Jolie fille, jolie vêtements, Jolie Moi!

Unfortunately, that's the extent of my French.

First off, pretty amazing news. I won 'best style and fashion advice' runner up in the New Look Holiday Hop competition on the wonderful Michelle Chai's blog Daisybutter! This means I will be getting a £30 New Look voucher through the post sometime soon and I'll be keen to make you all a post to show you what I spent it on. The other runners up entries were fab and the winners entry? WOW! Look. I'm pretty chuffed because I never seem to win anything (goes right back to my childhood and entering magazine competitions.)

Anyway, back to the sole purpose of today's post.
My list of shops is just getting longer and longer and I've another to pop onto the somewhat curling list: Jolie Moi!
They sound like my style personified, taking the latest trends but offering a vintage and wearable twist at payday friendly prices. It's only too well known that some lovely vintage-esque clothes make a hole in your lovely new purse.

Right away I'm seeing catwalk inspired trends in the garments above; oversized, geometric, monochrome, crochet, lace, slouchy, galaxy, gothic, grungy, motif, chiffon and colour block. 
Paired with ankle socks, block heels/sandals, creepers or brogues with some lovely red or pink lips and maybe even a bunny bow, you have the perfect on-trend-with-a-vintage-twist look! 
I'm irrevocably in love with numbers 1, 3 and 4. Many people know that I am animal mad and will happily stop traffic to let a bunny cross the road (or in a funny case have a hare run alongside me at 40mph), so the wildlife dress is perfect for me. The beautiful motif caught my eye and I love the gothic mesh skirt that goes with it. The skull dress is a lovely autumnal colour and what's brilliant is they have different facial skeletal? expressions. Finally, the polka dots. I love a good sequence of spots and a bodycon style to show off your curves, and the crochet lace frill trim makes it a winner for me.

I urge you to check them out.
