Style Inspiration: April

Hello everyone! It's my favourite time of the month, when we get to see lovely Yours customers wearing our items and looking stunning! It's always so interesting to see the creativity and inventiveness of some of these styles - a true inspiration. Well, onwards we go...

The lovely Lorraine in our animal print tunic. Isn't she gorgeous?

Bella of the blog BellaStyles looks like an absolute film star in our ruffle shoulder maxi dress!

Crystal of Thicker Than Your Average Girl looks stunning in our printed maxi - though I can't get over her beautiful hair colour ;)

Zoe gets her high fashion model on with our 70's disco inspired tunic...

Curvy Canadian Karen rocks our wet look leggings for a night out at the cinema :D

Tiffany of Fat Shopaholic always has a daring and super on-trend style, and pairing our drape top with a midi pleated skirt is straight off the catwalk!

Letilor always looks superb in our creations, and this dainty look featuring our ruffle mini is just perfect.

Nadia of My Stylish Life always looks great in Yours, and this dressed-down outfit featuring our stripe terracotta tunic is just lovely.

The super talented Definatalie has been seen in a few Yours items this month, and always looks fantastic. Here she is making even our plain white tee look fabulous!

Rocking our floral tights...

And wearing our Studio 54 inspired tunic, like Zoe! Doesn't she look great?

The simply fabulous Vanoue looks outrageously funky in our printed jumpsuit!

The lovely Laura of What Laura Loves does the cute preppy look with the help of our jeggings...

Claire of A Monkey Fatshionista goes for the eccentric English countryside look with our stripy tights...

And here she is with our grey tights, too! Love the country garden aesthetic, Claire!

Last but not least...

Nicola of 2 Many Cupcakes looks awesome in our floral tights!

PHEW. That's all for this month folks - but if you'd like to be featured in May's style inspiration, then you can always comment, tweet or facebook your photos and links. Can't wait to see your styles. :D

Lots of love,

Celebrity Look: Helen Mirren

Hey everyone, hope you're all having a fab week so far. And who is excited about the royal wedding tomorrow? There'll definitely be a few fashion tips from that...

But before then, let's see this week's celebrity look - none other than Helen Mirren! Helen is one classy dame who's no stranger to royal endeavours having played The Queen herself, but it's always a joy to see her on the red carpet, proving that you can be sexy and alluring no matter what age you are!

I absolutely loved her look for the Arthur premiere last week, a full on rock chic look that was still undeniably classy. How does she do it? And more importantly, how can you get the look? Well, it seems Yours are able to answer that question for you...

Heels, Iron Fist

What do you think of this look? I'd love to know your comments and thoughts. Is there anyone whose look you'd like me to feature? Let me know! As always, you can comment, tweet or facebook me.

Until next time...

Yours Clothing Press round up!

Hi everyone! Before today's post I have to remind you that we have HALF PRICE next day delivery until 3pm TODAY - make sure you get in quick!

It's time for this month's press round up! Some fab magazines have featured us, which is wonderful. Here we go...

Woman magazine loved our chandelier earrings inspired by Eva Longoria!

Yours magazine (great name, don't you think?) used our feather print maxi dress for a makeover shoot!

Take A Break Specials used our pearl necklace, pink diamante corsage and peach maxi for their spring fashion special.

Playgirl magazine love our diamante bracelets, and are hosting a giveaway for one of our lip print t-shirts!

Prima Baby think our denim maxi (coming soon) is perfect for stylish mums to be.

Whereas Prima loves our nautical stripe t-shirt with fashionable sleeves (coming soon).

Pick Me Up magazine love our printed shirt and smudge print jacket.

More magazine used our gold clutch as a perfect accessory for a night out!

Love It magazine used our pink military dress in their rainbow feature!

Finally, Look magazine love our cropped denim shirt (coming soon). Fabulous!

Celebrity Look: Elizabeth Taylor

Hello everyone, how are we all? We've got a great deal on summer maxi dresses this week - you can get 2 maxis for only £35! Isn't that a bargain? Make sure you look at our daily deals for even more... ;)

This week's celebrity look is the late, great Liz Taylor. Liz was a true icon, and always had an eye for glamorous, avant garde fashion. But in amongst the photos of her outrageous headpieces and ballgowns came this lovely photo of her on holiday back in the 60's. As the sun is beginning to shine here in the UK, I felt this was a great look to recreate...

Coral chiffon tunic, £32

I think this is a great look for summer. If you're not as confident as Liz to go bare-legged, then a pair of our leggings would work brilliantly!

Celebrity Look: TOWIE's Jessica

Hello everyone, HAPPY FRIDAY! Hope you have a fabulous weekend ahead? It's been really great to see your feedback regarding footwear and we will be taking on board everything you say to make sure we have a fabulous - and comfortable - collection!

Have all of you been watching The Only Way Is Essex? It has to be seen to be believed, but it's been a huge TV hit in the past few months. I actually live in the same area as the cast, but believe me my life is NOTHING like that! However, I really liked Mark's sister Jessica's outfit this week...

Jess' maxi dress is by Ax Paris, who actually make clothes in plus sizes for us! So I dug around, and found a really sweet and similar outfit here at Yours:

This is a perfect outfit for spring, especially paired with some gold sandals like Jess! Hope you like the outfit as much as me - remember you can always leave a comment, tweet me or leave a message on our facebook page, can't wait to chat!

Lots of love, and have a fab weekend!

Hi all, how excited are you about our new footwear? Remember we want as much information as possible so we can provide you with the most comfortable and stylish footwear around! Check out our facebook page where I'll be posting questions on what kind of footwear you'd like to see.

As well as shoes, there have been some stunning new clothing arrivals at Yours in the past week, that I have to bring to your attention! Acid bright tunics, floral dresses, and elegant maxis are all here!

OMG, shoes!

Hello everyone, hope you've all been incredibly well! I hinted on Facebook last week that there is some rather exciting news to come from Yours HQ, and now I can tell you!

In the next few weeks, we will be launching a footwear range! And you know what this means, right? Yes... SHOES!

But of course, your input is invaluable to us. We'd love your ideas on what are the most important factors when it comes to buying shoes. Is it comfort? Is it style? Is it fit? Are there things you're willing to overlook for a fashionable shoe?

For the next few days on our Facebook page, I will be posing questions on what shoes you would like to see in store at Yours Clothing.

Personally, I can't wait! What are your thoughts? Remember you can always let me know, and your comments and suggestions will go straight to our footwear buyer.

Celebrity Look: Anne Hathaway

Hello you lovely lot, how are you? Hope you had a fantastic weekend! Did you take advantage of our half price delivery offer before Sunday? Hope so! Remember to keep in touch via twitter or facebook to get the low down on any deals or offers!

This week's celebrity style icon is the lovely Anne Hathaway. Hathaway is proving herself to be a real trend setter, especially after her mammoth 8 costume changes when she hosted this year's Oscars and of course, her star making role in The Devil Wears Prada.

I loved her soft, feminine and bohemian Dolce & Gabbana dress that she wore to the premiere of her new film Rio last week, and I was so happy to see the guys at Yours have a similar tunic that I went and recreated the whole outfit...

I love how romantic and feminine this is, and perfect for summer! Those of you who are conscious of your legs may prefer to wear leggings with this tunic, as it is rather short. I do love how with Yours, it's possible the emulate the style of A list celebrities and models, even when you're plus size!

I'd love to know what you think of this look. Are there any celebrities you'd like me to look into? Let me know! You can comment on this blog, tweet me, facebook me or drop me an email. I'd love to hear from you!

Lots of love,
