She has gone from pop party princess into style maven and inspiration behind Dior.
We will be showcasing the very best of the Miss Williams range, we’ve got everything you need for spring and summer, from cute vintage skirts and day dresses, to killer wedges and statement bags and accessories. Dates coming soon!
Show me a woman that doesn’t love shoes.
Okay, so not everyone’s into heels, you may be a trainers girl, a stiletto lover, or maybe just favour anything that’s comfy on you feet, but that’s the beauty of shoes – there’s something for everyone!
Here’s our pick of the top 4 trends in footwear for summer. Happy shopping!
Red sliders, £27 Buy it here
These nifty little numbers have stormed the fashion industry, proving a comfortable shoe can also be very, very cool. We suggest opting for a bright shade to give your outfit a splash of colour.
Black block wedges, £25 Buy it here
The wedge is the petite woman’s best friend, with both style and comfort in abundance. Wear yours with a pretty dress or playsuit on a balmy summer’s evening, or with skinnies and a plain tee for some daytime power dressing. Don’t forget your kaftan, too!
Skinny sandals, £27 Buy it here
Why choose one colour when you could have two, three or even four? Wear strappy sandles in bright bold shades with plain colours to get the look.
Snake-print heels, £60 Buy it here
Leopard, snake, or zebra – sizzling summer prints have been all over the catwalk. Don’t be afraid of this daring trend – and make sure you wear it with some attitude! (Think red lips and BIG hair)
Forget swishy skirts and feminine maxis, summer style has taken on a masculine edge with attention-grabbing jumpsuits and rompers.
In an array of styles, prints and colours, from classic black to retro polka dot, this is one essential you NEED in your summer wardrobe.
We took a look at how our favourite petite stars are rocking the look…
1. Daytime cool
2. Come fly with me
Off on your hols? A comfy-yet-stylish jumpsuit is the perfect outfit for traveling. Pint-sized starlet Michelle opts for a ditzy pattern to soften her look, with a navy polka dot print. We’re lusting after that hot pink hold all, too!
3. Black out
Ooosh! Petite Rachel Stevens oozes sophistication in this strapless black number. Teamed with a thin waist belt and simple hair and make-up the singer shows us how this versatile style can be dressed up or down.
4. Keep it simple
Sometimes, nothing beats a classic. Wearing a simple black playsuit in the day with minimal accessories will score you some serious style points.
GET THE LOOK
Get the look yourself with these gorgeous new jumpsuits and rompers from Miss Williams Petities…
Want to contour like Kim Kardashian? Contouring will give you a more defined look, with higher cheekbones and even a smaller nose!
You will need:
How to do it:
Step 1 First, apply your foundation base so you have a clear complexion as a base. Use concealer under the eyes and to cover any blemishes.
Step 2 Load up your contour brush with a matt bronzer. Apply this to the hollows of your cheeks, just under your cheekbone, your jaw line (don’t be afraid to bronze your neck too!) and your temples for a narrower forehead. This will create the shadows to highlight your cheekbones and slim down your face.
Step 3 Apply two lines along your nose on either side from the middle of your eyebrows. This will make your nose look slimmer. Remember to blend!
Step 4 So now you’ve added the shadows, it’s time to highlight the rest! Choose a light highlighter with a touch of shimmer for a dewy complexion. Apply under your eyes, in the centre of your forehead, the middle of your nose and the tops of your cheekbones. Also add a little on your cupid’s bow (the small dint about your mouth, if you didn’t know!) And viola! A perfectly contoured look.
Step 5 Finish with a dusting of shimmer bronzer over your cheeks and you’re ready to go. We like to team ours with smokey eyes or a bright lip for a dramatic night time look!
Here’s one of our customers modelling a favourite festival look from Miss Williams – the printed jumpsuit teamed with a cropped denim jacket. We LOVE the cute trilby, too!

And here at Miss Williams Petites, we’re already planning our festival wardrobe, dreaming of fringed leather, distressed denim and super cute flirty florals. These gorgeous summer essentials will see you right through from sunny days to balmy nights. Just add a slick of bright lippie, your favourite sunnies and you’re festival-ready! (Just-got-out-of-bed hairdo optional…)

The NEW LBD
Forget the little black dress, this little bold number is an essential part of your summer wardrobe. Combining two of the SS14’s hottest trends, a fit and flare shape and bold florals, this hot little number, just £40, is a must-have, for day or night.
