Fashion Friday featuring Norakaren

Hey guys I’m back! Sorry I’ve been slightly lapsed in my postings, I had some last minute travel on top of moving house so things have been a little hectic. But it would appear as though things are starting to calm down so I can get back to one of my favorite things…talking to you all of course, I really did miss my blogging.

This week’s fashion Friday is featuring the fantastic etsy shop Norakaren. Where do I even begin with Norakaren? Well first off Nora sells shoes, and what woman doesn’t already have an affinity for shoes? But Nora takes it a step further by dyeing, painting, and adding crytsals to what are already lovely shoes and by doing so transforms them into something more akin to art you can walk in.

I have to say I’ve always been a sucker for a pair of unique heels, they are that dash of whimsy and color that can turn even the simplest of outfits into a fashion statement. I decided to wear something I would consider office appropriate just to show you what I mean. Give a girl the right shoes and she can do anything…including change stuffy officewear into something fun and flirty.

Shoes: Norakaren I cannot even begin to describe how fun these shoes are, from the crystals on the heels to the blue soles and whimsical cow print you just know you could never find anything like them in a run of the mill shop. Artist like Nora are precisely why I love etsy so much, you’re buying a one of a kind piece that someone has poured their love and talent into. Whether you’re walking down the aisle and want a statement piece or you’re walking around the supermarket and want shoes so pretty Cinderella would trade in prince charming just to own a pair like yours Norakaren is the place to fulfill your wishes. Not only are Nora’s designs stunning but she will also work one on one with you to create a custom pair of shoes sure to please! I cannot encourage you enough to check out this wonderful ladie’s work!

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you have a wonderful weekend. Happy Friday!

Fashion Friday Featuring Desi Roo Clothing

Hey guys I am rather excited to share a fabulous find with you all this week. Whilst surfing through etsy (like one does) I came across the fabulous Desi Roo Clothing, not only are there beautiful accessories to choose from, but all of the blouses offered are so incredibly lovely!

What I especially loved is that a lot of the tops are made from vintage fabric but the blouse itself is new, so there won’t be the hassles that come along with pure vintage pieces like rips, fragility, and mysterious smells/stains. There are a few variations of blouse structure offered: cotton tie shoulder top,  flirty puff sleeve wrap back blouse, and the 1940’s puff sleeve wrap back, plus all the prints and fabrics offered are too numerous and outrageously beautiful to name, if there is a particular color or print you happen to be fond of I bet you can find it. I could honestly buy one in every print and have the most perfect wardrobe that ever was. Oh and another great thing about Desi Roo is that if there is a top you like that just happens to be too large it can be altered for a better fit for only $15!

Earrings: Desi Roo Clothing  all the beauty of actual Bakelite but none of the potential lead poisoning. I mean who wouldn’t want to don a pair of pastel chrysanthemum earrings?

Blouse: Desi Roo Clothing  I love love LOOOVE this blouse! Its just as comfortable as a T-shirt but worlds more stylish. Whether your personal style is that of a vintage inspiration or you’re simply a woman who appreciate a well made spectacular fitting top that can be worn from errands, to the office, and then to a night on the town, then this little number is for you! The fabric is sturdy, doesn’t wrinkle easily, and the fit is superb! Just follow the size chart and you’re good as gold. My measurments are 36″ 27.5″ 36″ and the medium is a perfect fit yay! It can be difficult to look stylish during the warmer months but this blouse was made for spring and summer! The sleeves sit just off the shoulders for a feminine and stylish look that will keep you cool but won’t sacrifice on style!

Pencil Skirt: H&M

Flats: Payless
