I came across this great little online U.S. boutique due to the fact that the owner kindly mentioned FashionfindsUK in the blog section of her website in the article 'What's hot? what's not? the latest list from the fashion experts' (see fashionfindsuk mentions section, left for details). very unique jewellery like this crown necklace $18 and lovely bags like this one $65 and she also sells home decor and ships to the UK.
So check it out ladies, it has some beautiful little things.

A/W 2008 trend forecast

Ok, i have had a look at the highstreet preview's for next season and Tartan seems to be a very strong trend as seen in the Miss Selfridge, New Look, River Island, Next and pretty much all of the other highstreet collections in particular the tartan skirt.

Another big one that's been carried on from this season will be the 70's trend ie wide legged, flared trousers etc.

And if you like pussybow blouses then your in for a treat as you'll find them pretty much every highstreet store this autumn.

Another trend that will be carried on but will be a little more exaggerated is the Architectural shoe trend, like these ones far left from Miu Miu £610 and these quite bizarre plum coloured ones from Dior priced at £490, so keep your eye out for some more unusual shoes this autumn, the Architectural trend will also work its way into our accessories which will be really unusual shapes and sizes, in particular bangles.

And the shoeboot will still be going strong for Autumn too, plus a surprise shoe trend will be bejewelled flats that are said to become fashionable evening wear.

The Military jacket that was big a couple of years ago will also make a big come back next season, so time to dig yours out from the back of the wardrobe ladies!

The key colour trends will be -

  • Grey as seen in the A/W catwalk collections of Nichole Farhi, Bora Aksu, Christopher Kane and Gareth Pugh who's entire collection was Grey, although i little weird if you ask me!
  • Khaki Green
  • Khaki Beige
  • Plum & Purple
  • Navy

And the key fabrics will be Silk, Lace and Wool.

Well ladies, i hope that sets you up for planning your winter wardrobe!

Celeb 'IT' bag as seen on Cameron Diaz, Eva Longoria & many more!

Another great find from is this genius bag from SOLAS (£95), it has quickly become a hit with the celebs with the likes of Cameron Diaz, Eva Longoria, Jessica Alba (as pictured above), Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and Minnie Driver.
The thing that makes this bag so fab is that it has an interior light, so that you can find exactly what your looking for pronto, and an internal mirror so that you can even put your lippy on in the dark!
You also have a choice of two straps, one leather to match the bag and one chain detail strap (as seen in the picture), or you can just use it as a clutch bag, which i personally think looks much better.

Halo dress as seen on Paris Hilton!

I know that Paris Hilton is probably the last person that you'd take style advice from, but sometimes she doesn't do too badly in the style stakes, take this dress by Halo (£180) for instance, simple and classy and ties in with the one shoulder trend of the season.

Hot picks of the week!

ASOS have come up trumps with their accessories this week with this gorgeous flower corsage waist cinching belt at £22, perfect for adding a bit of style and glamour to an otherwise plain outfit. This woven bag is fantastic and big enough to store everything but the kitchen sink, priced at only £12.

And i love this leopard print bangle, although it's a little pricey at £70!

And just for your info, the gorgeous Chloe aligator clutch bag that i posted about back in January is now available to buy at asos for £656, pricey i know but if you can afford it, i think it will be a great investment buy as i reckon that it will still look fashionable in 15 to 20 years time, my mum has a clutch bag just like it she has had it for over 20 years now. so if you think of it like that, the cost will only work out at £43 per year spread over 15 years, which is not so bad.