WEAR WITH: Some leg-lengthening wedges, an oversized denim jacket and retro sunnies. And voilà! Festival-chic with a feminine twist.
Forget girlish gingham, it’s all about loud and proud checks for a stylish summer look. Teaming this structured shape with a loose fitting shirt creates a cool, casual look.
WEAR WITH: An oversized denim shirt and your favourite trainers for whiling the day away with your favourite bands, or some patent flat-forms to see you through the night.
The playsuit is back in full force this summer! Stripes, hearts, flowers or retro prints, there’s every shade and pattern to choose from. We love this ditzy floral number, a bargain at just £24!

Miss Williams Petites
You have to always be in two minds.Today as I was making these sets I had no idea what i wanted to put together, I just went ahead and created something anyway. My mantra is ‘just do it’! Yep even if you don’t feel like it and in two minds about something… just do something…
So the last quater of 2013 was mega busy for me and my little family. School trips, work trips, university, guitar lessons, language lessons et al!
Now 2014 is here and I want to share something with you. I have been doing a lot of thinking over the past 2 weeks (and a lot of studying too!) about life and being human or better yet being a woman. Most women I know what to love and be loved. We give love to our family, lovers, and friends. We want to receive that love back, right? But some of us often feel that we are not loved by the ones we ‘give’ our love to. Why is that, why do we feel so spent giving love to others.
I’ve clocked it…we need to stop giving out so much of our love to others and keep some for ourselves. Love you and everything about you. So, for 2014 as a woman my ambition this year is not give more love, but to inspire it…. The greatest ambition of women is to inspire LOVE

On Sunday one of my favourite authors died. It was so sad but I’m sure she lived a full life. At the age of 94 she must have experience so much!
Her book the Golden Notebook is such a masterpiece. I think women should read it. You can borrow it from the library free of charge.
Her death made me want to read again at night before bed, rather than facebooking et al. With all the serious reading and researching I do for my studies, picking up a novel at the end of the day seems like madness but it’s such an escape. You enter the world of someone else and you’re instantly relaxed… Helps fall asleep faster too 😉 !
Anyway currently finishing Into Temptation by Penni Vincenzi. It’s the third installation of a The Spoils of time trilogy ( No Angel, Something Dangerous & Into Temptation) you can buy it here.
Bonne weekend tout le monde!
This weekend marks the official end of Summer. The clock goes back 1 hour, but do we gain an hour? Time change… but will we still continue to feel like we don’t have any time to do the everyday things. I feel like I can use 5 more hours in the day!
It also makes the day my son turning 10 years old. How ‘times flies’. I can’t believe it… he’s such a superstar kid. I’m very proud of him.
The clock changes, but time waits for no one…
The days are getting shorter and shorter. Winter is approaching in what it seems as lightening speed! Morning arrives but without the sunshine glow that summer gave it.
This very morning I wanted summer back, but wait, awesome autumn is in play. The trees will bring beautiful yellows, green, orange, browns, reds and purple. The crisp air and most importantly my son’s 10th birthday. And for those who celebrate it, (kids?) Halloween…
Have a happy day and look a the positives xx
Today it’s rainy and a little dark in London. But it’s the beginning of Awesome Autumn. The trees are changing colours and the leaves are falling… It gives me a sense of renewal and change. I’m spending the day with my two favourite people… I feel so lucky
I hope each of you are doing something amazing and fulfilling… I think if you do one thing each day that makes us feel accomplished it’s an achievement. Whether it’s spending ten minutes with your child playing, giving up your seat for someone who needs it. Or not being mad if someone cuts you off whilst driving… C’est la vie!
Have a fab weekend x
So I’ve started my BA (Hons) in Business Studies + French. Not sure what possessed me to do such a thing, but I like to keep learning and I think a brain that is not stretched to it’s limit will be dead. Use it or lose it, eh…
You can always learn something new. I don’t have a degree and it’s something I thought would be handy to have. Since my son is growing up and would need me less and less, I thought what better thing to do than go get a professional qualification in business. Bonus is that it comes with learning French, and I’ve always wanted to take up French again… En Français s’il vous plaît!
