We have completely fallen for this georgeous Petites Pearl Beaded Dress at Wallis. Romantic, glamorous, it is the perfect dress to wear while falling in love.

This week we noticed at Marks & Spencer this Petite Cotton Rich Geometric Print Top. We love the funky retro print and the restrained colour pallete called camomile, which balances the size of the design perfectly. It has a flattering scoop neck line too, and would go with anything from a smart suit to jeans. Available in sizes 8 to 18 and made from cotton with a little elastane for stretch it only costs £9.50...............Sorry, this item is no longer available.

We love a pair of jeans that is just a little out of the ordinary, so these Sydney Stretch Double Button Jeans from Additions Direct really piqued our interest. They are a nice classic shape yet the waistband makes them that bit unusual. It's wider than usual and has two buttons. Also on the right-hand side, instead of an ordinary little pocket there is a square pocket with a flap. The jeans have a 27" inside leg in the petite fit (with 29", 31" and 33" options as well) and come in sizes 6 to 20. Made from 98% cotton and 2% elastane for stretch they come in a choice of 5 washes - black, dark-vintage, indigo, stonewash or white and better still they are just £18...................Sorry, this item is no longer available

Looking for a smart suit for work? then look no further than this Satin Trim Suit from Marks & Spencer. The warm brown shade is quite a welcome relief from the usual sea of black work attire and the suit. The jacket is well proportioned with neat lapels and a hook fastening at the front. It has 3/4 length sleeves, a satin trim around the waist and the fabric has a little stretch in it too. Underneath is a smart, knee-length sleeveless dress with a matching satin trim. As with all M&S clothing you buy the jacket and dress separately. The jacket is £49.50 and the Dress £39.50 bringing the whole suit in at only £89, and delivery would be free.........Sorry, this item is no longer available.

The daffodils are taking their first cautious peek out after their winter slumber, and so out thoughts turn to our Spring wardrobes. This week, this rather lovely Tile Cutwork Dress from Miss Selfridge caught our eye. The tile design of the dress is remeniscient of the sort of fabulous tile designs found in Morroco. The cut work section around the neckline is beautifully feminine and matches the background of the fabric print, which is also strewn with golden suns. The dress is available in sizes 4 to 14, is 100% cotton and costs just £35.....This item is no longer available

One again, it looks to be a spring full of frills and flounces fashion wise, so we love this feminine Honeycomb Cheesecloth Shirt from BHS.

Also available in a mid-blue shade, it comes in sizes 6 to 20 and is made from 100% cool cotton. It is just the perfect go with anything classic top...........Sorry, this item is no longer available

There is always one colour that stands out each season - one colour that all the designers seem to be drawn to include in their collection. For Spring Summer 2008 everyone from Marc Jacobs and Moschino to YSL and Dior picked on lilac. You can get on-trend right now (even if it is a bit chilly for the chiffon confections shown on the catwalks) with this Lilac V Neck Jumper from Dorothy Perkins. And we've tracked you down another bargain too, as this one is only £7. It's available in sizes 4 to 16 ..............more

One of the hot trends for Spring/Summer 2008 is that of painterly prints; whether it is pale watercolours merging into one another or bold abstract splashes, art and fashion are best friends this season. So we loved this Diamond Print Blouse from M&Co, with it's spring-like blue and green blending together. Chiffon is another big trend for the spring so this blouse ticks all the boxes. It would look great with jeans, with a smart pencil skirt or even with this season's tailored suits in black or white. The tie belt is included and it is available in sizes 8 to 18......more

Browsing through the latest edition of Vogue, I was overwhelmed by the amount of floral clothing to be seen; in particular flowers are strewn across floaty chiffon dresses from Stella McCartney to Gucci and Kenzo. So this Rhianna Chiffon Dress by Karen Gillam would put anyone at the forefront of fashion for spring 2008. The dress has red and blue flowers, just the right size so as not to overpower a petite frame, on a gorgeous teal background. With a flattering bias cut, a square neckline and unusual tulip cut sleeves, this dress could be dressed up for a wedding or dressed down for a summers day. It costs £89 and is available in sizes 6 to 16.....

We've been bargain hunting in the sales this week and we think we've found an absolute cracker. This petite Black Ditsy Dress from Wallis is a classically styled black dress with a subtle swirly pattern which would make it stand out amongst the mass of Little Black Dresses at any event. The dress has a scooped neck, 3/4 length sleeves and a full skirt, perfect for dancing! It's only available in a few sizes in the sale because it is down to a fabulous price - it's only £20, yes £20 ............sorry, this item is no longer available
