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….

The Short Straw

I’m standing in the changing rooms looking like an overgrown five year old wearing her mother’s frock. Except I’m not five, and I’m not wearing my mother’s clothes, I’m simply short. There, I said it. Short with a capital S. Five foot one to be precise. If you’ve ever taken an overly generous lump off [...]

Don Denim

I think we all deserve a guilt free treat for struggling through January on stretched-out pennies but the question remains what should we spend our hard earned cash on? Denim is your answer. It’s set to be one of the biggest trends of Spring/Summer 2013 and key statement denim pieces are starting to treacle into [...]

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 [...]

Party Dresses for Your Shape

In what seems to be the busiest week of the year, picking your party dress can become a stressful experience. And with all the peplum frills, lace and bodycon, choosing the right dress without getting distracted by trends can be daunting. And seeing as an increasing amount of us are cutting the crowds and the [...]

Novelty Knits

You either love them or hate them but you have to admit Christmas wouldn’t be the same without novelty knits invading your personal space. In the early nineties a BHS Christmas jumper you were made to wear by your Mum was everything but cool. However over a period of time seasonal sweaters have managed to [...]

The Jazz Age circa 2012

I’m a hat-happy kind of a girl. With the first hint of a chill, I’m digging out my cosiest, warmest beanies and fedoras. I don’t believe you have to be a “hat person” to partake either. Discovering that first perfect style that frames the face beautifully and adds a subtle elusiveness is the secret weapon [...]

To Infinity And Beyond

It’s time to go back to the future…but only if you’re looking for statement pieces rather than staple pieces! Popping up in high street stores is a new trend that you probably weren’t expecting this autumn/winter season. Topshop has gone mad for the Galactia trend with everything from cosmic printed midi skirts and co-ordinating blazers. [...]

Texture Me

It’s exciting seeing the high street stores being stocked up with all new Autumn/Winter collections and I’m loving it (not the cold rainy weather though). I’ve noticed lots of textures about so far this season so what better way to keep warm and stylish whilst snuggling up in a comfy fluffy jumper. Everyone will be [...]

LFW: Top Trends SS13

Daytime metallics, dungarees and a continuing fever for all things sport featured heavily and often humorously (see Maarten van der Horst’s take on his Tesco inspired outfit) at London Fashion Week. Here’s a peek at next season’s top trends. Metallic’s Mermaid metallic’s stood out, especially in outerwear. You may think sequins and metallic leather jackets [...]

Fresher Fashion

You’re moving away from your home city and have a million and one things to worry about; making new friends, paying bills for the first time and having to navigate your way around different streets. These are the primary worries for most fresher students but once you’ve settled in and attending lectures through the day [...]

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 [...]

Stand To Attention

September is now upon us and our favourite high street stores were in a serious hurry to stock up on autumn/winter trends after our abysmal summer.   I don’t think I’m alone in saying that I get way too excited at the prospect of new season clothes and I start wishing I had a diary [...]

Legging Good

In the eighties, it was super on trend to wear them with an oversized baggy jumper and a perm if you dared. In the nineties, it was all about bright colours and patterns, and I am not ashamed to admit, I sported a rather fetching Minnie Mouse pair. However, now they are more of a [...]

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 [...]
