Pick of the beach bags from Spartoo

It’s almost June, and, as far as I’m concerned, that means holiday season will soon be upon us. I’m getting ready to jet off myself at the end of the month, and am already sorting out my holiday  wardrobe, shoes and sandals, and accessories. And one of the most important accessories is the beach bag.

Think about it. Whilst on holiday, you use your beach bag almost every single day, whether you are heading off to the beach, or planning to lounge around the pool. It needs to be big enough to carry a towel, suntan lotion, book, sunglasses, purse, and all manner of other things we carry around with us when we are on  our hols. But it also needs to be light, those straps that cut into the bare skin of our shoulders are a real no-no. Washable is also good, suntan lotions often leak and damp towels leave chlorine and sea water all over the bags.

Spartoo are well known for their fabulous range of shoes, but they have also branched out into bags, and have some really great beach bags from names like Rip Curl, Clarks and Tosca Blu. Well worth a look this season.

Friday shopping – Celebrity get the look featuring Millie Mackintosh, Rosie Fortescue and Lucy Mecklenburg

More celebrity style, and it seems like everyone is enjoying the sunshine at the moment except for me. There are just so many gorgeous ladies who are enjoying the heat in places like LA and, of course, Marbella, and showing off their bronzed bods in a range of gorgeous apparel.

From Tulisa and Lucy Mecklenberg soaking up the rays in Marbs, to the ever gorgeous Millie Mackintosh somehow finding the only splash of sunshine to hit London this season, these ladies know how to make the most of their wardrobes sunny days. And, with many of us looking forward to our own summer holidays starting next month, maybe now is the perfect time to get some beach inspiration.

Kate Moss for Kerastase – looking to the style icons of the past

In the year that we celebrate 25 years of Kate Moss the supermodel and style icon, it is only fitting that in her latest campaign, she is looking to the style icons of past years. In the beautiful black and white images that adorn the ad campaign for hair care brand Kerastase, Kate looks timelessly beautiful and glamorous, but also just a little like some famous ladies from Hollywood’s past.

Take a look and see if you agree.

Kate as …Catherine Deneuve

With her blonde locks teased and sprayed into a retro bouffant style reminiscent of the 1960s dolly birds, you can’t help but look at Kate and think of Catherine Deneuve in her glacial Belle De Jour era. Hair full of volume and lift – total glamour. Kate as Severine, can you see it too?

Kate as…Rita Hayworth and Veronica Lake

Onto the next image, a vampish Kate with 1940s style waves and a slinky black strapless dress. Again, a totally stunning image, but one you can’t look at without thinking of Rita Hayworth as Gilda, in a similar black dress and peekaboo hairstyle. And speaking of peekaboo hair, with those flowing blonde locks, the immortal Veronica Lake is also conjured up. Kate is known to be a fan of her style and look, so it’s no surprise she should channel it in a glamorous shoot.

Kate as…Lauren Hutton and Farrah Fawcett

In the third shot, Kate is all hot Californian dream girl of the 1970s. With flicked, wavy hair, Kate resembles the Studio 54 era blondes Lauren Hutton and Farrah Fawcett. The Halston style halter neck dress only improves the image further.

I personally love Kate’s retro style tribute. Real glamour never fades, and Kate and the ladies featured in this blog are real proof of that.
