High Street Pick of the Week

Never had I thought the shop Next would feature on this blog and certainly not as a high street pick of the week. I'm no fashion snob but since the dizzy days of the first ever Next catalogue I've never had recourse to go there. There are stores that I just don't do because they never cross my mind, I've had a bad customer experience or really they are not for me or any clients, unless the store happens to be my client!

Next falls into the never crosses my mind category, as apart from petit garcon's Ben 10 pyjamas and Scooby Do slippers foray he insisted on, I don't think I've set foot in there in years. But Thursday evening at the She magazine/HSBC Women in Business fashion event (more on this next week, it was a latish night, canap├ęs, Cava and too much fun) lo and behold this came down the catwalk and I was transported poolside with cocktail. One of my fellow stylists friends may have hissed 'I'd rather get something similar from Topshop' but at £45 what do I care!




Psst - don't style it as in image, go for a more boho and flip flop look unless you are actually poolside on an evening in Miami or Capri!

  1. Love the neckline detailing on this piece and the shape is so flattering. Makes a change from wearing a dress and the strapless design is tres sexy.

  2. I hardly get anything in Next, unyet years ago, used to buy a lot in there and I mean years ago, like early nineties! butsometimes you need to look again and I did when looking for my winter puffa, although I got one from John Lewis in the end.

  4. Love the new look. I think Next is very hit and miss - they never seem to hit a stable cycle.

  6. That's one jump suit I would consider buying. Simple, yet elegant. The last jumpsuit I owned was back in the 80s :D
