Please excuse the terrible pun, but I couldn’t help myself after all the ooh-ing and aah-ing sounds I made looking at Miss Selfridges’ excellent range of shorts. There’s a little bit of everything from denim hotpants to retro high-waisted shorts in a wide range of colours and prints – animal, polka dots, flowers, stripes. And lots and lots of bows! So whether you want to rock a retro pin-up look or tap into nautical, utility or rock chick trends, I’d recommend you take a look at the following little numbers.

Wowza! is the first word that came to my mind when I came across this dress on ModCloth. This figure-hugging little number is incredibly sexy on top of being absolutely adorable. If you dream to be a retro pin-up, this is definitely the dress for you, but hurry up; the dress has already sold out once.

Since the nautical triangle bikini I posted a week ago is only left in a few sizes, I have found two similar models for you. The gold ring detail on the model on the right will be good for those who like a more sophisticated look. Personally, I prefer the one on the left, as I like a touch of red on nautical bikinis and clothes.

I was browsing ebay when I came across these sexy patent shoes and thought they’d be the perfect follow-up to my nautical post from yesterday—these would work well for the pin-up version of the nautical look as well as make a great addition to your wardrobe. Team with a pair of white or navy shorts and a stripey top and you’re good to go. If possible, find a way to recall the red of the shoes in the rest of your outfit—lipstick, detailing or brooch, for example.
I have to admit I am not very familiar with buying clothes on ebay, I’ve only ever bought books and DVDs from it. I am however quite interested in the idea of buying designer pieces at a cheaper price, but I’m not sure how safe it is—I don’t really want to end up with a cheap copy.
In this case however, the red pumps with bows are from New Look and the maroon platform heels are from ASOS, so I don’t think there is any risk of being disappointed. There are no bids on either of them as I’m writing this and the price starts at £1.50. Good luck. ;)

I absolutely love, love, love a bit of nautical inspiration for the summer. It’s fun, fresh and flirty. Plus, it never goes out of style. Go for blue (preferably navy) and white stripes, Navy-inspired cuts and mix with a touch of red and anchor-shaped jewellery.
A modern take on the theme makes for an easy, fuss-free day-look, or you can channel your inner pin-up with retro-influenced pieces. If you go for the latter, try to stick to copper or gold-coloured accessories rather than silver.
