valentine's wishlist & lulu guinness love ♥

Here is a little Valentine's Day outfit wish list for IFB Project #82.

This dress is so sweet, I've got one quite similar with a collar already, but I've worn it to death so I think this tea dress would be a lovely replacement! Also from Topshop is this adorable 1950s inspired underwear set, which includes a bralet and matching high waisted knickers in a soft pink. To continue the spotty theme I paired this with some sheer tights from Gerbe... there are similar pair of hold-ups available too.

For accessories I chose this add this floral crown from Dolly Bow Bow and a very Valentine's inspired arrow bracelet from Uncovet (I discovered them the other day and they have some lovely understated jewellery, check them out).

The statement piece in this outfit is definitely the dusky pink Lulu Guinness clutch. Her lips clutches are iconic and have a huge celebrity following from Dita Von Teese to Paloma Faith. When designing her famous bags Lulu was inspired by Pop Art and Surrealism and this new perspex take is the freshest incarnation of a classic accessory. I think its futuristic style contrasts but compliments this vintage-y outfit well. You can get the lips clutch in loads of styles but if you don't fancy being so bold you could just go for a Lulu Guinness lips keyring (below left) from Jules B for a nod towards the trend. Another way to wear the style subtly is with this bag in powder pink which incorporates the characteristic lips motif into its quilting. Alternatively you could go more outrageous; this rose gold lips clutch is my favourite from the whole collection and fits perfectly with this spring's metallic trend. Finally this shocking pink envelope clutch from Jules B is a little more practical but still has the playful design elements Lulu is famous for.
