Where to buy statement pieces

I have received few emails asking where I get my clothes from especially my latest obsession "statement tee and tops. I love high street fashion...River Island, Topshop, H&M, New Look, Warehouse, Oasis, Pull & Bear and many others. But my statement t-shirts and tops are from "Rebellious" in Liverpool. I came across the store during my high street edit week and I love it! You can find hot new trends or mix and match styles for perfect trend-setting adventure. I was permitted to share some new items perfect for your fashionary summer. Take a look.....

Shorts are always in season, but floral shorts are trendy for NOW season. You can wear this with T-shirts or LS shirts/ sandals or convass.

Top image: studs are quick way to make your outfit stand-out. Think rock! go studdy.
Left: I know the weather is warm now, but sometimes it can get chilly in the evening after a decent night out with the girls. Stay trendy and warm in a metallic blazer.
Right: Statement tee is bold & bright and very eye-catchy. Check me out!
Top left: A mixed statement tee can be worn with skinny jeans and heels or shorts with sandals or even under a skirt. Playful but perfect!
Below left: Beautiful butterfly top for my girlie fashionistas. Looking for a simple look this summer? just put some leggings on or a green skinny jeans and you are good to go. Don't forget your clutch!
Top right: Perfect for geek chic and city look in summer land. Think London!
Below right: Go gracien with this white embellished dress. Accessorise with gold earning and bracelets. Think Egypt!

White is classic but don't go safe. Mix with geometric patterns and asymmetric.
Every fashionista should have a leather jacket for unforeseen situations. But why not get hot new jackets in colours. You can make it unique by adding some studs and spikes.

Fashion on Sporah

I was invited few weeks ago to showcase my sample collection on The Sporah Show in London. Little did I know I was participating in a discussion about the growth of ethnic prints in the UK, which in my opinion, has become one of the fastest fashion trend in Europe. High street shops have taken on this trend......H&M, River Island, Topshop to name a few, and so have top designers like Burberry and many others. It was interesting to know that some aren't away of pioneers of this prints, or how it all began.

(Discussion on the show coming soon)
To give more insight into this....please leave your comments about your views on ethnic prints. In the meantime, take a look at Sally Kah, fashion editor of Eighteen Forever, Make-up artist Terrel and TV Host Sporah............>

Street Style Australia

Whilst most girls wear denims, crop tops, blazers and the ever-ranging colours of pastel this season. Aussie fashionistas where raving in bold & tribal prints and sweet florals at Australia Fashion Week this year. I wish I was there but, there is nothing more stimulating than researching and sharing others immaculate taste in fashion, especially those of high fashion photographers and of course journalists.

Street style: Sweet floral

Street style inspiration: Burberry Prorsum's tribal print

Street style: mixing summer, winter & spring. Very inspirational

Bold and tribal prints are daring colours and patterns, not all girls can get away with wearing it. What is important is to...

1. Know your body shape.

2. Know your skin tone and colours that compliment it.

3. Try things on before you buy them.

4. Always ask for others opinion (those you can trust, not all shop assistants are going to be honest with you).

5. Don't be afraid to try something new.

6. Golden- always take pictures so you can make real judgement of what you're wearing>(helps for improvement).
