OOTD & Bullring Bloggers Event featuring Urban Decay & Tatty Devine July 2014

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to the Bullring Bloggers event in Birmingham.

This is what I wore...
Leopard Print Headscarf: Fred Perry
Dinosaur Necklace: Tatty Devine
Jumpsuit: Clothing at Tesco
Peep Toe Pumps: H&M
There were loads of brands at the event that we had the opportunity to have a chat with and some lovely treats for us to nibble on.

We got talking to the lovely Jack from Urban Decay and he offered to show me how to do a smokey eye using the Naked Palette (which, I am now realising what all the hype is about!)

I'm always a bit too "safe" when it comes to my make up and the most daring I get is a bright lipstick. I worry that I'll make a mess of my eye make up!
Jacks top tip: BLEND BLEND BLEND!

Go follow him on Instagram to see some more of his handiwork. I have total brow envy! 
I was over the moon with my eye make up. I'll definitely be giving it a go myself at some point.
Best. Present. Ever. 

I was given this absolutely awesome necklace made by Tatty Devine. I am in love with it! 

I had a fab time. It was great to catch up with some familiar faces that I'd not seen in a while including Sunny, Emma & Sarah.

Thank you again to Emma and the Bullring for a lovely event

OOTD featuring House of Fraser

I start my new job on Monday and have suddenly realised that my "work" wardrobe is a little lacking.

I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to update it but at the same time wanted to find items that I would be happy wearing out of work too. 

I had a look in the usual places I tend to go but was pleasantly surprised to find what a wide selection of clothing that House of Fraser offers.
I think my perception was that they tend to offer high end brands which is great for special occasions but on closer inspection they offer a wide range of more affordable items too. 

I found this Yumi dress in their sale for around £20. It's very me but can be dressed up or down. Perfect for the office or going out after work!
I love the lace detailing on the dress too!

Have you bought clothing from House of Fraser before? Any bargains?

OOTD featuring Kate Spade... ♤

A little bit of a different OOTD from me. Clare does smart. Yep. It's possible. 

I bought this dress in Ted Baker in the sale when I was on the hunt for a black dress with 3/4 sleeves. 

I was on the verge of giving up (apparently Summer isn't the time to be looking for black dresses. With long sleeves...) but found this and it was exactly what I was after!

Whilst trying to look smart it seemed like a good idea to update my phone cover too. 

Anyone who knows me has probably seen my array of phone covers ranging from a 3D Hello Kitty through to my most recent BMO from Adventure Time case...
 Headscarf: Fred Perry
Glasses: Ray Ban
Suit Dress: Ted Baker
Heels: Bertie
 iPhone 5C Case: Kate Spade

I thought that the case matches my Ray Ban glasses pretty well! It's a subtle print, but still fun looking. 
 I love how you can still see the brightness of the phone through the case rather than covering it up!
I wasn't really too familiar with the brand up until now but have spotted some amazing handbags by Kate Spade which I am now lusting over!

What phone case do you have?
