My friend Lol sent me an image of a watch she was lusting after from Olivia Burton and told me to have a look at their collections. I did, and I fell in love. Their watch collection is just exquisite, very subtle in design and have a beautiful elegance about them, not only are they pleasing to the eye but they are also kind to the bank at affordable prices. I decided to put together two wish list outfits, one based on the watch Lol has on her wish list and an outfit round her style and the other on mine. First lets find out a little bit about who Olivia Burton are.
"Lesa Bennett and Jemma Fennings are the duo behind the brand. Having met on their first day at London College of Fashion they both have extensive experience in the fashion industry, formerly buying for the likes of Selfridges and ASOS. When they couldn’t find a watch that fulfilled their need for style, Olivia Burton London created their own. Inspired by vintage and catwalk the collection is distinctive, contemporary and fun."
Olivia Burton Animal Motifs
This look is based around Lol's style and I was not surprised to see that she loved the 'Animal Motifs' Olivia Burton watch with the hummingbird image on (hummingbirds are kinda her thing). The Sheinside dress highlights Lol's style for simple cuts but with intricate detail from the lace. To emphasise the vintage strap theme from the watch the Topshop cut out boots and Cambridge Satchel do the job perfectly. This look is a great summer staple.
Olivia Burton Modern Vintage
For my look I used the title of the Olivia Burton watch 'Modern Vintage' to inspire me, I wanted to go for a very modern look but with classic style. The Choies dress has a very classic cut with it's midi length but an added casualness through the t-shirt looking top. The eBay bag is simple and works well with the Sophie Webster shoes as it leaves all the emphasis on them. This is a great monochrome day to night look and I so wish I could afford those shoes.
