Hot Picks Of The Week, Direct From Me To You!

I've decided to add a little extra to my blog each week, and, if I can manage to keep it up whilst juggling a social life, dance life, love life, and work life, I should like to be so bold as to offer you, dear reader, my picks of the week. I shall be offering you the best of the E-tailers merch to peruse and then if you like what you see, off you can trot and buy it, should you so wish. And if you do, you must send me pictures so that I can feature you right here on this very blog.

So to begin. Christopher Kane launched his latest collection for Topshop last week, to great acclaim. The best part about buying concession collections like this one is that you get all of the fashion kudos and much less of the agressive wallet meltdown. I should know, I've been there...Stella and Victor and Rolf for H&M, Celia Birtwell and Kate for Topshop, Giles at New Look...you get some fantastic, design-led pieces at a great price.

Here's my hot pick: http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=false&catalogId=19551&storeId=12556&categoryId=181496&parent_category_rn=181495&productId=1369078&langId=-1

This is the grey bandage dress, which costs £50 (one of the cheapest pieces in the collection) and is a portrayal of the iconic design skill Kane posesses. He became a name off the back of his fluro bandage dress collection, and this piece will work for years-it is timeless, classic with a twist, and really, really fun. It comes in fluro lime too, for those of you wanting to associate more closely with Kane's look, but I think the grey is probably more wearable and also just as nice.

Next up, my very favourite online retailer (I know-it's overtaken Topshop in the style stakes for me!) ASOS.

ASOS has so, so much to choose from. Their sales are incredible (leather jacket for £16? Oh, go on then) and they are extremely on the money with their trends. Here's what I like from them this week:

http://www.asos.com/Asos/Asos-Gathered-Sleeve-Blouse/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=799750&cid=2623&sh=0&pge=1&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Black

This is a gorgeous gathered sleeve blouse which nods to the power shoulder without being too opressive...think a softer shouldered look for everyday. It will look fierce with either peg leg jeans or harem trousers and ballet pumps or brogues for a twisted take on daywear.

I also really like these: http://www.asos.com/Asos/Asos-Compass-Suede-Flat-Over-The-Knee-Boot/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=670556&cid=4172&Rf-100=Boots&Rf-400=53&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Chocolate

Which are stunning flat thigh boots, a killer concept for autumn, I firmly believe that the best way to wear a thigh boot and lose the Julia Roberts/Pretty Woman association is to a) avoid patent at all costs, plumping instead for luxe fabrics like suede, and b) choosing a flattie. The heeled thigh boots are, of course, gorgeous if you have pins like Claudia Schiffer and are built like a pro basketballer, but when you are of a smaller stature you can run the risk of looking like you're heading out in leather waders. Fly-fishing chic is not the look to be chasing, at the moment, anyway. Also these ASOS boots are £95, which isn't actually too bad for a pair of winter boots, and is £300 cheaper than an almost identical See By ChloĆ© pair. Winner!

Finally I also had a quick squizz at Urban Outfitters.co.uk, and found these:

http://www.urbanoutfitters.co.uk/Burnout-Rose-Tights/invt/5743461712100&bklist=icat,5,shop,womens,womenscollections,breakfast

gorgeous rose print burnout tights that are perfect for making the transition from bare legs to opaques. Wear with a pretty tulip skirt in navy or bleached denim, tuck in a plaid shirt and throw over a leather jacket or chunky knit with brogues or long boots for supercute autumnal style. Don't forget the geek specs!
