I’m REALLY struggling to log into WordPress right now. Not only that, but I’m REALLY REALLY struggling to copy my Tumblr posts over to WordPress. So, as a compromise, why not migrate with me over to Tumblr? My address is Judypink.tumblr.com.
I swear you will not be disappointed! ;o Life is a breeze!

… bit unsure about this one, I *think* I like it… but I reckon it more of a ‘need to see it in real life’ jobby. I definitely like the map print, thats pretty ingenious to be honest!
What do you reckon?
Map Print Smock Dress, £60. Topshop.
I thought I liked this dress when I saw it on the Topshop Unique runway last London Fashion Week back in September. Now the dress is online, I KNOW I love it and I WANT.
Topshop Unique and Boutique, for me, have been lacking somewhat recently… maybe it was just the curse of that awkward transitional period between Autumn/Winter and Spring? I certainly hope so!
Topshop Unique Hawaiian Print Dress, £120.
Topshop Boutique Mini Collar Smock, £70.
I think this is a great wardrobe staple, especially for SS10! The colourway is spot on, and well, you can never fail with a smock. A smock dress hides a multitude of sins (ahem) and this style is great to wear with tights and boots for colder days or wear with bare legs and wedges for summer! BOOM
I know I sound like a proper geek but I can’t help but look at other peoples websites with a critical eye now. Notably, Topshop.com have been caught out by my critical eye a lot recently. On Friday my friend Grace saw this COATIGAN on the Topshop website. Firstly, COATIGAN? Are you actually having my eyes out? Coatigan is not a real word. Secondly, by using this silly term in such a manner (see description) you’re hardly going to get your new word in the Oxford Dictionary are you?! DREADFUL Topshop, just DREADFUL.
Topshop.com to me are quite strange in their approach to product descriptions…the description attached to this product is not grammatically correct and is far too wordy. I myself would have written something like:
Wool blend, wrap over jacket with a cosy large collar and self-tie belt. This style has long sleeves, is hip length and features an all-over polar bear print
Do you think having a good description can persuade you to buy something online? Or do you not even bother to read into a product description?
I’d really like to hear your thoughts on this, considering I write product descriptions for a living.

This week saw the publication of the ‘top 100’ in Drapers magazine. The top 100 looks at the biggest and most influential people/brands/retailers in fashion over the past year. Very proudly I can say that Drapers voted AllSaints NUMBER ONE!
Since summer this year, AllSaints have launched a fully transactional US Site with a DC in New Jersey, meaning all US sales are now in dollars and are shipped within the US. Furthermore to the Atlantic-expansion, a concession began the store roll-out within Bloomingdales New York, followed by L.A Robertson and Miami is very close to opening. In the new year there will be a flagship in New York and Boston will follow. Additional language sites have made shopping even easier for French, Italian, German and Spanish speakers.
It’s all very exciting and very well deserved. Well done to all involved atAllSaints; long may it continue!
I have to say, when I first listened to Cheryl’s debut solo album, I wasn’t keen, I really wasn’t. I’ve listened to it all week now and LOVE IT. It’s definitely a grower. Just give it a chance if you felt the same. I mean, I’m a massive Girls Aloud fan so there was always going to be the painful comparison of Cheryl on her own without the girls…. it wasn’t ever going to be the same. But hell, it’s not half bad, not half bad at all! Alas, I degress, 3 Words is one of the songs I was finding myself humming and singing, badly. So it’s quite nice that this is Cheryl’s follow up single to Fight For This Love.
In the 3 Words video, Cheryl takes on three ‘personas’: her usual Hollywood glamour look with big big hair, a blunt brunette bob and unusually her final look is a gaga inspired platinum blonde style. It’s definitely fair to say Cheryl looks best with her brunette locks!
Unfortunately, as the video has only just last night had it’s world premiere, I’m unable to embed the youtube video as of yet, I will indeed  this post when the embed is available. Take a look at the screen shots below – video link at bottom of this post!
It’s not difficult to see where the stylist got Will.I.Am’s winterful look from for this new video – ALLSAINTS. You can buy all items on this ‘Outerwear’ AW09 campaign image on the AllSaints website – www.allsaints.com.
FOR NOW, YOU CAN VIEW THE NEW 3 WORDS VIDEO HERE FEATURING WILL.I.AM.
Let me know your thoughts!!
‘Jockey’ Chelsea Boots, Topshop, £55.
I have been lusting over these lovely little red shoes (to replace my very tired and worn out little red shoes no less) for about 2 1/2 months – IF NOT LONGER! But woe is me, they are NEVER available in a size 3. VERY ANNOYING.
I’ve actually never even seen them in stores, they probably sold out very quickly I imagine. If you ever see them in a local (London) store or online in UK 3 (EU 36) please do let me know as I will be all over them like fuzz on a peach! TA!

You are looking at an auction for an absolutely amazing Real Mink Fur Swing Coat.
This very on trend real Mink Fur Coat will be such an asset this coming Winter – it’s already started to get really cold! This coat was purchased from an Antique Vintage Clothing dealer in Islington, London. The coat is from the early 1960s and you can even see how it was constructed, which is very charming and characterful.
The coat itself can be worn open, or closed with the hook fastenings; it has two front pockets and a very cosy large collar.
Great for a variety of looks…Retro/Vintage/High Fashion!
This is a RARE and EXCLUSIVE find.
