Monthly Poll: April 2014

New month means a new monthly poll and this month I though I'd focus on the trends of the current season.

I've picked a few of my favourite trends for you to choose from, however remember you can enter your own by clicking other!

The results are in for March's monthly question and the results provided a pretty conclusive result.

With a phenomenal 69% of the votes, Crocs have taken the crown of the worst fashion trend of the past, present and future.

Brand Focus: Kate Moss X Topshop S/S14

After a two week break from blogging, it only felt natural to return at the release of Kate Moss' S/S14 Topshop collection. For months Topshop have teased and with a purposefully poorly lit Vogue editorial, featuring the lady herself, it was clear that details of the collection were under lock and key. However, today we were finally put in the know with the collection is not set to disappoint. 


Staying true to Kate's personal style and her previous Topshop collections, pieces have a boho, vintage style with key items including a floaty blouse and tunic dresses. Kate's signature printed day dresses are back and with subtle yet unique prints for the perfect summer outfit. In keeping with S/S key trends, wide leg trousers are featured as well as matchy matchy prints and fringed details. The finishing touches are also included with a selection of three silk scarves, each with a stunning vintage style print. 


Whilst the collection overall is stunning, I do find the abundance of gold party style dresses and statement jackets slightly odd for a S/S collection. There seems to be a great emphasis on the night looks within the collection and as a result Kate's tea dresses have decreased in numbers and statement blouses are scarce. Whilst these pieces are stunning within their own right, I feel they may have been more at home within an A/W collection or at a decreased number for the S/S collection. Nevertheless, this collection is set to follow the trend of its predecessors and sell out instantly! 


The collection's prices are yet to be revealed, however ways to shop the collection have increased. Whilst you can still purchase the collection on Topshop's website and in selected stores, you now can also purchase through net-a-porter and for American shoppers, Nordstorm online and in selected stores.

The collection is set to launch on the 30th April. 

Check out the full collection below and let me know what items are on your wishlist!

Special Post: I'll be Back Soon...



I'm currently struggling with the problem of too much to do and too little time to do it. Rather than desert the blog, I thought I would take an official break from blogging for a week or two to get myself back into a routine. 

Once back I will be updating the blogs, at the moment the additional pages are unfinished and I will make sure the blogs are fully complete. 

Furthermore, I will getting more involved in the social media side of the blog. I am currently a newbie to social media, with me sticking to the simple texting method of interacting with friends. 

I'm sure that after a small break to get myself organised and into a routine I will be back with more inspired content and will have a lot to blog about! 

Thank you for your support and I will see you all soon...

Rob the Bank Wishlist: Maxi Gorgeous



Raid the Piggy Bank Wishlist: Pink Lady 2


Purchase of the Week: Trends Galore!

Primark Gingham Midi Skirt, £12

One skirt but oh so many trends! I first saw this skirt a few months ago when writing a piece about Primark's spring pieces and it became a favourite straight away. After watching what seemed like every blogger show theirs off, my Primark finally got the beauty in and I snapped it up straight away! 

The skirt is gorgeous. The pink is the perfect shade and the gingham print is nice and not picnic blanket-esque. The midi style is not as full as the current trend, but is nice and flippy for the day. 

I will be pairing mine with a crisp white, sleeveless shirt and plimsolls for a smart look with a casual injection.
