Bikini Belles!

Friday, June 13th, 2008

Melissa Obadash BikiniI’ve recently been hunting for the perfect summer bikini and I think I’ve found it, well two!

They both follow the same twist technique that is really appealing! The first is by Melissa Odabash, may I say firstly; a beautiful colour choice! The unusual twist detail found on both sides of the bikini bottom is what first attracted me to this bikini, also the shape is perfect for smaller busts and the ruched detail will make the bust look fuller.

The second bikini is by Shay Todd, it uses this same twist technique but this time on the bikini top, I particularly love the bottoms of this bikini they are very unique and effective. The candy pink colour is perfect for those girly girls!

Both bikini’s can be purchased online from Net a porter, the first is a Melissa Odabash Olivia halter bikini and the second a Shay Todd Twisted bandeau bikini.

Two for One!

Friday, June 13th, 2008

Wang Detachable Skirt DressI love two for one deals that’s why I love this two for one dress with a detachable skirt! This is of course an Alexander Wang creation, Wang never fails to produce pieces that are unique, practical and exude exquisite attention to detail. This 100% silk grey dress certainly reflects those signature Wang trade marks!

The detachable salmon pink pleated skirt is a great idea and will hopefully lead to more two in one pieces as lets faces it girls it is a great wardrobe space saver!

If you’re curious of the skirt shape it starts from the drop waist and the hemline falls to mid thigh; in other words a perfect summer skirt! The price tag is £360.00, which is pretty reasonable when you are getting two garments. See Browns fashion for more info.


Get Wrapped!

Friday, June 13th, 2008

Margiela Gift Bow RingIt is now possible for us to gift wrap ourselves thanks to Maison Martin Margiela! Margiela has created this unusual silver gift bow ring; a bizarrely attractive creation that is truly unique!

I’m not sure if this ring is for me but I definitely commend whoever made this piece as it is magnificently sculptured and is a great piece of costume jewellery.

If you fancy being gift wrapped check out Browns fashion online to purchase your gift bow ring for £125!


The Gladiator Boot!

Friday, June 13th, 2008

Azzedine Alaia Gladiator BootsGladiator sandals are bigger than ever! They are a key look for the summer and it seems the bolder the better!

Azzedine Alaia has certainly taken inspiration from the gladiator style to make a statement this season. This particular pair of gladiator boots is gaining a lot of attention; it seems Alaia is already preparing for the winter with this versatile shoe design! I particularly love the python effect detail on these gladiator boots! They will look fantastic with an understated black mini dress!

If you’re craving to make a statement with a pair of gladiator sandals head to Browns fashion and buy your very own pair of gladiator boots for £1,050.00!


Jimmy Choo Shades!

Friday, June 13th, 2008

JJ shades by Jimmy ChooYes, it’s that time of year when we can finally dig out those shades to protect our eyes from those much awaited UV rays! However If you’re anything like me you have probably lost those favourite pair of shades from last year and are in search for a stylish new pair! If this is the case you may like to take a peek at Jimmy Choo’s new sunglasses collection that is overwhelmingly hot!

This black framed pair of sunglasses from the collection immediately caught my eye, the stunning knot detail in python effect ooozes glamour and style, while the grey shaded lense makes an interesting contrast against the shiny black frame. The small metal logo is also a very cute touch!

Buy yours today for £215!


St Erasmus Necklace!

Friday, June 13th, 2008

St Erasmus NecklaceCheck out this great site that I stumbled across; The Shopfloor Project! It was created by mother and daughter Denise and Samantha Allan in order to provide a space to “sell, exhibit and commission works by the most interesting artists and designers from around the world.”

One of my favourite finds from their selection of talent is St Erasmus; a company created by African born, Indian based jeweller Peter Erasmus. This particular necklace is from a collection called Ancient Tribe, the inspiration for this collection came from North African landscapes and architectural patterns. The detail in this piece is truly exquisite and is bound to gain a huge fan base!

Purchase this piece from the Shopfloor Project for £195!


Jessica Simpson Shoes

Sunday, June 8th, 2008

Jessica Simpson Mary JanesNow, I’m not too fond of Jessica Simpson, especially after getting to know her in “Newly Weds: Nick & Jessica”, BUT I am absolutely in love with her shoe line. I’ve browsed just about every style of shoe she has, and I can’t say there’s a pair I don’t like.

Personally, I only own one pair of Jessica Simpson shoes, and they are the main shoes I wear out. They’re stylish AND comfortable, which was shocking because whenever you see amazing shoes, it’s usually at the cost of your feet, and speaking of cost, Jessica’s shoes range from $80-$300, which can be anywhere from £40-£150, and I’d say that’s a bargain.

The shoes pictured are known as her Miami Mary Jane Shoes and will set you back $71.99. You can go through her whole collection at www.jessicasimpsononline.com and fall in love with your pair today!


Quilted Leathers

Sunday, June 8th, 2008

Chanel Quilted Leather BagSince Coco Chanel released their quilted leather & chains bag back in 2006, I’ve seen it everywhere. A real Chanel bag like this one retails at about £3,200, but you can get different versions and colours off the high street for as little as £55, from Topshop.

Marc Jacobs also has a similar styled quilted leather bag retailing at £400. The little black quilted bag is so chic, it goes with anything, and is especially elegant for a night out. Whether the bag is genuine Chanel, Marc Jacobs or Topshop, quilted leather is definitely still in.

The bag pictured is a genuine Chanel Flap Bag and can be found at Stylefinder.


Prom Please!

Friday, June 6th, 2008

Tightsplease Prom SheersOh Yes, Prom is just around the corner, which means but two things. Number 1; it’s the beginning of the summer (woohoo, yippee, hurrah), and number 2; what on earth shall I wear?? Luckily, Betsey Johnson had the answer a long time ago at the Spring/Summer 08 Catwalk. Accessories have transformed this pretty prom dress into a chic and edgy ensemble. Dressing for a dance is not as it used to be. It’s no longer about finding that one amazing dress but finding that one amazing dress and matching it with those amazing accessories! Don’t risk turning up and blending into the sea of well dressed pretty girls, but add your own twist with a leopard print cardy, metallic shoulder strap bag, hair accessory a la Carrie Bradshaw and top it all off with of-the-minute coloured sheers!
