Limited edition 1969 jeans and music events at Gap

Be a part of history and get yourself down to the special Gap store this September......

40 years ago Doris and Don Fisher opened the first Gap store in San Francisco and, to celebrate, Gap is launching the gap1969 Denim Concept Store just off Carnaby Street for a limited time only; 19 days and 69 hours to be exact. The three-floor store on Kingly Court will showcase an extensive range of Gap’s iconic denim styles, specially produced in uniquely engineered washes. Strictly limited edition, only 69 pairs of each style will be available, each pair individually stamped and numbered. On the opening day ONLY we will also be offering the opportunity to purchase a limited edition pair of Gap (PRODUCT) REDTM rinsed jeans in your favourite Gap fit for £19.69, with half the profits from all jeans sold going towards the Global Fund to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.

The store will also stock bespoke denim pieces from designers Pierre Hardy and Albertus Swanepoel, showcase work from celebrated illustrator and photographer, Garance DorĂ© and will host the European launch of Pharrell Williams’ new Bionic Gap Collection.

With music such an integral part of Gap’s heritage, the store will also host a selection of breakthrough artists, with live, acoustic sets. VV Brown kicks off the sessions, performing at gap1969 on the opening night followed by Taio Cruz on Friday.

Must buy - ASOS one shoulder jumpsuit

I am loving this soft jersey jumpsuit from ASOS, in one of AW09 biggest colour trends, Grey and the hugely trendy one shoulder style, this is so figure flattering and the soft movement of the fabric against your skin should make you feel extremely sexy and comfortable.

This should take you all the way through until next summer!
Glam it up with a few chunky bangles and some statement earrings.

Hands on style at French Connection!

This knit dress is so cheeky, i love it!

I'm actually surprised that this is from French Connection as i would expect to see a design like this from a top designer rather than on the highstreet, but thank goodness it's not designer and priced at a more affordable £75.

I would avoid this if your not happy with your stomach or hips though girls, as it will just draw all attention to them!

Celeb Style Steal - Kate Moss

Get laced like Kate Moss in this almost exact copy of her lace top at ASOS at only £28!
It's also available in this season's hottest colour 'deep purple', which i actually prefer, this colour looks great on anyone with dark features.
Wear with leather leggings or skinny black rocker jeans and ankle boots just as kate would or pretty it up with a little skirt instead.

Bikini's for AA cups to DD+ boobs!

Ok, we're all different shapes and sizes girls, which is why sometimes a generic bikini style just won't do. If your a AA cup your going to want a boob boosting style to give you that extra confidence on the beach, and if your a DD+ cup then your going to want support for those puppies and it's actually quite difficult to find DD+ styles, particularly if your small everywhere else. If you were to go into a highstreet store and try on, say a basic string bikini, you'd have to get a much larger size to accommodate your bust which would leave you with huge baggy bottoms, so you need to go for mix and match styles that you can often find in catalogues and online where you can pick say, a size 14 top and size 10 bottoms or go for a specialist DD+ style and brand like Bravissimo, figleaves are great for stocking DD+ bikinis, and probably the best place online to find DD+ bras too as they have a huge selection to choose from.
And for those of you smaller girls that want a boost, (i can sympathise as i was an A cup for years before they suddenly grew when i turned 19 and this was before gel bras or chicken fillets existed, so i used to stuff shoulder pads down my bra!) i have found a fantastic website that specialises in gel filled bikini's and bras for smaller busts, the sizes start from 30AA (like the one pictured far left), but their gel bras also go up to a size 38DD for those of you bigger busted girls that like the look and feel of gel bras, personally prefer these even though i'm a 32DD as they give a fantastic shape under clothes and give great support.

Tip - It's really important to get your boobs properly measured at least once a year as our body's change all the time due to weight gain/loss, hormones, and age, and according to surveys, a whopping 80% of women are wearing the wrong the bra size!

80's chic at Lipsy

Well, ladies 80's fashion is well and truly back to haunt us all, from shoulder pads and leggings to slouchy off the shoulder tee's (think flash dance) and bright neon colours. But i'm actually quite pleased about it, most people say that the 80's was the era that style forgot, but i think it was fun and feel good fashion, even if it wasn't the most flattering, and i always wished that i had been a teenager in the 80's (I was a teenager in the grungy 90's) as it just seemed like such a fun time where you could experiment with all kinds of crazy colours, styles and shapes, tacky plastic jewellery and blue eye shadow, (i am a classy chick really!), so anyway, i'm thrilled that i get my chance to don the 80's trends this season..minus the blue eyeshadow of course.

The good news though, is that this time it's a bit more classy so much easier to pull it off, i love the whole jumpsuit thing that's going on at the moment, and this one from Lipsy is fab, glam it up with super heels, a classy clutch and lots of bling. and this feather print one shoulder tunic also from Lipsy is just pure 80's glamour, wear it with leggings for a really comfy look.

Don't forget to Beth Ditto giveaway below, a winner will be picked on Friday!
