AW13: Ted Baker – Takes The Scenic Route

AW13 ted baker 18 AW13: Ted Baker   Takes The Scenic Route %tagTed Baker’s seasonal catwalk shows have become quite a fixture in my schedule, as not only does it give me a preview of the up-coming collection, but it is always so beautifully produced.

For the autumn/winter 2013, Ted has been inspired by ‘taking the scenic route’, so there was a travel theme throughout the catwalk show mixed in with lots of old school glamour, vibrant colours, elegance, dark floral prints, and the most incredible selection of coats.

I know it is hard to think autumn/winter and layering when the sun is shining outside but most of the retailers are starting to drop their new collections in store so I thought I would starting sharing some of the best collections.

The highlights at the Ted Baker show for me had to be the decadent geometric prints with matching jackets and trousers, the exquisite ‘hairy’ clutches, as well as all the dark moody florals. I have added a mini wishlist at the bottom of some of the pieces that have already rolled out online – I really love the dress with the scalloped detailing.

What do you think of Ted Baker’s autumn/winter 2013 collection?

Shopping: The Print Overload Edition

SS12Prints1 Shopping: The Print Overload Edition %tag

One of the biggest trends this summer has to be prints, whether it is the retro car print inspired by Prada, or the scarf trend seen on the catwalks at D&G, or even a splash of florals, zig-zags, animal or tribal prints, there are colourful prints for everyone this season.

How you wear it is totally up to you, be bold and work your print head-to-toe as seen as Proenza Schouler, or just go for a little print magic by working printed trousers with a pastel or white tee, or do it the other way round and wear a bold printed luxe t-shirt with skinny jeans. Or why not go for an extra dose of prints by following Sportsmax’s approach and go for clashing prints – trust me, not for the faint-hearted!!!

Shopping: All About The Jubilee

jubilee Shopping: All About The Jubilee %tag

I love a good celebration, whether it is my birthday **hint, hint it’s this weekend**, a wedding, or an anniversary, so The Queen’s DIamond Jubilee is right up my street. Not only am I becoming a little bit of a royalist but I am loving that so many fashion brands have got behind the Union Jack, which if I do say so myself is by far the prettiest flag!!!

There are so many cool Jubilee-related items out there and I am loving places like Selfridges and Liberty’s that have put together dedicated Jubilee pop-ups and gorgeous window displays. It was hard narrowing down my choices for this special Jubilee shopping edit, but here are my 15 must-have/wishlist purchases:

1. Tatty Devine Crown Tiara, £66 exclusive to Selfridges – this is the perfect finishing touch to any Jubilee outfit.

2. Thomas Sabo Crown Charm, £59 – I am a Thomas Sabo addict, I love a good charm and this beauty complete with a real diamond would be the perfect addition to any bracelet.

3. House of Holland Tea Towel, £25 from Browns – leave it to Henry Holland to bring cheeky to the Jubilee – I love this slogan tea towel.

4. Ice-Watch Union Jack Watch£75 – put together my new fav watch brand and a patriotic face and I am there!!!

5. Nails Inc Jubilee Crystal Colour, £15 – inspired by the Union Jack this is a fun nail varnish featuring red, blue and silver glitter, it also comes with a crystal cap and a patriotic British themed gift box.

6. Aspinal of London Jubilee Clutch, £595 – OK granted very pricey but very pretty, this clutch is limited to just 50 and each one is numbered. I love the studded Union Jack and the iconic queen’s head silhouetted in vibrant colours.

7. Topshop Corgi Shopper, £10 – well I couldn’t miss out including The Queen’s favourite dog now could I – plus if you are a little fed up of the red, white and blue colour-scheme this could be perfect for you.

8. Stella & Dot Elizabeth Bracelet, £26 – this bracelet is not only cute but 20% of the proceeds will go directly to The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust.

9. Simeon Farrar Great Britain Kitten T-shirt, £45 – I am a big fan of Simeon Farrar and this is the cutest Jubilee-inspired piece that I’ve seen a cool kitten with punk rock on his paws – seriously, what’s not to love!!!

10. Filofax Jack Vintage Personal Organiser, from £17 – want something patriotic and practical? Well this Filofax is perfect, comes in two sizes pocket or personal – I love the matt finish.

11. Pretty Ballerinas Commemorative Crown Slipper, £189 – love these suede slippers that pay tribute to The Queen with an elegant crown motif on the toes.

12. Maggie Angus Silver Queen’s Jubilee Crown Necklace, £20 – I have to admit I didn’t realise how pretty crown’s were until looking at all the Jubilee pieces, this quirky silver-mirrored acrylic necklace is fun. It also comes in gold but I think I prefer the silver.

13. Ted Baker Lowbow Purse Union Jack, £79.20 at John Lewis – bows, Union Jacks and a dachshund I am sold!!! How sweet is this leather purse?

