Friday Frock O’clock

I’m never sure how I feel about style steal looks that appear on the high street of designer collections. It always seem a little bit naughty but there’s no denying there’s a market for it and at the end of the day, all high street fashion is influenced by the catwalk collections from top designers.

Already featured online in a couple of places and in Look Magazine, I couldn’t help but share this dead-ringer of a dress by River Island. I’m a huge fan of la Beckhams’s ‘Victoria’ collection, (you can read all about it here,) so I’m seriously considering making a purchase of this copy cat frock.

Pay day has been and gone, if you’re not spent up already do share your favourite lust-have items this week by dropping a comment in the box below – especially the bargains; We love a bargain frock here at Florence Finds 😉

Love,

Spotted: Victoria by Victoria Beckham

I am somewhat partial to a dress, and I’m also a massive fan of Victoria Beckham’s now established transition from pop superstar to incredibly impressive fashion designer. Even better, her designs are seen on so many celebrities and although some of you might be surprised at this, look equally good on curvier ladies as women with a similarly petite frame to Mrs Beckham herself.

So it was with great interest that I heard last year that she was bringing out a diffusion line of, you guessed it, dresses. Aimed at a more accessible price point depending on how you look at it of £375-995, which is substantially less than her main line which runs in to the ££££’s.

If you’re not familiar with her usual style Victoria is famous for impeccably cut sheath dresses for seriously upmarket chic. The new collection is a departure from her usual in the biggest way, shorter, girlier, and more fun. Apparently, VB was inspired by Emily the Strange, a cultural point of reference that has totally passed me by, but the cute cat and moon prints aren’t lost on me at all.

I’m seriously in love. And whilst most of us aren’t lucky enough to be able to afford dresses like this for everyday, I think if you’re looking for a special outfit for say a wedding, a milestone birthday or event, there are some beautiful examples here that still retain a great deal of style quirk and statement appeal whilst remaining chic and stylish.
