SHE’S the girl that has the best wardrobe in the world – I mean, who wouldn’t want a digital outfit-making machine for a closet? And aside from her incestuous romance with the gorgeous Josh (Paul Rudd), Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) also has the enviable fashion sense to match. With ‘the 90s’ being back on trend, The Live Scene shows you that you don’t need to be Clueless to channel your inner Cher.

Harlequin prints are huge this season, as seen on the runways of Balmain and Joe Fresh, so why not invest in this gorgeous skirt by Missguided? Pair it with a Miss Selfridge sheer peplum white shirt and you’ll be ready to rock or fail as in Cher’s case, your driving test!

Think monochrome is too boring? Then red may be your colour of choice! This colour is making its way through the best dressed lists with celebs such as Rihanna, Adele and Jennifer Lawrence all sporting this in-your-face colour at the Awards shows. This £12, yes you read that right, £12 River Island dress will be sure to make you a winner on the red carpet. If tartan is more your thing, grab this skirt from Sohos! Team it with a Topshop black crop top, an Amazon beret and some knee high socks from Motel Rocks!

And finally, finish off your Cher style steal with a pink feather pen. Now all you need is the cute nerdy boy…

IT’S that time of year again ladies! Here are The Live Scene’s top three party dresses for your New Year’s Eve night out!

nye21. Embellished Bodycon Dress, £89, Miss Selfridge – It’s the final day of Autumn/Winter 2012, so why not go out with a bang in this elegant embellished dress from Miss Selfridge? Embellishment is popular this season with Balmain’s collarless jackets, Jenny Packham’s shoulder encrusted dresses and Mark Fast’s intricately jewelled cover-ups turning heads at Fashion Week. Wear this dress with these nude heels from Bank to elongate those legs of yours, and finish your outfit off with some Barry M lipstick in Chestnut Red.

2. Light Purple V Neck Peplum Dress, £25, River Island – Designers loved the two P’s (that’s Peplums and Purples) this Autumn/Winter, with Prada, Gucci and Christopher Kane waving the purple flag, whilst Nicole Farhi, Mary Katrantzou and Burberry Prorsum took the peplum trend one step further with their exaggerated hip-line pieces. This River Island dress seems to emulate both of these trends – so for only £25 what more could you ask for?

3. Foiled Lace Skater Dress by Dress Up Topshop, £50, Topshop – Skater silhouettes were huge this season with Victoria Beckham, Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen including this cut in their A/W collections. Complete this look with these black Topshop platforms and some sexy smokey eyes, courtesy of Models Own.

I shall be wearing either a cobalt blue cut-out dress from Desire, or a Topshop smart cream blouse with Republic’s Miso PU leggings! Oh and not forgetting my killer black Primark heels!

What outfit will you be wearing this New Year’s Eve?

So you’ve drank the last of the mulled wine, opened up all your presents, and you’re stuffed with Christmas dinner. But wait, it’s that time ladies… it’s the Boxing Day sale!

You may think sale items are the High Street’s way of saying ‘this isn’t on trend anymore’, and whilst these items may have been popular this Autumn/Winter, they are also going to be HUGE next season, and here’s why!

1. Brown Leopard Print Shorts £10, Black Lashes of London Black Sequin Dress £25 & Cream Pearl Collar Jacket £30.

Designers are going animal print crazy next Spring/Summer with Erdem’s tribute to snake skin and Issa taking us through jungle paradise. So why not get ahead of the fashion pack and bag yourself these luscious leopard print shorts – hey they’re only a tenner!

 If you’re looking for that perfect NYE party dress, than look no further than this £25 scuba sequin dress! Embellishment is bigger and better than ever next season – think Viktor & Rolf, Balmain and Giles. Wear your new sequin number with MAC lipstick in ‘Cockney’ and these perfect peep-toe shoe boots from River Island, and you’ll enter 2013 in style!

It may be minimalistic, but cream and white colours were everywhere during S/S Fashion Week! From Jil Sander’s exaggerated hipline dresses to Missoni’s sleeveless shift dresses – they showed us that white can never be boring! If white is too much for you, then buy this cream pearl collar jacket – at £30 it may be expensive, but you can wear it with anything! Well, apart from white…

1.Moto Sparkle Yoko Crop Jacket £22, Illusion Pencil Dress £20 & Trace Lace Up Trainers £12.

