Out with the old....

Well not that old. My whole room is becoming a massive wardrobe so I thought it was about time I started selling some stuff. I have a few bits I've never worn, some I've worn once/twice and some bits I really love and will be sad to see leave but they need a new home. Click the links for more information on the items and more photos.

First up is this brand new French Connection maxi dress still with the tags on. I've never had the chance to wear it and I doubt I ever will. With an RRP of £125 and a starting bid of £19.99 why not grab yourself a bargain - hurry though, you've only 2 days left to bid!!

Next is this New Look maxi dress. Again its brand new and never been worn but has no tags.

I think I am most sad to see this next dress go as I wore this for my 21st birthday and got so many compliments. It's from Miss Selfridge and is a size 6 although I am a size 8-10 and it fits me like a glove.

Another brand new dress with the tags still attached, this one's from Primark and is size 10 but a very small so more like an 8

This green wiggle dress is actually my housemates and is very Mad Men.

Another one I'll be sad to see leave me is this Love Label one shouldered star print dress.

Lastly is this Vintage black lace dress. Its very 50s/60s and in perfect condition. I have never worn it has I already have a dress very similar.

Hopefully someone will see something they like and give it a nice new home. You can see the full list of all my items by clicking here! Thank you all for looking and good luck with any bids =]

Leighton Meester - Style Steal

Leighton Meester was photographed on the Gossip Girl set yesterday in New York wearing this eye catching outfit.
It's a great look for those transitional cooler days/nights from summer to winter. The main piece in this outfit are the high-waisted, wide leg trousers. Their made of a light material and are perfect for keeping your legs covered when its not quite hot enough for mini skirts and shorts, but are also breezy as we're not quite in fur coat wearing season just yet. New Look have these fantastic replica's all for £24.99. Make like Leighton and team with a bright top and shoes.
Or if your feeling a bit more daring, why not try these patterned wide leg trousers, again from New Look.These would look great with a plain top and wedges.

Don't forget you can email me any celebrity pictures that you would like me to help steal the style from, to x_pirateslife4me_x@hotmail.com. Thanks for reading, comments are more than welcome =]

Dorothy Perkins AW 11 Collection

Dorothy Perkins have released pictures of their new collection set to hit their stores for Autumn/Winter. Ever since clasping eyes on this collection I have been lusting over their Monochrome shifts and colour blocking pieces. Here's a few of my favourites that I will most definitely be saving up for.
This top is a very good replica of the tops we saw back at the start of this year from Chanel's Paris Fashion Week runway show for their Spring/Summer collections. It's an easy cut to wear with a pretty, sparkly pattern.

The reason I'm most looking forward to winter arriving is to dig out my lovely thick coat! This furry number is great if you fancy yourself as a Cruella Deville but with a heart. It is certain to warm your frozen bones during those chilly nights.

Love, love, LOVE the colour of this blazer. This is positive to brighten up those dark, cold nights and leave a mark at the Christmas party.

Now I couldn't pick my favourite dress so here's them all. Firstly the skater dresses.

Such simple, easy to wear design. Pair with colourful tights and thick block heels.

Now we're going back to the 60s with these Wiggle dresses - Think Mad Men's Joan.

It's time to embrace your curves. Just because winter is approaching, doesn't mean we can't still be sexy. Perfect for the office and a cheeky night out.

 Don't forget, if you've recently seen a celebrity wearing an outfit you'd love to recreate, just email me a photo to x_pirateslife4me_x@hotmail.com and I'd be happy to help =]

Rachel Bilson - Style Steal

A few days ago, Rachel Bilson turned up to the CBS TCA Party in Beverly Hills wearing this cute ensemble.

It's a bright look that's bound to get you noticed and I love how she's mismatched her prints with the floral shirt and leopard print heels. Its really simple to recreate yourself from the high street and online (because let's face it, we can't all afford to splash out on that floral Erdem shirt). So I've scoured the web and managed to find some cheaper alternatives.

Hope you enjoy this update, hopefully I'll be blogging a bit more. If anyone would like me to help them recreate a look, just send me a picture of the original look to x_pirateslife4me_x@hotmail.com and I'll try my best to help. =]
