Yes, it’s true that Cruella might just inspire your style this season thanks to her obsession over dalmation print, however TellusFashion aren’t as cruel to try and kill 101 puppies to stay on trend. Thanks to Topshop Unique at last fashion week, we have pretty much fallen in love with the cutsie dalmation print and here are some ways you can wear it this season without going over your highstreet budget…

If you prefer to keep it subtle with animal prints then channel the look onto your fingernails using a matte white colour as your base (Alpine Snow by OPI) and careful dot on your spots using a plain black nail varnish (Black Onyx by OPI) and a fine nail art brush (nail art fine detail brush at essentialnails.com)
The Obi Belt is the biggest belt trend of the season with the likes of Marc Jacobs, Gucci and Hugo Boss going crazy from them this summer; but you don’t need to pay designer prices to the gorgeous look.
The high street is covered with waist-clinching, gorgeous, bold and dramatic belts to really add some eastern glam your outfits this summer, whether you are wearing a tailored blazer, a flowing maxi or a casual tunic.
This gorgeous coin embellished Topshop belt is just £32 and perfect to put with any outfit to add some spice. If you prefer something simpler then why not try this tan ASOS belt for £12.
From metallics to leather there is every style and shape out there so be sure to pick your favourite one and start injecting some eastern style into your wardrobe.

Meet Natascha Stolle, the half German, quarter Italian, quarter Japanese fashion designer from America. Anyone who is as fond of asos.com as we are at Tellusfashion, should note this key designer; Natascha Stolle has designed a popular capsule range which is available online. She is also designing a range for the b Store’s in house label.
Natascha studied English Literature before turning her talents to fashion design. In 1999 she moved to London to study an MA at Central Saint Martins College. She has previously worked for Peter Jensen for ten seasons and Fashion East for two. She also debuted at London Fashion Week with her SS/09 collection.
Her unique style combines an alluring mix of slouchy with Hawaiian influences in an array of textiles and materials. Her tailoring is a result of her own experiments; something which she is clearly naturally talented at.
Don’t miss her Asos collection. Natascha Stolle is certainly one of our favourite high street designers!

My latest fashion obsession takes inspiration from Christopher Kane’s Pre Season Collection for SS11 which I mention in my post “The Rise of The Scottish Fashion Industry”. This obsession is of course Galaxy Print. This particular print has been used for many different garment shapes including leggings, tunics and bodys and I am dying to get my hands on at least one of them…
After some hours spent scouring Ebay, Asos Market Place and every online retailer I could think of, I stumbled across a fantastic Australian brand: Black Milk. Black Milk has by far, the best offering of Galaxy Print garments and embodies the same kind of brand aesthetics as American Apparel. Needless to say its a very cool and playful brand. So if you’re looking for an outfit (cue cheesy line) that’s out of this world then check them out and maybe take a little fashion inspiration from the pictures below. I can’t wait to try out some of these looks and hoping it will look pretty nice with my newly pink, dip dyed do!
