My new Alaia inspired arm-candy

Alaia vs Dune

Back in the day when I used to read lots of magazines, one of my favourite pages was the Splurge/Save page. So I thought I would make it a regular feature on the blog, if something catches my eye. I returned a pair of shoes to Dune yesterday and spotted this gorgeous bag. I have been after a white handbag for a while (I think they look so chic in the summer) and this one doesn’t look cheap, like so many of them. Needless to say it came home with me. I have always loved the Alaia laser cut bags, but with their hefty price tags they were always going to be admired from afar. Thrilled to have found myself a dupe!

While I was there, I spotted last year’s much loved Loupe sandals in now in a denim and raffia version. I have both the black and the tan and they are so comfortable.

Now we just need the weather to hurry up and warm up! I braved the chill in this new top from HM today – I am so pleased with it. It’s £24.99 and from their Conscious range – I am wearing a size 6 (which is my usual size in the new HM sizing) The sleeves are definitely voluminous but I love them! I also spotted this gorgeous dress which is new in and reminds me so much of the coveted black Isabel Marant version from last year. It does also come in white but I thought the white version looked a little cheap.

Frilled Cotton Blouse – £24.99

This was the other top which I really loved. Usually I avoid a high neck (they make me look very busty) but when they have a v design like this, it draws the attention down so I might try it.

Anyway that’s all for today, I am off to watch BGT with a G&T!
