Ocean Vibes

It's new release time at Ertwilder and the Ocean Vibes Collection is absolutely amazing! As a huge fan of all things Ocean or Nautical themed I knew that I needed most if not all of this collection. Featuring crabs and krakens, turtles and pinup pretties this is one stand out favourite collection of 2018! Yes, I'm calling, well that is it until Halloween. Of course I've gone full sailor pinup style for this collection wearing stripes and lots of blue. A quick trip to Lombard's for the Marine hat, and we have the perfect look.


Brian B Quaid is a funky little fella! A super sweet mixture of bright and pale pink resin make up this little guys body and he pops like crazy with each and every outfit.  

Those cute little antennae, feet and tail plus the tradition shrimp/prawn curl make Brain a super adorable brooch. I never thought it was possible to make this crustacean loveable, but Erstwilder has done it and this little guy has won my heart.

The hand painted detailing on this brooch makes it ever more precious and I'll be wearing this all summer long.

Erstwilder accessories aren't merely brooches, earrings and necklaces each item is a work of art. Paying homage to the legend of the Kracken this multi patterned and textured statement necklace is bold and beautifully designed.

The shimmering resin patterns create multiple levels magic and beautifully capture the Kracken's attack. Those tentacles take over and create an epic story. With a medium length silver chain you can wear this as low or high as you want and works perfectly with a large chest. This style also looks amazing when worn over high necklines in both patterns and solids. 

For this look I HAD to double up so I paired the Kracken with the B52 denying Not A Rock Lobster. This is my second Erstwilder lobster and my favourite of the two. This little crustacean not only gets Rock Lobster firmly stuck in my head but it floods my mind with images of Sebastian from the Little Mermaid - my absolute favourite character.

Perfectly crafted with those over sized claws and beady little eyes this piece has inspired me to find the perfect lobster printed dress to pair with it. Now bring on the beach parties!

What's this another crustacean? No crab jokes here though we already had too many puns with the Kracken name he he.The huggable decapod is a lovable little guy created with the same resin used in the Not A Rock Lobster. I can't get enough of these both of these pieces but then again I'm such a sucker for big red claws.

Just look at him! Giant claws or not I'd hug him! I've recently found an amazing faux leather bright blue moto jacket and both of these red resign peices would look brilliant with it.

These are just a small selection of the collection and you can find jellies, a merman, turtles and more! Which is your favourite from Ocean Vibes? 

I just had to include another image of this pairing as its perfection. But this post doesn't end here! Last week Erstwilder released their collaboration with Dangerfield. Creating some of the cutest socks on the planet featuring iconic Erstwilder pieces. Being a crazy cat lady,I had to snap up two of my favourite felines.

Farrah is my style icon. Sporting a little red beret, nautical striped neckerchief and specs she is purrfection. So when this French kitty arrived at Dangerfield in sock form I had had to have a pair and knew exactly how I would style them. 

Paired with my bright red patent Bordello Teeze heels the print and colour combo is pure magic. You can purchase a single pair of these or a 3 pack. They are a soft and super comfortable sock and I'll be hiding these from my hubby as he's likely to steal them.

For this review I wanted to show you guys that socks don't have to be hidden and pair beautifully with a variety of heels or flats. Pair both of these looks with a cute skater skirt and pussy bow blouse for an adorable outfit.

One of my most loved and treasured Erstwilder brooches is here in sock form!!!!! I'm a huge Bowie fan and wear my brooch version of this little fella with pride. So it was obvious that these babies would be my my second choice. 

The perfect mixture of grey and back with a bold edge. These obviously needed to be paired with my black Pleaser's but will work wonderfully with reds, blues or even yellow shoes. Available in a single pair or a 3 pack so half your week is sorted!

Feline Bowie will forever have my heart but now he warms my tootsies! Each pair of heels featured in this post are from Shoe Me and if you are fast enough you can snap up an amazing discount via their website right now!! Details are listed below the image.

  1. I love it! It is really giving me USO 1940's feels. I especially love the dress and all the accessories.
