Chutzpah’s Weekly Barometer

by Katie on March 27, 2011

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


MONCRIEF LONDON WEEKEND BAGS Super-super-spendy stealth luxe luggage that will induce bag envy in even the coolest of customers. Available at Wolf and Badger

THE LADY WARNING The signpost to women clobbering each other on “Corrie’s'”cobbles. “Listen Lady….”

“WITH-IT” We’re taking our Nan’s approach to edgy fashion. Patronising? Nous?

ELEY KISHIMOTO AND TESCO’S CLIMATE WEEK T-SHIRT As seen on Gemma Arterton, Lily Cole, and Jade Parfitt. Organic, ethically produced, and only £10. A small price to pay to show that you care.

NEON EYESHADOWS A slick of bright turquoise, purple, orange, purple or green is the perfect way to update your look for S/S ’11 and a quick stab at colour blocking. Why not wear with a contasting neon shade shirt/skirt? Illamasqua knows best. Visit the store in Beak Street, London W1 or visit the website:

MATALAN’S HIGH SUMMER COLLECTION I know! Us! But we do. It’s chiffony, airy fairy florals and bright coloured jumpsuits, kaftans, harem pants and long tierd skirts are putting us right in the mood for a ‘Holidayyyy’. *starts singing Madonna*

MOR BELLADONNA PERFUME OIL  Sweet, summery and a slick roll on that smells of beach holidays.  Macadamia Oil, Almond Oil and Vitamin E leaves skin regenerated and soft to touch. Available from House of Fraser.

PEACOCKS Now we love a high street cheat as much as the next sassy fashion blogger but Peacocks’ brazenly blatant approach to catwalk copies gets the thumbs down from us. THEY SAY “Great design at an affordable price”. WE SAY “It’s not your design so wind your neck in LADY”.

THE NEW MIDI-LENGTH SKIRTS Suspiciously like those Sloaney numbers favoured by Lady Di. Just wrong.

MARK OATEN AS CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF THE INTERNATIONAL FUR TRADE FEDERATION Real fur was all over London’s Autumn/Winter catwalks. Will Oaten’s prior…ahem, “indiscretions” get in the way of serious debate regarding this emotive issue?

KATE MIDDLETON’S WEDDING DRESS HYSTERIA The most over-hyped garment in the history of the world. Ever.

THE OLYMPIC COUNTDOWN CLOCK That breaks down within a day of use. We’re so bodging this up aren’t we? Tres embarrassing globally.

BUYERS’ TOP TEN PICKS Middle-of-the-road and commercial. Find your own style.

LOLEATTA HOLLOWAY R.I.P A mainstay of Team Chutzpah’s Disco Fridays and (lazy journos take note) so much more than that bloody Black Box record. This big lady with a BIG voice will be sorely missed. We love our Salsoul.

ESSEX FASHION WEEK A contradiction in terms. Really.
