Incredible lace wedding dresses to make you feel like a Royal

Incredible lace wedding dresses to make you feel like a Royal

We promise they’ll make you swoon

lace wedding dresses

Despite the rise of alternative wedding dresses and high-street wedding dresses, there’s no denying there’s one wedding dress design that never, ever goes out of style, and that’s lace wedding dresses, whether you’re into vintage dresses or not.

Why? Because nothing says bridal elegance quite as much as lace. Let’s take a look back in time, shall we?

History of lace wedding dresses

Although lace has been part of fashion for centuries (hello Elizabethan ruffs), its first use in wedding dresses is widely attributed to Queen Victoria, when she married Prince Albert in 1840. She was a bit of a trendsetter, old Queen Vic. Not only did she choose to wear white (brides would usually get married in any colours, even black), she chose to have it entirely covered in hand-stitched lace, at a time when machine-made lace was taking over. Oh we do love a rebel.

Royal lace wedding dresses

Again, let’s blame Queen Vic for this one, because it’s become a bit of a tradition to opt for lace wedding dresses in the Royal family. Although Queen Elizabeth II’s and Princess Margaret’s wedding dresses were made of silk, as was trendy at the time, the younger generations of Royals opted to go back to traditions with their gowns.

Princess Diana’s wedding dress featured lace embroidery, as did Fergie’s, and who can forget Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen dress, which spurned hundreds of copies, and probably even inspired Pippa Middleton’s Giles Deacon wedding dress. Long-sleeved lace gowns are timeless and always perfect for the more traditional cathedral ceremonies.

Celebrity lace wedding dresses

Royals aren’t the only ones to favour lace wedding dresses, as it’s a big trend in the celebrity world too. Kim Kardashian walked down the aisle to Kanye in an impossibly elegant lace fishtail by Givenchy, Nicky Hilton looked regal in a high-neck lace Valentino gown and Amal Clooney’s Oscar de la Renta wedding dress was adorned with French lace.

Wedding dress trends

The beauty of lace is that it suits a plethora of different designs, from sexy fishtail wedding dresses to more ballgowns and 50s midi dresses. For a traditional take, opt for lace sleeves and a full skirt, for a vintage twist, try tea-length dresses, and for a more contemporary look, go for a more fitted design with cut-out or illusion details.

The six mid-price designer brands I’m buying into this autumn/winter

The six mid-price designer brands I’m buying into this autumn/winter

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, it’s all about the mid-range designer brands right now. Of course, there will always be room for the likes of Gucci and Saint Laurent.

But the rise of labels like STAUD and Ganni proves there is a market for brands that are a little pricier and more special than the high street, but that you can still afford without saving up for six months.

With that in mind, here are six mid-price designers I’m getting excited about for AW18, as shared by Browns, all priced around £200-£400.

MATÉRIEL (launching soon)

This is a Georgian fashion collective created in 2012 on the foundations of Fashion House Materia, one of the biggest textile producers in the USSR, that dated back to 1949, and is focused on the new generation of home-grown design talents. Currently the designers are Lado Bokuchava and Aleksandre Akhalkatsishvili.


Shop now: Situationist Strapless Fitted Wool Dress for £490 from Browns

This brand by Irakli Rusadze is one of the few Georgian labels that has had success internationally. National identity is a very important reference for the brand: his suiting is strong, and other tailored items like leather coats, have a special one-off vintage feel. Their visual language at times is bold, dark, abstract, ambiguous and not just about documenting the clothes but about evoking a certain emotion, desire or experience.

By Timo

Shop now: By Timo Floral Print And Broderie Anglaise Detail Mini Dress for £190 from Browns

Created by Tine Mollatt in 2004, By Timo offers romantic bohemian styles made with integrity. Exclusively stocked at Browns, there are 8 beautiful styles to choose from, bringing modern romance to timeless craftsmanship.

Low Classic

Shop now: Low Classic One Button Down Double-Breasted Blazer for £325 from Browns

Known for its clean, classic designs, unique materials and youthful energy, Low Classic is a Korean womenswear brand, launched in 2009 by Lee Myungshin, Hwang Hyng-ji and Park Jin-seon. It is sophisticated and quirky, easy to style and most importantly it’s accessible. Designed for confident people who want something easy to wear. Today the label is huge across Asia but sold only in two locations in the US, and Browns is the first Europe destination.

