The Emilio Pucci Beach Towel

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

emilio-pucci-orhidea-print-beach-towel.jpgAccessories are a key part in the overall beach chic look so it’s important to accessorize well.

So, you’ve got the bikini, the sun cream, the beach bag and the shades now you need the towel. Emilio Pucci just happens to have created an ultra chic Orchidea Print Beach Towel which is ‘so’ St Tropez. The multi coloured towel has a block colour boarder and is plain white on the underside. Wear an electric blue bikini like the Diane Van Furstenberg love know bikini I mentioned in the previous blog or go for other colours shown on the towel to match and compliment.

Get your Emilio Pucci towel now at Net-A-Porter for £140.

Bikini’s Are Back

Diane Von Furstenberg Love Knot BikiniNothing gets me in the mood for summer more, than seeing the swim wear option on my favourite clothing websites.

The January holiday sales are in motion and all I can think about is what bikini shall I invest in this year (a new bikini is an annual shopping ritual). I headed to Net-A-Porter for its fantastic line up of swimwear this season and I am impressed and in love. This Diane Von Furstenberg bikini has caught my eye. Turquoise is a great colour to go for when showing of that tan and the cute love knot details are a lovely top off. The bikini has a self tie top – excellent for comfort and the bottoms have skinny sides which can be quite flattering.

Get your Diane Von Furstenberg Love Knot Bikini at Net-A-Porter, priced at £118.

Anthropologie – USA

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

anthropologie.jpgOk, so I’m going American shopping crazy right now! But I just can’t help envying some of the fashions from the designers and stores over there. I’m thinking Rebecca Taylor, Victoria’s Secret, Kidson, Fred Segal and Anthropologie.

Yes Anthropologie, a store you may have heard of if you’re a fan of The O.C, because many of the clothes worn on the show came from there. With smart, sophisticated and stylish décor, Anthropologie is welcoming to the fashion savvy. Sadly they do not ship to the UK so visit Anthropologie to locate your nearest store when you next visit the US. It does not disappoint. I you get a chance, whilst you’re checking locations, view the collection too. I got some lovely cute floral cardigans and a lovely evening dress when I went to visit.

Going Away This Winter?

Monday, October 8th, 2007

ASOS BikiniAutumn and winter is the worst time to shop for bikinis as the stores are all stocking winter woollies, however there are still some fantastic bikini’s available from popular fashion companies that are perfect, as they are normally on sale. Take this Chloe bikini as seen on Coleen McLoughlin available at www.asos.com. The bikini is small enough to avoid extreme tan lines, can either be worn as a halter neck or with shoulder straps and is available in five different colours, brown, black, pink, blue and white. The Chloe metallic logo can be seen on the back of the bikini bottom and there is metallic stitching on the trim.

The Chloe bikini was originally £85 and is now only £48 from ASOS so go get yours in time for sun, sea and sand.
