Miss Selfridge put the word out about their Denim Bar, I saw the word customise and I knew come hell or high water I had to be there. Give me the chance to customise something and we will be friends for life! The lovely Miss Selfridge girlies had set out a wide array of denim for us to choose from – shorts, jackets, jeans, skirts; along with a truck load of studs and trimmings sourced from India! The girls from Sew Over It were on hand to help with the cutting and sewing on of trimmings. I initially picked up a jacket to stud but after assessing the studs I went for a pair of 80s “black” (grey) shorts; what I really wanted was the leopard print jeans but they would look like Capri pants on my legs (boo-hiss).

I opted for the gold star studs and went crazy! I like to call the newly customised shorts “Gold Star for Effort”! As well as the Denim Bar, we also got to see the Summer collection that’s full of digital prints, pretty florals, neons and metallics; the collection is due to drop into stores in the next couple of months.

Here’s the result:-

Mint Green Scarf, Alexander McQueen; Fuchsia silk shirt, Topshop; Purple leather jacket, Camden Market; Black Skinnies, Dorothy Perkins; Suede Wedges, Miss Selfridge.

To be perfectly honest I wish I could’ve chosen the pic myself as I’m sure there were far better…but anyhoo.

I NEED YOU *points finger*

Miss Selfridge AW 2010/11

A couple of weeks ago Miss Selfridge showed their AW 2010/11 collection to a selection of bloggers. It’s the best collection I’ve ever seen from Miss S, it’s really come into it’s own.

The Collection is made up of 4 main parts Gothic Glam, Hippy Luxe, Simplicity, and Winter Pastels.

“Gothic Glam evokes the dark and edgy side of the fashion mood whilst still maintaining romance. Sculptured silhouettes in velvet, chiffon and lace with sheer detailing and sequins enhance the femininity of the collection”

“Hippie Luxe – Stepping through the looking glass, this collection marries the fashion sensibilities of London’s bright young things in the 1970s. Layering with paisley print smock dresses, loophole knitwear, gilets and faux fur coats creates that new boho feel with an updated edge in darker hues for AW10.”

“Simplicity – Encapsulating the monochrome trend, with touches of white, cream, and dusky pink, Simplicity, works in texture, sparkle and girlishness into the surfaces. From the look of the trousers to the proportions of the princess coat in camel trimmed with black brocade are perfect wardrobe staples.”

“Winter pastels combine delicate beading with faux fur statements. Nude shifts are edged with silver beading and teamed with dramatic capes and coats. For evening, draping is key as empire line fishtail maxi dresses are embellished while the butterfly sequin baby doll dresses add to the romantic look.”

Butters the fashion dlogger couldn’t resist being “papped”, she said ‘forget the shoes, what about me?!’ So here she is…
