GILLY HICKS GIRL
With London Fashion beginning on friday the rest of this weeks posts will focus on fashion found in London. Regent Street is one of our absolute favourite places to shop but until recently we’d never really bothered with Gilly Hicks - the Australian girl underwear offshoot of Abercrombie and Fitch. Finding the right knickers can be a bit of a nightmare, but if you’re looking for a new pair (or five) then Gilly Hicks has a fantastic offering. You can pick up five pairs for just £20! These knickers are £10 each when sold separately and come in a fantastic array of colours, fabrics and fits that change each season - a fantastic choice if you want to overhaul your underwear drawer for less
Gilly Hicks also retails online at http://uk.gillyhicks.com/shop/uk
Cosmetics are some of our most treasured treats at Luxe Slashed but the french pharmaceutical products are our absolute favourite. This week we wanted to showcase the cult product BIODERMA Sensibio H2O Micelle Water, also known as the Crealine H2O solution - and the most soothing cleanser we’ve ever known!
Also featured in last Sunday’s STYLE magazine, this incredibly popular product is a snip at just £14.50 for the 500ml version and is also available in smaller sizes.
If you can’t bulk buy it France then there are plenty of websites to order from, for more info or to purchase click here;
Credit crunch fashion
Today we wanted to take a closer look at buying fashion online and specifically purchasing through cashback websites. Normally we’d just go straight to the retailer but by taking a quick look at Quidco today (it’s just the first website we looked at) we saw cashback offers from ASOS, J.Crew and My Wardrobe, and that’s just a start. Obviously cashback websites should only be used if you are looking at buying something anyway - it’s easy to browse these sites and be tempted into buying something for the sake of it.
Our tip: Next time you feel an online splurge coming on it makes sense to have a quick look at a cashback sites. You could receive 10% back or great perks such as free next day delivery just by clicking through the site!
We LOVE Kerastase products at LuxeSlashed and although we’re often in search of a bargain- we always use professional grade products. Kerastase Christalliste is designed to give you a glossy mane and doesn’t weigh down your hair, extra bonus- it smells just like CHANEL Mademoiselle! These limited edited sets are available now in Kerastase salons (don’t buy online as you’ll only receive a correct Kerastase prescription if a stylist tests your hair) priced £36, the set includes a hair bath, conditioner and complimentary travel sized Elixir Ultime- what’s not to love?
SALE SUNDAY! The summer sales are all set to end this bank holiday weekend. Out of the designer heavy hitters, NET A PORTER finished a while ago but MY WARDROBE and MATCHES still have plenty of fashion finds still available.
Our pick of the MATCHES sale was this silk Sportmax Adamo dress ,the back is a little longer and solid black which is great in combination with the monochrome grid front - definitely a piece that will outlast this summer.
UNIQLO x Celia Birtwell
We LOVE a good designer collaboration and this one is a match made in high-street heaven! The silk-filled collection launched today, our pick is this glorious silk print dress in black, what’s yours?
Parisian Chic part two …The perfect blazer
Following on from the hunt for a cashmere v neck (we’re still searching) this week we looked for a great blazer as listed on the Parisian Chic essentials list to build your wardrobe around.
Blazers are tricky, if the fit isn’t perfect for you’re shape then don’t even think about buying. We wanted a longline boyfriend style but one that was slightly fitted, in navy or black - a classic piece to wear with anything so no fancy contrast stitching or quirky details.
Our favourite is this navy wool reis blazer with printed lining, now priced £49.99 in TK MAXX the REISS rep is £225 - quite a saving!
The perfect beach bag - It’s not too late to find the one!
At LuxeSlashed we want a beach bag to be colorful, hardwearing, spacious, comfortable to carry and fun. That’s why we think these Marcbymarcjacobs shoppers are in with a chance of the top spot, this one’s been dragged around for years and we love that it’s fading unevenly (it looks a bit to logo-ish and try-hard when pristine). Pick up these totes in a range of sizes and colours from black to neon pink in Marcbymarcjacobs stores. We bought this one in the Paris store (for around 30 euros) but have seen them in Milan, NYC and London too, they seem to be always available but you can’t buy them online, happy beach shopping ….
THE BLING RING
We’re huge fans of Sofia Coppola so tonight we ventured to go and see The Bling Ring, having already read the book we already knew the score and the film didn’t disappoint. After trying to grab the trailer of the website to post on here we found this - a link to buy the pieces worn in the film, what a great idea!
We love a red jacket and this one perfectly fits the lady like trend this AW.
The Moschino Cheap & Chic jacket is here, apart from a small stitched rip in the arm the condition is excellent- especially for under £13!
