I recently came across a brand called OppoSuits and they have such an amazing range of christmas suits for both men and women. You can go for something simple or something a bit different. I chose the Lumberjackie as I love tartan print, it is so fashionable right now and it really does remind me of christmas.

It arrived really well packaged in a box and had instructions on how to wash it. i was really impressed with the price and the quality. This particular one was about £55.

They have so many great options for men too, I love the one that looks like it is covered in $ bills. Really funky if you have an event you want to wear something snazzy to.

JACKET

  • 1 Inside pocket
  • Back slit
  • Front flap pockets
  • Fully lined
  • Padded Shoulders

SKIRT

  • Back slit
  • Button and zipper closure
  • Elastic side panels for a custom fit
  • Fully lined

FABRIC & CARE

  • Iron at low temperature
  • Machine Washable
  • Open woven fabric

I went for a size 10 as it comes as a suit the jacket and skirt are both the same size. I usually wear a 10 jacket and an 8/10 skirt so this was a perfect fit. Teamed with a plain black t shirt I think it looked really cool!

Would you wear a two piece suit? Would you go for something more plain or more daring?

I recently got a pair or new trousers to wear in the nice weather from Hippie pants. You can also wear them as a jumpsuit which I think is great!

I love how comfortable they are and the great thing is that they are stretchy and they are one size so will fit most people. They also do a plus size version which I think is great so they cater to a more variety of sizes.

The standard ones:

Size: One size fits most

Waist: 24 to 41 inches (61 to 106 cm)

Length: 41 inches (104 cm)
Plus size:
Size: One size fits all
Waist: 41 to 56 inches (104 to 142 cm)
Length: 40 inches (102 cm)

The ones I got can be found here. I really love the colours and the pattern. They are such good quality and really cooling to wear.

Would you ever wear something like this that can be worn in different ways? Reminds me a bit of those tube scarfs you can wear about ten different ways!

Colour Class

Anyone who knows a thing or two about the many kinds of fancy colour diamonds are bound to be aware of the rocky journey champagne gemstones have endured over the years. Indeed, although these rocks are amongst some of the more sought-after diamonds on the market today, they were not always the preferred choice of diamond buyers across the globe. Australians keen to learn more about the reasons why champagne diamonds are selected by people from all walks of life should visit some of the more established brokers of a range of fancy colour diamond stones.

Of course, by being more aware of how these gems are graded for quality, potential purchasers should feel more assured that they are making the right choice in rocks to be incorporated into their engagement or wedding rings design. Some of the more interesting factors related to the grading of champagne diamonds are listed below:

1. Hue, tone and saturation are considered when grading the colour of these gems

2. For clarity – the fewer visible flaws in the stone – the better

3. With cut – the more proportion it has – the more brilliance the stone has

4. Brilliance is less important for darker champagne diamonds

5. The Gemological Institute of America does not use the term “Champagne” on reports

Dark and Handsome

Although it is true to say that most diamonds mined have an undesirable yellowish or brownish tint, coloured precious stones of the champagne variety are still very much in demand. However, it must be said that the most valuable type of champagne diamonds consists of a much darker hue than the typical yellowish diamonds, which some experts consider to be of a much lower grade of stone.

Couples convinced that the champagne diamond is what they will buy should be easily able to find the right cut and shape of rock most suitable for the unique engagement rings from jewellers such as Certified Diamond Network. Of course, shoppers of precious stones of the diamond variety should take the time to carry out some research on all the colour fancy stones available to buy in their part of the world. Aussies who look at reputable websites will be able to learn a lot about the history of fancy colour stones that can be bought in their part of Australia. Indeed, there is a wealth of information on such websites regarding these highly regarded gemstones throughout the globe.

Quality Counts

It stands to reason if we have saved up all year in order to purchase champagne diamonds for our wedding that we will want to ensure we do not make a mistake in the design of bands we finally choose. Of course, by being more knowledgeable about how these unique types of rocks are graded, this purchasing goal should be much easier to achieve. As part of the natural brown diamond family, champagne diamonds are considered to be quite special due to the fact they contain nitrogen which is trapped during the formation of these rare rocks.

And as most champagne diamonds come from the Argyle Mine in Australia, people hoping to source one of these stones to be used in their engagement or wedding ring designs could not be in a better part of the world. Indeed, having the main source of these exquisite and versatile rocks on your doorstep should be quite inspiring for couples set on buying champagne diamonds for a special occasion. However, just because these classy rocks are mostly bought by people planning to get married, it does not mean to say that they are not suitable for less formal events.

For my recent seaside getaway I wanted a few new clothing items to wear but didn’t want to spend too much. I came across the Krisp basic collection and they have so many great products at such reasonable prices.

I bought them all in a 10, I am usually a 8/10 but would always prefer to go for a 10 so things aren’t too tight. All of them were true to size.

Rose print knot front dress in turquoise.

This dress was £12.99 which I think is great for a dress. It fitted really well and was a very soft material and well made. I liked the tie feature and loved the colour.

Off the shoulder blouse in aqua.

This was £10 and I thought it would be good to wear of an evening with black jeans. It could be worn with any colour jeans or leggings. It cam with a matching colour vest which was joined to it on the inside, so no need to worry about it being see-through.

Tie dye maxi dress in turquoise.

I love maxi dresses on holiday as I tend to eat too much, so it is something comfy to wear but not restricting. This one was £10 and it honestly is so comfortable, its basically t shirt material and so easy to wear. It was slightly too long as I am short (5ft2) but the great thing with the elasticated waist part is that you can just fold it up to adjust the length 🙂

Turn up sleeve maxi dress in black.

Very similar to the previous maxi dress but this one had fold over sleeves. The material is similar as it is like a t shirt. This one was £14.99 which is still a great price. I also hooked this up slightly. I think plain black dresses are a staple in any wardrobe. I added a necklace and the outfit was complete!

What do you usually ear on holiday?

I previously mentioned Boho Betty in this post. They offer such stunning jewellery at an affordable price. You can create custom stacks of bracelets which I think is a pretty cool idea.

The stack I went for was:

Ziggy Blue Beaded Friendship Bracelet £14.50

Gim Orange Beaded Friendship Bracelet £22.00

Both bracelets are stunning and can be worn separately or worn together as a stack. You can buy as many as you want and have a larger stack if you wanted.

I think these would make a good gift idea as you could buy one every birthday/Christmas etc for someone and help them grow their collection for them to mix and match.

The bracelets are great quality and look a lot more expensive than they were!

I love how they are easily adjustable to fit a wide variety of sizes. I like the detail of the back, whether it has beads on the end or tassels, the closures are beautiful.

Really impressed and will be adding to my collection soon 🙂
