FRIDAYS MUST HAVE: ALL SAINTS “Juliet” Tee.


FRIDAYS MUST HAVE:

Friday 11th April 2008.

“JULIET” Tee, by ALL SAINTS, £40.00

This tshirt has to be my favourite from ALL SAINTS so far… The vintagey punk graphic print to the front is of Debbie Harry, mirrored, with some graffiti detailing to the sides; such as “Saturday 13th May” and “£.250”.

The tee is plain on the back… and is made from simple white cotton; with a low scooped neckline, very all saints chic. I’m going to purchase this next week, and probably just wear it tucked into one of my tulip skirts, or possibly with skinny jeans and my killer RIVA2’s!

The t-shirt is available online at ALLSTAINTS.com and in the majorty of stores.

FRIDAYS MUST HAVE: Animal Chain Detail Handbag.


FRIDAYS MUST HAVE:

Friday 4th April 2008.

Black Chain Strap Bag by Miss Selfridge, £20.00.

This animal texture, cross body, chain detail bag, is very similar to the 2.55 handbags made famous by the one and only Coco herself. I’ve personally been on a quest to find a bag EXACTLY like this for a very long time; one that doesn’t resemble a Primark cast off, or fake Chanel for that matter.

This weeks Friday Must Have is perfect for keeping your hands free at gigs and those up and coming summer festivals! I would be, and will be, seen wearing it around town shopping for yet more designer inspired bargains ofcourse!

The bag isn’t badly priced at £20.00 and can be found in your local Miss Selfridge store, or alternatively, online at http://www.missselfridge.com

The Shoe Project: “BITTEN” Wedges, By Sarah Jessica Parker.


-“BITTEN”, by Sarah Jessica Parker, Wedges, $10.

I bought these wedges as an impulse by aswell, from STEVE & BARRY’s, New York City, June 2007. I was completely baffled by the sizes and the launch was massive! Mrs SJP was signing at the event aswell so there was a horrendous amount of press and queues like you’ve never witnessed in your life before!

The wedges were an amazing $10! I really expected the prices to be sky-high, but like the slogan t-shirts said “Fashion is not a luxury”, EXCEPT, I know it is, YOU know it is, and hell, SHE knows its is;o

BUT STILL, I very much enjoyed her low budget fashion range. It’s wearable and beyond affordable. What is there to criticise?

GOLD: Giles Deacon for New Look, SS ’08.


I’ve selected a few of the more favorable items for the most recent collection… all of which I’ve seen online, and not a single one in my local store. I don’t think the last few collections sold well, and so with the launch last week (which coincided with the Kate Moss for TOPSHOP launch incidently…) my local New Look store in Eldon Sq got the collection again, except all the clothes look bedraggled, and in a word, ‘odd’. The quality isn’t there as it was with the very first collection (from which I purchased 2 dresses). There wasn’t an awful lot on offer either, and I suspect they head office just sent the ‘cheaper’ items to the store, thinking those were the items that would sell, but with a whole vera stand, fully stocked, obviously this wasn’t the case.

-GOLD by Giles, Chain detail vintage style scarf, £15.00

-GOLD by Giles, Grey Batwing Jumper, £18.00

-GOLD by Giles, Tonal Tiered Dress, £60.00

My favourite piece has to be the above pink dress. Its absolutely amazing, and I think it looks so much more expensive than it is; a real fashion statement. This time around however, there are no shoes I’m fond of, no bags, no accessories. Quite the disappointment! More so, that none of the items are available in my aforementioned store! Talk about frustration!

Also, I think I should probably add about the change of model for the campaign. Agyness Deyn, muse and model to Giles Deacon, replaces Drew Barrymore as the face of GOLD. There has been quite the hoo-har over the change of face, and indeed body; mostly due to the fact Giles chose Drew Barrymore on the basis of her being curvy, and could fill out the clothing range like a ‘normal’ female… a ‘normal’ female purchasing from the highstreet. And there lies our debacle. Aggy, is not ‘normal’, shes nearly 6 ft’ and has a 26″ (or probably smaller!) waist. While the clothes hang nicely on her frame, she certainly is not the shape of a New Look shopper to say the least! In saying that I suppose you could say, ‘well, kate moss isn’t the best person to use in the promotion of her own clothing line at TOPSHOP!’, except, she is! She’s more curvy than Aggy, and well, she genuinely wears her own range, aswell as TOPSHOPs own buy range… and yes it’s true, we do get a lot of Kate Moss-esque females through our doors, buying our gear… this can hardly be said for New Look. AND might I add, this is not me defending a size zero woman in any shape or form rofl. I’m merely suggesting that Aggy does not fit the ‘stereotype’ of a New Looker. Do not blast me for that. Thank you!

For now, I’ll be sticking to the Giles label alone.

The Shoe Project: “SARAH” Shoes by TOPSHOP, RE-ISSUED!


-“SARAH” Shoes by TOPSHOP, in Offwhite, £60.00

Yes it is true, the SARAH shoes are back online, that doesn’t mean to say they’ll be available in stores however, it might just be that the men at the TOPSHOP.com warehouse found some on the back shelves and their back in stock online! These things ACTUALLY happen! I’d definitely snap them up before they sell out, they sold out in my store within 2 days. They were that much in demand! But nevertheless, do keep checking back to your store to see if they’ve had an odd delivery of them. But do be aware we don’t know what stock we’re getting in advance, we literally know the night before when we print off the delivery note to make space in our stockrooms for the impending delivery the next morning.

In addition, the girls on the Hollyoaks TV Advert wear these shoes, in the offwhite (above) as opposed to the NUDE version that were in stores… so they’ve definitely had some exposure via Channel 4 anyway.

Have a gander at the below promo for the Channel 4 show, you’ll probably recognise all the shoes, as Shoes By TOPSHOP:)
