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!
It’s all about squeaky clean girliness with these looks from the Fearne Cotton Catwalk collection available at Very
Pretty, Feminine and geeky chic. Fearne Cotton launched her SS’11 Fearne Cotton Catwalk collection in January for Very.co.uk
What could be more geek chic than bows, headbands and white socks? This look is all about making geek look chic and up to date with new trend led pieces. The girly combination mixed in with the rebel-esque platforms, dirty socks and green nail polish is what makes it unique and oh so cool.
Here the same look is combined with pretty pattern detailing on the hem of the dress which was big at SS11 Fashion Week with designers such as Hermione de Paula bringing prints to life on swishing hems.
The feminine cloud splattered print on this dress, the rose detail heels and perfectly positioned bow work so well in contrast with the edgy tattoo and dirty socks. The look rebels against normal pristine girly trends and reminds me of a days play in the fields with her fresh young look – A look I’d like to see more of.
This look is more polished than the others with a simple shift/wrap dress you could wear for work too – with the underskirt showing slightly you could take this covered up sexy time look to night too by adding a clutch and heels.
And here is the creator herself Fearne Cotton in a VERY good look.
Break out into the world of the garden and all things natural.
Take inspiration from River Island…
The range includes floaty lace pieces in pretty peach colours, low-cut floral dresses and tops for the less endowed, high neck 70’s inspired daisy dresses reminiscent of the Twiggy days and Missoni inspired tribal tunics.
Add a floppy hats and your look will ooze money. LLLB
For Spring Summer 2011 the Mulberry design team took the inspirations of romance and flowers and channelled them into the Flowerbed Dress.
The flower phenomenon has come back bolder and brighter than ever before this SS11, playing on nature’s extremes.
Whether it’s dresses, skirts, tops or accessories, mixing combination’s of colours, prints and designs is key to this trend. Key colours to look out for would be either bold and bright yellows, oranges or reds and in the ditsy designs look out for pastels of blue and green hues. Compliment your figure by going for larger prints if you’re curvy or smaller prints if you have a more petite frame, but this season anything goes!
I would love to see this Mulberry design as a more affordable high street version! LLLB
It’s getting warmer!!
Is it time to get the floral skirts out yet?…I think so!
Our new Spring obsession?
No longer the trend of grannies everywhere the floral skirt has made its way into our shops and wardrobes. Rather than make your top half the centerpiece, veer downwards and mix up your look a little. I love this skirt pulled high and nipped in with a tan belt and a plain white vest top. Try it now with biker boots and light cardigans and later with gladiator sandals or light wedges.
And if a full length skirt is not your thing, try a tiered ra-ra skirt, a body con style or a bubble hem design.
Wear with …
… Eclipse gold chain necklace from Monsoon.
