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

‘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!