Aleksandre Akhalkatsishvili (launching soon)

One of the signers of fashion collective Materiel, this is hist first own collection, launching exclusively at Browns. His signature details include minimalistic shapes and lines and unexpected cut out details, and bold use of colour.


Shop now: Cap Morgane Chunky Knit Sweater for £380 from Browns

CAP is an Amsterdam based knitwear label that works with colourful yarns to develop a unique RTW offer through superior form, fit and fabrication.

Ankle boots: The biggest trends you need to invest in now

Ankle boots: The biggest trends you need to invest in now

Your best friend whatever the season, ankle boots never go out of style. These are the boots we’re swooning over for spring…

ankle boots

Finding the perfect pair of ankle boots is an essential shopping goal. From heels to flats and Chelsea boots to biker boots, a good pair can be styled all year-round, no matter the weather.

From Celine to Topshop, the past few seasons have seen ankle boots all over the runways, while the street style set at London Fashion Week loves to team floaty dresses with tough, androgynous combat styles, or leggings tucked into white boots and finished with an oversized knit.

Perfect for that tricky summer to winter transition, ankle boots should be a staple of every wardrobe. So to help you find your perfect new pair, we’ve broken down AW18’s key trends below.

Whatever your style, here’s where to start the ankle boot hunt.

Lace up ankle boots

It’s time to dust off your trusted Dr. Martens, because lace up boots are back in a big way – and in many styles. If biker boots aren’t your vibe, try Victoria-style slim lace ups with a kitten heel. Chloe, Gucci and Miu Miu are all getting in on the action.

Shop now: TABITHA SIMMONS Emmet lace-up leather ankle boots for £635 from Net-A-Porter

Kitten heel ankle boots

Our love affair for kitten heels shows no sign of abating, and we’re here for it. They’re flattering on both short and tall women, and there’s something to be said for not being in pain after a day on the cobbles.

Shop now: Kitten Heel Ankle Boots for £38 from next

Cowboy ankle boots

Yee-haw, Western boots have been taking over Instagram all summer, and it’s finally time to wear them IRL. Try Ganni, Chloe and Isabel Marant for a splurge, or Zara and Mango to save.

Shop now: GANNI Meg ankle boots for £430 from Farfetch

Animal print ankle boots

There is no animal print that is off the table for the new season, be it zebra, leopard or snake print. We’ve got a penchant for stamped croc boots though.

Shop now: Square toe boots for £90 from OFFICE

Flat ankle boots

We’re taking our cue from the style set and embracing flat ankle boots—there’s no reason not to be comfortable and stylish, after all. We’ll be teaming ours with unexpected pieces from midi skirts, à la Alexa Chung, to long floral dresses like our favourite street style star Veronika Heilbrunner.

With this season’s love of all things androgynous, we’ll be digging out our oversized jumpers and palazzo trousers too (hello Victoria Beckham).

Shop now: Avery Ankle Boots for £75 from Topshop

White ankle boots

Last season, white boots were everywhere thanks to Off_White and Balenciaga amongst others. Lucky for you if you invested last year, they’re back for the new season.

Shop now: White boots for £89.99 from Zara

Sock ankle boots

Blame Balenciaga and those floral boots, but sock boots are going nowhere fast. Whether they’re knitted, mesh, metallic or plain, anything goes, as long as it’s a second-skin sock boot – though this season, it’s all about neon.

Shop now: BALENCIAGA Knife spandex sock boots for £875 from Net-A-Porter

25 perfect pieces to nail the winter wedding guest dress code…

Winter Wedding Guest Outfits

As the endless string of summer weddings comes to an end and the weather starts to cool off, it’ll soon be time to prep for a new round of winter nuptials. Figuring out how to look chic and not freeze to death in the blistering British cold isn’t an easy task however, but we’ve done a dig for our favourite winter wedding guest outfits that’ll help you stand out from the crowd.

Whether you’re looking for a sweeping maxi dress or a colour-blocked midi, we’ve tracked down something for every budget and sense of style below. Affordable high street pieces are the name of the game over at Topshop, ASOS and Mango and we’ve also included some luxury hard-hitters – just in case you ever get invited to a royal wedding. (A girl can dream.)

Sometimes, the type of wedding you’re going to might limit the kind of silhouette you can opt for. When it comes to traditional church weddings, it’s generally frowned upon to flaunt your shoulders or a little too much skin so unfortunately the spaghetti straps and bardot pieces are off the table. On the other hand, a black tie affair is a chance to really let your hair down and go for a truly dramatic piece so look to Rixo and Theory for help on this one.

