Things that caught my eye this week

Fashion designer Danielle Scutt's stunning new jewellery collection

My favourite is the necklace and belt above which I think are fabulous.  The collection is a collaboration with Freedom at Top Shop which means they shouldn't be expensive.  They go in store on 1st April.  Danielle cites her inspiration for the collection as Frida Kahlo, Peggy Guggenheim and Prevost's novel Manon Lescaut.  The luxury pieces are made of matt gold components, enamel and woven platinum blonde hair, I'm assuming the hair's not real!

Lipstick earrings with platinum blonde hair

Jewellery, make-up and tea all in one pair of earrings - perfect.

Other things I've liked this week

Andy Warhol's portrait of Tina Chow on Little Augury's blog

Which reminded me of this Betsey Johnson Marilyn coat on Ebay
This is bonkers and not exactly a bargain purchase but I think it's great fun!  Available to Buy it now at £117

I also liked these Betsey Johnson red velvet wedges on Ebay
Unfortunately they are too small for me at size 5.  They are currently on at £21.75 with no bids yet.  I love the heart buckles.

Vintage Seventies fringed maxi dress on Ebay
I thought this was great but it went well above what I was prepared to pay and sold for £125!

I think I've found an outfit in my wardrobe for the Mad Men party tonight.  I am taking Kate's advice and saying I'm from Season 4 which goes into the early Sixties.  The Actor was talking about going as Colonel Gadaffi earlier!  I shall definitely take some pictures to blog.  God knows what I'm going to do with my hair.  I bought a set of original Carmen rollers on Ebay last year that someone had knocking about in their loft unopened.  I don't know if my theory is correct but every time I use them, no matter how I do it my hair looks like something straight out of the Seventies!  I tried to do a beehive earlier but it just falls back into my usual style after five minutes.  Hmmmm.  I'm hoping that I'll get away with it as I always dress up anyway.

Have a great Saturday xxx
