ASOS Saved Items Wishlist #3 – Pastel Cats

By August 8, 2014 Wishlist

Howdy! It’s that time again… here is another ASOS Saved Items wishlist, ooh yeah baby! I haven’t actually ordered much from ASOS for a while… but I expect I will sometime soon after looking back at all these pretty things…

asos saved items lazy oaf check skirtWEIRDO BEANIE // BLUE GRID MIDI SKIRT

Weirdo Beanie: This is from Lazy Oaf, and it’s been on the ASOS site for ages now! I keep having the ‘I can’t wait for the cosiness of A/W’ feeling which I think is why I am attracted to this! It’s only £6 which for L.Oaf is a total bargain… plus it kind describes who I am…. ‘WEIRDO’… *lols*

Blue Grid Midi Skirt: The reason this attracted me is because of the bold cobalt blue colour. I love it! It’s so striking, yet because of the white I’m sure it would be super duper versatile. This style of skirt with the two zips seems to be popping up, and I would say this is one of the better versions I have seen.

asos saved items lazy oaf cactus hat floral sandalsCACTUS SNAP BACK // FLORAL SANDALS

Cactus Snap Back: Another Lazy Oaf piece, but from a more recent collection. I don’t really think I would buy this, but I just love the print. Well, I just love cacti right now. In fact, I really want a cactus necklace… hmm! This cap is also pastel, and you can never go wrong with pastels! 

Floral Sandals: I don’t necessarily love these, but I think the print and the white platform draw me in. They’re super bright, but would look awesome with a good pair of jeans like they’re pictured with. The style isn’t great, but the print is. What d’ya think?

asos saved items tartan bandanna lilac cat dressBLUE TARTAN BANDANNA // LILAC CAT PRINT DRESS

Blue Tartan Bandanna: Like I mentioned, I’m feeling very A/W-ery, so this is right up my street! I feel like the bandanna is making a big come back for the end of this year and this one isn’t half bad. I think with my shorter (it’s growing back though, woop!) hair style this would look super cute! I think with an ASOS code, or with the next sale, I shall snap this up! Cute, cute, cute. Update whilst completing final edit: I remembered I have a green scarf which would work perfectly… money spending tip: look at your scarfs!

Lilac Cat Print Dress: Ever since Susie (Lau) wore a lilac dres from the ASOS Salon collection, I’ve been obsessed with them and this one is just amazing! It has CATS on it! PASTEL CATS. What more could you want?! I love the fit too, it’s totally my style. Very tempting, I must resist it’s beauty!

asos saved items stripey platforms ripped jeansSTRIPEY EYED PLATFORMS // SKINNY RIPPED JEANS

Stripey Eyed Platforms: I can’t remember where I first saw these, but I think it was in some kind of publication (aka, magazine) and they’re kind of… f-ugly (FASHIONABLY ugly… don’t get the wrong idea!). I don’t think they would fit my skinny mini feet, but there is something about them which I just love. It must be the eyes… it has to be.

Skinny Ripped Jeans: Everyone and their dog is going on about skinny ripped jeans and I think I need some! I’m totally into the preppy style they give off and these ones look like my kind of style. I’m either a super duper light jeans or super duper dark jeans which is weird, and these fit in the latter category. The rips are only at the knees which is also a plus… I saw a pair with a rip just below ya’ bum cheek! Ew! Very tempted to purchase these when I can… I think I need them seeing as I only own a pair of mom jeans! 

asos saved items velcro sandals white dressWHITE SPORT STYLE SANDALS // WHITE DRESS

White Sport Style Sandals: I LOVE these! I think the sporty vibe is just awsome. They look really comfortable too… why are there are not more velcro shoes in the world? You get past Year 5 at school and then it’s laces and slip on’s for the rest of your life… Let’s all thank ASOS for bring velcro back in such style. I want these so bad! …Come on Winter sale! COME ON! 

