Ooo I came across a handful of horrors today which are truly shocking. First up is Jordan's dress for the launch of her new perfume 'Stunning'. The word meringue can't be used for this dress because its beyond that. I always fail to see why women choose huge puff balls for their own wedding dresses as most of the time they just look totally OTT and too fairytaleish. Jordan's dress is also very much OTT for a perfume launch - what happened to being casual?
Next up is Topshop's 'wet look wrap skirt' which is truly awful! There's absolutely no shape whatsoever and even though it costs £40, it looks cheap. I'm surprised at Topshop; I know that the 'wet look' is on the up but this skirt is definitely not! Besides, just what would you wear it with? It would certainly be hard to pull off (literally too, I'm sure! Ha ha)
There's some nice clothes on delias.com but this top is not one of them. Animal print is a tricky one - choose a few select pieces such as one top or a pair of shoes in leopard print or a small handbag and its effortlessly fashionable. But, choose a tacky top or go overboard with animal print coat, animal print top and animal print trousers (i.e. all worn at once) and you've instantly ruined its appeal for innocent passers by. This has happened to me on numerous occasions; I'll just be starting to think that animal print isn't so bad and that maybe I should go back for those shoes when bam! someone walks past head to toe in the stuff and it will put me off for another few months. Anyway, back to the top. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad without the splashes of colour ... ok, so it would. I really hate the cut of the top too and I'm sure it would do few people any favours (especially non-supermodel people who aren't size 00 and are mere mortals)

L-R: Striped dress by Sonia Rykiel, £50 from £100. Dress with bib by Anna & Boy, £65 from £125. Corseted Herringbone dress by Dolce & Gabbana, £965. But then I saw these awful pieces and recoiled in horror! I wouldn't have them if they were free, never mind pay the price tag!
L-R: Long sleeve printed dress by Chloe (YES! BY CHLOE! I'M AS SHOCKED AS YOU ARE!), £555 from £1,110. Velvet dress with halterneck by Christopher Kane, £1,560. Scarlett O'Hara dress by Christopher Kane, £1,830. Dress with ruched neck by David Szeto, £330 from £465.
The question is, which is the worst? Feel free to comment!

L-R: Printed Maxi Dress, Warehouse £85. Strapless viscose dress, Yves Saint Laurent £940. Print Maxi Dress, Dorothy Perkins £12 from £20. Brown festival Maxi, Miss Selfridge £30 from £45.
And for shorter girls, how about this gorgeous dress from Topshop for £65? Perfect with flip flops for day wear and equally perfect with heels and a clutch for a night out. That's what I call value for money.

In a way, fashion has used Dali's take on images and used the idea to create accessories which are unusual, in the same sense as the clocks. Take watering can handbags for instance, seen frequently on the arm of Fiz from Coronation Street. They are being used for another purpose like Dali's objects.
The same can be said for handbags in the shapes of dogs (click here for some truly awful dog handbags), the fish phone off Big Brother and a pair of earrings that I have. So there you have it; a semi-intelligent-arty post about accessories.

I just had to express my disgust at Shanessa Reilly's hideous pink dress which she wore when entering the Big Brother house and when visiting the housemates in the main house. I doubt it would even look good on a skinny supermodel! It really doesn't do anything for her and we could see all the flab spilling out! It barely covered her boobs either and as for that slit up the middle! (since when were slits there?!) Anyway, to cheer everyone up after seeing that picture, I found this lovely blue dress from Miss Selfridge for £40.
