Bargain of the week: Your new winter shoes for £22

Black sweetheart mid courts, £22, Dorothy Perkins
These shoes are perfect. Perfect point, perfect texture, perfect heel size, perfect price and perfectly versatile.

I spotted them a few weeks back when a friend was working them with jeans at a birthday party and knew right then that these shoes had to go on the bargain of the week hit list. At just £22, these Dorothy Perkins mid courts will see you through Christmas parties and still keep you on your toes for 2013. Perfect.

Watch what I'm wearing

Classic St Andrews, $197, c/o Daniel Wellington; Bracelet, homemade

I took this picture a few weeks back in sunnier climes but have pretty much not stopped wearing this watch since it fell through my letter box.

Rose gold is everywhere at the moment - but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I find yellow gold can be a bit too much for my complexion, whereas silver can get a bit dull; but the pinky tones of this metal are just right for adding a bit of intrigue to autumn work outfits, don't you think?

Fashion with a conscience

Maybe it's the fact that I'm approaching a quarter of a century - *gulp* - or maybe it's because fashion is getting so much more mindful of itself, but there seems to be a lot more style with high morals on my radar these days. Just take these beauties for example:

Bing Bang set of arrow head rings, £54, ASOS
1. ASOS Green Room
ASOS's platform dedicated to pioneering ethical and eco-friendly brands is, simply put, brilliant. Not only do they stock big labels like People Tree and Dr Bronner, but there are tons of exclusives too. I highly recommend Made jewellery, handcrafted in Africa, and Anna Sheffield's Bing Bang accessories.

Fair+True fair trade Erin dress, £75,
Fashion conscience stocks the best in organic, vegan, sustainable, recycled and fair trade. But what this online shop really does best is add a massive kick of colour and print to your wardrobe. Check out the gorgeous Fair+True or rely on good old Vivienne Westwood for some fancy footwear.

BHI JAE satchel, £225, Tommy Hilfiger
3. Tommy Hilfiger and BHI
Having a conscience isn't just about the environment, however. For the sixth consecutive year, Tommy Hilfiger is partnering with Breast Health International to raise awareness and funds for women who are fighting breast cancer. This oh-so Tommy Hilfiger style bag may be £225 but one third of that goes straight to the BHI.

Bargain of the week: Richard Nicoll dresses for £50

Long bustier dress (pink and white), £70 instead of £300; 
Mini hoop cocktail dress (pink and white), £50 instead of £250

Oh hello pretty dresses, nice to see you again. Oh, and what's this? You're £200 off in the Topshop sale? Well, don't mind if I do...

These beauties were part of the Richard Nicoll for Topshop collection and are now seriously discounted in the mid-season sale. Ok, so it's *technically* a bridal collection but no one else needs to know that right?

Act fast though, there are limited sizes left!
