Online shopping hotspot My-Wardrobe has collaborated with British designer Tabitha Webb to create a gorgeous summer dress to raise funds for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, the flagship fashion campaign of Breakthrough Breast Cancer, with 30% of profits going directly to the charity. This is your chance to help raise awareness and funds for a worthy cause as well as investing in a beautiful statement frock.
Celebrities such as Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Kate Moss, Elle Macpherson, Georgia May Jagger and Kylie Minogue have all joined forces with renowned photographers such as Mario Testino, Simon Emmett and Ellen Von Unwerth to show their support for the charity so now it is your turn. Continuing to unite the British public by making people aware of Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s lifesaving work will help raise vital funds and change lives.
The exclusive My-Wardrobe Sundance dress is perfect for garden parties, weddings and other events this season as it is crafted from a delicate pale pink silk with a lovely wild cherry blossom print. The garment is cut in one of Tabitha Webb’s renowned hourglass silhouettes which is a flattering shape for all women. Detailing is subtle yet beautiful and comes in the form of feminine white lace inserts, complimenting the demure pastel like hue of the dress. The design of the frock is also timeless and fits in with this season’s trends for Laduree inspired colours and Oriental prints.
A collaboration for a worthy cause like this needs to be spoken about and shared so why not add the exquisite Sundance dress to your summer wardrobe for understated feminine luxury and help raise funds for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. The on-trend frock will be your go-to outfit for special events this season so wear it with pride and give it a personal edge with your favourite summer accessories.

Sandals are normally the shoe of choice for summer and are a great way of adding a bit of glamour to ensembles no matter what the occasion. Shoes of Prey, the online company that offers women the opportunity to design their own shoes, has recently collaborated with one of Australia’s most influential fashion designers Carla Zampatti to create three fabulous sandals for this season.
These gorgeous heels feature two straps and come in three colourways; nude, black and snakeskin. The collection pushes Carla’s signature minimalist aesthetic in a bold new direction whilst still appealing to shoe fanatics who appreciate simplicity with a slight edge. The long tassel detailing on the back of each style creates a subtle femininity allowing for a bit of movement to give them that ‘swishing’ feel when you walk. You’ll feel like you’re on the catwalk!
Carla Zampatti says:
“Not only stunning, the shoes feel great to wear and make a woman feel great wearing them. Nothing is more appealing than that.”
They’ll easily compliment the all-white trend or the more bolder styles we’re seeing this season like exotic prints, neon flashes and floral. Contemporary dressing has never been so achievable! And in true Shoes of Prey style, shoppers can edit the colours as well as the materials of each sandal to create a shoe that is a little more personal and unique.
It’s time your feet were freed from the restraints of boots and ballet pumps and got a little fresh air this season so add a pair of the Carla Zampatti sandals to your summer wardrobe – they are a total investment!
The sandals are available from www.ShoesOfPrey.com priced at £149.00 each.

The thought of traipsing round the shops trying to put together an outfit is rather off putting and time consuming, especially in all the horrible winter weather that’s gracing us with its presence. A newly launched website based around shopping, styling and the latest trends has come into my fashion radar recently though called Fantasy Shopper.
Everyone has access to their favourite high street and designer brands in one place on this site allowing them to fantasy shop without spending any money. It’s kind of like window shopping but you can save your most wanted looks and items making up a wish list. Browse through a huge collection of clothing, shoes and accessories from stores like Topshop, Miss Selfridge, Mango, All Saints, Office, Karen Millen, Lulu Guinness, Kurt Geiger and loads more!
A great feature to the site is that you can shop with your friends, ask for their recommendations and style advice as well as create virtual outfits with those items you fantasy shop. This way you’ll be able to see what they will look like before you go out and purchase anything for real. A fabulous less time consuming way of shopping! Try out different shapes, designs and colours to find the perfect combination that will be sure to turn heads. You could spend hours putting together fabulous creations then share with family and friends to see what they think. Swap inspiration and ideas to make the most of the experience.
Cocosa is the leading online designer website for handpicked luxury and re-launched on Tuesday 6th November 2012 to incorporate a more luxurious feel marking the continuing growth of the site.
I only recently discovered Cocosa and was surprised it hadn’t popped up on my fashion radar sooner. It is an amazing website that sells designer clothes in time limited sales at fantastic prices. A shopaholic’s paradise! They work with over 500 brands including Diane Von Furstenberg, See by Chloe and Pringle of Scotland to bring together the most fashionable womenswear and menswear at a fraction of the retail price. You’ll be able to get your designer fix without completely destroying your bank account – genius!
The new-look site boasts new photography, which makes a bold statement embodying a luxury lifestyle, and new aspects including zoom functions and customer recommendations. This will help to improve the overall customer experience whilst remaining practical and functional. The sleek design is easy to navigate round enticing you to delve into the gorgeous selection of designer goodies and be inspired by beautiful fashion.
Cocosa has also gone one step further and is the first e-tailer to use responsive logic and works with the ‘one size fits all’ motto. This means the wireframe is coded to react to the range of devices that the site could be viewed on including mobiles, tablets and computers, making it a fully compatible website to cater to all technological needs. Ideal as most people are always on the go these days, leading the way in how e-commerce sites are designed and developed.
Cocosa’s CEO David Llamas says:
“The re-launch of Cocosa’s website marks a significant time for us. We want to focus on confirming Cocosa within the luxury market and aim to reflect this through the fantastic relationships we have with renowned designers across the world, plus our dedicated loyalty offerings for our customers. The re-launch also ties in with our fourth birthday celebrations which in itself, marks a monumental occasion for the brand – a perfect time to re-launch and showcase the growth of Cocosa.”
Another addition to the re-launched website is a live Edit section which will be displayed so fashionistas can keep up-to-date on all the latest trends and Cocosa blog posts so make sure you go check it out. It is a great place to shop if you’re looking for an investment piece, seasonal wardrobe must-haves or a gift for a loved one. Cocosa is a place where designer fashion and style meets affordability!