When I was in high school it was compulsory to learn French for 3 years. I hated it… the ‘r’ use to be mon plus difficile letter to pronounce. Then there was the writing of the words! C’est fin!
Now I am older I would like to challenge myself. Oui it is going to be a challenge. But I love a challenge and I will but great effort into learning about business and speaking French.
Wish me luck!
In an attempt to perk up this early start, I’ve decided to put this ensemble of clothing together. I love the cotton denim skirt with this yellow sunshine tuxedo blouse. Makes me feel beautifully happy… all I need right now is a date with my beaux this evening 🙂
Anyway, back to work, and I hope everyone had a super week and is looking forward to an amazing weekend. Remember to enjoy your family and friends whenever you have the opportunity.
- Laughing is a great sharing experience that brings you closer to others, even people you don’t know that well.
- A good hearty laugh can leave your muscles relaxed for as long as 45 minutes afterwards.
- How to deal with stress – laughing decreases the presence of stress hormones in your body and at the same time it increases the body’s performance at creating cell generation and building up the antibodies that fight infection.
- Laughing helps the body release endorphins that not only make you feel good, but can even take your mind off pain.
- It boosts confidence, putting other problems and worries into perspective.
I sometimes think to myself, how old am I? We remember the milestones birthdays – 10, 18, 21, 30, 40…How much has changed? As the saying goes “we are only as old as we feel”. Some of us act younger that our years and some behave much older. Which is better? Is it better to stay lost in the bewilderment of never growing older? Life is what you make it… it really is.
I sometimes realise that I am getting older; as now I deal with situations and with people in a more mature manner. I most definitely dress very differently I deal with situations differently. There are signs that society will probably not auspicate getting older. But really, age is just a number and a state of mind too and people alway act and look they way they feel! X
Today I have a meeting with my bank manager. These meetings are always slightly nerving, but they are very very necessary. See, when it comes to money, you must always, always know what you can afford to do. What I do monetarily with my company affects my private life in such a way.
So our meeting is discuss where my business is heading and how to deal with my marketing and sales et al. It all sounds rather boring to be honest. I’d rather be meeting with my wholesalers selecting the next batch of clothing and shoes etc.
Anyway, this MUST be done. I decided to put together a little outfit to help my state of mind. I love this understated black dress, the Bilboa bag and the simple court shoes. The outfit is not outlandish by any means it just says ” Fashion talks…”
Awesome Autumn / Fall is upon us. It is my favourite season. I love so much the brilliant colours that arrive with Autumn. I absolutely love the maroons, yellow, oranges, blue, deep forest greens. The smell of burning wood, the massive amounts of leaves that in the park. The late autumn the acorns fall and my son starts to collect them,. That’s when we know that Wicked Winter is just around the corner!
I pay homage to the my this time of year by wearing these colours.
I’m ready for awesome autumn 🙂
Fashion Muse and Alexa Chung launches her first book, ‘It’, in London yesterday. On September 3rd she tweeted “Anxiety dream waiting to happen: signing copies of my book 5-7pm at Liberty in LDN tomorrow. Keep me company? #tumbleweed”.
It Girls of the past:
Marie Antoinette, 1770s
Clara Bow, 1920s
Edie Sedgwick, 1960s
Jerry Hall, 1970s
Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, 1990s
Alexa Chung, 2010s
Do you think she is an ‘It’ girl? Would you buy the book? I think I will purchase a copy, eventually 🙂
Monday is our opportunity to start the week off positively. Going into Monday with the right attitude will set you up for a week of success. Instead of dreading Mondays imagine them to be fabulous. Heres a few attitudes to adapt to make Mondays brilliant:
- Start changing your thoughts by Sunday night. Get back into ‘work mode’ think positively about Monday. It may be a struggle, but changing our train of thoughts will be a big help.
- Pick an outfit that makes you feel great. It’s comfortable and you are not worried about it.
- Get up early and do some exercise. I find down some sit-ups, pushups, and stretching for about 15 minutes always help to put me in a positive frame of mind. Sometimes I throw in some jumping jacks :-). In addition, leave the house 15 minutes early to avoid the rush.
