Top winter looks!

Hey guys,

I'm currently sitting in my room, huddled under blankets, refusing to leave my warm bed to venture outside to the cold and college. I know I am not alone. However, I do understand it is needed to leave the house, especially as it is the Yule tide season and presents won't buy themselves!!

It is therefore I would like to impart my recommendations for looking great while keeping warm!

1. Coats are key! I have three full length coats: one black - which is a must key staple! (it was in the sale in Wallis last year!), one tan/beige trench - it's been in outfit posts before and I love it! And I also have a new pink one that is fab, yet to be worn but I cannot wait to!

2. Wear Warm! Don't wear stuff that will give you pneumonia! It's not a good look! Put the shorts and mini skirts away unless worn with the thickest tights but seriously girls don't freeze to death in the name of fashion, it is not worth it!

3. Avoid the over layering look! If you wear a style don't mix it with 11 different patterns and textures attempting the looks you see in Vogue! Most of the time the layered looks are just achieved attempting to show off every bit of designer clothes they can and are with the aim of inspiring not copying!

4. This is for the lads! Christmas jumpers are really cute and most of you have good style (judging by my latest non uni day) but please ditch the chinos in vomit colours and wear jeans instead. It's a much better look. Oh and Levi's are very hot.

5. And lastly, have a merry christmas guys whatever you do. My christmas tree is going up today woo! My most important christmas accessory is my christmas pjs and slippers worn once a year with pride! This year it's pandas and hello kitty!

Luv you guys,

It's all white, but it's ok...

Hey guys,

I have recently become aware of a new trend that is either putting fear or delight into the hearts of fashionistas the world over.

The WHITE Stiletto is back. (Queue spooky, dramatic music) Now leading trendsetters such as SJP and the Duchess of Cambridge herself have been carrying off the trend in full confidence, yet the mere image of the shoes to some women causes a horror flash back to the 80's and the memory of fashion disasters of old.

Personally, I am much to young to remember the days when they first came into fashion but I have to say the women who have been wearing them look amazing, but, and it's a big but like all trends, they come with a health warning: there is a time and a place. These shoes are white, therefore rain and mud will make you look awful without any doubt, also they do draw the eye to the foot so keep that in mind if you have larger feet than some.

So I guess they will forever be shoe marmite, either loved or hated, what do you guys think?
