This bicycle, unlike any other sporting equipment fully deserves a place in My Fashion Wish List as this is no ordinary bike. Created in limited numbers it might be the hottest accessory of the summer and it is brought to us by Dolce & Gabbana. The designer duo, Domenico and Stefano are both big lovers of healthy life style hence it is not surprising that they went a step further in promoting sporting activities. The Animalier bicycle reflects the designer brand through and through – from iconic leopard print, to black bell engraved with the logo, to 24k gold branded plate on the leather seat. It is indeed a piece of luxury. The bicycle is designed for ladies only as it features low cut female frame. Style-wise it is very traditional – based on artisan creations it does not have any gears or other fancy modern features. But even the will to pay £1450 for the designer bike will not guaranteethe purchase: the exact number of bikes produced is unknown, but only a handful of stores in major cities around the world will have it on offer. If you are head over heels for it, I suggest you get yourself down to brand’s London boutique asap for more information on availability.
And in case you do purchase it, or indeed if you are just inspired by iconic animal print, there is a whole range of printed accessories to choose from and below are my picks:
- Sunglasses,£150 at SaksFifthAvenue.com
- Blackberry sleeve, £90 at net-a-porter.com
- Belt, £240 at net-a-porter.com
- T-Shirt, £254 at farfetch.com
- iPad Case, £140 at net-a-porter.com
- Scarf, £229 at farfetch.com

I’m slightly excited about Cheryl Cole’s return with her new album. Not because of the music she will be bringing out, but because she is coming back to spot light and I have indeed missed my favourite clothes horse. And that is compliment. Her petite figure and natural beauty allows her to pull off practically anything and makes me (and I am sure many more like me) lust after every single thing she wears.
Last week sneak peak shots of her new video flooded the web and I could not be happier with what she is wearing: mixing up patterns, tropical prints and neon – she is ticking every trend box. Indeed it did not take me long to find pieces she was wearing, and all the fans with money to spend can easily get their hands on the outfit at net-a-porter.com!
On the picture above she is dressed in Finch tropical-print cotton-blend blazer by Altuzarra(£1040), Dolce & Gabbana leopard-print high-wasted bikini briefs (£150) and Brian Atwood Alima neon patent-leather pumps (£670). So if you have £1860 lying around you can steal her style, something that does not happen often with stars in music videos who often get pieces designed just for them.
But of course I would not tempt you with high price items without providing an affordable alternative. I searched the high street for similar pieces and here they are: Topshop tropical floral blazer (£65), Motel high waist hot pants (£20 at Asos) and Office Krazy paving neon heels (£78). Grab an outfit inspire by Cheryl for more affordable £163!

This cute floral jumpsuit is a perfect reminder that we are still in early August and hence have enough time to purchase and wear summery fashion. Floral print is so in this season – just a quick look at some of the spring/summer collections like Dolce & Gabbana or a glance through a fashion magazine prove it.
If you don’t have a floral piece already head to lavishalice.com – it is filled with summery florals in all shapes and forms: from chiffon dresses to skinny jeans. This cut out jumpsuit is £30 and that is relatively expensive compared to the rest of the range making the website a great destination for little mid week shopping therapy that won’t break your bank!

Star print is back. Which is great because I have a perfect star print summer dress somewhere in the depths of my closet. And after hearing that heat wave is back in UK this weekend its time to call in a search team!
This particular star print dress by Dolce & Gabbana is a star on its own. Jessie J appeared in it on the cover of this month’s Cosmopolitan magazine. Fergie of Black Eyed Piece just wore a variation of it to Teen Choice Award. And I was mesmerised by it walking past the brand’s store on Sloane Street. It’s so simple yet will make you stand out. Add a few colourful accessories and you are sorted.
Available at http://www.matchesfashion.com for £780. Would never style it with the same shoes they did on the website though, this dress is not made for simple black courts, even if they are Christian Louboutin simple black courts.
