Girl Seeking…

Girl seeking… the perfect LBD for NYE? Don’t panic, we’re on it like a sonnet.

The party season is officially upon us, but are you ready to see in 2012 in style?!

 Free People, £56.14

Uh-oh… NYE.

Okay, don’t panic. So what if you completely forgot about New Years Eve, the party night of the year, because you were too busy freaking about your Christmas shopping? Really, you were just being selfless. Well, to reward your good natures OMB! have a trick up our sleeves.

Forget the Boxing day sales, in store or other wise (how annoying is it when you fill up your basket online, and by the time you get to the check out the items have already sold out?!!) try –

They have hand picked both designer and high street dresses for your shopping pleasure AND are currently offering a 15% discount on LBD Boutique products.

Quontum, £60. LBD Boutique – get 15% off!

We absolutely LOVE their Select Sale – if you’re looking for something extra special, take a look at this selection of designer dresses at HUGE discounts…

Phoebe Couture by Kay Unger, NOW £126 was £315!


Girl seeking… Ankle boots. Trendy but practical please?

The temperatures are dropping and those festive Coca-Cola ads are back on our televisions… yup, winter is here. If like me, your toes have lately been feeling like they’re about to drop off (if you can feel them at all) then you’re probably scouring the high street for a good pair of boots.

The perfect boots would of course be heeled (feminine) but not a 4 inch stiletto heel (ridiculous), compatible with jeans and dresses, and warm (real leather helps). Sound difficult to find?

Here are a few OMB! favourites…

Topshop £75

Ted Baker £165

Dune £110

River Island £70

Office £60

Girl Seeking: Black and White Tuxedo Jacket

So, I was on a recent shopping trip with our lovely Beauty Editor Amy, when she randomly (as she does), she turns to me and says ‘You know what I want, I really want a black and white blazer. You know… with the trimming?’ At first, I honestly had no idea what she meant. And yet in every shop I couldn’t help but search for this ambiguous, but undoubtedly fabulous, jacket. Which, gave me an idea for a blog feature.

Girl seeking? I’ll find.
