Style it like Solange

Solange made headlines again this week, but this time for all the right reasons. “Of course sometimes shit go down when it’s a billion dollars on an elevator” and whatever your opinion on what went down is, you can’t deny that she really did look a billion dollars at her New Orleans wedding.

Solange cycled her way to the venue in none other than a Stéphane Rolland jumpsuit before switching into a Humberto Leon for Kenzo gown for the ceremony. While her 1970s outfit choices were very on trend, she went against the trend when it came to guest attire as her wedding party all wore various shades of white. Despite this she still stood out as the star of show, even Sasha Fierce looked tame in comparison opting for a mid length Torn by Ronny Kobo Maggie Lasso diamonds dress.

Evoking Diana Ross, Solange looked regal as she swapped the traditional Bride’s veil for a cape. Engaged, single or happily married everyone should have a fling with Solange’s seventies style.

Ask Estelle // Cora’s Concern…

Cora asked: Estelle, I am forever doomed to struggle with finding a good pair of summery shoes (not sandals) – I want some cool, comfy shoes that I can wear in the day and night (no heels please). Can you help me?

Cora look I mean walk no further until your feet are firmly in these beauties…

Oh and did I mention they’re on sale!

These understated classic’s with their simple gold detailing are a perfect transitional day to night staple.

Want something a bit more racy? Then show some toe in these…

Or how about the peep toe? A happy balance between sandal and shoe. These laser cut, white beauts, hit two trends in one…

Distressed

Don’t worry this isn’t a cry for help, today I’m talking distressed denim…

Here’s me last Sunday soaking up the sunshine at Regents park in my ripped H&M jeans.

Shop with Friends: The Future of Shopping?

A few weeks ago I was discussing shopping online with friends (Sofa Shopping) well it seems Topshop have been taking note. Last night when I logged on to have a sneaky peak at knitwear I found a little icon at the bottom of the screen called “shop with friends”.

Go Green // Day 5

Finishing the working week off in style here’s Cora…

Jumper: H&M

Jumper: H&M

Cora’s teamed this wasabi green jumper with one of this seasons most sought after items: the high neck (Topshop). This combined with her delicious deep berry lipstick and floral necklace means these greens look good enough to eat…

Go Green // Day 4

‘Check’ Amy out in this black and moss green jumper…

This top is one of my favourite knitwear pieces of this AW. Amy’s styled it with jeans and pearl collar for a laid back luxe look, but it’d also look great with combined with this spliced skirt from Topshop.

Sofa Shopping

Don’t worry this isn’t a blog about home furnishings…it’s a blog about going shopping with your friends, without setting foot outside your house.

Now I know we’re all familiar with online shopping, but making it a group activity takes it to a whole new level.

Pajama’s on, cider in hand, my housemates and I lounged on the sofa’s and went shopping together. Each armed with a laptop and our quickly depleting bank balances we hit the Topshop website…

Here are our top picks:

The Polo Neck

Ah the humble polo neck, normally associated with thin, arty, Andy Warhol types and feared by large bosomed women. But you don’t have to lead a visual art movement, or indeed become a pioneer of the personal computer revolution (aka Steve Jobs) in order to wear a polo neck. Buxom beauties needn’t fear either, the ample chested Marilyn Monroe could certainly pull off a polo neck with ease…

However AW13’s polo neck or if you like ‘high neck’, isn’t the slouchy relaxed polo of the past, it’s an all together more subtle affair. There’s no roll neck involved, instead it sits neatly in the middle, the perfect equidistance between collar-bone and chin…

Still not sure? (..Really?!) Well take a look at these beauties…
