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 [...]

Retail Heaven and Hell

Working in retail, one requirement of my job led a customer to actually refer to me as Satan. Yes, you read right. Satan. Seven hours into my nine hour, Saturday pay-day weekend shift, I never expected my name and the devil to be combined in the same sentence.   One would think I had negatively [...]

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 [...]

Minimalist Strappy Sandals

Spring/Summer 2012 brings many delicious footwear styles, the minimalist strappy sandal being one of them.  It’s a delicate choice, a way to keep a busy outfit balanced or simply a way to add femininity.  The styles below are similar to the ones worn by Rihanna during the Battleship premiere in Australia, but each carries its [...]

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. [...]

Love Lace

Lace has always been a timeless classic, whether it’s for clothing, underwear, bridal and wedding dresses or even home furnishings and textiles, it always seems to be incorporated somehow, somewhere along the line.   Head to your local high street or even designer outlets and I gurantee if you look hard enough you will notice [...]

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 [...]

Loud Statement Rings

When it comes to jewellery I am anything but subtle, in this case, less is not always more. I love wearing chunky chains, having rings adorn my fingers and wearing earrings that are big enough to rival the great Pat Butcher.   One of the looks for this year is again going to be tribal, [...]

The New Denim

Now that the new year is in full swing and the sale items are crowding the shops, the time for a new year’s wardrobe to go with your new year’s resolutions has never been more convenient.   In an industry were shopping for clothes can cost you a month’s rent, it’s easy to get carried [...]

Spring 2012 Trend: Bird Print

Forget floral print, as designers are flocking to textiles that include bird prints this spring!   Patterns including swans, pheasants and other bold prints are bringing birds to life on the catwalk this season and have found their way onto almost every piece of clothing and accessory you can think of, from tops, dresses, pants [...]

Post-Sales Styles

If you’re finding yourself gifted with some Christmas money and Father Christmas didn’t quite deliver then be sure to invest your pennies wisely in 2012’s hottest trends. There’s nothing more satisfying than being able to say you were one of the first to own or wear something. So read on to ensure you’re the first [...]

Charity Shops Lament

As I was walking down the high street the other day, I found myself getting increasingly frustrated. It was not just because of the slow walkers (who, while I’m on the subject need their very own ‘slow coach lane’ on the pavement; that way they can stop and admire the sky to their hearts’ content [...]

Don’t Blend In this Winter

Living in England we rarely experience any summer. This year was no different, we only got a handful of actual sunny days. Personally I don’t think one or two days of sunshine are enough to pull out every one of my bright coloured clothes that I had stacked up from the previous year’s summer sales. [...]
