*Hoorah, I’ve finally had time to blog!! As I’m sure all you fellow bloggers know, balancing both a full-time job and a blog can be quite the challenge. Throw in organising a change of job and a new flat in a new City and you find you’re even more pressed for time! But I’m happy to say I eventually found some free time to do what I like to do best- talk fashion!*
I heard a crazy statistic on the news today (please don’t ask me to remember the exact statistic as I heard it not long after I’d woken up very early, let’s just say it made me listen), that we all spend a HUGE part of our day trawling through various apps and websites on our phones. Whether its Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or the Daily Mail showbiz app (guilty pleasure of course), we are constantly aware of everything going on around us. This suits me fine as I get to nose on what everyone is wearing!
This week my celebrity style crush has to go to Miss Rochelle Humes of Saturdays girl band fame. She brings a whole new meaning to the term ‘yummy mummy’! At the start of the week she appeared on TV wearing a very on-trend pink PVC pencil skirt. When Lady GaGa wore her own pink PVC skirt a couple of years ago, little did she know that her ‘out-there’ look would eventually catch on for the mainstream market! Spotted on other celebs including Kim Kardashian and some of the Towie girls, these skirts are incredibly statement. Be prepared to dazzle onlookers with the shine for a start! Wear with a cropped top and heels in the evening, or teamed with cute knitwear for a more casual look. Why not invest in a stunning statement necklace too, just like Rochelle’s pretty flower one. So jealous of that girl! If you’re looking to pocket a PVC skirt off the high street, ASOS is the place to look.
And for her appearance at the Pride of Britain Awards alongside fellow Saturday band mates and husband Marvin, Rochelle took the crown for best dressed girl-band member in her simply beautiful nude embellished floor length gown. This rather ethereal dress teamed with gothic lips, a loose plait and metallic clutch looks amazing I think! Embellishment is always en vogue (see my previous blog post on embellishment at LFW 13), and the trend is set to stay with designers including Christoper Kane and Burberry using it heavily in their new collections. River Island have some lovely embellished designs- I absolutely love this dress shown below. So well done Rochelle, you can have 100 house-points for your fashion efforts this week! And I’ll give myself a pat on the back for finding some time to blog!
