Being confortable and looking stylish is not always an easy thing to pull off but thanks to the introduction of the ballet pumps a few years ago it became simple. Unfortunatley my favoured gold pumps were loved so much they got holes and I never found a decent replacement – until now that is.
Oasis are launching 10 new styles of Ballerinas which even come with their own silk ballerina bag to carry them. The pumps cost £35 and are going into stores nationwide next month.
They are will be a must have for the Spring as they go with everything and the new collection of ballet pumps appear in two tone black & white patent, sumptuous leather, shiny patent, mock croc and faux prints.
We’ve just had the new Full Circle spring/summer look book through and there are some great pieces for men and women. We’ve picked out a few of our favourites.
Menswear is super casual with tees and hoodies then sported with suit jackets. Even shorts get teamed with jackets – smart on the top half and casual for the bottom.
The spring/summer women’s wear is really mixed – highwasted shorts and trousers are back and there is a distinct lack of prints – just bold colours with big hair.
This GORGEOUS John Smedley dress…
Coming in varying shapes, styles and sizzling colours, John Smedley’s SS08 collection highlights dresses that can wear for work and play.
Raspberry Torte, Sapphire, Latte and Shell are a few colour ways in this SS08 spectacular palette. Darker for work, bright for play whatever your style; these dresses are the epitome of luxurious comfort made from Island Sea Cotton and Silk/Cashmere.
With dresses that follow the body’s curves as well as pieces that create voluminous silhouettes, John Smedley demonstrates style and versatility in its SS08 dresses.

Just in today are images from Kookai’s new Spring collection.
“The collection includes the seasons key trends. Tribal has a large presence with a mix of different tribal influences such as nomad, bohemian melting pot, tribal abstraction and finally hippie chic. Many of the garments are combined with ethnic embroidery and patchworking.
This summer’s other key look is romantic florals which add a feminine feel on tops, dresses and skirts. These are combined with tailored linens to offer a more formal mood with shorts, wide leg trousers and blazers in both natural shades and vibrant tones such as purple and metallic”
