#25 The Artist

With the release of "The Artist" in 2011 my prediction for the trend of this spring is the 1920's as this lovely sweetheart shows... I would've added a feathered fascinator and a pair of kitten healed pumps though... maybe a string of pearls...
£60 from Tesco

#24 Every woman loves flowers

This amazing dress wouldn't look out of place in an air raid and for a tiny £20 at Tesco... Can you afford NOT to buy one?

#23 You can never have enough...

This amazing art deco style handbag would add a touch of class to any outfit and at only £35 from Coast you could afford to buy any outfit!

#22 Who's a pretty girl then?

This amazing parrot dress is only £42 from Oasis, just picture it with some little court shoes and a little pillbox hat.

#21 £20?! Fur real?!!!

Can you believe that this lovely fur coat is only £20?! Primark, you sweetheart!

#20 Not deer at all!

Unbelievably this amazing deer necklace was only a quid! Primark, you old sweetheart. (Sorry no link for this, you'll just have to pop in to your local Primark)

Outfit #1 The Marlene

So here is my take on the classic Marlene Dietrich outfit.  Although it is virtually impossible to find authentic waist high trousers on the high street these would look great under the fitted jacket.

This lovely Prince of Wales Jacket is from Jigsaw at £155
with matching trousers at £75.
(I will be searching high and low for a cheaper version of this suit but you have to admit that they are sweeeeeeetttt!

This beret is from American Apparel at £21 but you can find them much cheaper if you compromise on the quality.

Tie, from the one and only TieRack, half price at the moment at £10.49

Shoes Clarks for a snip at £59.99

This perfect Oxford shirt is only £29.95 from GAP

And to top the whole thing off add a Hanky from M&S

#14 Give me an A!

From time to time, especially with Primark, I am going to try my hand at modelling... Here I am in a lovely jumper at only £15! I have teamed it with a pair of Freddies of Pinewood jeans and some Clarks pumps to give a 50's highschool vibe... Gooooooo Primark!

#13 Katharine's pants

Just found these lovely Sweethearts... Team with a white silk blouse, heals and some pearls for one look... A smart shirt and tie with brogues for another... Very Miss Hepburn would love...

Only £38 from Next
