Product Spotlight/ Coggles

Hey everyone, thank God it's Friday, huh? So today I decided it was time to share a little secret find of mine that I adore. It's another of those rare jewels in the world of online shopping that can cater to your every need.

Friends, it's time for you to be introduced to Home to nearly every beloved brand, both small and big, under the sun - I'm talking Dr Martens, Joseph, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Religion here people! Coggles is an absolute haven for designer wear, be it lesser know to the general public.

I feel it is my duty to share some of what I consider to be some of Coggles best products with you, so I shall.

The Fashion Edition: Product Spotlight/ Coggles

Here are nine of my favourite products on sale at Coggles. For all the prices, links and more just go to the Polyvore link above or here.

I think that these products are great. I love the top left shirt by Surface to Air because it looks so light and floaty but also will help you fit that Gothic trend for Autumn/Winter 2012, but in a softer more feminine way. This also applies to the shirt below the Surface to Air top, by Antipodium whose patent leather looking collar  creates a great contrast to the sheerness of the material.

Now to the M Missoni knitted dress. This is also going to be a big hit as it is such a great fluorescent colour but also has that dogtooth print, therefore covering the Heritage trend but in Missoni's own special way. Then we come to the Boy London leggings which I find Coggles are retailing at one of the lowest price compared to other retailers. I love this because really, I just love the Boy London brand - which isn't a great reason but oh well!

The vest top with the awesome pop art-y eyes is by Moschino Cheap and Chic, I think it would look fabulous when paired with some black jeans, or leather trousers - whatever floats your boat.

The tote bag is to die for. If you were to guess who it was by I'm sure you would come up with Pendelton or the other famous brands that incorporate aztec features, but no. This my friends is Ralph Lauren.

Then there are the Opening Ceremony shoes which are great if you want to tick off the Tomboy trend with style. The print is very appealing, making these loafers a huge hit in my eyes.

Finally I wanted to add the slippers by H by Hudson, as slippers are becoming such a huge feature in fashion and also this particular design is perfectly demonstrating the Baroque trend that I was harping on about when I last posted.

I hope you have liked these items and will be soon exploring Coggles for yourselves!

Rachel, out.

Trends/ Baroque 'n' Roll

Aloha, everyone. So for Autumn/Winter 2012 there are a whole host of incredible trends to tempt you. However, for me, one of the greatest trends is maximalism, often referred to as Baroque - meaning 'rough pearl'. This trend incorporates nearly excessive amounts of embellishments, ornamentation and prints inspired by the Baroque period of the 1600's in Rome.

The designers that were inspired by Baroque-esque most include Dolce & Gabbana and Balmain. Featuring FabergĂ© egg and vivid floral prints, lashings of gold embellishments, pearls, an array of fabrics in rich tones of ox blood red, gold, crushed deep black velvet, and cream.

I don't know about you but I certainly can't afford fresh-from-the-catwalk clothes, but thanks to the trickle-down fashion theory us norms can also get a taste of Baroque fashion without the sky high prices.
