It'll Be A White Christmas at the House of CB‏

G Star Raw launched their SS15 collection with a Mixology Cocktail Event

G Star Raw launched their SS15 collection at the quirky 98 Bar in Shoreditch.

As a treat to all who attended we were invited to join a Mixology Cocktail Master Class to learn how to make a mojito and cosmopolitan.

After the class we were encouraged to create a G-Star Footwear inspired cocktail. Here I am checking out all the cocktail entries:

 Here's Leroy Dawkins, Diary of a Clotheshorse creating his cocktail.

The winner was Prince Cassius, seen here with a caricature drawing of himself

Also on display were a few of G Star Raw AW14 pieces.

Thank you to G Star Raw for a lovely evening and for Overland Shoes for organising the event.


Amy Willerton wears the Sure outFIT - the world's first little black and white activity monitoring dress prototype, which has been launched off the back of research revealing that women are more active than men, spending eight years more on-the-go over the course of a lifetime.

The dress features state-of-the-art wearable technology monitoring movement, heart rate and calories burnt to help busy women to track just how active they really are.

The nationwide poll of over 2,000 Brits commissioned by Surewomen reveals that over the course of a typical week, UK women are active for half a day more than men, allowing them to take on an additional hour of shopping, three extra hours cooking, four more hours of housework and over double the time men spend on childcare.

And when it comes to multi-tasking role models, the top five celebrities who women in the UK admire for successfully juggling the most in their day-to-day lives are:
 1. Angelina Jolie (15 per cent)
 2. Kate Middleton (13 per cent)
3. Holly Willoughby (10 per cent)
4. Jessica Ennis (8 per cent)
5. Beyoncé (5 per cent)

Sure Brand Manager, Claudio Bellen, said, "Our research proves that women are more active than ever."
 "With so much to pack into their busy schedules, the one thing women don't need to worry about is leaving black and white marks on their clothing - especially during the Christmas party season. That's why we've created the new Sure Black + White antiperspirant, to keep white marks and yellow stains on clothing at bay, so busy women can keep moving and doing more with complete confidence throughout the day."

Littlewoods Make a Splash at their SS15 Press Day

Raising the room temperature and creating a sparkling blue swimming pool setting, it sure did feel as though summer was here. So  let's dip our fashion toes in to the pool for a sneak peek at what Littlewoods has to offer for SS15

Silver and gold metallics glisten in the sun. Sitting on the diving board the mannequin wears a pristine white cut out floral top. It does have a matching midi full skirt for that lunch date, but here it is casually teamed with denim shorts and jacket for a leisurely day at the pool.

Colourful 70s style brings out the boho maxi dresses and patterned bikinis. This stylish monochrome striped floppy hat says 70s  French Riviera. The kimono is here for another season.

Another 70s inspired look is the faux suede  fringed jackets in earthy brown, wider belts and the white peasant look maxi skirt. This summer is going to be laid back man!

Myleene Klass and Coleen Rooney's collection take on a more structured style:

Myleene Klass 

Myleene goes for bright bold colour blocks with this orange lace dress and fuchsia pink dress with turquoise faux leather biker jacket.

The attached necklace matches the bright blue in the pencil skirt for the polished look. No need to worry about accessorizing! The blue on the pencil skirt is only at the front with black at the sides and back for a slimming effect.

For evening go long in this fish tail dress or shorter in this gold prom style dress.

Coleen Rooney

Coleen goes for the 60s trend with this pale blue lace shift dress and creamy yellow A line coat.

She chooses a more muted colour palette of pale pastels and monochrome.

Littlewoods shows that their SS15 collection is going to be a hot one!
