Vinted Christmas Wishlist

A & C: Christmas is one of our most favourite times of the year, and we love nothing more than shopping at Christmas – so when the lovely team at Vinted asked us to put together a wishlist from their catalogue, we jumped at the chance! Vinted is a fantastic app and website which offers an endless array of fashion and accessory choices from one base. Annie recently reviewed the app, so click here for the full lowdown. So let’s get on to our wishlists!

A:

 9394873

Fedora Hat – £8.00

I’ve been after one of these for AGES, and I really love the shape of this one, plus its black so can be worn with pretty much the whole of my wardrobe!

8733035

Next Owl Boot Toppers £6.90 + P&P

Heheheheh I probably wouldn’t buy these for myself, but I couldn’t not include them and if someone bought them for me as a present I would love them! Owl boot toppers for Two Little Owls? Amazing. I probably wouldn’t wear these with anything other than wellies, but they would look great with them so totally worth it. Originally priced at £15, another bargain!

8545465

French Connection Gold Sequin £33.50 + P&P

This is PERFECT for Christmas. I love tunic/swing shape dresses (they hide the lumpy bits I don’t want people to see). And this one is beyond beautiful. I love it so much, and it would look great for a Christmas party, or even to wear on Christmas day! Originally £120, and this isn’t brand new, but if you’re looking for a bargain designer dress this is ideal.

9871915

New Look Tartan Cape £16 + P&P

I have been on the look out for a tartan cape for ages now, and I love the colours in this one. Chloe has a monochrome one which suits her perfectly (click here to see it!), and I love to steal it from time to time but the colours just don’t suit me. This is definitely on my Christmas list though!

C:

Urban Outfitters Tie-Dye Camisole Dress £25 + P&P

I love tie dye and I love dresses… so as soon as I saw this I knew I had to add it to my wish list! I would wear this with tights, ankle boots and my vintage leather jacket for a Christmas party.

BooHoo Christmas Jumper £9

A Christmas wish list wouldn’t be complete without a Christmas jumper now would it?! I always wear one on Christmas day, and for £9 this is an absolute bargain! Definitely going on my Christmas list.

Miss Selfridge Gold Metallic Skirt £15

I am in love with this! It is so perfect for a Christmas party, the gold pattern makes it super festive! The skater style also suits me, as it goes in at the waist. For any of you curvy ladies like me, this would be perfect for giving you that hourglass shape!

photo 1-18

Miss Selfridge Sheer Pink, Encrusted Collar Blouse £28

I picked this as I thought it would look amazing with the gold skirt! I love wearing skater skirts with a sheer blouse tucked in. The collar is also beautiful and adds even more bling to the outfit (you can never have too much!)

Have you guys ever used Vinted? It is such a good way to get a bargain! Let us know what you think of our wish lists! #twolittleowls

#dearsally : Long Tall Sally Holiday Wishlist

C: for those of you lovelies who have met Annie and I, you will be well aware that I am almost 6ft. This can cause a lot of problems when trying to buy both clothing essentials and fashionable pieces – seriously, trousers and pyjama bottoms are always ankle (knee) swingers on me! I have always shopped at Long Tall Sally for my jeans, pj’s and long tops, so when they asked me to do a Christmas wishlist for them I jumped at the chance! The quality of their clothes is fantastic and their customer service is always fab! So anyway, lets get to the looks I have designed!

Christmas Shopping

I went for a casual, comfy look as when you are rushing around Christmas shopping you need easily removable layers for when going in and out of shops! Shopping can also be stressful, so comfort is key! I would team these with the Chuck Naylor Converse Long Tall Sally also sell here.

1. Rip and Repair Boyfriend Jean £60

2. Jersey Marl Batwing Top £22

3. Throw on Knit Cardigan £45

Christmas Party

Trying to get dresses that are long enough to be socially acceptable for a party is a nightmare for me, so I assumed I would pick a dress for this outfit… then I saw this jump suit and absolutely fell in love! I love jumpsuits but from any other shop they result in the dreaded camel toe – not an acceptable look for any occasion. These boots are AMAZING too, and I would accessorise simply with this beaded bag from New Look.

Ponte Belted Jumpsuit £75

Double Zip Suede Ankle Boots £110

Christmas Day

On Christmas Day you want to look festive, yet comfortable and stylish, which is why I went for skinny jeans, a Christmas jumper and these Chelsea boots. It’s illegal to not wear a Christmas jumper in my house on Christmas day, but the rest of the outfit makes it modern and warm.

Robin Sweater £55

Coated Slim Leg Jean in “Wine” £50

Chelsea Leather Ankle Boots £95

Gift Ideas

And lastly, some gift ideas that a perfect for both beautifully tall ladies and anyone else! Long Tall Sallys pyjamas are my absolute favourite, and I never wear anything else, so I obviously chose those and some lovely clashing tartan slippers. I love tartan so much, that I also picked out a beautiful scarf that is super on trend right now so would be loved by everyone! And lastly… the kimono. I don’t think I have seen anything this amazing, ever. I love it so much, I might have to order it rather than wait to see if I get it for Christmas!

