Worth A Lust - H&M Neon Accessories

Heels & Necklace - H&M

If you have stopped by either of our individual blogs lately you might have noticed we share a mutal love for the brighter things in life. 
The past month has been a washout here in Newcastle but H&M have provided us with some beautiful flashes of neon to keep us feeling summery - Phew! 
These neon heels are sheer perfection, we both managed to snap up a pair before the rush and at £24.99 they are a steal! As for the necklace....we will be wearing this with everything!

One sure thing to brighten up your day when it's raining cats and dogs? Why, your best friend of course!
Sporting the kind of brights that would awaken the dead, we braved the monsoon and found ourselves a nice little sheltered spot whilst en route to our local coffee shop/ hang out for chats of the fashion based variety and to consume copious amounts of caffeine.
Two things were discussed;

1. The way in which an item of clothing you first thought to be semi-acceptable, suddenly becomes your most favourite item. Ever. Fickle fashion is a funny thing!

2. The excitement of Raf Simon's recent move to Dior and the possibilities it holds!

 Also, 'staring etiquette'.
We don't know about you guys, but whenever we pull up a pew to take some snaps we suddenly acquire three or four people, out of no where, standing and staring like we're some kind of freak show?! Now we would never just gawp, open mouthed at someone taking a picture, it's very rude and such a foreign concept to us that every time it happened we couldn't help but burst out laughing!
Answer: Occupational hazard.

Worth A Lust - Ginta Lapina Puerto Rican Vogue April 2012

Puerto Rican Vogue: Ginta Lapina

This WAL post is all kinds of perfect.
The Givenchy steel- capped heels, the Chanel tweeds and the Peplum polka dot/ snakeskin combo.
It's like some kind of Sugar spun, candy coloured dream that we do not want to wake up from!

Trendy twins...

The Lovely Ana Farais of Trendy Twins blog did an absolutely beautiful feature on us where she created a montage that showcased a few of our outfits from the archives of our own respective blogs, which showed (more than we even realised) how in-tune we really are!
You can read the feature here, it is in Portuguese but you can translate it very easily with the modern-day marvel that is the internet.

The weather here has been absolutely insane these past few days. Last week we were donning our brightest hues in 23 degree climates and yesterday, snow?!
So today, in a bid to be prepared (or as prepared as one can be) we both, unknowingly to one another, went for the old, polo neck under the T-shirt, option.
Showcased by the Celine AW11 collection, this is a look we are both familiar with. Having grown up in the North East, we were subjected to layers upon layers as children to prevent us from 'catching our death'...suppose old habits die hard.
Speaking of death, we were under similar threat today when we were chased off the industrial estate we perched ourselves on for these snaps... lesson learnt? Never assume the unassuming are friendly. (Oh, and watch out for sandwich vans... they don't stop!)
