Girl of the moment… Katy Perry.

I wasn’t too sure about Katy Perry initially but I think that I have definatley warmed to her, she is super cute and has a courageous dress sense!

Katy Perry DG party Here she is rocking it out at a party hosted by D&G’, wearing of course D&G!

Isn’t she a betty! A kinda mix between Lilly Allen and Dita Von Teese! I really like her individuality, and for anyone who really admires Dita’s look but doesn’t want to do overboard I think Katy is the perfect example!

She wears a nice mix of vintage clothing, designer rags and high street, which I think could be highly achievable!

Check out Lulu & Red, ASOS and Topshop for playsuits and retro dresses. Don’t be afraid to experiment, go for mega glam 50’s hair with a cute flirty dress one day. Katy seems to be a big fan of corsages, but don’t pay over the odds for one on the high street- nip down to your local garden center and craft one yourself! Make sure you show off your womanly shape, nip in your waist with a colour belt or silk scarf! If you aren’t confident wearing short playsuits then I would recommend sticking on a pair of bright tights, have fun when your dressing, liven things up with a bit of colour I say!

Calling all vintage lovers…

Poppy Valentine Skirt Available from ASOS

If you like to dabble in a bit of vintage then you gotta check out Poppy Valentine.

With all products created from original vintage fabrics, Poppy Valentine mixes a little old with new, creating a collection of uber cute smock tops and dresses. I also particularily like their Fonda Weekend Bag from the Contemporaries collection.

All products are available from the Poppy Valentine website or ASOS, where this midi skirt was styled with girly  grey socks and would also look perfect with over the knee socks.