14. Alexander McQueen Silk Chiffon Shell Patchwork ‘God Save McQueen’ Scarf, £445 – want to rebel a little against the monarchy? Well not work this Union Jack-printed McQueen scarf.

15. Barbie Collector Royal Wedding William and Catherine Doll Set, £66.19 – I am sad that The Queen doesn’t have her own Barbie, I would have loved to add that to my collection, but Mattel did do one to celebrate Will & Kate’s wedding. I felt at £99 it was a little pricey but not you save over £30 I think I might need to buy it.

Are you as excited as me for the Jubilee?

Shopping: Ted Baker Flamingo Prints

Day51 Shopping: Ted Baker Flamingo Prints %tag

I love quirky, I love prints, I love bird prints, and I am a little partial to the elegance of a Flamingo – well today in the Handpicked Media suite I had the pleasure of seeing some of Ted Baker’s high summer pieces and this swimming costume is a must have piece for me. First up, great neon colour, secondly can’t go wrong with Flamingos, and finally I love a swimming costume rather than a bikini and I love this one-shoulder version as it is a little different. There are other Flamingo prints in the collection and I think I need them all!!!

SS12: Ted Baker Team Day Fashion Show

SS12TedBaker SS12: Ted Baker Team Day Fashion Show %tag

Last month I was lucky enough to snuggle under a white fleecy Ted Baker blanket, while oohing and aahing at the brand’s new spring/summer 2012 collection at their Ted Baker Team Day at the Bloomsbury Dairy. The special preview is the retailer’s bi-annual event to showcase the new collection to all the Ted Baker staff, fab idea if you ask me, and it was nice that this season they also invited a few bloggers to take in the show.

The collection was adorable, full of rich prints, strong silhouettes, and bright colours, which was perfectly displayed on a gorgeous line of dresses that would work perfectly for the wedding season. I fell in love with the blue pleated maxi, the yellow ladylike hues, geeky tailoring, and I totally want to work the top-hat look to my next formal function, I loved it paired with those flirty dresses.

The ending was also pretty spectacular full of divine floor-skimming gowns that wouldn’t look out-of-place on the red carpet.

Festive Wear: Novelty Knits For Christmas

I am finding it a little weird that my love for festive novelty jumpers isn’t being laughed at this year, rather than everyone feeling it is a little naff, it seems everyone is getting in on the act. A couple of weeks ago I shared the Net-a-Porter collection of designer Christmas jumpers, which I have to admit I am still thinking of splurging on, but I felt that I should look at more affordable options. I am a love of snowflakes, animals, snowmen and even Santa motif jumpers, and I have tracked down some beauties.

Swans Festive Wear: Novelty Knits For Christmas %tag

I am loving that there are so many swan jumpers about, these are my two favourites:

Intarsia Swan Jumper, £37, Miss Selfridge

Fluffy Swan Intarsia Jumper, £55, Oasis

Animals Festive Wear: Novelty Knits For Christmas %tag

I think animal jumpers are always my favourites, and I have gone for the cute, the fluffy, the Royal and a little on the weird side!!

Knitted Rabbit Jumper, £39, Miss Selfridge

Ivory Penguin Long Line Jumper, £35, Dorothy Perkins

Joules, Monty Corgi Print Jumper, £69.95, John Lewis

Paul & Joe, Intarsia Sheep Jumper, £135, ASOS

reindeer Festive Wear: Novelty Knits For Christmas %tag

Can’t go too wrong with a reindeer jumper, traditional yet still on trend with the animal jumpers, also mix in reindeer with a fairisle print and you are working a very wintery look.

ASOS Collection, T-shirt with Oversize Reindeer, £18, ASOS – OK technically not a jumper, but still just as cute

Pins & Needles Reindeer Sweatshirt, £35, Urban Outfitters

Ted Baker, Macha Patterned Sweater, £99, Ted Baker

Warehouse, Stag Print Sweater, £35, House of Fraser

christmasjumper Festive Wear: Novelty Knits For Christmas %tag

This isn’t actually a theme rather the traditional snowflake versus the neon naff, in a good way of course. Both are great Christmas jumpers – which one do you prefer?

Vila Nordic Knitted Snowflake Jumper, £50, ASOS

ASOS Collection, Neon Christmas Jumper, £35, ASOS

ASOSpanda Festive Wear: Novelty Knits For Christmas %tag

But my vote for the best Christmas jumper and the one I think I might wear this Christmas day has to be this gorgeous Panda Jumper from ASOS. I have been a little obsessed with planning a trip to Edinburgh just to see the new Panda’s at the zoo and this will help ease the pain of not being able to go until the New Year. Also it is such a great price at only £30.

Which one is your favourite?
