As a blogger, it is part of the job to trawl the internet looking for new and interesting websites offering fashion that is something a little different from the High Street.  And, in the current climate, if the website also offers prices that constitute fantastic value, well, that has to be a bonus too. I’ve just discovered and I’m definitely in the mood for sharing. DressLily is an online clothing and accessories store that is well worth a visit, with lots of choice and prices that are frankly amazing.


For one thing, the site is frankly huge, and it seems that you can buy almost anything fashion related from it. From wedding dresses to wigs, lingerie to women’s pumps, it is all there. Shipping internationally, the site has an ever-growing  fan base, from seasoned shoppers who fill their online baskets to the brim, to wholesalers on the look for special lines for independent stores.

Currently you can find some good deals on a range of women’s shoes, including free shipping. There are some really amazing heels, from sequin designs with a nod to Mr Louboutin, to Kate Middleton style nude stilettos. This seasons snake skin is represented by a very cute Mary Jane design, whilst there are a myriad of brightly coloured heeled designs that should ensure that you can find something to match every, and any outfit.

London to finally get a Designer Outlet


It is hard to believe that in a city like London, so crammed full of style on every street corner, with every discernible kind of shop available, you cannot find a designer outlet village. But this is currently true. When I speak to my London-based friends about spending the day at a shopping outlet, they always talk about travelling out to Bicester Village, a good 45minutes from Marylebone, leaving me in confusion – you are traveling out of London to shop? Really?

But all this is about to change with the development of a new London shopping centre. In just over 4 weeks the London Designer Outlet will open. Wembley Park is set to be the newest ‘must-visit’ destination for shopping, eating out and entertainment, all within a stones throw of the famous stadium.


Wembley Park is described as a designer outlet, but in reality there will be lots of great High Street brands based there offering discounts of up to 70% off the recommended retail price. This will make it a shopping heaven for those who like to consider themselves ‘bargain hunters’. Some of the great names already unveiled as opening at the outlet include Gap, Clarks Outlet, M&S, LK Bennett, Guess and Superdry. For sporty fans there are Adidas and Nike outlets. Tie this in with great eateries like Wagamama, Prezzo and Handmade Burger, and you get all the ingredients for a great day out.


Wembley Park, London Designer Outlet officially opens on Thursday 24th October 2013, with a special launch event, and something called ‘Bargainista Blitz Squads’, of which I have no idea what it is all about, but must admit it sounds very interesting and completely up my street.  With 70 stores promised, 15 food outlets and a cinema, I will definitely be paying a visit to snap up a bargain very soon. Christmas shopping trip anyone?


Have you checked out Selectspecs yet?

Glasses are now a huge expense. Designer frames, different sorts of lenses at additional cost, and then some sort of glasses storage to ensure they don’t become scratched and broken in your handbag means that the cost of being able to see clearly comes at a high price.

Which is why I was very interested when I was asked if I wanted to select a pair of glasses from Selectspecs are an online company offering a huge range of glasses, from designers like Oakley, to sunglasses companies like Esprit. But what I was interested in economy range of prescription glasses. These were glasses that I remember being the butt of jokes when I was younger, the ‘national health’ Eric Morecambe, Jack Duckworth type of frames. Hardly the sort of thing to appeal to fashionable and stylish women. How wrong can you be?

Savannah Prescription Glasses, 77063 (Blue). £10 

The glasses I chose were the Savannah in blue. A glorious bright coloured frames, these came complete with thin and light lenses at no extra cost. I was just so impressed with these glasses. They are so lightweight that they are comfortable to wear, and the quality is really impressive when you consider the price in relation to other ‘designer’ ranges available. In addition, they look great, I’m loving the bright coloured frames, and with this price point, you would be able to choose others in different shades to match different outfits.

The glasses also come in a rather stylish carry case, again, unbelievable when we are talking just £10 for the glasses. One point I would make is that you need your recent prescription in order to choose your glasses, then you can customise your glasses.
