Summer Sunnies: The Top 8.

I was sitting and thinking of accessories (as you do), and I realized there was a certain accessory that I chose to ignore lately. Sunglasses always got over looked for rings, necklaces and bracelets, possibly because other than 2 Ray-Bans and a pair of Linda Farrows, I've managed to single handedly misplace every pair of sunnies that I've ever owned. But hey, it's summer, I live in the Middle East so it's almost impossible to go out without them during the day, so I inevitably ended up spending some time clicking through pictures of this most useful of accessories.. Here's my top 8!

New In - Shoes..

I'm a sucker for rose gold, I'm a sucker for d'Orsay-ed shoes, and I don't think I even have to tell you guys how big of an Alexander Wang fan-girl I am, do I?

Put Your Fringed Foot Forward..

The flu. I have it, I hate it. What's more annoying than sneezing 80 times a day is probably the boredom that comes with being so tired that all you can do is lie in bed. Being sick and being confined to my bed also results in some late night online shopping.. Waiting on those packages from ASOS and The Outnet!

This is my attempt at being useful (and giving my credit card a break). Here's an outfit post that I shot in April, wearing the coolest Mulberry boots ever! Fringey orange goodness makes walking fun, although they aren't the comfiest.

Glare Gypsy turns 1, & a Give-Away!

 (dress- Reiss, white tee- Living Doll, sandals- Robert Clergerie, ring- YSL, crown- Cult Gaia)

A year ago today I sat down and typed my first post, right before I moved to London for 6 amazing months. A year later so much has changed, but I'm sitting in the same spot (curled up in the middle of the bed with my blanket draped around my shoulders), still typing.

What better way to celebrate than to twirl around the garden in a floral denim dress and cornflower blue crown? (My new favourite summer accessory!)

As a thank you to everyone who has read and supported Glare Gypsy in it's first year, I wanted to start Year II by giving one reader this LeSportsac stripey beach tote, just in time for any beach days and get-aways!

All you have to do to enter is tweet about the give-away, then copy/paste your tweet into the 'Comments' section of this post so I'll be sure to see it, along with your email. A winner will be picked at random and announced once the contest closes on Sunday the 17th of June!

P.S. This give-away is open internationally.

The Highs and Lows: Cap Toe Pumps

I've been staring at these YSL pumps for months now, trying to justify buying another pair of shoes.. I seem to be on a shoe spree. Word of advice, don't try on shoes when you're broke. Especially if they're Celine.. And perfect.. Still dying over that pair ugh! Anyway back to this amazing pair. After months of drooling over these YSLs, I chanced upon their look-a-likes on ASOS. I personally love the duller, more muted gold on the YSL cap toe.. What do you guys think?

Something In The Way..

(top- Nasty Gal, skirt- Marni x H&M, wedges- Surface To Air, bag- Alexander Wang)

More forgotten photographs in the archives, wearing that Marni x H&M skirt. I didn't realize this till I wore it, but the prints and colours on the skirt give me an extremely Indian Sari vibe.. I mean, look at that close up! My Alexander Wang Diego seems to be taking over this blog, but I can't really help it. Love the edge it lends to the prettiest outfits (and I could never resist a stud, especially if it was in rose gold)!
