Victoria by Victoria Beckham comes to Harvey Nicks!  On Monday Victoria’s sister label graced the floors of the famous Knightsbridge department store to offer customers a slightly more affordable design to her main line range.  Compared to her more expensive designs, the dresses are all-together more colourful, more girly, youthful and have emulate an air 60s style.

For the launch, Victoria teamed up with the fashion illustrator and filmaker Quentin Jones to create a totally quirky window display.  The duo took the designed cat and moon motifs, plus the scalloped prints featured on the clothes to dress up these windows.  And it didn’t stop there…they have also installed mini TV screens into the walls so passers-by can take a peek at a video of the collection.

And don’t worry you won’t miss the cat theme, as on the shop floor you will see mannequins modelling both the beautiful dresses and their dream like cat heads.

I would personally love to own the Patch Pocket dress and the Printed Button dress, but unfortunately these elegant designs don’t come cheap.  Starting from £500, I think I’ll need to save or ask my boss for a large bonus, before I can even consider buying one of these great dresses…!


Oooo hello new Whistles Spring / Summer 2012!

I got a sneak peek of Whistles new collection the other day and I am happy to report that I wasn’t disappointed.  The beautifully tailored silk suits in fresh vibrant colours, the bold print outfits and the pretty laced dresses…I just can’t decide which item I want the most!

Now I have a confusion! I am semi-obsessed with Whistles and if I could, I would so kit my whole wardrobe out with their clothes, accessories, bags…you name it…I could I would have it all!  And to honest, if you had the opportunity to wear these clothes everyday, wouldn’t you wake up happy all the time.


I love it when the high street brings out a new season collection that is not just bang on trend, but affordable too!  To be honest I’ve never been one to shop in Primark, not because I’m a brand snob…far from it, but because it never crossed my mind to pop in.  However after seeing the Primark Spring / Summer 2012 collection, I’m definitely going to brace myself for a visit to the March Arch store.  Just need to decide what I want more…is it the soft pastel trousers, or the bold printed tops or maybe even the pretty feminine dresses!!!  However with their collection starting from £8…I don’t think I’ll need to pick just one 🙂
