H&M Garden Collection

I walk past the H&M on Corporation Street in Birmingham every day and this week I got very excited when I saw the new Garden Collection being put into the window. It is perfect for this Spring/Summer with lots of my favourite floral dresses. I'm a big fan of the red prom dress. Made with recycled and organic materials you get to feel 'Green' about buying this collection too!

I get the feeling this collection won't be around for long though. I just wish H&M would catch on and set up an online shop in the UK. The already have one in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Holland, Norway and Sweden. I just get annoyed as the shop assistants never seem to know where an item is or when it is coming in to store.

A Spring In My Step

I find it really really hard to get beautiful, fashionable shoes that are comfortable and fit well because of my very odd size feet. Selina from Flying Saucer did a post today about the beautiful platform shoes from Miu Miu's Spring/Summer 2010and I felt a strange pang as I know there is no way I could walk in them.

Instead I will be spending my spring in some brogues! These are perfect for me and although they have been around for a while now they seem to be everywhere right now. I cant wait to get my hands on this pair from Office which are a mixture between a brogue and a Jazz shoe. I think they would also look good with some lovely ankle socks!

Suddenly I See

I have been having problems this week trying to pick out my new glasses frames. Geek frames have been seen all over recently but it seems every opticians only stock the same frames. Strugeling for inspiration I have been looking around online instead. My top picks for on trend frames include Prism Round Frame Glasses, YSL 6224 and Ray-ban 5121. Get your eyes tested in a shop then buy online for bargin frames. Specs4less will even do a refund or exchange perscription frames even if you don't like the colour.

I'm feeling Greige

Ok so top of my lust list this week is Chanel Varnish Le Vernis in Particuliere. This is a grey/beige shade that has been nicknamed 'Greige.' This is the shade that has been seen on Lilly Alan in the latest add campaign and is set for be the hottest shade for Spring 2010. The sad news is it's already sold out in store and is going on Ebay for around £40. I have to have it but can I justify spending so much on a bottle of nail varnish?

Welcome to An Inch of Style

Welcome to An Inch of Style. I have been meaning to put this blog together for ages. Inspired by some of those in my blog list I have finally done it. It will be a place for all my style finds and the things I am lusting after. I'm very much a budget fashionista but I believe you don't have to have a massive budget to be fashionable...just an inch of style should do it. If you like anything you find here then please leave me a comment.
