Hot new designer!

Hemyca is a fab new design company made up of three friends, Helen, Myra & Cathy graduates from the London College of Fashion. Having worked for leading fashion brands including; Roland Mouret, Ben de Lisi, and well known high street retailers, for many years, they were inspired to create a unique vision.

Hemyca are now in their 3rd Season and have recently showcased their S/S08 collection at On/Off London. Hemyca has a large client base including working with celebrity stylists and is stocked in the UK and USA as well as online designer boutiques and also offers a made-to-measure service. All products are made in London and all fabrics are of high-quality, sourced from Europe and the UK.

I have fallen in love with most of this collection, in particular the gorgeous jumpsuit pictured left (although i wouldn't actually have the guts to wear it myself).

You can purchase some of the collection online at or or go to for more info and to view the entire collection.

Nights in grey satin...

I have fallen in love with this gorgeous vintage 70's looking silk dress £38 from

And as previously mentioned grey will be big for a/w 08 so this will keep you on trend all through next winter too!

Also available in cream.

Shoes, glorious shoes.....

These shoes from are lovely and are an absolute bargain.

The brown sandals are so on trend at the moment and are only £35, where as the grey ones (£25) are really ahead of the game with a/w 08's colour trend looking like it's predominately grey as seen on the catwalks at London Fashion Week recently, designers such as Nicole Farhi, Bora Aksu, Christopher Kane & Gareth Pugh (to name but a few) heavily featuring Grey in their collections.

Trendy work shirt

This JJ Park chiffon & knit blouse is a real different take on the classic work shirt and will add some high fashion to your wardrobe.

The black corset style panel will also make you appear much slimmer.

Wear with some black city shorts or colouttes and some shoe-boots for a really modern and smart work look.

£60 from

Topshop goes ultra feminine

Ruffles are huge this season, and this is a lovely floaty and very feminine little top, £25 from

This is a great buy as it will last you from now until next autumn, just wear with a cardi on colder days.

This would also look great teamed with the shoes in the post below.

Secret fashion TIP: ruffles are great if you have a small bust as they make your boobs appear much bigger!

1940's glamour

Bring out your inner movie screen siren with these super sexy Dita Von Teese style platform shoes.

£65 from

Would look great with a pencil skirt and some tights/stockings with a seam running up the back for that truely sexy 1940's look. You will find a great collection of these at

However this one by Miss Sixty is a little more affordable at £125