- Listen to your favourite songs / artists on your journey in to work. I love to listen to Jessie J on Mondays. If I listen to something uplifting and upbeat, it actually feels like Friday, not Monday! So create a Monday playlist to beat the blues
- Hang out with your favourite person at work. Perhaps you can make it so that you meet them for a quick coffee and a chat before heading into the workplace. That always help!
- Eat a healthy breakfast. Yes, that will set you up for he day. I like to have lemon juice with hot water to start ( it’s like a cleanse), Then I move on to eat my breakfast. I love berry smoothie Mondays. It’s filling and has loads of nutrients in it.
So theres are my tips to a making Mondays brilliant. What do you do?
Happy Monday! X
As the days getting shorter and the temperature gets cooler; we know that summer is coming to and end. Make the most of your summer dresses/ styles.
I had a very good summer. Travelling to New York and spending time with my family and friends was the highlight for sure. I hope may of you got a chance to make some memories that you will cherish until next summer!
Adieu to summer!
How do you look stylish at the office?
You can always rely on classics: elegant jackets, pencil skirts, tailored pants. However, you don’t have to stay away from color and prints if they are well balanced. Add unique accessories to give an edge to a conservative look: original jewelry, an oversized handbag, an interesting scarf.
Looking forward is a great thing. When you look forward you remain positive. And when you remain positive you achieve more than you think you can. I know that this has been rehashed before… But I use this way of thinking when I get dress every morning. I look forward to what I will wear today. I don’t dwell on it but I look forward to getting dressed, putting my shoes etc etc..accomplishing my tasks at work and for my business.
So today my encouragement is to look forward. No matter what it is. Big or small; look forward to it and it will be a more enjoyable experience.
Have a great Tuesday!

So… I’m back in London after my american journey. What an experience! I absolutely love New York city. There was family, fun, fashion, food and fascination. I encourage everyone to take gratitude in today and enjoy every minute. Dream the impossible. For when we are ready to launch our dreams into the world, talking about them with our family and friends are great first steps. Since the goals are fully formed, the occasional negative response should not have any effect on its creation.
Well it’s that time of year… School is out and my son and I are off on our summer vacation.
I hope many of you are doing the same and wherever you are heading for holidays make the most of it!
Expecting the best is like placing an order with the universe and awaiting the delivery. But unlike mail order, when we have positive expectations of our goals we act as a beacon, or a magnet, bringing them into our lives more quickly. If we find ourselves getting impatient, we may ask for a sign. The universe is always in communication with us, so when we ask for a sign we attune ourselves to receive the messages that are already being broadcast. Today enjoy your high expectations for a wonderful experience of your present and future.
Don’t complain expect the best of your time spent with family and friends this summer, Live,Live Live!
Everyday of my working life I deal with people who wants things yesterday… But it definitely keeps things interesting. My home in London is, I think, beautifully quirky, reflecting my personal taste. My friends always tell how quirky I dress… I don’t particularly follow current fashion, but I always look fashionable.
My Life. My Style.
Happy Monday X
So it’s the end of another week. The weather has managed to stay pretty warm… it’s definitely summer. The last time we had weather like this in London it was ten years ago. I remember it so clearly and I was pregnant with my son.
It’s definitely distracting and work is the last place you want to be…
With the warm weather I do hope you all are taking time to enjoy your life and the people in it. Take time to share this wonderful weather with friends, eat, drink and be healthy.
Play your favourite summer time music, eat watermelons, berries, etc…
Just enjoy every day and have the must happiest, fabulous of weekends!
How do we know when we are successful at something? So far whenever I feel successful in the things I set out to do, I take the following steps:
1. I Work Hard – nothing comes easy
2. I am Well-Presented – always dress the part
3. I Don’t Use Sexuality – you will be judged
4. I Try To Be Happy – live like it’s your last day. Be humble, make light of tricky situations. Be generous.
5. I Prepare Myself – fail to prepare and prepare to fail
6. I am Gracious – in triumph and defeat
7. I Believe In Myself – develop a thick skin. Don’t knock success, and surround myself with good.
8. I Don’t believe the hype – not everyone will love or hate me.
So for me success is individually marked. We have been successful at something…How do you mark your successes? X
It’s funny as when we see people do something simple or dress without fuss, we adore it! We admire it and think it’s avant-garde…but really it isn’t.
We over-think what we want to wear each day, for we have forgotten how to keep it simple. Try to remember a time when you had over-think what you wanted to put on that day. I can bet your last penny, you overdid it. Wore too much or too little, dawned on more make-up or jewellery than normal. Then you leave the house feeling not so confident and unsure of what you are wearing.
The days when you don’t over think it are the days when you feel most confident.
So don’t over think it and feel like you have wear every single haute couture someone suggests.
Today keep it simple. Always, keep it simple and do YOU. X
Today it’s super hot day in London. It’s been ages since we’ve had weather like this. Everyone is enjoying the sunshine. People seem so happy when the sun’s is out.
So what do you wear when the weather is super hot? Wear what you feel most comfortable in. I find light floaty materials that does not stick to the skin is the best way to go. You stay cool and fell less weighed down by materials.
So get out and enjoy this beautiful weather! Happy Monday X
We choose what we want to wear each day, independently. We choose what we want to eat, and who we want to hang out with today.
I always try to choose independently, wisely and and try not to hurt people with my choices. So today celebrate Independence by choosing something that makes you feel happy and that is good.
Happy 4th July!
Today it’s raining in London. But for me that doesn’t matter much. Today I will answer this dreary weather by wearing something that cheers me up; make my world a little bit bright, sunny and beautiful.
What do you do when you feel that dark rain cloud looming over your life? I say focus on happier things or times. Get out and do something fun… force yourself! And it does work. You find a way to work through the darkness and create positive vibes for yourself.
So today, if you are feeling down, whatever it may be… wear something that lifts your spirits, that make you smile and make your world a little bit more beautiful!
Keep smiling X
July always seem to be the month when people seem the happiest. Is it because the weather has gotten warmer… well that does play a big part in our mental state.
I think it’s because people feel freer. The kids are off school for summer, parents get to be off work for some of that time to spend time with their children. Vacations, holidays, sun, sand, beach. It all starts to happen in July!
So with that said, I would like to wish everyone a very happy JULY! Make the most of the summer wherever you are and whatever you are doing…
Stay happy X
As Friday begins we start to think of our weekend plans with great anticipation. Whatever you get up to make it fun, make it memorable, enjoy it and be happy. Maybe do something you’ve always wanted to do – something new and different.
Live Love Laugh x
Do you remember that dress you had which was your favourite and you wanted to wear it ALL the time?
I remember mine vividly… though it was not white, it was a soft baby yellow. Princess style, full skirt and flowers! I wore them with white girly Mary-Jane shoes. Now all grown up and I don’t think I would wear that same combo, but I still like to feel like a princess.
So remember today everyone” The light you possess is brighter than any star, any sun, any moon. You will find your place in the world beyond the one you are in.”
Be yourself always X
Everyday when you wake up; are you grateful for what you have or do you think of what you don’t have and fret. Sometimes I do, but then I catch myself going down that path and I’m jolted into giving up that train of thought.
I am grateful today because I am healthy, my son is healthy and strong and we live beautifully… We are not wealthy but we are rich. We are rich because we love…we love each other and we always make each other laugh. We have the ability and mind set to follow our dreams! And I am grateful for that.
What will you be grateful for today?
This week is about sticking to goals and accomplishing one thing at a time.
Good luck with all you set out to accomplish this week. X
It seem to me like it was just Friday and I was sharing my Friday picks with everyone. The weekend has come and gone…Monday is here so let’s make it bright! My colour is Orange what’s yours?
Today is a new day, the start of a new week, and with it come new challenges. This week my aim to crate a page on my blog to bring you some high street fashion. I will be attempting to snap (with permission) the London ‘fashionistas’ as the hurry to and from work.
Starting with with Moi!
So when I say I. AM. BUSY… no joke… really busy. The life of living in one of the busiest cities in the world! Work is super hectic and I seem to have deadlines coming out of my ears! The idea of taking a day off to spend time with my baba seems impossible. I must say that I am very much looking forward to Friday evening when I get to chillax with my baba, watch a movie and eat popcorn. Being this busy equals… tired city girl..running in heels! Thank goodness for french soles!
