Fashion Focus – A few Outfits from a Busy Autumn

It suddenly struck me tonight that we are now in the final month of Autumn, and I have yet to do a single #wiwt (What I Wore Today) style post.  There have been some reviews of outfits, and also events where I link to what I’ve got on, but a pure outfit post – non, nada, zilch.

So, in order to remedy this I have put together a post containing some of my fave outfits from what has been a very busy Autumn.  Where possible, I have linked to the actual item, or something very similar. There are a couple of party outfits, what I wore to Disney on Ice, and what I wore for Halloween – I don’t do costumes so just tend towards something black and gothic I’m afraid.

There are also a few daytime looks for shopping and footie practice.

Have you been anywhere special recently and wore a special look? Or are you just enjoying being warm and casual at the moment?

Wednesday Fashion Focus

Sometimes I write about fashion to focus on particular trends that I am loving. Sometimes I write about fashion  because I want to discuss the latest celebrity looks, and give you some ideas on how to get them. But sometimes I just want to write about pretty things I would love to add to my wardrobe, and this is one of those days.

It seems that Wednesday may well be the new Friday when it comes to getting a great deal on fashion websites. Today Dorothy Perkins are offering some amazing picks with 24% off for the next 24 hours. I love the idea of wearing the tan t-shirt dress with those fabulous 70s style chunky sandals – just such an effortless look. The red skirt with the zip front will be something that would work equally well in your Autumn/Winter wardrobe – add a black sleeveless polo neck for a minimal 1990s look.

Wallis have long been running Wallis Wednesday, but this now offers the opportunity to pick up a key wardrobe item at a  much discounted price. Today this is focusing on shirt dresses – another wardrobe staple that are perfect transitional pieces. Wallis are also offering a petite version at a discounted price too.

I have also added some of the current top buys from Coast and Phase Eight. Many of the pieces are in the current sale, so you can make a real saving whilst grabbing a great quality piece. The Coast red jumpsuit is just stunning – such a classic look, very Gwen Stefani.

Wallis unveil their latest W Collection

Following on from the success of previous ‘W’ Collections, Wallis have recently unveiled their latest range, and I think it might be the best yet. With an eclectic mix of floral prints and stark black pieces at it’s heart, the collection is a veritable capsule wardrobe that contains pieces that will work well this Spring, and into Summer. A mix and match collection, the hero piece maxi dresses alone could take you from a Summer wedding, a day at the races, or a country picnic with a simple change of accessories.

In comparison to the last W Collection, this is a far more feminine range, the last was heavy on utility styles and darker shades, but this one bursts with pretty jumpsuits, pale pink leather and lace skirts, and those floral prints. It also contains on show stopper of a dress, a Bardot style wiggle dress that comes in classic black and a gorgeous coral/orange shade. Another plus point of the collection are the accessories. I am obsessing over a lime green clutch bag and heeled sandals combo that could be the perfect colour pop for those who like to keep their clothes neutral and add interest through accessories.

If you love the W Collection, you can currently get up to 30% off everything, and free nominated day delivery on orders over £30 (use code NDAY30 at the checkout.)

What do you think of the Wallis W Collection? Have you ordered any pieces from previous collections? I would love to hear your thoughts.
