The Work Dress

Monday, July 28th, 2008

oscar-de-la-renta-work-dress.jpgAnother Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2008 classic, the Oscar de la Renta Tweed sleeveless dress.

Sophisticated working clothes not only make you feel good about yourself when work is dull but also create a smart presentation and what’s more is they never go out of fashion. This black tweed sleeveless dress ticks all the right boxes and would look lovely on its own or with a cap sleeve blouse or tee underneathe. The slim fit works well with the hour glass figure and the hem falls just at the knee, conservative enough not to set your collegues off on a gossip marathon. Wear with tights for sassy style and warm legs in the winter.

Buy it now at Net a Porter costing £1,120.


Topshop Skinny's

Monday, July 28th, 2008

topshop-red-skinny-jeans.jpgTopshop keeps it colourful this fall with skinny jeans in coral, blue and green.

Since the indie, rock n roll trend of skinny jeans began with Kate Moss adorning a pair everywhere they have been unstoppable and are now a true classic in shops season after season. Topshop are one of the leading brands to sell skinny jeans and they keep it up with these colour ankle skinny jeans.

Comfortable, cool and flattering and easy to match with most tops, shoes and boots, invest in your colourful skinny’s at Topshop online for just £40.00 a pair.


The Bubble Hem Skirt

Monday, July 28th, 2008

pringle-bubble.jpgSimilar to the bell skirt I am also adoring the bubble hem. They are both a flattering fit and look oh so chic with a blouse and courts.

This Pringle 1815 Bubble hem skirt is made out of wool, has a large waist band, front patched pockets, ruched detailing and is designed by Pringle 1815. Although this skirt can ooze sophistication matched with the right blouse and courts it can also form part of a punky look matched with a rocky tee and some fish nets. The colour black can contrast with most other colours leaving you free to wear it as many times as you wish without looking the same.

Get yours at Net a Porter priced at just £150.


The Best Ball Gown

Monday, July 28th, 2008

vera-wang-silk-taffetta-dress.jpgAgain I am always a little early at planning the winter wardrobe but I insist on writing a piece on this dress because it is such a wondeful ball gown for the Christmas party season.

As seen on the runway this fall the Vera Wang Silk taffeta dress combines an asymmetrical neckline and full skirt to create a perfectly fitted and flattering gown. The added extra of a self tie bow provides a luxurious finish and splendid finish.

Ideal for any winter ball, if you can afford the dress invest in it at Net a Porter costing £1,275.


The Bell Skirt

Monday, July 28th, 2008

oscar-de-la-renta-tweed-bell-skirt.jpgThis season I have to express my desire for Oscar de la Renta’s collection. A wonderful mix of florals and tweed, the pre-fall collection is a wonderful taster of what is to follow later in the season.

This Oscar de la Renta Tweed bell skirt has a high waist line, a complimenting bell shape and has a reinforced stitched hem. Perfect for the autum weather and style, wear with tights and a smart and chic blouse.

A must-have item for work and play get your Oscar de la Renta skirt at Net-a-Porter costing £720.

The 'Two in One!'

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

Fendi Two in OneThe ‘two in one’ is the top buy for autumn; it’s a fantastic piece that gives the illusion of some stylish layering when really you have done nothing! Perfect for those that never really got the hang of the layering thing and for those city girls that don’t have time to faff around in the morning!

A great example of the ‘two in one’ is this Fendi Fendi Ruffle trim dress from net a porter. The heavy knit sweater works so well with the delicate ruffle trim slips, the ruffles immediately update the sweater and add texture. Wear with thick woolly tights and boots and you’re good to go!

Lady In Red

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

issa.jpgHow exciting? I have found the perfect little red dress! Well timed for Christmas this hot little number by Issa will be a sell out and has already acquired it’s own waiting list for sizes that are out of stock.

The cotton dress has a scoop neck, cap sleeves, a pin tuck bib on the front and pleat detailing at the waist band. A classic that will always come in handy season after season.

Self titled the Lucky dress, lets hope it brings you all lots of luck. Get yours at Net a Porter, currently for just £280.

Metallic In Miu Miu

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

The Miu Miu Metallic tweed coat is multicoloured and metallic providing both colour and fine detail with a smart and sophisticated fit. With three-quater length sleeves and a rounded collar this coat would compliment almost any winter outfit especially with a lovely pair of long gloves. I’m thinking wool dresses, pencil skirts with tights and skinny jeans.
