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!
