"Step into Christmas"

So.... in the words of Sir Elton John lets welcome Glam Rockette....
"Step into Christmas
Let's join together
We can watch the snow fall forever and ever
Eat, drink and be merry
Come along with me
Step into Christmas
The admission's free"

70s glitter boots - inject a little sparkle to a pair of ultra tight skinnies
WOW!!!!! - Team with a clashing opaque pair of tights for real 'stardust' style

Stunning cover up to all outfits

Gucci sexes up the 70s use of fur and guarantees head turning action with vibrant, ultra hot colours highlights

Christmas trend launch

And so its that time again, as mid-season sales launch and half term brings students in by the mass - we enter a night shift stint but how exciting at the prospect of launching three new trends ready for the Christmas season, fresh looks, creative styling and an inspiring new shop floor......let the merchandising begin. 

Bavaria takes all florals and stripes with huge emphasis on the favourite winter styling tip - layering rather than colour stories. Princess of Darkness moves Glam Underground on in an extremely dark, mysterious and sexy way whilst Deco Grunge focusses on texture and Deco inpsired prints in a much more muted pale colour palette. Enter Glam Rockette - a Ziggy stardust come Elton John influenced statement trend - high in colour, bright in sequins and all that glitters - extremely OTT. 

Happy new trend shopping :)

Moodboards and outfit styling to follow :)

Under the sea

Karl Largerfeld never fails to impress and WOW what a show/performance in Paris. The Grand Palais was transformed into an outstanding 'under the sea' setting, crisp white sea shapes, corals, sea horses and shells. Elegant shades of pastel colours graced the runway with great detailing to line and texture (very reminiscent of fish scales). AMAZING!!!!!!!

Fabulous holographic effects from the sequins and the lighting

Great bulbous silhouette and what perfect texture to re-create the intricate detailing of fish scales

Idol of the month

Showing everyone how to rock shorts and brogues......Pixie Lott

Looks of the day

Still loving the denim shorts :)

Cute black bow really feminises the outfit

Burgundy is the new black!!!!!

The magic of accessorising

An outfit becomes 'styled' through the use of accessories, the power of a clashing shoe can transform a mundaine black dress, a show-stopping bag becomes the highlight of a jeans and tee shirt outfit and an array of jewellery turns boring into WOW!!!!!!

LOVE the contrasting bright green socks

Its all about the socks

Polka dot against polka dot is really effective
