We need money for moving to London! So look at this!




CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE eBAY LISTING NOW!

James literally bought this XBOX 360 Arcade console for the latest and greatest Grand Theft Auto release. He also bought Grand Theft Auto seperately. He’s selling both together as a neat package on eBay. He has completed GTA and subsequently has no need for this XBOX now (we’re not console players, apart from the Wii, but that doesn’t count!) So yeah, its ACTUALLY brand new!!

So please please PLEASE help us in our funding for our big bad move to the big bad smoke!

Clearly this package is well sought after, still! So get you bidding guns at the ready! [Please pass on the details of this auction to your family/friends/related parties! Thanks!]

The Shoe Project.


I will endeavor through “The Shoe Project” posts reveal my love for the beauty and magic of SHOES!

Now I really never used to be a ‘shoe person’, not in the slightest and despite working on the Shoe Dept in Topshop for a living! But hey-ho, I’m now a full blown obsessive! I fear that my Sex and The City girls are half to blame for that! Damn you Carrie Bradshaw!

So with that in mind, I will be displaying the beautiful shoes I currently own and love, and the shoes I’m destined to totter around in, the shoes that are the fashion statement to an outfit, and the shoes ofcourse that will be on my infamous ‘to buy’ list; but I doubt I’ll ever be able to afford!

Up until, say a year ago, I wore my heels occassionally, mostly for a meal or a good nights worth of dancing.

Infact, once over I didn’t own a pair of heels, now thats all I own! And thank the lord for the invention! I’m a petite 5 foot something or other (ahem), and hey I need all the height I can get – my justification behind the recent purchase of my perfect Purple RIVA2’s 🙂

So onwards, and dare I say it… upwards!

Ms. Judy Pink.

I’m going to London… again!


Well, I’ve finally got a weeks-worth of freelance writing sorted in London, in May!

I booked my train tickets last night and can’t wait! It’s so exciting! This will be my first professional freelancing placement, and where better to begin than the most prestigious fashion website in the world!?!?!

And even better, I didn’t look for them – they came to me. It just proves that people actually do read your CV when you email it around, and they do actually pass your details onto people who they feel could benefit from your skills. I think I’ve been very lucky so far – but it also pays to stand out from the crowd!

Next Stop…

The Sunday Sun – 01.10.2006


Chic Boutique.
 

By Claire Briston, The Sunday Sun

 

This week we stray away from the high street and find ourselves revisiting the treasure trove that is Skirt.

Chic boutique
Left: Nanso jersey dress £78 Tatty Devine owl pendant £45 Amber butterfly pendant £37 Green leather clutch £50, all at Skirt White boots £59.99, Office.
Right: Black slit sleeve evening dress £75, by Modstrom Yellow eel skin shoulder bag £49, Tatty Devine cinderella necklace £45.

This boutique quaintly sits on the beautifully cobbled High Bridge Street in the heart of Newcastle’s cool city centre.

Skirt is quirky and sells unique and special items you’d never find anywhere else. Best of all, there are normally only one or two of each item, so you’ll never look like anyone else! Many are handmade . . . making your purchase feel extra special.

The autumn/winter collection has a very retro 1960’s feel that can be seen in the long, printed mac and jersey dresses we have featured.

The Ivana Helsinki knitted roll-neck top is slightly pricey at £100, but this is a buy you’ll cherish forever, while the top looks like it could have easily fallen from the catwalk.

Evening wear reflects a bygone era. The Nanso sage top and blue skirt are typical of the 1950s. However, it’s the 1940s-style £75 Modstrom black, slit-sleeve dress that steals the show.

Chic boutique
Left: Nanso sage jersey drawstring top £80 Nanso petrol blue skirt £55 Tatty DEvine octopus necklace £36 Navy leather bag £110.
Right: Nanso sage dress with crochet detail £78 Printed mac £105 Nanso large shopper £55 Tatty Devine brooch £30.

Skirt stock a variety of leather and eel-skin handmade handbags, as well as eel-skin clasp purses.

The majority of jewellery is by funky jewellery company, Tatty Devine. Locally, Skirt is the only place to purchase the radical Perspex pieces. Alternatively, you can purchase on-line at www.tattydevine.com.

All clothing this week is from Skirtcheck!!, unless otherwise stated.

The Sunday Sun – 24.09.2006


Animal Crackers!
 

By Claire Briston, The Sunday Sun

 

Laura Lee printed blouse £32, red leopard print T-shirt £16, black shorts £25, black tights £6, necklace £18, all Topshop.

We take a walk on the wild side with animal print this week as we dash back to the high street.

It’s easy to go over the top with animal prints and some people badly replicate that “Bette Lynch” look. So we’ve teamed numerous items together to give a more stylish take on the trend.

Black leggings £18, FCUK. Knit dress £40, Oasis. Gold cardigan £35, Warehouse. Print knit top £30, Red. Reptile skin belt £15, Necklace £12, all at Topshop.

If animal print seems a little daunting at first try something simple like the knit dress from Oasis with a faded print top underneath like the Topshop one pictured.

Reptile skin and animal print belts and accessories are a good way to ease you into the trend too.

There are plenty of belts available in stores to choose from, so whether you opt for the thick red reptile skin belt or the thinner replica zebra skin belt you are bound to stop people in their tracks.

Light Baxter jeans £40, Topshop. Sleeveless polo neck £25, Warehouse. Leopard print coat £95, reptile skin belt £25, brooch £7, ring £12, reptile skin bag £25, all Oasis.

Purses, bags and especially ballet pumps are a step in the right direction also. Wearing a simple plain outfit with a splash of leopard print to the feet just lifts the look and seams together effortlessly. The reptile print Warehouse clutch bags look really swanky, great for a special engagement.

For so long leopard print has been tarnished as “tacky”, however, Laura Lee’s take on the print looks wonderfully flattering. The dress is ultra feminine and sports Laura’s distinctive embroidery, which gives the dress a unique alternative style. Laura Lee’s leopard print autumn collection was designed exclusively for Topshop . . . however the range is limited edition so get to your local store ASAP!

Left-right: Skinny leg trousers £38, orange cardigan £32, charm necklace £14, all Oasis. Laura Lee dress £45, Topshop. Teal belt £14, Warehouse; Tweed pinafore £55, black sleeveless roll neck £25, Warehouse. Leopard print cardigan £35, black tights £6, both Topshop; Leopard print sleeveless top £30. Plum footless tights £6, both Warehouse. Black pencil skirt £40, Oasis. Laura Lee blouse £32. Purple belt £20, both Topshop.

The Oasis leopard print coat is this season’s must have. The jacket is oh so stylish (plus very warm!) and looks great with slim cut jeans and a roll neck jumper underneath. So be brave and go wild this season with a little touch of animal magic!
