My Style: Denim Skirt, Sunshine, and Fountains


Last week when I was in London having a spot of afternoon tea, I stopped by Somerset House, because why the hell not really, but I realised while walking around and of course getting snapped by Sherin that I rarely see the fountains as the square is normally taken over by the London Fashion Week tent.

It was weird just admiring the gorgeous architecture, dancing in-between the fountain jets, and generally seeing the square without the hoards of fashionistas, and best of all not cursing the cobbles when rushing off to a show. To show how pretty Somerset House is in the sun I did a 360 Instagram video, if you want to check it out head on over to my Instagram feed.

As we seem to be seeing a little sun lately I have been trying to embrace my summer wardrobe, I know that my last style post was also a denim skirt, but that one was a pencil skirt and this cutie is a flared one from Topshop’s tall collection.

Granted only subtle differences but I love that this flared skirt can literally just be thrown on with nearly anything. I paired mine with a lace detailing black top from H&M, tribal StylistPick flats that I picked up in their sale last summer, and added a pop of colour with one of my favourite bags by Rebecca Minkoff.

I Want It All: StyleMint Launches On StylistPick

I admit I am an Olsen twin fan, I love their style, I dream of owning something from their high-end line The Row, which they recently won a CFDA Award for, and I have been lusting over their casual collection of t-shirts, dresses and skirts, StyleMint since they launched it 12 months ago in the US.

Well, I have good news as their StyleMint clothing collection is now exclusive in the UK to StylistPick, yep not content with shoe collections from Cheryl Cole and Louise Roe, this is an online shopping site on the up, and if you haven’t been by lately it has changed a lot – they are now also selling sunglasses.

Prices for the Olsen’s StyleMint starts at a very affordable £15 and the highlights include the ‘Harlem’ chiffon-back tee, the simple grey marl pocket tee called the ‘Victoria’, daytime Breton stripes on the long-sleeved ‘Barley’ top and the ‘Broadway’ striped cotton dress, and to pair all these fab tees with you have the relaxed ‘Selby’ dip hem skirt that comes in pink and grey. Seriously drool worthy wardrobe staples that won’t break the bank.

1. Victoria, £182. Whitney, £153. Barley, £204. Selby, £205. Newbury, £156. Broadway, £207. Wilshire, £18.

Bag Loving: The Gorgeous Nadine

You may recognise this gorgeous vintage-inspired colour-block Gladstone bag, better known now as my Nadine, as I raved about it when I saw StylistPick’s spring/summer 2012 preview back in December, well I finally got her!!!

I knew it was coming in the April picks, and even though it wasn’t in my showroom, I nearly didn’t snag this beauty as I really do feel like April whizz by quicker than usual.

I have been carrying this beauty all day and I have had so many amazing comments, mainly that people think it is vintage, which is kind of the idea as I just love its ladylike vibe and the colours are perfection the pale pink works amazingly with the pastel blue, and I love the texture-effect to the faux leather.

But people are also loving the shape and size, which is perfect to carry all my blogging needs in this crazy press day season. I snapped it with my camera, diary, notepad, umbrella, make-up, tickets, purse, etc., inside and you wouldn’t be able to tell, as it fits it all and keeps it shape.

But even though it was in the StylistPick April showroom I noticed that the site has changed slightly and there is a new Last Chance section and the beautiful Nadine is in there, be quick as once she is gone, she is gone, and at only £39.95 I can’t expect it taking long for her to sell out.

Do you love Nadine as much as me?

StylistPick: Chery Cole Goes Candy Sweet For Spring

Today has kind of gone a little Cheryl Cole crazy, snaps of her new music video have hit the internet, I posted earlier about her gorgeous Marie Claire covers, and now StylistPick have given me an exclusive sneak preview of her new spring/summer collection for the brand.

Her debut 12-piece shoe collection for the online retailer sold really well, full of statement heels, quirky ankle boots, and comfortable biker boots, basically filled with all the things that Cheryl loves. For spring it seems Chezza is showing off her sweet tooth as she has named all the pieces after her favourite retro sweets.

First up with have Candy Sticks, a chic leather and suede mix ankle boot with toe cap and bow detailing. Cheryl says: “If Audrey Hepburn was a Noughties woman, I think she’d love this”. These feel like a spring update to the popular RiRi boots.

