WHICH BRA?

I just ordered this dress from the Beyoncé collection at H&M and I need a bra to go with it! Which one out of the two shall I go for?

The dress has a cut-out panel at the back in which you can see the back of a bra and I’d like one of these bras so that you can just see the matching lace, I’m not quite confident enough, or well endowed enough, to go without! I’d love to know what you think.

You can purchase the dress online or in store from H&M, £14.99.
Top bra is £11.99 from New Look and the bottom bra is £9.99 from H&M. Both are available online.

TRUTH OR DARE? FOOTWEAR BY MADONNA

I suppose I could be slated for being a bit of a hypocrite, because this blog post is praising something which I am usually wholeheartedly against… Celebrity- endorsed fashion lines. Madonna and her creative director Arianne Philips have teamed up with the Aldo Group Inc to design a new range of shoes set to be launched for Fall 2012. Now, it usually makes my fashion brain ache when I hear that a celebrity has come out with some sort of line of clothing that they “designed”, and don’t get me wrong, I’m sure Madonna didn’t exactly sit down and sketch for hours on end. However, I do have a lot of respect for Madonna and typically jump to her defence at the drop of a hat.
Having recently teamed up with Dolce & Gabbana to launch her own range of sunglasses with them and launched her Material Girl Collection with her daughter Lourdes, it seems Madonna may have caught the design bug.
So back to the shoes themselves, with print adverts being due to be released next month with Madonna herself featuring in them, and plans for herself and her dancers to wear modified versions on her new World Tour, there is no doubt that these shoes will be promoted to within an inch of their lives.
With prices ranging from $89 to $349, they are, I would say, the perfect price range for somebody who is trying to prove herself as a legitimate designer and not just a cash cow. Well okay, maybe not. Anyway, there are apparently over 60 styles available in the range including flats, heels, booties and Madonna’s ever-present and trusty over-the-knee boots.
With all this excitement buzzing around the shoes and the perfume she’s also releasing with the name ‘Truth or Dare?’ I sure can’t wait to see the rest of the line!
As well as shoes, there are currently plans to launch a range of intimates later this year and legwear and accessories in 2013! All hail the queen!
