Want to look your best but low on spare cash this month?
Here’s the solution.
When you’re a shopaholic, it can be difficult to stick to a budget. It’s easy to go above your limit, especially when we walk down the high street and are spoilt for choice with the selection of clothing stores around us. It’s just too tempting! Sometimes, when cash is a little tight, we just have to refrain from making a purchase, no matter how much we’d like to own that outfit. However, we still want to look and feel our best every day. Can we achieve the look we want without breaking the bank? Alterations Boutique, specialists in suit and dress alterations in the UK are here to shed a little light and explain how you can look great without splashing too much cash.
London Fashion Week is always spectacular, but you know it’s truly something special when you have Queen Elizabeth II sat in the front row! She attended the Richard Quinn show, but which other shows got everyone talking?

Here’s a rundown of our favourite catwalks from the event:
On Day Two, Burberry brought colour to the catwalk! Fusing stand-out shades onto contemporary casual wear, Burberry retained its image as a forward-thinking, urban brand.
Key pieces that caught our eye included blush-pink sweaters, scarlet jackets and chunky lemon jumpers. For an extra splash of colour, Burberry showcased rainbow sparkles and multi-coloured gilets. This was creative director Christopher Bailey’s final show for Burberry, and he dedicated his last collection to: “the best and brightest organisations supporting LGBTQ rights around the world”. Once most famous for its traditional beige checks and trench coats, Burberry’s intelligent use of colour and drive for hyper-modern street wear and athleisure clothing has made it one of London Fashion Week’s standout shows.
How can you get Burberry’s catwalk look? Start by choosing bright colours and bold prints. Select contemporary athleisure styles — such as bomber jackets and oversized sweatshirts — and never shy away from check prints and the streamlined silhouette of a vintage trench coat.
Here’s to hoping the end is in sight of all the cold wet weather we have been having recently. So to get in a cheery mood I’ve been browsing online at what the “experts” predict to be the key fashion trends for Spring/Summer 2018. You may remember last year when I discussed the Winter fashion trends and how it was all chunky knits and a 70’s vibe. This Summer we are heading back to the 80’s!
Being an 80’s kid it was all about shell suits, frizzy permed hair and Back to the Future. In fact looking back now it was a fun decade of disco pop, neon colours, shoulder pads and leg warmers. It was great being an 80’s child! Oh and not forgetting the bum bag! I used to keep my white Sony Walkman in mine!
My favourite time of year is here – Autumn. The colder days are upon us so now is the time to think about putting your Summer clothes away and think about your Autumn wardrobe.
According to catwalk, futuristic fabrics, and tonal dressing is going to be in this season, but what does that mean?
