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!]

and so it begins…



This Wednesday (7th) I shall be getting a stupidly early train to Kings Cross to embark on my very first London working experience, EEEEK. EEEEK is all I can actually say. I’m nervous. I’m apprehensive. I’m thoroughly excited!

I can’t really let too much slip, not at the moment, but basically I’m going to be doing some freelance writing, Wed 7th-Mon 12th. I’m going to be located at Oxford Circus and lapping up the fashion of our good ol’ Capital City. Fingers crossed this week worth stint will lead onto more work and push me forward for more opportunities!!! That would be perfect… and especially so for our big move this summer to the big smoke aswell!

I shall indeed have LOTS AND LOTS to tell upon my return next week, but for now, wish me luck!

Ms. Judy Pink.

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

The Shoe Project: “GRACE” Premium Shoes, By TOPSHOP.


-“GRACE” Premium Shoes by TOPSHOP, £95.00

I purchased these shoes from the TOPSHOP.com website a year gone Christmas; I’d barely worn them with them being 100% Leather, and the fact I WAS more like a size 4, and bought a size 3 (I impulse bought!) I have to be so so careful I don’t scrape the leather on these shoes, especially with them being white, but the leather is just SO soft, its mad. You definitely get what you pay for.

These days I’m more like a size 2 1/2 than even a size 3! So as it goes, these shoes are slightly too big for me now; but with a party feet gel pad in, they’re more comfortable and fit me like a glove. I adore them. They’re so so pretty and look really vintage-y. The cone heel is beautiful, really comfortable and very feminine.
I actually wore them to my London interview – I bet thats what swung the vote!

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

picture-12.png

-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.

Ms. Judy Pink.

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:)
