2011 is all about bright coloured jeans

I was in Zara a few weekends ago and was instantly drawn to the collection of brightly coloured jeans they had for the 2011 spring/summer collection.

I was going to try on either the bright red or jungle green pairs however as the store was really busy I left without trying them on. I had put the jeans to the back of my mind until I saw this picture of Kim Kardashian rocking a pair of Royal blue J Brand jeans. Ohhh, I just love these blue jeans!

These J brand jeans also come in a bright red, yellow and pink and are retailing for around £175 a pair.
I have my eye on a Royal blue and a bright red pair to see me through the summer months!
I've been a big fan of J Brand jeans for a while now as they are a great fit on me and always feel so soft and comfy on.


If you are more of a savvy saver then check out these similar jeans from Zara. They are available in red, blue, green, yellow, pink and orange and at £19.99 each you can afford to invest in one of each colour!

Vintage Chanel

I just love vintage pieces. When I wear something vintage my imagination runs wild with wonders of where it came from?.....who had it?.......was it loved and treasured?

Vintage Chanel has to be on most peoples wish list. Genuine vintage Chanel pieces are really hard to find and when you do find something you love, get it as the value of it will always go up and up when the years go by.

The vintage Chanel handbags are currently selling for more than the new seasons handbags.
My Chanel handbags I got around 2 years ago are now selling for over £400 more than what I paid for them back then. Each year they seem to go up by around £200 so if you want one now, don't wait too much longer as the prices will continue to rise and rise as time goes by.

Here are some of the beautiful vintage Chanel pieces I have recently come across:

How beautiful and special is this Chanel bottle holder:-

Made with a delicate gold toned chain and with the leather inter-laced detailing as seen on the handles of the bags this really is a little treasure.Not sure how my bottle of Evian water would look in this though!

The best of the Jersey Dresses

Jersey dresses are just perfect as they are so comfortable to wear and are super stylish.
From tank dresses to strapless dresses, i've selected some of the best jersey dresses that are out there now:-

Alice & Olivia tank dress
Camilla & Marc bustier dress
Karina Grimaldi long tank dress
Wilt tank dress
Rachel Pally long strapless dress
 Rachel Pally long cut out dress
Young, Fabulous & Broke dress
Rachel Pally mini dress
Indah Macrame mini dress

All of these beautiful dresses will see you from a summers day picnic in the park to a candle-lit dinner on the terrace by simple changing your shoes from gladiator sandals or wedges to ankle boots or high pump heels and changing your boho style bangles to a delicate jewels.

Block this way

When investing in your summer footwear, make sure you go for something with a chunky block heel. Give your skinny heels a well deserved rest and get on the chunky heels, not only do these look great, you've got no chance of getting these heels caught in a drain grill on the street!

Go for either an open-toe sandal or ankle boot with a chunky heel as they will look great with everything from your jeans to your pretty summers dress.

Standing Tall

I've been hunting for the perfet black ankle boot and I just love these from the Burberry Prorsum 2011 collection:

 These ankle boots are of a leather and suede mix and are wrapped up nicely with the over-sized buckles.
What's perfect about these ankle boots is that they will look gorgeous with simple jeans or will give your pretty, floaty summer dress that edgy feel. 

Check out how gorgeous these boots look on Rachel Bilson at the Burberry show last month:

The perfect honeymoon bikini

For my honeymoon I can't see myself wearing a "just married" or "mr & mrs" doned bikini however I could see myself wearing this cute "tied the knot" bikini by Tara Matthews. 
This romantic white bikini has a gold cord-embellished heart detail on the front and the back of the bikini bottoms are finished with a "tied the knot" cord motif.
I think this bikini set is pretty and far from being cheesy like some of the wedding themed bikinis out there today.
This set is exclusive to and will set you back £240. 

What can I say, a special day requires a special bikini for your honeymoon!
