Green with envy

Green was seen all over the Autumn/Winter 08 catwalks in particular khaki and bottle green as seen in the Aquascutum, Giles Deacon, Christopher kane and Bora Aksu collections, so get way ahead of the game with these gorgeous platform sandals £55 from

These will also work well with the current ultility trend, i.e. utility shirt dresses etc.

Dior dead ringer!!

Dior's 'Diorette' ring (above left) is absolutely stunning and so in keeping with this seasons floral and statement jewellery trend, but at £ 3,200 it's a little out of most of our price ranges, however this ring from the Swatch Bijoux collection is pretty similar and is a mere £35!!

They also have lots of other gorgeous statement rings, and most have matching bracelets, necklaces and earrings to accompany them.

Check out the swatch jewellery at

Nautical madness!

As i predicted months ago, the nautical trend is HUGE this season, and it's even found it's way into our accessories like these anchor earrings from for the bargain price of £3. these are great if your a little worried about going for the whole nautical stripes thing (eg vertical stripes making you appear larger), wear these with a plain red t-shirt and add blue bangle and 'voila' you'll be a nautical babe. is a great website full of lovely and original jewellery and bags at fantastically low prices, created in 2007 and run by a young and funky team of people, it's set to be big news. They also do a lovely gift wrapping service for just £2, so it might be the ideal place to buy a few pressies for someone special.

The safari trend is hot this season, as it tends to be pretty much most summers, but if you don't fancy going the whole hog with the the safari dress, jacket etc and are not a great lover of khaki then how about adding a few accessories like this tiger print Mikey bangle set £16

Rainbow steps...

The sun is shining ladies and it looks as though spring may finally be on it's way, so get in the mood with these gorgeous peeptoe rainbow shoes and put a spring in your step!

Would look great with this seasons trend for flared 70's style jeans or just to liven up a plain skirt.

Alexander the great!

These Alexander McQueen square toe shoes have just arrived at

I think they are very 'posh spice', and come with a posh price tag of £335, but they are fab, i love the bright pink soles!

For serious heel wearers only though as i think that most of us would struggle to walk in these super high, super skinny heels. to be saved for meals only perhaps, when you only need to step out of a cab and into a restuarant, then back again?

Dressing up time! is a fantastic website where you will find any dress that you've ever dreamed of and any colour (perfect if you know exactly what colours suit you) or size that you wish, (it also offers a made to measure service).

Most of they're creations are exact copies of celeb dresses, like this classy little number worn by Rachel Bilson.

So the next time that you have a party to go to ladies, you know just where to go, and i'm sure you will be the envy of every other woman there!

The Dot Cotton school of style

I think this vintage looking bag from is gorgeous, even if it is a little Dot Cotton!
I love the nautical feel it has to it, and you can even remove the scarf, but at £120 it's not cheap girls!

Tea time!

Tea dresses are very in this season as is floral print, and i love this very girly dress £55 from

It would look great teamed with a pair a brown chunky sandles or wedges or with a thick pair of tights, brown chunky boots and a cardi until the weather warms up a little!
