ALLSAINTS Ditzy Floral Print…


I noticed that a lot of you were getting to my blog and searching for ‘floral print’, ‘ditzy floral print’, ‘flower print’ etc etc so I thought I’d share my favourite ditzy floral print – enter the ALLSAINTS Ditzy Floral Print.

This print has already been instores and online for a while now…but it is my favourite and probably the best I’ve seen, BARRING LIBERTY PRINTS ofcourse ;o The print itself is very tiny ditzy flowers with a vintage laundered overwash that was inspired by a Japanese Vintage print; signature itself to AllSaints.

Fashion icon, Sienna Miller, was seen wearing the AllSaints Ditzy Ezra Dress to a BFI event which catapulted the print into the public sphere.

Kate Moss for TOPSHOP S/S 09.


Well, this is my final Kate Moss for Topshop collection and I have to say it’s probably the busiest one I’ve ever launched! The product was ‘ok’. The Liberty London prints being the high light of course, but the rest of the collection seemed more A/W than S/S! There is a distinct lack of summery dresses and ‘holiday-gear’. But we were assured that there will be more summery clothes and bikini’s and the like for the High Summer launch!

Firstly, I have to point out the graphics for this launch. Whilst, I absolutely love the graphics, there is some computer ‘distortion’ which caused no end of confusion, and to be honest, a lack in sales of some items as they appeared different colours in the graphics to real life.

Liberty London Poppy Print Bandeau Dress, £65.00


As you can see between the graphic and the actual dress, there is a massive colour difference. Many people were put off by how blue this dress was… which is massively unfortunate. I actually really love this dress; but be aware, they do come up very small, might be wiser to go a size larger when purchasing. This poppy print was the most youthful of the Liberty prints, it also comes in a camisole. The other two Liberty prints are below, the one on the left is the Kate Nouveau print which was also splashed over a bag (£55) and waistcoat and camisole (£35). The beautiful whimsical print on the right is the Lilabell Print which is my personal favourite. The print was delicately scattered onto a 70s inspired tunic dress (£85), camisole (£40) and of course, the star-piece, the £280 maxi dress with supreme frill detail. The Lilabell print being the most expensive of all the fabrics in the collection.

Lace Body Suit, £30.00.


The Liberty Print items are all Limited Edition so if your local store holds these items, you’ll be best off snapping a piece up! They’ll be collectors items in years to come! PLUS super investment pieces for your wardrobe to boot! ;o

One Week Today…


In one week today I’ll be having an early night in preparation of my very first day at All Saints Head Office!

So the final countdown begins!

VERY VERY much looking forward to this time next week; especially after the awful weekend I had at Topshop! FAR FAR too busy! And explain to me why customers feel the need to be absolute horrors?! Constantly?! I could be more descriptive there; but to tell the truth, I daren’t because I’ll end up getting beyond angry! And its just not worth it;o

At least I have the pleasure of knowing I won’t be dealing with it much longer – just 5 shifts longer! woo!

In other news… my final KATE MOSS for TOPSHOP launch is this Thursday 2nd April. Lot’s of lovely pieces, including a collaboration with the amazing Liberty.
