Shop Lust: Style Nanda

I'm not sure how I found Style Nanda but I think it was on Tumblr and I think it is my new obsession! It's based in Korea I believe and is really popular in Asia, with a recent worldwide expansion online. Far from trend ripoffs, the Nanda Made label is all exclusive and the product photos are amazing! That is probably why I have a huge wishlist and I'm very intrigued to find out just what the items are like in real life. So many websites style up items to the maxi nowadays but they may end up being dull stretch polyester in real life!

It may be that sugar pink wall but I love the warm blue of this denim shirt and oversized fit. As I sit at a desk all day, comfort is a big factor in my clothes!

These pinafores are a really cute way to wear camo and not in the expected colours. I like the huge shirts underneath and bare legs with chunky platformed heels, mixing up lots of different shapes.

A lace maxi dress is one of those wardrobe staples that I've never had, although I have about five different black maxi dresses. The added polka dots on this dress give it another unique element.

I just got some dungarees like these in a staff sample sale at Motel and I will certainly be considering wearing them with my Litas, a really oversized shirt and a hair bun, once I perfect the ultimate chic-yet-messy bun. I definitely haven't yet!

The item that I am really considering is this wavy hem skirt, as I really want a pencil skirt with a rounded hem, longer at the back and curved at the front. I wish there was a way to know what it was like in real life though as the fit is too important, and I'm not sure if any orders would mean customs charges too. I'll sit tight to see if a similar skirt comes out on the high street here but the only one I've seen is this ASOS skirt, and I'm not much of a fan of the fabric! Please keep your eyes peeled for me!

Nails Of The Week 26: An Old Favourite and a New Ring

Welcome back to my little corner of the internet! I do not have much to share in the fashion stakes as I am going through a process of spring cleaning my wardrobe and selling anything and everything. I see my wardrobe almost like a bank account and as I don't buy a large amount of cheap, fast fashion, usually I can sell most things on. I only like to wear a dress for a night out a few times too so I sell those on eBay often!

I'm waiting until I've sold anything I know I won't be wearing anytime soon and then I'm going to assess anything new I really need. I've also been thinking about the items I grab quickly to wear on a daily basis and how they can be dressed up even more easily. Say if it is so easy to grab leggings, I can swap those for Riding Pants or high waisted jeans and wear ankle strap kitten heels instead of flats. Both only take the same amount of time to throw on but then you are stepping it up in the style stakes!

As you start selling things, you become quite tentative about putting things back into your wardrobe. If I buy something new now I wonder how much I can sell if for a few months down the line! Topshop items often sell well for example because they are so memorable. This is where accessories enter the menu! A new piece of jewellery can kick a shopping craving and can be mixed and matched with everything, so is a worthwhile buy. H&M does such chic jewellery on a budget and you don't have to dodge past any skulls or crosses usually. I was the ultimate magpie with this ring and for someone who wears so little jewellery like me, it makes enough impact alone. I love anything iridescent!

Also my favourite nail polish of all time made a comeback, W7's Fluroescent Pink 2. The fluro coral is ridiculously hard to photograph but it gets lots of compliments. I'm on a kick for brights as I've had nude nails a couple of times already. Oh the perils and indecisions of choosing nail colours!
