Polka Perfect

Wednesday, March 19th, 2008

betsy-johnson-polka-dot-organza-dress.jpgAfter spotting so many beautiful Betsey Johnson creations in magazines over the last few seasons I decided to see what all the fuss was about. Being an American brand it is difficult to acquire items of clothing over here except online or in the small but pretty boutique in Covent Garden, London.

So it’s just natural for me to consistently browse the website for more clothes and make regular visits to London too. On my last website hunt I found this gorgeous Polka Dot Organza Dress with Sash. Betsey is well known for her strapless mini dresses and judging by the comfort of the dress, the length and the prettiness they are so worth the expensive price tags.

This dress is available at Betsey Johnson online costing $325.

Smart & Sassy

miss-selfridge-crochet-bib-blouson-top.jpgIt’s always a mission to find a cute white shirt but Miss Selfridge have made it just that little bit easier by creating and selling this Crochet Bib Blouson Top.

White shirts can be great for a day at the office or a smart evening on the town, perhaps a dinner, something a little less formal than black tie events. So investing in one that would look super sassy with a pencil skirt and Louboutin’s is essential. This Miss Selfridge Crochet Bib Blouson Top is fitted at the waist providing an hour glass shape and short sleeves to reveal the inner and outer arm.

Get yours at Miss Selfridge online for the affordable price of just £22.

Another Little Black Dress

Wednesday, March 19th, 2008

celine-strapless-jersey-dress.jpgLast season I went super crazy for the little black dress and I have to say my obsession has not really gone. The LBD is still unbeaten when it comes to a special occasion in need of a stunning outfit so here’s another that may take your fancy.

Sticking with the strapless style this season the Celine Strapless Jersey dress is elegant and stylish with a boned bust and a weighted uneven hem. The unusual hem has a longer piece at the front rather than the back of the dress which a uniqueness about the dress that others lack. Accessorise the dress with anything from large beads to diamante chokers. Wear bright accessories for spring/summer and sparkly ones for autumn/winter.

Get your Celine Strapless jersey dress at Net A Porter costing £1,000.

Bright In Blue

Marc Jacobs Airliner leather clutchAnother bright and beautiful bag has caught my attention, the Airliner Leather Clutch from Marc by Marc Jacobs. Striking colours not only make a statement they make an outfit.

Clutch bags are the perfect accessory for an evening out, not to big to cause drama through tight spaces in bars and clubs and not to big to small so that you can fit the well needed cell phone, cards and cash, keys, mascara and lippy. This turquoise leather fold over clutch is just the ticket. Paired with a lovely white top and blue skinny jeans would make your look fabulous but that’s just one idea.

Invest in your Marc by Marc Jacobs Airliner leather clutch from Net A Porter for £205.

Well forgot the holiday for the moment and invest in clothes for the summer season. This Strapless Ruched Top is cute, cool and casual, perfect for hitting the beach in. What’s great is that you can get it in blue (pictured here), purple, white and black.

Pefectly Pink For Prom

Monday, March 17th, 2008

betty-jackson-strapless-taffeta-dress.jpgProm season is arriving and that beautiful dress should be at the top of your shopping list. Why? Because every girl wants to shine at their prom. The average prom would be held to celebrate the end of school or college however its not just the prom attendees who are in need of the perfect dress. Balls, galas, dinners and parties are always popping up in the social diary.

On my recent search I came across a beauty by Betty Jackson. This dusky pink strapless taffeta dress with rosette detailing could not be more appropriate and in season. Strapless dresses are everywhere right now and are so flattering. The shaply dress provides curves in the right places and the colour would look fantastic on the english rose or the sunkissed sweetheart.

The Betty Jackson strapless taffetta dress is available at My Warbrobe online, priced at £343.

Sunday, March 9th, 2008

topshop-pleat-front-tea-dress.jpgOne of the key spring trends is the tea dress and now it’s available in almost every high street store. Topshop have a lovely variety.

I love floral patterns but I you can’t argue with the plain dress. Easy to match, perfect for any outing as it’s not too dressy but not to casual and a key piece for any girls wardrobe. This Topshop Pleat Front Tea Dress with tie back and slash detail is versatile, flattering and easy to wear.
