A-Z Fashion Guide: Agnès B

By March 18, 2014 A-Z Fashion

Howdy folks! Today I have the very last part of letter ‘A’ from my A-Z Fashion Guide. Yes, I have actually done 3 of these posts now! To view them all, scroll up to my header, and click on A-Z Fashion, and voila! All of the posts will all be in a nice place, easy to get to! 😀 It’s just a quick one today, but I hope you enjoy it none the less!

agnes b a-z fashion guide french fashion designers Agnés was actually born Agnés Troublé (she means Trouble… aha) in Paris. At just 17 she joined Elle magazine as a junior editor, but shortly after she gave birth to twins and moved to Dorothee Bis as a designer and then left in 1964 to become a freelancer. Troublé opened her own store in 1975 where she sold clothing to a wide age group. Most of her designs were adapted from French work uniforms, but she also specialised in separates such as cardigans which had a rustic, worn in look. In 1981 she started to design for menswear, and then opened her first international store in New York in 1983. Agnés B is now an internationally renowned designer with maternity, footwear and cosmetic lines.

To me her designs now are very simple and chic, but have that sort of retro vibe running through them. I like the fact that all her collections are very wearable because it means they can match anybody’s fancies and are all very versatile. I chose a few pieces which are currently on the Agnés B site…

 As I said the pieces are very simple, but some of them are gorgeous! I am in LOVE with the pastel blue coat, and it’s sophisticated shape. You will probably know that I am on a bit of a blouse ‘high’ so the blouse above definitely caught my eye! I love the print and shape of the dress (3) and how even though it is rather plain, it still looks so interesting. I think the t-shirt is really cool too, sort of illustrative but funky, and nobody can beat a bit of monochrome! The ‘Laura Dress’ (5) is also divine, especially the back of it which is open. Definitely a dress which you could wear to the beach at night time and drink back a few cocktails (my drink of choice would be a non-alcoholic Cinderella. If you have yet to drink it, then you are missing out!) The checked trousers are a really nice addition too. Simple, classy and very versatile, and could be worn with the t-shirt and coat, perfectly! Très jolie 😉

I hope you liked learning about this lovely french designer! The next part of my A-Z Fashion Guide will be beginning with B! If you have any guesses of what it could ‘B’ 😉 leave a comment below!

The White Pepper Summer Collection 2013

By July 23, 2013 Fashion

So, I don’t usually do ‘one brand’ focused posts, without it being a review, a wishlist etc, but today I am being very nice and doing one. The lovely people from The White Pepper sent me one of their summer magazines, and oh my. I have officially fallen in love. 0_0

the white pepper the white pepperEven from the cover, I think you can tell that The White Pepper is utterly gorgeous. I mean come on. Watermelon and white nail polish = perrrffff. Not only have they got the front cover covered – pahahaha – the inside is even more perrrffff. I love the fact they incorporate the trends with their own style, by using making everything very crisp and clean but adding quirky touches with fruits (pineapples for example). It sounds odd, but if you get your hands on this booklet of amazingness, then you will truly understand what I am trying to get at. I usually look at brands and think that they are the same as everyone else, but I think The White Pepper have something a little different, and I like it.

the white pepperThese above are a few scan in’s from the magazine. Just look at them. They all look like they could jump out the screen! I know that a lot of bloggers and people I speak to, LOVE The White Pepper, and I totally agree. If you are looking for your summer ball dress, but don’t want something to flashy, they have it. If you need something for work, they have it. If you just feel like treating yourself, you can. The prices are probably Topshop prices, so the higher end of the spectrum, but not so much that you will be penny-less (well, if you are me then you will be)! I now officially want these overalls, this mac, this twin set, also this blouse, and of course this skirtoh and maybe. I should probably stop now. Stop reading this now and just go and look for yourself. And I am very sorry if your bank account is empty by the time you re visit my blog… just so you know, I have warned you.

If you want to buy the 1st magazine you can just here! It’s FREE (excl. P&P)

(This is not a sponsored post. The White Pepper sent me the magazine but I did not have to review it. All views are a 100% honest.) Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx
