Summer Sale!

June 28, 2010

It is now late June and just so happens to be my favourite time of the year – it’s Sale time! There are some brilliant sales on right now with offers of up to 50% off as all the big brands try to get rid of the Spring/Summer collection and bring in the new Autumn/Winter range. I’ve already spent a fair bit of money on the Reiss sale. I’ve had my eye on this casual jacket for a while but it has always been outside of my price range. However, I bought it for £79, down from £159, now that’s a saving!

I wish I could afford this Sweater. The attention to detail is unbelievably which perhaps explains the hefty price tag. Elvis Jesus design some of the most impressive items of clothing around right now.

Gift Ideas

June 10, 2010

When it comes to birthdays for my mum and sisters, I can never think of what to get them. I spend hours scouring the internet thinking, “What on earth would they like?” However, I then came across the Abahna website. Abahna specialise in exotically scented bath and body products, scented candles and beautiful gift sets. I don’t have a clue what the name means but I like it. The site looks amazing as does the packaging which is most important of all. They have an eclectic range of bath salts, body lotion, bath foam and bath oils. Certainly one of these will be the perfect gift.

Bench Live!

June 8, 2010

One of my favourite clothing brands has just built a new micro site called Bench Live (www.bench-live.com). This new website has been launched to increase Bench’s brand awareness and help Bench promote their music heritage that they are heavily involved in. In recent years Bench has been associated with Festivals such as Manchester’s Parklife Festival, Creamfields and Liverpool Sound City. I’ve had a browse through the website and it looks great. Bench Live provides you with information about forthcoming festivals and music events. You can purchase tickets to these events through this site and the opportunity to take part in competitions in order to win free tickets. There are interviews with music stars such as Lisa Lashes, Paul Van Dyke and The Sunshine Underground. There are fashion tips to what to wear to these events with a link back to the Bench Shop website. Basically everything you need if you’re a clothes and music fan…which I am.

One look that will stay around for a while is the lumberjack look. These are casual shirts that are checked (tartanesque) and provides the image that you cut down trees for a living. I do like the look, it is just so common though. Absolutely everyone has one of these checked casual shirts. I am even wearing one of these shirts as I am writing this. I would wear these shirts more often it they were a bit more original. However, some of my favourites come courtesy of Bench who have a cool range of casual shirts.

As it is approaching summer I have decided to post my ideal outfit for this season. After looking through various brands, I decided to go with Reiss as their new SS10 collection is pretty cool. I think this outfit not only looks great but also looks really comfortable. Sometimes comfort is sacrificed for style but not this time. I’ve gone for a casual look but there still remains a level of sophistication that i like. I don’t usually wear hats but I think once again hats will be huge this summer and I’m really digging this one. The casual jacket will be ideal for protection against the chill of the summer nights.
