The Irresistible Five…

I often develop major crushes on labels. And when I do I go back to them again and again because they are in line with my style and feel very “me.” Here are five labels that I am totally in love with at the moment:

Soru – the name comes from the Sicilian word for sisters and was launched in 2013 by two Sicilian/British sisters Francesca and Marianna. I only recently came across this brand and it was literally love at first sight. I don’t often wear statement pieces when it comes to jewellery but I would buy everything from this brand (AND its very reasonably priced!) They combine natural semi-precious stones with Swarovski crystals, and each piece is unique and has its own natural energy!

Solace London – I had come across this brand before, but only paid attention when it recently launched on Net-a-Porter. The one-shoulder top I wore is elegant but a bit funky at the same time and worked perfectly with my bump. Some people prefer to wear very fitted styles during their pregnancy but I find that voluminous tops (paired with some super skinny jeans) can be just as flattering. What I really can’t wait to wear are their jumpsuits but sadly these don’t work with a bump so it will be a few more weeks until I fit into one of those!

We Are Leone – I wore my first ever We Are Leone piece last summer on my mini moon in Lake Como with a white swimsuit It was such a statement piece that it needed nothing else! But what I really love about the brand is that it is SO versatile. You can just as easily wear their long maxi-cardigans on the beach as you can in the city with a pair of jeans. They are made from a light-weight Italian silk so you can pack them very easily and they remain pretty much crease-free. And they have been amazing during pregnancy – they only come in one size but truly fit all!

MSGM – Off the shoulder AND with ribbons? That’s two things I adore rolled into one. I found this MSGM dress on and instantly clicked “add to bag.” The brand is actually known for its bold vibrant prints but this season they have quite a few more neutral bits and I love the one-shoulder tops in blue and white!

Self-Portrait – I’ve been buying Self-Portrait dresses for a while but every season they come out with more and more amazing pieces and I still think the prices are beyond reasonable. One of my favourite dresses so far this year has been the pleated gown I wrote about last month, and last week I bought this ruffled lace mini dress which fortunately I can still wear with my bump. The pieces are so timeless, and I really can’t wait to re-wear some of the dresses I bought last year as soon as I fit back into them post pregnancy.

Below are some of my favourite pieces out now from each of the brands – click on the links to buy. Also I have now launched a new Instagram for my clothes sale called ‘@thefashionbugblogclothessale.’ Just to clarify I am selling a few of the items I have recently shot but mostly older pieces which I love but need to get rid of to make some space for new clothes! If you are interested in anything then please pop me an email on All prices are written below the pieces, I’ll be using paypal to take payment, items are non-refundable and non-returnable and postage will be on top of the price stated! But I have some lovely pieces at very reasonable prices so happy shopping!
