If like me you are obsessed with American show Revenge that has finally hit UK TV’s you will instantly recognise Ashley Madekwe as the Brit-party planner extraordinaire Ashley Davenport, if you have no clue on the show or the gorgeous Ashley – shame on you!!!
If you aren’t clued up on the hit US show, but you are thinking that Ashley looks a little familiar you might remember her as the adorable fun-loving Bambi in Secret Diary of a Call Girl, well since then she taken on Hollywood and has started her own fashion blog, Ring My Bell, which documents her passion for fashion and showcases her simple-yet-playful style, which believe it or not is mostly from the high street.
I kid you not, Ashley’s blog is filled with pieces from Zara, Topshop, Urban Outfitters, American Apparel, ASOS, and H&M, granted they are mixed in with gorgeous designer accessories from Chanel, Rebecca Minkoff, Michael Kors and Miu Miu, but the bulk of most looks are affordable.
I have picked out my five favourite looks off her blog that I completely coveting:
Look 1 (top image): These are the most amazing floral jeans I have seen and they were from Zara, I love that the bold, bright print is paired with a simple white tee, and some hot Barbie pink strappy heels, oh and I can’t forget that clashing House of Harlow leopard-print clutch. Cute look that was finished off with neon yellow nails – I seriously wish I could pull off this look!!!
Looks 2-4 (above): What makes Ashley’s wardrobe stand-out for me has to be her love of colour, these three looks showcase that perfectly, from her flirty yellow dress from online fashion label Three Floor, that I am going to have to check out, to her lemon jeans teamed with a tribal top, and the most adorable of all the looks is her coral Urban Outfitters jumper teamed with those cute stripy Topshop shorts that I am sure a lot of fashion bloggers will be rocking this summer.
Look 5 (below): My favourite of the five looks has to be this one, mainly because I think is the one that I could possible, I say that loosely get away with rocking. I love the combination of the oversized jumper teamed with Topshop’s high-waisted Jamie jeans, which at £40 I am most certainly going to have to try on this weekend. But what makes this outfit has to be the accessories, my heart skipped a beat when I saw this gorgeous red vintage Chanel bag, is it a clutch, is a shoulder bag, this beauty is everything I want in Chanel.
The rest of the accessories are just as hot, the fashion bloggers must have watch from Michael Kors, I know a lot of people who have this beauty, add in the skull ring, the neon bracelet, and the piece from DanniJo and I am seriously wanting it all.
One thing that is clear from Ashley’s blog is that she is a serious lover of high-heeled shoes and Zara, and she really does show how a pop of colour makes an outfit. I am not saying lets all go out and copy, but I think I need a pair of floral trousers/jeans I thinking a darker print would be better for me, I need more neon bracelets, I seriously need to check out Zara it is a shop I rarely buy anything from, and those Topshop jeans need to be added to my wardrobe!!!
So what do you think – are you loving Ashley’s style as much as me?
