Rosie Loves Poppy and Ted

It is definitely the little details that impress me.  A hidden feature of a product, an extra creature comfort, a secret cubbyhole, these are all things that leave me instantly wowed. I was called a 'Marketer's Dream' at work the other day because I bought a new brand of tea because the packaging was so pretty.  So when my beautiful top from Poppy Lux arrived swathed in red tissue paper with a note inside and in a lovely red box (that I am adding to my collection of boxes that are too nice to throw away that are currently taking over my house), it's fair to say that I was pretty sold before I'd even got it out of the packaging.

Poppy Lux have been on my radar since their inception. The sister brand of Sugarhill Boutique - whom I am also head over heels for - have some utterly beautiful things; their dresses in particular are stunning and so well-priced. I am eyeing up this Lola dress for my Christmas Day outfit!


But dresses aside, I have spoken previously about my love for a trousers and top combo on a night out.  I have rather fallen out of love with tights lately, I am pretty over yanking them up, them being too long for my short legs, getting ladders almost every time I come home from work and greet Bodhi, and so on.  I think a glitzy top and some smart trousers (disco pants, printed trousers, I even have some rather comfy velvet leggings) are going to be my go-to combo for the Christmas season.  And this Poppy Lux top is storming right to the top of my faves list.



victoria blouse, poppy lux, £36* // america apparel disco pants, asos, £74 
heels, kat maconie lucy sandals, £140 // clutch, ted baker ipad case, surfdome, £34.99*

As well as loving little details, I also love versatility, and you can't get more versatile than an iPad Mini case that doubles up as a clutch (whether it intended to or not!) I was kindly sent this Ted Baker iPad Mini case from Surfdome a couple of weeks ago and I just love it - it would be absolutely perfect as a Christmas gift for anyone who might be expecting an iPad Mini for Christmas! I hunted for an iPad Mini case for ages (there aren't that many nice ones around!) so I was over the moon when I spotted this.  And moreso when I discovered I can fit my house key, wallet and phone in it on a night out (and Ted Baker clutches certainly retail for more than £35!)


Hope you are all having lovely Fridays, I am already in my onesie and preparing for an evening of M&S Blackberry and Gin Fizz, present wrapping and Christmas music....

  3. I'm such a marketer's dream too as I'm a sucker for anything that's limited edition! That blouse is super cute, but I still daren't try disco pants. I'm hoping for an iPad Mini case for Christmas too, but I feel like that that bow might get in the way or break?

    Loving the sound of fizz and a onesie!

  4. :O I love that iPad mini case! I have just a boring case that folds over the front, its not very pretty. That Ted Baker one is a bit of a bargain at £35 too! *swoon*

  15. You look so gorgeous Rosie posie! Such a great outfit on you. I too am apparently a marketer's dream, I'm always sold by the pretty packaging and little details- it's actually why I love ordering things online from Zara (and I always keep the tissue paper for wrapping other presents in haha!) xx

  16. I'm exactly the same with the little details, they totally win me over every time, especially if pretty tissue paper is involved! :)

  17. Mmm-mmmm you look gorgeous Rosie! Gorgeous figure too miss, you are looking very fit & trim! I'm jealous of that fact too :( haha ! I love trousers/leggings and a pretty top too - although once in a while I like a nice dress or skirt, I definitely feel most like myself in leggings or trousers...I'm a boy I think!
