My New Favourite Design House: HALSTON HERITAGE.


Legendary American label Halston launched its hip diffusion line in 2009, and has since garnered a cult following amongst style-setters like Sarah Jessica Parker and Chloë Sevigny. The epitome of Studio 54 glamour, Halston Heritage evokes the brand’s timeless appeal reinventing archive pieces into effortlessly elegant silhouettes. Do like the original high-living Halstonettes, Bianca Jagger and Anjelica Huston and get retro-chic in asymmetric jersey dresses paired with oversized totes and clutches in silver, orange and cerulean.

Not Just Any Doorstep…


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So, at the beginning of March I had an email from the lovely Charlotte Ward. Charlotte is a writer and was working on a Sex And The City article for Cosmopolitan magazine. She said she had found the photograph of me sat on the infamous stoop of Carrie Bradshaw’s humble abode and would like to write a small article about how I came about Carrie’s stoop – what happened before her stoop and what has happened since.

I was more than happy to oblige of course; so we had a telephone interview and that was that… Until the JUNE 2010 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine hit shelves this week of course;o

You can read the ‘Not Just Any Doorstep…’ article, by Charlotte Ward from page 121 onwards (I’m on page 122).

ENJOY!

(PS – Hands up who can’t wait for SATC 2?!)

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!]

Fred Perry ‘Laurel’ Black Handbag.


-FRED PERRY ‘Laurel’ Black Vintage Style Handbag, £120.00

I love this vintage inspired Fred Perry womens handbag. It’s not often the brand produce ladies bags so this one is an absolute treat!

The leather bag features a golden metal frame, with snap top fastening, and pink cotton lining. The signature Fred Perry crest is also embossed to the front of the bag in addition. JUST BEAUTIFUL!

The measurements are as follows, 29 x 19 x 9.5cms

This bag can be exclusively purchased from http://www.coggles.com, and possibly in the Sarah Coggles stores!

‘Floral Frocks’ Collection by OASIS.


I came across this collection in a local magazine recently. Well, I saw the below, amazing, ‘Lily Lane’ dress and searched and searched and searched and searched for it’s stockist… and I couldn’t find it anywhere! I’d also been into a local Oasis store, spoke to the manager, who opened up her ‘style file’, and the dress wasn’t anywhere to be seen. So I rang several other local stores, and low and behold, nobody knew anything about the collection, or my beautiful ‘Lily Lane’ dress! I say mine, because one day soon it will be:D SO the search went on…until I finally came across an article outlining the collection.

Firstly, the collection is due to touch down in stores, and online, ‘mid summer’, so who knows when that will be! (If you have any idea, please do let me know!).

-“Lily Lane”, 50s Prom Dress, £80.00, by OASIS.

All of the frocks are vintage inspired but designed with a contemporary twist; with the original inspiration coming from the Museum of Fashion Bath Spa.

-“Rose Riley” Bandeau Dress, £80.00

-“Violet Valentine” Sun Dress, £UNKNOWN.

-“Poppy Parker Jones” Sun Dress, £UNKNOWN.

All the dresses are simply charming, and rather beautiful indeed. The latter 2 ofcourse, are fabulous for hiding lumps and bumps. I’m definitely going to be buying the first two:D One for James’ Graduation, and the other for a friends wedding in July – perfect.

Until the collection launches, I thought the below offering from Oasis at the moment was really pretty; so feminine and flattering; but too long for little old me!

-Floral Print Rose Corsage Dress, from Oasis, £80.00

My only concern is that Oasis’ dresses are creeping up in cost! Since when was a pretty frock£80? scandalous! I will however dip into my purse for the two aforementioned, they are really nice afterall!

Puffball Dress by BOUTIQUE @ Topshop.


-Puffball Dress by BOUTIQUE @ Topshop, £75.00

This dress is so unique, nothing less than should be expected from the team at BOUTIQUE though. I’d say it’s very much like ALL SAINTS meets Vivienne Westwood actually…

-VIVIENNE WESTWOOD Ruched Grey Skirt, was £164.99. NOW £82.50 (50% off at triads.co.uk)

Click Here to view the item at TRIADS’ website

Going back to the aforementioned TOPSHOP dress in question now. The dress is priced at £75.00 and is 100% SILK, therefore it is Dry Clean Only. The dress is available online at http://www.topshop.com and selected stores that stock the BOUTIQUE range.

FRIDAYS MUST HAVE: ‘Fantasy Horse’ T-Shirt by BOUTIQUE (@ Topshop).


FRIDAYS MUST HAVE:

Friday 18th April 2008.

-“Fantasy Horse” T Shirt by Boutique, £30.00

This t-shirt is amazing, and I’m mostly certainly going to be on the purchase when I visit London in 19 days time! Its so 80s its untrue. I think it’ll look fantastic teamed with super skinny black jeans and seriously killer patent heels, OR, if in my case your no taller than 5 ft, I could get away with wearing it with tights as a dress I reckons.

The ultra-cool ‘fantasy horse’ graphic is printed on 100% cotton and is machine washable. This beaut of a tshirt comes straight from the BOUTIQUE department at TOPSHOP, so this item is only available online (while stocks last ofcourse), and in very selected stores, such as OXFORD CIRCUS, London:)

IN ADDITION, to top it off, see the below dress, taken from http://www.net-a-porter.com where either Topshop have taken their inspiration (which I presume they have), or has MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA twoc’d the design from Topshop??

-‘Wild Horses’ Dress by Maison Martin Margiela, £695.00

OTHER TITLES: FRIDAYS MUST HAVE!
Romantic Frill Dress from TOPSHOP.
Tulip Skirt from TOPSHOP.

Vivienne Westwood “Crap” Tshirt.
Miss S Chain Detail Bag.

ALL SAINTS “Juliet” Tee.
