Lipsy Make Christmas Shopping Easy
With Christmas just four weeks away, the count-down has officially begun. Shopping is fun for a true fashionista but, sometimes in the rush of it all we pick things that occasionally don't fit the bill. Thanks to Lipsy's new Return To Store policy you can shop til' you drop on the Lipsy website and if you fancy returning that LBD for a sparkly metallic number, then you can simply pop in store instead of sending it back in the post! It's a genius idea to make shopping so, much easier...
You get the in-store personal service with all the benefits of shopping online such as free delivery over £75 plus, you get to save time with the delays in the Christmas post. It's easy, all you have to do is return your item in its original packaging with a despatch note to your nearest store and let the Lipsy girls issue you with a new receipt. See our store locator www.lipsy.co.uk/help/store-locator for Return To Store locations and visit www.lipsy.co.uk/help/ReturnToStore for terms and conditions.
On another seasonal note, we all know our gorg Pix is an absolute winner with her fabulous AList style, pop-star charm and hit records and this month saw Pixie win the Company Mag's High Street Fashion Award for Best Collabo with Lipsy as another accolade to add to her repertoire. Amazing!! The collection is definitely the best yet and with AW11 on trend signatures in each piece, the range is flying of the shelves this Christmas as the ultimate must have girly buy.

From the Middleton sister's right through to the 'Made In Chelsea crew, the ladylike trend is a big hit for city girls this season. With pleated ankle sweeping skirts to floppy felt hats and knee length dresses, you can pull off the lady look with Lipsy and upgrade your style to join the fashion elite for autumn/winter.
For daywear keep it sweet and chic, with pussy bow blouses, peter-pan collars and statement long gloves. Avoid the obvious boho picks by keeping knits fitted as oppose to chunky, and footwear minimal with a pair of killer heels instead of wedges. With accessories, less is more with this style so, team dresses with plain tights, keep jewellery to single pieces and add classic court shoes to complete your outfit.
Up the stakes for cocktail hour with Lipsy and bag a panel and draped beaded dress or an ultra feminine lace number for a subtly sexy approach to the season. The A-List fans including Alexa and Zoe Saldana have rocked luxe red carpet dresses that are pure and simple to nail this trend. So, make like the stars recent high fashion pap snaps and opt for tight, clean powerful silhouettes paired with a fresh face and seductive rouge lips to bring out the lady in you...

Little Mix are Ones to Watch
It was another shock elimination week on X Factor with Craig Colton's unexpected departure. After the judges couldn't reach an agreement, the decision was left to the public vote and Amelia gained a ticket to stay in the competition, whilst it was Bye Bye to the ballad King Craig. However, the Little Mix girls shone and came up trumps with their amazing rendition of En Vogue's movie classic hit 'Don't Let Go.' They completely stole the show...
The girls have broken the curse of the groups and are cruising to the finals with their amazing harmonies and fun, quirky style. Not short of show stopping dresses, Little Mix have all eyes on them week after week with their must have wardrobe picks and this week saw them sporting some fab Lipsy favourites including Pixie's Low Back Lace dress on the red carpet.
With mentor Tulisa's sound advice championing the girls all the way, they are set for stardom. At Lipsy HQ we're routing for them to be the next big girl band alongside the likes of The Saturdays and Girls Aloud. C'mon Little Mix, do it for the girls!!!

The A Factor
