It’s not only the birds that are going cheap this spring – fashion is too. For so many great new ideas and at such an early stage in the proceedings, they seem to be asking us to pay very little. So we can show you wear-every-day clothes at your price to our heart’s content.

The Most Wanted Woman on Earth

The search is on at all Chelsea Girl boutiques.

I wonder if anyone ever did win this and receive ‘nationwide publicity and become known as “The Most Wanted Woman on Earth”.’ Anyone remember? Regardless, I’m in love with the heart on the thigh above and, in fact, the entire colour palette…

All Dyed Up

All dyed up 6

Velvet tie-dye dress from Mr Freedom. Canvas boots from Biba.

All sorts of things are getting the tie and dye treatment this summer – and we bet it will colour our autumn too! It’s easy to tie-dye jeans and t-shirts, just tie a knot anywhere, grab a packet of dye, and you’re away! But the experts have been getting at everything so you can buy it already dyed – summer colour has hit jersey, velvet and gaberdine to. So get dyeing!
