style inspiration: millie mackintosh

I thought it was about time I did another 'style inspiration' post, and in keeping with the 'Made in Chelsea' theme (the last one I posted was on Rosie Fortescue) I thought it would be rude not to dedicate this one to Millie Mackintosh.

Millie has really proved herself in the style stakes, it also helps that she has legs that go on forever (I'm not bitter, not at all!) which means she can pull off pretty much everything she puts on.  I reckon she'd even look good in a bin bag! But this girl knows fashion, she braved leather shorts on the red carpet (a daring move) and she rocked them, and she can wear orange like no-one else.

I'm not ashamed to say I searched high and low for the yellow Zara jacket she was sported wearing in one episode of MIC...I never did get my hands on it.  I also stalked her on Twitter for a while til she revealed where the dusty pink lace dress she wore in one particular episode was from, just for the record, it was from H&M, I found it, I tried it...I didn't look like Millie in it.

And if that isn't enough, you have may have noticed I've featured Zara Taylor jewellery a few times in my 'weekend wishlists', well Millie is regularly seen sporting Zara's designs...a girl after my own heart.  Essentially, what I'm trying to say is that someone should give just me her wardrobe (a few sizes bigger though please), so if anyone can arrange that I'd very much appreciate it.

And here's just a few of my favourite looks of hers:

1. Found here - denim jacket with leather sleeves, I want one please.
2. Found here - I could never pull off orange like this, but how amazing are those wedges?
3. Found here - again, me and leather trousers would never happen but with legs like hers why wouldn't you!
4. Found here - maxi skirt, crop top? errm, yep maybe I did replicate that look here.
5. Found here - the perfect black dress.

I'm thinking of making the 'style inspiration' posts a bit  more regular, thoughts? And if I do, any suggestions of who should be featured?  

all about the girl 

P.S. And does anyone know when Made in Chelsea is going to be back on our screens? I'm missing my weekly fix!

  3. I love her too, and yes, damn her legs, mine could do with a good stretch to get anywhere near that length!! And ha this made me laugh as i searched high and low for the pale pink dress she wore, it was at a tea party or something i think….i also did not look like millie lol. I was also amazed it was just H&M….serious fashion point earnt!!!
