Twinning with my Mini Me

Today marks the comeback of my little niece, Luli, to The Glitter Den. (Also, have you noticed it's now .com and not blogspot.com? Nifty, huh?)
Now, being a four-year-old with maybe too much sass, she has days where she is repulsed by me and days where she is my best buddy. Today was a best buddy kinda day. The best kind. So of course we had to show our unity by co-ordinating our outfits. 
We pretty much have identical pink faux fur coats. We think that every girl, whether they're 4 or 94, should own one.

Living in a house where girls out number boys by 5-3, pets included, we have to have a designated 'pink' wash. It so happened that today was also a pink wash day. What an excellent backdrop!

I didn't even have to show Luli how to pose, she's the sassiest girl I know. 

And also the tastiest...

We kept arguing over who got to wear the heart shaped sunglasses...

She won, obvs...

I admitted defeat and continued to put out the washing when a little rascal jumped out at me from the basket...

She insisted that she didn't mean to scare me and that the bucket was in fact magical...

It was the truth! It kept transforming us into each other.

Just kidding, it's not the bucket that's magical, it's us! 

My skirt is from Lavish Alice, the clutch is New Look and Luli's sunglasses are from River Island. 

Luli's coat is from Next and her dress is H&M. 

This little guy is from Lazy Oaf and it's my favourite jumper in the world! 

Yes, Luli did dress herself and yes, her shoes are on the wrong feet. We didn't realise until afterwards, oops! Her little sparklers are from Clarks and mine are ASOS. 

We hope you enjoyed this post and let me know if you'd like to see another collaboration between me and Luli as I need to negotiate with her manager in advance. She's a busy lady.

Motel Wishlist

I haven't yet done a wishlist on my blog but boy, was it fun. It's like window shopping for the digital land, except instead of having your personal space invaded by aggressive shoppers or moping around in the cold, you can recline in bed, with your wet hair in a turby-towel and your purring cat to your left... Just me? 

My destination for online browsing today was Motel. I've always been a big fan of Motel, I love that you can get pretty much every print in whatever ever style you want, be it a twosie, a jumpsuit or a dress. 

After witnessing the tiniest glimmer of spring sunshine, it's got me feeling all summery has fuelled these picks. I have also arranged them in order to suit the chillier start of spring to the hot depths of the summer. 

Let me talk you through my choices...

1. The Lorna Jumpsuit - I love feeling like I'm in my pyjamas (I wrote about it here) so this pyjama-style jumpsuit is a dream. You don't have to think twice about slipping in to a jumpsuit, it's the ultimate lazy girls technique to looking polished with ease. 

You will find us feeling lazy but looking cute at the cinema or out eatin' burgers together. 

2. The Agatha Cropped Jacket and the Alice A-Line skirt - Now these may be sold seperately but together they are a dream! I am a sucker for a twosie or anything matching and these little honeys are just ideal. 

You will find the three of us prancing through a sunny, yellow meadow together. 

3. The Elza Dress - Yes, we all know the 70's are a thing this spring/summer and I'm not complaining. Get me anything with a bell sleeve and a retro print and I'm yours... And by yours I mean I'll share all my sweets with you and maybe let you brush my hair. 

You will find us hiding our sweets from you. 

4. The Meadow Slip Dress - I don't need to say much about this other than, someone sprinkle some scales on me and toss me a shell bra because I'm The Little Mermaid. 

You will find us hanging around with our pal Sebastian, Under the Sea. 

5. The Bessie Crop Top and the Cecile Culottes - Oh lawdy, lawd! If you've seen here, here and here, I actually did a little series dedicated to my relationship with culottes. I bloody love them, I do, so this summer-print, twosie version is a dream for me. 

You will find the three of us in Vegas in a little white chapel.  
6. The Anderson Dress - What's not to adore about this little number? The print is glorious, the style is glorious, the fact you can dress it up and dress it down is glorious. 

You will find us partying at festivals in the Summer, Summer, Summertime! 

Sorry if this post makes you want to spend your dollar but at least you'll be lookin' adorable. What is your favourite out of my picks?
