She Likes ... To be healthy

Yet again it seems that the size 0 debate has hit the headlines - this week Topshop have come under fire because of a model used in their website who is looking in need of a good roast dinner! As someone who works in this industry I find it a bit disappointing that some of the highstreet are not leading the way in showing how to be healthy and happy as well as fashionable. While understanding its about making the clothes look their best - clothes are their to make the customer look their best so its the customers body that is key (average size in the uk is around a size 14/16)! Brands like New Look and Dove are showing us how its done by using 'real' women in their advertising - these are not high end fashion models but it seems to work and is great press for the brands! Evans also run facebook campains asking customers to send in pics of themselves and their favorite outfits - its all about the customer and the product - perhaps some designers and brands should be taking note and promoting heath and enjoyment through clothes.

She Likes ... A Premier

Last night was the last premier for Hazza Potter - sad times! Emma Watson will be in every magazine this week I expect in her amazing Oscar de la Renta dress -loving the embellished bodice and full skirt!  The boys were also looking fab in their suits - Hazza himself in grey with a waistcoat and Ron in black, my favorite has to be the twins in matching suits in alternate colours!

She Likes ... Romance

Love this romantic looking Topshop cami with its waist tie and full ruffled hem- perfect for a summer date with some light washed jeans and neutral comfy heels - add some pretty gold accessories and the look is complete. All we need now is RPatz in a suit (water for elephants) and a little Italian (lady and the tramp). Perfect!

She Likes ... Olsen Fashion

It seems only yesterday that instead of Hannah Montana it was the Olsen twins all over the kids channels on tv - but now the girls have moved onto the pages of top fashion magazines and onto the front row of all the best catwalk shows! Despite a few faux pas fashion statements over the years (velvet suits and goth fazes) the Olsen twins seem to have reached a point where they always look on trend and fab and not scary and a little too skinny as they have done in the past! As someone who is not 10 foot tall model height - its nice to see celebs looking fab and working the trend even it they dont have great long legs (it just means bigger heels!) Here are a few of their best looks!

She Likes ... Pretty Green

There's nothing quite like a collaboration -and when it involves Clarks - the quintessentially English footwear brand and the very British Liam Gallagher you wonder if these two personalities could be any more different. Im sure Liam isn't all too interested in leather lined ladies velcro sandals! However he is very interested in the Clarks desert boot - so much so that he has worked with the team in Somerset to create his own take on it with a slightly more streamlined look to sit back with the rest of the range!  Available in 4 colours at £95 this is one for the fans and the exclusive shoe lovers!

She Likes ... Vintage

After coming to terms with the fact that for the next few months I will be feeling the pinch of paying for my summer holiday its still hard to not look round the shops when the weather is so nice that everything in your wardrobe is 'so last year'! Luckily vintage shops seem to be safe places to browse and look about without splashing out too much as its more about key pieces than stocking up on essentials!

Here are a few pics from a shop 'Marshmallow Mountain' in Kingly Court - London town! So many amazing shoes - love these tan ones, perfect with some tapered trousers I think!

The best thing about this place was all the scarfs! So many for around £20 and so many amazing prints any colours!

By far my favorite find of the day! Loving the shape and the florals - perfect with a simple vest for day time or a blouse for a slightly more dressy look!

She Likes ... Sunshine

A few snaps from a little weekend excursion around the fields and across many bumpy paths (not good for the bum - horrible bike seats! but v v good for the legs!) As you can see the views were amazing across the impossibly yellow fields with the blue sky! Definitely recommend getting out on that bike you haven't used in years and going on a mini adventure!

She Likes ... Von Trapp Family Style

After an afternoon of cycling around the country side singing Doe a Dear I thought a little tribute to the Von Trapps was in order - its actually surprising how easy it is to re create this look with everything that's on the highstreet at the moment! Lucky coincidence or a sign of simple homely and country feel clothes in a time of financial struggle? Or a bit of both! (unfortunately my curtains would make a very boring, slightly see through dress - Miss Selfridge have saved me the trouble for a mere £28!)

She Likes ... Wedges

The time has come! Its been sunny for over a week and we can begin to hope that its here to stay! So get out the nail paint for your toes and invest in some of this seasons hottest wedges! There seems to be 3 key looks - the floral wedge, to go with your denim shorts - the formal wedge, slightly more covered poss for work or a more dressy affair - and the tan/espadrille wedge for all your casual, maxi dress needs!  Here are a few of the best:

She Likes ... A Fascinator

After the Royal Wedding extravaganza there is one thing that stands out - seeing all the wedding guests in their amazing outfits! The best part (apart from the dress of course) is people watching to see who is there and what their wearing - and what they've got on their head!! Weddings are one of the only times other than graduation that we can walk around with something ridiculous on our heads and it seems normal!

The understated look - This is probably for the girl who is new to fascinators and needs something simple and classy. Love this John Lewis one as you dont need to worry about clips and hair slides!

The posh hat look - Its not quite a hat and its not quite a fascinator - but it looks fab and makes you stand out from the crowd! Love this one Zara Phillips is wearing below for Wills and Kate's wedding, she must have spotted this one from Accessorize and got her own just like it!

The floral look - The is perfect for everyone as every wedding outfit looks fab with some floral accessories! This one is for the slightly braver girl who is happy to balance  something a bit larger on her head but there are loads of smaller flower slides and clips as well! This one from Very is perfect in neutral colours! (and a bit of a bargain!)
