Salvatore Ferragamo Varina Classic Bow Flats Look4Less

These ballerina flats are so gorgeous and the quality looks absolutely superb, don't you agree ? When you think Salvatore Ferragamo Pumps you automatically think the Vara pumps, am I correct ? The Vara pump was introduced in the 1970s and was a favourite of Princess Diana. The pump below, the Varina pump was introduced in 2007 and is a more modern spin off of the Vara pump. The Varina classic bow pump is a lovely and very versatile shoe worth having in your wardrobe. The Varina Classic Bow pump costs €350 and is available online from farfetch.com
 

Of course, although these are fantastic, perhaps you may want to check out the other option below if your budget doesn’t allow for such a large investment.
If you can’t afford Italian luxury, but still want Italian style, here’s a fantastic Look4Less I found from ALDO. The pumps below cost €50 and are also available in nude and black leather.

Dolce and Gabbana Red Lace Dress Look4Less

Every woman needs that perfect dress in her closet; the dress that hugs in the right places and flows away in the wrong ones. I know generally this is a little black dress but I’m going to argue that a dash of colour, on the contrary, is what will really get you noticed. There is nothing more romantic than lace! Especially red lace and this dress is both romantic and elegant. Yet, priced at €1950 this might break the bank for some (well, probably most) of us, so below is a Look4Less.
 
 

The dress below exudes elegance and opulence. The colour may be slightly darker and the lace may not be as pretty as the D&G dress but for the massive price difference I think I could get over that. I love the fact that this dress is a midi dress and has long selves, you are totally covered up, but the lace adds a touch of femininity to the look. The dress below is from Oasis and costs a much more reasonable €60.

Burberry Heart Print Silk Shirt Look4Less

I am not the only one who has fallen head over heels in love with the heart motif. This shirt started out as a must-have garment that was rocked by the likes of Victoria Beckham and Donna Air. Even Harry Styles has declared his love for Burberry's sweet print by wearing the men's blue version to the One Direction This Is Us premiere in London in August. The Burberry Heart Print Silk Shirt costs €595 and is also available in black.

 

Fortunately for us, the high street has acknowledged this trend and spread the love by creating their own (very) similar shirts. In my opinion one of the best Looks4Less out there is this heart motif print shirt from Topshop. But Topshop aren't the only ones to have been hot on Burberry's trail, Whistles and New Look have both released budget-friendly takes on the heart print trend. The shirt below costs a much more reasonable €45.

What a Year !!!! (My Blogoversary)

I feel like I blinked and the year disappeared, and it was the most amazing year. It definitely had its highs and lows but I would love to go back and do it all over again.

I would also like to take a few minutes and thank all of you followers, commenters and readers of my blog. Never in a million years would I have imagined that people would actually follow my blog let alone comment on it. I really do appreciate each and every one of you. I get so excited when I get an email saying that there is a comment on my blog!!! Thank you all so very much!!

I should also say I have very gentle and mannered readers. Thank you for this! For the last year not once have I received a rude or hateful comment. I do appreciate this a lot.

Thank you to all of you who have supported me during the past year, both my readers and those of you who support me in my everyday life, you know who you are.

So, to summarise all these words, I wrote this post to thank you for being always there and being LOYAL to me, I sincerely do appreciate that, and also that dreams do come true... even through just a computer. I know I say thank you a lot here on the blog, and I told you before that I was a sap, but I really do mean it. You’re helping me to live out my dreams, and just in case you didn’t know P.S. I LOVE YOU more each day for it.

Jill Jill Stuart Mesh Polka Dot Dress Look4Less

The little black dress gets a twist with some elegant mesh polka dots. The beautiful black mesh polka dots with a flattering cut like this and you might have the perfect black cocktail dress. Jill Jill Stuart has a way of making even the simplest of LBD's standout in a packed room and this dress is no exception. I would wear this dress with an elegant bun, a red lip and very little jewellery. This gorgeous Jill Jill Stuart dress costs €185 and is available from Nordstrom's.


The Jill Jill Stuart dress has been embedded in my mind since I first saw it and when I came across the dress below it instantly reminded me of it. This Forever 21 dress is quite reminiscent of the Jill Jill Stuart dress, but of course for a much lower price. The mesh polka dot detail may not be as intricate as the Jill Jill Stuart dress but for the massive price difference I think I will get over it. The Forever 21 dress costs  €25. Don’t cha just love Forever 21 !!!
