Alexa Chung loves her Topshop 'Jamie' pink jeans!


Alexa Chung loves her Topshop MOTO pink 'Jamie' skinny jeans! On all three occassions (so far) that she has worn them, she keeps the top half to a muted dark shade, to keep the attention on her jeans. 

She was picture in New York (above, left) hailing a cab, pairing her jeans with a dark knitted jumper over a white shirt with turned-up sleeves. She kept her accessories neutral, with a small beige crochet holdall, pale brogues, and dark shades. 

She wore the jeans again, this time at the airport, with a vintage band tee, cross-body black quilted Chanel bag, cat-eye sunglasses, and Russell & Bromley lace up boots. On this occassion she added a slick of red lippie.

To complete the transformation from day-to-night, Alexa last wore her jeans to an event, paired with a navy polka-dot shirt, loose-fitting black blazer, black lace-up booties, and the same Chanel cross-body as before. 

Alexa is known to continuously re-wear items of clothing that she loves, so I'm sure these jeans will be making many more appearances in the near future. 

Which look do you prefer? And how would you style the jeans? Let me know!

You can buy Alexa's jeans here, (and in many other colours) £40

Who wore it better? January Jones vs. Pixie Geldof


'X-Men: First Class' and 'Mad Men' actress January Jones was spotted (excuse the pun!) in these Topshop palazzo pants recently, while running errands in LA. She kept them as the focal point of her outfit by just adding a plain black top, a cropped denim jacket, brown tortoiseshell sunglasses and a black patent Doctor's bag. 
British 'model' and daughter of Bob, Pixie Geldof, also owns these trousers but chose a different approach to styling them. She teamed hers with the matching polka-dot shirt, also from Topshop, black suede platform pumps, a long silver crucifix and a small black bag. 

I'm really not a fan of how either of these ladies styled their pants, but I prefer Pixie's look as she has committed to the look and added heels, which are a necessary component to palazzo pants!

Nicola Roberts in Topshop

Nicola Roberts, of British girl group Girls Aloud, performed at the Metro Radio Live event in Newcastle earlier this week, along with The Saturdays. She was spotted the next day, en route to Liverpool to perform at a concert in her hometown. 

She displayed her usual eclectic style, wearing a purple denim jacket, animal print Mulberry 'Alexa' bag and Topshop silver platform heels. The heels have a very space-age vibe and would be perfect to wear on stage so I'm sure we will see Nicola wear these again at some point. 

These heels are so new they are not yet available on Topshop's website but keep your eyes peeled for them! Best Blogger Tips

Runway to Realway: Fruits!

Everyone's gone bananas! Quite literally in Prada's case as they presented shirts and skirts emblazoned with the fruit for their Spring/Summer '11 collection, along with its favourite tasters, monkeys. And they weren't the only ones offering a visual treat; many of the pieces in Stella McCartney's S/S show featured a smattering of grapefruits, lemons, and grapes, plus Suno created a very wearable fruit print midi skirt in their S/S collection. And it would appear that it is a trend that is not about to die down anytime soon as Anna Sui has just presented an autumnal twist on assortment of berries and citrus fruits in her Resort 2012 collection. 

Prada S/S '11
Suno S/S '11

Stella McCartney S/S '11
Anna Sui Resort '12
The High Street has, of course, interpreted this trend in a very wearable way. Zara have created a very Stella-esque citrus-print blouse, while River Island have squashed two trends into one by creating a very chic stripe-and-fruit top, as well as a fruity romper. 

River Island, £14.99
Zara, $59.90

Who wore it better? Kate Middleton vs. Lydia Bright

Kate Middleton caused near hysteria when she wore the Reiss 'Shola' dress last month to greet President Obama and his wife Michelle, in London. 

It sold out within hours but one person who did manage to bag one is Lydia Bright, 'star' of The Only Way Is Essex (TOWIE). She wore hers on a shopping trip with black patent platform pumps, a two-tone bowling bag, and a metallic necklace similar to the Princess'.

I think this is a good argument for dressing for your shape as the dress appears quite ill-fitting on Lydia- it creases across the hips but is gaping around the bust and shoulders. I think Lydia knows this as she does not look too confident in it.

Reiss have announced that they have re-ordered 600 of the 'Shola' dress which should be arriving in about five-six weeks time. You can register your name to be informed of when the dress arrives by visiting
