Bag It Up Challenge #88

Continuing on with the LE theme in this next post and another two bags from releases! First up is the Mega Sequin Purse which came out in the 5th collection many moons ago in 2009 - I only bought it in the past few years in the bazaar though! I love it with other pink and purple tones and totally couldn't decide between these two jackets and therefore combined them in one look, the pink suede looks great with the lilac I think and both work well with the sequins. Overall not the easiest bag to style, but at the same time, this wasn't difficult so I could have given it more of a chance before! And then second up is the fairly recent Phone Included Purse which came out earlier this year. I liked this piece initially but went off of it after trying a few stylings because it just wasn't quite right for me - I'm glad I've gotten to give it another go, I really like it styled into this look and there's a lot of aspects I love, but I don't think the bag adds anything hugely special to it, so I think this is a piece I'll maybe sell once the challenge is over!

Layer leather

Street glamour in todays feature from Shazaib12! This dress is definitely an unusual piece, but I love how it's styled and made to look a little more casual with the cool textured almost sheer long sleeve top underneath, which also solves the cut-out sections of the dress making it much more wearable - perfect^ The accessories are spot on for the look, love the clutch and heels, plus the choker is a great fit for the shirt and the hairstyle =D

C A L L I E S P I C K S | Styled By You / / Styled By Me

Last week came our (fairly) regular Callie's Picks drop themed Uptown Girls - which I really thought I would love, but not so much appealed to me this time, but that might be because I feel a lot of these items are quite recent to the Plaza for the first time round. It feels you guys feel the same as I didn't find all that many people wearing this collection - one person did stand out clearly and that was ThePerpetua who has made great work with the Olive Polka Dotted Blouse, isn't it a great match with this skirt?! I also cannot get over the additions of the frilled edges at the neck and the sleeves, they're amazing and such a great style creation =D
I did manage to purchase a couple of things, firstly the Olive Polka Dotted Blouse, and I'm sure I could come up with something a little more imaginative, but I quite like it in this classic style and I liked choosing something a little different with these furry shoes^ And then secondly I bought the Shoes Insp By Topshop, partly because I like the style and partly because they were only 110SC's, what a bargain! Anyways, I like them with these culottes (even though you can't see they're culottes ...) and this pale winter styling, it's easy to work with tones like this with the shoes because the soles are a pale tone, I like this difference =D

Blue maroon

What a perfect summer to autumn transition look from Nitielll...... today in this feature! I've not thought about these cool blue trousers since I bought them and this has brought them right to the front of my mind again =D They look fantastic and I love the pairing of this floral oversized jacket, on trend and perfectly matching! The burgundy accents added to are great, the shoes and bag are perfect and a surprise 'love' with the blue. Great hair too^^

We Wear Hotbuys O C T O B E R | Velvet Ballerina

I can't believe we're getting close to the end of the October Hotbuys! These are the Velvet Ballerina adorable flats costing 17SD's from Fallen Angel. I think these are super cute and definitely a quirky piece to add to your shoe collection. The colour is amazing, burgundy is super popular right now, and the flat style is also very 'in'. Plus I think the ankle strap style will appeal to a lot of people =D
I'm of the opinion that if they're designed as flats they should be worn as flats, but everyone has different ideas - although clearly these shoes look best with other burgundy pieces^ Vote in the poll too, we love seeing what you think:

Nude trending

This look was such a must to feature! Today's feature is from miss_wiolaxx and I am in love with everything about it, I've found it very inspiring^ I love the use of these black culottes with the nude side-split dress, not a combination I would have used due to the colour contrast, but there's not so much black with the use of the nude shawl too, it's pretty perfect^ The accessorising is awesme and very fitting, those metallic booties are so spot on for the style =D
