Happy Shopping! The Grazia Team Reveal Their Top 6 'Pay Day Yay' Picks

26 June 2012 by


In this week’s issue of Grazia you’ll find a bumper edition of our monthly Pay Day Yay feature – a jam-packed 10 pages of fabulous goodies that are in store right now and well worth parting with a bit of pay day cash for. We carefully trawl the stores to pinpoint the very items that are worth snapping up for now, but with plenty of mileage for the next season and beyond, too. From heirloom earrings to the ultimate summer-saviour sundresses, you’ll also find plenty of handy hints and tips on how to wear the latest trends. Natch, each Grazia girl had already made her choices before we even went to print, but we’ve manage to wheedle those closely guarded secrets out of the team to bring you a mini edit of what’s what… Be sure to check out the mag for the full lowdown.

"Nothing says two weeks free from the office grind than a palm print bikini. Immediately conjuring images of exotic sunsets, French Connection’s two-piece would look great with denim cut offs – and will get you in that holiday mood before you even pack."

- Katherine Ormerod, Senior Fashion News and Features Editor. Top, £40. Bottoms, £40. Both French Connection

"My go-to summer formula always nods to the '50s breezy vibe of Audrey Hepburn classic, Roman Holiday. This skirt nails it - with a cashmere knit for chilly nights and a tied-up shirt for hot days."

- Hannah Almassi, Deputy Fashion News and Features Editor. £45, Monsoon.

"I love these tropical printed ASOS sandals. They muster up happy memories of lying on a beach with a cocktail in hand. Cheap, chic and pretty comfy, too!"

- Caroline Ferry, Fashion Assistant. £16, ASOS

"I love the clashing colours of these gorgeous retro earclips; I’ll team them with eyeliner flicks and bright lippy for a fast-track int that fab 50s look."

- Charlie Gowans-Eglinton, Fashion Intern. £108, Kenneth Jay Lane at SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.

"This laser lace detail blouse is a great summer, a real wear-with-everything buy - contrasted over a leather mini, thrown on with denim cut-offs or even layered under a summer suit, it will certainly go the distance!"

- Catherine Nieto, Fashion Editor. £85, Comptoir des Cottoniers.

"From festival field to beach bar, the pouch is our new must have bag, and this embellished Accessorize creation is the perfect size to carry all of your summer essentials without ever weighing you down."

- Hannah Sheen, Fashion Intern. £32, Accessorize.
