This week I create three outfits from up-and-coming online store, The Student Boutique.
The Student Boutique was created in March 2010 by Candice Edwards, a Marchrones proprietor, with one thing in mind: to sell ‘student fashion’ for ‘student prices’. Since then, the online store has boomed with students from around the country purchasing their diverse range of clothing and accessories.
This wishlist is all about playful prints with a touch of minimalist accessories. Unfortunately The Student Boutique do not sell shoes, nevertheless I hope you enjoy the looks!
Here they are from clockwise round:
White Bow Headband, £4 –This lovely white bow headband will add a touch of ‘cuteness’ to the look. This headband will accentuate the cream ribbons on the playsuit, and will go well with the playful/vintage vibe the outfit has to offer.
Blue & Cream Ribbon Print Playsuit, £18 – Print playsuits are in fashion this summer with musical mogul/fashionista Pixie Lott featuring them in her new Lipsy Collection. So naturally I had to feature a print playsuit in This Week’s Wishlist! I love the shade of blue contrasting the cream ribbons – this print is not only ‘functional’ for the daytime, but dress this baby up with some cute cream heels and you will be ready to paint the town ‘blue’!
Antique Effect Gold Owl Ring, £3 – Yes I know, another gold ring – what can I say? I just cannot resist a pretty ring when I see one! Owl jewellery seems to be taking the high-street world by storm at the moment with owl necklaces, earrings and rings popping up in Topshop and New Look, to name a few. This gold ring will add a touch of ‘vintage’ and ‘antiquity’ feel to the look because of the gold effect on the ring and will complete the outfit perfectly.
Mint Coloured Flower Print Tulip Dress, £18 – This is a floral dress with a twist! The bra-like panels on the dress not only accentuates your boobs, but pair this with the accessories below, and you have yourself a winning on-trend outfit with a twist.
Black/Hematite Bangle, £5.50 – Why be plain and boring with dainty accessories when you can add a touch of ‘rock and roll’ into your look? This black jewel bangle will clash well with the floral dress and will make it a great outfit for the festival season. Think Poppy Delevigne but without the Belstaff biker jacket.
Diamante Skull Clutch Bag, £27 – To complete the look with the most expensive item on This Week’s Wishlist, I have included a diamante skull clutch bag into the outfit. This will add to the ‘tough rock chick’ look and for the price, is well worth it.
Leopard Print Cut out Dress, £13 – Completing the focus on the Spring/Summer 2011 print trend; I have picked this daring leopard print cut out dress for only £13! Similar statement print dresses have been seen on the likes of Brooklyn Decker, Tamara Mellon and Jaclyn Smith and if they can pull this off, so can you! Because of the cut outs in the dress, you have to be careful with the fine line of ‘baring too much flesh’. So aside from the cute bangle below, team this dress with a lovely black crop jacket to make your look more stylish and sophisticated.
Gold Jet Stone Cuff Bangle, £5.50 –This accessory is the finishing touch for outfit three and works well with the leopard print dress. To make it even more fashionable and unique with the current tribal trend, try wearing the bangle on top of your arm for a more noticeable way of showing off your bargain bangle.
That’s another wishlist complete for this week; look out for next week’s wishlist featuring three outfits I have created from another prestigious online store, ASOS.
