Playing #SecretStylist with House of Fraser

As you’ll know if you read this post (you know, the one where I vowed to blog err’y damn day… oh…), I’m trying to get back into the blogging swing of things in a big way. So that’s why I went to the Sonos music event last Saturday and why, when I was asked if I wanted to play a spot of Secret Santa with House of Fraser, I said HELLZ YEA BOI! (Except I didn’t say it quite like that because I’m a woman in her mid-thirties and that would make me sound like a massive dick.)

ANYWAY. Where were we? Ahh, yes – #SecretStylist with House of Fraser.

So we were basically assigned a blogger and given a budget of £30 to shop the jewellery section on

I was tasked with buying Jade from The Style Rawr a gift and I’m not gonna lie, the first thing I did was filter the jewellery section by leopard print, because I knew anything animal would surely be a winner. However, I also slightly did that thing of sort of shopping for myself, and when I saw a babin’ Biba bangle within my search I snapped it up straight away!

Being a bit of a bohemian lover, I was pretty taken with the dreamy little piece I’d found from one of my favourite iconic British brands from the 60s/70s, and kept my fingers crossed that whoever was shopping for me might also stumble across the Biba jewellery section…

Flash forward a few days and my little HoF package arrived in the post. I LOLed quite a lot when I opened it to reveal… JUST A BLOODY BIBA CUFF OF MY VERY OWN! {See the Biba Lara cuff, above} Not only did I do a virtual hi-five to my #SecretStylist but congratulated myself on being oh-so psychic as my mystical astrological powers (you know I do weekly horoscopes for Glamour, right?) are CLEARLY on fire.

I’ve since found out that my style sleuthin’ sassy Santa was the lovely Ellis from Ellis Tuesday – so snaps to her for getting my vintage vibes spot on. No mean feat when you haven’t met someone IRL – but praise be to Instagram and #ootd posts, yeah?

In a beautiful iridescent jade green pony skin, my dreamy trinket can be dressed up or down, so I took it for a spin by day, in a 60s beatnik style, paying homage to Biba’s swingin’ London roots:

I had the perfect dress to pair my bit of Biba bling with for a night-time look: this lurex vintage maxi which I picked up on one of my charity shop trawls for a couple of quid, in complimentary shades of shimmering green:

Definitely planning on wearing this heavenly little combo over party season, so shout out to my Secret Santa Ellis for getting my style spot on *thumbs up emoji*
