I’ve had a bit of a result this week while shopping online. I discovered a fabulous fashion store that combines the convenience of online shopping with low low high street prices, sounds too good to be true doesn’t it?

Rent it, love it, return it!

No, I’m not suggesting some dodgy take-your-dress-back-to-the-shop-after-wearing-it scheme! I’m taking about dress hire. Remember in the Sex and The City Movie when Carrie’s PA Louise has the best designer handbags on her arm and an assistant’s wage in her purse, baffling Carrie into asking how she has got hold of her waiting-list-only arm candy? Louise proudly tells […]

Thrifty fashion – an emerald dress

We all know that emerald is Pantone’s colour of the year for 2013 (here’s my blog post about it from January) and although we are 3/4 of the way through the year, this doesn’t mean that the colour is any less on trend. In fact, it’s really coming into its own for the festive season […]

Thrifty fashion ~ Making denim look girly for summer

I don’t know about you, but I love denim for creating a cool, casual look – everyone has their favourite pair of jeans or denim jacket, but summer is a hard time of year to wear denim. Although it’s always comfy and practical (not forgetting always on trend!) it’s sometimes a little too thick or bulky to […]

Fashion trendspotting ~ My favourite floral fashion for summer

I’ve gone absolutely potty over florals this summer. I don’t know whether it’s because the weather is so lovely at the moment, but I’m feeling all happy and want to wear colourful clothes all the time (I’m wearing a floral top as I’m writing this, and I’m not kidding!). As you know I’ve been doing some thrifty […]

Tuesday Shoesday – Finding the right shoes to go with THAT dress

It’s difficult. And I’m sure you’ve all been through it at some point. Yes, choosing a dress for a special occasion can be tough, but that’s nothing compared to finding the right shoes to wear with it.

Famous Tutus – Katy Perry’s ‘Part of Me’ red-carpet outfit