Your clothes are just part of your outfit however and the right accessories can tip you into fashion queen territory. Show-stopping statement earrings or some on-trend shell jewellery can step up a minimal piece, while the right pair of high heels or flat shoes can make or break an outfit. And if you’re feeling really sartorial, why not cash in on one of the season’s biggest trends: extra mini handbags? Let’s be real – when else are you ever going to get a chance to wear them?

As far as keeping warm goes? Our fashion editor Lucia Debieux weighed in, saying, ‘A great blazer is key in colder months. It’s the one thing that will really pull your whole look together if you get it right.’

Here’s a few pieces to fall in love with below…

Elegant wedding guest dresses

Rixo is very much the fashion darling of the moment and their stunning midii dresses are a sure-fire winner. Beloved by the style set and our own fashion editor Penny Goldstone, the dress below makes the most of two popular prints this season: polka-dots and dark florals.

Rixo Camelia Multi Chalk Tulip Dress

Maxi wedding guest dresses

A floor-sweeping maxi always makes a statement and we’re particularly feeling this wrapped Topshop piece. While the shirt collar gives it a more relaxed vibe, the length on this beauty takes it into fancier territory. Perfect for a more understated wedding, it’d look absolutely killer with a pair of faux croc heeled boots and a crimson lip.

Topshop Stripe Maxi Shirt Dress

Petite wedding guest dresses

If you’re looking for a piece that you’re likely to wear again, this affordable pastel Zara jumpsuit dress is one of our favourites. We’re particular to a menswear-inspired outfit and this bubblegum outfit is hitting all the right notes, especially with the contrasting buttons.

Zara Blazer-Style Jumpsuit Dress

Midi wedding guest dresses

We can’t get enough of yellow this season and this gorgeous piece by Svitlaya is only feeding our obsession. Perfect for that awkward period between autumn and blistering cold winter, this bright dress will bring the sunshine to every happy occasion.

11 online vintage clothing stores for effortless retro style

11 online vintage clothing stores for effortless retro style

Or how to look like Alexa Chung, Kate Moss, Sienna Miller and co.

Mixing vintage with high-street clothing is the key to being trendy without looking too try-hard, just ask Alexa Chung, Sienna Miller and Kate Moss.

But vintage shopping isn’t easy, you can easily spend hours in a store and walk out with nothing – which is why online shopping is the answer. We’ve rounded up the best online vintage clothing stores for you, whether you’re after designer handbags to invest in, like a vintage Chanel 2.55 bag, or the perfect retro band t-shirt.

1. ASOS Marketplace

ASOS Marketplace is a great place to start, with its offering of vintage boutiques, individual designers and independent labels. All pieces are modelled by real people, they call it ‘the people’s runway’, so you know exactly what you’re getting. The Marketplace blog is a great source of style inspiration, too. Bravo, ASOS.

2. The Stellar Boutique

You are very safe in Stella’s hands. Having worked at Levi’s, Marks & Spencer, Topshop and own a stall at Portobello Market (Kate Moss and Stella McCartney were regulars, FYI), she set up The Stellar Boutique. It’s bursting with one-off gems from designers and artists from all over the world. Warning: you will lose hours of your life pouring over Stella’s cleverly curated collections.

3. It’s Vintage Darling

Set up in 2006, It’s Vintage Darling is a fabulous site where each item – we’re talking everything from shoes and designer dresses to homeware – is handpicked by the dedicated staff – personal shopping at its best.

4. Beyond Retro

You’ve probably already heard of Beyond Retro. And for good reason. What started off in an old, disused dairy factory in East London, has grown so much that now they have shops in Brick Lane, Dalston, Soho, Brighton, and even Sweden. In store, they pride themselves on providing an ‘enchanting and unexpected shopping experience’, and the online offerings are just as dreamy.

5. Rokit

With clothes for men, women and children from the 20s to 80s, Rokit is a veritable treasure trove of vintage and retro gems. The site is so easy to use with a search-by-era tool that we just love.

6. Love Miss Daisy

Focusing on strictly the most glamorous vintage finds, Love Miss Daisy is crammed full of beautiful dresses and accessories. It even has a must-see vintage wedding dress section that we got very distracted by when writing this feature.

