Celeb's off duty...

13:41 Posted by Jessica 24 comments
How can celebrities dress up in glamorous gowns and designer shoes all the time? They don't. Aha no siree, here are a few of the stars caught in their casual clobber...

Alexa Chung looks great here, she just works those coloured jeans.

Whitney Port  rocks double denim while wearing some cute clogs.

Rachel Bilson keep's it simple but really rocks her studded bag.

Eliza Doolittle sticks it to her Quirky style, loving the short short's and the bright pink's!

Kelly Osbourne looks surprisingly retro here, loving the red lips!

Olivia Paleremo sticks to black and white, she looks casual, sophisticated! 

Agyness Deyn looks great in her nautical stripes.

Love, love, love Fearne Cottons dress and wedges!

Keria Knightley... her coat is so cute!

I love Elle Macpherson's jeans and jacket.

Mary Kate Olsen looks lovely here.

Reach for the stars...

10:35 Posted by Jessica 11 comments
I recently stumbled across this article on Glamourmagazine.co.uk although it isn't the most detailed article in the world, it is inspiring!

Reading magazines online is my new thing, so expect many more articles like this one! 

How To Make It In Fashion by the Editor of VOGUE.com

'So you think you can cut it in the world's most fabulous and ferocious industry? Research ladies, before you climb into those heels and pledge your allegiance to the fashion gods. The fashion desk speaks to the Editor of VOGUE.com and shares wise words on how to get to the top.'

'After a six month placement as the editorial assistant of Vogue magazine, Dolly Jones successfully landed the writer job on Vogue.com in 2000. Five years later she was named Editor, so suffice to say that her career tips are ones worth noting down.'
Dolly's Career DO's:
DO Always be honest - don't let people think you know something when you don't. They'd always much rather you asked than pretended to know and then got it wrong.
DO Be ambitious - if your ideas don't work the first time there is generally another way. Don't give up.
DO Try the things you don't like - you never know what you might learn, who you might meet or what ideas might spring from it. It pays to be a bit brave.
Dolly's Career DON'Ts:
DON'T Assume you know the answer - collaborative thinking comes up with the best options.
DON'T Be complacent - there's always someone else who wants your job as much as you do.
DON'T Work all the time - it's hard to remember but you work better if you live life too.'

I was flicking through some old posts and began to adore vintage Vogue covers again, luckily they are relevant  (sort of) for this post :)

Mini or Maxi?

17:56 Posted by Jessica 27 comments

I did plan this post ahead so after publishing it, spending 10 minutes looking for it, I realized I wasn't going mad. 
The post has was in my July archive 
(that's when I drafted it) ; this proves my lack of computing skills!

What is best Mini or Maxi skirt? While the maxi skirt is a a big current trend that can have so many effects a mini skirt is classic. But what do you think?

Above left: jacket, £140, Warehouse; bustier, £18, ASOS; skirt, £115, Coast; wedges, £80, Office

Above centre: top, £58, Cabbages & Roses; skirt, £45, Asos; headband, £7, Topshop; belt, £16, Dorothy Perkins; shoes, £100, Red or Dead at Schuh

Above right: top, £45, Jovonna; dress, £70, Urban Outfitters; sunglasses, £12.99, River Island; bag, £30, ASOS; sandals, £145, Ash 

I think the pink skirt would be great for colour blocking, the blue skirt alike but I'm not sure about the last one...

Above left: blazer, £34.99, River Island; T-shirt, £14.99, Miso at Republic; skirt, £32, Topshop; bag, £44, Urban Outfitters; socks, £5.25, Pamela Mann at My Tights; shoes, £45, Next

Above centre: shirt, £26, bra £12, both Topshop; skirt, £34.99, River Island; hat, £18, Next; wedges, £32, Chockers

Above right: dress, £70, Jovonna; fascinator, £32, Accessorize; shoes, £60, ASOS 

The last two are lovely but the first one isn't so great...
