New look SS09 preview

I went along to the New Look press day on Tues to preview their spring/summer range and i wasn't disappointed, although it does seem like it's just a repeat of this summer's trends particularly with the Nautical theme, as there will be lots of nautical colours, and patterns in the form of bags, shoes and clothes which were a little, cruise ship meets brighton beach.

And it seems that wedge's will still be going strong too as well as the platform shoe as pretty much the whole shoe collection was one or the other.

The other key theme amongst the bags and shoes was fringed suede, think american indian, and lots of the bags had a real ethnic kind of tribal theme which was actually really pretty.
There were also lots of gorgeous 60's shift dresses and wonderful bright 60's inspired colours.

Pretty Polly 'Secret Slimmer' tights!

Well ladies, Christmas is the time of year that we really want to look our best with all the parties coming up, so over the next few weeks, i will be seeking out the best slimming, controlling and shape wear on the market.....

Step up contestant number one, Pretty Polly's 'Secret Slimmer' tights. Pretty Polly were kind enough to send me a lovely goody bag full of Pretty Polly products which also contained a pair of the tights and having tried them out, i have to say that i was honestly impressed, they really tightened my upper thighs, bum and stomach... what more could you want? and the best thing is that they are tights rather than control pants so you won't have that awful Bridget Jones moment if you do happen to pull the office hunk at the office party!

Pretty Polly recently carried out a rather brave stunt,
The campaign saw the winner of reality show Colleens Real Women, Sasha Parker, and her team of placard holders march down Harley Street making the point that you don’t need to pay £10k for surgery when you just need a pair of £6 Pretty Polly Secret Slimmer tights! I’m sure you’ll agree that far too many women are opting to go under the knife when they don’t actually need to and the crux of the campaign was to get this point firmly across with the assistance of Sasha who is of course ‘all woman’!

Ankle ties!

Ankle boots are really big this season, and i think that these brown lace front boots £75 from http://www.asos.com are wonderful.

You may have also noticed that boots have moved on from the pointed toe styles of yester year and are now have a more flattering rounded toe, this is especially good if you have large feet as it will make them appear smaller.

Wear these with skinny jeans or with a short skirt and tights for a really up to the minute look.

Party tier

Ok ladies, here's another one for the party dress list.

£60 from Lipsy, it's super sexy with an open back and super on trend as ruffles and tiers were heavily featured in most of the SS09 shows. so you could also carry this dress into the suumer and still be really on trend even though the dress will be 6 months old.
