Maybe a degree is worth it after all....

I was contemplating on doing a post on the new
Intimate Apparel section
on Not Just A Label..
I even started one but never had the chance to finish it.
whilst doing my research I realized that I mainly
wanted to draw attention
to all the lovely designers that also studied
at De Montfort University
either the Contour Fashion course or
the Joint Fashion and Contour course.

Please make sure you go check out the new Intimate Apparel section.
You definitely won't be disappointed.
Not Just A Label
Not Just A Label Intimate Apparel

Now you can call me biased coming from the same Uni
but I genuinely like the collections.
It is also inspiring to see these graduates with respectable
and ever growing, popular businesses.
In times where a there are less jobs for graduates and
a degree seems to get you nowhere,
it gives me some hope that with some hard work and dedication
that I could one day turn my ideas for a business
in to a reality.

Nichole De Carle

It has been an impressive year for Nichole De Carle. Not only was she chosen to
to be the featured lingerie designer for the launch of
Not Just A Labels Intimate Apparel section
but has also been scooped up by Luxury department store
Most recently Nichole de Carle has taken part
in The Lingerie Collective pop up boutique in London showcasing
alongside other luxury lingerie designers.


Lascivious launched in 2004 and since then has gained a list of celebrity fans
as well as being featured in well know magazines vogue,
marie claire and cosmopolitan to name a few.
Now recognised world wide, Lascivious is sold in Victoria Secrets
stores across the USA as well as reputable UK stores and boutiques including
Selfridges and Coco de Mer.
You can also find this brand along with Nichole de Carle in the Lingerie Collective Pop
Up boutique.

Others that aren't on Not Just A Label

Obey My Demand

A relatively new brand on the lingerie scene. Obey my Demand is a luxury
lingerie and bodywear brand specialising in leather.
Differentiating from other luxury lingerie
brands, Obey my Demand
has combined both contemporary style and luxury fetish,
to create these empowering designs.
Obey my Demand has already dressed the likes of Alesha Dixon at the MOBO Awards
and can be bought at

Nicole Gill Lingerie

The most recent of graduates is Nicole Gill. Nicole Gill Lingerie specialises in bespoke
corsetry. Since graduating Nicole Gill was chosen to take part in Alternative
Fashion Week. There has been a real buzz around her welcome
to the tea collection, most recently being approached and taking part in
the current Clothes Show live in Birmingham.
It is hard not to see the exquisite craftsmanship in each garment
and with a recent photo shoot for a Macmillan charity calender
under her belt, it won't be long
before Nicole Gill Lingerie known world wide.

Asos Marketplace

Asos Marketplace has finally arrived.
Actually it has been up a short while now
I kind of forgot about it... Oops!
Imagine a taking a bit of Ebay (selling items over the internet)
thrown together with a bit of Etsy (handmade products from designers)
and you have Asos Marketplace.

What I like about this site is that anybody can set up a profile and sell unwanted clothing,
and in doing so allows users to upload photos of themselves wearing
the garments they are trying to sell. The difference
between Asos Market place and ebay is that everybody looks fashionable
and I think this makes a great selling point.
Not only that but the site itself is sleek and stylish.

So lets push aside the unwanted old items and possible unwanted gifts
and get to the really interesting part and also my favourite.
Added to all of the above are boutiques and up and coming
designers that can use Asos Marketplace to sell their work.

All in all, it is an exciting concept, and with Asos being a top online retailer
it is not only a good way of promoting new talent but
also to get a completely unique design.

One surprise I had when having a browsing through the products was the lingerie
section. I didn't expect to see much, If anything but there were some
really unique and interesting pieces.

My favourite pieces were from designer Mark Fast and Electric Ibiza (which
until today I had never come across)
Below are the pieces which caught my eye...

Clockwise from top left:

Electric Ibiza - Luxury Bodywear
Electric Amelia Aztec Harness Bra
32-38 A-D Cup

Electric Amelia Aztec Wide Strap Brief

So bored of....NO WAIT.

I recently turned the big 23
Ok so maybe not that big but I feel like
I am now being forced to become an adult...

With age comes responsibility, and all the rest...but with my age
comes a new found love for shops that I never particularly appreciated or
at least didn't see the fatal attraction that everybody else did.

Now I have never been one to really
keep too up to date with fashion
I preferred to wear jeans and a band t-shirt, so imagine my
surprise to suddenly be wanting to buy the entire shop.

My main two loves at the moment are

♥ River Island

♥ Topshop

I am completely obsessed with knitwear, wanting to buy
every jumper and cardigan I see.
Both Topshop and River Island have had some fantastic
pieces in at the moment.
Unfortunately I am currently poor so I will have to keep on wishing.

Here are a few of my favourites...
