I don’t particularly like to do year round up posts as I don’t celebrate New Year in the proper sense.
However 2012 did see my fashion loves and hates change, as well as my own personal style.
It probably wasn’t as drastic as I imagine but it did see me write my first ‘style evolution’ post.
I guess that means it was big enough for me to notice, and maybe you guys did too.

As for the end of 2012, well that saw me going back to more simple, smart casual outfits.
That was mainly due to my new job, and it did see me leave my love of urban style behind slightly.
Even so, I still tried to mix it into my outfits whilst staying warm for Winter and unique in my own way.

I’ve had an amazing year and I’m excited to start 2013 in style!!
I hope to get back to more regular OOTD posts as well as introducing more style related items to the blog.

A Christmas Wish List

Christmas Wishlist



Long sleeve velvet dress, $62 / Velvet skirt / Topshop , $48 / Studded ballet flat, $35 / MICHAEL Michael Kors leather tote bag, $270 / 
Christmas is coming, and you know what that means.
Yep, it’s time for another ‘Christmas Wishlist’ post, sorry guys.
I wasn’t actually thinking of doing one this year but then a friend and the fiancé specifically asked for one, so…I guess you could say that I’m leaning more towards accessories and clothing right now.
There’s the odd bit of homeware thrown in but what surprised me most was the lack of beauty products.
Honestly I couldn’t think of anything beauty related that I REALLY wanted, so I just didn’t bother with it.
Right now I’m just after lots of velvet clothing (and shoes!) and some amazing accents to go with.

The usual offenders are there: Topshop, Marc Jacobs, Regal Rose and Tatty Devine.
I know the MK bag is a bit of a long shot, but hey this is a wish list, and a girl’s allowed to dream.

Regal Rose Darkly Decadent Collection

A selection of items from Regal Rose’s Darkly Decadent Collection

Regal Rose are back with a new hotly anticipated collection, and they haven’t let fans down.
The ‘Darkly Decadent‘ collection mainly draws inspiration from this season’s Baroque and Gothic trends.
That doesn’t mean the items lack any originality though – as always Regal Rose have managed to create beautifully crafted, unique pieces that would easily be the highlight of anyone’s jewellery box…or outfit!
I picked my favourite pieces in the above image, but it’s safe to say I’d happily buy most of the collection.
As a big fan of black & gold, as well as the Baroque trend, these are items I could work into one of my outfits.
If you fancy adding a little goth-glam to your party look this season, or just to your everyday outfits, look no further.

I was hoping to have this post up last Thursday, which was the release date of this collection.
Unfortunately things got in the way, but it’s here now and just as amazing as it would have been then.
I just hope you haven’t seen too many similar posts, because I’m sure that I’m not the only one in love with this.
