beautiful detailing on the skirts. The next collection by Florina was inspired by none other than Mother Nature and we could literally feel the smell of flowers when the models were "floating" before us - the outfits were made from real plants and grass!  Didi- online boutique from Altrincham - along with another trendy online fashion company OMG Fashion showed us their great capability of maintaining their unique style standing strong on unsteady ground of online high street fashion - they were elegant and sophisticated. A very successful " reincarnation" of a classic leather jacket was carried out by Boda Skins -  worn on naked torso their " state of the art" pieces looked stunning... and extremely sexy! After Shock's collection of gowns took us on a journey from Romanticism to Jazz era with its luxury, elegancy and extravagance. 
In my next post I will cover the third and final day of MFW, see you soon!

Woohoo! Hello everyone I'm writing today about three unforgettable days I spent at the most important Manchester fashion event of the year - #MCRFW. As an official blogger of Manchester Fashion Week I was given a perfect seat in the first row next to my fellow blogger Lily from http://lilykitten1.blogspot.co.uk/  so we applied a final layer of our lipsticks and got our cameras ready for a long-awaited fashion feast. I have to say that the place where all this magic happened was simply breathtaking - the Halle St Peters - a grandiose and mysterious building where the past and future entwine. The first day was dedicated to the showcase of  young emerging designers from all over the North West whose stunning collections I was impressed with. First on the catwalk we saw futuristic dresses by Sophie Ho followed by cosmic oversized jackets by Caiti Betterton, Lucy Cowan' s skirt with photo prints was a real showstopper while pastel 3D outfits designed by Helen Colville  and unique textures from Leah Jones showed a great talent with a lot of potential and promising future for the creators. Emily Shaw and her knitted avant-garde pieces were amongst the main highlights of the showcase and drew huge attention, she was definitely my favourite designer of the day.
Taking the opportunity I would like to thank everyone who helped make these fantastic days happen-  organisers, interns, models, bloggers and of course this year's sponsors - online fashion company :http://www.5fashion.co.uk/
I knew I'd be tired and exhausted by the end of the show so decided to wear something comfortable: a very rare jacket from Primark, PU pants from Zara, shoes also from Zara.
Manchester fashion week showed once again a great taste, creativity and experimental spirit of the city and whole North West region presenting some incredibly talented designers whose names I am sure will soon be heard in the biggest capitals of the fashion world.

Love Heart Swing Dress from Laundry Boutique

Hey, hey! How are you all? Excited about Easter Weekend? Me too, especially because it coincides with Manchester Fashion Week! Today I'm blogging about an amazing clothing company with multiple boutiques around UK called http://www.laundryboutique.co.uk/, they will be showcasing their collection on the Manchester Fashion Week runway and I am sure will create a stir among fashion lovers with their elegant and sophisticated designs. The lovely team at Laundry Boutique has kindly sent me this fantastic dress to shine this weekend. Being a huge fan of heart print, that was love from the first sight.This Burgundy long Love Heart Swing Shirt/Dress is incredibly stylish. Moreover, it's very soft and you get that pleasant silk feel when wearing it. As we are having a bit of a heat wave here in Manchester, I took this opportunity and shot a few sunny/summery looks fo you to get inspiration for your holiday wardrobe.You can wear this piece with skinny jeans and even shorts .The classic 2.55 Chanel and leather jacket give this shirt kind of an edgy look. Lets talk about shoes now.Well, I visited my favourite http://www.stevemadden.com/ shop and found these beauties. They look so different from other platforms on the market and.. yes I do have similar ones in my Steve Madden collection, but in silver. What can i do? I just have an incurable obsession with this guy..A girl can't have enough shoes!  Thanks a lot for reading
See you all soon!

Dress from OMG Fashion SS14 Collection

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous whole week and the sun shone particularly brightly this morning when I literally pulled the parcel from http://www.omgfashion.com/ out of the scared postman's hands, next step - to style my new outfit and shoot it! Oh my god fashion is a young, vibrant and very promising online fashion company from Manchester. I've been lucky to get invited to their press party at Milton club a month ago where I met the owners and, enjoying my mojito, looked through their new collection which I immediately fell in love with. The quality and design of the clothing were impressive and you can imagine my happiness when I was offered to choose two pieces from their fantastic SS14 collection!
I have opted for two perfect summer dresses. As I'm a massive fan of red check I just had to have this Celine "inspired " dress. I paired it with Warehouse trench and classic Mulberry Mitzy bag. You can style this dress both ways - as a going out outfit  (with clutch and hight heels ) and also as an everyday option as I did just adding my favourite Mitzy and Steve Madden platforms. I can't wait to get away to sunny Spain in a couple of weeks and rock my look there as well. Fashion week is coming to Manchester next week where you can catch up with http://www.omgfashion.com/ at their showcase on the 19th of April . For  more info about Manchester Fashion Easter Weekend please visit http://www.mcrfashionweek.com/ .
See you all in my next blog post my lovely readers!
