April Wishlist

Hi everyone!

It's time to share with you my April wishlist. As you can see, a particular colour - lilac - is quite dominant in this wishlist. I don't know how or why, but I'm currently obsessed with lilac...and unicorns...and flower headbands...and all of them combined. Everything on this wishlist reminds me of Spring and Summer, so I better get as many of these pieces soon since it's already feeling a lot like Summer in Malta.

The combination of lilac, a Little Pony unicorn and Drop Dead makes me jump up with excitement - literally. I fell in love with this vest as soon as I saw it on the Drop Dead website, and I will do anything to have it in my wardrobe! So pretty!

To continue with the whole lilac theme, this rose headband is another gorgeous piece I want - or rather need - from Crown&Glory. What's not to love? 

This High Heel Suicide cupcake tank is perfect for the hot summer days. The description on their website says that Everybody will want to eat you with this ultralight oversized tank top in off white. I'm up for the challenge :) 

I don't know what perfectly defines spring and summer better than this gorgeous floral print high heels! I love its pattern, colours, and pointed toe. Retailing at £45, how can I ever resist it? 

This cream skater dress from Fashion Union will be perfect for those summer days when it's too hot to put together an outfit. This dress comes with rolled-up sleeves and is available in all pretty spring shades, including cream, peach, blue and green.

There's not much of an explanation to this nail polish, except that I want pretty lavender nails.

Are any of these items on your wishlist too? What's on your April wishlist?

How I Style • Motel Louise Sheer Midi Dress

Hi everyone!

In keeping with the Motel Rocks theme of my last How I Style post, I have created yet another Polyvore set of how I would style their Louise Sheer Midi Dress for a night time look. 

What distinguishes this little black dress from others is its sheer textured skirt. I really love its sophisticated but somewhat edgy touch. The skirt reveals a knicker style hot pants lining, so it might not be a favourite with everyone, but this can be easily 'fixed' if worn with a pair of black tights underneath (don't wear sandals if you're wearing black tights!). To create a night time look, I opted to pair the dress with a black leather jacket, which in my opinion, gives the outfit that extra oomph factor. With regards to the shoes, I chose a gorgeous black and gold Zara sandals for an instant elegant feel to the outfit. For accessorise, I chose the to-die-for Givenchy Antigona clutch and a gold three row chunky chain necklace to go with the gold detail found on the heels.

What do you think of this outfit? Is it something you would wear for a night out? How would you style the dress?

And for this week only, you can get a whopping 25% off your Motel Rocks orders by using the code annalisegrech at checkout. 
After this week, use the same code and get 20% off!

Colour Splash Undies With House of Hollad

Hi everyone!

We all know how in the neon trend is right now. Personally, it's not my cup of tea, but Henry Holland recently designed an innovative UV neon underwear collection, and I'm really loving the idea!

House of Holland has conjured up the most daring of delicates in the shape of the Neon collection, both for men and women. Consisting of super cute bralettes and briefs, these pieces glow under UV light! How great is that? This makes them perfect for clubbing and festivals - wear with low-cut summer tees, dungarees, and sheer pieces, and you're ready to go. And in keeping with the colourful theme, these sets can then be matched with bright neon coloured nail polishes from Barry M, which also glow under UV light.

Henry Holland collaborated with photographer Ben Weller to shoot the video and campaign imagery for this collection. Check out the video below to see how awesome these pieces are:

The UV Neon sets (also available in Coral) retail at £18.00 and are available at 
The Barry M nail varnishes are sold for £2.99 from Barry M

How I Style • Motel Tinkerbell Shirt Dress in Acid Wash Denim

Hi everyone!

You all know by now how much I love Motel Rocks. I think that their pieces are sometimes on the edgier side, which I love, and not something that you find in every other online clothing store. I also love Polyvore, and spend endless hours creating outfits in order to get inspiration of how I can wear clothing and shoe pieces. I have therefore created a small collage of how I would style the Motel Tinkerbell dress. I knew I had to get this dress once I saw it on the Motel website. So, I did. And I fell more in love with it once I tried it on. 

Two of my favourite items in my wardrobe are my polka dot tights and a pair of blue, mustard and tan brogues which I got around two years ago from Office. I think that this buttoned-up denim dress goes really well with the whole combination of polka dots and brogues. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a photo of my brogues on the Internet, but this pair from Miista is oh-so-lovely.

For accessories, the much sought after gold Casio watch and a small tan leather bag are perfect for the look I had in mind. To finish off the look, I added a pair of cat eye tortoise shell sunglasses as no Spring outfit is complete without a pair of sunglasses.

What do you think of this outfit? How would you style the dress?

Just a small reminder that you can get a whopping 20% off your Motel Rocks orders by using the code annalisegrech at checkout.

S/S '13 Must Haves

Hi everyone!

Malta's weather is currently hot and sunny. No, I'm not complaining! I already started to incorporate some summer pieces to my outfits, so I decided to share with you all my Spring/Summer must have items. 

As the temperature starts to increase, boots are usually put to the side and replaced with sandals. Brogues are, however, another great alternative for this time of year since they can be worn without socks too. And the more coloured/eye catching the style of the brogues, the better! As you may know from my latest Designer vs Deal post, I'm currently eyeing this iridescent pair from Miista.

Floral headbands/crowns
What better way is there to accessorise an outfit than by wearing a vintage headband or floral crown? Especially in the Spring season, these pieces would look great when worn with a simple tee and a pair of boyfriend jeans for example. And how well does the pastel coloured floral crown go with the Miista brogues? Love.

Denim Shorts
Denim shorts are a perfect go to piece of clothing especially in the Summer months. Simply wear with a tee tucked in it and you're ready to go. There are loads of coloured denim shorts out there too, so don't be too scared to try on something new. After all, Summer is all about fun, right? 

Oversized tees
I personally don't like clothes that are too fitted in Summer, so these oversized tees from River Island are perfect. They would look super great if worn with a chunky chain necklace, and the best thing about them is that they are bang on the rolled-up sleeve trend. 

Another Spring/Summer must have, and one of the most essential I must add, is a pair of sunglasses. The sun's rays are extreme sometimes, and even if they aren't, sunglasses can finish off an outfit quite nicely. I'm currently loving this pair from Romwe, and it goes perfectly well with any outfit due to it's neutral colour.

Frilly socks
Filly socks. I love them. I definitely think that they add a somewhat girly touch to an outfit, and would look great worn with brogues too! These gingham trim ankle socks from Topshop are the cutest.

Which are your S/S must haves? I just realised that all the items that I mentioned in this post can be worn together! That wasn't my intention, but I'm glad it turned out that way :)
