Tobi Wishlist

I'd been looking for an online store to buy summery/holiday clothes for when I go away at Easter, when I came across "Tobi", on Facebook, and the clothes are absolutely gorgeous. In fact, I have spent the last hour going through the entire website (so that I don't miss anything!) and have created a wishlist that doesn't seem to end. I am trying to whittle it down to a reasonable amount, so that I don't blow my student loan all in one go, but I just want it all! Whilst the clothes look to be of a really good quality, they are also very, very, reasonably priced, AND you get 50% off your first order. What more could you want? 

Here are some of the items that I am loving:

Paris Haute Couture SS14 Favourites - Chanel

Everyone that knows me will be aware of my obsession with Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld. However, the Chanel Haute Couture collection for SS14 that hit the runway at Paris Fashion Week, has been the talk of the fashion world ever since. The collection itself mixed new, modern elements of "sports luxe", with details that are classic to Chanel's past designs, in the most elegant silver and pastel tones. Some of the model's sported accessories such as crystal embellished knee pads and bumbags, in colours to perfectly compliment the clothing, and every single model wore a pair of trainers, which had been embroidered, laser cut to imitate lace, and jewelled. However, designs famous to Chanel such as the classic white collar, French tweed, and that Chanel suit, were all integral components of this collection. The mixture of column dresses, crop tops with built-in structuring to create ladylike curves and matching A-line skirt, embellished tunics with matching skinny trousers, and bias cut gowns, together made a truly spectacular offering. I LOVE. 

The makeup adorned by the models perfectly complimented the silvers that dominated the collection. The eyes were the focus of the look, with a bold feline-esque liner on the lid and a smattering of irridescent crystals below the eye. Beautiful!
