Topshop Hits

As with any self respecting fashionista, when recovering from a late night theres no better way to pick yourself up than online shopping! So with that in mind, I hopped on over to Topshop (to find the pearl & anchor necklace) and found some smashing little pieces for you and me! (see I like to share!)

Up first is this adorable zip front bow print dress- now I realise its a hard cut to carry off for most women and will therefore only suit a select few as the front zip falls directly over the stomach and the ruching detail will only highlight the stomach and hips but I thought it was super cute and worth a mention (plus I'd quite like to see a curvy girl in that to give it real sex appeal- sadly me and my straight up, straight down body cant do that so its up to the rest of you!)

Or why not go for this chiffon bow print blouse fo lady like glamour in a much more wearable style? The keyhole cut on the bust adds that hint of sexiness along with the sheer chiffon, while the collar and puff sleeves add some ladylike secretary appeal- the perfect way to walk that sexy/ladylike line and win!

Next is this Richard Nicoll dress- its just divine- the cut with the pleated skirt and frill neckline, the stripe detail, the fact its richard nicoll (he designs for Kylie and we have the same industrial sewing machine!) make it a clear cut winner! Also for anyone afraid of the length (it looks short on the monitor) just add a pair of skinny or straight cut jeans and you've got the perfect ensemble, your still perfectly on trend and saving your dignity (no one wants to be britney and show the world your vajayjay)

And because you can never have too many black dresses- check out this frill front black dress and pleat front tea dress for on trend, designer inpired pieces that you can wear from now right through summer (with sandals, oversized sun hat and bright shades of course!) and back into autumn as black dresses never go out of fashion, no matter what the magazines try and tell you!

And just because its grey and ruffled means I was bound to adore this racer back ruffle tank top- the charcoal grey is the perfect foil to summer brights (and looks amazing with every womens wardrobe staple, black), the ruffles add much needed volume to the bust for flat chested girls, while the racer back shows off your shoulders and arms in the summer. For now try throwing it over a tight fine knit scoop or round neck jumper and jeans or over a crisp white shirt and pencil skirt

As I told you a few posts back, dip dye, the new tie dye, is going to be huge this summer but to avoid looking like a gyspy throwback, try going for unusual shades such as greys, blacks and reds (and be able to wear it now and be ahead of the fashion pack) like this skirt. Its absolutely gorgeous, very different and would look fantastic now with thick tights and some mary janes and then again with flat gladiator sandals and a tank top in the summer

And for the finishing touch to any outfit try this Abalone shell ring- perfect to add a summer touch to your winter wardrobe and perfectly suited for gorgeous (fake) tanned skin in the summer!
