I'm a little late writing about the Beth Ditto range at Evans i know, seeing as it launched a couple of weeks ago now, but i've been holding out so that i can feature a Beth Ditto giveaway and have only just received the goods.
So anyway, i will be giving away a domino print scarf from the Beth Ditto range (the same as the domino print dress and leggings on the Evans website) to all new subscribers to FashionfindsUK (remember it's totally free), i will be picking a winner on Friday 14th August, so get subscribing girls.

Wallis has become more and more trendy over the last couple of years, but the thing i really like about it, is that it's grown up trendy with a really sophisticated feel. The AW09 collection features lots of leathers, like this really classy leather dress (yes i did just say classy and leather dress in the same sentence), and lots of bling in the form of sequined tops, jackets, leggings and dresses, like this gorgeous silver slinky dress in the pic above.

I attended the Arcadia press day on Wed which is a preview of the AW09 and Christmas collections from Topshop, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Evans and Wallis, i will review these all separately, but first up is Dorothy Perkins, which is fast becoming one of my top high street stores, due to it's trendy shake up of late.
The 80's theme was seen all throughout in the form of the colours, fabrics, style and shapes of clothes and even making it's way down to the accessories. The exaggerated shoulder trend is key for AW09 and Dorothy Perkins have gently introduced this in the form of slightly padded shoulder dresses (see in centre pic above), Sequins were seen everywhere from jackets and over sized t-shirts to clutch bags which will be lovely for the party season ahead. There is also a very Micheal Jackson like red leather jacket which gives a nod to the mid 80's.
My favourite pieces are this zebra print sheer panel dress and the over sized shoulder embellished jumper which is pure 80's glamour.
Key colours are red, gold, silver, purple and cobalt blue.

I admit to being a bit of a fashion snob when it comes to Debenhams, as i tend to think of it as a bit middle aged and not very trendy, but after recently admiring a couple of my friends tops and being shocked that they were in fact from Debenhams, i thought i'd take a look and was really surprised to come across these gorgeously on trend floral dresses by Red Herring, and even more surprised with the price's, the green dress is £35, the cutesy white one is just £30 and the lovely black oriental print dress is £45!
Perfect for summer parties (if summer actually returns)?

This is one for all of you 80's children/teenagers, these 'Tea and Cake' for Topshop tee's are soooo cool, and are only £20 each, i love the bright red Knight Rider one with 'the Hoff' on the front and these lovely black and white Aha one is a classic!
As i'm sure you are all aware, nude and neutral shades are so in right now, but the great thing about this is that it's a shade that will never go out of fashion so whatever you buy now will last you for years, plus nudes always look really classy and chic which is why i recommend investing in these nudes now whilst they are all over the highstreet. These are my top picks from Topshop at the moment...
This lovely romantic vintage looking lace bolero (£38) is so lovely and is great if your boobs are on the small side as it will give the illusion of bigger boobs, and on the other side f the spectrum, this is one to avoid if you have large boobs (anything over a DD cup) as it will just make you look top heavy. and the same goes for the sequin detail top as if you have large boobs it will either make you look as though you have one large sausage boob which is never a good look or you'll end up with spillage at the sides!
But the last one is perfect for all and would make a lovely work top whilst still being really feminine and it would also make a great bar top worn with jeans.
