Michael Kors Spring Birthday Party Outfit Wishlist 2017

Guess whose having a birthday soon! Probably all of you will know someone who will be celebrating theirs but I was actually talking about me.  Of course having a birthday is a great excuse to go shopping online for a fabulous new outfit and with Love the Sales having a sale on Michael Kors items I simply couldn’t resist taking a look.  Michael Kors always has gorgeous sophisticated clothing, drool worthy bags, beautiful shoes and and more!!!!!!!  Of course the best time to get these items is in the sale as you can get away with squeezing in some extra items with the savings you make – I do love the logical way my mind works.

Dresses are a must i’m not so much of a trouser or skirt girl when going out and the style will vary depending on the location of the party.

The Michael Long Length Evening Dress is a great dress for meals out at nice restaurants.  Black will never go out of fashion and you wouldn’t feel out of place in this dress that’s for sure with its sophisticated and elegant style.  This was £211 and is now £148.

Blue dresses seem to be catching my attention at the moment and this stunner really is a fun, pretty dress for a range of activities from a meal out to drinks at a trendy bar.  The High Woods V Neck Dress is a great length for showing off those toned pins (might want to use some tanning cream first though).  The leopard print looks lovely against this pretty shade of blue and the dress flows well as you walk thanks to the chiffon.  This dress is fully lined and the v top flatters the bust.  This is going to be a popular dress I know and it was selling for £165 but is now only £59 so it really is a great bargain.

Back to black but this time something a little shorter than the first.  This beautiful lace dress is an all rounder in terms of events it really is a dress for all occasions and flatters the female form perfectly.  I love the lace sleeves which add to its sophisticated charm.  It was originally £258 but is now available for £155 and worth every penny due to its versatility.  You can dress it up to give a different look with different types of jewellery, bags, shoes etc.

Again blue but a slightly different shade.  This Ottoman dress is for the body confident and really does look wonderful.  With the perfect accessories you can look like you’ve just stepped off the catwalk.  This is a great colour for the warmer weather but if you are naturally pale like me don’t forget the tanning cream on those arms and legs to make it stand out that bit more.  You make a massive saving as this was £215 and is now £79.

Of course whatever you pick you need to make sure you have the right shoes.  I do read your comments and take into consideration your preferences too on my various posts and with these in mind have selected some great shoes that will not only go with each of these dresses they will also look simply gorgeous and have varied heel sizes.  I must admit I took forever trying to choose the shoes on the site as there are so many wonderful styles, they really did make it hard to whittle them down.  I had so many pages open for options that I thought I might crash my computer!!!!!

Whether you want a shoe the same colour as your outfit or one that will standout I have it all covered.  I’m super excited to share these beauties.

They are stunning aren’t they!

The selection above will not only look lovely with my chosen dresses they will go with so many more and getting a few and mixing and matching works well as you can create a different look each time.  The mix of kitten heels and higher heels should suit many tastes and for for that prefer flats I selected these.

They look super comfy and are perfect for anyone that doesn’t wear heels whether it is for medical reasons or because they haven’t mastered walking in them.

Now a great outfit of course needs completing and what other than a stylish handbag to finish the perfect ensemble.  Prefer a large or small bag?  You are spoilt for choice either way.

I thought these two styles would look great with the various outfits what do you think?  You can of course chose one that is more colourful or just go for a purse but the where will you put your phone, keys, makeup bag etc.

We could go on, watches, necklaces, earrings and bracelets will add that bit of sparkle and shine.

These all make wonderful gifts too if you know the style preference and size where applicable of the person you are buying for.

Love Fragrance Sales? Then you MUST Read This!

I have been thinking about Christmas shopping for a little while now and don’t hate me for saying this but I started about 2 months ago just getting a few items in here and there.  Anything that relieves the pressure of shopping for Christmas helps as I have so many people to buy for.  I was considering getting some fragrances in for some of my nearest and dearest and thought to pop over to the Love the Sales site as the last I mentioned them in a post I remembered they had a perfume sale and of course who doesn’t love a bargain.  It’s shocking really but you can get up to 75% off!!!!

