Win My Wardrobe Giveaway #2 ~ Daisy Street Boots & River Island Dress



I was supposed to start this giveaway yesterday and I didn't, I'm sorry guys, I'm a bad blogger! I actually ended up spending the evening/night/earlyhoursofthemorning catching up with some friends. You know how those unplanned night always end up being the best ones? Yeah, I had great fun :) I'm trying not to feel too bad about it today, since I am moving to Dublin in a week and a half, and I won't see my Galway buddies as much! :(

Now, on to the Giveaway! Seen as my last "Win My Wardrobe" giveaway went down so well, I have decided to have another one! For those of you who may not have seen my first "Win My Wardrobe" Giveaway, you should know that these items I am giving away are not new, unworn items ~ although they are barely-worn, and in perfect condition.

Prizes:
  • 1x Pair of DaisyStreet "Solange" Lace up Boot in Lavender Suede. Size UK 7
  • 1x River Island Galaxy Print Dress Size Small (UK 8-10)

 I bought these "Lita" lookalikes from Daisy Street about a year ago, and although I loveeee them, they are just that little bit too big for me. (my size was sold out) They were only worn very lightly outside for a lookbook shot for 5 minutes ~ they are in perfect condition! The River Island dress was bought last year and was also worn once, and It's also in perfect condition. It's a really beautiful dress in person ~ it has that great form-fitting & thick scuba-material, it's a great party dress! Basically, I'd rather send these lovely pieces on  to a good home than have them sit and gather dust in my wardrobe, hence the giveaway!

You can enter using the Rafflecopter widget below, and don't worry, its really easy to use, if you have any questions, feel free to drop me an email or a comment. The competition will close on Saturday June 1st, which is in just over a week's time.

Outfit Post ~ "Follow your heart, but take your brain with you"


 



"Gah, the Sun's in my eyes!!"





Jumper: Daisy Street // Shorts : H&M // Boots : River Island // Hat : Topshop

Hi Guys! It will have to be a quick outfit post today, Im having internet problems at home, its so frustrating! Its amazing how I've been taking speedy internet for granted, when its on the blink it makes me want to kill someone! GAAAAH!
((and breathe...))

Anyhow, this look is all about comfort. This snuggly little number from DaisyStreet boutique is a recent purchase of mine, and now holds the title of "Cosiest Piece in my Wardrobe" ~ a very esteemed title, in my opinion :) I teamed it with my H&M shorts, which I completely overwear, but I don't care because they go with absolutely everything! This look features another new purchase, these lovely burgundy boots from the River Island sale. I already have them in black, but I've been wearing the black ones so much that It seemed silly not to pick these up for the very tempting price of €40.
I better sign off now as I need to get myself sorted for a trip to Dublin tomorrow! Im heading to the River Island press day, where I'll be getting an exclusive look at their new season stock before it hits the shelves (yipee!) and ill hopefully get to hang out with some of my lovely blogger buddiez there, so I'm pretty excited! Check out my twitter and instagram (both are @WildChildCiara) for updates throughout the day.

Peace, 
WildChild,

Ps: You can Hype this look on Lookbook if you like using the button above :)

Recent Purchases: Topshop, Daisy Street and Motel Rocks!



Hey guys, just a super quick post to show you guys some of lovely bits I picked up online recently. I always have a bit of a browse in the online sales after Christmas, although quite a few of these bits I picked up actually aren't on sale!
Anyways, here goes!



These fabulous burgundy Disco Pants are from Daisy Street, and are a fraction of the price American Apparel charge for their versions.

I also picked up this plain roll-sleeve shirt from Topshop after drooling over it on TarMar's Youtube Channel!

It feels like I'm ALWAYS looking for the perfect Fedora hat ~ I've tried so many and none seemed to be just right ~ but this number from Topshop looks like it just might be the one!

and finally, a nice snuggly number to cosy up in, also from Daisy Street!

 also, this peplum off-shoulder top from Motel Rocks really caught my eye, I can see myself wearing it in lots of different ways, I cant wait for it to arrive! (Remember you can use the code "WildChildCiara" at the checkout to take 20% off any full-priced Motel Rocks items!)



So, what do you think of these purchases? Is there anything here you would buy yourself?
I better go now, I have to finish packing my bag for Edinburgh, I'll be spending New Years celebrating with some friends over there, I can't friggin wait, yippee!!

Peace, 
WildChild,

Outfit Post: A Galaxy in a Dress!



 



  


Sequin Gabby Dress : Motel Rocks // Bowler Hat : Folkster.com // Tardy Boots : Jeffrey Campbell

This is the dress I have been dyyyying to show you guys, I just didnt have the chance to photograph it until now. The second I spotted it on the Motel Rocks facebook page I just knew I had to have it! 

I was able to use my own Discount Code (no shame!) so it was 20% cheaper, but even if I had to pay full price I would have bought it anyways. This is one of those dresses that I know I will keep for years to come, and I think every girl needs at least ONE ridiculously sparkly dress in their wardrobe. 

 The iridescence-quality of the sequins are fantastic, and when the light catches it you can see green, blue and turquoise. I think the last photo by the tree really shows just how sparkly it is when the light hits it. In case anyone's wondering, I bought It in a size small and it fits great, not too tight, but certainly not loose either. 

Since I am quite tall, its a little on the short side on me, so I would be reluctant to wear it without tights, but that doesn't bother me in the slightest. I gotta admit, this bad boy a strong contender for my favourite dress ever, and that's really saying something!

 Im sure most of you say from my blog post earlier today (click here to read)  that my usual 20% Discount that I can offer readers for Motel Rocks has been increased to a massive 30%, up until Halloween! 

So if you fancy bagging yourself this beauty of a dress, follow this link here and use the code "WILDCHILDCIARA" at the checkout! I would be quick about it though, this dress will no doubt sell out soon!

Peace,

Real versus Steal: Charlotte Olympia-esque Slippers from Daisy Street!






  
 Slipper Pumps: DaisyStreet.co.uk

Hey guys! I don't have a full outfit post for you all today, but I just couldn't wait to show you these amazing new pumps I got from Daisy Street. They are exactly like the Charlotte Olympia Cobweb-style flats, which I think are extremely cute, (not so cute price-tag though!) so I was delighted when I found them on Daisy Street for a snip of the price! I don't know if you can see from the photos but they are a beautiful velvet finish, which I really like in slipper-style pumps! They are also really comfortable, which is always a plus for me ~ sometimes it's nice to take a break from heels :) Plus they're absolutely PERFECT for Halloween, which is just around the corner now! I wonder if I can work them into my costume somehow...... Hmm!!
I have picked up quite a few other really nice pieces from Daisy Street recently which I cant wait to show you all, I only discovered them not to long ago, and they are absolutely amazing! They stock some really incredible pieces, at great prices. Be sure to check them out here, you wont be disappointed! 

Peace,
