My day off

I wore this to a pretty pointless day. On my day off (when I had lots of little errands to run), my mum dragged me (literally) to one of her friends house (the most boring woman ever). I was stuck there for a few hours and my thinking was if I was going to die of boredom, I might as well look decent doing it. It also gave me the opportunity to try out my new bag and bracelet.

My shoes are from Priceless and my dress's label is Tsogyal (???). I haven't heard of them either, but I saw the dress in a local little shop and loved it.

I still don't know if I like this dress better with or without the belt. What do you guys think?


So, the new bag and bracelet:

The bracelet was kindly sent over by Munique, who specialise in handmade jewellery and bags.

The company was founded in 2007 by Arline James-Thomas (who is absolutely lovely) because of the demand for more unique accessories for women who want to stand out and be unique. The bracelet really is unique and funky. Its made really carefully, with beands and safety pins. My dad, who loves seeing how things are made, was really impressed. It was clearly made with a lot of effort and it looks really good. Its so different from anything else I own. I think its obvious in my outfit pictures, that the bracelet stands out. If you want something to make you stand out from the crowd, I definitely recommend this!


Also, check out Munique's blog here.












Thank you to Munique for the 2 pictures above.
















And this bag is now a personal favourite of mine. Ted Baker recently had a competition and I won!! They revealed a clue a day for a crossword and, from the shaded boxes, you had to figure out what the prize was. I was so happy when I found out I'd won this bag! I adore the colour!

The bag is called 'Violete' and its a leather clutch bag, with a detatchable chain strap.

P.S. Cringing at bad hair. And apologies for the awful settings on my camera. Dark days mean that all pictures come out awful!

P.P.S. We just found out about a cool event taking place in London and Manchester. Skinny Cow are teaming up With Kelly Brook and are hosting a very bis Charity Swap shop, with all funds going to the Marie Curie Cancer Trust (a charity close to my heart!)

Many celebrities will be donating their clothes, such as Sarah Harding. All you have to do to get an invite it become a fan of Skinny Cow on Facebook and you will be entered into a draw to attend the events. Even if you don't win the tickets, there are lots more things for you to win. Nestle will be making a donation for every item swapped by a celebrity.

Love the lace dress... both looks are great. And I love the accessories you used... green is a great choice.

Have a great weekend! xoxo

I love it with the belt, it makes it look a tad bit more girly!

Those bracelets are great! My mum makes handmade jewellery so I appreciate the amount of hard work it takes to make each piece.

Viva La Fashion said...

i'm sorry you were with the most boring woman ever for a few hours. :/

Tori said...

I love the lace white dress! So airy and cute! I like it both ways, but I think I like it without the belt better. (:

Cafe Fashionista said...

I kind of love the fact that you got all dressed up despite the fact that you weren't really doing anything fabulous - always a perfect reason! Love the dress, Sherin; and I prefer it with the belt!! :)

Nina said...

With or without a belt, that lace dress is AMAZING!

S.Elisabeth said...

Ooh that dress is absolutely darling, and I like both looks (with or without a belt)! Oh and poor you being stuck with a boring woman, I'd probably fall asleep!

Tasha said...

sounds like a boring day but u do look stunning! I love that white dress! the detailing on the sleeves and bottom is gorgeous! I like it with or without the belt but I think I like it best with the belt on. also I love the color of that bag and what a fun bracelet!

mom & son said...

oh my haw, how i envied you on winning that bag! I'm a sucker for any shades of green. I love that bag! Can I have it? :-)

Zel said...

i love your lace dress, i think i like it better belted. Great bag too, how lucky you are to win it!

Graham I. Haynes said...

The dress was definitely a great pick up. It looks beautiful on you both ways — with or without the belt. But since you're asking us to choose, I'm leaning ever so slightly towards the belted look ;)

Harriet said...

Such a cute dress - I think it's very Blair Waldorf! I am so impressed at you winning that bag - it's gorgeous. I always think 'oh, I'll never win' and so don't enter competitions that often, but obviously someone has to win so I sohuld probably take a chance more often!

la petite fashionista said...

i love the lace dress-- i think i like it better with the belt to give it more of a defined waist. so pretty on you, along w/ the colorful accessories!

Hannah ♥ said...

You look so, so lovely Sherin! That dress is gorgeous!

This has to be one of my fave of your outfits... Maybe even my absolute fave! Love it :)

I just got a dress from Tsyogal at a vintage shop the other day. It's cute as all get out, but I'm trying to find out more about this label.
