Shop Spotlight: Miss Selfridge
First Warehouse, then Topshop, now Miss Selfridge - all shops which have fallen off my radar in recent years currently have clothing that has gone right to the top of my wish list! What's going on?! Maybe it's due to the lady-likeness of the AW 2011 catwalks and the highstreet is mirroring this, or that the 30s, 40s and 70s have remained big influencers in fashion this season, but the high street is starting to look a little more grown up and luxe.
One look at the Miss Selfridge AW 11 lookbook and you can see the difference in styling, silhouette and fabrics, which is a long way from their typical teenage customer's typical look. I'm really loving lots of their clothing (and shoes) at the moment, especially the pussy bow shirt dresses, skater dresses, midi skirts, chiffon shirts and 40s style tea dress. There's still lots of black lace, body-con and jersey mix-and-match items, but Miss Selfridge seems to have grown up.
Here are my top picks from the Miss Selfridge AW 11 drop that's in stores now (I've tried to include other items besides dresses. This was tough).
