Election couture

You can’t step one foot out the door without being plagued by election campaigns nor can we escape the “so who are YOU voting for?” conversation at work.

However there is one fun way to get involved in the general election – by theming your outfit of course.

Poppy Prom Dress

To represent Labour work this red poppy print dress from New Look, it is a bargain at £28.

French Connection Strapless Mini Tulip Dress

If you think Nick Clegg is the man for the job then vote Liberal Democrats and work this French Connection dress for £75 from Asos.com.

Vila Fringe Layer Tunic

Finally, if you’re voting Conservatives then make sure you work this Villa fringed tunic from Oli.com for £40.

Personally, I think I am going to have to vote Lib Dem – I have a bit of a penchant for yellow.

The above dresses do not reflect the oppinions, views or election manifestos of any of the election candidates – so please don’t base your votes on these fabulous dresses.

Topshop Make Up

Yes, it’s official – Topshop have launched a make-up range. 

The range, featuring bright eyeshadows and outrageous lipsticks, will be available in May and is rumoured to sell out quickly.

It is surprisingly cheap with prices from £4 – £12, I have already got my eye on one of the eyeshadow duos.

Fashion at Coachella

Katy Perry Coachella

 

Trust celebs to show us mere mortals how to work festival chic.

The stars showed up in full force at Coachella Festival in LA, a fabulous far-cry from the mud-ridden and rainy festivals of the UK.

Katy Perry’s tribal inspired outfit makes me want to take a mad dash around Monsoon and Accessorize, whereas Kristin Cavallari proved that gladiators and sunglasses are still festival staple looks.

GaGa just loves stationary

Only Lady GaGa could take a $5000 bag and scribble all over it.

After arriving in Japan her royal highness decided to cover her Hermes Birkin bag in Japanese writing.

GaGa, who says money is one of her hatreds, shows us that you don’t need an overpriced bag for style and that you can work harajuku chic by just spending a quid or two on a permanent marker (probably best to go for a cheaper bag though!)

Sex and The City 2: New poster debut

Satc2-exclusive-one-sheet

Like other SATC fanatics I let out a massive scream of excitement when this poster hit the internet.

Not only has the poster reminded fans that the movie is now only a month away but it has also given us another glimpse of what fabulous fashions we can look forward to.

 The sequel sees our favourite girls jetting off to Abu Dhabi and after seeing Carrie work this maxi dress I want to book a Middle Eastern retreat of my own.