White Dress: There’s a hole in my wardrobe, dear Liza, dear Liza, there’s a hole in my wardrobe, dear Liza, a hole…” A white dressed, bohemian style hole, and this dress would fit perfectly. It’s a beauty… I just love it! I think we all agree I should be payed in ASOS vouchers for these posts… my wardrobe would just be ASOS ASOS ASOS… ‘Oh Tolly, where’s that dress from?’ Topshop… JUST KIDDING! ASOS. 

Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

Wishlist: Getting Ready For Summer

By April 1, 2014 Wishlist

Hello lovely people! Today I have a Wishlist! If you haven’t seen on Twitter, I have been banging on about doing this post for sooo long, and I’m so excited it is finally here! My blog schedule has finally calmed down and I can just chill, so here you go… …Happy April Fools! No tricks here, so don’t worry! 😉

wishlist: Chelsea Doll, Peacocks, New Look & ASOS
Click on the product you like to buy!

White Caged Chunky Block Heel Sandals –
My love for this style sandal is unreal. I found them first on a blog and since them I have been looking for a cheaper equivalent, and what do we have here?! I’m so excited because I will be getting these and that makes me happy! They are just so versatile, and perfect for summer. I’m not a big fan of flat, thin strappy sandals, so these are just perfect!

Pale Blue Spot Crepe Boxy Shirt –
I love pastels, and I love shirts… so what more could I want?! Again, this will be on the way to me soon, but I would probably have preferred the monochrome one, but my size was out of stock so… *insert unhappy face emoiji* I think it will look really nice with a strappy dress I have (was in my old blog header) in spring time, and even nicer on it’s own in the summer!

Fabulous Flatform Sandals –
Another pair of sandals… and no I am not just calling them fabulous for no reason… that is in fact their name! I saw these on Twitter and I absolutely love them! They’re holographic and all colourful, and the straps are that lovely thickness which makes them look all swish. Definitely wish I hadn’t found these now…

Friendship Bracelet Watch –
Ahhh! This is already in my ASOS basket since it has dropped in price! It’s so gorgeous and very ‘festival’ fashion-y, and I just love it to bits! I’m one of those annoying people who love to stack hundreds of bracelets with frayed ends on top of each other, and this would be amazing amongst my collection! Practical and ridiculously cute! If I was made of money, I would get the pastel version too…

Embellished Transparent Waist Belt –
I love clothing or accessories which you can see through… well obviously not t-shirts or pants because that could get a little awkward, but I think I can make an exception for a belt! This is so pretty, but I’m not sure I could spend as much as it is on a thing which will go around my waist. It is adorable though!

Mini Patent PU Skirt –
Ahhh (again)! My love for pastel patent skirts is insane! I honestly could die for one right now. It’s soooo cute! I actually prefer the one from Missguided (here) which is also much cheaper, but they don’t do good images for blog posts… #bloggerproblems

Aztec Bikini –
This bikini is SO SO SO nice! I am obsessed with it! I have a pink frilly one from M&S but the frills get in the way when wearing it underneath other things, so this would be just perfect! It’s such a nice print, and the top is just adorable and totally the right sort of style for erm… my flat chest aha… it’s also such a bargain too! Definitely such a cute piece from a brand such as Peacocks!

Culotte Shorts –
Ever since Zoella’s trip on holiday last year, and her cute outfits featuring her floaty monochrome shorts, I have been wanting a pair! These are plain, but simple, and perfect for spring and summer as they are pastel! I could totally see me wearing the aztec bikini with a floaty kimono over the top. Perfect summer outfit!

Fat Joe’s Sweatshirt –
The most expensive piece of this wishlist comes from Lazy Oaf. I love the whole ‘foodie fashion’ trend, and this is a perfect way to mix pastel in with it. The perfect trendy combination!

