Chutzpah’s Weekly Barometer

by Katie on March 13, 2011

A light hearted look back over the past week’s good, bad and indifferent including the “don’t even go there’s”.

LOVING

Matt Baker’s ‘How do you sleep at night?’ question to Cameron on The One Show  Says it all, really.  Respect to you Mr Baker.
Flared Jeans  Currently wearing GAP but lusting after J Brand’s Bette available at http://www.trilogystores.co.uk/

Rimmel’s new Peppermint Lycra Pro Colour Memory nail polish  Wearing this fresh minty green shade this last week has meant at least a dozen people asking me about the colour and the brand.  Only £4.59 and available from 20th April.
Misery Bear The cutest, most human bear ever. He drinks too much, too. Follow him on @MiseryBear
Stella McCartney’s new store area, 1st Floor, Harvey Nichols, London  Filled with Stella’s classic and distinctive linear suits, beautiful silk shirts, and mouth watering accessories.  Look out for her new Sunglasses range too.
Sunshine in March But not the freezing temperatures and snow showers North of the Border.  Cut it out chill winds.
Half Price Manicures at Superdrug This Spring, beauty lovers can enjoy a half price manicure for a limited period at Andrea Fulerton Nail Boutique Nail Bars, only in selected Superdrug stores (Westfield, High Street Kensington and Meadowhall, Sheffield).  From £5-£12.50 there’s a manicure choice for everyone.  Promo runs until 12th April.
Fox and Rose  New luxury lingerie website celebrating the duel psyche of women whether ‘the seductive fox’ or ‘understated rose’, this site is packed full of beautiful bra sets, cool bodies, loungewear and playsuits.  Great fashion imagery and a brilliant selection of brands.  http://www.foxandrose.com/
HATING
The fall out from the Dior/John Galliano saga  This whole unsavoury incident shows just how fickle the fashion industry is and how it turns in on itself.  And one of John’s best Galliano collections ever.  How ironic and how sad.
That Winter staples (such as black gloves) cannot be bought come March  I know.  I’m sounding like my mother.  But isn’t it crazy that the stores rid themselves of all useful basic items regardless of consumer need?  The seasonal shift of stock is meant to excite and motivate us but we’re still suffering shivers and minus temperatures.  Somehow sunglasses, cream cotton shorts and colour block shifts aren’t making us feel cosy.
DON’T CARE
For High Street Colour Blocking  Blimey!  Every store is throwing it at the consumer but somehow, they’re not yet biting.  (See above).  Perhaps clashing orange, fuchsia and emerald green just isn’t rocking their world and prolonging retailers’ agony of a long hard sell Summer.

Enough with the politics.

Again ‘anonymous’, I’m as enthralled by politics as I am by fashion. I speak out on politicians and issues I don’t agree with. If you don’t like it, switch off. No loss.

Don’t listen, I like the politics! There is more to talk about online than designers and beauty.

People might not always have the same opinion, but I think we can all cope with 2-3 lines about the world around us!
