Dazzle in denim

After watching a programme on BBC3 about super brands and how they are so popular. I have rekindled my love for denim. I may have to hunt out my denim jeans stashed in the back of my wardrobe. For months my fave bottom garment has been leggings, they're just so comfy and versatile. But, things are going to change, because I am going to wear and love denim this Summer!

And to go with this wonderful Summer denim you ask? No other than brown leather chunky heels. My favourite has to be these beauties from ASOS. They will set you back for £75.00. But they are lovely and would really sass up any old denim.

I am so so so into clutch bags at the moment. However for as long as I can remember I've never owned one, yes, SHOCK HORROR! I always felt they would be a nuisance on a night out. But I have changed my views and would love a bag to clutch and wave whilst jigging after a few glasses! so here are some of my fave...

I love these clutches (if only!) The first one is a wooden bag by French Connection retailing at £125. The second is a Daria Mulberry clutch retailing at £415.

These two i fell in love with as soon as i saw them. I've been looking at straw bags through out the start of this Summer and this by far is my fave. They are both by Anya Hindmarch Ipanema. LOVE LOVE LOVE Now i need the pennys to buy!!

The trousers below were made by myself, havn't worn them myself yet though! I love the fabric (scraps from my mums sewing box) i just fell in love with it! However i made them just before they began to get so popular on the high street, they seem to be everywhere now! These ones are from the 'Shanghai' collection at Topshop and they retail at £45.00. I love this print also.

As we are talking about 'Shanghai' as a great style this Summer. I have taken the middle east into my own hands and created a few looks for a recent project. I took a trip to Dubai in April and thought it necessary to take inspiration from primary resources, such as pictures and create a 'look'. These are the final looks...

The flared trousers above were made by me I will psot more of my creations soon...

Ok, I am LOVING Topshops new collection, 'Shanghai'. It's a beautiful mix of oriental meets English summer rose. It elopes both high fashion and the relaxed air of the continental. These shorts are one of my fave pieces. They retail at £32.00. Many of the pieces include flower patterns, this is an essential attribute for this season, espechially if you can't make it abroad. You can have a little piece of the tropical sun in your wardrobe! PERFECTO!
