The perfect pandora present

By Sarah Hugill

It’s official i’m obsessed with Pandora so when the girls brought me this oxidised silver flower ring, for my 20th it showed they know me all too well! These Pandora rings are great as you can build them up with additional rings to make your own creation, at your fingertips literally!

“That’s one hell of a ring!”

By Sarah Redman

20131118-220059.jpg

This my new ring from H&M and yes, it is a bit of a knuckle duster to be perfectly honest. But I love the patterns.

I have been getting so many comments when I wear this, with everyone from my radio lecturer at uni to the barrister in my local Nero’s… and I quote:

“That’s one hell of a ring! How does it even work?”

That has been the main concern of those commenting – that I could still move my hand, so I will assure you I can and I barely notice I’m wearing it, maybe because I will wear rings like Phoebe from Friends and it won’t bother me – who knows!

End of Summer Final Sales

By Sarah Redman

Its is nearing the end of September, Autumn is officially settling in, the jumpers are creeping out, boots, scarves, you name it – the winter wardrobe is here. That can only mean one thing, the end of the summer sales, okay it may be slim pickings, but the final discounts have been applied and if you are lucky you will get a great bargain! I was recently in Fenwicks and wondered over to their Wearhouse Sale section, there wasn’t much left in my size in the way of clothes, but never one to pass up some new jewellery, i had a quick browse and came up trumps.

This is my other purchase, my new Diamante ring – £1.00 (Sale price)

I thought this was a great purchase and have worn it almost everyday since. This ring can be easily stacked with others you already have to great a bolder look or worn on its own for a minimalistic look. It is now available as part of a set on their website (not in the sale).

Outfits for the company blog awards

By Sarah Hugill

The Sarah’s style blog was extremely pleased to be invited to the Company Blog awards 2013, in partnership with New Look, as we were shortlisted for the best blogging duo!

Deciding what we were going to wear took some thinking, we wanted to make sure we were dressed appropriately for the occasion while still feeling comfortable and expressing our personal styles.

I took a trip to London… and yes you guessed it ended up in Topshop and was instanly attracted to a bright, heavily patterned, body-con mid dress. After trying it on I was sold. It was eye catching and fitted the description of my ideal outfit… as i’m sure many of you do, I get an idea of exactly what I want to buy before I even hit the shops.

I teamed the dress with a leather jacket, from Red Herring, one so that I didn’t freeze and two because it gave a more edgy, less formal look.

I wore a pair of simple, yet classic black wedges from New Look. I thought they would be comfy due to the wedge heel, but the platform is not large enough in my opinion to balance the height, but no pain no gain! Besides, I’m sure a pair of stilettos would have been more painful! I decided to match my shoes and a clutch bag, as my dress added enough colour to my outfit. I chose a black silk clutch bag, purchased from New Look, complimented by a large bow on the front as it fitted all the essentials I needed.

I then chose a silver necklace (also from New Look) which dressed up the outfit whilst not making it too over powering, as I was already in a fairly bold dress.

Sarah Redman opted for an emerald green tunic dress from Asos, which Sarah decied to dress up with accessories.

Sarah (R) wore adventurous peep- toe, blue and aqua shoes from Zara, which she managed to walk in pretty well… Lets just say I was less quick on my feet!

Sarah brightened up her outfit with her clutch bag, which also matched her shoes (great minds think alike!) Her bag was from Biba, and do not be fooled, despite the clutch looking fairly small it was like a Mary Poppins moment. The amount of items that could fit within the bag was rather impressive, the material was fairly stretchy making it practical yet still stylish.

Sarah teamed her dress with a classic black jacket from Miss Captain, giving a chic feel to her image.

Sarah R blog awards

Sarah (R) never fails to wear a gorgeous ring, and for the blog awards there was no exception. The emerald stone matched her dress, while the amber stone contrasted adding extra interest to her outfit, a birthday present bought from a small boutique in the Pantiles, Tunbridge Wells.

The necklace Sarah (R) chose was another gem from Zara, the sapphire, ruby red and light green stones added texture and dressed up Sarah (R)’s dress, adding to her elegant look.

The whole experience of attending the blog awards was great, we are extremely grateful to all those who voted for us, it was amazing to be selected out of thousands of other fellow bloggers! Besides, it gave us an excuse to buy a whole new outfit – the bank account may have had a shock but we certainly had smiles on our faces!
