Halloween fashion ‘thrillers’

When you ask most people what they love about the month of October, they will probably mention Halloween in their answer. At one time Halloween seemed to be more popular in America than in the UK, but that is no longer the case. Trick or Treat, Halloween parties and dressing up are all much anticipated and enjoyed, and, as the end of the month is drawing ever nearer, people are beginning to think about their costumes.

There are plenty of celebrities to take your Halloween inspiration from, because, let’s face it, some celebrities love nothing more than getting dressed up in their best spooky costumes come All Hallows Eve. Kim Kardashian, Kate Moss, Heidi Klum, Hilary Duff and Christina Aguilara have all been photographed in some pretty amazing costumes over the years, although for some, the link to Halloween is more tentative. (Yes, I’m talking to you Kim.)

Topshop has launched a fantastic Halloween section which allows you to bring the fashion of the witching hour into your daily wardrobe. These are pieces you could wear to attend an Halloween party if you wanted to avoid a full costume, or just fun items that you could wear almost anytime of the year. I love the Spooky embroidered slippers that have just a touch of Charlotte Olympia to them, and the metallic cross back midi dress is super sexy and would look so glam teamed with a black Morticia wig and the red devils horns.

I’m ending this post in a slightly different way by sharing two of my favourite Halloween themed songs – Just because. Enjoy!

 

 

What are you planning to do this Halloween? Will it involve dressing up (keep those answers clean folks!)

New Year Celeb Style featuring Sam Bailey, The Kardashians and Rosie Huntington Whiteley

The first celebrity style post of 2014 is a look at some fantastic looks that I missed in a very busy December, and also some celebrity style launches that are well worth a glance.

We have the new queen of X Factor, and also Queen of Phase Eight, Sam Bailey, who flew the flag for women everywhere who just look for a chance to wear a beautiful gown. She positively blossomed before our eyes on X Factor, and every time her on-stage wardrobe featured Phase Eight, she won in the style stakes too. No wonder she is now adapting this for red carpet appearances, like at the Cosmopolitan Style Awards,

TV’s Loose Women are styled to perfection every day, looking groomed and immaculate. What is great is that almost all their looks are made up from the cream of the High Street. Such is the case with Sally Lindsey’s hot pink Wallis blouse, and Jane McDonald’s brocade jacket (now an absolute steal in the M&Co sale.)

Other great looks include a brilliant steal the look from Wallis that is great if Nicole Kidman is your style icon, and some of the latest looks from the Kardashian collection for Lipsy – this time heavy on the florals(love!). Thinking of the cold winter’s nights, we have a couple of my fave picks from the Rosie for Autograph range.

And finally, we have a couple of hot looks from young Hollywood, with Bailee Madison ethereal in French Connection, and Victoria Justice showing why Boohoo Boutique is such hot property at the moment.

Happy New Year!

The Kardashian Collection arrives at Lipsy

In the week that Kim and Kanye announced their engagement, ensuing maximum amount of column inches to everything and anything involving the couple, those Kardashian ladies unveiled their latest bid for world domination with their first collection for Lipsy.

This has been a much – anticipated collection, especially since a series of suitably glamorous images of the Kim, Khloe and Kourtney had been released showing them wearing some of the key pieces.  The Kardashian name has always been one that is associated with high-octane glamour, and this range is further endorsement of this, with a series of glamorous dresses in lace and animal prints, in bodycon style. One dress in particular had an amazingly positive reaction when I posted it on my blog, this was the gorgeous red lace dress worn by Kim in the campaign, which I believe will actually help to garner Lipsy a completely new audience, due to its grown-up glamour.

Kourtney Kardashian has  commented, “Kim, Khloé and I are always looking for new ways to keep our collection unique, and give our fans around the world fashion-forward pieces.”Kim added:  “The collection is inspired by the stylish women from around the world that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. This is for those Lipsy girls who have as much fun with fashion as I do.”

The final word on the collection goes to Khloe, who, I have to say is looking incredible in the official shots, putting all her recent heartache behind her. “Whether you are rocking the feathered jacket or one of the leather dresses, there are a million ways to style these pieces, all uniquely stylish,” says Khloe.