Topshop has surprisingly some cheap sale items this Boxing Day, and what better way to nail two trends in one, than putting this denim crop jacket into your virtual shopping basket? Cropped jackets was a favourite trend with Chanel and Balenciaga, and denim was all the rage at See by Chloe and 3.1 Phillip Lim. Just wear it with a cute pink lace dress for a cool daytime look.

What’s black and white? Moschino’s sixties coats? Marc Jacob’s referee stripes? Or what about Jonathan Saunders leather chevron dresses? All of these top designers showed us that next season you can mix up the monochrome trend, and this £20 Topshop dress seems to do just that! The black side panels create a slim silhouette, whilst the dress itself is a Bodycon number, so your curves will stick out in just the right places. Just pair it with a vibrant lippy and you’ve got yourself the perfect New Year’s Eve outfit!

Whoever thought that trainers weren’t fashionable, bow down now. Ashish and Moschino Cheap and Chic went against the fash pack and stormed the runways with their models in Reebok Classics and Nike Air Max trainers! So what are you waiting for? Get ahead of the average fashionista and click ‘Buy’ on these Topshop lace up trainers now!

1. Flower Bomber Jacket £10, Leopard Print Mesh Crop Vest £2 & Neon Pink Jumper £12.

Bomber jackets are going to be huge next Spring/Summer with the likes of Stella McCartney and Jonathan Saunders including this look into their S/S collections. Make like Loewe and wear a floral bomber with a cute bralet and a simple skirt, or if you’re the grungy type, pair it with these River Island leather jeggings, printed H&M tee and black leather buckle boots from Office.

Bra tops may have been huge last season, but they are still heating up next Spring/Summer! Take inspiration from Jason Wu and Versace! This £2 – yes £2 – leopard print mesh vest hits all the right trend buttons! Just remember to keep the outfit classy ladies!

Everyone loves a bit of neon right? Just look at Simone Rocha, Matthew Williamson and Louis Vuitton. Make like these designers and wave your neon flag with this vibrant pink jumper! Team it with American Apparel’s famous disco pants in Black and you’ll be oozing the classic casual look!

Are you heading out this Boxing Day to grab yourself a bargain? Or are you going online and shop in front of the festive fire?

With Christmas only a day away, here are my six favourite must-have items! Hint hint!

1. Petites Biker Trench, £85, Miss Selfridge – I have been looking for a nice coat for ages, and this Miss Selfridge biker trench is perfect to keep me going this Winter! I know, I know, it doesn’t exactly scream out ‘WINTER COAT’, but for £85 it’s not only on trend – the leather touch reminds me of DKNY – but I can also layer it up with my gorgeous green tartan scarf too!

2. Loverdose by Diesel, £28.50 for 30ml, The Perfume Shop – Loverdose is my favourite perfume in the entire world, so how could I not add this into my Christmas wishlist? It’s perfectly packaged and I love its floral scent! One of my best friends bought me this for my 21st birthday, but you can never have too much perfume, right?

3. White Friendship Bracelet By Marc By Marc Jacobs, £40, Harvey Nichols – I’m not usually into my designer gear (I’m more of a high street/vintage girl), but I love this Marc by Marc Jacobs friendship bracelet! It’s so simple but yet sophisticated, and it will go with anything and everything!

4. Alexander Wang Knockoff Bag, £37.99, eBay – Remember last year’s Christmas wishlist, where I had my eyes set on a gorgeous leather multi-strap Alexander Wag tote? Well here is the knock-off version! It may not be the real thing, but I would love to get my hands on it!

5. Project #3 Black Sequin Body, £39, Miss Selfridge – You may have noticed that Miss Selfridge is one of my favourite shops, and as I was having my daily peruse of their website, my eyes were instantly drawn to this gorgeous sequin body! At £39 it may be pricey, but add these Missguided leather shorts and some peep-toe shoe boots from River Island, and you’ll be Belle of the New Year’s Eve Ball!

