High street lust #56.


So the Mulberry 'Alexa' has made satchel bags very trendy. I'm still devastated I turned down the limited 'summer tweed' version I saw. Until Mulberry releases another colour I'm in love with, I may settle for River Island's grey suede mock croc satchel bag (£69.99). Not that I need another handbag...

The black velvet drape shorts (£26.99) give off a Henry VIII feel, n'est-ce pas? With that in mind I tried to create a modern-Tudor look and the cream embellished zip front cardigan (£59.99) with all its intricacies looks fit for a lady. Hair should be a messy bouffant with a tiara, but a black feather alice headband (£12.99) with sweet pink flower fabric stud earrings (£6.99) peeking out will do. For the contemporary touches, add a pair of sexy mock suspender tights (£7.99) and some black strappy cage wedge sandals (£49.99). Add a fierce black lioness gold look ring (£12.99) and a black and gold encrusted ring (£12.99) and off with your head.

Love the color of that satchel bag! Everything that looks like there here costs loads of cash...I'm so poor. :(
