What Milly Wore: OnePiece - Jump In!

Hi Guys,
I've been lucky enough to be sent a OnePiece to review,
and since I received it..... I basically haven't taken it off!

Now I bet there are a few of us out there that are fans of 
the Primarni onesies, but they pale in comparison to a OnePiece.
These are such good quality,
It's pretty much the most awesome thing I own!


It's just so so comfy!
I've been recovering from having my wisdom tooth out for a week
and I've just lived in this,
it's great for lounging around the house,
and even better for wearing to bed on cold nights!

It zips all the way up to the tip of the hood
(be warned  friends find it amusing to zip you in!)

They do loads of different versions,
unisex ones, patterned ones etc
This particular style is their new Slim- Vera Velour,
which I think is a great twist on those velour tracksuits you see everyone in.

As for size I'm a 14, 5ft2
and in the Slim style I'm a medium,
In the unisex ones they are made pretty baggy
so I'd only need a Small

 Also, its so snuggly and warm
I'm one of those people that is always cold,
so this is a complete godsend!
I cant say I'll be wearing it out the house
(actually ask me again once its's freezing, I just might)

Price wise, at £150 it's an investment,
it's not cheap but you can really feel the quality
and if you can afford it I reckon it would be a life saver in winter!
And it would be great as a christmas present 
if you can convince a loved one to buy it for you!

(paha, had to include this picture , I'm such a goof!)

Please let me know what you think guys,
would you Jump In to a OnePiece ??

Hope you enjoyed my review :)


P.S Also, I've dyed my hair! It wont be this colour for long, this is only stage 1!

200th post! What Milly Wore: Velvet Undergound

Hi guys,
Welcome to my 200th post! WOOT
It's great to reach another landmark,
I didn't really celebrate my last blog birthday
So I'll so a little happy dance about this instead!

Anyway, here is what I wore today :)

Bowler Hat: Accessorize sale around £9.00 (last winter)

I havnt worn this hat much,
but I do really like it,
especially now my hair is a bit longer, 
it looks much better with hair peeking out of the front!

Pirate Gun Necklace: Disney Couture (pirates of the Caribbean collection)

This is a great small necklace for everyday wear
I cant get enough of disney couture.
Cant remember how much it was but I'm pretty sure it was in the sale!

Velvet & Lace Dress: Urban Oufitters £22  reduced from £45 (January sale)

I'd forgotten about this dress,
when it put it on this morning it still had it's tags on.
It's greating finding brand new things you already own when you don't have any money!
It was great for this indecisive weather as it is quite warm
Black Leggings: Primark £3

As always the leggings are from primark :)

Hope you guys have a great weekend,
and I'll see you all again next week!

Sarenza: Pure British Style!

The ever so generous online shoe retailers Sarenza
are holding a competition from bloggers to win £800 worth of shoes!
If you want to enter yourself, take a look here 
So I'd thought I'd give it a go, here's my entry!

The theme was 'Great British Style'
and you had to choose £800 worth of shoes from their website to review
that reflect the theme!

My first pick is

These trainers are right up my street!
Liberty  was started in London in 1885
you cant get more British than that!
 Their classic prints teamed up with this modern Nike design
really work well, collaborations at their best!
I'd wear these a-la Lily Allen, with a floral girly dress
clashing the prints!

Second I picked

I love this classic T-bar style,
they remind me of old fashioned school shoes,
the kind that in the 20's -50's and even later girls and boys would wear in summer!
I'm sure I've got a picture somewhere of my dad as a boy wearing something similar.
So very very cute and retro,
but with the added twist of gold studs!
I'd love to spot these with woolly grey tights and 
some leather shorts, yes please!


How can you talk about British style without mentioning the inimitable Vivienne Westwood
 From her first real catwalk show in 1982 to present day 
she is top of the pile when it comes to British designers
I love her collections with Melissa,
it makes her fabulous designs so much more accessible!
This cameo design is no exception.
I'd pair them with some black opaque tights and a cute velvet dress
a little bit Alice in Wonderlend with an edge.


When I think of British shoe companys the first that Springs to mind is Clarks,
from school shoes from when we were little, 
to the amazing fashion led designs they are coming up with now.
These Boots have a victorian / granny boot feel 
(lace -up boots coming higher up the leg so ladies could 
keep their ankles under wraps away from men!)
Tied in with the Brogue detailing they couldn't be any more British of they tried!
I'd put them with a  pleated midi skirt, and a matching
brown leather bag.

In Fifth

Originally worn by Teddy boys in the 1950's
Creepers (or Brother creepers as they are sometimes known)
were then commandeered by the punks of the 70's
and now are a great symbol of British Alternative fashion.
These Leopard print creeper boots
by Underground England are as British as British could be!
These have got to be worn with Black skinnies
and perhaps a leopard print shirt, and a studded leather jacket.

Here in 6th

Leather Loafers always remind me of that 'Sloane Ranger' look
very 1980's, think Princess Diana, Prep Schools and Polo!
It's now become a British classic, great for this seasons 'Heritage' look
will never go out of fashion, and last you a lifetime!
I;d team these with some blue skinny jeans, and blue and white striped  shirt
 and a pashmina scarf.
Next Up

I know these are probably a bit too literal
but I could resist, they are so patriotic!
The Great British actress Audrey Hepburn is famous for always wearing ballet shoes,
and I have to agree with the idea,  I cant walk in heels at all!
I love the colour scheme and the richness of the fabric,
add in the crown charm and it's all very regal.
As these are such a statement I'd wear these with cropped or rolled up jeans and a plain white t-shirt,
with a string of pearls and a royal blue cardigan.

Last but not least

Made as a type of riding boot 
this style of boot was thought up by Queen Victoria's personal shoe designer.
It was a classic quintessential British shoe! 
In the 1960's the style re-emerged and was adopted by the Mods and
 dubbed a Chelsea boot after the place.
Often seen on the likes of the Beatles and the Kinks,
they Chelsea boot has never gone out of fashion since.
I'd love a pair, and would rock them with drainpipe jeans and a blazer
channelling their androgynous vibe!

And that's it,
this lovely lot come to a total of £795.65 phew!
I hope you enjoyed reading my post,
I tried to make it informative as well as fashion based,

Wish me luck :)
