Looks of the week





1. LC- this outfit is so simple, but what makes it great is those studded Christian Louboutin boots, oh how I love them. LC is def developing a great sense of style, and this look is far from her 'pretty dress look'.
2. Posh- I wish I looked this great at the airport. How she could get comfortable in those leather leggings I will not know, but hey, if shes comfortable thens it's a thumbs up from me. I just love how this look would look quite normal with jeans, but with those leather trousers, shes transforms it onto a very fashion forward look.
3. Vanessa- I just love how mini dresses with long sleeves look. Sexy but without looking too over exposed. Love it. I just need to find the perfect one now.
4. Posh again- Finally, what can I say. An amazing lace dress and those CL for Rodarte, to die for! I love it when Posh steps away from her pencils skirts and plain dresses. This def puts her into the style icon catergory.

My Ultimate!


Where I live, there are few men with style, therefore, a girl has to drool over magazine shoots like the above. Some may call him a boy, but hes all man in this picture, one trendy man. I love this look on Zac Efron, the styling is impeccable from the hair to the amazing silver shades. Take note girls, lets get our men dressing like so.

Caged up!


Once again, another shoe post! Nothing to say about them really, apart from the fact that I want them and for a bargain £35, theres no real reason why I souldn't buy them. I am wondering when I will get over strappy shoes though, but you can't really have enough...can you?

Topshop over Primark!


I posted earlier about the Gucci knock off's in Primark, but still no luck.....BUT....thanks to good old Topshop I have just purchased these knock off boots! Can't wait to get them through the post. Sadly, they have sold out online, but for those who can't resist do keep checking, they may re-stock!

LOVE BEYOND BELIEF...





On rare occasions I will come across a designer collection that I can't fault, and this time round it's Balmain s/s 09'. From short mini bandage dress in amazing jewel colour to bleached jeans with embellished jackets, I am totally in love with this collection. And when you think the collection can't get any better, you spot the shoes.....OH THE SHOES! They are a cross between the studded Manolo's that Ashley Olsen was seen sporting and Christian Louboutin for Rodarte a/w 08 collection. Straps and studs= the perfect shoes....Now I totally regret selling my studded 'hooker/Burberry knock-offs' on ebay last week :(.
Thoughts on this collection?
Love, love or love?
Update: I think the shoes don't have studs on them but crystals....knew I sold those shoes for a reason....(she sighs with relief).

GUCCI ET AL AT PRIMARK?!?!


I was horrified and excited when the sis text me today saying that she had spotted some Gucci knock off's on her recent trip to Primark, for a mere £15!!! Having been looking for high street versions of this seasons studded sandals that were all over the catwalk, I was utterly in shock. Kurt Geiger had a similar pair, but they retailed for £100, still too pricey from my liking, so I was delighted to find out Primark was seeling theres for small change. So there I went, on my way to my local Primark, excited to think I would have these babies in my hands in less than 10 mins....however, deep down, I was sceptical. Having visited Primark the previous day and not seen anything remotely close, I wondered whether or not my local had stocked them yet....OR they had SOLD OUT!


Sadly, it was the latter :(


I now have to visit the store everyday to check for a redelivery, annoying I know but well worth it. I'll inform you on my progress.

Get the Look: 3.1 Phillip Lim s/s 2009




It seems everyone has a fetish for zippers these days! 3.1 Phillip Lim's collection had exposed zippers all over dresses and tops and it seems Topshop has jumped on the bandwagon very early, stocking this top which had a frilly peplum with zip detailing. Get your's before it goes!

Wishlist!



1. One Shoulder Top- Maison Martin Margiela
2. Leather jacket- Alexander McQueen
3. Sandals- Alejandro Ingelmo
4. Chain Necklace- YSL

Look of the Day: Nicole Richie


Nicole seems to crop up alot on my Look of the Days (not that I can find many inspiring outfits daily, so more like Look of the Week). Here she is at the Marc Jacobs show at New York Fashion Week, looking oh so chic in a simple white vest and black wet look wrap skirt and of course, no outfit is an outfit without strappy shoes! I've come to the decision that the more simple an outfit, the more effective it looks. When I was a wee young lass I used to pile on every accessory I could get my hands on to try and make my outfit look 'cool' but pictures like this show you don't need much to look fashionable, so remember guys....KEEP IT SIMPLE!
Note to self: need to find a headband like that!

New buys...




All items from Topshop.
Why is it that black jeans all fade into this dirty greyish colour....or maybe you don't have this problem? I think I do cos' I only buy cheap Topshop jeans, but OMG it annoys me soooo much! Anyhows, I still don't learn as I've gone and bought myself a new pair! Love this tartan blouse, it has an exposed zip at the back, I do love zips! And these shoes...well do I need to explain.

One Big Dissappointment!






