Boutique Chic: I Heart Brittique


I was introduced to this online boutique by fellow blogger, Dream Sequins last month and I've finally got round to sharing this fantastic revelation with you all. We all know of the success of Matches Fashion and Net-A-Porter, well these giant online fashion retailers now have a little bit more competition in the style stakes...

Introducing Brittique - an uber stylish and fresh online shop with the very best of new, fashion-forward designers bred from British soil. Think Hannah Marshall, Biona Castana and Katie Tailyour, all cleverly collected under one virtual roof.

The website has the magazine edge of MyWardrobe.com but Brittique is far more minimal and intimate than those aforementioned. I absolutely adore it and my wish list is completely out of control, I dare you to visit the site and not fall in love.

Summer Style: The Smart Maxi

Maxi dresses are truly this Summer's staple, so for me finding a dress with versatility is the key. This 70s inspired number from Marks and Spencer is just the kind of Maxi that you can wear for an interchangeable look.

The Smart Maxi

This dress has gorgeous draping detail at the top and the draw-string belt helps to nips in the waist nicely. I especially love the bare arms for added sex appeal without cleavage overkill - great for those of us who aren't big busted.

In the right shade, grey can be a fantastic hue for Summer - I'd match it with sassy lime green to liven the look or pair the dress with soft metallic greys to add depth. Plus with this colour choice, the dress will work just as well in Autumn. Now that's a smart way to wear the Maxi dress this season don't you think?

Like the look? Here's where to get it:
1. Garden Party Pleated Shoulder Bags by Karen Millen in Lime and Grey
£89.95 available at ASOS.
2. 70's grey maxi dress, Marks and Spencer, £59
3. Late nights platform grey patent shoes, Office, £80
4. Leather Beaded Star Flat Sandal, ASOS, £24.75

Fashion Illustrated: Emily Blunt in Vanity Fair

Emily Blunt in Vanity Fair 1

Emily Blunt is a very lucky girl, the British actress who starred in The Young Victoria and The Devil Wears Prada just oozes sophistication in Vanity Fair's May edition. This photo shoot is absolutely stunning; it's so 19th century indulgent with adorning garments from haut couturers Gaultier Paris, Chanel and Christian Lacroix, not to mention plenty of handsome gentry. Jealous? Moi? Well, Yes.

Here are my favourite shots from the feature published last month.

Label Watch: Cleo B Footwear

Cleo B Shoes

Exciting news! Cleo Barbour, the footwear designer who has created shoes for the likes of Georgina Goodman and Nicholas Kirkwood is launching her debut collection entitled Cleo B.

How amazing are these designs? Majestic colours, stylish adornment and fabulous shape. Her collection already features 20 different styles that are bang on trend for next season and the uber sexy Blue Bird is at the top of my Autumn/Winter wish list.

Ms. Barbour promises her collection will balance comfort and practicality with a fashion forward edge and distinctive style. Looking at these beauties, she's certainly got the style part down, only time will tell whether she pulls off practicality too. Stockists will be unveiled at the official launch date in June, everything else is a bit hush-hush at the moment, but I'll keep you posted.

It was so hard to choose my favourites, but I've managed to narrow it down to my top three.
Below is my pick of the best:
1. Blue Bird
2. Paradise
3. Saxony

Visit www cleob.com to see more of her designs.
