The Royal Wedding - The Fashion Side

Ok so if you live in the UK you will no doubt have been inundated with Royal Wedding info and photos (and just the general hype!) But I figured I couldn't miss out on all the wonderful fashion!

So first up The Bride: Catherine Middleton - wearing a dress by Sarah Burton for McQueen and jewellery on load from the Queen.
She looked absolutely stunning, understated elegance.

The Bridesmaid: Pippa Middleton - In an Alexander McQueen sheath dress with Cowl neck and stunning button detail on the back - She looked amazing! Need I say more

The Queen - In sunshiny Angela Kelly, I shant comment too much as it's the Queen, lol. But I think the choice of creamy yellow was great and the style is very her, it's what we have come to expect of her.
Camilla Duchess of Cornwall - In Anna Valentine and Philip Treacy hat. She looked lovely. I believe Anna Valentine has been dressing Camilla for a while now so know what works best and this outfit really did. Plus one of a million Philip Treacy hats at the event and I love this one!
Princess Anne - Cannot find who designed her suit but she looks colourful and very summery. It's interesting but not too way out and I think it suits her well.
The Mother of the Bride - Carol Middleton - No idea who her suit is by but she looked classic and elegant and didn't upstage the bride!
Chelsy Davy - Wears Alberta Ferretti skirt and jacket with grey lace hat by Victoria Grant. I am not at all keen on this outfit, it makes her look much older than she is and it seems quite tight on her. She could have chosen something more elegant and classic.
Samantha Cameron - chose a vivid teal sheath dress by Burberry worn with a jewelled hairclip by Erdem. I think she looked sophisticate and eye catching in such a bright colour, but she could have worn a hat or fascinator!
Tara Palmer-Tompkinson - In Deborah Milner Dress, Philip Treacy Hat and Nicholas Kirkwood Shoes. I think the bright blue from head to toe may have been a bit of an over kill. But I think the dress and the shoes look great.
Princess Euginie and Princess Beatrice - Euginie wore Vivienne Westwood and Beatrice wore Valentino suit and Philip Treacy hat. I'm not sure on the Westwood outfit (although she is my God!) but I think Beatrice's suit is beautiful on her, but the hat is a little strange.
Miriam Gonzalez Durantez - No idea who the outfit is by again but it was a brave move. Not sure it really paid off though. I think the whole thing is a little OTT. Love the shoes!!

Victoria Beckham - In a dress of her own, Philip Treacy hat and custom made Louboutins. Well to be honest the dress is dull and un-inspiring. I know she is 6months pregnant but she just looks like she is wearing a sheet of fabric. And I am not understanding all these hats sitting right on the forehead! Plus those shoes are too high!

Of course there were lots more guest and celebrities (1,090 in total I believe) and pictures will no doubt flood ever aspect of the media over the next few days but these are the top few. I shall maybe do another post on the guests later in the week.

So which outfits do you like? Or not like?
And how many hats do you think Philip Treacy can make in 6 months?? He seemed to have done most of the congregation I think! lol

Fever London Review

A few weeks ago I told you all about the beautiful new collection by Fever London and how I had been chosen to review their collection. Well my post is now up on their blog so I would love it if you could nip over for a look and tell me what you think.

And to go with that very timely post I have finally gotten around to taken an outfit photo with one of the dresses they gave me. This dress has become a favourite very quickly and I have worn it on a number of occasions already. I usually wear it with my electric blue suede heels but as we were going to the beach I thought my bright pink indian style flats were a better choice.
Dress: c/o Fever London
Cardigan: Fashion Union
Shoes: SK Fashion
Bag: Vintage via Etsy
Glasses: Free with Tatler
Necklace's: Both from a swap with Tia
Ring: Primark
Earrings: Claire's Accessories

As we both had a day off together after working 7/8 days straight we thought we would take advantage of the good weather and take a trip to Barry Island (of Gavin and Stacy fame).
We had chips from the cafe Stacy worked in

and played the slots in Nessa's Arcade.
We exchanged our prize tokens for sweeties! Jon eating his Lion Bar and Strawbs
Me with my Rainbow Drops and Double Dips!
Then took a wander to the point and sat on the rocks overlooking the sea. It was lovely!

My honey chilling!

Is anyone else a Gavin and Stacy fan?
Have you been on any fun day trips recently? Has the weather inspired any one else to ditch the city and flee to the coast or maybe the countryside?

Just Harrie

Hello Ladies, I apologise profusely for my lack of posts over the last week, but I have just been stupidly busy with work in the pub and my writing deadlines were both this weekend so they had to be done too.

Anyway I shall try get myself a little back on track with the whole blogging this week as I have 2 days off! Yay! But as I have no outfits to post (unless you wanna see my uniform!) I thought I would share something different.

Last night in work I saw a star in the making! Yes I really did! Little (big) O'Neills was graced with the presence of Just Harrie a guitarist and singer due who are utterly amazing.

Just Harrie consists of Singer, Harriet Whitehead and guitarist, Chris Peet. Who have such a unique and beautiful sound, it actually made working a joy last night.

So here is their Promo video for you:

What do you think? Aren't they amazing? So amazing!

Here is another YouTube video I found of them. Sound isn't great but you can hear what they are about.

And if you want more (and who wouldn't want more?) just check out their website here.

Ok I think I am done gushing about this amazing act.

I shall be back soon with some outfit pics again, and possibly some reviews too.

Inspiration Monday

The ladies of Two Birds Blog have given us another inspiration photo for this weeks Inspiration Monday post.
This week they chose this casual outfit by Gwen Stefani. I decided that this week I would take the outfit a little less literally as it was a fairly easy outfit to replicate.
So I ended up with this:
I changed up the heels for flats as heels would not have been practical for the outing this outfit was used for, a simple late night backyard BBQ, and I added the white top so I didn't get too old later in the evening.
Shirt: Spydenim Mens Wear
Jeans: Dorothy Perkins
Top: Tommy Hilfiger
Shoes: Converse from China
Glasses: Magazine Freebies
So I kept the check shirt, dark jeans, oversized animal print sun glasses and bright red lippy, so I think I did quite well and put my own comfortable twist on it!