Next up is Fizz Balls, the cork wedge that Cheryl tweeted back in January, this glittery tassel number is sure to become a summer staple. Do like Cheryl and team with shorts and a statement tee.

Finally, my favourite of the preview has to be Flying Saucers, not only are they my fav retro sweeties but I am loving the double strap detailing on these t-bar sandals, and for £79.90 they are great value for some ladylike leather heels.

The full collection goes on sale at StylistPick this Thursday, but if this preview is anything to go by I am sure it is going to be another hit for Cheryl.

What do you think – will you be buying anything from Cheryl’s new collection?

Cover Loving: Cheryl Cole Shines For Marie Claire

Marie Claire teased us all on Facebook yesterday with who was gracing their May cover, I think a lot of people guessed correctly that it was Cheryl Cole, but I have to admit I was blown away with how gorgeous she looks on the subscriber cover it makes me sad I don’t subscribe!!!

Admittedly, her dress does remind me a little of Ashley Olsen’s Swarovski crystal and sequinned lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana that she wore on ELLE last month, but hey I would have loved it as the newsstand cover. That isn’t to say she doesn’t look incredible on the newsstand version in that white body-con draped dress with cut-out detailing to the waist – Cheryl has seriously been working out as she looks amazing.

The May issue hits newsstands on Thursday, the same day her spring/summer 2012 collection of shoes hits StylistPick, and the editorial shoot gives you a sneak peek at the heels, and they look as good as her debut range.

Which cover do you prefer?

Shop Her Style: Cheryl Cole Wears Reiss and Hudson Jeans

Who: Cheryl Cole

Where: At the airport in LA

Wearing: A cream, shaggy faux fur ReissJillie‘ jacket, teamed with leopard print leggings, a Mulberry Tillie bag and a pair of boots from her new shoe collection for StylistPick, the brown suede ‘Funky Munky’ tassel boots, and her signature over-sized sunnies.

Buy Her Style: Faux fur is everywhere at the moment on the high-street and this shaggy Jillie jacket from Reiss is one of the best, priced at £245. Cheryl’s debut shoe collection has gone down well and I am glad to see her sporting her own designs, especially these cute brown booties, which can be yours for £119.85 from StylistPick.

Wearing: Cheryl has also been seen working her Reiss faux fur coat with the purple coated super skinny Nico Hudson Jeans

Buy Her Style: As if Cheryl needs to look skinnier, but these Hudson Jeans have a second skin silhouette to make you look taller and slimmer and I love this vintage amethyst hue because it has a look of leather about it – these jeans can be yours for $198.

Flashy Footwear: Cheryl Cole for StylistPick

I had heard great things about the Cheryl Cole’s first foray into designing with StylistPick.com but I wasn’t prepared for how great the shoes and boots would be. Don’t get me wrong not everything in the 12-piece collection is my cup of tea, but what I was really surprised about was how there is something for everyone and how well the pieces showcase her style from the towering heels to the edgy biker boots.

What I loved most about the line has to be the funky names from Your Royal Hottness to Byker Groove (below), and my favourite being Funky Munky. There is even a pair of leopard print boots called Ri Ri modelled by Chezza above – do you think that is shout-out to her pal Rihanna. The collection really does showcase her personality and you can tell she was very involved.

I love Cheryl’s ‘signature shoe’ the nude studded platform, very Louboutin and at £79.9o exceptional value. My favourite of the killer heels has to be Hot To Trot, I just love that houndstooth print and the concealed platform – very chic, and again a bargain at £79.90.

Probably my favourite of the whole collection has to be Byker Groove – Mucky Puppy – causal and edgy, I love the double buckle – these boots look comfortable enough to wear everyday.

Out of all the pieces I think these ankle boots are the ones I am not sure about, I go from one extreme of loving the OTT fringe trimmed Funky Munky zip boots to really disliking the two-tone leather strap boot called Freak Le Chic – I really do feel these are something of a desired taste, just not mine. I have to admit I was surprised that only two pairs had animal print influences, but the Ri Ri boot is a step too far for me.

Overall, I am really impressed, I think the prices aren’ttoo bad ranging from £79.90-£119.85 for most of the boot styles, a bit of a price jump from the usual £39.99 but it is a limited edition collection so I can understand that. I hear that there are more styles coming next year and I am hoping that Chezza also branches out into handbags.

What do you think? What are your favourite pieces of Cheryl’s collection? Will you be buying any of the shoes?
