Laden Showrooms Collections – Emily’s Summer Daywear (1/4)

Tuesday 4th August 2009

Emily’s First Installment of the A/W Collections – Laden Showrooms 30th July 2009.

It’s August now. Despite the abysmal weather that we is currently sweeping across England, I am remaining optimistic about the prospect of us seeing some sunshine in the next few weeks. More importantly, I refuse to give up on my summer wardrobe just yet! And so, without further ado, I would like to bring you the best style ideas for summer day wear, from our little trip to the Laden Showrooms blogger event on Friday 30th June 2009.

 For those of you who don’t already know, I’m a bit of a vintage whore. What I particularly loved about Laden Showrooms was that many of the designers had taken influences from vintage fashions, but with an added twist! Which brings me to my absolute favourite designer of the day…


Firstly, don’t worry. If you’re anything like me, you read the word designer and think ‘Forget it. I’m not made of money.’ But here’s the beauty of it, many of the cute little dresses we saw were only £55 (not bad for such designer labels, eh?)! And this layered skirt tulip dress can be purchased from ASOS for only £33.50!

Jones & Jones £33.50

I really loved the delicate bows and pretty florals. A lot of the dresses were minis, but the use of high neck lines, and feminine patterns and fabrics prevents sluttiness for a cute baby doll look! They had some stunning 80s skater style- perfect for garden parties!


DUKE & DUCHESS also had super-cute 80s style pinafore dresses with miniature floral patterns. This one is £65 from ASOS. So lovely for picnics!

 Duke and Duchess 65.00


I fell in love with had this beautiful 70s romantic era style dress by METEOR SHOWER. The one we saw was cream, but they have similar ones in black on ASOS (for only £28!!!). I just love the floaty chiffon fabric… I can just imagine wearing it in a rose garden, hair adorned with flowers, being pushed on a swing by a handsome young man… anyway, I digress.

JARLO had some lovely dresses and tunics, also in light floaty materials, perfect for summer. Really bright block colours, for those of you with loud personalities! We were loving the 80s style batwing sleeves (great for avoiding sweaty summer armpits!)

Lastly, if you want to make a real summer statement, you’ll love the detail on the clothes by LOVE YOU LONG TIME! Jersey dresses and mini 70s-80s styles denim skirts,  embellished with hearts, bows, stripes, spots, and strawberries for a really bright, fun summery look!

 Love you long time


So that’s my pick of the bunch for summer day wear. Stay tuned… next I’ll be bringing you the best of summer evening fashion!

Love Emily x x x
