You know what I love? Sugared almonds! That thick sugar shell and soft, sweet nut within - eat ten of them and your halfway to diabetes town, but I challenge you to just eat one. Not only are they delicious, but the look bloody lovely too - I would love a mini prom dress made out of sugared almonds, might be some bare flesh by the end of the day, having a little snack when I'm hungry.

All those lovely candy shells in pastel shades are so hot right now - you can't move through the highstreet without feeling the sugary vibes from all the sweet shades. Usually I am a fan of greys or bold and bright, but I think pastel shades have won me over, I have already bought a pair of mint jeans and once I have more than lint in my pockets I plan to buy more....most likely on the realistic side of things.

ULTIMATE: Tate Dress, Goat - £450; Durham Green Leather Biker, J Brand - £829.50; Leather Pumps, Gianvito Rossi - £415; The Rockstud Medium Neon Leather Trapeze Bag, Valentino - £1,465.
Total: £3159.50

REALISTIC:  Lace Cape Dress, Warehouse - £58, Light Green Cropped Biker Jacket, River Island - £60; New Look Turret Purple Sling Back Heels, ASOS - £17.99; PU Shopper Bag, Next - £28.
Total: £163.99

Just a saving of 3 grand, I'm not sure it's worth it!

What do you prefer, the Ultimate look or the Realistic look?

  2. I love mint green at the moment. I'm wearing my mint green jeans to death.

    I prefer the ultimate jacket but the rest is realistic. You can do my shopping.

  3. I don't think I'd go for the ultimate, ever. The copies these days are so good, aren't they?. x

  4. Haha, I would love to have a dress made out of potato chips, wouldn't last a day though :D
    I look like a corpse with pastels, but I do like them on other people :D

  5. Hi beautiful,
    I was just browsing through & stumbled upon your lovely blog - It looks gorgeous and it has interesting posts that I can relate to. I'm now following you via gfc, keep in touch love x

  6. I would never go for the ultimate even f I was rich as I don't think I could justify spending that much money on a single dress. That Ultimate dress does look gorgeous though x

  7. They're not THAT much different, but they are very much different in price! £3000 is just ridiculous, oh we can only dream cant we?! xx

  8. I'm also not a fan of candy colours, but yes this year the aqua, turquoise and mint greens really convinced me! I've been watching a similar dress like the one on the left above on Ebay for quite some time now and it will be mine if I can win an auction or find it as "buy it now" :)

  9. I love that J Brand jacket, I really want a pastel leather! The Warehouse dress is so pretty too x