When I realised the MTV awards were taking place this weekend, I was so excited to see what everyone was wearing on the red carpet. The awards are known for stars being slightly more outrageous than usual as MTV personifies a more funky attitude than other major red carpet events, however, 2008 has brought nothing but dissapointment! Looking through the photos, as I can think is WHAT THE ****! With all the great dresses on the catwalk shows this year, what happened??? Seeing as none of them made me smile, I didn't waste my time uploading them all, so heres a taster.

Thoughts? Worst red carpet outfits or not?

HOW TO: Leather Bandage dress


This is the perfect way to wear a leather bandage dress without looking too fancy dress/ sex worker/ 80's trash. Thoughts...

Shady lady!





Just came across these photos of Ashley from a recent photo shoot. Love this look, tres chic and funky. I'd so wear this, however, I'd prefer a more 'manly' blazer. Oh these photos make me love Ashley even more!

Get the Look: Gucci Fringe boots!



These Gucci Fringe boots are set to be a big hit this season, with the gold studs making them different from boots we have seen in past seasons. However, if you can't afford the £640 price tag why not pop down to Topshop and grab these flat fringe boots that are a very good copy for a fraction of the price.

4 women, 4 looks- you decide!





Here are 4 different party looks that I would wear. Which is your favourite?

Jeans and tee combo!



LC was out and about with her tag along sidekick Lo looking WOW in simple blue jeans and a white deep V tee with great accessories incuding YSL tribute sandals and Chanel bag. I would so rock this look and it is great for both the day and night. Another similar look was worn by Nicole Richie whilst housing hunting in the Holywood Hills. Love the Loub shoes!


Would you wear this as a night time look?

Lauren Conrad In Cavalli


When I saw this floral print dress on the catwalk I was trying to guess who would be first to wear it, LC didn't come to mind. It's nice to see her wearing a piece that's not from her own collection. Love the dress, and love it on her. 10/10!

Black Boots!


I think every girl should have a list of necessary items in her wardbrobe, and one of those items should be black knee high boots (and no not pointed/ stiletto heeled/ tacky boots). I have been looking everywhere for the perfect pair, but having not found one yet, I am thinking should I settle for these Topshop ones. I tried them on yesterday and they are the perfect fit around my calf, have a subtle slouch around the ankle and the heel height is perfect. But are they just too plain? Help me!

VS does shoes???


Having visited the US numerous times, it is pretty obvious that Victoria Secret's is huge! However, living across the pond, I never knew that they stocked shoes, or anything apart from lingerie for that matter, so when I did my daily browsing of fashiontoast.com and karlascloset.com, I was delighted to see them both blogging about these beauties. I was even more delighted to realised that VS ships to the UK, wahay!


So I've been sitting her for the last 15 mins trying to decide whether or not to order them? Yes or no?

Finally Arrived!


Those leather leggings that we have all been lusting over are finally going to be yours sometime this week (I'm guessing tomorrow). Yes, TOPSHOP.COM has finally announced that they will be releasing their 'most wanted' leather leggings from the UNIQUE range this week. Remember, the website gets updated at 6am, so set your alarms as these are set to be a sell out!

My love for BALMAIN!



I don't think I can really say much about this collection, the photos say it all.

Mutton dressed as Lamb?


Madonna celebrated her 50th birthday yesterday and celebrated with hubby Guy. She was seen out wearing an amazing Givenchy necklace but the rest of her outfit was somewhat questionable. Seeing as my mother is 50+ I'm not sure I would want to see her supporting this look. Is it time Madonna gave up trying to hold onto her youth?

Topshop- Tux Deluxe!

Whilst browsing through the latest Look Magazine, I came across Topshop's latest line called Tux Deluxe. 5 limited edition Tux Jackets for this season, from plain black to snake skin print but my fav has to be the fabulous Jacquard tux. Lets hope they are available in my local Topshop or online otherwise I'll be screwing.

p.s. Currently looking to find some photos of them, but so far unsuccesful!

Major Ruffles!


LC looked delightfully girly with a black ruffle high waisted skirt and simple green top. Though the look is a bit too girly for me and slightly too glam for the day time, I can't deny that she looks great! Thoughts?

The Love for Black Sequins...


The Love for Black sequins is very prominent in my wardrobe, infact any coloured sequins, but black are my favourite. If added correctly they can lift any outfit, but beware of over-tacky looking sequins, I sure have been a victim. Anyhow I'm bored, and browsing the Topshop website (I know, I don't have anything better to do) and came across this delightful sequin playsuit. But, problem number one, being a size 12 (US8) makes me think that I shouldn't even attempt to wear a playsuit without wanting to look atleast a stone heavier and secondly, over-shiny sequins will add to that extra stone, making me look atleast a stone and a half heavier. So why is it, that despite knowing these facts I still crave this little number. Either I lose a stone and then buy it, or I buy it and wear it like I have been imagining, with black opaque tights, boyfriend blazer and cute flat shoes. I think neither option is the correct one, but oh-well a girl can still dream!