Vintage Rose PJ Bottom £25

Tartan Check Scarf £18

Velvet Devore Longline Kimono £85

Checky Slipper Boot £25

Do any of you guys shop at Long Tall Sally? Let us know what you think to the outfits I have designed and the gift ideas! Hopefully it’s created some inspiration for all of you tall lovelies and your Santa lists!#twolittleowls

Chloe’s Autumn Fashion Wishlisht

C: I know, I know… it is still August/Summer and we should still be sunning it up in our bikinis and shorts. Unfortunately it is cold and rainy here so I got excited and created my Autumn wish list! I love this time of year, especially in terms of fashion. Cardigans and bobble hats as well as being snuggled up in bed with a hot chocolate – what more could you want! So here are my four top fashion picks for the coming season:

*Obviously as I (unfortunately) do not own these items, these photos are from the companies websites 🙂

Urban Renewal Vintage Surplus Beanie Hat in Olive – £12 from Urban Outfitters. I love woolly hats and way too many. I do not have one in this amazing Olive colour though which is perfect for Autumn. I definitely need this. Especially to go with my new hair. 

Pins & Needles Chenille Tassle Kimono in Plum – £48 from Urban Outfitters. Knitted AND has tassels?! I haven’t got a maroon/plum coloured cardigan (kimono if you are a grown up) and it is one of my favourite colours! This is perfect for adding to just jeans and a tshirt to add some style or over a dress as I would wear it.

Dr Martens Castel Boots in Cherry Red – £100 from Dr Marten. I love Dr Martens and have wanted some for years! Then everyone started wearing them and I got put off. However, I love this pair so much I NEEEED them. A black pair would be more sensible… but as I hate stuff matching I would wear these with pretty much everything anyway.

People Tree Organic Cotton Smock Dress In Check Print – £65 from Asos. This dress is the perfect shape to flatter my figure. I would wear this with tights, boots and a cardigan (so probably everything else mentioned in this wish list) as the perfect Autumn dress. 

I hope you guys have enjoyed reading my wish list as much as I did making it! If it wasn’t for buying a house next week… I would have bought all of these already! Let me know what you think! #twolittleowls

The Lust List: Annie’s Part 2

A: So here’s the next post in my Lust List series, I posted my top MAC lusts here yesterday.

Pixi Beauty is another brand I’ve had my eyes on for a while now, it’s been popping up all over the blogosphere and their website is beautiful. I haven’t got any of their products, but the packaging looks really high end, and I adore the cute and coordinating mint green throughout all of the ranges. There’s also LOADS of reviews on the website. I mean tonnes, and every single one that I have read is so complimentary of the brand. Another thing I love about the website are the descriptions of what each product is formulated to do, and the natural ingredients they contain and how they benefit you.

Here’s what I’m desperate to get hold of…

glow-tonic-08feb14-web_1

Glow Tonic

“Oxygenating. Exfoliating facial glow tonic. It helps tone, firm and tighten the skin. It removes dead skin cells for healthier looking skin. For normal to dry, aging and sensitive skin. Alcohol free.”

I’m sure this is at the top of a lot of beauty wishlists right now, it’s so highly reviewed and said to really give your skin a healthy ‘glow’.  You can buy it here on their website for £16.

Pixi_Cat_Liner_Brush_1395822488_main

Cat Liner Brush

“A super slim angled brush that gives eyes a feline flick with minimal effort. This brush can be used with gel liner, liquid liner or powder shadow and is the perfect tool to create a retro eye.”

I am super intrigued about cat liner brushes because although I love wearing liquid eyeliner every day, it does become a bit of a chore. I can’t break the habit though, my eyes feel naked without it! I really want to give this a try and have a go at creating the look with eyeshadow, for a less defined and more natural finish. The brush costs £12 and you can buy it here.

flawless-beauty-primer-close-04mar14-web

Flawless Beauty Primer

“This product is my holy grail! It hydrates my skin, gives me a radiant glow all day, plus makes my makeup stay put.” -Petra

“Even, flawless skin tone is the sign of youthful healthy skin. Sometimes we need a little help with the glow from within. This primer is the perfect solution; the formula is loaded with skin loving ingredients. Formula contains powerful anti-aging and skin fortifying benefits. Formula suitable for all skin types.”

Beneficial Ingredients and what they do:

  • Pearl extract for revitalization, protection and anti-aging
  • Vitamin E increases skin elasticity.
  • Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant
  • Vitamin C has revitalizing and nourishing benefits.