I searched ‘Fragrance Gift Sets’ on the site and found a huge selection starting from 99p and covering ladies, men’s and children’s gifts.  Read on to find out how you can get even bigger discounts in November than those I have found on the site already.  These guys check the prices of a range of sites to provide us with the best bargains from those compared.

These gift sets are great for little ones and can be given as part of a birthday present or a stocking filler, here are some of my favourites from the site.


Clockwise from the top left;

The Smurf (Smurfette) 3 piece gift set junior – 64% off now £4.

Disney Princess Belle eau de toilette which is very popular every year and ALWAYS sells out (trust me I got caught out a few years back, disaster!) 50% off making it £2.50 (what a bargain, I might need to buy at least 5 or 6 of these!).

Smurf (Gutsy) gift set with 57% off making it £3.

Last but not least the Smurf (Smurfette) 3 piece gift set junior with 57% off – now £4.

For the ladies I thought these gift sets looked great.


There are so many gift sets to choose from it was hard to decide which I will buy but these are in the running.  I especially loved the designs on the gift boxes which were all very pretty.  From top left going clockwise we have;

Daisy Dream (perfume is 50ml) 16% off now £46.95

This fresh and floral fragrance will help the wearer hang on to the memory of summer that bit longer.

Prada Candy 15% £45.99.

This sounds lovely “The fragrance is all about Peony, with top notes of of joyful sorbet Limoncello, sparkling fresh. At the heart of the fragrance is a majestic bouquet of fresh peonies, with the base of musk, benzoin and caramel.”

Dahlia Noir L Eau de Toilette gift set 50% off now £25.

I was quite attracted to the sweet floral fragrance of this one.  The combination of rose and neroli work well together giving a gorgeous sweetness that is quite addictive.

Nina gift set 10% off now £36.95

I have one of the other Nina bottles which I simply must tell you all about but that will be another blog post.  These are very popular as they all smell lovely and have a sweet and feminine fragrance.  I love the addition of the Lime and Amalfi Lemon in this particular perfume to give it that freshness and the bottle is gorgeous.  I am know people collect these as they are beautifully designed.  It’s great to see that so much thought has gone into the product as a whole.

Ok so that’s us ladies sorted or at least for now, how about the fellas in our lives.  I have a fair few aside from the husband so I do tend to buy at least 5 or more male gift sets each Christmas and sometimes more over the year too.


From top left going clockwise we have;

Paco Rabanne I Million gift set (fragrance 100ml) 35% off now £37.95.

This is really popular with the guys I know and I am guaranteed to keep them happy if they get one a a gift at anytime of year.  It has a mix of fruity, floral and spicy notes.

Issey Mikyake (125ml) 11% off now £50.99.

Another popular fragrance with the guys I know.  I love this one the most out of those they wear with its gorgeous fresh fragrance.  I might need to wait a little longer as I always buy the gift sets of these which I am sure will be on their way shortly.

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Christmas gift set 13% off now £36.95.

This iconic scent is a classic and one that most men will have and it comes in a pretty bottle too!  I love that these guys are keen and already have their Christmas gift set out ready for us early birds to snap them up.

Calvin Klein Eau de Toilette mini gift set 52% off now £28.99.

This looks like a great selection and for this price it’s a bargain.  It comes with 4 popular fragrances so you can mix it up a bit as we all like variety.

The great thing is that not long from now we have two super sale days coming up!!!  Those who are into sale shopping will probably know what I am about to say but for those that may not have had their coffee yet or are experiencing that awful after food lull brace yourself you will be wide awake shortly.

I am of course referring to the Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales!

I have linked to each for anyone wanting to be alerted to the best deals on each of these days, I accept all good quality chocolates, perfumes and gift vouchers as forms of thanks lol.

During these two day I plan to make the most of the Perfume Sale and get loads of Christmas gifts in.

Whose with me?
