BUTTERFLY MAXI DRESS…

How good does Evans style editor look in this gorgeous floor length maxi dress? Heres what she had to say about the look…

“I’m looking forward to the weekend and I plan to start having fun the moment I clock off work today. 

This butterfly print maxi dress (coming in next week!) suits my mood and will take me into the beer garden for a nice glass of Friday Rose.

Without something over the top, this maxi dress would be too OTT for work, so I’ve added a soft denim biker jacket. But I can’t resist some playful jewellery in the shape of a leather charm necklace.

This oversized white leather bag is roomy and yet stylish. I’ve been shopping at lunchtime and filled it to bursting point!”

RUBY BELLE DRESSES AT EVANS

High street brand Evans have come up trumps again by launching this gorgeous range of dresses by the fantastic Ruby Belle. If you like pattern and prints this then collection will suit you down the ground. Prints and patterns were all over the catwalk last year and are set to be huge this summer. My favourite has to be the flamingo print dress, priced at £55. On that note, it should be noted that the dresses have all been priced the same at a brilliant £55. These dresses are a real investment piece. The red floral tea dress would be perfect for a festival with wellies and socks and light weight parker. Which is your favourite dress?

ITS ALL ABOUT MAKING A STATEMENT

I came across these fabulous statement rings from EVANS and actually considered buying all three. When clothes shopping sometimes turns disasterous due to poor lighting, small changing rooms and too tight clothing, then accessory shopping can be retail heaven. Accessories ALWAYS fit and what better way to stay ahead of the fashion pack than with one of the gorgeous gold and black statement rings. I think my favourite has to be the first ring, with the large insert black stone. This would go gorgeously with my blazer and layered chains, Givenchy style.

MUSINGS OF A FATSHIONISTA!

When I was reading the blog on clothing website, Evans,  recently I came across the guest blogger Christina from the fabulous blog Musings of a Fatshionista. Her writing is funny yet informative and she regularly uploads photographs of herself looking fabulous, taking trends and turning them on their head perfected for the girl with more curves than the models walking the runway. She has excellent advice on styling for the fuller figure, like how she took her American Apparell circle scarf and turned it into a maxi skirt with buckled shoes and a rucksack. She looks fabulous and is definatley one of my new style inspirations….lets see how long it takes for the fashion world to catch on. Not long, hopefully!

EVANS NEW SPRING COLLECTION

Evans have certainly pulled a fantastic line up for its spring collection. 

The latest 2010 campaign for the company — which caters to sizes 14 to 32 — takes its inspiration from Peter Lindbergh’s 1990 cover for Vogue, featuring a supermodel jackpot of Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford and Tatjana Patitz.

Twenty years on, Evans’ updated version stars a cluster of curvy beauties — Britney Vecchio, Hayley Morley (of Mark Fast catwalk fame), Crystal Renn (the face of the brand), Amber Tolliver and Peeky — in a clean, simple shot that the brand calls “aspirational yet accessible.”

“These supermodels of the ‘plus’ industry are making you forget their size,” Gary Dakin, vice-president of Ford Models, said in a press release.

“It is women like these that are going to knock down the final barriers, showing that they are some of the best at what they do by modeling for some of the key opinion formers and brands within the fashion world.”

Hear hear. I love the simple, sophisticated aesthetic, with the girls looking gorgeous in jeans, white tees and on-trend fitted tuxedo, military and leather jackets.
