Winter Blues!

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

Zagliani Python BagElectric blue seems to be the colour of the moment! A healthy injection of colour is always welcome this time of year when winter seems never ending!

I always think the best way to adopt such a vibrant colour is in your accessories, that way it doesn’t matter if the colour doesn’t really suit you, as lets face it some of these vibrant colours are hard to pull off as they aren’t going to suit everyone’s skin tone.

If you’re experiencing this difficulty with the stunning electric blue that is bombarding our highstreet’s you will love this fantastic blue python handbag by Zagliani, a great bag design in a magnificent colour that is sure to brighten up you’re winter wardrobe! Perfect for beating those winter blues! For £1,270.00; python doesn’t come cheap! Order online today from Matches Fashion.

Welcome the 'Shoe Sandal'

Topshop Unique ‘Shoe Sandal’So, we all were amazed at the ‘shoe boot’ that entered our stores at the beginning of last season, the unusual combination of the two styles gave us a fresh new look which was hard to resist!

Well now spring is just around the corner it’s time to welcome the ‘shoe sandal!’ Yes this is the latest look for footwear, which is sending fashionista’s into a frenzy (especially me!)

Topshop Unique have truly lived up to their name with this funky pair of heels! I love the fact that they look like a pair of shoes that have been deconstructed to produce a sandal; very cool! The colour is fab too; a subtle green that will look great with washed out denim, another trend that is rearing its head for spring!

Reiss Spring 08 Collection!

Saturday, February 16th, 2008

Reiss Cream Tiered DressReiss’s new spring/summer collection is definitely one to look out for! This dress is a preview from the new collection and it’s just fab! I’ve always loved Reiss’s ability to consistently produce sophisticated designs that ooze elegance and epitomise chic and this dress is of no exception to Reiss’s signature style. I particularly love the beautiful tiered skirt detail as it is so unique and provides a classy alternative to the ra ra skirt.

The colour pallette is subtle yet effective; cream is perfect for showing off the stunning detail on this dress. I’m not sure how much this dress costs yet but I will definitely keep my eyes peeled for when it enters the store! Lets hope it doesn’t take too long!

Applique Floral!

Saturday, February 16th, 2008

Chloe Applique DressI love Chloe’s unique appliqué approach to the floral trend; most designers are experimenting with contrasting print ideas to reflect the upcoming trend but Chloe, however has taken a 3D approach to floral by beautifully embellishing flowers and leaves onto their garments.

I absolutely love this white strapless mini dress; such a simple shape but the stunning embellishments really bring this dress to life. Each flower includes a combination of embroidery, iridescent sequins and multicoloured beads, the colours are fun and vibrant; just what we need to refresh our wardrobes and prepare for summer!

This dress can be purchased from Matches Fashion for £1,664.00; pricey but worth it!
