Bring on the boohoo Boutique collection

boohoo boutique spike shoes thumbnailIf you’re looking for something statement (but affordable) for the party season, look no further than boohoo’s brand new Boutique collection.

Swanky dinners in London’s trendy Hoxton aren’t something I go to everyday, so I jumped at the chance to join a host of fashion bloggers at the launch of boohoo’s gorgeous Boutique Collection. In a private room at the uber-smart Hoxton Bar & Grill I sipped strawberry cocktails and ate an indulgent three course supper (we’re talking scallops and chorizo, Chateaubriand and chocolate brownie bites with hot chocolate sauce) alongside the likes of The Very Simon G, Boy Meets Fashion and Alex Loves.

Ted Baker’s Survival Of The Fittest AW12 Collection

Ted Baker's AW12 Collection Catwalk ShowThe summer may be slipping away, but in terms of fashion there is nothing more exciting than having a sneak peek at what the autumn/winter high street has to offer. Jo (Style Compare’s head of fashion) and I were invited to Ted Baker’s AW12 fashion preview, and we couldn’t wait to catch a glimpse of what Ted has in store for next season.

The theme for the new collection is ‘Survival of the Fittest’ and although the catwalk backdrop was woodland prints lit with soft green and blue tones, there were no muted winter colours and trends on show when the models took centre stage.

In spite of the spring sunshine outside, we couldn’t resist an advance peep at the highly anticipated autumn/winter collection.

The collection was shown at the Reiss building in central London…

Bang Bang! Pistol Panties launch pop-up shop at Selfridges

Pistol Panties Launch at SelfridgesWhen it comes to swimwear, I have a real soft spot for 50s-style designs; that’s probably why Pistol Panties appeals to me so much. Designed to make you feel “like a superstar”, this range is not for the faint-hearted; think bold vintage florals, plunging necklines and itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikinis.

The Pistol Panties brand is the brainchild of…
