ROCK and RAWR


The Rock Boutique hails from super cool Camden in foggy London town, where every item is designed and hand printed with the kind of love and attention that I give to a Timothy Olyphant movie, i.e. A LOT. It's clear to see the passion and pride that creator Jack has in his line, RB garments are almost born, rather than made, in his workshop. Each item is individual to it's brothers and sisters, and before they leave home it's instilled in them to become a favourite piece in your wardrobe; a go-to sweater or grab and go hoodie, the ones you can always rely on for that instant feel good fuzzy.

The Rock Boutique has a concession in Topshop Oxford Circus (also known to us as the mothership), dropping in Bentalls Kingston and Bracknell, and for us non Londoners (SOB!) RB can be ordered online from Crystal Inc. Boutique. Prices are around £35 for sweaters and £38 for hoodies with smaller pieces like tees, vests and shorts falling in under that, and numbers are limited which just adds to how much I covet a piece!

Some pics from the Topshop concession....squeeeee! Love the sleeve rolls!



My personal fave from the Spring line is the Back in Black sweatshirt, £35 as worn by Cher Lloyd. It has a huge leopard print heart on the front, and is just crying out to snuggle in my closet with my other babies!


The fun, bright graphics are too cute, I see something new everytime I look at these snaps, and the huge 'R' motif has a collegiate style to it, making these sweats a must have item for Spring/Summer this year as I'm sure the varsity letterman/college trend won't have escaped anyone here.





And finally, even Barbie has a little love for The Rock Boutique, and if Barbz is working a look, you KNOW it's good!


SO. Follow The Rock Boutique on Facebook for news and pics, and if you already own some RB, upload photos to the page and you could win prizes (!), feature in the fan pics section and maybe get on the soon to be launched RB website, yey!

J - R is for Rock.

What's Hawt? Traffic People!


I first fell in love with Traffic People a few years ago, after spotting lots of gorgeous pieces in the HUGE Topshop in London.

Some of my favourite dresses are from Traffic People & they are pretty well travelled! I've rocked them in cities such as Miami, to countries like Vietnam & Thailand. I want to take them with me wherever I go! ;)


Flaming Flamingos Playsuit, £54- Traffic People.

Yesterday I visited the Traffic People boutique in Bath. It's hidden away but I was so glad I stumbled across it. It's full of gorgeous pieces!

They had lots of Spring/Summer 2011 pieces in & I especially loved the Monet Madness print.


Monet Madness - Jessica Rabbit, £51- Traffic People.
Such a perfect party dress & a girl can never have too many party dresses! ;)


Monet Madness - Blessings Dress, £98- Traffic People.
I NEED. When I walked into the boutique yesterday, this was the first piece I noticed. So eye-catching!



Flaming Flamingos - Blessings Dress, £67- Traffic People.

This Flaming Flamingos print is fun & playful! I love this maxi dress & the playsuit shown at the top of the post. Traffic People always have original prints which is what makes their pieces so special.


Cocktails and Infidelity - Scallop Dress, £59- Traffic People.

How pretty is this dress? It has such a gorgeous shape. I think my boyfriend would love it as well. *HINT**HINT* Muhahaha!

It's also available in Baby blue, Blusher Pink, Coal & Olive.



Cocktails and Infidelity - Ranch Dress, £62
- Traffic People.

Again, this also comes in the above mentioned colours. I personally adore the olive colour! Delicious.

They have LOADS of bargains in their 50% off sale, so be sure to check it out!

Make sure you 'Like' them on Facebook to be kept up-to-date with all the latest Traffic People news.

T really is addicted to Traffic People. If you're in need of something edgy & cool, then look no further! ;) XoX

What's Hawt? Stolen Thunder!


Stolen Thunder was created (in the UK) by Alice Burlinson and Joy Frost. The label is inspired by playful childhood memories and everything is handmade!


Russian Doll Necklace, £37- Stolen Thunder.

I've been smitten with this brand since day 1. I gave one lucky pal the above Russian Doll Necklace (with the matching brooch) for chrimbo! It's handmade from bamboo and SO cute. Needless to say, she loved it ;)

Charm Bracelet, £42- Stolen Thunder.

Their designs are extremely unique with hand drawn graphics, teamed with diverse materials such as cherry wood, bamboo wood, supple Italian leather and vintage look chain.


These are my gorgeous little Nautical Stud Earrings, only £13.50! Again they are handmade from Eco friendly bamboo. Super quirky and adorable.


I love Gin/I love Tea Reversible Necklace, £31- Stolen Thunder.

J & I definitely need one of these each so we can have the Gin side showing at work & the Tea side showing at home!


I also have this gorgeous Russian Doll Face Statement Ring which you can buy for only £16.50. It's so sweet & I've had tons of compliments on it! She has such a cute little face.

I have a feeling I will be buying LOTS more Stolen Thunder in the future. Not just for me, but as gifts for my besties too!

Be sure to stalk them on Twitter & join their Facebook Group as well!

It's official. T LOVES Stolen Thunder and wants tons MOAR! XoX

COCO and BISCUITS anyone?....



Yep, kinda excited about this bunch of stills. Coco & Biscuits is the hot new sister range to The Rock Boutique, and both can be found at 839 Camden Stables Market, Caaaaaaaaaaaaaam-den Town, Lahhhhndahhhn NW1 8AH, whilst The Rock Boutique is concessioned in certain Topshop stores and stocked online at Crystal Inc Boutique (handy if like us you very rarely get to visit lovely foggy London town). The Rock Boutique range is bright and bold in colour and embellishments, but Coco & Biscuits has an edgier, worn in to be worn out, ooooooohh - FASHION, look that we personally adore. Each piece is either hand printed, a ltd edition, recycled, or completely one off which just makes us want a piece of C&B even more.

Here are a few of our faves (and yes, I totally get that by a few, I mean 'a lot' - it's hard to choose!), check a wider range out on the Coco & Biscuits Facebook page photo album if you like what you see. Which you will. GO!










Seeeeeeeeeeee? RAWR right? Everytime I preview this post I drift off into a dreamworld of C&B tanks and tees, Charley 5.0 zipper skinnies, worker boots and layering myself happy.......

Follow Coco & Biscuits on Facebook for updates and info, we totally have our eyes peeled for new stockists popping up in our local areas (oo-er!).

Dear Jack, we need them all, quickly please. Kthanxbai.

J - a total fashion whore, you know it ;)