7. Retro Daisy

Shar, a life-long admirer of all things Marilyn Monroe, founded Retro Daisy to satisfy her craving for vintage glamour. A real labour of love, the Retro Daisy site has a very personal feel and is filled with bombshell pieces from the 40s, 50s and 60s.

8. 1stdibs

A vintage-hunter’s idea of heaven, this shop curates vintage clothes, fine art, furniture and jewellery from across Europe and America. Mainly aimed at those with bigger budget.

9. House of Liza

A London-based, super-luxe online vintage store, specialising in rare finds specifically from the 70s to 90s. Think vintage Yves Saint Laurent cardigans and Americana print Versace shirts.

10. Farfetch

Farfetch brings together boutiques from all over the world, including the best vintage stores. Head straight for the ‘Vintage’ section and a few carefully selected filters will lead you to your dream Prada bag, YSL sunnies or Balenciaga dress.

11. Vestiaire Collective

Granted, not everything is vintage on Vestiaire, as you can buy anything from last season’s designer items to 60s Chanel, but it’s still one of your favourite destinations for online vintage shopping. Every designer item is quality controlled too so you know it’s authentic and in a good state.

Now, that’s a whole lot of vintage.

9 completely impractical yet devastatingly cute bags

9 completely impractical yet devastatingly cute bags

cute bags

People in the office take the piss out of me for my tiny and slightly ridiculous handbags. I have one so small that you literally can’t fit anymore in it than a single credit card and tissue – no phone or anything, we tried.

I can probably count on one hand the number of normal-sized, practical bags I own, after all, that’s why tote bags were made, to be able to carry around the stuff you actually need, right?

Just last week, I went on holiday and the security guards at the airport just couldn’t get over my mini Mango picnic basket bag (obviously I got ALL the picnic jokes).

À la claire fontaine, m’en allant promener…

A post shared by Pénélope Goldstone (@pennygoldstone) on Aug 18, 2018 at 10:49am PDT

I know they’re technically a bit silly, but I can’t help it, I just can’t be unhappy when I see a little beaded bag, a pom-pom covered basket bag or a little velvet pouch.

And luckily the fashion world seems to agree with me, with my favourite designers and high-street stores offering up some wonderfully impractical bags that are so much more interesting than a black leather holdall.


A post shared by Pénélope Goldstone (@pennygoldstone) on Jul 29, 2018 at 11:58am PDT

For AW18, expect more beads, lots of wooden details, and a dash of faux animal print and skin for good measure. Here are a few of my favourites below.

Shop now: Mini geometric bag for £39.99 from Mango

Shop now: TRANSPARENT BEADS CROSSBODY BAG for £29.99 from Zara

Shop now: COLOURED PLAITED CROSSBODY BAG for £49.99 from Zara

Shop now: SHRIMPS Una faux-fur bag for £375 from Matches Fashion

Shop now: Ganni Edison Polka Dot Beaded Clutch Bag for £240 from Browns

Shop now: TAYLOR BRONZE VELVET BAG for £99 from L.K.Bennett

Shop now: TOP HANDLE CLUTCH for £49 from Charles & Keith

Shop now: Link Shoulder Bag for £32 from Topshop

Shop now: WICKER WINGS Kuai rattan and leather tote for £320 from Net-A-Porter

See? Told you I’d make you smile. There will always be room for practical bags, but let’s not forget the silly side of fashion.

Don’t be afraid, and wear your cute bag with pride, paired with a frilly floral dress or corduroy suit for autumn/winter.

10 things to buy in Topshop this week that’ll see you through autumn

10 things to buy in Topshop this week that’ll see you through autumn

From new-season heroes to refreshed, everyday staples

I love Topshop, I really do. As much as I covet all those beautiful designer accessories and clothes bloggers love to post about, I always go back to Topshop for that quick fashion fix, whether it’s that bag everyone is wearing, or those classic jeans that are forever #winning.

As such, deciding what to buy in Topshop each week is one of my favourite pastimes, as well as a bit of a nightmare if I’m honest. For some reason, my bank balance won’t play ball.

What to buy in Topshop

Topshop’s new-season collections are always highly anticipated and its AW18 collection has so far not disappointed, as it’s full of great transitional pieces you can wear now.

This season, you won’t be able to swing a faux-croc bag without hitting at least two snake-print covered people, so I’ve included both those major trends in my round-up – in show and trouser form respectively. In fact, anything animal-themed is de rigueur, with their sell-out polka dot dress now available in tiger print, and there’s a rather nice zebra print bag too.