6. Black Embellished Shorts, £45, River Island – And finally, I have been after some high-waisted embellished shorts for a while now, and these are the PERFECT pair for me! Embellishment is big this season with the likes of Balmain, Jenny Packham and Mark Fast sending their models down the runway with these party-inspired pieces. Just add a plain white H&M vest, and these killer Topshop heels to finish the outfit off.

1. Geo Devore Bra Top, £20, Miss Selfridge – Who knew that wearing what could be deemed as ‘lingerie’ out in public would be socially acceptable in 2012?  Well according to Viktor & Rolf, Prada and Dolce & Gabbana, the elusive ‘bra top’ is just that. Bra tops are perfect for your summer holiday, and with this gorgeous Geo velvet number, you’ll in no doubt be top of the trend class! What’s more, velvet is HUGE for Autumn/Winter 2012 – take inspiration from Peter Pilotto and Unique.

2. Black suede studded flatforms, £11.99 without postage, eBay – Flatforms are massive in the bloggerverse – just look at top fashion blogger Lily Melrose for instance! And with Topshop Unique, Meadham Kirchhoff and Christopher Kane featuring these popular shoes in their Spring/Summer 2012 collections, there is no doubt the ‘the flatform’ is this Summer’s shoe of choice! These black suede studded shoes are perfect for those of you who hate high heels! Plus, they go with EVERYTHING!

3. Floral Print Maxi Dress, £59, Topshop –  A Wednesday Wishlist is never complete with some sort of floral garment included! And this week’s certainly doesn’t disappoint!

4. Tanisa Leather Hotpants, £22.99, Missguided – Don’t fret, the dominatrix look is not back in fashion just yet, but it’s safe to say that leather was everywhere during Fashion Week – just look at online etailer Missguided’s take on this sultry fabric! Team these amazing leather hotpants with a crisp white collar-tipped Zara shirt, Topshop grey ankle socks and Republic’s gold studded and buckle boots, for an Alexa Chung style steal.

This week’s Wednesday Wishlist is a Miss Selfridge ‘must-have’ special!

From L-R: 1. Silver Lame Dipback Tee, 2. Black Floral Denim Hotpants, 3. Buddha Ring, 4.Petites Ombre Shirt, 5. Rhinestone Chain Loop & 6. Stud Front Dipback Tee.

1. Silver Lame Dipback Tee, £25 – Metallics were a key Autumn/Winter 2011 trend, but they are still clinging on for ‘trend-glory’ this season with Herve Leger, Givenchy and Sportsmax showcasing these futuristic colours in their S/S 2012 collections. I would pair this top with my Republic black leggings and my silver studded shoes.

2. Black Floral Denim Hotpants, £28 – Florals are always a trend which always crops up at this time of year, with designers such as Matthew Williamson, Mary Katrantzou and dynamic duo Proenza Schouler turning heads with their flower power pieces at their respective fashion weeks.  These shorts would look perfect with a simple white Topshop tee and Office’s pink underground creepers. For the current ‘clash’ look, which is popular with celebrities such as Diane Kruger and Olivia Palermo, team your florals with stripes or leopard print. For this trend, anything goes!

3. Buddha Ring, £6.50 – I was drawn to this Buddha ring because believe it or not, this religion is part of my heritage (I’m half Thai). I used to own quite a few religious Thai trinkets and necklaces, but over the years I have somehow lost them! This Buddha ring reminds me of ‘the other part of my life’, and it’s also gold, which is my favourite jewellery colour – so I HAD to include it in my Wednesday Wishlist! There were only a few left in stock the last time I checked so if you want to snap this up, then you have gotta be quick!

4. Petites Ombre Shirt, £32 – Ombre is BACK, and it is another trend which is set to rock in the Spring/Summer 2012 fashion stakes, with top fashion bloggers ‘ombre-ing’ their hair such as Lily Melrose and Olivia Purvis, to Charlotte Ronson and Louis Vuitton, who have sent dip-dyed pieces down the runway.  This would look great with bloggers favourite American Apparel disco pants and black high top flatforms.

