Ready for Spring: 5 wishlish items

1. Every girl needs an everyday handbag, and this beauty from Class International is so versatile. Inspired by the iconic and timeless style of Audrey Hepburn, this classic handbag in a navy hue will be a perfect accessory for spring, summer even winter! 2. For me, spring is all about experimenting with colours and patterns, and this [...]

Autumn Attire

I hate the cold weather, dull, dark and dreary, it’s not something I particularly welcome. But you know what they say, every miserable grey cloud has a silver lining…. that being the excuse to buy more clothes of course! Whilst I don’t like the weather I do love the autumn/winter fashion, burgundy, deep fiery colours, [...]

Bold Brash SS13 Prints

There are some really “out there” prints available at the moment.  Are you brave enough to be so bold?  Check out the Barbie comic leggings by Miss Selfridge, they’re our favourite of the selection….

It’s as Simple as Black and White

I have never been, and quite frankly never will be, a fan of sales; in fact I like to avoid them at all costs. January therefore is a waiting game for me as I eagerly anticipate new season clothes and accessories like a puppy drooling at a butcher’s window. So as sale items are slowly [...]

Many Shades of Purple

If there is one colour you want to be seen wearing this season, it’s definitely the many shades of purple. Berry, Burgundy, Claret, Grape, Lavender, Lilac, Maroon, Plum, Oxblood, Violet, take your pick as they are all a big hit for Autumn/Winter and I for one have gone berry crazy!   Whether you want to [...]

Autumn/Winter Trend Alert

Winter warmers… in September? I know what your thinking, I feel your pain! Believe me, I wish it wasn’t this time of year already but with our unfortunate summer (or lack of) and the weather set to fall even further down hill, it’s about time we think about our winter wardrobe!   With rain, storms [...]

Sexy Snakeskin

Everywhere you look there seems to be something in a snakeskin print.  Whether you are brave enough to don pants or a dress or simply want to add a splash of the print, this is one trend we absolutely love.   It was big last autumn/winter and its’s still going strong.   Click images to [...]

Love Leather AW12-13

Although it’s been around in previous seasons but it’s going to be here with a vengeance for Autumn/Winter 2012-13.  Leather, in all it’s shapes, sizes, textures and forms, is one of the key trends for the season.   Whilst leather shorts look absolutely amazing, unless you have the straight, rather than curvy, figure for them, [...]

Lost In Topshop Translation

It’s fifteen degrees outside and it’s the middle of winter. As if living in New Zealand wasn’t good already, my friend recently informed me there is a Topshop just ten minutes down the road. Why would one ever want to leave such a place!?   Said friend has a car so one, fine Saturday (did [...]

Festival Fever

Say hello to the festival season.   Last weekend officially brought the festival season to a beginning with ‘Rockness’ in Scotland and ‘The Parklife Weekender’ in Manchester. Dizzie Rascal, Kelis, Nero and Noah & The Whale headlined this more recently established North West festival. And with Lovebox London, Kendal Calling and the Reading and Leeds [...]

Jubilee Party Clothes On The High Street

A party weekend such as this requires some party attire.  Something that works during the day and night means you can party on ’til your mind and body allows.   By accessorising with the right shoes, bag, scarf, jewellery or hat, you can add some extra vava voom to these items.  Available on the high [...]

Pretty Peplums For Spring/Summer 2012

Peplums have burst back onto the scene this spring/summer 2012 season and luckily, like most of the other trends this season, it’s a wonderful one. (Well, I think so anyway!)   This structured yet feminine trend puts emphasis on the waist making for both a striking, sexy silhouette and a fun, funky accessory at the [...]

The Mullet Is Back…

Don’t worry there is no need to shield your eyes from the screen, as I definitely don’t mean the hairdo, phewww! Of course, I’m referring to the mullet hemline trend!   This sexy yet feminine trend is perfect for when you can’t decide between party or casual, modest or sassy, maxi or mini… instead you [...]

Stars and Stripes

Scrambling frantically at my keyboard in a desperate bid to win a pair of stars and stripes shorts (which is something I’ve been trying to get my hands on for weeks now by the way) I realised one thing, well two things actually…   The first being the realization that I was never going to [...]

Dare You Wear A Flatform?

Is it a wedge? Is it a flat? Could be a pair of heels? No, it’s a flatform! Nestled among the loafers and Sperry’s lurks a new breed of shoe. If you thought this season’s neon’s and Aztec prints were as far out as fashion could get, then brace yourself for the ‘flatform’. Here is [...]

Bold Prints For Summer Holidays

There is a lot of print around this season, from delicate, barely-there prints to bold in your face designs. Celebrities such as Florence Welch and Rihanna have really rocked this look recently but if it’s not your style to be quite so brash, you can infuse your outfits with as little print as you desire. [...]

Spring Clean Your Style

As usual our eccentric English weather has surprised us with an unexpected dose of early spring weather. So if you’re clambering through your wardrobe searching for something that isn’t a) black, or b) of the chunky knit variety, or you’re hiking up the high street in search of something that little bit more inspiring – [...]

1950s Fashion For SS12

Fifties fashion has a great way of bringing that feminine, summery feel to your wardrobe.  Think polka dots, full dresses, high waist shorts, frills, cat’s eyes sunglasses and stripes.   Bright colours are aplenty when it comes to this trend and it’s one that you will see increasingly more of as the weather improves.   [...]

Pretty Pastel Pumps

Ballerina pumps are incredibly comfortable for the most part.  Whilst some of the prettiest ones can be so inviting you do need to watch where you step lest you pierce the pump’s sole on a piece of broken glass.  That piece of depressing news aside, pumps come in a vast array of colours and styles [...]

Summery Shorts for SS12

Whilst black is beautiful, one can’t help but look forward to the uplifting hues that go hand in hand with the long, bright days.  Whilst some of these bottom-skimming shorts may be a step too far for some of you, we’ve picked some slightly longer ones too.  However, there aren’t many reasonably priced feminine, summery shorts [...]
