“Teamwork makes the Dream Work”

Following on from last week’s blog on collaborations, this time it’s all about the QUIZ x TOWIE autumn edit.  Featuring a specially chosen edit by TOWIE favorites Lauren Pope and Chloe Sims, the collection pairs the shows signature sass with key trends for this season including: snake print, check tailoring and leopard print. Looking for an everyday outfit that’s guaranteed to turn heads and make you feel fabulous? Invest in the QUIZ x TOWIE’s daytime range of tops, day dresses and casual wear in all the hottest prints and colours. Or find your next night-time look in the QUIZ x TOWIE evening wear collection. From statement jumpsuits to embellished dresses, they have you covered for ALL special occasions this season. 

Can I just say - Animal print and sequins, I was in heaven!  Read on for my top picks available at Quiz and Quiz @Debenhams – why not take a picture and show us your top picks, we would love to see them!

Now I have been after a midi skirt this season, something I can pair with boots and tights or swap for heels for an evening look. Cue this gorgeous animal print skirt in a super flattering wrap over style.  Initially I was drawn to the more caramel tones but opted to go bold and try the red and green print - it’s a wow factor! As they say ‘red and green should never be seen’ but I’m saying - it should! They work so well together and create a striking contrast to brighten up your wardrobe this season. I’d pair with gold tones to add warmth. There is a very cute and sassy slogan Leopard print lips tee to match for a more casual funky style and I’d team with some gold glitter sneakers to complete! To create an evening look, add a simple black cami, heels and a black biker jacket. Perfection! 

Ooo that’s given me an idea for a special night out this Saturday! It’s a great piece to have since you can create soooo many outfits from it. 

Next up is a... SEQUIN...BLAZER (had to do that for effect ha ha).  What a showpiece to take you through the party season and beyond.  It fits beautifully with a gorgeous hang to it, so that’s put it even further up the wish list!  You could turn this into a tuxedo for wearing in the evening over a jumpsuit or a pair of cigarette pants and cami. It’s also such a statement piece that this could really elevate a daytime lunch date outfit especially if you pair it with the sassy tee shown. I actually skipped to the changing room to try it on! 

Talking of party season, it’s time to start searching for THE Outfit, Quiz always have a sparkling selection and the QUIZ x TOWIE jumpsuits is no exception. The silver one has a cowl neck which adds a softer flattering line and tie-belt to accentuate or create the waist. Just imagine this shimmering on the dance floor! There is so much more to see in store...

I’m always on the lookout for cosy, but cute, jumpers for my clients and the Quiz Pink Flower Applique Jumper has been one of my favorites this week.  How sweet is the flower detail that trails beautifully down the arms, this just adds some depth to an otherwise simple knit. You will feel so ‘pretty in pink’ this winter. 

The last one of my top picks is the TOWIE Black Stud Trim Chelsea Ankle Boots - perfect for the transitional wardrobe.  You will see a lot of chunky boots this season and my best advice is to pair these with something feminine and floral to ‘chunk it up’. This will soften the boot yet add some funk to your florals. I’d also give it a try with the animal print skirts I mentioned at the beginning - give yourself an urban style make-over.

On a final note of collaboration, I will leave you with the new Reflexions bracelet by PANDORA. I wonder how soon I can start writing my Christmas list because this will definitely be going on it - simply stunning! The mesh bracelets and corresponding clip charms mix modern and flexible, to let you express how it feels to be you. It also promises to showcase your style with confidence and creativity. Oh yes please! 

I am wishing for the sterling silver bracelet and the Crown charm...and the Dazzling Elegance...and maybe the Timeless Sparkle, oh and...

Farewell for now my lovelies, I hope you have a lovely weekend, any exciting plans?   I am going to visit the new Hotel Chocolat store - one of my other favourite things to think about - chocolate, I wonder what yummy treats I will try! I may have to sample a few...

Stay sweet and always you,