5. Rhinestone Chain Loop, £25 – Collar necklaces were big on the catwalks of Sass & Bide and Oscar De Le Renta. Despite this necklace being HUGE and probably weighing a tonne, it’s still amazing in my eyes!  It would look great under the collar of a crisp white shirt.

6. Stud Front Dipback Tee, £35 – I am in love with studded clothing and accessories at the moment! Let’s just say it’s my ‘inner-Balmain’ which is luring me to this trend. This tee can be dressed up for the day time – with some Boohoo black wet look leggings and Chelsea boots, or it can be dressed up to the nines with some luscious leather shorts from Missguided and River Island black and white heels, for a night out with the girls!

What are your thoughts on Miss Selfridge? Are there any items which take your fancy?

Today’s Wednesday Wishlist is all about fabulous online retailer, Missguided!

Missguided has been on my radar for some time now, but it wasn’t until earlier this month that I actually took the time to browse the online retailer, and let me tell you – I instantly fell in love with some of their amazing clothes!

From L-R: 1. Enrita Leather Trim Lace Blouse, 2. Ingrid Tassel Ribbed Bodycon Skirt, 3. Sunisa Crocodile Skin Envelope Tote Bag, 4. Velda Mirrored Teashade Sunglasses, 5. USA Frayed Denim Shorts & 6. Studded Collar Skater Dress.

1. Enrita Leather Trim Lace Blouse, £22.99 – Lace is big this season, with designers such as Miu Miu’s stunning red and gold dress, Luisa Beccaria’s blue midi and Valentino’s crisp white gowns turning heads at fashion week. So when I saw this edgy blouse on the Missguided website, I had to include it in my Wednesday Wishlist! As you can see, I have ‘tucked’ it in the tassel Bodycon skirt below; this outfit would be perfect for a night out with the girls, or for a special occasion. If I wanted a more casual look, I could also team this blouse with these Topshop dip-dye denim shorts and black wedge sandals from River Island.

2. Ingrid Tassel Ribbed Bodycon Skirt, £22.99 – The ‘Great Gatsby’ look took the catwalks of Marchesa, Ralph Lauren and Etro by storm. So I was eagerly anticipating what the high street were going to come up with in terms of designing their own versions of this 20s trend – and it’s safe to say that Missguided definitely did not disappoint with this sultry Bodycon tassel skirt! Dip hem skirts seem to be all the ‘rage’ at the moment, so it’s refreshing to have a different type of skirt available for those who want to embrace their ‘inner Gatsby girl’. At £22.99 this skirt is practically a steal, so if you fancy channelling the great 1920s, grab yours now!

3. Sunisa Crocodile Skin Envelope Tote Bag, £28.99 – As with previous wishlists, pastel colours are a trend which I have been coveting ever since they graced the runway of House of Holland, Jaeger and J W Anderson. This pastel pink crocodile skin envelope bag is perfect for someone like me, who prefers to add minimal pastel accessories to her outfits, rather than look like an ice cream sorbet (hey it’s a good look, but it’s not for me!)  This bag will also finish off the outfit in my wishlist nicely!

n …4. Velda Mirrored Teashade Sunglasses, £4.99 – These sunglasses are so cute and funky! They remind me of the late John Lennon, and what better way to channel this iconic musician than by bagging these mirrored Teashade sunnies?!  Now all we need is the summer sun…

5. USA Frayed Denim Shorts, £24.99 – The ‘Americana’ trend is a big hit this Spring/Summer with high street stores such as Republic, Topshop and Miss Selfridge including this famous flag in their collections.  These shorts are perfect for festival season, and will look great on the beach! Just take inspiration from Marina Diamandis, from Marina and The Diamonds, who rocks her American flag shorts!

6. Studded Collar Skater Dress, £27.99 – And finally, this studded collar skater dress is perfect for both the daytime and a night out on the town! This dress reminds me of Balmain, who is one of my favourite designers – I love their S/S 12 collection! So this is my high street take on the Parisian fashion house.  I would toughen this look up even more by wearing this grey River Island PU jacket and Missguided’s ‘killer’ platforms!

There’s my wishlist! Do you like Missguided? What are your favourite items at the moment?
