Excitement in the air! For 24 hours only (until noon on Monday) ASOS is having a special Tick, Tock, Shop event with 60% off cult denim and T-shirt brands. And the one brand I am most excited about – the one I just had to share with all of you – is celebrity favourite Wildfox. Established in Los Angeles in 2007 the brand creates vintage-looking pieces inspired by fun, love and friendship – the values close to heart to two childhood friends that are behind the brand’s designs. The success was almost instant: laid back California fell in love with comfy fits and tongue-in-cheek slogans and thanks to celebrity following (it is actually hard to think of any young and hip American celebrity who has not been seen wearing their pieces) that love spread world-wide.
Take a look at my favourite pieces currently on sale and then go to ASOS.com for full range. But hurry up, the stock won’t last long!

It started of with Versace Spring Summer 12 fashion show – tightly fitted gold studded dresses paraded up and down the catwalk. And when Donatella emerged at the end of the show wearing one of those herself fashion world knew this would be a new must have. The first to be caught up in the spread of the micro trend were celebrities – Katy Perry and Nicole Kidman showed off their sex appeal in white creations. But Versace influence on the trend was not over: when collaborating with H&M a much more affordable range of studded figure hugging items emerged and even more people signed up to the trend.
And now those that did not get their hands on Versace or Versace for H&M studded pieces have been given another chance: River Island created a more affordable range of dresses inspired by original Versace designs. I’m in!

In November last year one shoe brand caught my attention – Kandee. And as soon as I bought a pair and wrote a post on these beauties (view it here) I received numerous messages from my friends asking where the purchase them. Indeed there is nothing not to like about Kandee – they are high quality, look like any expensive designer creation but do not cost as much.
The reason why I am talking about Kandee again is a release of their Spring Summer 2012 collection. To tell you the truth this time around a lot of items will be hard to pull off – many would be great for photo shoots and stage costumes but are of questionable utility in daily lives – not many people can look good wearing half neon green/half pink shoes called Apple Sours (see them here). Nevertheless there are a few that deserve a place on my fashion wish list – especially knowing how much I love studs!
- Peanut Butter Crunchy Pumps, £120
- Blue Raspberry Dragee Pumps, £120
- Blue Raspberry Dragee, £180
- Mash’a’mallow, £180

Who does not love discounts? Especially if they arrive so close to Christmas and allow us to purchase amazing Christmas presents for less (or are a perfect addition to our holiday wardrobe). That is why I just had to share awesome news – till 18/12/2011 (this whole weekend) selected Lulu Guinness Lips have 30% discount if you enter code LIPSLULU11 on the check out!
Lulu’s Lips clutches have become iconic – the most successful bag design of the brand. They have been on everyone’s lips (pun intended) – celebrities like Dita von Teese, Katy Perry and Sophie Ellis Bextor were seen wearing one of the many variations of Lips.
Choosing your perfect Lips clutch will be hard – there are just so many colours and textures. So good luck! Visit http://www.luluguinness.com where prices start from £158 (with discount).

Kandee Shoes. If you haven’t yet heard of them – learn this name.
Established in 2010 the aim of the designer Josh Wayman (who is 21 years old by the way, massive oh my god moment) is to create eye-candy shoes, which he has succeeded at doing – every pair is delicious and absolutely fabulous. The brand already has a large celebrity following: Cheryl Cole, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna and Victoria Beckham to name a few. But even though A-listers wear it – the shoes are still accessible (price wise) for the high street lovers.
So ladies, time to add a new name to the wishlist. And a new pair of shoes to our shoe closet (you will probably end up with more though, they are irresistible). Go to http://www.kandeeshoes.com to see the full range.

Scarlett Johansson has been my celebrity style crush for a while. So while checking out one of my favourite ‘as seen on stars’ websites – http://www.mcberry.co.uk I came across the Glamorous Lace Dress section. And a few have been inspired by Scarlett!
Here is my pick – the green lacy strapless number (only my favourite dress shape of all time). Plus its green and lacy which goes very well with A/W 11 trends! Grazia team loves it too and featured it in their magazine. So if you want to boost your star power visit the website where this dress is available at £85.

Lucky me – I’m going on an amazing holiday in two and a half weeks. And since it is still August I am sure I am not alone in searching the web for the best swim suits out there that can make me look better than all my friends who have already taken their summer breaks and brought back tons of pictures to flaunt. Well, I found it!
First of all this summer is all about wearing one piece swim suits. No you can’t get a good tan in them but wow you can look fabulous even if you had a large taste of foreign cuisine the night before. And clearly a one piece swimsuit winner has to be We Are Handsome. Luxurious fabrics, beautiful colours and prints that will make you stand out of the crowd – no wonder celebrities love it! Rihanna was wearing Protector style on her Caribbean holiday and she looked fab!
So this is clearly my choice – The Dutch Printed swimsuit with zip detail, exclusive to http://www.net-a-porter.com that will set you back a mere £210. I can already picture myself looking awesome by the pool somewhere in California…
