SUMMER : Trends On The High Street…

SUMMER TRENDS TO WATCH OUT FOR...

The shops are packed full of the safari trends at the moment and denim is huge also. The newest denim trend is wearing denim with denim or all over denim! Now i do remember rocking this looks years ago but i dont think i could carry it off now- it was excepted years ago but i think if i threw it on people would either think oh look at your wan shes stuck in the 80,s or look at your wan shes trying that new denim trend and she sucks at it!!!   Ha ha either way i loose so im staying clear of the denim on denim…one peice is enough for me!

Safari is easy to wear you dont have to go to one to look like your there! Simples…..they got all the nude colours in this  trend too which are so in at the moment and you can even team it with a bit of lace!   How lovely….You got your cargo pants which can be worn with high wedges for us wee girls and you can throw on a pair of flat boots for a military/safari look or just a pair of flip flops listen the choice is yours!!! Theres layered tops you can put with them and wasitcoats and vest or lace bodies , this trend is sooo kool…and you would get away with it at all ages too.

Im really happy that cameras were,nt as big years ago as they are now because there would be some serious damaged done to some reputations!!!   lol..

Saying that…..Denim is lovely with floaty tea dresses, little cardis or belly top jumpers and flat boots teamed with knee socks or if your a little daring you can pull those socks up over your knee!!! all very feminine and most of all comfy….  

You have all your long maxi dresses too and you can throw on your denim jacket few bangles and a nice bag and away you go!  PENNYS-TOPSHOP-RIVERISLAND-NEWLOOK are all rocking these trends at the moment and you can mix and match everything up to what you like!  All very affordable and very comfy to wear….i bought a light colour denim jacket with three quater lenght sleeves and short body on river island 2 years ago and i pull it out every spring/summer and get sooo much use out of it with all my dresses and boy shorts and maxi dresses.  I sometimes wear my cowboy boots or a pair of vintage boots (i got for €30 in Twice As Nice down Quay Street,  fab stuff in there girls!,  few years ago they were tow sizes too big for me but i had to have them and seriously i havent taken them off since! )  They stay in my winter and summer wardrobe of clothes all year around) under my long Maxi dress for a bit of a twist and great for going out in the eve for drinks too!

So whatever your styling this summer make sure your comfy in it theres nothing worse then seeing someone in clothes they cant pull off or look uncomfortable in!    Be yourself!    and enjoy …..

Happy Summer….

Festival looks coming soon and animal print styles..( my fav )




Joe Le Taxi Anybody??

 

VANESSA PARASDI

Ive been a long time fan of the beautiful Vanessa Parasdi.  I can still remember her on Top Of The Pops back in 1987.  She was only 14 years old then and had a number 3 in the charts with the famous JOE LE TAXI! That was an excellent position back then compared to now a days!  She was a big musician in her native France and hooked up with the sexy and handsome Lenny Kravitze and made sweet music together for a little while. She had many top Hits with her music in France and continued on the fame train with her modeling for the likes of Chanel Titled CO CO and was was dressed in all black with feathers portraying a bird swinging in a cage this shot was taking by JEAN-PAUL GAUDE. So beautifull…..here it is….

After many many a photo taken of her she ended up with one of the worlds most handsome men in 1998 -i tink we can all agree!- and marrying the guy!!! Not Fair? I hear you….They went on to have two beautiful (of course) children Lily Rose And John Christopher.  They reside in the beautiful South Of France ( i have been here few times and it is a place to go see! if i had my way i would retire here!!!) although owning many a house from all parts of the world! Lucky so and so,s   aha ahem….

She is a true beauty theres no doubting that for one minute!  A photographers dream!!  And a mans fantasy!

But she inspires women all over the world with all of  it and will continue to do so as she has,nt seemed to have aged much at all….   aha ahem i will compose myself here….so….. ive come across a few images that i like of her.. i esp like when she does the boho hippy look as she certainly  can rock that look out!!

“So if your looking for a taxi and a man called joe”  well you,v come to the wrong place because this is a blog about  inspiration and fashion and well …..life……

Clogs!!!!

LATEST TREND FOR SUMMER LOVING!!!!

Every now and then a trend will emerge to which the correct response is: Mother of God, no. Not now, not ever. Even were it a case of being over my dead body, my spirit would find a way of rebelling from beyond the grave.

Thus it is with clogs, which no lesser authorities than Louis Vuitton and Chanel – a plague on both their houses – have earmarked as spring/summer 2010’s next big thing.

This season’s latest shoe fad? It’s clogs. The trend has nothing to do with Industrial Revolution chic, and everything to do with the fact that Chanel is about to stock a pair for upwards of €700. Similarly, Louis ­Vuitton has produced a clog-boot ­hybrid (no doubt soon to be ­nicknamed the “cloot”) and Céline has a wedge with a cloggish vibe about it. It’s no surprise that Alexa Chung – queen of the slightly awkward but very hip shoe – has tuned in early.

Strangely, the clog was conceived of as a protective worker’s shoe, but they’re actually a pretty perilous piece of footwear, as anyone who has worn them knows. Bruised ­ankle bones, frequent tripping and sore toe muscles from gripping on to a rigid wooden sole are all ­inherent dangers.

The way to wear them is:

• Go barefoot for extra grip.

• Team with something either whimsical or aggressively minimal.

• Never attempt a quiet entrance.

• Carry plasters.

• Don’t be tempted by a top that could be confused with a dinner-lady’s tabard.

Platform clog! very high!!
