The Jolly Rancher Bikini

June 1st, 2008

shay-todd-jolly-rancher.jpgWith the summer season well on its way it’s the best time to invest in the essentials like bikinis and with so many available its best to way up the options.

Shay Todd has some fantastic options and this bright coloured tutti-fruity number is fabulous. It successfully mixes three of the best summer colours with a rebellious miss match top and bottom. The green and yellow work wonders with a tan and provide plenty of choice when accessorizing and covering up and the cute bright pink resin link adds a cute touch. Think green kaftans, yellow sandals and optional pink accessories.

The Shay Todd Jolly rancher bikini is available at Net-A-Porter online costing £105, so get it before it goes.

I adore these green straight legged jeans, perfect for summer they bring colour and warmth for those not so sunny days. Match them with red or white top, heels and clutch and your good for an evening then for the day match with some cute flats or sandals in similar colours.

These green Acne jeans are available at Browns Fashion online costing £150.

Ice Royalty

June 1st, 2008

marchesa.jpgThe most stunningly beautiful dress Marchesa has created in my opinion is here and I am in complete awe. With an icy and sparkly look this dress is just amazing and so made for royalty.

Like many this is the sort of dress I dream of wearing and owning, like something out of Enchanted. The strapless dove silk blend dress combines beading, lace and delicate patterning in such a perfectly elegant way. With a boned bodice and asymmetric finish it is ideal for both slim and curvaceous women. Expect to see it on many of the beautiful Hollywood A-listers.

If you can afford it invest in it, the Marchesa Strapless embroidered dress is £3,640 and available at Net-A-Porter.

Kate Moss High Summer Collection 2008

June 1st, 2008

ku.jpgThe new and yet again, highly anticipated brand new collection of clothes designed by Kate Moss arrived last week and yet again they are a collection of beauties.

I must say I love Kate Moss’s style and this season I’m really starting to see more of her own style complete with a mixture of bohemian floral prints and plain yet elegant pieces. I especially love the dresses, one in particular which I have seen Kate adjust and model around London. The dress in question is the Stripe 50’s dress. The stylish summer dress has stripe detailing all over with a ruched bust and wide waist band. Kate customised hers by cutting the hem off giving it a cutting edge style but the decision is yours on how you want to wear it.

Get yours at Topshop online now and take a peak at her full collection.

Jacobs Colour Clash Clutch!

June 1st, 2008

Statement ClutchClutches are BIGGER than ever this season (in more ways than one!) The colossal clutch is really dominating the high street and is going down a storm!

The clutch is no longer just for evening wear; the larger clutch means they’re becoming more practical for day wear, which is fab if you’re a clutch gal like myself!

In my search for the perfect oversized clutch, I headed straight for Marc Jacobs vibrant range of bags. Within this collection I found this lilac and burnt orange quilted colossal clutch. I was blown away with the colour combination of this bag as I must admit the two colours almost clash and compliment each other at the same time, which I found strangely attractive.

The gold hardware is the perfect finishing on this clutch that oozes glamour, to buy your very own Marc Jacobs Quilted oversize pouchette head to Net-a-porter, this clutch costs a colossal £695!

Key piece: The Kaftan

June 1st, 2008

Warehouse KaftanThe Beachcomber kaftan is just what I have been looking for! A kaftan that lets face it is far too good for the beach but would be perfect for an evening over skinny jeans to give that holiday vibe!

This has to be the prettiest kaftan I have seen this summer, the intricate detail around the hemlines is so stunning and the simple but feminine shape is extremely complimentary of the beautiful detail that embellishes this kaftan. The colour; cream is perfect to set off a golden tan and the diamante embellishments will make you and your tan sparkle from day to night.

If you have also fallen in love with this kaftan, you’ll be pleased to know you can buy it online from Warehouse for a reasonable £55!

Ombre at its Best!

June 1st, 2008

Matthew Williamson Ombre DressI remember seeing this ombre print design floating down the catwalk and was immediately in awe of the intensity of the print. To my delight Net-a-porter is now selling this stunning Matthew Williamson Flame edge silk tank dress on their site for an expensive but justifiable £595!

The tie dye technique has really come into its own this season but I have to say I think Matthew Williamson has really owned this technique and this dress is a true reflection of the ombre tie dye at its best! The blend of black into neon pink is a really stunning statement and the silk crinkle fabric is the perfect choice for such a dazzling print! Teamed with a pair of black towering heels and a colossal clutch, this dress is sure to be a head turner!

Aqua Marine Accessories!

June 1st, 2008

Aqua Marine Ring from TopshopI am a sucker for turquoise accessories this year and when I saw this ring it was love at first sight! I don’t believe in spending a fortune on accessories as in a couple of months trends will change and no doubt so will my taste, so this ring seems like the perfect buy!

For a very reasonable £12 it would be rude not to buy such a great accessory! It is a key statement ring, the large oval acrylic stone is complimented by beautiful aqua marine rhinestones, which are very pretty against the antique gold effect ring.

If you have an obsession with turquoise this summer too, be sure to check the great range of turquoise accessories from Topshop.

The new Mulberry shape: 'Hobo'

June 1st, 2008

Mulberry “Hobo”The new ‘Hobo’ bag from Mulberry has all the makings of a classic. The simple rectangular shape oozes sophistication and is practical too. As shoulder bags are making a comeback, the Hobo is certainly helping to fuel this movement with its alluring shoulder strap design.

The gold hardware makes this bag, I particularly love the gold twist lock fastenings on the front pouch, and it really compliments the marine polished buffalo leather, which is a fab colour.

The bag costs £650, which I think is a reasonable price to pay for a classic Mulberry, if you think so too you may want to check out net a porter for the different colour alternatives of the new ‘Hobo’ bag.
