British-FashionTopshop skirt fashion bloggerVictoria Beckham

 

Today I’m supporting home grown British fashion by sporting a white Victoria Beckham shirt with a skirt from Topshop’s current season.

There are so many great designers here in the UK and what I love about them is that they don’t steer too far away from traditional British tailoring. Stella McCartney and Jonathan Saunders are possibly my two favourites.

I enjoy dressing up as much as the next person, but my growing interest in fashion all began from playing with textures and so for me, that is where the detail matters.

You can’t go wrong with a crisp, white shirt either; you don’t need to own many but it’s that one item you should have in your closet so invest in a good one. I’ve grown fond of Victoria Beckham’s collections because it’s minimalistic, understated and pretty timeless. It’s a safe buy.

If you love shopping then you’ll quickly discover that the biggest and easiest fashion mistake to make is spending a lot of money on a loud catwalk piece – fast forward 12 months and you’ll not only see how irrelevant it is but you’ll also wonder why you ever picked something so ghastly.

The skirt is a co-ord and comes as a set with a jacket, which you may have seen in my previous post. You can purchase either of these by clicking HERE.

White shirtI had lunch at Top 1 forever in East London with my sister, it’s a pretty location right by the Thames with a view of the O2 arena. Here is the sea bass with chorizo salad and pea purre. Yum!
