Episode 5 began at Daniel Galvin Junior’s salon where our favourite fashionistas were receiving a spot of pampering. How many milliseconds did it take you to figure out who these pins belonged to?
Black cage heels are great attention-grabbers! Most commonly they’re seen after-dark to accompany a sexy party dress but they’re just as suitable during the day with a casual outfit. If heels aren’t your thing you can get exactly the same effect with a pair of flats this summer.
If we’ve learnt one thing about Millie Mackintosh this season, it’s that simple definitely works for her. If she’s your style inspiration and you’re looking to invest in one thing for your spring/summer wardrobe, opt for a blazer. It’s the perfect piece to throw on no matter what the occasion and unlike most things we’re going to buy this season, it works all year round.
Rosie’s outfit was giving off some seriously cool vibes too. Thanks to her achingly-cool style blog, At Fashion Forte, fashion-hungry fans can stalk her style until they’re blue in the face! This photo was taken from her blog.
Her entire outfit came in at an earth-shattering, salary-munching, stomach-dropping three and a half thousand pounds! Her incredible leather jacket is from IRO at Stanwells and retails at a whopping £825. It’s pretty much sold out everywhere but you can buy it at a reduced price of £512 here. She’s carrying a Celine handbag and wearing boots from Tods. But ladies don’t despair! The good news is that her skirt is from Zara at a mere drop-in-the-ocean price of £29.99. (Hurrah!)
This first scene was cut back and forth from Millie and Rosie to Spencer and Jamie in a sort of posh, bitchy version of Greece’s Summer Nights. Instead of singing about a sexy summer romance they played out a he said/she said medley concerning Louise and her choice to sleep with Spencer post break-up.
Soon after, we joined The Blonde Trio for an expensive shopping trip (is there any other kind in Chelsea?) Phoebe was glistening in a gold beaded khaki trench coat from Burberry. But all is not lost; there are some similar styles on the high-street!
Life turned a little brighter after that as we headed to Blacklock Flower School for a bit of flower arranging with Mark and Victoria. This…in case you didn’t know…is what the experts refer to as a Morning Flower.
A morning flower can be defined in two ways. It’s a flower that one would be privileged to wake up to every morning and its most effective placement within the household is next to the fruit salad on the breakfast table. No no, don’t thank me for the insight…thank Mark Francis.
On another light and fluffy note, Victoria’s hair always looks so lovely.
Night fell and the Verbier gang met up at Proudlock, Jamie and Francis’ house to eat cheese fondue and generally flirt outrageously with each other. Phoebe never fails to disappoint in the style department, but what more would we expect from a fashion assistant at Tatler?
Over to Sunbeam Studios where the gorgeous Ashley was being snapped for what looked like a summer ad campaign. (Does anybody else think she looks freakishly like Caggie?) As she strutted over to the equally gorgeous Olivia in that darling daisy bikini, the fashion gods unknowingly threw us a bargain. For a mere £27.98 you too can rock this Kelly Brook for New Look number on your hols this summer.
After some awkward ping pong, Louise and Binky headed out for lunch to discuss Louise’s emotional state. If you love Louise’s dipped dyed hair as much as I do, you could try out L’Oreal’s Wild Ombre dye from boots for £6. Binks was rocking a new nail colour this week, check out Barry M for some similar springtime hues.
As the episode came to an end we were whisked into an evening of burlesque at Proud Cabaret City. Nipple tassels and feathers became the topics of conversation and the male members of the cast turned into kids in a candy shop. Tatler’s fashion assistant scored another 10 in the style stakes with her sleeveless black and white striped blouse.
Over at Searcy’s Champagne Bar, Spennie claimed that he’s become a darker person over time while Lucy was rocking our favourite curb chain necklace again. Take a look at last week’s post for a list of high-street alternatives that’ll give you a slice of Lucy’s wardrobe.
The pair made for a rather terrifying episode finale. Did anyone else feel as though the two of them were meeting to discuss evil plans to take over the world? It was almost as bad as Jamie’s Peter Pan tattoo. Almost.
