Day of the Dead Sugar Skull Accessories by Moxie & Oliver

sugar1

These lovelies by Moxie & Oliver are a fantastic find with Day of the Dead coming up in a couple of months. I’ve seen other sugar skull accessories, but these are certainly some of the best. Each design is made using a very thick, tooling leather, which means that each piece will last you a lifetime. I was very excited when I discovered these. I get very nostalgic when I see sugar skull design, and this is certainly a product that pulled on my heart strings. For more information on any of the products listed here and many more, please visit the Moxie & Oliver website.

Style Crush: The Mini Dress

I’ve been reluctant to try this style for a number of years, but I finally took the plunge a year ago. All I have to say is that I will never look back. I absolutely adore mini dresses. I love wearing them with funky tights or leggings. They are the perfect canvas to layer on accessories. You can dress them up or down, and wear them in all occasions. The possibilities are endless. I love versatile pieces like these. I am only sorry I didn’t try one on sooner. I wore one to my friend’s birthday party this Sunday and I received many compliments. I really wasn’t expecting it as I wore the dress for my comfort on the train. I was happily surprised. Here are a few I am seriously crushing on at the moment.

Fashion Crush: Melissa Plastic Dreams & Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Collaboration

I nearly fell over when I saw these in a window while out taking a stroll in the Lanes this Sunday. Two of my favorite designers have collaborated to create these fabulously funky shoes. I have written about Melissa Plastic Dreams shoes before and I have good news to report. Since then I have tried them on and they are quite comfortable. Additionally, the claim that they smell of bubble gum is very true. Now, Vivienne Westwood has collaborated with Melissa Plastic Dreams to bring us this new collection called Anglomania. Let the girly screams commence.

Style Crush: Sexy Platform Sandals

I have a love hate relationship with high heels shoes. While I absolutely adore the style, and how they make your legs look, I find myself wearing them less and less. It’s mostly because I walk everywhere in the city, and they just aren’t practical while running errands. Brighton really isn’t a car city. Nevertheless, I do wear them on nights out when I know there will be a cab involved. I’m really crushing on large strap, platform sandals right now. They are gorgeously sexy especially paired with some black leggings.

Stylish Summer Scarves

On my first trip to Dublin, I stumbled upon an array of lovely scarves while waiting for the tour bus by Temple Bar. Well, my husband actually stumbled upon them and pointed them out to me. They were absolutely lovely. He really shouldn’t have pointed them out to me. I can’t stop thinking about them now. It’s not really an ongoing thing, but every time I get dressed in the morning I imagine how much better the outfit would look like with one of those scarves. I know I will probably never be in the area again, but I did a bit of online browsing and found some funky alternatives.

Fashion Crush: Sassy Ballerina Flats

I can’t believe I haven’t written about my favorite shoe. I wear them almost exclusively for work and casual days out. They are incredibly comfortable if you purchase the right brand. I have about five different pairs, but they seem to be mostly worn out. I’m currently in the market for some comfortable black and white flats to replace my black pair. I did manage to browse a few sites today where I managed to find a jack pot of fabulously sassy flats. The only problem is that I now fancy about five different pairs. It was bound to happen. Here is a gallery of my favorite type of shoe.
