Celebratory (nearly) 900 Follower Giveaway!

So I know the 'nearly' in the name ruins it slightly, but I'm super close to reaching 900 GFC followers (yay!!) so wanted to get a giveaway started!

I can't even fathom nine hundred people following my blog. It's easy to get used to numbers, but I like to sit every now and again and imagine 900 people in front of me. Thinking that each of those people chose to follow my blog mind boggles me and makes me insanely happy! I so so appreciate each and every one of you (so much so that with each new follower, I always look at their blog, feel super grateful and always say to Jack 'ooh yay I've got a new follower!')!

So to celebrate you lot being amazing and making me feel so happy (nowadays it's easy to get wound up in your own world, and forget to make others smile, but you lot make me happy everyday just from following and reading my little blog), so I'm holding a giveaway full of amazing goodies as well as surprise bits included for the winner! Below you can see what's up for grabs and enter via the Rafflecopter. There are loads of easy ways to enter so there's nothing to loose!

Good luck!!

Boating Life White on White Outfit

Last weekend I spent a few days with my cousin and his girlfriend in their canal boat which was absolutely lovely. We ate amazing food, devoured delicious drinks and sunbathed next to four super cute cats. We also spend a few hours on one of the days in the town centre. I happened to pop into a charity shop and saw this gorgeous skirt for just £2! It was actually from Primark originally but in my opinion looks so much nicer than their usual items. I wanted to give it a chilled, sports-luxe look so paired it with these little daps I got in the F&F sale simply because my shoes were giving me blisters that day!

Shirt and Jeans Combo

Do you ever see those girls on Pinterest who can just wear jeans and a white shirt and look so effortlessly perfect? Yeah, I wish I was them too. I wanted to try the model-off-duty look and this is the closest I could get.

The shirt is from Biba in House of Fraser and it is so light, soft and comfy! I'm not a huge fan of the little diamant├ęs on the neck line but fortunately they've just been sewn on rather than glued so I'm thinking of just unstitching them. Matching with simple skinny jeans, a statement necklace and a big floppy hat gives it a chic edge that I was aiming for.

As for these shoes. Ooooh these shoes! Firstly, just look at them. They're simply amazing. Secondly, they were a massive bargain. These shoes are selling for about £20-£50 at the moment, but I grabbed these babies from Everything 5 Pounds, so yep you guessed it - for just £5!

Why Fashion Software is Important for Young Fashion Designers

i.LEVEL Software is one of the world’s leading fashion software solutions, developed solely for fashion brands. Why was it created? Well, read on…

If you’re an aspiring young designer, initially all you’ll be concerned with is creating your best possible designs and selling them in one or two retail outlets. That will feel like success. It is success. But what then?
 
Either your fashion brand treads water or you broaden both the range of designs and the channels your brand is sold in. You might venture into eCommerce (Amazon, eBay, La Redoute etc), create your own retail shop, go into retail concessions such as Debenham’s Web, or sell wholesale by using wholesale B2B fashion portals such as FashionTradeWeb. That’s all fine.

But how do you manage and monitor the clothing (and accessories) being sold across all your various sales channels? How do you keep tabs on your fashion stock inventory? How do you compare sales in one store versus another, or one website versus another? It’s almost impossible.

That’s why i.LEVEL was born, to eradicate the need for Excel spread sheets and late nights slaving over a computer working out which garment was sold where, which lines need discounting and which size range is set to become sold out with no replacements lined up! Instead, i.LEVEL’s fashion software offers a single customer view that shows you what is being sold, when and where – and it’s fully automated.

The video below is a two minute introductory overview of i.LEVEL’s fashion wholesale software. Take a look and, afterwards, if your brand needs to take a more professional approach to fashion stock control, fashion concessions and even fashion EPOS software, then contact i.LEVEL Software on 01234 761757 or email info@ilevelsoftware.co.uk.

Winter Princess Dress

As I'm only 21 years old, not engaged or planning on getting married any time soon, I haven't had the opportunity to try on wedding dresses yet. I have to say though, this amazing dress from Little Black Dress completely feels like wearing one! Either that or a winter princess. Or even a glamorous ghost seeing as it's not far off Halloween. Either way, I feel amazing when I wear this and have already found a perfect occasion to wear it.

Sadly though I do have to say, I'm only about 5,5" and it's a little short for me. I mean obviously not in the showing-your-bum way as it's a maxi dress, but personally I prefer maxis to just miss the floor when I wear them. This one does do that if I don't wear heels but to me this is a dress that screams out GO FULL GLAM and I think heels are a huge part of that. So just be aware when buying if you're taller than me!

Despite that though, this dress is simply perfect! The detailing on the top and tiny pom poms on the body just make it!
