Dolce&Gabbana Hydrangea Dress Look4Less

Florals are a given for Spring but it's not often my favourite flowers, Hydrangeas make an appearance. Seriously though, could you get a more Spring appropriate print? Dolce&Gabbana have done it again! This dress is insanely beautiful but I don't think over €3500 for a statement dress can ever really be justified.

The Valentine's Gifts to Buy Yourself

Because Galentine's > Valentine's, right. Valentine's Day shouldn't just be restricted to honoring the love you have for other people, this year why not celebrate yourself! I've rounded up some pretty gifts that will brighten up your Winter:

An Overpriced Rose Candle

Let's be real, the same price as an overpriced bouquet but it'll last way longer! And you can never have enough candles, that's just a fact of life.

Acne Canada Scarf Look4Less

The Acne Canada scarf as to be one of the most instagramed accessories of 2017. In the realm of designer scarves the Canada scarf is very well priced at 160 considering it is 100% lambswool. One of the best things about this scarf is its width, making it the same size as a large blanket scarf. The Acne Canada scarf comes in almost every colour imaginable, my personal favourites being the pale pink and the grey melange.

Réalisation Par Dress Look4Less

Réalisation Par has become an 'IT girl' label in the past year with their dresses being worn by supermodels and bloggers alike. Perhaps the reason the dresses have become so popular is their incredibly flattering fit. After all Diane Von Fursenberg build an empire on the wrap dress. While I'm all about the investment piece and these dresses are pure silk, in this case I'd much prefer a poly alternative that doesn't need to be dry cleaned and can be stuffed into a carry-on.

Chloé Pixie Bag Look4Less

I'm calling it, the Chloé Pixie bag will be the bag of 2018! Chloé is a brand that has certainly developed a cult following in recent years. The Pixie bag, the latest edition to Chloé's handbag collection could be thought as the much more practical sister to the ever trendy Nile bag. The distinctive metal handles can even be folded back down neatly for a clean look when the bag is not in use. The Pixie bag retails at €1190.

Winter Sale 2017 Top Picks

I hope you've all been enjoying the last few days and relaxing. It seems crazy that Winter sale time is upon us again. This year I've avoid the shops and done all my shopping from the comfort of my sofa, like most people I'd imagine. So I've put together a collection of my favourite piece from the sales.And always remember it's not a bargain if you wouldn't have paid full price for it, don't get sucked in and buy items for the hell of it. Use these sales to pick up investment pieces that you'll still love next Winter!

Chloé Susanna Studded Ankle Boots Look4Less

These boots have been around now for close to a decade. At the beginning a lot of the fashion world dismissed them a seasonal trand piece but they definitely seem to have stood the test of time and have become a piece in Chloé 's core collection. At over a thousand euro, they definitely are not an affordable piece to have in your everyday wardrobe. Saying that, they are here to stay so if they are very much your style you might consider the investment.

Gucci Dionysus Bamboo Handle Look4Less

There are few elements in handbag history as iconic as the Gucci Bamboo handle. The bamboo handle was first created by Gucci in 1947 when rationing was still in effect and the fashion house had to find a material to use that would not be subject to the restrictions. Since then the bamboo handle has been synonymous with Gucci. In 2010 Gucci reintroduced the bamboo handle for the first time in decades and it has been vital in their whole brand revival. The bag below retails for € 2,390.

A Day at Seaworld's Aquatica

On a recent trip to Orlando I was lucky enough to receive complimentary tickets from Seaworld to experience their waterpark, Aquatica. While I love walking around the tradition theme parks there’s a lot to be said for a chill day at a waterpark especially in 33 degree heat.

Louis Vuitton Star Trail Ankle Boot Look4Less

I've had my eye on the Louis Vuitton Star Trail ankle boots for the last few seasons but I've never been able to bring myself to spend 1100 on a pair of boots. Even I have limits! For me these chunky heeled boots achieve the perfect balance between classic and edge. A classic black ankle boot is an essential, no matter the time of the year. Chunky heels and track soles are massive trends for this A/W and the Louis Vuitton Star Trail boots have done it just right and ensured the boot still remains feminine.
