blush and arty



dress: yayer
headband: new look (v.old!)
watch: swatch
sunglasses: H&M

Surprisingly havent seen many "Arty-a-likes" on the high street, I always thought they would be the most copied must have item out this summer! Much like the Alexa was last year, Although I have been toying with the idea of getting a YSL Arty and hinting to my mother that I wanted one for my birthday! (TOMORROW GUYZ!), This River Island ring is satisfying my desire for a Arty right the time being!

Another sweet item from from Yayer too,  Seriously one of the loveliest and most coveted online shops about at the moment. This dress saved me from a night out nightmare when I had nothing at all to wear apart from what I had lurking in the back of my car. Luckily I picked up this parcel earlier that day!

  1. oh my word that dress, I love the colour! the RI ring really goes too, did they have any other colours , or just pink? I also love the headband, you have that festival look goin' on too.

  2. I saw that ring yesterday online and thought exactly the same thing. I might have to order it or wait til I go back to uni to pick it up. It looks really nice for an inspired piece.

  7. Hi Lily, I know you say that you don't like your hair but I must say that it always looks lovely to me, it makes me miss my long longs!
    I think you're completely right about Yayer, I find myself with an extremely long shopping list from that website... Now I fear that I may have to add that lovely dress to my never-ending list! Or at least see if they have it in another colour, it looks perfect on you, especially for summer :D

    Sorry for the super long comment!

  23. Gorgeous dress, the colour really suits you and that ring is lovely. I would really love a YSL Arty ring, but could never spend that much on a piece of jewellery.

  31. Love the dress - what a gorgeous colour. That dusty pink colour really suits you. Happy Birthday for tomorrow! x

  32. I have an turquiose Arty ring I got for Christmas which has tarnished really badly. I know it's at the low end of YSL goods but it's still a lot of money to spend on a piece of costume jewellery. Having said that I still love it to bits and want others in different colours and designs (Have you seen the wooden one? OH MY GOD!). I think I'll eventually get it gold plated as it's starting to turn my finger green.

  44. Beautiful colors, gorgeous ring!!! I can see why you love it. Happy Birthday tomorrow!! :)

  45. id love an arty ring too, so lush, you are right though, so strange they've not been copied to death like most things. probs a good thing though, overkill like with the alexa would be sad.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Loveee this dress, it's gorgeous. I'd never even heard of Yayer until I read about it on your blog, and now I can't get enough of it! So good for my summer wardrobe, but not so much for my poor bank balance.

    And I know what you mean about the lack of fake Arty rings. I've seen a coral ring in H&M and one in Topshop, but other than that they seem to be hiding!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love your ring! That colour looks great on you too x

    It would be mine

  80. Amazing dress!
    & i agree, there is definitely a lack of arty-look-a-likes on the high street. This etsy seller has a really good copy though! http://www.etsy.com/listing/73216903/killer-chunky-gold-finger-ring
