Divine Demin – Check it Out

Current must have

If you didn’t know already the only bag to sling this season is the Saddle. Hard to find unless you used to scouring through vintage shops and even then they are like finding a needle in a haystack. Girls! Thank goodness for Witchery. They have created the most divine shoulder bag in brown or black for $179.95. Keep the straps extra long so your bag is below your waist, (a-la Prada) or wear it securely tucked under your arm. Perfect for the plane, train or automobile. We recommend you hurry because there aren’t many left in the stores. Most of them would have left the country by now – they’re so purrrrfect. If you can’t get to a Witchery boutique just log onto www.witchery.com.au and enter the icon ‘shop’. It’s the kind of boutique you can’t leave without making a purchase.

Denim Delicious

Yes, your right we’ve probably said it all before but denim is the word. It’s the leading look for the minute. Trot into any store and you’ll see denim, denim, denim. Everyone from Cameron Diaz to Britney Spears is wearing it. One of our gossip mags had a pic of Meg Ryan wearing a denim trench, which looked fab. Want to know how to copy her look? Witchery. Witchery still have a few denim trenches (around $150) on offer so don’t panic just hurry. We’ve picked out our favourite denim pieces for you to find over the Internet so get on and check them out:

Witchery’s denim pencil skirt ($89.95) Wichery’s fitted denim jeans ($99.95)
Portman’s jeans ($79.95) Country Road denim pick stitch skirt ($139)

The plain white and the plain black styles (from sexy, cotton mannish shirts to bust-enhancing bandeau tops overhung with sheer drapes of fluorescents and her eveningwear (here come the Oscars) was incredible.

Fashion Alert – Glittering Jewellery Stones

Crystal Tattoos

Following the recent Hippie Chic on bare skin look, Swarovski has done it again with the Glamour Look a la Hollywood. Wear there latest glittering jewellery stones on bare skin or as a neckline. They come in blue, red, topaz and amethyst. The great thing to these funky tatts is that they are so easy to apply (It doesn’t have to be four in the morning and a dare with a friend). All you do is carefully wash and dry the area you want to apply the stone and press it firmly for 10 seconds.

I’ve tried it and they really do last for several days.

Available from Swarovski and Ooh La La stores nationally. ($24-$42 per CD pack)