#JunkFood French Fries Necklace & Rings –
Chelsea Doll, oh dear Chelsea Doll. You do have the best statement jewellery for people on a budget. These two pieces are insane. After the whole McDonalds or ‘McSchino’ craze, I am in love with these. I want to wear them all day long and just pretend that they are the real Moschino deal. I would like them please, please, PLEASE. *flutters eye lashes*

Thank you so much for reading, and if you like… leave a comment below!

Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

Lazy Oaf Inspired Design Collection

By November 29, 2013 Designs, Fashion

Hello! I’m really excited about this blog post! Don’t get too excited, I’m not working with Lazy Oaf (…although, I wish I was!), but I love the brand so I thought it would be cool to create a Lazy Oaf inspired design collection, as if I was collaborating with them. I hope you like them, and if you do, make sure you tweet this, and maybe, just maybe, Lazy Oaf might see it! 😉 Oh, and Lazy Oaf (or anyone else), please do NOT pinch any of my ideas! Please! 😉

lazy oaf fashion designer teen fashion designer illustrations fashion design ideas collaborationI thought it would be nice to do a sort of mood board so you can see what feel I was going for. Lazy Oaf are like the God of funky prints, modern pop art, food on clothing and just anything awesome. I wanted to take their love of prints, and also their love of shirts and combine them in my own way. My first thoughts were ice cream, and I wanted to do 4 seasons of ice cream. The classic ice cream and Flake would be for Spring, the melting lollipop for Summer, a pumpkin ice cream for Autumn and the ice cream stuck on a tongue for Winter. Unfortunately I had to go with the 3 seasons of ice cream because the Autumn one didn’t work out so well, but none the less I hope you like my little ideas!

lazy oaf fashion designer teen fashion designer illustrations fashion design ideas collaborationSpring/Summer (Ice Cream): Pastel Pink Ice Cream Print Crop Top & Pastel Pink and Blue Ice Cream Print Spot ‘Skort’ with Pom-Pom Trimming 
I really like this because the pastel colours just add that perfect base for all things Spring. I also love how they are quite subtle, but they bring both the top and ‘skort’ to life. The top would be cropped with short sleeves and a high neck line, giving it that 90s, retro feel, which I think Lazy Oaf are all about. The ‘skort’ would have a pom-pom trim which just adds that little bit more texture and layers to the piece, and I think that is what Lazy Oaf often do. I think you could make some really nice outfits from these pieces, whether you like pink, or you just love anything retro! I also love how the ‘skort’ could be used as a piece of beachwear.

These are my two favourite designs because I think they are classic Lazy Oaf. I love how on the blouse and skirt (left), the Frozen Tongue print just pops against the green and blue tie dye. As I said, Lazy Oaf love using shirts with prints, so I had to include one, and I think this one is perfect, and because it has the green in there, it really fits in with the A/W feel. You could pair the two together, or you could wear it is separately, which I think any collection needs to offer. With the top and skirt (right), I think they would be perfect for all seasons because you could easily layer them, and the ice cream print again, just adds that perfect extra boost for a new layer and dimension.

lazy oaf fashion designer teen fashion designer illustrations fashion design ideas collaborationAutumn/Winter Menswear (‘I Scream’): Charcoal Black and White Top with Lazy Oaf in Pink and I Scream Text & Charcoal Black Beanie Hat with Embroidered Melting Ice Lolly and I Scream Text 
I think I had to include some menswear in this mini design collection, because the Lazy Oaf guys are ‘stylish’ haha! I think that these pieces are very ‘Lazy Oaf Guy’-ish (lol)! The top would have Lazy Oaf on the front filled in with the Frozen Tongue print, and would have patches of ‘I Scream’ text on the hem and sleeves. The beanie would have embroidered ‘I Scream’ text and the 2 embroidered Melting Lollies, which I think is a nice contrast between Summer and Winter.

I hope you liked this little design collection, and if you did, please please please leave a comment, or tweet it because wouldn’t it be fabulous if Lazy Oaf saw it?! Urmm.. yes! Thank You 😀

Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx
