CRYSTALS are a girls best friend…

Friday, June 27th, 2008

The Paris Blush DressSwarovski crystals that is! We’re seeing them on everything these days, and they look amazing… especially on clothes. Gorgeous Couture (www.gorgeouscouture.com) have made a stunning line of dresses with these pretty little crystals, calling it Crystalized.

There’s over 50 unique dresses done up with Swarovski’s! If that isn’t amazing enough, at Gorgeous Couture they have a special section called “Made to Measure” where you can get a dress in any size, and any colour, customized to fit you!

Personally, I fell IN LOVE with the bronze “Paris Blush” swarovski dress (pictured). A dress like this puts you back £155, but it looks worth every penny.

Practical Princess Bikini BagsI was reading this months Cosmo Magazine and saw a feature about Amanda Holden and her home comforts. She mentioned that every few months a company called The Practical Princess come to her home, organise her wardrobe and colour code her items. Personally I don’t have enough clothes to qualify for a wardrobe assistant to come round but what a fabulous idea!

I have been on their website and not only do they offer this personal service, they also sell products to help maintain the tidiness of your wardrobe and keep everything in order. Products such as hangers, shoe drawers, bikini bags (pictured), drawer dividers and drawer inserts are all available to buy online.

So if you’re lucky enough to have a wardrobe that requires a personal assistant then check out www.practicalprincess.com for more information.

New Look Trouser: Hareem!

Friday, June 13th, 2008

Hareem TrouserThe Hareem trouser is a popular shape this season, it’s perfect for the summer due to its loose and airy fit and is particularly handy for those who like to cover their bottom half on holiday. The trouser shape is ¾ length and therefore covers all those wobbly bits, fantastic! It is extremely flattering for all body shapes and is therefore a must this season.

Topshop is a great stop for Hareem trousers, this particular pair is from the store and costs £22; perfect for those daring types, however if you prefer something more subtle check out their cream linen pair of Hareems, they’re just as fab!
