Well, Fashion-Mommy has just enjoyed a well-earned break which has allowed me to sit and read all the magazines I could find. I’ve literally devoured a diet of fashion for a whole 10 days. And this has given me a perfect opportunity to see the new and key looks some of our favourite fashionista’s have been wearing. The good news is that there are High street buys amongst the looks, as well as investment looks from very exclusive brands.
Here are a few of the looks that kept me sane whilst I was parted from my laptop.
Olivia Palermo is one of the best dressed ladies around, and has a real knack of finding High Street Buys that could be designer. She recently attended The Girls TV series Premiere In New York wearing a Pearl Queen Jacket from French Connection. This glorious jacket is High End High Street, with a price tag of £300, but it is absolutely stunning, and a real investment piece that could be 1920s vintage.
TOWIE star Lauren Pope is not usually on my style radar, but it jumped to boiling point when I spotted her in this amazing Monaco silk tunic from luxury label Mya Blue Beach whilst holidaying with Chloe Sims. This turquoise kaftan is super stylish with a gorgeously embellished neckline. I love the fact that this could easily take you from the beach to the bar. Just imagine it worn over skinny jeans!
My favourite stylish TOWIE lady, Miss Lydia Bright has sported some super looks lately, as well as a chic new haircut. She showed why raspberry is a great shade for blondes in a gorgeous Love asymmetrical maxi dress that you can get for £45. She has also shown continued loyalty to Miss Selfridge by wearing pieces from the Designed By collection. I can no longer find the skirt on the website, but the blouse is still available and would look equally stylish with flared jeans for a 70s retro look.
Another lady raiding the shelves at Miss Selfridge is Tulisa. She was papped wearing a great pair of platform sandals from the new Limited Edition shoe range. Again, there is a definite 70s feel to the collection, and, although not always a fan of Tulisa’s style, I think she looks great on this occasion.
Kelly Brook looked great last year when she was spotted in this New Look playsuit. Although this suit was last seasons, I really like the turquoise one that is very similar, and part of this seasons collection.
Kelly’s limited edition platforms are still available, priced at £59.99, but you could also opt for a lighter version to tie in with the light blue of this playsuit.
