The Bra of All Bras!

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

Wonderbra Multi Plunge BraWhether they are strapless, one shoulder, low cut or puff sleeved, summer dresses seem to be everywhere I turn. Lovely and floaty or short and chic, I just have to have them…ALL of them!

However, there was something very important that I failed to remember when I rushed out to buy my first two new dresses of the summer (FYI a gorgeous backless dress and a floral dress with cut away shoulders). However lovely my dresses seemed at the time of purchase, trying them on again at home I realised that they would never look quite right without the correct underwear. In my opinion, there is nothing worse than visible bra straps. And the clear straps you can get often end up looking a lot like cellotape! So I began searching on the internet for something amazing, and that’s what I found. Introducing The Wonderbra Multi Plunge Bra from online store Lingerieplease.co.uk.

Believe it or not, this bra comes with 3 sets of straps that can be moved to over 100 positions, which means no visible bra straps with ANY style dress or top. Yippee! So, for £25.99, you are effectively getting around 100 different bras!

Available in Black, Skin and White, you have no excuse for looking anything less than drop dead gorgeous in your summer gear this year!

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

Ferriti Grecian contrast DressGo Grecian with Alberta Ferretti! In my eyes there is nothing more stunning than a floaty Grecian inspired dress and Alberta Ferretti obviously feel the same with their spring/summer Grecian inspired dress collection.

This dress is certainly in keeping with the romantic mood that is flooding our high street stores this summer. The asymmetric design accentuated by contrasting colours works really well and is perfectly set off by the stunning side embellishment.

Be prepared to wow your friends in this little number! Purchase the Alberta Ferretti Bi-colored Grecian dress from net a porter for £1,655 today!

Romantic Frills!

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

Topshop Frilly DressI am so into the romantic look this season, soft frills in delicate chiffon and silk is so feminine and will make you any woman feel like a lady!

Topshop have got the look down to a tee with this beautiful silk frill dress. The tiered ra ra skirt is a key piece this season, so this dress works perfectly with the tiered ra ra effect that is on the bottom half of the dress. It gives it a fun flirty feel whilst the delicate fabrics maintain that romantic mood that oozes elegance and femininity.

The pale grey really works on this dress; however it does come in a stunning dusty pink that is ultra feminine and would look fab with a tan!

Marios Schwab Unique Dress!

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

Marios Schwab Lilac DressMarios Schwab never fails to create a great dress and this dress certainly follows Schwab’s flawless reputation in the dress department. Schwab has really experimented with this truly unique dress! It’s such a stylish design that was inspired by the inner structure of garments resulting in internal features being applied to the external look of the garment; a bizarre idea that works surprisingly well!

I think the print is really striking on this dress; it is uniquely placed and brought together by an elastic strap that creates cap sleeves; a very complex design that is definitely a head turner!

For £850, it is definitely worth every penny! You can buy yours today From Browns Fashion online!

Fendi Peacock Evening BagFendi have a fantastic new bag collection that is sending fashionista’s into a frenzy! This collection is inspired by peacocks with feathers being a main feature of the collection.

This silver peacock evening bag has to be the most stunning from the collection. The long rectangular crystal panels give it that extra glitz that will add immediate glamour to your outfit. The metallic peacock feathers that fringe the bag are actually made out of leather, slightly more practical and hardwearing than real feathers! This particular bag costs £785.

Marc Jacob’s Quilted BagQuilted bags, jackets and accessories have never been my thing until I saw this fabulous bag from Marc Jacobs. The bag design is really unusual; I love how the handle twists and the contrast of the quilted leather against the plain. It is the perfect spring bag and will look fab with those fresh spring neutrals.

A great bag is the key to a great outfit and this bag is definitely capable of making any outfit! To purchase this key piece, check out Asos, it costs £595 but is definitely a keeper!

H&M Marimekko DressH&M have produced a whole collection in tribute to Marimekko, a Finnish textile company that is renowned for its bold and bright textiles. They have used vibrant prints from the Marimekko archive to create 70 pieces for men, women and children.

It’s a great collection that consists of fun retro prints that have received a ‘modern twist’ by the H&M design team. The colours are not for the faint hearted, expect to see red and pink mixed with turquoise and black, anything goes!

Ethnic Jewellery

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

Topshop Ethnic NecklaceThe ethnic style is always a great look for summer; this would explain why it always seems to be a hot trend every year! I think the best way to portray this look is with accessories; stacking bangles, layering lots of multicoloured beaded necklaces is just a couple of essential ways you can achieve this look.

If you are unsure of what necklaces to layer and what bangles to stack, Topshop has created the ultimate ethnic necklace to help you along the way! It’s a great accessory that combines many rows of individual beaded necklaces to make a statement and really enhance that ethnic look.

For £20 I think it is well worth the money, Buy yours today from Topshop online.


The Abercrombie Look!

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

Abercrombie&Fitch Tank TopBasic tank tops and t shirts are essential for those warm sunny months, the laid back look always looks fab and who better to show us how to achieve this look than the ultimate casual label; Abercrombie and Fitch.

They always manage to make that effortless style look sexy and chic, this plain grey tank is a perfect example of how they do this. The style is very plain but the subtle lace detailing around the neckline gives it that edge and makes it Abercrombie. Worn with cotton shorts or a washed out denim skirt would complete this laidback look and would be a perfect summer outfit.

Available in a range of colours for £30 each this tank is a staple piece for summer.
