Hot off the press...Hire a real Celeb dress for just £40 at Topshop!























Oh yes ladies, i've been dying to tell you about this, but had to hold off until today.....

Exclusive to the Oxford Circus flagship store, Topshop is offering the once in a lifetime chance for customers to take a walk through the wardrobes of its fabulous circle of fashion friends. With one-off pieces donated by the crème of the fashion and celebrity world, customers will have the chance to hire their dream designer dress for December’s forthcoming Christmas parties.
You will be able to browse the selection of garments and try things on for size between 26th November and 6th December, before the hire period which runs 7th – 23rd December. Dresses will be available to hire for one day, and following the dress hire period there will be the opportunity to enter a silent bid and be the life-long owner of your desired dress when they are auctioned. Dress hire costs just £40.

Most importantly, all of the hire fee and proceeds from the auction will go to Topshop’s chosen charities Age Concern and Help the Aged.
Celebrites that have kindly donated to the project include Kate Moss, who donated a beautiful beaded Lanvin party dress, and Freida Pinto, who gave a pale yellow Burberry Prorsum dress. Scarlett Johansson’s Nanette Lepore animal print minidress will be available for hire, alongside a full length floral gown by Dolce & Gabbana from Peaches Geldof and a midnight blue evening dress by Australian designer Jayson Brundson from Dita Von Teese. Customers will also have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to wear one of Nicola Roberts of Girls Aloud’s bespoke stage costumes from the band’s recent tour.

Not only will the dresses be the main talking point of the evening, you will not risk running into anyone in the same inimitable piece.

Sophie Dahl comments: “I am thrilled to support Help the Aged and Age Concern through Topshop's Christmas ‘Dress Me Up’ initiative. What a good cause to put a lovely frock on for. The dress I donated is one I love, a proper party dress that deserves an outing."

Peaches Geldof is also thrilled to be able to support the campaign: “This dress was a gift from my good friends Dolce & Gabbana. It was beautifully made and means a lot to me. I wore it in Cannes and had lots of fun; I hope the next person who hires it does too. I think dress hire for charity is a great idea and Age Concern and Help The Aged are worthwhile causes. I am glad to be able to give something back to the third generation.”
Emma Cook, designer, comments: “Having worked with Topshop for so long, we didn’t think twice about donating our dress. It’s such a great cause, especially at this time of year. The combination of being able to help support Age Concern & Help The Aged and the chance for someone to wear our dress that wouldn't ordinarily be able to afford to, is such a fantastic concept.”

The dress left was donated by Oliva Palermo and the funky leopard print one was donated by Scarlett Johansson.

Perfect party dresses from Miss Selfridge!




Ahh... good old Miss Selfridge, i remember the day that i bought my first real party dress, i was 16 and it was from Miss Selfridge on Oxford Street, i had my mum with me for guidance, and i bought an absolutely gorgeous LBD with spaghetti straps and ruffles at bust, it was so perfect and totally timeless, and i was utterly devastated the day that it happened to get mixed up amongst the other laundry and got shrunk in the wash, so much so that it would have been adequate for a 10 year old girl. i still pine for my beloved Miss Selfridge dress, but stepping back into the present, they have, as usual got a great selection of party dresses this season.

Here are my two favourites of the moment, this very fairy like dress with a touch of 80's reminds me of something that Carrie Bradshaw would wear and is real girly little number, and this sequined dress, is an of the moment trend focused piece, and is even more fabulous in the flesh (or should that be cloth) as i was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the Arcadia Press preview back in August.

Trend focus - Velvet

Yes ladies, Velvet is well and truely back on the fashion radar, who'd have thought it!

And it was only recently that my good friend Michelle was in fits of laughter as she recalled, the little purple velvet dress that i used to wear out clubbing back in 1995! If only i had of held on to it!

So anyway girl, velvet is back and the velvet body con dress is key this season, just take a look at these dresses...


This black Velvet LBD is £25 from ASOS and this 'look at me' red number is also £25 from http://www.boohoo.com/ and is a great colour for the festive season!

Plus it's a fabric that's going to kind of keep you warm girls, but just make sure that you wear your body shaping tights or knickers under these figure hugging babies, girls!
