style cuddle with glamorai, frida & a mexicali rose

when kelly (the glamorai) posted these photos, i was amazed and instantly blown away by the stunning colours and richness of the photo shoot and her styling.
of course, one can't help but think of the original woman behind the look... miss frida herself!
 and i can't help but feel inspired to pull together a style cuddle version to achieve the look... bold earrings + a hair band are essential. 
1. tatty devine skull necklace // 2. asos carnation headband, i am also crushing after this free people head dress, though a bit pricier // 4. levi's trucker jacket (two shades of denim shown) // 4. asos flower & jewel drop earring // 5. lipsy diamante headband // 6. monsoon kendal earring

may showers bring june...?

it's been raining a lot this month, may showers bring june...?  it's memorial day weekend and the weather for nyc looks iffy! i'm still gonna head out to the beach, for me it's nice to get out of town. even if it's raining, i picked up some dylan thomas and newest jalouse to read, so i'm happy.

style cuddle: calamity jane

one of my favourite movies growing up was calamity jane. i remember my mum and i would watch it over & over again in our london flat. i would dream that one day i too would be a cowgal out west. these days, the closest i get to my childhood western dream is grabbing a frozen margarita at cowgirl on hudson st and listening to a tim mcgraw song

but when i saw this pussy bow shirt, i felt my inner jane pitter patter! 

(i also stumbled on this free people vintage fringe jacket, but for nyc i think it might be a bit much...)

glitter & gold

if you know me well, i cannot leave the house without something sparkly. and you know, i'm more than okay with that. for today's post, i found myself inspired by this fun look (found on tumblr). i think the skirt is this american apparel number, but it only comes in one size and it's a tad too big for me (#fashiongirlproblems, anyone?).

so to get this look i'm going after this topshop prom dress & how splendid are these ban.do accessories? it's the queen's jubilee so a tiara is utterly appropriate this season. style cuddle says so (winky face!). throw on a vintage blazer (the best kind!) to complete the look. i recommend searching on etsy to find something, like this or this.

et voila!

still in need of a glitter & gold fix? just follow my glitter & gold pinterest board.
xo xo, style cuddle

jaspar & jeera, part deux

the jaspar & jeera bag line at anthroplogie is such a fun and affordable handbag line. you may remember this post where i coveted this beaded hobo, but these new purses are just as fun...
available online: detailed hobo bag, beaded clutch, and the blue & yellow pouches (i love the pom pom detail!)

so you think you can (cap) dance

when i was little i'd watch fred astaire and ginger rogers movies on repeat and pretend in the playground i knew all the right steps. now with the capped toe trend in footwear, here's to dreaming like a kid again! 

 1. asos ladybug toe cap neon ballet shoes // 2. kate spade tabby bow shoe // 3. topshop  "magpie" toe capped shoes // 4. webster for target cap toe flat // 5. french connection pompei contrast toe ballet flat

if ballet slippers aren't your thing, how about a little do it yourself project with an old pair of oxfords (or a cheap pair like these) and some paint?

(i just adore this diy project danielle did for minkette!)
