Spring/Summer at Republic

Another day, another look book, this time from the folks at Republic, a shop I mistakenly brushed off as specialists in tracksuits and hoodies and not much more.

I guess it’s once again time for me to eat my words as these images above have no sportswear insight and instead kick start some lusting for brightly colour denim and all things ditsy and floral. I don’t know what has happened to me, actually. Little miss jeans hater is now wanting to fill her wardrobe with everything from skinnies to flares, and a recent shopping trip and venture in to a Republic store told me that these pictures are just the beginning…one to watch, for sure!

Has anywhere exceeded your expectations this season?


Well Damn, Damart

When Damart got in touch with their Autumn/Winter lookbook (styled by London College of Fashion Students) I didn’t expect to be impressed, although I should have known better having previously having to eat my words about them.

Someone got a hot new makeover!

A mixture of beautiful knits, faux fur, dresses and tailoring Damart has re-vamp and is starting to appeal to a younger audience.

Prices are good, a knit will set you back around £33 and there are some gorgeous accessories to compliment the collection…

and of course, it wouldn’t be a Laura post without a mention of the shoes!

Chunky boots with a Thermolactyl lining to keep feet snug? I’m SOLD. Not to mention a huge range of what made Damart famous…THERMALS!

Well done Damart,
I’m a convert.

What do you think?
