“Blink” Retail: Heidi Klein Pre-Resort

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

When you live the rather fabulous life that Heidi Klein caters for, you not only need a ‘Resort’ collection for those Winter sun escapes, but you also need a ‘pre-Resort’ collection for your pre-holiday holiday. With swimwear and chic beach dressing like this, why wouldn’t you take every opportunity to show it off? Here are some of our favourite looks from this offer that dropped on the 15th October.

This first look is named ‘Bimini’ after the island in the Bahamas. Clean lines and linear shapes look understatedly fabulous in minky neutral and black.

If you love a more classic French Riviera style look, then take a look at the lovely Corelli collection, blending a fine navy and white stripe on a textural base, detailed with a rope style trim. The team have created this super soft, slub jersey tee shirt dress style cover up, which I think is possibly one of the most flexible styles in their collection.

“Blink” Stylish Steals: ASOS Summer Sale Score!

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Who doesn’t love a bargain? ASOS is pretty much bargain central, whether it’s sale time or not and so is a regular haunt for me and the rest of the Blink London team. Whenever ASOS send one of their well placed marketing emails we are suckers every time. The last time we were totally distracted from the work in hand was when we got the email telling us that ASOS was on sale. Great news after their devastating warehouse fire. Well what more could we do than support them by placing an order or two?

This beauty just arrived, in perfect time to be tried on and then added to my pile of holiday packing. The pretty ‘Aztec Scarf Print Beach Dress’ was just what I needed to complete my holiday wardrobe and at £7.50 in the sale (down from an already reasonable £25) it’s even more gorgeous! I’ll be throwing it on over my bikini and then adding my  beaded belt to add a little more shape. Sorted.

Blink Retail: Tallulah and Hope SS’11 Collection

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

You may recall our interview with Zoe and Lisa of Tallulah and Hope, celebrating the launch of their wonderful new label. Here we are, a little further down the line and their kaftan collection has graced the beaches and boardwalks of some of the most desirable holiday locations, worn by some incredibly stylish women. We were so excited to hear that they are launching a new collection of print and pattern in their signature silhouettes, and even more delighted when Lisa and Zoe sent over the images so that we could showcase them here on the “Blink” blog for you all to be tempted by too!

We asked the T&H team about the inspiration behind the new offer and this is what they told us: ” This collection is titled ‘Minimal Glamour’ and, in keeping with our manifesto of elegant simplicity and refusal to bow to holiday wardrobe cliches, the new SS11 collection offers a sublime combination of kimono inspired prints with a striking yet demure colour palette.”

Lisa and Zoe have also added some perfect beach bags to their collection. These have been 100% ethically produced in collaboration with a small, artisan fair trade co-operative.  Both the ‘Boat’ Bag and ‘Tallulah Tote’ are made from palm fibre which is light, yet very strong and resilient.

All of the new styles will be available on the Tallulah and Hope website from the end of April. Well, now all we need is to book that holiday…
