Trend & Save

December 5, 2012

The Sci-fi space mini trend. Although set to still be a hit in A/W extended from the summer of this year, but one that I personally think will never out run some of the other trends we’ll see this fall, it’s still a kooky little number for every cyberdog fan to sink their laser vision pupils into.
With Black Milk kicking off the star trek love affair this summer it’s now finally made its way subtly into this year’s shoe department of designer wear with vibrant greens and two-tone metallics being a key look for this trend. But don’t worry high street haulers CJG’s got you covered.
CJG aka Chloe Jade Green and Topshop’s top gal has returned with her new range of skyscraper shoes all with the now signature mint green louboutinesk heel, and this ones set to rival the designer devils as well as conquer the stud, snake and green tone trends to ensure you skip into 2013 on top.

Agyness Deyn for Dr.Martens

September 17, 2012

Our modern-day sixties poster girl is finally back from filming pusher and straight into another project that should have happened a longtime ago. Agyness Deyn the penultimate pin-up to the masculine meets feminine look has finally teamed up with her identical retail twin Dr.Martens to produce a powerful range pumped with masculine grunge shapes and punk palettes all laced with touches of feminine beauty, bang on the money to suit our teddy boy/vintage obsessed britain, and yet another triumph for the Dr.Martens portfolio of collaborations.

1) Dr.Martens Daisy T-shirt Dress: £35 2) Dr.Martens Heart Satchel in Acid Green: £140 3) Dr.Martens Floral Dress in Acid Green: £100 4) Dr.Martens Black and White Jumper: £115 5) Dr.Martens Heart Satchel in Pale Lilac: £140 6) Dr.Martens Aggy Creeper Shoe in Cherry Red: £130

Teaming faded check shirts, thigh high boots, acid greens and daisy prints the ‘Agyness Deyn’ for Dr.Martens collection is obviously not everyone’s cup of tea, but with its individuality and true retro roots this collection does own some originality and is not just another branded celebrity collection. Plus with a wide range of products from those truly daring ‘Cherry Red Aggy Creepers’ to the oh so pretty soon to be sell out pastel purple heart satchel there is sure to be at least a little corner for every fashion taste no matter how wild.
So if your keen for deyn or have never heard of this little multi-talented northern pixie before go have a browse as this collection is sure to blow all of those other celebrity fad collaBOREations out of the window this winter.

Pixie perfect

March 12, 2011

What are the first 2 things you think of when you think of Topshop? Did I hear you say expensive and addictive? Well think again because now there seems to be Topshop outlets popping up all around the country.
I took a trip to a little London hotspot (one of which I can’t remember as my friends were driving and spent most of my time on my phone) to have a little browse at the things they had to offer.
There wasn’t a lot to gawp at as a lot the stock was repeated across all the sizes but there were a few absolute gems if you rummaged deep enough. I ended up buying 2 Peter pan collar dresses, one which was jersey and green (RRP £28) and the other sheer black with an embellished collar (RRP £50), due to the fact it was buy one get one free all over the store I bought both these dresses for.. drum roll please… £30!! That’s £15 a dress! So I saved myself a small fortune with the embellished beauty!

Here I finished the green one off with a pair of teal DM’s and leopard rust headscarf and the embellished dress with the same headscarf, blue satchel and pixie boots.
Aren’t they adorable!
P.s Sorry I’ve put a square on my face.. I looked ill in the photos :(
