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?!)

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!]

Dorothy Perkins Floral Tea Dress.



-Black Ditsy Floral Print Teadress, £35.

I think this tea dress is a lovely shape, really flattering to all figures. And what a bargain price too! £35.00 is great, doesn’t blow the budget; and this dress is machine washable:)

Available online at http://www.dorothyperkins.com, and instores.

‘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!

Kate Moss for TOPSHOP: The Launch, Today, Tuesday 18th March.


Since my previous post on the range, Here , the range has launched….

I didn’t manage to have a look at the range, DESPITE being at work all day today – but I have to say, its realllly disappointing from looking at the TOPSHOP.com website.

The preview image showed the ‘Top Five’ items…

I really liked the look of the embroidered dress, 2nd left. But the dress looks really shapeless and much whiter on the website. I would have preferred it to look like the above image really, it looks much more vintage-y and quirky. The dress below looks rather like a dress from H&M to be honest, and with that in mind, theres no justification for the £60.00 pricetag.

-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP Embroidered Tunic Dress, £60.00.
As far as I’m aware this tunic dress didn’t even come into stores this morning;I have a feeling it’s going to be a repeat of the Spotty One-Shoulder Dress from the very first collection… where we only got a few sizes in each colour, and they leapt from the shopfloor as fast as they came in, leaving everyone sitting on eBay for hours on end!

-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP, Daisy Print Tea Dress, £60.00

As for this dress, as always, it looks wonderful on Kate, and especially so in Ibizan sunshine! But as before, it looks cheap and not work 60notes. Infact, I’d go as far as to liken it to Primark!

-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP, Yellow 50s Style Dress, £45.00.

-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP, Aqua 50s Style Dress, £45.00

Now this dress I REALLY like and hope its in work tomorrow still. I’m torn between the Aqua and the Yellow though! Which to go for! They’re both lovely and perfect for a Summer Wedding I’m attending! I can’t decide at all, I don’t have a single dress thats Yellow, or Aqua, so I need an informed decision I think…

-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP, “IBIZA” Sandal, £25.00

-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP, “IBIZA” Sandal, £25.00

These sandals are really good value for £25.00, they’re 100% leather and will go with everything. At least theyre on par with Topshop anyway.

-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP, ‘Top Hat Tee’, £20.00


-Kate Moss for TOPSHOP, Spotty Bandeau Dress, £150.00

Yes you read right, £150.00 for the above dress! I don’t understand why, apart from it probably being from her Limited Collection (around 250 pieces are made and that is it… each piece is numbered). But STILL. I can guarantee that ASOS.com will have a copy in the next couple of weeks….

I’m quite attracted to this print, for some reason… I’d probably wear this t-shirt if not for the low cut neck line, I much prefer round higher collars.

I shall indeed have a good look at the collection tomorrow in ‘real life’ and hopefully my doubts will be reversed! But as a customer be aware you are limited to purchases through the range; one item, in one size, from each category. In other words, you can only get one dress for example, in one size; this is to reduce the amount of items ending up on eBay for instance, and to be fair to all customers, considering the limited amount of sizes available in stores.

The Shoe Project: “James” Double Buckle Shoes by TOPSHOP.


-“JAMES”, Double Buckle Heel, (Black), by TOPSHOP, £55.00.

-“JAMES”, Double Buckle Heel, (Tan), by TOPSHOP, £55.00.

*Also available in NAVY.*

I don’t understand why these shoes aren’t selling in my store. I think I’ve sold literally 2 pairs since they arrived a few weeks ago. The heel height is perfect and they look so pretty with dresses and along with jeans. Theyre perfect for wearing for a dinner-date, going dancing, or even just wandering around the shops! So please buy these lovely shoes…. and unusually, they have a male name! (TOPSHOP shoes always take female names/object names, ie, Lollipop or Shuffle). Coincidently, my beautiful fiance is called James, I think thats why I’m so connected….
