Owners of style have been trading since 2014 they have some lovely pieces on there website and have just collaborated with the lovely Imogen Thomas. They chose Imogen to model their range because she is a curvy lady and this was taken in to account when looking for a summer collection for their customer base. The bikini bottoms which are ruched were a decision maker as it offers a perfect fit. They stock the range on their website and you can also purchase from Imogen’s social media and website. All the bikinis in the range are at a very reasonable price. Take a look below at my favourite pieces from the collection.
This gorgeous one piece swimsuit is perfect if you want to make a statement, The tangerine colour is the colour to go for if your wanting to show off your tan. I love the gold and black detail and the zip up the front so you can zip it down a little if your wanting to show a bit of cleavage off!
CANCUN BIKINI £39.99
This is another one of my favourites. You can’t go wrong with an animal print bikini. This is mostly the style bikini I tend to buy and if your curvy like me the halter style and tie side bottoms is what flatters your figure the most. The gold accessorise finish it off and make it look a lot more expensive than it actually is, at £39.99 you can’t complain!
HOLLYWOOD BIKINI £39.99
The classic black bikini is a holiday essential. It’s classy and I find a black bikini always slims u down. What I like the most about the Hollywood bikini is the scrunch bum bottoms so you can show an extra bit of cheek there more sexy and feminine than the usual full bottoms.
I spoke to Becky the founder of Owners of style to get a bit of background on how she started….
As a mum of two beautiful children and a wonderful circle of friends. I would often be so excited to have a night off, let my hair down and plan a great night out with the girls, one problem, I have nothing to wear! I would search the shops, often coming home emptied handed as everything I liked came with a heavy price tag. It would seem my friends too had this problem. So here the story of Owners of Style begun in 2014, I decided my mission from was to bring style to all you wonderful ladies, up to date fashion with an inexpensive price tag.
We aim to bring the latest trends, celebrity inspired looks and up to date fashion,we have an array of designs to suit their personal style. Although we are a new business we love to hear from our customers either by taking the time to communicate via our Facebook page or our contact form.
It is important to us that our customers feel confident, look glam and fill their wardrobes guilty free.
I try to bring affordable fashion, at inexpensive price.

Not long ago my friend Gill O’toole opened the doors to The Lounge boutique, after 6 months of building her clientele up online she knew it was the right time. After making her own jewellery for a while and making some contacts with wholesalers she invested in some Loungewear with just £100 and after so much customer demand she realised this is what she wanted to be doing. Gill kept investing what she made each week to buy more and more Loungewear then after 6 months it was the perfect time to open a shop! Take a look below of some of the fabulous stuff Gill has to offer at the Lounge Boutique.
I spoke to Gill to see how it all started.. I Started The Lounge Boutique because I just love casual clothes ... I live in pumps, leggings, T-shirts and track suits . It was the prefect venture for me as I'm passionate about dressing comfortable day to day but still looking good. I love dressing up for a night out but apart from that you will only ever see me in converse, T's and jeans. I started out just little bits on social media then found perfect location in West Derby for a little shop so my customers could come and try on and see what other fab items I have for sale... And for those who don't live local I have my website www.theloungeboutique.co.uk Now it's coming into summer I've branched out into festival bits .. Denim shorts ... Light weight jackets .. Bum bags n caps. I get new stock every couple of weeks that's why I have so many loyal returning customers. I have lots of expecting mums or new mums who buy from me as they love the lounge suits as alternative to leggings, maternity wear & even there pjs. The lounge suits are also perfect for travelling as they are so comfy yet you still look glam they are lounge suits with a twist, Bit of bling, animal prints or gold chains. My customers love them for doing the school run or nipping the hairdressers .. Whatever your doin in your Lounge Boutique outfit you know you'll be comfy but still look good! Here is some of Gills favourite below

Pierre Mantoux Raye Stay-ups
All I can say is wow about these stay-ups. They really do make a statement, especially when worn with a little black dress or skirt.
I wore them with a black leather pleated skirt and black lace shirt tucked in with a large Bow around the neck. It was a nice change wearing tights, but perfect for me at the moment as the weather isn’t quite warm enough yet to be getting my legs out.
They really do elongate your legs because of the bold vertical contrasting nude and black stripes, and they really do stay up. I usually find tights so annoying to put on but these tights slid on so easily, no effort needed at all, maybe something to do with the silk gloves I was sent to put them on with which I would most definitely recommend!
Here is the link below to purchase these beauty’s!
Pierre Mantoux Nabila
These funky fish nets were my second choice of leg wear.
Every girl needs a pair a fishnet tights and they really are a striking trend this season. These tights are designed with an exaggerated play on a fishnet design. Not only can they be worn on their own but why not layer them over a sheer or opaque tight to create another look?
They fit perfectly and stretched and moved with me better than I expected. After wearing them all night not a rip or tear to be seen.
I wore them with a little black dress with long arms and some black lady peep Louboutin heels and big chunky gold necklace, they make you feel very sexy I must say!

After coming across the quirky HERVIA store in Manchester, I decided to look into it a little bit more. Stocking brands like, Carven, Gareth Pugh, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs,Y-3, Comme Des Garcons Play, and one I’ve always been a fan of Jean Paul Gaultier ever since I was younger I had an obsession with their Body shaped perfume bottles, I love there quirkiness and unusualness in their designs, I found out that they are the only official UK stockists of the JPG clothing range. Hervia have a Flagship Y-3 Yohji Yamamoto store in London and they have a new Y-3 store opening in August at Covent Garden in association with Adidas. They have a great easy to use online store, selling some really beautiful, quirky jewellery by Shaune Leane and Tom Binns, and a great gift section if your wanting to buy someone a special present.Read More »

Festival season has finally arrived!!
Glastonbury has been in full swing this weekend, but if you missed a chance to go, there are still some great festivals coming up with some fantastic line ups (see below).Read More »
A few weeks ago I was invited to a wedding in an idyllic setting, situated in a converted barn. However because of the not so Great British weather, I was struggling on what to wear because its so unpredictable. I knew I was going to be there for the whole day and night so I had to wear something I would be comfortable in.
Shoes are a big part in deciding what to wear, because you don’t want to get half way through the day and need to go home because your feet are killing! Now I’m not saying wear kitten heels, as we all know there a big NO NO, but be sensible with your choices.Read More »
A few weeks ago I came across a local jewellery designer whilst browsing one of my friends Instagram posts, and after spending at least half an hour inspecting all the pictures, I couldn’t believe how fabulous this dress jewellery was, probably the nicest I’ve actually seen!!
The more I looked I was amazed at the quality and I liked so many pieces I was spoilt for choice! After much deliberation, I opted for a gold collar with a cuff to match, as well as a silver spiked rock chick set. I contacted Bijou Vintage and ordered my chosen pieces, I was so excited to wear them!Read More »
