Candy Cane Couture

This outfit was inspired by our hand decorated Sweet Heart Necklace prepare for a lot of red and white! 

 While this is a festive look it could also be worn all year round (if you can ignore the holiday connotations of candy canes and just pretend its stripes) 

. We started with a beautiful white dress with red and white trim and added a bright red cardigan to keep you warm, some great diagonal-striped white stockings and glittery red shoes. It's all finished off with red lipstick, sparkling nail polish and a bath with Lush's lovely candy cane bubble bar so you'll smell as sweet as you look :)

Beautiful Bauble inspired outfit

 I thought it would be fun to make some polyvore sets including our jewellery, to show some ideas of what you could wear with our pieces. I've started with our festive Christmas collection and
up first is our  Beautiful Bauble
piece (which comes in 3 colours and can be made as either a brooch or necklace, it's your choice! 

Can you guess what this look is based around? That's right, a Christmas tree! I thought this would be a great look to wear to a party because it's festive, glamourous and most of all fun!
The look is based around a lovely green datin dress paired with gold accessories, like a belt (wrapped around like tinsel on a tree), a bow-shaped bag (a bit like a present) and ballet flats so you can dance the night away in comfort. There's also green tights for those chilly walks home, red lip gloss (with a name like Tinsel Town how could I resist?) and a sparkling star for your hair! Finally our Beautiful Bauble is perfect as a necklace to make the look even more Christmassy and make you clearly the prettiest dressed little tree of the season :D
