Disney Vans Collection

If you are a Disney fan like me, you will love this new collection by Vans! With 8 different shoes designs, you will defiantly find something you like and you can even get matching backpacks, hats, socks and tops. As soon as I heard about this collection, I knew a wish list post was in order and I am crushing on the Classic slip-ons featuring Minnie Mouse - so cute!
The collection can be bought from Vans website and also on ASOS, Schuh and Littlewoods.

Father's Day Wrap.Me

With it being Father's Day, a unique and bespoke present is always nice to get and as part of my Dad's gift, I have got it wrapped in the amazing paper*. I have previously done a post on this amazing wrapping paper here but this time I had an event in which I could actually use it! As it was only a sheet of paper this time, I didn't get the huge box but it did come in a large envelope with their logo on. I think this packaging is so professional looking and says what it needs to without it being too much.

Once again the paper is super good quality and every image is clear and sharp. It is a bit of a joke in my house that the cat (Tinka) is my Dad's 'best-friend' so what better to put on wrapping paper for Father's Day than Tinka himself?! I used 6/7 images of him along with an image that says 'Happy Father's Day' as I though this would make it completely obvious what the paper was for. The delivery was so quick too! I was told 3-4 days and it come within 2!

As before, I would completely recommend if you want to make a gift extra special and bespoke as you can have any images you wish printed onto the paper.

Kendall & Kylie for Topshop

The Kardashian/Jenner family can now to add another level to their increasing brand with the launch of the Kendall & Kylie collection for Topshop. The high-street giant is the sole stockists of the collection, rather than the collaboration they normally reserve for up and coming fashion designers.

The 15 piece line makes up the ultimate summer wardrobe which use both of the girls different styles meaning there is something for everyone. For Kylie there is a more edgier look with sports luxe slogan tees and jersey sweats. With Kendall, it is more LA-cool inspired with denim cut offs and Hawaiian prints. There is also a Jenner fave - the duster coat which is lightweight and perfect for the unpredictable British summer weather. The collection is priced from £28 - £80 and with something for everyone. I can't wait to get my hands on a few pieces, especially the 'When in doubt, vacation' sweater.

Victoria's Secret Panty Party

Victoria's Secret is probably the ultimate destination for all things lingerie and loungewear, but of course it does a bit more of a price tag than some other places. However, they do occasionally have some amazing offers such as their 'Panty Party'. Basically, this is an offer for 7 pairs of cotton panties for £20 meaning each pair is less than £3 - don't think you will find a better offer than this anywhere! Also, if you are a regular reader of F.B.L Savvy, you will know I am a huge lingerie lover so there was no way I could walk past my local VS store and not buy them!

This is the first time I have bought from Victoria's Secret and with it being American, I was unsure about the sizes but they have so many lovely sales assistants that it wasn't a problem and was recommended to get XS, as I was told the sizes can sometimes be on the larger size for the cotton panties.


I got 3 pairs of 'Cheeky', 3 pairs of 'Low-rise Hiphugger' and 1 pair of the 'Cheekini'. I love all 3 of the styles and they are also all so comfy to wear. I did get them mainly in neutral colours as I would wear them more and also they would match will the majority of the bras I already own - love a good matching set. I did get a couple of brighter colours as they were too pretty to ignore! The material used throughout is super soft and comfortable, so I feel you are defiantly paying for quality. They also retain their shape and colour after multiple washes. I didn't notice until I got home - but one pair of the 'Cheeky' is super cheeky with a little peek-hole on the back waistband with a little bow - it is so cute and adds that little bit of sexiness - it is Victoria's Secret after all! On some of the panties, there is a small logo which is VS and a little heart - so cute! Their bags are oh-so-cute and give a luxurious feel with the ribbon handles and the tissue paper wrapping.

I would defiantly buy from Victoria's Secret again even though it is a little more pricy than some other lingerie stores but I feel you are getting the quality you pay for. Make sure you sign up to their newsletter to be in the know of their deals here in the UK .
Have you bought anything from VS? What do you think?

Clo Clo London

Over the years I have bought so many necklaces, most of them being in the fine jewellery department, so I was so excited to style a piece from Clo Clo London's collection. They are a London based online jewellery boutique where every piece is hand-picked, giving a guarantee of quality and linking in with current fashion trends.

The piece I got was the 'Elizabeth'*. For someone who has never worn statement jewellery before, I absolutely love this necklace! The gold chains are quite chunky and on other pieces it would look quite harsh, but with the faux peals, it adds a girly edge. I also love the small diamontes in the rings between each pearl to add to the girlyness and gives it a bit of sparkle! (My inner magpie!)  

It is quite a heavy piece of jewellery when you hold it, but when it's on you don't really feel it. Yes, it is more heavy than a normally necklace but not unbearable at all! As this is quite a large and statement piece, I would wear it with a simple outfit and make-up, so that it really catches the eye but also doesn't make your outfit too 'busy'.

Clo Clo London delivery is super fast and your items come wrapped in tissue paper baring the company name. I thought this was super cute and defiantly made me want to order something else purely for the wrapping! They have such a huge collection on their website, so even if you don't like the big statement pieces they have some that are more finer such as the 'Grace Kelly'. (Next on my shopping list!) Also, how cute is their website?!

Style Spotter - Menswear Addition

I thought I would try and do something a little different and do a celeb style spotter post from the past week. It is also on menswear - something I have never featured on my blog before, so here goes!

I love Niall Horan's double denim look - doing it perfectly by contrasting the shades of denim meaning its not too much and is also bang on trend right now! With the white tee and black boots it is the perfect casual look.

Jim Chapman at the Spy Premier. I loved his suit - classic and stylish, the perfect look for a red carpet event. The jacket colour is something slightly different from the usual black being a brown colour.

Well Sam Smith certainly knows how to rock an all black ensemble! I love his shoes - especially since the silver which breaks up all the black look.
Brooklyn Beckham has certainly got his Dad's style genes as shown by this cool, casual look with the denim jacket (everyone is wearing one) and dark jeans along side white shoes. A simple yet stylish look.
Is there anyone else who you think knows their style and I should feature in another one of these posts?
