30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 17 RAIN

So day seventeen is rain, miraculously in England the weather has been rather sunny the past few days when in fact it’s usually raining! so that made this day in the challenge the hardest yet and I had to think outside the box. So instead of just going in my shower and splashing the water around and calling that rain I decided to choose a photo I took back in November on Fireworks night and explain 🙂

So the idea behind this photo is that the fireworks are the rain in this sense and the colours are bursting out like beads of rainfall 🙂

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 🙂

Make sure you take a look at their home page here: http://millie-n-mae.co.uk/ and they also have Twitter as well so be sure to follow them and show your support for there ever emerging business! https://twitter.com/MillienMae

In return for my review on their shop the owner asked me if I would like to have some complimentary photo’s done as a thank you and also to go on their shop website, I of course agreed happily! So on Friday just before I came home I went and had them done, I chose three outfits and these were the pictures – very happy with them! 🙂

Grab The Great Gatsby Style: Flapper Dresses

With the upcoming release of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel ‘The Great Gatsby’ which is to be released in May there is an air of excitement and thrill. As many of you may know if you have watched the trailer that the movie will be starring famous actors and actresses such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan and that’s not all everyone is looking forward to seeing, many are thrilled to see the glitzy and beautiful fashion trends that rocked the 1920’s, the era in which the novel and film take place in.

I love the 1920’s flapper dresses the most, I like the way they accentuate the women’s curves whenever a lady wore one and the way they compliment the body. They came in a range of colours and styles which makes them the ultimate Great Gatsby piece! Bold embroidery and soft colourful hues make these dresses look irresistible to say the least.

Throughout the Great Gatsby novel and film we as the audience are aware of the apparel of many of the characters and this being a favourite among many women. This Summer many people will be looking to recreate the Gatsby style and flapper dresses are a sure way to go!

Vintage Clothing? Yes Please! – UpStaged Vintage in Leeds

In the heart of the voluminous and vibrant city of Leeds lies a beautiful shop full to the brim of vintage clothing from the 40’s right through until the late 80’s. I love this shop because of the sense of nostalgia and antique about it! So after emailing they kindly agreed to let me use some of their professional pictures so I could do a review about some of their brilliantly beautiful pieces of clothing! 🙂

I love this American Indian jumper/dress! It’s called the ‘Navaho Design Jumper’ and I love how it looks so inviting and warm, yet comfortable and vintage all at the same time. The patterning is bright and eye catching which is always a great aspect of a popular fashion piece, I also enjoy the thrills at the end and the fact it can be worn both as a dress or a jumper and can be combined with leggings or tights to create the individual look you want.

This next one comes from their 60’s range and is called the ‘Bronze Organza Prom Dress’ and I love it! The patterning and material seem to match perfectly and the colour is perfectly flattering, this is a wonderful choice of dress for anyone looking to accentuate their figure.

Lastly I really do adore this dress it’s so colourful and spontaneous! The dress itself is called ‘Pink and Black Velvet Flock Prom Dress’, personally I love the vibrant patterning and clash of colours that go so well and it goes perfectly with tights and the right pair of shoes! This shop has really impressed me with their vintage and unique range of clothing from the nostalgic era’s and I’m more than pleased to write a review for these fabulous pieces of clothing! I suggest to everyone that they take a look inside their shop before everything sells out! 🙂
