The black and red colour palette seem to have dominated laurabradshaw.co.uk recently, I feel I am fully embracing all things Winter.. which is weird because technically it’s still fairly warm in England, considering Christmas is so close! This velvet dress from She Likes is great for pretty much all AW13 trends, it’s a blank canvas as you can literally pair black with anything – not only this, it has a velvet top which is a gorgeous Winter texture and as you can see it looks amazing under a leather jacket. Pairing up mismatching textures it’s a favourite of mine at the moment.
I have also fallen in love with these MyOptique glasses by London Retro, they are just the most perfect shape and (as the name may suggest..) I love the retro shape of them, nicely subtle but still a little vintage feeling. Everytime I wear these I can guarantee at least one person will ask me where they’re from.. it’s a good sign! (although, not so much when being fitted for a bra.. yes, it was as awkward as it sounds)
Lastly, I decided to add a bit of a red colour pop with this headband (great for bad hair days!) and this beautiful poppy ring which is also for a really good cause. Jon Richard have paired up with The Royal British Legion and created this limited edition Poppy Ring to commemorate the annual Poppy Appeal and Remembrance Services. This retails at £12 with £3.60 of the proceeds donated to the charity. It can be brought online on the Jon Richard website, or in selected Debenhams stores!
