Wednesday Winners

This week's Wednesday Winners nearly didn't turn up! Busy schedules and blogging technical difficulties stood in a our way but we persevered as we would never let you down!

Naomi's picks:

Topshop Aztec Padded Gilet £55
I saw this in Topshop on Saturday and it reminded me of Christmas and Alaska. I've never been to Alaska but I'm sure this would be a well needed wardrobe item.

Ted Baker Tingey Oversized Floral Printed Top £69
I  love this top. It has cute features including the floral lined neck and sleeves, a floral back and the tiny intricate petals on the shoulder. The petals remind me of Chelsea's amazing wedding dress - see the "About Us" section for a picture!

Lace Collared Playsuit £48
Lace - check, collar - check. I'm turning into Chelsea. The back impresses me the most - it reminds me of another friend's wedding dress!

H&M Jacket £34.99
I love sparkle and so this jacket obviously stood out to me. I will have to go to H&M to see this in real life to make sure it is not tack central! This is totally a Christmas dinner jacket. This is the second time I've mentioned Christmas. Crikes.

Topshop Embellished Cage Vest £36
I think this top calls for a tan! I like the 'cage' design and the smudged pattern.  It looks floaty - good for those dinner and drinks evenings!

Chelsea's Picks:

This week I've gone for a pretty ecclectic mix of items - hope you like!

1. Next Berry V Cut Peep Toe Shoe Boots (£35)

I have been on a quest to find a pair of black high heeled shoe boots to replace my beloved ASOS Tweedy ones that I wore into the ground before they were discontinued. Whilst browsing I came across these fro Next. I will continue the search for the perfect black shoe boot but in the meantime these ones, in the colour of the season, will keep me going. I love the deep V at the front and the peep-toe adds a bit of a dressy touch.

2. Ted Baker Paage Tapestry Print Short (£89)

I really love the print on these shorts. If you go to the website and zoom in you will see that the print is almost pixelated, a sort of cross-stitch effect (probably why they are called tapestry). Wear with black opaque tights to carry you through winter!

3. Mango Printed Photo T-Shirt (£14.99)

I really like the design on this t-shirt and can well imagine, as I have said, wearing it with some indigo skinny jeans and the Next shoe boots for a rock chick look. I like that it is sleeveless and for £14.99 it's a bargain too!

4. Monsoon Fusion Jaguar Animal Print Coat (£85)

There is ever such a feint tint of berry to this leopard, sorry, jaguar print coat. I think the darker print stops it looking tacky (always a danger with leopard print) and I love that it's double breasted - it makes it seem better quality somehow! I can imagine myself all cosied up in it, hands in pockets this winter.

5. Forever 21 Metallic Dots Swing Dress (£19.75)

This is a bit of a random edition to what has been a very Autumnul looking selection of picks. It's pastel, it's summery and has a shimmer effect thanks to the metallic dots. OK, so I probably wouldn't be able to wear it until next Summer but I may just decide to throw over H&M jacket from Naomi's picks and brace my legs for the cold as I head to a Christmas party!

So, we got there in the end! What are your Autumn/Winter/late Summer picks??

Love Naomi and Chelsea xx
