To The Max

Maximilism. Pardon? - we hear you say! Well, those savvy amongst you will know that, right now, more is more! This season's most decadent trend is all about elaborate textures, gold, jewels, over the top dripping in jewellery and stacking your bling till there is no space left on you. The aim of the game is maximum impact to draw maximum attention. Shrinking violets need not apply! Here are our top tips and picks from our lovely boutique to get you started. Think big ladies and knock em dead!

Tip 1. Let it Glow - It is all about gold.

Tip 2. Bobby Dazzlers - HUGE earrings are a must

Tip 3 - Stacked jewels - more is more is more.

Tip 4 - Blinging arm candy. Make it shine - the more ostentatious the better!

Pippa Middleton & The Steamy Clutch

Ok, so it's not a budding romance with a famous celeb but we are all excited about Pippa Middleton's colour popping clutch she was seen out in recently. We are huge fans of the clutch and they are having a massive fashion moment right now. 

Obviously, the world wide problem of actually carrying them for a whole night whilst avoiding the dreaded - "I just put it down for a moment" issues still plague our thoughts but, you know what? A good clutch is totally worth it. 

We love the look of a sleek clutch against a sexy LBD or a pop of colour against your favourite skinny jeans and blazer combo. So, in honour of the hand held arm candy, we have selected a couple of our favourites and you can even bag yourself  (see what we did there) Pippa's very own clutch in a variety of delicious colours - our fav being the totally on trend leopard print beauty below. Ladies, get clutching! (Handbags of course - naughty!)

Sherbet and Metal - Match made in Mulberry Heaven!

Ok, so LFW is seriously distracting! We have fallen in love with the Mulberry collection with its almost edible outfits in sherbet tones and metallic brocades and accessories. Oh, and they have, again, added some canine fashion – this time in the shape of a miniature Schnauzer – awesome.

Introducing the Dogwalk.

I think this might actually might be edible.

Metallics featuring heavily in SS12 collections - Bling!

Marvellous Metallics
Whilst sherbet may be a bit too summery for right now, we reckon the metallic tones would work well as part of an autumnal pallet too. Check out the Rock My Vintage collection to work this into your wardrobe and stay a hop, skip and long jump ahead of the fashion pack.

Made His Marc

We were so excited about the Marc Jacobs SS12 collection and he didn't disappoint! We love the 20s inspired flapper style tasselled skirt with a modern twist in metallic sharp edges. Everything had a shimmering edge and was full of seductive speak easy charm. We are wishing away the winter and day dreaming of a time when we can work this divine look. Nom Nom Nom.

Swing Me.

If you are looking for some feet stomping, hip swishing, jazz hands action this weekend - swing by the Electro Speakeasy on the Southbank London. There will be a great mix of vintage music reworked with an electro beat. In collaboration with White Mink who make some fab electro swing compilations, this is set to be a day time festival of ear tingling wonderfulness. This is what we like best - vintage with a modern twist - why that's RMV too. Match made in heaven! See you there - dancing pants off. x

I'm A Lady!

Well, at least we can try and look like one even if the power to act like one escapes us from time to time! AW is all about lady of the manor chic and we have to admit we love the thought of adorning pussy bows, soft tweeds and tonnes of decadent aristocratic jewellery. Ya darling! Fear not though, even if you are more ladette than lady you can still nod to this trend by simply adding a vintage silk scarf to your neck – an accessory that can lift anything from your battered aviator to your favourite skinnie jeans, sneakers and knit combo.
For us, the pussybow is key and there are already one or two of these little beauties appearing on the RMV ladies. Prim and proper, vintage twist and just the right amount of cheeky bold print to keep it not so serious. Bingo – AW trend nailed. Thank you kindly. x

Great Scot!

Great Scot Emma Watson looks tartan-licious in this McQueen 50s style prom dress! Tartan will be a massive part of the Heritage look this season and toughening it up with leather and patent gives it a thoroughly modern twist. If you think it's a bit much to wear from head to toe - try a vintage handbag for a more understated take on the trend! PS we want those shoes too.
