Sometimes it's good just to let the bag do the talking.... Its all about the brights and clashing prints now but this AW12 we'll all be looking for the classic shapes when it comes to our arm candy!

One of our fave bags at the mo' is Burberry Prorsum's Resort 2012 tonal raffia bowling bag adored by the likes of Beyonce & Miranda Kerr... but there are sooo many to choose from like Proenza Schouler's camera bags and the Gucci envelope clutch oooh we're totes having a bag-gasm right now! However with an eye-watering price tag to boot we'll defo be looking for a vintage alternative thank you very much and you should too! 

Check out 3 of the best that DollsMaison has to offer available on ASOS Marketplace...

Usually I don't feel out of the loop with regards to the hottest shows in town (because I usually don't care that much to be honest) but this week I have felt like I have literally been living under a rock, why? I'll tell you shall I? All I've been hearing about is this HOT new TV show called Revenge starring the demure Madeleine Stowe and the ultra cute Emily VanCamp, which premiered on Monday evening on E4. I totally missed it but I did manage to have a wee catch up online and OH. MY. GAWD!! Is it too premature to be hooked on a TV show?? Errr I think not!

The plot (brief synopsis, the show centers on a young woman who is welcomed into a Hampton community filled with people who don't know she's only there to exact revenge on those who had destroyed her family), the characters (hellooooo Daniel Grayson), the scenery and the fashion! Ahhh the fashion I'm having palpitations just thinking about it!

Now I see what the Americans have been raving on about! My Sky+ is now series linked up!

And for you ladies...the delectable Joshua Bowman as Daniel Grayson hubba-hubba!

We're currently gearing up for our next photo-shoot taking place this weekend and in true brit style we're going seriously overboard, why? Because the sun's out of course (for now)! The inspiration for this photo-shoot is all things bright, loud and blinding a la this season's catwalk!

Looks like a bag of skittles has just thrown up doesn't it?... yep, and we bloomin' love it!! 

Keep an eye out for our take on this bright & beautiful trend next week!

Is it just me or does the hot weather always catch you off guard? I never have time to get myself 'summer' ready before the sun starts beating and I've got to start exposing everything! If you're in the same boat as me you're probably rejoicing at the fact that the oversized shirt is one of SS12 key trends! Not only does it hide a multitude of sins (January's non starter diet and pasty skin!) but it gives you that sleek, slimming look whilst you frantically crash diet before the sun goes away!

Check out our fave oversized shirts available on ASOS Marketplace this week. We've teamed these cool silk shirts with vintage denim cut-offs cos it. is. BOILING!

While listing our new gorgeous new product on eBay and ASOS last week, I managed to catch a couple of Eastenders episodes; aside from the normal drama.... Ben's lost the plot blah blah blah! I couldn't help but admire the wardrobe of one individual in particular so today I'm paying homage to probably THE most stylish individual on Albert Square, the legend that is Dot Cotton (...yep that's right!) 

We just can't get enough of the quirky colour combos, the on trend graphic prints, candy coloured cardis and her amazing array of structured handbags. Yes, she always looks prim and but you can't deny that the lady rocks some serious trends...

Check out some of our faves below - what do you think? 

.....and would you just check out the immaculately painted red nails!

One of our favourite things is discovering a rare vintage find in great condition. Even more amazing is when it fits in so nicely with the season's hottest trends... SHEER.CHECK! & PRINT.CHECK!

Feast your eyes on this 1970's Signed Prince Carmino Sheer Maxi Skirt we found on our recent travels, available on ASOS Marketplace

We wish we could tell you more about this designer however information is pretty scarce, all we can say is that Prince Carmino was a French designer and was the dressmaker to the Royal Family before becoming a famous designer in the 70's dressing royalty and celebrities alike.

No doubt whichever lucky lady dons this skirt WILL be the centre on attention, but you’ll definitely need to wear some big pants to preserve your modesty! However you can forget looking like Bridget Jones because this skirt is spectacular with a capital S!

Picture the scene, we're traipsing around the streets of Europe on one of our many buying trips, s**t was gettin' DIRE! The sky is grey, our lungs are filled to capacity with dust and other bits of random flying debris, our feet are swollen to the size of small hover crafts and the hunt for the best vintage pieces is almost over.... Über annoying right?! Yeah that's what we thought too! So we're almost about to admit defeat at this one factory when we see something old and familiar winking at us from the bottom of a bag we had swiftly dismissed earlier because, well... let's be honest we were [enter your own expletive here] fuming! 

"What was it??!" we hear you cry! T'was THE ONE, THE ONLY, THE LEGEND that is Miss Vivienne Westwood! We must clear something up though, it wasn't THE Vivienne Westwood packed up in a bag ready for us to haul away but one of her gorgeous signature blazers! Oh happy days!!!!

What a way to make a trip worthwhile ay?
