Commissioned Post.

As a fashion lover, I adore nothing more than time out (preferably in the bath, with a glass of bubbles, in bubbles) flicking through glossies discovering new trends before replicating them with high street buys so my bank manager (and husband) don’t end up hating me!

I do love the odd designer piece too don’t get me wrong, a Mulberry handbag here or a dreamy set of Jimmy Choos there, but these are classic pieces that outlive trends and will last forever. Investment purchases even my husband understands are ABSOLUTELY necessary. OK that was an absolute lie but it felt good pretending(!)

…I’m also mad about antique and vintage finds too from jewellery to perfume atomizers and even furniture. But let’s not cheat on fashion with furniture in this post and focus in on the Spring trends I’ll be rocking (not round the Christmas tree) come 2014.

Pretty Pastels
Pretty PastelsFrom minty greens to swoonsome lilacs and light blues, I know where my wardrobe’s heading and that’s to girls-ville with my black attire taking some much needed time out.

Bomber jackets, baby!

Bombers make me feel like a teen again (yay!) and these edgy, vibrant, embellished numbers will be all over the high street from January!

Striped TrousersStriped TrousersI love a stripe, any kind of stripe and a lovely long leg lengthening tuxedo meets sporty striped trouser will give me the perfect silhouette this Spring! Supermodel long legs a go go!

So, I’ve been working with American Express® and discovered they have an ongoing fashionista-friendly partnership with Foursquare, offering Cardmembers exclusive deals when they check in at retailers, so long as members have synced their Cards to the programme first.

Major retailers include Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Anthropologie, and SpaceNK and they have great specials from American Express when you check in using Foursquare. See the list below with details on these offers (Only one American Express Card can be connected per Cardmember. Terms and conditions apply*), and quantities are limited, so make that last dash for the shops! With all this money saved, maybe that Chanel bag I’ve been eyeing up can be mine after all?! Just told tell my husband. Or my bank manager. Thanks!
