Pick of the week - Karen Millen

I will always have a soft spot for Karen Millen.  After all, being a Sales Adviser there was the first job I ever had.  But as bias as my view may be, I still think it's by far the most exciting store out there.  You enter it and nothing's a mess.  There are no clashing colours stacked on top of each other.  It's not like that.  You don't enter it with a panic, wondering where on earth to start first.  Your eyes rest and they rest well, taking in all the glorious items in sight - it's a perfectionists dream. 

A lot may argue that the Karen Millen look can seem very samey - every season has the same styles, just slightly altered.  I have to whole-heartedly disagree with this.  For me, Karen Millen has always been about versatility.  It's your one stop shop for the perfect prom dress, but also the place to go for your weekend casual look.  The clothes last, not just in quality, but in style.  Yes, it's on the higher end of the high street prices, but the items aren't throwaways - they're beautiful investments.
I love this lilac, 20s pleat dress.  The fabric feels amazing and once on, you'll never want to take it off.  I've teamed it with this glistening deco beaded jacket (limited edition so do hurry!).  It's one of my favourites by far because it can literally be worn with anything. 
The organza clutch is heaven sent.  I wore this to an event and I have never received so many compliments, and the shoes are a must-have. 
If you want to splurge on one fashion item this month, make sure it's from Karen Millen.
