Pretty Peasant Tops For Spring

Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

It’s no seceret that I always try to sneak in some type of boho touch when it coms to my style, but my ultimate weakness is a pretty peasant top.  They’re SO comfy and they give any outfit an effortless retro feel.   Tip:  This spring florals and pops of color are huge.  Pick tops that have one or the other (not both) and pick smaller patterns. Peasant tops are loose and flowing; and big patterns can overwhelm the look.  The beauty of a peasant top is in its simplicity, so keep jewelry to a minimum.  These tops are best when paired with streamlined bottoms like skinny jeans, leggings or my fave cropped jeans (especially a distressed pair).

Top Five Christmas Party Dresses

November 23, 2011 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

Have you spent all your time planning what to buy your nearest and dearest and how best to impress the in-laws this Christmas, completely forgetting about yourself? Don’t worry; help is on hand. We’ve picked out five of the best Christmas party dresses from House of Fraser so you don’t have to waste time hunting around yourself; now you can focus on primping that turkey and wrapping your truly inspired Christmas gifts and you can do it all in style.

Karen Millen Hard Metallic Jacquard Dress

Every woman needs an LDB in her wardrobe and this one from Karen Millen is a real winner. Made from 100% silk with lace overlay, this stunning cocktail dress not only ticks all the boxes for winter 2011/12, but will last through the ages as its classic shift shape is timeless. This foiled lace and lurex panelled dress has a dramatic and elegant draped Georgette shoulder strap and fitted but not clingy shape. This statement dress needs little in the way of accessories. A pair of gold or silver metallic platforms should be quite enough.

Therapy All Over Sequin Dress

Shimmering, shining metallic dresses are the hottest styles on the high street this Christmas. This bold, golden dress from Therapy will help you stand out from all those fairy lights and baubles. It has a loose sixties style shape, with sleeves to the elbow and rounded neckline. Its casual shape is perfectly contrasted with the statement making material covered in thousands of golden sequins.

Cutie Mesh Waist Dress

This show stopping red dress from Cutie is unbelievably sexy. Its bodycon shape and mesh sections above and below the bust will make you the centre of attention. This dress isn’t for the wallflowers among you as it is figure hugging and leaves little to the imagination, but as a party dress, this is a real winner.

BIBA Asymmetric One Shoulder Maxi Dress

Maxis aren’t just for summer. This stunning dress from BIBA proves maxis are year-round essentials. This beautiful blue metallic dress is a mixture of classic Hollywood glamour and seventies disco fever. The ruched and draped detailing add interest and help to flatter the silhouette whilst the one-shoulder strap keeps it modern and fresh.

Warehouse Colourblock Soft Slouchy Dress

Reminiscent of the 1940s skirt and blouse combinations, this two-tone dress from Warehouse is relaxed yet sexy. It looks like two separates, but the creamy, slight rouched one-shoulder top and black tulip skirt are actually one dress. It’s simple, sassy and perfect for a night out with the girls.

Celebrity Redo: Get Victoria Beckham’s Look for Under $100!

April 16, 2009 by  
Filed under Celebrity Redo

I love it when Victoria Beckham dresses down.  To me, she looks just as chic even without the expensive designer outfits.   These baggy boyfriend jeans are the perfect example (I wonder if they’re David’s?).   I decided to break down her outfit in two ways: one with the strapless top and the other without for those of you who deplore going strapless (you’ll notice that for this option I swapped out the strapless top with a spaghetti strap tank and cropped jacket, but kept the rest of her ruggedly chic look intact.  Each outfit is under $100. Hope you like it!
