It all started with this simply breathtaking image on our big sister blog’s insta account. Eighteen thousand likes, peeps. And counting. Yes, you read that right, EIGHTEEN THOUSAND. How could we not follow it up with a celestial-themed fashion post?!


I was chuffed to bits when I stumbled across a Hush section in my local John Lewis the other day. It’s just not the same buying online is it? IMO Hush do star jumpers better than anyone else on the British High Street. But don’t just take my word for it: check out the reviews on the Hush website. Apparently their Stella jumper is not just pretty as a picture, it’s also true-to-size and washes well.

Laura from The Love Lust List is fully on board with ALL the celestial fashion. But in particular this a-line midi skirt. It’s the perfect transitional item: floaty enough for an Indian summer (here’s hoping), but substantial enough to be worn with thick tights and boots throughout autumn. And if you like that print then you probably need this tee (check out the ruching: gorgeous) and this flared-sleeve midi dress (check out the pleated sleeve: also gorgeous).

Topshop have got serious embroidery game at the mo. That’s one sentence I never pictured myself penning. Just check out the embroidered rocket on the back of this shirt. And I know this is meant to be an A/W fashion post but if that Indian summer DOES hit, or if you’re jetting off to a beach for the October half term, then you probably need this floaty little knot-front number.

One of the loveliest celestial finds I came across was this maternity and nursing shift dress which almost made me want to be pregnant again. It’s simple and chic at the front, and the embroidered star is a pretty, subtle detail to the back.

Can we also talk about the Lily and Lionel range at Asos? Yes it’s a bit spendy but the cut and quality of ALL their pieces look exceptional. And so unusual. I can’t decide which I like the most…their silk shirt, their pleated midi, or their tiered maxi.

Whistles’ slogan apparel never fails to be on point. Take this Etoile tee for example. And as for these earrings…well, they took me right back to age 14. I had some similar and used to wear a moon in one ear and a star in the other. I thought I was the bee’s knees. I’m not sure I can get away with this twenty years later but I would totes wear a matching pair.

And because it’s RMS, I should probably mention these star pots, this star lamp and THIS bargain cushion from H&M. Want.

What do you make of the cosmic/intergalactic trend? Any other starry fashion or home purchases we need to know about?

  1. Loved this post Lisa! Just really liked the recommendations and how pretty is that range from M&S – so nice 🙂
    By the way I have the Hush Star jumper from a previous season and it is lovely so would def recommend that.

    1. So glad you like Nicola. There were so many lovely bits to choose from at M&S. And I need one of those Hush star jumpers in my life x

  2. Oh this is such perfect timing! I’ve suddenly become obsessed with star print (well always loved a star print but recently become reobsessed!).
    I’ve my eye on several hush jumpers and that shirt is gorgeous!

    I recently tried on this dress in H&M which alas was indecently short on me!

    And this one from Debenhams Is high on my list!

    And this blouse

    And Estella Bartlett do the most beautiful star jewellery too.

    Off to add star print to my stripe obsession…

  3. Ooh I do like this trend – it seems to have taken over from the summer ‘pineapple / flamingo’ trend and I love it. Been eyeing up that Hush jumper for weeks…..this might be the final straw to push me over the edge to invest 😉

  4. I am currently coveting this –
    which comes a surprise as I rarely buy anything in Debenhams!!

    On a slightly different note… please uhum “manage” your expectations on the m&s range. I thought the model looks amazing in that dress but when I tried it on in a size 16 I looked like I was off to play “glenda the good witch” in my local panto 😉 xxx

    1. Helen were Debenhams dress twins!! I’m eyeing up the exact same one! I even tried it on last week! Just waiting for a discount day!
