The Style Council

Erm..No, not that Style Council (Paul Weller gives me the heebie jeebies! - sorry Lou)

Last month I signed up to become a Style Councillor for The Shopping Forecast. It sounded like fun - choosing all my favourite picks for the season and watching people vote on which ones they like and which ones they don't - like an amateur version of trending, I guess.

So, I quickly uploaded the first 'big trend' for Spring 2011 that popped into my head:

Christopher Kane's Galaxy Prints

After filling in all the details etc about the gorgeous skater style dress, I got distracted at work and totally forgot all about it...

Until yesterday.

I got a lovely email from Matthew, who runs the site, telling me that my pick was really popular and would they be seeing any more picks from me? Oops! Always thought my forecasting skills were more atuned to weather predictions than fashion (I'm obsessed with the weather forecast - but more about that later)
So, I spent a little time yesterday and today hunting out some of my picks for the summer. If you fancy a wee swatch (little look), click the button on my right nav bar. If you likey what you see, please VOTE for me!!

Back to the weather...

It's mid-February, the shops are full of delightful summery outfits, I'm browsing the tinternet to seek out the best waterparks for my summer holibags and yet it's cold enough outside to freeze the balls off a brass monkey. Cold and murky. In fact, today's weather can only be described as freezing Scotch Mist. This saddens me more than normal today because...

Apparently a storm is set to bring the Northern Lights to Britain tonight! If the sky clears, we could be in for a real treat. I am so excited! I could tick another thing off my bucket list if this were to actually happen.

If you're in the UK, keep your eyes peeled tonight - the whole sky might look like a Christopher Kane dress!


  1. I loved this dress and voted for it as soon as I saw it up there x

  2. I'm a Style Councillor on The Shopping Forecast as well, it's really fun!

  3. The irregular choice blue bag with the bow, the Fred Perry/Amy Winehouse collaboration halter dress & the Decorous Taste killer heels are all absolutely amazing! I've voted! xx

  4. The dress is beautiful! I'll be looking out for your future forecasts!
    In answer to your question, I'm going to start selling my pictures this weekend/next week! I'll post about it when it actually happens!

  5. omg the northern lights! I bet its only up your way :( plus its cloudy here! wahh!

    I love Christopher Kane's glaxay prints always <3 xx