As Petra, the creator of Pixi Beauty, says herself this is her holy grail. Pixi Beauty use so many beneficial ingredients to help improve any of those pesky flaws we have, and this product covers them all. You can find it here for £20.50 – pretty pricey so I would hope that it lives up to all of it’s expectations!

56529

Shea Butter Lip Balm in Honey Nectar

“Awaken lips with this super-nourishing balm. The unique formula is rich but lightweight and gives a gorgeous wash of colour to lips – it’s the perfect pick-me-up anytime! Packed full of beneficial ingredients, this balm soothes lips immediately & nourishes them long term.”

Pixi’s lip balms contain shea butter to nourish and vitamin E to protect, which is perfect for an everyday balm – but the colour range also has beautiful brights for a more dressy look too. My favourite is the Honey Nectar – a lovely nude/brown which is my favourite tone for lip colours. These are really reasonably priced at £8 so I may just have to treat myself, if you want to do the same click here!

Chloe’s Summer Wishlist

C: it has been such beautiful weather the past few days that I have been dreaming of my new summer wardrobe/make up. I love it when the seasons change and you have the perfect excuse for a little retail therapy, so here’s what I have been lusting after.

photo-13

 

Topshop Leaf Print Sundress £38. I absolutely adore the print on this, and it is the perfect comfy dress to throw on when its hot weather. I might have to invest.

Maxfactor 3 in 1 foundation. I have heard great things about this and I really want to try it. This is perfect for festivals etc when you want good coverage/a primer but don’t want to waste time applying make up. 3 steps in 1? I am sold.

Topshop Giggle Geek Shoes £30. I love these/I am a geek so even the name fits me perfectly. I think these would be the perfect summer work shoes as they are still smart and not opened toed. I would have ordered them already, but I have to try shoes on as I am awkward/between sizes.

Revlon Lip Butters. Once again I have heard amazing things about these and to be honest it doesn’t take a lot of persuasion to get me to buy new lipsticks. I can’t decide on a colour yet so if you have recommendations please do let me know, but these sound perfect for low maintenance summer lips!

Annie’s Summer Wishlist

A: So Summer has arrived and hopefully the Sun is going to stay for a while. I thought I’d put together a wish list of all the things I’m lusting after at the moment because I haven’t done one in a while.

genie_lip_paint_large_2_1

Firstly, this Genie Lipstick from Barry M. I spotted this on The Oxford Owl’s blog and have been looking out for it ever since, she posts some really good product reviews – click here and check them out! Don’t worry – this isn’t green lipstick. Well, it is BUT is magically changes colour when it’s applied – to you ‘perfect personal shade of pink’. The formula adapts to the Alkali in your lips, to give you your own individual shade of lipstick. Clever hey?! It’s meant to be really long lasting too, so I’m looking forward to giving this a go! I’ve found it for £4.49 on the Barry M website here.

High_Beam_Hijab

Next, I’m after a highlighter. I really want to try out the ‘dewey’ look and I think one of the best ways to achive it is with a cream highlighter. I know I’m pretty late to the game with this one, but as far as I can see, Benefit’s High Beam is going to be the best. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know!!

62C03GNAV_large

I’ve been looking for a midi-length skirt for a while now, and I think this navy spotted one by The Whitepepper at Topshop is perfect. I love the button through front panel and the way that it sits – high and on the waist. It’ll be perfect for those days that I want to cover up but still be summery. It’s £48 and can be found here.

18804_1

Lastly, I am 100% going to be buying an ice-lolly mould this summer. I love making ice-lollies at home because you can make them exactly the way you want, and this Lollyring mould from Lakeland is adorable! You can make 6 rings in 3 different designs, and I know my nephews and niece will love making them. The set is £4.99 and you can buy it here.

What’re your Summer must haves? #twolittleowls

Chloe’s May beauty and fashion wish list

C: Firstly I would like to apologise for the lack of post yesterday, I know we usually post every day but I have not been able too whilst Annie has been away – but she is back on Friday! Yay! So lets crack on with it… my May (yes, May!) wish list!

photo-10

Vans Chauffette shoes in pale blue (available here) for £45. I love Vans, and they are the only trainer type shoes I ever wear. I think these will be the perfect pair for Summer! I could’t find a good picture of them but these are pale blue with white polka dots!

Topshop Cream Blushes are only £7 and I have never used a cream blush before so I think these bargains will be the perfect place to start! I haven’t decided on a colour yet, so if anyone has any recommendations please do let me know!

This crop top is from New Look and is only £14.99. If you regularly read our blog you will know I love anything tartan/checked so this is right up my street! Would look amazing with my denim, high waisted shorts if it ever gets warm!

Last but certainly not least is this Mac lipstick (Creme Cup) £15. Annie got a Mac lipstick for her birthday and I was super duper jealous. I also have a tendency to buy bright, fun lipsticks and never any that are suitable for every day wear, so after reading several reviews I have picked this one as my next purchase!
