Instant Goddess OD’s on the red carpet…

Back-to-back trash TV and more red carpet detoxing…finally we may have OD’ed! And so it has been a very quiet few weeks at Instant Goddess HQ but the fashion radar is still working (just about). So what landed on the screen this week?

Top of the Instant Goddess fash chart this week has to be this wonderful grey embellished jacket from Monsoon – just perfect for this time for year.

Shoe of the Week

Great with denim, the kitten heeled studded shoes above from Zara, could give you just the fashion pick-me-up you’re looking for in the day. Low enough to be comfortable for day wear and who knows you might even be able to break into a trot about town. They also come in nude and at a price like $399 you could even buy a pair in each colour if you can’t make up your mind.

Did you know? That the Zara app is well worth downloading as you can check in-store availability for your size and which store has availability nearest to you. So no more wasted trips to Zara scouring the shelves for that much wanted item.

Oooh and just one more word from Zara…the necklaces and scarves are definitely worthy of note at the moment.

Lady in Red

Yes, Yes… I know we covered red dresses last time in homage to Valentine’s and CNY but this one got through the net or maybe Dotty P’s were late to the party? Anyway, if you’re still in the market for a very affordable red dress then look no further than good ole Dorothy Perkins from the UK. And if you play your cards right you could even bag yourself a discount…join their mailing list and they almost have weekly discount code offers.

Midweek Meal Inspiration

And, yes, back to that Red Carpet Detox, after falling off it over CNY, we got right back on it…but Instant Goddess is getting to the point where she’s even beginning to BORE herself now (and no-one likes a diet bore particularly when it’s yourself) so we may be going back to black (so slimming you know). This week we particularly enjoyed the Aubergine stuffed with cherry tomatoes and quinoa.
