BLOGGING/ Happy Birthday Curious Alice Loves…

 Happy 1st Birthday to my blog! 

For the last year this page has allowed me to share all things Fashion, Food and Fun with the world and you’ve been kind enough to read it! I’ve had the best time experimenting with styles, being introduced to different brands, working with some fab people behind those brands. And most importantly, I’ve met some lovely like minded people who I thoroughly enjoy spending time with

               

Do you like the ‘Beyonce hurrr, don’t currrrr’ vibe I’m trying out? I’ve had this wrap pony for ages so it was nice to change it up and be a bit 90s ghetto fabulous with it for a change! This top is part of the coord I have in multiple colours, I really like it paired with the acid wash jeans (which are ridiculously comfortable by the way). This whole outfit is amazing value – excluding the shoe boots it comes in at under £25! The shoes are less than £30 and are really comfy (as you’ll see by previous posts that I wear them ALL THE TIME).

Top- Miss Foxy, Jeans- Matalan,  Shoes- Public Desire, Sunglasses- A Turkish sunglasses shop (they say Tom Ford on them, I have my doubts…), Mouse Ears- Disneyland Anaheim, circa 1988, Ponytail- Hair Rehab London

 We all know what the fun part of birthdays is, well aside from cake…presents! So to mark Curious Alice Loves… 1st birthday I’m giving away these gorgeous Daisy Crown Chakra Drop earrings, available at Hugh Rice

FASHION / Putting on the Ritz *Flashback Friday*

I really enjoyed my #flashbackfriday post last week! so thought I’d do another! 

The Memory – Tea at The Ritz 21 June 2013    

I can be very specific with the date of this because it was important – longest day of the year, Prince William’s 31st birthday….and my 9th successful year of being 21! I think most people call this turning 30; but I don’t care what they put on the cake, I don’t think my head will ever move past 18! 

Anyway, Mr Alice pulled out all the stops to help me achieve another bucket list fantasy by taking me to tea at The Ritz. It did NOT disappoint – the staff (as you would expect) were superb, the atmosphere was happy and I didn’t think it was possible to eat so much of such little food items! It was the most amazing #birthday celebration EVER.

 Honestly with this look I wouldn’t update the overall thing – I feel the #skater style of is great for my shape as is the lace detailing round the waist. The style is a really classic one that Philip Armstrong channels a lot that I adore  

 

(Pics taken from the Philip Armstrong website)  

My dress is by AX Paris and it’s still a really popular style in (I actually own it in cream too but haven’t had the opportunity to wear it even after all this time! Must change that) 

I definitely tweak the accessories to make them more current. The shoes. I’d still keep simple (the lace detail is enough) but go for something a bit more summer like these New Look barely there sandals

 However I’d definitely carry a pair of Roll a Sole pumps with me for afterwards when me feet get ore walking around London!

I’d need a bag that was big enough to fit in essentials but small enough to fit nicely under a table, so this Dorothy Perkins one is ideal

What do you think of my #Ritz look – what would you wear, or what have you worn if you’ve been?

Wishing you a great start to #May a lovely #Friday and a fabulous #BankHoliday weekend to all of workers in the UK!
