Tuesday - Royal Ascot, Sale Bargains and some enabling required!

Hi Gorgeous Ones,

Royal Ascot started today. I am addicted! I love all the Pomp of the queen arriving in her amazing carriages. I watch it live but also Sky Plus it so I can watch the fashion bits again, just in case I missed anything fab the first time around!

I love seeing everybody making such a huge effort, literally dressed in all their finery. Its a lovely sight.

I thought that Tamara Ecclestone looked really nice today in an Alaia dress (and Louboutins!)

Danielle Lineker looked stunning in a Roland Mouret Dress and Chanel Bag

and here she is again handing out a trophy ..................

oops sorry, that is not a trophy. Its Gary and his ears!!!

I thought that Amanda Holden tried too hard and looked a little too twee. Where did she leave the Sheep and staff! Dress was by Azagury

Well I have whittled down my Net a Porter basket from dream like proportion - yesterday I had about 20 things in there (a girl can dream right!) to items that I know I wanted at full price and will actually wear.

These two items are what I think I would definitely like to order.

Dress £247.50

This is the Mulberry Lilac Shimmery Dress that I blogged about the other night. It has gone straight to 50% discount at NAP so an even better deal than at Mulberry Direct

and this beautiful cotton Westwood Top

Vivienne Westwood Broderie Anglais Fitted Top £117 

I know I would wear this with Skirts AND jeans - so surely a wise purchase!
So what do YOU think? Should I have them!!!!!

A couple of other items caught my eye in the Sales

Helmut Lang Helios Dress is now Half Price at £172.50 

and love this little dress from Reiss (the online Sale started today)

Melia Dress Was £195 - Now £139 - Reiss

and my lucky purchase of the week was this one :)

 Westwood Bronze Popcorn Was £150 Now £105

This was on my hit list at MyWardrobe. It was only reduced by 30% from £150 making it £105 so I was thinking, hmm hold on to see if it is reduced again, as My Wardrobe almost always have second & third reductions - but then my loyalty points became available for the value of £50 so this gorgeous top became mine for £55, so I couldn't resist. I cannot wait to wear it with my Acne Best Zip Trousers

Decisions Decisions ......... !!

I like the teal coloured dress. I haven't really had time to trawl the NAP sale yet but can't really afford anything after the birthday celebrations this week!
