Millie ‘n’ Mae Boutique – Brown Vintage Carriage Scarf and Tan Brown Leather Bracelet Promotional Present with discount code*

A long time ago I came across a very sweet and unique boutique called “Millie ‘n’ Mae” and I loved this online boutique because it seemed to sell such quirky and cute things! I emailed them and asked to do a blogging promotional exchange and they happily agreed, so lucky me I got to review two of their beautiful items from their online store here on my blog for all your lovely followers to enjoy!

The boutique sells items such as necklaces and bracelets as well as scarves and other various fashion fun pieces, if you’re looking for a signature piece to complete your outfit then I suggest taking a look here! Not only is the service incredibly fast and friendly, they made me feel more than welcome and were happy to always help! I excitedly received my parcel in the post from “Millie ‘n’ Mae” and took a peek at the treasures inside, I had chosen to review a brown vintage carriage scarf made of 100% polyester and a lovely tan leather brown magnetic clasp bracelet.

The quality of these items was good and they really looked lovely! I loved the colours of the scarf as it can be worn with a variety of vests, t-shirts or even dresses and the bracelet looks really exceptionally well made, I love that it has a magnetic clasp as it makes it easier to take off and put on as well.

Overall I would say the whole interaction with the store has been more than pleasant and very jolly which is always great 🙂 Millie ‘n’ Mae were also kind enough to give all my followers a further 20% discount from there already reasonably cheap prices which is utterly lovely of them and I am sure my followers will love to browse around their online boutique!

The discount code is: URBANITE20

There are photos below of the items, but as I am home from university and my usual photographer is not over at the moment I had to take some self shots! Please excuse the camera quality as the real life items are so much more beautiful in real life 🙂

Style Icon: Helena Bonham Carter

Okay so roughly a week ago I picked up the latest issue of Vogue July 2013 and this issue was based around the idea of being ageless, timeless and original. Much to my contentment this months issue had the wonderfully quirky Helena Bonham Carter on its cover! Now if you are unsure who this lady is, let me just give you a nudge in the right direction because she is one of the most prolific actresses and style icons of our time.

Starring in works such as Sweeney Todd (One of my favourite films!), Harry Potter and Les Miserables she is quite well known worldwide. But thinking of her style retrospectively it is clear to see that she has a very quirky and slightly strange sense of style (Not saying that’s a bad thing!) bright clothes and outrageously thrown together accessories and shoes seem to work well for Helena making her style sense unique and different but yet refreshing.

With that in mind, if you have a chance you should pick up the latest issue of Vogue to see her photoshoot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot as it really is quite something 🙂

Style Icon: Emma Stone

We know her from films such as Easy A, The Amazing Spider Man and Superbad but she isn’t just famous for her acting abilities, this actress is also famous as a style icon as well! Emma Stone has on countless occasions appeared on the front and in those glossy magazines we love so much making a debut as a style icon for females worldwide. So I thought as she is one of my favourite actresses I would do a little style icon collaboration post on her wardrobe! Enjoy 🙂

Emma has a bright and colourful wardrobe that is not limited to anything, her style choices represent her personality in many ways and you can see that her generally happy demeanor is aired through her style choices of vibrant pieces with a range of colours and styles.

In the first photo we have Emma Stone wearing a bright flamingo pink outfit which oozes playful yet sophisticated vibes, in the next photo we have Emma modelling a kingfisher blue item of clothing these bright colours show that she is not afraid to be bold and won’t stick to just plain colours such as beige or grey. In the last two photo’s she is wearing a red embellished cocktail dress and black heels and in the other a floral dress, both of which accentuate her figure and complexion. Good choices!
