Suki Waterhouse 1960s inspiration at my-wardrobe

One of the hottest new style icons that have emerged this year is über model Suki Waterhouse. The gorgeous blonde is the epitome of the 1960s ‘dollybird,’ with her thick blonde bangs, dark eyebrows and her pale pink lips. Even her name has a 60s feel, a hybrid of Suki Poitier, a tragic 60s model girlfriend of Brian Jones, and Keith Waterhouse, 1960s playwright extraordinaire.

Suki has a wardrobe to match her swinging sixties name, favouring pastel mini skirts and dresses, white kid boots and tights, belted trenchcoats a la Catherine Deneuve and pink, lots of pink. This just makes her the perfect icon for this season, with my-wardrobe just filled with 1960s inspired styling from Marc Jacobs, MSGM and Goat. From block colour to graphic prints, short dresses, to the most amazing printed trapeze style coats, my-wardrobe is bringing the sixties bang up-to-date – just like Suki, in fact.

Happy 10th Birthday Harvey Nichols Birmingham!

Today is a very special day. Harvey Nichols is celebrating 10 wonderful years of providing its supreme style to Birmingham. Tonight will see a very special party to celebrate the birthday, with the  glitterati from fashion, television/radio and sport in attendance. I will bring you lots of photographs from the event, along with a super party video. But, in the meantime, to whet your appetite, I thought it would be nice to look at my picks from the current Harvey Nichols collection in order to show just why this store is so important to the second city.

Fashion-Mommy’s Picks from the Nicks!

How beautiful is this vintage  inspired dress  from Lily Allen’s ‘Lucy in Disguise’ Label. With an exquisite glitter bodice, this is just a supremely gorgeous gown that has echoes of 1940s Hollywood.

Nothing screams Autumn/Winter more than tartan. Nothing  screams McQueen more than tartan. This McQ dress was one of  my favourites from the Fashion Night Out fashion show.  I just love its flirty shape.

This Michael Kors dress is just amazing. Shiny, body con and super sexy,  this is the sort of dress that is  just MADE for Christmas parties!

A definite highlight of the year for me  was the Markus Lupfer trunk show. I’m a huge fan of his designs, and this  jumper is still the absolute top of  my wishlist.

Harvey Nichols has a reputation for new and exciting brands. I just love the fun of Wildfox, and as a teenage grunge fan, I just can’t resist the ‘Teen Spirit’ top that is a cheeky take on the Nirvana legend.

Harvey Nichols has an enviable selection of  handbags,including a great range of  Marc by Marc Jacobs  bags.I love the vibrant  shade of the Voyage Regine Hobo.

A style classic that was heavily in rotation during Fashions night out was the McQueen  skull scarf. I’m  rather  partial to this purple shade.

Charlotte Olympia is my current shoe fetish. I’m wearing a very good high Street copy of her Paloma satin pumps for the party, but that won’t stop me  lusting after the real thing.

More 40s chic comes courtesy of Michael Kors in the shape of this beautiful coat. That collar  alone makes this a wardrobe must have.

My final pick (10 for the 10 of course!) is this fabulous Assemblage bath  and  shower gift set from Bodhi. Harvey Nichols introduced  me to this brand through a goodie bag, and I don’t mind admitting that I am now hooked on the fragrances, especially Ylang Ylang Incensa, and  the way they  leave you skin feeling.

So there you have it. My top ten choices for 10 glorious years. Have a wonderful day and here’s to the next ten years.
