Trendspotting at Tesco aw09-10

Tesco tell us they have stepped up a gear and are going for full-on fashion instead of playing it safe. Amen to that. We liked the animal-prints in pink that were all over the shop, as well as the faux leather biker jacket (we thought it was real!) at a mere 30 quid.

Adore the bow detail on the back of this gem of a jacket...

Fancy a black sequin blazer for next season? Believe us, you'll be spoilt for choice...

Marc Jacobs - new fragrance alert!

Marc Jacobs is adding a new fragrance to his empire. Coming this autumn, it's called Lola and 'conjures up a flirtatious warm spirit.' Never mind that, we're swooning over the bottle!

It lands at Marc Jacobs stores in August.

What we liked at the H&M press day...

Black velvet LBD and suede biker gilet - suede and velvet are everywhere!

More biker action...

This Breton tee has Alexa Chung's name all over it...

A corduroy strapless dress? It shouldn't work but it totally does. Added points for the ruby red colour and handy pockets. We'd wear it over the stripy tee for day

Not sure what happened here...

What to steal from the boys' section:
A shirt to belt over a Lycra catsuit and biker boots

A boys' sweater becomes a dress - just add tights and brothel creepers
These hats = cuteness teamed with a spriggy dress and grungy work boots
Tip! Soften this up in the tumble drier and customise with studs or a cluster of badges on the pocket

We Love This: Fluorescent PR

So much to love at the Fluorescent PR press day. From the cheesecakes-in-tea-cups that looked almost too pretty to eat (we said almost) to the cross stitch kits by Urban Cross Stitch, we could have happily moved in for the entire afternoon. Our favourite discovery was Andrea Garland's skincare products which contain no nasties and aren't tested on bunnies. But the best bit was her gorgeous, romantic packaging. We couldn't decide between the refillable lipbalm tins or the travel kits - vintage tin boxes than come with a teensy silk scarf and a selection of vintage bottles filled with product.

From the beauty cupboard...

This week we're loving:

Navaz - Body Shop's Body Butter. Two for £10... Deal!

Kerastase Bain Divalent shampoo. Keeps those lank locks at bay while nourishing the ends. Genius!

Donna: Kiehls coconut lip balm. Smells like summer and has the ultimate moisturising-but-not-sticky texture.

OPI nail colour 'Under My Umbrella'. A bright poppy pink shade that's perfect for fingers and toes - but not together unless you're Paris 'matchy-matchy' Hilton.

See by Chloe

These See By Chloe workboots seemed to follow us round to all the press days, from Harvey Nichols to ASOS to Urban Outfitters. People, they are going to be everywhere!
If you want to get the look without rocking the same boots as everyone else, we suggest these similar ones also at Urban Outfitters. They're not in store yet but they will be soon...

Stella McCartney flowers?

Spotted this Stella McCartney ad on a flower stall at the top of New Bond Street. Turns out the stall-holder does the flowers for the Stella shop too...
