{ Luella }

I read on Vogue last week that Luella has 'ceased trading' as the label's current backer has pulled out and they don't have another lined up. It's disconcerting that that yet another strong, inspiring designer has fallen under the pressure of the current economy. I really adored Luella's SS '10 collection and, personally, hope someone will come to the rescue and it won't be the last we see of her.

On the bright side, everything is currently up to 50% off on luella.com. Sadly, even at half price I can't afford to splash out on a piece at the moment, so have settled with this inspired Topshop version of the blouse.

Regarding the Bronx 'Shani' wedges: how do you get the laces to stay done up? Mine come undone almost straight away because of the stiff ties.

Great post, I too am very sad, recently posted about my Luella inspired bits as well. Topshop also has a really similar polka-dotted corset similar to her latest collection.

soon as I saw the photos of your post, I immediately thought that the shirt was from LUELLA, then I read it wasn't ... it's hard to grasp the difference, excellent choice then!

i'd look for a new pair of laces in a similar colour; stiff leather laces are never gonna stay tied for long!

PS, adore that Our Love To Admire is in your 'listening to', that would be my second favourite ever album (after Turn On The Bright Lights; oh god I love Interpol. New album next year! Wheeee!)

I love these shoes.. but its been too hot to wear them. Simple I know but I double knot them. Cos the laces are so stiff do you find that they stick out alittle?

Lovely outfit. That top is super cute. So sad to hear what is happening with Luella. I hope it's not an indication of things to come/other labels 'ceasing trading' as well.

I have the same problem with a couple of my shoes. A tight double knot usually solves it. x

That's sad to hear :( Love your outfit- esp that bag!

those laces must be dead annoying but what gorgeous shoes! a double knot is normally the best solution but im not sure how well that will work with those shoes but its definitely worth a try x

I just started following your blog, and I'm already looking forward to more posts from you. :)

I am also sad about Luella's situation. I don't have anything by her, but I've always liked her runway shows. I hope someone steps up and saves her.

jenn - I LOVE Interpol, and your taste in music ;)

Anonymous - Ok I tried double lacing them and they stayed tied up for longer. And yep, the laces stick out like little bunny ears on my feet :p

Amanda - It was nice meeting you too. I got a few good things but really wasn't quick enough. So jealous of the amazing things your friend got and I hope you grabbed some great things too x Sushi

Hannah @ LONDON--ROSE ♥ - Thanks very much! Sure, I'd love to. Let me know when you've added me to your blogroll x Sushi

I have a question about those wedges, I bought them in black about a week ago to find out one shoe is made of smooth leather and the other one is made of grainy leather, are they supposed to be that way? It's cute and not noticable but it's still kinda disturbing.
Anyway, lovely outfit and blouse!

Olivia: May I ask where on earth you found these shoes?? I can not find them at all...
If possible, please write to hliketoshop@gmail.com
