Choices.

A few days ago I came across these wonderful bow hair clips (with a net) from Johnny Loves Rosie at Asos. I want one so badly, but the Asos shipping rates are outrageous, so I don't think I will. Hopefully someone will get to wear these well!



Oh, and I've been looking for a black and white stripe top for ages, and I think I've finally found two good candidates at H&M.

This one is nice as it's quite stretchy, and it has some cute buttons on one of the shoulders. However, the quality seems poorer than the other one.

DSC03451I like this one since it seems like the quality is quite good, and it has buttons on the sleeves. I'm not sure how I feel about the wide black stripe at the sleeves and neck... but I think I like it. I just don't know if this one would work as well underneath dresses as the other one. Nevertheless, this is the one I think I'm slightly leaning towards. Which one do you prefer?

I really like that striped top! And those hair clips are so lovely. I might have to pick one up myself! So glad that asos delivers internationally

Nice skirt! I prefer the second t-shirt :)
Btw, about that hair clip, I think you can DIY, with a bow and a clip xD I think in that kind os shops (don't know the name in English, sorry :S) you can buy buttons and that kind of things, you can found a bow like that, and also the clip.
Byee

I love those hair bows!

I have to agree I like the second top too, the fact that it's better quality helped my decision.

:o)

Lavender said...

I love those bow clips. They look like they would be quite easy to make too. I might have to try one.

Britney said...

I think I like the second one better!

I totally love the second one. The stripes make it much more striking.

Amber said...

I actually really like the second one, I think the black bands add a little something different to the shirt and isn't it horrible when you want to buy something and the shipping ends up being outrageous? I have walked away from many an item because I couldn't justify the shipping cost.

I like the wide stripes better it ties in with the skirt. and totally love those head pieces. if i was DIY, that would be top priority.

both versions are amazing so hard to choose... But I think that option number two. And please tell me where you bought this fabulous skirt?

Very nice!
I like the second one best...

muchlove said...

I'm voting for the second one too. I like the wide black stripes. It makes it more interesting without being too complicated.

I'm loving those hair clips too! I agree with Lavender, they look like they're easy to make.

Monika: The skirt is from H&M - bought in the summer.

Ah, I wish I was more of a DYI person too, and I'd try making the bow. I suppose I could give it a try anyway... though I wonder where I could get a net like that since I really like that detail!

Chintz said...

i have the top one :) i don't find it fits as well as some other stripy tops i have. i vote the 2nd one.

i've just started reading you, and your style is soooo similar to mine, it's scary! i love it :) x

Vie said...

Å - den hårpynten var kjempefin.

Ang. genserne, så synes jeg du kledde begge godt - men jeg trooor jeg likte den siste best. Den satt veldig fint på deg.
Og du har et veldig flott ansikt!

Margeaux said...

I like the second one...it's more bold. And those hairbows are delicious! I'm sorry you couldn't get any :(

sandramarie said...

riennahera said...

I like both, but I would buy the first one. It's much more functional.

What a cute place! I love those hair clips! I don't think I could personally pull it off but they are very pretty. I love the second top, the black band actually makes it look more expensive. And I'm a sucker for embellishments/buttons/lace! I'm sure you probably get this all the time, but you look like Resse Witherspoon!

Regine said...

søt topp du hadde.i love stripes.

har du sett på accessorize?der har dei ein del fin hårpynt.. eg kjøpte en slags hårbøyle med fjær i som var kjempestilig. og dei hadde sånne sløyfer med slør på der også husker eg.. dyrt å bestille fra asos ja.

miss large said...

nice outfit. I love bows. This black is pretty.

♥ fashion chalet said...

What a great idea, tucking your striped tee into your skirt. It looks lovely on you, Ariella. :)

Thanks for taking the time to check out my article-interview and for commenting on it as well. :) So glad you liked it.

AV forums does get posts but it seems a little slower than usual lately.. :( maybe due to the Holidays?

love.

I like the first shirt better, I have the same one in red and it's really comfortable ;)
those hairclips are pretty awesome as well, especially the black one!

Rain said...

Sheryl Wong said...

i love bows too! They look great.

Btw, I kind of like your black skirt. It's cute.

electrictea said...

My vote is with the second one, and the first pic is so cute, teehee :)
