She Likes ... ASOS Curves

After having a shop around the high street and online im finding it hard to pin point what it is i'd part with my money for at the moment (feeling the january pinch)! Whether its my indecision or that I am stuck between winter and spring it goes to show how important it is for shops to add the wow factor to new ranges, one place that seems to be doing this better and better is the ASOS curve range. Altho i am not plus size myself i am loving the style and confidence in the current range! The shapes are fab and there's a good mix of smart and casual making it easy to find key pieces! Here are a few faves (loads more on asos.com)

She Likes ... Sherbet dresses

2011s Golden Globes last weekend was, as ever- full of amazing dresses! It seems everyone is getting ready for spring in lovely fresh sherbety sweet colours - loving the simple shapes and flowing fabrics. As for hair and make up it looks as though the soft femine look is in with out an over made up face in sight.

She Likes ... Plus Size Fashion

On Saturday I went along to a plus size fashion event where the grand prize was a trip to Las Vagas to enter and plus size competition over there and so getting lots of press and attention from the plus size fashion industy which is fast growing in the UK as well as the US! The event was run by a site called Plus Size Tall, and was sponsered by Evans who gave all the contestants £100 to spend instore towards their outfits for the day, and the two runners up a £500 shopping experience in Evans!

It was a great day and really inspiring to see so many women proud of thier looks and so happy in their own skin. The contestants wore jeans and white t shirts in the first round and then evening dresses and heels in the second round where they answered questions from the judges. Here are a few snaps of the lovely ladies -

She Likes ... A Celeb Craze

I read about these bracelets that use 'a performance technology designed to work with your body's natural energy field' they use a hologram to 'resonate' and 'respond' with your body (/www.powerbalance.com/powerbalance) . Then i saw Kate Middleton wearing one in the paper this morning with a lovely silk dress - and after a google it seems everyone is wearing one -  EVEN the business man sitting opposite me on the train had one on with his suit! I am not sure i buy into the idea that a hologram can respond to your energy field for a reasonable $29.95- (and what response would it have?)

I would also like to point out that the scientist in the paper said that these have not been proven to have any effect on your power, balance or strength - but there's no denying celebs love a craze and this seems to be the latest one!

I personally would like a hair slide invented that can improve balance on a night out when wearing high shoes!

She Likes ... Fresh Fashion Faces

Here is a little line up of who I think the ones to watch will be in 2011 in terms of style and trend setting - A bit of a mix of people I can remember standing out at some point in the last year for being fresh fashion faces!! Have i forgotten anyone?

Love or hate her music, Ellie Goulding certainly knows how to stand out!


Love her style, love her music ... She's 10!! There is know doubt that being Will Smith's child makes you instantly cool - it must be in the blood!


Bruno Mars making style look effortless here- looking forward to seeing what 2011 has in store for him, hoping to see many more classic and cool looks like this one!


I think this dress was in every magazine and every paper! Carrie Mulligan has had some fab red carpet looks this year!


Nicki Minaj  - pal of Will I Am and new red carpet head turner! Not too sure about this outfit but love her individuality!
