The Comeback Post

23 Sep

Apologies all round are due as I haven’t blogged in a really long time. Technology is oh-so-fab when it works…

Anyway a major catch-up is needed! Whilst my laptop was in rehab I’ve missed London Fashion Week, a load of Miley Cyrus flavoured bullshit and the weird Kimye life-overs. BAD TIMES!  I’m back now, though, and ready to roll…

London Fashion Week Street Style [Via Cosmo]

Last Fashion Week I was all over it, loving the trends, the snaps, the blogs, the news…everything! The difference between then and now is the lack of interweb research and constant clicking on new links emerging as they were posted! SO I’ve skipped all the nitty gritty and gone straight to Cosmo for the Street Style LFW Guide. Let me tell you… I like what I see!

– Boyfriend Jeans: Forever searching for a Fashion Week-approved style that’s comfy and wage-friendly, I’m delighted to find boyfriend jeans back in the Autumn/Winter trends to keep!  I’ve found these three pairs for under £30! Which pair is your fave?

Zara Loose Fit Jeans £29.99 / Internacionale Midwash Jeans £22.49 / Punkyfish Ripped X-Boyfriend Jeans £25

– Perspex Bags: Ever filled your bag with such awesome crap that you wished everyone could see?! Well now you can coz it’s cool:

The Beckton Transparent Clutch by LYDC £22 / Large Klear Klutch £59.99 / Nasty Gal Eye Candy Satchel £31

– Cool Headphones: Who cares if general members of the public are staring at you with Hipster Envy?! You look awesome coz Cosmo told you so:

Beats Solo by Dr Dre £169.95/ ASOS Metallic Gold Headphones £18 / GOJI Tinchy Stryder Over-Ear Headphones £49.99

I forgot how much blogging makes me lust after stuff I didn’t think I even needed, let alone want. It’s good to be back. Tomorrow I discuss Miley Cyrus…if you’re a fan you may not want to hear what I have to say!

Top 5 Winter Trends For This Year’s Party Season

19 Dec

In two weeks, Christmas and New Years will be over and done with. In those two weeks, imagine how many parties, get togethers, dinners, lunches and soirees you’re going to need to attend!?

Judging by the shivering, happy ladies I serve every Saturday night at work (in a warm yet boring and very sober taxi office) this year everyone’s making more of an effort than just whacking on your average LBD.

So, what are the top trends for this year’s partay season?!

1) Party Shorts

party shorts

They’ve been celebrity favourites all year but sexy short shorts are back with a vengeance. If you, like me, are wondering how to tackle a Great British December evening in a pair of such grotesquely short shorts then have no fear! Whack on a pair (or three) of 100 denier tights and wear a plain blazer for extra warmth. Here are my top 3 party shorts available online or on the high street:

Motel for TopShop Harlequin Shorts £39

River Island Pink Sequin Knicker Shorts £12 / £30

Forever 21 Purple High-Waisted Shorts £16.75

2) Brocade

There’s always a tricky signature pattern to every season and at the moment it’s Brocade. I find it one of the hardest patterns to make sexy as it is such a tailored style BUT once you get it right you look like a style genius, just like Kim & Kate:

Here are my top 3 Brocade picks:

Lipsy for ASOS Brocade Prom Dress £21

Marks & Spencer Brocade Print Jacket £44

Miss Real for New Look Gold Brocade Dress £27.99

3) Dainty Details

From lace to sequins, mesh to embellishments this season it’s all about touching up your outfit with something beautifully delicate. You can bling up your whole outfit, like Jennifer Connelly, or add a subtle touch up, like Nicole Richie:

4) Coloured Kissers

From Khloe Kardashian and her sister Kendall Jenner stateside to our very own Azaelia Banks; purple lipstick is spending a lot of time in the spotlight and is a flattering shade for most skin tones:

Elf Cosmetic Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Bark £1.50

Barry M Lip Paint #156 £4.50

Dior Addict Lipstick in Insoumise £24

5) Morning-After Christmas Jumpers

Wine-induced headaches and copious amounts of nausea will feel 100% comfier if you’re grinning and bearing it all in a cute Christmas jumper favoured also by Fearne Cotton, Maria Fowler and Nicole Scherzinger:

See it as a hangover-cure investment! Here are my top 3:
