They tried to make me go to Fred Perry..I said YES YES YES.

Say what you like about Amy Winehouse but I still love her. Yes she's gone off the rails on many an occasion, yes she is foul mouthed and sometimes looks like she needs a good wash and yes she once kept me waiting about 2 hours to come onstage at a gig of hers but it's never made me love her any less. I love her voice, I love her style and lets face it I'm pretty sure we've all had drunken nights where we've fallen about a bit and slurred our words. Granted we weren't on stage to thousands of fans at the time but still...

With Amy's style being in the spotlight pretty much constantly it was only a matter of time before she did a collaboration with a designer. Luckily for us, she chose Fred Perry. A perfect match for her if you ask me. Its a 17 piece collection and is a mixture of fifties inspired high waisted skirts and gingham prints, checkerboard shirts and fifties capri pants. There's also a nice splash of pink - Amy's signature colour really. My favourite piece has to be the bowling shirt. I love the 50s vibe and it looks totally cracking on her and goes perfectly with the tattoos down her arm. To see the full collection click here.

When she hit rock bottom and was in the tabloids everyday due to her drunken antics I always wanted to just give her a big hug, feed her up a bit and force feed her cups of tea and daytime tv but I don't think she would need that anymore. It seems she's totally back on form and even performed on the launch night and was said to be amazing. It's lovely to see her looking so fresh faced and thank god she has finally tamed that beehive! I wanted to wear something gingham today in homage and I know I have a gingham shirt somewhere but I can't bloody find it and I was already late for work at the time so instead I grabbed a little polka dot number and my favourite vintage bag. It's a perfect 'everyday' bag and yes, it is as used as it looks!
