Step into Spring

The hype of London Fashion Week is gradually dying down and we are all looking towards spring for our next fashion inspiration. Many people look at Fashion Week as just a series of fashion shows and a prestigious event in which celebrities attend, but there are so many things people often forget. If it wasn't for fashion week, the designs we see in the stores - high street and high end would cease to exist. Fashion Weeks are a platform in which buyers can go invest in upcoming trends and supply us, the consumers with fresh, new inspiring clothing that will get us from season to season. This post is inspired by one of my favourite designers Orla Kiely. Just over two years ago, I entered a competition that popped up on Twitter to win an Orla Kiely handbag. Admittedly I knew nothing about the designer at the time, but the handbag looked wonderful and was priced at £500 - who wouldn't want to win a brand new, expensive handbag? Luckily for me, I won the handbag and with the handbag, came my new love for Orla Kiely.

 I began researching more about the designer and found out her style is really feminine and evokes a vintage vibe - two things I look for when picking my day to day clothing. Her intricate use of fabrics and patterns excites me and I love how each collection tells a story. The pastel colours featured in the Spring/Summer 2014 have been my favourite Orla Kiely designs so far and today, I thought I would show you a little outfit I created with inspiration deriving from the Orla Kiely collection.

From the age of approximately 12 years old, I have always shopped in New Look*. It is a great way of getting affordable, quality fashion and they always have at least one item that grabs my attention in store. I find their heels exceptionally comfy and all my favourite pairs of jeans come from New Look. As I currently do not have the biggest clothing budget, I turned to one of my favourite, trusted stores to search for an outfit similar to those featured in the Orla Kiely S/S collection and was amazed by how many similar items I found. This outfit consists of this lovely floral print 'Boxy T-Shirt' at £14.99, the 'Pink Crepe A-line Mini Skirt' at £14.99 again, the tan handbag - which is the first item I really want to buy, which is priced at £24.99 and finally the 'Nude Patent Court Shoes' at £14.99. That is a designer duplicate outfit at less than £60 and even cheaper if you have student discount. I honestly cannot wait until payday.

What items are you looking to buy in the near future?