Tailoring is always a key collection in Toppers, and this season is all about oversized check trousers and heritage-print blazers (Gucci style), paired with a vintage-style shirt. As for coats, the teddy is having another moment this season, in a nice blue version to satisfy your inner 00s it girl.

Another big trend to tick off for autumn is corduroys, so expect to see a lot of suits out and about. For now, wear a cord blazer over a silk slip dress. There’s also a smattering of chic dresses and accessories for good measure.

Be sure to check back in here regularly as when new pieces drop, I’ll be sure to let you know which ones are worth a direct click into your wardrobe…

These are the 4 designer shoe brands to invest in for AW18

These are the 4 designer shoe brands to invest in for AW18

We’ve already sorted you out with which designer handbags you need to be investing in for autumn/winter, so now it’s time to look at shoes (‘Too many women think that they are unimportant, but the real proof of an elegant woman is what is on her feet’ said Christian Dior).

And while we know who the big players were last season (Saint Laurent thigh-high boots, Ganni cowboy boots, pretty much anything Balenciaga etc), we’re keen to know which niche brands we need to snap up before they get too big – and sell out.

We asked the experts at Moda Operandi to share the designers they’re backing for AW18.

A by Anabelle

Shop now: A By Anabelle Jardin Majorelle Amor Pump for £630 from Moda Operandi

Milan-based designer Anabelle Tsitsin is from Israel, and she launched her brand in 2016. They’re super fun party shoes, with details that include a heart Swarovski buckle and Eiffel Tower heel. Our favorite style: #118 the Jardin Majorelle, inspired by Saint-Laurent’s garden in Morocco.


Shop now: Saptodjojokartiko Magani Bow Lambskin And Velvet Mule for £340 from Moda Operandi

This is huge in Indonesia, and launching exclusively on Moda Operandi. The designer’s known for his embellishments and soft palette, and he’s all about the flat mule – look out for the Fabergé egg-inspired ones.
Stella Luna

The brand is hige in Asia. The pricepoint is sharp, with pieces that are modern and chic. Our favorite is the buckle slide that’s rendered in satin for upper, and canvas for the insole/sole. The brand’s creative director is Capucine Safyurtlu, was a former French Voguette.


Shop now: Neous Calanthe Mule for £520 from Moda Operandi

London-based Neous are quickly making a name for themselves thanks to their beautiful paired back shoes and sculptured heels (creative directors Alan Buanne and Vanissa Antonious are inspired by architecture and art).


Shop now: N°21 Billy White Sneakers for £475 from Moda Operandi

The lucky number and birthday of designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua, N°21 is all about balancing men’s tailoring with ultra feminine details, so expect the unexpected. Think glitter kitten heels adorned with bows and chunky dad trainers.

Would you wear next season’s controversial trend? I’m still not sure

Would you wear next season’s controversial trend? I’m still not sure

Blake Lively, Rita Ora and Kim Kardashian have both endorsed this new trend for AW18, and it’s dividing opinion. I’m referring to the neon trend. Yep, it’s back with a vengeance, after four years on the sideline (it was huge for SS14, and let’s not forget last season’s Balenciaga sock boots).

Blake opted for a lime green Versace suit while promoting her new film in New York this week, while Kim Kardashian has been exclusively wearing brights for the past couple weeks, from a hot pink Yeezy dress to lemon Versace maxi and even a lime green wig to match her Lamborgini (because why not?).

On the catwalk, Prada, Versace, Marni and Moschino all had flashes of colour in their collections, and now the high-street is following suit, a sure sign that the trend is going to be big next season.

With that in mind, here are a few neon buys that are available to buy now.

Shop now: PRADA Bow-embellished neon silk-organza top for £640 from Net-A—Porter

Shop now: Neon Yellow Denim Skirt for £29 from Topshop

Shop now: Alexander Wang neon mules for £212 from The Outset

Shop now: Tibi belt for £73.62 from shopbop

Shop now: Markus Lupfer Blue Glitter Sunglasses With Neon Pink Coloured Lens for £78 from ASOS

I’ll be honest, I’m still on the fence with this one, and the head-to-toe look isn’t for me – or most people I reckon. That said, perhaps a touch of highlighter pink or lime, on say a pair of earrings or bag, might be a nice way to ease into it without going overboard.
