The Fashion Audit: Louise Gray Barbie, Dior Palette, The Clothes Show Live and You-wellery
What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...
Monday 19 November 2012
We love: Louise Gray Barbie
Not just any old doll, this particular Barbie is a one-off creation by British designer Louise Gray; dressed head-to-toe in a look from her spring/summer show, even the backcombed hair and Tatty Devine earrings are runway replicas.
We’re not sure about: You-wellery
Personalised jewellery is not a new phenomenon, but the newest take on the trend is to dangle your name from your ears, or even someone else’s, à la Beyoncé’s Obama earrings.
From £46, jewellerypersonalised.co.uk
We’re buying: LN-CC.com sale
Not that we need much of an excuse to shop, but introduce the word “sale” into the mix and we’re an unstoppable force. The mid-season sale at LN-CC.com includes investment pieces such as these Maison Martin Margiela boots with a sizeable discount.
Boots, were £555, now £333; LN-CC.com
We can’t wait for: The Clothes Show Live
Now in its 24th year, the annual Clothes Show Live is preparing to take place in Birmingham with its usual mix of fashion, beauty and celebs. Any place that combines shopping, champagne bars and JLS is worth a visit, in our opinion.
7-11 December, clothesshowlive.com
We’re saving up for: Dior Palette
Just in time for the party season, Dior’s Grand Bal Palette includes two metallic eyeshadows, two lip-gloss shades and an inky-black eyeliner, all in a sleek gold case. Make-up doesn’t get more glamorous.
£60, Dior; available nationwide.
