V for V V V VERY lovely dress alert from … easy … very.co.uk and so no to the Stars I’m afraid…
Rating; A short P.s to my last post here….well also a mini rant. So if it were currently iconic High Street dress. vs iconic High Street dress…just to reassure you : so NO on ‘the’ Star dress.
Inside scoop; M&S do alot of things brilliantly but nothing annoys me more than a dress selling out before I can even get it, in fact selling out twice. I appreciate that’s the whole intention of Limited Edition. But frankly I just find it annoying. That is all.

Rating; I don’t really do ‘fashion’ per se, in fact my mum often says I’ve the style sense of a small squirrel, maybe not fair she doesn’t exactly say that, but she does say I have a ‘particular look’ not sure it’s properly a compliment! But heck this time even she LOVED this dress and so do I…hurry hurry before it’s gone if you like it.

Fine, Feathery, Fabulous ; Friday finery ; check out these gorgeous earrings from cute niche US brand Shiver&Duke
Rating ; Feathery-fantastic-feeling-fine-for-Friday ok NOT strictly a beauty product but a beautifying FIND and a bit of Friday fun so I thought it counted. Especially as earrings can make as much of a difference in lifting your look as a new lipstick, so I had to share these flirty-feathers.
Inside scoop; Shiver-me-timbers it’s Shiver & Duke. Shiver and Who I hear you say??? Well, I just discovered this cute little brand in a cool boutique where I live which have begun stocking it. They called to me – loud – from their window. I resisted, for about an hour, then rushed back and scooped them up.
What are they – straight up, unashamed ear candy of course. This gorgeous range of feathery earrings are literally feather light meaning statement-heavy but NOT heavy-on-the ear. I wear them for day, most might possibly save them for night.

Rating ; Matte-er of fact anyone can wear Matte; so let’s talk High Street vs. High Chic. I put New Look vs. VB’s Matte-tastic shades to the test and guess what : the High Street has it every time on this one.
Inside scoop; Matte Matters. Lips hottest trend this season is Matte. From beige-to-nude to darkest Venom Berry it’s the must-try lipstick texture. Long-lasting, day-night wear it’s a great option for non-transfer glamour & really easy to wear. I put Victoria Beckham for Estee Lauder’s [on left] & New Look’s latest matte blends [on right] into the ring – POW – the High Street took it. Erm by about £28 too!
Matte shades are everywhere this season, in fact they’ve been around for a while but have undergone a bit of a lip-volution this year. Previously crease-making, clumpy, fairly heavy textures, have been replaced by feather like, feels like air textures in every shade you can think of. The barely there / pink : beige are the best to start out with, as the newer heavy colours can look a little harsh on anything but the youngest.
