Thanks “Fashion Foot” for sharing this! Great Blog! Must Read! x

The Fashion Foot

When we think of Forever 21 the first words that usually come to mind are affordable and trendy fast fashion! It is probably one of the only stores we can stop in to find a fashionable top for under $15 dollars! Nevertheless, Forever 21 usually isn’t the first place we think to shop when it comes to quality footwear. This past week Forever 21 launched the Premium Leather Collection, featuring 100% genuine leather shoes in the most cutting edge silhouettes and styles! The line features cutout detailing, metallic tints, and intricate buckles in ten different designs ranging from $49-$79 dollars. All the premium collection footwear is available for purchase and online in the United States, with further expansion into international Forever 21 stores at the end of the month.  Whether this will turn out to be a positive or negative factor for the retailer is still up in the air…

Pretty in PINK!!!


I was out this afternoon with a girlfriend for some quick retail theory, when we dropped into TopShop for a look. It’s still August but stores are quickly turning in there high rise denim shorts and crop tops in exchange for tweed coats and cashmere jumpers.


But what caught my eye was the gorgeous hues of rosy pinks that flushed the upper level of the store. Could this be the colour of the season (Autumn/Winter) I think so!!!


Image from (

Vogue is saying “designers drenched the autumn/winter 2013-14 collections in a warm rosy glow”. Fashion reports are saying pink is the colour of the season! I guess we’ll be seeing plenty more of these gorgeous rosy hues.

Look out girls! 😉

Summer 2013 bikini craze!

High waisted bikinis!!! Yay or Nah?


This summer has been like no other, the sun has graced us with its presence and seems to be staying longer than expected. Unlike most UK summers this summer has definitely called for tiny tops, pretty dresses and over the edge summer fashions!

But there’s one trend that’s grabbed the attention of many fashion lovers. The high waisted bikini is here and making its mark on both the catwalks and beaches from coast to coast.

Girls everywhere can be seen wearing this vintage inspired look, but how flattering is this look?

Celebrities of all sizes have been spotted rocking this look.


TOWIE’s Lucy Meckenburgh is spotted posing in a recent photo shoot with a very sexy rendition of the vintage look while Beyonce flaunts a colourful pick from her H&M collection. Image

 I think its safe to say no matter what your size you can make this bikini work but like all swimsuits the key is to try it on before purchasing! and remember you wear the bikini DON’T let it wear you! 😉 x


What do you all think about this trend? Is it staying or will it fade as quickly as parachute pants? 🙂
