The Blonde Salad for Superga, take 2!

Yet another collaboration between a blogger and a brand, but this one isn't all that new. Do you remember when I posted about the first The Blonde Salad for Superga capsule collection in July (collection was sold out in less than ten days)? You can read it here. Well, Chiara Ferragni has teamed up with Superga again and this collection appeals to me even more than the last ones, I think it's time I finally go buy myself a pair ;)

Blogger style-off: Song of Style vs Ring My Bell

I was busy scrolling through my daily Bloglovin' email today when I saw something I recognised, Aimee from Song of Style posted a pic of her with a Three Floor Jumpsuit on and it reminded me of a pic that Ashley from Ring My Bell posted the week before. They're both Three Floor! 'Good eye, Cam' *pats oneself on back

Who do you think wore it better? Ashley from Ring My Bell on the left or Aimee from Song of Style on the right?

Pinspiration: Rings and Things

I was looking through my Pinterest boards this morning and I came across 2 rings that I had pinned a while ago that look exactly like the ones I bought from Sass Diva a couple weeks ago. The eye one from Uncovet and the other is from Sabo Skirt.

I am strongly anticipating the 'eye print' trend, I've got a feeling it will be big really soon and I think Dimi from Style Scoop feels the same - she'll be happy that it relates to her Greek heritage.

Do you think you'll like the eye print trend?

Nicole Miller S/S 2014: Versailles Rebel

I have been inundated with blog posts, Instagram images, newsletters, web pages, etc that have been ALL about #NYFW. One show that I really enjoyed seeing the images from was Nicole Miller - check out her full S/S range here.
The range started with floral and stripes (sometimes combined), moved to more colourful geometric shapes, then ended in a monochrome and baroque feel. The hair and makeup reminded me a lot of Dolce and Gabanna's F/W 2013 runway look. What are your thoughts? Designer to watch?
