Cheryl Cole becomes shoe designer!

Cheryl Cole announces exclusive collaboration with Stylistpick.com and the launch of her first capsule shoe collection

Cheryl Cole today announced that she will launch her first capsule shoe collection, in association with Stylistpick.com. Her fabulous and fashion forward new line will launch this December, in time for Christmas.

The collection forms part of a wide collaboration between Cheryl and Stylistpick, which will see her choosing her favourite pieces from the online accessory retailer’s monthly mainline collections and sharing style insights.

Cheryl is the nation’s undisputed style icon and has been voted ‘best dressed’ in every major fashion poll, from Glamour, to Tatler, to Cosmopolitan and graced every leading fashion magazine cover, from Elle to Grazia. And now for the first time the public will be able to share her unique style.

The range will combine Cheryl’s style signature of exquisite glamour with accessible pricing. More than just a name behind the brand, Cheryl will be overseeing every step of the process, from concept to design and packaging. 

In choosing to work with Stylistpick Cheryl was committed to ensuring that all fashion loving young women should be able to enjoy a collection that captures her style and features immaculate quality.

Stylistpick is a new way of shopping for the latest on-trend accessories, combining a personalised styling membership service with the ease of shopping online. It’s easy to use – members complete a fun style quiz to discover their individual style profile. Then each month they receive a personalised selection of new shoes, bags and jewellery to choose from, edited by celebrity stylists, including Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model’s Grace Woodward and TV presenter and journalist Louise Roe.

Chief creative officer Juliet Warkentin commented: “We are thrilled to be working with CherylCheryl is the style icon and is amazingly warm, a quality that has made her the nation’s favourite. We believe that the launch will have a huge fashion impact; establishing fashion’s greatest influencer as a major force in fashion design and further democratising fashion.”

The limited edition capsule collection will launch in December, along with Cheryl’s first favourite Stylistpick selections, guaranteeing British women the perfect Christmas present. More details will follow.

The Look Show

So I’m entering The Look Show AW11 blog competition to be the best blogger in the Universe!! They have asked me why I want to win so here goes!…

Littleladylookbook is a blog for the real girl, I show real fashion and inspiring outfit ideas, all which I would wear myself. From my first little post blogging on Littleladylookbook about Mulberry’s new range during Christmas last year to posting about the latest crazes from fashion week I’ve sure come a long way. I’m sure my readers can vouch that I give them up to date information on the latest trends, new additions to have in your seasonal wardrobe that I know they will love, reviews and information about the latest hot spot boutiques (Why give all the big companies all the credit?!) all as well as little text as possible (If I don’t like reading I’m sure you lot won’t!) plus a few added extras from me to give my blog a more personal touch. How many bloggers can actually say they never take anything off the internet that isn’t theirs and hasn’t been given to them? Not many! I search high and low for the latest fashions to give you!

In less than a year I’ve gained a high profile on Twitter and developed my posts into what readers want – An inspiring picture and a little information – It can go a long way to influencing what a girl wears and how someone feels and that’s what my blog is all about. I even add a mens post from time to time!

Save a seat for me front row and I’ll show you how fashion can be blogged to the real girl!

All You Need Is Love

” Too much of a good thing is wonderful”

Continuing the Battle of the Boutiques, here is another little gem I found!

Free Love Boutique was created by sisters, Joni and Katie Free, opening its doors in October 2005 on the beautiful island of Guernsey.

Each piece from every collection has been individually selected by the girls, who pride themselves on bringing new and exciting labels to Free Love for their valued and loyal customers to enjoy. So, whether it be that little black dress, gorgeous evening gown, sweet summer’s day frock, must-have clutch bag… or the, ‘can’t bear to walk away from’, dream pair of shoes… Free Love holds that something special just for you.

I’ve selected my favourites below!

 

This gorgeous crochet top and printed skirt are perfect for following the summer trend of pastels and feminine style. Show them off with a plain other half such as white trousers or a colour blocked tee and some ‘of the moment’ summer cork wedges.

Pair with: Tea and crumpets.

Darling Willa Top in Taupe £65, Darling Bridgette skirt in Spring Green £49.95.

As seen above, pair this colour block studded dress with a cropped jacket to add a rougher edge. Try a black biker jacket or brown suede style for a different take on the pretty dress.

Pair with: Vampy, kiss me now lips.

Almost Famous Spray Studded Dress in Orange £116.

With its floaty fabric and dainty ruffles, this LBD is the answer to your summer prayers. Light enough to keep cool and stylish enough to stay hot! Pair with bare legs and dainty heels.

Almost Famous Chiffon Pleated collar Dress in Black £122.

 

This large leopard print shoulder bag with patent trim and handles and gold buckle detail would work well with the above blue ruffle dress to add a hint of colour and pattern to a somewhat plain outfit.

Suzy Smith Iridessa Leopard Print Shoulder Bag £75.

This is my all time favourite item from Free Love due to its simplicity and expensive looking design, you can imagine A-Listers strutting the red carpet in it. The nude maxi encapsulates the feminine trend of summer perfectly with the draped fabric and sweetheart neckline.

Wear with: A single row of pearls or gold drop earings. Nothing more, nothing less.

Jarlo Yolanda Maxi Dress £85.

The nautical trend is still as present as ever and with this Henri Lloyd Elena Cardigan in Navy, £78 , you can follow it on through summer and Autumn too.

Wear with: wide legged jeans and a white ruffle top.

Don’t neglect what you think people wont see! Free Love’s ‘Haylie’ chiffon shoe boots in blush are stunning and will show of a great pedicure and glistening tan wonderfully. The peeptoes with sheer rouched upper, featuring a ruffle down the front, are ideal for updating a simple dress this summer, and are perfect for all the summer weddings people are having!

Chinese Laundry Haylie Chiffon Shoes in Blush £80

Free Love captures a girls dream wardrobe in a few items, from the sheer seduction of the peep toe boots to the elegantly draped maxi dress. Everyone needs a bit of free love in their life. Each item works so well with the next, I’m excited to see what the future holds for the Guernsey girls!
