Magic Style… The Harry Potter Premiere

8 Jul

GirlSeeksShoe here.

So the final Harry Potter premiere was last night, and I watched eagerly to see what Emma Watson’s new style savviness would treat us to next. I wasn’t disappointed. While Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) looked rather bizarre in a granny pink Miu Miu dress with an unflattering cut (below), Emma looked gorgeously styled in my favourite dress designer Oscar de la Renta.

Her hair and make-up looked beautifully sophisticated, and she proved just how far she’d come from Hermione’s frazzled image in The Philosopher’s Stone:

My favourite Weasley twins looked rather dashing too:

Unfortunately, Malfoy’s (Tom Felton) arm-candy, didn’t really measure up to his classy villainous look, or the sophistication of his co-stars. Jade Olivia looked more suited to an episode of The Only Way Is Essex, with her orange-hued skin… and was that foundation on her lips?! No, no, no. She should take a leaf out of Emma’s book.

So this is nearly the end. Just a week left until the Harry Potter era closes. I hope the actors do stick around Hollywood for a while. I wouldn’t mind Emma Watson being the next Keira Knightley (she is far less annoying already!).

FBF Friday: Summer Trends 2011

11 Jun

GirlSeeksShoe here.

Anyone who has read a few of my previous posts will know that I adore summer. The smell of sunblock, the sound of lawnmowers, watching the tennis at Wimbledon… everything adds up to that holiday feeling. And from a fashion perspective, some trends are just so quintessentially summer; the trends that could only be worn when the sun is shining on your face as you walk down the street, ice-cream in hand. As much as anything else, fashion (and beauty) trends can define that summer sensation… and here are my top five picks of this years summer trends:

5. Bronzer; Giving you a glow even if you haven’t yet hit the beach, summer is the only time bronzer is truly acceptable… everyone is entitled to a golden blush when the sun is shining and skin is out. This summer bronzers have got that pared down look to make you look truly luminescent:

MAC Surf, Baby! Bronzing Powder – £19

Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder – £23.50

4. Wedges; Given a fashion make-over this summer, wedges are no longer the preserve of rushed mothers and grandmothers in jeans. Yes, they’re comfortable, but this summer they are also very, very stylish.

From left to right: New Look £24.99; New Look £10; River Island £69.99

3. Floral Mini-Skirts; Floral in any form is bang-on-trend at the moment, but a teeny-tiny floral skirt can see through summer picnics and barbecues to evening plays and parties. Add a corset top, some wedges and a pastel blazer and you will be the embodiment of style this summer. Alternatively, add some wellies and a leather jacket and you are festival-ready.

2. Coloured Trousers/Jeans; I am so in love with this trend right now. Add a pop of colour to your outfit with this sherbet-coloured denim marvels.

And my number 1 favourite trend, this summer and every summer:


It suits EVERY skin-tone, comes in a myriad of colours, reminds me of sherbet ice-cream… and it just screams summer. From near-orange, to tangerine, to almost tomato, to pure coral-iscious, the message is clear:

Wear coral, be stylish, love summer.

Benefit CORALista Blush – £23.50

Coral (Orange) Striped Peeptoe Wedge | 213410683 | New Look

New Look Wedge – £24.99

MAC Surf, Baby! Hibiscus Lipstick

Dior Vernis in Psychedelic Orange

Walking on Sunshine…

13 May

GirlSeeksShoe here.

I’m walking on sunshine… and don’t it feel good? Hell yeah!

Summer is here, the sun is out, and you fashionistas know what that means right? Sunglasses are back.

This year we see the return of retro, florals, and the peak of the bright trend. From Gucci to Guess, Ray-Ban to de la Renta, and all the high-street favourites, fashion has your summer eyewear covered. And my favourites are delectably delicious.

Ray-Ban Classic aviator sunglasses 

Classic aviators from Ray-Ban. Timeless and tres chic. £111 from Net-A-Porter.com

Guess Sunglasses - 107637

Guess sunglasses tap into that classy look, and the brown is bang-on-trend. £85 from Vision Express

Medium Cat Eye Sunglasses

There is nothing like a white frame to show the world your retro style. If you’re cool, flaunt it. £14 from Accessorize

Floral Print Flat Sunglasses

Florals are in. Take advantage of the fashion-world embracing granny-style and bag yourself a pair of quirky shades. Because you can. £14 from Accessorize

           Pink Heart Sunglasses

The emergence of florals shows that the trend for brights is almost over. Regress to you childhood whilst you can. On the left; $5.80 from Forever 21. On the right; £7 from PunkyPins.co.uk

The woman who made sunglasses iconic. Audrey’s morning style in Breakfast at Tiffany’s soon came to define the standards of classic style worldwide. So, when the legendary Tiffany’s released their own range of sunglasses… well, an iconic legend met iconic quality.


From left; $220, $430, and $430.  All at Tiffany’s.

As for my own sunglasses, I recently snapped up some gorgeous Oscar de la Renta’s for an absolute bargain.

Classic black and big enough to hide behind; that’s all I need.
