Primark SS14

Primark have released their Spring/Summer 2014 collection- and it looks sweeeet well done lads.  Up the cheap and cheerful.

Love the styling here as well – corn rows/braids are set to be a big hair trend this summer.  Primark has undergone a complete image overhaul and I applaud them for it;  they have continued to grow through the gloomy recession and altering their target market towards youth fashion will see them grow even more.Primark ss14 2

I would happily wear every one of the looks in the images above; which is a big step considering when I was younger I would’ve been embarrassed to be seen in Primark (and I wasn’t alone in that feeling).  I’ll be popping in store this week to check out the goodies.

Stella McCartney Look-a-likey!

Every season the amazing clothes that big designers produce is used as inspiration for high street brands.  I’ve been doing a bit of hoking around and found some look-a-likes.

Stella McCartney 

By far one of the hottest collections for Spring/Summer 2011 (take a look at my previous post Tutti-Frutti prints, https://belfash.wordpress.com/2011/04/20/tutti-frutti-prints-for-summertime/ for more inspiration!). I loooove these citrus prints, so fresh and summery.

I like the print on this NEW LOOK dress, however I think the shape is a bit uninspiring (a prom dress, really?).  With so many amazing new shapes on the catwalk I think NEW LOOK have been lazy with this design.

I think PRIMARK have done a far superior job in their lemon-print dress.  The print is gorgeous and I love the way the top half of the dress is woven diagonally.  At £9.00 you have no excuse for not buying it!

The print on this ZARA blouse, £29.99 is a bit too much leaves and butterflies and not enough fruit for my liking.  However I’m glad someone had designed something other than a dress from McCartneys inspiration.

On my hunt I also found these two cuties!  Orange Resin Ring, £8.00 and Large Citrus Pendant, £20.00 from http://www.jijikiki.com.

Hope you liked this! I’m going to try to do a BELFASH LOOK soon,  I can’t at the minute though as I’m all sick with a tummy bug :(.  But I’m sure I’ll be better soon.  Any suggestions just comment on my facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002252247478.
