After my puzzled blog a few weeks ago, asking what the hell was, the fog has cleared, the penny has dropped and I now understand that it is the new name for Littlewoods direct. Still puzzled as to why it's stocking Peaches for PPQ range- I thought was exclusive to
On the subject of Peaches and her 2nd (or 3rd?) range for PPQ, I am very impressed. Miss Geldof and the PPQ team have come up with a cute collection of winter florals and Laura Ashley inspired smock dresses. Very current. This velvet dress above is 59 pounds and will be a great addition to your winter wardrobe. The sweetheart necklace and fitted shape gives a nod to the 80s trend that is huge at the moment, whilst the winter floral print make it a great day-dusk dress that can be dressed up or down. Student loan day on Weds. I am seriously tempted.


I've not posted in a while, because I've had no net access but I am pleased to say I am back blogging again. Much has happened in fashion in the past few weeks, mainly because New York fashion week has just finished and London fashion week is well underway. London fashion week promises to be a-mazing with shows from my favourites including Christopher, Jonathan Saunders, Amanda Wakeley, Nathan Jenden, the show list just makes me drool.

9.30am on Saturday the 19th saw knitwear designer Mark Fast's show take place. And whilst his sexy, body-concious knitted pieces have the fashion journos gushing, it was his decision to include size 12 and size 14 models in the show that caused the real stir.
The size 14 model is here on the left, whilst on the right and below are two classic catwalk size 6-8 models. The plus (!) size model looks a-mazing in my opinion, she looks like a pre-raphelite muse of Gabriel Rosetti and her curves breathe life into the body-concious pieces. Shame then that the stylist working on the show the Mail reported today stepped down after fast insisted on having larger models included in the show. It's an interesting back lash to the size zero debate.
