My Style: When JD Met Tommy

My style amazon dress 4 My Style: When JD Met Tommy %tag

I spend a lot of my time in jeans, from skinny to boyfriend and even the odd flared cut, in dark blue, light blue, red floral print, grey, and even a stripy pair, I just love them, but this summer I have really been embracing the good weather **where the hell has it gone** and trying to wear more summery, girlie looks.

Last week, when the sun was shining, I wore this Tommy Hilfiger beauty that I found on Amazon’s dress store, yep that place where you buy books, blu-rays, and the occasional Barbie, **I call it the online shop for the three B’s**, has opened The Dress Shop, which has thousands of dresses from brands including Cacharel, French Connection, BCBG, Great Plains, Yumi and Hoss Intropia.

It was hard to just choose one out of thousands, but it was easy to find this short-sleeved blue and white checked dress using Amazon’s easy-to-navigate search for the ‘Occasion’ with dresses for work, evening, special occasion, and casual, which is so perfect for summer dresses. You can also ‘Shop by Trend’ choosing from lace, fit & flare, colour pop, pastels, or just white, basically they have a dress for everyone and for all occasions.

What I love about this dress is that it can be dressed down with gladiator flats and a matching skinny belt, or with fancy black heels and a statement necklace, it really is a versatile piece for my wardrobe that will definitely be perfect come winter time as well.

I actually wore this for a day lounging in the park reading magazines and listening to music, which was the perfect opportunity to try out my new bright blue Monster N-Tunes headphones. I love the on-ear style, especially these ones as they are lightweight as well as being super comfortable with the padded cushions. I also loved that they come with tangle-free cables, you probably don’t believe me but trust me they really work, it is one of my pet-hates having to untangle my headphones for 10 minutes before being able to use them.

I also got to take out my new Moschino case out for my Samsung S5, this case is a limited edition style and features a peace pattern, and I love that it has a handy card pocket on the inside so you just need to take your mobile out with you on a night out. The only thing I need to get use to is the flip style, it makes it a little uncomfortable while on the phone. The best bit though is when you close the case it also turns the screen on and off, so saving battery, which is always needed with me!!!

So what do you think of my Tommy Hilfiger dress and new gadgets?

Daily Shop: Tesco Tie Front Tee

tescodailyshop1 Daily Shop: Tesco Tie Front Tee %tag

With Radio 1’s Big Weekend taking place this weekend it signals the start of the festival season, so for today’s daily shopping pick I have chosen something that is versatile to wear.

Pair this Tesco F&F Tie Front T-shirt with jeans, denim shorts or even a maxi skirt. I love the colour as peach is refreshing for summer, but I think I love the price even more at £8 it is a bargain.

Trends AW10: Capes From The High Street

One of my favourite trends coming for autumn/winter 2010 has to be the cape, I loved seeing them come down the runway at London Fashion Week in February and its great to see the high street coming up with price-friendly alternatives.

I have picked a number of capes, with the one above from ASOS.com being one of my favourite, I think going for a dark shade is best for me but there are so many camel and beige shades as well, and the hood on this one is an added bonus. Not out until September but already been added to my wish-list.

Second up is this navy military cape from Primark, not due in stores until the beginning of October but with a price tag of just £25 surely it is worth the wait, the addition of the belt makes it a smart alternative to a coat. I also love these wet-look leggings (£7 – end of September) and black lace ankle boots (£15) that the cape has been styled with – makes me excited about the cold weather.

Next up is this designer collaboration with Debenhams from Rocha.John Rocha, this brush cape has leather pipping details and a longer length than most which is what is so flattering. Surprising this cape is only £65 which is a bargain and grey is going to be everywhere so this is a good trend choice.

If you after grey then this one from Tesco is another good contender from the F&F collection, priced £35. The only problem with this one for me is that capes can easily look like a blanket so always make sure you try on a few to see which ones suit you.

For a lighter shade this Monsoon Carmel cape is perfect. I love the knit print as well as the chunky button – perfect to wear to the office, priced £65 due in store in October.

Finishing off with another cape from Primark, again they’ve gone for the military look but this one is lighter than the navy one. I love the ribbed detailing on the large hems, and it is a cheaper alternative to the Monsoon one at only £15 (due in store beginning of September.

Most stores are doing capes and I’ve seen some great ones on press days and from look books from Warehouse, M&S and New Look – so shop around for the perfect one.

Tesco And Couture – Sounds A Little Wrong

I know you’re thinking I got the heading a little wrong, but no Tesco – yep the supermarket – have launched its first ever premium collection, F&F Couture.

The collection debuts exclusively online, from March 29 and is priced between £40 and £140 – so not quite couture prices so maybe they could have sacrifice the sexy and just called it premium.

Buying Director of Tesco Clothing Jan Marchant commented: “F&F Couture signifies a new era for supermarket fashion. It’s a high fashion-led range which will enable us to meet the increased desire for affordable yet high quality clothing, and we’re so confident that the range will be a success that work has already begun on the Autumn/Winter range.”

I admit I wanted to hate it just because they went too far calling it couture – but I actually like some of the pieces. Whether I would buy it from Tesco’s is something else. I have no shame it saying a £14 dress comes from the supermarket chain, but the standout piece of the collection is the Textured Pagoda Dress (item 3), a gorgeous sculpted hourglass shape frock with ruffled collar – but it costs £140. For that type of money I want to show it off, I want people to ask where it is from – but does anyone want to admit it is Tesco Couture?

The whole range mixes print, texture and embellishment in a colour palette of zingy acid brights, muted charcoals and regal magenta tones. I love this strapless Acid Print Jumpsuit (item 2), costing £80, I think it would be perfect for a summers day, and jumpsuits are everywhere this season.

There are 16 items in totally ranging from a sheer printed racer-back vest to a heavily embellished sequin jacket, to sharp tailored shorts and harem pants, layered dresses and skirts as well as cropped jackets.

One of the jackets of note for me is the Extreme Jacket in light denim (item 1), £75, with denim everywhere this is a great alternative – I love the shoulder detailing.

So what do you reckon do you want to buy Tesco F&F Couture?
