Close your eyes and imagine what really cool urban fashion looks like right now. (Now open them and carry on reading.) Nowadays the coolest items out there are covered in studs, are pastel, have a bit of dip/tie dye thing going on and are either cropped or totally oversized (perfect length and fit are so not in). And surprise surprise there is just the brand that this season has put all of those elements together and created the most perfect on trend denim collection ever. Meet The Ragged Priest.
I noticed the brand last season – wool jumpers patched up with studded leather, dark colours and a lot of denim looked interesting. But it was not until a few months ago, once revealing S/S12 collection Ragged Priest exploded – all the cool girls in town are wearing it and our favourite celebrity crushes are promoting the brand world wide (think about studded pieces Rihanna and Jessy J wore recently and chances are they were created by this brand).
But the coolness does not stop there – each piece starts off as a vintage items that is transformed to its new look (you can so steal some of the creative ideas for DIY fashion) making the exact size/colour/pattern more or less unique. And the prices are totally cool as well – completely in the high street range despite being way cooler (pardon my slight obsession with how cool this brand is).
So if you like my picks, check out the whole range at their online boutique. 1. Candy Striper Shirt, £45
2. Albino Sweatshirt Crop, £45
3. Bon Bon Gilet, £65
4. Gnarly Denim Jacket, £90
5. Limited Edition Shorts, £95
6. Toxic Waste Shorts, £40
7. Apple Jack Shorts, £65

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.
