Victoria Beckham guest edits French Vogue: Is there nothing this woman can’t do?! Seriously we love VB massive amounts at the moment and here’s why… married to the most beautiful man on the planet, has four impossibly well behaved children, creator of a stunning fashion line which has won every award going, and now, well guest editor and chief of French Vogue. The impossibly talented Mrs B worked with magazine’s editor Emmanuelle Alt to create photo shoots featuring her and David, plus cool interviews. Snap up your copy pronto!

Julien Macdonald confirms for London Fashion Weekend: Julien Macdonald has been confirmed for the designer catwalk show schedule as part of the London Fashion Weekend. The fab designer (he of the naked side dresses worn by Beyoncé, Ellie Goulding and Abbey Clancy) will show his stunner of a collection on Saturday 22nd February. Tickets can be bought now to see the AMAZING SS14 range at both 2pm and 6pm. Better be quick, they won’t be around for long!

Cath Kidston comes to Piccadilly: How exciting! Queen of the kitsch rose print is opening a new store in Piccadilly this week! We know, exciting right?! We’re loving her Christmas jumpers,accessories and hot water bottles this festive season, so we’ll certainly be stocking up on these by the bucket load. The first 180 people in the queue for today’s opening will receive a surprise gift card, so start planning your queuing tactic now!

We Heart snowy fashion: It’s December, which means we are hoping and praying for snow. We mean, what is prettier than a snowy wonderland at Christmas? Nothing! Hence why we are loving some cosy snow fashion. Check out this list full of winter warmers here!

blog.image-bubble-daily.goss.2-031213-ukFashion Ed’s pick of the day: It’s time to turn your attention to beauty this festive season… unpolished nails simply won’t do! We love this Nars limited edition arabesque nail polish from House of Fraser, which is understated enough for you to wear to death over Christmas, but won’t look out of place on your nails come 2nd Jan.

The Great Gatsby – Style Guide On Twenties Glamour

on
Get Styled Like Gatsby
There’s Plenty To Love About The Twenties

We’re going Gatsby Glam here at Shopcade! The 1920s set has given us so much inspiration we can’t hold it in any longer and must share it with you.

It’s all about fringes, jewels, cocktails and dark red lips. (Not to mention, the sleek , classic suits for men! *swoon*)

I bet we’re not the only ones looking forward to seeing Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan sparkle their way into this adventure and watch the razzle and dazzle of all things from the roaring 1920s.

The Gatsby trend is one worth watching out for, especially if you want to work it into your weekend with a touch of the twenties into your everyday wardrobe by wearing a statement necklace or carrying a fringe bag. Whatever your style, we have something that you just won’t be able to say ‘no’ to!

Stuck for ideas on how to use the gorgeous ‘oh so’ Gatsby theme? Here are a few tips just for you:

  1. A dash of red lipstick to add colour to your work wear (MakeOver International in Artist Intense, from Zolando)
  2. A slight sparkle for that Saturday night out like this jewelled clutch bag (Abigail clutch, from Aftershock London) or these crystal ball earrings (9ct Gold Crystal Ball Stud Earrings, from F&F)
  3. A pair of ankle strap court shoes for popping down to the shops (Taupe Cedarwood Slingback Court Shoes, from Debenhams)
  4. A midi dress for that your friend’s garden party (Jolie Moi Button Front Pleated Midi Dress, from House Of Fraser) or this lace one for a more elegant affair (Navy Lace Overlay Dress, from Dorothy Perkins)
  5. Wedding coming up? How about a 1920s themed hen party? (LSA International Coro Cocktail Glasses, from mydeco.com)
  6. And finally, red nails…for just about every occasion! (Nails Inc. Tate Nail Polish, from Very)
