Fashion: Show Me Your Wardrobe #SMYW

Show Me Your Wardrobe Logo

Do you know the phenomenon when you’ve just discovered something you really like and shortly after that the product is taken off the market? It has happened to my favourite Kinder Happy Hippo chocolate barBranston’s Peri Peri Mayonnaise and the TV show Show Me Your Wardrobe.

SMYW was originally a blog run by stylist now turned photographer, Jackie Dixon. She shared insights into the fashion world of celebrities and the blog existed in various forms, such as a 2 ½ year running photo column in Elle UK and a TV series in late 2012. I’ve discovered the TV show earlier this year when repeats aired on PICK. Jackie and model Zara Martin get invited into the personal wardrobes of celebrities such as Stooshe, Paloma Faith and Whitney Port. They reveal the keys to each celebrity's style, then head to the high street to recreate that look on a budget.

I love the show because it is fun to see the girls hanging out with celebs. It is effortless to watch and Jackie and Zara are very charming. It actually makes you feel like you’ve joined them on their girly shopping tour. Most of the time I recognise the shops and now and again they go for items I have bought myself!

It is also fascinating to see the amazing celebrity wardrobes with unique items and rare treasures. The styling tips are easy to follow and though it is sometimes a bit too girly for my taste, Jackie still keeps it cool. When the girls discover the key styles it feels like a big fashion party and we are invited to join them. The idea to recreate outfits, but not to copy, taken from the affordable high street is superb. I love hitting the high street, looking through the shops and bagging some bargains. So first we get peeks into a celebrity wardrobe and afterwards we go shopping, what’s not to like?

There’s only one season with 10 entertaining episodes. Have a look yourself over at vimeo where you can watch S01E07 with Erin O’Connor and Alexandra Burke. Hope the show comes back one day.

Have fun watching and let me know what you think about the show. Do you like the concept? Which celeb wardrobe would you like to check out?

Till next time
