Now that the fashion weeks are over we can finally reflect on what we have seen from the New York, London, Milan and Paris catwalks and marvel in the beauty of the clothing and accessories from the worlds top fashion designers. You can find a host of designer bags as well as stunning designer fashion at Cavells. The catwalks showed us a varied mix of structured bags and while we did see some fantastic oversized styles, the focus was on clutches and small day bags.
This Diana Von Furstenberg bag has everything you may want from a small spring bag. It’s subtle pop of yellow shows a fresh and feminine side to a simple white bag, and the embellishments give the bag plenty of visual interest. The bag is only small, but big enough for anything you might need on a spring day out. DVF has once again hit the bullseye.
Personally I love Marc Jacobs. He always manages to create a unique designer style which can be incorporated into your exciting wardrobe. His accessories are guaranteed to be the things which will stand out and be remembered on an outfit. This Marc by Mac Jacobs shoulder bag is exactly that accessory. Its vibrant colour is guaranteed to jazz up even the most boring of work outfits.

This not so popular term is in a need of a brief explanation in order to be comprehensive to those who were lucky not to be involved in it or not to have witness one. In words, wedding hijacking means that a wedding will be subjected to different unpleasant situation usually created by the people you know, but sometimes by the people you have never seen before in your life, that are not intentionally planned, at least not consciously, and that will surely happen if one doesn’t choose wisely the organization team, the wedding venue, the designer, the food. That being said, it is important to take a closer look at those situations, in other words, to get an answer to a question: who are those people and what kind of situations can distract the attention from the wedding? I went to this beautiful wedding venue in Sydney only to find a bride crying. This is why?

How to indulge every bridesmaid’s dress choice? Some people are lucky and don’t have any problems with it. Others are not. The answer to this obstacle is simple: just try to choose something that will be suitable than to force anybody to wear something not comfortable with. Think about it this way: you will have a special treatment at her wedding also.Children's comprehension of the wedding day
It is not unusual that some choose not to invite kids to their wedding because they are kids at the end of the day and can cause a hijaking. Children go to a wedding assuming they play and perhaps get to eat cake- it feels like a party! And that is the truth because playing is their way of learning about life. One should always have that in mind regarding children. Imagine a situation where your future family refuses to come to your wedding because you decided not to invite children? There is always a solution that can indulge everybody. If you decide to have a garden wedding the children would be thrilled. On the other hand, since it is not recommended to insult VIPs or the business partners, the babysitter can become an honorary member of a “rescue team“. This extra expense is definitely worthy.Long distance relatives you have never seen
If you have a huge family it’s a blessing, but it is also a problem considering guests list. In today's world one cannot achieve to maintain family links with everybody, but that’s not the problem, the problem involves the parents who tend to add every single person from your huge family to the guest list. This almost instantly lead to the question of the budget. On the other hand, if the budget is not the issue, the problem can be of a more personal dimension. Maybe one just doesn’t want “strangers” on their wedding. A very rational and serious talk with parents long before the wedding is more than a good option to resolve this unpleasantness. After all, parents are just trying to help and that should always be understood.
Ugg boots have become a popular fashion craze for many women over the past few years. These furry boots as some call them are seen as highly fashionable, trendy, and stylish. They can apparently be worn just about anywhere from a crowded boardwalk to a chilly Halloween night.Women wear Ugg boots when they go on hikes, when they go for walks, at the mall, and even wear them to a job interview. There should be a limit where Ugg boots can be worn, but there shouldn't be a limit with what to wear them with.When it comes to other accessories, clothing, or jewelry, Ugg boots can be worn with practically anything you want. Since Ugg boots are trendy, it's okay to wear them with pieces of clothing that you normally wouldn't be caught dead wearing. You can obviously wear Ugg boots when you have a coat or jacket on. Ugg boots look like they should be worn when it's cold outside, so they can protect your feet from the cold. A jacket is the perfect article of clothing to wear with Ugg boots. Boots and jackets go hand in hand, and they make a perfect match.How about a short skirt? Can you wear a short skirt with Ugg boots? If you are wearing those boots on a hot boardwalk, then it makes sense to wear light, short clothing. In that case, wearing a short skit with Ugg boots will work out perfectly. Even though it may look like a fashion faux pas to many people, a trendy product will always save the day. That's the beauty of a trend. It doesn't matter what you wear with it because something popular will elevate any normal fashion mishap. This means that you can wear Ugg boots even while wearing pajamas. It may look funny to most, but the trend will always beat out the oddity. The difference between what to wear with your Ugg boots compared to when to wear them is obvious. You can wear different items along with your boots, but there are limits when it comes to where you're going with them.

If you like your fashion so much so that you are buying it so often and throwing it away after a few wears out then you probably find Primark a great place. Its a zoo in their Oxford Street store with all ages sexes though mostly younger females doing the rounds. You see I think its about the feeling of buying something and that new smell. It goes so fast you need to get back in there tuesday evening to find the next fix.
You can buy plastic shoes that fit the bill of value and fashion. I'm not fully against such low priced items provided they are not sweat shop fabricated but this is another story and a complex one. Lets just see the side of fun for the moment and the colours of spring into summer. You see these shoes could be fabricated by moulding them and there isn't a stitch in sight.
Its the new UK punk style !
