A Corrie Encounter!

by Lucy Smith on April 14, 2011

This Tuesday our intrepid Buyer, Lucy and Digital Marketing Guru, Si boarded a heavily laden (with amazingly cool tees) motor and headed up to Manchester for the Lipsy retreat. A few long, diverted through country lanes miles later we arrived at the rather glam looking Great John Street Hotel. Right opposite the ITV Granada Studios, we could just about spot the red brick Chimneys of Coronation Street peeping through the gates and as we passed through the herd of paparazzi and into the main doors, we have to admit we felt a little bit like minor celebrities ourselves!

Upon arrival, we met the exuberant and gorgeous Katie, our PR agent extraordinaire who was ready and waiting with huge smiles to get our fabulous merchandise displayed for the occasion. The Lipsy retreat brings together a whole host of fab brands, giving us a chance to meet our celeb fans in the flesh! We had tons of fun and managed to get a few great pics of the day.

Time to RELAX!

by Sunny on April 11, 2011

So spring is finally here and for us fashionista’s that can only mean one thing: Spring wardrobe!

We’ve had the odd miserable day but the sun has come out and we’re ready to play. Finally, we can ditch our chunky knits for light layering and swap our hats and scarves for sunglasses.

The best thing about the sunshine is when you’re stuck for something to wear just follow the advice of those Jersey Shore boys from MTV (ahem) and opt for “T-shirt time!”

Yes, the t-shirt is a vital addition to any spring/summer wardrobe; in fact there isn’t any day of the year where you cannot wear a tee. I’m not just talking about any t-shirts- oh no, I’m talking about those bad boy tees at TruffleShuffle.com

Frankie Says Relax T Shirt

Frankie Says Relax T Shirt

One of my favourite t-shirts from the website is this Frankie Says Relax tee, a steal at £20.00. This iconic tee is a wardrobe must have! With the sun out, I wasted no time in putting on my shades and trying to take Frankie’s advice by relaxing in front of the camera.

For my spring outfit I wore my t-shirt with one of the hottest colours of this season- cinnamon. The dark denim shirt compliments the two colours well and makes a light cover up instead of a jacket or cardigan. To finish off my outfit I simply added some mirrored aviators, my Keds and my brand new but totally retro Casio watch.

Can I just take this moment to say how much I love this watch? Growing up I never owned a Casio watch but the boys in my family dad. I always thought they were for ‘the lads’ but then when I saw them on the ladies section of TruffleShuffle I had to see what the fuss was about…

With so many bright funky colours available, I went for the safe option with the light grey colour. As someone who is used to wearing ‘fancy’ watches it feels so good having a comfortable, durable watch that tells me the time straight without me trying to figure it out! Oh and it lights up in the dark- handy.

I haven’t taken the watch off since I received it, even wearing it to work. So if you haven’t yet had the ‘Casio experience’ then get on it. It is probably the best addition to my spring wardrobe!
