Little Black Dresses - Style & Advice

As the January sales have worn me out, these dresses are the bargain buys from my favourite high street store Topshop. Both being of a classic look, with lace and ruffles and above the knee cut, I fell in love with these items as soon as I saw them. They look amazing on, worn with black wedges a dip dye hair effect and my favourite Kate Moss Lipstick #01. Both Dresses were down from £40 to £20 and £15. I could not believe my luck when I saw these dresses in my sizes , I just had to impulse buy.
Enjoy :)

January Sales- Style and beauty

Happy New Year! Bring on fresh new trends and fresh new styles for whats round the corner of spring/ summer 2013!. Things can't get anymore exciting then this as the winter wardrobe will slowly start to fade out the spring/summer trends will start to makes its way through to the high street stores, So whats better then getting those winter bargains in your handbags then to face the January Sales! This consisted of me preparing myself of what the stores were going to be left with or what stock the stores had to offer. I managed to pick out some amazing bargains in Topshop, I brought 2 dresses, both of a black colour in the petite range which I was pleased with. I also got a Phone cover , ( I did not actually need this) but again was a very good deal! Being a lipstick fanatic , also a nail varnish addict I treated myself to two amazing colour lipsticks from the Kate Moss range. I got the #01 and #02 which would go amazingly with these 2 party frocks I now own, I'm terribly excited to wear them , and I'm sure they will perfectly match my outfits in every way possible. I then got the Rimmel London glitter red and a plain red nail varnish which again would go with these 2 bargains and would give my party outfit that final touch of glamour.
Here are a few images of my little bargain buys! Enjoy!

Clothes Show Live: At The Heart of British Fashion

Clothes show live, the UK's largest and most talked about fashion and beauty event, is this year preparing to stage the most fashionable, inspirational and interactive show in its 24 year history. The day was full of surprises and delight as soon as I arrived at Birmingham. There was a sudden buzz of excitement when getting to NEC because of the celebration of fashion at its finest. I had Press Passes to the event, giving me front seats in the Fashion Theatre and exceptional service in the Press Pass Lounge area, surrounded with free refreshments, internet access, exhibitor press materials and private seating area which was amazing. This year the Show was presented by Grace Woodward and Henry Holland which delivered exceptional entertainment to crowds of screaming fans and fashion focused women. Zara Martin, DJ, model and star of Sky livings , "Show me your Wardrobe" was the host of the diet coke image catwalk in association with Cosmopolitan Magazine showcasing Autumn/Winter high street collections, final year collections from fashion students as well as pieces from designers of the future. Visitors get the unique opportunity to get up and close to the very best British Fashion Vintage, designer, Graduate, couture and high street collections showcased on one stage in an original themed fashion show featuring 40 hand picked models and dancers and styled by backstage teams, Karl Willett, Paul Mitchell and Benefit Cosmetics. The show was sensational, I was never looking else where but just on the catwalk and at the creative clothes which were showcased beautifully. I was up and personal with the clothes as I was front row, I loved every minute of it. Was truly inspiring and dazzling. The Beauty Hall was extraordinary, ranging from Rimmel, Barry M and Models Own, which were my favourite stalls in the beauty hall. I saw products being demonstrated in creative ways and saw the latest products to buy such as the Show Stopper nail varnish by Models Own was absolutely incredible , I fell in love with this polish as soon as I saw it and was impressed with the quality of it. Clothes Show Live was a fantastic day out , inspirational and aspirational experience , it gives the opportunity to young up and coming talents in the fashion industry to showcase their ideas and get their name out there. It was an incredible experience seeing the show, which was sponsored by Suzuki , whether shoppers are looking for a brand new winter wardrobe, present for friends, spot celebrities or watch a fast paced catwalk show, clothes show live is the number one location for Christmas.
