Spring Trends in the Spotlight

The sun is here! The weather is warmer and the rain, for now, has gone. This means one thing – a new bright sparkly Spring wardrobe.  Here we take a look at one of the big trends for Spring.

Pastels
Predicted to be the trend with the most impact this season, pastels are back and we are so pleased. Everyone will have a pastel hue to suit, and with so many garments readily available in this color spectrum, we can all rock this ice cream tinged dream.

Here is my top choice of pastel pieces…….

Panic Buy???

Hey fashionistas, how are your festive preparations coming along?

I have spent the past week dashing through the shops on a mission to buy presents, decorations, tableware, crackers and a rude gift amounting to no more than £2.50 (don’t you just love secret santa)

Is it complete? Am I settled in front of an open fire sipping baileys, eating yule log and watching Richard Curtis movies? NOT!

I fear the trouble with shopping is that it is just too distracting. How can I possibly find presents for people when the shoe section is enticing me, as are the pre-Christmas discounts in most stores. Then there is coffee, lunch, a make-up trial at MAC and a neck massage – yes really, on the ground floor.

So, it is with the afore mentioned Baileys and open fire that I write this blog entry and purchase afore mentioned non-purchased Christmas presents online. Along with a number of others apparently, as forecasts* predict that December’s online sales will amount to 5 billion pounds.

So far,  I have ordered for the husband, mother-in-law, kid, brother and next door neighbour but one. All will be gift wrapped and delivered no later than Wednesday at 4.41pm –  and not one impulse purchase has been made for yours truly.

Here is my pick of the best online, fashion minded Christmas gifts, for him, her, them and us!

Embellished

With but a week or so to go until the final month of the year, we are swiftly moving into the ‘party season’.

Whilst I will be looking at a number of festive party styles in the next couple of weeks, I thought I would get us started with a bit of embellishment. If there is one season that requires heaps of sparkly embellishment, be it for brunch, dinner or office party, it is the ‘party season’.

VICTORIA BECKHAM

What you ask – her shoes, sunglasses, jetset life, husband….?

Well I say, all of the above, but what I am totally obsessed with is her fashion label. A design house that has stunned the fashion pack in the past few years, and has given many of the world’s most elite fashion designers a run for their money. Victoria Beckham has become one of the world’s most influential style guru’s both on and off of the catwalk.

Here is some of the Victoria Beckham collection featuring clean, minimalist and classic pieces that will last for seasons.
